Many people still believe that feminism is only about total freedom of choice. That it’s only about valuing all vocations and making sure no one is abused.
No doubt, many women who call themselves feminist do sincerely believe these things, but the movement itself doesn’t even pretend to hide its real agenda. It is not about choice, and one only need listen to its proponents to hear its agenda:
Gloria Feldt, a leading feminist activist and former CEO of Planned Parenthood, was interviewed by the NY Times, clearly stating the truth about feminism. Why are feminists still defending what is being openly taught?
In case you missed it, here’s what Feldt is saying:'They make it harder for the rest of us to remedy the inequities that remain. We have to make young women aware of how their choices affect other women. It should be acceptable criticism to point out that, although everyone has the right to make their own life decisions, choosing to “opt out” reinforces stereotypes about women’s priorities that we’ve been working for decades to shatter, so just cut it out. And, the “individual choice” women have to become stay-at-home moms becomes precarious when they try to return to the workplace and find their earning power and options reduced. If we could see child-rearing as a necessary task and not an identity, and if we could collectively recognize that facilitating it benefits us all, we would go much further in guaranteeing women’s choices than we do when we are expected to uncritically celebrate every individual’s decisions.' From Where is the Female Steve Jobs
“Technically women have a choice but if you make the choice to be a stay at home mom you destroy everything feminism has worked to gain so we must criticize (and that should be acceptable) the women who choose to stay home with their children. Oh, and raising children is just a task that anyone can do.”
Perhaps you don’t realize how important it is that we understand its true colors and recognize its dangers to the family and ultimately to all of us.
I get really impatient with the defense of feminism and the accusations that anyone who disagrees with the feminist movement is simply 'uninformed', a 'gender traitor', or a 'misogynist' when there is such blatant evidence of the feminist agenda splattered across the NY Times, and everywhere else you care to look. The reality is, feminism is dangerous and degrading, not only to men, but to women as well. Feminism is actually misoginistic, and you only need to look at the evidence to see that this statement is correct.
There is no reason to get upset at those of us who oppose the true agenda behind feminism. It is precisely because I desire to defend women and children and families that I fight so vehemently against it. I know the typical replies: “Because of feminism women can vote and women can work and women can do such and such.”
Actually, feminism did not get women the right to vote, those were the suffragists who succeeded in winning women that right:
The suffrage movement was not a united movement. It was a coalition of different people and organizations that worked together for a few intense years around the common goal of votes for women. Approximately 95 percent of the participants in the movement were organized under the umbrella of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
And this is just one example of how the feminist movement skews reality in their favor in order to spread their propaganda.
If you are a rational, skeptical, and intelligent person, you should be able to figure out that feminism is NOT about equality for women. It has not hidden this fact from the public eye, but because they are as good as any religion in making people believe in their propaganda that people get caught up in the movement without even questioning it. And that is not very skeptical or rational.
Let me be clear that I do not deny that nothing good has ever come out of the feminist agenda, but the harm far outweighs the benefits.
If you are truly concerned with equal rights for ALL, and agree that no gender deserves to be held in higher esteem, or have more value placed on them, then you should not call yourself a feminist. The truth is, you are a humanist and should be proud to call yourself one. Calling yourself a feminist tells me that you are either ignorantly unaware of what feminism really is, or that you approve of, and advocate for, oppression and inequality based on gender. Either way, calling yourself a feminist does not reflect you in a positive light, except among your fellow feminists. Is that what you truly want?
