HERE, MEN WANT TO ENSLAVE WOMEN BY KEEPING THEM 'BAREFOOT AND
PREGNANT' IN THE HOME, WITH SERIAL PREGNANCIES, AND SINCE WE HAVE
'NUCLEAR FAMILIES' THERE ARE NO OTHER WOMEN AROUND TO HELP - THIS IS
BAD FOR THE WOMAN AND THE CHILDREN, BUT THIS IS THE WAY OF PATRIARCHY
TO ISOLATE WOMEN FROM EACH OTHER AND KEEP THEM DEPENDENT ON
MALES........NOW EVENTUALLY WE ARE GOING TO HAVE MATRIARCHY AND
EXTENDED FAMILIES RUN BY WOMEN AGAIN, ONCE WE GET MATRIARHCY IN FULL
BLOOM, BUT RIGHT NOW, AS A TRANSITION, WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT
WOMEN CANNOT JUST STAY HOME TAKING CARE OF BABIES, CLEANING HOUSE, AND
BEING SLAVES OF ONE MAN - IT IS TOO DEPRESSING, DREARY AND DIFFICULT.
WOMEN, LIKE ALL HUMANS, NEED RELEASE AND STIMULATION, AND THIS HAS TO
BE GOTTEN OUTSIDE THE HOME. EVEN A DOG SHOULD GET A WALK OUTSIDE ONCE
A DAY, FOR GOD'S SAKE, WHY SHOULD WOMEN JUST STAY HOME? IF MEN STAYED
HOME ALL THE TIME THEY WOULD GET STIR CRAZY, AND ALTHOUGH WOMEN ARE
STRONGER THAN THAT, THEY HAVE NORMAL HUMAN NEEDS AS WELL, AND ONE OF
THEM, IS TO GET OUT......
