As far as shaving, makeup, plastic surgery, wearing high heels or sneakers, skirts, pants, dresses, etc, it is women who have the choice to to do so or not, men are prohibited by society's rules( put into place by women) from doing such things.
As someone with scars on the back of my feet from all the crappy high-heeled shoes designed by gay men I've had to wear to various social functions through out my life, let me just get out my tiny violin for the poor, oppressed men who are forced to live their lives without ever feeling the pressure to wear heels.
You know what else is funny? In America, it's actually legal for an employer to fire a woman for not wearing make-up. Oh, but you're the ones with all the restrictions on what you can wear - I forgot. Men are the sex-class. XDDDD

Not allowed to wear pants? O.o

Okay... I can see an ignorant man saying this... but how could any woman
with a few functioning neurons believe all that?
That said, the thread title is stupid. 'Minority' doesn't mean 'second-class group', and there are slightly more women than men in the US.
By the way, this snipped out one of the most WTF lines:
Women control over 60% of our nations wealth.

In other news, freedom is slavery!

That's just.....that's just insane. \"Males have extreme limitations on what jobs they can have.\" What the hell? The only jobs a man is prohibited from having are female prostitute (and they can have that one, too, with a bit of major surgery) or biological birth-mother. Everything else is pretty much wide open.
Women are in control of our government? OK, I suppose that's why we've never had a woman president or even a truly significant number of women in congress.
I'm looking around for the marching band and the streamers because this is the one-millionth ceremonial time I've had to shake off something this stupid! (With apologies to Dr. Cox.)

What color is the sky on your planet?

It's testosterone's fault. It gives us heart attacks, makes us go bald, encourages us act like jackasses trying to impress women and shortens our lives by 5 to 7 years.
Still, it's still better to be a guy: we don't have to shave anything below our necks, we only need two pairs of shoes, we can buy our underwear in three-packs for $10 at the supermarket and we can urinate almost anywhere.
10/31/2006 1:42:50 AM
Before I make a contribution I would also like to know what color the sky is on her planet.

I do not know how to respond to this.
I simply do not know.

Everything he says is a load for crap apart from the last bit.
omen do generally live longer than men, and the Inheritance thig...im not sure, but i don't think i haveheard of a woman coming off worse in a divorce settlement.
(thats just me, i could be wrong)
And that thing about Women having the major sway in childerens lives...A boy without a true strong father figure is in definetly in detriment than one who does. Mothers tend to focus on care; and fathers more towards dicipline.
neither can a child live without

The funny thing is that this was written by a woman.
10/31/2006 2:32:06 AM
That's right! No man of mine will wear pants and sneakers...

Alternate Bizzarro Universe Award, definately
10/31/2006 2:37:14 AM
Egads, if that's true, imagine how fucked up the place would be if it was run by men without women to moderate things.
Women control over 60% of our nations wealth.
I'm sorry, what Nation's this?
10/31/2006 2:43:59 AM
I was going to go through and refute every single daft point in this fundie's post, but it's so self-evidently wrong that I don't need to bother.
What a moron. I wonder how they'd cope in New Zealand, where until recently, women held every single position of power? The US in comparison looks like a bunch of sexist dolts from the 1700s. It just amazes me how even many progressive Americans do not believe a woman could currently be elected to the Presidency. If that is the case, that is a really fucking sad commentary on the US.

I second the nomination for Alternate Bizarro Universe Award.
10/31/2006 3:12:36 AM
Women outnumber men, and therefore it is women who have effective control over our government, our laws, our courts, our leaders, etc.
So all that time in the south during slavery, it was really the white plantation owners who were enslaved?

I would also like to inquire as to the colour of her sky.

Ummmmmmmm starting your post with \"um\"'s does not a good post make. Also, the number of women in the world is irrelevent to who holds control of our government. AS to the \"women instill their (cough evil) morals in the children\", you realize how many children don't listen to their mothers? And those who do actually know that mother knows best.
Yeah, women can shave, put on makeup, etc... but men can do them also. They'll just be called fags or drag queens by other males and females.
Men DON'T have extreme limitations to jobs, because (I'd say that) they have the wider job range, truly because they can take just about any job- they just have to risk the name calling and dangerous assumptions by homophobes. Same can go for women, and because women worry more about how others view them, they are less likely to take certain jobs, wear certain clothes, etc.
And just to clarify- I need citations for your \"facts\".

Alternate Bizarro Universe nomination n+1thed. This level of stupefying idiocy is simply incredible.
\"Ummmmm, I believe it is the males who have been the (oppressed) minority group for at least the past 100 years.
Women outnumber men, and therefore it is women who have effective control over our government, our laws, our courts, our leaders, etc.\"
Women didn't even get the vote in the U.S. until about 80 years ago, and had to clamor for years to get it. Prior to this, their only effective weapon of \"control\" was nagging; and since men could usually beat their wives with impunity if they wished, this was seldom all that useful a tactic.
\"Secondly, for the past 100 years, it is women who have the most control in raising our children, and therefore it is women who instill the values and in controllng our society and its customs and beliefs.
Little boys and little girls are taught to be who they are, taught to think like they do ----by women.\"
Until the 1950s or thereabouts, most U.S. families were HEAVILY dominated by the husband/father; if the \"little woman\" didn't toe the line and see that the kids did the same, the results often could be severely unpleasant. It was the aftermath of World War II when things started to change, after finally giving large numbers of women a taste of real self-actualization during the war. The degree of male domination has tapered off very slowly to where it now can be close to call, in my opinion; certainly women still do not dominate generally, but I'm sure the power level is often a lot closer to equal than it used to be. But even if power is shared 50-50, I'll bet you that the man is listed as \"head of household\" on the tax forms of 90% of families.
\"As far as shaving, makeup, plastic surgery, wearing high heels or sneakers, skirts, pants, dresses, etc, it is women who have the choice to to do so or not, men are prohibited by society's rules( put into place by women) from doing such things.
Males have extreme limitations on what jobs they can have, what they can wear, and what their appearance can be by the rules women have set down in our society. Women can do any job, and wear anything she wants to wear.\"
Men are hardly limited in the sense of jobs they can have! Surrogate mother and wet nurse are about the only things they can't be! Seriously, what profession is denied to men that is not denied to women? I know of none. Conversely, women have enormous difficulty getting into many professions as well as getting certain kinds of jobs within those professions (and equal treatment within them). How many front-line-capable women do we have in the military, and how many men? How many women senators have we had -- or presidents?
The fashion comment is more or less true, in the broad sense; however, women still face higher expectations of fashion and appearance in most work environments where this is applicable, and their hairstyling and dry-cleaning bills are at least double what men's tend to be.
\"Women control over 60% of our nations wealth.
Women also live longer than men and inherit everything.\"
Statistically, this is more often true than not, but not by a huge margin; and when you say \"control\" of wealth, you DO realize that you're talking about household budgets, right? Certainly not government or corporate budgets! Women are shamefully UNDERrepresented in government positions, executive and managerial positions, and most professions; teaching and nursing are about the only ones in which they might have numbers in their favor. And they typically earn at least 10% less than men do at the same jobs. So if they eventually inherit a little extra something, I'd say they've more than earned the tip.
