  •  I focused on women, cars, and whiskey (0+ / 0-)

    but it didn't do me much good.

    We don't need newer and better cars, just less of them.

    Third world women don't need educations they already have, just a pill that doesn't cost more than they can afford. All my sisters in law have had 2 kids or less. They grow rice in Laos.

    If you could stop buying stuff and burning so much fuel they'd really appreciate it. They depend on the weather to feed those 2 kids.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

    •  All women need is a pill? (0+ / 0-)

      I really can't find the words to express how I feel about that statement.   Enormous anger, for a start, but that doesn't really do it full justice, somehow.  


      Just, Wow!!!!

      It's OK if women get raped, as long as they have their little pill?!  

      Women already have all the education they need?  


      It is attitudes like this that perpetuate social problems around the globe.

      •  You seem to put words in my mouth (0+ / 0-)

        The pill is how you stop unwanted pregnancy and overpopulation. I've yet to meet women who want ten kids, but the pill costs too much.

        Long way down off that high horse eh?
