Re: “Challenging Mayor Tecklenburg to choose love

The City of Charleston does not own Marion Square (nor the things in it), it is leased to them by the Washington Light Infantry and the Sumter Guards, two private groups. I suppose two things that are on the table to not upset people like Ms. Parks in seeing things that offend them would be for these private groups to either erect a fence around the park high enough to obscure the view or have the city use eminent domain to take the park and turn it into a parking lot as they wanted to do back in the 1950s.

Re: “I confess, I'm a reformed lover of the antebellum South

Sigh, if only the extent of human failings and our country's complicated history could be interpreted and explained to us through the thoughts and words of freshman college females......

Re: “My family's Confederate history is a cautionary tale about the dangers of blind patriotic fervor

Your article raises an interesting question about war memorials to the dead. Should we have memorials to those who died in illegal and unjust wars that were fought to ensure the enslavement of people?

The Civil War reminds us of another US war, one where the people conscripted (in this case drafted), were mostly poor, fighting for what they were told was a righteous cause...the Vietnam War. So why if we are told that Confederate soldier memorials must come down, should we not also remove Vietnam War Veteran memorials? After all we have been told by the left forever that Vietnam was an illegal and unjust war. And the average Vietnamese would definitely say that the Americans were fighting to enslave them; They should know, we occupied their country. Should we be ashamed that a brother, a father or an uncle fought in the Vietnam War? Just asking the questions they this navel gazing PC generation have created.

Re: “Talking about sexual assault can help lessen its occurrence

I would say it's the same reason men have to pay for child support even if they are not the father but are married to the woman who birthed the child, or women murders and female teachers who have sex with their underage male students get lighter sentences.

It is sexism, but sexism that has been deeply ingrained since we developed as a society. The current definition of "sexism" is fairly recent, that's not to say it hasn't existed, of course it has, but traditional constructs of expected male and female behavioral and what either side can "get away with" have been around forever, and it's doubtful that those unwritten rules will change soon. First world countries are further along, but without clearly defined and enforced alternative parameters, society will always side with the familiar. You and your lineage have been forewarned.
