Travel Forums General Talk Don't be a beggar gal

Hey guys? Hi guys!??
To those women and girls who say they don't mind being called guys, or that they themselves call everybody guys by default, forfeiting your gender identity in order to assimilate into a dominant group is making a beggar out of you, but does nothing to close gender pay gaps, remove rape cultures...
Respect yourself and other women more than that.

Mindlessly copy/pasting the same message again and again, targetting transient visitors to this website who'll most likely never see your message, while being a major disturbance on this forum for those regulars who do see all of your messages, also doesn't do anything to close gender pay gaps or remove rape cultures... Worse, in the mind of the regular visitors to this forum, you're starting to equate calling out those underlying issues to trollish behaviour, actively harming the understanding feminism relies on to fight the systematic issues still inherent in the system.

Why didn't you start out with a good faith assumption on behalf of the people on this forum who actually have the power to change the dialogue here? This is not how you create allies!

Ditto to what Sander said, and really, haven't you got anything better to do with your time?

Double ditto. Quite frankly you present yourself as an irrational, shrill nutbar trying to beat one political agenda to death. The constant cut & pasting of the same rant with zero discussion or follow-up renders your posts meaningless.

And why in the world are you posting on a travel forum?!

Cheers,
Terry

I suspect it is an old member who probably had a run in with the mods at some point.

I'll let this particular thread stand. Maybe Traveller Gal would care to actually engage in conversation for once? Somehow I doubt it though.
