Aye, it's double-edged sword. I'm just saying one edge is sharper than the other.
And it's not a point-scoring contest to see who can be the most oppressed. People don't want to be oppressed.
That's exactly the kind of attitude I was talking about. Either side claiming each side is worse effected, when it's not a battle between the two.
The groups that are effected the most are not individual genders, but groups within genders. The different groups are affected completely differently. To take the virgin/slut issue, it's not each gender than are effected, but individuals within each gender. A man who enjoys sleeping around (and can), is not likely to be that affected by the expectations for him to do so. Likewise, a woman who enjoys celibacy or monogamy is unlikely to be affected by expectations placed on her. It is the individuals which are feel the force, not the entire gender.
With the door fee issue, there is mot to take into consideration than just monetary expenses. Some women may take issue with it because it represents a large issue of the way women are seen. Likewise, for (straight) men (or lesbians), the free entry generally means more women in the club. So different people take the issue in different lights.
By ridiculing those who criticize it by stating that it's worse for you, so they have no right to complain, you are effectively saying that because you see it in one light, they are not allowed to see it in another.
