    A view from the girls.....

    Post by papa_umau on Wed 16 Sep 2015, 11:01 am

    Here is a list of ways that the news providers can lighten up the news as seen from the women's site "Allwomentalk".

    I think that we here on ROB should be trying a little bit harder to engage the females that read and on occasion write to the board and here is a good place to start.

    What do you think of these subjects and will you support my drive to try to be more aware of the female point of view?

    I wonder if our Angie will support your premise Paps ?

    You have said in the past that you are a male feminist but that is a tricky path for a man to follow. Suspect

    Angie usually visits ROB on Saturdays and I am sure she will comment on your reference to her on this subject.

    Hey, I should have written that ! Suspect

    Thanks anyway Papa, as you are truly a male feminist and there are not a lot of those in a pound.

    Great link and thanks for that too.

    I prefer the forum as it is, I don't think it needs changing to reflect feminine values, a rip off is a rip off!

    That's a bit strange coming from a female HG. Suspect

    I mean, that in most walks of life it is the men that call the shots and it is the women that do as they are told.

    That can NEVER be right no matter how you look at it.

    The ROB forum is not changing in any way even if it might give the ladies a voice that is only fair.

    And yes Angie, I AM a "male feminist" and proud to be such.

    I am a 'soft feminist', I believe in equality between the sexes, but nowadays there are many Ultra Feminists who want men to be subjugated, and even incarcerated in concentration camps, which is ridiculous in my opinion. I believe in balance, and I feel that ROB is balanced already, and therefore needs no changing. Many ripoffs impinge equally upon male and female. If I spotted any which are particularly detrimental to women, such as possible inequality of pensions (which I am currently researching), be sure I would post them.

    Women are perfectly capable of pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, they just need to show their abilities. Going overboard by artificially slanting things to the feminine advantage really doesn't do us any favours; it just cultivates an atmosphere of 'entitlement', which really is patronising. Some women do not want to be equal; the fashion addicted, celebrity obsessed are a case in point. Women are their own worst enemies in this respect, on one hand the Radical Feminists and on the other the ones who can't see past their next pair of Jimmy Choos.

    I am really quite afraid of the Radicals affraid

    Of course you are right HG, that any group that is based on extremist beliefs is not one we moderates can support.

    Having said that I still believe that we should all try to help with the situation that many women find themselves in, in a man's world.

    I guess my stance here is a bit like when the politicos have a more gender-balanced pool of females to choose to put in place for positions of power.

    The feminists have called this the "gender glass ceiling" where women can get only so high and no higher.

    As I said before, ROB is NOT changing in any way as it has always been pro-women rather than against-women and I think that is the best way for an open-to-the-world forum to go.

    That may be true Papa, but I wish there were more of us on ROB.

    That is one of the reasons I try very hard to make ROB "gender-attractive", if you know what I mean.

    A lot of men and quite a few internet forums are very sexist and I would hope that ROB would never be like that.

    Not if I notice it first, of course.
