It is a lie that men do most of the brave things in the Bible ONLY because it was written by men. In a time period where there was no electricity for washing machines, fridges, stoves, dishwashers, and the like – nor disposable diapers and baby formula – someone had to look after the kiddies, the cooking and the cleaning. Since there were also no tractors, chainsaws, or other heavy machinery – those with brawn did the heavy lifting while the women stayed at home and watched after the kiddies. If men got to do most of the fighting, war-mongering, and decision -making – they also did most of the dying. Yeah, the women probably got raped, but lived to complain about it – whiled the men were also raped and castratedbefore being killed – In those days it was perhaps safer to be a woman. But why quibble about facts and biology when one’s PC tantrums about men can be so much more satisfying?
or you hate god!!
I agree – they’re hypocrites. But it is not “men trying to control women’s bodies” – that is the narrative, but it still doesn’t explain why women are part of the anti-abortion base. Some of those “pro-lifers” (bad choice of words) are against it for religious reasons – just like they’re against gay this or that. They are not being logical, they are cherry-picking, but in their stupidity they are probably sincere. Those who are pro-life for foetuses and pro-death for criminals are not being hypocritical… they’re simply using different criteria. For the foestus it is “unfair to kill an innocent”. In the case of the criminal it is “justice”. There will NEVER be a satisfactory solution to this question, because one side is focused on the right to determine what one can do with oone’s own body. The other is focused on the right to life for an innocent. BOTH sides are right in their own context. and both sides re wrong in the peripheral damage caused.
Come on people, use your heads. The anti-abortion movement is NOT “misogynous” nor is it anti-women… it is basically based on what they consider to be a “right to life” for “babies”. Why do I say it is not basically misogynous? Because a LOT of the anti- abortion forces are women themselves! So pretending all of this men trying to “control women” is simply a manipulation by the PC crowd which knows that this narrative will work for them better than any other.
and that usually depends on looks or position to an extent. Men rarely leave their 50 year old wives for another woman of 50… it is almost invariably for someone 20 years younger. Good-looking women rarely fall for the burger-flipper; they want the doctors, lawyers and billionaires, even the fat, ugly detestable ones. Those who accept the burger-flipper are usually less beautiful and settling for what they can get… like less beautiful men unless they have money or position. Couples want to be friends with other couples… how many older women who get divorced suddenly realize that half her friends no longer invite her out much, because they prefer to go out with other couples? Tke . the most detestble guy or girl you know … and if they re good-looking they will still be ble to get people interested in them. So wht we cll “love” is often really something else…
Since this is a comic does that mean they are talking about strip poker? heh heh Otherwise why would she object? Why is poker worse thn “fish” or canasta?
I didn’t say that “few women get the death penalty”, I said that those who commit the same crimes as men do not get as severe sentences. You have completely side-stepped what was really being said here. Using the Bible as your proof is ridiculous; everyone cherry-picks Bible passages to their own advantage. Example: excoriating same-sex couples as "an “abomination” while forgetting that the same passage also excoriates people who eat shellfish. And yes, the Bible is very Patriarchal and misogynistic – but then we also know that the highest incidence of domestic violence is in fact lesbian couples – so what does that say about the perceived Conventional Wisdom about men? Simplistic anti-male statements don’t change facts. Men are disadvantaged (as I stated earlier) by the Patriarchy too… if we are really talking about “equality” here, let’s at least do so honestly. Any two people will always end up with power-struggles, be it a straight or gay couple,co-workers in a firm or simply two friends together…. because the real problem isn’t one of gender but one of people simply liking to control their environments and others within those environments.
a) life isn’t fair b) biology isn’t fair. Get used to it! – Women get raped in wartime, but men get killed. Is that fair? – The male population of Ukraine has been maimed and killed, but most of the women were allowed to leave. Is that fair? – Very few women are given the death penalty for murder; much fewer than men who have committed the same crime. In fact, women often get lower sentences for similar crimes. Is this fair? - Men die earlier than women. Possibly because they often do dangerous jobs that women don’t. Examples: mining (black lung); stringing high tension cables across gorges 400 feet up… in the middle of all kinds of weather etc. Both of those will have a negative toll on the body which looking after kiddies or serving coffee to your boss (and complaining about it) will not. is that fair? Go ask a man if he’d rather be raped or killed and see what he has to say.No right to abortion isn’t fair to women – but it is also unfair to men! If the woman is forced to have the baby, the man will be forced to pay upkeep on it for at least 18 years. Same if a couple gets divorced and the man doesn’t even get joint custody. If an 18 year old wants to keep a baby and the 18 year old boyfriend doesn’t, he still is expected to pay child-support even though his decision about the baby was completely ignored. Is that fair?Much of the unfairness to men comes from attitudes embedded in how the Patriarchy works, but instead of being thankful for it, feminists rage against the same Patriarchy that allows them possibilities of protection or escape which are not offered to men. Is that fair? Everyone should have the right to decide about their own bodies. I am totally against the destruction of Roe vs Wade.But at the same time, to pretend that this is MEN against women – without realizing that many men re dversely affected too – is tunnel vision!
It is a false stereotype to think that women lose their sex-drive after 40… turns out that if you give them a new man to swing with their libido comes back at a gallop! Deal with it!
