As if men in the US are going to sit back and have their democracy taken away by feminists.
What a joke article.

But, it is remarkably honest, for a change, for this bunch to openly declare their opposition to democracy on anything but their terms. It would be fun and interesting for the Democrat party in the U.S. to embrace that as part of their agenda. For the 15 minutes they last after doing so.

While it is true there are places where women suffer true injustice this article ignores the reality that in many places it is a woman’s world. It ignores that in those same places many MEN suffer injustices as well. It ignores the ridicule and blatant sexism that drives western media and advertising. It ignores how, especially in the west that fathers, men are below second class citizens in many workplaces and legal realities. It ignores the reality that males are ignored and under-reportred as victims of domestic violence. Look at all the women now in executive positions. Yet, in the interest of equal jobs, where are the women garbage collectors, coal miners, and other jobs lacking in glamour and power? Sorry this is an old song that is tired and over-played. When will we actually seek to treat all people with equal respect and stop hiding behind gender, race and religious labels?

If you start having ethnic or gender quotas, it stops being a democracy and becomes something much more dangerous, a partial birthright. Every law there is that guarantees something to one gender effectively is a ban on the other. Gender equality can only be earned in the peoples minds, not legislated into existence.

The current system promotes “hidden” discrimination that is as vile as any in the past two centuries.
