The New (old) Blame Game……

For the last few years, I’ve been amazed at the backwards way this country is going.  It seems that certain people in this country think it’s alright for us to return to the Dark Ages and ignore any kind of progress.  It’s frightening that many men in politics, religion and the media are blaming women for every problem that comes across the pike.

A South Carolina senate candidate is the latest on the list of offenders. He believes that men can screw around on their spouse but it’s always the woman’s fault……..decidedly misogynistic thinking.

“And yet, I find that in about 95 percent of broken marriages, though the husband’s the one that ran out on his wife, the wife loves her children more than she does her husband. That is an abominable idolatry.

Do you hear me ladies?  It is an abominable idolatry to love your children more than you love your husband, and it will ruin your marriage.  And yet you blame it on him because he ran off with some other woman!  He did run off with some other woman, and you packed his bags.  All of his emotional bags, you packed for him.  Is that true in every case?  No, but it’s true in the vast preponderance of them.

You just ran him off.  You paid more attention to your children than you did to him.  ‘Oh, he doesn’t need me?’  He needs you more than they do.  He chose you, they didn’t.  An abominable idolatry.”

What are these men thinking? It certainly isn’t logical or rational but it does show the fear (even hatred) and insecurity that many men have about women.

Why the fear and insecurity?  I have no idea.  These men are raised by women, have sisters, aunts, daughters, wives, so it makes absolutely no sense why they make these inane claims:

Women shouldn’t make as much as men.

Women don’t work as hard as men.

Women are the reason for divorce.

Women can’t decide things for themselves…….about anything.

Women shouldn’t be allowed a say in their medical care.

Women who are divorced should be ostracized from church/society.

Women love their children too much.

Women shouldn’t have a say in politics, finance, religion or anything else (be seen and not heard)

Women should stay home and tend to the kids, the cooking, and the housework.  Seriously????  In this day and age when it takes 2 incomes to run a household?  It’s ludicrous.

And these are just a FEW of the idiotic things that these misogynists are babbling about.

And let’s not forget the male principal in Indiana who banned teenage girls from carrying a purse containing feminine napkins/tampons, personal wipes and hand sanitizer.  Supposedly, this male principal was trying to prevent texting and inappropriate things being brought into the school…..I can understand that.  But this guy wants a medical excuse from a doctor for something that happens to females every month after a certain age.  I’m sorry, but this is a natural, monthly event and should NOT require a medical excuse!  I wonder if he makes his wife and/or daughter get medical excuses for their menses?

Yeah, let’s teach young girls to hate their bodies even more with crap like this going on.

This is not progress.  This is regression, repression, suppression and fear rearing its ugly head.    Everything women have fought against for centuries.

We MUST stop electing and re-electing these morons.  We must stop the hatred of women and the persecution of females.  It’s time to take a stand, all of us, not just women against this type of hate,  but women AND men……because once women are forced into subservience and out of the workplace and politics, then those same male misogynists will start on ……….. men.

You can bet on it.

I believe that we are here for a reason. We just don't know what it is. I believe there are no borders or color differentiations. We're all the same under the skin and we all want the same basic things. I hate injustice and tend to take a stand against what I feel is unfair and just plain wrong. So, read on and comment if you'd like. Happy New Year!
