  1. I completely agree that there are double standards in society. I remember seeing a video not too long ago where a woman was beating up a guy (as part of a social experiment) and everyone just stood and laughed. Yet when they switched roles back everyone was appalled at the man and tried to intervene. If there is supposed to be a fight for equality then it needs to be just that, EQUAL. There was a quote which seems appropriate here, “Women’s rights is about equality, not privilege.”

    Now, let me set the record straight, I have nothing against women’s rights but I don’t think it should be used as an excuse to display hate to men and get what you want. It should be about mutual respect, understanding and caring to one another. If either side acts in the wrong, they should suffer the consequences – no matter what their gender or any other characteristics are. Sorry for my little rant but I just had to let you know I understand and agree with you.

    Great posts by the way, keep up the hard work and I look forward to seeing more from you 😀
