    What movie did you watch last night?

    Disappointed to hear this. I thought the trailer looked great.

    Actually @flashback - are you some sort of expert chess player? Could I send you a screenshot of the game so you can tell me what to do? It's my move next ....

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    I'm in the middle of a very tense game with my father-in-law which is due to resume at 8pm tonight. Hoping to (virtually) knock his kind to kingdom-come after which I will triumphantly rampage around my living room whooping. That's the done thing right?

    Sexism, god help us

    Terrible ideas seem to be easier to implement than good ones.

    I'm all for the matriarchy too. And I'm hoping that we can all at least agree on the fact that Renua are arseholes. I've got a haircut booked for Thursday afternoon. Excited. I even managed to get in there before the missus (and we go to the same hairdressers).

    It's so refreshing to read long considered pieces about things as opposed to hot takes on the Internet and click-bait journalism.

    Not that either. But thanks for pointing it out as I might give it a read. By the way - on a complete sidenote - the London Review Of Books is great. I took out a proper print subscription at the start of March lockdown and it was super-cheap (goes back to full price after six months or so but...

    No, that that either! Sorry I'm talking about what's probably an imaginary article now. Or it might as well be. Browser history no use as I changed computer recently etc etc.

    Cheers but no ... it’s not that one ... though I did come across that while looking for it. This is really annoying me because it’s one of those things I intended to bookmark so I could refer to it later etc.

    I'll just add though ... I totally agree about there being no reason "those two positions should be in conflict". We can assign the blame for this conflict anyway we like (and all parties to it as usual blame the other) but it seems to me that it is yet another unecessary culture war being...

    Was just typing a long reply and ditched it because @Lili Marlene just nailed it for me.

    I'd be surprised if you did (like Judith Butler that is) as she represents a very different take on feminism to the one that you are espousing. I think she articulates that position very clearly here (which is rare for Judith Butler!) so it's worth a read if people want to know more about this...

    Excellent summary from Diddles there. Also very informative is this interview with Judith Butler who is obviously coming at it from a different position. And also touches on quite a few other things that are exercising people on this thread...

    Thread for helping out local business, if you've a spare sheckle

    Sorry I was making a reference to the thing about the list of 400 online retailers .... like .... why would anyone need 400 online retailers? How many presents do you need? But good to actually know how many you guys are buying. I think I'll go for the median in between Anthony and Unicron...

    What Twitter pile on are you watching right now

    I think the term “radical feminism” means something quite different now than it did 20 years ... but either way it’s really a pejorative label isn’t it? In the “I’m all for feminism but not the radical kind do you know what I mean?” kind of way. Did you once sit down at a table with a bunch of...
