The Kavanaugh Smear War Broke My Decades-Long Support For Feminism

The Kavanaugh Smear War Broke My Decades-Long Support For Feminism, by Albert Marrewa.

For more than two decades, I traveled the country facilitating rape and assault prevention lectures, seminars, and workshops for women of all ages. I was passionate about this work, committed to the cause, and believed wholeheartedly that what I was doing was a wholly virtuous endeavor. I considered myself a feminist. But that was then, and this is now.

All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular. Foolishly, I hoped things would eventually turn around, only to see things get worse over time.

Yet it wasn’t until I witnessed the Me Too movement snowball into an all-out, anti-male witch hunt that I realized good men were in real trouble. Astonishingly, after having been an advocate for women my entire adult life, I quickly learned I was still considered the “enemy,” simply for being a man. …

Make no mistake: One of the goals of the radical feminist is to persecute any man who dares to wear his masculinity on his sleeve. In fact, masculinity is their true adversary.

To be sure, every man — regardless of his age, race, political persuasion, or sexual orientation — is in their crosshairs, but especially those who embody traditional masculine qualities, such as strength, discipline, direction, independence, confidence, and assertiveness. And God help him if he’s also white, Christian, conservative, affluent, or holds a position of power. …

The recent attempt by all the usual suspects to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation … has obliterated the last vestiges of the “women’s advocate” dwelling inside my heart. Setting politics aside, watching a good man being taken down by a mob with zero regard for due process and the presumption of innocence is the final straw for me. In other words, I’m done. While it pains me to say this, I will no longer champion any self-described women’s cause unless things dramatically change for the better.

Getting it now? Good, better late than never. Welcome aboard.

Glenn Reynolds:

Yeah, weird how when you constantly attack and denigrate a group of people, they start voting for the other side.

UPDATE: The new spring in the step of the non-left in the US:

Protester demands that GOP Senator “apologize to my children for ruining their futures.”

Cassidy looks at the kids: “Guess what? Your parents are using you as tools. In the future if somebody makes an allegation against you and there’s no proof for it, you’ll be OK.”
