Title IX, Title X, ERA, Equal Pay, PP & Abortion, Liberals political football !

BettyJean Downing

To hear the Democrats tell the story – you would never know that Title IX, Title X, pledges to support the ERA, Equal Pay, Planned Parenthood funding and Abortion were all started and/or passed under Republican administrations! That’s right they were 70’s advances signed into law that the dems takecredit for today!

When leftist women gather to talk to women about women’s rights – they rarely talk to all women about all women and clearly they are not about uniting women for the benefit of all women. Instead they take over women’s groups and radicalize them around issues that turn away the majority of women and turn women against each other using rhetoric that convinces women that we are enemies. These so called feminists insist women should have a choice- but it damned well better be the choice they have listed on their agenda- – you had better be Pro-abortion- pro gay rights- and a Democrat! What could be more anti feminist than that?

They have no intention of being ‘national women’s organizations’ speaking for all women. They rely instead on the divisive issues that tore the woman’s movement to shreds. The “lib” movement that both parties supported and would have secured equal rights for women in the 70’s , even included a woman’s right to choose abortion- was usurped and turned into a bra burning, man haters club that created a civil war between the sexes instead of equalizing the sexes. What could be more anti feminist than that?

Do a little homework and see what the radicals did to the ERA movement and how they keep the majority from coming together for all women by obfuscating the truth and playing games with semantics rather than finding common ground. See how they work for their own good at the cost of the good of all women. What could be more anti feminist than that?

See how they infiltrated the movement pitting woman against woman, against man and even against children. If you are invited to a women’s group – they will mask it with talk of ERA but all you will see and hear about is abortion, birth control pills and same sex marriage. Is that all women are about? What could be more anti feminist than that?

Can’t we have a group where women are seen as complete entities beyond their reproduction? They ask “if we can’t control our bodies- what can we control?” I respond- control your bodies, you have been since the 70’s- now shut the hell up and let the rest of us have speak our minds too without being ridiculed by the likes of you. You do not speak for 40% of America’s women and I sure in the hell want my rights- my choices, my voice which does not include being called a slut or a voting vagina!!

These radicals have us all painted as man hating, sexual wacko’s who care about nothing but same sex marriage and abortions! What could be more anti feminist than that? The very word feminist which should suggest appreciates or respects females instead connotes radical man haters. Thank you very much, now there is no word for those of us who simply want equality and reverence!

In case you think I am stretching the truth about the radical wacko’s hijacking the movement and tearing it apart-  read this major feminist’s work and see why so many women left the movement.

Shulamith Firestone “The Dialectic of Sex”

Published in 1970, her “The Dialectic of Sex” was a key feminist work that presaged today’s issues surrounding birth and science. The book influenced her feminist contemporaries as well as those who followed behind her.

“No one can understand how feminism has evolved without reading this radical, inflammatory, second-wave landmark,” said Naomi Wolf.

According to Amazon.com, “The book synthesizes the work of Freud, Marx, de Beauvoir and Engels to create a cogent argument for feminist revolution. Identifying women as a caste, she declares that they must seize the means of reproduction – for as long as women (and only women) are required to bear and rear children, they will be singled out as inferior.”

According to Wikipedia, “She advocated the use of cybernetics to carry out human reproduction in laboratories as well as the proliferation of contraception, abortion and state support for child-rearing; enabling [women] to escape their biologically determined positions in society. Firestone described pregnancy as ‘barbaric’… . Among the reproductive technologies she predicted were sex selection and in vitro fertilization.”   Firestone wrote in “The Dialectic of Sex”: “…[J]ust as to assure elimination of economic classes requires the revolt of the underclass (the proletariat) and, in a temporary dictatorship, their seizure of the means of production, so…the elimination of sexual classes requires the revolt of the underclass (women) and the seizure of control of reproduction… . The reproduction of the species by one sex for the benefit of both would be replaced by (at least the option of) artificial reproduction: … [T]he dependence of the child on the mother (and vice versa) would give way to a greatly shortened dependence on a small group of others in general… . The division of labour would be ended by the elimination of labour altogether (through cybernetics). The tyranny of the biological family would be broken.”

I personally don’t give a fig who you sleep with or what you do with your body- but I care how you present the rest of us. SHUT UP and stop dancing around in front of the white house dressed up as a vagina! That is a pitiful representation of women- and you do not represent me!

Men have been running this country for hundreds of years and have yet considered it necessary to dress up as PRICKS and dance around Washing DC to elicit support or votes!

Lowering ourselves with “I am more than a VAGINA” shirts or “Vagina’s Vote” umbrella’s does not bode well for womankind, it makes us look ridiculous and unintelligent. Alice Paul was Intelligent- as was Susan B. Anthony and many other suffragists who these Janey come lately’s have a lot to learn from.  Displaying a little more class and a lot less crass would go a long way to earning the respect needed to be taken seriously and to win elections!

The last time I attended the “We Are Woman” rally for women’s rights on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington – See more at: http://2passera.org/#sthash.dmIrZvaF.dpuf , I left disgusted and ashamed to be photographed or associated with the likes of some of these women who claim to represent America’s women. Further, Apparently we disagree on What women’s rights mean. I am looking to pass the ERA for Equal Rights. They DO NOT have it on their table. This was a DEMOCRATIC political rally ! These LIBERAL activists came dressed up as fallopian tubes and vagina’s shouting obscenities on the West Lawn, cursing men and Republicans while insisting there is a right wing war on women conveniently forget to mention where all the women’s rights and advances of the 70’s originally stemmed from.

Sandy Oestreich, Pres., National Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Alliance http://2passera.org/ and myself were the only two of a thousand or so who came to discuss rights of the whole woman. We had 5 minutes out of 5 hours to do so. http://2passera.org/

They forget to tell you – women from both sides of the aisle were once united. AND they forget to explain it was not the Democrats that passed these advances they brag about attaining in the 70’s. Instead they lead you to believe ( see pic left alluding to 73 as if Republicans were not the ones who passed these laws for women!) Instead they would have you believe- The republicans do and have always hated women and kept them “in their place” while the Democrats have always been the party of women. Yeah that was real obvious when they skewered Hillary in 2008 but that is another story. And they are about to uncurl Debbie W S’s hair next!

Before you believe the drivel from any party about the other party – do your research- and stop believing what the media tells you. Either be informed or stop voting. Ignorance is not bliss and the rest of us are paying for voter ignorance! For those of you who give a damned – read on!

The Republican Administration gave women Title IX, Title X, the ERA proposal, Equal Pay, Planned Parenthood funding and Abortion. That’s right — it was passed by a Republican administration!

“Why were we lambasting Romney about birth control and abortion during the 2012 election ?”

For Example: Former Senate candidate, Mrs. Lenore Romney, whose son has accepted the Republican Party’s presidential nomination 2012, was part of an effort to get a plank in the platform calling for legal abortion., as was Mrs. Eisenhower.

It was the Republicans’ “four more years” gathering for President Richard M. Nixon, Watergate was a break-in not linked yet to full-on corruption… It’s right there in the papers!… What’s also right there is a snapshot of women’s roles and rights under revision in society — we called it “women’s lib” back then — and the Republican Party’s response to the change underway.

“The Administration will . . . continue its strong efforts to open equal opportunities for women, recognizing clearly that women are often denied such opportunities today,” it begins, and then pledges to support passage of the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution, fight against sex discrimination and for equal pay, and appoint women to positions of greater power, including to the Supreme Court.

For the GOP in 1972, these were not just promises: The ferment and bra-burning of the 1960s were consolidated into real change in the ’70s. The executive and legislative branches already had written historical gains for women into policy and law, and the Supreme Court the next year would make equal job access and the right to abortion the law of the land.

By the time of the convention, the Nixon administration had passed and implemented Title IX, which expanded educational and athletic opportunities for millions of girls and women, and Title X, which made federal funding available for family planning for the first time. That funding, which House Republicans keep trying to strip away from Planned Parenthood, passed the Senate unanimously and the House with broad bipartisan support in 1970.

The Nixon White House required government contractors to use affirmative action to hire women; more women were in management in federal Washington than ever before.

Read the story from one who was there: A look back at 1972 GOP convention, and emergence of ‘women’s lib’

By Ann Gerhart: Forty years ago, I went to my first political convention as part of the official delegation from Pennsylvania.

The advances we need will not come from division, and don’t be fooled neither party wants us, the Majority united, but united we will accomplish all that we need. What we need is Equality under the Constitution. All else will come when we have full citizenship and most of all RESPECT!

IMAGINE what we can accomplish united into the majority we are instead of divided into 2 political minority camps?

The ERA = “EQUALITY OF RIGHTS UNDER THE LAW SHALL NOT BE DENIED OR ABRIDGED BY THE UNITED STATES OR BY ANY STATE ON ACCOUNT OF SEX.”

Radical women stole the words feminist and choice

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

Dear Sisters,

If you are familiar with me and my group- you know that I was all over this country fighting for Hillary because I believed she was the very best candidate from either side running for office in 2008. I was devastated that her party sold her out but not surprised, I was disgusted that the women of her party tolerated it and like battered wives voted her abusers into office as a reward for their deplorable behavior.

I believed in her and as an Independent I believe in no party for party sake but I put country and womankind first. I never hid that from anyone. I have been a FEMINIST from birth – and I will not accept that a FEMINIST walks lockstep with any ideology set up by radical women from either side. I know I am equal to every other human being and worthy of justice and respect and I have demanded it from birth and have fought to free myself and my sisters from the second class status our brothers  have forced us to submit to in and out of the religious and political sectors.

As the majority of the population, women have succumbed to the tyranny of either the church or political rule rather than rise above either and stand shoulder to shoulder and take our rightful place in society. Foolishly they have been brainwashed into believing there is an either or choice. I have never thought choosing between column A and column B was an adequate alternative for me Pro-Life or Pro-Choice. Pro-Choice is a misnomer, I used to say I was Pro-choice before I realized it meant I had no choice but abortion. The liberals who stole the word feminist along with the word choice have one hell of a nerve refusing ¾ of the world’s women use of language rightfully theirs. As an Independent, I know the truth, but I have coined a new phrase for the preferable option and it is “Freedom of Choice”.

The right cannot fathom relinquishing their “feminine” roles, aborting their children, becoming lesbians and hating a man which is what radical women have successfully turned the women’s movement into. Thanks to the voices in the Left wing crowd who will be sure to bring abortion, gay rights and man hating to the fore to make sure they drive away most women! If they really believed in God who gives free choice and will do the judging – they would not do these things that prevent most women from enjoying the saner conservative women.

The Left cannot tolerate conservative women who are happy to be stay at home moms, have large families, and let their husbands take the lead. In that crowd, there are also radicals who must call Liberal women baby killers and dykes and must protest outside abortion clinics and some even murder abortion doctors setting up a fair shriek from the other side in their own defense.  What they don’t realize is that most women are not radical! Most women have children, husbands and professional lives these days and do it all without the benefit of fair pay, equal rights, under tolerable conditions and with the proper respect.

TMU WOMEN- have busted our buts for nearly 4 years trying to bring together those women! Women who refuse to be pigeon holed either left or right. WOMEN who are sick and tired of being labeled and boxed and forced to chose! WOMEN who are tired of watching their sister being raped in Egypt while the Radical Left and Right do nothing and the rest of us think you have NO VOICE!

Do you realize that you have a group that will speak for independent you? THE MAORITY UNITED -WOMEN, will speak for you! TMU will never ask if you are Pro anything regarding you reproduction- we don’t care how you vote either – that’s why they have curtains on voting booths!

What we do care about is your rights as a woman or child and we care that you get justice as a citizen of the US.

I have been mercilessly attacked by the radicals from both sides — I’m still standing! I will bet you there are more of us then there are of them!

If you do nothing- nothing will be done! I can’t do this alone — will you sit there and just talk and just write and just fight among yourselves and just point fingers back and forth? 

We all know the problem.  I have thought of a solution! Leave the problem, the troublemakers, to their own devices while the majority unites and does the real work.

 We can do this! Spread the word– I am not quitting– how about you?

Are you going to continue to let NOW speak for you, if they don’t? Will you let Family Matters, Concerned Women for America, speak for you if they don’t?

TMU- Freedom of Choice: Fighting for human rights for all women.

Terry O’Neil, Jehmu Green: Molls of the 21st Century

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

N.O.W. and Women’s Media Center’s Democratic molls beware, the real feminists are coming!

I had such good hopes for N.O.W. when we voted in the new president Terry O’Neil but it is obvious, NOW National and many but not all of the state organizations are nothing more than Democratic Party Molls. Most of the so-called women’s groups that don’t label themselves conservative are in fact not the non partisan groups they purport to be – but are far left partisans who make it very clear only far left need apply! Moreover, they make it very clear they vote against any woman who is not FAR LEFT. Meg Whitman for example is a female candidate who clearly is Pro-choice but is labeled a whore by CA-NOW president because – it appears- she is a republican and it also appears will not be fired for saying so even though she said it after Terry O’Neil warned the next person to say it should be fired!

 Terry O’Neil

October 13, NOW calls on Brown, to fire any member of his staff who uses this word or any hate speech against women. For Immediate Release Contact: Mai Shiozaki w. 202-628-8669, ext. 116, c. 202-595-4473 Note* original does not contain the words from this day forward which by the way is ridiculous. Why from this day forward? If the N word was used would anyone say from this day forward?

Megan Carpentier | October 14, 2010, 1:45PM

Last week, the National Organization for Women and the PAC of the California NOW chapter took heat for their endorsement of state Attorney General Jerry Brown (D) over Meg Whitman (R) in the gubernatorial race in the wake of comments by a Brown aide that Whitman was a “whore.” At the time, national NOW President Terry O’Neill said that anyone who “from here on” calls a woman a “whore” should be fired.

She might want to have a talk with California NOW President Parry Bellasalma, who today told TPM in response to a question that “Meg Whitman could be described as ‘a political whore.’ Yes, that’s an accurate statement.”

On NOW’s page they never changed the date to reflect the update – they updated the last paragraph and made a note saying so but never dated the change.At best this is an omission at worst it was an intended cover-up. Why from this day forward? If the N word was used would anyone say from this day forward? http://www.now.org/press/10-10/10-13.html

NOW: October 13, 2010

Last night at the California gubernatorial debate, Jerry Brown apologized for a member of his campaign staff suggesting Meg Whitman, his opponent in the race, be called a “whore.” This overdue apology was a necessary step; however, it was accompanied by an assertion that these sorts of comments are part and parcel of what happens inside political campaigns. If so, that needs to change.

While our California chapter’s Political Action Committee voted to endorse Brown on the basis of his support for women’s rights, the National Organization for Women clearly and unequivocally condemns calling Meg Whitman, or any woman, a whore. This term is hate speech that carries with it negative connotations associated with women, and it has no place in contemporary society.

NOW calls on Brown, from this point forward, to fire any member of his staff who uses this word or any hate speech against women.
                                                                            ###

Update: NOW clarified this statement with the addition of “from this point forward” to the final paragraph.

Patty Bellasalma, President CA-NOW

“The abuse of employees, whether in the workplace or in the home, is not acceptable,” Bellasalma said. “It’s a pattern that’s developing about how Meg Whitman treats people who she believes are beneath her. It’s a cynical game of the Republican Party, putting up candidates who are anti-women to garner women votes superficially.”
Why is she calling Meg Whitman anti-woman, it’s because she’s pro-life right? No, she’s pro-choice, but she is a Republican!

NOW is shrinking steadily because it caters to the Democratic Party and a small group of women to the elimination of all others. NOW had become a democrat extreme left- extremely Liberal – abortion only organizations hell bent on lesbian rights rather than all women’s rights who will turn on any woman in a minute if she does not  agree on their narrow platform.

A NATIONAL organization FOR women should encompass all women, not represent the minority to the omission of the vast majority of women. NOW continues to shrink and yet they continue to define feminism based on the minority members they have come to represent co-opting the term as their own, which justifiably belongs to every women. 

ALL women includes the smaller percentage of liberal women whose choice includes gay rights and abortion but not to the exclusion of the vast majority of women made up of independent women who do not necessarily agree these are women’s main issues and conservative women who absolutely do not want to have those two issues come to identify all women.

Jehmu Green  

And did you see Jehmu Green of Women’s Media Center starting up a new website Name it Change it! Good job. So now instead of just attacking conservative women – she will just be running straight out for the Democrats. She was on Bulls and Bears this morning lauding Obama for finally telling the truth about the shovels! It appears if a Democratic POTUS comes clean at some point we forget all the lies he told before! I’ll bet you dollars to donuts she doesn’t apply that to BUSH!

Thank you Jehmu if you help the media  stop attacking women we will all be forever grateful  but don’t think for one minute that will win the Dems any of our votes back . Nice try but we have your number. Clearly you are a Moll for the Dems out there trying to win back the women’s vote! Too late! As I explained above you do not represent the majority of women! You represent the Democrats, you represent the Liberals.

What you forgot is that the majority out here is mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore! I’ve named it – now you change it! You Democrat molls better get with the program- the majority is uniting and you are going to lose your grip on the term feminist. The real feminists are coming!

I am personally familiar with 3 state organizations MD-NOW, MI-NOW and NYS-NOW who do not fit the description above.  They support vigorous legislative programs, grassroots efforts, and have been there for anyone who has reached out for help.

Marcia Pappas
I wholeheartedly support the work of Marcia Pappas of NYS-NOW who is devoted to equality for all women and children and who supports their issues, specifically in areas of divorce, domestic violence and court bias against women. Marcia works tirelessly never asking where a women stands on various issues or what her party affiliation might be.  She has been called “the most visible activist in New York State and that is because wherever there is a women or child in need, Marcia has brought a rally there for her – in rain – sleet or snow!

Linda Mahoney
I wholeheartedly support the work of Linda Mahoney of MD-NOW who is devoted action to bring about equality for all women. NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society.

Renee Beeker
I wholeheartedly support the work of Renee Beeker of MI-NOW is the Creator and Director of the National Family Court Watch Project. An advocate for reform of the judicial system since 1996, Renee is a respected contributing member to many grassroots and professional organizations including Stop Family Violence, a national grassroots organization with a mission to organize and amplify our nation’s collective voice against domestic violence.

National Organization for Women (NOW)

There are many good people like Marcia, Linda and Renee. We need to break the Democratic stranglehold on these organizations and we can and should. We the majority need to unite and show them what a national women’s organization looks like, sounds like and acts like!

Women’s Media Center

As for Women’s Media Center (WMC), it’s been a joke up to now as evidenced by its failure to come down hard on the media and the male candidates for sexism and misogyny hurled at every woman from Hillary to the present group of women that threaten to unseat the DNC preferred choices. This group will eat their own young to get to the top—they have not the confidence to make it in their own without the party and now they are trying to patronize us and fool us into believing they are on our side. They are not!

The Majority United

The Majority United  (TMU)stands proud with ALL women. We are neither left or right nor do we lobby for or against choice or gay rights, there are specific groups that specialize on those issues, instead support all women. We are so proud of those who have the courage of their convictions and stand up for what they believe in just as the original Suffragists did. Remember these women from both sides of the aisle are teaching us weekly that we can strongly disagree on some issues, yet stand together for the equal rights of women. Women have more in common than not and no one agrees with anyone 100% of the time but we can all agree that united and mobilized  we can achieve what needs to be done . TMU has three main goals and we support women who support those goals for ALL women, children and support The Constitution and the United States of America!

Are You Pro life, Or Do You Just Want To Control Women?

When I was young I heard feminists say that “pro-lifers” were more concerned with controlling women than preventing abortion.

That line of reasoning didn’t make sense to me at the time. Now it does. I don’t think that everyone who is prolife is disingenuous. But some are.

The Food and Drug Administration recently approved new emergency contraception known as ella, aka “Plan C.” Unlike the emergency contraception currently available, Plan C can be taken up to five days after unprotected sex, and is 98% effective when properly used. The drug stops fertilization by preventing eggs from being released.

Some pro-lifers protest that Plan C brings us one step closer to “over the counter abortions” – though medical studies prove otherwise.

These same folks say stem cell research equals abortion. Yet they don’t worry that fertilized eggs are thrown in the garbage if they aren’t used for research. Garbage isn’t constantly publicized while breakthrough science is.

Pro-lifer, George W. Bush, didn’t seem to have a problem sending young men to die in Iraq and Afghanistan. But as one cartoonist put it, “No stem cells were hurt.”

I once heard Christopher Reeve pose the following question: if you were in a research lab with a two-year-old and a fire broke out, would you save the child, or would you leave her to die so that you could save thousands of stem cells? I suspect most of us would save the actual child.

Utah Senator, Orin Hatch, says it’s fine to use fertilized eggs for research. But destroying eggs implanted in a woman’s womb equals murder. In one case a woman’s body is controlled. In the other, it isn’t.

Pro-lifer, Pat Robertson opposes a woman’s right to choose abortion in America. But he supports forced abortions in China. Once again controlling women is the only common denominator.

Pro-lifers don’t seem to be too concerned with making sure poor women get prenatal care, or that their babies have food once they are born.

Pro life?  Sometimes it’s all about controlling women.
