Brigham Young once said, “You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman, you educate a generation.”
Feminism has been a powerful tool in history to help bring more attention to an already, well known issue: women count just as much as men. Feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of sexual equality. Basically, whatever a man can do – a woman can do. And, no one can testify to this truth more than … well … ANY man (any “honest” man)! Throughout history, the continued move toward equality of the sexes has run in accordance with major scientific and cultural advances in the world. Kings were not kings without their queens. Men have conquest’ed and murdered in the name of ‘love’ (for a woman). The influential power of women is arguably just as profound and pertinent in all of human history, as any accomplishment made by man.
Heck, if Eve had not taken the Apple in the first place … we wouldn’t be here (and it was well known that Adam didn’t have the courage to take that first bite!)!
So, what’s the story with feminism in the news these days? Women marching around with signs saying “Not my President!” Why? Some feminists post articles (like this one), about just how important it is that the ‘fight’, continues on. Really? Um … what fight? Did I miss something (and really … I REALLY apologize if I did).
Aren’t women allowed every right as men? I thought more than 1 women, starting in the late 1800s, ran for president? It certainly shouldn’t be a matter of actually having a woman president (setting aside the fact Hillary would have really hurt the cause … more than Obama did for the groups looking to him for representation), since women have been presidents before. It’s certainly not fame and fortune … just look to Hollywood and corporate America! It can’t be sports … because … well, “women sports heroes!” Hey – even some religions have made the shift!
So … if it’s not about politics, civil rights, religion, cross-gender, voting, education, science, technology, fame, fortune, or … well … heck … anything else, than, what is it?
Is it the abortion issue? Well … sorry to say, men can’t really decide abortions for themselves because frankly, men can’t have babies. And .. in some ways … this is just better for the whole of society … trust me. (<= NO! Dads make awesome single parents, too … and quite often are unsung heroes … I’m just talkin’ ’bout the “birth” thing). And, frankly, I disagree with EVERYONE on abortion. Let’s just say this: the right to have or not have an abortion clinic, the taking away or giving of the right to abort a child, etc., etc. etc. – has NOTHING to do with giving or taking away a woman’s right to choose. Now, I KNOW, you’re going to hate me for this … and frankly, I just don’t care because I “choose” to exercise my brain power as someone evolved far beyond a primate … but women can CHOOSE whether or not to have sex. So – the choice is still there. (Okay … except for rape … because that’s just the worst and most terrible thing that ever came out of the human race … and there are needs for concessions there).
Is it the wearing of vagina hats at a “feminist” march that makes feminism? Guess what … if 100,000 guys ran around in penis hats … no one would be happy … NO ONE. Okay … maybe except for this guy:
So, please, what is it?
Yes – I agree – there should always be due diligence in society to make sure that old habits don’t re-surge. But, fighting against Trump? Um … what “rights” is he infringing upon. Sure, maybe women don’t like him because his brash mouth said some very stupid things. That … I get. So … he’s an idiot. Welcome to planet Earth, 2017, population: 7 billion idiots. That’s not insensitive … it’s just not being in denial about the rest of the world that needs fixing, too! Frankly, I don’t like Hillary for lying about innocent men who were tortured and murdered. Tit for tat, I suppose. But, no one wore a penis hat and jumped around all crazy about how they would take away sexual rights. Have you seen the vagina hat?
Umm … maybe it’s just me, but … wow. Okay … wow. Please stop for a second, look at that hat, and see if you can “see” a problem.
Do you see it yet? No … look again. It’s okay, I’ll wait.
“Proud owner of a vagina?” Is that …. a message? Is that, independence, power, or strength? I don’t think men are strong because they are proud owners of penises’. Maybe it’s time some women “really” take a look at the anti-feminist movement. (<=No, not being funny).
No, I’m not talking about the abortion thing. I’ve covered that before and you can follow my links above. I’m talking about being proud of who you are in regards to equality of sexes which means … not “pronouncing” you have a vagina. That’s, sort of the “opposite” of equality in sexes. What the heck kind of message is being sent to young girls who should be focusing on their minds, their strengths, and looking forward to their future … not their vagina (regardless of the fact that it causes mixed messages for children that leads to social disarray … for all of you morons that continue to promote this without a care in the world about how you could be hurting kids). Maybe it’s just me (and hey, I get it if it is), but “sexism” isn’t about a vagina or penis … it’s about equal treatment of men and women in regard to their skill, education, and presence as a HUMAN BEING. Isn’t that worth something? It is to me … but I guess I’m out of touch with reality.
My mom was an amazing and strong person – and she exemplified the best in women, never giving in, and never surrendering … but she was always a woman and didn’t care about sexes. For those who don’t know … the top picture in this article of the strong woman … was a LIE! It was propaganda designed to get women to work because the government wanted more machines of mass destruction and had shipped out too many men. Women went … and felt empowered. So, yay. Unfortunately, they were being used and it is a testament to the truth that feminism MUST NOT be led by a vagina or a penis … but by the human spirit.
I’ll just say this: Women are amazing. They bring babies into this world and babies are all awesome! Women have a sense of empathy and compassion that most men should envy (and I am opposed to an empathetic or sensitive guy being labeled ‘gay’ … because THAT, is a REALLY stupid statement). Women are just as beautiful as men, just as capable, just as smart, just as skilled, sometimes even more capable, FAR better with directions, MUCH better cooks (again, because women actually know how to follow directions and guys are usually .. well .. don’t eat my Mac ‘n cheese .. trust me), and in every situation, they are the perfect opposite of men because … well … you know:
Anyway, I hope I didn’t offend too many people, and to those I offended, I hope were sincerely and deeply wounded. Sound harsh? Nope. Each person is responsible for their own feelings and it’s impossible for me to “make” anyone feel anything. So … it’s not possible for you to be sincerely and deeply wounded by me … but if you were … you missed the point that YOU are in control of your own feelings and YOU are responsible for them. So, don’t let ANYONE push you around.
‘Cause, sincerely, ladies, the current version of the feminist movement sounds suspiciously like someone trying to monopolize on that sensitive nature, free-loving spirit, and amazing purity you have. Remember, nothing in life is given for free … nothing. Women should all know this … they fought and earned their way to where they are now. Don’t let a media that has already been discovered as avid liars suddenly compel you into believing something … whilst they also misdirect you into “forgetting” they are liars (by doing things like leaving out … the TRUTH!) … else … you’re turning the clock back!
“The feminist movement as we have come to know it in recent decades is fundamentally a ‘con.’ … As it is considered treasonous to criticize a sister feminist, no standards of accuracy or honesty are ever enforced. Hyperbole and deceit thus become the formula for success, ‘peer review’ playing no role in reining in misinformation. Any would-be feminist who raises scholarly objections to the rampant misinformation is branded an ‘enemy of women’ and is drummed out of the movement.” – Robert Sheaffer
“Here are young women with more opportunities, more liberties than almost any women in history and at that moment we tell them they’re short-changed silenced victims of a patriarchy? It’s defeatist and demoralizing.” – Christina Hoff Sommers
