I have been trying to write a new post for a couple weeks, but, I guess you could call it writer’s block, would not let me. Last night, I had, what I think is, a brilliant line of thought:
The feminist movement is deceitful.
You might be thinking, well, duh, and starting to wonder if I had changed my views since my previous posts on the subject.
I have not. Think about it.
The definition of feminine is: having qualities or appearance traditionally associated with women; of or denoting a gender of nouns and adjectives, conventionally regarded as female (Oxford dictionary). The meaning of the suffix -ist, also according to the Oxford dictionary, is “a follower of a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.”
Based on those definitions, and common sense, a feminist should be the title given to women who embrace their feminine qualities – not to women who want to be a man. Those women should have a different title (see post about Target…)
A true feminist should love the fact that, for example, naturally, we’re better caring for others which encompasses so many jobs and daily tasks – healthcare, teaching little ones, running a household, etc.
Back to the title of this post: I propose that we should start a NEW feminist movement. This movement would recognize our strengths are different than the strengths of men. This movement would not degrade both men and women by claiming we are “equal.” Instead, this movement would encourage freedom for women to be who can and want to be! No more being satisfied with striving to get the same pay as men; now, women will focus on getting paid what they’re worth by practicing and obtaining better negotiating skills to get paid what we’re worth based on our experience and skills. This movement will enhance the natural abilities of women and strengthen our weaknesses.
In conclusion, I think I am now feminist, and from now on, the “women’s rights” movement shall be known as the anti-feminist movement.
