That took me two minutes, give or take a few to copypaste into the comment box. RESEARCH IS NOT HARD!
Also, fuck you misogynist prick.

You're completely right. Women belong in the house... and in the senate too.

Welcome to the 21st century, where machines do the bulk of manual labor.
Also, what happened to the forums?
6/30/2012 9:58:15 AM
¿Women didn't wear pants? That's not what I recall, in any sense of the word. As for feminism, it got started in the U.S. in 1848, and as for all those chores you mentioned, they got divided up almost any way you can name.

How in the world did you link 'Malcolm X (A figure from the same time as the civil rights movement) to feminism? (Witch i'm pretty sure was around for some time before)
I believe that 'Malcolm X' also turned a new leaf as time went on as-well. Did someone sleep during history class?

As a note, fuck all knows what happened to the forums, if they aren't back online by tomorrow I'll be creating new ones. Again.

You have very different recollections of the Sixties to most people.

Dear Mayor, please research the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution and when it was passed. Women's suffrage movement wasn't exactly feminism as we see it now, but it was a great start.
Oh, yeah, almost forgot: fuck you.
6/30/2012 11:15:14 AM
Ah the good old days. The aristocracy recall when men who farmed the land knew what their place was. You should hurry back to serfdom.
6/30/2012 11:24:28 AM
Women did not even wear pants during his time.
Remeber a past event known as WWII? There is plenty of photographic evidence from that time showing women did wear pants. And worked in factories, handled power tools, wore work shirts, and provided the support which allowed the US to win the war on both fronts.
So Mayor, your kindly invited to shut the hell up!

When people lived on farms and did manual labor, there was no dispute about who chopped down trees to build the houses & boats; or who drew water from the well. It was obvious what a woman's place was then, and it should be obvious now.
So the way things were in the past is the way things should be forever in the future? Uh, no. White supremacists would make the argument that things were so much better when blacks worked the land and had no rights, and that therefore that's how things should be today (actually, drop the "would," I'm sure I've seen that exact argument on RSTDT) . I'm sure Mayor would disagree, but why is the white supremacist's reasoning any less valid than yours?

Shit, between this and 'The World According to Bob' we'll need to add another forum, 'Misogynists Say The Darndest Things'.
6/30/2012 12:30:33 PM
Yes, women chopped down trees and fetched water. They didn't just stand in the kitchen, cooking. If you had a grandmother and didn't hatch from an egg, ask her.
6/30/2012 12:30:40 PM
I'll take 'Did Not Do the Research' for $400, Alex.
6/30/2012 12:40:10 PM
So every single female on earth did not where one single pair of pants from may 19, 1925 to February 21 1965. not one, ever. EVER.
the stupidity just burns me
6/30/2012 12:48:10 PM
um, woman have been drawing water from wells, lakes, rivers, and ponds forever. Woman have chopped trees and firewood, built boats , cut off chicken heads and all that stuff forever.
Please go and learn some history.
also women wore pants in the 1960s.
6/30/2012 12:50:35 PM
Okay, you go build a house and I'll continue to climb the corporate ladder... seeing as there are no wells around to draw water from.
6/30/2012 1:30:22 PM
Yes, a woman's place is, will always be and always has been, wherever she can make herself useful.
6/30/2012 1:34:09 PM
"When people lived on farms and did manual labor, there was no dispute about who chopped down trees to build the houses & boats; or who drew water from the well. It was obvious what a woman's place was then, and it should be obvious now. "
And if she dared to venture out of line she was beaten back into it, hence why feminism took hold and grew, because women are human beings too and treating them like slaves is not what they want.
sorry fundie, I'd rather my wife love me because she does, not submit to me because I'll beat the hell out of her till she does

checkmateWomen did not even wear pants during his time.
Ok, well, except for the First Lady, of course.
6/30/2012 1:34:56 PM
I think this doofus is saying that women are responsible for the whole "Make Love Not War/Nonviolence" mindset (which is ridiculous) & that real men solve problems with violence (which is also ridiculous).
I think this guy may actually be a "Black Power" type rather than a White Supremacist. Other than that, your comment is fine.
6/30/2012 1:37:09 PM
Oh My Dog!
Yet another alternate universe is discovered!
Surely the Multiverse must be more than a mere hypothesis since the misogynists and fundies keep going on about realities not known to this universe.
6/30/2012 1:40:10 PM
It should be obvious that you're a backwards thinking fuckstick who probably has never and hopefully will never have sex.
