Since I’m bored, and the previous post on this rather touchy subject was badly worded, and most certainly didn’t get my point across, I figured I’d give it another bash.
Of course, having said that, the men hating feminists will still not be pleased with it, or even remotely understand what I am trying to say. Now, to clear that up, it’s not because you’re female, it’s just that you blame all men for things when you’re to lazy to realize you can do what the fuck you want.
The line that always seemed to some how get skipped by women who read that particular post: “Depending on the situation, yes, sometimes it’s better for the male to take a step back from their career.”
It is very difficult to talk about this subject for a bloke, because let’s be perfectly honest about it, he’ll just be branded a misogynist and that is about it. I’m not going to bother going into the other aspects of it, and this time round I certainly wont pull any punches, I intend to be brutally honest about feminists. I’ll be using a few bits I found in the Mrs post that was a reply to my previous one… kind of. I’ll leave a link to it at the bottom of this post as well. She’s the one of the first feminist I’m actually got on with, and, agreed with.
So, the definition of feminism hasn’t changed since Women decided they weren’t just pieces of meat, people’s view of that definition has. Let’s look at a few facts from the end of the 19th Century:
1) Legally, women did not have any status as human beings. They were property of men: first their fathers, then their husbands.
2) Women could not own anything, technically. A woman could not have property in her name, or have a Last Will and Testament.
3) Legally, rape did not exist, especially not within marriages. Often, when rape cases came to court, the judge would punish the woman because it was her fault for tempting the man. Either that or they were accused of lying.
All of the above is great. However, these days, a vast amount of feminists, are simply about hating men because for them it’s easy to blame men for just about anything. Which, if is what has fueled the “Get back in the kitchen” stuff. Despite the fact men tend to say it as a joke, many go off on one and bitch and moan about how you’re nothing more than a misogynist blah blah blah, I turn off after a few seconds of their usual bull shit.
The thing is, now feminism has gone to far the other way, it isn’t about getting equality any more, it has been twisted into a simple hatred of men. You’ll reply and say that I’m the one who is sexist, blah blah fucking blah, but the first thing you’ll do, is probably roll your eyes and then decided instead of thinking about it, and knowing what I’m saying is true, you’ll just reblog this post and call me all the names under the sun. However, if a female posted it, you’d think the total opposite. “Recognizing the differences between the genders is not sexist - it’s the way an individual uses those facts that is.”
Any way, moving on from all of that, here’s the girlfriends blog, check her out and all that jazz. A lot of her rants make good sense. I let her out the kitchen on those special occasions to go online before she does some cleaning, and by the way, that was a joke. Fuck, she’d probably beat the shit out of me with the hoover she broke if I even suggested that!
