Reverse Sexism

December 25, 1987

After centuries of abuse, physical and emotional, being denied equal education and opportunity, treated as chattel, (and still so, in some countries, with the condonement of the patriarchal rule), even here women still have to resort to the courts for equitable treatment, hesitate to walk down the streets in most communities due to fear of male assault or crime, and Farrell and others have the audacity to whine about some harmless ribbing?

I am not saying that I condone reverse sexism; most women don't. But at least women are turning to self-help books and organizations to improve themselves and relationships with men and in turn it seems, for the most part, girlie and sports magazines top the list in the male's intellectual pursuits.
