I totally agree with you.
There is a "wrong" factor with women today. They fight so hard for their rights, and all the sudden it seems that they are falling flat on their
I honestly believe in justice, but justice to me isn't "equal". Justice to me is when people belong where they DO belong. Not higher, not lower.
In 90% of the situations, a women should be on the same step as a men. And it should be also protected MORE than a men, in some cases (for example,
And I also do think that women should be raised a bit in some cases. Women have features in their brain that work differently from men, and they
should be praised by that.
Like George Carlin once said, "God IS a man. Just because there is no way a women would f*** up the world like this.".
They have the magic, "power" and capabilities of a mother. And that is a great thing.
BUT, having that said, and showed that I respect women, I do think that they need to tweak a thing or two.
First of all, like others have said, it's not about "I don't have nothing to do with what's on other peoples head". Well, yes you do.
You see, we are not completely different from animals, and our brains work (even that we aren't aware of it) in some primitive ways.
For example, in several subjects, you learn how to evaluate a target/threat just by looking into his body language (subliminar messages). There are
messages that show you that he is strong, or weak.
A study was made using different walking styles. You could only see a little CGI animated sticks with humanoid shape, walking around (no other clues,
like height or weight).
90% of the people choose the guy that walked with less confidence.
Putting that into the perspective of a rapist, there are a LOT of women who are (I'm sorry for using this cliché, but it's true) asking for it.
It's not about a bad choice after drinking too much. It's not about those times when a normal guy looses his head.
It's about predators, people that are out there on the street and are looking for certain profiles.
Are women to blame for their own rape? Absolutely not, a victim is a victim. Could they have avoid it, in MANY cases? YES! But still, they refuse to
act like that.
I think guys are a little nicer to womens who have been raped, just because every guy, at least once in his life, will think about a "what if" about
his girl/wife when she is going home alone, and you can't go with her.
That's why we feel sorry for these poor girls. Because (at least for me, and many of my friends) it saddens us how that could happen to the very
women that we love, and how we would face the pain (not shame. Pain for the suffering we are seeing in our loved ones).
But, may I ad, regarding your post, that I was in the military, Spec Ops.
And there was a girl there. While we were eating from the ground, she had to eat from plates in the kitchen. While we pushed our bodies and minds to
the limit, she was sensitive...And so on...
And some stuff triggers me off, and actually pisses me off.
To give you an example, being a male, if you are hungry in the Spec Ops, and you actually ask for food, you're asking for a "warmup" beating.
If you try to give up, you are either expelled from the course, or you're receive some beating UNTIL you can actually drop out.
Now, we endure that, so that we can grow stronger. If we live through the training, there isn't anything in the world that could make us weak.
BUT, it does get annoying when they build showers just for girls. When they have softer training exercises, when they have more time to accomplish
As a military, while on duty, I can't see any reason in that.
In those situations, equal doesn't mean nicer. It means that you MUST be able to carry your "brothers" body on your back, and all of them must
believe they can count on you to do it, if necessary, like many other demanding tasks.
If we are training people with different standards, it's no surprise that in the field they are outkast's, and that people stay "away" from
There are situations were equal is equal. Not "equal for the good stuff, but we are girls in the demanding stuff".
And women must realize that there are things out there that a women can't do. I can accept that I don't breast feed my kid, or that I could give
birth to a human being.
Why can't women understand some limitations (although, many are cultural, but still on the womens mind) that they have.
And, most of all, a salute to the women who actually understand that and become great professionals, in any area that they pursuit, with EQUAL
