6. One of the biggest obstacles in fighting the sexist/misogyny/disrespect cultural disease...

Is that it is so deeply and insidiously ingrained and accepted in our society. By all.

From hiding behind supposed humor to simpleton snarks on message boards to full-on open disrespect of females, the mindset in entrenched deeply in society and will take exhausting measures to change. Itís almost as natural as breathing at some point.

Gender entitlement, insecurity, lack of confidence, meanness, weak character, ignorance...all play a part. Males practice it (sometimes without awareness), females accept it (often with same lack of awareness as well).

Damn tough to change but long overdue. And it will encounter serious adjustment along the way from everyone.
