Equating Career Women to Feminism

There has been some consternation on this board about equating career women to feminism.  “They just aren’t the same” , some women will write.

My contention is that career women are the natural result of feminism.  In a way, the career woman is the spiritual daughter of feminism (not real daughter because you would have been aborted within weeks of conception).

Feminism teaches women to behave like men.  It teaches women to compete with men.  It teaches you would need a man as you would a bicycle.  It encourages you to engage in sports as little girls and then older while at the same time cutting men’s athletic programs via Title IX.

And then these same career women are shocked.. SHOCKED I SAY .. that they are thought of as similiar to feminists.

Feminists want them to admit they are feminists too.

Oh but look! That has pretty colours on it so THAT must be correct.

It’s funny. Feminists want them to admit it so they’ll get on team properly. We want them to admit it so they are clearly establishing themselves as the enemy (ie. instead of trying to be manipulative covert enemies instead).

Anyway funny how just about everyone are sick of them being full of sh*t hahahah

Men have standards. Women will be compared. DEAL WITH IT.

I think you’re right Halladay. Second wave feminism started with the idea that marriage was the institution which most oppressed women. The only way women could be liberated from the tryranny of marriage was to not be financially dependent on men. The only way this was possible was for women to work and earn their own money. This line of thinking was the entire basis for equality-in-the-workplace rules, the sexual harassment industry, and all the rest. It was only later that work-as-fulfillment (for women but not men) was tacked on as an additional entitlement.

The logistical tap-dance which was needed to not say all this was based in a profoundly disrespectful view of women’s traditional roles, and a concommitantly high regard for the male role, is something they’re still trying to figure their way out of.
