This is BS. Women didn’t have the right to vote in the US until a century and a half after men did, and with the dangers of childbirth female life expectancy was less than men’s for much of history.
“Women didnt have the right to vote in the US until a century and a half after men did”
Well, you’re focusing on the US, which had some of the most progressive voting rights in the world. Still, even here not ALL men had the right to vote that early. In the beginning most men did not have the right to vote, only white male property owners, who were a minority. Also, in most cases non-Christians could not vote either, and there were also requirements to pay poll taxes, or literacy tests. It wasn’t until 1870 that all men in the US achieved legal voting rights.
Still, for non-whites just having the “right” didn’t translate to actually being able to vote everywhere, until 1965 with the Voting Rights Act. White women, on the other hand, had freer voting rights starting in 1920. So, even in the US, some women were voting decades before some men were. It’s not as cut-and-dry a scenario as some like to paint.
Voting does not give one power-—look at Russia and Chicago.
Oppression of women is relative-—Western Civilization has given women—esp. in colonial America a tremendous amount of power and rights. Look at the lives of Abigail Adams and most women of their time who selected their own husbands and had much power over men’s votes and thoughts and property. Total control of the education of the children, etc. The power of that is control of the future. Look at what Tocqueville said about the women in America.
To compare American women to men is stupid-—they are not the same and not equal in many ways. The Egalitarianism which tries to take away the humanity of both men and women and say they are interchangeable and should have the exact same ROLES in life and the family are extremely destructive—especially to the emotional development of children.
It is human NATURE that woman IS THE WEAKER SEX—that is why they have been “oppressed” by every single culture that ever existed. The weak always were oppressed whether women or MEN.
BTW, it is Christianity which gave dignity and worth to women-—IDEOLOGY-—which determines if a person has dignity and worth and “oppressed” women in the US were given much more respect in the early 20th century than after the 60’s-—where now women are routinely portrayed as meat and sluts and no one even bats an eye. They aren’t even able to care for their babies at home now with taxes and divorce rates and single parenting becoming the norm.
Women have stated in all women magazines how miserable they are-—and this is AFTER they got the vote. They write about how to be a sex slave in bed-——they are slaves to the lust of men (and women) and NOT oppressed anymore, huh-—when STD’s and abortions are the norm and they mutilate their bodies to get men’s attention for more than 10 minutes and fill their bodies with birth control pills-—toxins causing cancers, etc.
What is important in life was God—and with Him there was great happiness and fulfillment and love of children and family which gave women great happiness-—always did—even without the now worthless vote.
Giving the vote to women was stupid-—it got us Zero. I know way too many stupid women who never read anything but romance novels and would vote for Zero any time. They are useful idiots when it comes to voting for whatever the headlines in the newspapers want them to do. Men have always been much more responsible voters—especially if they were land owners. People should have to take a test to have the right to vote.
