Our website used to have a great feminist fan who posted some hilarious comments about how fantastic and confident young women are. Our friend ‘Girl Power’ informed us that today’s generation of young women were kick ass, and confident and going to take over the world, so we had all better get used to it!
If this is what feminism produced, then perhaps it would have all been worth it. But it has not. What it has churned out is a generation of moaning, whining women who despite unparalleled opportunity and wealth view themselves as victims. Feminism has infantilised women.
Sadly, many of today’s twenty-something women have absorbed the victimhood promoted by the femi-industry so thoroughly that they are now depressed and anxious for the future. Quite a few men feel this way also – but not to the same extent.
According to a report called No Country for Young Women (complete with depressed looking woman) from the charity, The Young Women’s Trust (that is part of the femi-industry), 38 per cent of women were worried about their mental health, 22 per cent felt depressed, 55 per cent of young women felt worried for the future and 46 per cent felt ‘worn down.’ Oh Lordy, what a feminist legacy!
I find this research advocacy quite shocking. After at least a decade of women claiming victimhood and manipulating public policy to serve their interests, girls now outperform boys all the way through the education system, young women outnumber young men at university and they out-earn them after graduation.
Feminists have mounted an extremely effective campaign to shape policy and grab more and more privileges for their identity group, resulting in this greater performance. But still women are not happy and for the feminists it is never enough, is it? The whining goes on, the demand for resources increases, even as girls and women outperform their brothers and boyfriends.
Buried in this report, however, is the rather interesting statistic that 53 per cent of people said it was more important when looking for a husband/wife/partner that they like animals (53 per cent) than that they are a feminist (28 per cent)!
Another rather awkward finding was that young women (68 per cent) are more likely than young men (41 per cent) to have said it is important to find a partner who can provide financial security. Think about this, despite years of propaganda by feminists, a full 68 per cent of women think it is important to find a man who can provide for them. The women want this even though they want to out-earn their partners. Oh, and for the men to do half the childcare. Because that is not demanding at all.
The charity tries to spin this as, “this suggests that young women are more likely to assume that it is their partner who can find financial independence than themselves”, no doubt because of the ‘discrimination’ the little ladies will face.
This is taking liberties to say the least. Perhaps, women deep down really do just want a good man to take care of them and have far more traditional views on family life then they are permitted to admit.
Sadly, this is less and less likely to happen as the elite feminists drive an ideology that was only ever going to serve the interests of the one per cent. Remember – the feminists do not care about women; they care about ideology.
There is no doubt in my mind that the majority of women are not signed up to this feminist orthodoxy of parity as opposed to equality. Perhaps, this is why the modern twenty-something woman is so miserable – they have inherited the fruits of the poisonous feminist ideology that seeks to divide the sexes instead of uniting them. No wonder they are all so damned depressed.
