"I want to be treated as a person, not as a woman or a man.”

Post 161190 by Kitteh deleted for the following reason: Hey, sorry, but this seems like yet another sort of looky-loo Trans! clickbait article that doesn't really offer much depth on the topic. Maybe as a part of something that takes a wider look at gender diversity it might work better. Or if the main topic is supposed to be Jack Munroe, again something more fleshed out could work. -- taz

Shots fired at Munich shopping centre

Post 161134 by Pendragon deleted for the following reason: Generally a better idea to not jump on this stuff as soon as possible; a shooting's terrible but "a shooting happened" isn't in itself a very good MetaFilter post, even if they have happened sometimes. -- cortex

The most terribly responsible job any man ever had.

Post 161129 by everybody had matching towels deleted for the following reason: Oof, timing. I appreciate you put some work into assembling this, ehmt, but we've had pretty breakneck US election posting the last several days, and if there's a Clinton VP announcement today I'm okay with a post at that point and focused on that, but I'd really rather we not kick a speculative discussion off early just for the sake of getting going sooner. -- cortex

Post 161145 by marienbad deleted for the following reason: I'm still in the same place as I was earlier: terrible thing but not necessarily something that makes sense to have a post about. However, for folks in our connected to the Munich area, there is a check-in thread on MetaTalk. -- cortex

Shooting in Munich Shopping Center leaves 6 dead

Post 161142 by Glow Bucket deleted for the following reason: Heya, see previous; I feel like it might be better to think about a post about this later when and if it's clear there something more to post about than just the (definitely awful) fact that someone has killed a bunch of people. -- cortex

White Culture

Post 161075 by aniola deleted for the following reason: Heya, it seems like there's some pretty interesting stuff behind this but I feel like with the really stripped-down pamphlet lead-in and not much context in the post this is gonna make for at best a kind of a rocky, disjointed thread on a somewhat challenging set of topics. Maybe reframe it around a more substantial above-the-fold look at the subject and give it another go? -- cortex

Martha Nussbaum, The Philosopher of Feelings

Post 161057 by cgc373 deleted for the following reason: Hey, this is fine to post, but the pull quote is not at all representative of the overall focus of the article (which is, briefly, much more about aging, and intertwining concepts) -- and for those who won't read this very long piece, will lead to this one sort of dramatically phrased single idea being argued.
