Ambita Persaud, 23, a native of Guyana, immigrated to Canada when she was 18 years old.
When I enrolled in some Grade 12 courses, I was surprised by the amount of feminist indoctrination. I was told constantly that ordinary males were part of “a patriarchy system” responsible for the oppression of women.
I remember many housewives in Guyana who, despite being labelled as oppressed by the feminists, were quite content with life. I personally know housewives who remained married to their husbands for over 50 years. A majority of them lived a rural, farming lifestyle in Guyana.
In contrast, Canadian-born and educated women are barely feminine. I feel as if I am dealing
with men in female bodies, because some of the women are aggressive,
drink like men and conduct themselves aggressively.
Most females obey
corporate authority and believe they have more power. Instead, I see women barely 30 years earning over 40K a year, preoccupied with looks and possessions, spending money in order to
feel good about themselves. They will never feel completely good,
because they do not have the love from a committed man. A man who would
stick with them. Many are also falling into the single-mother trap.
I became acquainted with female friends who were very welcoming. However, whenever I spoke about marriage, some of would mock me saying marriage was a burden. Their remarks were not aggressive, per se, but I wanted friends and I believed that in due course, I would have been accepted for my pro-family views.
Instead, my female friends cajoled me into their lifestyle of constant partying, sexting, drinking heavily and having many sexual partners. They called it an “independent lifestyle.” Most of my female friends were working well-paid jobs, so they could afford to spend money on their recreational tendencies.
On the other hand, I was stuck with one part-time job. My polite and shy tone, along with my Caribbean accent were impediments.Female immigrants feel they must embrace feminist values in order to be accepted into Canadian society. Many of the hiring managers are feminists.
Fortunately, I got through with working part-time in an Indian retail store. No job agency helped me get that job. The job counselors already claimed I needed more Canadian experience in order to get Canadian experience.
FEMINIST LIFESTYLE = PROMISCUITY & LESBIANISM
On some occasions, I saw my female friends kissing each other and doing sexual moves which were unseen in Guyana. The laws of Guyana prohibit homosexual behavior based on religious and moral grounds. In Canadian school, I was taught that homosexuals are persecuted by heterosexuals, and that we should accept homosexuality.
The teacher did not say that we should tolerate homosexuals for who they are, but to accept the homosexuality as normal. I knew it was immoral to be kissing a woman. It was not homophobic in Guyana to say that same-sex relations are wrong, but of recent, a foreign educated activist is pushing for legislation to legalize homosexuality in Guyana.
It took me months of reading independent news sources to figure out that feminism is not good for a woman. Feminism promotes hatred of men while emasculating them in the process. Even the Caribbean is not immune from the tentacles of radical feminism. The Guyanese feminist activists, some of whom are Women’s Studies graduates from American universities and colleges, write articles in Caribbean newspapers.
In addition, the feminists get funded to start organizations promoting feminism in Guyana. While most of these feminists advocate equality and being free from this mysterious patriarch oppression, domestic violence rates have not been reduced, but are increasing in Guyana and the Caribbean. This is because new feminists movement have been provoking men and confronting them, which in turn causes some disastrous effects for both parties.
The doctrines of feminism tried to mold me from being a quiet and respectful woman into a deviant woman with no respect for my dignity. I still had that chance to remove all of the gender-extremist ideologies of modern feminism.
I am in a relationship with a 27 year old Guyanese male, and our Guyanese values are the reason why we have a conflict-free relationship.
The Guyanese men are manly, in control
and don’t have any fear of anything. Women in Guyana wouldn’t call the
cops if men are staring at them or making any remarks. Most of the women
know how to behave and control men without the feminist ideologies.
In Guyana, men take pride in earning
money. It dates back to the old time when men were providing for their
families. Nowadays, it seems that with every job there is, men are
competing with women. It brings more resentment to men for some reason
which is wired to their brain. I think there is some pride with men
being a breadwinner and it is not about control or oppressing women.
Feminism would have destroyed my dignity and morality. I doubt that my boyfriend would have stayed with me if I was confrontational and promiscuous. I do not support feminism as Canada already has laws and regulations which prevent discrimination and deal with domestic issues. I do not need a feminist to dictate how I should live my life.
Note from Ambita:
There is an advertisement on Youtube which depicts two basketball players. One is trying to jump for the hoop, and the other was trying to block the person, but his face ended up by the other’s crotch. He said after a pause in the commercial, “What is wrong with that?”
It was an advertisement for Boost Mobile. The propaganda phrase keeps repeating, “What is wrong with being gay?” while people who think it is wrong or criticizes homosexuality is compared to lynch mobs in Africa. Again, the homosexual movement is demonizing people not engaging in their dysfunction.
