This graphic is making its way around social media today. It clearly demonstrates how misogyny and the patriarchy function in our society and why ‘equality’ is bogus. Women should be grateful and/or appreciative for being treated as full participating members of society? What an absolutely insulting statement!
It is hard to believe that in the year 2012 we are still fighting this battle. What is it going to take for women to be treated as fully competent members of society? This is also insulting to men who recognize women as their equals. Imagine one of us going up to them to say: “I appreciate your effort in respecting me.” What a crap load of shit. Should we also thank them for not raping us at every meeting?
Here is the scoop (in case you have missed it):
- Women are fully equal to men.
- Women have agency over their bodies and lives.
- Women have agency over their reproductive health.
- Women can do anything she wants.
- Unless you have a vagina you have nothing to say about women.
