QotD: “If pain, humiliation, and physical injury made us happy, we would be ecstatic”

If pain, humiliation, and physical injury made us happy, we would be ecstatic. If being sold on street corners were a good time, women would jam street corners the way men jam football matches. If forced sex were what we craved, even we would be satisfied already. If being dominated by men made us happy we would smile all the time. Women resist male domination because we do not like it.
