    You might see it as retarded but I disagree, if anyone at all should be barred from voting (and I do not believe someone should be barred from that) it should be men who should be barred and not women.

    IMO, men and women are equal and in centuries this equality will only become stronger. I am not a fan of the "metro-sexual man" but men could do worse than do things a bit more like women do. Emotions and talking things trough between a man and a woman should not be dirty words but common practice.
    This is very amusing after one spends years reading gender historians and feminists criticize the mechanisms through which the generations rationalized social constructions of gender relations and politics.

    You heard it here first. Callin' it.
    What? That men and women are equal but that for women (and men) in this day and age there are still battles to be fought to reach that equality? I am sorry but why should feminists take offense at that.

    For all intents and purposes in the context of this discussion, it is.
    And I did not bring it up out of nowhere, remember the title of the thread and the opinion of the daft tea party lady that said it.
    She didn't say anything about taking away men's right to vote. She made a sexist remark about women, and you used that to bring up out of nowhere, and justify, your own prejudiced thoughts and ideas about men and voting.
    You might see it as retarded but I disagree, if anyone at all should be barred from voting (and I do not believe someone should be barred from that) it should be men who should be barred and not women.
    See, the only person making it an either/or situation here is you. The only person attempting to actually make a case for why one sex could justifiably be barred from voting, is you.

    Well now you're stereotyping men AND women in an attempt to demonstrate that men are inherently worse in some way, and should think and behave more like women. That's sexism, guy.

    Ummm, no. You very clearly stated in that post that there are NO valid battles to be fought in this day and age for women's rights. THAT'S what they will have a problem with. Want me to quote it again?

    Yes, which was a "response" not simply responding to what she said about women, but instead launching into a separate and sexist tirade about men... out of nowhere.

    It was just a writing/translation error, typed too fast and corrected my sentence.

    Fact, there are still battles, battles that actually where almost won and some people try to turn back again (like the right to decide what happens in a woman's body early in their pregnancy but that is for another thread).

    There is also still a glass ceiling women have to fight against, in business but especially in politics. It is time for the first female president IMHO.

    You're going to be gravely disappointed when it happens. Politics will not be transcended.

    Ahhh, a typo. Ok, well I'm sure you probably just appeased the feminists, then.

    Any chance you want to also take back some of the offensive things you said about men while you're at it? Daaaahhhh, who'm I kidding. Our feelings, and our standing in the tide of culture don't matter.

    Why ought we be offended? I just see it as naive in terms of actual contemporary research and the historical record. We have been there and done that. When women had gained the right to vote, politics was supposed to be transformed in so many ways, including the slow down of wars. It was a romantic definition of female aptitude that ironically was connected with the intellectual history men placed upon the figure of womanhood that the suffragists embraced with full-force. It turned out to be dramatically false.
