TL;DR : They've always been garbage.

What can I say?

When you're right, you're right.

Universal suffrage was a mistake.

The 19th Amendment was dumber than the 18th, and should have been reversed as quickly.

The lead is buried in the article where the writer just whinges endlessly on how that wasn't "Real Feminism" anyway. I didn't finish reading it.

Seems to be implying that because it was propaganda then we shouldn't be disillusioned by the fakeness of it. Which sounds like something a propagandist would say when caught... >_>

It should also be noted that adding women to the primary workforce is the biggest single reason for wage stagnation over the past 30-50 years. When you effectively double the labor pool overnight but do not double the amount of jobs available, there are twice as many people competing for the same jobs, which directly means that the people doing the hiring can (and do) keep wages low because there will always still be people competing for those jobs. This is interestingly also why male dominated jobs like HVAC technician, electric lineman, oil field worker, etc are still fairly highly paid jobs. They still have the old pre-women in the workforce labor pool to choose from.

So not only did women not really want to join the workforce, quit shortly after when they do, tend to hate their lives when they are working and become depressed when they miss out on their prime relationship years because they were busy working, them being in the workforce is one of the biggest reasons why everyone else doesn't get paid as much. Thanks feminism.

They're also physically strenuous, dangerous, and, more importantly, lack air conditioning.

That's the why as to them being male dominated. Women detest discomfort as well as doing necessary work but that is unseen by peers and thus grants no boost to social status. One consequence of this is half the available labor pool than you'd get with more comfortable jobs that both men and women apply for, and because of that smaller labor pool, the pay is more competitive.

Which, in the case of HVAC is mildly humorous.

The idea of "Service guarantees citizenship" seems better every day

True republic, either citizenship by land ownership, or public/military service. People need skin in the game to be a voter

I believe originally in the USA only landowners had the right to vote. I can definitely see an upside to raising the barrier to voting. The fact that the Left is continually trying to lower the barrier suggests raising it is probably a good idea it and of itself.

But if a man quit his reserved factory job, he'd get drafted.
