I realize this is a very charged topic for you, but this makes for a poor juxtaposition.

I still don't see where that has been done, at least on this thread, without the absolute worst bad-faith reading of one of Alston's posts. I'm not sure about the other accusations, though.

Just squeezing in before thread lock here to say that while I initially disagreed with some of Dees' and Alston's assertions, the counterarguments leveled here are obnoxious enough for me to change sides. I can't pinpoint exactly where this thread turned into us vs. them but yes this has regrettably become dichotomous. let's all be adults here, unkempt or not

Probably time to take a break from this thread for a while, everyone. We've had a contentious but fairly valuable time, so please try to keep in mind some of the more useful conclusions:

-personal grooming is good, both as a courtesy to those around you and for your own sake
-women are not a monolithic entity
-anyone, even Chris Ray Wang Anshi, can learn and grow through open discussion

Thanks!
