This is a very special day, when “the other half of the sky” is cherished and appreciated by us men. Though it’s been hijacked by misandrists, it’s not about that – it’s just our chance to celebrate all women on this day and perhaps one special woman this evening.
I looked at lists of the greatest women in history and you know, it is not people who have promoted misandry, euphemistically termed “women’s rights”, an umbrella term for all sorts of destructive actions, who are great but women who have contributed to humanity as a whole, male and female, adult and child.
This lady gives women a good name:
March 8th [vosmoi marta] – International Day of Women
Women are every bit as important as men, only in a different sort of way. They have their vulnerabilities, which we can cover and we have ours, which they can cover. When women work for the good of all, not just for themselves, then they can rise to true greatness.
Here are five great women in history, in no particular order:
Lillian Gish: Not only a massive contributor to her industry but a shining example of how a woman can have what she wants and yet remain feminine enough for men to love her too. It’s a grievous error for women not to take men along with them. It’s a grievous error to dismiss, as an ingenue, someone who was a very canny operator indeed. I would gladly be her slave.
Kate Bush: “I’m not a feminist . . . but I think I’m finally coming to terms with being a woman in this business.”
You can take men along with you and still be your own person, still be your own woman. This is the sort of woman I adore – strong, accessible for those who respect her, feminine, loving and with a sense of perspective [pretty too].
Georgia O’Keefe: “I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me…shapes and ideas so near to me…so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn’t occurred to me to put them down…”
The lady did it her way, initially with a man’s assistance but then on her own. The best male partners, in my book, are not frightened of the power of women but are dedicated to doing what they can to enhance their partner’s progress. And if she’s a good woman, it comes right back to that man a hundredfold – the love of a good woman is like nothing else on earth – it’s a nectar I’m addicted to forever.
Vera Lynn: In the very darkest hours, it was women such as “the forces’ sweetheart” who gave men the heart to continue, just as with Jeanne la Pucelle, Queen Bess and other women who led from the front. Men need to remember just how vital women have been in making life bearable.
Dianne Ravitch: A real person but also a generic name for one of so many carrying on the battle against PCism in our society. In Dianne’s case, it’s the education system and its destruction. Such women as these are so vital because the other half of humanity – men – can listen and respect such people. Whereas no real man would read anything by a feminazi, rational women like this need to be heeded and considered.
… and here are five more.
Bless each and every one of you because a world in which you don’t exist is not a world worth living in, in my book.
