Why to be a woman against feminism? Learning and reading about feminism

Feminists are often arguing “learn more about feminism”. Well, we did. We studied more about feminism and women against feminism as Erin Pizzey. We know more and more about the feminist agenda. Well, let’s learn more about feminism with the feminists gurus themselves:

The incest taboo can be destroyed only by destroying the nuclear family as the primary institution of the culture. (Shulamith Firestone, feminist- The Dialectics of Sex)

I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them. Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor, feminist.

The nuclear family must be destroyed… Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process. Linda Gordon, feminist.

I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig. Andrea Dworkin, feminist.

Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women’s movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage. Sheila Cronin, the leader of the feminist organization NOW, feminist.

Marriage as an institution developed from rape as a practice. Andrea Dworkin, feminist.

The institution of sexual intercourse is anti-feminist. Ti-Grace Atkinson, feminist.

Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear. Susan Brownmiller, Against Our Will p.6, feminist.

When a woman reaches ****** with a man she is only collaborating with the patriarchal system, eroticizing her own oppression. Sheila Jeffrys, feminist.

Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated. Catherine MacKinnon, feminist.

The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men. Sharon Stone, feminist.

Ninety-five percent of women’s experiences are about being a victim. Or about being an underdog, or having to survive… women didn’t go to Vietnam and blow things up. They are not Rambo. Jodie Foster, quoted in The New York Times Magazine, feminist.

The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race. Sally Miller Gearhart, in The Future – If There Is One – Is Female, feminist.

And if the professional rapist is to be separated from the average dominant heterosexual (male), it may be mainly a quantitative difference. Susan Griffin, Rape: The All-American Crime, feminist.

If life is to survive on this planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth. I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males. Mary Daly, feminist.

If anyone is prosecuted for filing a false report, then victims of real attacks will be less likely to report them. David Angier, feminist.
Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience. Catherine Comins, feminist.

As long as some men use physical force to subjugate females, all men need not. The knowledge that some men do suffices to threaten all women. He can beat or kill the woman he claims to love; he can rape women…he can sexually molest his daughters… THE VAST MAJORITY OF MEN IN THE WORLD DO ONE OR MORE OF THE ABOVE. Marilyn French, feminist.

I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He’s just incapable of it. Barbara Jordan, former Congresswoman, feminist.

Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release. Germaine Greer, feminist.

Man-hating is everywhere, but everywhere it is twisted and transformed, disguised, tranquilized, and qualified. It coexists, never peacefully, with the love, desire, respect, and need women also feel for men. Always man-hating is shadowed by its milder, more diplomatic and doubtful twin, ambivalence. Judith Levine ,feminist.
Women have their faults / men have only two: / everything they say / everything they do. Popular Feminist Graffiti ,feminist.

We are taught, encouraged, moulded by and lulled into accepting a range of false notions about the family. As a source of some of our most profound experiences, it continues to be such an integral part of our emotional lives that it appears beyond criticism. Yet hiding from the truth of family life leaves women and children vulnerable. Canadian Panel on Violence Against Women, feminist.

I do want to be able to explain to a 9-year-old boy in terms he will understand why I think it’s OK for girls to wear shirts that revel in their superiority over boys. Treena Shapiro ,feminist.

  1. Who exactly are these people? Though there are extremists, as in any movement, it seems that the feminists that have made the most impact on a global stage had very positive messages.

    Lena Dunham: “Do you believe that women should be paid the same for doing the same jobs? Do you believe that women should be allowed to leave the house? Do you think that women and men both deserve equal rights? Great, then you’re a feminist.”

    Maya Angelou: “Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”

    Diane Von Furstenburg: “Feel like a woman, wear a dress.”

    Hillary Clinton: “We need to make equal pay and equal opportunity for women and girls a reality so women’s rights are human rights once and for all.”

    Madonna: “Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots. ‘Cause it’s okay to be a boy. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading. ‘Cause you think being a girl is degrading.” & “I’m tough, ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.”

    Sheryl Sandberg: “I believe that if more women lean in, we can change the power structure of our world and expand opportunities for all.”

    Malala Yousafzai: “Extremists have shown what frightens them most: A girl with a book.”

    Beyonce: “You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist and a feminist- whatever you want to be- and still be a sexual being.”

    Emma Watson: “We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes… but I can see that they are, and that when they are free, things will change for woman as a natural consequence.” & “The more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop.”

    In order to fully examine a movement, it seems valuable to look at the positive and negative aspects, instead of just focusing on one or the other.

    • Cookie,

      You start with Lena Dunham, who falsely accused a male classmate of rape (if anything is emblematic of feminism, that’s it) and whose claim about feminism and equality is demonstrably false. In poll after poll, the overwhelming majority of people who believe in gender equality are not feminists.

      Feminists’ incessant and fraudulent attempts to claim possession of the sex equality issue is particularly repulsive in light of their equally incessant attempts to smother science with sexist hate myths and threat narratives in regard to domestic violence, relationship aggression, sexual assault, legal rights, and professional compensation.

      For example, when Emma Watson asserted, “I commit to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls,” the implication is that females are exclusively threatened by males, who must be opposed.

      The reality is that the majority of all violence is directed at males, the majority of one-way domestic violence is female-on-male [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1854883/], the majority of women in battered women’s shelters had committed severe violence against their male partners before being struck [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glenn-sacks/researcher-says-womens-in_b_222746.html], women are far more aggressive and controlling in relationships than men [http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/relationships/10927507/Women-are-more-controlling-and-aggressive-than-men-in-relationships.html], and the majority of domestic violence in general goes in both directions.

      The woman who pioneered battered women’s shelters in the early 1970s, Erin Pizzey, got her dog killed and the lives of her family threatened by feminists just for mentioning that last fact. They also aggressively colonized the movement she started and drove her out of it. They now exploit and manipulate DV victims in thousands of shelters throughout the world, to spread hate and pseudoscience against an entire class of human beings. This is not a fringe element. This is the movement’s true and essential nature.

      Equally atrocious feminist hate myths adhere to the discrimination issue Watson mentions. The strongest bias in the American judicial system, for example, is the sentencing disparity between men and women who commit the same crimes. It’s several times worse than any racial sentencing disparity, and yet “we stand for equality of the sexes” feminists not only fail to speak out against it, feminists in both the UK and US are actually advocating never putting women in jail for anything.

      Like the article says, when you actually do some reading, feminism does not look at all like its dictionary definition or its marketing materials.
