"Marriage" is culturally specific. As I have no idea which banana tree you live under---and no interest--- I don't know to which system of "marriage" and "wife" you allude.

No wonder you don't have a wife. Who would stand for the likes of a (grwon?) man that spends all day writing nonsense in the comments section of a blog he dislikes. Get a life (or another man to scratch your "little" head, turd-burgler!!!

The explicit goal of feminism was to replace men in the labor force. That this replacment would occur at lower wage levels was generally understood (It's the fault of those bad men.) Keeping blue collar wages up was not ever a goal of feminism, not remotely.

Feminism was a good deal for female lawyers and doctors. It was a bad deal for the wives of UAW workers. No wonder that only 20%of young women,endorse the thing.

Jonny Murlt and his brave ruffians!

Bedouin father of 67 seeks ninth wife ‘There are many women who wish to marry me,’ man tells Israeli media. With eight wives and 67 children, Shahadeh Abu Arrar has given new meaning to the term “family man.”
Abu Arrar, 58, is a member of Israel’s impoverished Bedouin Arab community. But even in a traditional nomadic society where men commonly have several wives and many children, Abu Arrar is exceptional.
“I’m thinking about a new wife, No. 9,” he told the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot in a recent interview. “There are many women who wish to marry me and there is no lack of women. I never had a problem with such thingsAbu Arrar, whose oldest child is 37, was photographed by the newspaper in a long Bedouin robe and head cover, surrounded by a dozen of so of his kids.
During a visit to his multistory home in central Israel, The Associated Press spotted 17 of the children milling about, dressed in bright red, blue and green-embroidered Palestinian dresses and headscarves. Four veiled women, including two who said they were his wives, sat on the porch peeling vegetables.
Abu Arrar refused to talk to an AP reporter.
Bedouin society allows polygamy
While Islam allows Muslim men to have four co-wives, it is a custom in Bedouin society to flout the already-generous ruling — and an Israeli ban on polygamy — by marrying women one at a time, divorcing them and marrying others, experts on Bedouin culture said.
Culturally, it’s understood that the renounced wives are still married to Abu Arrar, the experts said.
It’s unclear how Abu Arrar supports his massive family. Camels, goats and a cow were grazing on his property. Yediot said he also receives about $1,700 in government handouts each month. According to the Israeli Interior Ministry, Abu Arrar has 53 children registered as Israeli citizens. He has 14 other children born to Palestinian wives in the West Bank and who are not eligible for Israeli citizenship, his other wives said.
Either way, his family size pales in comparison to the size of the average Israeli family: 2.3, according to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics.
Splits time among wives
Abu Arrar claims to remember all his children’s names, and says they are split almost evenly between boys and girls. And he’s still going strong.
“My first wife is my age, and today I hardly spend any time with her. Her children are big, and I leave her alone. I have younger wives to spend time with. Every night I decide which wife to be with,” Abu Arrar told the newspaper.
Activists said Abu Arrar’s story showed the urgency of raising literacy and education among Bedouin women. Many are pressured into marriage or feel they have no other options beside raising children, said Khadra al-Sani, director of Sidra, a Bedouin women’s rights group.

As 10:41 anon observes: for some people "feminism" means "pro-female/anti-male." This is the same order of vulgarism as Asad's railings against "Jews" "Americans" and "white people."

Y'all need to unpack the invisible knapsack:

As we in women's studies work to reveal male privilege and ask men to give up some of their power, so one who writes about having white privilege must ask, "having described it, what will I do to lessen or end it?"

After I realized the extent to which men work from a base of unacknowledged privilege, I understood that much of their oppressiveness was unconscious.

2007-10-16T10:24:00.000-07:00

Midwest:
It’s not about Paris Hilton, but about billions of women who have a choice other than getting married as a teenager, having one baby after another, and cooking and cleaning until they die. I’m not saying every choice made is admirable, but men who have always had the option of opting out of their traditional lifestyle haven’t always made admirable choices. How many do you think decided to dedicate their lives to art and enlightenment compared to those who decided to dedicate their lives to whoring, drinking, and gambling? But the options are between deciding what you want to do with your life and letting some hypocritical elite deciding for you.

2007-10-16T09:44:00.000-07:00

"The glass ceiling" is a live issue for one-tenth of a percent of women, if that many. "Who is going to raise my children, while I'm undercutting the unionized department store staff at Macy's," affects most working women, at some point in their working lives.

Tom#1: It's not really about the Good Guys versus the Bad Guys.

Tom#2: Yes, I think that it's wondeful that Paris Hilton can make porn videos without forfeiting "her place in society" (Whatever that means.) Now can I think about something else?

2007-10-16T08:14:00.000-07:00

Midwest;
Feminism was made possible by modern technology that made upper body strength not the only requirement for most jobs and that also drastically cut down on the time needed to take care of a home. Also, advanced birth control methods freed women from the constant chore of birthing and raising children. Then there was modern communication media such as records, radio, magazines etc. that let individual women know they were not alone in their dissatisfaction with their lot. Finally, there was the influence of political movements such as the civil rights movements and national liberation movements.
Sure, businesses exploited deep seated attitudes in order to pay lower wages for women. But who’s fault is that? Besides, other functions of feminism have been freedom from- or at least awareness- of other issues like rape, sexual abuse, domestic violence, and denial of self fulfillment.

2007-10-16T05:40:00.000-07:00

The primary function of feminism was to shatter the taboo against working women. Women came into the workforce at lower wages levels, thereby depressing wages for all. Now, husbands don't earn enough to support wives and children, and everyone works.

The work of feminism is done.

But kahein
I never said that Jews are not intelligent. I'm only saying that Zionists stole 80% of Palestine and dispossessed the Palestinians. The first statement does not contradict the second.
Too hard to understand? You're obviously not a very clever Jew if you don't see the nuance !

2007-10-16T03:39:00.000-07:00

Whisleblower;
You clearly are an intelligent person, but I would not characterize your posts here as “clear thinking”. You uncritically accept every outlandish assertion posted on any obscure website as long as it confirms your preconceived theories. You take any piece of trivia and twist it into being some nefarious part of a grand conspiracy. Likewise, you dismiss any facts or opinions that contradict your theories as coming from an agent or stooge of all-powerful conspirators. Sort of like the folks at the Flat Earth Society. But I’m not immune to suspecting conspiracies where I have no real evidence. At some of your more ridiculous or hateful posts, I have thought you must be some Israeli who is trying to discredit the Palestinian cause. But I don’t know that. You could be some guy who believes anything he reads on the internet and spends too much time in front of a computer screen.

There is frequent ridicule by every Tom, Dick and Cohen no-nothings and would-be no-nothings against the term „conspiracy theory”, a term well defined by law in cases involving more than one perpetrator. This ridicule is a defense mechanism against the truth. It is thus a mechanism of subtle mind control, designed to stop you from using your ability of clear thinking. The courts of law frequently use the notion of conspiracy, and nobody ridicules them. It is only the peons who get ridiculed when they start to wiggle out of the oligarchy’s thought control.

Take your rights of freedom and use your common sense.

Kahein;
You totally miss the point of the work of all those people you mention. They wanted to benefit all mankind. They didn’t do everything they did so some small minded bigot could use their accomplishments as a pretext to taunt victims of imperialism and throw the word “nigger” around. Besides, I didn’t see your name on that list.
