Probably you have seen lots of feminists over the years. Cable TV networks like to place them font and center. Even before cable, one found their faces and words everywhere. Do they ever seem happy? Or even content? I for one, say no.
The normal argument against the above is that they are making their case, and as such are downbeat. But perhaps it goes deeper. If you sense what they are using your intuition, they all seem miserable. Tell me if you think otherwise
But what about the feminist minions? Are they happy? Many are not Moms. That makes them sad. Many are broken from riding the carousel. Many are just plain lost in this world. Following feminism does that.
Exit question: Are there any happy feminist warriors?
Addendum by Deti:
Most women are miserable because they don’t have strong men in their lives. Instead, they have weak men who put up with their shitty behavior.
We have weak men who put up with women’s shit because their mothers created those men.
Their mothers created those men by kicking those men’s fathers out of their lives, or by undermining their fathers, by minimizing and reducing fathers’ influence in their sons’ lives, and by shitting on and otherwise denigrating men at every turn.
Women created the very men they now deride and hate. And then wonder why they have no good men, and why they are so unhappy.
Women are now in charge. Women now run everything. And while they really really like the superficial benefits (as much consequence free sex with hot men as they could ever want; paperpusher, no-accountability jobs where they make just enough to support themselves); they don’t like the responsibility that goes with it.
Which is why women create the messes, and then demand that men fix it/clean it up.
Which is why women are always accusing weak men of screwing feminism up.
“Our new feminist society will work – if only men would fall in line and still do all the things they used to do, like go to college, get jobs earning 500% of what they need to survive, and then marry women at 35 or so when they’re done on the carousel for one reason or another.”
“This is going to work. We just need men to make sure it works and do all the heavy lifting. Women will take the credit for the few “successes”, and men must take the blame/responsibility for all the many failures.”
“if things aren’t working, it is because men are not doing what they are supposed to be doing.”
Women are in charge. The dirty little secret is that they hate being in charge, because “being in charge” requires accountability and responsibility, and women just don’t do well with that long term. They can do it. They don’t like doing it.
How do I know this?
Whenever you give women a choice between working full time and supporting a family; and staying at home and raising kids, what do they choose? The latter, every time. If they can do it at all, they do it. If a woman can quit her job and be a housewife, she’ll do it. If she can work part time only, she’ll do it.
Women REALLY do not like being primary breadwinners. They’ll do it, but they hate it. That route almost always leads to divorce. At the very least, it creates a lot, A LOT, of friction in the marriage.
Let’s face facts: A woman cannot respect a man she financially supports. She just can’t do it. She wants to be his wife and lover. But if she supports him financially, she’s his mother. And a normal woman does not want a sexual relationship with someone she views as a subordinate. She just doesn’t.
Women are in charge. And they hate it.-
Originally, [First Wave Feminist] just meant a second-wave feminist who sought, and shouldered equal opportunity and responsibility. That’s what I grew up with and it made sense to me. (Two of my forebears were relatively prominent first-wave feminists.) I learned over time, and expensively, that objectively it’s a ruse (i.e., playing both sides of the street).
My mom was a first waver. So were many of the kids I went to school with. But I was in school just as that worm was beginning to turn. The girls my age and plus or minus 4 years were more or less equal opportunity, equal responsibility, especially about sex. They were just as responsible sexually as the men were. If a chick told you she was on the pill, she was – because she didn’t want to get pregnant. She really wanted to avoid an unplanned pregnancy more than the men did, because she very well understood she’d be left holding the bag if she did get knocked up and it would be her life, not so much his, that got messed up. Girls who were sleeping around were on the pill and had their own condom supply.
The AIDS scare put a real damper on things too, especially for average men.
But things were juuuust starting to turn, because of two things: “Sexual harassment”, and “date rape”. Very quickly, women got on the “anything any man does that I don’t like is sexual harassment” bandwagon. They also very quickly spouted “if I’m on a date with a man or getting sexually involved with him and he does something I don’t like, he’s ‘date raped’ me.”
It was always about power. Women were learning they could start asserting more and more power, not just collectively, but individually, with individual men. It was “you’ll do what I want, go where I want, and say what I want, or NO SEX FOR YOU and I will tell all my friends what a douchecanoe scumbag you are and how you are SO NOT NICE and they will not sleep with you either!”
And it worked. It worked very well, with so many men trained in betadom as the only way to get women and sex.
