The world is all about sexism. (Pessimistic view im having today)
To feel the wind tearing at my clothes, the elements.

The only truth left in a world of lies and hypocrisy.

The beauty of the abyss.

The anticipation, like anticipating the greatest sex, an existential foreplay.

Looking down into oblivion and voidness.

The ground far, far away as it seems from here, but in reality only a couple of seconds away.

Standing there.

Feeling eternity in a restricted world.

Feeling a decision in a prefabricated existence.

I think that they are pretty much equal. Women may even have an advantage in some situations.

It's true that men have advantage over situations but in some ways women have taken advantage of all things men havent taken yet. Women can still run for president, but the question is why havent any of them tried b4? Theyve argued for years about not being able to run for president but why havent they tried running. Sorry for going off topic, but please forgive me.:P

Think real.. If they run for president, its not very likely they will win.

I honestly think that women sometimes have it easier in the world, because of all the backlash that resulted from it being a 'male dominated' world. Look at Title IX (Equality for Women in Sports) Yes, women are getting equality in sports, at the expense of men's sports. Sorry ladies, but it seems to me that a bunch of angry feminists are bitching about 'the male oppression', and getting their way, and trodding all over men to do what they have to do to get 'equality'.

Me from Taiwan

Sexism is definately a problem though I havent really faced it myself.

There is a bit of sexism at home and society 'cause many older generations still want male children (grandchildren) so then their name could be passed on... as a Chinese and many of the world's tradition I guess. Some ppl that i know... well, just an example... My aunt was under my grandmother's pressure of producing a male child... thats sexism... and a friend of me told me that her mother wishes her to be a guy instead of a girl (though its already too late)... And one of my relatives, they have a boy and a girl and the boy's getting more attention than the girl.

Media? I dont think so, theres stereotypes but I dont think theyre too bad.

Yup. That's what you just said. But I think they meant We're all 'equal' meaning we have the same fundamental rights, but that there will always be sexism because we are well, different genders, and different biological differences that will seperate us as people, and that person doesn't know what to make of that or how the situation can be rectified or if the situation should be rectified.
