The modern-day feminist not only demands equality, they’re trying to redefine it.
Equality is where everyone begins at the same starting point; given more or less based on achievements and hard work.
Yet, that’s not the correct definition for many of today’s liberated women. In fact, it’s not about equality at all. It’s about superiority.
While the United States offers women more opportunities to succeed than any other nation on the planet (the very reason foreigners flock to America), they neglect to consider where women are granted more priveledges over men.
Privileges which …
- Financially enslave men,
- Put men’s lives on the line, and …
- Place men in jail without due process.
It’s not likely today’s feminist would willingly give up any of those advantages for true equality across the board. Yet, there are many instances in American culture where women have the upper hand.
Women Can Choose Parenthood
When a woman gets pregnant she has three options:
- Legally murder her child: abortion.
- Choose not to list the father of the child on the birth certificate and give the child up for adoption.
- Surrender the baby to a safe haven location.
However, if the woman chooses to have the child (the right thing to do), she can demand financial assistance from the father.
Consider the double standard.
If a woman doesn’t feel ready to be a mother, she can legally end her child’s life. She’s applauded for her decision by those on the Left. Yet, if a man doesn’t feel ready to be a dad, he’s told, “You should’ve thought about that before you had sex.” If this is a true statement, why does a woman have the option and a man does not?
The argument, likely, is she’s the one who has to carry the child. However, why does that excuse her from the responsibility of raising the child? The same responsibility forced on men?
Should a man also have the choice not to be a dad? This is not a noble act by any means. Real men would handle their responsibility, not push to have their child murdered so they could selfishly live a life free from responsibility. Yet, if we’re just talking about legal rights, this is not fair for men.
Plus, in American society, if a woman chooses to abort her child or give it up for adoption, she’s considered (by the Left) to be empowered. Exercising her right to choose. Yet, if a man prefers not to be a parent, recommends his partner gets an abortion, he’s classified as a douche bag.
So, a woman can have a child legally murder her child and hailed a hero. A man can abandon the child and be hailed a deadbeat.
Women Don’t Have To Agree to Die for their County
When a woman reaches the age of 18 she’s not required to sign a Selective Service card.
When a young man turns 18, he’s obligated to sign one.
If he doesn’t, in some cases, he may not be able to get a driver’s license, take advantage of state or federal programs, or college financial aid. Women, however, have access to all those things without signing the card.
Plus, they can vote for a politician who would send men to war.
If the draft should ever be initiated again, women will be safe from serving in the military. However, men will be obligated to serve should the U.S. government require it.
By Default, Women are Granted More Custody in Divorce
Many believe the court system is fairer in divorces when it comes to custody.
That’s not an accurate statement.
Of course, each custody battle is determined on a case-by-case basis.
However, it’s more common for women to get the majority of custody and force the ex-husband to pay. If a father wants equal parenting responsibilities, he has to prove he’s worthy to have it, which is very expensive.
While men are just as capable of raising kids, by default women automatically get the title of ‘primary caregiver’.
Plus, the question comes up, why does the man have to get less custody and pay child support if the woman chooses to leave him (excluding cases of physical assault).
Women can choose to end a marriage and even go on to have affairs and their ex-husband is forced to provide financial support and granted less time with his kids. In retrospect, he basically pays his ex-wife to be a part-time mom; giving her every other weekend off and the occasional overnight stay with dad.
Not uncommon to hear women complain about the less than adequate monthly payment they receive which barely covers all the child’s necessities. Why didn’t they consider that issue before choosing to file for divorce? And, why did she not have a game plan as far as a job? She cannot expect to be a stay-at-home mom, financially supported by her ex-husband, while she dates other men, and demand to be treated equally.
Men Pay More for Insurance
The scale is unbalanced when it comes to insurance premiums.
Women tend to get lower premiums than men do.
If a man has a spotless accident record, he’ll still be charged more for car insurance than a woman with a spotless record. One of the reasons being, men statistically are more daring behind the wheel during their youth.
Yet, if feminist desire equality, shouldn’t they demand the field be leveled?
Men have a strike against them simply for being men. If true gender equality is the ultimate goal of today’s feminist, shouldn’t they be fighting with lawmakers to ensure everyone begins with the same rate?
Only those who choose to drive recklessly and acquire speeding tickets would receive higher premiums. Regardless of gender, everyone is granted the same luxury rates as well as the same increases based on driving performance.
When it comes to health insurance – again – men are charged more.
Healthcare companies justify this based on research which indicates men – in general – dies sooner. And, since men are predicted to die sooner, health care providers know they’re more likely to pay out a claim. Yet, if the wife should die before her husband, does he get the same amount paid out to him? Not likely.
This is a case of a few good students getting punished for the other bad student’s behavior.
Sexual Assault Accusations
Women can cry ‘rape‘ and immediately the Court of Public Opinion will side with them.
We’re not living in an age of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ It’s the other way around; ‘Guilty until proven innocent’.
Even if a man’s found innocent, the accusation will follow him for years.
People left to wonder, was he really innocent? Or, was the victim pushed into dropping the case? Yet, if a man is truly innocent, and his female accuser sticks to her story, the accused will have to fight hard in court, spend a lot on an attorney, and even serve jail time while his court case is pending.
If a man were to accuse a woman of sexual harassment, she would likely get a slap on the wrist. In the age of #MeToo, men have become an enemy.
Today accusations come out of nowhere when a woman stands to benefit from it.
This is not indicating a woman’s accusations and experiences – if she was sexually assaulted – are irrelevant. No one disagrees, if a man is guilty he should face the consequences. The point being made, today there are more accusations coming out of the woodwork. Like the ones which surfaced during Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency. The public was not aware of any majority sexual harassment actions on the President’s part until he declared he was running for president.
Picking from a Smorgasbord
Five areas where women have the advantage and not likely to give up anytime soon.
(WARNING: The following video contains explicit language.)
Feminists seem to pick and choose which parts of the supposed ‘male privilege’ they like, discarding the less appealing aspects of masculinity like paying for meals on dates, working blue collar jobs, or playing the part of protector.
For example, when a crisis happens, is it still ‘women and children first’ or ‘children and everyone for themselves’? If a group of men and women should ever find themselves on a sinking Titanic it’s likely even the most hardcore feminist will play the ‘… but I’m just weak woman needing rescued’.
