333. My comments are stupid?


What point was he making? That a woman was not put down due to her gender but due to her actions? Hmmmmmm.

So why was she called so many ugly names that had absolutely nothing to do with her actions? And all of those names referred to a female who is less than the male standard:

The male standard being: Must be sexy and the perfect male fantasy vision of female beauty or she is worthless as a human being, must speak in low tones, must not have those nasty female body parts, must be a virgin (or she is DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY for even THINKING about sex becasue good girls never do), must not do anything out of the ordinary, must not curse, must not interrupt IMPORTANT men, must not leave the house if she has a family, must never be emotional, must always accept the fact that if she does, she will be called all of those ugly gender-oriented names.

What the hell did any of those evil name-callers think when they were calling her those names? That she could have used another strategy? There are gender-neutral names to express a dislike for someone's strategy.

No, these were names she was called because some perpetual adolescent males said, "Oh, lookie! A WOMAN. Where is my list of filthy names to call WOMEN? Don't I sound like a big man now!"

And if there were women who did the same, shame on them. They are enablers of the perpetual 12-year-old male mindset that is responsible for getting our nation in the mess it's in.

If you can't see it, you must be blind.
