Do you remember when the last Bush Administration was in charge, before Barack Obama, and back when Condoleeza Rice was the Secretary of State as opposed to Hillary Clinton? Yes, that now truly sounds like paradise and a very peaceful memory before Barry and Hillary took over with the Democrats, leading to mass destruction across the whole world. Who knew that the administration that went after seemingly non-existent WMD’s in Iraq, would be seen as saintly in comparison to the Obama administration?
This brings us to today’s interesting news. Who would have thought that Condoleeza Rice would be the voice of reason in these times of fake news and unruly college educated snowflakes, as well? What are we talking about?
In an interview with David Axelrod on CNN Saturday Night, Condoleeza Rice said the #MeToo movement is a good thing, hoped that it wouldn’t turn women into snowflakes. Boom! Condoleeza has miraculously become the voice of reason in the snowflake era, and on just about any topic.
The former Secretary of State Rice, 63, said, “Let’s not turn women into snowflakes. Let’s not infantilize women.”
Unfortunately, this is seemingly already happening, and sometime soon in the future, men will be harassed for simple things like touching a girl on the knee whilst flirting, or even be chastised for giving a woman a heartfelt compliment, as the #MeToo movement seems to be taking on a life of it’s own, with the after effects of too many women speaking out could just about class anything as falling under the #MeToo hashtag. It can happen if it gets out of control.
Perhaps that’s what Condoleeza Rice is getting at? In the interview, she stated that if people aren’t careful, it could end up backfiring on women. What does she mean backfiring? Well soon enough, men might start avoiding women all together amidst this snowflake culture of entitlement and speaking out on things that they may deem worthy of the #MeToo hashtag.
Condoleeza Rice said that men might start avoiding women in the workplace for fear of being accused of inappropriate behaviour.
“What I really don’t want to happen, I really don’t want to get to a place where men start to think “well, maybe it’s just better not to have women around”.
“It worries me. I think the movement to expose these circumstances is a good thing. Let’s clear the air about it. I do think we have to be a little bit careful.”
Condoleeza Rice went on to add, “I’ve certainly had people suggest that maybe we should just go out – and you know – and situations in which it was somebody more senior than I.”
“I’ve never faced an explicit quid pro quo. I’ve never had anyone do anything that I would consider assault. But I don’t know a woman alive who hasn’t had somebody say or do something that was inappropriate at best and aggressive at worst.”
Yes, it could become a fine line between interaction and being classed as being a victim or perpetrator of sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement, if it continues to escalate.
Recently, due to the intolerable escapades of Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood people, the #MeToo movement has caught on fire, bleeding into our everyday lives, with women feeling empowered enough to slap a #MeToo hashtag on just about anything.
French actress Catherine Deneuve and 99 other prominent women wrote a letter stating that the #MeToo is boarding on being too puritanical, and that it might lead us into censorship. Deneuve wrote:
“As women, we do not recognize ourselves in this feminism, which beyond denouncing the abuse of power takes on a hatred of men and of sexuality”.
There you have it! The #MeToo movement is pretty much creating a culture of women hating men and sex. Well, we are at least in the commencement stages of where it’s headed, and this all wreaks of the socialist construct of feminist ventures in spreading an agenda to divide men and women even further, beyond the factual and real instances of sexual abuse, quid quo pro sexual power games, and even that of sexual assault and rape.
Perhaps, the #MeToo hashtag should be used for the serious instances of such cases, and not also be used for frivolous instances of unreciprocated attraction and bad flirting?
You don’t see the #MeToo being used for the rape victims in Sweden and Germany as well, which is strange, given that it’s getting out of control over there.
The #MeToo movement has gone too far into the cultural mindset of women and young women. Anybody can say that just about anything is sexual harassment, when it could also just be innocent flirting, for example. When and where will the line be drawn, and who will draw it? Only time will tell.
Brainstain, over and out!
