Neil, you are so transparent so don't PLAY me. You ARE a man. You think like a man, speak like a man and have responded like a man---a man who doesn't like to be contradicted. You immediately launch into "I could have reported you" twaddle, which smacks of a bit of a threat. Do not tell me what I can post. Do not give me your "superior" attitude.I don't see what the relevance of this is to the topic of this thread, but I will remark on some of the things you've stated:
How do you know that I'm a man? What if I'm actually a woman with the online persona of a man? I'm not a woman with the online persona of a man, I am a man. Anyways, you're engaging in an ad hom attack; you're being sexist against me, which is a violation of forum rules in various ways.
Clara - I've never resorted to reporting you for something like this before, nor do I even feel inclined to resort to anything like that; I'm not even going to ask you to retract it or apologize, but I do feel like saying that I thought you were at least a little better than that. Come on.
I'm not "'splaining" women, I'm "'splaining" the Left.
I'm going to speak for women---all women--cuz I'm a woman. - You don't speak for women because you're a woman anymore than I speak for men because I'm a man, or I speak for humans because I'm a human, or you speak for humans because you're a human. You speak for yourself as an individual, I speak for myself as an individual, and that applies to everyone else regarless of whether they're a man or a woman.
I'm libertarian, and as a libertarian I'm a strong believer and proponent of equal rights for all adults of sound mind, regardless of traits such as sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, height, weight, pulse (other than having one - being alive), left handed - right handed, blind, deaf, paraplegic, quadriplegic, etc. I also believe, as a libertarian, in a free market system & free society, meaning a person should be free to do whatever they want to (provided they're not committing a crime that has victims), such as go to college (or trade school, etc.) to study or learn whatever they want, start a business, have a career of their choice, live where they want to, own whatever they want to own, not own or pay for what they don't want, regardless of whether they're a man or woman.
Women should be free to "evolve" or not "evolve" if they please, but by describing conservative women who don't conform to the rules that the Left or Democrats want to impose on them as not evolving implies that they're somehow inferior. I find the opposite to be true; conservative women are superior to Democrat & Leftist women; they're also more intelligent, more mature, and they're not wild-eyed angry crazies.
Democratic women SPEAK FOR ALL women, whether they want to be liberated or not. - Wow, what an amazingly bat guano ridiculous thing to say. I know very strong & very independent libertarian women who would probably laugh their asses off as such an absurd statement, if such a notion didn't really piss them off.
I don't recognize any Democratic women to SPEAK FOR ANY women other than themselves. I'm not going to recognize Democratic women to speak for my mother; I'm only going to recognize my mother to speak for herself; same with my sister, nieces, aunts, or frankly any other woman who isn't a Democratic woman.
Democratic men DO NOT speak for me because I'm a man, nor would I ever let them. The Democratic notion of "liberation" is Orwellian, just like many other Democratic notions & it's just as easy for someone to say that Republican women SPEAK FOR ALL women, whether they want to be liberated or not.
At least this last portion has relevance to this thread's topic:
I can just as easily make this assertion:
The RIGHT does NOT attack women. The RIGHT attacks stupidity, injustice, racism, bigotry, misogyny, liars and immoral, unethical behavior, no matter WHAT gender exhibits it.
This is a discussion site. I posted my opinion based on my experiences. Most DTT folks have no trouble figuring that out. Apparently, you do.
As far as your Libertarian status? Your political sway doesn't surprise me. There's a reason why there's not ONE SINGLE LIbertarian country on this planet. See if you can figure out why. Google it.
This is a joke: The RIGHT does NOT attack women. The RIGHT attacks stupidity, injustice, racism, bigotry, misogyny, liars and immoral, unethical behavior, no matter WHAT gender exhibits it.
The Right does not attack women???? After an entire WEEK of RW attacks on FOUR congresswomen, you post that? That makes you a liar...just like your president.
AND here's another piece of advice about women that you are clueless about: The Power of the Pack--women support other women. Why? Because historically we have HAD to protect each other. Are you surprised? Women network. Most of us network daily-- problem-solving together, healing together--providing a support system for each other. Even if we disagree politically. WE recognize our commonality and we WORK for each other. WE find our "SQUAD" (yes--like the congresswomen) and we TAP IT. There's a sisterhood out there. AND you'll never understand it.
