something to honk about
The problem with feminism is that it has accomplished very little in the way of #realfeminism. Primarily, what feminism has accomplished, is allowing women to succeed when they act like men. If women are tough and bossy, forgo child-rearing, make their career a priority, then they can have something American society calls “success”. They can get power, wealth, and status.
Sadly, that has created more of a degradation of society. The opposite of progress. The family unit has broken down. Extended family networks and support are rare. Community itself is rare and people largely have to fend for themselves as individuals in an individualistic focused world-view.
We still have not seen American society and culture embrace feminine qualities and characteristics. We have never seen mothers and wives elevated to hero status. We have not seen nurturing, giving, and self-sacrifice appreciated as social values. As a country, we do not applaud stay-at-home moms for the contributions they make to our communities.
I think that is sad. I think that is a glaring error of the so-called feminist movement. I don’t think what we have realized as a society can even be called feminism. It’s not. It’s just more masculinity and patriarchy cloaked in disguise.
#RealFeminism is when society truly embraces women for the uniquely feminine qualities and values they bring to the table. That is what I am for… #realfeminism
