Not long ago i heard Germaine Greer say on a womans chat show that men were obsolete, not only that she said men were smelly, brutish and some other
nasty stuff and every time she said one of these things she got a massive round of applause from the audience.
Now reverse this, what if a man said stereotypical, sexist things about a woman on tv and got cheers from the crowd. That man would be in major
trouble, forced to apologise and generally demonised as a scumbag and typical chauvanist pig.
It seems when a woman is sexist it's empowering and just a bit of fun, when a man is sexist he's a throw back to a bygone era. Men and women are
equal, the wage discrepancy in some areas is wrong. However this wage discrepancy doesn't quite match the social discrepancy credited to women.
As mentioned by others, in family court it is the women who are favoured, even if they are the worse choice of parent.
In divorce court it is often the woman who is favoured in splitting the material worth.
In spousal abuse it is women who are favoured, when a man is beaten he is often laughed at, even by the police! Not only that but if a man is being
beaten and defends himself he will no doubt be the one going to pirson as his partners story will be accepted over his.
When it comes to the important stuff it seems feminism has swung the other way, no longer is it a noble cause about equal rights, it's about getting
more rights for women and screwing men over.
The funny part is that feminists often said if they were in power things would be different, well it's not quite working that way is it. To me it
seems modern feminists are actually out for revenge for what happened years ago and how past women were treated. Hardly the superior attitude we were
informed the ladies have.
Of course any man voicing his concerns is automatically a sexist pig so we can't win the argument.
And yeah i realise not all women are like this, i just get really annoyed when i see some womans chat show or other and they happily make fun of men
and get massive rounds of applause. Oh and another thing, why is it women can have half naked men on the show and everyone cheers, applauds, makes
lewd comments and the like but when a women shows herself off on some show or other the new wave of feminists claim this is exploitative and the women
have no self respect?
Meh the whole things wrong and i'm rambling a bit now but one last thing.
Why do women have "equalizers"? For example in the armed forces they can use stools to climb walls which are to high for them, they don't have to
complete the tracks in the same time as the men. How is this equal? Surely to be truly equal it means you do the same thing, in the same way.
