Support hockeydude/memphis against the patriarchal oppressor Gustaf who doesn't want anyone talking to his women.

While it's true I don't want my women talking to people in general, having them to talk to guys like them actually benefits me, since I look nicer by comparison. Makes my life easier. That of course assumes it is in a public space so I don't have to worry about their safety. I wouldn't inflict a one-on-one conversation with either of them even on a woman I dislike.

This post reeks of sexism, Gustaf.  I wonder how your girlfriend feels that you dont trust her? 

I would feel belittled and untrusted by such a sentiment.

It also gives the impression that you are insecure.

Of course you might be exaggerating your real beliefs here, so I give you the benefit of the doubt.

I'm rooting for the sexism itself.

Neither. They both sound like caricatures.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

I didn't read it but I'm going to assume Gustaf is right.

As a general rule of thumb, this is a good policy to go by:

The side Memphis isn't on.

Have any of the participants in the argument ever been the recipient of unwanted catcalls?
no?
Then maybe they should STFU.
You guys have no idea how demeaning and frightening it can be to have one or more strange men leer at you or make unwanted advances at you.
Oh and Gustaf makes the right argument.

Gustaf. I feel like a lot of people were misinterpreting him, too.

Not sure what you're referring to here but that post was obviously a joke. Which makes it amusing that Memphis decided to put an out of context quote from it in his signature. Cheesy

Gramps, please elaborate on how I am like the taliban again? They're just as fine with sexual abuse of women as you are, you know!

It should surprise nobody that I voted for Gustaf.

I admit to some reservations about the haughty attitude with which he tends to wage his battles, but his position on feminism is muy righteous (and does not remotely entail any of the pitfalls that HD and memphis imagine).

I am a bit of an asshole, I'll grant you that, but a lot of what people take offense at in my posts is just a form of irony. I'm far from as arrogant as people perceive me.
