What it means to be an AMERICAN woman. Madonna ain’t gonna like it.

I’ve been listening to a bit of the news. Millions of women gathered to demonstrate their angst over the condition of women’s rights. Who can blame them? Obama promised to fix all of that. He was the man who would bring equal pay for equal work, pay for any and all desired medical procedures, and provide world peace.

The only thing that happened was the equal pay for equal work. Women on welfare get the same pay as men on welfare for doing exactly the same work.

The irony  in marching AFTER Obama has finished his term, AFTER the democrats lost both houses held at the beginning of his reign is stunning.

Now, women are protesting Trump? He has stated his intention of fixing as many of America’s problems as possible, and they protest the fact that he’s actually moving to do something? He’d been on the job for one day and they’re blaming him for everything they see as wrong in America?

I am ashamed of my American sisters. Here is the REAL state of womanhood in America.

I can get a free mammogram every year. I can get any medication I need at Walmart for $6 or less. I can eat anything I want and as much of it as I want and when I get fat, the US government provides me with a  FREE app to reduce weight and get in shape.(It’s called ‘Livestrong’. It’s very similar to Weightwatchers only it uses calories instead of points.)

I can live in any state in any town that I want to live in.

I can learn a language for free with Duolingo. Being bilingual will enhance any business opportunities I may seek.

If I’m hired for a full time job, my pay is the same as any other new hires. The pay discrepancy claimed by feminists is an artificial number that is created by the fact that women are FAR more likely to take low paying jobs like teachers or social workers. If compensation is compared directly between males and females in the same job in the same location  with equal education, equal performance rating and equal seniority, I challenge ANYBODY  to show me ONE SINGLE EXAMPLE of pay discrepancy based on gender.

I heard one woman marcher declare a discrepancy between medicare and medicaid coverage between male and female sexual dysfunction treatments. Her statements were blatantly false. Both are covered under certain plans if prescribed as medically necessary with the disadvantage going to males who must have some condition (like pulmonary hypertension) other than erectile dysfunction in order to qualify for medicare/medicaid benefits.

I can start a business. Did you know that 80% of the world’s 145 women billionaires are American. While it’s true that only about 18% of the total globally earned their wealth personally, it’s proof that if a woman wants to obtain tremendous wealth, she can do it.

I have never felt oppressed. In fact, the most pressure I feel to go against my preferences is the pressure from feminists and liberals who discount the work I do for my home and family as insignificant and imply that a successful woman must work outside the home.

I have always spent a fair share of my time in charitable work in my church. I have time to do this work because I’m a woman in a traditional family.

I can dress any way I want to. I can write anything I want to. I can voice my opinion or choose not to.

I have been a berry picker, a salon cleaner, a babysitter, a carhop, a factory worker, a waitress, nanny, home health worker, fabric store worker, home daycare operator, two multilevel marketing businesses, author, public speaker, columnist, and travel/ freelance writer. My current column, Americana,  is in one of the largest newspapers in the country.

I married when I was eighteen and then over the next 17 years, gave birth to 7 children. I CHOSE to stay home with them and create a happy home life for them and their dad. I had time to help in their schools and put on their parties. While it’s true that I am skilled at saving money and stretching a dollar to astonishing lengths, I chose my lifestyle.

I built a home for my family. Before I started, one contractor said that subcontractors wouldn’t work for a woman. That was absolutely untrue. I found the opposite. They were uniformly solicitous and willing to answer questions and explain what they were doing. They tended to underbid their contracts. I honestly feel that it was an advantage to be a woman because I wasn’t expected to know anything about the construction industry. I didn’t have to pretend. I had no trouble getting an owner-builder building permit, nor did I have to wait longer for inspections. Nobody cared that my name was Beth instead of Bob.

I did hire one dishonest company. They didn’t expect me to know any codes (for building a deck). When I stopped their  work, I was able to solve the issue with equal aplomb as any man. The authority of my check book was exactly the same. (I also had a dog that stayed with me every moment on the job site that would growl and her hackles would go up if ANY man other than my husband came close. I didn’t train her to do it, she did it naturally. As soon as the house was finished, she stopped behaving that way. Funny, eh?)

I went back to school and earned a bachelor’s degree in Literature, a subject I most enjoyed. I could do that because I was a woman and didn’t have responsibility to provide for my family. My husband would have preferred to major in something like literature himself, I think, but instead chose accounting so that he could provide well for our children and me.

I have visited sixteen countries, 48 states and two US territories. I can travel alone or with others. Nobody notices or cares.

My vote counts exactly the same as anybody else’s.

All of these opportunities are mine because as an AMERICAN woman, I can rely on my husband to provide for me while I pursue my own priorities. That is acceptable in our American value system.

Women are different than men. That’s not a discriminatory statement. I don’t want an equal number of urinals in the women’s restroom as are in the mens’. I don’t want to have a digital prostrate examination.

I love my life as an American woman. I love that I can concentrate on being a mom and a grandmother. I love the fact that I can write because I don’t need to make a living at it. I am not ashamed to have claimed my job to be a stay-at-home mom. To me ‘homemaker’ in the ’employment’ section of a form is at least as honorable as ‘CEO’.

In my opinion, American women have life better than any other class of people in the world, including American men.

I thank God that he made me an American woman.

Please share if you would like to defy the femi-nazis

    Beth, you ROCK! You’ve spoken for the MILLIONS of women who do NOT agree with Madonna, Ashley Judd, and their ilk.

    Very well stated, although I didn’t realize that you had it so much better than me…

      Sorry Jeff, I kept it quiet for as long as I could.
