Feminism is incompatible with human nature. It's built the from the the premise that nature was wrong to create the 2 sexes. Feminists have taken the impossible task of changing human nature.
Feminism is incompatible with common sense, marriage, motherhood, and family. Family is the best way for men and women to live together. The best way for people who care about each other to nest, have shelter, and face life's challenges. While Feminism did change women's attitudes about family most men haven't changed and babies will certainly never change.
Feminism is incompatible with personal happiness. It's techniques of identifying and exaggerating grievances produces a chip-on-shoulder attitude towards life. Feminists are constantly bitter, angry, and hostile and looking for anything to vent those on.
Most of all Feminists think the Government is the solution for everything. To them nothing is personal or private. Need a job, use Affirmative Action. Don't meet physical requirement gender norm the test to get a higher score. Want a promotion Glass Ceiling Commission will force employers to give it to you. Need time off for a sick child, the Family Leave commission will arrange it. Need a babysitter, federal funded Daycare. Don't get along your husband, Legal Services forces Divorce. Want to punish husbands, prosecution will believe accusations of abuse without evidence or corroboration.
To sum up: The Government is no substitute for Husbands. Feminism is no substitute for Marriage. Liberation is no substitute for love and loyalty. Political Correctness is no substitute for Chivalry. Careers are no substitute for children and grandchildren.
She covers a wide range of topics over the course of this work from home life to media misinformation. Phyllis Schlafly's Conservative philosophy is relevant even decades later.
I have been a housewife for years and anytime I talk about how my husband has always taken care of us and provided for us everyone always talks about how I MUST have some way to support myself because, hey, he could take off and leave at anytime then how would I survive? What some of them apparently don't understand is that the only reason a man is able to do that is because of the women's liberation. The very laws that used to protect us are either 1) not in existence anymore or 2) routinely used against us BY men. When I truly came to the understanding of things and really learned our history and how the women's movement (that was supposed to "liberate" us and give us all kinds of wonderful rights) had simply left us out there without any protection, the truth was enough to practically bring me to my knees. My heart literally cries inside for what we have truly lost and what women's liberation has truly ripped away from us. I see girls everyday being taken advantage of. Nobody cares that our entertainment many times consists of men bashing, making false allegations and calling women every name in the book (something that used to be illegal). Even my own mother was taken advantage of by my dad (who was in his 30s when they married while she was only 18). Instead of being required to provide for his wife he controlled her and took advantage of her in every way possible (something he could not have done before women's liberation).
I am so thankful that someone like Schlafly was there to stand up for women. Even though the ERA never did pass (thanks in large part to Schlafly) that didn't stop equal rights fanatics and feminists from going on a rampage to make all laws gender neutral (no matter how absurd, unjust and illogical it is). It seems as though nobody has the courage to stand up for women anymore and the injustice the women's movement has done to us. It just makes you wonder what the future holds...
