Almost every single brick in every single building you have ever occupied was put there by a man. Almost every single inch of road you ever traveled on was put there by a man. Almost every single watt of electricity you have ever used was produced and carried by a system, almost every inch of which, was put there by a man. Almost every single drop of water that comes out of your tap was filtered by a complex system build by a man, and carried through pipes in the ground that were put there by a man. Almost every single gadget you ever used, and almost every single line of code written for that gadget, was created by a man. Almost every single bullet fired (or suffered) to protect our safety and freedom was fired (or suffered) by a man. Almost every dangerous and dirty job that serves the society you enjoy, from mining to deep sea welding to garbage collection to oil drilling to electrical line power installation to construction to logging is done by men. Almost every single piece of modern technology that gives you your comfortable life was designed, build and then distributed to you by men.I’m not telling you to bow down and kiss our asses or anything like that, or that we’re your superiors, or that women have nothing to contribute. I am asking you to recognize that we take care of a lot of the worst shit for you.You need to stop pretending that every man in the modern world is out there oppressing and raping you. Take that bullshit where it belongs – over to Muslim countries and other assorted 3rd world backward hellholes where women actually don’t have equal rights, where they aren’t given every opportunity like you have here in the Western world. Go “take a stand” that is actually brave.
