The Real War on Women

December 07, 2012

• Believing there is no problem for the best professional female golfer to compete in the men’s tournament but also think that means the worst pro male gets to participate in the ladies’ tournament, then obviously you have no idea what the word “parity” means and are filled with Sapphic scorn.

• Believing, saying, or even thinking that women are often other women’s worst enemies is more proof of your chauvinism and that you are femme-ferocious.

• Believing the phrase “War On Women” is completely contrived and to the extent there actually is a war on women white men are the best allies women have anywhere in the world and they better get their damn heads screwed on straight before it’s too late because many women really do have a hell of a lot to fear in this violent globe, and setting up straw-man opponents to avoid dealing with the reality is only a self-serving vanity masking deep-seated cowardice shows, you guessed it, that you hate women.

Sadly, since I do believe some (though not all) of the above, it is clear I fit the definition. So now that my reputation is completely ruined (except among other women who actually know me and are thus obviously in no position to judge my merits) let me say a few words about this great battle.

Watching television the night of the presidential election one could clearly make out a teary-eyed young woman being embraced from behind by another “youth.” Now, the hard truth—but for the massive police presence in Chicago that evening at this particular venue our little doe-eyed innocent would far more likely be enjoying only the cold embrace of death.

Without too much detail, there are certain statistics (those damn numbers again) which demonstrably convey who are the lethal threats on the killing field for women who look like Margaret Hoover.

Recently, crime reporter Nancy Grace broke the (literal) blackout in the media on the Knoxville Horror. Watch the video and see who are the actual “haters” and who are the victims. It is a particularly gruesome story, but one generally replicated in the hundreds of thousands every year. It is more than likely being reenacted somewhere this very moment. The perpetrator is not an “old white male” but a young black one.

Admittedly, those “old (and even young) white men” say offensive things from time to time and make comments not intrinsically offensive but conveyed in clumsy and inarticulate ways. Yet in the aggregate, it stops there. As far as war criminals go, the “old white male” is more Tokyo Rose than Unit 731. In fact, you could even say that if the “War on Women” had a face, it would look very much like this one.

In all this kerfuffle things such as common sense, rational thought, and logical deduction have absolutely no place (that is, unless you happen to live in the three-fourths of the world as yet uninfected by such hysterical war whoops). Using any combination of the above does nothing more than demonstrate that you are hopelessly mired in patriarchal battle tactics and have no idea how real women wage warfare.

These days, “feminism” only means having the same opinion as the loudest dame in the room.
