The Anti-Family Goals of the Feminists

Harvard Professor Harvey Mansfield courageously made it clear in his book called Manliness that the feminist movement is anti-men, anti-masculine, anti-marriage, anti-motherhood, and anti-morality. The feminists were the driving force in inflicting our country with unilateral divorce, which means that, after a man and woman stand up and swear before witnesses to be faithful till death do us part, one party can break the contract without the consent of the other as easy as checking a box on a printed form. The spouse who wants out of the marriage contract doesn't have to allege fault by the other spouse, and doesn't even have to give a reason.

The feminists are anti-masculine, as shown by the way they used the federal bureaucracy and the courts to force colleges to cancel more than 450 college wrestling teams. Wrestling is so masculine, you know. Of course, canceling wrestling doesn't help women in any way; that just hurts men.

The feminists are anti-morality; they invite, urge, and pressure young women to join the hook-up crowd. The feminists look on our expectation that mothers should care for their own babies as a prime example of the oppression of women, and therefore the feminists want taxpayer-paid daycare centers should be available to all women. And the feminists are very anti-fulltime homemaker. Scholar Carolyn Graglia has documented the fact that the feminist movement's principal goal is to make the role of fulltime homemakers economically impossible and socially disdained, and to get all wives and mothers out of the home and into the workplace.

My newest book, co-written with Suzanne Venker, called The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know and Men Can't Say, is must reading for all young women so they won't be led down a pro-feminist instead of a pro-family path.
