You and several women I know like you still think woman are oppressed by men and "patriarchy." I find that ironic. Let's use as an example of an "oppressed woman." You.
You got a M.A. in an easy liberal arts field, and were given a make-work job making $50,000 a year that you do at home on the Internet. You admitted to me you were promiscuous in college.
And what have you done with this freedom? You never married and have no husband. And no home, for that matter, unless you consider an apartment with a cat a home. You told me "men are the cause of all the problems in the world," which is the first defense people engage in - blaming your problems on other people.
You've told me, "Men won't accept my career." To be blunt, you don't have a career. You have a make-work job, and it's you men don't want to accept, because of your bitter, hostile attitude.
You've gone from a happy, bubbly college student to a hostile spinster. That's what you have done with your freedom.
I might have been sympathetic when I was 20, but I got over that fast. I've watched most college girls get easy, worthless degrees and expect secure, high-paying jobs. I watched women go into fields and without exception screw them up.
For that matter, the only reason these women were hired was the fear of lawsuits and Affirmative Action. And when enough women go into a field, men leave.
I thought with all this freedom women would be accomplishing great things, the way some men do. I haven't seen it. I've seen a massive increase in divorce, in single mothers on welfare, in couples not forming and getting married, in abortion, in parasitical worthless jobs, in hostile spinsters on psychiatric drugs, on women denying responsibility for their lives and blaming everything on men, in women wanting easy indoor jobs but certainly not the dangerous ones some men do!
I could go on, but you get my drift, don't you?
To tell you the truth, I've been shocked, disappointed and disillusioned by these developments. That's what happens when you've been fed lies when you're younger, and after the years go by your eyes open. Do you know what it's like to realize women destroy everything they touch? And don't even know it?
You don't know it, but none of this will last, since if it does society and culture will go straight down the crapper. And you know what? When women again are raised under "patriarchy" they'll be much happier. I think a lot of them would be happier with children and playing with recipes.
I wish you had been, sweetheart. I really do.
