I dug this post up from the past for my friend QD
In her column, The Feminine mistake, Noel Stranger wants to know when did the feminist movement become ridiculous, anti-male, anti-family and pro-sex? She goes on to ask; “When did it stop being a noble fight to be heard and start becoming a contest in vulgarity? When did feminists start claiming to represent all women but stop listening to most of them?”
That’s a great question to ask. It certainly did not happen overnight. It took decades of ultra liberalism to get the face of the feminist movement we have today. Make no mistake about it, there is nothing feminine about a feminist. The feminist movement today is nothing more than a launch pad to get wacky liberalism into mainstream society. I do believe however that the feminist movement started with all good intentions to improve conditions for women in America.
Take for example equal pay for equal work. That should be a no-brainer as far as the type of work goes. If the job is simple manual labor or entry level position and if male or female can do the job, work hard at it and climb the ladder of success, they should make the same amount of money for their efforts without sex discrimination.
But, there is a basic lesson of economics to understand when you hear feminist cry and whine today about how women make 75 cents for every dollar a man makes for the same work.
It’s so easy to shoot down this argument with simple logic; if businesses could save 25 cents on every dollar of labor they spend by hiring only women, why would they ever hire a man? Companies could use only a female workforce and pocket an extra 25% of profits by simply not hiring men. Like, duh! If I remember my economics 101 class in high school correctly, businesses exist to make profits. If they don’t make profits they cease to exist.
Stay at Home Moms?
Another issue feminist make a mockery of is the woman who decides to stay home and raise children. This is the ultimate insult to the ‘intelligent’ feminist. Feminist place a much higher value on the individual woman succeeding in the workplace or in a political position than a woman who decides to spend more time with her family and be a mom.
Judge Robert Bork said, "It should be a source of great pride to bear the next generation and to train that generation's minds and morals. That is certainly a greater accomplishment than churning out tracts raging at men and families. It is fine that women are taking up careers, but the price for that need not be the demoralization of women who do not choose that path."
If a woman chooses to place her family over her career, she should be admired as much, if not greater, than any high level business-woman or woman holding a political seat.
What about Men bashing?
You can thank feminists for the way men and women relate to each other now. Take for example the simple act of being a gentleman. I was taught to hold the door for a lady, open the car door for a lady, and compliment a woman on her appearance. Today you run the risk of being chauvinistic with any one of those acts. In truth, simple things like holding a door or opening a car door for a woman is showing respect for her. Not demeaning her.
But I think the times, they are a changing. I think most women see radical feminist for who they really are; a bunch of left wing agenda pushing radicals who would love for more women to kill more babies In Utero.
