Feminist MP scoffs at International Mens' Day watch


    (Original post by TimmonaPortella)
    Then simply understand that you are not meaningfully engaging anyone, and that your posts are nothing but self-indulgent irrelevancies.
    It's indicative that you skipped over the part where I refuted your claim that what was being dealt with was meaning, rather than an issue of definitional fiat.

    Someone who is not familiar with what they're talking about is not meaningfully engaging anyone - e.g. someone using a 'simpletons' account of feminism isn't meaningfully engaging anyone because what they're presenting is a strawman and a false discourse. These are true self-indulgent irrelevancies. It's not irrelevant to indicate that false discourses are precisely that - false. Because they rely on a false or incomplete understanding of feminism.

    It's not meaningless, contrary to your assertion here, to point out error. For example, if you say "It's raining outside today" and I correct you and say "No, it's not." What I'm doing isn't meaningless, it's a correction of error.

    Moreover, tu quoque, applying your argument to yourself, you're simply engaging in self-indulgent irrelevancies because you're not actually debating any sort of content nor pointing out any error. You're failing to contribute meaningfully.
