16. Well, I have tried to find where I posted

that you must agree with me, but I cannot. I am a firm believer in 'we can agree to disagree.' And, your post makes it obvious that you disagree with me.

I have done years of research on gender issues. I have done years of advocacy for survivors of relationship violence. I know from both personal and professional experience that the historically sexist 'woman as dog' meme is still prevalent, even here on DU.

Again, I grieve that so many women have grown inured to such derogatory messages--so much so that we become uncomfortable with the person who points out the sexism, rather than with the person who acts in a sexist manner.
