Genders as Competitors

10 03 2009

A while ago I was witness to a program on the otherwise innocent HGTV called “Battle of the Sexes”, a title that encapsulates what I feel is currently wrong with our modern-day concept of co-gendered existence: competitors, rather than cooperators.  We are raised in a culture that sees the sexes “battling” as acceptable, even normal.  Battling in the workplace, battling in classrooms, in video games, in relationships, in marriages and in litertature.

The primary purpose of the two sexes is reproduction and the maintenance of family via compassionate bonds.  How exactly is this going to be achieved through competition rather than cooperation?  I thought it was “making love” that built marriages and families, not “making war”, as the cliche’s of the hippie era (which ironically enough would become the source of many of the sexes-as-enemies ideologies that have become commonplace today) would logically theorize.  But the latter will be what we are apt to partake in as long as popular culture and the bulk of the academic world continue to promote the justification and acceptance of gender warfare.

it was never intended to bring us together, it was intended to break us apart and facilitate state indoctrination to create a change from capitalism to communism.

“Feminism, Socialism, and Communism are one in the same, and Socialist/Communist government is the goal of feminism.” – Catharine A. MacKinnon, Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (First Harvard University Press, 1989), p.10

“A world where men and women would be equal is easy to visualize, for that precisely is what the Soviet Revolution promised.” – Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex (New York, Random House, 1952), p.806

as for the family, without father and all the linkages, there is no alternative source of real world education. with mom working, there is no other source of review of what the children get or are doing. modern sex education parallels lukaks work in hungary during the bella khun government.

but here, let the icons of feminism tell you themselves.

“In order to raise children with equality, we must take them away from families and communally raise them” — Dr. Mary Jo Bane, feminist and assistant professor of education at Welleslry College and associate director of the school’s Center for Research on Woman

this is the college that clinton went to.

“No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.” — Interview with Simone de Beauvoir, “Sex, Society, and the Female Dilemma,” Saturday Review, June 14, 1975, p.18

and she is a real biggie to the movement

“Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the Women’s Movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.” — Sheila Cronan, “Marriage,” in Koedt, Levine, and Rapone, eds., Radical Feminism, p. 219

“For one of the implicit, if unadmitted, tenets of feminism has been a fundamental disrespect for men.” — Wendy Dennis

“How will the family unit be destroyed? … the demand alone will throw the whole ideology of the family into question, so that women can begin establishing a community of work with each other and we can fight collectively. Women will feel freer to leave their husbands and become economically independent, either through a job or welfare.” — From Female Liberation by Roxanne Dunbar

there are literally thousands of quotes from all the top names all aligned to this one goal, which is not supported by the majority who blindly support them.

want to know why we dont cooperate, because they think the female prols in china who were working for nike, and living in barracks at subsistence levels is an improvement over the lifestyle idealized by norman rockwell.

just so we know it goes back tot eh core, and any woman supporthing them, are supporting the same kind of state that created abortion on demand where we silently exterminate the population of italy each year.

“The first condition of the liberation of the wife is to bring the whole female sex back into public industry, and this in turn demands the abolition of the monogamous family as the economic unit of society.” [Engels, p.67]

and here he is talking about the holocaust, before we had that name for it. this so its clear that more are coming because like the foundational elements the feminists are pushing, the “revolutionary world storm” (holocaust) is a core facet to the ideology and the future we are heading for since we turned away from individual freedom.


“All the other large and small nationalities and peoples are destined to perish before long in the revolutionary world storm… these residual fragments of peoples always become fanatical standard-bearers of counter-revolution and remain so until their complete extirpation or loss of their national character… [A general war will] wipe out all these petty hidebound nations, down to their very names. The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only of reactionary classes and dynasties, but also of entire reactionary peoples. And that, too, is a step forward.” — Friedrich Engels, “The Magyar Struggle,” Neue Rhenische Zeitung, January 13, 1849

I agree. The battle of the sexes is an imaginary construction, which creates strawmen “sex leagues.” It’s a collectivist idea, which does away with the individual. Cooperation, however, does not however imply any concept of equality, and indeed, does not imply sameness. Equality itself is nebulous, undefined and used as some absolute justification in any context it can be used. The concept should be tossed as it exists, and equality in specific senses should not be confused with sameness.
