Beauty Or The Beast?
Feminism has become a worldwide phenomenon. United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Italy, Germany, and others battle feminists' agendas. The president of NOW (National Organization for Women) has defined feminism as the radical belief that women have rights. Webster Dictionary (1969) defined feminism as simply "the doctrine advocating extension of the activities of women in social and political life." Webster Dictionary (1986) defines feminism as: "(1) feminine qualities; (2) the principle that women should have political, economic, and social rights equal to those of men; and (3) the movement to win such rights for women."
Effeminate is defined as: "(1) having the qualities generally attributed to woman, as weakness, timidity, delicacy, etc.: unmanly; not virile; (2) characterized by such qualities: weak, soft, decadent, etc. SYN - female.
How did "feminism" get such a grip on societies around the world? One has only to look at our own feminist movement started in the 60s; and how definitions have changed in 17 years. Add gender biased laws passed over the last 12 years rendering males helpless legally. Propaganda began with "male bashing." Every male had to find his "feminine" side. "Insensitive men" were given politically correct labels which included chauvinist, deadbeat dads, batterers, rapists, and sexual predators.
Media blitzes and feminist literature beat up men who worked long hours. Men didn't spend enough time with their children, wives, or girlfriends. A requirement of a good father was mandatory attendance at birthing classes and birth of children. To insure future feminists goals, bonding became important for feminists. "Bonding" and "quality time" were new buzz words used by feminists.
Fathers experienced fatherhood from a new perspective unknown to their predecessors. It became apparent fathers did make great parents. In time, children would become "pawns" and "tools" feminists would use to control their man.
Criticism, control, and sensitivity indoctrination persisted until almost every male trait was eliminated. Men started to exhibit effeminate traits. Being "male" was no longer socially acceptable. While tearing down male traits, women set out to "fight for equality." "Being fulfilled" was the feminist slogan. Women took on male roles and personality traits. Family/children became less important to women. Nurturing and upbringing of children was left to day care centers. Men attempted to conform to a politically correct definition of "male." It became impossible for men to reach an ever changing feminist definition of "male."
"Gentlemen" was politically incorrect. Male traits were unacceptable unless they were found in women.
Role reversal took on a more public forum of subliminal indoctrination. Politically correct buzz words made their appearance into tv, newspapers, and movies. Extensive media coverage of batterers, rapists, stalkers, and "deadbeat dads" made sure of public indoctrination.
Laws long overdue were passed in the 60's to early 80's to protect women. By 1990s, these laws had become a way to control men. Men became intimidated and fearful of false allegations. False allegations rise 80% during a divorce.
Somewhere in 70s/80s, feminists adopted the socialist ideology of "brute presumption" in passing and enforcing laws. This socialist philosophy intentionally did not consider all relevant facts; or attempt a reasonably balanced decision as put forth in our Constitution.
One good example of brute presumption is false allegations of child abuse and/or domestic violence (Zero Tolerance Laws). Family court became a place to test how far a woman could take brute presumption. Courts generally go on the sole word of a woman. In most cases, no evidence is required to prove false allegation. Consequently, innocent men are being convicted and incarcerated.
Family court is the feminists best ally in their creation of a "fatherless society." Family court is a ferocious battleground leaving carnage all through its halls of justice. A perfected legal forum to control fathers/children emotionally and financially. Men have been reduced to a legally intimidated, frightened, and meek population. Men afraid of gender biased laws enforced by a pro-female legal system.
You won't hear on any news about a Family Violence Survey showing almost as many men are abused as women. Surveys show only 16% of families in the U.S. do experience violence, most which takes the form of slapping, shoving, and grabbing by both parties during an argument. What TV network would dare speak these "truths" and incur ultra-feminist wrath?
Fathers whisper in secret about their fears of being falsely accused and imprisoned. Their lives ruined by pointing of fingers and untruths spoken. Does this sound vaguely familiar - one wrong word and you go to concentration camp?
Feminists command a powerful political base. Their goal is to create a "village without fathers." Lobbying is fierce to pass even more gender biased laws. N.O.W.'s Campaign 2000 slogan is to elect more "real" feminists.
Politicians are painfully aware of feminist political power. A major victory for feminists is the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) written for women. It includes no protection for men. EXAMPLE: In many states, a simple yelling match between husband and wife will get the husband thrown in jail, not the wife. Police must arrest, even if there is no evidence of violence. Feminists certainly have come a long way, baby!
Society seems unwilling to admit men have been reduced to bank accounts, sperm banks, doormats, and innocent criminals. How are children faring in this "feminist utopia" - (fatherless home)? The Bureau of Census reports that 63% of child suicides are from fatherless homes. The Center for Disease Control reports 85% of all children who exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes. The National Principals Association Report on The State of High Schools states that 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
Nope! You won't see much media coverage on mothers abusing and killing their children. We must believe "mothers make the best parent." Recent studies show women commit 65% of child abuse. No media coverage on "truths" - not feminist approved!
Here's another example of socialistic brute presumption. Child Support Enforcement laws allow for no adjustments in payments for "unintentional loss of income/employment" due to unusual circumstances. So a man losing his job is no excuse for not paying his child support--he goes to jail. No evidence has to be considered, because there is no jury trial. Fathers are made into felons. No trial, no evidence. Remind you of anything?
"Deadbeat dads" --the most successful of all buzz words ever created by feminists. It sticks in everyone's mind. Labeled as such, fathers are treated as criminals even when they pay their child support. Feminized media is unrelenting in reporting inaccurate and false statistics.
Innocent fathers are put in maximum security, shackled, cuffed and strip searched for supposed non-payment of child support. Many calculations of child support and arrearage have been artificially created by our feminized courts. Child support payments are arbitrarily increased without proof of "real" income. Increased amounts are backdated. If a father can't pay instantly, he goes to jail. Time in jail means more arrearage.
In some cases, mothers already make more money than fathers, and collect child support as a second income. Another feminist accomplishment.
40% of custodial mothers admitted to interfering with visitation to punish fathers, according to a recent study by American Journal of Orthopsychiatry. Non-custodial parents must go to court repeatedly to "beg, buy, and sign away their souls" in court to have any glimmer of hope of visiting their children. Feminized fathers are now controlled by their love for their children. Yet no laws exist to punish "intentional denial of visitation."
Who really cares about our children who cry and beg to see their daddies? Children who are put into mental institutions, brutalized, tortured, and sometimes murdered. Children forced to talk to psychiatrists/psychologists who work to help mothers create false memories. End results of "best interests of our children" - brainwashed children who hate their fathers.
Children forced to tell lies of abuse. Brainwashed children whose mothers constantly and daily re-enforce these false "memories" at home. (I thought only P.O.W.s were subjected to brainwashing tactics!) Children forced to rewrite their past, eliminating a father they once loved. Manipulated and brainwashed by professionals and mothers, children are forced to recall false memories solely for mothers to win in court. Maintain status quo at all cost of lives - mommy dearest is always the best parent.
Another feminist accomplishment: Elimination of male related reference words, such as "he" from vocabularies.
Check the wording in a pension plan or insurance brochure for the number of occurances of "he," or any male reference. In the media, commercials today rarely include a father. How many female reporters versus male reporters are reporting the news? Nice accomplishment ultra-feminists! Our sexual harassment laws. I'm certainly glad I'm not a man. A man cannot look at, speak to, or god forbid inadvertently brush against a woman's arm. Now every man must treat women as Chinese royalty - eyes must look down at floor, not gaze upon royalty, and wait for an audience to be granted. This is complete submission of males exhibiting effeminate female qualities of weakness and timidity.
Physical and verbal bullying by girls in school has increased to epidemic proportions. A new generation of truly radical feminists are being indoctrinated. Feminization of our schools has created a new gender gap. Boys are falling behind in school. Girls are making steady gains. Educators fail to recognize, nor care about problems boys are having in school.
Children are suppose to be our greatest assets. Yet they are constantly used by feminists, politicians, and attorneys, whenever there is the need to pass a piece of legislation, win an election, raise money, or increase their bank accounts. When will we really do what is "best for our children"?
Is this what feminism is all about? Is this what women of the 60s wanted their feminist movement to accomplish?? I think not!! We wanted equality. Not total emasculation of males and destruction of our children.
Pearle Harbour's 20th Century Definition of Feminism
(1) the belief that all parents shall be females;
(2) the movement to create a fatherless society, devoid of all male references of any kind;
(3) women shall be the only gender to enjoy the right of voting. Big Brother (Big Sister), Gestapo, Socialism, Communism. We now live in an ultra-feminist society devoid of morality, democracy, justice, and honesty. Is this our new bridge to the 21st Century? Is this the "village" we want?
Pearle Harbour wonders: When will men be men again? When will Fatherhood be restored? When will courts give our children back both parents? When will men speak up and stop "whispering" - huddled and frightened - behind closed doors?
