The Other McCain has an update of sorts on the outrage some Feminists vented at Kirsten Dunst because she dared that she saw benefits to traditional gender roles
Hayley Hoover at The Gloss (calling Dunst’s comments “a pile of problematic bullshit”) and Ariane Sommer at Fox News(accusing Dunst of “regressing to a 1950s archetype of womanhood”). So if there was not perhaps an “outbreak of mass Dunst-induced psychosis,” certainly the reaction was more widespread than the comments of Ryan and Ritzen.
Furthermore, since when is calling attention to the lunatic screeching of feminists the same as “pathetic pandering of the notion that women are crazy and overemotive”? Conflating these separate categories — women and feminists — is at the heart of complaints that conservative women have been making for decades, namely the tendency of the liberal media to present feminist ideologues as the spokeswomen for the interests of all women. (This tendency is paralleled by the way the media present labor unions as representatives of “the working class” and present Al Sharpton as a spokesman for “civil rights.”) What the women defending Dunst —e.g., Dana Loesch, Katie Yoder and Melissa Braunstein – are saying is that feminists don’t speak for them and their interests.
And thank God for that! If women let feminists speak for them, they must believe that the pinnacle of women’s rights is legalized abortion, all heterosexual intercourse is rape, and lesbianism is the only possible escape from male oppression. Insofar as feminist ideology has prevailed, the effect of its influence has been to send its disciples hurtling toward extinction by encouraging them to view the normal means of procreation with horror, as a cruel device of the patriarchy.
“I don’t want a baby. . . . Nothing will make me want a baby. . . . “This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion.”
– Amanda Marcotte
Well there you go, Amanda Marcotte is still crazier than a pet coon, and Feminists are still not pleased when a woman does not know her place.
You should go read the rest, no one really rips the mask off the grotesque face of Feminism like Stacy McCain does. Basically, Feminism, to me, is just another arm of Leftism. They seek to control women’s actions, and words by bullying tactics, and they seek to
empower embitter as many women as they can. And, in the end, as the title suggests, Feminists will lose because they are fighting against nature Yes, you heard me, Feminism is about indoctrinating women to change basic behaviors that women have naturally. Women love men, are attracted to men, and yes, need men. And yes, most women want to be mothers and cherish the role that mothers and wives traditionally have had and flourished in. Feminists would love to change all that. They seek to convince women that they do not need men, and that staying at home and raising kids is akin to slavery, and that the two greatest achievements any woman can have is to A) have an abortion, and B) become a Lesbian.
And, yes, I do realize that any Feminist reading that last paragraph will become outrageously outraged, but really, they seem to be perpetually outraged anyway, so…..
