Fox news sucks big time!


Fox News has published a sexist Op-Ed. It Says Women's Nature Is To Be Dominated By Men. It says more shitty things.

All they want to say is men are sad because women are not women anymore. Women lost their femininity. The ’70s feminist movement dramatically changed women. Women are not anymore submissive, shy, vulnerable, domitable, malleable, dependent, inferior, secondary, passive, obedient. Women have not played women’s role for decades. But women have the power to turn everything around. All they have to do is surrender to their nature – their femininity. If women become submissive and the slaves of men again, marriageable men will marry them. If not, there should be no marriage between men and women.

Yuck.

It seems an article written in the 12th century gets published in the 21st century.
Women are still victims of sexual objectification, sexual abuse, sexual slavery, sex trafficking, domestic violence, dowry murder, stoning etc. Women are still much more likely than men to be poor and illiterate. Women work more but are still paid less. Women are still oppressed because of religion, tradition and culture. It took thousands of years for women to break the shackles of slavery. They have started getting education and independence. But misogynists do not want women to be strong, courageous, conscious, aware, bold, unafraid. Woman-haters are scared of intelligent women who live with dignity and honor. They believe that two liberated persons can not live together happily. One among them should be in a cage. In this case it is the woman who should play the role of a slave.

They seriously want to go back to the dark ages. Fox news is definitely encouraging the morons to go beyond the limit.

    Ugh. I married my wife partly because I admired her assertiveness. Didn’t want a doormat, I wanted a life partner. How silly is that?

    Thanks for the heads up!

    They are not a legit source of news, and many people recognize that. It’s frightening how many don’t realize they are watching something more like infotainment, operating in the right-wing niche.

    Anyway, if you want to see Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson doing something really awkward this morning, check this out.

      Lucky guy. I was working to get a gig like that a few years ago and came pretty close, but it fell through. I’m older now and it’s looking like this is no longer a possibility.

      But seriously, didn’t John Stewart Mill and Harriet Taylor really put this all to rest in Mill’s The Subjection of Women? I have to credit this work partly to Taylor, Mill’s mistress and later on, wife. This book has one of the best money quotes ever. Mill spends a few pages arguing against the “separate spheres” position and makes the case that many women are quite competent at “man stuff”. And then comes the knockout blow. He backs off that case and lures his his opponents in for the kill. What if separate spheres is right? Here it comes, and this is a paraphrase, Mill said: “That which by nature women are incapable of doing, they do not need to be prevented from attempting.”

    O noes! Not only does this counter men’s wishes to dominate, but also takes away the pastime of criticizing women for being exactly those things that “men” want. What do we do now? I mean, aside from whine about it in right-wing media. Like little girls.*

    *This sentence is mockery operating on teh menz internal belief systems. You know what I mean.

    Fox Nuisance has published a sexist Op-Idiot.

    FIFY.

    It Says Women’s Nature Is To Be Dominated By Men.

    I would suggest anyone who believes that or gives that the benefit of the doubt not to.

    With few exceptions, the species where males are dominant are the ones where males are physically larger than females – in other words, where violence and coercion are possible.

    Wow-well we do live in a patriarchy and I am sure FOX news is in on the anti-woman agenda that has been going on for ages and ages. I am the kind of woman that they are talking about-assertive independent outspoken and unafraid. The Marilyn Monroe days are over. A woman cannot act like that in today’s society and be taken seriously. I guess what they’re saying is that women need a MAN to protect them from this cold cruel world..well I know a guy named “Smith and Wesson” who would do the same thing, and he will do it without any back talk! Women are not trying to be like “men” nowadays. We have found our inner strength and are using it. Life for a woman has never been simple. Things may be getting better now for us and men see this and want us barefoot and pregnant in the home again it seems. Why should us women have to follow a model of behaviour and an attitude that does not fit us? We are human beings with feelings and we are all unique in our own way. If people cannot deal with this then tough shit!
