I think it's funny when people pick out a few exceptions they heard, read about, or their friend/family went through to disprove a general rule...

we live in a culture where women are targets of sexual violence.... b/c they have and continue to be undervalued... little girls and boys should be taught to value, respect, and treat each other as human beings... little boys, since they will grow up to be men... and a high percentage of accused, convicted, and rape perpetrators are men... need to learn to respect other folks' bodily integrity....

That shit doesn't seem too impractical to me either... this should be taught at schools, homes, communities... etc...

That still doesn't mean women are going to not get picked on for various criminal acts.
By the time there is a complete change were we see women as equals and maybe to such extent we'll become an Matriarch society we and probably our grandchildren are going to be long dead.

So yeah learn martial arts or learn how to use a fire arm (properly) and you'll be on your way for no weak ass nukkah to fuck with you.

Lol. Of course no one here, I think especially Kool arrow and chavela expressed, the call for practicality and pragmatic strategizing for women.... Ie. b weary of urself and have some skills that will help defend oneself. But in doing that there also needs to b other efforts to make it where, I don't fucking know, violence against women, sexual in particular, should not b commonplace or received w "that's just the way it is," attitudes...

My nickel

First off, Stabnadez or whatever his name is, is a bitch.
However, saying this is awful and we need to do something to change this does as much to change it as saying thats "just the way it is".

I think prison rape is terrible as well, but that shit still happens and you have to take certain steps to make sure you're not a victim (should one ever end up in prison).

what we can do to change mens attitude towards women, is not the topc of discussion here.

i gave some concrete ways people can change that kinda climate... the original post was referring to family and cultural shit... but all that don't exist in a vacuum... it's all related to this whole "maybe women shouldn't be out by themselves b/c the wolves r out."

I didnt see it. I just read some stuff about teaching respect, value,etc. Nothing too specific.

When I was in 7th grade, I remember my teacher Mr Beecher told us boys (me in particular) that slapping girls on the ass and snapping their bras was inappropriate. A couple years later, he got busted for banging one of his students. What a douche

Lightbulb Re: I want to know what men are made of

In response to the initial question, the stereotype of women as weaker than men is a myth dating into antiquity in several parts of the world. Yet as men were often at war, women were left with the responsibility of doing the hard labor that the men were no longer there to perform. Women have an unacknowledged history of performing some pretty darn hard labor. This culture promotes sun dresses, soft skin and anorexic bodies but women have consistently proven they have the capacity to physically excel.

A great example of this is earlier this year. The Obama administration and the Pentagon passed a desicion to undo centuries of military tradition and begin allowing women to serve in the infantry. This is a particularly strenuous and dangerous role in military combat. It says alot about the capability and dedication of women.

I respect the desicion to allow women on the front lines. They were already doing other jobs that were putting them in the line of fire and having shoulder propelled rockets getting fired at them. Due to the injuries women have sustained while serving in the Iraq/Afghanistan wars I feel the old stereotype of men as superior and women as fragile weaklings should be laid to rest.

You can read about the White House/Pentagon's desicion to make history by allowing women to serve in direct combat here:

I am glad that women are now allowed to serve in infantry if they so choose. I think that that is great progress, it just sucks that it has to be a man to allow this decision, I hate that it is a man granting us this privilege.
