It's unfortunate that the real issues women face are detracted from by those people and that people will focus on that in lieu of the real issues women face.

Kind of like if I assumed everyone right-wing was represented by Neo-Nazis who go around the streets with torches chanting "blood and soil" and was to ignore their points on that basis.

Hi, Higgs.

I have noticed that seeking to identify as "oppressed" seems to be a growth industry these days, whether it's a woman "identifying" as black out on the West Coast even though she's as white as Marie Antoinette, or angry white people claiming they are Irish and that Irish were brought to this country as chattel slaves, just like the black people they find annoying. My conclusion is that we have somehow bred a nation of drama queens looking to claim singularity and uniqueness by joining the ranks of the oppressed. Other than that I have no explanation, other than no matter what the discussions, sooner or later someone claiming to be a victim will attempt to hijack it, other than in here where, of course, we are all already stigmatized by being INTP and that's sufficient to scratch that itch. :-)
Tribalism that is lost when you're part of a majority?

It should be:

existence and things that don't exist and also other of the sort are being or not being if they choose as much or are forced into either of the above through a circumstance that is neither good or bad unless it wants to be, are yes no maybe so and what is missing from what I said, or didn't say, or was said by others existing or not.
