We need more women who realize that the current socio-economic-political system hurts men as much as it does women.

We need more women who realize that being a man does not equal “powerful” any more than being a woman equals “powerless.”

We need more women who realize that the real source of oppression is not the “patriarchy,” but the corporate state.

We need more women who realize that the real power dichotomy is not between “privileged, white men” and minorities such as women, but between the corporate elite and the rest of us.

We need more women who realize that “privileged, white men” such as Ron and Rand Paul, Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, and Aaron Swartz have done far more to fight oppression and ensure equality for all than has any internet feminist social justice warrior.

We need more women who realize that true equality provides equal opportunity, but does not necessarily guarantee equal results.

We need more women who realize that men and women are both equal yet different, and thus will produce different results, even when provided an equal playing field.

We need more women who realize that both sexes cannot be made equal “by focusing solely on the issues of one of them.”

We need more women who realize that a woman’s “bodily autonomy” only extends to actions that do not harm another human being, and thus her "right to her own body" does not include killing her unborn children or forcing others to pay for her birth control.

We need more women who will not allow a trivial insult such as “bossy” hinder her from aspiring to be a great leader.

We need more women who will not allow herself to be labeled a “bitch” or a “slut” by refusing to act like a bitch or a slut to begin with.

We need more women who realize that the best way to fight against oppression and violence is by empowering women, not by trying to disempower men.

We need more women who realize that the biggest issues facing our society today are the ever-expanding military-industrial complex, the ever-encroaching surveillance state, and the ever-increasing merger of Washington with Wall Street, and who fret less about such trivial non-issues such as big-breasted, scantily-clad female video game characters.

We need more women who realize that the best way to ensure equality for all is to treat all human beings like individuals, not members of a collective.

We need more women who are willing to put the needs of the many over the needs of the few by putting the needs of others before their own self-centered interests.

In other words, we need more women and less “wymyn”!
