I never considered that an insult. We're all presumptuous from time to time. It was an accurate descriptor for what I saw her doing. If that is insulting to her, then I was unaware until this moment. Admittedly, the connotation of the word is usually negative, but I was just calling it as I saw it.
How does being a lesbian or not relevant to this conversation?
Ok Brandon, you wanna play math? YOU threw the first insult by calling Maruli "presumptuous" in your very post here. So there. Your very first post attacked Maruli's opinion rather than the youtube item. You should at least have the decency to fess up to that instead of sheepishly trying to lie your way out of this.
although, I would like to mention that I misread her statement "I am a WOMAN" as "I want a WOMAN," as that was the reason I thought she was a lesbian.
I think you need to look over the posts again. I was insulted several times before I pointed out the obvious: Maruli is a sexist, hastily insecur4, condescending, pretentious, presumptuous, and arrogant. I was insulted by her for voicing my opinion, not the opposite. I'm done here.
This particular youtube production stinks of idiocy. Only a stupid idiot would juxtapose soft porn onto a scientific lecture. These objectified women belong in a medium (magazine, video, whatever) for personal viewing.
The first stupidity, in my eyes it was an affront to science and rational thinking by the person having made the video, was this juxtaposition. The second stupidity trophy goes to the person who posted it here. The third stupidity is for males on this AN singles group to belittle the opinions of females on this site for simply expressing their opinion, as Brandon did to Maruli. Women on a singles page are allowed to express their opinions of a video without being backlashed.
He could have simply stated he disagreed with Maruli without putting her down. That would have been the mature and sentient behaviour. It is there that Brandon failed.
These types of happenings are one of the reasons fewer females come to atheist groups. Simple lack of respect in the way people discuss.
Thank you, Lee. You and I are on the same page with this. Very well put!
Page 3 on this comment wall, at the moment.
Ah. TNT was going a little heavy on the blanket statements, admittedly.
"Any time you dismiss female objectification," for example. Gotta pick your battles. You're going to get a little objectification, due to the basic nature of the male mind. You've got to come down on the egregious examples ... which ... I dunno, this video very well may have been such an example.
... but then Maruli just went completely berserk about it and muddied the issue too much for me to care about it anymore.
my last comment was in response to TNT666
