That even when men are trying to do the right thing and be sensitive to women, they often still do the wrong thing for the right reasons.
I think this thread is not an example for patronizing. There might be women who don't like to be subjects to those discussions, and I would prefer to not be either. Maybe sometime it's not necessary any more?
Like shouting at a deaf man, or trying guide a blind man by grabbing his arm, their attempts to 'fix things' are often worse than what they are trying to fix.
yeah, you could ask before grabbing his arm, and it might be annoying if it happens often, but it's still showing a good will and is better than running in the blind man's way. And I don't read anything comparable to grabbing one man's arm here. Maybe you can ask one of your experts if pemungkah did "the wrong thing" in their eyes?
which completely detract from the less frequent but far more serious issues & matters that *need* to be dealt with.
oh yeah, we should do something about the global warming. eat less meat - very easy and it works for me! (SCNR)

    Having spent the last 8 days defending, against the assembled hoards, my right to say that I found something that someone else linked, funny, as a result of his implications leveled at me, but not the original poster, I have my own very clear opinion on that.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    RIP Neil Armstrong
