Fox Newsies insist there's no war on women. Yet in a FoxNews.com editorial, author Suzanne Venker - who boasts about not having any professional credentials beyond a messy marriage and a willingness "to speak out about things" she knows "from experience to be true" - argues that there's a war on men. And guess who's waging it? Feminists. So it's no wonder Fox News loves her message.
Venker tells us:
Women aren’t women anymore.
To say gender relations have changed dramatically is an understatement. Ever since the sexual revolution, there has been a profound overhaul in the way men and women interact. Men haven’t changed much – they had no revolution that demanded it – but women have changed dramatically.
In a nutshell, women are angry. They’re also defensive, though often unknowingly. That’s because they’ve been raised to think of men as the enemy. Armed with this new attitude, women pushed men off their pedestal (women had their own pedestal, but feminists convinced them otherwise) and climbed up to take what they were taught to believe was rightfully theirs.
That's right, ladies. The sexual revolution, according to "You-Don't-Need-No-Stinkin'-Professional" Venker, has turned women into angry harridans who have pushed man repellants. Venker can't seem to find one good thing to say about feminism. She posits that if women would just behave more like women and "surrender" to their femininity, "marriageable men will come out of the woodwork."
Can there be any doubt that Venker will get lots of sympathetic airtime on Fox News in which to discuss her "interesting" and/or "controversial" theory?
H/T Think Progress
Oh, and the whole deal about how clinics that deal specifically with women’s health issues should be shut down- but only the men should be allowed to talk about it.
Or how about when your boyfriend/husband beats you, and the police decide that, despite being covered with cuts, bruises and barely able to move… you’re the one on trial?
Oh, and (this is my personal favourite, BTW), a career woman can only climb the ladder if she has no problem enabling the mistreatment of the women who work in the trenches under her loft.
Oh, but the fight for our rights only benefits men- something about it made it easy for them to sleep around?
Congratulations- They’ve already lost women for 2014 and 2016. Countdown to them wondering why begins… now.
Suzanne, I’m not — nor have I ever been — a woman, but, if I were one, and was told
- I should not expect equal pay for performing equal work, and
- the state should have the right to insert a vaginal probe into me with or without my permission
I’d be pretty damn angry, too . . .
Those are Exactly The Credentials Rupert Murdoch requires for anyone working at Fux Nuze – professional, Natural Born, Narcissists.
Seems that guys like that also expect them to be stay at home moms that keeps the place real clean, and provides both dinner and sex on demand.
Then I checked out her sites, and changed my tune to wondering if Bill and Megyn get their talking points from Venker.
