wellwisher: Is it just women who are irrational, or men too? Are you saying that men are more rational than women? Do you think that, until recently, men and women were on an essentially equal footing, but now women are advantaged over men? Do you think that the feminist movement has had a net negative effect for women? For men? For society in general? Who has the retroactive guilt? Men? What do you think men are feeling guilty about, wellwisher? And is that guilt justified, or not? Also, I'm not clear on what these men are reacting to with cause and effect, under "ordinary" circumstances. Please explain what you mean in the context of rape. Do you think we'll need 100 men, too, or do you think all men are the interchangeable, essentially? It sounds like you think there are some styles of dress that are appropriate for women and some that are not. Tell us, wellwisher. How do you think a woman should dress to best avoid being raped? Is there a best way? Also, what about age? Do you think that perhaps 20 year old women should dress as proper church ladies, disguising themselves as, perhaps, 60 years old, in order to help avoid being raped? Would that be good advice? Or should they dress as nuns, perhaps? Or should we make burqas compulsory? Do you feel that, in general, women go out of their way to manipulate men? Do you think you're on an unfair playing field, wellwisher? Does it upset you? What if it's two male friends instead? What would the difference be? What about two female friends? What about a gay couple (of either gender)? Do you think that, in general, women should be restricted from expressing themselves in certain ways in public, and that this restriction should be different than for men? If so, please explain. Do you think that the "ladies" need to be trained and herded by men, wellwisher? Do you think it's possible that the ladies can work things out for themselves? You know, things like basic social interaction? Or are they just not rational enough? Or just not smart enough, perhaps? I'm not entirely clear on what you're advocating with this post, wellwisher. Are you saying that women shouldn't be surprised if they are raped if they are not a "nice gal"? What should they do to be a "nice gal", wellwisher? What do you suggest?
