Phobic

Two FB memes have triggered my "not hardly" flag.

One says that men who hate homosexuals are scared of them.
The other says that men who hurt women who try to get an education are scared of educated women.

I don't see that at all.

And it comes back to that bullying theme. Bullies are not scared of their victims. Just the opposite. People hurt the people they are stronger than. The people they look down upon.

Yeah, there may be a handful of men who fear that they would become homosexuals if they didn't fight it. And there may be one or two Bokos out there who are smart enough to know that anyone with a Western style education might be a threat to them in the long run. But those are the rare exceptions.
