Burn Your Bra, Burn Your Bro, Burn Your Boy, Burn,...


 The Wall Street Journal reveals the carefully constructed lie hanging over us:
Kelly was a bright woman in her early 30s: whip-smart, well qualified, ambitious—and confused. Even a little frightened. 
She worked for a female partner in a big consulting firm. Her boss was so solicitous that Kelly hoped the woman—one of just a few top female partners—might become her mentor. But she began to feel that something was wrong. In meetings, her boss would dismiss her ideas without discussion and even cut her off in mid-sentence. Kelly started to hear about meetings to which she wasn't invited but felt she should be. She was excluded from her boss's small circle of confidants. 
What confused Kelly was that she was otherwise doing well at the firm. She felt respected and supported by the other senior partners. She had just one problem, but it was a big one. One of the male partners pulled her aside and confirmed Kelly's suspicions: Her boss had been suggesting to others that Kelly might be happier in a different job, one "more in line with her skills."
Bingo! "A male partner" told her (not one of her "sisters") meanwhile, her sons are being raised under the tyrannical message to work against half of the population - themselves - just so one of those Marlo Thomas wannabe's could pretend to be That Girl. (Then they'll raise bloody murder if a male actually grows up to be "Da Man"and runs over them,...or, more likely, after the idiots invite it.) And isn't there something fundamentally wrong with running a society according to the cries of it's loudest whiners? 

I noticed this during a discussion of bullying:

The Civil Rights Movement was built on a fighting spirit, not trying to fool anyone (unless you count the cover-up of MLK's adultery, of course) so - since anything built on a lie will result in a lie - why'd feminists bother with this line of attack at all? 

The answer should be obvious:

Merely to deceive, for as long as possible, to see how far they'd get.

Fine - got it - Guys, fuck the naivety, set it on fire:

And save any flowers for the funeral,...

  1. LOL! Having had more than a few run ins with the boss/senior colleagues of the Sistahood of the Traveling Lace Underpants (and male bosses who are completely, 100% pro-feminist so say they all!) I prefer to just have the good, competent, old fashioned boss.
    More likely to leave you alone and let you get your work done, and give you a compliment, bonus, raise, promotion that you actually deserve -- also a lot more understanding as well (my favorite boss was an old, grumpy dude who expected a lot out of me work wise -- but when my kid wound up in the hospital bent over backwards to give me time off; and every other worker could expect the same treatment). No EOE complaints either -- if he told you that you looked nice, it was just that: you looked particularly pulled together that day, no come on (more than I can say for the feminazi guys, and quite a few of the women...sick, predatory bastards a fair few of them were) -- ditto the cronyism or the "follow my way" bullshit.
    Don't make bosses like that now -- and if they are out there, they're probably in line to get fired or cashiered.

    Of course, by buying into the bullshit the majority consign everybody to workplace hell.
    Same could go for kids at school, the whole lot -- some of the worst teachers, NCOs, etc. I've ever met were the nicey nice ones. They wind up screwing with you; they wind up getting you killed.
