While I’m an advocate for equal rights and opportunities between all kinds of people, there are 3 fundamental reasons why I think Feminism, as we know it today, will never succeed.
Before diving into it, I want to put a disclaimer that this is just my view/opinion and everyone is entitled to their opinion nowadays, right? So if you don’t like what I’m about to say, there’s not much I can do about that, but feel free to leave a comment down below.
Now, here are the 3 reasons:
1. The Name of Feminism
So to start things off with a bang, this might sound blatantly stupid, but whoever came up with the name for this social rights movement clearly wasn’t thinking straight. If you want to advocate for equality of rights between men and women, it would’ve been better to name it the “Gender Rights Movement” or something along these lines.
Imagine if the civil rights movement had been called “BLACKISM”, how far d’you think that would’ve gone? Yea, I rest my case.
2. Lack of Leadership
As far as the eye can see, there doesn’t seem to be anyone who is spearheading this movement. Who is in charge? Who is going to lead the poor/oppressed women to bring about the much-needed change in mentality for a better world/future?
From what I’ve ascertained, there is no charismatic figure which is paving the way. The civil rights movement had Martin Luther King Jr., which is why it had such a massive effect and impact on humanity.
Feminism has no unifying leader, and that’s the truth.
3. Feminism is not equality
From what I’ve seen occurring on a societal level through a behavioral-economical perspective, modern-day Feminism seems to instill this idea into the general population that women are special, that they’re the victims and men are the oppressors. And what this inevitably brings about is that it seemingly allows women to backlash and do whatever the hell they desire towards men, regardless of what the consequences may be.
Moreover, the most vital point is that Feminism is somehow trying to prove that women are SUPERIOR to men. Or that a woman can do anything a man can.
Which makes absolutely no sense from a purely rational-logical perspective. The fact of the matter is that men and women will always be different on some level, but that doesn’t mean that one gender is superior/inferior to the other.
On average, men are physically stronger than women, it’s always been men who’ve been in certain occupations such as construction and extremely demanding physical labor; it’s men who go to WAR and fight for their country (for the stupidest reasons imaginable).
It’s because of men that we have roads to drive our cars on, concrete buildings to work-live-and-sleep in, not to mention the countless ingenious and materialistic inventions/innovations from the dawn of civilization. Have you ever considered why it’s been this way?
It’s because our brains are structured differently. The early research from neuroscience indicates that men and women have differences in the neurological structure of specific brain areas, so the fact of the matter is that men will always have an advantage in certain occupations, and the same goes for women.
It’s nothing discriminatory, it’s just BIOLOGICAL, and you don’t mess with science.
Instead of playing to our weaknesses, we need to play to our strengths.
Instead of fighting against nature, we need to align with nature.
The whole reason why society, the earth, humanity is so FUCKED up in today’s world is because of the previous 2 sentences.
Once more and more people start to wake up and acknowledge the FACTS and what the scientific/objective truth of being human really means, then just maybe we might be able to evolve into a better society. Lastly, the only way that the “gender rights movement” will ever be successful is when we move from a mentality of competition – “us vs them, men vs women” – to one of cooperation – “we’re all in this together, men and women working together in spite of our differences – helping each other out to build a better world”.
