What Is Feminism?

Honestly, I don't get it at all.

My wife is one of the most impressive people I know. In terms of where she started and how far she's made it, if you picked any 100 Americans at random, her story would put her in the top 3, no question about it. When it comes to the tactical and the practical, when she speaks, the wise man listens and takes her suggestions very seriously.

What does she want more than anything else? Grandchildren, done the right way. She would love it if our children found loving spouses, got married in the Church, moved in together after they got married and then made plenty of beautiful babies.

Why aren't things like that the cornerstones of modern feminism?

Grandchildren? I'm all in, too!

I'm with you on this. My wife is freaking awesome. The only silly thing she's ever done is marry me. What is it the femists want that isn't available to them?

Oh, and grandchildren are as good as advertised (and Grandma thinks so too!).

Because feminism is *hatred* of femininity. Feminism (and feminists) also hate masculinity -- and men -- but for a different reason.

"moved in together after they got married"

It's not so much the moving in together before marriage that (tends to) doom a marriage, it's the f*rnicating before marriage that (tends to) doom a marriage. Shacking up just makes it public knowledge that you're f*rnicating ... and that your presumed marriage will end in divorce.
