We Have Our Ways

Opinionated rambler from Denver

Ultimately, the idea that the United States can stand aside from global developments is as illusory as the notion, common among neocons and paleo-cons, that it could use military force to reshape the world to its design. With demons on the rise, our shrunken world needs the United States, however tattered its image, to stand up for the values and norms it claims to represent.

*The idea of feminism isn’t to make any woman feel “looked down upon.” It is the idea of letting women have the damn choice of leading the kind of life they want without living under “gender-specific” roles. Being a stay-at-home mom OR dad (or etc.) shouldn’t be gender-specific. If it’s your choice to be a stay-at-home mother, than no one should criticize you for it. If it’s your choice to be a single woman, no one should tell you to settle down and get married already. FEMINISM IS SUPPOSED TO LET YOU HAVE THE FREEDOM TO DO WHAT YOU WANT WITHOUT HAVING ANY OTHER WOMAN OR MAN TELL YOU OTHERWISE.*In talking about your ex-boyfriends mistreating you, you openly admitted that you were in harms way at one point in your life. Yes, not every man is like that. BUT, just like your ex-boyfriends, you didn’t know immediately that they were going to abuse you, did you? Did they have signs around their necks upon dating them that said, “Hello, I will emotionally/physically harm you at random points throughout our relationship. Enjoy”? Doubtful. Feminism is the idea of instilling mutual respect into our children, both girls and boys. Our girls can’t stop being intimidated by men if RANDOM men may treat us nicely or may like bashing our heads into walls. *TEACH YOUR BOYS THAT WOMEN ARE PEOPLE, TOO. And they will be the men who lead the way in creating true equality between all genders. Your boys have done nothing wrong. The only way we can all fix assumptions for the men who are actually respectful and amazing is by making more of them as best as we can.
