The Myth of the Strong, Independent Woman
The concept of the Strong, Independent Woman™ is shoved in Western men’s faces on a daily basis. With her slogan Don’t Need a Man™ she mythically fights off evil male oppression, slaying those penis-possessing villains with her magical sword of affirmative action and government enforced hiring policies. Rather than cultivating her feminine strengths, she tries to be like men, proving Freud correct. Women today are so deranged they consider having a womb, giving birth to children, and enjoying a life as a homemaker – which incidentally is the occupation that makes women happiest – Draconian forms of oppression.
If the Evil White Male™ even dares claim credit for his lengthy list of contributions and inventions and society he will be shouted down by minions brainwashed to hate him. According to the new narrative, all those inventions would have been made by someone else if he wasn’t actively oppressing everyone. As pointed out by Michael Savage in his book The Savage Nation, it is blasphemy to even point this out in modern times, which prevents white men from enjoying any sense of pride in themselves. Here are just a few inventions of the Evil White Male™:
Indeed, the list is much more extensive than that. But the new narrative says the despicable white male is to be extinguished so that diversity may flower. We must subjugate an entire group of people so that others can arise. Needless to say, this creates a great disincentive for white men to give a damn about society if they’re going to be held back on purpose.
But, fear not, because the Strong, Independent Woman™ is here to take his place. Of course, our social engineers tell us she can do anything a man can do. But even if she could, why would she want to? More importantly, why does she cease to exist without government bureaucracy?
Propped Up By Government
Unfortunately, the Strong, Independent Woman™ has to be propped up by an overbearing government. If the free market were left to decide who gets hired and who does not, she would be at a disadvantage in a number of areas. This is why affirmative action quotas exist, so there is a legal disincentive to hire men. In addition to a policy intended to fight “discrimination” against women (which actually drives a policy of discrimination against men in reality) we constantly get the Equal Pay Myth shoved in our faces. But, here are the real reasons women earn 81% of what men do:
- Men spend an average 8.14 hours on the job
- Women spend an average 7.75 hours on the job
- Men often go for higher pay rather than jobs they enjoy
- Women often trade higher pay for jobs they’re happier with
- Men take on dangerous and demanding jobs women don’t want that pay well
- Women miss work more often than men
An Empirical Model of Work Attendance from the U.S. Department of Labor tells us why women miss more work than men.
Women workers miss an average of 3.7 days from work every year for ill health compared to 2.7 for men. Women miss more days from work for respiratory conditions and infective diseases, and men miss more for injuries and diseases of the digestive system. Among women under age 45, about .52 days per year of work loss can be attributed to pregnancy. Thus, excluding pregnancy considerably narrows the difference in work-loss days between men and women.
What this study doesn’t point out it how modern Anglo women are increasingly forgoing having those nasty little pregnancies and aborting/killing more children since 1973 than the number of soldiers who have died in all American wars since 1776. Statistically, the deadliest person to an unborn human in Anglo America is their own mother.
Women also get preferences in the family court system because it’s assumed they are weaker and need men to support them. However, we have not seen feminists railing against getting large divorce settlements, alimony, and child support payments from men as relics of a sexist system. It seems women want whatever they can get from men financially, making marriage nothing more than a sophisticated game of prostitution. Women will take what they can get from men even if that means kicking a poor bastard out of his job under the guise of “fairness” or making the court system turn him upside down and shake him until all his money falls out. It is the height of hypocrisy when women have no issue with a legal system that views women as weak as long as they can cash a check from it.
Women also avail themselves of female-only government tit programs, further proving the legal system views them as weak while exposing more feminist hypocrisy. The blog Cultural Misandry compiled an extensive listing of female-only handouts that are truly puzzling in that women claim they can Have It All™ all by themselves these days.
Remember that when reading over this list and try to think of a single group in history that called themselves oppressed, but had so much dedicated to them. In contrast, there is not a single Federal level program dedicated to men or even boys in the US. Also note that almost every one of these female only programs are in areas where women are doing far better than men and boys (education, health care, homicide, homeless, workplace death, violence).
Women shouldn’t need these programs if they are already doing better than men in these areas. The ugly truth of the matter is since women pay less taxes than men, these programs are yet another government wealth redistribution scheme designed to exploit the labor of Beta male taxpayers for the benefit of women. Because, you know, the Golden Vagina and all.
Despite women playing the victim card, working less than men, missing more work than men, killing their children to keep up, gaming the family court system for cash and prizes extracted from discarded meal tickets, and using government programs that discriminate against men, they’re still not satisfied.
Perhaps the optimal arrangement would be one in which men are fed a diet of bread and water and housed in government work camps while all the money they earn is immediately transferred to women. We could just scale up the human tax farm and maximize male slavery to maximize benefits and idle lives of materialism for ungrateful women. Needless to say, when one sees how ridiculous this setup is the desire to be exploited by it drops to zero. The great cultural myth of the Strong, Independent Woman™ is also revealed to be full of holes. I’m still waiting for a woman to invent the cure for cancer and for women to catch up with men on the list of inventions. But she can’t because horrible creations with penises are actively keeping her down, right?
Atlas shrugs as John Galt prepares to leave the fucking building. You can have it all ladies, including the responsibilities. It’s time for a good old-fashioned slave revolt. I ran off the plantation and now live happier on less with a life of minimalism so I can take tax dollars out of a system that hates me. Will you do the same?
