Society has ALWAYS had a matriarchal aspect. Homeless men have always existed and been objects of contempt. Don't you think that if 80% of the homeless were WOMEN, a lot more would be done about it? And regardless of what anyone says, the execution of KARL Faye Tucker would never have generated the outrage that the execution of KARLA Faye Tucker did. Society has had a limit on how far women could rise but also a limit on how far we could sink. Men fall to the bottom and always have.
