    I've been actively involved in various online debate forums - I've seen nothing but an increase in outspoken sentiments against women and false notions of 'dirty skanky liberal feminists'

    I don't think there's an actual INCREASE in men who eat their feet this way: I just think it's less taboo to say what you're actually thinking.

    "War against women" is just a buzz phrase, and nothing should distract from the fact that sexism does exist in this country.
    Exactly, "war on women" is just a phrase that pundits and politicians throw around to get a point across without actually delving to deep into the issue. It's meant to get the base excited to vote, to be obnoxious and all that. Things like that, which ALL sides use, are just like catchphrases.

    However, phrases like that, while hyperbolic, usually point to a problem in society that is either perceived or actual. "War against women" points to the perceived and actual attacks on women through sexist rhetoric or policy positions. In a more intellectual society, citizens would just be able to talk about their perceptions on this issue. However, in our society we rely on phrases like "war against women" and "annihilation of unborn children" to communicate.

    Excuse me? Only men die in battles while women safely enjoy rights?

    And people actually thanked this comment?

    Women die in war and battle all the time - or did you miss history class? Heck: did you miss the news lately? Nevermind history class.

    And note that men are usually the ones to push against the idea of women being on the front lines - and even in the military altogether - and so forth . . . so if there's a lack of dying women it's due to the fact that men don't want them there.

    But yet - amazingly - that hasn't kept them from dying anyway.

    Wait a minute are you insinuating that liberal women are not dirty and skanky? Is it true that they don't shave their armpits or bath very often? I also here it said that they participate in orgies and don't brush their teeth afterwords.

    That's like saying "I am a racial minority, so how can I be racist?"

    Women can and women have been against themselves. A lot of racist, white power women are extremely sexist and patriarchal. I don't know what's wrong with some people, but gender doesn't exclude somebody from sexism.

    That is ludicrous. Prove it or retract it.

    I do not know many women within 10- or 10+ years of my age who did not know someone who died from an illegal abortion. I lost a 14 yr old friend to one. A female boss I once had lost 2 friends and one family member to illegal abortions.

    I've now read the thread, and it went in the direction I hoped it would not: Abortion.

    Pity. All chance of meaningful discussion about a topic that troubles me deeply went with it.

    I certainly support your idea on more women to women sex.
