  •  All conservative ideologies use rape (9+ / 0-)

    as a control method.  Dominionists are not Christians anymore than Al Qaeda is Islamic.  These are groups run by men who can't compete on a level playing field.  They're inept, their sense of entitlement leads to laziness and rebellion if they're not the top dogs, they're filled with self-pity and resentment about changes in culture that puts genuine demands on them.  Unfortunately they hook up with women with similar issues, cover for their true purpose.

    The death throes of patriarchy are ugly and violent.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      Hatred and repression of women - or of any group - is its own religion.  It merely seeks to use others as its some screen.

        •  It doesnt matter to them who they (0+ / 0-)

          rape, what matters is a brief sense of being powerful.  Rapists are pathetic cowards, the dregs of a macho culture breathing it's last breath.  

          I suspect there'd be some serious action from the top brass if women were grabbing dicks and twisting hard.  Maybe that would call attention to the sickness in that culture.

          It's time for women to push back.  My 21 year old daughter decked a drunk who grabbed her friend's tits.  She's not big or tough, she's smart enough to see someone too impaired to be dangerous.  She also knew there were bouncers close by.  She told me she'd rather take a punch than sit there being helpless.  We need more of that, less fear.

          I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
