    That is true of most anything. It is the same with stopping discrimination against gays. So many have yet to embrace themselves.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    For example:
    Women fall into the "pink ghetto" because they choose to parttime or smaller paying/less intensive jobs/careers in order to raise their children. Many women are primary child care givers. It's hard for women to embrace their ability and choice to bear/raise children when they often don't have access to employer-based healthcare because they work part-time or have those "pink ghetto" jobs. Private insurers have plans that sometimes don't cover pregnancy or enough of it.
    (Of course, the new healthcare act will solve that issue)
    I made the choice to be a stay at home mom - I didn't have to. This is how it's different: it use to be the only thing expected or supported. I could have been employed this whole time.

    Being a stay at home mom by my own free choice doesn't make me less of a feminist or an individual. No one told me I had to do this - not even my husband.

    And yet she "murdered" her unborn child, and you have said that women who "murder" their unborn child shoud die. I guess there are exceptions to your rule, if they are family.

Simple logic, try it some time.
    Is your "murdering child" in prison? She had an abortion, after all. Is she still walking the streets instead of being incarcerated, or executed? Maybe that is different in your eyes.

    Afterthought on this part here:

    There will always be discrimination and oppression - somewhere, at some point: it will exist in some measure. An individual - a group of like minded people - and so forth. Just like racism: it's unaccepted in our society, we hate it, people act out against it all the time, we pass measures to try to correct it - but it will always be there in some form.

    Whether or not you let it get to you or govern the way you feel about yourself or conduct your life is the real issue.

    Couldn't we save some time by admitting that we have a war on everything?

    Govt loves wars. "The War on Poverty". "The War on Drugs". etc.

    Yes, there is a war on women. It exists in the propaganda of the far left.
