The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

I like that. It's "Us versus our mutual lack of understanding". :)

Agree. This is aligned with the heforshe campaign launched by the UN, too.

Shame we've got posters here on these forums who simply won't get this.

Nice except for the pairing of the woman blamed for sexual harrassment for wearing something revealing and a man not getting blamed for not wearing protection. It should be noted if a man gets kicked or whatever one usual response it, "Why didn't you hit him back? Stand up for yourself." Victim blaming still happens with men, it's just a different type.

What wasn't mentioned either is that when a man gets sexually harassed or even raped by a woman he's not taken seriously. Many men would think, or at least say, "Lucky bastard" and make light of the situation and make out he's unmanly.

OP- :clap:

I find it depressing how often bright progressive males resort very easily to casual sexism and reiterate lazy stereotypical views of gender roles. Same sex pressures are common in both male and female circles and not talked about enough.

Yep, totally agree with that. I was watching Marco Polo this afternoon, and there's a scene where a woman's virginity is tested with a pigeon egg. I thought : "that's just a rape. Stupid, mysoginist aggressive custom."

As is often true with such things, there are some good points, but there is much overgeneralization.

In any way, "pussy" isn't gendered. "Pussy" is short for "pusillanimous," which hardly anybody can spell. "Sycophant," however, is. Words are strange.
