    Just to add to the Sexism debate.
    Would like to point out to those who support Palestinian Autonomy just how women are treated in their present states known as the West bank and Gaza
    The stoning of women to death for perceived adultery is carried out with government approval and does happen on a daily basis
    This stoning is a crime in Israel.
    And yet we continually see those leftie liberals condemn Israel for its actions in trying to civilize the Muslim misogynists who treat women like chattels.

    Honor Killings are carried out in up to 20 Islamic states with Government approval.
    And yet we never see demonstrators on our western streets condemning such actions
    The Western leftie culturally sensitive types have been brainwashed into submission by the international press.
    There have been many cases of the enslavement of women in western society by Islamic adherents but not a word of condemnation by the western liberal.
    Who in reality i believe actually support the enslavement and stoning of women .

    monaisle,This has nothing to do with  perceiving its the fault of leftie liberals anymore than neoliberal righties whatever each of them are .You are broadening the discussion This is The Everyday Sexism thread  not confined surely alone  to Muslim countries anti Islam  or Maori or  cultural practices in multicultural New Zealand.

    So Dr L. You have made an excuse for everyone to carry on with sexual misconduct by denying its existence in so many communities.
    So i assume from your post that it is only Whites who abuse women and everyone else is allowed free reign to carry on as normal.
    Obviously you approve of honour killings as your lack of condemnation confirms approval.

    So monaisle,No excuses from me! I started the everyday sexism thread to highlight domestic abuse of women as I have a daughter who was raped and assaulted over a period of years  and I wanted to  get discussion opinions  going on the role of  everyday sexism regardless of any one  race or creed  As to honor killings I have not even thought about such matters a separate issue methinks.. Have we not  a   Human Rights Thread  or similar for your  concerns?

    Everyday Sexism is a Human rights issue and those cultures and religions where it is prevalent should be exposed to the world and shamed
    Do you not agree

    Getting opinions has never stopped any criminal activity .
    Only exposure and action will get answers
    The reason why nothing changes in the Middle east and Africa is because of western cultural sensitivity .
    three women were stoned in Turkey this year alone and not one was reported in the western media.
    But when Donald Trump makes a ridiculous tweet the world knows all about it instantly.
    Proves the point that something is seriously wrong with western values and our media.

    There seems to be still some posters who are unable to present a valid argument on this topic without claiming the “troll”  seemingly because there is no argument against the truth. It seems from the news that it is only N.Z. Australia and USA that has a problem with sexism. Is this because English is not the language  in  many European, Asian and Arabic  Countries, or maybe sexism is not a problem in this Global area. I agree that we do have a problem in N.Z. with violence and sexism in Gods own. We can blame drugs and booze and gambling as well as lack of respect for self in both sexes. Even women are guilty of violence and sexism and sadism. What is the answer, when even children are victims in this criminal behavior . Both sexes are liberated by free sex with anyone  offering it appears. The domination of some males over their family was his prerogative for centuries and they have yet to come to terms that females are equal in all things apart from physical strength and many males deserve the full extent of the law , preferably from a unbiased Judge.

    Only those of the simplest minds and lowest intelligence will like the school bully try to overpower any discussion with expletives such as racism or troll.
    These people are totally incapable of rational discussion and are usually mentally corralled by some belief or culture.
