What Feminist Regret Looks Like

The well-known feminist Jeannette Kupferman, expresses quite the litany of regrets at what the feminist movement has become. While not repentance, it is certainly striking to see that when you destroy the foundation, don’t be surprised when the house falls down. If you click through, please be aware that a bunch of sexy clickbait in the sidebar reinforces one of the points Kupferman makes in the article.

The ERA. Oh good grief. Opening rant was pretty typical.

Ha! Good ERA debate. I especially liked, “this culture is going to do what it’s aways done, practice common sense.”

I like how his example of “common sense” was not having men and women in the same restroom. :-/

Lol… women being confused about which bathroom to use…

Doug, you rube… he CLEARLY STATED that there’s not some judge that wants his mother tinkling in the bathroom next to some guy.

Indeed, as he stated, our society has done what it always does and exercised common sense, contrary to your far-right slippery-slope fear-mongering!

I thought of jonathan reading this. Don’t agree with everything and he misses some issues (like whether rich is relative to culture), but makes some interesting points.

If you need an article by a theologian to comment on…

Second note now that I’ve gone through all the links (and often links of links)…it’s interesting how so many of this research is by people who are certainly well-off themselves, probably living in a community of mostly well-off people, likely at a university funded by well-off people. So there are a lot of subconscious incentives not to do this kind of research at all, perhaps even to fudge the results if you do do it. Or maybe conscious.
