Elijah Muhammad's national representative, Minister Malcolm X was an icon of the early 1960s. He spoke out against the silly philosophy of "turn the other cheek, love thy enemy", nonviolence.
Malcolm declared: "We declare our rights on this earth, to be a man; to be a human being; to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being, in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!!!"
Feminism did not exist during Malcolm's era.
Women did not even wear pants during his time.
When people lived on farms and did manual labor, there was no dispute about who chopped down trees to build the houses & boats; or who drew water from the well. It was obvious what a woman's place was then, and it should be obvious now.

Yeah, because we all know a man's ability to chop down trees comes in handy when he's writing code or doing gene transfers.

You're not helping your cause with that line of reasoning.

Gee, I don't know. One of my favorite old songs is "I Hold the Lantern While Mother Chops the Wood."

You know what the vast majority of feminists want Mayor?
"to be a human being; to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being, in this society, on this earth, in this day"
Sound familiar? How can anyone repeat an impassioned claim to the rights and dignity due a human being, then immediately follow that with a statement denigrating and disempowering a full half of all human beings?
Hypocrisy just doesn't seem strong enough a word somehow; like when people got so stupid we had to invent "fucktarded" to describe them? So this is what, fuckpocrisy, shitpocrisy?

I realized from the site name that he was a black power type of guy. My point was he's arguing that things were so much better when women were submissive and had no rights, and that that holds as much water as a white supremacist arguing that things were so much better when blacks were submissive and had no rights. Something tells me he would vehemently disagree with the latter point of view, but that he's incapable of seeing the hypocrisy of hating the latter outlook but wholeheartedly embracing the former.

I re-read closer. I understand. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I wish you people would grow up and get a clue.
Many families ended up nearly all female or male, women worked the fields and many men (boys, grandparents) worked the kitchens, hearth. Division of labour fell to chance, age and limited options. You never saw old west photos of women behind the plow or chopping wood?
Guess not, since you never noticed the women (especially on farms) wearing pants in the sixties. I really can't take anyone seriously that's never paid attention.

Does this guy not realise how hugely the last two paragraphs clash with the first two?!

Why even bring up Malcolm X? What does he have to do with anything?
7/24/2012 12:48:26 AM
perhaps. but now submersible pumps draw water from the well and contractors build the house. and a corporate logging company harvests the lumber.
oh the times, they are-a changing

You know, I have this weird feeling that Malcolm X would hit you for using him to oppress people. IDK, just seems like something he wouldn't like.
