Never eaten rabbit or squirrel. I've had venison once, at a pricey Philadelphia restaurant. All of them are a bit, well, country. Ate the venison out of curiosity.

rabbit is available easily in US, often at supermarket even, it is tasty Squirrel though is only eaten by appalachian people

Venison is good eating, we should eat as much venison as possible as if we don't eat them, they will eat our cars instead

Btw. I don't agree with extremists on both sides. Advertisement is advertisement, women are not only ones which are altered. 100 % of advertised products is altered (yoghurt, orange juice, chewing gum, clothes, etc.) Everything around us is fake. But I also don't agree with feminists. And I proudly put this: 99 % of feminists are ugly sociopathic women. I'm watching their agenda and it is ridiculous as hell. Instead of helping women in third world countries, where gender inequality is most essential, and sharing their experiences, they concern at models on advertisements, logos of car brands (Volvo) or lyrics of anthems ("brothers" in Slovak anthem should be replaced by "brothers and sisters")

Rabbit is very nice, never had squirrel or venison. Knowingly that is.

In Italy feminists wanted to halt "Miss Italia", that is an Italian tradition for 70 years or so and they complain everybody some girls appear on a TV show dressed like they were on the beach.
They aparently forget that those girls choose do that because they like it and get paid for it. It's difficult to call them "exploited women".
On the other hand, in some parts of the world women are really abused, submitted and exploited, but not because of a their choise but because of very backward mentality and laws.

(and probably most women who complain against ads with half-naked models are fat and ugly and envy them )

BTW, the word 'brothers', not only appears in the Italian anthem, but even in its title!

I agree entirely with the feminist talk, sometimes I wonder, if a boy said they looked pretty, if the problem could have been solved

But in reality, feminism at its early stages was right and popular... woman should be equal to men. But then, it happened and they became equal, in basically all the decent places in the world (right to vote, own property, etc). So now feminism has nowhere to go as the reason to exist is over already for decades, so they just bitch about capitalism (why??) and pretty girls. It is like the ones arguing that a law is needed forcing certain number of women to be on boards of companies. How can such thing be defended based on equality?

I would not say that in practice we can speak about complete equality (e.g. salaries, military, etc). It's natural that those that share common interests unite and fight for their interests together.

Although, that doesn't force us to not consider much of what comes out of those groups as bullshit.

Don't forget that man also pal themselves and push for their interests... so I wouldn't say that the ladies have nowhere to go. They don't have to go anywhere, they just pursue their interests.

Yeah, they are differences in salaries, but do the feminists fight for equal salaries? I have not heard of it. In my country, a law negatively influencing women on maternal leave has been approved. How many feminists do you think took an action? No one! Why? Because they are furious about Volvo logo

They do fight for equal salaries and maternal leave. It's just that newspapers are not interested and don't report.

In Italy it's illegal to sell alchool on motorway rest areas.
