Posted on 06/04/2004 12:43:30 PM PDT by cyborg
Dear American Feminists,
I am a thirty year old woman living in the United States and have been studying what is known as 'the women's movement'. I've read some of your books especially those written by Gloria Steinem and other famous women's rights advocates. Reading these books I hoped to gain some insight into the movement that my fellow conservatives railed against. I sought to find out why Rush Limbaugh takes such obvious delight in calling all of you feminazis.
I disagreed with the goals of the feminists such as abortion rights, putting career ahead of family and so on. I thought it would be easy for me to go on with my life and allow you to go promoting feminist causes. After all, this is America and I don't spend my time telling other people how to behave and what to think. However, I did not realize the impact that the feminist movement had in the lives of men and women in this country till I started dating (if it can be called such).
I hope you are happy with yourselves. You've made it possible for more girls to enter spinsterhood than ever before all the while going psychotic and starving ourselves to death into an early grave besides. The biblical verse (I know you hate christianity but please excuse me) that states 'what does it profit a man if he gains the world and loses his soul' comes to mind. What does it matter if I'm rich with a great career, my own car, a healthy 'sex life' and nice clothes if I'm alone when I'm eighty rocking myself to sleep in a dirty nursing home all alone with no grandchildren? Perhaps you don't care that many men cringe at the idea of getting married because you don't care for the institution of getting married yourselves. Perhaps not having children doesn't bother you because you're too busy advocating the murder of children in the womb.
You talk about us women embracing our 'real bodies' and 'our fat womyn' BUT what do you feminists fill your magazines with? It's not 'real womyn' that is for sure. You peddle independent womanhood in the form of acting like a slut, dressing like a slut and having women portrayed as black widows. You champion little girls wearing g-strings and playing rainbow braclet gamwes while condemning girls who save themselves for marriage, or girls who are celibate and dress modestly as 'old fashioned' and 'out of touch'.
My thirtieth birthday came and went, and so far I've learned that many men don't respect women. A married man will go over land sea and tell all kinds of lies to get sex from a girl. I've also learned that trying to attract the attentions of man already burned once by a 'independent woman' is a fruitless effort and these men don't go through half the trouble single men or married men do to use a girl sexually. They do no think we women are worth it. I wonder how many girls will learn about your lies the hard way? How many girls will have a mother like mine to listen to the whining and frustration then only to say, 'see? You need to church and get right with God.' not mothers who are interested in being their best buddies and further encourage promiscuity.
Many young men don't even want to get married but instead wait for those women willing to have casual sex with them. You taught these girls that having unattached sex is the mark of a proud, independent woman like Sex in the City for instance. You trash Jessica Simpson for being a brainless idiot but we BOTH know why you really trash her and don't trash Britney Spears. Frustrated fathers raise sons and tell them never to get married. What are girls like me supposed to do? Or is my choice to want to be a wife and mother not as vaunted as having abortions or group sex on MTV? Bring up marriage and children to a single man these days, and a girl will find herself all alone on a Saturday night. So what's a girl to do? Don't bother answering feminists. American culture has had enough of your answers. Your well intentioned moral boondoggles have hurt women more than you will ever realize. Let's hope you don't spread your false gospel elsewhere.
Thank you for your time.
is dat you Tammy?
Well written -- nice job!
It is good..but you should have posted it late Friday night....(G)
yup I do :)
thanks a lot
Thank you, Cyborg. As a 29 year old woman wondering if she'll ever get married, you've just said what I've been thinking for a while now.
nice rant at that.
And what a brilliant rant it is. If more women thought like you, our country would be very different. Feminists and lawyers have made the institution of marriage very hazardous to men.
In California, the divorce laws are so unfair - it is no wonder most men don't want to get married.
I ought to know, I'm one of the casualties. Although I crave a relationship - I must admit I'm very gunshy....
thanks... I know I'm not the only girl out there who feels this way. It's time the libs get their eyes opened to the truth,
I am 41 years, 11 months, 4 days and hoping to find a long-term, satisfying relationship and hope he is mature enough for the "M" word as some point in life.
The feminist agenda has succeeded with me. I no longer open doors, hold chairs or any of the other things I used to do. I've even stopped lighting cigarettes for women. Nor do I try to date (not worth the effort or expense). I have been told "I can open my own door" etc. too many times. So why bother?
Thanks...I really appreciate it. I wrote this rant for guys getting the shaft by these ladies too.
Are you looking for consolation? Everything you say is true and was predicted at the height of the "women's movement", but nobody paid any mind.
If you are serious for suggestions, I'd suggest affiliating with a church and getting active in a singles group. Or, get active with the Young Republicans. Or, take a class and try to find someone who shares your interests.
There are a lot of good men out there, and they are as frustrated as you at finding someone nice. (They just won't admit it because it doesn't look "macho".)
What happened to the links in your profile ?
I'm sure those dried-up wretches are happy - misery LOVES company.
