I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that people do hold doors for you. Maybe you make a special point of holding doors open for women and expect a special prize. Fuck off.

Statistics about being rescued are more compelling if you don't make them up.

Misandric dating culture? Really? I keep reading that as "But I'm ENTITLED to have sex!" I thought Eliot Rodger had done the world a favour by offing himself a few months ago; I hadn't realised that he had a fanclub. There is no misandric dating culture. There is a culture in which boorish guys think that it's perfectly OK to act atrociously towards women. Women not liking that, and deciding that they're going to tell you as much, is not misandry. It really isn't.

What feminist crowd do you have in mind, in particular? I mean, I hate to point out that you've made it obvious that you're really not thought about this in any way at all - let alone engaged with any serious feminist thought or debate... but you have made it obvious.

This is a link post All this talk of Scotishlands indendence and the tartan waveing reminded me of this
There was widespread concern about procedure and etiquette, not least amongst the touchy Highland chiefs (notably Glengarry), which Scott met by producing a shilling booklet "HINTS addressed to the INHABITANTS OF EDINBURGH AND OTHERS in prospect of HIS MAJESTY'S VISIT by an old citizen" which gave an outline of planned events with detailed advice on behaviour and clothing. All gentlemen of the city were expected to attend public appearances in a uniform blue coat, white waistcoat and white or nankeen (yellowish) cotton trousers, and a low-crowned dark hat decorated with a cockade in the form a white St. Andrew's saltire on a blue background. Similarly detailed guidance was given for those fortunate enough to attend functions or levees, with gentlemen to wear a full dress suit, as well as a description of the dress of the Highland chiefs and their "tail" of followers who were expected to "add greatly to the variety, gracefulness and appropriate splendour of the scene".

The exception was the "Grand Ball" held by the peers of Scotland to entertain the king: Scott's "Hints" called this a "Highland Ball", reminded readers that the king had ordered a kilt and set the condition that, unless in uniform, "no Gentleman is to be allowed to appear in any thing but the ancient Highland costume". At this, lowland gentlemen suddenly embarked on a desperate search for Highland ancestry (however remote) and a suitable tartan kilt from the Edinburgh tailors, who responded inventively. This can be seen as the pivotal event when what had been thought of as the primitive dress of mountain thieves became the national dress of the whole of Scotland.

The catering contract was won by Ebenezer Scroggie, who would become the posthumous inspiration for Charles Dickens' character Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.[2]


if it wasnt for the King then Scotishland might not have embraced the tartan in the way that they have and maybe they would have turned to wrapping them selfs in old irn bru lables

This is a normal post Those with a Scottish passport/nationality should get a vote
but it should not be for those who have fully emigrated.
There shouldn't be a 'I was born in Scotland' argument, else you get into the territory of ethno nationalism and a biological/racial determinant of political authority. And it leads to the premise: immigrants (and even third generation immigrants) from Pakistan should never get to vote in the UK.
Although, saying this, EU citizens are allowed to vote in the Welsh and Scottish Parliaments, and vote in local UK politics.
I don't know. Flip a coin.

This is a normal post Its a problem of political authority, which was described by Jacques Derrida as violent.
Modern states are based on nations, but who constitutes that nation is a big question. Yugoslavia broke up into ethno-religious violence because of this issue. The Scottish solution may be a fudge based on the EU's desire to downplay rabid racial nationalism.
Derrida points out the problem in the US declaration of independence. He says that the declaration talks of 'We the people of these United States', but until independence is declared then there are no people of a United States. Derrida describes it as a violent act.

This is a normal post The blood and soil argument may be scary but that's nationalism for you.

This is a normal post that's ethno nationalism, not civic nationalism
if you view a nation as primarily a political community that shares collective memories (even though the individuals and their ancestors may have had no part in those historical events (the actual descendants of 1066 and Waterloo are all dispersed over the globe)) then you can see how blood and soil has nothing to do with it.
Although its also argued that civic nationalism always descends into ethno nationalism.

This is a normal post Who can vote in the Scottish referendum?
Answer:
The list of those who are eligible to vote in the referendum is almost the same as for elections to the Scottish Parliament and local authorities, but with the addition of 16 and 17 year olds.

that seems pretty fair to me. If you're already allowed to vote for the Scottish parliament then you're allowed a vote here. If you've not "fully emigrated" then you can still register to vote in Scotland

The following groups of people can register to vote in the referendum:
British citizens resident in Scotland.
Qualifying Commonwealth citizens resident in Scotland. This means Commonwealth citizens who either have leave to remain in the UK or do not require such leave, and are resident in Scotland.
Citizens of the Republic of Ireland and other EU countries resident in Scotland.
Members of the House of Lords resident in Scotland.
Service/Crown personnel serving in the UK or overseas in the Armed Forces or with Her Majesty’s Government who are registered to vote in Scotland.

Those living outside Scotland shouldn't have a vote as its about the people living in Scotland, no matter their heritage.

This is a normal post I can't really see who's at fault there.
Instinctly feels disrespectful to the deceased...but then we have mummies on display in museums. Course, the difference there is that there's a couple o thousand years in the way to ensure no living relative would be distressed or offended...
But in this case, the living relatives requested the photo. So of they're OK with it...
