Quote# 89944

And, of course, women’s “equality” cannot meaningfully exist in an egalitarian society, because the real differences between men and women are too stark. In fact, it takes a great deal of authoritarian coercion to bring women up to the level we find them occupying in the US. From federal agencies to local police forces and courts, hundreds of thousands of people are employed in the business of “equalizing” men and women. One could fairly call it a domestic army.

Women working alongside men? Women being paid the same as men? Women making decisions without men? ZMFG!

The median height and weight of women is less than for men. But height and weight is irrelevant to many jobs; and in cases where it isn't, employers can look at the candidate's actual height and weight, not the median height and weight for his/her gender.

I suspect that the reason behind this guy's ire is that he's grown up thinking that women are inferior, and thus the fact that in the real world, women keep beating him at stuff has him confused, so he has to make up all this "domestic army" to stuff to avoid facing the fact that the reason women do better than him all the time is that he sucks.

Doubting Thomas

I worked in law enforcement with several female officers, and I'd put them up against any of the men any day.

Seriously, all these "wimmin's place is in the kitchen" assholes can go fuck themselves. Pardon my language, but I'm just sick of seeing it.

"Equality" means "the same rights [as men]"

As in the right to be free, the right to have control over your body, the right to be paid the same for the same work, the right to speak your mind without state interference, the right to have a job as much as the market can provide for it, the right to have a voice heard in the decision making process (I don't even think that one is law anywhere) and so on and so forth.

The tradition of you suppressing somebody isn't a right, it's a long standing crime against reason. Human rights don't function in common law methodologies.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I'm with Filin De Blanc.

In order to have an egalitarian society, you need equality.

10/7/2012 8:38:09 AM

Oh My Dog!

Awwww, has poor little you been frightened by the big bad meanie feminists yet again?

You're awfully whiny and insecure for a "superior" male, aren't you?

Do I smell envy?

"In fact, it takes a great deal of authoritarian coercion to bring women up to the level we find them occupying in the US."

No, it doesn't. It involves the transfer of "authoritarian coercion" from forbidding women to do things to protecting their right to do things. There is no net change of "authoritarian coercion."

10/7/2012 9:10:05 AM


Hmmmm. I guess you could call boot camp authoritarian coercion. However, from the military to federal agencies to local police forces and courts, nobody made us women sign up.

10/7/2012 9:47:58 AM


You don't know many women do you Price?

10/7/2012 9:48:11 AM


Dear imaginary Jesus, save me from the imaginary women!

Thinking Allowed

Women are in the military too, so I guess you're correct.

But what is glaringly obvious is that even after untold generations of human forebears, W.F.Price still has difficulty making the grade and is struggling badly. I wouldn't like to be the one to suggest an equality between 'something' and W.F.Price. I hate dissing 'somethings'.

Efforts to counteract, in some small way, the authoritarian coercion that is patriarchy is called "authoritarian coercion".
The old reactionary tactic: Whatever you're doing, accuse your opponents of doing it.
When they call you out on something you're doing, accuse them of doing it.

asserting, resulting from, or characterized by belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, economic, or social life.

a person who adheres to egalitarian beliefs.

1880–85; alteration of equalitarian with French égal replacing equal.

I'd like to try bringing you up from the level of utter slime to, say, fly-encrusted pile of waste. I imagine it will take a good deal of "authoritarian coercion."

Hilariously silly stuff.

If we're going to keep quoting The Peterhead, we really need a Sexists Say the Darnedest Things.

Farpadokly, the term you're looking for is DARVO.
