It’s only wrong to “fat shame” women, men are fair game.
I have mixed feelings about this. While it’s wrong, I’m pretty sure women have millennia of payback on men for being misogynistic so I’m thinking I can let something off the most unreliable news website in the world slide…
I’m pretty sure women don’t live for millennia. Sins of the father is about the most unjust model for justice there is. Present day people are no more guilty of the crimes of their ancestors than I am for the crimes of my mother. As a person, you are responsible for your own actions and yours alone. You can’t just say an entire biological group is inherently responsible for all the ills of the world by merely existing. I am sick to bloody death of this “men have oppressed poor weak helpless women since forever” bigoted bullshit.
And if you read actual history (not the feminist rewrite) you’ll find that women were not fragile and pathetic perpetual victims of the world, delicate little flowers floating helplessly on the wind who couldn’t do a damned thing for themselves until some genius declared them human. Also, if women allowed themselves to be oppressed for thousands of years, that doesn’t say a lot about their strength, intelligence or character does it? They’re not traits that can simply be bestowed upon a biological group. Fortunately I know we were never that stupid or weak.
And I’m also pretty sure that even if the feminist bullshit were true and not so piss easy to disprove (they haven’t quite managed to burn the historical records yet), it would still be preferable to being slaughtered in their millions for wars they had no choice in. The soldiers, who also could not vote, were often shamed into enlisting by those oh so pure and innocent saints, the suffragettes.
How can such downtrodden slaves hold so much power over their oppressors?
Boys too young to enlist and voteless men returning from the front lines were publicly shamed by rich upper class women preaching “equality”, with a contemptuous glare and complete lack of empathy or conscience, safe in knowledge that she will never have to return the favour and prove her courage, give everything only to be discarded.
How could such detested property have the nerve to demand that the King of England shut down coffee houses because their husbands weren’t putting out? In 1674!
Women throughout history believed that the role of men was to protect them, with their lives if necessary. It wasn’t just a role men chose for themselves, it was upheld by the society.
Who would lay down their own lives to protect a piece of property they held in the utmost contempt? Would you die to so that your toaster could serve another day?
The gender roles were not something men invented to oppress women, if they were they failed hard by making themselves disposable, by punishing abused men along with the abusive ones, by allowing women to break out of their role but not allowing men. In theatre, a woman could play a man in a serious role since the 1600s. Yet even now, a man breaking free of his role is met with mockery, scorn or even violence. As well as public shaming and thinly veiled reinforcement campaigns like HeForShe. Some argue that it’s because manliness is seen as superior so the women are allowed to emulate it while the men aren’t allowed to sink to their level. But consider this, slaves were not generally given adequate clothing, what would the master do if he caught his slave wearing his Sunday best?
Queens were not men in drag, the lower class women working alongside the men were in fact women. All throughout history women have been farmers, teachers, doctors, nurses, authors, actors, scientists, blacksmiths, landladies, miners, factory workers, even soldiers and just about every job you can imagine. The rich upper class white women who had no obligation to work, generally didn’t feel the urge to. Many of the early feminists felt they were oppressed because they believed they were not allowed to work because they did nothing to even try, just expected it to handed to her because vagina while believing those few men got where they are because penis while seemingly not noticing their own servants, the proprietress of their favourite hat shop and many of the street merchants and cleaners. I find it interesting that this attitude mirrors modern feminism.
God I’m fed up of this infantalisng bollocks.
