Well, Suzanne Venker, journalist for Fox News and niece of notorious anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly, said it right: Move over, men! Equality is not enough for me; I want to dominate so that you are petrified to be married and have children with me in the future. War on men has been declared! Feel my wrath!
Seriously, Suzanne Venker? I knew that you hated feminism before, but do you really know
nothing that little about it? According to her recent article for Fox, Venker blames women on the “decrease” of men in the workplace and also blames us for the lack of marriageable men. This is because “women aren’t women anymore” and now “men have nowhere to go.”
To get a nice idea of what this is, here are a few lines from her article:
“So if men today are slackers, and if they’re retreating from marriage en masse, women should look in the mirror and ask themselves what role they’ve played to bring about this transformation.
Fortunately, there is good news: women have the power to turn everything around. All they have to do is surrender to their nature–their femininity– and let men surrender to theirs.”
Another wonderful fact that Venker brings up is that gender is not something that we simply socially construct and force people to believe in as children before they fully understand the meaning of their words and actions, it is in our DNA and we should let listen to our DNA. This simply means men should provide for their families while women do feminine things. We need to stop going after careers that are typically done by men, because “men want to love women, not compete with them.”
But there is very good news: feminism has helped men by making women sluttier than they were. Now men can “have sex at hello and even live with their girlfriends with no responsibilities whatsoever.”
This entire article is truly what is wrong with the idea of feminism that is portrayed for the public by the anti-feminists. At all points of feminism there have been people belittling the movement, treating the people who believe in it as though they are hateful, slutty, ugly and terrible people who want to see the ruin of men. This article is a perfect way to see how skewed the truth of feminism really is to the public.
