Where does it say there that she was a feminist or in any way involved with the feminist movement? She may have paved a path solely for selfish and even despicable reasons. The fact is that she paved a path, and whatever else she may have done does not nullify that fact.

Oh, lol! Nothing = god. Sorry, I don't know how exorcisms are worded. I get it now.

Still misplaced, I never said she was a feminist.

I wasn't directing anything at you Dom. I was putting my own words from another thread into MY mouth. I never knew all that much about her other than her nickname was "The Iron Lady". I might have wanted to look into it though, given certain famous curtains, and perfectly lethal shortswords have been made, in the past, with the same ferrous metal.

You can't compare the Falklands War to Iraq or Afghanistan.

The Falklands Islands are British land, populated by people who want them to remain under British control. Argentina's attack on them was a straight up invasion of our territory. Thatcher was completely right to reclaim them.

It would be like someone invading and occupying Hawaii. Of course America would fight to take it back.

I kind of have to agree with Dom on that; until that time, there were nearly no women on equal footing in high offices. Even the so called "sexual revolution" did little for women and often made women in general - at least in the US - the butt of the socio-political power joke.
When she began, I recall being kind of excited about having a female leader of a western world power. I also recall that the old fossils in DC were so aghast that many exclaimed with astonishment that 'wow, a woman might actually be able to do the same job as a man.'. Well, duh. What can I say; I love my country but it's power base has always been extraordinarily backward and extremely sexist.

However, I do have extremely mixed feelings on the subject. As a woman, I highly commend her for her unshakable show of strength but after she took power and did what she did... I condemn her for her inhumanity to her fellow human beings. I find her actions to be most unworthy of her even being referred to as a woman.

I try to look at the historical perspective. I'm sure a lot of people either supported or hated Napoleon's guts for the destruction he brought about and I find Thatcher's actions to be no more or less efficiently destructive. It will be a while before the general consensus takes her contribution and molds it into what it needs to make history say.
