Just want them to think 'otherwise' and be creative..thats it!

I am sure they will do amazing justice to topics when they sit down to write and present them to EC community for approval and disapproval.

I saw that you got several reps from members who are dead against pervertedness, self-obession n blahblahblah! Why do you want to cut your repp supply lines and invite their wrath everywhere you post on EC

moreover...yeh heads bhi mera tails bhi mera wala attitude chhodh de...trust me...heads bhi mera, tails bhi mera aur to aur ..coin bhi mera attitude works better

topic hmmm...."Do bharatiya men prefer firang flesh" should work for you but please read the warning again that i gave you at the starting of post

zyzzva , like a typical male ,has said that women are possesive, an idea that is laughable.

rakhiji , over the years I have seen women whose lives have been restricted , even ruined, by rules and regulations imposed by men who were chauvinistic and possessive and did not believe that a woman should have a life beyond being a appendage of a man .

sadly some women ,especially mothers in law , have joined in makiing this possible.

so you know now .

you are welcome to defend the men , if you want.

Re: New Topic proposals for sep-oct'09

bhailogo, it would be good if we can make some amendments here. I found that orgasm debate too long, I am not sure how many of you actually read it in full.

So it would be better if we set up some kind of word limit for the upcoming debates. Thats how debates are - if they are verbal. then you got to present your views within 3-4 minutes. In this case, we can set a word limit of 1500-2000 words.

Another thing is that more than half part of the previous topic was copy paste. In future, try to give it your own words. Referring to Wiki is OK, but copy pasting 2 pages of it, I don't think people like reading that long.

We are looking for our views here, so write what you feel. What you feel has nothing to do with whether its right or wrong, so don't be too bookish, that takes away the fun element.

ash...I know its between rakhiji and you to decide but why is it that you dont want to accept a topic that he been given to you. If you think you will get branded for what you write then you are very wrong. In debates at school/college level if you were given a topic and asked to pick out a chit which would then decide whether you will speak for or aginst the topic, would you say something like 'It doesn't agree with my belief system..I wont speak' types. Unless you are ready to try to learn or research about other sides of story, how you will ou develop sense of judgement? Just a thought..ask rakhiji..she was actually in support of my side of argument and vice-versa...but in personal correspondences we decided to be devils advocate and we tried our best to do justice

While researching for my article, I got hold of an article in psychologytoday.com article in which the author mentioned 4 types of feminists that even feminist find as threats. One of the type was when given a simple problem in (say) maths..say "john had 4 bananas and he ate two..how many left"...a negative-feminist will think it as a insult and change the name to mary..in english texts if they write 'mary had an accident"...she will convert it to "john" even in her test papers with an astreix above the change (superscript??) and note below that mary=john! It was an amazing article to read. Not anti-feminists at all but what clan doesn't fit into definition of feminism.

and right now you did the same thing. Ofcourse topics are not compulsory and in the end I even wrote that partners can exchange the viewpoint stuff but what you decided was to replace women with men!!!

anyways, to each his own. You have decided to take up this job and your topic and I appreciate it. All the best

do get some time and go through this NGO's site: http://www.saveindianfamily.org/

also do go through this article I was talking

about-the maths problem one-http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/homo-consumericus/200908/the-pros-and-cons-feminism

you may also read some articles by women on these topics(do visit the hyperlinked content as it will point you to other good resources)..ofcourse you can discard them if they dint convince you. I am neither forcing them down your throat nor I am saying i subscribe to viewpoint. Its just that I want you to 'try' to see other side also. Ofcourse if you have time and will

Even in original post (my topic) I said that submitting time is flexible I want people to enjoy writing articles and even invite people from outside to contribute on various topics. anyways letz see if you can come out with a good one if the idea of writing articles interests you

p.s- the copy/paste was research part which had to be copy/pasted as it is because no one would have gone to references to check same...so dont make an issue out of copy/paste.....)

spritebhai ,you know how emotional I get about the causes I believe in.

I find it difficult to argue from the other side , my heart is not in it.

I am afraid I will never become a good marketing professional.

As far as accepting the topic is concerned , let me first search some material on the net.

now what should be the counterpoint if I argue that men are overpossesive ?

should rakhi argue that men are not , or should she argue that no ,not men ,but women are overpossesive.

we will have to ask rakhi this .
