Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Sorry for leaving behind my previous attempt at being above this thread- but curiosity got the better of me and I decided a response would be solid practice for press games That is indeed what the forum is for. Glad there are still people around who recognise it. :-) Thank you so much for it. I wou...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

You don't think that this new wave of (I hesitate to use the word feminist as it doesn't resemble much at all of traditional feminism) thinking is a product of left wing philosophy? Not all lefties have been infected by the madness, but the origins are very much on that side of the spectrum. It's li...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

You can dismiss the harm done to women and men by the ideological dogma of the supposedly progressive left all you want, yoyo, but I will stand for equality and treating individuals with respect regardless.

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Nice try? What are you talking about? It was yet another sexist statement after a series of others. If Doom wanted to expand on that point she could have, and it may have made for a more constructive conversation. If it was meant to be a reminder that women are considered ignorant then it failed aby...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

You can save your sexist dribble about evidence being somehow feminine for someone else. I believe that you noticed the dripping sarcasm and simply ignored it as an excuse to call Doom427 sexist. Proud of you, chap! An excuse? I called Doom427 sexist because that's what they are. All that nonsense ...

Re: War, what is it good for?

Answer: lose all land gained since the start of the war. Define "the start of the war". I imagine many Ukrainians will agree with you, but they may well be agreeing different things. One massive headache for the West that isn't given nearly enough coverage is there are now an enormous number of Ukr...

I'm a tad confused. This seems to have been reported quite extensively across all the usual news outlets.

Re: War, what is it good for?

Pre-invasion it was roughly 60-40, or maybe closer to 55-45, now across the whole country it is closer to 90-5. And in the areas occupied by Russia, the hatred of Russia is very high. Though some are not willing to b'é open about it, because if they openly express anti-Russia sentiments and Russia ...

Re: War, what is it good for?

But in all seriousness, do you really think that any of these areas support Russia's invasion in the present moment? It's highly unlikely. However there's a massive difference between supporting or opposing an invasion, and how they might like the end of the invasion to play out. I suspect that a l...

Re: War, what is it good for?

It is amazing you think you can reliable identify propoganda when your entire position requires reducing Ukrainians to objects in your narrative where we are the subjects. Utter bollocks, and a sad indictment of your unwillingness to even attempt to understand other people's viewpoints. You have li...

Re: War, what is it good for?

You can assert that we have failed abysmally, but that requires at pretty Imperialist idea that the events of history always unfold according to the whims of power White Western interests. Ukrainian interests and Russian interests are reduced to non-actors responding to our great Imperial projects....

We don't get to decide whether the Ukrainian fight for their own territory. The are actual people with their own Sovereignty. We can only decide to support them or let them die. Let's cut out that crap for a start. Tens of thousands more people have died because of our support for Ukraine than woul...

Re: War, what is it good for?

This counter factual is unprovable. A pretty vacuous statement. Of course it's unprovable. Nothing we are able to discuss about the future of Ukraine and alternative ways of doing things in the past is provable. If you want proof you will be permanently disappointed. The only thing that we know for...

Re: War, what is it good for?

It's also worth keeping in mind that the Russians are also pursuing strategies and it would be foolish to think of their conventional army as a spent force limited to trying to hold the line and managed retreat. It would not come as a complete surprise if the Russians use the current feeling of comp...
