Commentaires sur program- english version

  • Salut
    Je trouve dommage qu'en défendant les femmes contre le patriarcat que vous tombiez dans le matriarcat.
    Pour moi, le sexisme ne se combat pas par le sexisme.
    Que penseriez vous de l'orga d'une journée anti sexiste qui interdirait un atelier mécanique aux femmes?
    Chaque individue a les mêmes droit quelque soit son sexe. Chaque individue a droit à sa sexualité dans le respect de l'autre. Ne tombez pas dans le matriarcat ou l'hétérophobie car vous vous placerez au même niveau que les gros beaufs" fachos, sexistes... que vous combattez.
    Luc porteur de bite (car né comme ça) et militant pour l'égalité des sexes (et non pour la domination de l'homme par la femme)
