Barack Obama, having decided that women and girls have it hard in his mean old patriarchy ( what with living longer than males, being murdered four times less often, committing suicide four times less often, going to college more often, getting lighter sentences and fines for the same crime, etc etc ) has come to the conclusion that they need something called the “White House Council on Women and Girls” to ensure that the Important Sex gets even more gravy on their roast beef than they already do now. According to Obama, the council is meant to…
” establish a coordinated Federal response to issues that particularly impact the lives of women and girls and to ensure that Federal programs and policies address and take into account the distinctive concerns of women and girls…”
Because as we all know, the American Government doesn’t already “take into account the distinctive concerns of women and girls.”
He added in a speech filled with the usual feminist lies…
“when women still earn just 78 cents for every dollar men make”
Needless to say he didn’t point out that most of this difference is due to justifiable factors like longer hours, etc.
” when one in four women still experiences domestic violence in their lifetimes”
Again, he fails to point out that this figure is grossly inflated by a definition of violence that includes for example, shoving, and that when we use such a broad definition, one in four men will also suffer such “violence” in their lifetimes.
“when women are more than half of our population, but just 17 percent of our Congress”
Without pointing out that this is primarily because most of the people with the intellect, drive and intention to achieve these positions are men. After all, half the population has IQs below the average of 100, so shouldn’t we do something to get them “equal representation”? Of course not, at least not until that 50% is composed solely of women and girls – you know, the sex that actually matters.
Along the way he adds this hypocritical gem…
“It’s a Council with a mission that dates back to our founding: to fulfill the promise of our democracy for all our people.”
Except the male ones. One would think that a man who is half black would have looked around at the fact that it it’s black men who are slaughtered and locked up in huge numbers, not black women, much less white women, and reasoned that perhaps it is his sex that is in need of help. But ideology and reason rarely meet and Obama is clearly no exception. Now let’s get this straight, I have no ideological objection to the Government helping those who need help, but that’s those who need help, not those who merely want it. Set up a council on Blacks, on the disabled, and yes, on men and boys, but Western women are already afloat in a bubble bath of privilege , and they don’t need any more. I think i’m going to find this guy very disappointing. I guess i bought the idea that someone seen as black would have a better feel for injustices – the real ones not the imagined ones – than a white person does, but alas the only thing Obama has a feel for is political correctness.
