There’s been a disturbing trend lately where some women think that men are out to get them and that they are the one obstacle on their path to success. These women have developed the mentality that all men are pigs, morons, or both, and they shouldn’t be on this planet.
These feminists (bless their hearts) are part of what’s wrong with this world–a world that rightfully embraces and capitalizes on the physiological and psychological differences between men and women.
These feminists believe that no, we’re ALL equal. Men are women are inherently equal, and as such, women deserve to be on football teams, and men should.. actually, they prefer a world without men, so I suppose they just want women to go out and do everything men do.
It’s not surprising that this mentality has been hurting men AND kids too. Actually, I recently wrote about how it’s doing just that. Go ahead and check these out and feel free to leave comments that’d further the discussion!
Now I’m back with the last part of my “How Feminism Hurts” series–this time I’m addressing how women are negatively affected by it.
Liberated or oppressed?
Today’s feminism has given a rise to the term “liberated woman”: She’s someone whose career matters more than the man she vowed her whole life to or the children she chose to have.
Or better yet, this “liberated woman” is one who is free from anything and everything meant to tie her to any semblance of a real, sane life. She’ll pursue the outside motivators that SHE wants and to hell with whatever gets in her way. SHE matters more than her husband and children. They’re an inconvenience to her. (Hence why she’ll kill those children before they’re born, but that’s for later.)
Truthfully, I don’t want anything with this so-called feminism. This anti-man and anti-children rhetoric is sickening and one I’ll never support because it hurts everyone it comes into contact with.
Take a look at the picture below and think why I may have included it in a post about how feminism hurts women. Focus on the gal in the middle, who’s wearing the orange dress.
In case you haven’t spotted my reason by now, here it is: That dress is grossly and almost disgustingly short. I’m not body-shaming or fashion-shaming her: It’s the truth. Although I guess it’s not as appalling as the fact that this was a professional setting, and she looks like she’s going clubbing.
It’s unfortunate that this isn’t the first time she worn something like this. Let’s call her.. Diana. Yes, I know Diana; all I’ll say is that she’s a colleague. The way I see it, Diana is notorious for wearing equally short skirts or dresses to work–incl. to client meetings where there’ll be a number of men.
I don’t understand the point of showing off your assets in the workplace. When did wearing a “come hither” outfit in a professional setting where everyone will look at you become chic?
(By contrast, take a look at the woman wearing the blue normal-length skirt next to her.)
Feminists have it all wrong. Being a woman doesn’t mean I have to expose myself and damn any man who looks–even though they’re human and have eyes. It means that I have the choice between looking like a quasi-slut and looking normal; between impropriety and modesty.
And that brings me to another aspect that feminists are so wrong about: Modesty.
No, I didn’t grow up in “purity culture” or believing that pants are evil and that my hair must be concealed. Looking modest was more like a given: I didn’t have people in my life who wore revealing clothes so I didn’t have any interest in doing so myself.
As I got older, I learned that my Latina body was embraceable, and by the time I met my husband and we got married and went on our honeymoon in Hawaii, I felt like I was in such great shape that I wanted to show it off w/cute bathing suits and beachy outfits. My husband’s reaction? “Yes, please!” (Men love confident women.)
However, I’m old-fashioned enough that if I think my outfit isn’t all that modest, I’ll still ask him what he thinks because there are things that should be for his eyes only. He always approves. Guess I just overthink things.
Modesty lies on a spectrum and if you point out to someone that something is revealing or not appropriate, they’ll think you’re slut-shaming them. But maybe that’s the best reaction they can come up with because they know they’re in the wrong?
I don’t think one’s body is meant to be over-exposed.
What “liberated” women do to men…and women
Feminism has taken this drive away from men. It taught them that they shouldn’t have to work so hard. It has taught them that their wives should share in their work and it doesn’t matter who does the wife’s work at home. …. –Melanie
[The language of this next quote may be a little unpalatable to some readers.]
The best thing to ever happen to young males was feminism because it saved them a lot of money paying for whores. With all the hooking up and casual sex that goes on these days, most girls act like whores–they just don’t get paid for it. And what guy wants to lay down his life for some skank who has been with 18 guys? What for? He doesn’t see her as motherhood and apple pie, he sees her as a skank. This is why young males stand by and watch when girls are molested and raped–it’s entertainment to them. –Dr. Laura
(Click on each above to see it full-size.)
But what does all that do to women?
Take the first quote: A man who thinks a greater income is more important than having his loving wife take care of the children they made, who believes that an indifferent nanny or money-loving daycare can do the job just as well, isn’t worthy of the title “dad.” I mean any man can biologically produce a kid, but not as many can care for said kid. A man should want the best for his family, and that’s a parent caring for the kid(s).
The first quote also reminds me of a followup issue: And that’s when the woman in a two-parent household where both parents work wants to stay in her job because she can rely on a nanny or daycare, and the husband wants to “support” her. I always crack up when Dr. Laura says those men are scared of their wives and would rather appease them and let them do whatever at the expense of their kids’ health and wellbeing. She has a good point.
As for the second quote, this one resonates more with the term “liberated” woman, and I’ll expand how it can be more damaging in the next (and last) section: When a guy knows he can get sex for free without the commitment, WHAT incentive is there for him to make a commitment?!
(And by commitment, I actually do mean marriage. Again, call me old-fashioned, but not even living together means commitment.)
A gal who gives herself away freely to anyone may be marriage material. “May” being the key word there. But a man will know that that gal doesn’t really have standards. She’s so liberated, that her body isn’t worth anything and she’s not afraid to do the deed with everyone. The man will then think, “If she doesn’t have standards, what does that make me?” Worthless, that’s what. On to the next gal with standards.When a guy knows he can get the goods for free without the commitment, WHAT incentive is there for him to make a commitment?! Click To Tweet
This one almost deserves its own post, and perhaps someday I will write one for it that goes into deeper issues and how abortion hurts men, but for now, suffice it to say that “liberated” women who get abortions are kind of like the skanks that were mentioned earlier.
Women who have sex with men, only to then get pregnant by those men and later abort their babies tell other women who’d never stoop so low that it’s easy to get out of problems, and that commitment is a joke. That a good time is more important than a kid.
This, in turn, makes it detrimental for women in general, because guys who are worth it will come to think that all women are like that: Not only will they use them for food, but they’ll also use them for a fun night and then discard the baby they made–all because it’s too inconvenient for them. What a sick type of birth control.
The so-called “Wage gap”
(Sorry, I lied about the previous section being my last one: this one is, though.)
Modern feminists kicking and screaming about not making as much as men are doing normal women a disfavor by making it seem like we’re such whiny creatures who don’t know the facts:
Whenever gender differences come up in public debate, the so-called wage gap dominates the conversation. A woman makes 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. …. But that number compares all American men to all American women across all professions. No legitimate social scientist would consider that a valid measure. The number is both meaningless and intentionally misleading. ….
Once you compare men and women with similar experience working the same hours in similar jobs for the same period of time—and that’s the only way you can measure it—the gap all but disappears. In fact it may invert. One study using census data found that single women in their 20s living in metropolitan areas now earn eight percent more on average than their male counterparts. By the way, the majority of managers are now women. Women on average are scoring higher on IQ tests than men are. –Tucker Carlson
But still, there are women spouting off this nonsense, and that it’s all men’s faults that they make less–even though there isn’t even any proof of this.
