The Feminist movement was crafted by lesbian and heterosexual woman alike but works better for the lesbian than her cohart. How do you judge a movement. The same way you judge a tree, by the fruit it bears. Let’s see what feminism has produced for the heterosexual woman. If we look at the last 30 years feminism has produced higher pay, more education and greater opportunities. Great, this tree seems good but wait. There’s some other fruit too. The suicide rate for middle-aged women, ages 45 to 64, jumped by 63 percent in the last 30 years. Marriage percentage has decreased every year since the mid 80s. These two blaring stats highlights the failings of Feminism for the heterosexual woman. It’s message of “INDEPENDENCE” and implications that financial and social equality would mean happiness is snake oil. You can’t tell me you are helping women while under your watch woman are killing themselves at a historic clip and women who want marriage have a harder time finding it than they did before you showed up.
The problem is the Feminist agenda wasn’t written with heterosexual women in mind. If it was, then better unions with men would have been part of what success looked like. However Feminism made men the obstacle which has repercussion like less marriage and depression for heterosexual woman that their lesbian counterparts do not suffer. Think about it, the mantra is “we don’t need men”. However, its lesbians who don’t need men, heterosexual woman absolutely do. Heterosexuals women need their own brand of Feminism and it must include men as an ally not the obstacle for woman’s sake. #feminism, #feminist, #NOW, #love, #romance, #marriage, #suicide, #God, #Christian, #relationships, #America, #Americanvalues, #lovesayings, #blacklove, #independentwomen #women
