I don’t care how many women Cuomo tried to diddle or whether he is inappropriate to the opposite sex, which I have already covered here and here. It’s not a crime to be a sleaze ball.
For all the accusations against the admittedly smarmy, rude, and marble-mouthed mayor, why are we supposed to care that the feminazis on the left have their panties in a bunch?
I care a lot more about why America’s mayor thought it was okay to kill someone’s granny.
As I have argued before, if you are sexually assaulted, you file a report. It’s a crime. If you are in the workplace, report the harassment. You have a mouth, so speak up already. Whatever happened to, “I am woman here me roar?”
Today’s young women are encouraged in academia and in culture to believe all male sexual banter and advances are a crime, which has only served to make these women believe they are victims of men everywhere all the time.
Even feminist and scholar Camille Paglia takes issue with today’s brand of feminism. Writing in Salon, Paglia says, “Hillary has unfortunately adopted the Steinem brand of blame-men-first feminism, which defines women as perpetual victims requiring government protections.”
Worse, this brand of feminism subconsciously teaches women to put up with disrespect.
Paglia, a feminist and lesbian, is unabashedly pro men and is a loud critic of modern feminism. She believes women need to stop blaming men and become self-reliant, independent and accept that they are differences between men and women that cannot be changed.
One would reasonably expect that this generation wouldn’t have become deer in the headlights when confronting inappropriate sexual gestures or suggestions. But you would be wrong.
In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Paglia talks about the current culture of blaming and shaming men years after an incident.
“As I have written, there is no excuse for well-educated, upper-middle-class professional women to let offenses to their dignity go by. You must draw the line when it happens. It’s absurd that you feel too powerless, you can’t complain. These people, women who say that, are simply putting the career advantage over the larger question of feminist issues and the protection of women.”
When I was still in the glow of my own youth, you bet I had some awkward, squeamish, and uninvited comments or advances I had to deal with. And guess what? I dealt with it. My mother didn’t raise a fool or a wall flower.
And this is the crux of the issue. When biology is ignored, common sense flies the coop. I am all for encouraging women to attain success in their chosen area, but we are hurting them when we are not honest with them about human nature and biology.
We warn women not to jog alone or put themselves into circumstances late at night with strangers, so why are we not being honest with our teens about what they can expect during their different life cycles and how to handle themselves?
If you are a woman in her prime, you will be on the receiving end of some unwanted attention. When biology mixes with an asshole, you get rudeness. Along with the sunshine, there’s gonna be a little rain sometime Parton warned.
I don’t really follow Hollywood stars unless it is to make fun of them, but Fox News thought it was actually newsworthy that Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, gets approached by men on the streets who say inappropriate things.
Although it was a veiled and shameless way for her to draw attention to her own sexual power, it was refreshing to see her not crying victim and handling it with humor:
“Walked my dogs… per usual,” she wrote on Instagram. “Had a few men approach me, saying the typical inappropriate things.”
“Now all I have to do is say, ‘I have 6 children’ and they practically go running away. If you ever need to get out of an awkward situation, I’ll lend you the rights to pretend claim my children as yours (from afar) and it works like a charm,” Baldwin wrote.
Baldwin expertly proves my point. The #Metoo movement isn’t about empowerment but turning women into victims when they encounter a naughty man.
The entire #Metoo movement is a poor excuse for not knowing your own worth and how to handle yourself in “awkward” situations, such as the one Baldwin just commented on. It’s really that simple.
It’s called learning to navigate in the real world, something puppet president Joe Biden doesn’t have a clue about.
In remarks he delivered Wednesday at an Equal Pay event, Biden said there isn’t a single thing a man can do that a woman can’t do better:
“Let me make one more point. You know, I’ve told my daughters, granddaughters from the time they [were] old enough to understand what I was saying — and I mean it: There’s not a single thing a man can do that a woman can’t do as well or better,” Biden continued. “Not a single thing.”
Bahaha. There is so much wrong with this statement coming from this pedophilic predator’s mouth, I wouldn’t even know where to unpack it and still remain on topic. So I’ll just go for the red meat.
I don’t see too many women able to haul heavy steel drums every day as part of their job, manhandle heavy equipment, dig ditches, or dangle from skyscrapers. To be sure, there are probably a few women who can handle some tough physical jobs day after day, I just haven’t met them.
Perhaps this is just low-hanging fruit on my part—the obvious physical differences—but point proven. It’s also why transgender men (or what I like to call a man in a dress) shouldn’t be on a woman’s sports team.
So the world—and Biden—wants these young women today to know they can be and do anything they like but universally fail to acknowledge the big pink elephant in the room.
If you can succeed at anything as a woman but are unable to defend yourself against rude come-ons and disrespectful behavior from greasy men such as eat-the-whole-sausage Cuomo, how is this empowering?
It’s talking out both sides of your mouth and it’s maddening that these women on the howling left don’t see the contradiction.
Women are the weaker sex, but that doesn’t mean lesser. All power isn’t equal. I learned this when the bloom left my own rose. You know, the time when women begin to feel invisible? To my surprise, I never realized I had sexual privilege until I didn’t.
I never had a clue I was being treated differently as a young and attractive woman until I was no longer young and attractive. My treatment by strangers was just my perception of how the world responded to me, even sometimes rude men.
If you really think about it, this is an enormous mystical power men don’t possess. It’s a different power, not a better one, and it’s why many men work so hard to earn the admiration of women in their sexual prime.
“Old school feminism, coveting social power, is blind to woman’s cosmic sexual power. ”
Rather than women being encouraged to wilt like a rose because a man was mean and naughty to her and crawl out of the woodwork decades after an incident to sully a man’s reputation, maybe we should teach her how to stand her ground and get a little sassy.
Look, it is uncomfortable when a man makes unwanted comments, and I am the first to admit, it does “feel” much like an assault. Only because it immediately gets your adrenaline up because it is a threat–to your personhood and peace of mind. It comes uninvited.
You can be minding your own business, running out to pick up detergent to get your laundry done when you are suddenly made into the object of some man’s overactive sexual libido. And I’m not talking about men taking a casual interest in you or an appreciative smile, but overt and rude comments.
It’s uncomfortable, irritating, and off-putting. It’s not okay, okay? But it isn’t really any different than dealing with other bad human behaviors we learn to handle throughout life.
I am not defending assholes or “blaming the victim.” We should call men out loudly and publicly on inappropriate behavior in the moment–not years or decades later. You must take personal responsibility for how you navigate life. This is true empowerment.
Young women should stop embracing being a victim and learn to put inappropriate men in their place, vocally and immediately. Staying silent only rewards the creepy, the entitled, and the predator.
In other words, stop waiting on a government savior, expecting different treatment, or being afraid of men and learn to fight like a real girl. It’s a lot more fun. #Reignwell
