Canadian Man Faces 6 Months in Jail For Disagreeing With Feminists on Twitter submitted by BretsFan4Ever to news

I don't understand why people can't understand that divisiveness won't get you anywhere. You're not helping yourself or your cause when you do things like this. If you ever get to the point where you think it is ok to ruin someone's life simply because they disagree with you, you need to check your damn self.

Has college become more repressive? submitted by mrskeletaldootdoot to AskVoat

I totally agree that this is a general phenomenon and not isolated to colleges. You can see it happening anywhere you have aggregates of people with opinions. For whatever reason, the middle ground is never good enough for either extreme, and gets attacked until it either becomes more extreme or disappears. You see it on reddit, any comment section, and hell, even in US politics. Compromise and middle ground are dirty words, and to concede any points is seen as weakness. Maybe there's just something about people that makes them tend to polarize, maybe its the result of our society. I tend to think that its easier for people to come together under strong, absolute ideologies, and they push the extremes because you all agree by default, and can circlejerk your way into feeling socially accepted. The internet really facilitates this, and so those strong social pressures to fit in and be a part of a group result in the mess we're in now.

Yeah, I can't say this was my experience either. To be fair, I majored in the sciences, but even the Women and Gender studies class that I took didn't fault anyone for disagreeing or taking issue with certain points that people made. I heavily criticized some of the conclusions the readings came to, as well as the divisiveness I saw in general feminist rhetoric and was thanked for my input and criticisms. I mean, some teachers feel the need to push their agendas on students, but that's an issue of crappy people, not indicative of Universities in general being propaganda machines.

Equality may imply sameness, but as far as I'm concerned it doesn't mean sameness. I think it is important to emphasize the distinction. No, men and women are not the same, but they can be treated equally. The same way you account for variables in a statistical analysis, you can give men and women equality while accounting for their differences.

Well, we've established that men and women are not the same, especially when it comes to physical capabilities. So holding men and women to the same standard would not be treating them equally. Adjusting for lower base physical capacity for women wouldn't be special treatment as I see it, it merely makes the standards functionally equal. Or rather, it creates an equivalent standard.

Well, at that point you give different jobs to different people in accordance with ability. We can all serve in the military, doing jobs that suit us best. Some women do have physical capacities on the level that men do, so they can carry heavy things or whatever. Likewise, men who have a physique that is below the male norm would also not be excluded. Everyone in the military needs to be at a base level of fitness, which can be ascertained by a test that has gender equivalent standards. Other jobs can have gender neutral standards based on what those tasks require. This way, everyone is serving at their own capacity.
