Impossible Thing To Believe Before Breakfast #6:
It is absolutely necessary for women to be allowed to join or participate fully in any gathering place for men, just as it is absolutely necessary that there be women only environments from which men are excluded.
I've decided to do one of these a week: Wednesday! I'll leave it up to Tim W if he wants to keep "Impossible Things" commentaries from other people going after that.
#6 - I think virtually ALL (i.e. 95% or better) men and women are fine with men meeting with men and women meeting with women absent the other gender; sports clubs exclusively for men and sports clubs exclusively for women, etc. -- and take it as a given that INDIVIDUALS are the ones best suited to choose their personal circumstances for themselves.
I really think feminists are the only people who have a problem with it because of their misandry mind-set. They infer that the only reason men would want to be together without women being there is because any meeting that doesn't INCLUDE women is directed AGAINST women. Another instance of the most aggressive women intimidating normal women.
Definitely up until 1970, it was taken as a given that you would have sewing bees for women, lodge meetings for men, etc. etc. Everyone would have found it inconceivable that it could be considered an issue. Husbands and wives need the time away from each other and time with others of their own gender.
I think the only explanation for thinking otherwise is misandry and paranoia.
