    Logic is the cement of our civilization, with which we ascend from chaos, using reason as our guide.

    Expose Feminist lies: Women rulers = perfect society , Gender: a social construct, Feminism is for everyone, Feminists research, Domestic Violence: A gender problem, Rape Culture exists, More Women on Board, Women are not violent, Women don't Rape, Wage Gap, Males have privileges, Best of Interest of child,Women were denied history

    Female Privileges: Upbringing , Career, Education, Employment, Crime, Family Court, Community Responsibility

    This is an attack on Western Feminism, Western Neoliberalism, and the Western tendency to elevate the interests of the impersonal business world above family, emotion, and all non-utilitarian values. It's also an attack on protestantism and puritanism which is behind neoliberalism and western feminism, which holds work, hard work, production, to be something each individual should sacrifice his whole entire life towards maximizing, at the expense of non-material things of value. And it's an attack on western materialism.

    ‘mere degree isn’t empowerment’

    Empowerment of women does not come merely with a graduation or a PG degree, said Dr V Shanta, veteran doctor and chairperson of the Adyar Cancer Institute. Speaking at the convention, Dr Shanta said real empowerment comes when women have an understanding of their capabilities and are able to take independent decisions.

    “Gone are those days when women sat as mute spectators,” she said. She added that women today needed to take decisions on all concerns — be it for their education or career. Speaking about the need for women to be empowered, she said, “Empowerment cannot be given to you on a golden platter, it should come from within you.”

    “Going to pubs or consuming cigarettes will not make you empowered,” she said, and asked women not to treat marriage casually. “It is important to be a good mother and a good wife, as they shape the future of the county. It cannot be treated casually,” she said. “Women have a multiplicity of duties,” she added.

    “Does the education system address these challenges?” she asked. Even though there has been empowerment, the process has been painfully slow and more has to be done in the area, she said. She added that empowerment does not have to result in conflict between the genders. “Equality is not about one being better than the other, it is giving respect to each other,” she said.
    Notice how they articulate what I notice the Western Media NEVER articulates -- which is such points as how empowerment of women is more complicated than merely acquiring a degree or consuming all of the latest products the business world wants to market to women.
