Forum Post: Men Beating Women. OWS is so Lost in the Big Picture

Look around, fellow humans. There are reports of 1 in 4 women beaten in America. 1 in 5 is raped. Astounding! Pathetic American cowboys. Egypt and the Arab world MUST stop raping and beating and treating women like cattle. Even cattle deserve better. In some countries women can't drive away, or vote a solution. Women are more than half the planet's population yet men, with superior size and a thirst for blood, control our only salvation, women.

Men need to get on their hands and knees and thank women throughout history that we did not make them manual labor slaves while the women remain the thinkers of society. As this world progresses, equality among the sexes shall get better. More women are graduating college, are politically active. Brute force is being replaced by automation, women can choose not to have a child from a rape.

I know the world would be better if women ran it. No question.

We have a soulless culture of domination and exploitation - what do you expect

[-] 0 points by Spankysmojo (849) 2 years ago

Sadly, I've grown to expect the worst.

Sorry. This is NOT a core issue for OWS. What the hell has this to do with corporate greed?

[-] 1 points by BlueRose (1437) 2 years ago

I very much disagree. Mistreatment of women is WHY we have so much corporatocracy. It was a WOMAN who blew the whistle on Enron. It is WOMEN who care about the welfare of people over profit, more so than men. Don't get your boxers in a bunch.

What do most of the posts have to do with corporate greed?

[-] 1 points by OccupyLink (529) 2 years ago

Not a lot, I'm afraid. That thought had crossed my mind also. I guess you have to search for the pearls amongst all the "noise". :)

I started out responding to posts that regarded our financial dilemma. Then I became so engrossed in the hateful spew and couldn't see the protest through the trees. Unfortunately, I think I'm done with this forum. It pains me to acknowledge what I suspected early on and that is without a defined leadership this movement isn't moving. The antisemitic rhetoric, on the other hand, is quite compelling and disgusting. I'm out. I'll be part of the 99% from afar.

I can sympathize with you. As with most forums, it is hard to know the true motivation of posters. Like you, I fight anti-Semitism very hard, as I do anti-Islamic stuff, or any other such persecution. There is little point in disagreeing with hateful posters, other than to get them to address OWS issues - stick to the point. I do hope you will stay on. Every now and then, you get a good post that cheers you up, or you learn something. Take care. :)

Thanks. I appreciate your words of encouragement as well as your huge chore to keep this forum clean. Happy Holidays and a better America to us!

[-] 1 points by OccupyLink (529) 2 years ago

Thanks. Happy Holdiays to you also. As I said, I hope you will stay on. :)

In stead of trying to start a war between men and women, why not promote co-operation? sounds trollish to me.

[-] 1 points by Spankysmojo (849) 2 years ago

All wrong. I was merely pointing out that our country will never run right of we don't treat everyone equally. That's all.

I'm not sure what this author is talking about. In my part of America, you are liable to get your ass kicked for beating a woman.

[-] 1 points by BlueRose (1437) 2 years ago

In America, women vow to "obey" when they get married. That's some BS right there! Even Walmart mgr said women don't get promoted because Biblically men are to be the breadwinners. Go kick some dude's ass for paying a woman 70 cents on the dollar, why don't ya?

Your the reason the divorce rate is 60%

[-] 1 points by Spankysmojo (849) 2 years ago

I'm talking about the most recent statistics from the CDC. They were derived from interviews with American women 1/4 of whom stated that that they were beaten by their husband or their boyfriend. 1/5 said they were raped. Usually by their boy friends. It is public now. You can look it up.

[-] 1 points by Brandon37 (372) 2 years ago

You might be interested to look into the stats of Muslim countries.

[-] 1 points by Spankysmojo (849) 2 years ago

I doubt that they would be that good but... two wrongs? Gotta fix it here first. Gotta raise the kids right.

[-] 1 points by Brandon37 (372) 2 years ago

We are no different or worse than all other places on the globe.

I can't agree. There is a wide range of societies on earth. Places that don't treat women with respect are ass backward. Remember, what does it say about a society if your mother has the same stature as your cow? What does it say when Afghanistan imprisons a woman because she was raped? No, sorry, I can't agree. We have a long way to go but much shorter way than our middle-eastern counterparts.
