James Travil brought it up: We don't have enough women on WB. Why is that so ?
I guess it has to do with the fact that interests are different. While men are more into economy and politics, women are more into family and relations. Sorry, I'm simplifying, I know. No insult there to any lady :-)
But you see, when I'm talking with Jeanne, we talk about music and the past, and we have a really good time. When I talk to George, it's about the economy and loss of jobs. When I talk to Ric, I talk to a person who thinks above these things, a philosoph. When I talk to Michael, he fucks me and I fuck him about Swissness and US imperialism, but finally we could have a beer together no sweat.
Ladies here might be, because they are mostly more emotional in discussions than we men, scared off because the language we use is ..... not really appropriate when seeing other blogs where people are censored. But hey, that's REAL LIFE talk. And that's why I'm still on here.
We need more ladies here for sure. But then, the ladies also have to accept that this place is not a BEEP BEEP place when it's getting tough in a discussion.
I mean, there is feminism, right ? Which means that women demand equal rights and all, and we men don't deny that.
And we also want them to say fuck when they want to and tell us what they think about world politics. Because a FUCK is an EMOTION.
BTW: I find that women are much more reasonable when it comes to politics, arms and war. Maybe because they can give BIRTH.
We should more listen to them, without losing our own self-esteem. But we also have to remind them that we're not all egoistic, prick-oriented assholes who want to suppress women. And that we want out share of "equality" too. It is no progress for anyone that the advantages we men had before are now turned into the opposite for women.
Mutual respect for both is what we need.
So women, come around and join WB :-)
