Women to Crazed Feminists: We Will Fight You to Defend Our Men
Fallout from the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and the now-debunked allegations of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford has expanded the divide not only between Republicans and Democrats, but among women -- the very group Democrats hoped to motivate for this year’s midterms.
As I’ve covered the hearings and the circus surrounding them, I’ve heard a constant refrain -- conservative women are furious about the false allegations leveled against Kavanaugh. They resent the feminist call to believe the woman and thereby assume the man’s guilt simply because he is a member of the male collective.
Feminists have made a mistake assuming that they speak for all women. They don’t.
Many of us are mothers. We have sons whom we love and would defend to our last drop of blood.
We have husbands, fathers, brothers, and male friends we hold in high esteem. Kavanaugh referenced these relationships during his testimony when he pleaded with the committee to consider how they would respond if this happened to a man they loved.
Women across the country applauded, identifying more with Kavanaugh than Ford’s tearless, detached performance laced with inconsistencies, contradictions, and uncorroborated evidence.
Nothing captures the sentiment of these women like a video called “Moms for Kavanaugh,” released by CatholicVote, a civic action committee.
Feminist activists say they speak for all women, but as the Trump election proved and as time continues to show, this is not the case. Conservative and libertarian women see the feminist movement for what it is -- a quest for power and expansion of the state over individuals. This goal divides intimate relationships, making isolated individuals ripe for picking by a totalitarian state.
Feminism today isn’t about women’s rights. It’s about removing rights from the individual. It’s about judging people as a group instead of treating every human being as a single entity based on particular, not universal, circumstances.
Right-thinking women see this and reject it. They want no part of it because they value their relationships with men. They value individual rights and freedoms. They also recognize and are grateful that they live in a country in which their rights are protected by law and where women flourish.
The feminist movement protesting politicians, vandalizing homes, and donning pink pussy hats is large and loud. But not all women join them. Many women are busy working jobs, caring for their families, having babies, raising children, and going about their lives in quiet harmony -- lives that are disrupted only by the agitations of crazed harpies blaring from the television as they push an agenda that has nothing to do with women’s rights.
The unequal treatment and abuse feminists claim are so pervasive in society bear no relation to the daily experiences of women who are more concerned about creating and nourishing than destroying. They seek to conserve the principles of liberty that make our nation great, not transform it into an ideological nightmare.
