"If we were going to measure all the various components of American society by the degree of dishonesty involved, at the very top would be the gap between what women want from men, and what they say they want."
Well I think this piece from Slate (yes...SLATE!) is validation of my and John's view on the whole thing:
According to CNN, 53 percent of white female voters voted for Donald Trump. Fifty-three percent. More than half of white women voted for the man who bragged about committing sexual assault on tape, who said he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, who has promised to undo legislation that has afforded health insurance to millions of uninsured Americans, whose parental leave plan is a joke, who has spent his campaign dehumanizing nonwhite people, who has spent 30-plus years in the public eye reducing women to their sexual attributes. More than half of white women looked at the first viable female candidate for the presidency, a wildly competent and overqualified career public servant, and said, “Trump that bitch.”
Let me say it again...women, that's actual biologically correct heterosexual women, have no use for Feminism if they are attractive enough to get any attention from men. Feminism is a philosophy for the female failures in the sexual marketplace. The lesbians, the obese, the unattractive, and the otherwise unappealing. It's a con game designed to level the playing field between people like Lena Dunham and the women that men naturally find attractive. It is to the sexual marketplace what Marxism is to economics. It's equality of poverty where all women become so unattractive that no man will want them.
I am deeply encouraged by the fact that women were unphased by Trump's comments. It means they are collectively worth more effort by we men. The drooling messes at Slate obviously feel differently, but who cares? Not me.
And... I'm always pleased when the Derb is proved exactly right. It's a sign that our collective decision making is converging on the rational.
