Dear Feminists





20s-cool-girls1

I root loudly for my football team. My favorite drink after a stressful day is a scotch neat. Preferably Glenlivet. Infants scare me, but I don’t call them “things” or “it.” I don’t turn up my nose at friends getting married. I celebrate with them, and I demand an open bar at their wedding reception if they want a present. I will not wear suits with shoulder pads. I will not take back saying that my stay at home mom had a harder job than any TA at Bryn Mawr. Ya’ll didn’t raise me.

I do not think I’m better than a man simply because I have mammaries and he doesn’t. I never see myself as a victim of the patriarchy. I see my self as a victim of my own stupid decisions. I don’t see the world in terms of men vs. women. I see the world in terms of kind people and assholes. I try to be former and minimize the inclination to be the latter. I’m sorry you think that my support of Sarah Palin is traitorous. I’m not sorry I can defend her record better than you can defend Barack Obama’s. I don’t apologize for adhering to conservative principles. I’m told that makes me an apostate. I never belonged to your faith to begin with. I don’t need activists, politicians and bored, guilty celebrities ”empowering” me. I can do that my damn self. I don’t need to run around saying that I am a “strong and independent woman” fifty times a day. I know I am, and that’s really the only person to whom that should matter.

I refuse to tear down another woman simply because I disagree with her. I will always give her the courtesy of a strong argument. I know that I need to work hard, pick my battles and accept there are some things in this life that are always going to be unfair. I won’t fight that. I’ll ride with that.

I don’t expect any welcome to the Feminists’ Playground. I just want them to know, that the playground just got a little more crowded.

Sincerely,

Tex

 

Thanks to my far more eloquent political sister @whitneypitcher for reminding of #InternationalWomen’sDay and my feelings about it. I like this sisterhood. It has cooler members.

    It’s the women that talk catty about Gov. Palin that make me maddest. They’re either easily seduced by girl gossip which they don’t bother to verify, or they’re posers who don’t give blue collar women the dignity they deserve. I know and I came from women who made their own way just like Gov. Palin — resilient and tough and capable of whatever they put their minds to do.

    Grrrrrrr.

    TexMex joins C4P and starts off with a sharp riposte to the Leftist-Feminist agenda.
    Conservative women such as Gov. Palin are showing that there is a smarter and more attractive alternative to what has become the socialist women movement.
