There is no free speech on du

By the nature of this website, we block right wing and republican opinions

so when you make a free speech/anti-censorship argument to defend sexism and homophobia, you are being highly specious.

Unless you are actually advocating that we open up this website to all opinions, then you support censorship on du.

So please don't insult my intelligence with this extremely specious argument.

Thank you.

There are many men on DU who are supportive of women's rights

who acknowledge that the experience of being a woman differs from being a man in society.

Most men do not live under constant threats of potential sexual violence. Most men don't live under stereotype threats of under-performance in significantly important domains, such as math and science. Most men don't worry that they are being paid less for equal work. Most men don't worry that they won't be promoted, because women are still considered poor fits for upper management. Most men don't experience sticky floor and glass ceilings.

But most men have important women in the lives (wife, daughter, mother etc.) and a lot of men believe in egalitarianism, most human beings are capable of empathy and for that I think most men don't diminish the importance of feminism, women's rights and discussions on how to get to a more egalitarian and fair society.

And for this, despite individual men who have mocked these issues as unimportant, I want to thank most men on DU, who do not diminish the importance of these issues to women.

so thank you guys especially if you consider yourself a feminist and thank you if you support feminism and thank you for taking our lives seriously.

also a huge thanks to President Obama, for this quote "I ran for President to put the same rights, the same opportunities, and the same dreams within reach for our daughters and sons alike"
