Feminism to me is equal naked time for men and women. We see plenty of half naked women in the media and it is time to start seeing more half naked men. I am not talking about the girly men Hollywood has to offer. I am talking real men with real whiskers and muscles and the kind that will kick someones butt if needs be. There is a feminizing of men and a masculinizing (not sure if that is a word) of women in our society and it is so confusing. Gender roles are no longer defined and it has confused women to the point of mass depression. A womans role is no longer fulfilling. Women should be educated and when they do the same job as a man they should be paid the same amount of money. We should be in control of our own bodies by not being promiscuous and by being strong advocates for children as mothers. Womens liberation certainly can not include the stupefying of women being told by certain organizations how to feel about abortion rights. Does restrictions on abortion really send us back to pre-suffrage? And is abortion really preserved for rape and incest victims? What is the underlying message we are sending our youth about the sanctity of life? What does it mean exactly to be a champion for women when all that is really discussed is back alley abortions killing us off in droves? Where are the women in leadership that say women are more intelligent than this. We will not be the sexual objects of men and we can say NO to sex without protection. This is far more feminised to me.
I struggle with these women's organizations that fight to the death for abortion rights and refuse to define the moral dilemma that exists in the debate. I believe our laws do reflect the morals of our society and what does allowing such a practice and the rationalizing we so conveniently offer say about us? For me it goes beyond a civil right or the right to privacy. It hits at the very core of our societal sickness. What we allow in the name of freedom will eventually be our downfall. Pornography is in the same category. Feminism doesn't make women powerful, it only makes them confused. Hillary doesn't speak for me when it comes to women's issues (nor any other issue for that matter). I find her quite the opposite of a powerful woman. She seems quite co-dependant to me. She stays with a man who openly and constantly cheats on her. A champion for women? I think not. So all you feminists out there feel free to cast your vote for her because she is a woman, but let's not forget her husband is an affront to all women. And it's a package deal. yuck.
