Just go read this idiotic crap. I’ll wait. OK, got it? My
It’s not the fact she slammed knitting. It’s not about any one item she slammed. It’s the fact that after all these years, feminist STILL don’t get it! Feminism should never have been about being tough, it should have been about being able to do what you wanted to do because you were capable of doing it. Being paid the same salary as a male for the same type of job. Being considered for jobs that were normally reserved for a man. But somewhere along the way, or really, right from the start, feminism became all about being men instead of women. I do not, and never will, consider myself a Feminist. I find their rhetoric and goals misplaced. They tried to stop women from doing what they wanted, by demanding they walk in lock step towards some goal.
Think about it. Why was it necessary for all women to become breadwinners? Why was wanting to stay home and raise your family unacceptable to them? It was if they couldn’t allow any woman to veer from the message. If you weren’t in agreement with their stance, you were discounted. They badgered men to stop treating them like women, and it got through. Now we see a society where the younger generations have not been taught how to open doors for their dates, or any woman they meet in casual, everyday life. Actually, we have a society that pretty much is rude and obnoxious in too many settings, something that can’t be laid solely at the feet of Feminists. But that’s for another day.
If being a Feminist means I can’t be the woman I WANT to be, you can have your movement. I will not have my choices dictated to me.
Now, the other issue I have with the article. Just what is the “fear of the imminent zombie-vampire-Tea Partier apocalypse” point for? She lost all credit with that jab, wait, she never had any to begin with. When will the media start reporting what the Tea Party actually stands for, fiscal responsibility?
