How to interpret the bias of genders as gender bias · 1:13pm Apr 22nd, 2016

A recent article in the New Republic by Andrew Piper and Richard Jean So, Women Write About Family, Men Write About War, says, "Data analysis shows that women authors are still stereotyped in book reviews. Despite a century’s worth of women’s rights movements... male (and sometimes female) writers still talk about female authors through the lens of “The Lady Writer.”"

"Show, don't tell" is sexist · 4:09am Mar 20th, 2017

My regular readers probably know by now that I am hardly the first person to cry “patriarchy!” However--and this seems incredible to me, owing to the popularity of the subject within the very den of third-wave feminism, English Literature departments--my Google-fu finds no other discussion of the issue, so it seems I am about to be just that:

“Show, don’t tell” is sexist.

I just need to vent my anger · 11:36am Jun 23rd, 2020

I find it offensive that my oldest sister's attitude towards gender is ignorant and close-minded. And she had the audacity to say that I should carry the heavy stuff because of my gender and be a gentleman.

To me, that term is both a compliment and an attack on gender. Clearly, it's the latter. If she learned to be sexist from her pathetic and abusive father, shame on him! And then her husband had the nerve to tell me about this "man should protect woman" bullshit.

Halo Legends, reviewed by a Tumblr user, eh. · 10:06pm Mar 4th, 2016

Watched it so you don’t have to:
Halo Legends

I appreciate that I’m very late to this party, but it recently came out on Netflix. Frankly I’m glad I didn’t spend money on it.

Some minor spoilers may follow, I don’t recommend that you care enough about this piece of media to worry about that though, because I don’t recommend actually watching it.

I worked in a restaurant which had toys which come with kid-meals. The executives figure that sex-based toys are a good idea. I, along with most of my coworkers, both male and female, disagree on principle. All workers disagree in practice:

A Parody Of The "Needs To Be Said" Postings · 3:08am Dec 28th, 2021

Black lives matter. - But my matters more.

All lives will not matter until black lives matter. - I never said ALL lives mattered, so... uh, I don't care, I suppose.

I oppose racism. - Depends on whose being racist towards whom. If you insult my kind that's obviously bad, but if we insult you, then I don't have a problem with that.

I oppose sexism. - Yeah, men and women are equal, as long as they're real men and women.
