You are late to this party, and that is OK, there is no expectation that you would know such things but it doest make sense for you to use that as a point when you have no clue. Devildog is also a (much better educated that I), physicist who is very well vetted for his graduate work on the LHC at CERN which earned him his PhD from a very prestigious school.
Listen, I am going to try another approach because you are not getting it. No picking or being a prick...just listen because you have missed it. It isnt everyone else, it is you.
Devildog brought up rape. Real rape. He brought it up as hyperbole in the form of a parable.
You used that as a segway to go off on a tangent about womens rape fantasies.
The two are unrelated. You have not been called out because of any flaw in your point(that is another topic). You have been called out because making your point in this thread makes no sense. I.E. "your point is stupid...."
You have not been able to understand this. No one changed or backtracked. Your thoughts and *facts* are not being challenged.
Go back and read it. You did not only fail to understand everyone elses point....but everytime it was explained to you, you started fighting the wrong fight.
You have a chance here to hit the reset button and see where you went off the tracks. Please do so.
Thank you for clarifying, as I wasn't aware of your prior profession, etc. As you may know, many folks choose (under the guise of anonymity) assume a role larger than the real life they exist in.
I would continue to maintain that Devildog made an absurd analogy. You may call it hyperbole as it relates to a parable, but I'd say that it had nothing to do with slavery or the topic at hand. Yet somehow that was dismissed.
I then led with that to point out the hypocrisy of women having rape fantasies in a trusting relationship
(which ironically many who have commented on this forget to mention this distinction and apparently never read the articles I linked that show 'rape fantasies' are a common fantasy among women (the third most common fantasy)).
It seems that instead of discussing the issue that was first brought up and further evidence supported by, we're down in the weeds of attacking one's perspective of what WE
think it should be (that includes myself too).
You say my comment on rape fantasies is wrong, yet I support it with multiple pages of evidence to show it exists with women. Yet you have no problem with Devildog posting a comment that had little to do with the subject at hand and caused the discussion to go off course.
No need to respond. Probably stupid to have posted this on GT anyway.
