9. The good manufacturing jobs didn't disappear because of women. They disappeared
Because of outsourcing, free trade agreements and the gaming of the system by the wealthy, to screw everyone under them out of their fair share of pay.
I know of women who would actually love the choice to be stay at home Moms. They can't because very few households now can live on a single paycheck.
But the right wing is discovering "blame everything on women" sells. And it is an idea being adopted by some on the left as well.
I have a good imagination (maybe too good) and if I were writing a novel given the past and present circumstances, I would end the novel with bands of men roaming our nation, raping and brutally killing the women cowering in fear, just like what some war torn regions of Africa have endured.
Oh yeah and then taking whatever material goods the women had been able to put away for herself and her children.
It's kind of hard for me to envision increasing misogyny turning out to have a happy ending.
Maybe if I used the POV of the male. A guy who was a Marine in Nam told me a story years ago how his entire platoon raped and then stabbed a sniper woman they caught. He smiled as he said, "We turned that b*tch into hamburger!"
Maybe this story could have a happy ending if I just adopted the male POV.
