33. Why? It Was Completely Irrelevant.
I think you erred in thinking I was talking to you. I was actually addressing the OP directly, and asking for their contribution to the context. Since 'Post #6' was not written by the OP it is completely irrelevant to my questions.

I figure if someone is going to post such a heavy topic of discussion and declare it to be so important to discuss, the least they could do is actually provide some, or any, insight into their take on the subject or solutions to the problem. I think the questions I asked were fairly valid ones, though I have yet to see the OP address them anywhere in the thread.

The questions for the OP were:

Where do you stand on this issue? What are your proposals for solutions? What are these necessary steps? What are your own feelings in response to your OP?

I guess we'll have to see if they'll be answered or if the OP was just done for the sake of "Hey! Look at me! I'm talking about women's rights and the wrongs of men again! I haven't put forth anything new or given any solutions, ideas or explanations as to my view even though I'm claiming the discussion is really really important but give me a bunch of recommendations anyway!"
