"I'm not a misogynist but this Emily Wilding Davison has taken it too far.
Honestly, I can see where these women are coming from - trust me, I really do. I'm the last person who could be called a misogynist because I've got a Mom, sisters, nieces, and even a girlfriend! However, this Emily Wilding Davison and all of these other Suffragette and Suffragists protestors are really appalling. I mean, the way that she threw herself in front of His Majesty's elegant horse at Epsom is just shocking and egregious. What does she hope to achieve? How does that prove that women are "just as equal" as blokes?
I'm all for women's rights but I honestly think that the best thing for women is to stay bound to the manacles of domestic servitude and remain weighed down the socio-political oppression of patriarchy and they'll eventually get to do what they want when we, the men in charge, decide that they can.
I know that I'm not a misogynistic person, I don't agree with discrimination in any form, but when a woman commits a crime, intimidates someone, or injures innocent animals, I don't see gender, I just see a reprehensible human being and I will then totally invalidate their whole movement and make non-sequiturs based on arbitrary contexts.
Some may that Davison's death is shocking, yes. However, you can see from news reel and the photographs that she is clearly unhinged and may have been affected by a woman's temperament or her monthly cycle. It's hard to say whether she threw herself in front of that horse because she's a woman. I know that some of my female friends have called for her not to be used as a martyr for their cause but not all women want this. She was a criminal for invading the race track and it's a shame she died instead of being prosecuted in the correct and orderly manner.
In my opinion, as a man who does not directly suffer negatively as a consequence of these issues, I think that the women should just stay home and wait for things to change. This way we can ensure the hegemonic practices remain firmly intact and that peace, order, and justice are preserved.
Like I said, I'm not a misogynist."
