I am guilty to stir the forum and  make it more "interesting" for everyone, not only philosophy lovers. I took position in defending men who are expressing desire for a woman in a bad manners and immediately some people call them rapists, a story included a famous skeptic Shermer. But some "politically correct" did not like my position and one person attacked feminists in a very ugly way. It was in defence of me who can discuss necessity of the feminist's movement today in America or Europe. His idea was OK  for me but his form was absolutely unacceptable.
We can continue to discuss necessity of "ethnos, gender, language, age, cult or whatever" movements by stopping generalization for all women or men. 
In this area the current secular movement has very nice propositions and solutions by using reason and common sense.

"Today's incredibly sexist, misogynistic argument about women and sex"
If so why you do not start express your position but using something else not only adjectives? Why Rob and Dan tried defend you but you are silent and your reaction is leaving the group?  When you will say something more you will find that secular people are the best you can meet today. I am not sexist or misogynistic but have very different view about men women relationship and ready to defend it in proper and civilized manners.  I love my women (grandmother, mother, sisters, daughters, wives , etc.) who are always are and were good for me. I am against any discrimination and oppression of humans and extra women who are often (in the World history and today) treated  very badly.

As soon as I can figure out how to, I will be unsubscribing from this list.  Already I rarely read it because of the endless philosophical discussions and arguments, which are not what I expected when I signed up.  Today's incredibly sexist, misogynistic argument about women and sex had only male participants, had only an initial and tangential connection to the topic of the list (atheism and secular humanism), and should have been taken off-list as soon as the moderator mentioned that the poster's comments were potentially grounds for banishment from the list.

I am greatly disappointed.
