So, aside from lowering standards to the point where Lena Dunham is considered smart and pretty, what has Feminism achieved?
The feminization of our politics has brought about the unsustainable welfare state; whose crowning achievement is Obamacare, a program championed by a Feminist Speaker of the House and implemented by a Feminist Secretary of Health and Human Services.
American Colleges are well on the way to becoming puritanical matriarchies. Already overwhelmingly female, new laws are being worked that will define virtually all sex as rape, and there are efforts underway to make it mandaory to expel males who are merely accused of rape. Rape itself is being redefined to include the circumstance of a woman changing her mind after consenting to sex with a man, with no statute of limitations.
The foregoing may be an effort for women to reclaim through legalism what they lost in the sexual revolution; control over the sex. The culture of single parenthood and permanently single women is a consequence of men no longer needing to commit to a woman in order to receive sex. [Insert metaphor regarding the logic of purchasing the bovine when its lactic emissions are gratuitously available.]
At one point, Feminists assailed pronography as demeaning to women. Now, it’s hailed as empowerment when a Womyn’s Studies Major at Duke University (Annual Tuition: $40,000) makes pr0n. [The coed in question claims it’s the Patriarchy’s fault because she doesn’t get enough financial aid; never mind she was offered a full-ride (no pun intended) at another university.)
Social Conservatives get knocked around a lot for believing that motherhood and family give women more dignity than pr0n careers, for believing that men should commit to their women and women to their men and both should commit to their families; for believing that empowerment comes through strength of character and self-reliance, not by performing lewd acts for the sexual gratification of strangers. Given the alternative, it should be conceded that social conservatives have a point.
