makeitso, loved your graphics!
this thread is the very reason I would fear a world "ran" by women!
1st of all, the mere belief that they feel the need to "take over" the world is something to be suspicious of. I personally am all for a world
jointly ran by men and women. Another thing is the problem I have with women and "minorities" all together (and I dont mean all of them) always
dwelling in a "woe is me" frame of mind. This country is not as discriminative as they believe. Granted there are areas where discrimination still
prevails, but everyone equally has experienced unfair and unequal treatment. You tell me areas that men make more money at jobs and Ill show you jobs
that men dont get. Areas where black people are discriminated against, and I will introduce you to Detroit. Further more, prove your case and change
the outcome, more and more laws and tolerances are made for equality and fairness for women and minorities all the time, follow the right channels and
you will undoubtedly win your case. I have never went to school with anyone that didnt have the same opportunities to learn that I did, I have never
had a job that anyone got paid differently for. When you go to your interview and they tell you what they will pay you, dont take the job if you
think it isnt fair. If you think it is fair, why do you concern yourself with what anyone else is making? Most of the time when people complain or
cry inequality, they are the person doing a job for less because they have less schooling, experience, or lack in comparison, than the person they
compare themself to. Granted there are exceptions, but as a general rule, things are fairer than the whiners want us to believe. I am tired of being
demonized for being a white man, when expections are higher of me in society because of attitudes like those of the so called oppressed! Now I had to
wait 10 years to get into where I work, while GM hired women and minorities the whole time! I dont have a white scholorship program, I dont get
maternity leave, or get to go home because I have cramps, I had to score higher on the skilled trades tests than women or minorities, because the
scoring scale is higher for white men than it is for women or minorities. I get wrote up when I dont do my job right because I cant use the
discrimination crutch to get out of trouble. I get tickets when I get pulled over, because I cant cry or bat my eyes to get out of it. I think you get
Truth be known, women, of all people, have the most power in the world simply because of their sex. Many more women in the world that sleep there
way to the top, than men-and once they get there they discriminate worse than they were discriminated against, because their lack of hormone balance
make them percieve their hardships as much worse than they were, and they act more emotionally than practically (as you will probably see from the
slamming remarks I am sure I will recieve from this post).
I once wrote a paper on how the "liberation" of women ruined our country. My teacher gave me a bad grade and said it was discriminative, so I
debated with her that it wasn't bigoted in any way, it was a simple observation. I ended up in the principles office where she told my teacher that
I was right, and made her try to read it objectively, without taking it personally. My teacher then told me she didn't like it, but found it to be
true, even if it didnt seem to be right. My mother hated my position on this topic too, and I couldnt get her to see it objectively. This is a prime
example of reacting emotionally, and thinking that I was cheauvanistic, when I merely made an observation and expressed it. Practically, my teacher
and mother should have been objective and not defensive. They would have seen the case that I presented, which was basically; that before "womens
lib" women predominantly played the role as homemaker and teacher/caregiver to the family. Men labored for the means to provide a living for the
family and the protection as well. Results were, morally sound children, less crime, and because only half the population worked, there were more
jobs, and the value of a good performing employee was usually rewarded with better pay, meaning that the man could more than provide for his family.
Both husband and wife took pride in their accomplishments, and life was much simpler. Children did better in school and eventually in life. People
aspired for more wholesome lives.
This was the life of the average family, and in countries where the mutual respect still existed, the same successes were shared.
Objectively, one would read this and see the truth in it, emotionally, one might take offense. Sorry, but I don't mask my feelings to save yours,
when it comes to my freedom of expression. Who knows, maybe I am just a deranged jerk! You can judge me all you want, and how you judge me will
determine how you are judged in turn by others.
