Julie, our estimable colleague from New Zealand, has posted a quite arresting and memorable comment - and true to the CF tradition, I shall give it a showcase. Keep in mind that Julie talks to all sorts of women in the course of her activism efforts. Julie knows the temperature of the water out there, if anybody does!
Feminism has destroyed our young women in particular. Because feminism has been so busy to say that women were oppressed, and continue to hold men accountable, and give women every right to do as they please, and excuse ALL bad behaviour, our young women suffer.
Our young women WILL not and CANNOT be held accountable for their deeds thanks to feminism. This means that they have no boundaries. And their actions are begging for them.
They lie, steal, cheat and harm others as well as themselves - but nothing happens. They call males names, they hit, kick and even stab them. And nothing happens. They stand in public places and speak of their nasty deeds loudly for all the adults to hear and we CAN do nothing. We can't help them.
Teachers and social workers cannot be one on one with them for fear they will cry rape - and they do cry rape! And they can't discipline them.
But what they are crying out is, "Please love me. Please care enough to tell me where the line is". And these females are angry, very angry. And they don't understand why they can't have a boyfriend and they can't understand why they will be nothing more than used and discarded and they can't understand why they have no good people in their lives. Well done feminism. You have empowered these young women, all right.
But then what about the 20 and 30 year olds. What has feminism done for them. Well, they gave them choices but now they want to take away these choices and force them to be independent because a man cannot be a provider and protector for them. Feminism is so concerned about women having equal money that they are forcing them to give their children up to daycares and work. They are so concerned for their welfare they enslave them.
And now they are fighting for the children's rights against the mothers. Now mothers have no rights nor choices with their own children. Now the state takes their children straight from the hospital bed. Feminism doesn't even give a mother a chance to be a mother. They are too busy putting cotton wool around the children yet when they take them away they abuse them through their own welfare system. The state will never love a child like a mother and father will. The state will never be a family to a child.
Oh, I don't know. I think there are a few million women out there who have something to say about all this.
