Reader’s Comment of the Day: Feminism has consigned many women to a lonely old age


In response to Andrew Cadman: Men retreat in the 20-year feminist-led war on masculinity, Sean44SS wrote

Some of us knew forty years ago that feminism would bring trouble to society but if we voiced our concerns we were accused of misogyny. A good example of the damage this wretched movement has done is described by Mallory Millett (the sister of feminist writer Kate Millett), in these words:

I’ve known women who fell for this creed in their youth who now, in their fifties and sixties, cry themselves to sleep decades of countless nights grieving for the children they’ll never have and the ones they coldly murdered because they were protecting the empty loveless futures they now live with no way of going back. “Where are my children? Where are my grandchildren?” they cry to me.

“Your sister’s books destroyed my sister’s life!” I’ve heard numerous times. “She was happily married with four kids and after she read those books, walked out on a bewildered man and didn’t look back.” The man fell into despairing rack and ruin. The children were stunted, set off their tracks, deeply harmed; the family profoundly dislocated and there was “no putting Humpty-Dumpty together again.”
