Has feminism jumped the shark?

Has feminism jumped the shark? By Mark Powell.

In the much loved and long-running television series Happy Days, when the Fonz literally jumped a shark that a whole new trope was born. It’s a reminder that even the best social movement, let alone TV show, reaches a critical point where they cross over from social relevance to logical absurdity. …

The recent article by Annette Sharp … encourages women to completely stop having children so they can advance their careers and so realise the ‘feminist dream.’ This piece, in particular, has me seriously questioning whether feminism has reached a similar nadir. …

Sharp continues, “Only by talking up the rewards of education, hard work, travel, opportunity and professional promotion over the traditional values of love, marriage and motherhood can we hope to achieve the feminist dream or, in truth, empower our daughters one day to realise it.” So, the virtues of “love, marriage and motherhood” should be viewed as being less important than “education… travel… and professional promotion”?

That’s ok, We can just import more third worlders to replace the children they didn’t have. What’s the difference? Allahu Akbar.

Where are the cultural Marxists taking us?

But herein lies the underlying problem with feminism. It doesn’t want women to be feminine, but exactly the same as men. And as such, it results in promoting a hatred towards women since, ironically, it wants a woman to become like a man in every way possible. …

Modern feminism has become analogous to the worst expression of Marxist capitalism, asking people to understand themselves and their value only in terms of what they can economically produce. This is one of the reasons why Marxism is not only so unrealistic, but also so profoundly destructive to the human psyche. Because it seeks to strip people of their innate sense of human dignity in relation to their family, religion, nation and every other social relationship to that of ‘class solidarity.’ …

The current vision presented by feminism is hopelessly short-sighted and inadequate. Who cares if you’ve become the CEO of a leading company if there is no one there to share it with when you come home? What difference does it make if you are not investing yourself into your own flesh and blood? For when we finally retire or pass away, who benefits from all that you’ve accomplished… the company… the government?
