However, I have not been keen on it for almost as long as the blog has been online. And, gosh darn it, I wonder why feminists studiously avoid fighting for or even discussing such double standards?

These days, this is more or less taken for granted. Zuckerbrot has squandered his tremendous talent and charismatic personality on Silo's foolish project. From 10-12 June 2016, the Union of European Federalists (UEF) held their XXV Congress in Strasbourg, France under the theme of “European Future or National Decline? – Time for a Federal Europe.” The event marked the 70th anniversary of the Federalist campaigns for a United Europe.
