Quote:
"It’s aesthetically very masculine in its design." To fix this, feminists at colleges around the country are launching another ‘Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon.’ Next week, feminists are encouraged to change rewrite the online encyclopedia to make it less masculine, according to Campus Reform.


I can't remember who stated it but... Men when facing a man that is better than themselves may aspire to equal or better it, feminist want to redefine what "it" is to equal them

By Odin, the comment thread of TFA is horrible.

Anyway, I'd be much more interested in *how* the site design is "masculine". The new layout proposals are bound to be quite interesting...

That's bullshit.

When a monkey sees a higher evolved monkey, it attempts to align itself with it, in hope that some of it will rub off. If that is not possible, it seeks to kill or otherwise diminish the higher evolved monkey, in a vain attempt to elevate itself over the smoldering corpse of the higher evolved monkey.
That's how ego works, at least.

Superego observes and goes "hmm interesting", and tries to incorporate what it can, and evolve. However the culture we live in, is promoting the ego instead of superego. After all, they killed Socrates, didn't they?

I've just had to sit through a two hour mandatory company wide training on 'Sexual Harassment & ... (I don't remember the rest)', which was basically feminist BS like 'women can do no wrong'.

Wouldn't be a feminist cause without blaming white men.

the question is: who else than well educated men should write history? Uneducated white men? Uneducated women? Uneducated children?


btw, Germany's leading feminazi was just caught with tax fraud. And is no complaining that the evil media is reporting it. The same media she used to whip into a frenzy against everybody she did not like.

Oh feminism thy name is hypocrisy.

aaaactually she wasn't "caught", she told the coppers she did it to get away without punishment, then she donated 5 times as much money as she had on that undisclosed bank account to some charity to make up for it.

... much more interesting in that case is the reaction of the Traitor Party, who promptly suggested we need moar powaah for the tax bureau to catch people like her before they have a chance to use their get-out-of-jail-free card.

actually, she 'decided' to donate five time the taxes she had to pay - and only after the Spiegel broke the story.

So how much do you have to hide in a bank account to have a backpay of 200 000 €?

oh don't misinterpret that part as me trying to be apologetic of her, it was rather to demonstrate that she needs to have a lot more money stashed away somewhere, otherwise she wouldn't be donating a cool mil.

With Krautland tax rates? probably EUR 300k-350k, 400k if you have a good accountant. :lol::twisted:

Seriously though, the news I read on that indicated that she didn't withhold 200k in taxes, but rather that was the amount of money on the bank account she didn't tell people about. Still means she'd owe the state 100k per year she didn't point that out to the lot of them ofc.

Just do what Obama did -- he hired 75,000 more IRS agents to hunt down tax evaders and Obamacare refusers.

Would it be too masculine to call it "beardedClamBox"?

Actually, that will be far more than offset by the newly estimated 2,000.000 or so people who are going to quit the full-time job they were holding primarily to get health care, because of Obamacare (this was released by OMB today, according to NBC Nightly News tonight).

nope, 200 000 in taxes on the INTEREST RATE of the hidden money.

So she has a couple of millions parked in crime-country.

At the same time she had no problem playing the morality card over and over again.

Interesting. It does explain the donation...

Of course. Krautland tax rates are an amoral travesty to begin with. If they had reasonable tax rates and decent public service then people wouldn't be going out of their way to dodge taxes. Given the status quo I don't think tax evasion in Krautland is a moral issue at all. I'd go so far as to claim any sane Kraut should be doing it until they learn their lesson and institute reasonable tax rates and vastly simplify the tax code so you don't need brilliant accountants to do your income tax for ya no more.

if the tax dodgers like Alice S. would pay their share, the overall tax load would be lighter. If everybody pays, everybody pays less.

Apart from that: the maximum tax has been going down. But the low end is the one who are screwed more and more.

Incidentally a lot of these so called small incomes are earned by women. So Alice not only defrauded the tax payer in general but especially women.

Of course she is angry right now. I wish somebody would say it in her face: the people she hurt the most are small income, oppressed women.
