Very interesting oberservation.
What about Erotica?
Literature or art intended to arouse sexual desire.
I said this before but I'll say it again
women are most subjugated in societies that have the least sex and sensuality from the media." Think of the middle East, Central Asia and Africa.
I also would say many of these societies are far more violent than ours.
You nailed it, sister. (No pun or innuendo intended)
The cultures of which you speak keep their women subjugated in ways that would shock and horrify even the most puritanical American fundamentalist. I'm talking about chattel slavery, ritual mutilation of reproductive organs, and casual butchery of any woman who dares to stand up for what we consider their basic human rights.
Also, note that when men from those cultures find themselves in the West, they think they can rape Western women with impunity, justifying their acts by saying that the victims were dressed like "whores" and deserved what they got.
(Having seen first hand the trauma a rape causes a woman, I'd gladly volunteer to personally execute the rapist, if given the opportunity.)
I'm honestly surprised at the positive response to my initial post on this thread. From the posts prior to my own, I was expecting to be flamed by the Fundie Crusade authoritarians who seem to have nearly taken over my beloved FR lately.
