VProud has been touted as a social networking service for women says The Cut. For me it is better named VAshamed.
The idea of creating a social networking for women as an alternative to a mainstream site like Facebook is disgraceful.
Throughout history, women have given their lives to get equal rights for men and women onto the statute books. To say it is a good thing not to enforce these rights shows they don’t make women like they used to. It seems today’s feminists want to have the rights that were hard won, but none of the responsibilities that go with them. They seem to want to fight with their mouth but let their brain to a runner.
My grandmother is what I call Rhondda Woman – whilst it was Rhondda Man who thought he was the head of the household, it was Rhondda Woman who actually was, ensuring that the children were fed before the money had a chance to get peed away at the pub. My grandmother was a political activist, knocking on doors to further her political beliefs.
When people were abusive to my grandmother, she wouldn’t roll on the floor crying like Caroline Criado-Perez and Stealla Creasy MP have over a few trolls, she would continue to argue for what she believed in.
It is one thing to have websites like Cafe Mom, where women who are mothers can meet like-minded people to share experiences with, but for women to leave a mainstream website like Facebook or Twitter because of trolls shows they do not deserve the hard-fought rights they are all too easily giving up.
As a former Labour Party member I think I can shed some light on why Sian Lloyd was not invited to the wedding of her stepdaughter.
It is likely to be because her relations like many other socialist party members have impaired relationship skills, even if they have good social skills. I have published research on this condition, which I call ‘empathism.’
Empathism affects more women than men, and people with the condition will break off relationships over the slightest of issues – such as differences of opinion on the war on Iraq.
People cut dead by empathics can feel despair at best and rage or suicide at worst. This includes men dumped overnight by their girlfriends who they still have a strong affinity to, but have not been able to get closure with.
If it was personal issues that meant Sian Lloyd wasn’t invited, then maybe she could get comfort in knowing that most people in the Labour Party and politics are the same. If you are not in their little empathic clique you are as good as dead to them!
I was thinking today that people who read magazines like Nuts are probably less likely to objectify women than those in monogamous relationships. I know personally that since breaking up with my ex and reading Nuts Magazine there are more types of breast that I liked than when I was with her – which was her’s alone!
So I can see women as individuals with their own unique qualities, whereas those in relationships only have eyes for their partner to the ignorance of others because they have objectified their partner as the only one for them! Reading Nuts magazine does not make one objectify women, it is simply a means to provide a stimulus to the mind that men have needed for around 200,000 years. One cannot stay single and keeps one’s sanity without giving one’s psyche at least a glimpse of what it desires.
I like Andy Happel’s version of Ode to Joy, Jo. There is part of it where a group are saying that they will respect those people who think they have found their one true friend, but the group will still let that person drink with them as a group of people who recognise diversity.
With 7,000,000,000 people in the world, how can one know that the person one is with is the right person and there is not someone better out there, let alone delude oneself into thinking that their physical attributes are more desirable than anyone else’s or even that one is not objectifying women just because one doesn’t have eyes for other people.
