Women in the west are treated equally and have equal rights.
That's really an interesting perspective. I have never seen any large scale movement to deny men coverage to viagra or to have reproductive service coverage curtailed because they might seek condoms. I even missed the studies that demonstrate that men are not paid equally for their work. On more subtle notes (wicked subtle) I have never seen women violently defend a rapist's lack of judicial accountability because it would negatively affect his swimming career. I will have to have a look for those.
Men are abused as well, and raped and have wives who hit them.
Of course they do. I wish there was more information as to the degree. It is a crying shame that men are still stigmatized ... interesting by the same people who use terms like pvssified and the like to describe the appropriate behavior of men.
It remains beyond naive to think that the desire to subjugate women was magically erased with the passage of the voting rights act. I mean, sure, all is well if you cede to your father/brothers/husband and do the "right thing" like make 'em a sammich.
Its not a women only thing. I personally know 5 young men who were sexually abused as children.
Of course it is not a women only thing. I was gratified with my last donation to Women Helping Battered Women locally that they renamed themselves to be gender neutral. I do wish that the march name was not specific to women. But I saw as many signs regarding Black Lives Matter, the right to religious freedom, LGBT rights and on at the marches to understand that the majority get this.
Be careful who you go out with and marry is my advise.
Right. Toe the line. Good advice.
The marches were a waste of time, and their only purpose was to hate their new president who was democratically elected.
Well I cannot say that I hate him. He certainly is a disgusting example of a human being. But hate is bad for the hater. I will never understand this call to support him by these so called patriots. Do they not understand that patriotic progress has always and will always be at the hands of people who are willing to act for the right that the founding fathers set out to bestow on us? Aside from the fact that Obama received no such support, unless you consider klan style effigy burning support, why is peaceful marching hateful?
Some of the speeches were lewd, disgusting, dangerous and didnt in anyway represent most normal women.
I did not hear Madonna's speech, which you mentioned directly. But I don't have a big problem with lewdness. Motivation to action comes in many forms. My delicate female sensitivities don't get all that upset by such things. I am not sure what you think a "normal" woman is. One who likes being beholden to their masters as long as they (or their father) chooses their master well?
