I hate feminist, they demean the purpose of being a woman.
They demean being a mother,a wife,a daughter.
And they are stating out that they want to be like men, so they think that men are the superior sex.
Sorry I needed to rant.
Peachfuss…I understand…like all issues..there is never anything so simple as trying to compartmentalize things like Feminism…there was some good work that Betty Friedan did early on but that has drifted over the ensuing decades…
The original goal of the feminist movement was to increase women’s choices. The only real change feminists required from men was for them to get out of their way. Millions did. But soon it became evident that most women didn’t want to change. They were willing to go through the motions of becoming more than mere sex objects, but ultimately, the old and familiar was more comfortable than the uncharted territory of the feminist ideal. So women continued to seek the options provided by objectifying themselves as sex objects. Pop-feminists saw this, and realized it would be easier to employ hate and anger than reason and self-esteem to elevate women. Thus, they became the “Darth Vaders” of the women’s movement, relying on the “dark side” of human nature to dominate men.
While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.”
He addressed the man, “Can you describe your wife’s favourite flower?”
Tom leaned over, touched his wife’s arm gently and whispered, “It’s self-rising, isn’t it?”
The rest of the story gets rather ugly, so I’ll stop right here.
