A woman’s work is never done.
The feminists love that adage. They are also the reason why it was truncated from »A man may work from dusk to dawn, but a woman’s work is never done.« The feminists are responsible for making the first part of that adage vanish by rigorously following this instruction and imposing it on everyone:
A man’s work is… ignored.
Why is that first part of the original adage being ignored? Men are obligated to work. If they don’t work, they better be sick, invalid or dead, otherwise they would be bums. The feminist argument goes that, while men who don’t work (for women) are bums, women are now equal and have the privilege to work, if they want to, and to have their work being regarded as being of equal value to that done by men.
It is alright for women to be equal to men and to be even more equal, but we cannot have it that women must stick to the sort of obligations that men are being burdened with. Therefore many men are opting out from the onerous obligations they labour under. They demand that they be equal to women, with the same rights and privileges, and why not? For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, even when it comes to equality of the sexes. Some may not like that, but vastly more perceive things to be that way.
The perceptions of the majority count. That is the primary attribute of mob rule. Another one is that established cultural values and standards by which value judgments were made need to be replaced by perceptions. That removes much order from society, and the absence of all order is chaos, but, ultimately, we will all be equal as well as being equally unhappy.
As stated above, things were not always that way, and this collection of articles presents a few perceptions of what they were like, why we had reasons to be dissatisfied with the way things were, and why it came about that now we all are becoming equally unhappy.
See how that works? While women slaved away in their warm homes, we don’t wish to mention that very few of them came even close to experiencing men’s part of the deal, aside from the fact that the complaint doesn’t waste a thought on that men had to do the slugging and the dying.
Still, some of the authors of today’s popular opinions appear to be rationalizing that the unhappiness of many is a necessary price to be paid for the happiness of a few who are quite willing not to share the general unhappiness that prevails. They perceive that the condition of society was then far worse than it is now, especially with respect to the status of women that Marx and Engels (the communist apostles of the 19th century whose blueprint for socialist social engineering we now apply with a vengeance) found so much lacking in value, primarily because it was extensively built on virtue, mutual respect and love.
The reality of that is that love that is free is essentially worthless, the mutual respect out of which it once grew no longer necessary, wherefore the virtues comprising the foundation of a well-functioning society could be and have been done away with.
Marx and Engels wanted to bring the productivity of women into the workforce, making it necessary to have women liberated from slaving for their families. In that fashion, women’s productivity can be taxed and applied to the creation of the greatness of the socialist state. That was to be achieved through ‘free love’, a concept that is today called ‘sexual freedom’. There you are. All is good, but is it? More…
The goals promoted by Marx and Engels were met. They must be dancing in their graves, except for that there is a little problem. Although women’s work is now being taxed, a woman’s work is never done and many women are now doing it alone, by themselves. Moreover, even though men’s work was being taxed all along, only more so now, a man’s work is never done either, but we don’t talk much about that. The consequences of that are reflected in this:
