Feminists reject the inherent beauty of womanhood, they deride pretty women as 'bimbos' while dismissing any wisdom that may emanate from these females simply because they happen to be nice to look at. The feminist claims to be a champion of women while they strive to cheapen women everywhere by encouraging promiscuity and devaluing the ideals of romantic, lasting love and the sanctity of marriage. They loathe the idea that women may actually WANT to be mothers, and they have a special vitriol filled place in their hard blackened hearts for stay at home moms. They have no respect for the traditional concept of family and as a result we've got legions of delusional people who praise abortion while minimizing the damage it does both to the never to be born baby and the would have been mother, we also now have generations of fatherless children who grow up to be bitter, broken people.They hate feminine women and masculine men, the only kind of man who is remotely acceptable to these people is the effete mewling acquiescent self hating beta male. Feminism is at fault for the epidemic of men in our society who would never think it his responsibility to hold a job and provide for his family or hold the role of father in the esteemed position that it deserves.
Nothing has been more damaging to young girls and women both here and around the world than feminism. As Pamela Geller correctly states in her recent American Thinker article, "Femi-not",
Feminism is a phony movement rooted in Marxist-Leninist ideology.Here's some more, from the same Geller piece linked above:
If feminists truly cared about the well being of females, they would speak out against the worst and most brutal source of oppression of women and girls which is islamic shariah law. The feminists' enslavement to leftism forbids that they acknowledge that fact, because it would not be "politically correct" to do so.
Feminists' mission by objective is not empowerment, but just the opposite: slavery. They want government-funded independence. Oxymoronic.
To say that feminism was one of the worst things to happen to women is being kind. I blame the left for the feminization of men. A woman recently wrote me that the world of male chivalry and respect for women is "gone forever," and said, "It is most upsetting as the mother of sons, you can't beat what's going on, and it's hard to watch your girl having to deal with these dudes today. The other girls have happily and nonchalantly declared themselves sex slaves. We have destroyed our young men!"
The demon seeds of the women's "liberation" movement are everywhere -- from the epidemic of single motherhood, the breakdown of the American family, the street vernacular of "bitches and hos," the emasculation of men to and the bone-crushing responsibility of being mother, father, breadwinner, chief cook, and bottle-washer. Having it all, indeed.
Caroline Glick has a great article, "The feminine deception", which explores this in great detail. Here's an excerpt:
read the whole thingSince the height of the feminist movement in the late 1960s, non-leftist women in the West and Israel have been hard-pressed to answer the question of whether or not we are feminists. Non-leftist women are opposed to the oppression of women. Certainly, we are no less opposed to the oppression of women than leftist women are.
But at its most basic level, the feminist label has never been solely or even predominantly about preventing and ending oppression or discrimination of women. It has been about advancing the Left's social and political agenda against Western societies. It has been about castigating societies where women enjoy legal rights and protections as "structurally" discriminatory against women in order to weaken the legal, moral and social foundations of those societies.
That is, rather than being about advancing the cause of women, to a large extent, the feminist movement has used the language of women's rights to advance a social and political agenda that has nothing to do with women. So to a large degree, the feminist movement itself is a deception.The deception at the heart of the feminist movement is nowhere more apparent than in the silence with which self-professed feminists and feminist movements ignore the inhumane treatment of women who live under Islamic law. If feminism weren't a hollow term, then prominent feminists would be the leaders of the anti-jihad movement.
Liberal men also falsely claim to care about women's issues, when the simple fact of the matter is that the leftist male has been instrumental in the destruction of the well being of women everywhere. Robin of Berkeley has an excellent article, "The Left's Sexual Terrorism", which clearly illustrates this truth. I highly recommend that you read the whole thing; here are some excerpts:
...The radicals are experts at controlling women. They've been dominating their own women for decades. To say that the Left is a safe harbor for women is to misunderstand their roots.
The women's movement arose partly because women were locked out of positions of authority in the antiwar and civil rights movements. Even more disturbingly, women were brainwashed to believe that their main duty was sexual. As civil rights activist Stokely Carmichael infamously phrased it, "The role of women in the movement is prone."
When SDS member Marilyn Webb dared to stand up at the National Mobilization Committee to advocate for women's rights, she was laughed off the stage with catcalls and cackles of "Take it off" and "Take her off the stage and f**k her." After her appearance, her life was threatened.
I honestly cringe every single time an otherwise sensible woman who is genuinely concerned for the welfare of women and girls describes herself as a "feminist" because feminism is truly anathema to any true regard for the female condition. For this reason, I suggest a new word to describe women who actually DO care about women's issues and are not afraid to embrace the virtues and power that come with womanhood: femininican - a combination of feminine and "I can", because feminism is all about "I can'ts" with their restrictive adherence to cultural marxism, perpetual insistence on victim status, and placing limitations on what girls and women may aspire to.My personal theory: Many women in the movement never recovered because they had their souls crushed. Radical women sold their bodies, and their souls, for the revolution.
Hippie chicks said yes to antiwar men who said no. Then there were the communist white girls who slept with black boys to entice them into Marxism. (Was Obama's mother encouraged to be one of them?)
The more extreme sects forced their women to do all sorts of heinous acts, both sexual and violent. When Charles Manson ordered his women to have sex with various men for free rent and other favors, the women obeyed. The Weather Underground leaders required members to have anonymous sex in order to destroy their humanity.
Bill Ayer's girlfriend, Weather Underground member Diana Oughton, transformed from an ebullient young woman to an emaciated zombie. She was killed when a nail bomb she was building exploded, demolishing a Greenwich Village townhouse.
Today's Leftists no longer walk the streets of Oakland in military garb, and they don't blow up ROTC buildings. Now they hold the highest positions in the land. But underneath their three-piece suits, they still resemble the radicals of old.
Like their forefathers, they not only fail to protect women, but they put women in harm's way. Case in point: the Left's support for radical Islam, a culture tantamount to slavery for women. And a new generation of leftist women participate in their own destruction.
Why wouldn't the Left align themselves with an ideology which shrouds women in a burqa and requires their total subservience to men? Isn't absolute obedience the Left's endgame?
The Left has no qualms about using guerrilla tactics that would be anathema to any moral person. They "Alinsky" opponents through marginalizing, ridiculing, and dehumanizing. But for women, the Left's arsenal sinks deeper and darker.
The radicals -- both men and women -- utilize a form of domestic terrorism which could have been designed by Lucifer, the fallen angel whom Alinsky idolized.
Their weapon? Sexual terrorism.
As a femininican I proudly proclaim that:
- I CAN embrace the biological gifts that I am endowed with, I CAN be beautiful and alluring, I CAN respect my body and embrace the possibility of motherhood within a loving and committed relationship to a respectful and honorable man.
- I CAN stand up and speak out against the oppression of my sisters around the world without fear of being 'politically incorrect' because I CAN recognize that abuse is always wrong regardless of who is perpetrating that abuse and that nobody who engages in abusive behavior should ever be spared from criticism or exempt from being brought to justice.
- I CAN raise my son to grow up to be honorable MAN and a responsible husband and father. My son will learn by watching his own father and by seeing how his own father is loved and respected by me.
- I CAN raise my daughter to value herself for the treasure that she is and to choose a mate wisely when she is older because she will have learned from her parents what it means to be in a traditional committed relationship where both man and woman respect each other and the unique gifts each has to offer the other.I CAN lead by example so that my daughter will understand through her witness the joy that comes with being a devoted wife and mother.
- I CAN aspire to achieve great things in my life for I am powerful by design and do not need to be 'empowered' by any false ideology which actually enslaves.
- I CAN respect and admire MEN who represent the traditional ideals of masculinity; men who are brave, strong, responsible and honorable, men who admire and respect feminine women and are unafraid of truly loving them.
