It took you how long to figure this out?

Mona Charen comments in National Review Online on Anne-Marie Slaughter’s Atlantic article, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” (Both are worth reading).

Charen writes:

“But she has discovered that the “have it all” catechism was a lie.  Even with a supportive husband who was willing to “take the lion’s share of parenting while I was in Washington,” she found that she didn’t want to be away from her two teenage sons, particularly when one was having trouble in school…

“Slaughter’s wants mirror those of other women (high-earning and otherwise). A 2007 Pew survey found that among working mothers with children 17 and younger, fully 79 percent said that they would prefer part-time (60 percent) or zero (19 percent) work outside the home. Only 21 percent said they would choose full-time employment while their children were young. This was down from 32 percent who preferred to work full time in 1997.”

Imagine that – women caring about their children and wanting to be there for them.  What will they come up with next?

1960s Feminism, meet Reality.

Oh, and here’s one more quote, just for kicks:

“Despite endless repetition by Democrats and feminists, the idea that women earn less than men for the same work is fiction. Single women without children earn just as much, and sometimes more, than comparably qualified young men. Women earn less (over their whole careers) because they choose to. And they choose to because they place more value on child-rearing than on money or status.”

Will radical feminists believe this?  No, because they’re addicted to perceived personal injustice – what would they whine about if they realized that sometimes they have life just as good as or better than many American men?

I suppose they could move to Africa (or Camden) and run orphanages and start schools for kids whose parents have died due to AIDS, but then they’d REALLY have to compromise.

Wait, I’ve got it… they want to be CEOs?  Okay, start a company in Cambodia and educate, house and employ people who currently live on top of trash dumps and live by fishing recyclables out from among the other dirty nasty ish.  Oh, but there are no pilates classes there.  Hmm.

If only modern-day feminism could be reconciled with the fact that there is no virtue in just doing what makes you happy.

Say What? Say Vagina!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 20, 2012 by conservativewerewolf

Yes, Say Vagina!  It’s liberating.  Or something.

Michigan Democrat Lisa Brown was silenced (gasp!) after saying the following:

“Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.'”

I’m outraged they barred her from speaking! It’s completely unfair to prevent stupid people from saying stupid things – they just can’t help it.

Well, maybe she’s not stupid; maybe she just never learned where babies come from.

You see, the Michigan legislature was debating new restrictions on abortion, which, as we’ve all heard, means they were trying to “legislate women’s vaginas.”  That’s a strange way to put it, considering babies develop in the uterus, and only encounter the vagina when being born.  Or, when their remains are sucked out after decapitation.  Whichever.  It’s all about choice.

Anyway, Lisa was mad and decided to throw a fit on the steps of the statehouse by organizing a performance of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues, in which she would star.  Classy.

Actually, the play’s better than it used to be, since Ensler changed the age of the character who was statutorily raped by a woman from 13 to 16, and removed her comment “If it was rape, it was a good rape.”

(Maybe that’s what Whoopi, who has performed in the Vagina Monologues, meant about a rape not being RAPE rape.  I dunno.  These people are all nuts.)

Yet, despite those modifications, the play is still absurd in that it objectifies women.

Yes, you heard me.  A feminist objectified women by writing the stupid thing, and then thousands of others followed suit by performing it.  Brainpower is not at maximum among these folks.

Now, I was going to explain how the Vagina Monologues objectifies women, but I can’t without being excessively lewd.  I know, I write all kinds of shit, but I think there are people out there who’d really appreciate it if I left learning about it up to them.  So if you want to know, Google it*.  It’s fucking ridiculous.

*To save time, once you find it, ctrl-f “The Vagina Workshop.”  That’s the title of one of the monologues.  No, I am not kidding.

Okay, actually, I will quote the Vagina Monologues.  I’ll leave determining what “it” refers to up to you, though:

“It was me, she said, the essence of me.  It was both the doorbell to my house and the house itself.  I didn’t have to find it.  I had to be it.”

It would be almost funny if they weren’t so darn earnest.

Delayed Adulthood

Rutgers dipstick psychologist says HBO’s “Girls” are not failing:

“In Girls, what’s happening is that these people are exploring who they are. If they’re at home, or having sex or at a party, they’re so into their own heads, Every interaction and situation is an opportunity for miscommunication. It looks like they’re messing up, but I would say they’re not messing up; what they’re responding to is a need to answer questions about themselves: What’s their place in the world? What works in real life when school is over?”

I tried watching an episode of “Girls.”  It was fairly realistic, if being a low/no-standards slut who’s too good to work in a restaurant because she’s got a liberal arts degree (pfffffft!) and just HAS to live in New York to find herself even though she can’t afford it is realistic.

But let’s not be hard on them.  They’re not “failing” – they’re just retarded*.

If this is the new normal, I’m going to give up on humanity and live in a cave.

 

*What?  Retarded means slow.

Crazy Person Played World of Warcraft

And then killed a bunch of people, including teenagers.

Remember this guy?  Mr. Congeniality Norway?  Mm hm.  Well, it has come out in trial that used to play WoW seven hours a day.

Suddenly I wonder about my guild leader…

Because most people who play that much WoW actually leave their houses for things other than work and maybe food.  Maybe.

What was I thinking?? If killing people in WoW can turn a player into a real-life murderer, I better stop playing my druid… I may turn into a bear! 0_0
