A FRESH PERSPECTIVE …
We were recently turned on to Cathy Reisenwitz by a friend of ours …
Reisenwitz is editor at Young Voices and chief blogger at Sex and the State. She’s a free market feminist, as near as we can tell, and an expert on Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies – which she (correctly) views as free market antidotes to the perpetually metastasizing malignancy of the federal government.
And yes, “perpetually metastasizing malignancy” was us trying to show off …
“She’s very young, but seems to be getting some attention in the libertarian community,” our friend said.
Anyway, as much as we’d love to focus on Reisenwitz’s crypto-currency views we were most impressed by her observations on the subject of feminism.
“Feminist issues are nearly always more nuanced than the left and the right make them out to be,” Reisenwitz recently told Coin Telegraph. “A good example is the gender wage gap. The left claims it results mostly or only from gender-based discrimination. The data indicates that’s not actually the case, once you correct for choices like hours worked, education, experience, etc. The right claims the gap is purely the result of women’s choices. But that’s not really correct, either.”
So … what is the real source of the gender wage gap?
Well, without making any sort of sweeping indictment Reisenwitz points to several problems emanating from government, “like the fact that immigration restrictions and regulations make childcare more expensive than college tuition in most states, or the fact that at the lower end of the income scale, female-dominated professions are more likely to require a license.”
Also, the last time we checked the federal government was still paying women 87 percent as much as men.
“I want to demonstrate how the government itself is the war on women, and how the market can benefit everyone, women included,” she says.
Amen, sister …
Just make sure you publicize Libertarians connections w/ radical feminists (read Ultra Liberals)…Some of you who call yourselves Libertarians (TBG) $#!* all over yourselves when I call you Liberal-Tarians, based on FITS’ teachings.
Here, FITS is attaching you to Liberalism, far more solidly, than even I have.
Told you….I can see around the corner….
“ping” — another one tossed into the bad peanut bucket
You can’t even see the shit on the end of your nose.
So Boz: You agree w/ this feminist. Don’t you run a whore hourse…errr…strip club???…
And you are part of that filth at the beach, full of tattoos, pierce parlors, gambling junkets and motorcycle murderers…
I thought you, Cathy Reisenwitz and Hillary proclaim: It Takes a Village (as long as WE pay for it)….
Your Village is NASTY at MB..and you are one of the smut-kings…
Anyway: Cathy Reisenwitz would knee you in the nuts and bust your skull w/ a baseball bat if you got to within 5 ft. of her….Pervs are repulsive. And male pervs even more-so, to radical, man-hating feme-nazis…
For the record, TBG identifies as a small “l” libertarian, having let my Libertarian Party membership lapse about a decade ago. TBG is more a follower of David Bergland/Harry Browne’s teachings than those of FITS. No one is “attaching” TBG to liberalism as he had never heard of this chick until now, doesn’t think she is hot, and from the article, would not classify her as “libertarian”.
TBG, you demonstrate the folly of adherence to a “movement” as it were, instead of the one Truth.
I simply identify w/ my principles as a conservative. They don’t change and are not subject to the interpretation from party insiders or governed by directives of those selling books.
I have a God-centric philosophy, based on morality, character, truth, knowledge and experience. Though, He is ravaged for it, Jesus is an example of the freedom and free-thought, I’m speaking of.
All other belief systems pale to that. And you can witness many of the less-mature, less-developed and false (and failed) ideologies on this site.

Did Jesus ever get angry and use harsh words to describe the corrupt, unjust and deceitful…???
It may be a good Idea to have a little better understanding of what you speak, before judging others…
Sometimes the life as a cliché ensnares you, does it not???
Did Jesus ever get angry and use harsh words to describe the corrupt, unjust and deceitful…????
Did he? You sure as fuck do, and you do it to people who are not corrupt, unjust and deceitful as well, fucking moron.
It is really common, among the common…for the very un-Knowing, and contemptuous toward God to attempt to use Scripture to try to manipulate people respectful of Him.
You have no business pontificating upon that of which you are ignorant.
Because of who, and what you are…you allow your false and deceitful gods to control you…You eagerly define yourself by your sin, yet you hate me for doing the same.
There is no God.
So why do you liberals try to use Scripture, from God, to attack???
“Did Jesus ever get angry and use harsh words to describe the corrupt, unjust and deceitful…????”
I eagerly await your quotes of Jesus calling people “Dumb Fucks”-LMAO!
Are you a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ?
Chick is a liberal sheep in libertarian clothes Sic Willie…you’ve been warned.
She’s part of an leftist libertarian movement that ends up in the same place as all leftist thought.
Hmm…liberal sheep in libertarian clothes…I’d rather see her without any clothes personally ;)
That’s exactly why she is popular. Libertarians has a dearth of females, so an half attractive one that is sexually promiscuous is bound to get some attention because there are few female libertarians to start aside from the question of how many of them are sexually loose.
The poor saps that self identify as libertarians are mesmerized by her tits and not paying attention to the shit coming out of her mouth. They are just happy to have a set of tits to look at that claim to have some libertarian leanings.
*have a dearth
*so A half attractive
you get the point, typed quickly
You see her tits? I don’t.
You got pictures of her tits?
Let’s give her the benefit of the doubt and assume they are there someplace, like most of those hanging on her every word.
You don’t need to see her tits to bash one out
Hey, at my age I’m just glad I can still bash one out.
You see her tits? I don’t.
You got pictures of her tits?
This ain’t the FITS of yore, Homie.
Nice tits are an entity to themselves. The bearer’s politics are inconsequential.
You’re preaching to the choir my friend. I can appreciate boobies like every other red blooded man.
I just don’t let the boobies unleash the “lizard” part of my brain(HT to Euwe) and interfere with rational thinking.(anymore I should say)
Boobies are all good. Bring on the sweater meat. One lumps or two? Definitely two.
… except for the part where she’s a consistent libertarian. The fact that she takes issues like racism seriously does not indicate that she’s not solid on rights.
“… except for the part where she’s a consistent libertarian.”
Since you brought up the issue of racism, let’s just take one sample of her “thoughts” on the topic recently:
“On Friday I composed a few ill-conceived tweets concerning some major libertarian thinkers. I just want to apologize for my poor judgment in doing so. Making inflammatory accusations without thoroughly backing them up with concrete examples is just a terrible idea. I regret doing it and apologize to all I’ve offended.”
Yeah, let’s hope you’re wrong and she’s not “consistent”, otherwise she’d be consistently wrong.
Derp indeed. If you want to listen to ramblings of a mentally adolescent “thinker”, feel free. Or you can just spend 10 minutes using google. Aw shit, why do I bother?
Pick your poison, thinker or stinker:
Her pointing out, yet not citing, the fact that some libertarians have made racist statements in the past doesn’t make her any less a libertarian. Likely she is a more ardent libertarian than you.
LMAO! She spouted off with no proof, then back tracked because she realized she is an imbecile.
She deserves ZERO credibility. She’s a gnat intellectually.
Btw, there’s a rich irony in you coming to Fitsnews and whining about “trolling” when someone’s own words are brought out.
Would you like to examine more of her gems? Just say the word and we’ll get a real “troll fest” rolling.
Child care is daily. A few hours. And requires constant attention. College is a couple of hours a couple of times a week. According to DegreeRegistry.org , a general MBA can be obtained for as little as $6k and as high as $120k. If students would do a little research, they would find that it is not nearly as expensive to get a college degree
Woman’s love involves injustice and blindness against everything that she does not love… Woman is not yet capable of friendship: women are still cats and birds. Or at best cows…
woman! One-half of mankind is weak, typically sick, changeable, inconstant… she needs a religion of weakness that glorifies being weak, loving, and being humble as divine: or better, she makes the strong weak–she rules when she succeeds in overcoming the strong… Woman has always conspired with the types of decadence, the priests, against the “powerful”, the “strong”, the men–
A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy.
A real man wants two things: danger and play. Therefore he wants woman as the most dangerous plaything. Man shall be educated for war, and woman for the recreation of the warrior: all else is folly
Men have hitherto treated women like birds which have strayed down to them from the heights; as something more delicate, more fragile, more savage, stranger, sweeter, soulful – but as something which has to be caged up so that it shall not fly away
Everything in woman is a riddle, and everything in woman has one solution—that is pregnancy. For the woman, the man is a means: the end is always the child.
When a woman has scholarly inclinations there is usually something wrong with her sexuality.
Women are considered deep – why? Because one can never discover any bottom to them. Women are not even shallow.
Behind all their personal vanity, women themselves always have an impersonal contempt for woman.
Looking for women? Do not forget the whip!
Ah, women! They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.
I am sure you loved your mother!
Of course! What do you think I am??? A REPUBLICAN?
So what’s your opinion on Nietzsche’s comments?
I think he was condemning his contemporary culture, ridiculing the role model for women they prized so highly.
His genius was in the deconstruction of the absurd.
yes, I’m inclined to agree…but you haven’t given me YOUR opinion.
That was my opinion – rather than misogyny – it was a call for change.
I believe that, apart from the effects on consciousness by various steroids and hormones, the life of the mind is relatively equivalent.

Ok, you must have edited that previous reply. The “deconstruction” part of the comment wasn’t there when I responded, which is an obvious indicator.
I’m embarrassed you could confuse me with a Republican.
I never really thought that. I know you too well.
You really do yourself a disservice by participating in the Democrat/Republican paradigm.
I’ve been researching this problem for 10 years.. and I’ve come to the firm conclusion that the word with the single most shock value.. even beyond splooge gargling bottle squatter, is “Republican.”
You’ll rarely see me use the word “Democrat” – they remind me of sleeping sentries on watch in wartime.
You should consider “classical liberal”.
Seems cowardly… like “Progressive”
lol, why’s that? If anything, you’ll be hated by a much larger number of people.
Well, now.. that deserves a complete review.
“I sometimes dream that all over America, fat Republican pigs frothing at my posts become so angry and agitated they have a grand mal seizure at their terminal, gasping for breath.”
Your dream is my reality my friend. I was just called a “POS” by a Republican over at the “Memorialize that” post.
In fairness though, SC Blues and SC Blue Women hate me too…so you might not like that part where self identified “lefties” hate you too.
I find being a classical liberal creates this vortex of hatred that surrounds me…with a general loss of rationality by those swirling around in it as well.
It can be pretty damned entertaining.
Just a little extra Nietzsche often used “woman” to also stand for “truth.” He compared previous philosopher’s godawful writings and elementary “rational process” to awkward adolescents trying to woo “the truth.” His statements that were quoted was between what a woman is (in his contemporary culture), and what a woman should be. Equally, and in fact more so, he was arguing for what the “form” of “truth” should be, rather than the elementary and simpleminded “truths” that were accepted at the time (and to this day). Which isn’t to say he wasn’t also talking about women, he was just that damn clever. The truth should be something pursued with ardor and passion, and if the truth you discover isn’t beautiful, well maybe you just haven’t got what it takes.
if the truth you discover isn’t beautiful, well maybe you just haven’t got what it takes.
or maybe the truth is a fat girl who doesn’t sweat much.
The group I’ve been hanging with gets together at random intervals to compare death threats… we’ve destroyed religion boards… politics boards, book club boards… investment boards… abcnews.. hockey… countless backboards… we’ve been IP banned.. banned on identifiable handles, adjectives and phraseology… it’s rumored that we are all creations of the same mad General, infused with the personalities of his choosing, and for his entertainment and study. The artistic equivalent of the Great Masters – each word, punctuation mark, ellipsis coldly calculated for effect. He is solely responsible for the creation and continued existence of the Tea Party. Pure evil.
The only real thing I’ve learned is that if you get mad – you lose.
Iron my shirt, bitch.
You expect us to believe you wear a shirt?
I hope he wears one and I hope he never takes it off in front of me . . .
He’s not into the physical – he’s all about the charm.
Were you eavesdropping on your mom talking to the neighbors again?
She needs to use a degreasing conditioner.

Sorry that whole “Michelle Bachmann for POTUS” thing didn’t work out for you….
No, I was already in my new groove when she came on the scene.
