What exactly about the current "approach" do you feel is wrong? I'm not getting that from your replies.

It's not the "current "approach"", it's this approach to this vote. Despite debate on the contrary, the only option to vote was defended by 1 and seconded by another, it doesn't seem to me to be the best approach regarding said "debate on the contrary" which I already explained and I don't know why you ignore what it means when I say I'd like to have had the other options to vote. Would it make sense we would actually explore which options are best and, only after, vote on them? It does to me.

I'm not ignoring what it means: what you're saying makes no sense to me and I want clarification, specifics, so I can understand.

What other options do you want? We debated and the amendment went to a vote. What specifically was wrong with this process? What are you looking for?

I employ sexism when I don't know what to say. *

First the "marriage counseling" comment, then the fucking rude frivolous lady picture, now this?

You are the insulting coward, Delfos. I may have allowed my anger to get ahold of me more today than usual, but at least I have the decency not to pretend I didn't do something after I clearly did.

Don't even try to act like you'd have behaved the same way towards a man.

wtf are you talking about

1st the marriage counseling has everything to do with exaggerating something I did or didn't do, it would have happened the same either you were a man or a woman, maybe you're the one being sexist.

the "lady picture" was actually a drawing of a supermarket shelf and someone going shopping, as illustrative to EXPLORING OPTIONS...looking at many brands and having actual choice.

somehow you interpret completely wrong, which isn't surprising, I've come to expect prejudice from you.

As someone who abstained in this vote, I think it may be appropriate for me to clarify what I intended with my vote.

I intended to abstain from affecting its result. I decided that I would rather not weigh in on this decision, and preferred the matter to be settled by people who did want to weigh in.

Very insulting. You don't know me Allama, clearly, not many people do, but I can't accept you coming here insulting me this way. You should just accept the fact you don't understand what I say instead of clinging to your misinterpretations.

When I don't understand what you say, I openly admit it and ask for clarification (not that I'm likely to get any).

In this case, you posted sexist things and now are trying to pretend you didn't by shifting focus to me "insulting" you. Not buyin' it.

I would never, it's your prejudice talking, just like those other times I've told you.

you're just stubborn to interpret the worse in me, if it has a different definition than prejudice then go ahead and call it whatever you want, I don't know any other definition.

Even if you were not consciously behaving in a sexist fashion (which seems likely), sexism clearly colored your aforementioned two responses to me. It is perfectly possible to treat people differently based on gender without realizing it.

Whether you are willing to acknowledge it or not, you disregarded my questions and instead posted rude things... that you would not have if I were a man. Claim the opposite all you want. Based on the arguments from today and on many comments you've made in IRC in the past, I can no longer believe that you lack sexist attitudes.
