It's really unfortunate that you've consciously chosen to try to polarize the sexual divide rather than work to bridge the gap between us. Women
aren't your enemy.
You point to a disproportionate number of male versus female executives in your workplace to substantiate your claim of preferential treatment, but
the same could be said if I were to apply with the local fire department, police department, or other male dominated occupational field. It doesn't
Based on your statements regarding cheating and unfair treatment, I can only assume that you've suffered through the family court system and have had
bad experiences. "The system" can be rough and absolutely unfair, but basing your voting decision on hopes that all women will suffer for the
misdeeds of those that hurt you is just wrong.
I've yet to encounter situations in which employment quotas were used as the basis for giving female candidates preferential treatment over their
male counterparts. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but rather that I've never personally seen that happen. My problem with what you posted,
however, is when you state:
As the men lose their jobs, they are replaced by incompetent women, who act so smart and professional.....but are horrible leaders and are
incompetent in their jobs and are only protected by women who are in even higher positions on the job. They collude and conspire against the men in
the workforce and try their best to pin their feeble mistakes on the men that are under their (if you want to call it that) "leadership". Most
businesses that are managed by women fail. They are started by men and when the men lose their positions,.....women then destroy the empire the man
built...well like a cancer...which is what those pink ribbons mean to me.
How dare you imply that all women are incompetent, backstabbing conspirators in your so called "war against men." Quit reading the trash spewed by
people like Henry Makow, and open your mind to the possibility that some of us really are capable professionals that work to treat all people fairly.
Quit reading the celebrity trash gossip, turn off your TV, and open your eyes so that you can see that most of us really aren't as you describe.
You'd have people believe that as a woman I've never earned anything on my own knowledge or merits, and have had everything handed to me by virtue
of having a vagina. I worked my way through college while raising two kids. I paid 100% of my own education. I served my country in my capacity as
a commissioned US military officer, and let me tell you, it's no easy feat for a woman to earn the respect of her male peers in a military society.
I took and passed my series 7 and series 63 exams without cheating or sleeping with the exam administrator. When I returned to medicine, I proved
myself as a extremely capable doctor who demanded nothing but the absolute best service and performance of her staff and herself. I EARNED all of
those things because I took proactive steps to make them happen rather than complain that the cards weren't stacked in my favor.
Regarding breast cancer/prostate cancer awareness, I see social stigmas as being the biggest factor in public campaigns. When it comes to breast
cancer, women are used to our periodic self examinations, and most of us are actively aware of the risks. Many men see the word "breast," they
snicker, assume that we've got everything under control (though volunteering to assist if we need help), and the world keeps spinning. Prostate
cancer, unfortunately, isn't such an open topic. Men are largely more private in regards to medical issues, and many/most are terrified of promoting
prostate cancer awareness because unlike the "fun" aura surrounding women's boobs, the primary prostate examination involves a rectal examination.
Anything "rectal" scares the hell out of many men, and the last thing they want is to openly advertise such. I don't agree with the stigma, but it
IS there and it IS a factor. If you want to support prostate awareness, I *ABSOLUTELY* support your efforts.
If you want to vote for Romney for all the wrong reasons, that's certainly your prerogative, but in doing so you're proving to those around you that
you're the type of person who would rather usurp the status quo for all the wrong reasons, while failing to stand up and fight for the right reasons.
