Subject: RE: Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge
"To tell women that they must conform to oppression and acquiesce to lack of control over their own bodies because it is some god's will (and suits some men) is a negation of a basic human right of over 50% of the human race."

Agreed Diane, but why the wee man hating bit in brackets? This what I mean when I say emotive language doesn't solve anything it only entrenches viewpoints.
It also suits some women, but that doesn't get mentioned very often, so it's best to be non sexist, then no unnecessary resentment is caused.
