My title is a bit of a cheeky pun, I don't mean sexism everywhere, I mean sexism predominantly right here. Now, I know there are a lot of men on here
that DO respect women and see them as their equal and I thank you. That's all I could ask for, but I think some of you are in fact liars. How do I
come to this conclusion? The new topic on "replacing men". Now, I can understand you'd get a bit defensive but surely some of your comments in
said topic could be a bit more um... Mature?
Now, like I said, I'm not calling out all men. I'm not one of those women that thinks that every single man is evil or repulsive. Some of the
comments and replies in that topic however just are. One post in general that had many videos upon comments such as "women can't even open a pickle
jar, I mean come on!!". We're weak, are we? Is that what you think? I'd like to see you go a round with me then. Now, I might be calling the kettle
black here in getting defensive myself, but I feel I have merit to.
Now, men need to stop being insecure as well as they will never be replaced. They will always have a place in this world but I think we're honestly
going back to the "women's reproductive system" argument. If a woman WANTS to get pregnant without a man or adopt, that is HER business, not yours.
Go find someone else if that bothers you. I'm also going to point out that they in fact ARE experimenting with changing a female's egg into sperm
and have yielded some results. I don't have any links, go search for yourselves, this is a rant topic.
Why does this bother men? This technique will most likely be used by same sex couples who want to have a child that's really both of theirs and I
think it's beautiful. Bear in mind not ALL women are lesbians so I honestly don't know where the stigma and upset was coming from yesterday. As
well, I'm sure that if eggs can become sperm, I'm sure the reverse is true as well. I'm sure sperm can become egg as well as we share a lot of the
same DNA. So once again, why be upset about things like that? It's still equal biologically on both sides and agendas.
I'm just going to close with the fact that I am indeed bi so I feel that I don't entirely need men, but I enjoy them and would certainly choose a
man as my partner and have. I'm a feminist and I do not think this deserves the connotation of "femi-nazi" either. We just believe in equal rights.
Now, I'm going to close with saying that I don't WANT any leverage over men when it comes to "equal" like other women. I just want to be
recognized as an equal because I'm another human being and deserve such. So yes, my closing statement before I head on out to a nice breakfast and a
couple of classes is this: Come at me, bro.
