    How can a guy know if a woman might withdraw sexual consent after the fact?

    Favorite Answer:

    I man can't know if a woman will later regret having sex and will later claim her consent wasn't valid.  While this happens in the real world, it is most common at colleges as you mentioned.

    1.  Until this is changed, college men should not have sex with women at their own institution.

    2.  More men who are accused of sexual assault due to consent being withdrawn after the fact, need to hire lawyers and fight such cases, rather than just accept their fate.  Only by colleges getting sued will this unreasonable practice get changed.

    3.  Just as women have #MeToo, men need to start publicly calling out women who consent to sex, but later claim it was sexual assault.   The problem now is women are rewarded for this immoral behavior.

    What are some examples of systematic or institutional sexism in the U.S.?

    Favorite Answer:

    "What are some examples of systematic or institutional sexism in the U.S.?"

    Systematic or Institutionalized sexism, otherwise known as legal discrimination, or state sanctioned discrimination, only occurs against men today in the US (and pretty much all Western nations). In the US, we have the selective service military obligation where all men must register or face legal restrictions on their Rights and benefits. Women are exempt from this entirely. Men also face affirmative action whereas women do not. There are many taxpayer funded "women's only" programs that are denied to men just because they are men. There is also restrictive wording against access for men in VAWA and Title IX. This is just a quick list.

    Institutionalized sexism against women was dealt with pretty much entirely by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Only the spotty toplesness laws that vary by state can be considered legal discrimination against women. For actual equality, it is time to give men the same protections against systemic sexism here as is afforded women. Equal Rights AND equal Responsibilities should be the mantra now.

    Why is the male gender always doing mass shootings?

    You hardly ever see women doing mass shootings. Mentally ill or angry women talk to people about their feelings. Men are backwards

    Why is there a glass ceiling in the U.S.?

    Favorite Answer:

    They are allowed.  It's  just that most either don't want it, or don't legitimately make it to the top, just like most men don't.

    Jordan Peterson explains it very well.  Those high powered, driven people (mostly men) who compete  like crazy to keep other men out of the top positions aren't just gone to suddenly roll over because feminist suddenly expect women to take their positions.  It doesn't work that way.  But when women are treated equally harshly to men by the top men, feminists have the gall to call that "sexist" rather than equality.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eieVE-xFXuostarts at 3:20

    Does the fact that old/ugly/modestly dressed women get raped prove that all rapes are exclusively about power and not sexual attraction?

    Favorite Answer:

    No, not all. Crimes can have a number of different motivations.

    My girlfriend gets pissed off by "sexist" jokes, is this normal?

    My girlfriend will read something she considers sexist or offensive - even a joke that simply references periods - and she'll be pissed off for the rest of the day. I try to talk to her about it and she'll say such things as "It's not ******* funny," and bitching about how sick she is of "all the **** that women take on a daily basis."

    How mad are feminists that the innocence project has exonerated so many men wrongly convicted of rape...?

    Favorite Answer:

    "How mad are feminists that the innocence project has exonerated so many men wrongly convicted of rape...?"

    It's certainly doubtful that they're happy about that.  Prominent feminist are so gynocentric on this issue that they would rather have men go to prison for false rape allegations than to have any false rape accuser have to bear any responsibility for her criminal actions.  They are on the public record saying this exact thing;

    "Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience."

    -Catherine Comins

    "If anyone is prosecuted for filing a false report, then victims of real attacks will be less likely to report them."

    -David Angier

    False rape allegations are way more common that we'd all like to believe.

    Are feminists proud of their speakers at womens marches?

    If a man who murdered a woman spoke at a ‘Men’s March,’ it’d be national news.

    “There was a speaker at the women’s march on Washington named Donna Hylton. She got up on stage and talked about how she had spent 25 years in prison (not mentioning why of course), and the audience cheered.Turns out, she spent 25 years in prison because in 1985, she and a handful of other people kidnapped a 60-year-old man, tried to ransom him for $435,000, tortured him for three weeks (Hylton personally sodomized him with a metal rod), strangled him, and stuffed his body into a chest to decompose.I can’t help but wonder how a man with an equivalent record would be received at the same event.”Brief article about how feminists see men and the heroes they applaud that speak at Womens marches. Is this another proud moment for feminists?

    When will all bathrooms be gender neutral to accommodate those of us that are gender fluid such as myself?

    Favorite Answer:

    I believe society needs to think of the majority rather then the minority. I feel safer as a woman knowing women’s toilets are for natural born women only.

    So what do you think about the NCAA threatening states that enact bills that ban biological males to compete in women's sports?

    Apparently Rick Scott isn't going to tolerate it and has return with a warning of his own. It's about time the government stands up to this behavior by liberal corporations and other woke leftists organizations that think they can push states around.

    I'm ashamed to be a man?

    I feel ashamed to be a man. I feel like women only see men as "pigs" nowadays because they think all men want is sex (which isn't true. Atleast for me). Yes as a male I crave sex sometimes but that is not ALL I want. I do not go around looking at women as pieces of meat but rather as people. I feel like women are superior for this reason. Do most women actually think this or is it just in the media - all in my head? 

    I feel bad for how women are treated disrespectfully by some men. This adds to the shame I feel. Sorry for you women out there, I wish I could help you. Do any other men feel this way sometimes?
