If you haven’t been hiding under a rock for the last seventy years, I’m sure you’ve heard the term “feminist.” If not, here’s a quick definition Google Feedback provided:
A person who supports feminism.
Okay, that didn’t help. Here’s the definition of feminism.
The advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.
Which, honestly, sounds great! Basic human rights (life, liberty, justice, the pursuit of happiness, et cetera) should totally be advocated for every human regardless of sex, race, or age. However: feminists today are not what they were many decades ago. Instead of advocating for all people, the general lot of them have become petty brats that disrespect men and blatantly ignore or harm the plight of unborn children, which is the greatest injustice to be happening today, worldwide.
So, in short, that’s why I’m not a feminist. Am I an activist? You bet I am. Do I care for all people? Of course. Do I believe in equality for everyone? Yup. But today, feminism is not accomplishing anything that it once did. Feminism’s track came to its end a long time ago (in the US, that is) and to continue the train will only run it off a cliff.
Here is a link to a video series by Christina Hoff Sommers. She is a classy, kind woman who approaches and picks apart current feminist ideology with poise and grace. Please, before you come to me with any objections, watch her videos. She probably addresses the questions on your mind.
