    No the guys that had that kind of stuff would always ask you to come over and look at something. The shop computers are clear for everything including games, facebook, and any other site like that.

    That's ok. If there's somebody I don't like, I go on their computer, upload a crapload of porn, and watch the hilarity ensue as they try to explain themselves.

    We don't do that but while in Australia some guy left his facebook profile up on a company computer. One of the guys changed his dating status from liking girls to liking guys. It took a few days for the fun to happen but he never went on facebook at work again. Although at my last job they took a goofy picture of me and put it on my ex bosse's computer as a screen saver and a background. The IT guy did that to him.

    i remember once leaving the classroom with my laptop open and when i came back someone had put that spinning penis thingy as my home page so it came up when i opened my browser. this was many years ago and i was a little shy back then so i just shut the laptop and sat there, instead of calling out the guy who did it. i bet people still think i was totally into that thing

    Ah that's "meat-spin" and people still play that prank on others if they leave their computers open. At least in the states they do.

    there's a strong case for redoing this thread and making it women-only safe-space. the men on this forum seem incapable of not totally ruining/dominating the thread

    just throwing that out there

    I think your right. 8th grade was right around the time that I fell out of love with math and I had some teachers that were absolutely horrid to me and that was when the bullying I experienced was at it's worst (To those who believe that a boy pulling on a girls pigtails means they like the girl, I guess calling a girl every name in the book and threatening to throw her out a second story window without being punished for even making the threat, means to them the guy's in love with her.). I still have some issues with life in general as a result of that year. But math, and a few other subjects became casulaties of it.

    Huh? So you want to preserve a society based on conflict and division between the races and sexes, and other identity politics?

    you're essentially advocating jamming your fingers in your ears and shouting "lalalala" at the top of your lungs. refusing to acknowledge discrimination does nothing to solve any of the problems you listed. but keep living in a delusional bubble if that's what floats your boat.

    Your reaction keeps suggesting you have no desire to talk about inequality, Vivec. Not very socialist (lol) of you.

    @Rogue_Ten: http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_facto...ew_research_shows_that_men_feel_insecure.html

    I sent this to SLG in mid-September saying basically why did they need a study to confirm it. But all the behavior of d00ds in this thread suggests most posters would also have an issue with their female partner earning more.

    Yeah, ignore my other posts in the thread, brah. Like this one, for example.
    Your continued attempts to paint me as some sort of anti-equality promoter fails because the evidence constantly shows I'm generally with the progressives on most, if not all, issues.

    So kindly take a hike.

    Ender you are the epitome of male chauvinism disguised as a the brave white knight. You like James Bond and F1 and said Rush is the best movie. You declared yourself king of the feminists who acts the to everyone that doesn't agree or comes to the aid of all women. This king of the feminists shtick is probably just to get a woman's phone number. One wonders if you end up like Darth Sapient.
