Feminist reformation in under 100 words

November 22, 2010

T.S. Elliot once said that there is no revolution that – at some point in time can last without experiencing a new reformation.

And with that, I read this quote from Sarah Palin – linked at “The Other McCain” and realized it was a much more concise explanation for why – in the 1990’s I realized what a bunch of hooey I had fallen for over the prior 10 years.

“The women’s movement used to be about honoring for women the same God-given rights that our country honored for men. It used to be about dignity and hope. It used to be about respecting women by respecting their choices — whether it is to be a nuclear engineer or a stay-at-home mom — not denigrating them when they aren’t sufficiently like men. And it used to be about respecting women’s unique role in creating and sustaining life.”

It’s about time that feminism stops being defined by narrow minded, hateful, spiteful self destructive, self hating women. If they loved themselves as women, they’d celebrate what makes them women – instead of doing everything they possibly can to crush it or deny what makes them unique.

    are liberal style feminists still around? shoot I never hear about ’em anymore. seems to me we’re the favored sex now, and get away with just about anything, while the men are the poor schlubs that just have to put up with it.
