Women Suck… Redux… Part II

Women Suck…

    

Redux…

Part II

My ears are still burning; it was touch and go for a bit back then.

Damn was she pissed…

DAMN~

But she’s stopped yelling at me now, and that’s a good thing. She seems over it, she still thinks I’m off base with my thoughts, with my stated comments. She still says that I’m not placing the blame on the “real culprits” as she sees them (“White Menwho…

… voted for Trump by a HUGE majority, 27% I think…), but she’s stopped screaming at me.

A good thing that, a good thing…

But the issue that started this all, my blaming Women (“White Women”) specifically, for all that went down in the last election, for the complete, and TOTAL, victory of THE DARK SIDE… that hasn’t gone away.

Yea…

I said casually (and foolishly, I suppose), that El Trumpo won the Presidency, and his fascist, fanatical, misogynist Republican Tea Party acolytes the House and Senate (and 67% of all the Statehouses too), because a majority of “White Women”, some 52% of them, voted for those dudes over Hillary.And she went BESERK!

But no matter her reaction, it’s 100% true, by a margin of 52 to 48% White Women supported Mr. “Grab’ Em by the Pussy” Trump and his fanatical bandwagon of “Family Values” cohorts over the Lady candidate Hillary and her Democratic Party Standard Bearers.

And:

“To the Victor go the Spoils… “

… and Hoo Boy is everything spoilt!

SPOILT! spoilt… 

But no matter her irritation over that “blame” responsibility I threw out there, or the screaming on her part thereafter, she’s calmer with me now; she’s still breathing heavy when she looks in my direction, but she’s no longer salivating profusely and staring at me as if she’s waiting to take a big bite out of my derriere when I’m not looking.

I’m kind of safe for the moment, physically, I suppose…

Hmmmmm…

Perhaps she’s remembered that I am amongst the converted, that I believe in all that she believes in 100%:

EQUALITY…

… equality under the law for all people in the world, certainly for those people here, in America, where “equality” is the law of the land we live in: moral, legal, and financial, EQUALITY!

For all…

No ifs, buts, or ands, ALL people are equal to one another in American society under the law…

EQUALITY!

But here’s the rub… they’re not.

As a White Male, I’ve gone through most of my life inured to the slings and arrows the dark skinned, the female, the speech accented, the “other” oriented, or the in any way different from the norm, “odd person out”, were treated to. And yet… I was asked where my “vestigial horns” were by a Lifeguard at a pool in Utah one July Fourth Holiday long ago when I was swimming in a Speedo; he knew I was Jewish, so I must have vestigial horns” … his Bible said so…

And then there was the time, just before that, where I was stared at by a clerk in my College Registrar’s Office as I attempted to pick up a Federal education subsidy stipend that she had previously only seen go to Americans of color… there were no poor “white people” getting that money back then…

None…

  

So she stared, and stared, and stared

And I asked “pour quoi?”, and she told me…

I certainly was the odd man out those times; I certainly felt odd then. But I was actively denied nothing, nor was I hurt in any way, or stymied, or taken advantage of.

I could have been…

I could have been ordered out of the pool, ordered away from the children playing in the water nearby…

… or worse, those monies could have been willfully withheld.

But they weren’t; and I wasn’t…

So my attitudes were never challenged; I went forward then, just as I do today, committed to EQUALITY!

Impeach Tricky Dicky Nixon; Down with Donald Trump, The Republican Party, Family Values, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Woody Allen, Aziz Ansari, Michael Douglas, Dustin Hoffman…”

  

Down with any of them…

Except…

Except…

I believe that context, circumstance (like are Aziz, Michael, and Dustin in the same league of guilt and crime as Harvey, Kevin and Donald …?) … negotiation, and compromise matter. I believe that these elements have a viable place in what’s going on in society today. But today’s political factions (Democrat/Republican, Democrat/Progressive, or Republican/Conservative) won’t so much as speak to each other civilly, let alone negotiate with each other to reach a consensus on how to move society forward. 

  

Nooooo…

… today it’s all about who can shout the loudest and attain 100% of their own Agenda, everyone else be damned; it’s ALL, or nothing at all.

SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN IF I CAN’T GET MY WAY!

SHUT IT DOWN…

“They’re all Guilty…”

“Me TOO!” …

me too…

me too…

When Civil Rights Legislation was enacted into law in 1965 so started the Culture Wars; the Culture Wars were/are a peaceful replay of the Civil War fought physically some 100 plus years before.

    

Only Guns are not fired on battlefields this go around; these battles for the heart and soul of the Nation are fought at courthouses and ballot boxes all around the land. Here the supporters of the Left (the Democrats), and the supporters of the Right (the Republicans), are vociferous, loud, and strident in their verbal demands to protect what they hold dear…

Slowly, over decades, a resurgent Conservative Republican South reared up its electoral muscle by painstakingly mouthing off a God fearing, societally reassuring Mantra to the Nation’s WHITE public over, and over, again. And that oft repeated Mantra struck a chord of acceptance with the nervous White Female and the economically challenged White Male in the ideological, and physical, center of America. And by striking that chord, over, and over, and over, again, The Dark Side gained control of governments local, and national.

I think I get some of that Republican Dark Side appeal…

Some of it…

The fringes of the two Parties always scream the loudest; and those loud screams of the Democratic Left scare the center…

What with the Democrats loudly screaming out to protect UNDOCUMENTED Immigrants, mostly people of color who came to the United States illegally, and of course are portrayed by the Republican Right as at worst: “rapists, drug dealers, and criminals”, and at best as taking jobs, government services, and money, away from legitimate AMERICAN citizens.

 

And the center writhes…

And then there are the Left’s chants for societal justice:

“Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”

… against perceived WHITE Police brutality that may, or may not, have occurred as it was portrayed in the Liberal media…

Well… 

  

Just what is a woman to think…

And so, “many” Women, those “White Women” in the center of America, keep voting for the “White Men” they think can best protect them from all of the upheaval lurking in the shadows. Meeeee… I don’t see any security in the “Family Values” persona that the Republicans roll out there all the time, but White Women keep falling for it over, and over, and over again…

… for more than 50 years now.

OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN!

So like I said before, it’s all their fault…

Oops…

She’s screaming again…

Oops…

I’d better watch my butt.
