I hear a lot of outrage from folks like my dear friend Uppity Woman at here site, but nothing more than crickets almost every else. This is one area that us hardcore Christian conservatives and “feminists” should come together on. Women should not be subjected to this crap anywhere…..period. It is this Hillbilly’s opinion that dudes that women as chattel, ain’t real men; they are nothing more than degenerate pieces of crap. No offense to Crap!
God made us all; men and women. We are different, but equal. If I own a business, I am hiring the most qualified person who can do the job, and make me money…..regardless of their plumbing. Same goes for politicians. And just because a woman does not hold my political views, it does not make here stupid, or a bitch. I would never vote for Hillary Clinton, but I respect the heck out of her for making a career for herself.

Updated at 7:48 a.m. ET: CAIRO – Walaa Al Momtaz doesn’t leave her home for up to five days at a time. The neatly veiled 22-year-old misses her friends at City University, where she studies English and German, but what she faces upon leaving her house defeats her.
Men and boys constantly harass and threaten Al Momtaz on the bus, on the street and at the university.
“Every day men talk to me in a bad way, laugh at me and say things about what I am wearing,” she told NBC News. On a recent bus trip, a man stuck his hand through a gap in the seat to touch her.
Al Momtaz has gotten off relatively lightly.
On Nov 25, Al-Ahram state newspaper reported three women were sexually assaulted during anti-Morsi demonstrations by hundreds of men.
