Can you imagine not being able to vote because you’re a woman?
How horrible that must be to feel like your political voice is irrelevant. You’re interested in politics, you have all these ideas and opinions on improving the system, but women don’t vote.
And, sadly, you’re a women.
What about owning a house? Did you know that women weren’t able to own property in their name in the United States until 1821 (and only in Maine)?
The change soon moved to other states, but the fact is that women owning property is a relatively new phenomenon.
Then there’s the issue of marital rape, divorce, child custody, and freedom to work. All relatively new areas of equality for women.
Oh, and how would you react if you couldn’t go to school?
Education is an important part of our modern society, but since you’re a woman, you don’t get one?
What kind of idiocy is that?
More importantly, where’s your liberty?
See, the early feminist movement was about liberty, equality under the law, respect, and empowerment.
They saw the oppression women were going through.
- Forced marriages are a sickening blight that needed to be exterminated.
- Women should be able to vote. Period.
- Women should be able to divorce their spouse.
The early feminist movement was a movement based on liberty. They were based on the idea that if men are free to do “A,” women should be free to do it too.
It’s individual freedom, clear and simple.
Sadly, that’s changed with the modern feminist movement. The modern feminist movement isn’t for individual freedom or equality under law.
Where the early feminists were based on empowerment, the modern feminists are based on victimization and excessive five year old whining.
A chasm separates these two seemingly similar movements.
One movement succeeded in bringing freedom to a group of people. The other will slowly fade out. A failed movement, based on a shaky foundation.
The modern feminist movement is destined to die. They won’t make a difference. They’ll just fade into obscurity.
“Why?” You ask.
Feminism is built on several principles that don’t produce a thriving movement. They support things that don’t bring people in. Their movement is built on sand.
Here’s a few reasons why…
Feminism is Built on Hate
If you’re subscribed to my newsletter (The Informers), you’ve heard about misandry. You also had the unfortunate experience of reading a feminist article about how misandry is a positive belief.
That’s right. A feminist argued that misandry (the hatred of men) is a positive element that not only benefits women, but men as well.
…She went full retard.
Despite the off the chart level of idiocy, her article was a prime example of the hate that’s been built into the movement.
- Women who disagree with them
- The “patriarchy”
- Cis-normative white people
- Privileged people
Instead of reaching out to people, building relationships and spreading their message, they’ve become glorified trolls. If you speak up against them, they attack you with an unceasing volley of cuss words, cries of sexism, and words that no one understands…
It’s clear that feminists understand hate more than they do tolerance.
They’re not for People
Any person that advocates the betterment of one group at the expense of another is not for freedom.
Take the Hobby Lobby case as an example of this.
Hobby Lobby refusing to provide two forms of contraceptives was oppression in the eyes of feminists. It didn’t matter if women could still obtain those contraceptives somewhere else. It didn’t matter that the owners have a right to do with their property what they want.
And, it certainly didn’t matter that forcing a company to provide a good or service is oppressive.
All they wanted was their birth control. They were owed this good. Heck, they had a right to it.
Screw business owners.
“Who cares what they need or can provide, I just want my birth control.”
Feminism is for women (who agree with them). Anyone else gets pushed to the back of the line. Not freedom, or equality.
Business owners get a back seat.
Men get a back seat.
Women who disagree with them get a back seat.
They force people (who they hate) to supply them with what they want.
They’re for rights, as long as those rights benefit them.
…shall I go on?
They Attack (& Hate) Those Who Disagree With Them
Go on twitter and look at the Women Against Feminism hashtag. Take a few minutes and read all the feminists hating on women using this hashtag.
Or, you could go and find a few articles on the hashtag. Notice how feminists talk about it. Notice how they view the people using the hashtag.
They look down on them. “Women against feminism” are sub-human, or at best ignorant [expletives].
They Throw Around the Victim Card
Women are victims of everything. Not enough women in science? It’s because of sexism. People don’t like the way you dress? You’re being oppressed. Your mom doesn’t agree with feminism? She wants to oppress you.
Instead of empowering women, feminists say that they first need to get rid of everything that’s “holding them back.”
What ever happened to moving past what people think of you? Live your own life. Who cares what they think?
Women are victims, all the time. The victimization never ends.
They Want to be Liberated from Everything They Don’t Like
During one conversation with a feminist, she told me that she’s oppressed because she can’t sleep around with men without being looked on in a negative light.
In her mind, someone’s view of her actions equaled oppression. She had to be “liberated” from that person’s view of her.
Here’s a little fact about life…people will view you in a negative light for a myriad of reasons. It’s your job to ignore it, move past it and not be held back by it.
Liberating yourself from other people’s personal opinions of you is done by ignoring them. Acting like a victim because of it doesn’t help.
They Create Division
The feminist movement is a fight between women and the patriarchy. You’re either with them, or you’re against.
Everything’s a threat, everyone’s an attacker or victim. Everything is a battle.
Their whole ideology is based on division. They’re not trying to unite people, they’re trying to wipe their enemies out.
So, how does this all come together? How do these seven points make feminism a failed movement?
Well, it all comes down to the environment they create. What message are they sending?
Is it, bringing people together on a common purpose? To defend women, to spread awareness, to empower women?
Or, is it about attacking women who aren’t feminists, stereotyping all men as evil, pushing out those who don’t agree 100%?
Most people who have experienced the message of feminism would have to say the second one.
I’ve talked a lot recently about connecting with those across the aisle. How do you reach out to democrats and moderates? How do you get them to trust you and eventually respect your views?
How do you evangelize?
Well, you don’t do it by hating, bullying, or demonizing them.
You build relationships. You talk to them. You find common threads that unite you.
Feminists suck at that.
You’ve probably guessed, but I’m a supporter of women. I share a lot of old-style feminist ideas, but I’m no feminist. I’m for everyone.
But try communicating that to a feminist and you’ll receive a harsh response. It’s like they don’t even try and understand you. They don’t want to make friends or allies. They want to hate you and vilify you.
All for disagreeing. Not fitting in. Going against their idea of what’s right.
That’s why the feminist movement is doomed to fail. The real defenders of women are the ones who also fight for blacks, property owners, children, and gun owners.
The real defenders of women believe in Freedom For All.
Feminists don’t. They’ll die out sooner or later, with nothing to show but a myriad of rant filled articles, bullied twitter users, and a feminist dictionary…that gives people headaches.
The feminist movement is on its way to a slow and insignificant death….
