Gloria Steinem is in the news,
Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing the possibility of Hillary Clinton being the first female commander-in-chief, feminist and author Gloria Steinem offered a diagnosis of how she thought men react to a “powerful woman” like Clinton.
Cokie Roberts said, “So though much has changed, much has not. What about the biggest possible change, a woman president? Steinem endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008, but didn’t think the country was ready for a female commander-in-chief.”
Gloria Steinem said, “What made me feel that way was actually seeing big grownup friends of ours on — guys in the media, who are perfectly serious people, saying things like, about Hillary Clinton, I cross my legs whenever I see her, she reminds me of my first wife standing outside alimony court. Looking at a powerful woman made them feel they had been regressed to childhood, because the last time they saw a really powerful woman, they were eight. So they behaved like eight.”
There have been many totally odd pronouncements lately; with a common theme that one can hardly believe that the speaker intends that people will believe what they are saying (e.g. relationship :Islam and terrorism). Ms. Steinem apparently believes that the time has come to add to the silliness.
Let us consider her supposition. Let us consider classes of guys and their probable reaction to Hillary.
First off is Pajama Boy and his ilk.
Maybe they are a bit intimidated by Hillary, but they love her also; perhaps just like a real Mom.
Let us consider other young men; the ones who are jaded about women and the world. Perhaps some of them had Dads who were frivorced by Mom. Maybe others have been turned off by the poor behavior of young women. Very often, they view women as useful for one purpose, and it is not as a leader of the country. Somehow I don’t think that they will be intimidated by her in the voting booth, or after.
Now on to MGTOWS (including MGTOWS who do not know the term). They see Hillary for what she is, and are too independent to be intimidated.
Now, on to married guys who have been emasculated in marriage (by browbeating, the long shadow of the law, culture, etc.). After a while, they begin to know the score; and even though they may be trapped in marriage, they enough not to compound the error by bowing before Hillary. The same goes for divorced men.
So other than SJWs, which men will be intimidated?
And furthermore, Ms. Steinem’s premise is based on the idea that men have been uber emasculated. It has happen some, but thank goodness it has not happened totally as she implies.
