A Modest Proposal – 1

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Not directed at you. Directed at all the NGO's that think men are I effected by life's issues. By only siding with women then perpetuates the man's problems.

In this case I understand why this particular organization is female focused but personally prefer NGOs that have an arm directed at men and an arm directed at women. For example I know of an organization that has dormitories, one for men and one for women, and another organization that works with sex abuse victims that has a workshop for men and another for women.

Because that's the one Mrs Stroppy happened to hear about that is offering shower facilities, a specific issue that the OP raised?

I mentioned an association that is offering bathing facilities to cyclo drivers, because it is an association for cyclo drivers. Does it mean it is misogynistic because most cyclo drivers are arguably men?

You need to read and understand what you read before jumping to moronic conclusions.

I would actually like to run a soup kitchen here but I haven't quite wrapped my head around some of the bigger issues and logistics. I'm also aware that I've not been in PP for very long.

Its ok man, chicks always cried about inequality since the 20th century. But man, if you give them an inch, they will go for a mile.
