In Response To: ABSOLUTE POWER IS BLACK POSITIVE MEDIAINFORMATION *LINK* (Pianke Nubiyang)
Pianke greetings. i have been looking forward to reasoning with you. But it is too bad that I feel you have overlooked my post and not tied it in to spiritual, natural or contemporary reality.
Does it really seem that I am promoting women over/versus men?
Please single out one statement of mine that you feel is distorted or false and discuss your contrasting opinions. I would like to clear up any misunderstandings.
Because as it stands, you have simply made a political grandstand that is totally irrelevant to my statements. I think the title alone caused your outburst. I am not calling you misogynistic but my goodness, was my post that way off point.
Let me start with the title: ABSOLUTE POWER IN THE FEMALE'S HANDS...well yes, maybe you and I cannot remember it but we spent 9 months in a womb. No father/male needed at that time. Please dispute that. I am not looking for "Well the father this...well the man that...we know about that. This is a patriarchal system. But we must raise our wombmen high in order for us to be raised and for our children to be raised higher.
You premise is correct however, only if you were barking up the right tree. My post is divisive?!?! See, why does highighting or bigging up one thing automatically mean downing something else?
Again, women have been downpressed...dark-skinned people have been downpressed...but as soon as there is praising either, it is REVERSE colorism or REVERSE sexism. (more playing cards: jokers)
I think your response is a result of not following my words, seeing "absolute power and female" and reacting/rejecting emotionally and prejudicial. Please read again, if you would.
I look forward to your response.
