Dear Modern Feminists, STOP Demonizing Men...

Dear Modern Feminists, STOP Demonizing Men...

A letter from a concerned mother of a baby boy..

Let me start this article off by stating, I am not against feminism.

I am against modern feminism.

This giant temper tantrum mislabeled as a 'fight for women's rights'.

No, this is not another 'Why We Don't Need Feminism' article.. We do need feminism.

Without true feminists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony, we wouldn't be where we are today. (As you can see in their pictures, they weren't running around in giant genitalia costumes screaming things like 'stay out of my uterus!')..

They fought with class; which is a seemingly lost value among modern feminists... Are there cases in the world of women being mistreated compared to their male counterparts? Yes. I'm not here to say there isn't...

I am h ere to say that there are also cases everywhere of men being mistreated compared to their female counterparts..

And coming from the mother of a baby boy;

STOP demonizing all men. (Beware, the following link includes the video where a modern feminist calls for the killing of all male babies/men...)

My son doesn't deserve to be demonized for being a male. He isn't even old enough to speak! The day I found out I was having a boy I had made a promise to myself that I would raise a respectable young man. A true gentleman. Who would treat EVERYONE with respect. Not just women. Men and women of all races, sexuality, religion, etc.

But modern feminists don't care if my son grows up to be a gentleman, they just care that he's a man and for being a man they think he is below them. And they're teaching young women that it will be acceptable to treat him that way in school, work, etc.

This is being written on behalf of a mother who is genuinely scared for the future of society. Even though his generation is projected to by the most conservative in years... I'm still scared for the kinds of behavior becoming more and more acceptable by modern feminists hosting 'Women's Marches' (for what?) and random protests.

What will my son see out on the streets when he's old enough to start asking questions? Just the other day when I left school, right across the street was about a 20 person protest that consisted of a handful of women wearing their pink genitalia hats. One of the women was running along the side walk in a ripped up plaid t-shirt that read, 'Pussy Power'. (Don't worry, she was screaming it, too.)

What am I going to say when my son asks me; "Mom, what's pussy power?"

A two, three, ten, twelve, fourteen year old shouldn't have to grow accustomed to seeing woman both old and young parading around the streets dawning vagina costumes and wearing shirts that say 'Pussy Power'.

If the only thing that empowers you is your pussy? I feel sorry for you. You are so much more than your female reproductive parts. Your female reproductive parts aren't what bring you 'power'.

What brings you power? Is how you treat other women. Women like me, who may not agree with your modern take on feminism. Republican, pro-life women. Believe me, I've been on the receiving end of some nasty comments solely for my religious and political beliefs.. Along with the fact that I don't associate with modern feminism.

What brings you power? Is how you treat MEN. These young men, my baby boy, they are learning what's acceptable behavior not only by me and mothers everywhere; but by what you make acceptable as a society.

As of now? You are making it acceptable for men to see you only for your 'pussy'.

Not for your heart, not for your soul, not for your mind..

For your pussy. By dawning your pink hat, by screaming 'stay out of my uterus' you are teaching my son that it's okay to see women as only their female reproductive parts. Why wouldn't he? That's all you guys seem to see in yourselves!

Keep up your fight, do whatever it is that helps you sleep at night. But please do it without teaching young women that it's okay to talk down to or disrespect young men. Do it without teaching young women that it's okay to make videos/tweets/posts calling for the killing of all men, no matter their age...

Please find your inner Elizabeth Cady Stanton and fight your fight without your disgusting genitalia costumes.

Stop teaching young men everywhere that the only thing to a woman is her vagina.

And for the love of God, stop teaching young women to only value their vaginas.

Can we make a promise to one another to stop fighting to put 'women above men' or 'men above women' but go back to the fight of being EQUAL?!

We all matter and we are all so much more than our reproductive organs. While men and women have their obvious differences, we are equal in the sense that we're all playing for the same team..

We're all trying to raise respectable individuals that will treat everyone no matter their gender, race, sexuality or religion with RESPECT.

That includes you, modern feminists.

Treat men with the respect that you want them to treat you with. You are not entitled to any special treatment because of your gender;

Just like my son isn't entitled to your mistreatment because of his.

The Trump Presidency Is Over

Say hello to President Mike Pence.

Remember this date: August 21, 2018.

This was the day that two of President Donald Trump's most-important associates were convicted on eight counts each, and one directly implicated the president himself.

Paul Manafort was Trump's campaign chairman for a few months in 2016, but the charges brought against him don't necessarily implicate Trump. However, they are incredibly important considering was is one of the most influential people in the Trump campaign and picked Mike Pence to be the vice presidential candidate.

Manafort was convicted on five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of failure to file a report of a foreign bank account. And it could have been even worse. The jury was only unanimous on eight counts while 10 counts were declared a mistrial.

Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, told a judge that Trump explicitly instructed him to break campaign-finance laws by paying two women not to publicly disclose the affairs they had with Trump. Those two women are believed to be Karen McDougal, a Playboy model, and Stormy Daniels, a pornstar. Trump had an affair with both while married to his current wife, Melania.

And then to no surprise, Fox News pundits spun this in the only way they know how. Sara Carter on Hannity said that the FBI and the Department of Justice are colluding as if it's some sort of deep-state conspiracy. Does someone want to tell her that the FBI is literally a part of the DOJ?

The Republican Party has for too long let Trump get away with criminal behavior, and it's long past time to, at the very least, remove Mr. Trump from office.

And then Trump should face the consequences for the crimes he has committed. Yes, Democrats have a role, too. But Republicans have control of both chambers of Congress, so they head every committee. They have the power to subpoena Trump's tax returns, which they have not. They have the power to subpoena key witnesses in their Russia investigations, which they have not.

For the better part of a year I have been asking myself what is the breaking point with Republicans and Trump. It does not seem like there is one, so for the time being we're stuck with a president who paid off two women he had an affair with in an attempt to influence a United States election.

Imagine for a second that any past president had done even a fraction of what Trump has.

Barack Obama got eviscerated for wearing a tan suit. If he had affairs with multiple women, then Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell would be preparing to burn him at the stake. If they won't, then Trump's enthusiastic would be more than happy to do so.

For too long we've been saying that Trump is heading down a road similar to Nixon, but it's evident now that we're way past that point. Donald Trump now has incriminating evidence against him to prove he's a criminal, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller is just getting started.

Will Trump soften the blow and resign in disgrace before impeachment like Nixon did? Knowing his fragile ego, there's honestly no telling what he'll do. But it's high time Trump leaves an office he never should have entered in the first place.

Beto O'Rourke Is The Future For The Democratic Party

Democrats need a new voice, and now they have him.

287

As a self-professed progressive, the 2016 presidential election was one of the darkest days of my life. Every day I wish that the election had turned out differently. But if there's a silver lining, the Democratic Party has almost completely reinvented itself and has a chance to move forward.

Barack Obama was an amazing leader for the party for a decade. Hillary Clinton was arguably the most-flawed candidate the modern-day Democratic Party has ever nominated, and she lost to the most-flawed Republican ever nominated. So now the Democrats need someone to look up to and lead the way past the regressive presidency of Donald Trump. That man is Beto O'Rourke.

O'Rourke is a representative of Texas's 16th congressional district, which covers the city of El Paso. But right now people in the political world know him as the guy who is running against arguably the most-hated man in the Senate, Ted Cruz. Former House Speaker and fellow Republican John Boehner once said that Cruz is "Lucifer in the flesh."

Cruz prides himself in being hated by Washington politicians, but hatred from his current colleagues could come back to bite him. "If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you," said Lindsey Graham, Republican senator from South Carolina.

If O'Rourke wins in November, he'll take down Cruz, who is one of the most powerful and influential Republicans in Washington despite being hated. And it could launch Beto to even higher office someday.

Even if he loses to Cruz, Beto has an extremely bright future ahead of him because he's just what the Democratic Party needs right now. He's young, passionate, communicates extremely well and is a perfect representation of what the face of the party should be.

This year, O'Rourke has been setting an example of how Democrats should run their campaigns. Beto has traveled to every single one of Texas's 254 counties. Ever since the Supreme Court's decision on Citizens United v. FEC (2010), Democrats have pushed for campaign finance reform, and O'Rourke is leading by example with his campaign. Beto has taken $0 from Political Action Committees (PACs). All of his money comes from individual donors. Cruz has taken PAC money, but O'Rourke still holds a significant advantage in fundraising.

O'Rourke in his campaign emphasizes that Texas has among the highest immigration populations in the United States, but the senators from Texas, Cruz and John Cornyn, do not accurately represent the diversity of the state. O'Rourke has separated himself from Cruz by speaking out against the proposed border wall and the separation of immigrant children at the border.

I'm not from Texas, but I'm just as excited for this senate race as I was when Doug Jones won in my home state almost a year ago. Beto O'Rourke has an opportunity to make positive change in our country and actually bring people together. If he doesn't win in November, Beto should make plans for 2020 because he can become the face of the Democratic Party.
