by Meadow, one of Nancy Campbell’s granddaughters from Above Rubies – A Husband or the Government?
Editor’s note: Looks like the illogical apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Be sure to go to Above Rubies to read the entire post. I wish I could quote it in full here but there’s not enough room. She starts out well, then veers into completely misunderstanding much of feminism. All the while claiming she ‘loves’ her feminist sisters out in the world. No, dear, feminism is not merely transferring some need to be cared for from a man to a government. It’s more about not needing others to take care of you at all, about being fully an adult with the same rights of determination as male adults.
Instead of looking for those ancient attractions that used to draw women towards men, liberal feminists now look for those same qualities in the government. They want a government that will protect them, provide for them, take care of their needs, and give them free stuff. They want to feel like they can depend on the government. They place their security in the government. They seek the same qualities in a government that women used to seek in a husband.
This is why a majority of voters who elected President Obama (who was sending the message that he would provide for their needs) were women. And perhaps, this is part of the reason why a majority of protestors against President Trump (a conservative, whose agenda is an economy that provides for themselves and he doesn’t believe in giving free-hand-outs) are women. (I know there are other reasons why women hate Trump, because he has been disrespectful towards women in the past, but that’s off subject).
This is my question . . . If they really are feminists and they’re capable of providing for themselves. . . why should they need the government to be their husband? Why should they need the government to give them free care if they are independent and strong women who can provide for themselves? Even though I am not a feminist, I at least have a better understanding of conservative feminism because they don’t rely on the government to provide for all of their needs, which is true independence.
