@laura__palmer we already have those laws. They don't seem to have any impact on the men who need to understand them most.
@fightofyourlife where did I say I'd not heard of Christians who don't believe what the Bible says?
@laura__palmer I think it is a little inconsistent to argue for the abolition of categories in certain instances and the maintenance of them in others.
@cat I didn't know Jodie Foster was a producer! Not that that's surprising as I doubt I could name more than five producers full stop. Hollywood movies are not my favourite, so I probably see more representation than your average movie goer, but Wikipedia has a very very long list of gay/ lesbian/ bi/ trans producers. No idea how successful they are but they all have their own Wikipedia pages.
@laura__palmer how does consent help someone not be raped?
It's controversial for a Christian to believe the bible's teaching on marriage and homosexuality? Gee! I've gotta get out more!
Why would an actor *want* to be pigeon-holed into a part based exclusively on who they are? Sounds like the career kiss of death to me. All the rubbishy actors are just playing themselves rather than acting and it's so very dreary to watch.
@beachgirl because having naked photos circulate the universe isn't amazing and inspiring to everyone?
@stacey.hamade it may be a very good way to explain or describe consent, but it relies on people actually doing the right thing. Consent/ lack of consent is no defence against someone determined to rape you. It is more flimsy than a piece of paper.
@anonymous if anything, this shows that education is not the answer. The parents have done that bit. The mates have understood. Education has to be backed up by actually doing the right things.
@random dude decent men will always be appalled, and probably disbelieving of the extent of such attitudes because they don't hold them themselves and quite probably don't hang around with men who do. So they're in a decent man bubble. Which is nice in its way.
@cat Not sure it's most men. But essentially I don't disagree with you. Plenty of men are too willing to not only accept violence against women, but glorify it as fantasy and entertainment.
@mamamia-user-482898552 mine was too! I thought maybe because we cast aspersions on porn being a good thing?
@cat not just "as a human"? ;)
Welcome to the generation of teens who learn much of what they know about sex from porn.
@cat no, not really. I'm not into double standards. Cast your mind back to when a certain sportsperson mentioned who was going to hell. I personally thought it was an unhelpful, simplistic and overly divisive way to frame a comment on an issue that raises such strong feelings. Same again here. Just because I agree with what one says and not the other I don't think it excuses the divisiveness it fuels. Which is what Madeleine Albright said when she retracted her comment about women not voting for Hilary.
@anonymous so all conservative women are going to hell? And it's fine for other women to not support conservative women, (no hell punishment from Madeleine Albright on that account)?
@anonymous which women must we support to avoid hell? Only the democrats? Labor party? Greens voters? Doesn't even saying that tear down women?
