Reader’s Comment of the Day: Careerist women are still slaves – to their male bosses


In response to Laura Keynes: The Conservative government offers little to socially conservative women, jimmy wrote:

A good article, thank you, on a much under-debated question.

“Bar none, all the women on my birth board are concerned about having to go back to work and the effect it will have on their baby. They cite financial pressure as the main reason why they’re forced back to work earlier than they’d like”

Says it all really. It’s completely natural for a mother to want to spend as much time as possible to raise her children. A tiny handful of very rich, powerful women, indoctrinated with feminism, want to let a stranger raise their children so they can return to work. And they have dominated the media and politics and now forced all other women to go along with this bizarre experiment.

The most absurd part of it all was the way that feminists have for so long attacked marriage though. Despite the fact it is nearly always women not men who want to get married of course! I note the particular glee with which modern feminists refuse to promise to honour and obey their husband. They claimed that it was a form of slavery, to serve their husband his dinner. And yet today they all serve another man: the boss at work. They do what he says and when he says it. And this boss, unlike the husbands of a couple of generations ago who would stay with their wives until the day they died, this boss couldn’t care less about the woman and her “career”, but feminists tell her she must serve him, give him all the best years of her life, the bulk of every day.

For most women, work means spending their days in dull office jobs, in warehouses, in call centres, in factories, or working as cleaners. It is not some “empowering” job as a “women’s issue journalist” or working as a “CEO” of a pretend charity, or being an “activist” – sitting in Starbucks, playing on a Macbook, thinking about how oppressed women are.

Lives are more balanced, children happier, men stronger and women ultimately much more fulfilled by having children and the man working and the mother devoting herself to raising children. It is obvious and yet feminism has so blinded us that it is hard to see it any more.

“Some might feel uncomfortable about voting Ukip”.

Why? Only those who inhabit the world of The Guardian and BBC have such a problem with the idea of us making our own laws. Try not to let those left-wing extremists make you feel uncomfortable about anything or that you must add some little caveat like that.
