The Death Of Feminism

35 years of feminism -> Governor Schwarzenegger

Sailer's conclusion is that after 35 years of feminism, the best the Left has to show is juiced, promiscuous Arnold Schwarzenegger defeating nerdy anti-man Gray Davis for governor of California. My observation is that after 35 years of feminism, we've got Mexican weather girls and female athletes who get more enticing every year.

(As an aside, women's "sports" such as rhythmic gymnastics, synchronized swimming and women's beach volleyball strike me as nothing less than elaborate personal ads. Google these phrases and have a look. I don't know how any male with normal T-receptors is supposed to think otherwise.)

What is going on? I thought we were beyond these superficial assessments of looks and gender and finally at the enlightened plane of judging people on their pure careerist merits. But the aesthetic competition grinds on, with everybody perennially obsessed with losing weight, staying young and scoring. The culture is wholly suffused with advertising and exploiting sexual market value.

I perceive a deep cynicism behind the whole feminist movement. At best, feminism tilts the scales in favor of unattractive women in procuring government and corporate sinecures for which their looks and attitude would otherwise disqualify them. In the real world, would anybody hire this woman to teach anything? The Prime Directive of feminism, "reproductive choice," seems most capably exploited by high sexual market value women who don't want an unplanned pregnancy handicapping them in the hunt for the Big One. The only other women who seem exercised about abortion and birth control are harridans whose looks, age, personality or combination thereof have already made their reproductive choices for them. "Reproductive choice" for these women is nothing less than assuring the more nubile and fitter competition doesn't get a leg up.

In short, feminism seems to be a doctrine dreamed up by high-g women to benefit their class. The unforeseen consequence is that feminism, having captured the State, has guaranteed that men no longer need to bring marriage and bread-winning to the table in order to obtain sex with females. Women who aspire to be good wives and mothers lose their competitive advantage, and the slut-race to the bottom is on.

She looks like Leslie West.

Excellent turn of phrase.

Back before the Internet, I joined the National Organization for Women to get their newsletter. After reading it for a year, I concluded that Betty Friedan had been right: organized feminism tends to turn into a lesbian front.
