Your response was extraordinarily condescending.

Over 80% of communication is nonverbal. You have insufficient information to judge what I was thinking or emoting when I wrote that post. So don’t try. Ask me. Specifically. And I’ll tell you.

And for fuck’s sake, stop talking about how certain behaviors are natural because we’re a “sexually dimorphic species”.

No. I’ll take the discussion where I please, thank you very much, especially when biology is germane to the discussion. If a discussion of such matters bothers you, you are welcome to block me; but I will not be shouted down by you or anyone else.

Trust me, your approval is not a factor in my self-image.

No one gives a fuck as to whether or not misogynistic behavior is natural.

First off, misogyny was not discussed in my post, although you’re exhibiting a bit of it yourself when you try to tell women like myself to “stop talking about” something. If you’re going to criticize a behavior, it’s best not to engage in it yourself.

Secondly, learn how to form a coherent argument:

Misogyny and sexism in general may be “natural” for a sexually dimorphic species, but we should still try to stomp it out whenever possible. Same thing with transphobia.

I agree, and said nothing to the contrary.

So what’s your problem?
