I’m going to assume you are presenting this, finally, as an answer to my question about what your point was in all of this uncivil behavior.
It doesn’t sound very much like you are really interested in an answer to your question about my cojones, since you have stated the question in such a highly discourteous way as to leave no possibility for any real discussion. So, I’ll just take a page from your playbook and be slippery and sanctimonious.
I am still okay with the previous statement. And if you truly can’t see why my position is principled and legitimate, you have my sympathy because after all, this is English we are speaking here.
I still see a substantive difference between women who have suffered under our misogynistic culture but were afraid to protest until it became fashionable, and women for whom the suffering was never okay and they at some point drew a line and defended it. And I recognize that the current fashionability of speaking up has changed the game because it’s such a large groundswell. It is the groundswell that made the cover of Time, not the individual women.
You may be unaware that there are other institutionalized, systemic injustices in the world besides this one, injustices to which men are just as vulnerable as women. And other men see male victims of such injustice in this same way that I outlined above. Such victims are either too ineffectual to defend themselves, or they are willing to put their asses on the line in some way to get some justice.
I think that’s all I’ve got for you here, Lotus. Take it or leave it, but either way…kindly quit trolling my thread.
