Again, not sure why as a woman you always find it easy to “blame men” for things men did and say women aren’t responsible yet for all the other things men did you feel the right to share in ownership of it. It’s really an easy premise parap; as women you either own everything or don’t. If you own buildings and cars and planes and nations then you own circumcision and violence and war. My issue is not so much with circumcision; my issue is with the regularity with which women excuse all of the things that men (and women) suffer as being caused by men and then turn around and claim ownership of all the other things men presumable did. The same argument is used when discussing “Violence Against Women”; men are victims of violence at far greater rates than women, yet the retort is the same “men commit the violence” which somehow mitigates the fact that the primary victim of violence is men. Because even though you’ll look at cars and planes and nations and civilization itself and say “we” you look at violence and say “men”. It’s why you’ll look at scenes of violence and say “men are horrible” and look at Skyscrapers and be proud. It’s why you’ll look at female circumcision and see it as another example of male violence and female victimization and male circumcision and tell men they are responsible for it. It is not “my fight against my own gender” unless you wish to tell me that I should be able to vote and not you because my gender discovered, fought for, and built this country. The fascinating thing to me is I don’t believe that last sentence AND nor do you. Where we part company is when you pick and choose what parts of society are “humanity” and which parts are “man”. Own it all parap…
