In response to Kathy Gyngell: Feminists conjure up a new moral panic. Now all boys are rapists, jimmy wrote:
Feminists destroyed the ideas of chivalry, loyalty, love, devotion and lifelong monogamous marriage. They declared marriage to be a form of oppression and derided those parents desperate for their daughter to remain a virgin until marriage, knowing as they did that it would give her the best chance of a lifelong stable marriage (the statistics on this are brutal).
Instead they decided that 17-year-olds should be left to do whatever their instincts tell them. And lo and behold many behave like animals. All great civilisations of the past understood that knowledge and morals had to be passed from one generation to the next. And the sexuality of young women, just like the sexuality of married men, has to be controlled. An 18-year-old girl has enormous power, left without guidance she might use it for “fun” and promiscuity, not understanding she is destroying her chances of a happy marriage. Likewise men who have some status and money, which usually takes time and work, become much more appealing to women. The tradition of marriage actually restrained them, forced them to stay with their wives and care for their children.
All of this rather sophisticated system has been endlessly attacked by feminists, who simply misunderstood human nature and assumed that taking away any restrictions and morals would never result in any bad behaviour.
So feminists destroyed chivalry and love and now complain that young boys treat girls like animals? Beyond parody really, and lays bare the ignorance of post-1960s hippie liberalism. It is a sad thing for society, for girls, women, parents, and many men. The only ones who really do well from it are all the cads and men who want to sleep with young girls then toss them aside. Throughout history, and especially in the last century, revolutionaries time and again hurt those they claimed to stand for. And that curious phenomenon has never been truer than the damage feminism has brought to so many women – who will never know the deep love and affection their grandmothers took for granted.
