Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat.

Hillary needs to lay off the crack pipe.  The primary victims of war are those who are killed, injured, or traumatized in battle.  Women, sitting at home worrying, are secondary victims at best.

the thing with me is that I'm not all for all that crud about being oppressed. Some women are always going on about how men get everything and women are treated like sh*t. Not so in most cases. Maybe about 60 years ago, but women are often regarded as smarter and stronger then men in common culture, often times while men are described as mindless slobs. The women are just trying to start a problem (something our sector of the human race is sterotyped for). If, in a specific case a woman is being opressed because of her sex, I'm all for bashing the offendors and taking them to court. But only for a true, validated reason

How about children?

Anyway, ANna said she generally likes jokes about women, but not about men, because they're not funny. Huh? I don't think most jokes about women are any funnier than jokes about men. Everyone, man or woman, occasionally makes a joke about the opposite sex. As long as you don't really believe in the thought behind those jokes, that's ok. Most of the time I find gender jokes pretty stupid and obnoxious. (though I sometimes have fun with male friends with, hurling insulting men/women jokes at each other)

I understand what ANna said about the discrimination of men though. In this western society it's politically incorrect to discriminate women, while men are often discriminated and noone thinks anything about it. Feminists want to be treated equally, they say. Real feminists often see women as superior to men in many ways though. If that's your view, you're no better than man a few decades ago (the type we call chauvinst pigs).

I especially encounter chauvinist cows (let's just call 'em that) among those who are into new age spirituality. Very strange...I'm looking into that. Anybody any idea why?

i dont understand, are you calling me chauvanistic? but you are right in interpreting my perception of discrimination! in regards to men and woman jokes now that i think about it actual jokes i dont find funny but i find it funny how churned up women get about sexist comments men make, which are made purely to churn them up! for the australians here think stan from that miday pannel thing beauty and the beast! or i guess sam newman does it in a way! like he just eggs people on to get more and more annoyed! because i think woman are more drawn to getting annoyed than men do. so in simpleman terms i think sexist jokes are funny when they are said for the reaction not because they believe it! ie my mum got pissed off at my brother because he wasnt "treating her like a human being" then my other brother as a joke said "object 345 get out of the way" do you get me?

The above statement mostly applies towards western cultures.  In the far east and middle east, women are treated more as property than people.

If we were to tier the victims of warfare, I'd certainly put children above adult women.  All I'm really saying is that the idea that those who are killed or traumatized directly through battle are "secondary victims" is such a distorted perception to have.

Yeah, that 's what I was refering to . Now women in, like, the middle east are treated like total crap. they have a right to want to get out of that situation, if they can. But most american women aren't really treated all that different then men, and in some cases are treated better. It can also be a case of age or race discrimination. My dad got fired from his job because he's a old black man and his boss wanted a young white woman in his place.

I'm changing my statement, lol. I've just realised 'humanist' is the wrong term (that would imply that I think everything out for myself and don't leave any trust in God, which I do as I'm Christian!)

So...

I'm partly feminist, mostly humanitarian!

Oh yeah, I gots the statement down, lol.

LOL! Go Jackie! You certainly are a girl with brains.
