In response to Andrew Cadman: Why is the economy stagnant? It’s feminism, stupid!, Damaris Tighe wrote:

According to psychoanalysis, the suffocating mother over-protects her child and sometimes squeezes the father out of a relationship with her son, so she can have an unhealthy exclusive relationship with the boy. He grows up feminised, without learning the masculine virtues.

We have a state which has also expelled the masculine virtues and over-protects its citizens. As this article points out, obsessive and extreme health and safety rules are a sign of over-feminisation. We are treated like coddled children who aren’t allowed to play in the mud (often this is literally true). The state has become the suffocating mother.
