I hate it when people answer "USA" to this type of question, out of purely political reasons. If you think women are treated so badly here, go to the middle east where they are openly stoned to death for being raped.

i think we over here in the west need to remember that it wasnt long ago a womans place was in the kitchen. when they couldnt vote. when giving the wife a slap for not having dinner on the table at the right time was brushed under the rug. when women that had childeren without the father were called whores and there childeren bastards and very often sent away because of the shame it had brought on their families. hell women still make less money than men for doing the same job and domestic violence is a massive problem here. rape is also a massive problem here however conviction rates are fairly low. i think a better question would be what country's treat women well?

on another note i'v noticed that this liberating opressd women thing has been touted quite a bit as one of the reasons were in afganistan.... silly me i thought it was to capture bin laden !


Excellent post, danielhanson420. Had to give you a star for that one!

An Indian friend told me that in Tibet the men do no work. The women do everything. He was debating me against a free Tibet ,thinking China would even the labor load. He may have been misinformed.

Men all over the world have realized that treating women nicely does not ensure their happiness. We have all seen women who prefer to stay with a man who beats her than one who does not. It seems women have an innate desire to be subjugated. Feminists are among the most depressed women in the world. Let the insults fly, girls.

The way the media report things, the impression is given that ALL Muslim males treat women the same way. They're Muslim, the Taliban are Muslim, therefore....guilt by association.

Thing is, in many Western "Christian" countries, the figures for crimes of violence, rape, trafficking for sex work etc, commited against women are also very high. The instances of Pedophilia by Christian clergy, Rabbis and other flavours of religious nutjobs is shocking too, but doesn't get anything like the media coverage of some turbaned brown whacko abusing his wife or daughter.

Maybe it's just an inconvenient truth that they'd rather ignore in some sick "holier than thou" game of oneupmanship?
