Enter Androcentrism…

It’s been a long time—too long a time.

(c) 2013, Davd

The notion that a man, a real, anatomically complete man with healthy normal human male physiology, should declare himself Feminist, is not merely absurd. It is a form of self-condemnation which has parallels in [...]

The “Women’s Privilege Pledge?”:

Just What Part of Equal Protection Don’t You Understand?

(c) 2013, Davd

“Once upon a time, not so very long ago,” in many kingdoms by the sea, the landlocked Swiss Confederation1 (and after 1790, the Republics of France and the USA), men and women had different “spheres of life”. Women’s [...]

Debunking Mother Nature

–>

(c) 2013, Davd

“Mother Nature” has been personified as such, for much longer than i have been alive. Some would probably contend that the Goddess[es] whose religions are older than even Judaism (making them about twice as old as Christianity—or even older—and perhaps three times [...]

The Princess Syndrome

 

(Why—and how?—to forestall it)
