    How about the enemy population in wartime, different races & cultures, etc, all the easier to look upon them with contempt, hatred, fear or indifference.

    How about even animals? Easy to ignore suffering, inflict cruelty and slaughter when they are objects.

    •  I'm not suggesting women are unique in this (3+ / 0-)

      You said the air was singing / it's calling you, you don't believe / These things you've never seen / Never heard, never dreamed.
