This Online Page Creates Satirical Memes Replacing The Word ‘Woman’ With ‘Man’ To Show How Absurd Sexism Is

Okay, so…

I just talked to my granddaughter a little while ago.  She said she’s afraid to go out alone.  Everything she sees and hears, tells her more women are being raped, or murdered.  Men are breaking into houses and not caring who sees them.  She said, it’s terrible.  So many women are afraid.   No place is safe.  She said she only goes out when her boyfriend is with her (they live together).  She stopped swimming, taking walks or doing any of the things she loves to do.

It makes me sick.  Really sick, to hear her say things like that.  I’m SO enraged that women are forced, by evil and hateful men, to live like prisoners.  Living in constant fear is unhealthy and it KILLS DREAMS.  It literally kills females, of course, but no one really seems to care.  If they cared, something would be done to STOP it from CONSTANTLY HAPPENING.   Fear destroys their innocence, their trust, their freedom and their hopes and DREAMS.  FEAR makes the lives of women SMALL.

There was NOTHING I could say to make her feel better without putting her in DANGER.  I couldn’t tell her NOT TO BE AFRAID.  I couldn’t tell her she would be OKAY.  I couldn’t tell her that NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN TO HER.  All I could tell her was that I understood and that all women live under the constant threat of violence.

I hate this.  Everyone female alive should hate this and even those who are dead should hate this.  And every single male, who is not violent and insane, should hate this as well.

This is the world we ALLOW to exist.  This is the never ending war between women and men.  This is the true and played out hatred of an entire gender, by the other half.

Wheels, gears and cogs…a poem

black and brown wooden wall decor

the wheels
and gears
turn
but we don’t get
any smarter
not about what matters
we build better
THINGS
like guns
and other weapons
instead of building
TRUST
KINDNESS
and
EQUALITY
sadly
I don’t think
our species
is capable
of those things
on a grand scale
we are death
to living things
as the wheels
and cogs
gears
and guns
keep getting made
because that’s
what’s important
to the men in charge
to the men
we have allowed
to threaten
and destroy
all life
on this planet

Texan Valedictorian Addresses The State’s Anti-Abortion Bill After Dropping Her Approved Speech At The Last Minute

If this doesn’t make you sick, you need to look again…

Monks, Praying, Prayer, Bangkok, Asia

Okay, so…

We live in a completely patriarchal world.   Everything we think, see, or even believe, is male.  They run the show and…if you’re thinking...here she goes again…that’s exactly what patriarchy wants you to think.  Women have been brainwashed into thinking that what they’ve been told is real, when it’s NOT.  They have been taught to believe that what people like me say about THEM, makes me a bitch, or a nagging bitch, for even bringing this up…again.

When I write short stories where a woman stabs a man, I can assume that at least one, or two, women frowns upon it, or think that I’m bitter, a man hater, or any number of things, and that’s fine with me. I’ve been called a lot worse, believe me.

The thing is, women have been taught to protect men, to let them get away with beating, raping, and killing us, and even putting us in houses to work and raise kids, while they enjoy the world outside and have all the freedom they want.  But hey…that’s what THEY want us to do, and they have made the world in such a way, that women believe that’s what we’re SUPPOSED to do too.  It’s NOT.  We get the jobs they don’t want.  Remember that.

As for writers, take poet Charles Bukowski (he’s dead now).  He’s vile and treats women like GARBAGE, things to be used and called disgusting names.  He’s pretty much a moron.  People read him.  They love him, especially men.  But what female poets write about men the same way?  See, women aren’t SUPPOSED to do that to men.  They aren’t ALLOWED to write that way.  When they do, the punishment can be severe.  Their career destroyed, name calling shows up immediately…man hater (which I love because no one calls male writers, women haters…EVER).  And, critics will pretty much destroy women with words.  Women cannot hate men the way men can freely hate women.  It’s simply not allowed.

Men do the most horrendous things to women in real life, in books, in films, in VIDEO GAMES, pretty much everywhere they can, but women, are supposed to be NICE, or at least SHUT THE FUCK UP!

We really aren’t  ALL nice.  We’ve simply been silenced, written out of history, and pretty much ERASED.  That might be okay with you, but it’s not okay with me.

Men are in control and they don’t want us to have any power at all.  So, they make sure we don’t have it.  You can tell because you can name the handful of women whose names you might recognize (most of them will be ancient).  Even Mary Cassatt, the only female, American Impressionist, isn’t mentioned 99% of the time for even BEING THERE, let alone working the same way the MEN were.   The MEN get all the credit and MUSUEM SPACE.

So, if I kill off a few men, now and then, I think it’s only fair.  I don’t torture them, lock them in a room in a basement, beat them, chain them to anything, rape or cut them, I don’t do all the things men do to women, so I think I’m allowed to stab a guy who won’t let a woman have her tea in a cafe, at least once in awhile.

Women are just now learning about their own herstory.  It’s sketchy because a lot of information was lost, or never written down.  Plus women’s names have been lost, having taken the names of their husband.  ERASED.

Here’s the thing.  Women writers are locked into two positions.  They can write stories that are acceptable to patriarchy, or they can write how they feel and be condemned as a shrew, and destroyed.  See, that’s how men have us shut us up, with no way out.  Fortunately, there are more options for women today, but it’s still difficult and most women won’t read what other women are writing, if it’s about serious issues, instead of novels, romance and otherwise.  Women don’t want to know, or else they just don’t care.  Maybe, they just don’t want to deal with the fact that their lives have been stolen from them and they didn’t even realize it.  And, most women just won’t believe it.  They also won’t believe that things could be, or should be, any different.

The overwhelming majority of men do not read books written by women.  They don’t have to.  Boys don’t want to read books they believe are written for girls.  That’s because females don’t matter, don’t count, and are despised.  Believe it or not, it’s still true.  Girls and women read books written by men all the time.  We should stop that.   We should support women authors and see what happens to male authors, when WOMEN STOP READING THEM.  Maybe that will wake them up a little, since more women than men actually read.  I very rarely buy books written by men, unless they are about science, or a particular artist.  I always buy books written by women.  I wish I could get women to stop supporting men, so they could see what kind of power we actually have in the marketplace.  But see, patriarchy has taught us that male is better, more intelligent, blah, blah, blah…but it’s NOT.  Women are ALWAYS taught to support men, especially over other women.  Gag!

Anyway, no one will care.  They rarely do.  Try getting a man in your life to read your favorite female author.  Not a romance novel, or Pride and Prejudice, something violent and fast. Good luck.

Oh, and it’s not just female writers, it’s artists too.  It’s in everything.  Including how we dress, stand POSE, smile, talk and look.

So, that’s what I’ve been thinking about today.  How about you?

 

The rich man…

money doesn’t make you bigger
not having it doesn’t make you smaller
when the rich man is dead
his bones look like everyone else’s
because he IS exactly
like everyone else
but for his delusions
of grandeur
and conceit
but the witches
still live
and the curses
are still cast
and the rich man
the controlling man
the one who cares not
for others
the one who thinks
women belong to him
will reap what what sows
because his forefathers
couldn’t kill us all

Okay, so…choice

 

Here’s the thing.  Anyone with a working brain cell knows that people cannot be stopped from doing what they want to do.  Think prohibition.  Think anything you like, even speeding.  Nothing stops us.  All the morons who make the rules do, is drive things underground.  Nothing STOPS because they say it should.

Few stopped drinking, during prohibition, but the speakeasies and the mob made a lot of money, of which the government surely got its cut.  Prohibition just made a lot of people rich.  It also made drinking more exciting and dangerous but it didn’t stop it.

The government will NEVER stop women from having abortions.  Before Roe v Wade they had them.  They’ve always had them.  They will NEVER stop having them and they will die having them, if proper medical care is unavailable, which is the price women are expected to pay for having sex in the first place, even if they are raped.  The miserable, ugly, mean, disgusting, hateful, controlling, horrific, males who are in charge of things have no right to tell a woman which medical procedures she can, or cannot have.  That’s between a woman and her doctor.

The right wing morons blew up medical clinics last time, even though clients went there to be treated for cancer and other diseases.  They harassed doctors, blocking their home driveways and threatening them, as well as their families.  They KILLED doctors.  Blew up office workers.  See, they don’t actually care about the fetus, or life in general, they care ABOUT CONTROLLING WOMEN.

The fewer women who have control over their bodies the fewer threats the miserable morons will have to fear.  And really, this is all about fear and freedom.  Handmaids Tale was no joke.  Margaret Atwood also said, ‘MEN ARE AFRAID WOMEN WILL LAUGH AT THEM AND WOMEN ARE AFRAID MEN WILL KILL THEM.”  Well, they will kill them and they won’t care.  It’s once again, PUNISHMENT for having sex.  The men in charge are immoral human beings, who feel god-like and hand down edicts to the masses as if they have the right to do so.

This country hates women.  We are always at war, even if some women have been trained and brainwashed to reject that truth.  Everything that happens here proves how much we are despised.  We are not in the Constitution and the ERA has to pass in one state at a time, if that state feels like letting it pass.  We have no laws that punish men for rape, beating women, killing them, not paying child support, or paying them less for the same work the men do.  The things they call laws are as useless as the non-bullying rules in schools.  They’re a joke.  Men literally get away with murder.

So, hangers and knitting needles will come back.  Back alley abortions will return and the ugly, miserable hateful, ratbasterds will sit back and smile at how many of us they kill.  Young girls will die.  Becky Bell, the teenage girl whose name is on the bracelet I wear, died from an illegal abortion.

MEN DON’T CARE THAT WOMEN DIE THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT CONTROLLING THEM.

Women are abused by the society in which we live, at every turn.  Brainwashed into believing that WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING, while men are told they can do as they please.

The first rule of FREEDOM, as far as I’m concerned, is having the right to do what you want to do with YOUR OWN BODY.

THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT OWN US.  WE DO NOT BELONG TO THE GOVERNMENT AND THEY DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL US WHAT TO DO WITH OUR BODIES.

Kids will die.  NOT THE BOYS, of course, BUT THE GIRLS WILL START DYING AGAIN.

The kids of those who vote to kill R v Wade won’t die.  They can get as many abortions as they like because they don’t have to live by the rules and stupid illegal laws their ugly, hateful, disgusting fathers hand down to the masses.  Their mothers can have as many as they like as well.

I believe that every woman who dies from an illegal abortion should be placed on the lawn of the White House.  Seeing is believing.  We aren’t numbers and statistics.  We OWN our own bodies.

I made the t-shirt (above)  last time they messed with us in ’89.   They treat us like cattle because that’s what they believe we are.  I’m going to wear my shirt again.  I thought I wouldn’t have to do that but I’m getting all my old Choice shirts out AGAIN.  Because WOMEN HAVE NO VOICE AND WOMEN HAVE NO RIGHTS.

Poor women are going to have a bad time of it again.  They always do but the ugly, disgusting, morons in washington don’t care about poor people, THAT’S WHY POOR PEOPLE EXIST.

MEN NEED TO FIGHT TO KEEP WOMEN AND GIRLS SAFE.  But they won’t.  They never do.  This isn’t their problem.  They don’t get pregnant.  They get to walk away, like they alway get to walk away.  They never die because they are desperate and afraid.  NEVER.

NOT ONE SINGLE MALE HAS EVER DIED FROM AN ILLEGAL ABORTION! NOT ONE.

Think about that.  Males are making the laws for something that has absolutely NOTHING AT ALL to do with them, or with their bodies.

 

Horrifying how much men hate women…and their fear and hatred leads to death and misery but they don’t care as long as they believe they can control us…

The thing is wealthy women can get safe abortions, the ones married to the men who vote against them.  They can always fly to France or any other more enlightened and less hatefully sexist countries and have a mini vacation and get things taken care of.  It’s poor women and teenagers who suffer and often die because of UGLY, hateful men who despise them.
