Once upon a time in the not so dim and distant past, to have admitted to, or expressed such feelings, would have resulted in ostracism and ridicule.
Then, when men began to, 'open up' it was referred to as 'being in touch with their feminine side'......
that's an interesting point, don't you think?
how is it recent? poetry, art and the like are not exclusive female domains, and certainly express emotion.
this is yet another generalisation!
Males having feelings is not the result of some modern womans movenent nor is the expression of them.
then why do these feelings - against women - persist in so called intelligent cultures?
when you are demonstrating these feelings toward men, this question is a joke, and another generalisation.
sexism is found in any era, to one extent or another, social roles and duties change with the times, and thinking that it was a stead slope instead of a wave in how either sex have been is ridiculous.
Can you not see, or understand how offended we are that as your equals in life, we are still systematically being subjected to such treatment?
Broaden your view... I'm condemning the treatment of women in what we term to be third-world cultures, but also deploring western male attitudes to women, as being overbearing and authoritarian.
It goes on, it persists and it's unacceptable.
cruelty to animals makes more headlines, and causes greater outcry that current global treatment of women today.
how can men be held responsible for the third world countries? and where are men being overbearing and authoritarian in the west?
your more than willing to scream problems women have with men but not those men have with women!
And what collective crime have women been guilty of that you could hold us up to the same condemnation?
so far, in history, it seems our main crime has to have been women.....
we are not in they year 1012 but 2012 and in the west for the most part, I have not seen any condemnation here except from the three mentioned, and these examples are weak generalisations, and when a woman actually said to hold on think for a moment, she was turned on disrespected with misrepresented.
Look at this thread.
Two people have spoken up 'for' the sentiments expressed here.
Look at how bristling and defensive, and offended the men have been, and have leapt to their own defence and condemned my arguments as mere spite and hostility
you did say this (emphasis added in these quotes from other posts)
Yet the moment a woman complains - in a location frequented mostly by men - that they feel justified in resenting the male race for this treatment, there is always one that says 'women can be just as bad'.
you are saying there is no resentment here? according to http://www.merriam-webster.com/thesaurus/spite
they are related words and they do seam to be different angles of the same thing.
or this basis for your generalisations
Why is it then, that every time i feel i am beginning to conquer my emotional aversion to the male of the species - some dominating, arrogant, heavy-handed male chauvinist comes along, scuppers my practice and spoils it all, by proving my previous sentiments and suspicions, right?
were these sentiments and suspicions about how nice men are in general or a damn the many due to the few?
At one time I was hearing a couple of blokes say how they got verbal abuse for holding a door open for a woman, I didn't really believe this until it happened to me, and then I noticed more and more electric doors have been installed in shops, or other places frequented by the public, work places etc, could there be a relation? women don't like a door being held open for them due to the sexist nature of the act, yes a broad generalisation due to the responses of the few! and I know women who have no problem with simple acts of kindness, not going to blame the many for the misdeeds of the few!
how easy is it for a man to be accused of rape, even when it wasn't? and what is the attitude?
don't you see what women are up against in general, by the mere inclusion of those posts?
this is a cross-section and general consensus of opinion of society, condensed into a forum.....
Don't you guys get it - ?!
don't you see the general attitude men have to deal with each and every day in society? if you believe this is a one way thing where women are pure and blameless, you are wrong.
I wonder what would happen if a man expressed the sentiment being expressed by yourself in this thread.
