Ugly “feminism” has zilch to do with equality.
By Corrine Barraclough
Last night I read a feminist columnist attempt to deny that her brand of “feminism” is “superficial”. I read it twice but the absolute lack of logic only increased.
By definition “superficial” means something that is not what it first appears. On closer inspection, the wheels are wonky. You know, like feminism pretending to be about equality and harmony between the sexes but scratch the surface and it bursts into blazing flames.
“Those of us who devote our energies to the feminist project of gender equality do so with the knowledge that this is not always the easiest of journeys,” Ford wrote.
The arrogance is dripping.
Ford’s ugly “feminism” has zilch to do with equality. Nada. Niente. Squat.
Why? This is why.
Today, I received this email:
I recently attended the cinema to watch the latest Spiderman film with my two boys aged 10 and 12. Whilst watching the adverts in the lead up to the film, I was shocked by an advert about domestic violence, but the message was portrayed as the male being the perpetrator.
The whole way thru this advert it would flash back to the male receiving a tattoo on his back and eventually you got to see the text of this tattoo, "she pissed me off so I hit her.”
My two young boys didn't know what to think and they were a little taken back by this also. Just seems to be very one sided, I was in a relationship with a narcissist for 12 years and the emotional abuse I received was terrible. This is why I want to make a stand now and try and give my two young boys a role model to look up to.”
It was signed with the name of one man. In fact, it actually sums up sentiments of men and women right across the country.
This is the result of your “feminist project of gender equality”, Ford.
This is the result of the ridiculous journey that you embarked with no sat nav and only the fuel of revenge.
This email above shows the damage your “project” has done to society.
It shows the catastrophic impact your “project” is having on young boys.
Successful journeys need a destination; you need to be clear of where you’re heading before you set off. Especially, as an aside, if you’re using taxpayer’s money to keep the engine running.
If the destination for “feminism” was ever equality you’ve zoomed past in your rage-filled road trip and forgotten to stop. Female supremacy is not equality.
To attempt to tie the notion of a “feminist project” to “gender equality” is an utter paradox.
The fact that innocent young boys can’t even go and watch Spiderman without being bombarded with government funded feminist propaganda is proof of that.
