Feminism and feminists are a big part of what is wrong in American society today. Men and women are different. We have always been different and will always be different. This seems like stating the obvious, but, unfortunately, feminists abhor this concept. They have tried to exploit these differences as a negative influence on society. They are wrong. This bears repeating: THEY ARE WRONG. Anyone, regardless of race, sexual preference, disability, or sex can be whatever they choose to be; they just have to be willing to work for it. And work hard, with the gifts that God has given them.
Yes, there are 'glass ceilings' and plenty of other "ISMs" and "ISTs" in our society. The government, especially race baiters, homosexuals, and women in government, cannot regulate this fact away. You deal with it. Feminists have been ruining the world for other women for generations. Prohibition is a good place to start. The push for a ban on alcohol began in the 1800's as a feminist movement to keep their husbands at home and not out carousing the brothels. Wine and women and wives do not mix well. To give these women the benefit of the doubt, maybe it was a good idea, in theory. However, in reality, it gave us Organized Crime and NASCAR.
Some women resented the rights and freedoms that men had in America. So, before, during, and after prohibition, it was the right to vote that women pursued aggressively. 'Women's Suffrage.' Initially, women's right to vote lead to the nullification of both their vote and their husband's vote. Politicians, seeing this trend, saw dollar signs, and women, being emotionally driven creatures, were easy to appeal to. And so the pandering to the female voter began, and continues to this day.
After achieving the right to vote, women quietly plotted and pushed boundaries further than they ever had been before. The next major leap for women was the Women's Liberation Movement which is ongoing, even today. Women wanted to become college educated, work outside the home, and run for political office. These goals are noble pursuits for single women and they should have equal income for equal output. But, once a woman has children, those goals are no longer noble. The woman should be the person raising her children, not a child care center, full of strangers. There have been too many cases of abuse at the hands of these strangers, and at the expense of the normal development of the children.
Before and during part of the Women's Liberation Movement, there was a second, specific enterprise. The Sexual Revolution. And it was a revolution. It was an all-out assault on normal relationships between men and women. Amidst all of this societal upheaval at the hands of women, we all lost something. The rules had changed. Men were put in the unenviable position of not knowing what were their rights and responsibilities. The point of no return was two-fold. Two events that defined the future of women, marriage, and families. First, the advent of the birth control pill and the second was Roe versus Wade.
Suddenly, women had the freedom to have sex with whomever, wherever they wanted, without the fear of pregnancy. Women became emboldened, even erroneously thinking they had reached the pinnacle of being equal with men. This was not a positive direction for America; some women took this change to be a 'permission' of sorts, to behave like tramps. A proud moment for women everywhere. Then, in 1973, Roe versus Wade went before the Supreme Court, and the most convoluted piece of adjudged law became the law of the land. Women could legally abort unwanted children. If the pill failed, women had another choice for freedom.
But at what cost? A nation's innocence.
It is "women's responsibilities," not rights, that are at issue here. What human being on the face of the earth really wants to go into combat? Yet, feminists consider this to be a 'women's rights' success. These are the women that are hurting women with their sociopathic ideals of male achievements that they think all women should aspire to. Feminists are politically more damaging to women than any male politicians. Feminists are not representative of all women, they are just louder. The destruction of the family can be placed squarely at the feet of feminists. We no longer have husbands, we have 'baby daddies.' Meals around the dinner table, with real discussions, are a thing of the past. Children are not being raised by loving parents, they are simply surviving the best way they can, with little supervision. The parents who are loving, who do know what is going on with their kids are too few.
Some of us, actually miss the times when men were men and that was a trait to be admired. Women in suits and loud exultations of the unfairness toward women have ruined life as we knew it. They took the feminine mystique out of the equation. Some of us liked being treated like we were something special, to be treasured by all men.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
