The young women trampled by the Women’s March

Summary: On Saturday thousands of women assembled to march for many, sometimes contradictory goals. Just like Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party. This is modern America. As these photos show, the March consisted of fun street parties — easily distinguished from serious political action.

Hear Our Voice

Street parties pretending to be political action are in vogue again. Just like Occupy, the Tea Party, and the first Women’s March. The Women’s Marches have even less political content than the OWS and the TP, and hence probably will have even less political impact.

But proles just want to have fun. That’s why they’re proles, not citizens. Activity pretending to be a movement, without programs, organization, or effective leadership. These are all in effect peasants’ protests — spectacular but futile demonstrations blow off the tensions accumulated in the politically passive masses.

Also note the lack of learning from OWS and the TP displayed in these Marches. But that’s what makes modern Americans such ideal subjects for the 1%. We are a gift to them!

Photos do not tell the full story of this weekend’s March, but convey the key point. These photos — and others — are from “I Went to the Women’s March. Here Are 11 Things I Saw.” by Kelsey Harkness at the Daily Signal.

Martin Luther King Jr. and his peers probably would have kicked such people to the curb because they would diminish the political focus and seriousness of the Civil Rights Marches.

Also popular is dressing up as a character in Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. It is a story as relevant to modern America as Star Trek. Politically it is the equivalent of screaming about commies under the bed, since our culture is going at warp speed in away from any oppressed-women-religious-dictatorship future. Dressing like a Handmaid at a political event is equivalent to showing up with parachutes at a house fire.

Photo three: a hint about at America’s future.

The display in the following photo is logical, since modern feminism might result in a generation with an unprecedented number of cat ladies — unmarried women, living alone with their cats (details here). Read Abigail Tucker’s The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World to learn about the likely result: the Bird Apocalypse. Tens of millions of hyper-predators in America’s urban and suburban regions will slaughter birds in uncountable numbers. {Note to ideologues: that’s a joke.}

The real unheard women’s voices

A generation of women have been raised by feminists. They learned to have a decade of casual sex before searching for a husband, to regard men as disposable (like a fish needs a bicycle), that divorce is easy after a husband helps the children through the first few difficult years — and that independence plus child support are wonderful lifestyles.

Now the vanguard of these women are in their early thirties. Their stories are often sad, even pitiful. See Grace’s tale at Babe (an emotional description, bizarrely treated as almost a videotape by feminists) and the misadventures of Sarah described in Cheap Sex: The Transformation of Men, Marriage, and Monogamy by Mark Regnerus (Oxford University Press, 2017).

Many of these women suffer from the growing realization that their lives will be worse than their mothers — who had companionship, marriage, children, and family. In exchange they had lots of sex with uncaring men (partying hard until they hit the wall) and “careers” with uncaring companies (for many, lower incomes as single women than their married mothers).

    1. Gute,

      That’s cruel. It is, however, what I hear from young men (early 20s). They consider themselves to be ill-treated by that kind of young women (“THOTs”), and have little or no sympathy for their woes from riding the carousel.

    1. Steve,

      That’s quite an odd comment. You reject findings of peer-reviewed research on the basis of an LAT op-ed.

      This just in: op-eds are not a reliable source of info, no matter how much science deniers love them.

    2. Steve,

      You don’t know what the judge said, nor the basis for the decision. You’ve just read an op-ed.

  1. “Street parties pretending to be political action”

    True, but there’s also an element of status signaling. Maybe you don’t really change anything, but you get to be one of the popular girls, or at least feel like you are, or ought to be. There’s an opportunity cost, of course. Time and energy spent on being with the popular girls can’t be spent on actually making the world a better place or yourself a better person. A decade of casual sex carries an opportunity cost. That’s the lie they were told. That they could “Have it all” But no one can. We have to make choices that carry an opportunity cost.

    Just so I don’t get accused of being sexist, it’s not just women who make the mistake. I gather that the Dems don’t like Trump, but was the shutdown the best use of the time, energy, and political capital? But I digress.

    As for the bird apocalypse, I ended up with some woman’s cat staking out my bird feeders after she abandoned it along with the man in her life. I hate people who abandon animals with a screaming passion. And I need a lot of songbirds, squirrels, chipmunks, and other small critters around because I have to keep the hawks that nest in my yard fed. The poor cat did get adopted, at least.

    1. The Man,

      “That they could “Have it all” ”

      Revolutions require a promise to attract the masses. The French revolted for the promise of “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité”. They got none of the three — and a ruined nation (never recovering its glory and role in Europe).

      Now women have adopted the even madder belief that can “have it all.” As described in this post, young women are ruining their lives in pursuit of this unrealistic goal. We truly live in the “crazy years.”

      Historians will write books, incredulous that many believed something so daft.
