Women are not responsible for men's "liberation" and vice versa.  We must
all "train" ourselves.

In the Middle East, women are required to wear chador (full covering) in
order not to "tempt" men and cause their "downfall."  The result of this
thinking and practice has caused great suffering for women - and made men
appear weak of soul and devoid of any self-control.  It has also failed to
lead to the new "golden age" you speak of.

Indeed!  So they better ask nicely.
