A terrible day for global economy, another pointless day for Western feminism.
As Christina Hoff Sommers explains in this article, while women overseas face true oppression, modern feminists look the other way and come up with petty grievances. Universities are no longer a place where you can learn from exposing yourself to different ideas: campuses are now supposed to be “safe spaces” where students need to be protected from harmful ideas, topics, books and discussions. These young students who are going to be leading the world in a few years are so weak that they can’t even bear listening to people speak, if they don’t like what they are saying. It’s “triggering”. It’s the end of free speech.
“Today’s young feminist activists are far too preoccupied with their own supposed victimhood to make common cause with women like Farghadani. This past year I visited and spoke at several US campuses, including Yale, UCLA, Oberlin, and Georgetown. I found activist feminist students passionately absorbed in the cause of liberating themselves from the grasp of the oppressive patriarchal order. Their trigger warnings, safe spaces and micro-aggression watches are all about saving themselves from the ravages of the male hegemony. And they can cite a litany of victim statistics from their gender studies class that shows their plight. Someone needs to tell them that most of those statistics are specious and that, although the threat of harm is a human constant, they are among the most liberated and privileged — and safest — people on earth.”
And we are indeed the most privileged and safest people on earth and yet we think it’s OK to dismiss on the people who allow us to be so privileged, which is, men. They are the hand that feeds us. If a war starts and the world goes crazy, women are doomed and that’s when women are gonna start to appreciate men.Why does it have to be like this? Why is it that only war, poverty and destruction can bring some sense back and bring us back together?
These students don’t know what it means to have to struggle, they don’t know what it means to be poor, to have to fight to get rights, they already have everything. And if that is what a parent wants for their children, to have everything they need, a good life, a better one then the one we had, yet we have failed them. We have spoiled our kids, let them rule us, we haven’t taught them how to be strong and practical, how you need to earn what you have.
Fathers, you have such an amazing power! You have the power to change things, a lot more than you think! I am not saying that you should o the work for us, I’m saying that you need to respect and appreciate yourself and that there is something – a lot – that you can do.
I know feminists have told you don’t matter and your manhood is toxic and you should be as “feminine” as women are, but it’s not true. Teach your kids, both boys and girls, about HONOR, hard work, discipline, teach them, as Karen Straughan says, to own their shit. Teach them that actions have consequences. Even if that means you have to argue with your partner, you have a right to educate your children too.
The United States Supreme Court has stated: “There is a presumption that fit parents act in their children’s best interests, Parham v. J. R., 442 U. S. 584, 602; there is normally no reason or compelling interest for the State to inject itself into the private realm of the family to further question fit parents’ ability to make the best decisions regarding their children. Reno v. Flores, 507 U. S. 292, 304. The state may not interfere in child rearing decisions when a fit parent is available. Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (2000).
