In academia we would label the intent of your original statement hyperbole. :P

But meinterrupted turned it into 10 groups of 10.

So, techincally, it was HER random ass.


Don't confuse him with facts. He's looking for a gotcha win.

Good to have you back, McKegan.

Oh my God. This is hilarious. I respond to a post where you called me a "condescending ass" yet I resorted to trash talk. :lol:

Thanks for proving my point.

You're fun...for someone who stands up for the drunken douche.

EDIT: and I said 10 other groups. Are all groups of equal number in your world?


Then you agree your random ass number was no more or less random than anyone else's? Fair enough.

So did you look in the mirror yet?

I'm still waiting for my apology.

You never answered, are you male or female? Just curious.

It makes sense for a thread about misogyny to drift into talk about random asses.

Difference is I wasn't using the number literally like you were. Your response was to take a possible 100 people and make it into a win. The number isn't important because she pulled it out of her ass. It's what the number represents.

Wait...so what does the number represent?

And I'm still failing to see how one set of hypothetical numbers is any more or less random than another set of hypothetical numbers.

Male, father of three. It seemed like such an irrelevant point that it didn't need a reply, but your burning curiosity must be sated, I suppose. It doesn't make you any more or less of a...ah, forget it. Just knowing you're out there is enough to remind me to lock my doors. So cheers!

I would argue that there's at least a little bit of misandry, too.

Unless it's okay to say that a guy is "mansplaining" something when discussing something with a woman.

Comments like "Now, maybe my math is bad--I'm just a dumb girl, after all, everyone knows numbers are hard for us" probably aren't meant for a healthy exchange of ideas.

Especially in a discussion about someone's sexist behaviors.

Sexism, on either side, isn't needed here.

Let me break it down.

If you had to swear an oath in court that you thought I meant that 100 less people buying Brian Wood's books would end his career, would you really say you did? If my intent wasn't clear, that's understandable, but I'm not an idiot. I don't think 100 less people can kill X-Men.

But the intent is still the same. What if more groups do what she said? Fine, not 10. 500. 1000. Nothing in my argument changes because of the number chosen.

Do you see the difference?

And those 10 groups don't have to be 10 groups of 10. It could be 10 retailers. 10 advertisers. Whatever. I don't know where 100 people even came from.

Shhh...don't try to make sense of it. You'll get the infamous fanboy shout down. Being one myself, I can recognize it instantly...

Condescending post #10? 11? I lost count.

But of course, you will not recognize it. Especially since I answered him.
