From WallStreet to the Street women are being reduced to sexual objects...is this the culture woman have fought so hard to have? How far have we come? Where are we going? We are not just window dressing for a male dominated world...we are thinking beings fighting our way to survival...to be stared at, and treated as though we are dogs in a dog show....judged for our every feature or defect and outward appearance for a mate's sexual approval and our breedability...is to disregard the fact that we are intelligent beings on equal footing with men. To see this in 2014 is disheartening. We need to curb this now. Commercials and videos have as thrusting our buts and breasts around joggling them as if to win a ribbon for the most fuckable...and man children on the streets are unable to separate the WallStreet illusion that all woman are here to service their sexual thoughts and whims instead of to live with autonomy and self actualization of their brains and being. This is not equality. WallStreet is creating this culture ...do we want to perpetuate it ? Think about your daughter and the world you would want for her. It is time to bring back feminism and female equality ...women are not your sweethearts. We aren't here for your pleasure. We aren't here just to breed as government would seem to also believe...giving women who do a way to upward mobility, access to higher education, and support....where the woman who chooses to abstain from children faces lower wages, job stagnation, and an education gap. Then forced to be dominated by male bosses and co workers who reduce her to the same...window dressing in their workplace...the underlings who service them and make their coffee and are told to smile and look pretty. Or in retail where they are paid less than their male counterparts in places like WalMart. Waitresses must endure the worst being treated slightly better than hookers who must smile to earn your cash, make two dollars an hour with no benefits and have no union to represent them. It always amazes me that a garbage guy makes 70,000 to pick up trash...(more than or around the same as most nurses who have college degrees and must pay back student loans to boot).
How many men are told to smile at work on a daily basis? I guess they are allowed to display a neutral face where we must contort ours to look pleasant and kind...slightly perked and puckered...ready to smile if not already and express benevolance and approachability in our eyes and body language. Forget your tension headache or migraine or concentration on your work...it is apparently far more important to look pretty and pleasant than to do a good job. Women also need to do their part not to condone and perpetuate sexism...to stop violently competing with and bullying underlings...we need to lift and support one another. To do otherwise is giving in to the idea that underneath it all we must compete for fuckability and male judgement. And if we do need to do this succeed..then our reaction should be outrage and opposition to the culture creating the rules not degrade ourselves and adhere to it. If you are threatened by a subordinates good looks...then how far have women really come? It says a lot.
