Today, women are being urged to take the day off from all work (including domestic) and spending. Yes, on a day which acknowledges women (national woman's day) a group of organizers wish all the ladies to stay home from work, knock off the dusting at home, leave the babies and go march in protest for all of the inequality that women in the United States face at the hands of men. There are a couple of things which concern me about the strike that make for some interesting thinking points. It seems that along with the strike, the organizers are asking women to stop spending money on their day off unless the business is owned by a woman. Now, from my point of view, if one were to do the psychological math, we find that (a) woman with a day off + (b) not shop = (c) massive women taking prozac in order to control shoppers detox. A second point of the protest would be that a couple of the organizers are convicted terrorists. I cannot say a whole lot about this point except that I would wonder why women would follow another woman who is proven to be somewhat mentally deranged ? A small link is provided for your reading pleasure. Terrorists Organizing Women's Day Off (it's not clickable so try to google it) I do have a couple of positive thoughts about it in case anyone believes me to be a bit biased. If equality is the issue, then it would be equal for men to do the same on some future date. Say, the opening day for a fishing event or deer season or even a local baseball event. Lastly, a positive note which involves the Obama administration. I think I will gender identify myself as a woman today and take the day off.
