You're welcome, Milorad, and I can certainly appreciate your apprehension of my tone as misandrous.(And yes, I'm quite aware of what 'misandry' is, thank-you.)Sister Kathryn, while I appreciate that we're on the same page with regard to this topic, I do have to wonder where all this misandry is coming from.
I wouldn't blame you if you had to look that up, it's not a very common word. Misogyny is used so often that it's on everyone's lips these days, but misandry is nevertheless alive and well.
Your posts are consistently peppered with anti-male sentiment, and frankly it's beneath you. I understand having gathered a certain opinion over time, but ultimately if that's all you see in men then you're looking at the wrong men.
As proud as I am to be a feminist and speak loudly in favour of women's rights and abilities, I am also a very proud man and I don't see that there's a reason to mock my entire gender as a crutch to asserting your point of view.
There's shit in both ends of the gene pool, so perhaps it's time those of us who can tell the difference hold ourselves to a higher standard.
Thanks for reading.
Condescension, such as you displayed in your post, might have something to do with your interpretation of my particular bent in this regard, but I digress.
I do NOT mock your entire gender. I mock those who serve misogyny for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, such as Lawest100, and Grunt56, with servings of its corollary. If you choose to take that personally, well....I'm a pro-choice kinda gal. So go ahead.
But in fact, sir, I have not mocked you, and have instead made a point to thank you for your public support of the position we apparently share. It's nice to hear from men other than the one I'm ecstatically married to, that the sort of legislation being proposed in this country as regards reproductive rights, responsibilities, and freedoms (or the lack thereof) is inherently dangerous. And INTENSELY hypocritical.
I wish the so-called 'pro-life' folks (of both genders) among us, would get off their high horses with their "every fertilized egg has the right to life" meme, and realize that taking women's rights to bodily autonomy and personal risk assessment, not to mention that of self-defense, is a prelude to the removal of their own.
