I came across a video on Youtube the today of a US talk show where 5 high profile women sat about joking about a man who had his penis cut off by his psycho wife, the reason for this attack? He wanted a divorce!
We are now living in a age were the unequal standards have shifted in the woman's favor. Women can now be sexist and get away with it, much like minorities can be racist and get away with it. These are big arguments for not only different days, but also different blogs.
I usually don't have an opinion on subjects like this, but it absolutely sickens me that the topic of male genital mutilation (The video says castration, which is technically false as that refers to the testes, and even this term would be used in a purely medically scenario. What is being discussed here is nothing short of amputation or "Penectomy" - NSFW) is taken to be entertainment on a day time talk show. If there was a story on a man who drugged and cut up his wife can you guess the media reaction to that? There would be outcry!
As it stands right now there are no laws in Ireland (Where i'm from) to say a woman can rape a man. What kind of unbalance is that?
A woman's logic "I want to be treated equally!" You'll hear "Don't beat me because I'm a woman"
