Has anyone looked at America’s daughters lately? Well, actually sometimes you can’t help but look.. Many of them have been turned into the ideal model for feminism, complete with skimpy clothing that would rival the average street walker in any large city, coupled with high rates of teen pregnancies and STDs. Of course in the feminist mind and eyes, this is liberating and expressing their feminism. But it doesn’t stop at the leaders of the feminist movement; it’s pervasive throughout our society. From politics to our schools and the popular culture the idea of feminism is more sex and less clothing. The most vital issue to these women is sex and all the accoutrements that go with it, whether it be birth control or abortion and advice on how to get both.
Feminists who purported to be out there working for women’s rights in the workplace since the 1960’s complete with bra burning, staging loud and angry protests, proclaiming their independence from the male oriented society have lost their way. The feminists, in league with Planned Parenthood, elements of the Democratic/Socialist Party, the education system, and, Hollywood have succeeded in taking what might have turned out to be the next great leader of this country and making her into ….. a sex object. Wait a minute. Isn’t that what those 60’s feminists said they were combating? Does this make any sense? No, I didn’t think so either..
In the 1960’s cries of equality for women in every facet of life, from equal pay for equal work, equal sexual freedom (thanks to the pill) thundered in our ears from the shrill women who labeled themselves the leaders of the feminist movement. Well, 40 years later, can they say they’re proud? Unfortunately, they probably would…To them, the ’cause’ isn’t finished until every male in the world walks with their head down and kowtows to any female they come upon.
Hollywood is at the forefront of this new push on feminism. Who could forget Miley Cyrus’ combination striptease and pole dance at last year’s VMA awards, using Robin Thicke as the pole, and that new form of degradation: ‘twerking’? It was a jaw dropping disgusting display. There were actually people who liked it, called it entertaining and cheered her on; of course those people were Hollywood hacks and right in the sewer with her. Her ongoing efforts to pull herself away from her Hannah Montana character have most certainly worked; but this disgusting display substituting for a dance routine is no big surprise. It’s just another expression of that modern feminist..
There are TV shows that take teen pregnancy and raise it to a level of celebrity: most notably, ‘Teen Mom’ followed by ‘Teen Mom 2’ , ‘Teen Mom 3′ and ’16 and Pregnant’. I’ve watched each of the shows and while they purport to be reality shows, just the fact they’re being scripted shows the lack of reality, except that the girls ARE pregnant or have a child. In addition, these girls have made an industry of their pregnancies and now their faces and stories are plastered on the covers of entertainment magazines. To a segment of teenage society, these girls are heroines, somebody to emulate and admire. And in some cases they do emulate them, yet with not the same fanfare, celebrity and money. Those that become pregnant and think their lives will mimic those portrayed on television will be immersed in a genuine reality such as poverty and welfare.
Another great feminist media accomplishment: ‘Girls’ on HBO. This is written and produced by another pillar of feminist society: Lena Dunham. Lena Dunham is probably better known for her campaign ad for Obama comparing a young woman’s first vote to her first sexual experience. ‘Girls’, is supposed to portray the trials and tribulations of young single women working and making their way in the city: a poor girl’s ‘Sex and the City’. But I think it should be called: ‘Sluts’, since the show deals with talking about sex, having sex, thinking about sex and figuring how to get sex, begging for sex and…you get the picture. Wow, such deep thinking went into the dialogue and plot of that show… Yet, that show has quite a following among teenagers. Shows how low the intelligence level has descended..And Lena Dunham has made her way to the February 2014 cover of “Vogue” Magazine. A lot of photoshop will have to go into that cover….
Summer television brought us “Mistresses” on ABC which tells the tale of 4 women who decide because of love to become mistresses. And, of course, all these women have the best of clothing and look fantastic all the time. Just like all mistresses should. Hollywood takes denigration of women to a high level of elegance.
Now to reality:
Last year some girls at Stuyvesant High School on Manhattan, which is supposedly a top rated high school in that city decided they had enough of the dress code and decided to protest the strict dress code by holding ‘Slutty Wednesday.’ They wore the short shorts, mini-skirts, spaghetti strap tops and other clothing that the school had deemed not conducive to a learning environment. But in these teenager’s minds, they were asserting their independence. Of all the causes they could take and run with, they chose going slutty..
They weren’t concerned whether the school curriculum would enable them to get into the college of their choice or learn proper skills to go out in the world and get a decent job. No, the cause foremost in their minds was to assert their independence by looking like a prostitute and proudly proclaiming their sluttiness at school. Excuse me? To be called a slut by someone else is the pinnacle of disrespect to a woman, and yet, this is the persona that these girls embraced. What is even more amazing is that the girls that went against the dress code and wore these outfits had mothers that endorsed them wholeheartedly. Is this what leadership means in this day and age? Twenty years from now I wonder if any of these girls will remember this act as an embarrassment or a proud moment in their lives.
Now, if any of these girls had been approached by a male wanting them to fulfill the moniker they had adopted for that day there would have been outrage, charges of disrespect and male chauvinism. G-d forbid if anyone calls them on it..
Let’s not forget the Democrats’ biggest feminist during the 2012 Presidential campaign. Sandra Fluke was right there, loud and proud, proclaiming that birth control was too expensive and the taxpayers should pay for every sexual experience she wanted. Huh?? I though sex was supposed to be a personal choice? I thought the feminists wanted the government ‘out of’ our bodies.. Guess not anymore if they can get something for free…
And the Girl Scouts aren’t immune to this insanity. In May, 2013, the hierarchy of the Girl Scouts of America (GSA) took part in a global conference called: Women Deliver , “with the purpose of “call[ing] for action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women.” At this conference there were speakers who promoted infanticide and euthanasia, with break out groups dealing with topics on abortion, population control. Exhibitors included the UN, and different offshoots of the Planned Parenthood community.
So, in addition to obtaining badges for camping, hiking and fellowship, will there now be badges for, oh, I don’t know: assisting in an abortion or having an abortion, or how to drown a child that you don’t want? Sounds ridiculous and utterly insane, but what conclusion can you come to when you see the GSA heads embracing this madness?
Teen abortion statistics:
- Teens having unprotected sex have a 90% chance of becoming pregnant within a year, and sexually active teens may also become pregnant when birth control fails
- 1 in 3 women get pregnant before age 20.
- About 750,000 teens get pregnant each year. Two-thirds of these pregnancies, however, are 18 and 19 year olds, who may or may not be married.
- About one third of teens who get pregnant seek an abortion.
- Currently, 24 of every 1,000 teens has an abortion. This means that over 200,000 teens get an abortion every year.
This is the path that many teens are on. Recently a study was done on ‘hooking up’, a practice that some college students are advocating in which you get together for someone just for sex because even though they’re not ready for a long-term relationship, they still need to satisfy their urges.. And for some college students, this is just part and parcel of their college experience.
The cause that many feminists embraced in the 60’s has been hollowed out. The ideals and beliefs that these women devoted their lives to no longer exist.
But then, they may never have existed and this is what they intended all along.
