I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “a woman’s work is never done.” This stems partly from the fact that a multiplicity of roles and responsibilities fall on a woman who has taken advantage of all the rights we are afforded in modern day America, and partly I believe because of the female brain’s ability to multi-task. That last one, as I think most women could attest, is both a blessing and a curse.
Many women across the nation though, decided on Wednesday that their work was done. The feminists in our great nation decided to hijack and pervert their own holiday, International Women’s Day, and turn it into “A Day Without Women.” This caused many teachers, nurses and even congresspeople to walk out of their jobs. I think the idea was to show the world what it would be like if they weren’t there. I’m afraid all they did was show the world what it looks like when women get the idea to throw a tantrum.
I’ve been trying to make sense of it myself; how does being undependable make people appreciate you? How exactly does making yourself look like an entitled brat help people see your value? We as women often expect men to stifle any natural instincts they have that are considered social unacceptable, and yet it’s ok for us to parade our emotional outbursts and bad reasoning skills out in the open and even take over a holiday?
I suppose if one African American can call another racist, then one woman can call another a misogynist, but hey, I’m gonna risk it. We, as women, need to appreciate that we have the privilege and unique ability to do more than just a 9-5. Degrading what we as women are capable of acomplishing to just leaving work in the middle of the day is like using a super computer to play solitaire.
They say that the biggest obstacle to happiness is undervaluing what you have, and over valuing what others have. I still don’t know what women in America don’t have, but maybe if they quite down the protesting a little we would have enough peace and quiet to figure it out.
