The Death of Feminism?

Posted in Culture, Culture Rot, Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Saturday, October 9, 2010, 11: 59 AM

Feminism, if it ever existed at all, is dead. Some recent evidence: The California Chapter of the National Organization for Women, on the heels of Jerry Brown calling Meg Whitman a whore, has endorsed him for governor.

Whatever one may think of Meg Whitman (she has serious faults in my view), she is a woman who earned her own fortune. She is a woman who was not held back by any self-imposed or otherwise-imposed limitations. She never whined about a “glass ceiling.” She is obviously disciplined, competent, and highly intelligent. She has earned the genuine respect of powerful men. Unlike Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama, she made it to the top on her own strengths. In short, she is everything true feminists would hail as their heroine. My mother and grandmother would have loved her for her achievements.

But so-called Feminism (the one with a capital “F”) has never been about opening doors for independent women. The main beneficiaries of what has passed for feminism have been men, especially horn dogs like William Jefferson Clinton. What else would explain the greater support for unrestricted abortion among men, especially young sexually-active ones, than women? What else would explain the rise of so many shiftless men who live in their parents’ homes until they are 30, having mothers and girl friends willing to tolerate such laziness? What else would explain a “hooking up” culture where young people become sex partners without knowing each other’s names? What else would explain the total lack of concern by so-called Feminists for the treatment of women in Muslim cultures? This is a social order made to order…for men, not women.

This is a state of affairs that makes young men giddy, and many young women miserable without understanding why or what is going on. This is the real face of “Feminism.”

NOW’s mission statement was penned by Betty Friedan in 1966: “The purpose of NOW is to take action to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men.”

If that were the true mission of Feminism the California Chapter of NOW would be endorsing Meg Whitman, not Governor Moonbeam. But if the true mission of Feminism is to be as far left-wing liberal as possible and to endorse anyone and anything that advances the Democrat party then the endorsement of Brown not only makes sense, it is inevitable.

    Griff Harsh, the husband of California gubernatorial candidate Nutmeg Whitman, acknowledged in a statement on Thursday that “it is possible” he received and wrote notes on a letter from the Social Security Administration back in 2003, regarding the former Housekeeper/Maid. The Whitman/ Harsh household then fired their housekeeper in June 2009 (after nine years of service), when Nutmeg handlers decided that she was an election liability.

    And now the Jill Armstrong, a former full-time nanny of the Harsh/ Whitman dungeon, came to the defense of the Housekeeper/Maid and told the San Francisco Chronicle that she believes Diaz’s claim because she “know[s] the family” and “what it was like.”

    Meg, Meg, Meg, where do I start, you have reportedly spent $140 million of your own money to get elected Governor but you couldn’t use some of it to get your housekeeper (after nine years of service) some legal help to get her papers, and worse you lied about it. Wow, what a WITCH, of course I meant it with a “B”.

    But your comments on holding employers accountable for hiring undocumented workers real takes the cake, I assume you exempt yourself and your husband, or will you be turning yourself in.

    Meg on holding employers accountable:

    Meg you think you can buy the election, but what puzzles many is if you real cared and loved California then why not do your civic duty and vote, seems more rhetoric than anything else.

    In good times we might give you a try but not in our disaster mode that we find ourselves in after that so-called outsider Independent Republican, named Arnold Schwarzenegger (sold to us by radio personalities John and Ken), ruined our state, yah we will trust another one of you liars, think not. And another thing nine years this maid was in your house, in your house and you failed to learned this major thing about her, come on this sounds like a huge lie that no one can believe in.

    Ebay paid out $200,000 because Nutmeg assaulted an employee, so it’s not the first time she has mistreated an employee. Good luck winning Nutmeg, money will buy you admiration from the majority just from the Gay Old Party (GOP), but not from all of California.
