You should be careful who you say that around, being from the north you know as well as I do how hated that women is in our parts of the country.

I'm in Northern England and I don't think she did such a bad job. She modernised the country at a time when we were still stuck in the past. We were the third poorest country in the ECC when she came to power I think, she turned our economy around during the 80's and made us competitive on the world stage again.

Plus, regardless of everything else, this country should be eternally grateful to her for finally busting the balls of the trade unions.

Her deregulation of the banks also propped your modernized nation up for its massive economic recession that occurred not too long ago. The entire crux of her economic policy was that it was like a housewife's grocery list. Wow, that is worse than Romney saying a government is a corporation.

She was the British Ronald Reagan from what I can see.

Yeah it seems like it, not sure if her economic policies were as bad as Reagan's have proven to be.

RE: RIP Margaret Thatcher
Thatcher was a politician, so of course she lied, got people killed and wreaked havoc on an economy. That's what politicians do. Thatcher also entered the political arena at a time when it was almost exclusively a boy's club. While she wasn't the first woman to enter politics, she was the first woman to reach that level of notoriety. Like her or don't, that's the truth. Personally, I see her just as I see every other golden throated sociopath who seeks to foist his/her will on others. Because, that's what sociopaths do. And regardless the fact that she entered a dishonorable profession, she none the less did so against the odds. Ayn Rand also entered a male dominated world and reached a level of notoriety that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of male philosophers only dreamed of reaching. Again, like her or don't, she reached that position.

In the end, both of those women achieved goals that had not yet been achieved by women and any intellectually honest person, feminist or not, would recognize that fact. And recognition isn't synonymous with admiration or endorsement, so I really fail to see why there is such vehement denial, both here and in the feminist movement writ large of a simple fact.

Actually, I understand why the mainstream feminist movement doesn't recognize Thatcher or Rand. It's because (organized) feminism isn't a women's movement at all. Rather, it is a socialist political movement that, in my assessment, seeks only to reach a point where it can become a political party. This is evidenced not only by the fact that feminists dismiss Rand and Thatcher out of hand but also in the contrast between their purported interests and those it actually does endorse.

For instance, mainstream feminists agitate for very strict laws against marital abuse & the alleged objectification of women who work in the sex industry. However, those same women supported (and still do) Bill Clinton. Clinton is a known adulterer and womanizer who took a 23[sic] year old intern, shot his wad on her clothing and used her vagina to wet the tip of his cigar afterward.

Is there anything at all virtuous about treating an unpaid subordinate in such a way? Even if we accept that she consented to being Clinton's fuck doll, how is that any different than a woman who actively and voluntarily seeks out employment as an adult entertainer? After all, the latter are actually being compensated for their labor and, they can refuse service to any would be customer without fear of losing their jobs or, at least, without fear that they will be unable to find work elsewhere. Can we say that about Monica Lewinsky? Is it reasonable to assume that had she rejected Clinton's advances, she would have been able to continue on her career path unhindered?

It has been said that feminism is socialism with tits. That's a crude way to put it, I'll admit. But frankly, it's nowhere near as crude as using women's rights as a stepping stone for an immoral political agenda.

It's bad enough that there was ever a need for a women's movement to begin with. But to have so many people willing to blatantly deny the achievements of women, based on something so shallow and vain as politics, is proof positive that there is still such a need. Perhaps one day someone will begin a real women's movement.

The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names. - Chinese Proverb
