The men or males are still heavily involved in what are called the Death Occupations where they can be more statistically killed or maimed for life and their physical countinence marred..their value in the marketplace against other women or competition marred or scarred for life...even though these jobs pay higher for the RISKS taken??? doing the same work...taking the same RISKS???
As to the contraception issue..I have no problem with women having access to contraception. I do have issue with being made to pay for it on the public dole....for votes.
I think that it should be between a woman and her doctor and insurance company. Not the government...pimping out/merchandizing the women for votes.
The feminist movement is about women having equal rights, okay, and of course, so they should. We should all be equal and feel loved and respected for being so.
However, I wonder - and I don’t begrudge women at all for wanting such equality - why do women want to be equal with men who are obviously so wrong, misguided, and way out there in their ego domination and mind control.
Are women really happy to accept being equal with men in their wrongness, so being just as wrong as men are?
And so wouldn’t a more true feminism be one in which women look to healing their wrongness altogether, not even bothering to compete with men in theirs. To head off down a completely different track, looking to liberate all the feelings they are suppressing and have to keep repressed all so as to be equal with men in their feeling suppression.
So is the so-called feminist movement, just another part of the overall ploy to keep both men and women living untrue to themselves - untrue to their feelings?
Being a man, I was heavily deluded with my own self-importance and feeling denial. I needed a women to point this out to me, a woman who was intent on living true to herself ending all her feeling denial. And a woman whom I would say is working to truly liberate herself.
What do you feel about feminism? Is it heading in the right direction?edit on 24-3-2014 by zuimon because: (no reason given)
Up until the early 1900's women were 'risking their life' in peace times every time
they simply gave birth! and over their fertility period of say 25 years? they were
pregnant a lot!!!
It's not about being like a man, it's being equal in power and being given the ability and chance to effect changes in all facets of societal life from a feministic perspective.
I know many men who turn over their paychecks to their women for spending on the household. Some of these women work and some do not. Nonetheless the women in this nation primarily determine how the monies are spent..on both big ticket as well as small ticket items...across the board. The men keep back some monies and the women determine how the bulk of it is spent. I am not just talking about food here...but everything.,
As to RISK...StarlineNine..I will cover that later in this post.
doing the same work...taking the same RISKS???
Same pay for the same work...the same RISK.
Oh...while I am at it...StarlineNine...I ordered that book you posted
"Womans Inhumanity To Woman"
Waiting for it to arrive. It sounded interesting and informative. Thanks for recommending it.
Women themselves don't single out the women's movement as the source of their misery. To the contrary, in national surveys 75 to 95 percent of women credit the feminist campaign with improving their lives, and a similar proportion say that the women's movement should keep pushing for change. Less than 8 percent think the women's movement might have actually made their lot worse.
“One of the things I have found in reporting on this book is that men do not feel listened to, ... That's part of their anger towards feminism, they feel like everybody else's agenda is more important than theirs.”
2013: The first woman to bring a gender discrimination lawsuit in China, a 23 year old who goes by the pseudonym of Cao Ju, won a small settlement of 30,000 yuan and an official apology from the Juren Academy.
Very glad you are picking up that title. It is a very engrossing and informative read, with 30 years of research to back it up. Glad to hear it interested you.
Yes, I will concede this point.
It is also a fact, orangetom, that women still get paid approx. only .70 cents on the dollar for doing the exact same job as a man. I find that unfair. Same job, same risk. As you mentioned.
It makes no sense at all why she would earn less, especially when the statistics for single women head of households--raising children alone without child support or government assistance--is quite high in the United States. She needs to be making that extra 30%. She needs every dollar that a man does. As it is quite a fact that single parent households; the head being a woman, are at staggering percentages.
