Feminism: all growed up. {reblog}

I was reading through some of my subscriber’s blogs (by the way, if you are a subscriber to my blog – Thank You! your support is appreciated more than you know!) and I came across a particular article that really caught my attention. In fact, it caught my attention so much that I read through the entire post 3 times.

It was not originally written by the owner of said blog, but he provided the original link which led to yet another fantastic blog written by Gabriel Hudelson.

so I’m going to reblog his post for all of my readers. Girls, this one’s for you. Guys, I guess it can be for you too, depending on how you look at it.

Dear girls,

Feminism is growing up.

It used to be enough for you to claim psychological superiority – to wear the spiritual pants – to hold the esteemed position as the only thing that stood between males and barbarism.

No longer. Now, not only are you better than the guys – but you’re one of them, too.

Not only is the new femme fatale seductive and shapely (sorry, guys, I’m really trying to find semi-modest pictures here), but she is also just as strong, just as fast, just as deadly as the men.

Some of you are just discovering this, but hopefully more and more girls will grow up with this realization instead of finding later that, for so long, they believed the myth that men had something that they needed.

Hopefully this message will reach them while they’re young.

Don’t worry – guys love it when you protect them, save them, lead them, beat them up when they need it. Nothing inspires them like being led into battle by a woman.

It’s no trouble for you, of course – you’re used to doing everything else for them anyway. Besides, the world needs you. Men just can’t do what you can do.

Especially not in a dress and high heels.

The world doesn’t need that whole “gentle and quiet spirit” thing anymore. It’s passé. What do you have to be gentle and quiet about? Anything men can do, you can do better!

Which makes me wonder – what do we need men for, anyway?

They’re so violent.

A Man (I’m sorry about that)

P.S. You may still have my seat on the lifeboat, if you want it.

To view the original post, click HERE. In the original the author provides pictures along the way to drive home the point he is trying to make.

“The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.
There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.
There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.
We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.
We have enough greed; we need more goodness.
We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.
We have enough popularity; we need more purity.”

~ Margaret D. Nadauld

Girls, what are your thoughts on this…?
Guys, do you have anything you’d like to add…?
Does anyone disagree with this or have a differing opinion…?
