I think you have a misconception of what a woman goes through after coming forward to report a rape. I am not sure having a pissing contest over which has it worse is really the point of this conversation.
I find this comment extremely funny. I understand your statement, but things were never a pissing contest until you mentioned things may turn into a pissing contest. You turned it into one. (The funny part being it was a pissing contest consisting of: Don't make it a pissing contest. But we are not. Yes you are. We are not.
Like some over blown comedy scene from the movie Clue. "Are not!" "Are to!") I don't think any one was thinking guys have it worse, just that it is a bit tougher for guys to manage in certain areas. And this is true. It's not to say girls don't have it tougher in other areas. The only person making things a competition is you, since you say "Don't make it a competition." And then procede to talk about what women have to go through in rape immediately after saying: I qoate: Don't make it a competition. On a thread mind you, talking about how this all effects men, not women.
I get girls get it bad to, but is it really so wrong to talk about the guys for a change? We get a lot of crap to you know.
Honestly, I find it funny how easy it is for people to get flustered at the very idea of talking about mens issues. Let alone acknowledging they have any at all. Is it just far easyer to believe in the narrative that all men have it 100 percent great and are oppressing women?
To be honest it just seems you were unintentionally trying to say girls have it worse, and are disguising the fact you are saying that by saying everyone else is saying guys have it worse. So now the conversation is about everyone questioning if they said guys have it worse, all a while you got to point out things girls go through while simultaneously ignoring guys do to. Every one was so caught up with trying not to be sexist, that even you failed to notice you were the one competing over whom had it worse.
Andy: I like that mencia reference. It was a good analogy. Not to say women are weak, but they are generalized as the frailer of the sexes.
Actually, I am reminded of a certain One Piece character. So I want to make a quote myself now. I forget her name but she basically said: I steal, kill, torture, humiliate and much much more. And still people persist to forgive me, look past my faults, ignore that they are even there. Why? Because I am beautiful.
Or something along those lines. Correct me if I am wrong. Any way, I only quote it because I think there may be a statement there worth noting. Not to make any kind of generalizations or accusations. Just that there may be something there worth analyzing.
