According to Time, all men are inevitably angry. The only way to stem this drastic tide of angry men is to raise them as follows: "At a young age, this should be done explicitly, in organized forums for discussions at school," Faith Salie writes. "It must be done relentlessly and organically, in our family homes. Parents must invite their sons to be sad, afraid, hurt, silly and affectionate, and must embrace them as often as they snuggle their daughters. Sweet boys learn early on that they can defend themselves against loneliness by reaching out and asking for support rather than turning into people who, literally, grab for power. Sweet boys evolve into open-hearted men who arent confused about consent and sexual boundaries, because they experience women as equals."
This, of course, implies that parents of boys naturally tend to push them away and train them to act more like Spartans preparing for perpetual warfare than, well, the children they are. Girls, on the other hand, can be as fierce as they like. And if fierce requires Spartan parenting skills, I guess that means girls should be, what? Hugged less? Shown Beyonce videos on a repeating track beginning at birth?
Salie exhibits the kind of feminism that held women back in 2017. This was the year in which what was once a powerful cultural movement against gross gender-based inequalities fully pandered to the outrage of its rulers, a minority class of rich, white women with no real problems and plenty of time to kill. Although 2017 is ending with the image of an Iranian woman boldly removing her hijab in a public square, it will forever be defined by the image of American WASPs marching on D.C. in pussyhats. Such is the legacy of a movement defined by women too rich to do any real work and too sheltered to ever experience true suffering.
Hence, the biggest battle in the mind of the American feminist is the one being waged against angry men. Forget the fact that for every Harvey Weinstein there is a Chip Gaines or a Linda Sarsour for that matter. In the mind of the American feminist the true battle is being waged, as Salie suggests, in kids clothing stores across America:
Walk into any baby store, and youre greeted immediately in the boys department by brown and neon green layettes festooned with sharks, trucks, and footballs. Onesies for newborns declare, TOUGH LIKE DADDY. The boy taught from infancy to be tough is emotionally doomed... The clothes marketed to my daughter feature unicorns, rainbows, rockets, dinosaurs, and sequins in every color imaginable. They are whimsical and sparkly.
Permit me to get truly feminist for a moment and suggest that even the mythical powers of the unicorn are phallic, as is the fencing foil Salies daughter crafts out of a kite. But, if a girl is in charge of the pointed object in question its perfectly okay. Salie isnt arguing in favor of gender equality; shes arguing in favor of stripping all men of their sense of an autonomous self. According to Salie, it isnt the man himself, but the man who holds a position any position -- of authority that is truly evil.
Dont let Salies thinly veiled call for (male) empathy fool you. There is no room in her movement for empathy for girls who are forced to defend themselves against the persecution of Islamic clerics, forced genital mutilation, or sex slavery. American feminists dont talk about having empathy for those women. They simply hashtag them and move on to fight the real battles taking place in select Carters and Childrens Place stores all over the country: the battle over whose logo t-shirt is truly the toughest.
2017 isnt just the year feminism failed women. It is the year feminism failed men. Even more sadly, it is the year feminism encouraged mothers to fail their boys. Raising a child should never involve stripping him of his independence, let alone holding him up to a standard rooted in stereotypes. But, I suppose thats what happens when you bind yourself to a movement so limited in scope and function that your pussyhat blinds you from looking past the end of your silver spoonor Target receipt.
Little boys are raised by women up until the age of about 14. Now a lot of women are not happy with the work done by women.
“Sweet boys learn early on that they can defend themselves against loneliness...”
That ain’t all they will be defending themselves against.
I find women to be angrier than men. At least, they seem to show it more.
Destroying manhood. A fond wish of man-hating feminazis who hate themselves.
If these women see nothing good about the male sex, they will certainly be surprised in the future when they experience the result of their evil behavior towards little boys. Their potential of anger towards women has not been seen yet!
If liberalism is a mental disease; then today’s feminists are psychos.
What normal person does not smile at the antics of little boys being boys and playing with cars, trucks, fake guns, etc. Ditto, little girls playing with dolls and real live babies? That is what makes the world go around.
NAMBLA to feminists: we've already been doing that for years....
Leftist women want to emasculate men and boys. Then they hook up with animals or complete wimps. After a few or several years, they become jaded and bitter. And of course they blame everyone but themselves for why they are miserable.
/the above does not apply to Freeper and other real women
Feminists want to turn boys into men even they wouldn’t want.
That’s a good point and the evidence is in the behavior of the latest batch of feminized boys who have reached adolescence and adulthood. They are told by nature that their natural proclivities are fraudulent and evil.
But they have male urges anyway, so when expressed it is done out of guilt. Hence, there are so many more monsters in our youth today.
So natural attraction to women is believed to be evil, so it comes out in evil ways.
Boys are told to express every fleeting emotion, but when combined with testosterone, there is aggression mixed with guilt and cowardice.
They’ve already been doing this. Especially pushing drugs on mostly boys.
They have been doing it for 40 years. Where have you been Susan?
Their effort to Twink up America.
They’ve been targeting little boys since my boys were little.
This stuff will backfire and these people will find the vikings have returned and they aren’t happy.
If the “Vikings” are the Islamic hordes Leftists have invited to invade our country while our young men are sociopaths or wimps.
Gee, my boys got snuggles, giggles, comforting and love, but didn’t end up the kind of sissyboys the Feminazis hope for!
“Theyve already been doing this. Especially pushing drugs on mostly boys.”
So much of Leftist ideology is about modifying the general population to accept an arbitrary Secular Humanist ideal. Those who do not fit-in are marginalized or eliminated.
