Guess what? Misogyny's still not dead!

I got this from nnaylime. The op-ed article is talking about a guy who went and killed a bunch of women simply because they're women.

One reason why?

"It seems many teenage girls have sex frequently. One 16 year old does it usually three times a day with her boyfriend. So, err, after a month of that, this little [expletive] has had more sex than ME in my LIFE, and I am 48. One more reason.”
Um. What? How the fuck is that a reason, unless you're just jealous that you didn't get any? It's no reason to go and attack a bunch of women just because you never got some. Inadequacy, you say? Then stop thinking with your nether regions and start using your brain; maybe you can get a girl that way.

Sometimes I just don't get guys at all.

"Life in the United States is mind-bogglingly violent. But we should take particular notice of the staggering amounts of violence brought down on the nation’s women and girls each and every day for no other reason than who they are. They are attacked because they are female.

A girl or woman somewhere in the U.S. is sexually assaulted every couple of minutes or so. The number of seriously battered wives and girlfriends is far beyond the ability of any agency to count."

Okay, I don't think I'm going out at night any time soon if that's true.

"We would become much more sane, much healthier, as a society if we could bring ourselves to acknowledge that misogyny is a serious and pervasive problem, and that the twisted way so many men feel about women, combined with the absurdly easy availability of guns, is a toxic mix of the most tragic proportions."
So say we all.

 

In all seriousness, though... I don't really appreciate how we girls and women have been looked down on since day one. All throughout history it's the guys that get to "frolick on the primrose path of sin" while girls have to walk a narrow line of decency. When you come down to it, it's the girls that beget humanity's future. I just wish more guys could understand and RESPECT that.


Anyways! On a lighter note: I had perhaps the most boring afternoon ever, coupled with the best evening! We went to Riverside (hell on Earth, I swear by the temperature) and then had noodles at a resturant nearby. And on the way back we went shopping at South Coast Plaza and bought some perfume and a new handbag from Coach. The perfume cost seventy dollars and the bag a thousand.

Dad says he could buy two computers and three iPhones with that. I say I could get ten Permanent Accounts. LOL.
