Beware the gender war

Beware the gender war

The Editor,

My sincerest sympathy and respect for Mr. Hun Sen for

answering the angry women trying to turn Cambodia into a battlefield once again

(Phnom Penh Post May 5 - 18). This time it is the gender wars knocking on your

door, with endless quarrels about equal rights and complaints about suppression

of women.

These wars have ravaged the West for 25 years, causing men and

women there to loathe the sight of each other. As a result, in my country, a

marriage lasts on an average five years, and after a divorce the children

ususally lose contact with their father within two to three years, because of

harrassment from the mother and discriminating laws and law practises by

authorities hostile to men (strange indeed, since most authorities are still

men).

Don't let sick women and their even sicker male followers destroy

your culture.

Has your country not suffered enough?

- Thomas Weber Carlsen, Aarhus, Denmark.
