I am a woman and I am certainly not a feminist. I know our limits but I also know our strengths. I find most of what you wrote little boy's dribble.
I can understand that you are peed off about certain things and I agree with them but some are leaving me speechless because no thought has gone into
About the cancer inequality:
There are just as many awareness campaigns in the UK about prostate cancer and testicular cancer than breast cancer. Problem is not many men seem to
want to go to their GP with problems out of embarrassment. Therefore to hire specialist nurses may at this moment in time not a viable options. If
more men would come forward, they would have to up their staff. It is as simple as that.
About the abortion business:
I disagree with this so much. Of course it is up to the woman to abort a child. After all it is her body that has to cope with the hormonal changes,
pain, maybe even post natal depression [which can lead to suicide] or even death during child birth. Men are in absolutely no danger whatsoever. What
are you suggesting, tying women down who want an abortion until the baby is born? Ludicrous. If there was no danger or pain associated with carrying a
child, you may have a point but as it stands you don't.
Do Schools have a men's studies class?
I agree with that, in the same way I don't see the point of groups just for blacks or other minorities. However maybe, just maybe blacks and women
didn't have as good as men in the past and these classes are trying to show them that they are worth the same?
Both agree and disagree. In most cases there is a special bond between a mother and the child she carried for 9 months. I would kill if someone would
take the child from me. On the other hand there are blatantly useless mothers, where the father should absolutely get custody. Maybe the system needs
Yes, we all know that men get also abused. However you can say what you want, men to women violence is still far far far far greater and results very
often in death. Two women a week are killed by their partners as it stands!
In other countries women get their noses cut off, get acid thrown in their faces are raped and treated like dogs. There is no way it is the same for
men. Also men have exactly the same right to report violence as women have. So no you are not discriminated against in this case!
I lost the rest but I could go on and on. Men have ruled for a long time, often treated women worse than animals [still do in many parts of the
world]. Now we are clawing back our rights and of course it hurts because life becomes less comfortable for men. So they start whining. Of course not
all men are like that [thankfully]. If you have enough self esteem you will know that you have to give a little.
I repeat that I am no feminist, meaning that I don't want to be able to do everything than men do. Women are too different for that and we have our
limits. All we want is to be treated like human beings. And sometimes the law exaggerates and gives women more rights than men. Which I disagree
Read again: I disagree with having more rights than men. However the examples given are not all viable and sound like someone is picking nits that
don't exist. In general, try and see it from both sides as I do and don't ask for rights that you can't possibly get. Men have limits too!
