Why I Don’t Get Along With Feminists
Conservatives and feminists don’t really get along. Obviously, it’s not that conservatives hate feminists, or that feminists hate conservatives. Or at least that’s not how it should be. Instead, a lot of feminists don’t like conservatives. Some may say the reason is a mystery, but it’s actually pretty obvious: it might be the fact that conservatives simply tell them “No free stuff.”
The whole debacle of the ‘War on Women’ blew up when Rush Limbaugh referred to Georgetown student Sandra Fluke as a slut, after she petitioned for government-provided contraception. Of course, the left’s feminist army has begun a campaign upon which they called to end discrimination and‘the War on Women.’
That’s old news; I don’t need to go any farther. We are all done with the War on Women, the war which was never waged. We want it off our timelines, and we want to stop hearing the rambling junk upon which it produces.
If the feminists really wanted to identify a true war on women, they would look to not only their counterparts, but to themselves. For starters, they should look at the people who they align themselves with. For example, we could take a look at the left in retrospect and show a couple examples of their stance of being anti-women. Let’s take Bill Maher, who openly discredits and insults conservative women on a daily basis, or Hustler’s attack on S.E. Cupp.
I’d continue, but you see the point.
Overall, my problem with feminists is I see most of them align against the GOP while ignoring the hate speech aimed towards women from so many on the left. You know, if you do your research, you will notice that great women such as Susan B. Anthony or Helen Keller fought for equal rights for women, as well as equal treatment. That may sound similar to what some feminists fight for today, but not most of them.
By most, I mean the ones I have seen, the ones that attack the mother of children. The mother who stays at home and raises a family, who cooks, cleans, drives her kids to soccer practices. That kind of mom, the kind of mom who raised me, gets undue abhorrence directed their way from so-called feminists. Who raised some of them? Those types of women are special to us, and none of us would be here without them.
Many feminists see these types of women, and shout at them for being part of the societal norm, or perhaps being ‘bullied into the role by an oppressive spouse. That’s sickening. The modern feminist seems to forget the meaning of equal rights and instead pursues equal possessions, and equal financial responsibility, regardless of how many sick days or performance.
The GOP will not provide free contraception, for one reason: we already see women equal to men, not the same as men. We see you equal to men, in the sense that you need to provide for yourself, just as any man does. If you can’t do that, I’d recommend finding a husband who might help.
Nothing says attractive like a woman who can see herself equal to men in modern America without demanding more material possessions but working for it. And nothing says independent like a woman who can provide for herself.
