Feminists Relax. You have already Won!


Kate Paulk over at the Mad Genius Club - Writers Division blog assures all women in the western world that this battle is over and it is time to relax and take things easy.

Fighting the won war.

On related matters, an update on my post of July 8th "Things were better when...". I have continued my reading of public domain short stories from the 40s and 50s and have found no additional stories with a female lead in the last two months. I will let you know if things change(alhough I am not holding my breath).

Um, where does this blogger live? Obviously not in the USA if she thinks women have won the equality war! She sounds like a Special Snowflake to me.

Hey, I'd get frowned on if I called you "toots", what more do you want!? ;)

There's an awful pun in that, based on "trumpet" and a very antique word for loose woman. I shan't make it, however, because I am Noble. :-)

Don't want to go blowing your own strumpet, eh?

She still thinks of herself as Australian but yeah, she has lived in the US for about 9 years.

Well, I shouldn't call anyone a Special Snowflake on the basis of a single post, either. But that kind of thing is annoying when as an American woman I see so many of the things we've fought for being taken away, and dingbats like Michele Bachmann mouthing off like a reincarnation of Mrs. Humphrey Ward.

We have won battles, but there's a counter-attack in progress, and we may yet lose the war.

If you look at the comments you will see she isn't a SS, since she has quite a number of people all willing to shout "hazzah!" at this weird diatribe. This is one time I know when to shut up and back away slowly. I may be a glutton for punishment but this time I aint pokin' the bear.

You'll notice I didn't say anything, either. :-)

Special Snowflakes often accumulate Drift. Let them have their happy delusions. I figure that sooner or later, Life will happen, and she'll see just how far the supposed victory takes her.
