It’s fake.

It’s so obviously fake.

But as far as Photoshops go, it’s entertaining.

It amazes me how many men think women were spineless until…. what, the 80s?
Women have never been push-overs, I’ve never read that.

And how great is it that men think a pretty woman must be simple?
Really, if all it takes to fool you is a floral print dress… so much the better.

Woman of the future 1900

“This boasted civilization of ours falls to pieces when stripped of its veneering and reveals man’s innate evil propensities in all their hideousness….”

The original good intentions of feminism – to contribute and prevent war deaths.

And by contribute to the workforce, I mean improve everyone’s lives.
AKA the purpose of capitalism.

Half a century later.

“There are fewer unmarried men at large than there have been for years and years.”
“Women are more likely to marry men about three years their senior.”

Many people lie about these time periods but cannot provide a scrap of conclusive evidence that these people were the way they claim.

It was a fine thing if one was dumb and had no alternate prospect. Otherwise it’s a damn waste of a good brain (bad for everyone). The majority of their homeworking hours were taken up on things now supplanted by electronics – beating rugs or running errands, there are documentaries about the way it took up a whole day by hand, so we can never go back without a total grid down scenario.

Similarly, dumb men should be banned from most occupations. There’s no shame in manual labour.

I wonder, if it is as “easy” as some males say, why they don’t want to become house husbands?

If it is truly ‘doing nothing’, ‘woman’s work’ aka easy and they’re hamming it up? Where are the guys flocking to it, then? Aren’t men supposed to be the lazier sex? If you’re twice as capable, and could do it in half the time?

Methinks they might be kidding themselves…

Maybe I lost my pocketwatch and I'm secretly a Time Lady.

JK no one would marry them.
