    a. Feminism has been criticized as exhibiting a rigid intolerance which, unfortunately, has driven away women who choose motherhood over high-powered careers, women who are American patriots, many religious women, women who do not identify themselves primarily in terms of sexual preference, and women who oppose abortion, pornography and prostitution. Said outside-the-mainstream feminists hold abolitionist views about pornography, prostitution, trafficking, and sexual slavery; viewing males as partners rather than oppressors; in short, are conservative.

    b. Support for these excluded but self-identified feminists has come from an unexpected precinct: author of ‘Third Wave Feminism,” Rebecca Walker.
    Her mother is Alice Walker, Second Wave Feminist, and author of “The Color Purple.”

    According to Alice, her mother’s absolutist presumptions about male oppression, and the burden of having children, alienated her, and produced the kind of atmosphere which can only be considered child abuse.

    c. Read the article which includes…
    “The truth is that I very nearly missed out on becoming a mother - thanks to being brought up by a rabid feminist who thought motherhood was about the worst thing that could happen to a woman.
    You see, my mum taught me that children enslave women. I grew up believing that children are millstones around your neck, and the idea that motherhood can make you blissfully happy is a complete fairytale.

    I was raised to believe that women need men like a fish needs a bicycle. But I strongly feel children need two parents…

    But I honestly believe it's time to puncture the myth and to reveal what life was really like to grow up as a child of the feminist revolution….with my mother's knowledge, started having sex at 13. I guess it was a relief for my mother as it meant I was less demanding. And she felt that being sexually active was empowering for me because it meant I was in control of my body.

    The ease with which people can get divorced these days doesn't take into account the toll on children. That's all part of the unfinished business of feminism….Feminism has betrayed an entire generation of women into childlessness. It is devastating.

    I am my own woman and I have discovered what really matters - a happy family.”

    Did you have a point, other than that you can't find and keep a man?

    Feminism has ruined countless lives.
    As with all ideals...there are good things and bad things - American feminism expanded the bad things and only marginally effected success in the good things.

    I agree.....


    They are also a bunch of hypoctites.
    Why do you not hear them out in the streets protesting they way that SOME muslim women are treated by the men in their lives?
    Why are'nt they happy to see women rising in politics (all be it not their ideology) no matter which side they are on....? They are still women empowering themselves to stand up against the establishment.

    This is a woman in a great deal of pain. I think it is unfair to judge either her or her mother...we never know the truth of what goes on behind closed doors, and even if we did, doubtless for these two, there are two different truths. Mebbe Alice Walker is the horrible person her daughter describes....mebbe there is more to it...but whatever the case, feminism ain't the problem. Sounds to me like selfishness is.

    I'm not sure about "only marginally effected success in the good things" but I certainly agree with you about where it has gone wrong.

    And Alice Walker, still a feminist with convictions, spotlights a major problem: dissolution of family structure.

    Further, the joined-at-the-hip accommodations with political liberalism has blunted much of the good that could have been done.

    Given the aspiration to remake humanity, based on the mistaken belief that there are not differences between the sexes, the movement must be totalitarian.
    a. Gender equality requires an assault on hierarchies.
    b. The enormous increase in government that would be needed to produce the changes in humanity has to obliterate the boundaries between public and private, and between the emotional and the intellectual.
    c. The result must, of course, be anti-bourgeois, anti-capitalist, anti-family, anti- religion, and anti-intellectual.

    No doubt about the selfishness exhibited by mother Alice, but I doubt that you are ready to agree that
    1. Children are a burden to be avoided at all costs...(see article in OP)

    2. Women should never be allowed to choose family over career.

    a. Logical as it seems that women should be prepared for events such as divorce and widowhood, marriage and family may reduce opportunities for outside work or education. But the solution, according to Simone de Beauvoir in an interview with Betty Friedan is “No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.” “Sex, Society, and the Female Dilemma,” Saturday Review, June 14, 1975, p. 18.

    b. Like all totalitarian movements, the goal is not to give more freedom, but to take away choice.

    3. Radical feminism proceeds from “a doctrine of original sin: The world’s evils originate in male supremacy.” Patai and Koertge, “Professing Feminism: Cautionary Tales from the Strange World of Women’s Studies,” p. 183

    4. “Sex” is merely biological while “gender” refers to roles. Radical Feminists claim roles to be ‘socially constructed,’ which means that everything about men and women, sans organs of reproduction, can be altered by changes in the social and cultural environment.

    a. This view attacks not only men, but institutions responsible for the oppression, such as the family, and traditional religion.

    b. Those familiar with the Port Huron Statement of the Sixties radicals with understand the concept that human nature is infinitely malleable and therefore infinitely perfectible. Port Huron Statement of the Students for a Democratic Society, 1962

    These are some of the major tenets of said fanatical feminism...

    if you disagree with the above, then "...feminism [is] the problem."

    How dumb can you be?

    At least get your prejudice right: it's gook, not chink.

    Got it, dummy?
