2. Why do some people still think iit's okay for women to die?
Edited on Sat Jul-13-13 02:56 AM by No Elephants
Just not, you know, their own wives and daughters.

Women and people of color. For as long as there have been white people, woman and people of color have been worth less than.

Doesn't stop some white women from treating people of color as "less than" nor does it stop men of color from treating white women or women of color as "less than."

Doesn't even stop men and women of color from looking down on other men and women of color.

Doesn't stop women from looking down on other women, or at least assuming that men are more competent.

Somewhere in the distant past of our species, all that must have served some vital purpose. But, now that it does no good at all, and does do a lot of harm, we still seem to be stuck with it.

I hope the species finds a way to ditch all that stuff some day, but I don't expect it in my lifetime.
