Good and lovely Sunday morning to all!
First let me begin my post by statting I am a female, I am strong and proud, and in no way do I wish for myself or my female peers to be Equal to a
I happen to enjoy my superior view as it is NOW, thank you very much.
Gently joshing, men, simmer down, simmer down, just some female humour.
Let me begin by giving my thoughts on the OP and the article.
The OP cites an article by Henry Makow posted on Henry's website,( formerly named savethemales.ca),( I am certain an unbiased website to be
discussing females) Henry posts numerous anti female articles on his website. (oh, right).
As to the article posted, which postulates feminism RUINED the male female relationship.
I say, judging from overpopulation cries by most of the media, males and females are having little trouble "relating".
Just to play along, I will skip a few blocks down Misogyny road, with MaKow. After I take a whack at a couple of gems from this MaKow essay, I will
share some other opinions, from a quick web search, in which I am not the first to pose my rebuttal to MaKow.
From the article the OP posted:
"Yes but: Who taught girls they could have sex outside of courtship, love and marriage?
Feminists did. Feminism brainwashed young women to see husbands as oppressors and family as bondage. There was no longer any reason to restrict sex to
love and marriage. "
No, MaKow, feminists did not teach them this. Above all else their Parents taught them this, in the form of being gone sixty hours a week to support
their children, whom they thought they were having with a great guy, who took off with the twenty yr old down the road because his current wife had
let herself go a bit.....or in the form of an absentee father, off in jail after a siring spree that resulted in sixteen babies he could never
support......or in the form of a mother and father who are so strict their child rebels.....And of course in the time the PARENTS have left their
child to their own devices, their child will find SOMETHING to fill the void, teens tend to go for beer and sex. Traditionally, of course.
From the article in the OP:
"Both mothers and daughters are victims of deliberate social subversion. A woman's career used to be wife and mother. She consecrated her sexuality
for the man she loved, the father of her children, her protector and provider.
Young women today are up a creek. They don't know how to be women and men don't know how to be men. But one thing that hasn't changed is - men don't
marry sluts. These girls are going to be left high and dry once their sex appeal has faded."
To which I say, incredulously,
Has MaKow seen the statistics on divorce? I happened to have made mother and wife MY career, and when he dumped me for a woman ten years younger, my
career did not translate well into marketable skills. I went into tradionally female ways, babysitting, daycare, and all the while struggled to raise
to fine young men on the way, while their father, who failed to protect or provide, went his merry way. I am not bitter or angry, I am proud that
despite my hard and painful life lesson I emerged stronger and better for the ordeal, and so did my kids. I think MaKow's statement about women being
left High and Dry is correct, but in the married woman stage.
Today's young women are NOT up a creek, and if they are they rented the canoe themselves and paddle their own current.
The article is clearly written by a misogynist. The disgusting and perverse lingering on sexual topics, in which the author MaKow gleefully gets to
call females SLUTS, and talk about Blow Jobs being given by teen age children, proves this man is clearly anti female. Think I am alone in my
assessment of the good Doctor?
I am clearly NOT Alone in my assessment of the good Dr.
On an ending note, I believe their is a concerted effort by men to degrade and vilify the power of being female. I consider myself femicentric, which
means female centered. I wish men like Dr MaKow would leave the being female to us females, and get back to focusing on himself, and on being the
best MAN he can be.
He can pontificate until the MaKows come home, but until he is a female MaKaow will never be the expert on us.
