I often write, and say that Feminists are only pro-choice when a woman makes choices that Feminists think they should make. In other words, Feminism is NOT about empowering women. Rather, Feminism is about controlling women, and forcing them to think, speak, and yes, vote certain ways. Well, now Elizabeth Wuertzel has confirmed my opinion. Writing in the Atlantic, Wuertzel makes clear that Feminism is NOT about empowering women
When my mind gets stuck on everything that is wrong with feminism, it brings out the 19th century poet in me: Let me count the ways. Most of all, feminism is pretty much a nice girl who really, really wants so badly to be liked by everybody — ladies who lunch, men who hate women, all the morons who demand choice and don’t understand responsibility — that it has become the easy lay of social movements. I am going to smack the next idiot who tells me that raising her children full time — by which she really means going to Jivamukti classes and pedicure appointments while the nanny babysits — is her feminist choice. Who can possibly take feminism seriously when it allows everything, as long as women choose it? The whole point to begin with was that women were losing their minds pushing mops and strollers all day without a room or a salary of their own.
See! There you are! Women just cannot go making any choice they like. Not according to Feminist doctrine. Women can only be good Feminists if they KNOW THEIR PLACE!
You can read the rest, but I suggest keeping a vomit bag close by. It is basically the same hateful Feminist screed that we have heard before.
