They’re Full of D.S. (Double Standards)

Why is it the rich heir, who has never earned a nickel in his life, who shamelessly holds forth about the virtues of work and thrift?

〰 ⚤ 〰

Why is it the executive, who made it to the top of the corporate ladder through theft, deceit, and back-stabbing, who shrilly lectures others on the importance of ethics, morals and principles in business?

〰 ⚤ 〰

Why is it the married Christian fundamentalist, who screams the loudest about Family Values, virginity, chastity, fidelity, the evils of drugs and homosexuality, and the joys of abstinence, who is most likely to be found in a strip joint with an underage male prostitute and several lines of coke?

Why is The Law Different for a Woman?

Man: I stole some stuff from my employer. Am I responsible for my actions? Lawyer: Of course, you are responsible for your actions! That’s theft.

Man: I left a restaurant without paying for my meal. Am I responsible for my actions? Lawyer: Of course, you are responsible for your actions! That’s also theft.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Man: I stopped my car and harassed and threatened a man standing on the curb. Am I responsible for my actions? Lawyer: Of course, you are responsible for your actions! That’s assault.

Man: I grabbed this guy’s arm as he tried to pass me on the street. Am I responsible for my actions? Lawyer: Of course, you are responsible for your actions! That’s battery.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Man: I blocked a woman on the sidewalk, said something sexually provocative, and when she recoiled, I threatened and harassed her. Am I responsible for my actions?

Lawyer: Of course not! That’s just natural behaviour for a normal healthy guy … the stupid bitch shoulda been grateful to have you notice her!

〰 ⚤ 〰

For a corporation or a man to be victimized means the Law reacts – but victimize a female and the Law is suddenly silent.

Why does the Law change when it’s a woman?

She Was Asking For It

Men accused of sexually harassing women often claim she wanted it.

〰 ⚤ 〰

They picked-up “a vibe” from the woman that it was consensual.

Male intuition discovered?

The Law Changes When It’s a Woman’s Body

Pirating and counterfeiting. Dealing in stolen goods or drugs. Illegal trading in weapons or in biological, chemical or radioactive materials.

〰 ⚤ 〰

In crimes involving a product, BOTH the supplier and the buyer are punished …

UNLESS the product is a woman’s body.

〰 ⚤ 〰

In which case, the Law’s mantra suddenly becomes, “Let the seller beware!”

The majority of prostitution arrests are of women.

Blaming The Victims

David Ramsay, a Canadian judge, used his position to target vulnerable Indigenous girls as young as 12 who had appeared before him. He would pick them up in his car to abuse them sexually and physically.

〰 ⚤ 〰

He would drive out of town and dump them naked in the bush, leaving them to walk home.

〰 ⚤ 〰

At sentencing, he complained his career had been ruined by the petty complaints of prostitutes.

Like most convicted Johns, he had a bad case of whore moans.

David William Ramsay (1943–2008) was a Canadian lawyer and judge notorious for being sent to prison for sexual assault on minors, some of whom appeared before him in court.

No Responsibility …

Men boldly demand the right to shape their own destiny …

… while too often claiming they cannot control their mouths, hands, eyes, pricks, or lust.

What luck … destiny without responsibility!

Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Feminist Hero

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September 18th – an enormous loss, and she will be mourned globally.

Justice Ginsburg was a fearless feminist and has made monumental contributions to the feminism movement–and its fight against gender-based discrimination.

Ginsburg was known for her scholarly, balanced opinions and personal courage.  She spent her entire career working to eliminate gender-based stereotyping in legislation and regulations.

To honor her, we’ll share a few of her many accomplishments and contributions to society, and why she was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

School and Early Career

Ginsburg was one of nine women accepted to Harvard Law School (out of a class of 500), where the school’s dean asked the female students to explain how they could justify taking the place of a man in his school.

Despite her impressive credentials at graduation, including making Law Review and graduating at the top of her class, she had difficulty finding a job in the male-dominated legal profession.

Early in her career, she was a law professor, becoming the first woman to earn tenure at Columbia University School of Law.

She worked on an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) case involving the discrimination against women ultimately helping strike down a state law that favored men over women as estate administrators. This marked the first time the Supreme Court struck down a law because of gender-based discrimination. (Reed v Reed)

In 1972, Ginsburg co-founded the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union.

She was soon their general council, launching a series of gender discrimination cases, winning five of six cases brought before the Supreme Court.

Her approach was cautious and strategic, favoring incrementalism – dismantling sexist laws and policies one-by-one, as opposed to the risk of losing by asking the Supreme Court to outlaw all discriminatory rules at once.

US Supreme Court

She was the second woman ever confirmed to the US Supreme Court.

During her 27 years on that bench, she quickly emerged as a fearless champion of progressive causes, serving as a counterbalance to the court, which in recent years slanted in favor of conservative justices.

Her dissents were forceful, but Ginsburg didn’t shy away from criticizing the opinions of her colleagues.

Her life was the subject of the excellent 2018 film, On the Basis of Sex. One review stated that the movie “is nowhere near as groundbreaking as its real-life subject, but her extraordinary life makes a solid case for itself as an inspirational, well-acted biopic.”

Ms. Ginsburg was an amazing trailblazer who will be remembered for generations to come as someone who changed the world for the better, who fought for equality and fairness, who left a glorious mark upon America which can never be erased.

Her spirit is captured in her words: Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.

Enjoying One Small Victory

BREAKING NEWS!
Charges have been dropped against an Uzbek woman who beat up two men (30 and 33), who verbally and physically harassed her in the street.

Gulsanam Alijonova, 23, who has trained in the martial arts, had been charged with hooliganism for refusing to accept being abused.

〰 ⚤ 〰

However, the community, bloggers and public figures rallied behind her saying she should be rewarded for standing-up to her harassers.

Saida Mirziyoyeva, the President’s eldest daughter, condemned the move to prosecute, comparing it with the tolerant attitude the law shows towards men who engage in domestic violence against women.

〰 ⚤ 〰

By contrast, no charges were laid against the men who initiated the event by using violence, threats, foul language, and insulting her appearance. They were not even questioned by the police, let alone asked to apologize.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Thus, globally, it is still the case that if a woman defends herself she is at risk of being criminally charged. But, if she cannot protect herself, then she has no legal recourse for the abuse done to her.

In the streets, men are empowered by the Law to engage in abuse, which if done in the home, at work, or in a business setting would be an offense.

〰 ⚤ 〰

But let us enjoy this one small victory before rallying to make street harassment illegal!

Onwards, my sisters!
