awww I sorry. You know what will feel better? Going into the kitchen and making me some pie I'll even let you wear your tika-jabi's. Okay? Go make pie, you'll feel better in no time.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

What really irks me is when people do not make the distinction between culture and Islam. For example, Saudi Arabia prohibiting women to drive is 100% culture, it has absolutely no basis in Islam.

Men oppress women and claim that it's mandated by Islam but there are other interpretations. At the moment they are the minority opinions but in time they will grow insha Allah. I can already see it working. Especially as people folllow Muhammad's advice (salallahu alaihi wa sallam) to “ask your heart for a fatwa (istafti qalbak).” (Nawawi)

As far as the poll, I chose sometimes because I feel my not having the right to get up and speak in the mosque or be an imam is a form of subjugation.

You might be conflating culture with institutional policy here, a bit.
In a group of all women, by all means you can be an imam. Lead them in prayer, deliver a sermon, teach them, whatever.
In a mixed group specifically in the context of war, you can also be the imam (as in, battlefield commander, lieutenant, etc)
But in a mixed group of men and women, to lead the prayer specifically? No, that's reserved for men only to eliminate distraction.
You can also get up and speak in the masjid but Islam does also advise you to be mindful of local culture, so long as it doesnt conflict with Islam itself. So for example in North America, its generally considered impolite or even rude for a person in any gathering to just get up and blurt out remarks or questions to the congregational leader. Instead, there are accepted methods of delivering your opinions that are regarded as being civil. Using these methods, no one will object if you give your opinion at the masjid.
