    That'll be the bit of the thread you just made up then? :erm: Nobody was discussing discrimination until you posted about it.
    Are you daft?

    The whole thread was relying on the preconceived notion that feminism is about perceptions of gender equality and political activism and had nothing to do with the innate differences between brains based on exposure to sex hormones.

    Not necessarily. Making fun of anything or anyone is fine but it is respectful to temper those jokes and opinions to individuals though this should not be enforced by law. For example someone told me this joke the other day 'New car being launched in Portugal, sold as having space in the boot for a small child, called the Renault McCann'. That's something people should have a right to say, but would I say it to someone whose child has just gone missing? No. Not because I should be legally prevented but because I should use my common sense.

    It's perfectly acceptable to mock an individual generally, if someone walks into something or says something stupid they often end up being the target of banter for a while, but people should use their common sense. Satire as a whole should never be restricted by law based on feelings.

      But usually you play it with friends who know what it is about. Totally different to saying random offensive **** in public.

        What makes the language feminist? Does it shout "RAPE" instead of "syntax error" ?
