I posted this on your other talk page (the ip address one) before I realised this was the talk page of your actual account:

Please revise your essay on the patriarchy in Gender Studies. There are no sources; patriarchy in your essay is poorly defined; much of it is blatantly spurious—e.g., [patriarchy] is predicated on the idealization of the sperm—; and the hyperbole is quite offensive. If you want to find a way to constructively contribute, please contribute verifiable, well set-out ideas. I will leave your contributions for a while, so you or someone else can rewrite it as necessary, but if it is essentially unchanged, I will remove it. Rintrah 06:39, 14 November 2006 (UTC)


I usually restrict myself to matters of content and don't often venture into the personal realm, but I could not help noticing what you wrote about me in your blog. I must say, I am amused. You characterise me as "Y", and presumably, you insinuate I am nothing more than my sex; thus, you probably do not think the principle of charity applies to me. But if your blog becomes famous, I am one your characters—albeit, a minor one!

If you want to work this out constructively, I am happy to participate. If you want to snipe and make sarcastic comments, that is fine too. Rintrah 07:48, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I misread your comment, so the above is inappropriate. Rintrah 08:21, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Actually, Y don't know what sex you are, Rintrah. Lesbesquet 23:23, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

You could probably guess it. I will give you a clue: my two sex chromosomes are not the same. I was going to delete my above comment, but comments on other people's talk pages are not meant to be deleted, so I crossed it out instead. Rintrah 11:00, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

You wanted to be 'in the know'. Here are some useful links I have put together:
