552 Councils Not Enough for Swedish Femi-Socialists

I've written before about the Swedish feminist party that is under construction. Not all of them agree that men are animals, but most want global socialism and a six-hour working day. It's the same in Norway, where the government wants to shut down private companies that refuse to recruit at least 40 percent women to their boards by 2007. The same government is covering up rapes committed by Muslim immigrants. In 2005, Scandinavian "feminism" means yes to a Soviet-style economy, but no to talking about the ramifications of massive imports of the planet's most anti-female culture:

552 Councils Not Enough for Swedish Femi-Socialists

Lower taxes for single mothers and a new government quango for the “liberation” of women. These are the proposals of a Swedish government commission. Gudrun Schyman of the new Swedish political movement Feminist Initiative (Feministiskt initiative, Fi), however, is demanding more: a six-hour working day. The next general election in Sweden is scheduled for 17 September 2006. Last April 4, Gudrun Schyman presented the Feminist Initiative. Fi is a feminist network but is aiming to become a political party by next year so it can participate in the elections for the Riksdag, the Swedish Parliament. Opinion polls indicate that Fi may threaten the social-democrats of Prime Minister Göran Persson and could in this way indirectly lead to a conservative government. According to its manifesto Fi was established to “fight the systematic oppression of women and abolish the patriarchical power structures.” Apparently, while the rest of us thought Sweden was a feminist model society (45% of its parliamentarians are women, as are 11 of its 22 government ministers), the Swedish women were living in bondage. The Fi’s message appeals to many, the polls indicate. Hence the installation by the social-democratic government of a special commission on women’s rights. The commission concluded that Sweden needs a new official institution to promote women’s lib. Why not? It recently emerged that Sweden has 552 official institutions and councils, employing a total of 230,000 people. So another quango with 50 employees cannot be a problem. One wonders how Sweden can survive with such a “minimal” state. The commission also proposed that single parents should pay lower taxes than married couples. As most single parents are women this would benefit the fairer sex. However, within Fi itself there is some internal discord. Tiina Rosenberg, a professor in gender studies and a lesbian activist, who studied in East-Germany for three years at Karl Marx University, is threatening to leave the organisation if it does not speak out for homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals as well. According to Rosenberg, the feminist movement adopts too much of a heterosexual world view.

I would think the single parents are already paying lower taxes than married couple, simply because they make less money, correct? Do they actually want a lower tax rate? That would be blatantly unfair. It's ridiculous. If you say "no" to marriage, you give up the "perks" of marriage. These women are nuts.

Single parents already pay less taxes in the US. If you are a single head of household you get a larger family deduction.

Send European/western feminists to Iraq,Iran, and Saudi Arabia so they can see how an oppressed woman lives first hand.

Yes, go ahead and subsidize even more single parenthood. It's so good for children.....sarc WAY ON/

Oh, silly me. What's good for children (like two married, committed parents who love each other) doesn't count anymore. Only the adults and their needs are important......

I see the impacts of these decisions all the time. We have lost a large part of the last two generations of kids here in the US due to selfish, immature parents.

Bad idea. The worst.

Robert: No, most European men would NOT welcome any Islamization of Europe, only weak men with Fascist leanings such as you. Islam destroys all kinds of genuine creativity, and thus economic prosperity, in any culture it infects, and strips away your freedom. That goes for the men, too. If you are willing to give up freedom for yourself and your nation just because you are scared of Western women, then you are a pretty weak and pathetic creature.

I don't agree with Robert either. I think Western men by and large love the new Western women. They can screw around with whoever they want, whenever they want, with no strings attached. Feminism has hurt Western women much more than Western men. What do women get out the deal? Twice the work (home and outside) and no commitment. It's worked out really well for men.

I remember reading in a tourist guide about how hard communism was for women. They were expected to work, just like their male comrades, and then go home and do all the work.
