The History of the World according to FortAnthem
Part Two: The Revolution and the Path to Equality.
Women had build a good world for themselves; they got to stay home all day, watching TV and eating bon bons while the men went out into the world to
do all the work to keep the women in the state in which they had become accustomed. At this point, some women forgot how hard their predecessors had
worked to get them to this point in history.
They forgot that all of their complaining and nagging was just a show they put on for their men and started to believe that they really did have it
hard and that the men were holding them back by keeping them trapped in the home. Some women sought to have a voice in politics while others sought
independence by going out into the workforce themselves. At first, men and the women who still realized how good they had it resisted their efforts.
Then something horrible happened that woke men up to their condition of bondage and began to turn the course of history.
Some women got the silly idea into their heads that men shouldn’t be stopping at the bar on their way home and spending up the money they had worked
so hard for on booze to ease the pain of their dreary existence. They wanted that money for themselves to buy food and a few pretty trinkets and the
latest conveniences to make their lives even easier than they were before. How dare those men spend their hard-earned money on something to make them
feel better about their condition! The Prohibition movement was born.
Women began spreading propaganda about how the men were spending away all their earnings at the bars and that the alcohol made them violent and caused
them to abuse their wives. It wasn’t long before the women got their way and the 18th Amendment was forced through the state legislatures making
alcoholic beverages illegal in the United States. Men found themselves robbed of the one thing that enabled them to numb their minds enough to forget,
even if for just a few moments, how hard their lives had become in order to keep their women living in the lap of luxury.
As the men’s minds began to become un-fogged, they began to see the world around them with new eyes. They saw how the women had enslaved them and
how easy they had it at home while the men slaved their lives away. The men realized that they couldn’t just kill off the women to win their
independence (they still needed sex and homosexuality wasn’t much of an option back then) so they planned to strike back by giving the feminists
what they had been asking for.
Men, not having their minds fogged by alcohol, quickly realized that voting and Democracy was a sham; that the right to vote was the real opiate of
the masses. It gave people the impression that their opinions and beliefs really mattered while allowing the oligarchs to continue running the
government as they pleased. The men acted fast and within a year of the Prohibition Amendment passing, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was
passed “giving” women the right to vote. No longer could women nag their husbands into voting for what they wanted. Instead, the men could tell
the women to go off to the voting booth and cast their own vote if they wanted their voices to be heard. The first shot in the revolution had been
The men didn’t stop there, they began to quietly support even the most radical positions of the feminists such as birth control, the right to find
employment in the workforce and even the right to make a living off of their bodies (legalizing pornography and easing the way toward legalized
prostitution, at least in Las Vegas). Now the women could not deny the man’s advances because they feared having a child. The man could have more
leisure time as the wife went off to work to help support the family and, as the movement progressed and women began to assume more of the
traditionally male attitudes, women became more sexually aggressive and the men found that they didn’t have to buy the cow if they wanted to sample
Women became convinced that this is what they had always wanted and that the men are the ones who held them in bondage throughout history. As women
moved into higher education, “women’s studies” professors reinforced this dogma, making the women want more work and responsibility in the
running of the world (ever notice that the majority of “women’s studies” professors are male; it’s all part of the plan
). On TV, it became
common to see women cast in roles traditionally reserved for men, even the most physically demanding jobs such as police and firefighting. The world
was being conditioned for a world where the men could finally get the rest they desired. Men were well on their way toward turning the tables on the
women, making them the ones to go out in the world to earn a living for their families while it would be the men sitting at home, watching the soaps
and eating the bon bons.
Then something went horribly wrong; the influx of women into the workforce at the same time as the men overcrowded the business environment. It became
easier for employers to find new employees willing to take on even the nastiest jobs. Wages became stagnant and it soon became necessary for both the
man and the woman to work in order to support their families. The rest and relaxation that the men had sought after all the millennia was being pulled
slowly out of their reach. The only solace that the men could take in their condition is the fact that they were no longer alone in their misery; now
men and women had finally achieved equality, sharing the work but both finding that leisure time was becoming ever more rare in a world in which both
sides had become enslaved.
Sure, this whole story is pure speculation. The ravings of an unsound mind some may say (and they wouldn’t be so far off base either) but, you
have to admit; on some level you feel that this story has the ring of truth.
Things in this world are not always as they seem and the human mind needs to explore the possibilities in order to arrive at the ultimate
