In Defense of ALL Women (Why are the feminist groups so silent when women are being abused?)

I’m always amazed at how groups that are supposed to be looking out for the interests of ALL continue to look away as the very ones that they are supposed to be protecting are abused and used right under their nose.

The link that I provided below is in reference to the treatment of the Saudi Arabian women athletes who CHOSE to participate in the XXX Olympiad and how the media in that country has ignored them and even proliferated as well as tolerated their abuse while nary an international appeal has been voiced by any of the so-called “women’s rights groups here in this country and very few abroad.

I wonder if all of the feminists groups like NOW (which I used to respect) and so many like them are going to figure out which petrol stations buy fuel from Saudi Arabia and other countries that discriminate against women (verifiable unlike the free speech issue regarding Chik-Fil-A) will boycott them.

Many of these groups will refuse to eat a sandwich or purchase a product at a business because of a perceived hurt (whether justified or unjustified) yet they will continue to purchase fuel to drive their cars to rallies that purport “women’s rights” from companies that get said fuel from countries like Saudi Arabia and many of the OPEC nations that routinely and verifiably continue to abuse, denigrate, humiliate, mutilate, torture, rape, and debase women on a sometime daily basis.

These “women’s rights” groups upon their inception were  supposed to look out for ALL women’s rights regardless of religious, political, or public affiliations but over the course of time just like many of the groups that purport to fight for the civil rights of ALL minorities only speak out or up for the women that agree with their political platform or sociopolitical/socioeconomic agenda which is why I no longer support them and their now false causes. 

Many of these groups support and love women like Sandra Fluke, Ellen DeGeneres (funny woman) who make the choices and lead lifestyles that they think should be the way every woman should espouse to be “free” like but if they were true to their original charter of being “pro-choice” they would not be hypocritical for not speaking out and up for the Lo Lo Jones’ (self admitted adult virgin because of her faith and belief in Jesus) and many other women who desire a more conservative  path to their lives as they make the “choice” to follow their own convictions and do not make choices that you agree with because they are still women and I thought that your whole reason for existing was to defend a woman’s right to choose her own destiny or outcome while breaking the “glass ceiling” that has been held over (and still is to some respect) over women’s heads throughout mankind’s existence. 

These groups pick and choose whether or not they will defend a woman if they are for abortion or for the LGBT lifestyle while allowing a woman who chooses to adopt values that are Christian or conservative in nature to be denigrated by foul-mouthed men and caliphate groups/sub-groups as well as their supportive nations while they who are supposed to be the “watchdog for ALL women” continually turn a blind eye to what is happening around them.

As a father of two beautiful daughters, as a husband to a loving and God-fearing wife, as a brother and respecter to all of the beautiful women that God has placed in my path (Christian, non-Christian, black, white, or other) as I walk through this life with Him, I am calling you out for your abject hypocrisy. 

You who lead these groups and the members who support this prejudicial and bigoted behavior I say to you that your actions are indefensible and if you are expected to change the behavior of men, our society, and the attitude of the  “male-dominated” society that you so hate you must change your ways for they are despicable and the honor that those who support you heap upon you is wholly unmerited.

I ask you as a man who respects women not because you ask or demand me to but because I respect a Holy God and He commands me to respect ALL of His creations and admonishes me to love ALL of them as my Lord and Savior Jesus christ loves me to do what is honest and true and stop the hypocrisy and once again rise up in the defense of ALL women (for when you do so this will benefit all mankind) who are the backbone of our society and the mother’s, sisters, wifes, and daughter’s that deserve the utmost respect and support in this man’s humble opinion.
