Karima Bennoune: When people of Muslim heritage challenge fundamentalism
"Kurdish people? Read some history and see how sassanids and byzantines thought about them as 'landless people of hills' 'the bandit herdsmen', drugs that is being smuggled into EU is smuggled into Turkey by Kurdish smugglers(in fact all smuggling is) the profits are used by terrorist organizations, these organizations were probably started with western financing before they got out of control(it is highly probable that they are still being controlled by a faction in U.S. though)And due to these organizations both Turkish and Kurdish people lost thousands of lives. Inside Turkey most organized crimes which contain violence is due to Kurdish Mafia. " ....Sorry, this is not about the main topic of this talk, but, would you mind elaborating on this? What is "history about Sassanids and Byzantines thinking of Kurds as 'the bandit herdsmen" referring to? is it me or did you just dismissed all Kurds, as bandits that have been bandits since Sassanids time? did you read your own closing remark?

Karima Bennoune: When people of Muslim heritage challenge fundamentalism
She is not American, and she is talking about "people of Muslim heritage" challenge fundamentalism, I am sure this is been something you have been thinking about, but it has nothing to do with this talk. Can we stop bringing Americans into every single thing anyone in this world is talking about for one single second please?

Ronny Edry: Israel and Iran: A love story?
The regime choose only 4 options for us when we went to voting booths, Rouhani was the least fundamentalist one, so we just choose bad over worse. Also nobody gets to vote over the supreme leader, which in Iran, has the final say over everything, check out the Functions and duties of the Supreme Leader section here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme_Leader_of_Iran We Iranians live here, and know who is who better than any outsider, don't be fooled by PressTV and what Iranian authorities tell you.

Philip Zimbardo: The demise of guys?
@Jason C: You obviously have problems with your gender identification and communicating with people from the other gender and had find a platform for your outlet, aka trolling. And you can't even afford to be a creative or funny troll at that. No, calling all women stupid is not going to get you to be classifiable into the more intelligent half of population. Try working on yourself instead, Educate yourself, don't be scared of logic and rational thinking. It won't hurt, I promise.

Philip Zimbardo: The demise of guys?
I know you are not being sarcastic, Islam,women,authoritative regime,*I know*. Yes, we do have a gender problems, with the government, But "not with people". In the "worst case" there are religious fanatics who think women are like pearls and should be inside their shells, They have figured out that many women are not the inside the shell staying type. Even them don't classifying human's genders by their reaction to football,danger and novelty. (that novelty part is really getting under my skin) I actually feel like hugging all the guys I see around me after I get to take a look into the minds of these guys here. Guess we as a nation are facing real problems and don't have time to make up such a pointless never ending arguments about gender wars with each other. 1st word concerns like "Why *they* talk about discrimination of women and make "me" feel left out?" *Really*? My 57 years old uncle was the one who introduced me to a women's rights campaign first, There were many guys there, mostly of my own age, and just as passionate about the case as girls were.We used to talk to people and gather their signatures(it was named 1milion signature campaign) and I can say for certain we were as well received by men as by women(if not better). I could go on and on. My point is here "the enemy" isn't the other gender. Dominating an area can be influenced by the government's approach, Ahmadinejad had outright declared he prefers for women to stay at home, and it's not just a declaration, as a result of his approach, doors are getting closed for women who want to work, one by one. We have already talked about women and education in Iran on TED: http://www.ted.com/conversations/3350/a_taste_of_iran.html?c=271534

Maybe that's how it is in your society, around here having a passion for football, danger, novelty, following rules, taking risks and etc has nothing to do with having a penis or vagina. I am thankful that I live here, putting up with all the gender rules that seems your society has set for people is diffidently not my cup of tea. Apparently I was wrong to think only Chines people think like that.

Well, Just like Western women, we aren't of one voice either. As a woman from "Middle-Eastern culture"(by the way Middle-Eastern is a part of Asia, so I don't get why you mentioned it twice?), I am glad that even thought our religion and laws are just plain against women, even thought we are pushed to be(from being separated from the other gender in preschools till university to sitting in separated bus seats) we aren't nowhere near "this" alienated from the other gender. I don't even know what does dominant role mean here. As in a relationship? In family? In work place? In political positions? What ever you may mean by that, Just refrain from talking on our behalf, You can always talk about what you think, But not about what people somewhere you haven't ever been think.

Hi Kestutis, By *true happiness* you mean "men not dropping out of school"? Which, may I remind you, is what this talk is about? Gisela was making a point that we are all humans, we are all allowed to be compassionate, strong, responsible, brave and advantageous and etc, regardless of our gender. I was following until the stuff about buying chocolate, behaving like a lady and all that came up to the conversation. In answer to her you just gave women advice to behave more like a lady if they want "true happiness"?
