Athena Brown >> Athena Brown So you think WOMEN rule the world?
^^^ No. It’s ridiculous to suggest it’s either a patriarchy or a matriarchy, as if only one or the other can exist.
We live in a mostly egalitarian constitutional republic where everyone can participate in public events and free elections (though some elements of racism still do exist, and men clearly don’t have the same power as women).
>> This IS a patriarchal society, because men have most of the power in it.
^^^ Again, I just provided you some 20 examples showing where women have the power. I’ve yet to see any instance where exclusively men have “power”.
>> That includes the right of bodily autonomy.
^^^ Roe v Wade has existed since 1973. If men had power, why did it pass? If men have power, why don’t they just overturn the ruling?
Oh, right, because women can vote, and women’s interests groups can stop them.
>> That includes the right of bodily autonomy. In this society (and it will get even worse if the rightwing “christians” have their way)
^^^ But why haven’t they gotten their way over the last 40 years? If men have all the power?
>> You’re entitled to your own opinion, but you can’t present that opinion as fact.
^^^ I gave you 20 DOCUMENTED EXAMPLES!!!! Seriously!
You haven’t presented any facts. Show me some evidence where “men have all the power”.
>> And while women CAN rape, it is BY FAR men who do it the most
^^^ According to whom? Earlier I posted statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Justice Statistics, among many other sources, demonstrating that this wasn’t the case (I guess the FBI criminal database counts as opinion because it disagrees with your narrative?)
>> and then try to excuse it many times with crap like “what was she wearing,” “was she drinking,” etc.
^^^ Over the last 60 years, there has never been 1 single instance in any mainstream media ever published (TV, magazines, newspaper, radio, etc) where rape was reported, and either of those statements were presented by the report as representing a consensus view.
That’s a fact. Show me 1 single instance where such a thing was reported and was accepted as mostly true by the general public.
What’s really mind blowing here is that a conviction of rape carried with it the death penalty until 1977. WHY ON EARTH would that happen, if men had all the power and we lived in a patriarchy?
Why would rape STILL be punishable by death in 2 states?
……… in a patriarchy? (make that
example “opinion” number 21.)
>> Victim blaming (when they even admit that a woman IS a victim of rape and don’t try to change the definition of rape)
^^^ Honestly, in the post before this one, I even posted a link to where they changed the definition of rape in 2014.
You are literally not even reading what I’m posting. You’re reading 3 sentences, then firing off with nonsense I’ve already corrected.
>> Anyone who tries to dispute that is delusional.
^^^ https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/recent-program-updates/new-rape-definition-frequently-asked-questions — yes, delusional.
If reality doesn’t fit your story, then REALITY ISN’T REAL.
