Feminists Prove Their Nastiness

My brand new book called The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know and Men Can't Say describes how the feminists are anti-men, anti-marriage, and anti-motherhood, and that they are particularly powerful in the mainstream media and in colleges and schools. We saw a tremendous example of how really nasty the feminists are, and how they can peddle their malicious comments in the mainstream media, when the New York Times published a major article on Mothers Day entitled "When We Hated Mom." It's really hard to think of a more inappropriate and unkind title of a Mothers Day article. It was written by a college professor named Stephanie Coontz.

She started off her article by attacking my book, The Flipside of Feminism, and then rehashed the Betty Friedan myth that fulltime homemakers of the 1950s lived a terrible life, constantly exhausted and depressed, and would have preferred to have been in a paid job in the workforce. She denied that fulltime mothers were then held in great esteem. She said that what she labels "momism" was a threat to the moral fiber of America on a par with Communism. The fact is that Professor Coontz was too young in the 1940s and 1950s to know anything about fulltime homemakers or even about Communism. Maybe she was describing her own family. In any event, she is supremely unqualified to give advice to young women.

Young women who are besieged with this kind of feminist propaganda, based on a falsification of history, should read my book called The Flipside of Feminism. It will give you a view of life that you simply will not get in school or college, plus a roadmap that can lead you to a happy life with husband and children. I urge you to reject feminism and embrace the lifestyle of the traditional family, consisting of a mother, a father, and children, each responsible for their own duties.
