It’s not “complaining” it’s advocacy.

>”…where is this uninhabited island where 3 billion people could occupy?”

You could colonize Mars.

I doubt that all three billion women are compla… whoops, excuse me — advocating — so you would have to get by with a smaller number of colonists.

>”…so that it is no longer offensive…”

It is your prerogative to be as offensive as you wish. I don’t ordinarily advocate when someone is being offensive.

>”…that means taking a ridiculous point of view…”

Thank you for chicksplaining that concept.

>”I can see how me expecting men…”

I recognize no obligation to conform to Feminists’ expectations.

>”…we should kill “boys”…”

I don’t think boys will go quietly to the gas chambers.

I have not actually advocated that anyone should leave (I haven’t complained about it either). One commenter was complaining -sorry, I mean “advocating” — about what, I don’t remember.
 
A second commenter wrote, “If you don’t like it why don’t you leave?” (or something close to that).

The first commenter replied, (as accurately as I remember) “Why should we leave, why don’t you leave.”

At that moment it occurred to me that the advocator is dissatisfied and the advocant is satisfied. Therefore, as I indicated in the subsequent comment, the advocator has a greater incentive to act than the advocant, and there is a higher probability that she will do so.

I have no more advocacies to express at this time.

As far as I am concerned you are welcome to remain on any continent on this planet, you won’t hear me advocating about it. But if you do colonize Mars, may I come and visit? I’ve never been to Mars. If you say no, I’ll whine and advocate until you let me.
