And how is it that any of that needed to be said in response to this article? Did you read it for the sole purpose of pontificating at the end rather than actually trying to understand or empathize with the author? That is MY point!

The fact that you have no idea what you are babbling about is tertiary. A culture that has that level of violence against women does have a systemic problem. A society where until 50 years ago women were prohibited by law from being full citizens and could be raped by their husbands with impugnity is a patriarchy — ipso facto. You saying that isn’t so in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary which I provided doesn’t prove anything other than your misguided state of mind.
