Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives

feminists“When women go wrong men go right after them.”
— Mae West

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”  Winston Churchill wrote this over a century ago.

During my junior year in high school, the nuns asked about our plans for after we graduated. When I said I was going to attend State University, I noticed their disappointment.  I asked my favorite nun, “Why?” She answered, “That means you’ll leave four years later a communist and an atheist!”

What a giggle we girls had over that. “How ridiculously unsophisticated these nuns are,” we thought. Then I went to the university and four years later walked out a communist and an atheist, just as my sister Katie had six years before me.

Sometime later, I was a young divorcee with a small child. At the urging of my sister, I relocated to NYC after spending years married to an American executive stationed in Southeast Asia. The marriage over, I was making a new life for my daughter and me.  Katie said, “Come to New York.  We’re making revolution! Some of us are starting the National Organization of Women and you can be part of it.”

I hadn’t seen her for years.  Although she had tormented me when we were youngsters, those memories were faint after my Asian traumas and the break-up of my marriage.  I foolishly mistook her for sanctuary in a storm. With so much time and distance between us, I had forgotten her emotional instability.

And so began my period as an unwitting witness to history. I stayed with Kate and her lovable Japanese husband, Fumio, in a dilapidated loft on The Bowery as she finished her first book, a PhD thesis for Columbia University, “Sexual Politics.”

It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China.  We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:

“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
“What kind of revolution?” she replied.
“The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
“By destroying the American family!” they answered.
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
“By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
“And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
“By taking away his power!”
“How do we do that?”
“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
“How can we destroy monogamy?”

Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears.  Was I on planet earth?  Who were these people?

“By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.

They proceeded with a long discussion on how to advance these goals by establishing The National Organization of Women.  It was clear they desired nothing less than the utter deconstruction of Western society. The upshot was that the only way to do this was “to invade every American institution.  Every one must be permeated with ‘The Revolution’”: The media, the educational system, universities, high schools, K-12, school boards, etc.; then, the judiciary, the legislatures, the executive branches and even the library system.

It fell on my ears as a ludicrous scheme, as if they were a band of highly imaginative children planning a Brinks robbery; a lark trumped up on a snowy night amongst a group of spoiled brats over booze and hashish.

To me, this sounded silly.  I was enduring culture shock after having been cut-off from my homeland, living in Third-World countries for years with not one trip back to the United States. I was one of those people who, upon returning to American soil, fell out of the plane blubbering with ecstasy at being home in the USA. I knelt on the ground covering it with kisses.  I had learned just exactly how delicious was the land of my birth and didn’t care what anyone thought because they just hadn’t seen what I had or been where I had been.  I had seen factory workers and sex-slaves chained to walls.

How could they know?  Asia is beyond our ken and, as they say, utterly inscrutable, and a kind of hell I never intended to revisit.  I lived there, not junketed, not visited like sweet little tourists — I’d conducted households and tried to raise a child. I had outgrown the communism of my university days and was clumsily groping my way back to God.

How could twelve American women who were the most respectable types imaginable — clean and privileged graduates of esteemed institutions: Columbia, Radcliffe, Smith, Wellesley, Vassar; the uncle of one was Secretary of War under Franklin Roosevelt — plot such a thing?  Most had advanced degrees and appeared cogent, bright, reasonable and good. How did these people rationally believe they could succeed with such vicious grandiosity?  And why?

I dismissed it as academic-lounge air-castle-building.  I continued with my new life in New York while my sister became famous publishing her books, featured on the cover of “Time Magazine.” “Time” called her “the Karl Marx of the Women’s Movement.”  This was because her book laid out a course in Marxism 101 for women.  Her thesis: The family is a den of slavery with the man as the Bourgeoisie and the woman and children as the Proletariat.  The only hope for women’s “liberation” (communism’s favorite word for leading minions into inextricable slavery; “liberation,” and much like “collective” – please run from it, run for your life) was this new “Women’s Movement.”  Her books captivated the academic classes and soon “Women’s Studies” courses were installed in colleges in a steady wave across the nation with Kate Millett books as required reading.

Imagine this: a girl of seventeen or eighteen at the kitchen table with Mom studying the syllabus for her first year of college and there’s a class called “Women’s Studies.” “Hmmm, this could be interesting,” says Mom. “Maybe you could get something out of this.”

Seems innocuous to her.  How could she suspect this is a class in which her innocent daughter will be taught that her father is a villain?  Her mother is a fool who allowed a man to enslave her into barbaric practices like monogamy and family life and motherhood, which is a waste of her talents.  She mustn’t follow in her mother’s footsteps. That would be submitting to life as a mindless drone for some domineering man, the oppressor, who has mesmerized her with tricks like romantic love.  Never be lured into this chicanery, she will be taught.  Although men are no damned good, she should use them for her own orgasmic gratification; sleep with as many men as possible in order to keep herself unattached and free. There’s hardly a seventeen-year-old girl without a grudge from high school against a Jimmy or Jason who broke her heart.  Boys are learning, too, and they can be careless during high school, that torment of courting dances for both sexes.

By the time Women’s Studies professors finish with your daughter, she will be a shell of the innocent girl you knew, who’s soon convinced that although she should be flopping down with every boy she fancies, she should not, by any means, get pregnant.  And so, as a practitioner of promiscuity, she becomes a wizard of prevention techniques, especially abortion.

The goal of Women’s Liberation is to wear each female down to losing all empathy for boys, men or babies. The tenderest aspects of her soul are roughened into a rock pile of cynicism, where she will think nothing of murdering her baby in the warm protective nest of her little-girl womb.  She will be taught that she, in order to free herself, must become an outlaw. This is only reasonable because all Western law, since Magna Carta and even before, is a concoction of the evil white man whose true purpose is to press her into slavery.

Be an outlaw! Rebel! Be defiant!  (Think Madonna, Lady Gaga, Lois Lerner, Elizabeth Warren.) “All women are prostitutes,” she will be told.  You’re either really smart and use sex by being promiscuous for your own pleasures and development as a full free human being “just like men” or you can be a professional prostitute, a viable business for women, which is “empowering” or you can be duped like your mother and prostitute yourself to one man exclusively whereby you fall under the heavy thumb of “the oppressor.”  All wives are just “one-man whores.”

She is to be heartless in this.  No sentimental stuff about courting. No empathy for either boy or baby.  She has a life to live and no one is to get in her way.  And if the boy or man doesn’t “get it” then no sex for him; “making love” becomes “having sex.” “I’m not ‘having sex’ with any jerk who doesn’t believe I can kill his son or daughter at my whim.  He has no say in it because it’s my body!” (Strange logic as who has ever heard of a body with two heads, two hearts, four arms, four feet?)

There’s no end to the absurdities your young girl will be convinced to swallow.  “I plan to leap from guy to guy as much as I please and no one can stop me because I’m liberated!”  In other words, these people will turn your daughter into a slut with my sister’s books as instruction manuals. (“Slut is a good word. Be proud of it!”)  She’ll be telling you, “I’m probably never getting married and if I do it will be after I’ve established my career,” which nowadays often means never. “I’ll keep my own name and I don’t really want kids.  They’re such a bother and only get in the way.”  They’ll tell her, “Don’t let any guy degrade you by allowing him to open doors for you. To be called ‘a lady’ is an insult. Chivalry is a means of ownership.”

Thus, the females, who are fundamentally the arbiters of society go on to harden their young men with such pillow-talk in the same way they’ve been hardened because, “Wow, man, I’ve gotta get laid and she won’t do it if I don’t agree to let her kill the kid if she gets knocked-up!” Oppressed? Woman has always had power. Consider the eternal paradigm: only after Eve convinced Adam to eat the fruit did mankind fall. I.e., man does anything to make woman happy, even if it’s in defiance of God. There’s power for ya! Without a decent womankind, mankind is lost. As Mae West said, “When women go wrong men go right after them!”

I’ve known women who fell for this creed in their youth who now, in their fifties and sixties, cry themselves to sleep decades of countless nights grieving for the children they’ll never have and the ones they coldly murdered because they were protecting the empty loveless futures they now live with no way of going back.  “Where are my children?  Where are my grandchildren?” they cry to me.

“Your sister’s books destroyed my sister’s life!”  I’ve heard numerous times. “She was happily married with four kids and after she read those books, walked out on a bewildered man and didn’t look back.”  The man fell into despairing rack and ruin. The children were stunted, set off their tracks, deeply harmed; the family profoundly dislocated and there was “no putting Humpty-Dumpty together again.”

Throughout the same time these women were “invading” our institutions, the character of the American woman transformed drastically from models portrayed for us by Rosalind Russell, Bette Davis, Deborah Kerr, Eve Arden, Donna Reed, Barbara Stanwyck, Claudette Colbert, Irene Dunn, Greer Garson.  These were outstanding women needing no empowerment lessons and whose own personalities, as well as the characters they interpreted, were strong, resilient and clearly carved.  Their voices were so different you could pick them out by that alone.  We all knew Rita Hayworth’s voice.  We all knew Katherine Hepburn’s voice.

I dare you to identify the voices of the cookie-cutter post-women’s-liberation types from Hollywood today. How did these “liberated” women fall into such an indistinguishable pile of mush? They all look exactly the same with few individuating characteristics and their voices sound identical, these Julies and Jessicas!  My friend, Father George Rutler, calls them “the chirping fledglings of the new Dark Ages.”  The character of the American woman has been distorted by this pernicious movement. From where did this foul mouthed, tattooed, outlaw creature, who murders her baby without blinking an eye and goes partying without conscience or remorse come?  And, in such a short little phase in history?

Never before have we heard of so many women murdering their children: Casey Anthony killing her little Caylee and partying-hearty for weeks; Susan Smith driving her beautiful little boys into a lake, leaving them strapped in the water to die torturous deaths; that woman who drowned her five children in the bathtub?  “Hey, if I can kill my baby at six months of gestation why not six months post-birth, just call it late late-term abortion.”

I insist that woman always has been the arbiter of society and when those women at Lila Karp’s table in Greenwich Village set their minds to destroying the American Family by talking young women into being outlaws, perpetrators of infanticide, and haters of Western law, men and marriage, they accomplished just what they intended.  Their desire — and I witnessed it at subsequent meetings till I got pretty sick of their unbridled hate — was to tear American society apart along with the family and the “Patriarchal Slave-Master,” the American husband.

We’re all so busy congratulating each other because Ronald Reagan “won the Cold War without firing a shot” entirely missing the bare truth which is that Mao, with his Little Red Book and the Soviets, won the Cold War without firing a shot by taking over our women, our young and the minds of everyone tutored by Noam Chomsky and the textbooks of Howard Zinn. Post-graduate Junior is Peter Pan trapped in the Never Neverland of Mom’s (she’s divorced now) basement. Christina Hoff Sommers says, “Moms and dads, be afraid for your sons. There’s a ‘war on men’ that started a long time ago in gender studies classes and in women’s advocacy groups eager to believe that men are toxic… Many ‘educated women’ in the U.S. have drunk from the gender feminist Kool Aid.  Girls at Yale, Haverford and Swarthmore see themselves as oppressed.  This is madness.”

If you see something traitorous in this, a betrayal of my sister, I have come to identify with such people as Svetlana Stalin or Juanita Castro; coming out to speak plainly about a particularly harmful member of my family.  Loyalty can be highly destructive.  What about Muslims who refuse to speak out right now?  I was one of the silent but at last I’m “spilling the beans.” The girls have been up to something for years and it’s really not good. It’s evil. We should be sick to our souls over it.  I know I am. And so, mass destruction, the inevitable outcome of all socialist/communist experiments, leaves behind its signature trail of wreckage.

So much grace, femininity and beauty lost.

So many ruined lives.

    What crap! Feminists do not have to hate men. The ones who do have no influence on the rest of us.

    • Carlos_Perera

      True, Feminists do not have to hate men; certainly, American “First Wave” Feminists–women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony–did not. “Second Wave” Feminism has been another story altogether; the author’s sister, Kate Millet, is all too typical of this bunch. Haven’t you read anything by Millet, Dworkin, Firestone, or Hanisch? The reality is that Feminism, in its present avatar, is characterized by misandry. And such Feminists are the ones who control university programs in Feminism. Christina Hoff Sommers’ _Who Stole Feminism?_ gives a good overview of the problem.

      • Sharon Stewart

        I do not live in the United States, so perhaps that’s why I am less affected by the man-hating faction.

        • bob smith

          Sharon, your logic is off a tad. Republicans have
          literally blocked nothing of consequence unless I missed something. When someone continues yelling that the sky is falling, whether it is or it isn’t, is immaterial. So goes the war on women, on the climate,
          immigration, etc.,…what have the Republicans blocked of any consequence? Nothing!

          To your point that Utopia would require people to care about somebody else, well that is a false narrative. When these socialist mongrels decided to destroy the fabric of the American family and society at large in pursuit of ‘their’ Utopia, they did it with the conviction that they ‘did care’ about the plight of women in-so-far-as women at large were too stupid to see ‘their truths’, hence they knew better.

          These traitorous “sluttts” had the conviction of their beliefs trumping all women as if they “cared”.

          Whether you are on one side or another, the fact remains that be it code pink, girl scouts, Planned Parenthood, common core, NOW, etc., the Republic is
          at a crossroads on its way to socialism and the facts are irrefutable.

          The most important step in achieving a socialist utopia is first by expanding the welfare/nanny/entitlement state while implementing full throttle wealth redistribution and a single party system of politics.

      • Sharon Stewart

        I am a scientist in a male profession, actually. As a non-man-hating feminist I merely gave my opinion on the lack of influence the so-called second-wave feminists have had on me or anybody else I know. Zero. Nada. That does not mean I want to sit down and read a slew of books written by man-hating feminists so that they can begin to influence me. Not interested in the slightest.

        • Vagabond

          It is not about “You” – narcissistic woman. One person is insignificant – what is important is that these people are in position of power and influence and they influence literature policy, laws, institutions – and ultimately the zeitgiest.

          Feminism on the surface is advocacy for women…reality is that it is a parasitic sociopathic movement which has destroyed societies. Decay of Modern day Britain and America is directly related to feminism…and it is by design. Only a willfully ignorant and stupid person will claim to be a “non-man hating feminism”. Any one with an iota of sense would not associate themselves with these sociopaths.

        • Take The Red Pill

          “As a non-man-hating feminist…”

          As an American man, I can say with authority (by hard-taught experience) that there is no such thing as “a non-man-hating feminist”, not any more than there are non-Jew-hating Nazis — feminism teaches, promotes, applauds, and celebrates man-hating misandry in all forms.
          Any woman who describes herself as “a non-man-hating feminist” is only willfully deceiving herself.

        • ShlomoShunn

          > “I am a scientist in a male profession”

          What, pray tell, is a “male profession”?

          > “As a non-man-hating feminist”

          So you SAY.

          > Not interested in the slightest.

          Hmmmm. So if 97% of planes crash you’ll feel okay about flying…right?

          There’s no end to feminist illogic or sollipsism. It’s all about me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me!

    • Jim Fox

      Wow – here I am alone in thinking ‘this is a ridiculous polemic’ and I’M NOT! 68 years of admiring women won’r be perverted by either camp-
      women are wonderful.
      My university years didn’t turn me into a Marxist atheist and I suspect those who are turned are the none-too-bright students. By the way, why is atheism always conflated with communism? I was always an (unknowing) atheist, right from the day my sunday school teacher failed to explain the idiocy I saw in the Noah story…

      • Still Educating the Idiots

        Your confusion arises from the fact that YOU are the one “conflate[ing] … atheism … with communism” — they are not equal; one is simply a subset of the other. Communism is a subset of Atheism; for example, Pagans were Atheists (in the sense that we use the term “Atheism” today) but they were certainly not Communists.

        • Take The Red Pill

          As a pagan (an eclectic Wiccan), I can definitely tell you that pagans are NOT atheists. We Wiccan pagans believe in an equal God and Goddess; some pagans believe in a God and Goddess with the primacy of one or the other; others (such as Dianics) believe in only a Goddess. But we all believe that there is a world beyond this physical one, and that we have a spirit that survives our physical ‘death’.

          In case you have forgotten your basic education, atheists do NOT believe in any God/Goddess/spirit or divinity of any kind. To an atheist, there is no ‘hereafter’ or ‘afterlife’ of any kind, there is only this world and the ‘here and now’.

          And in case you have forgotten basic history, Marxist Communism denied the existence of divinity or spirituality of any kind, and also sought to destroy all religions of any kind where it took control. It had only one ‘religion’ (if you wish to call it that), and that was the primacy of the State.

    • Ibn Yusuf

      Agreed. Lots of “crap” in this article. For example: Susan Smith killed her children because she was psychotic, NOT because of “feminism”. And, as a man, I must admit that some/many men ARE toxic: Hitler, Stalin, Beria, Himmler, Eichmann, Pinochet, Assad, Arafat, et al. (The list is rather long, unfortunately!) BTW: The USSR was not brought down by “Saint” Reagan’s mellifluous pronouncements. Rather, the USSR bankrupted itself, and then fell apart. Let’s not revise history to suit our particular agendas.

      • Ray

        No, it was brought down by Reagan’s policies as well as his words. He caused them to bankrupt themselves. Former Soviet officials are quite candid in their admissions of this. They would know.

    • ManWithPlan

      Jessica Valenti, one of the world’s best-known feminists, recently wore a t-shirt stating “I Bathe In Male Tears” and thousands of feminists noted their approval.

      • Drakken

        Wait until an islamist gets ahold of her, then we shall see who is crying then.

      • Sharon Stewart

        They all nodded in unison? I’m try to picture this.

      • PlainOldTruth

        Valenti is pop-culture front line propaganda. The policy makers
        and their methods get ignored. USA is dominated by pop culture as the go-to
        topic. Meanwhile the real foes are busying themselves with large scale power
        grabs in anonymity.

      And Environmentalists don’t have to hate industrial civilization. The problem is that the movement’s leaders do, and the movement’s precepts lead to that result. It’s the same with feminism – you may believe you can remake it into a rather benign assertion of women’s fundamental rights (which do not include abortion, by the way), but you can’t – not when your leaders believe differently and your premises lead to that conclusion.

      • Sharon Stewart

        Who do you think my leaders are? I do not belong to any group. I think for myself. My idea of feminism is quite simple: men and women should be treated with respect, and men and women should be given the same opportunities to succeed. No man-hating is needed. Any feminists that I know feel the same way. The culture in my country is not American, so why are you suggesting that I should bow to man-hating so-called Marxist feminists in your country? This is not logical.

        • ShlomoShunn

          > “Who do you think my leaders are? I do not belong to any group. I think for myself.”

  • Carlos_Perera

    One thing has certainly changed since she was in a Catholic high school where the nuns were concerned over the spiritual hazard she would suffer if she went to a secular college (instead of a Catholic one): Now, most Catholic colleges are at least as toxic as any secular institution one cares to imagine. Only a handful–Ave Maria University, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Christendom College, Fisher More College, and Wyoming Catholic College come to mind right away–can be counted on seriously to form their students into committed young Catholic adults. The Cardinal Newman Society is a good source of a more comprehensive list of such colleges.

    • Midwester

      I would argue that most Catholic High Schools and Colleges are more treacherous than their secular counterparts since, at least, in the Public schools there is no pretense of specific religious or moral content, while in the Catholic schools one expects orthodoxy and a particular world view to be taught.

      • Manial

        Not in my experience and my youngest just graduated from a Catholic High School. Compared to his friends who went to public and private high school, there is chasm of difference between the two. I would give you though that the difference between his Catholic and education and mine is that there is less emphasis on the religion than I would have liked but it was still rigorous.

        • DianaG2

          Wow, you are lucky.

      • AugustineThomas

        Novus Ordo Catholicism is essentially leftism. This is why it’s so important to attend the ancient Mass and be “traditional” (read orthodox) Catholics.

        • whatistruth

          I wish I knew what Novus Ordo Catholicism is. I was raised Greek Orthodox. Converted to Catholicism in the sixties.

          • whatistruth

            I will google.

          • DianaFeb

            There is no such thing as “Novus Ordo Catholicism.”

        • D Kay

          This is a ridiculous statement. There are many orthodox Catholics that attend the NO Mass, including the recent Popes who are now saints. Orthodoxy means believing and following all the teachings to the Catholic Church, not the particular rite you go to.

      • Tantumblogo

        So the very best priest I know, completely traditional, in the FSSP (you will hear his voice constantly on Audio Sancto) ranks schooling options for faithful Catholics in the following order:

        1. Homeschooling
        2. Really conservative protestant school/uni
        3. Public/secular schools
        4. Nothing
        5. Catholic schools

        He is not joking. And many orthodox priests agree. Catholic schools are absolutely destructive of faith. A very few exceptions aside, virtually every single Catholic school and college is 100% gone over to sexular pagan apostasy. They must be avoided at all costs. So subtle are their ways and so pernicious their influence that all but the most well-formed souls will emerge from Catholic schools invincibly convinced of diabolical error. It is a scandal of mammoth proportions.

    • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

      An excellent point. This indicates that we’ve been losing the culture wars.

      • PlainOldTruth

        Surprising comment. It is generally recognized that the culture war was lost decades ago. It takes time for totalitarian institutions to have their full effect. The tyranny of “gender” ideology you are witnessing today, and which will increase, was designed and incrementally established over many, many decades now. — The public was busy with video games, being “awesome” and “coll” “and stuff,” watching TV and celebrity gossip and never learned the art of disciplined self-education. Voila!

        • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

          I recognize that the culture war was started decades ago, but I view it as a series of battles our side (the good guys) have been losing from then up until the present day (e.g. the fight over same-sex “marriage” was not lost 45 years ago when the cultural poison of Leftism was really just beginning to take effect).

          • PlainOldTruth

            Fair. It is all a matter of landmarks along the road of destruction. One US marker is the establishment of the Federal Dept of Education. There are many markers. I was close to some of the “cultural marxist” activists (in education)., When I attended an undergrad program almost two decades ago it was clear that the system was ready to go full stream collectivist indoctrination (centered in humanities and social sciences). Liberal Arts education was regarded as “reactionary.” Sadly, techies (including many anti-feminists) are astonishingly naive about what happens outside math, engineering, hard sciences and they are oblivious to the fact that the social history they were taught is largely bogus, always censored and frequently tendentious.

            So I’m sure we are much on the same page. We are living under an occupation. But it is so incremental and so well-propagandized the majority is lulled into non-resistance.

          • Mallory Millett

            This is why Thomas Sowell has been insisting for years that Depts of Education and Teachers’ Colleges need to be eased out of the culture. Along with Women’s Studies Courses they are the axes of the indoctrination onslaught.

      There is another very traditional Catholic College not too far from me, St. Thomas Aquinas in Santa Paula, CA. It’s a liberal arts school and it’s beautiful, small and the teachers and students are committed to the teachings of the Catholic faith and free thought as they don’t use textbooks. I love walking the campus because it is so peaceful and beautiful.

      • Mallory Millett

        My husband and I were just given a tour of Thomas Aquinas College and we were thrilled. My husband, Thomas, and I were with Thomas Dillon, one of the founders of TAC, and his wife Terri, on the last night of his precious life. We were all in NYC together celebrating the opening of the gorgeous Church he had just completed on campus. The next day he and Terri flew to Ireland whereupon he died in a car crash leaving the airport. He was a spectacular man and we were all crushed by his sudden/untimely death! We HIGHLY recommend this school….it’s a miracle!!

          Oh my God. That is so sad. What a tragedy, something I’m sure so hard to believe when you’ve just spent time with him. My heart goes out to his wife, family and friends. The tour of St. Thomas Aquinas, is that the one in Santa Paula, or a different one, as I’m sure there is more than one Thomas Aquinas in America.

          I love your writing and I have enjoyed your articles very much, especially the one written about the tragic shootings in Isla Vista earlier this year, “No Gun Ever Killed Anyone”, and the story of your sister Kate, whose name I remember from my youth. Isla Vista is about 12 miles from where I live. I’m honored that you responded to my comment. And may your friend Thomas Rest in Peace.

  • Pollitically Uncouth

    For some reason I have this notion lodged in my head that when somebody says something stupid(like the ones mentioned in the article do) the only consequence is that they just sound stupid. If sounding stupid is what they are trying to do, then what do I care.
    I also have good news. After teaching in public schools for the last 13 years, I have learned that children re completely impervious to brainwashing. For proof all you have to do is look at the Soviet Union. For 70 years the regime did everything it could to convert young people into “The new Socialist Man”. They tortured them, sent them to slave labor camps, forced them to study Marx practically around the clock, put up huge statues of Lenin and yet in the end all they managed to do is make young people shrug and say, “What ever…”.

    • Carlos_Perera

      With all due respect, as someone who actually comes from a Communist police state, I must disagree. Such societies do not have to brainwash everybody, or even a majority. A small but committed core of true believers is all that is required. Look at how pervasive the imposition of Feminist canons on American college campuses has become, with real consequences for students accused of “hate speech,” professors seeking tenure, and anyone accused of “sexual harassment” who is subjected to the Star Chamber proceedings that pass for due process on all too many campuses in this country.

        All it takes is for a committed minority to enforce the rules. That committed minority is willing to play dirty — REALLY dirty — to enforce conformity, and fighting back against such relentless haranguing is not something most of us are willing or able to do.

        When anyone steps out of line, that person is maligned and destroyed pour encourager les autres and the rest of us keep quiet to avoid the same fate.

    • purplepinto

      Perhaps I can shed some light here? What you are noting is that man always seeks his own independence. The free will that God granted us with is our natural state and we always will carry that need. Living under a regime that sought to stifle that basic human right was enough to enlighten those affected by it that ‘Hey, this ain’t the way to go, is it?’

      Now look at our spoiled, entitled youngsters living under the remaining benefits of freedom and liberty here in our sort of capitalist society ( I put it this way as the socialism monster injected itself into our system in the early 20th century). They’ve got this grass is greener notion and the lies of Marxism and Utopia take them pretty hard. I’ve tried reasoning with many, many die hard liberals. It is not only impossible, it is also quite like being in an abusive relationship, if you will. Have you ever tried to reason with a narcissist about your own rights and point of view? The dirty argument tactics with the narcissist are the same exact traits you run across in trying to debate with a died in the wool lib. It’s almost always impossible.
      You try to operate on a level of intellectual honesty and integrity, yet they undermine any attempt at reason, deny, ad hominem, re-write history, blame, derail the main point by sidelining….it’s the most maddening, pointless experience and if you’re not incredibly careful and disciplined, you end up right in the gutter with them. There is no enlightening the garden variety liberal to the lies. I find it very depressing for the state of our country and society.

      • Still Educating the Idiots

        I empathize with you greatly, because I, too, tried, for many years, to employ the tools of reason and demonstrations of actual experience, to debate intelligently with Marxists ( aka, Progressives, Social Democrats, Communists, Democratic Socialists, Fabian Socialists, & just-plain-good-ole’ Liberals — ). It got to the point where I took it so to heart, that I felt the top of my head was about to explode! However, I ultimately found the simple key to alleviating all of that unnecessary self-trouble. One only has to realize (quite truthfully & accurately, I might point out) that these people are, quite simply, mentally-ill. You cannot expect to debate reasonably & intelligently with a mentally-ill person: it is simply impossible to do so. So I stopped beating myself up over it, & — more importantly — I stopped trying to do it. One will NEVER succeed at convincing a mentally-ill person that he or she is wrong. Ultimately, one who is mentally-ill, can succeed in extricating himself (or herself) from the personal maze of illusions within which he/she is imprisoned, only through his/her own efforts. Sad to say, but such people can only find their freedom (if they ever do) solely through their own efforts and/or perceptions.

    So much truth, so much wisdom, so much compassion for those ruined lives. Thank you, Mallory, for “spilling the beans.”

    • PlainOldTruth

      It takes an experienced mature voice, of one who has intimate knowledge of the ideology and aims of the collectivists who deliberately grabbed control of institutions, in a coordinated long-term effort, to get to the root of the problem. Mallory exposes the bigger picture — based on real knowledge — and thus the article is worth more than ten thousand guessy OPINION pieces directed against the superficial face of pop culture feminism, or mere female opportunism. Wisdom (tempered by the discipline of knowing what one does not know) as is exhibited here is worth so much more than mere intelligence or well-meaning wishfulness.

        Problem is it’s still going on. It’s not just “those” women. It’s our young women today at Marxist colleges. This of that pathetic “woman” “Fluke” what’s her name.

        Problem is it’s still going on. Our young women are still attending colleges where Marxists principles are taught. So another generation lost if they get filled with the lies of Marxism. Think “Sandra Fluke.” Our own “President” is an advocate of everything Marxist.

        • Brenda Wife-of Michigan Watchm

          The deeper problem lies within the church! Feminism has permeated the church like a cancer! Women actively reject God’s Word as our final authority for all instruction in our lives, our family and our society.
          Women have abdicated their rightful place in the family as ”queen”, in their quest to sit in their husband’s place as ”king” of the home. Sad.

        “Sincerely repentant?” Are you kidding me?

        • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

          If Millett’s depiction of them may be taken at face value, then yes, I would say women crying themselves to sleep because of the opportunities they threw away by clinging to the false god of Feminism are now sincerely repentant, and deserving of more sympathy than the movement’s leaders.

          • pwnful truth

            The ones who repent probably tend to do so once they find themselves alone in late middle age. As has already been said, however, young women (and young men) continue to be indoctrinated en masse. Those doing the indoctrination, and there is no shortage of them, are obviously unrepentant.

            America can no longer be fixed by elections, not least because the electoral system itself has been corrupted by allowing welfare parasites to vote and through outright fraud. When the time comes to remedy the situation, measures must be taken against the enemy ensconced in our colleges and universities.

          • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

            I think your post quite interesting – you believe we’re past the “tipping point” and you may well be right. I certainly agree about the corruption of the electoral process by allowing welfare recipients (and don’t forget public-sector workers!) to vote. Remedying “the situation in another way” is another topic, although perhaps the most important of all. And if it comes to that, we will indeed have to take measures against the Left in colleges and universities, but I am not yet sure what they would be beyond privatization.

          • Mr Happy Face

            The corruption has already penetrated the US society at the institutional level. The only groups with the economic power to create the the required privatization are, for the most part: the institutions themselves.

            No. When there is this much corruption… well… I personally doubt that the solution will be peaceful (history is definitely not on our side when hoping for a peaceful resolution, I’d be happy to list a few examples if you want).

          • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

            What I propose is that we Conservatives acquire the power to run one of our own for President. That means beating the Establishment Republicans in the GOP or withdrawing and forming a new party. If we can win the Presidency, then we can begin to move this country back to the right. If we can’t, it’s time to start thinking about secession.

          • Mr Happy Face

            Sounds good in theory, but in practice…

            How would we acquire the power to run for presidency? To me, while this seems like the best solution on paper, I don’t know whether we could generate the economic or social power required to defeat the US political superpowers.

          • AMSilver

            I think the measures have already started with the increase in homeschooling. I think parents are starting to realize what they have to prepare their children for ideologically. The decrease in the numbers of men attending college is also a step in the right direction. The colleges have worked themselves into a place where they are necessary for sustaining the virulent ideology they want running this country, but are quickly making themselves otherwise useless. The quality of degrees in many colleges is neutral – or even negative. Many professionals will see the name of a college on a resume, recognize it as a party school, and toss it in the trash. By focusing on the university as a business model (and indoctrination center), they have made their degrees worth less as they inflate grades to keep students happy – meaning the degree is ultimately meaningless as a metric of what the individual knows. Additionally, as college costs continue to skyrocket, the amount a student would need to earn to repay the loan and still come out ahead of a person who chose to start their working career right out of highschool becomes more and more unobtainable. Additionally, the pool of jobs is shrinking comparatively to the number of people who need them, particularly the sort of high paying job a college grad needs to pay off his investment. Eventually, reality is going to come to these colleges, and they are no longer going to be able to operate they way they are.

          • Mr Happy Face

            I agree (I think… depends on precisely who we are referring to, and precisely how forgiving you are being :P ).

            The fault is with the liars. You can’t blame the indoctrinated for being human, because despite what we all like to believe; the right lie, told the right way, in the right situation can suck even the most intelligent people in.

            The movement is primarily anti-family. That is the core issue. The proponents of Marxist feminism are male as much as female. In fact the foundations were established by males primarily.

        • Random Chatter

          Agreed. If so many of them are repentant, why aren’t we reading more articles like this one? Why are there no real voices from “inside” the movement saying “we made a mistake, but here’s how we can fix it?”

          • Red Hood’s Assault

          Anti-patriarchy ideology goes far beyond opportunistic mean-girlism and chivalry (gynocentrism). Until the ideology (not at all created by one sex or the other, and not created and deployed preimarily to benefit women over men) of collectivist anti-patriarchy social engineering and the means by which it grabbed institutional power (by dominating education and the field of social history) then the observaqtion made by so many feminists that many of its critics are whiners who “blame the women” will continue to be embarrasingly true.

      • Mr Happy Face

        This is something I’ve long argued. Even if they aren’t repentant, it’s difficult to blame people for being human and falling victim to lies and deception. This is even more true for the new feminist generations, who are simply being fed lies from birth.

        Condemning all Feminists is the same as condemning all Muslims for the extremist actions of a few crazed lunatics waving an Islamic flag.

        • Random Chatter

          Oh Please, re-read the article. Do those women sitting around the table sound like they “fell victim” to lies and deception? No, they employed lies and deception to further their agenda. Stop making excuses for them.

          • Mallory Millett

            Right on, Random! The people who buy into this stuff are liars at their cores. They have no interest in truth. There’s always something behind their agenda and respect for facts and truth has nothing to do with it. They’re usually acting out their rage at the world, projecting their own shortcomings out onto the world and other people. They are using their wrath to “change the world” when it’s themselves they need to change. Beware of people who insist they want to change the world”.

      • Servo1969

        Many are not repentant. They’re old and actively infecting young women with their militant female supremacy. Make no mistake- that’s what modern feminism is: female supremacy. They chant “equality” all day but in the end what is the result? Women with no consequences, no responsibility to their anyone, and world where every woman is considered innocent when competing with any man.

  • Barbara

    I was only on the outskirts of the movement but was influenced by it. Naive me, I thought that the movement stood for equal pay for equal work. There’s nothing wrong with that. Also I thought it stood for women’s gaining equal respect in the culture, something they certainly did not have before the women’s movement no matter what the author of this article contends. Women have largely attained both these goals. And I’m very glad to see it.

    Regarding women’s voices: listen to recordings of women’s voices from the 50s and 60s. Most of them sounded like Marilyn Monroe–even Jackie Kennedy sounded like Marilyn Monroe. These are pre-women’s movement voices and were certainly not “empowered.”

    Having said this, I must appreciate and compliment Mallory Millett for her descriptions of the early women’s movement. I had understood the hatred of men displayed by some feminists and the distrust of the family unit to be the kind of psychological reaction one might expect to occur with such rapid change. However, Mallory Millett’s expose of their Marxist roots is eye opening.

    • Jerri Jones

      Barbara, I felt the same way. A couple of years ago I went to a convention that has a powerful feminist group and thought I would enjoy speaking to other women about having to fight for the right for equal pay and treatment in the workplace in the 70’s. Was that eye-opening! Not only did they basically treat me like a traitor because I was happily married with children and grandchildren but they also made it clear that they were elitist and that they were the only people who fought for equality. They also spoke of 1st, 2nd wave of feminists but I can tell you with profound sadness they did not respect the women that wanted to make choices different then their ideology. They could care less about the many choices women have today because women like us pushed to be acknowledged, made tough decisions about work/family, faced full on misogyny that they would never understand or could even stand up to. I was a determined woman who fought to give younger women the choices that we didn’t have and am ashamed at the women who refuse to stand with other women NO MATTER WHAT IDEOLOGY. The disgusting way that Sarah Palin was/is treated by women WHO SHOULD no better makes me sick. Women can vote for their candidates of choice. Women can run for President, Vice-President but when women gang up, put full on hatred for another woman and allow men to use them to denigrate her because she chose to be Conservative, or Christian, or running for VP with the opposite ideology makes groups like NOW, Feminists, Democrat Women and Actresses look like animals who eat their own. I’m proud to be a woman but I would not ever stand up for what Feminism is now.

  • DaCoachK

    Rush Limbaugh said it best long ago; his “Truth of Life #24″: “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.” This great article tells of the outright evil of feminism. Liberalism (Communism) will be the end of America, if it hasn’t already happened.

    • Sixties Survivor

      I have listened to Rush almost daily since he first went national 26 years ago. I admire, respect and appreciate him. On the “Truth of Life #24,” though, I wonder why it should be seen in anything but a positive light that “unattractive” or less attractive women be given easier access to the mainstream. Who benefits by their being denied that access?

      • Mom of Four

        I have to say that while the Truth of Life is a bit tongue in cheek, I prefer to think of it thusly: There is no absolute unattractive woman. There’s a lid for every pot, after all! But the sneer of a woman who thinks men are the enemy and the gift of womanhood is a curse is pretty darned ugly. Yes?

    • Pablo Martin Podhorzer

      I don´t think that you understand what Communism is. And lets not enter into the Welfare State, Keynesian economics, variants of Socialism, etc. Do you know that there is something called “Free Market Socialism”? Or “State Planned Capitalism”?

      First, read how markets were formed in the modern era (Polanyi). Then, the classic economists (Adam Smith, Ricardo, Marx). Then the counter-revolution (marginalism). Then Keynesianism, and then the “vulgars” (Samuelson). Then the monetarists (pseudo-science), and then, the myriad heterodox economists with their own variants of a possible future (basic income, free market socialism, electronic fiat money including jubilees, lots of interesting stuff that could/will be applied in the 21st Century).

      There is a handy book by Heilbroner book that tells you most of the story about economic thought.

      About American 3rd wave Feminism, I probably think the same that you think, albeit for different reasons.

      • Mallory Millett

        Enough with the falderal!!! I don’t care what ism you call a system. I wish to practice free enterprise: the collecting of my own fruits of labor and the use of those earnings in whichever manner I choose. PERIOD!!!!! I would not empower the state to participate in these actions in any way whatsoever. The only income tax I would consider appropriate would be a flat tax of no more than 15% levied upon EVERY ADULT in every economic grouping.
        I have been poor, rich, poor again, rich again, etc. Rich is always better. I have found that any poverty, at least in my case, was always a lack of creativity. If you are poor in America……get creative. You will not remain poor….creativity trumps poverty EVERY TIME. Therefore, I am categorically against the rich being coerced into sharing the fruits of their labors. We do excellently in the US with volunteer charitable giving.

  • johnlac

    I knew the sixties feminists were unhinged when I would read some of their venom-filled, anti-male tracts back in the day. Particularly idiotic were their assertions that the patriarchy established male and female identities, and it could all be changed through “proper” social instruction. Yes, those femi-nazis really believed that men were not naturally attracted to females and vice versa. It was all a hoax by the dreaded patriarchy.
    In reality, it was the feminists who established the hoax churning out millions of angry and ultimately unhappy females…female Donna Quixotes who have tilted against windmills their whole lives. Basically, they butted their heads against reality.

      Having two sisters myself, I have unfortunately watched both of. there lives ruined by feminism. I got married young and have four children and sisters want nothing to do with me because they can’t understand my life choices. I have been married 20 years and have been a house wife for most of those years. I homeschooled my kids a lot of the time but left the choice of home school or going to school to them. I also take my kids to church. I don’t drink, smoke, or shop till I drop. I live a frugal, simple life. I miss the sisters I grew up with terribly. But the women they have become, are not the kind of people that my kids need influencing their life. Yet, they are the ones who are self righteous and don’t want anything to do with me. I have three teen aged sons and I feel they will not find a good girl to marry. My daughter is young and because of the feminist movement, I plan to home school her.

    • Sharon Stewart

      For better or for worse, a socialist utopia is out of reach. People would actually have to care about somebody else for that to materialize, and right now the United States appears to be on the opposite course (viz. the Republican blockade of Congress since Obama became president).

      • bob smith

        I am sorry Sharon, but your logic is off a tad. Republicans have literally blocked nothing of consequence unless I missed something. When someone continues yelling that the sky is falling, whether it is or it isn’t, is immaterial. So goes the war on women, on the climate, immigration, etc.,…what have the Republicans blocked of any consequence? Nothing!

        To your point that Utopia would require people to care about somebody else, well that is a false narrative. When these socialist mongrels decided to destroy the fabric of the American family and society at large in pursuit of ‘their’ Utopia, they did it with the conviction that they ‘did care’ about the plight of women in-so-far-as women at large were too stupid to see ‘their truths’, hence they knew better.

        These traitorous “sluts” had the conviction of their beliefs trumping all women as if they “cared”.

        Whether you are on one side or another, the fact remains that be it code pink, girl scouts, Planned Parenthood, common core, NOW, etc., the Republic is at a crossroads on its way to socialism and the facts are irrefutable.

        The most important step in achieving a socialist utopia is first by expanding the welfare/nanny/entitlement state while implementing full throttle wealth redistribution and a single party system of politics.

            Socialists ALWAYS refuse to acknowledge the fact that socialism has always failed everywhere and every time it has been tried. They always fall back on their hackneyed reasoning, “It just wasn’t done right; we have to try it again…”. (They always also leave unsaid, “…and put ME in charge.”)

            I’m not really interested in the hair-splitting semantic games of a person who thinks 100 million victims means socialism isn’t “100% pure.” That’s like saying Hitler had some good points. You do know Hitler was a socialist too, don’t you? Re-examine your life. You are here advocating an ideology that has littered the planet with mass graves. Enough.

            Socialism” is sometimes used interchangeably with “communism”
            but the two philosophies have some stark differences. Most notably,
            while communism is a political system, socialism is primarily an
            economic system that can exist in various forms under a wide range of
            political systems.

          • JBluen

            You’re the one who brought socialism into the conversation by whining about how socialist utopia could be brought about if people would just “care about somebody.” You ignore the fact that non-socialist conservative Americans are statistically the most charitable demographic on the planet, and non-socialist Americans give far more to charity than their supposed socialist betters in Western Europe. You ignore the piles of dead people socialists have left in their wake. Stop babbling about my “projection” and start dealing with your own denial. Socialism is evil, and supporting it makes you an accessory to its crimes. You are not a good person just because you vote for the government to redistribute wealth at gunpoint.

            Why would anybody want to live in America? You succinctly explained in your diatribe why one would not. In fact, pretty much anybody I know in my country is glad to be living where we are (you know, socialised medicine for all). We are all so glad that American hegemony in the field of feminism has not caught up to Rumsfeld’s (see his Manifesto for a New Century and his plan for America to “stand astride the world”). No thanks. BTW, I was 14 in grade 12, so I doubt that I can be classified as cripplingly ignorant. How old were you?

            Socialism extracts money from productive people with the threat of force. Socialism was and is the lode star of communist governments. All the socialist realms in Europe attack free speech. Sweden has gone mad in imposing aliens cultures and religions on its own people. The Swedish political class is at war with native Swedes and seems intent on forcing little boys to wear dresses. Coercion is the essence of socialism and as it becomes ever more impossible to pay the freight or ignore the pathologies, the oppression and killing begin. The USSR and China killed millions in the name of socialism. It was pure communism there, don’t delude yourself. Communism IS about secret police, torture, execution and slavery. But dream on. Like millions of your fellow utopians, the lessons of the the 20th century are lost on you. You cry that utopia was not implemented correctly instead of being horrified by the carnage and the waste. You have the audacity to say only that implementation of the pretty ideal system was imperfect. Imperfect? Try “murderous.”

          • Lucian Vâlsan

            > Communism is not socialism

            Of course it is! Trust me, I lived behind the Iron Curtain.
            The only genuine difference between Communism and Socialism is the smiley face applied on the latter.

            In fact, the Swedish communists are to be respected for their honesty since they always say that they wish “Socialism with a human face” -> because even they know that socialism is anti-human by its very nature.

        I’m not. I am specifically referring to the fact that Conservatives have capitulated to Feminist demands, every step of the way, except maybe on abortion. For specifics, look at how religious conservatives have let Feminism corrupt Christianity. That’s just one example.

        Secondly, Conservatism has empowered Feminism (and female bad behavior in general) by continuing to insist that women be put on a Victorian-era pedestal where men are expected to care for them and fix all their problems for them.

    Thank you Mallory. You’ve unravelled a conundrum that’s had me stumped for the last forty years. These women fulfilling their narcissistic goals to the exclusion of all other considerations have been the primary drivers in the rise of the left and their current takeover of the agency of Government. So yoiu could say that Hilary Clinton was the one pulling the levers while Bill Clinton was President.

  • Daniel

    Mallory Millet’s report validates those who have feared the worst about Feminism for decades. But one has to ask……”what took you so long?”.
    The late, great Robert Bork proclaimed Feminism the most destructive movement to emerge from the Sixties due to the fact it destroyed the American family(in his seminal book- Slouching to Gomorrah).
    Feminism has roots going back to the Russian Nihilist movement of the late 1800’s. And as the precursor to Communism, Russian Nihilism had the same goal of family and societal destruction for the purpose of overthrowing the existing social order.
    American Feminism has always seen itself as a driver of history. But really its a symptom of a culture which is committing suicide.
    The prophet Hosea declared……”Those who sow the wind…will reap the Whirlwind.” When the sons of Mohammed arrive on Feminist shores, the sisterhood will get the sword.

            Where in one sentence did she deride feminism within her article? By the nature of Sharon’s statement, she conveniently interchanges feminism and Marxist feminism.

      Take a look at Proverbs 31. Know that this is a compilation of several women, not just one. The Proverbs 31 woman is no dummy, and is quite capable of carrying out commerce all on her own, and yet still has her purpose as a woman of God and family.

        Sorry, I don’t cite the bible in my academic work. It has no relevance.

        • purplepinto

          And therein lies the root of the void. If only you saw the relevance. Even if you were to view the Bible as simply a piece of literature, you’d see that the Christian or Jew who looks to this passage as the guide for the wife’s role is an empowered, capable, intelligent woman. One does NOT have to embody the feminist mantra to be a successful business woman.

          • Sharon Stewart

            What is this void of which you speak?

          • Sharon Stewart

            I see that my comment that I am a scientist and therefore a biblical citation about how women should act is irrelevant to me was censored and removed.

          Kate’s and my mother, Helen Millett, the youngest of eight children, graduated from college in 1923!!! She was the first in her,mostly male, family to do so. She had three daughters (I’m the youngest) and after our father left the family she went out into the world, long before the influence of radical-feminism had reared it’s ugly head, and became an extremely successful life insurance underwriter who eventually headed up the million dollar round table of her company. One year she was made “National Underwriter of the Year”. It was in no way feminism that “allowed her to participate in commerce and men’s activities”…….only her hard work and determination. You’re an hopelessly brainwashed puppet who sees the world only through post modern mindless glasses. There was a world here before you were born yesterday.

            Even most critics of feminism — since they were indoctrinated by adherents to “progressive” social constructionist historiography — cannot grasp the facts of the deliberate marxist-feminist takeover of institutions. Many Men’s Rights Activists are like zombies, in denial, so damaged by the culture self-esteem they do not even know how to educate themselves, They cannot tell the difference between facts and opinions (one of the legacies of “critical theory”).

    • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

      This isn’t the place to take up the history of the women’s rights movement, but the fact is that just as with blacks, women had made great progress in the decades before the ’60’s, principally the 20’s through the 50’s. The change was slow and un-radical in that it did not attempt to overthrow the social order, as healthy change in a free republic will always be. The fact is that women enjoyed most of the same rights as men from the beginning of the American Republic, including the most important of all in practical terms, the right to property. By the 1870’s women could even vote in some places, and in the later decades I mentioned a woman’s right to make her own sexual and career choices became more widely recognized.

      • Sharon Stewart

          I don’t know, but that was, of course, a long time before the 20’s through the 50’s. Also, some men were condemned as witches at those same trials, so I don’t think they can stand as an example of strictly female oppression.

    As a mother of three daughters, two with four year degrees at a State University….having seen the ravages of their education destroy the very fabric with which they were brought up on….I would not suggest a secondary education these days. My one daughter with a two year degree survived the onslaught with greater ease….maybe it was her personality, or it was not as prevalent on that campus. I do thank God that some of their education is being shed as they have grown into working women. They are throwing off the Marxist/Stalinist ideal….but still hang onto some of the lies that feminism offers. It breaks my heart as I see them make choices that have been indoctrinated into their souls.

        Do you have any kids? When your daughters go to college they are 17/18 years old and very impressionable. They don’t yet have the life experience to be able to identify a man-hating hag and so ignore her.

        I kept my daughter out of such universities for the very reason this woman cites. I found a university where there are no “women’s studies” departments. Four years later and she has not been ruined. I knew if I threw her to the wolves that I would never get my daughter back.

          • Natty Kadifa

            I don’t hold men to this statement. It is almost impossible not to be drawn into the ideologies promoted in culture. The indoctrination starts young. Especially if you do not have a strong family to counter act the influences. I myself, fell into the trap at university. Around a year or two after leaving I KNEW something wasn’t right and I started to adjust my ways. I had to explain to two 15 year old and 9 year old girls recently that getting married before having kids is a good idea, despite them coming from a christian household. Having compassion or sympathy for someone who have seen the error of their ways is the greatest gift you can give someone, MEN should most certainly be included in this, I feel ever so strongly that when someone finally changes they should be supported….

        By your logic we should give up the fight against Leftism, because it’s not our problem, it’s the responsibility of those who subscribe to it. While strictly true in the purely moral sense, you completely ignore the vital role education and philosophy play in a culture, and vital role culture then plays in politics. If you don’t want to live under a statist dictatorship, I suggest you help us (Conservatives) in the battle against the Left (which includes feminism).

        • ManWithPlan

          I’ve been fighting it for 15 years. One way it is fought is by holding women (and men) responsible for their actions, and not pretending like these women were just brainwashed or whatever.

          If women and men are adults, then they need to have the discernment to sort out truth from propaganda and they should be taken to task when they fail.

          Conservatives do this with young men, but seem to have a really big problem with holding young women responsible for their actions.

    • purplepinto

      I feared this as well, but survived my own time at the university in the early ’80s. I’ve tried to teach my girls to be discerning and knowing of the ‘plan’ if you will. I have a 24 yo, and a 20 yo. So far so good. Now to make sure the 12 and 10 yo also follow suit. :)

      I remember taking women’s studies in College in the 80’s – I remember feeling so confused about what my mother’s role in life was and feeling ashamed of my mother. Then I had two boys – I became a stay at home mom but worked part time – It was such a struggle to justify my at home-ness – It has paid off though. My oldest is married and stable, but my youngest struggles with the young women of today. Through the years and especially after my mother’s death, she has become my idol. I know she is smiling down on me, is proud of me, and has forgiven me.

Some gal was talking about her eating disorder and soon others were talking about what the hardest things to throw up were. Someone said: ‘well, the reason you are throwing up is because you are throwing up on your father’ – I was like: WHAT??? I could not get out of there fast enough, even if it meant free wine! Haha

    This is a caricature of the women’s movement. There was much to criticize about second wave feminism, but this is over the top. Sorry.

    • lostlegends

      Not hardly but damned accurate. Who the hell are you, evil one!

    • Midwester

      A caricature? You must be kidding. Anyone who has raised daughters or who was married after 1970 has been witness to the anti-life, anti-marriage, hedonistic philosophy spewed by these feminists.

      • Sharon Stewart

        Um, no. Neither I nor my daughter nor my granddaughter have been exposed to this anti-marriage hedonistic philosophy. Lucky us, I guess. (And we live in a different country, so that probably helps.)

      Get thee behind me, Satan.

    • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

      Nope, this was feminism’s essence. Some ladies like you and Sharon Stewart seem to believe you can remake feminism into your own image of what you think it should be, but you can no more do this than “moderate” Muslims can change the fact that their religion calls for a violent jihad against the unbeliever.

      • Sharon Stewart

        Don’t be ridiculous. I am my own person. I live my life expecting to be equal to anyone, and guess what—that is what transpires. I don’t want to remake feminism into my own image, and here’s why. I believe that each adult on Earth is responsible for their own 9 cubic metres of the universe. Take care of that well, and let the other adults take care of their own 9 cubic metres of the universe. That is all that is needed. Not fighting over whose ideology is better. Not being influenced by “leaders” that are telling you how to manage your own 9 cubic metres when you already know damn well how to manage it.

        • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

          At this time of night I’m too tired to argue, Sharon, but I think everything you wrote just proves my point. As for “I believe that each adult on Earth is responsible for their own 9 cubic metres of the universe,” I hate to tell you this, but that is an ideology of sorts – I’d call it “quasi-Libertarian” as a first guess of what it means. So to defend that point of view, you must fight over that ideology being better than those whom, I suppose, want to manage “your 9 cubic metres” – and if that sounds somehow suggestive, I can only apologize and say truthfully no sexual innuendo was intended.

          • Sharon Stewart

            All I said is what I believe about the inviolable boundary around each adult (since one’s children obviously need help managing their own 9 cubic metres). I don’t think what I believe counts as an ideology (though perhaps it could be the first step in developing one). Even if my simple belief were an ideology, obviously I could not or would not fight over it, as that would violate the principle of each adult minding their own business, wouldn’t it. Yes, it’s simple. And yes, it would end all conflict. Here is the definition of ideology from the American Heritage Dictionary:

            1. The body of ideas reflecting the social needs and aspirations of an
            individual, group, class, or culture.

            2. A set of doctrines or beliefs that form the basis of a political, economic,
            or other system.

        • pupsncats

          Well Sharon here in the U.S. many of us feel the same way but the problem is our government bureaucrats have this idea that it is their right and duty to decide for us how to take care of our own property, or even confiscate it if useful to them. And the femi-Nazi’s that are some of our government bureaucrats are all too happy to decide for us all that we will not only help fund their anti-man, anti-family, anti-child policies, but send our children into their dens of evil entrenched in our public schools and colleges and universities because they are the ones who have the most control in them.

  • Virgil Hilts

    Two quotes.
    The late Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn put his finger on the problem when he said:

    “The timid civilized world has found nothing with which to oppose the onslaught of a sudden revival of barefaced barbarity, other than concessions and smiles.”

    “The history of the race, and each individual’s experience, are thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill and that a lie told well is immortal.”

    There are many accounts of the flaws of second wave feminism: I wrote a lot of them. See http://clarespark.com/2012/09/04/links-to-blogs-on-feminism/. “Links to blogs on feminism.” I would not take Kate Millett’s sister’s account as gospel truth, but then I am a mother of two daughters and grandmother of five girls.

      And you’re a female who’s actually able to write online, drink alcohol, and make your husband ask your consent before he does anything in bed? You are riding on feminism. Women across the world are raped in marriage. Thank the good lord you don’t have to go through with that.

      • georgetrue

        Riding on feminism?? You seem to know so much that just isn’t so. My mother and grandmothers were not raped in their marriage beds. And they drank alcohol whenever they decided they wanted to, same as any man. And that was well before the age of so-called feminism.

  • herb benty

    We were Created to be in and to form, families. Feminism/Communism is a lie.

  • abca

    its never the poor, the uneducated, the loser who starts a revolution. The bored children of the elite start it..The elite of the comunist movement came from good houses, some where rich, some where from excellent educational institutions and some where both of them. The same core do you also find in the islamic revolution today. The leaders like Osama bin Laden came from very wealth and good educational houses. Many of the islamic leaders are doctors, engineurs or other academics, who studied in the west. The RAF (Red Army Fraction) in the 70ies in Germany which terrorized more than 2 decades of Germany and killed a lot of people came directly from the universities and many of them had a wealthy background. Revolutional ideas starts mostly in universities and from rich bored kids. Or have you ever heard that some poor african farmers kidnapped a plane and demanded for more help. Or that some hungry east europeans took the mayor of their city as hostage? The elite manipulate the poor and hungry for their aims with lies and false promises. At the end the poor and hungry find themselves as cannon fodder for the elite and often in a much worser situation than in the beginning. The elite never cares for the poor and hungry. Imagine that the feminist movement in a dystopian future has the power to manipulate and control the people. The lower caste of the society is under full control and (must) live the ideas of the elite. No family, No allowed sex with men etc. etc. But the elite will taste the forbidden fruits which they not allow for the lower caste. Osama bin Laden had a pornografical movie collection but never allowed his followers such things. He motivated his followers to destroy such things because it is unislamic. They allways pray water and drink wine.

  • lostlegends

    I married South East Asian. Not in small measure to escape white feminist bitches. Never looked back. Boys, there’s a billion women in Asia who think you’re a great example of the finest breed of men to ever come down the turnpike. You don’t have to settle for a white feminist man hater. Go to Asia, find a wife, raise a family and be happy.

    • ManWithPlan

      I’m glad you had good luck, but marrying women overseas isn’t a panacea. There are bad apples everywhere.

      • lostlegends

        Yes, but they aren’t feminists-marxists, avoiding which is the point. In addition, Asian women are pro-family, and not wild about abortion, either. Do you know what a Chinese girl will do to have four kits?

        • ManWithPlan

          If men are cautious and discerning, I think it’s awesome if they go overseas for a mate.

          • Ella Lohan

            Most of these marriages end, and the woman will usually cheat on the man.

        • Ella Lohan

          Korean women are very abortion-happy due to issues with family honor. Indonesian men will abandon a woman he gets pregnant, and many Indo girls are on birth control. Chinese are abortion-happy to boot, not to mention that children out of wedlock go to you rich, white Conservative Americans for your entertainment because they can’t stand the idea of having a baby by herself. Research!

    • Sharon Stewart

      Yes, move to China where females are prized. Oops, they’re not. Now they have the problem of 25 marriageable males for every female. Time for some tough competition, I suppose.

      • Di

        And the wonderful medical procedure of abortion – a “sacrament” in Nancy Pelosi’s eyes – has quite a bit to do with the shortage of females in China. Or so I’ve heard.

      • Ella Lohan

        Perhaps this will change China for the better. Women there have always run the show, and will become even stronger because the power will be reversed. You don’t dare mess with a Chinese woman as it is, because she makes a person pay.

      • Ella Lohan

        Oh sorry, you’re the feminist one ^^;

        • Sharon Stewart

          I am an ordinary non-man-hating feminist (which means that I believe men and women are worthy of equal respect and equal opportunity). Fortunately, because I do not live in the US, man-hating feminism has had zero effect on my life or my daughter’s life or my three granddaughters’ lives. Even the women-hating comments I have received here in the past few days have not affected my life or my ideas. And despite what some people have said here, I am not complicit in murdering 6 million Jews or 100 million Russians.

Nuclear weapons will be used and get the jon done, like in the Middle East…from Trípoli to Teheran bypassing Israel, they should go back to bitting the sand as most are anyway…

    I liked the article and believe that is a truthful representation of what the writer experienced in that time of history and currently. One other small correction: Katharine Hepburn was a Feminist-Atheist, fan of Margaret Sanger and Abortion.

    • http://www.dilbert.com scook84

      I would have used Audrey Hepburn… She epitomized what it means for a woman to have class. Something sorely missed today.

      <3 Muah!

      • Still Educating the Idiots

        My sentiments exactly! Audrey had MUCH more class than Katherine could ever have hoped to have. All she really had going for her (Katherine) was her irrepressible pretension.

      • Mallory Millett

        I agree with your admiration of Audrey Hepburn. I adored her and her edifying femininity; not that femininity had anything to do with my assertion, as these women were all different types. I’m all for adding her to the mix. She was one of a kind, wasn’t she (?) and adds richly to my list of pre-radical-feminist individuals.

        • http://www.dilbert.com scook84

          I was a child of around 10 when I first saw Audrey on the big screen. She was a role model to me and what I aspired to.

          Beauty, charm, and a calm demeanor. She prized family over fame and gave of herself in support of UN relief efforts (back when the UN meant something).

          I’ve not seen that mold of woman from Hollywood since.

      Some groups of people will continue to hold out and live Godly lives. You see it among many Christian groups; I live it in a right-wing Orthodox Jewish community. My sons, aged 22, 25, and 30, grew up in a solid, traditional family with two parents who love each other and them. Two of them have gone on to create similar families. And sorry, feminazis, I have been far more successful as an engineer, a high-tech entrepreneur, a poet, a novelist, and yes, a wife and mother, than you and your grievance-mongering sisters can ever imagine being. In another generation or two people like me will still be here, but the evolutionary dead-ends that inhabit the left will have rendered their own species extinct.

      Reread the article and Chris’ 3rd sentence.

    • Mallory Millett

      Because it was the women who smashed and destroyed Western Culture by not understanding that men run the world and women run society. They abdicated their all-powerful roles as wife, mother and societal setters of the rules and mores of our communities. Mommy left the home and abandoned what children she didn’t kill and that set our culture on it’s ear. Marriage is the only way that we can set ourselves straight. Right now only 45% of all children in America are living with their mother and father in a contiguous home. Over 60% of children are born to an unmarried woman. THAT always has and always will destroy a society.

      “By destroying the American family!” they answered.

      “By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
      “And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.

          Gosh, how can you be so outdated! How can you ignore the falsified report of a deeply troubled and sadistic Dr. Kinsey that triggered the so-called sexual “liberation” that paved the way to women’s lib? Or Nicholas Rockefeller’s admission to Aaron Russo that the R Foundation financed the “feminism liberation movement” to be able to tax the other half of the population AND to take children away from their mothers and entrust them to the government to be educated according to the leftist standards?

          Subservient and submissive… women in the past ruled kingdoms, governed their inherited vast domains, fought on the castles walls, were doctors of the church; married or widows, they trained and supervised their servants, monitored the education of their children, ran the household, managed and increased the family’s assets; ran the shop, worked the farm, crossed an ocean with other immigrants and built a new life for them and their families; and have immersed themselves in arts, science and politics since the 17th century. “Subservient and submissive”? My poor man, they would have made short work of you in a heartbeat!

          And what have we won with the “women’s lib?” We already had the right to vote which was, indeed, an asset, although it did not put an end to wars, as promised by the suffragettes – that should have made us suspicious of women’s lib.

          With women’s lib we won double workload, for in addition to running the home, we now MUST also “have a career”, whether or not we want it. Which means leaving home every day to serve “the boss” figure, whatever shape and form it may take; and entrusting our children to perfect strangers with variable results. And that is the best alternative, the other one being to live and die alone without a family.

          Instead of “making love” with the man of our life, whether we like it or not now we MUST practice the spare time activity which consists of “having sex” with as many partners as possible. Which brought us AIDS and abortion, since women’s lib failed miserably in convincing women to either practice contraception or keep their legs crossed, and in any case to take responsibility for their acts.

          We won dysfunctional families with disrespectful and alienated children; we won multiple, bitter divorces; we won a surge in homosexuals and other sexual deviations; we won the multiplication of battered, abused, raped women.

          And on top of everything, we won the right to carry the luggage, change the car tires and have doors slammed in our faces. Thanks, women’s lib!

            Do makes you think the radical feminists you may have “knocked up” ever considered it any of your business that a child with half your DNA briefly lived?

          • William

            Feminists have nothing against kids. At the risk of getting too personal, I have that discussion with the women I sleep with before there’s any chance of getting her pregnant. As a feminist male, I see it as my duty to help out women. If I impregnate a woman I am not married to, I will still take responsibility for the child. I’ll never understand men who abandon their kids.

      And what does that have to do with “feminism”?

  • Alleena

    Growing up in the fifties and sixties, I saw a lot of feminists on talk shows. At the time, they has some valid points about women’s opportunities. When they got into the more radical stuff I tuned them out. I have heard for a long time that they had a radical agenda, but I didn’t realize how radical. Those women sitting around a table treating communism like a religion make my skin crawl. The women’s studies at colleges and universities are a cancer on our educational system which should be removed from the system and checked frequently to see if it comes back. And at present in many parts of the world, women are being murdered and abused. What have the feminists said about this? Nothing?

      “Women`s Studies” as a college course is about as worthless as “Underwater Basket Weaving”.

      Whom does GLORIA STEINEM represent? She has rarely written a kind word about men and has signed her name to every leftwing manifesto possible. This is not “feminism” – this is Marxism. I believe there is a book, “How the Left Hijacked Feminism” or something like that. Also, note: abortion is treated like a religion There can be no compromise on this issue WHATSOEVER. Abortion is now described as “women’s healthcare”. In the past it was “reproductive healthcare” but that talking point is no longer working. Also note the refusal of so-called feminists to condemn a monster such as KERMIT GOSNEL, a veritable serial killer of babies and women in Philadelphia. Some feminists even blamed prolifers for the practices found in Gosnel’s abortuary for demanding that abortion mills have some standards of hygiene. And also note, the large number of children – particularly in the minority community – growing up without fathers. Your body, your choice, YOUR PROBLEM. Thanks, ladies!

Also read there was a late-term doctor shown in this documentary in a sympathetic way. Not Kermit Gosnel. A doctor practicing now. What you were not told is that in this doctor’s “facility” many women died because of the procedures.

      It takes guts to speak out in a time when exposing the ideology of this cult gets the zombie chorus of “McCarthyism” and “conspiracy theorist” hurled at you — even by people who dislike feminism (while at the same time fearing to face the well-documented facts, to study and discuss its ideology and its “praxis” in public.).

    No not at all. It’s their responsibility for destroying their own lives.

    Conservatism has helped keep women on a pedestal where they aren’t held responsible for the mistakes they make, and are given special female privileges. This empowered Feminism’s march through our social institutions.

    • Still Educating the Idiots

      I agree with you 100% in the spirit of what you contend, except that I find it mandatory to point out that the people you are referring to, are not (were not — as this has been going on for at least 50 years — if not 100 years) true Conservatives: they are (were) the false “Conservatives” (today, we refer to them as “Establishment” Conservatives). The REAL Conservatives never bought into this crap at all. The problem is (was) that the Real Conservatives didn’t have as large and as loud of a bullhorn, as did the false “Conservatives”

    • nightspore

      I think the problem was that most people take a live-and-let-live attitude. We’re not naturally equipped to deal with zealotry. And in a mass society we don’t pay attention to developments outside our own local worlds.

    A savage indictment of feminism and the Left by Millett, perhaps the best at short length I have read since Midge Decter skewered the movement a number of years ago. The wreckage of the ’60’s, the “Destructive Generation” as Collier and Horowitz named it, continues to this day.

  • M.P.

    Wow. I fell into a liberal feminism in college. Led to ‘having sex’ and even abortion. I regret those years more than I can ever say. God is forgiving and I have now been married for decades and have become a pro-life advocate. But the ‘feminazi’ movement has meant 56 million abortions and devasted families and the rise of legalizing sodomy. Intrinsic evils proliferate.

No doubt you think fatherless children are “no problemo” and think same-sex “marriage” a grand display of equality, too.

      Is there a term for turning someone’s comment around and trying to force them into a box of your own choosing and then telling them that, therefore, since they’re in that box, they must think such-and-such? There’s a lot of this going on here. It seems de rigueur. It’s not the way to debate an idea, that’s for sure.

  • http://islesofmyst.webs.com Raibeart MacIlleathain

    I created a world where the feminists won. Men are enslaved, or “bond-slaved”, and any woman can choose any man or any number of men to exist as part of her Whorde. Once claimed, a man has no say in the matter, and unless another female challenges the initial claim, the man becomes the first woman’s property.

    On this “wedding” day, he is stripped by the bridesmaids, dragged naked thorugh the streets and into the Hall of Union where he is kneels or lays at the “bride’s” feet. She proclaims in a loud voice, “With this mark, claim I thee, body and soul for all eternity, I am your goddess, and you my slave forever.”

    At which time she pulls her iron from the fire and sear her mark of ownership (Her Unique Triskelion) into his palm.

    Any offspring from sexual union results in the goddess checking into the incubatory and giving birth only to have the nursemaids whisk the child away to mammary before bonding can occur, and the child will grow up never knowing his or her parents’ identities.

    For the remainder of the bond-slave’s life, he must always walk three paces behind his goddess in public, never speak until spoken to first, and he must submit to whatever contractural agreements his goddess reaches with other females.

    Problem is, the males will do anything possible to escape their fate, including fleeing to Earth, but then find the same cancer growing there as on Gaelathia.

    Problem two, is the women. They soon grow tried and contemputous of their subservient males and often dream of them making the decisons. These females are easily afflicted by emotions that can never be denied for long, and they too escape to Earth to live among the humans and hide from their own kind.

    But the Evil and all-powerful Sorority that rules Gaelathia will stop at nothing to destroy every Fallen Angael they can get their clutches on and thus preserve the Sacred Way handed down for millennia by the Supreme Goddess Gaea.

    Naturally, the novel is called “Falling Angaels”.

    It should be out by the end of this year. I hope readers will enjoy it as much as I have writing it.

    • http://www.stubbornthings.org NAHALKIDES

      Uh, is this some kind of submissive sexual fantasy, or did you intend to portray the dire results and inevitable collapse of society into tyranny once feminism’s dictates are adopted? I see hints that it is the latter (I hope so), particularly where the females dream of the males taking charge.

      • http://islesofmyst.webs.com Raibeart MacIlleathain

        What I didn’t indicate is that on Gaelithia, a schism occurred between the Gaels (children of Gaea) and Sons of Hashem (believers in Hashem Yawhua)….. The Hashemites dwell on their own continent and have their own people arriving on earth to follow the example of former Sorority assassin Gillean Fraser who remained behind after his mission and was converted to Christianity… and became a minister of the gospel….

        So, it has much more than submissive fantasy and even spiritual warfare that comes to a point in 1951 Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

      And one popular notion among deluded MRAs is that we all need to get together and stop criticizing the monstrous growth of government and instead just beg louder to be allowed by OUT LORDS to have civil liberties and proper rights. It’s like begging the Mafia to quit collecting “protection money.” Beggars shall be losers. Complainers (without good strategy and good information) shall be losers.

      Wow, what vitriol! Why it still amazes me that women who claim the title of Feminist are the meanest monsters to women they feel are beneath them. Most women involved in changing the society were not elitist snobbish feminist-labeled men haters. Most were regular women that wanted fairness in pay, benefits & treatment. They didn’t need a pat on the head or a label to make them women for equality. Your remarks are the best example of elitist progressive women who are selfish, arrogant & lack any form of empathy for all the women around them. You care more about free birth control then what is happening in the world. I didn’t even run into one of you when I took women studies in college.

  • tagalog

    “How could twelve American women who were the most respectable types imaginable — clean and privileged graduates of esteemed institutions: Columbia, Radcliffe, Smith, Wellesley, Vassar; the uncle of one was Secretary of War under Franklin Roosevelt — plot such a thing (the destruction of the institutions surrounding male-female relations)”?
    The same way they can parade around with signs that say “I LIVE IN RAPE CULTURE” when in fact they live in the most woman-pampering society that has ever existed (including any societies that might once have been dominated by women), and other women accept that claim as a given, an obvious fact of their lives.

    • Daniel Freeman

      The same way they can parade around with signs that say “I LIVE IN RAPE CULTURE” when in fact they live in the most woman-pampering society that has ever existed

      To be fair, they are accidentally correct, just not in the way that they mean. By cultural habit, our society excuses and laughs at the rape of men by men — “well then he shouldn’t have got himself put in jail” — and denies and erases the rape of men by women. If the term “rape culture” has any meaning at all, then we do, in fact, live in one.

      • Eric

        If the ghastly excesses of human bondage practiced by ‘PrisonUSA, Inc.’ are ever brought to light, then it will be seen in the end, that a far greater number of *men* are raped in this misandric culture, than women. If the overall number merely amounts to some 400,000 per year, then that is some 1,000+ rapes of men every day.

        Since there are nearly 1,600,000 inmates incarcerated (as of 2012, source: http://sentencingproject.org/doc/publications/inc_Trends_in_Corrections_Fact_sheet.pdf ) in State prisons alone, if anything this estimate is probably on the low side of whatever the actual figures are (don’t expect CCA to supply you with accurate stats).

        There were 694 State pens in 1984 (source: http://bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/pdsp.pdf). With the prisons-for-profit (“corrections”) industry in high gear since that time and the commensurate population increase of some 400%, there no doubt have been many built, since then. If merely doubled for 4x the population, then that would be 1,400 ‘Pens’. Can anyone seriously imagine that there are not at least some dozens of male rapes committed every day, in every one of these prisons? 30 (a minimal estimate) x 1,400 x 365 (rape doesn’t take a day off) = 15,330,000 rapes each year!!

        Suppose that there are but a handful of male rapes committed as a daily average. Then, at merely 6 rapes/day, then this would amount to at least 3,066,000 rapes each year! So: exactly *WHO* suffers more rape and murder in the world, today?

    • Bewildered

      He is/was a wise father.

  • http://tinatrent.com/ Tina Trent

    Mostly true, but only half of the story. Before Ms. Millett, there were Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, and especially Playboy magazine. The earlier sexual revolution was male-driven, and technically, male liberation via the male-writer driven sex revolution (hipsters beatniks and swingers) came before feminism. Through both these revolutions, men abandoned families en masse, in far higher numbers than women by powers of more than a hundred, and you only degrade men by claiming that they were only powerless and helpless and duped.

    In reality, men were perfectly capable as they were pursuing their own Marxist, family-destroying, soul destroying, child abandoning descent into chaos. And, to be historically accurate, that “revolution” preceded the feminist movement by a good fifteen years. And it was run by men. Playboy was far more destructive, and it affected far more families, and it was just as bluntly political as Millett’s actions, though this is forgotten today.

    And it had the same effect on male character as feminism had on womens’ character. Let’s give every individual credit for being capable of making their own bad decisions. When you infantilize men to the point of claiming that they are all victims of all-powerful feminists, you aren’t saying anything different from those NOW lunatics.

    • Mallory Millett

      So true, so true and perfect grist for another essay. I knew Mailer and he was the epitome of the (excuse the expression) male chauvinist pig……also knew his last wife, Norris Church, an extraordinarily exquisite woman whom he ground down to a ghost of herself…..broke your heart to witness. He and my sister held a famous debate at TownHall in NYC and he wrote an entire book about Kate Millett called “Prisoner of Sex”. His pomposity was excruciatingly obnoxious!

  • nimbii

    A compelling article that pulls the reader into every sentence.

    The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) underwrites directly and indirectly, all wedge issue movements such as the feminist movement and has for decades.

    David Rockefeller is on record thanking the NYT, WAPO and other major media outlets for not reporting on the CFR for the last 20 years because the American people would not have stood for what they were doing.

    Rockefeller, was the honorary chairman of the NY chapter. He jokingly commented that the CFR supported feminism because it brought more women into the workforce and thereby improved the GDP and also because it further separated mothers from children giving the state a greater influence over their upbringing.

    How cold is that?

    How many of our bodies will they step over to have their way to control all global economic activity?

    • Sharon Stewart

      I have known for at least 40 years about problems that can occur when women get pregnant in their 40s. It has hardly been a hidden topic. Ever heard of the biological clock? Every young woman is aware of it. Maybe young women of today know all about it because (a) the second-wave feminists (not being as powerful as Rumsfeld et al.) are not hegemonic enough to influence my country or (b) science is still being taught here.

      • nimbii

        I respect your reasoned opinion and of course, the biological clock is ticking in every living thing. My point is that the vanguard of the feminist movement did a disservice to women by telling them they could have it all and that many 40’s women were having babies. Not to worry.

        Then medical science began to analyze ovules of women in their 40’s because some high profile women were giving birth to Downs children. They found a higher percentage of ovules to be genetically defective. I recall related articles where feminists downplayed this and pushed for research on sperm in older men that was similarly defective perhaps in an effort to convey a sense of social justice among 40 something women.

        This is much like they now downplay increased breast cancer rates among women who have had abortions. They say the data from India and China is not applicable.

    • Ella Lohan

      That’s mostly with Asian families, or with embryos that have congenital disease. Do your homework before you judge.

      • AliceL

        No, you do your homework! Tiller performed abortions on girls who wanted to fit into their prom dresses and there are women who don’t want the child with the wrong “sex”! You really are into “congenital diseases” aren’t you? Himmler and Eichman would have approved as would Margaret Sanger since she did not want those “weeds” to live on the planet earth. And there are the women who do in vitro and discover they are having twins or triplets and decide to get rid of one or more of the pesky creatures through “reduction”. It’s a brave new world you are creating, Ella Lohan: enjoy living in it!

  • nimbii

    Thank you Mallory Millett. Every sentence was compelling.

    About 10-15 years ago, many of the staunchest feminists were in their early 40’s, had their careers and were ready to have a family. They found out what their feminist leaders went to considerable lengths to suppress…the odds were against them at that late age for having normal, healthy children.

    As usual, with all divide and conquer wedge issues, feminism has its underwriters largely found within the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). David Rockefeller told an informer that the CFR supported feminism because it brought more women out of the home and into the workforce thereby improving GDP. The CFR also supported it because it further separated mothers from their children.

    How cold is that?

    What misanthropic revolutionary expedience is evil enough to ideologically mislead and deceive intelligent persons into not having loving generative lives as moms and spouses?

    All so globalists can once again, use the divide and conquer model to further destroy our unity and contort our troubled cultural soul by destroying the family?

  • dicentra

    Were they merely “man hating” they could be dismissed.

    The sociopath always starts with “woe is me,” then uses your pity as a rancher uses the ring in the bull’s nose: to lead you wherever she pleases.

      After “rich white woman” comes “rich jewesses.” Thus “white” slur is pure Marxism. Plenty of “rich” women come from poor iummigrant families and because of years of hard work and intellectual curiosity and study the families became middle class. Sure, Marxism is a fallacious solution. But the vileness of the “white” slur is no better than the Bolshevist and National Socialist slurs of old. As long as people mick the collectivists (who gave them the false historical narrative from kindergarten onwards that they uncritically accept).

      People love to conform and be trendy. The “privilege” slurs are cool and trendy — and they are handcuffs. As long as one promotes the “white” slurs or any of the several “privilege” slurs they might as well join feminism (collectivism). At least in doing so they might learn something important about that ideology — more than many MRAs know now.

    Conclusion, Conservatives(the real ones) are long time dead. If so, why Chivalry still exists? If you hear a woman scream, you will see countless white knights jumping to help her. If you see a woman saying that she wants a man, you will see countless manginas jumping to pay for her attention, and belittle themselves for some action. I wish Conservatism was dead, but it’s not. Feminists never wanted the old privileges to be gone, were protected instead, because without them Feminism would have no power. Men enable Feminism. Women demand, men provide.

    • Still Educating the Idiots

      Real Conservatives, & Real Conservatism, is not dead, and it never was. It was comprised of people (the overwhelming, vast majority of our country’s population) who were too busy leading productive lives — working for a living, playing ball with their children on the weekends, or taking their children to the zoo — you know, normal people, who didn’t feel the need to be professional protestors, complainers, and whiners, and above all, who didn’t have the compulsive need to tyrannically dictate to other people, how those people ought to think, feel, and run their own lives. What was once called the “Silent” Majority (hence, my observation, that they didn’t have as large, or as loud, of a bullhorn, as did (and do) the professional male-cow-dung-artists. You’ll see Real Conservatives soon enough, though, because we’re coming rapidly to the point, where they’ve HAD enough . . . remember the French Revolution?

    So the yardstick for “success” is attending a “prestigious” university and then rejecting men and marriage and children? Who would any child want their mother to be? Someone who loved them, valued them above all else, or a Type A executive who passes them off to daycare or a nanny? One funny thing is that this type of modern “culture” is already extinct. Europe will Islamic within a few generations due to the fact the “enlightened” Europeans forgot to have children to continue their wonderful society. Soon the “Patriarchy” and high birth rate, uneducated, third world cultures will rule in Europe and America and “feminism” will be a long forgotten footnote in history.

        Don’t you know that gays exist everywhere, and will not disappear because you sweep them under a rug? In Thailand there are unabashadly ladyboys everywhere. There are gays in conservative countries such as Indonesia and Iran. There are gays in US of A to boot. What is your issue?

    (1) So-called feminism which Mallory describes here is Marxism, with men being the oppressors and women being the oppressed.
    (2) At my university it was proposed to have a graduate program of Women’s Studies, with an M.A. I asked how there could be “Women’s Studies” without studying men, since the two sexes have to exist together.
    The Women’s Studies program at my university has fortunately been cancelled.
    (3) Those who really helped women are ignored. E,G., Coco Chanel, who changed fashion so that women’s clothes fit their bodies – away with corsets!, shortened skirts, allowed slacks to be worn by women, allowed women to wear sweaters instead of shawls. She was very successful, as her perfume Chanel No. 5 shows!

    I love Mallory Millett. She writes great stuff because she has lived so much of it. What a great article. I’ve been saying a lot of this for years, that these women have wanted to ruin the American family, and mostly the man. When they came along, the American male was weakened and castrated. I blame the women’s movement for so much, but mostly for destroying the great American nuclear family.

    • Ella Lohan

      I prefer a weakened and castrated American male to a macho
      Asian male who thinks he can do whatever the heck he wants to a woman. At least Americans ask for permission to do something, and don’t rape us in bed like Asian males.

      • Disgusted

        ” prefer a weakened and castrated male”

        Feminism in a nut-shell. (Pardon the pun.)

      • Eric

        But now, they do. What formerly was unrealized as being fertile ground for “rape culture” encroachment, is the heterosexual act of coitus, itself. Have you never heard of the requirement for “enthusiastic consent” and how if the man doesn’t have written evidence, then if charged he will be presumed to be a rapist?

  • Maynard

    Thanks for this great article, it is direly needed at this time.

  • RocketmanBob

    Kruschev said, “We will bury you.” That statement was freighted with the connotations that they would essentially win from within our own society, instead of from without, viz. open warfare between the two nations. And his front line troops were folks like Kate Millet and her cohorts in their academic cabal.

    They first concocted, and then legitimized and institutionalized this cancerous social revolution precisely to “bury” us as a society. Witness now the intolerance for any who don’t conform to their dogma.

    Thanks for having the courage to speak our Mallory.

    Society needs to get a grip and stop letting this leftist communist cultural Marxism propagating naive genrations that is underhandedly planning the demise of our society. We like-minded people need to unite and fight back because if we sit and watch the family structure crumble, morals being discarded, deviances deemed as “normal” or let the Islamic killing people, this all will open a floodgate to a catastrophic end to civilization. Just look at the Roman Empire. History repeats itself if we do not learn from the past mistakes. It will not get better.

    What about those of us in our 50s and 60s who did not drink the Kool-Aid yet are still alone because too many men eithe drank it or were afraid of women because of the women’s movement. We wanted husbands, homes, and children, but were denied it because of the zeitgist of the women’s movement.

    Many thanks, Mallory, for your insightful and refreshingly honest article.

    My take: This issue needed to be a) brought up, and b) outed, as the ‘false flag’ that it was, and is. We are on our way to a healthier society, for this process. Methinks.

    This is how we learn lessons. Which is precisely what we are here for. Life being a school. The purpose of which is to graduate.

    My great grandmother who was born in 1890, used to say, “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
    Women have tremendous power; the power to bring life into the world and the power to destroy that life, whether inside or outside of the womb.
    Mothers shape the world they live in.

    Marxists were spot on when they took aim at women and the home.
    Universities may inculcate young women with this pernicious, Marxist ideology but character, strength, values, morals, and ideals are instilled in the home.
    Destroy that home and you spawn generations of aimless, vulnerable, impressionable young men and women, searching for something to believe in.
    Looking for strong father figures, that makes these young people ripe for the picking by slick talking, savvy male politicians who promise them stability, hope and change.

  • Sixties Survivor

    As I see it, the women’s liberation movement made some valuable contributions to society and to members of both sexes. It did so to the degree it promoted mutual respect between the sexes and recognition of the attributes we have in common as human beings. Like you, Barbara, I was more or less on the outskirts of the movement (I didn’t burn my bra, I just didn’t wear one for a couple years in the mid-seventies! I guess that was the hippie influence). Feminism was and is toxic to the extent it promotes the idea that women are victims of hopelessly chauvinistic men; it does this while claiming to support women’s empowerment. I’m glad the movement accomplished the two important goals you mentioned, as well as opening up more opportunities and choices for women–especially in terms of the roles they can take on in life, whether it be career woman, wife, mother, homemaker, or all of those. It’s too bad the movement’s leaders didn’t declare “mission accomplished” many years ago and then devote their considerable energy to finding ways to truly improve the lives of individuals. That wouldn’t be possible under the banner of Marxism, though, since Marxism promotes hatred, envy, irrationality and disunity.

  • disqus_J1nPptzpBs

    This article is just as big of an absurd as modern feminism, just from the opposite side.
    “Your books destroy lives” is no smarter than “public opinion forces women to marry and have children”.
    “Women are arbiters of the society” is no smarter than “all women are prostitutes”.
    Suggesting that women naturally want to be housekeepers is no smarter than stating that women naturally want to be sluts.
    Mourning about femininity beauty which is gone is no smarter than ostracizing women who want to look feminine and beautiful.
    Both sides view women as a group only, none wants to see all people as individuals. In reality, we are all individuals. There are female workaholics and stay-at-home dads. Or vise versa. How about abandoning gender stereotypes and seeing each person individually, whether a man or a woman.

  • sherrades

    I agree with most of this article but as a former leftie, I see that they have ignored the fact that we in the USA have neglected noticing what has happened with our men and the world’s men. Women allowed themselves to be passed around in the 60’s and got all kinds of diseases. The women have become overly responsible and are staying in situations of abuse more than ever by trying to manage the abusers like bad little people and the women working their butts off.. Look at Hillary. A huge ENABLER to an untreated sex addict . So many women chose abortions because they were afraid and in a hurry with no real answers for help. Can’t we evolve into learning how to help each other better? If we had advisors to help guide women who were pregnant into a better future for themselves and their child along, with the father, we would be evolving. Men , like Bill Clinton, should have admitted their problem and gotten treatment for abuse along with better parenting skills. Bill could have helped the men of the world if he would have been honest about his past and his addictions, like Betty Ford did with hers. Instead he stays with the University Lounge Philosophy of get the girls. Hillary could have helped all women if she would have taken her child out of the situation to help her in her future and she could have guided women like herself toward responsible treatment for better healthier families. What’s going on with the men? They don’t know their role anymore either, so how can anyone build a life. Why don’t we hold them responsible for getting 10 women pregnant and on welfare? Why are paying for men to jump on anyone they want with the payment of pills and abortions for them?
    I really wish Horowitz would mention and make a profound statement ,in his journals, how many men and women ,like himself, have left the left and their philosophy. Just look at the leftovers. They are the downtrodden, dirty haired, European wannabees who consider themselves intellectuals who only know how to create something that someone else already tried that didn’t work . All of their science and ideas are based on controlling people. Yeah, all drug and alcohol related philosophers who have only gained more partying and better legal drug partying. What have they accomplished? Oh you can get all of the drugs you want, have all of the sex you want and make everyone else pay for it, get a warm place to stay and have everyone else pay for it and party some more. They are all Enablers to build only on other’s weaknesses. Human beings will rise to what is expected of them. If we look at their strengths and their inside needs for respect, they will notice it too.

  • Atikva

    Your archaism and ignorance are pathetic. A successful woman is a content, fulfilled woman who arouses respect anywhere she goes – and the envy of many products of women’s lib, whatever their “careers”, the “prestigious” schools that indoctrinated them or the number of their abortions.

Norman debated my sister, Kate once at Town Hall in NYC. His pomposity was excruciatingly obnoxious

    Self-hating anti-Semitic NAIOMI WOLF is viciously anti-Israel and praises the beauty of the jihab! She is pro terrorist and opposes a country, Israel, which has women in the military, women in high office, women in the arts, beautiful feisty women. She is a feminazi who has allied herself with the very people who loathe her. And as much as I loathe him, Wolf’s article years ago about how Harold Bloome felt up her thigh when she was an undergrad reeked of narcissism and self-righteousness. It’s all about HER HER HER HER HER. She is your typical academic feminist,

We cannot allow a movement based on hatred and victimization to impose itself and indoctrinate impressionable young girls (and boys).

    Feminism has been one of the most divisive factors in modern times, pitting women against men, creating mistrust and even unbridled hatred.

  • Philip Schuster

    What started as a beautiful argument against 2nd wave feminism, and it’s Marxist roots, quickly turned into an apology for ultraconservative religious doctrines. I am very secular, I am pro-choice, and I am for gay rights, but I have no love for 2nd wave feminism and its anti-male agenda. This article left no room for such a position.

    • muzjik

      I went back to reread and am perplexed….what did you find to be “ultra-conservative, religious doctrine”? The mention of Adam and Eve? The quote from a priest?
      ????

      • Philip Schuster

        This is a conservative magazine. It mentioned abortion, homosexuality and sexual promiscuity with respect to feminism and communism. Of course, the heading has the slogan, “inside every liberal is a totalitarian screaming to get out”, so they make little distinction between liberals and totalitarian commies. Then there’s the whole thing about atheists and finally finding God. It has all the talking points of conservative religious propaganda about the culture wars.

        • muzjik

          Ahh…so you projected onto the article assumptions (the author’s mention of her faith journey = religious propaganda talking points) derived from your own antagonism toward conservatives and/or Christians?

          The mention of abortion, homosexuality and sexual promiscuity was a part of the account of the author’s direct observation of a meeting during the founding of NOW. Her sister was called ““the Karl Marx of the Women’s Movement.”

          Isn’t the correlation between liberal feminism and communism just a little bit warranted?

          • Philip Schuster

            For the last time, it’s not the connection between feminism and abortion, homosexuality & sexual promiscuity (actually free sexual expression) that makes this a piece of conservative propaganda. It’s the fact that these are seen as bad trends that are detroying the family, which is a common conservative “culture wars” meme. The thing that’s destroying the family is the gender hatred incited by feminism, but the article inserts these other issues into the discussion in order to slam a whole array of liberal positions.

          • muzjik

            And for the last time, if it is accurate that the feminist founders of NOW, including the author’s sister, identified the promotion of abortion, homosexuality and sexual promiscuity as the means to achieve their goal of destroying the nuclear family and, therefore, destroying the Patriarchy, then acknowledging that they achieved their purpose isn’t “conservative propaganda”. It’s a statement of fact.

        • Bluedrgn

          “It mentioned abortion, homosexuality and sexual promiscuity with respect to feminism and communism.”

          I would like to dismiss it as “right wing propaganda”, but I’ve seen a similar stories from too many people who were there and attended these gatherings.

          Modern, feminism is, at it’s heart, an ideology founded in Marxism, and it HAS promoted sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, etc, in pursuit of its goals.

          As a social libertarian, I might dispute that promiscuity and homosexuality are “bad”, but that doesn’t change that these things were promoted by feminism in their pursuit to destroy the traditional family… which was itself merely part of their plan to destroy “The Patriarchy”.

          • Philip Schuster

            The point is that the article takes the position that free sexual expression and homosexuality are bad and part of the culture wars to destroy society. It’s not just that they associate these things with feminism. That’s why it is right wing sanctimonious propaganda in addition to being anti-feminist. Free sexual expression and acceptance of gay relationships are not destroying the family the way they claim. The disruption of male-female relationships and the erosion of trust between the sexes due to feminist man-hating – not homosexuality or free sexual expression – are what’s destroying the family.

          • Atikva

            “Free sexual expression and acceptance of gay relationships are not destroying the family the way they claim”

            Come on, Mr. Schuster, whom do you think you are kidding?

          • Mallory Millett

            Only himself because it is a priori that promiscuity or “free sexual expression” as Mr Schuster calls it, always “disrupts male-female relationships and erodes trust between the sexes”. That’s why it’s so dangerous, hurtful and evil and only leaves a trail of broken hearts and psyches. Society has solid reasons for it’s rules. Mr Schuster is one of those who wants to break taboos without consequences and that is not possible. He will learn as these activities go on to ruin his life…..bit by bit.

        • Mallory Millett

      “Pro choice”… which one?
      The choice between “having sex” – or keeping one’s legs crossed?
      The choice between picking a responsible partner – or a looser?

      The choice between practicing contraception – or not bothering?
      The choice between killing the child – or putting him up for adoption?

      Why is killing the child the only choice worthy of your consideration?

    • Mallory Millett

      Let me get this straight. According to you, the writing of my own personal story and discoveries, although I don’t know you from Adam’s off-ox, is supposed to flatter and make room for your own particular wildly idiosyncratic positions and beliefs? Ladies and gentlemen, here we have before us a stunning example of the new post-modern utterly destroyed American Narcissistic male.

I mean for God sakes the title says “Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives” and to this day, modern feminism is being exposed for the mistake it really is.

        Roflmao. You think women didn’t have a voice before feminism!?! Your ignorance of history is common among feminists. It is sad that feminists try to hide strong women of history. But it’s not at all surprising. The survival of feminism is dependent of portraying women as an oppressed people. Can’t do that while acknowledging examples that prove otherwise.

    Dear ‘wife’ – I know what you mean about our sons not finding a nice girl – I have a son that has changed so much after graduating from college – he claims to be ‘Godless’ but I am hoping it is a phase – I sent him this article because he is going through the women so fast for his young life – I told him yesterday: ‘don’t die for a woman via STD’s’ – sex is just not worth it. I also said: bring back some mystery in your life – don’t be so quick to get involved or start up relationship. Hell, I don’t know – things just seem so pointless and wasteful nowadays.

    I read this with my heart pounding in my chest. This is precisely what I have been writing and blogging about this last two years when I finally put two and two together and saw what was happening. As a male witness of the times you talk about Mallory, I can attest to everything you say – and I speak from England.

    You have said it all, and with such elegance, and eloquence. I just hope people wake up to this angry, divisive and hate-filled creed that has worked in both of our societies, quietly but inexorably, like yeast in dough, for over four decades, and which has brought low the family, men – and women, if they could but see it as you do.

    Joseph McCarthy rooted out communists from American society in the 1950s, but no one saw how it came back in the 1960s, sugar coated with the label ‘liberation’ and, now, ‘equality’.

    These Marxists have brought American and British society low. It has all gone too far and have done done too much damage to people’s lives. Enough is enough. I write and blog about this entire catastrophe at http://herbertpurdy.com, and one of my most recent posts describes how they have infiltrated to the highest offices of state in Britain. http://herbertpurdy.com/?p=316

            I wonder what you think the world would be like had this “small circle” of women never existed? You have elevated them to a cosmic level of power. I think that is a mistake, understandable, perhaps, given your relationship, but a mistake nonetheless.

            And no matter what you say, you can’t justify blaming your sister and her friends for the horrific actions of mentally ill women who never heard of them. You must realize that mentally ill women were committing those types of acts before your sister and her friends ever existed.

            “This small circle of women”……..It was a small cadre of people who accomplished the Russian Revolution. A very small group of brown-shirts exploded the Nazi bomb through Europe. This is how it works. Pol Pots gang was a tiny proportion of the population. I watched as these women concocted their agenda and then distributed the Women’s Studies throughout the land. With utter horror I watched as it transformed the entire culture. This is the nature of this type of poison…..like a virus spread my one minuscule piece of infestation can bring down the entire body. Voila! We have King Obama ascending the throne whilst Valerie Jarrett proceeds to run the country along with Queen Michele.
            Another thing which you may not know is that sister Kate and her whacko minions along with Simone de Bouvier concocted the Iranian Recolution in 1979 and now we have what we have. The Ayatollah hijacked their plan for Iran to be the great test tube of Marxism and you had one bewildered little band crouched in their salons on The Left Bank of Paris asking themselves,”Wha’ happened????”

    • Mallory Millett

      Their own personal societal positions, leanings, or personal beliefs are immaterial in my essay. The point is that whatever their affiliations they now dwell in a societal stew in which human life, particularly that of fetuses, infants or babies has been so degraded and cheapened that women now have the thumbs up or down power of the Roman Circus.
      If a child is deemed inconvenient for any reason by the all-powerful woman it’s disposal is allowed. Institutionalized infanticide lessens the value of all human life. All women who murder their young, by definition. are insane…..clearly not in tune with their purpose and nature. And their take-over of society has made us all a little crazy.

    The FSSPX priests are in schism and do not confect valid sacraments. This priest has gone way overboard. Orthodoxy is re-emerging. You can see it in the California dioceses of San Francisco, Santa Rosa and Oakland where new bishops are beginning to bring Catholic schools back into line.

    • Bigg Dee

      Your first statement is wrong. The SSPX is in an irregular canonical situation, but they are not in schism and the priests do offer valid Masses. There is debate on the Sacrament of Confession and I do not have time or space to elucidate the debate here. Andthe priest mentioned is not in the SSPX. What kind of Orthodoxy can the committed, devout Catholic find at the average parish in No.Cal? The teachers at the “Catholic” schools recoiled in terror at the expectations they follow Catholic teaching in contract agreements.

      • Joseph P. Martino

        Don’t confuse the SSPX with the FSSP. The Fraternal Society of St. Peter is fully orthodox and a legitimate order, which runs parishes where the Tridentine Mass is said daily and Sunday. I attend an FSSP parish, in a church given to our congregation by the local Bishop.

    This happened to our family. Our mother walked out on 4 children and a husband who had returned from the hospital after having a tumor the size of a tennis ball removed from the base of his brain. She moved the furniture out the same day with her new boyfriend. He was sitting in the kitchen still in his hospital gown with his head bandaged. She took the dressers, but left him the bed.

    I chose an unusual path to become a devout member of a traditional faith, marry when I was 23, graduate from college, and go on to have 7 children. This while all my friends in Silicon valley had kids stashed in daycare but were earning huge bonuses at tech companies.

    There were tumbleweeds in the cul-de-sacs during the day. It was only me, the children, the retired guy across the street, and the mentally ill woman a few houses down. Everyone else was doing “real” work. Remember when Obama sycophant squawked: “Ann Romney’s never worked a day in her life”? That was my status too.

    Then when I was 40, Time Magazine ran a cover with 3 women, all my age, that said: “We’ve made a mistake, chasing our careers, and ignoring getting married and having families…now it’s too late.” That could have been me had I listened to the prevailing wisdom.

    Now I have 2 granddaughters who are the joy of my life. But I do have a daughter who chose to go to a state school, and she is quite lost, telling me that the world is overpopulated and she won’t have children. My feminist sister-in-law is 67 alone, no children, and a hoarder. It’s all true,

      If it weren’t for feminism, you ladies on this site wouldn’t even have a voice to publish your anti-feminism views now, would you?

      Are you truly ignorant enough to believe that? Women didn’t need feminism to go to college, get published, work outside the home, or whatever. Nothing was stopping them but their own desire and preference for family life — which is precisely why that is exactly what feminism sought to destroy, as explained quite clearly in the article above.

    • Brutus974

      It seems you’re confusing the equal rights and woman’s suffrage movements movements of last century with today’s modern “feminism.”

      As we all know (even you, I suspect), today’s modern feminist movement has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not women are allowed to post on an internet forum.

  • Ella Lohan

    At least my parents weren’t forced into a marriage which wasn’t even working for them. I can’t say I was destroyed by it either. I still went to college and traveled the world, so hey.

    • Emahray Trolle

    I’m feminist, and am very happy that I know I don’t have to depend on a man for everything. My status doesn’t depend on a man, it depends on me and my hard work. In other countries unfortunately it all depends on the family name you’re forced to marry with.

    • Eric

      Eminently commendable; however, that is merely nature’s backup plan.

    Would you prefer that a single mother be left alone and destitute? There is an entire population of women and children in Indonesia who are like that because there is no welfare program, and many many uneducated children as a result. Think before you judge.

    • Mallory Millett

      Why is she a single mother?…meaning that she made THE CHOICE of indulging in promiscuity, got pregnant out-of-wedlock and ended up stranded by an unworthy man with whom she should not have consorted in the first place.
      It is all about CHOICE! And here are the choices. Should I have free-for-all sexual activity with any old guy who shows up at the door? Are my random orgasms the be-all-and-end-all of my day? Maybe I need to stop thinking of my body as an amusement park and various men as tools to be used for my own personal pleasure. Or perhaps the better choice is to handle myself with the dignity appropriate to one who carries the organs which create another whole human life and all the responsibility, joys and sorrows and complications implicit in such a blessing.
      Here’s the real choice scenario. You CHOOSE a deserving man; you spend a great deal of time getting to know each other; you meet each other’s family; you CHOOSE a date; you marry before your friends and family; and then you have a child with the consideration that person deserves upon coming into this extremely difficult exercise called LIFE!!

    • Eric

      Why reach for Indonesia? The example given was for a community here in the U.S.A. Why hot cite an American example.

      Because, you can’t. You, like all feminists, divert the subject or its locus, when any semblance of a valid issue is raised by others.

  • Ella Lohan

    Don’t you know that the Bible says “thou shalt not judge” before you insult someone like that? A woman’s worth is not dependent on her hymen, either.

      Ella, aside from your hymen gazing, your post reals of paranoia weaned from stupidity.

      However, stupidity and obtuseness aside I will clarify in a dumbed down obamaesque manner fools like you can only understand.

      Sharon is an affirmed socialist who, gutless and brainless like you deleted her post advocating Socialism for The USA. The derogatory term used in asking if she is one and the same that the author describes in her story was used in quotation of said author.

      If your feminist skin is as thin as your paranoia suggests, I would advise estrogen or testosterone therapy, whichever your hymen prefers.

      A primer on reading comprehension wouldn’t hurt you either.

    • Mallory Millett

      A woman’s worth is dependent upon the self-respect with which she conducts herself. Period!

  • Ella Lohan

    That has everything to do with culture, not with the procedure itself.

  • Ella Lohan

    Monogamy has always been destroyed among men. Men have traditionally taken on more than 1 lover, even in traditional European society. Ironically it’s feminism that has made the cultural change to divorce from cheating men.

    • georgetrue

      Not really. It was enlightened modern civilization – which had nothing to do with so-called feminism.

  • PeterPan

    incredible, it seems Feminism is for equality as Nazis are for Peace. For instance the quote for the C level positions, what kind of person can’t noticed this as privilege of one gender. The divorce no-fault laws which clearly benefit the woman. There is so much more….

  • PlainOldTruth

    Thank you. Far to many writers who criticize feminism devote endless energy to censoring the facts of feminism and its larger agenda. When critics complain that MRAs (Men’s Rights Advocates) are “blaming women” for everything it is true — but true only for those who struggle to deny and cover up the utopianist collectivist methods and goals of the anti-“patriarchy” philosophy. Feminism is most certainly a cult in the broader sense of the term and its perpetuation relies on fanaticism and zealotry — and above all, in censorship of facts.

    It has to be realized that the ill-informed, shallow criticism that ignores feminism’s actual and discoverable ideology (and the coercive unethical and corrupt institutional fostering of that ideology) by men (including poorly-informed MRAs) who see the problem merely being opportunistic “mean girls” and gynocentrisam (which is an important issue up to a point) are the blind leading the blind. Articles like this are thus valuable and we need more of them. Many more.

      “When critics complain that MRAs (Men’s Rights Advocates) are “blaming women” for everything it is true — but true only for those who struggle to deny and cover up the utopianist collectivist methods and goals of the anti-“patriarchy” philosophy”

      I don’t think this is true anymore. It has been squarely recognized. You should get an update on this one.

      For naive minded and well intended people not familiar with those “utopianist collectivist methods” usually using and abusing values, shifting meanings, doublespeak, false accusations, feigning victimhood etc. it maybe hard to grasp that there are actually individuals out there doing this deliberately.

  • Sharon Stewart

    I am pretty damn old and was a feminist long before these second-wave feminists took up the pen. My mom (truly ancient) was a feminist before me. In fact, she was an Anglican priest. I grew up in a huge, egalitarian family: the boys and the girls did everything (dishes, laundry, snow shovelling, cooking, baking, ironing, vacuuming, lawn mowing, floor washing, etc.). We had no experience of sexism. I didn’t experience any sexism until after spending 9 years in university (where I was the only woman in my class) and getting my first full-time job. I ran into sexism right away: men with no experience starting in the same position as I was but earning 66% more money. My idea of feminism is simply men and women being treated with equal respect and being given equal opportunities, just how I was brought up from infancy. No man-hating needed.

    • ShlomoShunn

    It is worth noting that it has become fashionable for some (very dishonest) collectivist control-freaks to hide behind the label of “classical liberal,” a device that exploits the ignorance of the historically illiterate public. Before anything else the classical liberal recognizes that top-down power bureaucracies (whether monarchial, religious, or state collectivist) — despite the presence of phony trappings of rigged “democratic” voting systems that exploit a propagandized and increasingly ill-educated (by the state appartus!) public — is anathema to liberty.

  • soliel67

    I agree except not all women who don’t have children are that way because they are ardent feminists. Some are very feminine but just didn’t go that route. They show their femininity in other ways.

    For crying out loud, this doesn’t ring true of any sane person who has taken a women’s studies class or participated in feminist gatherings at all. And the reference to the Cultural Revolution as promoting homosexuality, promiscuity, etc. is historically inaccurate, and quite frankly the wording of the account is a little pat. From Wikipedia: “The denial of the ideals of the Cultural Revolution, during which sex was used as a political tool for the control of the people, is an influential factor in making changes in Chinese society.[3] During the Cultural Revolution, individual sexual preferences were supposed to give way to lofty revolutionary ideals. Extramarital affairs were portrayed as a derogatory lifestyle, and pre-marital sex was immoral. Homosexuality was illegal and would be punished under the statutes for hooliganism. A person had to be sexually well-behaved in order to get a promotion or advance in his or her career.[4]”

    As Twain once quipped ,”It’s easier to fool the people, than to convince them they’ve been fooled”….these well TRAINED women will die having rejected almost all aspects of their own true nature. The maternal clock that ticks for even the most hardcore feminist also marks the end of the line for what could have been their reversal of this indoctrination. Very sad!

    Much of this truth is painful; over the years I’ve pondered the so very many broken, shattered lives (women and men and girls and boys) over the years of this monstrosity of a movement, and this brave author works to purge some of the sickness. I wish to thank her immensely.

    “Thus, the females, who are fundamentally the arbiters of society go
    on to harden their young men with such pillow-talk in the same way
    they’ve been hardened because, “Wow, man, I’ve gotta get laid and she
    won’t do it if I don’t agree to let her kill the kid if she gets
    knocked-up!” Oppressed? Woman has always had power. Consider the eternal
    paradigm: only after Eve convinced Adam to eat the fruit did mankind
    fall. I.e., man does anything to make woman happy, even if it’s in
    defiance of God. There’s power for ya! Without a decent womankind,
    mankind is lost. As Mae West said, “When women go wrong men go right
    after them!””

    The ultimate arbiters of morality are men. It is men who invented patriarchy and hence civilization and its men and women who enforce it.

    By enforcing sexual law and order men were motivated to produce surplus wealth for their families due to guarantee of paternity. Delegating that role to women in the victorian era was a mistake.

    Oh
    look, an article that just talks trash about a group of people that the
    author doesn’t understand. this coming from a site that conflates leftists with liberals.

    protip: liberals are right of center capitalists. the majority of today’s feminists are liberal, and it’s pretty obvious that they don’t talk about class warfare. they’re too interested in creating illusions about rape culture and victimhood.

    all you need to know is that the author
    thinks churchill was a swell guy. he doesn’t point out that churchill was
    a rabid zionist and made a racist quote about native americans.

    “Socialism is a philosophy of failure…”

    well maybe it failed because churchill and the ruling class that he worked for made sure to murder communists.

    churchill uses jews to talk shit about communists, then declares that a jewish dominated palestine has royal backing. check out the newspaper article “Zionism vs. Bolshevism: The Struggle For the Soul of the Jewish People” Sunday Herald, February 8, 1920.

    i’m fairly certain that if you’re reading this article, and you actually believe the author, that mao won the cold war by taking over “our” women… You are one seriously deluded whackrat.

    • georgetrue

      I am an actual spelunker – one who explores caves. But I digress.

      It is apparent that the author understands this group of people all too well.

      Churchill was, in fact, a fairly swell guy, at least in the ways that it mattered the most. He understood the various forms of totalitarianism for the evil that they truly are. Whether it is called socialism, National Socialism (Nazi), Communism, or Fascism, he understood that they are all of the left – a cancer that ravages a healthy society and culture. He also understood that Islam is “the most retrograde force in the modern world”.

      You say Churchill “recognized Zionism”. I say that he recognized that Judea is in fact the ancestral homeland of the Jews. Knowing history, he also understood that the Israelis have a much more valid claim on that piece of real estate than any group of so-called Palestinians (they are actually Jordanians).

      You are welcome for the history lesson.

    Feminism in ancient Sparta

    Feminism is not a modern invention, as many suppose. It existed in
    the ancient world—and its consequences were largely the same as now. A
    classic example is the Greek city-state of Sparta.

    Feminism and the fall of Rome

    Feminism is not a new thing. Neither is it a sign of progress, as
    some imagine. It has flourished in the past with results as disastrous
    as presently. Many parallels exist between the feminist movement in the
    Roman Empire and the feminist movement of today. In the early days of
    the Republic, Rome was extremely patriarchal. The father, the Pater
    familias, held the power of life and death over his wife and children.

      Woman have brothers, sons, cousins, uncles, dads, nephews, grandpas and husbands who care deeply about them and want to empower them.

      Often the most pro woman feminists are men, as it should be. Similarly often the most pro men people are female, as it should be.

      Feminism, properly constructed is a great thing. The problem isn’t feminism, but negativity that masquerades as feminism.

    She doesn’t say that the Chinese Cultural Revolution was about promiscuity–of course it wasn’t. She was merely quoting this idiotic and seriously dangerous group of NOW founders (specifically her sister) who referenced a cultural revolution (I don’t think they were talking about China and even if they were then they were the ones obviously wrong). Nor is she telling you that the people at feminist gatherings even know what they are promoting (we would call them “useful idiots”), but her description of Women’s Studies seems spot-on–how is that wrong?

    • Eric V. Kirk

      I understand what she’s saying, and I don’t believe her. I’ve been to a thousand of those meetings, even those run by Marxists. I’ve heard some pretty stupid stuff, but never anything like that. Not saying she’s lying, but memory is a very tricky thing as time passes, and I think there’s a bit of retroactive interpretation in those quotes. It’s a bit pat. And I really doubt that many marriages fell apart over books, though I’m sure it comforts the ex-husbands to think that way.

      • daized79

        Okay so I don’t know. But what she said appears verbatim and shocking. I would hope she wouldn’t lie.

        As to marriage. That’s probably not true. In some sense the husband wasn’t meeting his wife’s needs, but many women go through mid-life crises as much as many (and I think they start earlier because women get married earlier). How you deal with a mid-life crisis has everything to with your influences. So the husband may very well not have the tools or ability to meet his wife';s needs (especially of those “needs” are escaping the feeling of being trapped and chained to husband and children. I know this from personal experience with a number of marriages. In those marriages the woman ultimately stayed, but it was because of powerful good influences. So maybe a more mediocre husband would have prompted more exits. But influence and “freethinking” as the terms goes has alot to do with how a wife reacts to those feelings of being trapped that almost everyone has at one or more point sin a marriage.

        • Eric V. Kirk

          I’m not accusing her of lying. I don’t trust memory in general where political ideology is involved, and the mind is a really tricky thing. As someone who has taken depositions where two impartial witnesses have testimonies where you would think they were talking about two separate events – we’re talking almost 5 decades here. And there are a million reasons marriages break up, and probably the most common reason is that they shouldn’t have married to begin with. But the whole theme is undermined by the fact that divorce rates are actually higher in conservative “red” states and self-defined feminists do not divorce at significantly higher rates than women in general. I don’t credit feminism or liberalism for the lower divorce rates, at least not in terms of the impact of the ideology itself. I lean towards a correlative explanation – women in blue state culture tend to marry when they’re older. And I lean towards the argument that when you wait until you know more about what you want in life, you’re more likely to make the right choice about marriage. But she’s throwing out all kinds of anecdotes to support her argument, including, I think irresponsibly, the infanticides with no evidence whatsoever that any of those women ever so much as cracked a book on feminism let along took a woman’s studies class or participated in a feminist political action. The whole article actually reads to me like the college-age level feminist screeds she describes, and I’ve seen some pretty stupid stuff. But Barbara Ehrenreich is not Andrea Dworkin and very few feminists identify with the Cultural Revolution – almost none at this point. I do think feminism tends to overreach, and can stand some strong criticism. I don’t think this article contributes to the discussion in any kind of productive way. It seems more intended to rally the troops to battle, and that’s fine. Plenty of that comes from my side of the spectrum too. I was just hoping for a little more.

          • Mallory Millett

            Please refer to my reply some distance above where I refer to the societal stew created by these Marxists. One does not have to be a feminist or a Marxist to be infected by the overall epidemic of infanticide infecting our society. You don’t even have to know how to read . Do you not know that a small cadre, very small, generated and accomplished the entire Russian Revolution? Do you not know that a very small group of brown-shirts created the Nazi nightmare? Your ideas reflect a paucity of genuine education. You think you’re a philosopher but you have to have learned some things in order to speak informatively about ideas. I watched these women from these goals, discuss the outcome they desired from their actions and then observed the placing of these women’s studies classes throughout the nations schools and then, in great horror watched as the great imposter Obama ascended his throne informed by nothing but these concepts. Valerie Jarrett runs this country and she is a classic of the villains of whom I speak….she is their product as is Queen Michelle

          • daized79

            You gave me a lot to ponder–I am surely biased by my own ideologies. But I’m curious about those divorce statistics (unless by Red you mean commie and Blue you mean Classical Liberal :) — remind me again why red is Republican?). Where did you find that? You also need to factor in how many out-of-wedlock births there are–can’t have a divorce when nobody’s getting married.

          • Eric V. Kirk

            Here’s an article on the divorce statistics. Plenty more on Google. https://contemporaryfamilies.org/impact-of-conservative-protestantism-on-regional-divorce-rates/

            In current political discourse “red states” are the states which vote Republican and Blue vote Democratic. I’ve heard different explanations. Where they all seem to agree is that when color television arose the networks started to use red and blue color coded maps for their election coverage. Different networks apparently had different schemes. One network used the traditional European scheme making Democrat red and Republican states blue because red was associated with socialism and blue with conservatism in the symbols of the political movements. Another network always made the incumbent candidate state wins red and the challenger blue. And another one reversed the colors each election to avoid any bias issues should any arise. One story I heard, but can’t find any confirmation, is that Democrats complained about being designated red and associated with communism and that Republicans complained about being regarded as the “blue blood” party and so NBC went with Republican states as red and Democratic blue. Again, I can’t find any support for that.

            But where it apparently stuck was in 2000 when Tim Russert at NBC was looking up at the NBC map and referred to the Gore states as “blue states” and Bush’s as “red states.” Apparently it became universal and stuck after that.

    You are so indoctrinated and so wound up in your own mind that you wallow in missing the obvious. There are men”. There are women. They are all individuals. The fact remains that men are men and women are women. You are either under eighteen or you were raised by a feminist mother. Never forget that pesky Y chromosome…….very powerful that little Y. All I can say is that you have so much to learn…….it makes me weary to think of it.

    This EXACT thing happened to our father (killed him), and destroyed the lives of myself and 2 other brothers. I saw this article referenced at Ace of Spades. Started to read it and had to stop. It was so painful to read that it took me several days to finish the whole thing. So much just thrown away because of jealousy and envy.

    I have to comment on this.

    ” Her mother is a fool who allowed a man to enslave her into barbaric practices like monogamy and family life and motherhood, which is a waste of her talents. She mustn’t follow in her mother’s footsteps. That would be submitting to life as a mindless drone for some domineering man, the oppressor, ”

    In the first and second centuries, some Roman women had virtually the same sentiment and would become Christian virgins. The caveat was not that they were tricked by romantic love, but that they were entered into arranged marriages.

    The Christian virgins were the first feminists, because they chose the FREEDOM of not marrying and not being burdened with the practices and duties of being a Roman wife.

    Understanding this, it is interesting to note the irony as to how modern feminists view Christians, and how, 2000 years ago, freedom meant NOT marrying and today we have liberals and libertarians (as if there were any difference) proclaiming that freedom means allowing two men TO MARRY one another. .

    “Why are we here today?” she asked.
    “To make revolution,” they answered.
    “What kind of revolution?” she replied.
    “The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
    “And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
    “By destroying the American family!” they answered.
    “How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
    “By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
    “And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
    “By taking away his power!”
    “How do we do that?”
    “By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
    “How can we destroy monogamy?”

    “By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.

    Did it ever occur to any of these women that they are only a “slave to a man” if they choose to be? My mom was not a “slave” to my dad. My mother worked out of the home sometimes, and also at times stayed at home with us kids. I am thankful that I did not have to be bounced from one home to the other and used as a pawn in a game because my mom needed to go on a meaningless power trip to no where. I went to a liberal university and had all of the femi-nazi stuff pushed at me both by men and women who were course instructors or professors, so I am not clueless about this hardcore, man-hating mentality.

    As I child I had the security of having a mother and father who nurtured and loved me and my siblings. Did they do it perfectly? No, but no person ever will. Healthy marriages allow for changes in the couple. Maybe she started out wanting to have career and work, but she changed her mind after having their first child….been there! So “destroying the family”, how is that working for you? How many walking wounded adults are out there now because of the divorce trend that shattered the security of family in their childhood? Yeah, it happened to some of my parents’ friends and the damaged children are my friends. How many people today still enter marriage with the “lease w/the option to buy” mentality? Married three and four times and wondering why they cannot make it work? Yes, a good friend is dealing with that crisis now. How many women are left emotionally damaged and broken after meaningless sex with multiple partners as the body’s natural response it to emotionally bond through intimate contact (see oxytocin)? I have yet to ever hear any who waited to have sex in the confines of marriage ever regret that move, but conversely, I have many a friend who wished she had waited. So as a byproduct of the promoted promiscuity, how many men and women have turned to porn because intimacy is beyond their respective grasp in the physical world?

    Although I am male, I took a women’s studies course in college. It was either that or one of the other “studies” courses, e.g., african american studies, minority studies, etc. I was interested in none of them, but the college made us take one of them as a requirement for graduation, and it was the women’s studies course that fit my course schedule. Having no idea ahead of time what to expect, I was simply curious as to what the course would be about. As it went along, I found myself agreeing with none of it, but at only age 18, a freshman in college, I did not yet know how to articulately speak out against it. We had to read articles portraying men as domineering patriarchs who were culturally conditioned to keep women subordinate. That was basically the theme of the course, that western civilization had conditioned men to keep women subordinate and conditioned women to accept it and be happy with their subordination. …and, of course, the feminist movement was needed to snap society out of its stupor and rid itself of the culturally engrained patterns. I guess I didn’t know that a happy, intact family was “subordination.” I guess I didn’t realize that falling in love with my girlfriend and wanting to marry her was my evil nature exhibiting itself as the domineering patriarch. Feminism… what the ???? What folly this ideology hath wrought. Thank you, Mallory Millet for speaking so plainly and openly about it.

  • Mallory Millett

    I think you have put it is wisely with the exception of keeping feminism in the equation. If what you describe in your last sentence is being practiced feminism is irrelevant. You have a woman and a man doing the dance that God set them here to do.and that’s the purpose of the design. You don’t need feminism because you have love and beauty and cooperation and empathy and generosity and harmony and that makes the world good. It’s so much simpler than it is complicated.

  • Mallory Millett

    The sound you hear is my deafening applause. I’m clapping my brains out because your passion and grasp on the truth about life is exquisitely thrilling. I’m thankful that my writing this elicited that from you so that I could sleep really well tonight just knowing that you and many others like you are out there. Thank you! God love you!!

  • Emilio Lizardo

    If there were any question that Feminism is simply the brand name of gender Marxism, it should be dead and buried right here. The Feminist hydra has many heads to hide behind, but it is but one beast where in beats the heart of Mao and Karl, Lenin and Stalin.

  • Mallory Millett

    Happy, are we? There’s a word for you. Sociopath is what describes your unfortunate state. You, very clearly, know not the difference between right and wrong. You possess no conscience and it’s obvious you have no empathy for the lonely souls you use for your own manipulations. I suspect your mother dumped tender little you with strangers whilst she pursued her own pleasures/ambitions and our unlucky world was saddled with yet another unbonded baby crashing about life without a care for the wreckage he leaves behind. Sociopaths end up only one of three ways: suicide; murdered; or a murderer punished by death or a life of imprisonment. Rock on, lady killer………bit by bit your doom will emerge and you will be left thinking, “Wha’ hoppin’???” Shows you it isn’t only women this movement has ruined. It is saddening that you will never know the bliss of LOVE.

  • beastlet

    I agree with most of your article, but to be pedantic the woman who drowned her 5 kids in the bathtub was clearly psychotic at the time. I watched the videos of her arrest and she was emaciated, unkempt with long filthy hair that hadn’t been washed in weeks and in filthy clothes. She looked like the typical unmedicated schizophrenic. The blame there was on her husband who didn’t do anything about her obvious post-partum psychosis and instead kept leaving his obviously severely mentally ill wife home alone with all those children. This was definitely a different crime than that perpetrated by Casey Anthony, Susan Smith or Meagan Work.

    • Mallory Millett

      My contention, along with a number of other commentators, including David Horowitz, Ann Coulter, Jamie Glazov and many many others, is that Marxism and plain ole’ Liberalism are generally embraced by people who are mentally off. I’ve rarely known a person of the Left who wasn’t gripped by some form of mental illness or delusionary perception. The woman of whom we’re speaking grew up in a culture that had been skewed by the feminists and, as I have purported in other comments on this site, you don’t have to be a feminist or an avowed Lefty or even literate to be poisoned by the anti-child culture with which America has been infected. This woman committed infanticide because she was festering in an infanticidal world. Don’t you think that any woman who murders her child is, by that very fact, whether that child is prebirth or post partum, necessarily performing an insane act. Sure, she was nuts. She killed her five children. You imply that it’s possible for a sane woman to do such a thing. I say, “no way, baby, no way”. The feminists have led women down the road to crazy. Singer, who presides over the Ethics Department at a major University, teaches that parents ought to be able to murder their child up to the age of two. This is the climate that women are inhabiting and they don’t necessarily have to be aware of the philosophical discussions or the dialogue of society in general to be infected with the madness.

      • beastlet

        I disagree in this case. Equating the callous disregard for life that liberals have with true mental illness cheapens the argument and makes people tune out. I agree 100% that our culture is responsible for Susan Smith, Meagan Work, Casey Anthony and all the women I see on a daily basis who put themselves ahead of their children, even though they don’t outright do anything you’d call abuse.

        Watch video of that woman right after arrest. She looks like the homeless schizophrenics who wander the streets of inner cities. She looks so deranged I can’t believe her husband would have left her alone by herself, forget with a bunch of little kids. I’m a physician and have rarely seen even schizophrenics off their medication look that bad. People that are psychotic have no connection with reality.

        I also doubt a married couple, that were very religious, with 5 kids, the oldest ones which were homeschooled were liberals, as well.

    • Mallory Millett

      Dear Doctor, I still suspect that had this happened in 1955 this seriously schizophrenic woman may have killed her husband or herself, set her hair on fire or burned the house down. I am, in no way, claiming her to be a Liberal or the like. My point is that the degradation of the value of human life by the Feminists, Liberals, etc has infested society in such a way that even illiterates and utterly apolitical people are committing infanticide when in earlier times they would not. The Feminists have created a “War on Babies” which has ballooned to enormous proportions. Also, I repeat…anyone who kills his/her own child is CRAZY!!! You seem to believe that there is a sane way to destroy one’s off-spring. Perhaps you, too, have been infected with a careless nonchalance regarding the sanctity of human life. No sane person kills their son or daughter. There are degrees and degrees but, come on……it’s inhuman to do such a thing.

  • Mallory Millett

    Thank you for this very important statement. I will pass your words on to David and others. Very pithy food for thought…..all so true. What a mess we’ve made here, no? And these phony people keep patting themselves on their backs and claiming to be LIBERATORS. Enraging!!!

  • Cobalt

    No it didn’t, there were many women authors as soon as those printing presses got going. Prior to French Revolution there were many powerful women in church.

    Feminists are the biggest silencers of women. They co-opt all women’s voices world wide. Governments implement their policies and ideas without any of the rest of us having a say.

    Feminists do NOT SPEAK FOR ME!

    I object to their pretence that they do…

  • Cobalt

    But your sons don’t have equal rights. Because of their gender they have decreased life expectancy, higher rates of suicide, no right to genital integrity. If they are raped by a woman, this is not counted in criminal statistics. If they were to commit the same crime as your daughters, they would serve much longer sentence. If a girlfriend or wife decided to falsly accuse them of rape, they could be convicted and jailed without any evidence. In California they would need to collect evidence that every single act during lovemaking was specifically and verbally agreed to or else they would be rapists.

    So there is no equality between women and men.

    • Jerri Jones

      I do find what you say to be true and trust me I’m crazed about it. More Feminist rhetoric that has been deployed to destroy the USA. I have found that I indeed have to worry more about my Sons now. Which is why I have always attempted to teach them to protect themselves. I will stand with you any day for that cause. This is just one of the many hypocritical aspects of gender politics of Feminists.

    for discomfort…tight jeans, etc….tight sweaters, all those
    stereotypical items of clothing that is essential troll bait for the

    .I will go one step further….it is my opinion then
    “feminism” all those ugly and fat woman ok, sorry, unattractive woman)
    started the movement of feminism to attract all those unattractive woman
    that would DIE for a man to give on iota of attention….

    Just to point out that nobody here seems to have read even one page of Marx. C´mon, even that Rand chick must have read something of him. What does Feminism have to do with Marx? Absolutely nothing. Marx was a social scientist dedicated to investigate Political Economy (what we call today “economics”), and as such excelled, by pointing how our economic system works. We understand capitalism thanks to him (and countless others since). You can be for, you can be against, but he did the job, and did it well. Now, which system we would want for a society in the future, that´s our job.
