The Radical Feminist

I dug this post up from the past for my friend QD


FEMINIST -------------------------------------------FEMININE

In her column, The Feminine mistake, Noel Stranger wants to know when did the feminist movement become ridiculous, anti-male, anti-family and pro-sex? She goes on to ask; “When did it stop being a noble fight to be heard and start becoming a contest in vulgarity? When did feminists start claiming to represent all women but stop listening to most of them?”

That’s a great question to ask. It certainly did not happen overnight. It took decades of ultra liberalism to get the face of the feminist movement we have today. Make no mistake about it, there is nothing feminine about a feminist. The feminist movement today is nothing more than a launch pad to get wacky liberalism into mainstream society. I do believe however that the feminist movement started with all good intentions to improve conditions for women in America.

Equal Pay

Take for example equal pay for equal work. That should be a no-brainer as far as the type of work goes. If the job is simple manual labor or entry level position and if male or female can do the job, work hard at it and climb the ladder of success, they should make the same amount of money for their efforts without sex discrimination.

But, there is a basic lesson of economics to understand when you hear feminist cry and whine today about how women make 75 cents for every dollar a man makes for the same work.

It’s so easy to shoot down this argument with simple logic; if businesses could save 25 cents on every dollar of labor they spend by hiring only women, why would they ever hire a man? Companies could use only a female workforce and pocket an extra 25% of profits by simply not hiring men. Like, duh! If I remember my economics 101 class in high school correctly, businesses exist to make profits. If they don’t make profits they cease to exist.

Stay at Home Moms?

Another issue feminist make a mockery of is the woman who decides to stay home and raise children. This is the ultimate insult to the ‘intelligent’ feminist. Feminist place a much higher value on the individual woman succeeding in the workplace or in a political position than a woman who decides to spend more time with her family and be a mom.

Judge Robert Bork said, "It should be a source of great pride to bear the next generation and to train that generation's minds and morals. That is certainly a greater accomplishment than churning out tracts raging at men and families. It is fine that women are taking up careers, but the price for that need not be the demoralization of women who do not choose that path."

If a woman chooses to place her family over her career, she should be admired as much, if not greater, than any high level business-woman or woman holding a political seat.


What about Men bashing?

You can thank feminists for the way men and women relate to each other now. Take for example the simple act of being a gentleman. I was taught to hold the door for a lady, open the car door for a lady, and compliment a woman on her appearance. Today you run the risk of being chauvinistic with any one of those acts. In truth, simple things like holding a door or opening a car door for a woman is showing respect for her. Not demeaning her.


But I think the times, they are a changing. I think most women see radical feminist for who they really are; a bunch of left wing agenda pushing radicals who would love for more women to kill more babies In Utero.

Recently I commented on another site about this very thing, though I don't think it was taken at all seriously. The morphing of Women's Lib into Radical Feminism was in large part responsible for the breakdown of the family nucleus.

Marrying was demonized and "shacking up" soon became "normal". Having children out of wedlock became trendy and being a single mom was like some badge of honor. Soon, especially in the inner city, finding a man in the house was a rare. Finding a man "of" the house was rarer still.

It's no suprise that crime and violence skyrocketed in the seventies. By the time the eighties rolled around 14, 15, and 16 year old girls were begetting a new generation of doomed children to be raised by the same morals and standards, or lack there of, as they were. The nineties were no different.

Where shall it all end? I believe the day rapidly approaches. It involves a great and bloody battle between good and evil followed by 1000 years of peace on earth. I am commanded, as a Christian, to pray for the hastening of that day.

The stage is set. The earth is primed. There is no prophecy left unfulfilled.

Look. I'm ranting on your site. Forgive me. Good subject.

Rant on!

That's one of the reason this site exists.

Another factor of the "75 cents on the dollar" pay farce is that women with children typically will take lower paying with less time worked to have more time to spend with their children. Men with families, on the other hand, will take more risks and seek higher paying jobs so that their wives can either stay at home with the children or take the lower paying jobs.

Women's liberation began the breakdown of the family. Since when was it a bad thing that women took care of the home and men provided the financial means to live? What we miss today is that both are of equal importance. As a matter of fact, I would argue that the home is more important than what goes on outside of it for a family.

WayneDawg, howdy...I'm wif you on this heah topic--major points yer made.

But Women's lib did not begin the breakdown of the family all by itself, did it? We got look with sharpeyes to see that women's lib is is symptom of dseeper evil, ain't it? The whole secular humanist worldview is what taints ever'thang to the core.

Enjoying gettin ter know you.

What started as a movement for equality, has turned into asking women to give up their rights.There right to be a woman.
I am different from men, I am no less worthy, but I am different.
I have the right to be dealt with on a fair playing field.
With that being said, I am a woman.
It is my nature to be maternal.
The so called woman's movement has left woman feeling as if they are less when they choose to not do it all.
Yes, I can.................
but do I want to?
Women who chose to raise their families, and contribute in maternal ways are seen as weak and unproductive.
But we are smarter than that. We see it for what it is.
Now we could use some help.
Thanks to all you XY's up there who appreciate the value of women.
Now go help with the dishes!!

The women's movement brought forth some real issues of equality and opportunity.
As it turns out, races have more similarities than gender. men and women are different. Not better, just different.
This movement, rather than lifting women up, have aked them to denounce who we are.We have been asked to do more and more and more because we can. It is our right.
The abundance in our society is out of control because everyone needs two incomes now.... why would a perfectly good worker stay home all day and do NOTHING.
I am maternal, I am a caregiver, and yes I am a moral compass.This is my nature.
Women are smarter than the movement, but we need your help boys. Allow us to do what we do best. Honour our nature.
And start helping with the dishes!!!!

whoops, had to re write cause I thought my first comment went to comment heaven. Sorry for the repeat.

WayneDawg said...

No problem...although I have a weird desire to perpetually wash dishes.

I know this is a semi old post but I feel the need to comment on it anyway...
I am 20 years old and my parents taught me that it is a good thing to act like a "Lady" (my dad says there is a big difference between a woman/female and a lady)The tought me that it isnt right for a girl to spit, belch, swear, or sit like a guy.

I like it when a guy opens a door for me. I am usualy pretty surprised but I like it.
I love it when a guy pulls a chair out for me.
I am a little weirded out when a guy stands up when I leave.
I hate it when I see a female getting mad at a guy for opening a door for her.
I beleive that women should have the same opportunities as men but I dont think we should get special treatment. I hate it when I hear women fight to get into a male dominated field and then expect them to change everything because "It's to hard"
I work in a male dominated field (EMS) and I am very rarely treated differently. I am perfectly capable of carrying a 300 pound guy on a stretcher down the stairs but I have no problem letting a guy do the lifting if he wants to. Some of the women that I have worked with get mad and say the guys are "looking down on us" by doing that but I see it as them trying to be nice. If someone or somthing is to heavy for me I am perfectly comfortable asking a guy for help. Lets be realistic here the average guy is quite a bit stronger then me (even though I can do more pushups then most of the guys I know)

Alot of the women I know feel that they need to act like men to be accepted. Then they get mad because the guys treat them like men. I dont let anyone change who I am and the guys accept me just as much if not more then the manly women. I see it as a compliment when a guy goes to swear and then blushes and appoligizes to me, many of my female coworkers see it as an insult.

I could go on and on and on but I think this rant is long enough. Thank you for the post and keep up the good work.

I agree with this post.
hi K9!
and
women get 80% less in higher level corporate positins because of the good ole' boys club.
not all bosses are members just like not all crackers are KKK.
but it is still prejudice.
not fair.

unless the women gets menopausal, and the others have to tolerate her crap....then she should get over it, or get out, or take the paycut while she is acting like a fool.

and heres some more anti feminist rhetoric:

Women age 45-55 should NOT be allowed anywhere near presidencies or classrooms. Period.

Menopause is vicious and I have had to cope with other peoples cases of it too often (Like now in APA class) to ignore that it is a dangerous thing to unleash on to a society...or an individual.

K,
Bye
