Why are people in denial about Women’s Oppression?

asked Feb 27, 2018 by Emily  
I am so tired of people denying women’s inequality in the USA.
2 to 3 women are murdered by male partners everyday; There were at least 1,500 last year.
Women are 3 times more likely to attempt suicide than men.
Women have and still do experience a wage gap with a minimum wage that is already too low in the first place.
Women and girls are raped and abused everyday by partners and family members.
Women and girls get harassed on the street and at a work, daily.
Women are silenced, disbelieved dismissed and even charged with legal offenses if they speak up about sexual violence or other crimes/injustices (despite the metoo campaign, this is STILL a problem).
Women still lack access or cannot afford reproductive health care and men are still allowed to vote and dictate reproductive rights for women—women do not have bodily automony, a most basic human right.
Women also have to deal with all the other inequalities and social issues from environmental to familial dysfunction to being a veteran.
Women get raped in peacetime and wartime.

There’s more, but you should get it by this point.

The problem isn’t just male supremacy and male power, women also comply with this oppressive system and step on other women to get a slice of the very small patriarchal-pie-crumbs the fellas leave for us.

I have been raped and abused multiple times. My PTSD is bad at this point. All my focus has to go to taking care of myself and coping in time-consuming ways. I haven’t be able to work a real job in 2 years because I’m always triggered by male coworkers saying sexual or sexists things; and I doubt anyone would hire me at this point.
I am a college graduate, 3.8 GPA and I am only 27.
I fear for my future: how will I eat? I will afford anything? How does one live out of their car or tent and stay safe?
I am sick of people being in denial about women’s oppression in the USA.
Just keep saying everything’s fine...just keep saying we’re equal now...just keep saying it...
I just want a safe place to work and a safe place to live. I don’t need designer bags or anything big.
But I do want female liberation.

Hey emily, you're tough times sound bad, but you're tougher than that mate... people are messed up and its not better for guys on average. The average person is a victim of something and that's life. Guys rape each other, woman beat their husbands, and it happens in all countries of the world.
I'm in Australia and its here too.
I watched a doco called "red pill" by a feminist activist who decided to investigate this topic in the united states and discovered some really shocking and interesting facts.

I think you have the right to be angry and frustrated about the world, but I hope you can find a way to direct your energy to bettering yourself.
Change takes decades, what you want to see happen might take another 20 years... let it be an interest and hobby but dont be consumed by it all.
Continue to strengthen yourself and overcome the situation you feel stuck in.
If you haven't already, train Krav Maga, you can empower yourself quickly through this martial art, against any person physically. It is simply amazing how fragile every human body is when you see it as soft anatomy.
I hope you can overcome this phase of your life.

Good luck mate.
