SMFH, in over 45 years, this really hits it. I’ve heard all of this, and this covers every excuse and conversation on the block. Young women now are less educated and aware of how much they have lost ground than my generation was (thank you, sisters who went before us!) in the early 70s - and it STILL SUKKED then.

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE???), you see so very few wishing to be women! Ask them! “Tell me, if it’s better to be a woman in this country, would you wish to be one?” 99% of the time (and I have been putting this question to men for 30 years) - the answer will be - SURPRISE! - 
NO.
