It’s not easy being a woman. I have zero experience at it but in reading the stories about Jian Ghomeshi and former NFL running back Ray Rice, and watching video footage of a woman’s experience walking the streets of New York City, I can’t help but feel more than a bit of shame for how they are treated by men.

Comedian Louis C.K. summed it up this way: “How do women still go out with guys, when you consider the fact that there is no greater threat to women than men? We’re the number one threat to women. Globally and historically, we’re the number one cause of injury and mayhem to women. We’re the worst thing that ever happens to them. That’s true. You know what our number one threat is? Heart disease.”
