What this forum needs is a bit more feminist propaganda.

16. Do not use someone else’s thread for a private conversation.

 

Or would, if this were someone else's thread.

Erm, I am using my own thread for a public conversation.

So no major netiquette contravention there, then.

Don't you have some Sad Puppies tm to go hang out with instead?

It's funny you should say that.

No, it's really funny, in a thread initiated by someone painted as a rabid sexist by most of the hyperemotional feminazis in these forums, encouraging them to interrupt their texting examples of Everyday Sexism tm to a fellow alumni of mine and post some bitchma here instead.

{I presume Fat George is annoyed because his entire oeuvre of Dragons and Cleavage which has so captivated square-eyed teenagers has been perennially, and justifiably, ignored by connoisseurs of the SF genre.)

Of course.

As long as it provokes discussion, and my disagreeing with the opinions of others does not generate misguided accusations of flaming.

I think the term nowadays is "clickbait."  In this case, targetted.

How fortunate for you that a "feminazi" happened to be just strolling by!

Why is being a feminist a pejorative term? Do you believe that women should get equal pay for equal work? Do you believe women should be able to enter any profession they wish to? If you answered yes, you're a feminist.

I am afraid that, as with most things at which I succeed, good fortune had little to do with it.

Do you mean pejorative?

If the work can be successfully measured, sure.


Bobbie Faulds wrote:

I believe that ending sentences with prepositions sounds very clumsy.

Of course I am a feminist. I believe that women have their place in society.

As one who has managed staff and negotiated salaries for them and myself, this is a very tough issue indeed.  If the work output is easily quantifiable then it is simplier to argue 'equal'. If not, it is not.  Since I have managed more people whose work is not easily quantifiable, then subjective measures are also important.  This is why I also request feedback from their customers (mostly internal).  I argue salary issues based upon the efforts of the individual, not their gender.

Just exactly where should that period be placed?  I say' within' the parenthesis.  Correct me if I'm wrong and tell my why.

I placed it outside because it is at the end of the sentence.  Their customers are mostly internal to the company.  If I placed the period inside the parens, I would need another outside the parens to end the sentence.  Why do you suggest it be inside the parens?

English writers would almost certainly put it outside the parenthesis.

Americans might put it inside, as they do with punctuation relating to speech, but personally I find that clumsy.

Ideally, as with most issues where there seems ambiguity of treatment, you would write so that you didn't need to make a decision. I find myself reformatting sentences quite a lot when, on second look, they appear inelegant.

For example, the sentence Venus wrote could be rewritten:

This is why I also request feedback from their (mostly internal) customers.

Or if you didn't like parentheses this would be OK, although it appears a little disjointed:

This is why I also request feedback from their, mostly internal, customers.

And it flows better when the qualification is in a separate clause:

This is why I also request feedback from their customers, who are mostly internal.

Now my ignorance is on display, but I learned.  As you already know, I don't write as well as you.  I was taught to place the period inside when it ends the sentence.  Go figure.  I tried to tell those nuns they were beating the grammar out of me . . .
