America Doesn’t Care About Women

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians!  Ha-ha, long time no see.  It’s been awhile since I posted anything original.  Hey, I do re-blog other writers.  Anyway, I want to today talk about the Day of Reckoning with…SEXUAL MISCONDUCT!  Ooooh, taboo!  You women who are reading this…it’s time for you to MAN UP!  [No pun intended!]

Wonder Woman? You? Not!

Wonder Woman you are not!

Has America, (the Almighty U.S.A.), ever cared about women?

“IT” never cared about Native American women, who were exterminated.

“IT” never cared about Mexican women, who are used as cheap coolie labor for American industry.

“IT” never cared about Chinese women, who came after Chinese men who were used as cheap coolie labor to build the American railroad.

“IT” never ever cared about Black women, who were used as slave labor.

So, does America care about white womanhood?  The answer is easy…nope!  No!  Nada!  Even when white males kill to protect white womanhood, nobody cares about women.

Since the early 20th century when women, (and their male allies), took to marching in the streets for women’s suffrage they were brutalized in those streets by angry white men.  (Who else could it have been?  People of color had no projected power.)  Violence is a device of projection.

It’s depressing to think that all social groups, ethnic groups or societies are violently patriarchal.  Some social groups are matriarchal or egalitarian…some.  But I’m talking about only America.  America is unique.  It’s not mono-ethnic like most countries.  I’m not discussing Middle Eastern, Mediterranean or Indo-European societies.  (They don’t seem to care about women either.)  Most males in most societies will use violence to project and maintain the patriarchal folklore.

What is a female and egalitarian male to do?  (Especially now in this Day of Reckoning with SEXUAL MISCONDUCT.)

So, what I’m trying to get at without beating around the bush is, women are going to have to get VIOLENT!  The males are gonna get violent to you!  But I think you already know that.  [Remember the movie, ‘The Burning Bed‘?]  Women’s suffrage or right’s are not going to be won by putting on “velvet gloves”.  If women want to stop sexual misconduct, it’s time to throw punches.  If or when you do, expect to get punched back!  If women decide to shoot, you will get shot back at and/or you’ll get incarcerated.  Why do you think males carry military assault weapons?  Angry disaffected white males don’t like losing or coming in second to women.  [WATCH YOUR BACK!]  Those angry males may shoot and kill Black males to protect white womanhood but white women will be intimidated “ad nauseam”!  [STOP COVERING UP FOR THEM!]  A single white female discussing or “calling out” sexual misconduct is not enough.  I don’t think anybody ever listens to a Black woman “calling out” anything.  Nope!  Women…all women of all persuasions will have to speak up from a “whisper to a scream” to complete this Day of Reckoning.

One person DOESN’T make a difference.

[The one who does not know about it may walk over it.  The one who knows about it will dig it up and eat it.]

This could be the beginning of a NEW women’s folklore.

…until neXt time…

GOP No Longer Party of Lincoln

Leave a comment

Hello zobopians! I’m all for freedom of politics and all but sometimes you have to “kick out the JAMS!”

In today’s rant I’m going to warn the world of fundamentalism. Political and religious. The G.O.P. (Grand Old Party) of today is not legitimate. The Republican party today belongs to the theocrats and the phony sanctimonious shameless power-seekers. Fear and bigotry are their watch words. You’ll hear a Republican claim that they are the party of Abraham Lincoln. Lie! The Republican party no longer adheres to its abolitionist founding, which was the pursuit of freedom for all its citizens. The G.O.P. has become a fundamentalist political party that pursues the restriction of freedom for certain members of our society like women and people of color, as well as the L.G.B.T. community.

I guess this is what happens when the next generation doesn’t pick up where the last generation leaves off.  The next generation, in this case Baby Boomers, hijack a political party and go off in a fundamentalist direction.  The previous generation of Republicans actually were for more equality for women but now they’ve been waging war against women since the 1970’s.  That sounds like a 5th column of women and minority haters.  Fundamentalism in any religion will set society back who knows how far.

Until neXt time…

Hi there world zobopians. Do they still shoot young girls for wanting an education in the fundamentalist Middle East?

In 1989(*) a Jordanian fundamentalist said, “Beating a woman does not hurt her dignity. This is impossible, because woman is born without dignity”. That was from 1989! Looks like nothing much has changed since then. Middle Eastern fundamentalism is dangerous for us all, male & female. I wonder if the Republican War on Women are listening.

Religion Is Dangerous

4 Comments

Hello zobopians! Yes, I know it’s been awhile since I’ve last posted. I’ve been reading and contemplating about women’s studies and religion in regards to women in general. We have the right-wing Christian War On Women. Then there’s Islam with their no respect and/or regard for women. Religion is dangerous for women. I always thought religion, (Christianity), was dangerous for people of African descent. There are people who thought Black people from Africa were cursed all because of some guy named Ham. This biblical person means nothing to me but my slave ancestors have caught Hell for it for 400 years. [“Fundamentalists recognize what Machiavelli and Plato understood: religion can be used to legitimize power.” –From the book I’m reading, ‘Price of Honor’ by Jan Goodwin (1994)]

Religion is dangerous!
