So, the democrats tried throughout the last election to convince the votes that republicans are waging a 'war on women'... whatever that might be.  Apparently because republicans tend to loathe abortion (something that kills an awful lot of future women), those mean ol' republicans must be waging war on women.  I'm not sure of the logic behind that but there it is.

Meanwhile, across the pond there is a real 'war' on women and they're having a sale.  If you want a woman of your own, islam has some pretty reasonable prices: 

In response, the group determined specific prices for women and children, while “vowing to execute whoever violates those controls.” This is the worth of a human life, according to ISIS: 

  • A woman, 40 to 50-years-old: 50,000 dinars. ($42.90)
  • A woman, 30 to 40-years-old: 75,000 dinars. ($64.35)
  • A woman, 20 to 30-years-old: 100,000 dinars. ($85.80)
  • A girl, 10 to 20-years-old: 150,000 dinars. ($128.70)
  • A child, 1 to 9-years-old: 200,000 dinars. ($171.60) 

New York PostDaily MailRTInternational Business TimesOpposing Views and Christianity Today are among the few outlets to report on the story.

I'm not actually a conservative but I find it noteworthy that the rags that have chosen to air this atrocity are mainly conservative rags.

That is a falsehood, Tdog.
Do you compete against your wife?  Your children?


The idea of 'war against women', that men's successes come at women's expense is feminist hogwash.

The men and women as competitors is a false paradigm, Tdog, feminist hogwash.  You are talking about day to day activities. 

If the nature of the relationship between you and your wife were adversarial, as you are suggesting... as feminism wants you to believe... then you would simply take what you want, however much of it you want, as often as you want because she simply hasn't got the physical strength or mental aggressiveness that you have.

You're partners, not opponents.  Scaling up to sociology... the success of women in general does not come at the expense of men in general.  We tend not to want or value the same things.

Physical strength or mental aggressiveness? Boy have you been duped, AK. Women have other ways of competing in day to day life to get what they want. Cunning, materialism, passive aggressiveness, manipulation. They are sitting on a million $ ya know.

 Sweet, and yet, I wonder if you're thinking of married men and women, fighting the world around them as a team, as one?

That happens, though not for long for some, given the divorce rate and ugly custody battles, competing for their children.


Or is it that women are no competition, given male privilege?

"Why do women want to lower themselves to be equals with men when they have to step down from the pedestal we put you on?"  An old guy who believed he represented all men, but was in need of a reality check......somehow missed the domestic abuse billboards on his way to coffee with me.

No, I really do believe this idea that men and women are competitors is a falsehood, like saying my heart is a competitor with my lungs.  I think the narrative is attractive because some groups benefit from the portrayal of men and women as adversarial.  There is no 'battle of the sexes', it's a Hollywood and a feminist construct.

That happens, though not for long for some, given the divorce rate and ugly custody battles, competing for their children.
Personal conflicts are a separate issue but the do reflect the reality somewhat... women have the advantage in court.

Or is it that women are no competition, given male privilege?
"Male privilege" isn't a given, it's a fiction.

Over 40% of dv victims are male.  Most child abuse is committed by the mother, not the father.  Women are not saints beyond reproach and treating them as such is a profound disservice, nobody can live up to idolization like that.

 Should have specified the Billboard was put up by the local YWCA, specifically to call attention to abused wives filling their shelter to such an extent that they had to build another.  Hurts everyone, cause they built it on Main Street at taxpayer expense and filled it.  It is so sad to see the children on the donated playground equipment, knowing.......

Too bad they didn't acquire the Motel.....it would have been the right size, and half the cost.  Grant money privatization.


Yes, don't ever count yourself out!    Women and men can use more of that as a mantra.

Living the lives they live, you would be 'severe', too.

On the other hand, I met an Iranian woman at Bullwinkles near Renton, WA., she was there letting her toddler play.  She had the most drop dead magnificent head of hair I've ever seen.

There may be a reason why the creepo muslims make the women cover it up.

Five female security staff at Kandahar airport killed

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-38350470
17 December 2016

The women - who were in charge of searching female travellers - and their minivan driver died when two gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on their bus.

No-one has admitted the attack.

Women in Afghanistan are often targeted by the Taliban, but a spokesman for the Islamist militant group, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, denied that it had any involvement in the shootings.

Ahmadullah Faizi, the airport's director, said the women had been concerned about their security after receiving death threats from people who disapproved of their career.............>

 Dowry is forbidden by India, but the law has become an example of how you cannot legislate good behavior.......so rich brides are often killed in their kitchens alllegedly by accident, once the enormous dowry gifts have been distributed to the groom's family........and he of the better caste, another lingering outlawed cultural tradition, is free to marry into the next wealthy family of status seekers.

It's not a declared war on the precious daughters, but parents who want a better life for them should be wary of the silver tongued devils seeking to marry them.     Really, wouldn't a series of media campaigns have solved both caste and dowry issues better than the legislation?  The good intentions of legislation has led to false claims of dowry abuses, of course, which have like rape cases diminished the pursuit of justice.    Women can't be out after 6pm or they can expect to be raped....paying a dowry can be the death of your daughter.....what a world.

FGM charge for Detroit doctor Jumana Nagarwala in US first

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-39597062
14 April 2017

A doctor in the US city of Detroit has been charged with carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM) on young girls in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in the country.

Prosecutors said Jumana Nagarwala had been performing the practice on girls aged between six and eight for 12 years.

She was investigated after the authorities received a tip-off.

If found guilty, she faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

FGM was made illegal in the US in 1996.............>

The shitty thing is fgm is done by women (usually the mother) on women.

Speaking of the mother, why isn't she being charged?

As you all know, there was a suicide bombing in Manchester, England at the conclusion of a concert given by Ariana Grande, a young pop singer.  We could delve into the motivations of the murderer but... yeah, I really don't care.

Instead, consider the target.  There are large groups of people gathered closely together all the time.  Subways, airports, restaurants, etc.  Concerts such as Ms. Grande's occur routinely.

Ms. Grande's audience, however, is primary young and mostly female according to Slate (not the most unbiased news source, granted)

"The Grande fan demographic also includes a number of older millennial women, gay men, and general lovers of pop music, of course, but her live concerts are largely populated by tween and teenage girls and their moms."


There were a lot of possible targets for mass murder but this cretin chose to attack women.


Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken

Remember when a bible in one's  pocket  saved many a life by preventing a bullet or shrapnel penetrating the heart - now there is an alternative!
