In what concerns me, I replied to a rather simplistic statement of InWales, statement which she explained and nuanced in what followed. No one realized (or indeed appreciated) that this has in the end followed my own reasoning.
No, not exactly. I was trying to demonstrate, by peeling back layer after layer that your view of our hideous left wing rhetoric was ill informed or at least your perception of what it all amounts to wasn't accurate. I didn't change my discourse until it agreed with you, I tried to show you that the statements you were making about my view on equalities weren't accurate.
There are still plenty of things we've not reached any agreement on - in my view mainly your belief that there are not socially constructed gender stereotypes and therefore no such thing is influencing the choices people make with their lives. You also still don't seem to take on board that I have never once suggested that people should be made to do things they don't want to do.
I want to break down the stereotypes that cause institutional and structural discrimination in society - which does exist. I believe that legislation is an important part of that, and education alone doesn't work - I speak form experience there.
Besides, we don't even agree on what we should be educating people about because the gender stereotypes that I think are socially constructed and need tackling, you think amounts to 'old wisdom'.
