My girlfriend and I just finished watching the BBC series “Human Planet.” Really good watch. Would be PETA’s worst nightmare.
Anyway, there was a dominant theme throughout the entire series: Men, often on a daily basis, risking their lives for their families back home. Over various cultures, you see men walking on tightropes across raging rivers, stealing food from lions, digging tunnels under the desert to funnel water from underground streams, climbing mountains to steal baby eagles to train them to hunt…all for the same thing:
Their families back home.
I saw nothing but love and dedication from these men. So my question to the radical feminists is this: Where is the Patriarchy in this? If there’s some sort of…system that oppresses women across all cultures, where is it here? I mean, one guy climbed a tree 15 stories tall, with no safety harness. Just…vines. He did it to get honey from a bees nest for his wife. They don’t NEED honey. But he did it.
So where is the oppression? Seriously?
