So what do you want from me exactly?
To show some sense. You are talking stories. Unless you want to illustrate with something more than some Wiki that such practises are not only common in Cambodia but do have blessing of the authorities, both religious and lay and are embodied in law. Otherwise I'm afraid what you are doing is talking porkies and you what me to take it seriously. Think again.
I have an impression
Your feminine intuition is not good. I don't care who I'm talking to. I'm focusing on consistency and quality of your arguments. I say it now and again but seems to me that no one is taking it seriously, you should. I don't care if you're a man or a woman, black or white, gay or normal.
If your logic and quality of your argument is high I'll respect it and if it not I will tell you that you suck, no need to look for nefarious or ulterior motives. It is that simple.
Chinese society has traditionally valued boys over girls.
So what? The law says (at least until recently) that a couple not in rural are is allowed to have only a one child. What people are doing and all that abuse doesn't make women into second class citizens. BC the state doesn't force people to do what they do.
Furthermore what it has to do with anything - another random example. Why don't you get to the point? Mods are getting antsy.
Right about what, Iron?
Right about you not being very intelligent. Maybe it is a question of experience and with your limited experience you just don't get it.
That if real men
I'm not going to translate for gregy who has his problems and meltdowns. I'm surprised that you're not familiar with that phrase - real men - means acting decisively, boldly, get to the chase, solving problems without too much hassle and redundant chatter and chaos.
Do you think that if men with such Taliban-like mentality would rule in the West
Implementing laws without prejudice - that is what he had in mind most likely. That there is no sacred cows, or protected minorities or other crap that leftie progressives introduced to destroy fundaments of the western civilisation.
He just don't get it that all this is an effect of the evil leftie ideology that is brainwashing people and transforming them in a watery brainless goo. Easy to manipulate.
This animosity (or victimhood) between men and women - fault of the neo-Marxist BS including feminism.
There is no reason for men and women go against each other - quite the contrary there is every reason for both sexes to cooperate and support each other.
Lefties persuade women that they are exploited, are worse off than men and that this all is the fault of some imaginary shadowy patriarchy.
Those women who fall for that are pushing back in the most stupid and counterproductive way - trying to become men in a sense. Introducing laws and regulations that actually are not fair and oppressive to-men
That create resentment and volá the class war between sexes is an expected result of the progressive meddling. Who is the winner - some evil lefties who are after power and who in the normal healthy society would never rise above a gutter where crooked and perverted individuals dwell, together with their unsavoury evil ideas.Please avoid excessive quoting
