    I quite like that article. I think it illustrates the point well.

    I think it'll just be those of us who already agree with this message who applaud it... I don't see it changing any minds, sadly.

    Very clever. It really shows how patriarchal our society still is that the idea of limiting mens freedom this way is utterly ridiculous but limiting womens freedom in the name of safety is so accepted.
