The Gender Agenda

August 09, 1992

Maybe it's time for women to rethink "Lysistrata" and withhold their cash instead of their bodies. I'm well aware that my earnings are funneled into a testosterone-governed system.

As the right to a choice over my reproductive powers dwindles, the amount of my income that goes to Uncle Sam increases. Why should we allow our labors to be exploited for the privilege of maintaining a justice system that fails to protect us from being harassed, mugged and raped?

While guys, as kids, are not taught to take responsibility for the effects of their words and actions, woman are trained to accommodate, compensate and compromise.

My vote supports a tax revolt. The time has come for women to stop paying the dues for the members of the testosterone club.
