Getting close to Valentines Day and the feminists are chaffing at the bit, trying to muster their
If you're searching for a way to express your frustration with a holiday that requires you to a) be in a relationship and purchase heart-shaped things to prove your commitment to said relationship, you now have a place to go. Meet Occupy Valentine's Day.The Lezebel(Jezebel) site where feminasties gather to spew vitriol and rabididy, are spewing and raging about this number one day on their "I hate it because" calender. The obvious problem they have is that they are partner-less(who want want to have anything to do with a feminist) and thereby their outbursts are much more rabid than usual. If that is possible. It's been a while since their "Slutwalk" demonstration, so they are getting bored and just dying to fill their vacant, unnecessary lives, with some other pursuit.
Here is their justification and it's as laughable as the excuse they used for Slutwalk..
Celebrating love is wonderful and romance can be great too. But we don't need corporations to dictate how we should do it, a mainstream media chastising us for not doing it right or traditional ideas touted over and over by our friends and family. That shit is oppressive and hurts us more than helps.(laugh break)
Obviously the word "NO" does not exist in their vocabulary and neither does "ignore it" have any significance either. But insanity has always been a pre-condition for feminist adherence.
As an alternative to purchasing the perfect box of candy, she suggests you submit "a video-blog about your worst Valentine's Day date" or "a list about why the latest 'trend story' about how single women will die alone and unhappy is wrong." One user sent in a pic of her and her sister and wrote,I did wonder what their motive could possibly be as the majority of females just love the concept of Valentines Day, as it enhances the conversation levels for at least the next month, as they "to and fro" on the subject. But the quote above indicates that they are upset because the carpet munchers are not included in the general consensus, if we can call it that. Ahhh!, good old ulterior motives. Cannot half the heteros having fun on their own while lesbians suffer, heaven forbid..
There is something to be said of sisterly love, that relentless, "I've got your back no matter what" kind of love. That "Do you need me to take you to the clinic?" love. My sister, the one in two-toned braids embracing me above, is 10 years my junior. She is a stand-up kid whose passion in life is photography and fighting racist, sexist and homophobic bullying in her high school. She is my sister but I have never known a love like this before. This February, sisterly love will be underrepresented, yet it will be just as valid.
You are well aware of the fact that cognitive dissonance reign supreme in the feminastie movement right ?
As far as Valentines Day goes, it's up to you how you go about it and what you do. If it's demanded, taken for granted than I would give it the middle finder in response. If it is not mentioned, suggested or even hinted at, than I would do something positive, just to keep the peace. It's worth it..
But, as I stated, entirely up to yourself as to what you do. Whatever you do do, do not forget her birthday or anniversary. They are grounds for divorce as far as she is concerned and spending a few bucks ain't gonna break the bank..
