We don't want to know, but we need to know about this. Knowledge is power and educating ourselves on this horrible issue is the place to start.

In this day and age women are being ignored, put into the back of the bus, humiliated, raped, mutilated, and killed without any punishment, even when done against the laws of the land.

We have again become second-class citizens in America, quickly losing the ground we have gained. Males have decided they don't like giving away their power to "inferior" people and are now taking it back, piece by piece, right by right, law by law. Abuse is getting rampant across the world, but especially in the free world countries, like the good old USA. Bimbos like Palin and Bachmann are leading the way, traitors to their own sex.

And "they" say there is no war on women. I beg to differ. There is a war against women everywhere on this planet.

wow gg this really hit a sore spot and it should. people come here and bring their cultures with them. it is slowly beoming more and more public. this is a terrible thing. it is like taking the little piece of skin at the end of the penis. these woman become just machine breeders. i don't know if it is against the law here. i should but i don't but there is still the culture hurdle that i fear we will not get over. it brings tears to my eyes. woman are the power behind their men.

If any American even suspects that this is a possibility with anyone they know, they must report it, immediately.
