On Women's Day

March 8 is Women's Day. Observed and
celebrated by different sectors
throughout the world.

However, many are still not aware the
true essence of this special day.

It is more than creating awareness among
women of their roles and rights. It goes
beyond women's emancipation from unjust
treatment of patriarchal societies.

From the household to work places, women
are given the specific roles. Gradually,
from traditions to more challenging
roles, ...From sex objects to political
decision makers ... from baby sitter to
corporate executives, from wives to
business partners, etc.

Whatever they may be please do not
forget this:

"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is
vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD,
she shall be praised." (Proverbs 31:30).

I would like to wish this day all women, girls - happiness, well-being and success in all undertakings and affairs. And as I have already told do not pay attention to mongrels if this day something will be not so. It is your day, therefore use it on all of hundred percent, distract from work, daily cares and have simply a rest. It is your day and I give it to you!

I have a question to ask: When is world mens day?

I only ask in the spirit of true equality of the sexes. If there is a women's day, its only fair that there is a men's day.

Because positive discrimination doesnt exist, surely.

Try taking your pills.

Did the thought ever cross your mind that KKW people are out there actually making sure girls have a good day (because we care), instead of bitching on a forum in a foreign language?

Fail.

I think it is possible to dare to create a theme where it is possible to communicate in familiar language - and we discussed very important theme for us

I'm sure it's possible, just not on a five year old forum that's never allowed it.

Not another one. I'm changing my title to "Cold Blooded Hater Of Newcomers Who Insist On Posting Shit In Their Own Language", or is that one too long?

just fucking post in English already!

Good question Mr. Liam. But it could be answered if we could understand the beginning of Women's Day.

Women's Day is evolved through the series of consultations, deducations, campaigns and lobbyings.

Women's role is typified and stereotyped to be inferior to men's. In work women are less desirable to be hired due to her role as wife and mother. Women are most likely to take paid leaves and maternity benefits. Discriminated.

Beauty contests are also one of the reasons of Women's Day. Women are exposed, displaying their bodies for unjustified purposes. Sex objects.

Women suffered from being wives with the traditional obligation to make love everytime her husband want to. prepare for meals everything in the the house. Child rearing is misthought to be exclusive for women only. SEx and Domestic Slaves.

Women also suffered physically from brutal and sadist husbands or partners. Verbal abuses are also atorture to women. Domestic violence victims.

All of these are analysed and verified to be correct and experience everywhere.

we united to liberate the women.

Now, how about us? there are battered husbands and partners. some of us are also victims of domestic violence?

Now Liam's question will be answered.

Thank you and to porcelain doll very good.

i want you to learn how to distinguished exploitative exposure vs. art and or purposive display.

my avatar is an art and promotion of quality underwear. not an exploitation of women.

Really? How many women wear just a pair of panties into the ocean? And, if it really is an underwear ad, I hate to tell you, but a lot of people think that women's underwear companies like Victoria's Secret and/or Frederick's of Hollywood are as much to blame for the sexual objectification of women as Hugh Hefner or Larry Flynt, not to mention the body image issues they cause. You rail against women being merely sex objects, and then post a picture of a woman being treated as merely a sex object. Topless, breasts covered with an over the shoulder glance is never going to hang in the Guggenheim.

The only "art" that it would qualify as is of the "pin-up" variety...and even though some would consider it art, it's overtly sexual in nature.

Or possibly a tastefully painted nude. I can see the art in that.

Any ad that relies on a woman's fit body and lack of clothes to sell doesn't sit well with me, though. Especially combined with a "come hither" kind of glance over the shoulder
