Feminists’ Bogus ‘War on Women’ Battered In November Elections

The feminists’ bogus “war on women” took a beating in the November elections. That’s why they’ve been so quietly lately.

The phony war on women narrative was only ever really a war on those who believe women should have to pay for their own birth control, and those who are opposed to abortion. But the war was ginned-up with the non-existent pay gap, and the phony campus rape crisis.

The beat-down is largely because feminism does not live up to its definition. And it does not represent most women.

Today’s feminism is victimization; it encourages blaming other people for mistakes, bad choices, and failures. The problem today is that feminists now push public policy.

Last week a feminist professor said that America should stop putting all women in jail, for any crime.

Campus Reform reported, “Patricia O’Brien, an assistant professor at the University of Illinois’s Jane Addam’s College of Social Work, contends that the majority of women in prison are merely non-violent, poorly educated, unemployed, and abused, according to her op-ed in The Washington Post.

Campus Rape is not an epidemic

California has achieved another first-in-the-nation policy: The Legislature and Gov. Brown have embraced the feminist notion that women claiming rape should always be believed, and more importantly, never questioned.

Concurrently, all presumption of innocence of young males, and “innocent until proven guilty,” has been casually, and unconstitutionally, tossed aside.

In July,  State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson held a talk “about her work on a crucial feminist priority–standing up to sexual violence.” Sen. Jackson is the face of feminist movement. She claims to see feminist issues in nearly every state policy.

Signed into law by Gov. Brown, Senate Bill 967, by Sen. President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, reclassifies consensual sex on college campuses as “rape.” Jackson was a huge proponent of de Leon’s bill.

This virtual wave of campus rape in fact, does not exist. What spurred this bill was a program by the White House, which declared sex crimes to be “epidemic” on U.S. college campuses. The White House claims one in five students is a victim of sexual assault while in college.

This dubious figure has become an article of faith and rallying cry among radical feminists pushing government intervention into colleges’ handling of sexual assault claims.

Islam and feminism

While Feminists in the United States whine about job inequality, they remain silent about the brutality waged upon women by Islam.

In Nigeria and Iraq, Muslim armies are selling women as slaves. ISIS holds Yazidi women as sex slaves, then sell them for $25, according to Robert Spencer.

“ISIS was more direct about it and beheaded a woman who resisted one of its fighters,” said Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Magazine.

Iran hanged a 26-year-old woman hanged for refusing to be raped.

“The horrors aren’t confined to the Middle East. A sex grooming scandal in the UK involved the rape of thousands of girls. The rapists were Muslim men so instead of talking about it, the UK’s feminists created and sold $75 shirts reading, ‘This is what a feminist looks like.’ The t-shirts were actually being made by Third World women who live sixteen to a room,” said Daniel Greenfield.

Meanwhile the feminist cause du jour in the US is “Gamergate,” a controversy over video games.

Race and gender pimps

There is very little difference between race-baiter Al Sharpton and professional feminists – they all pimp their causes just to keep themselves in the public eye.

However, the truth is that professional feminists know that there just aren’t that many women who identify as feminists. And they are not successfully recruiting young women. Polls have found that the majority of women view feminism negatively — even among young women.

Real women

There will be more than 100 women in the House and Senate, for the first time in history. The ‘war on women’ doesn’t seem to have dampened the spirits of women in politics.

Yet the national political results today are a far cry from the Obama administration’s weird video of The Life of Julia,” in 2012.

The Obama webpage has since been taken down.  But using the wayback machine, here is the link.

The Life of Julia” tells the story dependent, helpless, pathetic woman who depends on cradle-to-grave socialistic government assistance to function.

She attends Head Start, a universal Pre-kindergarten program, which has been a colossal, very expensive failure.

She attends state public schools, and then state college.

Julia mysteriously has a child without a husband, and eventually starts the cradle-to-grave socialism cycle all over again. She eventually retires and has to rely on Social Security.

It is amazing that Barack Obama felt so embarrassed about “The Life of Julia” he deleted it from his web site… once he got reelected.

This welfare state requires that women be dependent, and that men be broken.

How is welfare-pimping, feminism?

The biggest problem with feminists is selfishness. The feminist message has always been “me, me, me.” Women were told for decades they didn’t need men, shouldn’t be expected to have children, and deserved to be the Chairperson of the Board. Remember all of the studies and news about breaking the glass ceiling? Female politicians still obsess about this.

And, even more importantly, the unmistakable message was women should never let anything or anyone get in the way of the goals so richly deserved.

But life doesn’t work that way. It’s messy and complicated, and rewarding and full of joy.

Progressive liberal women think taking money from productive men to raise children without fathers sired by unproductive men is not only acceptable, but appropriate. Women appear to be so self-centered that they don’t question the damage they are doing to the rest of the society.

Professional Feminists

Professional feminists have an agenda that is not about helping women. It is not about stopping rape. It is not about lifting poor women out of poverty and dependence, and into opportunities. No, professional feminism is about exploiting women to fight a culture war that does not exist.
