The fact that someone would take a lecture and string together a slideshow like that over it ... dude, what's wrong with you?

You didn't make the YouTube video, did you?  The comment was directed to the guy who put the video together.

Comment by Brandon Captain on December 30, 2011 at 11:44am

I *never* belittled women during this conversation, and I'd appreciate it if you stopped putting words in my mouth and telling me what *my* intent is.

Comment by Joseph P on December 29, 2011 at 7:31pm

It is pretty warped, yeah.  I think Maruli's reaction is a little over the top, but it is pretty stupid and pointless.  I think Kelly hit it more or less dead on.

The fact that someone would take a lecture and string together a slideshow like that over it ... dude, what's wrong with you?  Saying that there's someone on YouTube with no sense of context is a little obvious though, isn't it?

Comment by Earther on December 29, 2011 at 7:18pm

Totally weird.  I watched like th first minute only, does the whole lecture go like this?  A seemingly "intelectually" spoken conversation about ancestors with only images of seductive women, him... the context just doesn't seem to go together.  It's kinda like warming your hands over a picture of a fire.

Comment by TNT666 on December 29, 2011 at 5:53pm

Brandon you started the hostility, any time you belittle women, that is hostility, any time you dismiss female objectification, that is hostility. Women are in self defence mode against your shows of hostility. Hostility begets self-defence.

Comment by Brandon Captain on December 29, 2011 at 3:32pm

Heh, hostility begets hostility. I think I've been pretty reasonable all things considered. two of my closest friends are a bisexual woman and a lesbian, and they're really awesome people; even though they're the ones that while walking through a department store want me to walk faster so they can catch another glimpse of the hottie that just walked around the corner ahead of us. It's a sexual response, and it's not just one that men have.

If the issue here is in seeing such things on AtheistNexus, that's understandable. However, I find Maruli's attitude far more distasteful. I came here for discussions and to meet people, not to get into flame wars and watch others get bent out of shape when I politely articulate my thoughts on something that is being discussed.

Comment by Joseph P on December 29, 2011 at 3:25pm
*perhaps to nowhere near the degree

*hands Brandon a shovel*
May as well speed up you progress, man.
Comment by Joseph P on December 29, 2011 at 3:19pm
Then address him in some way similar to Dr. Kelly's comment to him. Your response was degrading to an entire group of people, perhaps to nowhere the degree of that demonstrated in the video, but still not in any way approaching constructive.
Comment by Brandon Captain on December 29, 2011 at 3:14pm

you think photos of female models in sexy poses is sexist, your attitude toward a man politely raising questions about that opinion is hostile and dismissive, and on top of it you're a lesbian. I don't think it takes a psychologist to see what's going on here... There is someone sexist here, and it isn't me.

Comment by Maruli Marulaki on December 29, 2011 at 3:08pm

Joseph, the sexism in not instantly understanding the offense of these pictures is extreme.  Such sexism is beyond anything, that I am willing to spend my time in teaching someone.    It really is his mother's job to teach him, not mine.  

AN is not the place, where I as a woman should be offended neither by such pictures nor by any male defending them.  

Pornographic sites are elsewhere.
