A few weeks ago when I was thinking about the shadow side of women and how they hunt each other. I discussed this with a friend who is into politics. The election had just ended and he watches all the political shows.
He told me he felt the whole culture treated women poorly all the way around and he thought it was heinous. He said the talking heads on the political shows, Chris Matthews and the like, did nothing but mock the women… all the men on the panel did.
“It’s disgusting,” he said. “And the women on the panel are no better.”
“They don’t defend them?”
“No, they mock them too.”
“Yeah, well I imagine they are in this man’s world. They finally got a seat on one of those shows and if they act like a woman, they’re going to be next!”
So anyway, on that last blog I told you my friend was “sweet”. I told you she was sweet twice! And I told you she was under attack. And I told you that she finally decided to fight back. And she managed to be effective, thank God. And based on the comments, this is not okay with of a number of you. So just think about that.
A woman is getting attacked. Repeatedly! She finally manages to get up off her back and get her own knife out to defend herself, and as soon as she does people (other women) want to characterize her as some kind of misguided psycho witch who is wasting her time. Excuse me????
How come no one championed her? Where are the “go, baby!” sentiments for a woman who fights back? If she stayed on her back to continue to be stabbed, would that be acceptable? I don’t think it would.
The same women who would attack a woman for fighting back would attack her for not fighting back. Sucks to be a girl, eh? But it’s fine to be a perpetrator and there is something horribly wrong with this. I guess she should defend herself with a feather or a dust mop or something. Would that be okay?
