Response to: Perspective?

You criticize me for conflating suffrage and slavery with today's situation for women, and then turn around and demand that we must follow the example of a man who lived at a time when suffrage didn't exist, but slavery did. You set the parameters of this discussion, Amy.


What you're saying, then, is that unless we are physically or legally oppressed, we're really not facing the same situation as Mr. Douglass, we shouldn't bitch, 'whine', or get angry. If we do, then we are being the victim.


What you're saying is we should just shut up, and accept things the way they are. Correct?
