Because you said it was a point I made already so I'm asking you to prove that claim. We both know you understand just how annoying it is when you think people are twisting your words.
Drifter: So can you provide the broader, more objective historical context of gender relations? I never said men have an inherent tendency to abuse women. I just pointed out the patterns with how men treated women throughout history,
regardless of class. I trust the men in my life who have proven they wouldn't hurt me. But I also have men in my family who actually have hurt other women I love, who I steer well clear of. Just becase I know I can trust my father and brother, doesnt mean I trust men as a whole, which I don't. I dont trst women as a whole either but I'm infinitely less terrified that they'll physically hurt me and even if they did, I have a better chance of defending myself. It's just common sense to be weary of men, especially as a woman. Sorry if that's offensive but that's hardly the fault of women.
Me: You kept affirming that women(in a general sense) have suffered abuse and mistreatment at the hands of men and that this reality largely defines the history between both genders.
It makes no sense to come to conclusion other than men are abusive toward women by nature. Even patterns are based off of tendencies. Thats basically what your own findings reveal. Men are abusive to women by nature.
Drifter: It does largely define the relationship between the two genders.
You haven't been able to prove otherwise.
Its captured in everything from religion to law to art. That's the Genesis 3:16 curse at play -men dominating and brutalizing women. That is what I personally believe. The relationship between men and women has been largely painful and the happy successful ones are the exception.
Me : You are right when you say scores of women have been mistreated, but to say that defines womens history is utterly dishonest and to teach that to women is dispicable.
Drifter: You think I want to believe that as a women?
Do you have any idea how disheartening it is to read about that crap? Ok so provide a rebuttal.
Show me what the true history between men and women is.
Wasnt even that hard, honestly.....
