If you missed Lee Cullum's piece in today's paper, go read it. It's so true and and though I had to go look up Lysistrata, it was pretty much what I'd guessed. The title of her piece is Anti Women's Movement is Upon Us, and good for her for connecting the dots. It's on page 11 A in the DMN.
My wise old owl friend and I discuss all kinds of things and her point of view is true as well. She said "We women are responsible for what's going on in the world today with men, and how they are acting. We raised these pitiful, weak men-children to think they are something when they can't compete with us at all. We've hidden our light under a bush to prop up the flagging self esteem of the true weaker sex, and in doing so, have created monsters. We've created ego driven, selfish, self centered, controlling men who really do think they are smarter, better, and more capable. It's time for us to stop all the crap, tell the truth, (you ain't all that, baby) and concentrate on raising our daughters to be the magnificient creatures that they truly are. Yes, we can still raise wonderful sons, but we won't concentrate all our efforts in that arena, forgetting the fabulousness of our daughters. We won't raise sons at the expense of our daughters."
Don't forget for a second that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world and it's time we females joined together and stopped all these women haters. Let's send them back to their mother's for re-training and consciousness raising. If their mother's can't or won't do it, then, girl's, just cut 'um off at the pump. And, yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying. Go google Lysistrata. Men need to learn how to play nicely with others--especially women. You don't grab, your don't hit, and compromise is not an BAD word. IF you can't play nice, you don't get to play at all. Literally and figuratively.
Then we females can get on with running the world. We're mothers--we can do it with half our brain tied behind us. Face it, guys...we have all the power and you all know it. And you know where it's located. All we have to do is sit down or cross our legs, and the game's over for you all. And that's just how I see it. :)
