For a long time, I never really thought about feminism. Like many, I just casually shook my head saying “Well of course women shouldn’t be discriminated against” because that’s something with which hardly anybody disagrees. But alas, the Left, as usual, relies on a generalized statement to get the general public, who won’t look beyond a bumper sticker, to support their much more absurd notions.
I knew modern feminists were blowing things out of proportion, but I never realized the sheer lunacy behind the whole ideology. I thought things like “Of course women should get paid the same as men” as if there was actual pay discrimination going on. Except that it’s not and this is an incredibly misleading statistic. Plus, once you actually stop and think about it, it becomes absolute nonsense. If women are getting paid less then men for the same job, who in their right mind would EVER employ a man?
Then of course there’s the notion of equality that Lefties are always shouting about. Now don’t get me wrong, as individual human beings under the law, everyone should be treated equally. However, this has evolved to the point where feminists try to argue that there really is no difference between men and women, which is certifiably insane.
“That idea is known as ‘essentialism’: the belief that there are uniquely feminine and uniquely masculine essences which exist independently of cultural conditioning. Both actual (minor) and alleged (major) differences between the sexes have been used to justify inequities and constraints which harm women emotionally, financially and physically.”
Aside from the laughably obvious non-societal differences between a man and a woman, this belief just seeks to disrupt the order of society. It sees these things as “an injustice” to women, despite the fact that the natural balance behind these principles have proven functional since . . . forever. This leads to completely downplaying gender roles. As a result, women become more like men and men become more like women. Then on the extreme end, we have gender neutral insanity where parents raise a child to “avoid stereotyping” them as man or a woman. That is a feminist utopia right there.
Feminism is supposedly all about empowering women over the evil misogynistic chains of a man. This concept has seeped into our society so strongly, on so many levels, that it effects our everyday life and we don’t even bat an eye to it. Women feel they need to to be more empowered which is generally a turn-off to men, and men feel they need to be less empowered, which is generally a turn-off to women. To put it simply, in the constant downplaying and reversal of our gender roles, feminism has caused a gender-identity crisis.
I’ll be blunt. I’m a man and I love women. Unfortunately, while growing up, while I learned quite proficiently how to save women from the evil clutches of Bowser or Ganondorf, those skills didn’t translate into real life. Like many other guys, I learned the perils of being too much of a nice guy. In fact, I’ve accumulated enough frequent flier miles to the “friend-zone” that I could probably travel to the moon for free. I stumbled into relationships that would end due to dysfunctional behavior from either me, the girl, or both. It was only once I decided to pin down and address my “beta-male” inadequacies that I came to realize just how much the societal influences of feminism have infected both men and women.
Today, there are a lot of men who are afraid of women. Many men haven’t really known how to “be a man” because the feminism that is entrenched in our society has so negatively stigmatized . . . well . . . being a man. As a result, men place women atop pedestals. “She’s out of my league” or “I don’t know what to say, she won’t like me” are mere excuses for not taking charge. You shouldn’t be worried about whether she likes you or not. As a man you should be concerning yourself with whether you like her. But instead of making any effort, many men just do nothing out of a fear of something as meaningless as rejection. Then they justify their behavior, while still expecting things to change.
Come on guys!
What kills me is that men are expected to approach women, but feminism seeped into our society frames this behavior as “creepy.” There’s nothing wrong with approaching a girl and having a conversation with her. All you have to do is be confident, be yourself, walk over to that cute girl and say something to get the conversation rolling. I guarantee that the world won’t implode.
You can start with a circumstantial observation like “Hey you look really bored” or it can even be more direct like “You are absolutely adorable, I needed to talk to you” (You’d be surprised how well that works). Then just have a conversation. It’s really as simple as that.
What’s the worst that’s going to happen? Rejection?
Of course you’re going to get shot down. A lot. But we’re conservatives! We embrace the “failure is good” mentality more than any other group of people. Pick yourself up by the bootstraps, learn from the experience, improve, and try again. Those that never fail have never tried.
See, men are expected to lead, whether it be dancing or deciding where to go for dinner. Men have the reputation of being the breadwinners. Generally they provide food, shelter, and security for the woman and this fulfills a woman’s needs. In return, women fulfill the needs of men such as a emotional needs, desire for and nurturing of children, and sexual needs. As Jerry Seinfeld would say about the channel-surfing habits of men vs. women: men hunt, women nest.
Feminists would demonize this mentality in women as a “Stepford Wife” but they don’t realize that this doesn’t imply that women should do nothing with their lives except clean and please a man. If a woman wants to do more with her life in a job or career, nothing is stopping them. There are just specific roles that are built into different genders. As a result, men are more dominant and women are more submissive. This isn’t some misogynist dialogue, it’s years upon years of humanity functionally surviving. These things boil down to our natural instincts and trying to deny them is to deny the very fabric of our existence. Our society is becoming too overly-analytical for its own good.
There will always be minor deviations, but the overall balance should always be maintained. Everything in this world needs some form of order or else it won’t function properly, and society is no different. Feminism, as it stands now, only serves to create disorder and dysfunction in our gender roles and society as a whole.
What can you do to fight it?
Be a man! Be a woman! Whichever you are, embrace it!
And if you truly don’t know which one you are, try taking off your pants for once.
