It's unbelievable to think of the harassment this woman had to endure just to run that race in 1967. We really have come a long way.

Unbelievable? You must be forgetting who you're speaking of, here. Men have brutalized women and treated them like lower class humans for tens of thousands of years, probably longer. That is not going to change anytime soon.

I disagree that we have come a long way. Sexism may have gone underground and become politically incorrect for a time, but that does not mean it's any less prevalent, or that its acuity has diminished.

Men are disgusting creatures who derive pleasure from the degradation of others, especially women, but also of other "races", ethnicities, cultures... any contrived perception of someone who is different. It's quite embarrassing.

As I often like to do, I'll quote Mark Twain: "Man really is the most interesting jackass. I wonder if God invented man because He was disappointed in the monkey."

Hey Bitofinger, am sure you are smart enough to understand that the Mark Twain quote refers to men and women.

It certainly does. Women share equal responsibility for their role in the entropy of our so called intelligent species. They play their evolutionary part with comparable stupidity.

In fact, one could argue, as many psychologists have, that women are actually the gender with most if not all of the power. If they did not want to be seduced (not to mention degraded), it would not happen.

This, however, in no way exonerates men of their culpability for such shameful behavior. They're still a group of disgusting creatures who, in my humble opinion, do not deserve this unimaginable wonder of a planet on which we live; abundant with beauty, sumptuously teeming with life, a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered, and all soiled by the shortsighted selfishness and apathy of an unworthy life form.

But hey, call me a cynic.

Hey bitofinger, im guessing you were recently dumped.

Please dont put all men in the same list. Infact its only a few men who act like that. If that is the prevalent type of guy in your life you are hanging out with the wrong people. Try meeting men outside of the bar or nightclub. My fiance met me by looking for someone to practice Japanese with.

Try looking for groups which have the same interest as you, be it walking, playing boardgames, learning a language, travelling or even going to the cinema.

Meet them without alcohol, that is important. Drunk people act more like what you described, and that applies to men and women.

If you are angry at the human race then look up 'open change' projects, such as open medicine, open hardware, open software etc. It shows a little of what humanity is capable of. Or the videos titled 'faith in humanity restored'.

Aindy,

Well of course you commit the same fallacy as so many others. The ad hominem is said to be conjured by people who have lost the argument, but I disagree with that inference; it's really used more often by people who had no argument to begin with.

Also, like so many others, you misinterpret disdain for anger. My sublime repugnance for our human species does not stem from anger; it is born of my ever increasing yet infinitely limited understanding of the atrocities and horrors a) we commit; b) we are all capable of. Nor do I hold myself in abeyance or plead immunity from these recriminations; I find myself, regardless of how much I detest the fact, equally guilty of having the same DNA.

If you must know, and since I would guess 20 or 30 other people who have confronted me on this site are under the same misconception, I am one of the most positive people I know. It just so happens that I disagree with almost everyone I know, and in almost every discussion to which I am party.

Sorry to beat a dead horse, but again from the brilliant Mark Twain: "I am not a pessimist; I am an optimist who did not arrive."
