how i am seeing it today, as opposed to yesterday. and why women are being so forceful

young and old.

just in one particular issue. sexual dominance. who is gonna get to own it.

in the past we did not recognize it or we pretended we did not or we refused to be educated so we could recognize it. then we recognized it and stayed quiet. now....

now

it is recognized. it is called out. and we are finding in our legislation, our states, our justice system, our military, our universities.... we are clearly hearing it is a mans privilege, right, entitlement.

a general got off on 3?, 4? assaults and grinning, went on his way out of the court house.

a student uses his free speech to tell fellow male students to rape a girl in particular, and still attends the school.

a judge says a 13 yr old is more at fault with her rape, and subsequent suicide because she was more sexuality mature than a 40 something yr old man. who could blame this poor beffuddled man while his dick was involved. really? and he got NO time.

what we see today.

is our courts, police, military, govt. stand and clearly tell us women that they have it handled. men dominate. and feminism and women as a whole, and all their male supporters can fuck off. lol.

that is what i am feeling and seeing today. and the bottom line will be and is.... NO. unacceptable. thank you for showing your hand. now... time for us to unite and a simple, no.

we hear it on the board. i am hearing it from men here.

that it is biology. that there is not a rape culture. rape apology/dismissal/denying.

just a little free thinking this morning. so looking at moving to colorado springs. in thinnking about co sprs, it brought in my experience and feel. a town that is so comfortable and .... happy. with the military element. the opposite feel of the town as a whole. military is just pockets.... in the area i spent the time in. so, i do not think they have the town. a whole interesting feel with legalization, with the youth because knowledgeable and participants, well educated, forceful, vocal. strong dems.


i am going to edit and continue conversation in my own OP. i have not done this before. but, for clarification and further thought...

just in one particular issue. sexual dominance. who is gonna get to own it.


i am thinking "own it" and it made me realize. own WOMANS sexuality. who is going to get to OWN fuggin' WOMANS sexuality. isnt that really fuggin disgusting... everyone.

While I am female and cannot possibly feel how a man does, I would think this attitude would be very insulting to 99.9% of men. Your brain cannot control your other "brain"? So does that mean that men can rape their daughters, little girls or women walking down the street, Granny in wheelchairs because their little brain says so? Isn't this what this attitude is reading between the lines?

Sick, and at least all the men I know, would agree with the word SICK.

to pretend and giggle, accuse that a man has two brains. we treat his anatomy as detached. as the dick is so fuggin all that to have its own fuggin brain.

now. this is the area i ALWAYS defend men. being their greatest advocate. as SOME continually call me a man hater and ONLY saying ugly things about men. this is where i so strongly disagree and prooff that i am all that in defending man

that is such (lol, oops) poppycock...

i would be so angry having this said about me. about like, i do not have a brain ... not one, let alone TWO... cause i am a woman and emotional or some such check

here i am men... all over on your side.

two brains... bullshit

i say.

how many of you men stand with me, in my defense of you

now, i will continue to read. thank you.... hockeymom. luvs you

"A man's brains are between his legs" is little more than a contrived excuse that allows far too many men a convenient rationalization of our poor choices.

It's an excuse which denies us our discipline of both the mind and of the body-- and as human discipline can be a rather ethically inconvenient thing standing in the way of our desires, the weak man, giving in to those desires will use "A man's brains are between his legs" as a way to justify to himself that he has no control over his actions.

You (seabeyond, along with a handful of others) are often labeled a "man-hater" in point of fact, because you won't allow people to use that excuse, and call them on it... because you guys expect men-- all men (as well as all humans)-- to use our rational minds to overcome our childish excuses.

And the human condition hates to be held to a higher and more rational standard than the one's we are comfortable with... even if (especially when) that higher standard begins to deny us our convenient excuses to do what we want to rather than what we should.


Shame... shame on you for holding humanity to a rational standard instead of patting us on the head when we debase ourselves.
