New "Report" Puts America in Top 10 Worst Countries for Women. Um... How About NO?!
During my first pot of coffee sipping, my bro Brodigan sent me a simple email. Here's that email:
The U.S. is now ranked among the 10 nations considered to be the most dangerous for women, experts say: cbsn.ws/2KnHlu7
You know when you're texting with a friend, and you type "LOL" but you're not even smiling? Of course, you do. Well, I actually laughed aloud. America among the most "dangerous" nations for women, as stated by "experts" was too good a premise to pass up on this fine Tuesday. Especially in light of my past weekend of solo travel, carried out in perfect safety, stopped by no one, harassed by no one, paid for by no one except me. Not paid for by my father, brother, boyfriend, husband. Not a withdrawal from a dowry. No goats were sold in exchange for my freedom. Because women in American can do pretty much whatever the hell they want. That's how America works.
But according to gender "experts," America ranks number ten in the world's crappiest countries for ladies. Thanks to #MeToo:
The United States has been ranked for the first time among the 10 nations deemed to be the most dangerous for women by experts in the field. A survey by the Thomson Reuters Foundation of about 550 experts in women's issues around the globe labelled the U.S. the 10th most dangerous nation in terms of the risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.
Pause. Sexual violence is terrible. Sexual harassment is bad, but let's not pretend it's rape. "Being coerced into sex" is hardly the same as being sold into sex slavery, more like "I was drunk and made a whoopsie with some guy who I'd never screw sober with the lights on." Or else suffering from serious psychological damage in need of psychiatric attention. But coercion hardly ranks up there with genital mutilation as prescribed by Sharia.
The foundation said the U.S. placement on the dubious list was down largely to the #and Time's Up campaigns increasing awareness of sexual violence and intimidation of women in the U.S. in the wake of the criminal allegations against movie mogul .
In other words, had Harvey Weinstein been Henry Windsor, the United Kingdom would've ranked tenth, not the United States. Because it sounds like America's placement on this listicle was largely due to a raised vocal awareness that some men are pigs and some women play the victim.
Yes, both. Many of the cases in the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are legitimate accounts of sexual assault and/or harassment. Hard stop. But plenty of the cases are nothing but puffed up excuses for ugly feminists to signal their desirability by saying "He touched my butt without asking first." Or "Yeah I slept with him, but I didn't like it."
Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey are all rapey perverts who deserve to be banished from modern society. And, for the most part, have been banned from modern society. Meaning the United States as a whole, as a society, once learning of their rapey, perverted ways, didn't tolerate said rapey, perverted ways. Which indicates the United States does not tolerate such abhorrent behavior from even its most powerful men. Except for Bill Clinton. He somehow got a pass. Ask the Democrats about that one. They're the ones who claim to be champions for women's rights.
Let's compare America to the number one crappiest country for the ladies, India:
The survey noted that Indian government data shows reported crimes against women were up 83 percent between 2007 and 2016. During that year, there were an average of four rapes reported every hour in India.
That's one rape every fifteen minutes, for those of you who were publicly educated.
India has seen a series of horrific attacks on women in recent years, the most recent example being five female activists working to raise awareness of human trafficking who were gang-raped at gunpoint in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand just last week.
Quite a bit worse than being wolf-whistled at while hitting the crosswalk button three times. You may not like it when dudes in lifted trucks honk their horns at you, but a guy trying to get your attention while driving is much different than a man putting a gun to your head as he has his way with you. Followed by Dupreet and Sanjay having their ways with you.
Most of the other countries in the top-10 determined by the foundation's survey are countries with ongoing military conflicts or insurgencies, or where long-held religious and political views have kept women on an unequal footing in terms of law enforcement and treatment in society generally.
Which makes sense, because many countries on the list (full list below) are, as Trump would say, shitholes.
5. Saudi Arabia
7. Democratic Republic of Congo
10. United States
This listicle is why you should never type while feminist. If you're curious, as I was, about these "experts" you're fresh out of luck. CBS News doesn't say who these "experts" are, just insists they're experts, repeating it as often as I've repeated the #MeToo movement was largely met with society's support, with society hoping sexual predators are punished for their actions. Disproving feminists' belief in a rape culture.
Also, when news broke the Supreme Court upheld Trump's "travel ban," leftists lost what was left of their addled minds. They called the ruling Islamophobic, citing the Muslim-majority countries which made the list. So, following those rules, isn't the listicle above rather Islamophobic? Isn't the Thomson Reuters Foundation admitting heavily Muslim nations are terrible for women? Based on the rules of leftism, where Islam is conflated with a race, isn't the listicle also racist?
Another point which was noticeably absent from this bias dumpster fire. Actor Terry Crews recently spoke to Congress about his, and many other men's, sexual assault and harassment stories. In Hollywood. Which leads me to believe Hollywood's most powerful men (and women) don't just take advantage of women, but men as well. Hollywood is at least equal in its predation.
Since this list included America largely because of #MeToo, doesn't it stand to reason America is also one of the worst places on the planet for men? Based on their own criteria?
Of course not. To the left, women can only be victims of men. To the left, women are powerless to defend themselves. To the same left, women shouldn't be allowed to carry guns to fight against this supposed rape culture they keep trying to make a thing. To the left, the narrative of "women are always helpless, meek little victims" is paramount in order to keep shaming men, and to keep insisting women are weak and in desperate need of a government to protect them.
Putting America in this listicle is stupid. But comparing America's MeToo movement to actual abuse of women in other countries like India or Nigeria, trivializes the abuses of women in countries like India and Nigeria.
So thanks, but I'll keep living in America where I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, pretty much however I want, carrying a gun if I want. If other ladies make victims of themselves, leave me, and other freedom-loving ladies, out of it.
