Ivanka Trump Advances Feminism, Anti-Male and Anti-Family Narratives

Ivanka_Trump

Ivanka Trump went full-tilt feminism for part of her speech at the Republican National Convention

If there was one giant disappointment for the manosphere last Thursday night just before Donald Trump’s magnificent speech accepting the Cucklican party’s nomination, it was his daughter Ivanka’s promulgation of the equal pay myth and several other YouGoGrrl myths aimed at further pedestalizing women at the expense of Beta male taxpayers in society. The equal pay myth has been thoroughly debunked, and yet we saw the non-Establishment candidate’s daughter resuscitating it and advancing this leftist agenda item. This is very troubling.

The never-ending lurch towards Cultural Marxism over the 50 years has happened because Republicans initially put up symbolic resistance to insane leftist policies like those that have made men nothing but sperm donors and child support check writers in the eyes of the law, only to later fully embrace the new far left policies. Once again, with Ivanka’s promotion of leftist talking points we saw the relentless advance of Cultural Marxism continuing due to the short attention spans and memories of traditionalists and conservatives.

There were several signs of this embrace of leftist agenda items last week at the Republican National Convention, which nobody on the right seemed to notice. We’ll leave Donald’s embrace of the LGBT bacon cheeseburger crowd out of the discussion and focus on the YouGoGrrl mantle taken up by Trump’s daughter. Ivanka’s speech was probably a political calculation designed to steal female votes from the Wicked Witch Hillary. Still, many in the manosphere should be taken aback, because once again for political expedience we are being sold down the river for the mythical, infallible creature known as the Anglo female. Ivanka told the Cucklican crowd:

Women represent 46 percent of the total U.S. labor force, and 40 percent of American households have female primary breadwinners. In 2014, women made 83 cents for every dollar made by a man. Single women without children earn 94 cents for each dollar earned by a man, whereas married mothers made only 77 cents. As researchers have noted, gender is no longer the factor creating the greatest wage discrepancy in this country, motherhood is.

Notice, motherhood is equated with failure as a parting blow while Ivanka pushes the big lie known as the gender wage gap. However, Forbes magazine exposed the shameless fiction the equal pay myth represents just last April.

The wage gap statistic, however, doesn’t compare two similarly situated co-workers of different sexes, working in the same industry, performing the same work, for the same number of hours a day. It merely reflects the median earnings of all men and women classified as full-time workers. There are numerous other factors that affect pay. Most fundamentally, men and women tend to gravitate toward different industries. Men, in contrast, often take jobs with less desirable characteristics in pursuit of higher pay. They work long hours and overnight shifts. They tar roofs in the sun, drive trucks across the country, toil in sewer systems, stand watch as prison guards, and risk injury on fishing boats, in coal mines, and in production plants. Such jobs pay more than others because otherwise no one would want to do them.

Ivanka said nothing of pushing women into dirty, difficult, and dangerous jobs to help make up for the wage gap, nor did she suggest making women work longer hours to catch up with the number of hours men work. She did insinuate men need to “man up” and let women get paid more for doing easier work. She also insinuated, though did not directly say this was because of “injustice” in our society at the hands of – you guessed it – the Evil White Male™.

Ivanka

Ivanka pushes policies that benefit “women with children” not “families” – notice the wording, very important when analyzing political speeches

More Troubling Talking Points

Ivanka’s speech was troubling not only in that it leaves men at a disadvantage in jobs they deserve to be better paid than women for – but it is also another cleverly disguised attack on the Beta males of society, further making them worthless in the eyes of most women because female hypergamy makes the sexual market go round. There were other reasons to be worried for those who think the nuclear family has been battered and beaten by design, and that women are in the workforce for all the wrong reasons in the first place, as exposed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Aaron Russo. Ivanka told the nation:

As President, my father will change the labor laws that were put into place at a time when women were not a significant portion of the workforce. And he will focus on making quality childcare affordable and accessible for all.

Ivanka never mentions that women are happier as homemakers than in any YouGoGrrl profession. Going by her narrative, nannies are the preferred means of raising families, and worse, it furthers the agenda of leaving children in the hands of the State (rather than their mothers) to be indoctrinated because mom is off working to pay taxes to a gargantuan, centralized government and to fund her own empty, materialistic lifestyle. Ivanka goes on with more feminist rhetoric:

As a mother myself, of three young children, I know how hard it is to work while raising a family. And I also know that I’m far more fortunate than most. American families need relief. Policies that allow women with children to thrive should not be novelties, they should be the norm.

Notice – Ivanka only pays lip service to conservatives with a quick mention of families – but says policies that benefit women with children should be the norm, not those that benefit families, and she definitely doesn’t mention fathers. It basically amounts to an embrace of carousel-riding single mommery that is destroying America’s youth. Your family court system status as a sperm donor was just reinforced by the Trump campaign last week, as much as it pains me to write this. All in all, one comes away from Ivanka’s speech with the impression the Cucklican party is now courting the feminists and YouGoGrrl crowd that the Democrat/Socialist party has had a firm grip on for 50 years.

This speech confirms most, if not all the problems discussed in our corner of the internet are being totally ignored in favor of the “female oppression” pap Republicans once claimed to oppose. Our problems as men and traditionalists don’t count – those faced by the disappearing nuclear family, MGTOWs, Beta male tax/child support/alimony slaves, and those who want to return to a more sensible family model – one that worked well for thousands of generations before being discarded in favor of “progress” (i.e. our current demographically and culturally suicidal, statistically sterile model). The anti-Establishment candidate has now embraced feminism, in other words. For all the good Trump has done in bringing alt-right narratives to the forefront, pushing feminist policies and narratives is NOT one of them. When it comes to equal pay, Forbes put it best:

Feminists may protest, but American women aren’t the victims of a sexist economy. It’s time to declare an end to the Equal Pay Day myth.

Why, oh why, Donald, are you letting your daughter push leftist, anti-family, and anti-male talking points? It is worrying to watch the conservatives once again falling back and ceding ground to the advance of Cultural Marxism and the destruction of the family. The Political Game has failed us once again, at least on this major issue. The Trump campaign just took the side of feminism. Not good.

The Myth of the Strong, Independent Woman

Rosie

Women claim to be strong and independent like Rosie the Riveter but then look for massive divorce payoffs from men, government handouts, and to be paid more for working less

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™:

  • Trains
  • Planes
  • Cars
  • Rockets
  • Telescopes
  • Telephones
  • Radios
  • Television
  • Computers

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?

Construction

There is a shortage of women in the well-paying construction industry, but we need women to do backbreaking labor not just administration

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.

Walking

As women attempt to exploit society’s resources for material gain, we as men can choose to stop feeding the monster they’ve created

Revolt

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?
