Open Letter to Feminism
Feminism, after 42 years of living in the society you have created I have a few bones of contention to pick with you. You told me as a youth to forget the 25 year loving relationship my parents had as a role model and be my own "independent woman". You told me a career would bring me more happiness and fulfillment than a man ever would.
You told me my Mother was a "weak submissive" woman to my Father because she obeyed his rules and dedicated her life to caring for him. But how come my "stupid" Mother is the envy of the majority of women we know because she is one of the few who lived a life full of love and comfort?
As a youth I had many sexual relationships with men because you taught me that I was "empowered" when I exercised my "right" to pick and choose my partners. But you failed to inform me that once a man got what he wanted so easily he would take off and leave me with the memories of the precious pieces I gave of myself away.
You told me that those feelings of being used and sexuality being precious was only a result of the patriarchal conditioning I received. That I would be certain it was only a result of propaganda and not an inner truth if only I informed myself enough on the history of the world. It has now been 30 years since I first had sex and I have a Masters degree in the study of the ultimate patriarchy: religion, but those feelings never did leave me. I was lucky though, at least I never got an STD like my other "empowered sisters" got while exercising their "right".
Feminism, you told me that I was equal to a man. But you forgot to acknowledge that nature has equipped me with the ability to gestate, labor, breast feed and child rear which can leave me dependent on a male at some points in my life. You never addressed how my lesser upper body strength leaves me a sad match in protecting myself and young. You never informed me that my less developed eye sight leaves me a weak hunter.
Feminism, you told me that my desire to keep strong social ties centered around the hearth was mere clap-trap. But pschiatrists and psychologists now have evidence to prove you otherwise.
Feminism, you made me feel ashamed and needy for having secret thoughts about making a family just like my parents had, you told me I was a "traitor" to the cause because I just couldn't understand how my Father, who I seen work three jobs for 60 hours a week to feed his family was "repressing us all".
Feminism, you told me that I am "weak" unless I go out and slaughter the bacon, come home and cook it and clean up afterwards no matter how tired or unequipped I may be. You told me I was "stupid" when I expressed the desire to have a mate that would perform the slaughtering function because I thought he was genetically better suited to it than I. You told me I was "nor smart" because I admitted to liking decorating, sewing and cooking more than factory work.
