Traditional Gender Roles Alive and Well in Canada

In a recent study by Plan International Canada, 81% of Canadian women felt that they were still expected to cook, clean, and take care of children while men fix the car.

As expected, the study failed to report what percentage of women said that they enjoyed Traditional Gender Roles in the home.

Let’s be honest.  Plan International Canada didn’t phrase these questions fairly.  They’re clearly looking for “gender inequality”.  So a question may have been something like “are you expected to cook, clean, and look after children while your husband fixes the car?”  Women who enjoy TGR relationships would have answered with “yes, and I love it!”  But Plan International Canada only reported that the women said yes and that, they say, is a sign that gender equality is moving at a snail’s pace in Canada.

To me, it seems that this is a good indication that Traditional Gender Roles are alive and well in the nation.  Canada reached total gender equality in the 1990s and 2000s, so people are naturally reverting to Traditional Gender Roles just as they did in Scandinavia after complete gender equality was achieved there in the 1980s.

Feminist Doublethink

In George Orwell’s novel 1984, the dystopian government was capable of causing the population to “doublethink” – that is, to hold two opposing, conflicting, and incompatible views at the same time.

Today’s feminists want us to buy into their doublethink.  They complain that underage girls are forced to dress in sexually suggestive clothing strictly for “the male gaze”, but when women 18 or over dress in sexually suggestive clothing, they claim it has nothing to do with men, it’s supposed to be empowering and makes a woman feel good about herself.

What changes on a girl’s 18th birthday that makes her clothing go from wanting the male gaze to simply dressing for herself?  The answer is nothing.  It’s just a way of making you hold two opposing viewpoints at the same time.

Don’t get me wrong.  I abhor the sexualization of children.  Little girls should dress like little girls and not be pressured into dressing in any manner to gain male attention.

But let’s be honest.  If that’s what girls under 18 are doing for male attention, they’re doing it over the age of 18 for male attention, too.  A girl’s 18th birthday doesn’t magically liberate her from the need to feel desired.  On the contrary, it empowers her to do all she can to feel it.  When a woman wears a tight, short dress, she’s trying to gain male attention.  You know it, I know it, and she knows it.  Feminism would have you believe otherwise.

Feminism is as evil as “The Party” from Orwell’s 1984.  Everything they say and do is contradictory, hypocritical, and just plain wrong.

Thank God that evil movement is dying.
