Feminism: the failed experiment

The daughters reject the sins of the mothers:

Feminism has much to answer for denigrating men and encouraging women to seek independence whatever the cost to their families…. Feminism has betrayed an entire generation of women into childlessness. It is devastating. But far from taking responsibility for any of this, the leaders of the women’s movement close ranks against anyone who dares to question them – as I have learned to my cost. I don’t want to hurt my mother, but I cannot stay silent. I believe feminism is an experiment, and all experiments need to be assessed on their results. Then, when you see huge mistakes have been paid, you need to make alterations.

I suppose it’s easy enough to dismiss observations like mine, given my status as an obvious beneficiary of the White Male Patriarchy. It’s stupid to do so, since my observations are based on obvious historical and demographic facts, but it’s easy. It’s a little harder, however, when it happens to be the black daughter of a feminist icon pointing out exactly the same thing.

Either feminism dies or the West does. Take your pick. It’s not too late, not yet. But one day, it will be.
