littleoracle-"What if someone walked up to her and said, " You look butch." or put her down for her looks."

She will learn that people are cruel. This is a basic fact of life.

But you seem to think this is only a problem for little girls. Little boys have to put up with cruel namecalling, too. ("you're fat, you`re a fag, you`re a sissy")

littleoracle-"Don`t judge a woman by what she wears."

Why do women get the special pass on this? They want to be equal, right? Well, girls AND boys both have to go through this.

How about `Don`t judge people by what they wear`? But, seeing as you cannot control the cruelty of others, teach your children that the opinions of others mean nothing.

Advocacy groups work for marginalised people. When 50% of a population is treated as 2nd class citizens it is fairly safe to say they are marginalised. I am not quite sure at what point you want to say women are/were not ,marginalised. For starters you need to identify the population group - Earth as a whole- the US, the UK, Finland- London. Then at what point you feel equality is reached. Certainly some groups of women are reaching a reasonable state of equality- but NOT all by a bloody long way. So which women don't count? Women in Saudi or Afghan- poor women of colour in the US- do you think we should all ignore them because a few of you over privileged citizens feel that some rich uppity white women do not know their place. Feminism is not an on/off switch- just as all social justice movements it has shades and nuances depending on circumstance.

Well, that's an even more content-free way of showing that you have no reply because you know I`m right. Well done for finding it!
