Do you believe there is a war on women in the United States of America? If so, what do you think it is? Do you identify with the feminist goals of old or the ones of today and how would you define them? Lastly, if you do believe there is a war on women, how would you propose females combat said acts of war?

Awesome response! I agree division is the end result of this and it seems to be spreading all over the western world.
Division is their plan Rhonda, but people like us will stop them..You see what's going on, because your too smart for them..Now ask this: Why would they be deliberately trying to brainwash & depress us, what are they trying to distract us from?.
Ian your question makes my day. I think it's distraction from the global elite trying to institute a one world government in which everyone becomes a slave.
Yes Rhonda you are correct, & I am impressed that you can see it..However think about life like this: What if we're actually here to become enlightened & ascend, but their trying to stop everyone because they know they won't/can't ever ascend
RTalloni, thank you for taking the time to leave such an inspiring comment. I must admit, its refreshing :). God bless you!
Thank you very much wba108 for answering. Again, a most refreshing, honest opinion. Very cool. I can't agree more about the abortion and pornography on demand hurting us all, not just women.
Couldn't have said it better myself..... Dad!
A typical response from the fundamentalist patriarchal community and the women who support their Pauline views.
wba, what are the fallacious lies about men that you are referring to? That they pay women less? That they don't financially support their children? That they abuse their wives? It's on the evening news every night.
While I agree in this country it is a politicized tool of the left and mostly BS, I do see female child enslavement/prostitution as a symptom of the war no one is talking about. In other countries there's no doubt there's a war on women. PP for fig
Yes, well I was just addressing the question, in the US. What goes on in the rest of the world can be unimaginable on all sorts of levels and for other groups than just women, how about the war on Christianity. What does "PP for fig" mean?
You gave your opinion, I gave facts.
Facts? Yeah, about before the Civil War? How about the 21st century like 57,000,000 babies dead at the hands of their mothers? Living in the past and ignoring the progress that has been made isn't factual, it's dishonest opinion.
tsadjatko - while I despise them with a passion, PP is for Planned Parenthood. They brag on the stats constantly thinking the millions of babies they killed to be some warped badge of honor. It really is in the millions.
Its amazing that the Democrats can get away with a lie this big, then again maybe that's why they're able to pull it off because nobody expects such a blatant lie.
I think that's exactly how they get away with it, just as you say, no one expects a lie that big. Further, they believe and its sadly true that if one repeats a lie enough folks will buy it.
May I gently suggest that everyone do a little research? The number of abortions in this country is falling. And it was never in the millions as you claim. Those are facts whether you are a Republican or a Democrat.
Hear, hear, I found myself on the street with two children, kicked out by a drug addict husband who kept me from finishing college. I struggled to support them and to finish my education. I guess I am now a rabid feminist.
It's sad but I think the rights you mention that the young grew up with are about to be in question again in the current political climate. Personally, I would like to see modern feminist get away from the pills/abortion issue & address slavery i
OldRoses: While you have some valid points, I am sorry, but have to disagree with your remark that woman can not afford birth control. Way back (ha) in the 70's I found them free at PP and although I don't like PP, they have always offered them free.
Well I take my hat off to you MizBejabbers, & if someone shows the kind of love that you must have done for your children & life itself..Then i can't imagine that love will be taken away at death, love & life wouldn't do that to a person.
Shellys-space, not everyone has access to PP thanks to the War on Women which has been very successful in shutting down many PP facilities. Conservatives violate our freedoms by imposing their values on everyone.
Being less fortunate has nothing to do with being a woman, though. Also, people must stop living in the past, that is the problem.
fpherj48, the term "war on women" refers to the efforts by Republicans to roll back the progress that we Boomer women fought for and won. They want women out of the workplace, uneducated, barefoot and pregnant, totally dependent on men.
Ridiculous. No female should or would stand for such ignorance. I, of all people, whose Mom worked full-time in the '50's & sis & I were educated. How do repubs explain hating welfare? That's where"dependent" women & kids go when the MAN
fpherj48, I totally agree. We live in frightening times thanks to the ignorance of Republicans & young people who don't know how awful life was before women were allowed access to abortion, birth control, education & good jobs.
Thank you very much for a really cool answer Kelechi. I agree both are important issues but should not be paid for with tax dollars. Personally, i would rather see said dollars go to feed hungry children since birth control is less than a burger.
Equal treatment? Yes except if you are a baby human being in the womb. Shouldn't they get to "choose for themselves" too, about half of them are (will be) women. "ALL people are created equally" doesn't that mean they are created @ conception?
Kelechi, taxpayers can either pay for birth control and abortion or they can pay for welfare and food stamps to support the children that result from unplanned pregnancies. Which is preferable to conservatives?
OR Your dilemma is caused by liberalism not conservatism.Taxpayers need not pay for either if they choose Conservative policies that choose life over murder,self reliance over the government dole.A safety net is not supposed to be away of life.
Tsadjatko, the sad fact is that fathers do not support their children and mothers are forced to work but aren't paid as much as men thanks to conservative policies. How is this pro-life?
Here, here! The persecution of women around the globe resulting in rape, slavery and death are horrendous while too many here moan over a few pills. Sadly, more and more girls here are being taken for the sex trade too. Thank you for your input!
We've fought hard to get these rights you mention. Women driving tractors on farms, flying untested airplanes to Canada during WWII, working to keep this country going during the war. You can't stuff the genie back into the bottle.
shellys-space, I'd love to hear more about the "battles Christian women face in the secular society". The only battles that I am aware of involve Christian women trying to impose their values on non-Christian women and deny them their rights.
OldRoses: The battles Christian women face are remarks like the one you just made, I never have tried to impose my values on you. I have not always been a Christian and used to lean more to the left, but even then I was dead-set against abortion.
Shellys-space, then who are all those women trying to shut down abortion clinics? Who are all those women who want to cut off the poor from food stamps and health insurance? Are they Christian impostors?
OldRoses: You want people to depend on the Government to survive, while "conservatives" want people to thrive by supporting themselves with better jobs. High taxation is a job-killer. BTW, many Christians serve the poor food at kitchens daily.
I'm sorry, shellys-space, but experience has proven again and again that high taxes are NOT job killers. Yes, we lost a lot of jobs during the recession, but taxes were also at historically low levels. It was greed by the rich that killed jobs.
Fashion-Guru, to what rights are you referring? Being allowed to vote? Equal pay for equal work? Equal opportunity for education? Self-defense against abusers? Deadbeat dad laws? Abortion rights? Access to birth control?
Beautifully put. I think the best example of what you and I are saying is Iran. Back in the 1970s, Iranians, led by religious fanatics, toppled the Shah and replaced him with a religious government. And then discovered that it was hell not heaven.
I like you mention how ERA was never approved. While I can't agree with everything, the spirit of equality/freedom for all shines through and that I admire greatly. Interesting, suffrage actually came out of a deal to get fems to support the war.
