When I was younger, at work, I held a door for a woman that had one hand full. As I opened it she said something to the effect that she was capable of opening the door for herself.
I immediately cut in front and pulled the door shut behind.
I assume that at some point the war on men will evolve to this.
I'm all for women being independent, working, etc. I am not so much for the perspective that men are somehow historically behind a grand conspiracy to hold women down. It interests me how the push for women to assume jobs 'historically' held by men has sprouted only as those jobs have become increasingly less risky of life and limb. It interests me more how the mentality of keeping women out of jobs such as coal mining, soldiering, heavy labor, etc. is seen as somehow holding women back rather than caring about women's well being. Currently women live longer than men on average. Let's see how that plays out as more traditional men's roles are filled by women. Let's see if progressive generations of women disabuse themselves of the notion of 'having it all', because men 'traditionally' grew up with no such illusion. They worked and provided and they watched their children grow, largely as strangers, because of this. The current narrative would have people believe that men did this because they do not care about children, family, whatever was outside their career and the male power base. Oddly the majority of male's historical experience with power has been as it's base...holding up and building the artifices of power for those few at the top. Yes, the few mainly male at the top, but that hardly matters when you look at the 'glass ceiling' that has existed for millennia for the rest of males (i.e., those not born into power or wealth).
Frankly, the greatest power one can have is control over the shaping of future generations...that's why the State is always so eager to gain that control...and it is one willingly being handed off by women and the men who follow them. Then again, you know, the 'traditional patriarchy' didn't have the best of intentions toward women as today's feminist leaders do. No, the old patriarchy was not as altruistic and enlightened toward all as the new Masters...errr, Mistresses...Missus'...female leaders show themselves to be. As far as a revolution the feminist one has been particularly unbloody. It's almost as if males, 99% of whom were raised by females, were preconditioned to do as instructed by the women in their lives. It's all very odd to say the least.
