    Because....biology!

    Doubt about a child's parentage is skewed across the male/female divide. There is no Maury show called, "YOU ARE THE MOTHER!"

    Thus, fatherfucker as an effective insult, must first prove that the child does have an identified biological father and that the individual identified, is indeed, their biological father. Too much work!

    Go with the given. Motherfucker!

    It's funny how insults change. It used to be that calling someone a bastard was seen as a very bad thing to call someone. I think if someone called me a bastard now, I'd laugh at them. I certainly wouldn't shoot an arrow at them.

    By the way, I know for a fact that my maternal grandmother was a bastard. I see no reason to be ashamed of that fact.

    I don't hear many people saying "son of a bitch" any more either...

    Women are people. Can we stop thinking of them as inherently different in their desires as men? Women want what every human wants.

    An opportunity to prove their abilities and exercise their personal freedoms to live and be happy.

    Men can surely relate to this.

    Are their biological and physical differences? Yes. Does that pose a threat to men and their happiness and abilities? It shouldn't. Nor should men pose a threat to women.

    If you want equality stop asking for it and assume it as a given. Women in America are at a point where we can do this. There is power in confidence. Time to own it.

    Feminism is needed still but let's pick our battles.

    Men if you feel you have been treated unfairly by the system that "favors" women remember that while injustice is never right, it may not be because of any grand conspiracy against your gender.

    It's easy for any psychopath or narcisist to tweak the system to their benefit because they don't play by the same rules. Keep that in mind.

    If you think you're dealing with one of these and the cops or justice system is buying into their lies? Then welcome to equality. (I'm not saying that with any attitude or sarcasm).

    Women have had to fight the same system against cops who wouldn't listen or help either with psychos in their lives and we had NO recourse. At least, you have the opportunity to fight it (as anyone should) Just like women now have.

    Just because a battle is uphill doesn't mean someone destroyed your means of climbing it. No one took your rights away. So let's keep some perspective.

    Are there a lot of cases with cops being incompetent or negligent when it comes to domestic abuse, rape or sexual assault?

    Exactly. This is what I have done throughout my life, and may explain why I have had such satisfactory results. As I mentioned elsewhere, you have to play to win.

    I think things are improving, but it was this way for generations. First of all, marital rape was considered an oxymoron, since a husband was always entitled to the "services" of his wife. Also, women were encouraged to forgive, take the man back, even try to be a better wife. Then there's the victim blaming: turning a sexual assault report into an investigation of the victim - what was she wearing? how was she acting? why was she in that place at that time? what is her sexual history? And this covers only those cases where the woman actually made a report to police. In many cases she did not, whether to avoid stigma, avoid the misplaced focus on her own life, or (in a marriage) to preserve what might have been the only material support for herself and her children.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    How do you think we can correct this?

    Obviously you are not familiar with the Lifetime network.

    I'm joking. But yes. Lots.

    Victim blaming, you mean rational thinking? do you really think a women who was raped at the time was blamed for the attack? do you really not think out of sheer logic that someone who is scandalously dressed walking home at night should be more cautious and aware of their actions? let me guess you believe in the "teach men not to rape" slogans feminists shout about. It's too bad rapists already know that rape is wrong much like murderers know that murder is wrong there is going to be messed up people in this world regardless and that is why these questions are asked. No is one is blaming the victim but it's stupid to think that you shouldn't be taking certain precautions and responsibilities towards yourself.
