Feminism in America
If you have a very wide perspective and a long memory of things you’ll see that end the end feminism in America was started and still pushed through by … big business and politicians. I bet that’s a surprising statement for a lot of you. Once that thought settles in, you’ll see how You’ve been had! Been took! Hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led Astray! Run Amok! This Is What They Do! The feminist movement was never about giving equality to women. It was always used as a tool to generate a cheap labor pool, A.K.A. slavery, for big business. As more and more women resist the siren call to “come work” the push and marketing blitz increases and the news stories come more and more radical.

That sounds horrible doesn’t it? Wow, that is just awful. The truth is, women were never supposed to work. Let me put it this way. If, the shoe was on the other foot, and I was a househusband, and my wife worked, and I took care of the kids and the home and did all the shopping and cleaning, I WOULD NEVER GIVE THAT UP. The women’s movement started in 1920, by radical feminist lesbians, who EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, had had horrible relationship experiences. Those leaders went underground when they got no traction. They then returned in 1960 with a new outlook that pleased business and government alike. They then delivered women, on a silver platter, to the powers that be, for them to subjugate in the work place. The psychology of the marketing scheme to get women to give up their families and homes, for a low paying job has been taken into overdrive. Pharmaceuticals have introduced “the pill”, which aids women from getting pregnant and stay working. News agencies put forth story after story marketing the feminist point of view. Nowhere is there ever a happy housewife that loves her husband and raises well adjusted kids in the news. [correct me if I’m wrong] And, the government passes funding for money to keep women working and to oust men out of their lives, i.e. destroying the family, by handing out childcare money and giving incentives to single mothers over married women.
10 things that a man has never said to a woman.
All of these things are things other WOMEN say to women, not men.
- if you get pregnant you can’t further your career
- you don’t have time to raise a family and keep a good paying job
- you need to work to be able to afford the things you want in life
- you’re being oppressed by staying home and being a housewife
- doesn’t breast feeding make you feel like a cow
- I can’t be seen with you in those shoes and that purse
- stop bragging about your promotion
- did you hear about Shanequa
- you can’t provide for your man, like I can
- stop sticking your butt and chest out
The competitive world of women is generally invisible to men. A man can be standing right next to two women who are shooting lazers out of their eyes and growing werewolf sized claws, getting ready to throw down, and he not be aware at all.
Being the employee of a pregnant women, a lesbian woman and a competitive woman, I have been thrown under the bus so many times, I was rudely awakened to the competitive world of women. When I couldn’t understand why hundreds of women, at a former corporate job I had, were content to stay at an opening position, it was my beast of a female manager that rudely awakened me to the “pecking” order of the work place. And, although I was a male and an outsider, I was treated like the female pack, by her. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t think I needed special treatment, but I was more qualified and more experienced than she was, as was probably 70% of the female employees under her. Not that a man would simply step aside, but I don’t think a man would block my transfers and collateral shifts I tried to do to get out of the department. This is exactly what the pregnant and lesbian women did too. Luckily, under the pregnant manager, a male manager saw what was going on and rescued me, over her head. I had no such luck under the competitive woman’s thumb. Working for the lesbian was abysmal and short.
Let me say this, I have never had a male manager soundly plant every possible dagger he could find, into my back. Men tend to be quite up front with their competitiveness. They announce what they are doing, gonna do, hope to do, to each other. They tend to pull out their sword and wave it around so you can clearly see it. Then you, as another man, are to pull out your sword, and hope it is bigger or that it can parry the manager’s sword. If either is true, then you have “won” that battle.
A type A personality male manager will beat you down, but when he gets where he’s going he’ll call you up and offer you a position. This is how politics work, big business works etc. Womanly competition is for keeps. A woman competitor never wants to see you again and hopes you rot in hell. It is for keeps.
It is not unheard of for male employees to follow a male manager / leader from company to company. In the end, that man and employees may end up with him being CEO and the rest being on the board, appointed by him.
