I was flipping through this article about Hillary from "The Nation."
(Note to whoever the author of this article is: NOW is neither "mainstream" or "moderate." It is composed of fringe lunatics.)
Women don't trust Hillary because she's opportunistic? Now what problem does a feminist see with that? I thought feminism was about opportunism? Look at how many guys are given the hose--there's VAWA, guys are getting cleaned out in divorce courts, and that's not opportunism?
C'mon, feminists, why not support Hillary? She's doing what a good feminist does and using her husband (of whom I have a low opinion BTW) to get ahead!
So she doesn't act like a true feminist 100% of the time. But that's really no different than you "ladies" who claim that feminism isn't misandry yet wouldn't pass up an opportunity to stick it to a man.
So why won't some feminists support Hillary?
Maybe it's because Hillary has made it more or less clear through her actions that she couldn't get anywhere without a man.
Come to think of it, the feminist movement couldn't get anywhere without men either.
What is it with these single mothers who seem to change their boyfriends more often than they do sanitary pads?
One day I was waiting outside the door of the elementary school my son attends, and I overheard another mother casually say something about "my new boyfriend."
When I was in preschool, kindergarten, back in the mid- to late-1970s, that was basically unheard of. Just about all of my classmates had two parents in their homes.
Now instead of a lifelong commitment, these women live with men until they get bored or can't stand them anymore, then find another sucker. They might as well put revolving doors in their homes with a sign over it saying "MEN."
Do they ever stop to think what it does to their children? Do their children see their natural fathers? Heh--do they even KNOW who their father is? I'd think that this situation would be a bit unsettling for children, not to mention it provides them with a poor role model. Do they not care that their children don't have a stable home environment with these men coming and going?
Whatever happened to "First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage"?
Welcome to our disposable society.
Picture this. You're a man, you work hard to support your family. You come home from a hard day at work, your boss has been ragging on you, you're stressed out. You open the door, your wife is sitting on her behind in front of the soaps...or she may be hanging around in cyberspace.
"Hi, honey, could you please get me a drink?"
She glares at you, "Get it yourself, you have legs."
What's wrong with that picture?
I've seen Divorce Court episodes where women think their husbands are treating them as servants because the men want their homes clean and dinner on the table. If you're a housewife (oh, sorry, stay-at-home wife/mother), what's wrong with that? That is your JOB! A wife is supposed to be a HELP MEET for her husband!
My husband has a stressful job. Sometimes I get stressed looking after our son, but from what I know, it pales in comparison to the stress he's under. See, if he doesn't do his job, he can get fired. I'm not under that pressure. It's no problem for me to have pasta ready when he comes home from work. Wanting a clean house (even with a rambunctious five-year-old boy) and wanting something ready to eat are not unreasonable requests. The husband goes out and earns money for the family, the wife keeps the home--it's called working together as a team.
Why do some of these women get upset when they have to uphold their end and pull their weight? What, they have Peg Bundy as a role model? Sit in front of the idiot box, watch Oprah, eat bon-bons, and expect their husbands to pay for their shopping sprees?
It shouldn't have been housewives in general Betty Friedan called leeches. It should have been just the Peg Bundy disciples.
Proverbs 31:10-31 reads: 10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
I think Weird Al, instead of singing "Amish Paradise," should have come out with a parody entitled "Fembot Paradise." If anyone would care to come up with lyrics to it, let me know.
I'm considered to be a traitor by many feminists. They think that anyone who calls out feminism is a misogynist.
I believe that feminists are the real woman-haters. They perceive acting feminine and ladylike as being weak, and feminist must be STRONG, unga bunga!
Between feminism and the sexual revolution, we've been left with quite a mess. Fifty years ago you didn't see all the single-parent households (mostly single mother), you didn't see all the hooking up, parents weren't afraid to have big families (my mother is the seventh child out of eight), and teachers worried about gum on the desks instead of kids packing heat. Absent fathers leads to a higher crime rate.
Feminists generally believe that gender is a social construct, that we're blank slates--which is why they push homosexuality as normal. After all, gender doesn't matter when you're in love, right? Actually they're wrong. No one forced me to play with dolls, yet there I was in kindergarten playing with dolls with the rest of the girls, playing house, pushing a doll in a carriage, etc. Females generally have a nurturing instinct. When I buy my young son boys' toys and put on Bob the Builder for him, I am nurturing what is there by nature. The differences between male and female are complementary. While I'm struggling not to baby my son and hover around him when he's playing, my husband says he needs to trip and fall a little so he learns.
Abortion is another sticking point with me. I am staunchly pro-life. I recall a quote by a feminist saying that to destroy the family you have to start with its most vulnerable member--the unborn. I wish I could remember who said it and where I saw it, so I could link to it.
