anyone who says I deserve or anyone deserves this
if you want a pot against the back of your head while you are sleeping, or think that is ok just because of your sex you need your head sorted!
and that isn't the tip of the iceberg from my actual experience, no historical stuff from a thousand years ago or more which I didn't experiance or could of been a bloke perpetrating and something which no-one can not actually do anything about now.
those three can be as bigoted as they want about men, but one thread dedicated to the injustice men receive, come on, please, no more than an hour! they should of been shut up long before they were! egalitarian? this depends on whos equality (referring to who is making the decision of what is equal, instead of a consensus of moderation standards here of which i am normally satisfied)
I am not saying the mods were being bias; (definitely not) deliberately so; or in favour of any side or who was right or wrong. but it is strange free speech was used by one yet another uses the power they have, which in all fairness should of been used earlier, if one side gets a thread and hijacks another, the other side do not get one thread to try and discuss the actual reality of present day "western" society?
I have been following with astonishment the male/female arguments today. I normally use Dhamma Wheel as a source of sanity, compassion, inspiration and learning. I have found today's outbursts truly off-putting.
I didn't want to cause offence so kept away from the discussion threads. But it now seems to me that it might be timely to remind participants that we're supposed to be practicing metta and right speech here. I find the Buddha's words on loving kindness very relevant :-http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .amar.html
Perhaps people on both 'sides' still feeling aggrieved would consider checking their views and behaviour against this standard?
This is meant in the spirit of reconciliation.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.John Stuart Mill
