Kate O’Beirne with her book, Women Who Make the World Worse, opened a floodgate. Actually, she did not fire the first salvo. The failure of the feminist agenda has become more and more apparent as the decades since the 70s have slipped by, and those failures have been documented and commented on before. But it seems that Mrs. O’Beirne’s book coincided with a tipping point in American culture; that point at which feminism is no longer regarded as admirable, because everyone can smell how rotten the bad fruit of the feminist philosophy is. And we all know what kind of a tree produces bad fruit.
Soon Mike Adams was posting his Why I can’t take feminists seriously articles (scroll down for links to all seven in the series, and the adendums here and here). But that was last month. Now the articles are coming out fast and furiously. Carey Roberts documents the feminists’ anti-kid crusade. No, not the one where they murder their children before they are born. The one where they deprive their children of their fathers by divorcing them, and then work overtime to restrict the access of the fathers to their children. That anti-kid crusade. Not satisfied with destroying said children by forcing them to shuttle between two houses, the feminists push to get custody reduced to joint custody, and joint custody reduced to visitation — for the dads.
Jennifer Roback Morse picks up the feminist-bashing stick admirably. She is the type of woman the feminists love to hold up as an example of real achievement: doctorate in economics, professor at Yale and George Mason University (extra points for being a member of academia), best-selling author. But then she left her job to :: gasp! :: stay home and raise her children! Which completely disqualifies her as an example for young women to follow, according to the feminists. Mrs. Morse rebuts the misrepresentations of the feminist Good Morning America trotted out recently for two days of coverage on the “mommy wars.” Oh, didn’t you know there was a war on between mommies, with mommies who work outside the home on one side, and mommies who work inside the home on the other? I don’t think there really is a mommy war, it is all a made-up conflict invented by feminists and their cohorts in the media to give themselves something to talk about.
Doug Giles then takes the feminist-derision on an interesting new twist: a parenting series titled Raising boys that feminists will hate. Love the title. Here is a snippet from the first in the series, published Friday:
“Parent, if you have a young son and you want him to grow up to be a man, then you need to keep him away from pop culture, public school and a lot of Nancy Boy churches.”
Sounds promising. And W. Thomas Smith, Jr. ends our feminist-bashing round-up with this message of hope: American manhood will prevail. I just want to say, thank God for it. No one knows how precious a gift from our Creator true biblical masculinity is, until they have been forced to live without it. Here’s to male and female, the way God intended!
