Almost always when discussing Feminism there is a person that decides to add to the discussion and proceed to *argle-bargle* on about things when in fact they are proving most adroitly that they cannot find their ass with both hands.

Education is one of the goals of this blog and in that light I present an incomplete, yet succinct list of some of the disadvantages women face both historically and today.

Limited range of motion = weakness, so men invent foot-binding and corsets and neck elongators

Lack of education = weakness, so men create a systemic restriction of education, where women are prohibited from entering (the concept of universal, collegiate education is a 20th c western phenomena, and still hasn’t reached parity in other areas of the world)

Lack of capital = weakness, so men have historically prohibited women from owning property, voting or exercising political, economic or social capital

Lack of agency = weakness, so men devise a system that packages “woman” as something to be owned; fathers own their daughters until they’re “given away” to their husbands, whereupon they’re expected to produce sons on whom the mother is expected to rely in old age

“Femininity”, at its very root, is the male fetishization of an idealized weakness. That’s Feminism 101.
