    There will always be men who feel threatened by strong, independent women. And there will also always be people who feel that it’s their right to police everyone elses’ lives.

    So, yeah, we’ll always be having this debate.

      Or, you might step back, think about it and realize that it has nothing to do with women at all.

        o.0 People dictating how women should live their lives has nothing to do with women? This I gotta hear. *grabs popcorn*

        Oh really? What does this have to do with if not women? Enlighten me.

    • C Peterson

      I don’t think that’s a given. Although a common theme in human societies, it isn’t universal. I agree with the comment that it has little to do with women. It’s a consequence of our cultural evolution more than our physical, and culture is more flexible.

      I’m sure the “debate” will go on for a long time, but not always.

    And these old, mostly-white men are also really determined to maintain that women can not have access to the kinds of jobs that would allow the women to wear the same kinds of silly big hats as them.

    Xenophanes mocked anthropomorphism about 2500 years ago. And then everything went downhill from there. Still going downhill. So let me know when proverbial cows freeze over, or however that saying goes.

  • Nicole Introvert

    People are still attempting to debate this in the secular community. Why wouldn’t they be debating it in the silly hat wearing community?

    I find it utterly amazing that, in an era when we know so much about physiology, neurology, genetics and our relationships to all other life, that some people are still having trouble accepting that women are human beings just like men and that having an outie instead of an innie between your legs has nothing to do with human worth, capabilities, autonomy, or any other rights.

    Or are we really still just chimps with less body hair?

    These these old, mostly-white men are all self identified spokesmen of god, the baby jesus and the ghost thing, no one picked them, they’ve decided they’re a wee bit more special than the rest of us and bingo! Funny hat and red booties supplied. How do deluded old men get themselves into a position that gives them power over anyone is one question, the other should be why are there people that need this sort of fraud to lead their lives by?

    So the struggle for women’s equality began just a hundred years ago? Do they teach nothing of the history that came before that at Louisianna State University? A hundred years? Total ingratitude for people who struggled for thousands of years. Total lack of understanding about how many people and generations and cultures made the last hundred years even possible. Just one name for you to look up, Mr. Shepherd, though hundreds more are possible — Hildegard Von Bingen.
