Re: “One nation, under perverts: It’s time for women to take a knee,” Nov. 24 Diane Carman column.

I fully agree with Diane’s Carman’s comments about equality, harassment and other things done by men that deny women an equal footing in our society. As I once said, “Women won’t be fully equal until they quit wearing those ridiculous shoes designed by men.” This was of course tongue in cheek, but the rationale stands when you consider the number of practices and policies passed by men over the years, from denying equal pay to restrictions on reproductive choice and other aspects of our lives that matter to women.

I have often wondered just what men are afraid of losing if they back down and allow an equal playing field for women — and more to the point, where did we men ever get off assuming it was up to us to make that decision in the first place? Patriarchy is no more natural than any other form of control and it is past time to stop it. Guys, you might actually enjoy having a hierarchy without patriarchy or matriarchy, just the best and most competent running things (maybe).
