    If you replace "gender" with "people" then I would support it. the current wording gives off heavy man-hater vibes which are never helpful for curbing sexism, just adds to it. Generalisations are stupid in cases like this, even if there is a trend you cannot address the group as a whole nor can you apply it on an individual basis.

    Isn't this always the case though? Isn't backward thinking always fought with backward thinking? Racism always fought Racism? Fascism fought with accepting what you're fed: Here is an example: Is totalitarianism really fought with freedom? No. It is fought with telling kids :"it's bad don't question"

    That's not a sexist statement, it's a pretty accurate criticism. The whole "equality feels like oppression when you're accustomed to privilege" thing makes you feel some kind of way about it, but really you're just being, dare I say, a bitch.

    The best part is where he calls a screencap from “Pulp Fiction” “a random picture from the internet”.

    Is there a /r/wooshwoosh ?

Told a redditor that they were giving bad medical advice and cited 2 sources explaining why. This was their response.

    Definitely seems like someone that should be giving medical advice.

    Does anyone have some medical advice for the headache I've got from reading this unhinged gibberish?

    These reactions are becoming more and more common recently, and it's getting seriously frustrating!

    Two recent experiences that mirror your own...

    1) Talking about the zipper merge and how literally any agency that has studied the issue of two lanes merging into one, typically in a construction zone, has said zipper merging is faster and more efficient. I get the exact same reaction as you did, but with people telling me I'm just a jerk face for not trying to merge 3 miles early like everyone else who has jumped over into a single lane, leaving another lane open and unused. Multiple links to the sources, but they'll have none of it.

    2) Looking into a recent post claiming a court upheld someone's first amendment rights when they were fired from their local government job for something they wrote. The OP posted the article they were citing as well as the 50 page court decision from the case. The defendant actually lost 4 of the 6 claims against their former employer, all of which had to do with first amendment rights. The court upheld the fact that the defendant couldn't do/say anything they wanted while acting in an official capacity and then claim 1st amendment rights. They only awarded the defendant damages based on a poorly worded policy about employees of the local government engaging in outside employment; the court said it was not an effective policy and thus unfair to the defendant.
