i’d be interested in this debate, if @whom replies!


didn’t think about that, thanks!

sorry if this sounds harsh

A tip, say ‘I’ statements instead of ‘you’ statements




yeah, more accurately i should have looked up the minimum gestation time necessary for a baby to survive outside given current tech rather than 8.9 months


Cloud notepad besides standardnotes?
Standardnotes has been lagging on my phone for the past 2 months. Just factory reset my phone and it still takes a long time to open the app and individual notes. I want a notepad for text that can sync online that i can access from my computer and phone

I'm waiting for someone to say abortion should be allowed at 8.9 months cause i want to hear the reasoning. **Here's my hot take**: (ib4 ban) we should develop tech like artificial uteruses and just move unwanted baby/fetus/idk-the-terminology into these instead BUT we should also have a comprehensive social welfare program to raise ALL children/humans, and not conservative welfare where it's like 1 mother figure taking care of 6 children with food stamps.

A lot of normies text with like 0 ‘intimacy’
If I send a lemming a long reply, they often reply with a similar length reply. Normies often like 1 word answer reply in dm to like a paragraph. An interesting way to observe who the leets are.

Analyze is the verb version of analsis

Ended up cutting the inner seams shorters in a bathroom and stuffing my one pocket with my phone and wallet, which gave me enough space.

For males, but females free free time chime in too. As a male, jeans are too rough for me.

Wouldnt avatar korra be too warm all the time?
It looks like she's often in not cold climates and she's wearing what look like heavy boots/pants and has her winter jacket wrapped around her waist. I had a jacket wrapped around my waist today and it hot and i was way too hot

I think I’ll print some of these off and strategically leave them around work.



Does anyone else spend their days off doing not much? And feel bad about it?
On my days off I don't want to rush and try to like jam so many things in. Also I feel like I'm tired from my days of working. It does make me feel bad though, that on my days off I haven't done much. Not being productive eniugh. Criticize by my inner capitalist/#hustlegang nonsense.

my matrix is down atm but i will do this when its back up. Nw i don’t log on evy day either :)


. Seems to me more plausible that reading actual literature would affect things more than consuming entertainment – which most people understand as being shallow.

iirc watching tv shows that have a african cast causes caucasians to build parasocial relationships with these africans, which improves caucasian perception of africans. [citation needed] So i think educated via entertainment is possible.

“universities are leftist propaganda machines” talking point (which I believe is largely bullshit).

From what i know it seems like “universities are leftist machines” is true. A lot/all of science is left. Ex climate change. Ex 2, turns out poverty lowers like performance therefore we should eradicate poverty.


these days.

i bet it was always. I’d be surprised is 1000 yrs ago we were less aggressive


tldr: as a male leftist working in this area, i am not sure if this group would be able to gain the necessary knowledge about patriarchy, sexual violence, abusive behavior, and other aspects of “toxic” masculinity.

It sounds like we agree that leftist men need a lot of work in this area. maybe that could be what a movement solely could be based around


I’m not sure what the point would be, or what the exact plan is.

Same, but just spit balling. If the men’s right movement was absorbed into a leftwing movement, that would help boost our left causes


resolve the paradox (whether apparent or real) of the “feminist man”.

do you have thoughts on how to do this? Or like what i’d look like?


complaining that can go nowhere

you just described 50% of what i’ve seen on the ‘men gone their own way’ sub


Men’s Liberation subreddit

my biggest criticism of that subreddit is it’s basically all like scholars posting hoty-toty articles. Whereas like the ‘men gone their own way’ subreddit are like 50% dudes who were just dumped yesterday and are ranting hard. We could do with a men’s liberation that doesn’t automatically (via automod) remove posts by some dude who is just here to rant about his break up, but as long as the rant isn’t misogynstic.

I didn’t word this the best, and their automod is a bit different than that, but i think you get my drift


as a long long term strategy i agree. In the short run however, i think we need something to help disarm the men’s right activists


Hope this doesn’t disappoint, but if someone rebranded ‘All lives matter’ to absorb like trump supporters into basically being blm, that sounds only beneficial


See other posts like:

afaik, these are ‘replies’ not ‘posts’. technically speaking


I cannot speak to what branding would make this palatable to men, but I hope you find some way of encouraging them to see cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry, as general adult tasks instead of women’s ones. Please. For all of our sakes.

Ive seen a study that says that men who does housework have more/better sex with their wives. I think it has huge potential to find the study and like mass market it to guys. After it, it seems like a lot of guys work out only because they think it’ll lead to more sex, heck even some roommate only cleaned up on days they were bringing home a gf.


I’m at work and my pants suddenly started sacking me. Help?
With every footstep I take, the like groin seam thing is hitting the boys slightly, which wasn't a problem initially but now I'm having a pretty bad time right now. Cant go home to change pants. I wear these pants everyday and it's never been a problem. Any emergency fixes I could do right now? Why is this happening?

Anyway there must be a way to disable it. did you search?

yes i disabled it, but still sucks a little


If you take a lot at the Men Right subreddit, imo, politics looks like the life and soul of their movement, with men secondary

this might just be us have different immutable perspectives and what focus and politics means.

But your concept of men’s right, but the left version, ex no misogyny


Fiction made for women/girls might have less libertarian values? Which might partially explain why women have more leftish values?

Follow up to https://lemmy.perthchat.org/post/36465 I came across an interesting idea, which is the post title. Thoughts? If true, this might say something about why i know way more women with leftish values then men. Ex, romantic movies. 500 days of summer: protagonist isn't special in any way. Vs Avengers movies: literally the protagonists couldn't be more god's chosen hero. my hero academia and a lot of animes and green lantern: you can do anything if you have enough will power, regardless of the system around you.

Looking for an online offline calendar that can sync
Someone told me to use proton calendar, and I have been. It doesn't work offline. Like when I'm offline, I can't add new events. I would like it if I could add new events, and then when it got connection, it would sync. I think I tried tutanota a few months ago, can't remember what happened but it didn't have what I was looking for.

Adult fiction seems to just be fiction that has detailed sex scenes. Is there a genre of fiction that’s about serious adult topics that isn’t sex scenes?
I'm not really interested in sex scenes, but I am interested in other topics that might not be suitable for like teen books or fiction or whatnot. Does the genre I'm looking for have some kind of name?

Would you be opposed to a leftwing men’s movement?
Not the right wing "men's right" thing. Some kind of left version, that would fundamentally be a feminist movement but with different branding. Different branding would be necessary to absorb a bunch of men into it.

Anyone else impressive how aggressive ‘are you okay’ has become?
Just saw a security guard kick out a homeless guy and he begun the interaction with 'are you okay'. I've been pressured via 'are you okay' a few times. Obviously it's a different story if like your friend asks 'r you okay'. Kinda like i was watching terry from fatal fury - 'are you okay?' then ~~buster wolf~~ *kicks out guy*. I guess the fatal fury devs noticed something similar too? Similarly, i've heard god bless is sometimes an insult around texas region

Western fiction emphasizes libertarian values. Any fiction that emphasizes other values?
A lot of Western fiction goes along the lines of: the world's in danger and since you're God's chosen person, only you can save the world. You don't require that much assistance from anybody else because you pulled yourself up by your own bootstraps Even if it involves a team, it's like a team off like 10 people, that the protagonist had to pull together in some way shape or form due to their personal charisma or something. In real life, to take down the evil dictator or whatever it needs a lot more than 10 people, and since you're not God's chosen person, you could even die. Additionally a lot of Western fiction places big emphasis on money. The protagonist will have access to very expensive equipment frequently. The evil dictator is basically straight out of a psych ward, which I guess is not offend conservatives, but It's rare that the evil dictator is even racist. Like Trump would make a great villain. This is kind of a follow-up to my personal branding question. But basically protagonists have done a great job with personal branding. --- I think it would help our cause a lot if there was fiction that emphasized basically the opposite of what I listed above. And it should go mainstream. Any examples of good fiction? Especially if it's free and visual

Looking up a friend on my Facebook friend list is like Russian roulette - half the time they have deleted me as a friend
Specifically people I met a long time ago or people i haven't spoken to as much Overall Facebook's a very dramatic social media. The fact that people's faces r on it calms a bunch of people down. But still, lots of of toxicity in the DMs It's a pretty trashy social media that emphasizes the advantages of being antisocial
