A Follow Up On Gender Equality

Why Gender Equality Will Never Be–As I See It

I hardly ever revisit my posts, however this one bears a follow up.  Equality on all levels is important, no one should be considered different than another based on something they have no control over:  race, gender, or sexuality.  However, there is a rather nasty double standard out there when it comes to gender equality.  We have come a long way from the days when women were considered chattel and treated as less than human; this is a very good thing.  However, women are not held to this same standard and treat men in a manner and fashion which, if the tables were turned, would be labelled as sexist, misogynistic, woman hating…  etc.  My question is simple, why are women held to a different standard on these issues?  Why are the rules not the same on all sides of the gender fence?  Let’s take a look at some specific instances to illustrate my point.

DILFs of Disneyland – Seems a rather harmless enough page, right?  Well, when men post sites like this there is a ton of uproar about objectifying women, how these men are all potential rapists and how creepy it is for a man to be taking random pictures of women they do not know.  In reading comments about this site I see, “Men like it.”  “It’s just harmless looking.”…  you know, all the same comments men would make about a MILF site, but someone it’s right when women do it?  Side note:  When I commented on the dilf page on Instagram, not only was my commented deleted, I was blocked from seeing the page.

Women Raping Men – It really bothers me how people think this cannot happen.  How it is impossible for a woman to overpower a man, or if a man gets an erection it’s consent…  really?  That is like saying if a woman has an orgasm while being raped she is consenting, we have little control over how are bodies react sexually.  For woman who think men have control over their erections, you have obviously really never been around a teenage male.  But seriously, it does happen, women do rape men and yes I do stipulate the reported numbers are not as high as women getting raped by men, but they are there nonetheless.

I cannot stress this point enough–in order to establish complete gender equality, the rules have to apply exactly the same to all parties.

Here is a link to a petition I have started on Change.org, I would appreciate it if people sign it, if not that is OK.

“My texts are more important than your life.”

“My texts are more important than your life.”

Well, no actually they aren’t, but this seems to be the common thought process of most people out there.  Earlier today I chose to participate in the conversation on this article.  I fully admit I am one of those guys who will yell at a driver, “Hey, hang up and drive @$$hole!”  Nothing pisses me off more than seeing these people driving around looking at their phones reading texts–I cannot even tell you the number of times I have been “bumped” by a driver to distracted to see me in the crosswalk, and mind you I am 6’8 and 300 pounds, so not exactly like I blend in.

Paying To Comment on News Sites

A while back the Lewiston Sun Journal discontinued anonymous commenting on news stories and went to a verification system.  No big deal, I felt, I have never been one to hide myself from my own words.  While it met with a great deal of opposition, the comment sections became, not tamer, but more respectful in what was said.  This was a good thing as people were not able to post with impunity anymore, and others were able to post knowing anyone who became insulting or degrading would be held accountable.
