Christina Sommers: Who Stole Feminism?

July 20, 2014

From and interview with a real feminist…

The Millennials have been cheated out of a serious education by their Baby Boomer teachers. Call it a generational swindle. Even the best and brightest among the 20-somethings have been shortchanged. Instead of great books, they wasted a lot of time with third-rate political tracts and courses with titles like “Women Writers of the Oklahoma Panhandle.” Instead of spending their college years debating and challenging received ideas, they had to cope with speech codes and identity politics. College educated young women in the U.S. are arguably the most fortunate people in history; yet many of them have drunk deeply from the gender feminist Kool-Aid. Girls at Yale, Haverford and Swarthmore see themselves as oppressed. That is madness. And madness can only last so long. So, I plan to continue writing books and articles, making my Factual Feminist videos and lecturing at as many campuses and laws schools as I can. American colleges have been described as islands of repression in a sea of freedom. I want to encourage rebellion among the islanders.

So let’s face it – the idea of an objective unbiased news source was a myth all along. We have NEVER had an unbiased media, and if you’re watching the evening news on TV or reading a daily paper in the morning, you better know who’s doing the writing and what their political views are.

In light of that, I would much rather know the politics of a news source as a backdrop to their story. Reporters who DON’T exaggerate their political opponents score high marks – those that do are discounted accordingly.

Think about it – according to our unbiased press the greatest threat to modern feminism is Sarah Palin.

Regarding the status of women in the middle east, I’ll defer to this opinion:
