    https://www.vice.com/en/article/akdm4a/female-dating-strategy-relationship-advice

    Female Dating Strategy looks like your standard self-help site, but critics say its philosophy is nothing more than toxic misandry.
    (also the subreddit is full of TERFS) The writer had to close her twitter account after lots of threats from them.

    Tried to get back into dating last year and even in the UK you see FDS lunacy over here in profiles.

    I'm subbed to FDS. And yes, it's a toxic place full of misandry. For example, casually referring to all men as "scrotes". And that's just for starters.

    I understand their frustration, to some extent. Maybe I'd empathise more if I had ever dated men. (We are, on the whole, as a gender, badly socialised and emotionally stunted.)

    The sub was borne out of valid concerns, and its members do occasionally offer decent advice. But mostly it's a bleak wasteland populated by people who've resigned themselves to sadness and spite.

    @sirtacos

    they are no better than male incel types but they views seem to be accepted, even getting promoted on reddit and other sites iirc Salon

    from what I've read when I first heard about it, its nothing but bitter women teaching others to be bitter

    French MPs have voted to back a new law that would set the age of consent at 15 and prohibit sex with relatives aged under 18.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-56413881

    So currently it's legal?!

    So daft. Protest by all means, but as soon as it turns violent, you've undermines your whole argument.

    Especially as this one is about putting restrictions on protesting and giving police more power to deal with them.

    Fallout from yesterday https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-56461796

    and as expected;
    Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees said the violence had made people already dealing with inequality in the city less safe and questioned whether the perpetrators were from Bristol or were "protest tourists".

    He said: "Smashing buildings in our city centre, vandalising vehicles, attacking our police will do nothing to lessen the likelihood of the bill going through.

    "On the contrary, the lawlessness on show will be used as evidence and promote the need for the bill.

    I don't want to be that person but okay I will be: idiots doing an idiotic thing for other idiots to view are surprised when it becomes a clusterfuck.

    Hey, the article describes him as "Quick-thinking AJ". Not sure I'd have used that phrasing.
