Quote from: NejinOniwa on March 12, 2013, 07:08:08 pmIt's fairly obvious if you just look at the english language, too. MALE, fe-MALE. MAN, wo-MAN. Et cetera.
Quote from: Bella on March 12, 2013, 07:03:23 pmOr to use another example - people point out the fact that there are dozens of birth control options for women, while men only get two choices, condoms and sterilization. Again, this is NOT "female privilege". This is because the medical establishment and society have decided that women should be the ones to carry the burden of birth control in relationships - that men should be spared any inconvenience or discomfort associated with contraception. Male privilege at work again.
QuoteYou say male privilege, I say not fair. I would love an option that doesn't break or isn't permanent.
QuoteWhile women get to make all choices regarding the child up until birth, and in most cases even after.
QuoteA guy who makes one mistake gets stuck with a woman who would get pregnant, just for child support and government programs, and don't say that I'm sexist because I've seen it happen, it was my own family.
QuoteWhy, because of the stereo type that a guy can't take care of a kid alone, people will look down on him, and call him a pedo behind his back, because all guys are chauvinist pigs and perverts right?
Quoteno it's always the guys fault. Always.
QuoteWhen raising the kids, forget about teaching right and wrong, BECAUSE NOTHING IS WRONG ANY MORE!
QuoteBeside's the obvious things, but seriously, how long until those get fucked over too.
QuoteThe feeling I get from this world is that it's selfish, that the people don't give a flying fuck about any one else
QuoteEmpathy and chivalry have been fucked over and I'm just honestly waiting for this world to die. For everything to die... This world is painful.

I would love an option that doesn't break or isn't permanent.I'd put it more towards laziness on the part of the reproductive health segment of the medicine. It's easier to disable or control lady parts because no one's really demanded or even seriously looked at medical male birth control before the 1970s, whereas female birth control has been a focus since the 1800s. Part of that you could call a 'male domination' I suppose, but it's more of a supply/demand thing really.
Quote from: stewartsage on March 13, 2013, 10:21:17 amQuoteWhile women get to make all choices regarding the child up until birth, and in most cases even after.Don't know where you get that particular tidbit from. First, it's a sweeping generalization of society. Second, it simply isn't true from a legal or a reality standpoint for most couples. I'd say almost every couple makes decisions related to their unborn child together, even if they aren't in a quote "healthy" relationship for the simple fact that it's kind of hard to have sole control over something like that. Sure, it happens if you have a particularly dominating lady or an uninterested/absent male; but then reverse it where a man dominates the woman with his opinions (See: Every cult ever, many of the "fundamental" religions). Neither is right.
QuoteI didn't realize I'd be brutally scrutinized for it.
QuoteWhere I come from, worst case scenarios are common place.
