Start of a bad ending: The Feminine Mystique

….previous (home page for this essay) Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series ‘The Feminine Mystique’, the start of a bad ending Betty Friedan, the author of The Feminine Mystique, had decided that women in the U.S. did have a problem, an undefinable problem that no one could put a finger on.  She nevertheless decided to describe what it was and called it “the problem with no name.”  Betty Friedan was by no means the first to express those sentiments, she merely popularized them in the U.S.A. and in doing so catered to a demand market.  She went to great lengths describing that women with college … Continue reading

Surgical Fires — Calling Doctor Semmelweis

Dr. Semmelweis is no longer with us, surgical fires are. Laser surgery is at times the source of ignition of fires in operating rooms.  Laser surgery and Dr. Semmelweis’ efforts had and still have similar consequences, good and bad ones.  They save lives, quite a few on account of laser surgery, but vastly more, perhaps as many as or more than half a billion in the case of Dr. Semmelweis’ efforts.  Unfortunately, they also caused and cause injury and death, very rarely in the case of laser surgery, perhaps never in the case of Dr. Semmelweis but once.  What he discovered killed him.  It made him a martyr who died … Continue reading

The outcome of the Irish referendum on same-sex marriage

After one of the largest turnouts in a referendum there, 62 percent of voters said ‘Yes’, making Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote.

Child protection system tears two more families apart

Daily Telegraph Attention: Christopher Booker Re: Child protection system tears two more families apart, by Christopher Booker, 16 Jul 2011 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/family/8642651/Child-protection-system-tears-two-more-families-apart.html The latest official figures show that the number of children being taken into care by social workers (now averaging more than 800 a month) has soared in the past two years by 41 per cent, to its highest ever level. In many of these cases, it seems that children are torn from their parents for no good reason, to such an extent that this has become one of the most disturbing scandals in our country today. I read the article again, and it still bothers me. I have a … Continue reading

Marriage vs Single-Parenting

As to Marriage vs Single-Parenting, it seems that Brittany, who sent the comments shown farther down, has very strong opinions on the merits of marriage or lack thereof.  She sent a follow-up comment after I wrote back to her, and she may have more to say, for that reason I began two new categories, so that she will have a place to post her comments. Brittany began by commenting on a few different subjects covered at the website of Fathers for Life, without pointing to specific quotes on particular web pages that her comments pertained to.  Such comments cannot be answered properly, but it was her first time she wrote … Continue reading

Nebraska child-support rules and parenting or FR organizations

Nebraska child-support rules and parenting or FR organizations This morning I had a call from a second wife in Nebraska (married for ten years, with a husband who has to pay child support for a 12-year-old daughter from a previous marriage). The woman told me that she is trying to find help with putting an end to frequent and escalating demands for child support increases for that 12-year-old daughter from a previous marriage of her husband. She stated that she has two children of their own with her husband and that it seems to her that she, her husband and her husband’s two youngest children have second-class status in relation … Continue reading
