That is the statement from a recent opinion piece on the NBC News website by Marcie Bianco.
Bianco adds this.
Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women. Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don’t need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression.
I can't believe I missed the "societal domination" thing after all these years on earth as a man.
I thought that men embraced heterosexuality as it was the natural order of things. It is also why men love women. It is why for thousands of years men have protected women, married them and had children with them.
Heterosexuality is the bedrock of global oppression?
I thought heterosexuality was the bedrock of human civilization. After all, if heterosexuality goes how long will it be before civilization ceases?
I give it about one generation.
By the way, if men are maintaining societal domination over women in the United States they are doing a really terrible job of it.
Women live longer than men.
Almost 60% of the students in college today are women.
Boys account for 70% of the D's and F's given at schools in the United States.
Women now make almost half of the middle management jobs in America.
There are more women than men enrolled in medical school today.
There are more women that men enrolled in law schools today.
73% of management positions in Human Resources (who manage hiring, compensation, benefits and training) for American companies are women.
Young men are twice as likely to live with their parents as young women of the same age are.
Males are incarcerated in prisons at a rate over 10 times that of females.
When you look at the stats, while some women might not want men around for heterosexual reasons, you would think they would want men around for the simple fact that women look so much better in comparison to men.
