Are you a woman who is silenced when you raise your voice against social injustice? Are you intimidated as someone who is into too much gender politics? Have you ever felt that justice was denied to you, or in some cases, delayed, because you were a woman? React to this situation. perhaps we shoudl form a general opinion on how to deal with this issue, without really attcking the opposite gender unnecessarily.

As much as we try to fight it the worlds is still very much a man's world. Women might be allowed into more places but have a differeing opinion to the world at large very often you are belittled or intimated for it and they do it by attacking your gender. "Only a woman would come up with that," is something I have heard many times and found it very condensending. I've seen situations where things are not balance for a women. In my own county one judge in divorces will give the men the children over the women especially if the woman is already dating. His reasoning he states is that a single mother should not be dating, it's a bad influence on the kids, but a single father can, it's healthy for them. Double standards do still exist. We can try and get them equal but it hasn't happened yet.

Oh I have never been silenced, if I have a passion on any subject nothing can silence me.
