Orenholt, you wrote earlier in this thread that you felt the main issue with the women appearing in the video was that, "if they're going to support a music video with sexist lyrics they should be held accountable for their equally sexist actions of supporting it". I don't see how they could be held...

Orenholt, The "holier than thou" sense that women take on exposes the competing relationship between women. They're always sizing each other up to make sure they're not out of touch with the latest trends. The video with the young nude women has become a big hit. I'd say that's because a lot of youn...

Weininger's quote: The "intelligible I" is, however, only vanity, i.e., linking worth to the person, positing the real as not real; it is actually identical with the problem of time: because the temporal is vain.

Re: feminists are more hypocritical than I thought.

Why? Why should the women in the video be held accountable for what boils down to 'fashion'? The two - women and fashion - are synonymous, making their actions in the video as natural as anything else women do.

Re: feminists are more hypocritical than I thought.

It's the men in the video that are being transparently naked – as the video shows just how unimaginative they are. Look at how overdressed and cutesy those women are. They’re just ordinary looking women, ones you see in the mall, on the beach and in clubs. True, women don't always have their boobs h...

Do you think it might have something to do with say, the ability to focus on uncovering the truth.

Can you give me the percentage of women you consider to be conscious of the truth of causality? What about men?

Can you also give the percentage of women you consider to be conscious of Woman (as David writes of it in Expo)? And then the percentage of men?
