    Well, when feminism came about, discrimination against men was unheard of, so anti-sexism or whatever instead of feminist (something related to females) would not have made sense imo. I do agree though that most of these terms should now be defunct. Policeperson, fireperson(?)
    Quite true. But I believe if feminism wishes to continue in the 21st century western world, then it is in need of a name change :yep: Firstly, a lot of men feel excluded by the term feminism and secondly feminism was created at a time when women were clearly at a great disadvantage. However I feel a new term is needed to take into account new problems in our society that include issues effecting men as well. Most prisoners are male, males underperforming at all levels of education compared to females, paternity leave is not equal to maternity leave and a whole host of other issues :yep:

    Also there is an interesting village in India where the gender lines are the opposite way around and women rule society and men are discriminated against >_>

    Meh, my French will never be as good as my English no matter how many books I borrow from the library, as long as I live here. It's alright, I speak three international languages, I have no ground to complain.

    ^All the people repping you have low reps. It is not quantity but quality of the rep. You want to get repped by people with higher reputations as then your rep will go up faster.

    I occasionally look at my rep points to see if I can think of an interesting historical occurrence that took place in that year. Currently I have the same number of rep points as the year that James Joyce's Ulysses was published.

    I realise how the rep system works and I know that I'm still owed some rep assuming people can't rep me less than 1 at a time. :rolleyes::lol:

    Someone doesn't like TH. :teehee:

    Nonono, no reason to complain I suppose. Your English is impeccable. Although if you did return to France, everything would most likely return, my uncle has been back from Holland for some years now, and his level of Dutch has decreased considerably as he never uses it :sadnod:

    Yes if you don't speak the language a long time then you do become rusty I had to learn English at around 10 years of age and now I do a speak it fluently.

    And my Dutch isn't that great now either.
