You couldn't be anymore correct if you tried to.

Ever since my subconscious self woke up to these subtle indoctrinations of male superiority, I make great effort never to use those word or phrases in any situation. Sometimes I fail because I'm as much a victim of the society as anyone.

But I know That's how children are raised to think that anything feminine is subpar and then girls grow up with low self esteem which then affects their performances....but I digress. Not because they have actually done any research that proves feminity is inferior.

Feeble minded people tend to believe that male superiority is a divine order whereas it just a result of centuries of subtle indoctrination.

Nice read! Why did you stop at just english language?

Take for instance in french language..
An office(le bureau) is described as masculin " he" while a kitchen(la cuisine) is a "she ".

A knife(le couteau ) is a he while fork and spoon (a she).

A sitting room (le salon) a 'he' while bedroom (la chambre ) à 'she'

You go fear language Na.

Buttocks and breast (la fesse cheesy ) a. ....while heart is a .... ( fill in the blank).

A lion(le lion ) is a .... while a frog (une grenouille ) is a ..... grin.

Women Don suffer.
That's why we the femenists are pushing to terminate other languages first then focus on English language to eradicate all these manist stupid terms . cool

About that 'why are you driving like a woman?' question which is common in nigeria.
Research has actually shown that women drivers have way less road accidents than men.

Why they keep insisting on denigrating womanhood at any given opportunity, I still can't understand.

Now let's talk about genitaliaa.
Having balls (scrotum) is supposedly a sign of strength. It's all too common for someone to ask "do you have the balls to do this or that?''

However even a 10 year old child learns very quickly how fragile those sacs and their contents are. Smh. Don't even look at them too hard or they hurt.

A pusssy (vvagina) that is supposedly weak, takes a pounding and is still like nothing happened to it. That same pussy bring forth a human being into the world and goes back to work unbothered.

Hmm says a lot about what the real problem is doesn't it?

Men cause 6.1 million accidents per
year and women cause 4.4 million
per year
105.7 million women and 104.3
million men have drivers licenses


On average, men drive 16,550 miles
and women drive 10,142 miles per
year
So men account for roughly 1.73^12
miles driven per year, while women
drive a combined total of 1.07^12 miles
per year.


That means men drive about 30 percent
more miles than women. Yet, they’re
implicated in slightly less than 30
percent of car accidents. Men do cause
more accidents, but they are actually
less at-risk than women, by a small
margin.


Please women especially cococandy when you wanna explain something,please do with prove,or explain with a point ah..

When women beging to drive more miles and take more risk on driving as statistics have showed above then the reverse it will be...

So when they say in nigeria ''why u drivin like a woman'' blame nobody coz it well clear and stated at the above why he or she should be quoted like that...grin

Re: Is Language The Greatest Foe Of Feminism? by Acidosis(m): 8:25am On Jul 27, 2017
Why should the words "driving like a woman" be an issue when we've equally seen a "person fighting like a woman"?

I will support feminism the day women wrestlers fight their male counterparts like Randy Orton, Hulk Hogan, Ray Mysterio, etc.

Women should stop creating problems for themselves. A woman is supposed to be tender and gentle, not roaring like a demon online clamouring for equality with another gender when, in fact, her roles to herself family and the society have been left unattended to. A woman will forever drive differently from certain men, men are generally risk takers, and that's why we see more men in car race and other related sports.

Feminism has a lot of foes. From religion to culture... down to the people who consider zee world watching men as "humans suffering from a bizarre case of mental transvetism"
Re: Is Language The Greatest Foe Of Feminism? by armyofone(m): 7:43pm On Jul 27, 2017
Same thing here... I just laughed and slept off after reading grin na me Dark rebel wan rope in grin
When you have a mother and a sister and possibly will get a wife, why won't you do what will benefit them? I just don't understand the whole feminism stuff so I just stay in the ROM.
anyway my question is for number c.

c.) _Cock-sucker: This term is also used to refer to a weak and subservient person.. It is also commonly used by men on fellow men. The idea is this, when a woman fellates a guy she usually drops to her knees, a postural gesture that seems at one glance like the woman is completely surrendered to the man, worshipping him with her saliva and an energetic bobbing of the head. Therefore, when a man calls a fellow man a "cöck-sücker", he is in fact implying that the said man has gone down on his knees and sucked a cöck (a woman's job), albeit in a metaphorical sense, rendering him subservient, weak, and unfit to be called a man.
I wonder though, why the word “pussy-eater” is not in the index of swear words. Could it be because eating pussy is not as subservient a task as sucking a cöck?


So when a good guy/husband is giving you fellat, he also bobble his head in and out, in and out...what do we call that ?

If I ran a blog, would you accord me leeway to blog about your beautiful dimple(s)? I mean, who would have thought that having a pothole on one's cheeks could become a thing of profound intrigue. grin

Thanks, anyway. I would surely put all you've said into consideration.
