Oppose[edit]

  • I Oppose this sexist idea per my own comment on WikiProject Women.--AldNonymousBicara? 20:57, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
    • "Wikipedia needs a place where men can feel safer and not always overwhelmed by female advice, criticism, and explanations." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!1!!!!!one!!!! Oiyarbepsy (talk) 16:09, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Yeah, this is just offensive.--Gen. Quon (talk) 00:34, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
    • While I do oppose this idea, I do not think it is offensive. It would be difficult for you to avoid seeming hypocritical arguing that this is so when you are, I expect, supportive of its counterpart, WikiProject Women. -Shankarsivarajan (talk) 17:23, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
      • It's all about power dynamics; this suggestion was basically reaffirming the status quo, and thus making a mockery of feminism and by extension true equality. Hence, offensive.--Gen. Quon (talk) 15:03, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
  • I agree. totally belongs on unwikipedia of some farse website. This is supposed to be a comedy or parody, but I am afraid many will find it offensive. I am nominating it for deletion.--Frederika Eilers (talk) 20:01, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Sexism vs. "gender segregation"[edit]

Are sexism and "sex segregation" interchangeable? Sexism would imply that one gender assumes oneself to be more superior to another gender. "Sex segregation", however, segregates two sexes. Would "sex segregation" → sexism? Or sexism → "Sex segregation"? I'm befuddled. --George Ho (talk) 03:25, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
