    Why do you assume this?

    Of course women should be allowed to vote. However, there are certain people, especially 18 year olds, who don't understand enough about politics who have the rights to vote and they are also males.

    What do you think "the rule of thumb" means?
    The rule of thumb was in medieaval time and unwritten understanding in english Norman times that a man could beat his wife with a rod no thiker than his thumb without aprobium.

    The excavated skeletons of ancient greek women married to free greek men (Athens) show malnutrition compared with the male *slaves* (pomerantz :"Goddesses whores and slaves"). the ligaments on the shoulders and elbows of women showed signs of having streched and torn , something indicative of having carried heavy things for long perriods of time, thoughout the years. males showed no such wear and tear.

    In 13th Century an english ship averted sinking by tossing overboard not the cargo but the Women on Bord. this was duly reported by the captain i his report
    "oh and by the way, because of the gale we threw the women overboard...:"

    There is a litany of evidence available is undisputable that women have suffered historically under idiot males.
    "Wenn vor uns ein feindliches Heer dann erscheint, Wird Vollgas gegeben Und ran an den Feind!
    Was gilt denn unser Leben
    Für unsres Reiches Heer? (Ja Reiches Heer)
    Für Deutschland zu sterben ist uns höchste Ehr!"

    This depends on the people, a Frankling wouldn't even accept to be not part of the decision making, our current masses are fine with it though

    Anfang, there's no need for your lengthy explaination. I was responding to the part which I underlined.

    No.

    ..."Rule of thumb" doesn't refer to wife beating...
    For more than 300 years "rule of thumb" has meant what most people think it means: any rough-and-ready method of estimating. It's believed to have originated with woodworkers, who made measurements with their thumbs. For more than 20 years, however, some feminists have maintained that rule of thumb has the darker meaning alluded to above. They say that the principle of regulated wife beating was elucidated in the famous legal commentaries of William Blackstone (1723-'80), the basis of much U.S. common law, and that it prevailed in state courts well into the 19th century.

    However, in Blackstone, as Sommers notes, there's no mention of the rule of thumb. We do find the following discussion: "The husband also, by the old law, might give his wife moderate correction . . . in the same moderation that a man is allowed to correct his apprentices or children. . . . But with us, in the politer reign of Charles the Second [1660-'85], this power of correction began to be doubted; and a wife may now have security of the peace against her husband." In other words, once upon a time in olde England, a man could beat his wife. But don't try it now.

    Wife beating has never been legal in the U.S. The Massachusetts Bay Colony prohibited it in 1655, religious groups campaigned against it, and vigilantes occasionally horsewhipped men accused of it. Most states had explicitly outlawed it by 1870.

    So we post that it was common to beat the wife and ok, but we have to count on the whims of a hierarchic patriarchal men's order to not abuse..
    and you people thank the post. Amazing.


    You guys are too much.

    Read What it says above.

    I will look for sources, I do not you may not be right. I could have very well been hoodwinked into believing that the provenance of the Phraze was twofold and that in fact it is a concoction on the part of feminists.
    I will look.

    What is Bothersome is that in the above post I quote your post, which you posted in order to refute my statement in which it clearly states that there was an asumed male right to beat their wife, and you are not at all interested in this apalling reality. and then two people thank your posts because you have somehow "debunked my statement" when in fact the very text that You used proves that men had the "right" to beat their wives!!!

    This discourse was at a place where Brynhild had rightfully brought brought up the spectre of nonaccountable abusive males making life for women Hell -*again*. I make a post, and then you "refute" one of 3 examples, ant this is somehow a victory for the patriarchist side , Where in fact your very post contains admission of former abuse. It boggles the mind that you can post proof of my point, and this is considered a victory .

    I was only concerned with the phrase "rule of thumb".

    The rest of my post is what is it. I've jumped into this argument only to mention the correct usage of the phrase. I've no desire to argue the past legalities of wife-beating.
