Re: “Teens Will Be Tried as Adults in Richmond Rape Case

As a mother of five children - four daughters and a son - I can tell you that girls simply have no choice at all of cultivating a sexual side to themselves. No choice at all. I resisted this choice with all my heart as a young girl, from the days at 12 when it became impossible for me to go to the movie theatre, even with friends, any longer, because boys my own age and up insisted on aggressing on me, putting their hands on me, and generally treating me like a toy. My daughters have resisted becoming too sexual also - and have been pressured, mistreated, and insulted the same as I was. I could never blame any female, girl or woman, for giving in to the gross mistreatment and insults leveled at any and all females who resist allowing boys and men to insist that being female means being sexual, and sexually available.

Otherwise, I agree with the above comments. I agree that boys and men show disrespect for just about everyone. Yet I think at the bottom is the disrespect toward women, not the other way around. I also agree women dress and think too sexually and too much like slaves. Yet where I disagree, as I described, is that any of this is the fault of women. Women are pressured unbearably to be sexual. The problem the world has is - what to do with men. Freud asked the question - what do women want? I've long said there is a simple answer to that. They want freedom. The real question is - what do men want? And I think there is an equally simple answer - they want to play dominance-submission games. That is what they would do if in their own society without women. That is what males do. That is what nature intended for them to do. Nature intended for women to raise and nurture children, and eventually design civilization. Nature unfortunately did not include males in this plan. What can 'we' meaning - women - do about this? I have no ready answers but I do know that men are simply behaving like men when they bully and dominate.
