sexism , like racism, is a social construct based on priveleage and power.
At present, women make 75 cents to the dollar in comparison to men. Class wise, women have no social power over men - and thus can not be sexist.
...That is a whole nother discussion. But just thought I would help you out with that.
. That woman you are talking about just proves the point of my last paragraph of my first post in this thread. Masculinity and Femininity are both admirable and needed traits. Irresponsible hedonistic behavior and blaming others when forced to reap the consequences of this behavior are the roots of the crime and social problems. Women have traditionally in western culture had lower crime and incarceration rates because there has traditionally been more conditioning from an earlier age to restrain hedonistic impulses and exert more self restraint. Also we tend to channel them in ways that end up destroying self rather than outwards in ways that destroy others. But that is changing and women are committing more violent crimes now, as we slip away from the boys will be boys cover for bad behavior and extend it to excuse all manner of bad behavior in everyone.

There's a simple answer to this. MEN AREN'T ALONE.
Don't worry, I'll keep bringing it back to the women until they accept they hold just as much blame as we do.
It's about time we started pointing the finger back. I've dealt with this one lady for the past few weeks who acts all high and mighty like she can do nothing wrong. She decided to go back to this douche she was seeing just for the kicks of it, then she gets an illness from various "activities" with him and she blames it all on him.
And every time I point out how SHE went back to HIM, she gets mad. Nope, I have no sympathy for this thread. I've been itching to bring the injustice out of the closet.
And for this opportunity, I thank you all.edit on CSaturdaypm242403f03America/Chicago25 by Starchild23 because: (no reason given)

You think i can't get a man? You assume i am fat and ugly?
I know that i can have sex any night of the week because men are easy. Men don't like that, so they call women easy if they do.edit on 25-2-2012 by Itisnowagain because: (no reason given)

That's exactly how most of feminists are.
They want the same positive things men have while keeping all the feminine advantages.
Pretty girls should have the opportunity to live in a man's body for a month and see if it's that easy to get what they want.

..I've been away..things have gotten interesting.
Another stereotype of "masculinity" is the oedipus complex driven habit of men needing women to spoon feed them information. I don't typically like to do this, but in the interest of time.
..lets try to get things back on track: example,
Women are worse drivers than men.
statistics show this to be a fact.
Personally I am a good driver. And it is true, the statistics don't account for the whose whats whens and whys.
The statistics simply identify a recurring pattern and we can use this to further discover WHY if we so choose.
Now that I've broken your sisters snickers bar in two (even though you hate chocolate)
Perhaps you can calm your tantrum, lets talk.
What is interesting,.besides the slurs, is that I provided examples of"masculinity" gone awry in our modern society. Agression that once protected now a tool of abuse. A sexual prowess used to populate turned into uncontrolled sexual deviance, etc.
Now a wise man who would argue against my point would maybe address "what is masculinity".
Instead the man have said, they NEED their anger and have turned womens "minds games" into evidence that we too are damaging...
ironically, this is a side effect of "masculinity" . Not being emotionally mature enough to take a little heart ache and using your "how could this happen to meeee, I'm a man" cry to victimize themselves.
Playa, grow up.
We're talking about young men bashing their girlfriends heads in because they "didn't know what else to do" (see the lacrosse player from UVA)
This is not a comparison to women "being bi--@# s"

It has always been your choice to live how you choose, and what type of human you will be including what you explore within yourself and utilise.
I can tell you first hand you will be made to swear to that which will take hold if you play, the wrong way. The choice is yours though.
You can also choose to keep coming back to make the same mistakes, it is your right as an individual energy.
So love is truly not enough...? That perfect memory of the perfect day with the perfect person, which seems timeless, that is not enough? Looking at the perfection you created just by making love is not enough?
What more is there?
Just for your reference, there was never meant to be such struggle.
