    You see it out of nowhere, I do not see it out of nowhere.

    In Pakistan a 14 year old girl was shot in the face because she dared to fight for women's education rights. Some idiot men shot her in the head because they wanted to silence a woman who was standing up for herself. Luckily it backfired and shows not all men and woman are as stupid as those that shot her.

    In the US a woman called Sarah Fluke had the audacity to give her opinion about birth control and what was the result? A mister Limbaugh thought he had to add his 2 cents to the discussion by saying the following:


    What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic], who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We're the pimps. (interruption) The johns? We would be the johns? No! We're not the johns. (interruption) Yeah, that's right. Pimp's not the right word. Okay, so she's not a slut. She's "round heeled". I take it back.

    Can you imagine if you're her parents how proud of Sandra Fluke you would be? Your daughter goes up to a congressional hearing conducted by the Botox-filled Nancy Pelosi and testifies she's having so much sex she can't afford her own birth control pills and she agrees that Obama should provide them, or the Pope.
    What did presidential nominee Mitt say: "it’s not the language I would have used.". Really, the language is the problem? I would beg to differ. Mister Santorum decided to say "an entertainer can be absurd." Yeah, absurd is what I would call the response of mister Santorum.

    Some republican men had the guts to speak up and denounce it in the most clear words, men like Senator McCain, who said that Limbaugh's statements were unacceptable "in every way" and "should be condemned" by people across the political spectrum. And a man like David Frum who said:
    "Limbaugh's verbal abuse of Sandra Fluke set a new kind of low. I can't recall anything as brutal, ugly and deliberate ever being said by such a prominent person and so emphatically repeated. This was not a case of a bad 'word choice'. It was a brutally sexualized accusation, against a specific person, prolonged over three days.
    But Mister Frum is a speech writer so he can say things nicer than most people can

    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.
    Yes, writing error/translation error. In Dutch the sentence I had in my mind worked beautifully, when I wrote it down in English it got lost a bit in translation.

    Fair enough. I guess one man's naive is another man's offensive.

    What does any of that have to do with your argument about men being less deserving of the right to vote, or whether or not it came out of nowhere?

    Besides, when men have such dramatic control of political affairs in this country and women become the so-called "51% minority," what room do we really have to be offended at another man for saying something historically and currently bunk?

    Only if they're married.

    Otherwise single women tend to elevate the government as a surrogate for the economic security a spouse provides.

    One should also be a gun owner and have served a term of service in the military before being allowed to vote, but that's for another thread.

    Not really breaking news, so I didn't put it there.

    What say you, should women be voting?
    I don't mind women voting.

    As long as the election is limited to "less filling" or "tastes great."
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    is there any relationship between owning a gun and voting?

    Is that so?

    Single women -- especially younger ones -- are exploding in the professional work force. They're actually making more than men (in general, not at the same job). It seems that they don't need much help getting on. With what they make, they don't even qualify for most government assistance.

    Not that I can see. But hey, what do I know. I'm just a single woman.
