Skip to comments.The Kavanaugh Smear War Broke My Decades-Long Support For Feminism
Posted on 10/12/2018 12:13:10 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
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 wasnt 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.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that someday the opposite sex would view me as a threat. But its true, and their message is loud and clear: Even if youve been a staunch supporter of womens rights for years, taught thousands of women and girls (many of whom were survivors of sexual assault) how to defend themselves from a violent attacker, and authored a book on the subject, you are not to be trusted solely because of your sex.
One neednt look too far to see that todays hyper-feminism climate has men throughout the Western world walking on eggshells at work, at home, everywhere. As a counselor, my male clients routinely voice concerns about having targets on their backs simply because they are men, and I am reticent to take on new female clients out of fear of being falsely accused of sexual impropriety.

Is this the face of the radical feminists that Rush Limbaugh called the Feminazi's? I think not.
It is one thing to be kind to and protect women. And another to accept those who want to label all men as evil.
Note: I've been married to my wife for the past 47 years. She has a mind of her own, but we have had very few arguments and no fights in that span of time. Do we see everything the same, no. But where we don't, it really is not that important.
After 20 years, no longer a feminist?
Well, as the ancient saying goes, “Better late than never.”
He should have spoken out long ago.It’s never about women’s rights or they would march against sharia.It is always about abortion.
I, too, am a counselor. I accept no female clients for just this reason. In my previous career, as a manager in a technology company, I saw another guy fasely accused of sexual harrassment. After that, although I couldn't refuse to meet with female employees, I had a large window placed in the door to my office.
I’m amused when a feminist screams about someone, “You’re not a feminist!” in an accusatory voice. It’s like being a feminist is the epitome of womanhood.
If someone told me that, I’d say, “Yeah. What’s your point? I’m NOT a feminist. Never said I was.”
It’s like that bumper sticker, “You call me ‘bitch’ like that’s a bad thing.”
2 hour investment - about the same as a hollywood trash film.
Thatll hit them where it hurts.
There is nothing feminine about a self described feminist.
My wife cannot stand the snarling, whining, complainers that are in that group. Like the ComDems, they blame everyone but themselves for the problems of the world and hate everything others think or say.
Women are unique, they bring forth and raise children. Nobody else can do that. Men have things they are better at also. Both are necessary, contrary to the rabid leftist fems.
The sex change crap is all a big lie.
Those compromises, like mine, are really not that important. Are they?
Yes. And think about it.
The one thing only women can do? Have children. That is the very thing that the Radical Leftist Fems want to eliminate.
How terminally stupid.
In the over all scheme of things? Nope. And I get my way just as much. LOL!
Frankly I love being a woman and I love those rascally men who can also be gentlemen when called for. I loath the she-masculine -itches whose idiot demands ruin it for the uninitiated world-wide.
well guess what, good men have been in danger since that wicked book “The Power to Heal” was published in the 1980s. I am very glad the Kavanaugh hearing started to wake people up. when people are finally awake, I hope there will be new honest trials for every single man (and some women) who were convicted and are labeled sexual predators without one single shred of evidence!
“Moreover, I have always aspired to be a fair-minded, compassionate, loving, kind, generous, and forgiving man.”
And he still can’t get laid.
Yeah your life sounds like a recruitment poster for marriage.
I mean the way you describe it what man wants to be single when the woman runs the show and you compromise and go along with it? Sign me up.
