    what you are saying I just am amazed at the angst.  People commenting on others sexuality in any way is uncouth and wrong.   However, all of this has much more impact on a woman than a it has on a man.  You are just upset.  We are subjected to articals like the one this diary cites.  We are denied oppportunity.  We get pregnant from rape.  We are murdered far more frequently.  And truly, power doesn't care.  So your beef just doesn't resonate for me.  I don't want to be rude to you and your concerns but I get mad with the weak comparisons.

    Everyone! Arms akimbo!

      No angst, and let's just say that I agree with the vast majority of what you say—I merely worry that we head down the road to worse times once again (after all of the progress that's been made over the last century) so long as we fail to rectify the kinds of thinking that made such injustices possible in the first place.

        my use of past tense is in no way meant to divert eyes from the forms of violence (emotional, verbal, physical, structural) that continue.

        Only to acknowledge that as a matter of sheer numbers, we have made some progress—which we now see shockingly slipping away once again with today's right wing (for reasons, to my eye at least, that I've outlined).
