Alright, all you pink, knit kitty hat-wearing, genitalia-costumed protesters — what do you have to say about THIS?
In a fantastic and unbelievably timely piece in the Christian Post, journalist and radio show host, Julie Roys writes about feminism and sexual predators.
It’s time for A Reckoning.
It was published on Tuesday, November 28, the day before the shocking firing of Matt Lauer from NBC News.
It is an incredibly well-written indictment of modern feminism and their role in aiding and abetting sexual predators in Washington, Hollywood, and the rest of American society.
(FYI for all the offense-mongers out there, this article was written by a female ClashDaily Editor.)
Roy cites 5 big reasons why feminism has contributed to the sexual exploitation and harassment of women.
1. Not calling out sexual predators that are ideological allies
Roys enumerates the ‘feminists’ that had jumped to the defense of Bill Clinton in the 90s amidst the allegations of sexual assault:
– Betty Friedan essentially said that she’s not sure if the allegations are true, but she doesn’t care because he’s appointed strong women, started a national childcare policy, and stood firm on abortion;
– Nina Burleigh’s crude remark about giving Clinton oral sex just for keeping abortion legal;
– and of course, the infamous New York Times op-ed by Gloria Steinem titled, ‘Feminists and the Clinton Question’ where she defends Bill’s assaults as ‘clumsy passes’.
In the 1990s and subsequent decades, feminism revealed itself to be shockingly Machiavellian. At a critical time, when the nation’s attention was trained on the plight of women exploited by a powerful man, feminism essentially told female victims to suck it up and move on. Is it any wonder that women like actress Natalie Portman have been rendered numb to the sexual harassment they’ve routinely endured?
Portman recently disclosed that when the allegations against Weinstein first surfaced, she thought, “Wow, I’m so lucky that I haven’t had this.” Then on further reflection she realized she’s been the victim of sexual harassment a hundred times, but had learned to dismiss it as “part of the process.” “I’ve had discrimination or harassment on almost everything I’ve ever worked on in some way,” she said.
Feminism also told powerful predators like Bill Clinton that if they support liberal causes, they can have their way with women and feminists will have their back. Is it any wonder that the Harvey Weinsteins of this world took this message and ran with it?
And then, Roy levels the knockout punch:
Let’s face it. We’re in this current cultural moment because of feminists, not in spite of them!
She’s absolutely right.
But it’s not just feminists’ protection of predators that has contributed to the epidemic of sexual harassment and abuse in this country. The entire ideology of feminism renders women as tools for men…
…Women don’t want abortions; men do. In fact, a study reported in the Medical Science Monitor found that 64-percent of women who abort feel pressured to do so. Similarly, Frederica Matthewes-Green, who talked to hundreds of women about their decision to abort for her book, Real Choices, found that women aren’t having abortions because they are poor, or because a child would interfere with school or career plans. They’re having abortions because the men in their lives tell them to do so.
Matthewes-Green reported that 88-percent of the women she interviewed said their trip to the abortion clinic was not a choice, but a capitulation. They didn’t feel empowered; they felt isolated, overwhelmed and sad.
Mathhewes-Green said that women don’t choose abortion like an ice cream cone or a Porsche, she went so far as to illustrate the ‘woman’s choice’ like an ‘animal caught in a trap that wants to gnaw its own leg off’.
Yet, abortion is still a pillar of the feminist movement.
So much so that Pro-Life groups weren’t allowed to march with the Nasty Women in Washinton in January.
Yet abortion remains enshrined as the holy grail of feminism. The National Organization of Women (NOW) names so-called “reproductive justice” as one of its five main campaigns. Reproductive Rights is also cited as one of the Women’s March main “unity principles.”
Feminism’s commitment to abortion is downright fanatical. As one of Hillary Clinton’s biographers, Dr. Paul Kengor, once wrote, “(Abortion) is Hillary’s hill to die on. I believe Hillary Clinton would give her life for Roe v. Wade.”
But that’s not the entirety of Roy’s ire. She’s not just writing about feminists past, but also feminists present.
3. Making women the functional equivalents of men
As much as feminists want to claim that women are identical to men — NEWSFLASH! They’re not.
It’s ok that there are differences in the genders.
Abortion is necessary to achieve feminism’s goal of making women the functional equivalents of men. But women aren’t the functional equivalents of men. Perhaps someone should inform feminists that women have a womb; we nurse babies; and we’d prefer to have our unique maternal functions protected, rather than obliterated.
Of course, intersectional feminists would dispute that, because some women have a penis.
4. ‘Hook-up’ culture
We’d also prefer feminists to call predatory men to account – not just the Bill Clintons and Harvey Weinsteins, but the “Alexes” and “Martys.” These are the guys who bragged to a Vanity Fair reporter about their “Tinderellas,” the dozens of girls they’ve slept with and discarded after finding them on dating apps like Tinder and Hinge.
Feminists should be up in arms over the wanton abuse of women inherent in the current hookup culture; instead so-called “third-wave” feminists are actually promoting it.
These “sex-positive” or “porn-positive” feminists are so deceived that they actually think freely prostituting one’s body is somehow in women’s best interests. Heavily influenced by the message of the sexual revolution, these daughters of second-wave feminists believe sexual freedom is essential to women’s freedom and, as a result, oppose controlling or limiting sex in any way.
You know like ‘feminist’ and 2018 Grammy nominee Cardi B and others that are peddling sex as a pastime or a way to wealth and fame.
5. Sex/Porn Positive ‘feminists’ strong-arming anyone that disagrees with them
Just like with abortion, if you disagree with feminists on their view of casual sex and that women view sex differently than men do, they’ll disavow you.
Sadly, their errant ideology is killing them. As a female student at Boston College told Vanity Fair, “Sex should stem from emotional intimacy, and it’s the opposite with us right now, and I think it really is kind of destroying females’ self-images.” Her classmate agreed and added, “But if you say any of this out loud, it’s like you’re weak, you’re not independent, you somehow missed the whole memo about third-wave feminism.”
