Combating Feminist Revisionist History
Feminist have completely rewritten history so much so that it is tantamount to the Nazis winning WWII. Imagine then that throughout culture it was simply common knowledge that in the past, the Jews ruled over everything and were the oppressors of the German people. Good thing payback and discrimination was enacted against them the common German would think. It is not so different post feminist occupied America.
Something I've noticed that is lacking in the MRA community is a counterforce and confrontation to feminist revisionist history. I find that when you bring up present concerns with women or feminists as soon as you have a point they revert back to some imaginary time in the past and legitimize any injustice upon men, boys husbands and fathers as rightful payback for the years that women were treated like "slaves" and "animals".
Through women's revisionist history they have managed to make themselves out to be the victims of all humanity. It will take time to analyse and expose these things but it must be done. MOST ALL AMERICANS HAVE BOUGHT INTO feminist lies of one sort or another. Feminists are master manipulators.
"YOUR LEGAL PROPERTY. You deprived us, women, of the right to divorce, own property, get custody of our children, denied us access to education and high paying jobs to support ourselves, legally took any wages we did manage to earn away from us. You beat us, and raped us in the name of "marital relations". You deprived us of the right to vote. You prostituted us and you even murdered us."
First of all women were not kept tied up like dogs. Chivalry, reverence and elevation of women was common. Jan 5, 1643 was the first recorded divorce in the American colonies. In the first record of a legal divorce in the American colonies, Anne Clarke of the Massachusetts Bay Colony is granted a divorce from her absent and adulterous husband.
You see, adultery along with domestic violence was forbidden. Legislation was enacted in the American colonies that outlawed domestic violence in 1641. It was not common for women to be beaten by their husbands. Women didn't walk around the town square bruised, injured with black eyes and broken bones. Would you like to guess which gender has always reserved the right to slap and scorn the other since the Victorian era at least...women.
Yes, husbands were considered the head of the household and solely responsible for the welfare and wellbeing of his wife and children. Men were expected to be the religious and spiritual leaders of their family as well. You come from a very sick place lady and your view on the world is entirely warped.
Upon female ownership of property, women and children were considered the core of society and as such inheritance was passed down to male offspring. A male with resources had a good chance of being a suitor to a woman who would accept his devotion to her in marriage. Men must work and provide money and all the needs and lifestyle he could possibly afford her and his children. Women owned plenty of family possessions which is different from property or business which was passed on through male offspring.
"denied us access to education and high paying jobs to support ourselves"
Women have attended schooling since the very founding of the American colonies onward. College was uncommon for the vast majority of people of both genders for a long time. There was no such thing as "high paying jobs". We were largely an agrarian society until the Industrial Revolution. I suppose we could have asked women to do this work but I'm sure most thought it improper for a woman to slave her ass off with arduous and intense muscular labor. Furthermore, why would a woman want to support herself, she has a devoted husband who would get down on one knee, offer her gold and jewels and support her FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AND AFTER. Living by one's self, making a life for one's self alone and thus "supporting yourselves" was unheard of. Back then the relationship between men and women and thus the formation of family was sacred.
"Legally took any wages we did manage to earn away from us."
Family income was always shared. Yes, the man was the one expected to make financial decisions for his family. Women have been in the workforce for quite some time despite popular belief, especially among the lower classes. Yes, a wife would bring home wages and her husband would make decisions on how best to use what they could pull together to support his family.
There were no products like you think of today, no major amenities NO CONSUMER CULTURE FILLED WITH GOODIES OF ALL KINDS. EVERYTING was made of metal, wood, glass, plant material or stone...EVERYTHING.
We are talking money spent for to provide for the basic necessities of the family. There was no strong and affluent middle class.
"You beat us, and raped us in the name of "marital relations"
Your idea that rape was a common form of marital relations is absurd. If you mean that part of a wifes expected reciprocal duty to her husband was to be sexually available to him even when one is not in the mood for it yes, this was expected of wives.
JUST LIKE YOU, MEN HAVE A SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE CYCLE. Our bodies need to release at regular intervals. Masturbation and spilling ones seed alone and onto the ground was considered vile. It is still deeply hurtful and humiliating for a man to go to the bathroom and masturbate or to do so to pornography when his wife is in the other room. How hard is it to lay on your side for him???
"You deprived us of the right to vote."
Actually Anti-Suffragism was a political movement composed mainly of women.
Men never denied women the right to vote....they never asked for it and when they did many women were against it..not men. Furthermore non land owning men could not vote either. Only those who owned land had the right to vote. Men gained suffrage and women gained it sometime later...when they asked for it.
Also voting was considered a family decision. Men and women were not separate socio-political and socio-economic classes in conflict with each other as we are now. It was one vote per family and men were considered the public speakers of their family. Men and women were virtually one back then. The family and the mated pair bond WAS the individual economic, social and political unit.
"You prostituted us and you even murdered us."
Murder of ones husband or wife has always been a capitol offense under law. As far as prostitution goes would you like to know the fate of young lower class men??? You prostitute yourselves so don't give me that argument. Try being conscripted as cannon fodder in war so men can provide you the territory and resources you demand we provide to you.
Women were not only protected like children and infantilized they were not accountable for their actions by law nor held to much of any regard to be responsible for anything. It is not much different to this day.
