All across Facebook, WordPress and just about any other social media/blogging sites I see them over and over. Post after post about the power of women. “Man gets owned by female ju-jitsu fighter”, “Time to celebrate the power of women in the workplace”, blah, blah, blah.
I wonder if anyone realizes that if men decided to take it all back, all the “power” that women have, women would be powerless to stop them. In the blink of an eye women would go from having it all to having nothing. Don’t believe me? Just look at the Middle East. If women have such power, why are they still in such subjugation in those countries? Why hasn’t “the power of women” saved them from honor killings, or beatings or being raped?
I certainly don’t wish this upon society, but I do think women need an awakening as to THEIR privilege. To the benefits they enjoy from living in a male built society where they are afforded security and opportunity. Where men keep them from being subjugated, hell, where men even keep them from paying the consequences of their actions!
We all know this won’t happen, though.
