3. do whatever you WANT as long as you can "avoid" the consequences one way or another.

your post is right on. i have been saying a couple years or more now that what is happening politically with repugs, the war on women is the last decade and a half of allowance of the disrespect of women in so many ways. media, porn, evo psych, all of it is about empowering male dominance and dehumanizing the woman.

even for the women that are "ok" with all this, as our human spirit or whatever one may choose to identify with, the disrespect given is not going to be shrugged off. so, though it may appear a woman is ok and mellow about it all, she still feels the disrespect within and human spirit does not allow. it will be reciprocated one way or another from the woman. it does not behoove man any more than women to allow this to continue and escalate.

no one wins
