The Feminist Movement—Ruining The Image Of Men
So, people aren’t going to like me for this one, primarily the girls here on ATS, but ohh well it needs to be said.
Feminism refers to political, cultural, and economic movements aimed at establishing greater rights and legal protections for women. Feminism
includes some of the sociological theories and philosophies concerned with issues of gender difference. It is also a movement that campaigns for
women's rights and interests. Nancy Cott defines feminism as the belief in the importance of gender equality, invalidating the idea of
gender hierarchy as a socially constructed concept.
This is but one person's take on Feminism, what is your own take here, OP?
So this is the basic premise of feminism. It was started as a great movement, an amazing movement in order to push for all the things which
were stated above. Now most of those things have been accomplished on some level or another.
I was there, friend, when the women burned their bras and demanded equal pay and recognition, and I have to say, I agreed then, and still do. But,
sadly, there are a lot of women who still do not receive equality, the recent Walmart Class Action suit reflects that.
Also, there are a lot of repressed women, women who are afraid to say what is on their minds for fear of retaliation from men.
It seems that today’s feminism is all about reducing the male gender to nothing. Continually pushing an agenda that seeks to demonize and
put down the male perspective in favor of that of women.
I do not agree with this, the only thing hurting on you, a man, it seems, is your ego. Now don't get me wrong, I too am a man, but my ego does not
drive me like it drives most men. Women will never reduce men to nothing, they need us as we need them.
I have seen this happen first hand in the media, court systems (primarily family court) and in societal settings in general. It seems in this
day and age the women are the rulers and we are the slaves.
Hmmm, you say the women have made you into a slave. Are you saying that before this happened, the women were slaves? That smacks of Islam, and
Christian sects that treat women as slaves to men, doesn't it?
There’s also over the past decade or so, a movement that has arisen to ‘feminize’ men into being more women like. The age of the lumber
jack and the protector are days of the past it seems. Women crave the sensitive, emo type character we see in the movies and books of today’s
I don't agree. You obviously do not hang around "men" places. I was an auto mechanic for many years, and still on occasion go into a service area,
to talk to the service people and smell the smells of a garage again. This is a man's world, in my career I did see a few dedicated woman mechanics,
but they are few, and far between. I think what you are seeing is the Gay people can finally walk with pride and without fear, and this is what you
see, on the street, and on TV and films. I remember when billy Crystal played a Gay man for the first time on TV, on "Soap." Things have changed
since then. When I see a Gay man, it does not threaten my manhood, I am a secure hetro, and have papers to prove it! I have worked for a few people in
the service trades that would not work for Gays. Not me. As a self employed mechanic I worked for a lot of Gay men. They dress nice, smell good, and
always pay cash.
You could also use the new term “Metro Sexual” as the defining label to this new bread of men.
I don't really like labels, have gained more than a few in my life, so I won't agree with a new one for emasculated men.
I want to open a discussing about the points made above, in regards specifically to men being looked down upon as second class citizens, and
being forced to change themselves in order to be successful in what I call today’s “Woman’s World”.
Ok, you asked, now you will get. As I said above I am a man, thrice married with two grown kids and two step kids of school age, and having consoled
abused women for over 25 years, I think I am qualified.
Woman have been suppressed, and oppressed for many years. I mostly blame religion for this, the "original sin" in the Garden of Edin being one
thing they use to further this. Women are naturally smarter than men, and their reaction time is quite faster, they have a greater tolerance to pain,
and men want them. Not just Earth men either. Consider the following webinks, and I will sum up after.....

THE STATUS OF WOMEN IN THE CHRISTIAN SCRIPTURES
(If one reads into the New Testament, since the Adama was created before the
Eve, then men are naturally more worthy than women)

Women's Inferior Status in the Bible
Women of the world, this is for you. The Sacred Feminine has been hidden away for too long. It is time to bring it forth again, and place the Goddess
of all Creation back on her Throne. It is your time, the Age of Woman. Women shall come into power in politics and government. Women shall throw off
the chains that the Christian Church, and the Muslim Teachings have placed upon you. You shall be free! I, and many like me, offer my power to you,
the women of this planet. It is you alone that must save this planet from certain destruction at the hands of men. It is you that must run the
factories that hire workers, and the time is long past with Teachers, both male and female, be paid what you are worth! The time has come for you to
arm yourselves with knowledge, and skills, for a woman armed does not get raped.
You are our Mothers, our Sisters, our Daughters, our Aunts and Grandmas, you gave us all life! When all pass into the Spirit world, the time to act
will be then. forces will attempt to steal your power, and trap your soul once again. Do not listen to the voices! Listen you your own inner voice,
the voice of the Sacred Feminine. Leaders will appear, and together we shall create a new Earth, free of oppression and male domination. I will most
happily submit to the rule of Women. Love and Light to all.
There is a Goddess within all women.
