I received this piece from one of our readers and I thought that he raised some interesting points which perhaps may be worth commenting on.
Wednesday 22nd of September and I am awoken by BBC Radio 4 as I often am with some worrying news. It seems that Radio 4 take great delight in depressing the population only this time it has a rather portentous flavour to its item.
It seems that for the first time in history a majority female government has been formed which although in its self doesn’t seem to offer too much in the way of concern gathers a rather scary synthesis if you connect this fact with what might happen in other countries if this governmental gender alignment was achieved.
The female government of Sweden is remarkable as they (women) have had the vote for only 40 years. I know little of the country outside the watch/ski/army knife stereotype and do not wish to know anymore but if it can happen in that conglomerate of tongues it could happen here.
What’s wrong with that you may ask? You men with a lack personal politic, your heads in the clouds, thinking to yourself, a majority female government would only introduce free sanitary products, allow haphazard parking to be legal and offer free tissues to be distributed for the breaking out in tears at any time syndrome. However insignificant and silly these sexist stereotypes surrounding the so called fair sex are, they could also be the blinkers that we need to discard if we wish to retain our liberty.
If that’s what you think a majority British female government would act like then think again: how about this for a reality. Harriet Harman Prime Minister, Home sectary Jackie Smith, Chancellor of the exchequer Fiona Mactaggart. The police force Commissioner Julie Bindle, Director General of the BBC Joan Smith.
I might be exaggerating the Bindel/Smith threat but not the others. They have all been in the past cabinet ministers and only the fact they there were a minority (and in Mactaggart’s case being openly mad) within the government and within their own party stopping them from their clear agenda to openly criminalise men who buy sex and by doing this subjugate and silence women who sell it.
Libertine men have a real dilemma. The majority of us wish for real equality with women. We after all recognise the importance of sex workers not only in helping us shake off the stress and pressure of this unfair world but also that they do a great deal of social good helping the disabled population and their own families as well. As a consequence it would be a little nonsensical for us to argue for a return of patriarchal inequality this being the philosophy which is so closely linked to church, state and hypocrisy.
So what to do? We all know about unfair laws against men in matters around housing, children and the courts as well as the reporting and publicity around rape cases. We argue about these unfair facts without coming across as misogynistic and must continue to do so.
Yet we must be aware that gender is only biological and for that biology to have a voice it must be clothed in the ideological and feminist ideology is ultimately reactionary.
I spoke to an American Journalist who described herself as a pro sex feminist. She was pro woman, pro sex worker and pro male: But I fear that her wing of the feminist movement is not in the ascendancy as far as that battle for equality is concerned: I hope I am wrong.
In the meantime we must increase the awareness of the right wing nature of the feminazi movement and keep our eyes open. We do not want to be like the hare in the fable and realise too late that the underestimated tortoise has crossed the line. A harsh lesson it would be especially from behind the bars of a prison.
