In 2007, the Women’s Federation defined “leftover” women (sheng nu ) as unmarried women over the age of 27 and China’s Ministry of Education added the term to its official lexicon. Since then, the Women’s Federation Web site has run articles stigmatizing educated women who are still single.This is funny. Yes, the Chinese girls will seek out alpha men and become sluts, if given the opportunity. It is human nature. Feminists pretend that they are immune to it, but they are not.
Take this uplifting column from March 2011 that ran just after International Women’s Day:Pretty girls don’t need a lot of education to marry into a rich and powerful family, but girls with an average or ugly appearance will find it difficult. These kinds of girls hope to further their education in order to increase their competitiveness. The tragedy is, they don’t realize that as women age, they are worth less and less, so by the time they get their M.A. or Ph.D., they are already old, like yellowed pearls.After knocking some good sense into those misguided women who pursue a higher education, the column accuses educated, single women of sleeping around and having degenerate morals:Many highly educated “leftover women” are very progressive in their thinking and enjoy going to nightclubs to search for a one-night stand, or they become the mistress of a high official or rich man. It is only when they have lost their youth and are kicked out by the man, that they decide to look for a life partner. Therefore, most “leftover women” do not deserve our sympathy.
If the Chinese commies understood the threat, they would shut down the women's studies and other feminist influenced departments at their colleges, before it is too late. And they would never give women the vote.
The Chinese are just giving sensible advice. The Islamic countries take more drastic measures. Laura Bush writes:
On Tuesday afternoon, Malala Yousafzai was a 14-year-old girl riding home on a school bus. Now, after a masked gunman apparently boarded her bus, asked for her by name and shot her in the head and neck, she is fighting for her life. Malala was targeted by the Pakistani Taliban because for the past three years she has spoken out for the rights of all girls to become educated. After this despicable shooting, a Taliban spokesman said that his organization considers Malala’s crusade for education rights an “obscenity” and accused her of “propagating” Western culture. If she survives, the group promises to try again to kill her.CNN reports:
There were at least 185 documented attacks on schools and hospitals in Afghanistan last year, according to the United Nations, and the majority of those attacks were attributed to armed groups opposed to educating females.No, I do not agree with Islamic law, or with the Obama administration installing an Islamic govt in Afghanistan.
Update: The Spearhead blog adds:
I came across a hilarious article in the NY Times, in which a typical American feminist has a fit over material published by the Chinese Women’s Federation.A reader suggests that China read the manosphere blogs. That would be funny. The Chinese have they own idea of common sense. And feminists cannot stand to hear the truth.When holding out for a man, if you say he must be rich and brilliant, romantic and hardworking … this is just being willful. Does this kind of perfect man exist? Maybe he does exist, but why on earth would he want to marry you?I love that last line. Way to throw cold water on the Fifty Shades crowd.
The NY Times feminist’s commentary is the typical fare, so there’s no reason to repeat much of it here. To sum it up, she’s indignant. Big surprise…
