    Bullied.

    In a world where the patriarchy CREATED masculine warfare, then used the EXCUSE of masculine warfare to create the false paradigm that women needed to be protected ......from masculine warfare.....when masculine warfare is TOTALLY is a totally unnecessary and chosen model. It is a cruel self-feeding, self-fostering behavior pattern that created a false need, that grew into a false society...and we are reaping the fruits of that bullying and deception in every aspect of our lives now.

    As I say elsewhere, it is the fundamental wellspring of all our ills. Along with the also false acquisitional greed/need paradigm.

    Wherin we must take from others to have what we need. (when in truth there is plenty for all in a cooperative model vs. the current patriarchal competitive model) That leads to the conquering mentality. These, IMO are the major flaws of our current reality. Both based on male domination.... and all simply because males have bigger muscles.

    An evolutionary level leap is what we need...and what we are on the cusp/balance point of now. Success of OUR ideology swings it one way. Success of their ideology the other.

    Interesting times.

      stone age males were sent to do the bands' warring was because they were the only expendable segment of early societies.  The young women were to be protected at all costs--because once they were gone, so was the future of the tribe.

      As modern people, most of us obviously evolved beyond this point several millennia ago.  In fact, I'd love to see our armed forces able to publicly try and execute Miss Aswad's murderers.  Hell, it'd probably be better for their morale than serving as IUD bait.
