Mona Charen’s article on Kate O’Beirne’s book exposes the current crop of Feminist’s real views on marriage an families. It’s not a pretty picture, and it shows why more and more women are rejecting “traditional feminism” for their own kind:
Feminists now claim that they were never against marriage and family. But O’Beirne has kept the quotes in her files. In 1971, Ms. Magazine founder Robin Morgan called marriage “a slavery-like practice,” adding that “We cannot destroy the inequities between men and women until we destroy marriage.” Australian feminist guru Germaine Greer recommended that all women leave their husbands in search of more satisfying “rambling organic structures” (sounds vaguely unhygienic). And Jessie Bernard, a Pennsylvania State University sociologist, asserted that the “destructive nature” of marriage was both figuratively and literally making women sick.
Surprise, men and women are different, and we must recognize the strength in our differences.
