Dare I say it...
Capitalism Ate Feminism
I want to celebrate what makes us most feminine-
Things that men can't do-
like giving birth-
being a wife and mother—
our virtuous qualities-
and focus on how we can make those beautiful abilities easier on women—
Women’s health, the right to chose, hormonal health, domestic support and protection — sexual health, and prosperity in Love-
Women are not interested in the Male power struggle—
Putting women into the workforce reduced wages (around late 70's onward)
And made us slaves to the work force—
Does a middle class woman want to be a garbage man- or a high voltage line worker?— probably not. - It is the wealthier class that wishes to 'break glass ceilings' for a more lucrative or better position at work?
I don't get it.
I don't believe we are any happier this way.
Let men be men- and let women be women-
Women competing with men- does not help us— We have better things to do- like being mothers.
Men need to protect us-
stay committed as best they can (we are human),
and care for us and our children properly.
that is what makes a man sexy to me—
I need a real MAN-
so, I can be a Woman-
We are different for good reasons.
We need each other like puzzle pieces.
To inspire greatness in each other.
It is much more sensual-
to be who we are—
and, It also won't
emasculate men- (my mom said it's not a great idea to make more money than your man/ if you do- don't tell him? Ha!)
This makes the sexual dynamic stronger—
and with better sex-
comes happier couples —
War is not feminine-
and just because we are women-
we are not all aligned with each other—
you wouldn’t see me hugging Madeleine Albright-
who said killing families in IRAQ was ok—
That is not feminine—
to put any child at risk?—
War is for men-
it is born of Ego’s and shallow thinking-
and as an activist for the planet,
and all it’s living beings—
Nuclear war will not be good for the environment-
I don’t think money is feminine—
It is a scam—
The most important thing to me is Love-
It is what everyone needs in any class of people-
We have gotten off track-
and have not looked after our children well enough-
we have abandoned them-
had others raise them,
We have lost empathy for
people less fortunate—
and the elderly—
and for what?
I am not a conformist,
or an airhead—
I don’t share everyone’s views—
Just because some people have strong views it doesn't make them an authority.
I think for myself-
I don’t expect people to agree with me-
I’m aware It’s a risky perspective-
I am a woman-
Who is learning all I can,
which transcends into my priorities …
How to be a better woman—
softer, sexier… forgiving,
That’s my goal-
and, it is a pleasurable pursuit…
