It has long been my opinion that one does not discriminate against something that represents no threat to one’s wellbeing …
Part of American greatness, is discrimination. Yes, sir. Inequality, I think, breeds freedom and gives a man opportunity. – Lestor Maddox
There can be no doubt that our Nation has had a long and unfortunate history of sex discrimination. Traditionally, such discrimination was rationalized by an attitude of “romantic paternalism” which, in practical effect, put women, not on a pedestal, but in a cage. - William J. Brennan
Is this discrimination against 50% of the population happening on a daily basis? I think we can all agree that it is. Is that discrimination happening on the basis of feelings of strength and security? I do not think so. Is the trend on all of this ugliness starting to shift? Yes it is, but waaaaaay too slowly. When women collectively realise just how much power and control they truly exert in this world, we will see a dramatic upswing in that trend. At that juncture, it will be so nice to be able to go into a boardroom and not have to discuss rugby, soccer, golf and motorsports.
In the meantime … deep sigh.
