Sadly, we’re forced to hear the womyn of the current, toxic wave of Feminists rant, rail, scream, and whine about sexism and “The Patriarchy.” While sane people understand that these strident complaints are both groundless and merely the desperate demand for attention by failed women, they may have a point within the narrow context of public housing. The rules governing which housing the state will provide for those unable to support their children is highly gendered.
Gendered Public Housing In America
You see, there is something akin to “The Patriarchy.” We as a society certainly do hold women to lower standard than men in some ways and in some contexts. 😉
Of course, we’re we to treat women who are unable or unwilling to support their children as we do the males – I won’t call them men – who behave in this way, the Feminists would strap on their pussy hats and go crazy in the streets. This is simply because Feminism isn’t about sexual equality; it’s about garnering more, and more, and more special privileges, protections, and monies for females.
In the same hour-long “exit interview” with Oprah Winfrey in which Michelle Obama lamented that Donald Trump’s election victory stole all hope from those demographics Michelle and Barack support, enable, and pander to she also had some “interesting” things to say about the role of the POTUS, specifically her husband’s role in that office.
He and I and so many believe that – what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?
I feel Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate. Having a grown-up in the White House who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil, ‘Hey, it’s going to be okay. Let’s remember the good things that we have.’
— Michelle Obama
Michelle has now voiced and interesting and quite telling opinion. Then, stress and/or tragedy tend to lower one’s inhibitions and cause the truth of what one is and one believes to come out into the light. And of course, the truth of Michelle and her beliefs are rather repugnant to the American people and much more than a little hypocritical coming from her.
The State Is Mother, The State Is Father
You can’t get past the fact that if Obama is “grown-up in the White House,” then we, the People are children – often unruly, needy children – in Michelle’s mind. That’s not just insulting; it’s downright dangerous because that the mindset that empowers the nanny state and leads to the most pernicious and persistent forms of despotism.
In the outgoing FLOTUS’ defense, if one looks at many of her husband’s constituency, the idea that they are unruly, needy children who desperately require and demand parental guidance and attention is not too far-fetched. If, as is likely given her history, Michelle bases her opinion of Americans on them, it’s understandable that she would believe they need the State as mother and father. They obviously need something by way of aid and comfort.
The problem, however, is it is the same sort of failed parenting that produced these snowflakes that is exemplified by the majority of Liberal social policies. As such, this is not a philosophy that can be allowed to take hold in our national discourse.
So Very Offensively Insensitive
Still, Michelle’s rare, honest views are not without their humor or, at the very least, delicious irony. Looking at them from the borrowed viewpoint of many of her husband’s constituency, they’re very offensively insensitive to the experiences and narratives of both Blacks and Womyn.
Given that in any given year in recent memory 66% – 75% of Black offspring do not a have a father in residence, bastardy having become their cultural since the “success” of the 1950s – 1960s “Civil Rights” movement, the FLOTUS’ casual normification and valorization of a father figure is at best racially tone deaf and at worst an endorsement of White Privilege and a tacit remonstration of Black Culture.
Similarly, Michelle’s comment could quite easily be considered as horrifically offensive and insensitive to the plight of the current wave of Feminist womyn inside America’s borders. With the FLOTUS essentially casting Obama in Robert Young’s role, it would seem that she has normalized the “Patriarchy” with Obama being the wise and caring father figure and the head of the should that America represents to Michelle.
Pretty much, if she wasn’t the First Black First Lady she would have been excoriated for this lament with its insensitivity to the special needs of much of her husband’s constituency. But then, her husband enjoyed similar leniency throughout his tenure because he was a Black.
Sometimes – a lot of times these days – you find an image on the web that resonates with you but that you just know will offended many others. The image below, as I recently discovered, is one such and one that will apparently “trigger” some people.
Here, Be Offended
And no, that not me and that’s not one of my wives. It could as well be though and that seems to be offensive to certain sorts, though not the ones that might first come to mind.
Yes, a female – an oh-so-lily-White Feminist and Liberal – actually was offended by my being with a Black woman. According to her, White men shouldn’t date or marry Black women because we’re at the “top rung of the Patriarchy” and the “inherent power dynamic” of such a relationship was wrong, sexist, and racist. 😯
As you might guess, I was rather shocked and a bit offended myself. One, few people, with the exceptions of my wives, will call me out on anything, especially my choices of mates and/or lifestyle. Two, the very idea that a Black woman couldn’t be an equal – perhaps even dominant – partner in a relationship with a White man was something I was shocked to hear voiced in this day and age.
Truly though, as I look at it more, I shouldn’t have been shocked at all. Feminists are some of the worst sorts of sexual perverts and this female did was voice of racially tinged version of that perversion.
Yes, it’s true. According to the Toxic Wave Feminists of these degenerate times, everything and anything that these self-hating harridans dislike is due to the “Patriarchy.” It seems even Global Warming is the fault of men.
