The thought is certainly most appealing...but I'm not going to hold my breath, waiting for it to happen...the cultural norms, political zeitgeist, and most importantly the behemoth of a system that has been developed to profit from feminist ideology is too large, too pervasive and too entrenched to be declaring the death of the movement anytime soon. It's going to take a cataclysmic event of epic proportions to deliver the wake up call that kills feminism...
Nevertheless, Townhall.com columnist, Kathryn Jean Lopez has written a pretty good article about Hillary Clinton and her gender-based campaign to become the first commander-in-chief. Though I disagree with her premise that Clinton's blatant sexism and radical feminist ideology being exposed in her national campaign is a precursor to the eventual death of feminism, she still has a lot of good points in her column:
Enough is enough. Hillary Clinton has made history already; she has shown us that a woman can be a major presidential candidate. But as we are here living history, I'd like it to now be history.
Simply put, I don't want a woman president. Not if she's running to be a "woman president" and not the leader of the United States.
I'm deeply grateful to my junior senator. Her defeat this year would be a significant milestone for American women: The death of the feminist movement. It would mark the end of the silly-women-talk on the national political scene. The beginning of female candidates running as candidates, without a heavy serving of identity politics.
Well, I'm all with you on the defeat part, but as long as family courts continue to define the role of Fatherhood as nothing more than subsidizing the ex-wife in destroying her family; as long as "Women's Studies" continues as a major course of "higher" educational vocation; as long as the holocaust known as "CHOICE" continues to mercilessly slaughter millions of babies in the womb; as long as the media and popular culture continue to promote the "female good/male bad" stereotype, feminism will be far from dead.
But OF COURSE, that doesn't mean defeating Hillary Clinton would not be any less satisfying...
Despite disagreeing with Lopez's statement that a defeated Clinton would be the death knell for feminism in America, I whole-heartedly agree with the conclusion of her piece:
...I have the audacity to hope the next woman who runs will run because she's qualified to be commander in chief, not because she's a Uterine-American.
