Why is feminism not about empowering women?

Women used to be proud of who and what they were. They were daughters, and moms, and teachers, and nurses and they loved using their empathy and compassion to take care of people. They were also brilliant. There were so few female writers, scientists, pilots, freedom fighters and yet everyone knows the names of the brilliant women who did accomplish great things in those fields. Being a woman didn't stop Agatha Christie, Marie Curie, Amelia Earhart or Harriet Tubman. They didn't have to pretend to be men. They didn't have to dress, and act like men or sue for men to include them. They did their jobs better than everyone else and they were accepted and appreciated for that.

Redefining Racism

Racism is not when someone points out differences between groups. In fact, differences between groups should be celebrated not treated like an insult. It's not racism when someone from a different group does, says, wears, or otherwise "appropriates" something from another group. If the person doing, saying, wearing, or what have you was racist they would think that the "others" group was inferior and NOT "appropriate" their culture. I guarantee you no Nazi was "appropriating" Jewish culture.

Speak your mind!

After we finished reading and watching a video about them, I asked the children in my class how they felt about what these people did. I asked them if they thought that people have the right to be able to tell their King or government no and do what they believe. I wasn't sure how they would answer.

Why does fear trump logic in society?

I read articles and see news casters all the time talking about how they would never sit down and have a conversation with someone they disagree with. How you should never give them a platform or trying to get someone they disagree with platformed. I don't care which side of the isle it's on. I saw the same thing written about The View and CNN from the Right as I see about Joe Rogan from the Left, even before Whoopi's ignorant racism and the evidence that no one at CNN can keep it in their pants.

Americans Hate History

The funny thing about Americans is that they actually think they know History. They hear a story here and there about an event and think they understand the complexities of the world. Of course, to most Americans the world is just America and everyone since the dawn of time has had the same morality. None of which is true of course.

Whoopi another person cancelled

People seemed to have forgotten what civil disagreements are. Now if anyone says anything that they disagree with, even out of ignorance like Whoopi, they are to be punished to the full extent. This Jewish race conversation was a perfect opportunity for a teaching moment. The View should have scheduled guests on that were Holocaust survivors and/or historians to speak to the women about the reality of the time.
