FIXING something is NOT the same task as CLEANING something. You know why?

What everyone’s missing here, including the author is: it’s really a STATUS issue. Men are ALL about status. They compete in EVERY category - with EVERYONE.

To keep it from smelling, be sure to keep liquids out of the loo. Any pee should go directly into the woods, garden, etc. That goes for girls too (use a quart container and pour it out, then rinse or spray the container with windex... or try using a long plastic funnel. There are also burningman-type products made Read more

First of all, I wish I could fix this for you. I hate all of this - what happened to you, to the other women - and no doubt there are even more volunteer victims than the 33% rate you reported.

Not only that, but movies are MEDIA - they demonstrate what society expects and enforces re women. How women are represented in media MATTERS.
