Who said they should be gender exclusive? They clearly are, since

with literally millions of people of all genders in the work and government-place, you'd expect a rather random result, and yet, you have tiny numbers of women in both areas. Bizarrely, we task women with raising the children, and so many of these ideas come from maternal caregivers who are contributing to their own oppression, much like Uncle Toms of old.

Nothing random about it - the good old boys protect their own at all times and at all costs.

I don't believe in military conscription, nor war, nor a military. I don't believe in going around the world killing strangers for the benefit of the money machine, so no draft, no wars, and no military for me, please.

See what you did with the kindergarten teachers? I did. You must feel that male teachers are pedophiles and should not be around children of that age. Please don't say you didn't say that - you did, so now you will have to own it.

That blurt is just another confirmation of the anti-woman, pro-rape society we swim in. Ask a fish how he likes the rain. Won't know what you're talking about, because they're wet all the time. Same here.

No value.

We don't even process the rape kits. How's that for value?

We've had our first black President of the US, but no woman yet.

There are 81 women in the House of Representatives and 20 women in the Senate, or about 19%, even though women are 50%+ of the population.

Women in equivalent occupations make about 77% of the wages that men make in those same occupations, holding constant time on job, education, and other qualifications.

Women currently hold 4.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEO roles.

So no, we don't value women, and there were no happy darkies singing the praises of Ol' Massa before the Civil War, either, although it gave great comfort to the oppressors to think so. Still does.

Here's a starting point:

1. Process every rape kit already taken and being ignored by the millions and prosecute every one of the offenders, and register each convict as a sex offender for life.

2. Assign in-school punishment to every male student who walks down the hallways with his hands over a girl's breasts, his crotch pressed into her body, his arm firmly around her neck. This is a major problem in the large urban school I teach in, and I call out each and every offender between classes. Unfortunately, it's not considered a punishable offense, so I try to make it a teachable moment.

3. Teach women that unwelcome contact is rape, period, and teach them to take action - to loudly object at the moment, to file charges, to get help from bystanders, to in every way signal that this bad behavior will not be tolerated, and to get away from these offenders as soon as possible and permanently.

Now there's a start.

Doesn't mean it's not, does it?

Truth is, millions of rape kits of evidence are never processed, because the society we live in places no value on women. We might find the men who actually committed those rapes if we processed those kits, and good lord, some of them might be influential community members or people with money!

So, we give them a pass without even looking to see if a crime has been committed.

That is a rape culture, where rape is invisible and undiscussable. Yes, the one we live in.

Not at all familiar with the seizure of assets from US citizens of Japanese descent, are you?


Yes, we took it, stole it, sold it, redistributed it to white US citizens who had not taken such good care of their property, and if the Japanese-Americans complained, they were threatened with prison. Since they were already in concentration camps, that threat sounded credible to them.

And we most certainly never compensated Native Americans for everything we simply took at gunpoint from them, either.

So why so squeamish about seizing assets from corporations, who are not even flesh and blood, have no feelings, and suffer no physical nor mental privations?

THIS is what being an American is all about!


The price of gas inauguration week 2000 as Bush comes in: $1.269
The price of gas inauguration week 2008 as Bush goes out: $3.068

I had to find this link because of all the stupid Republicans who think gas was $1.50 when Obama took office, and now it's $3.259, when it started at $3.068 and is NOW, 6 years later, $3.292

Yes, now that food, energy and rent have been removed from the cost of living index, it seems the only things left are meth and huffing fluids. The argument for removing those other things? "Too volatile."
