Our guy in Aragon

The current ideology of radical feminism upholds that women have to free themselves from their biologic conditioning and their evident sexual differences as females and not males. They think everyone could be freely configured according to their wishes and choose to be a man or a woman paying no attention to their original physiologic nature. The equal dignity between sexes is denied, as well as their physical, psychological and ontological complementarity.

As a consequence, this planning abolishes the difference between male-female and promotes rivalry, enmity and violence between the two. In fact, the class struggle enters the couple, the same as Marxism put between the rich and the poor. And so the hate is brought in men-women relations, and hate ends in violence.

When love is removed from family, and violence and hate are introduced in it, arguments and quarrels break out and can lead to the woman or man’s murder and in quite a few cases to the murder of the children.

Every day we can watch on TV stories about the so called “gender-based violence,” but without going more deeply into the reasons which produce them, such as hate sown by the class struggle fostered by radical feminism; and another cause is usually the marital unfaithfulness of some of the spouses. Pundits describe facts, but say nothing about the reasons for them.

However, another current thinking, increasingly widespread, is to live mercy among men and women, the rich and the poor, emigrants and hosts. We should add the necessity of mercy and love within marriage in order to put up with the errors of each one and promote an active collaboration between husband and wife, focusing on burdens and responsibilities.

Assisted suicide

Re “Two missed chances” (Left Foot Forward, July 20):

What is missing in the California report on assisted suicides? After a year, how many self administered the poison as was promised when the concept was marketed?

By omitting an ordinary witness all the flaunted safeguards are eviscerated and our choices are ignored and not honored, allowing exploitation of us all. State Documents in Oregon indicate that 20 percent of their assisted-suicide deaths were bullied by the corporate facilitators forcing the poison. I take exception to the push polls. Yes, 60 percent—even the religious—favor the concept. Then 95 percent change to not-in-favor after they learn how easily the laws can be wrongly administered saying, “I’m not for that.”

This is risking us all, all ages, to be exploited by predatory corporations and predatory new best friends or heirs. Read the language of the laws to discern the double speak, omissions and commissions to reveal the exploited, expended and euthanized.

I was listening to the TV while fixing dinner and when I heard about a cop shooting a person in Minnesota. I thought, OMG here we go again! But as I waited for the announcer to start telling me about the riots and fires etc., it was all quiet!

As the announcer was talking about the victim I looked at the TV and saw why there was no one upset over this. The person killed is a young, WHITE female! No one is out marching over her death or yelling about how some lives seem to matter over others! All lives matter! There are not rows of media there to report it because some lives bring out a larger group of anal orifices.

And why in the hell did they have two rookie cops together? This will be talked about for at least the end of this week, maybe next. But nowhere near as much as if the person was a young person of color. The officer that shot her needs to be charged with murder! In the ’60s, I marched for equal rights, voters’ rights, and we thought that we really going to make a difference for those that needed this help. Well, 50 freaking years later we are still fighting over color! And 50 years from now—if anyone is still here—we will still be fighting over this! All lives matter.
