You're thinking simplistically. I said there were 2 sides of the feminist movement, as of all movements. One was the legitimate organic rising up of people demanding their rights. The other was the govt's manipulation of movements.<quoted text>
So, why, when Barros Serrano says the same things about the 1960s-70s woman's movement do you say "ditto" and then tell me I am all wrong, clueless and speaking wrongly on behalf of "all women".
The govt created the false image of the BPP as violent and threatening to white people. The reality was something else. There are 2 images. I choose to believe the REAL one, rather than the propaganda lie.
Feminism is the same thing. The twisted women's rights into: yes, be equal and equally oppressed, still worship the boss, get piercings (we'll allow that now, unlike in the 60's) and be an individual but within the constraints of the capitalist social relations of production (Marxist term). Then they used it to shove all the housewives into the workplace. Oh look, your rent just went up, your wages are stagnant, your Union is virtually dead, and we're raising prices on everything. You get out there and work your asses off, now, America, because we're number one...
Meanwhile their kids run loose, and the system tells women, and this was my point, some dysfunctional corporate-serving crap about what makes them free(willingly leap into the same old objectification represented in my comment as pole dancing).
Women should NOT be discriminated against in employment and education, as they were through the 60's. Nor should they be subject to sexist ignorance and malfeasance by the medical field and in the legal system, which they were. A woman's rapist would get off because the jury leered at her as the defense attorney sneers,And just how much SKIN were you showing with THAT outfit on??? Hmmmm....
You have to learn to sort out the REAL peoples' resistance from the system's manipulation of it. They manipulated EVERYTHING.
