This is going to be a very controversal topic, but I had to bring it up because it really touched a nerve. If this upsets anyone, please forgive me, that was not the intent of this post.

I was on another message board today, (I know, I'm bad!) and I came across a topic written by a guy titled "It's a man's world, Deal with it!" In this post, This guy went on to say that if women want to make it in this world, we will only do so by serving men. We are to dress slutty, become hookers, and stop our whinning. He believes that behind every sucsessful women is a slutty past, and the only we make money is by being whores. According to him, this is the only way for women to get ahead in a society dominated by men. I was absolutley outraged by this.

What suprised me more after reading it, is that some posters actually agreed with him. (and they weren't all guys either). I thought that our society has overcome that whole "men are dominant" thing. I understand that there are people out there who still belive that, but I can't believe that this guy can look at a female, and see her as being his servant rather than his equal.

Anyways, just needed to vent a little. Anyone have any comments about this?

I can understand being outraged. Yes. This slightly angers me. I was raised with the "men and women are equal" thing. I believe it. When women do something great, it's only given slight media coverage. But when a woman uses her body in a socially accepted degrading manner, such as in the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, it gets headlines and everything.

And hey. Look at the major hip hop videos. I'm sorry, but thats not something I want to see. And everywhere I turn, its there.

I guess the proper thing to do would be to prove said man wrong. Fortunatly, I know plenty of men who object. So, they would back up me and all the other women who decide to make a good name for themselves.

Well, hells bloody bells, if all women were prostitutes, at least we'd finally net salaries equivalent to or higher than most mens salaries, now wouldn't we?

Somebody's got the fear and misogyny down to a science, but he isn't so hot with the math.

I do have to add that there are lots of people who think this way, and some of women who have similar feelings about men. It's the pitiiful product of what happens in a world where most only understand personal power as meaning power OVER, rather than power from within.

You might, however, want to mention to this person that women have outnumbered men in the global population for some time, so technically, we don't live in a world dominated by men at all.

How old is he? 10 months?

.....

can't even think of anything to say. Just think this guy is so dumb, it's funny. Can understand basic male chauvinism but this is just moronic.

His woman musta dumped him 5 minutes before he posted that...

...and he needed some kinda ego back.

That's like saying all men in the business were/are druggies and were badasses in school. He's a dick and I don't know where he got the whole 'whore' theory from. He must be thinking with his dick too.

It is somewhat angersome...but I'm not going to get my panties in a bunch because those strong feminist get on my nerves too. *shrugs* I just don't think about that stuff. Just live life for crying out loud...

When I have nothing nice to say about something, I choose to be quiet.
So this is yet another moment when Alaska remains silent.

Just another guy who has nothing better to do than put all the women down... and why? Because he doesn't have one. And it's a wonder why... he probably treated her like crap! Oh well... it's actually kinda funny... some guys come up with the weirdest things about our great gender
