Denying that women are a victimized class is simply wrong. What else would you call a segment of the population who are systematically discriminated against in school, work and politics? How would you describe a population whose bodies are objectified to the point of dehumanization?

People who are on the shit end of oppression are oppressed. Accurately describing this is not a matter of politics, but of truth.

Fun fact Harlequin Enterprises was founded on Winnipeg, Canada is the face of the cheesy romance novel industry.
We have to up the ante here, we wrote the rules now we break them.
