You don't know, Dav, because you've likely never had to deal with it.
Putting us on a pedestal makes us less human, and is another way that women are objectified. "Oh women, they're so sacred and wonderful and holy and good, so they should stay at home where they won't get dirty."For goodness sake women. You are better than us. Men are disgusting, nasty, self-obsessed, simple-minded, and that's just the tip of it.
Men are, on average, physically stronger. But women are equally aggressive, according to numerous studies.Which gender makes up the vast majority of the prison population?
At this point, we don't know precisely what causes it. And I say that as a professional in the field.Do you really expect me to believe that that is caused by social pressure?
studies of domestic violence find that women in abusive relationships are as likely to physically assault their significant others as they are to be assaulted. Women assault men at the same level that men assault women. Why aren't these reported? Because of these kinds of entrenched gender bias that we're talking about.How often do you hear about "husband abuse"?
Because women are delicate little creatures who are just too pure and holy to act like this.
This is why women have an overwhelming advantage in court when it comes to getting custody of the kids. It's unfair to men.
This is why women are treated as victims in domestic violence and men are treated as perpetrators. Again, similarly unfair.
We have a lot of MISTAKEN ideas about what it means to be a woman or a man.
In reality, we're humans. There is as much divergence and fluctuation WITHIN a gender as there is BETWEEN the genders.
Women are not better, kinder, sweeter, more innocent, cleaner, or more nurturing than men.
