Last night, October 2, I was on another blog trading comments. A feminist joins in and starts getting insulting. Ignoring the insults, I continued to talk with her. After a comment, she took it private. What all the fuss was about was that she could not accept that the assortive mating model was dead. For those of us, sitting here, this has to be as plain as the nose on your face but she couldn’t accept it.
I think that feminism has a big problem with this. If they can be accused of killing assortive mating, they can be accused of disempowering women by reducing their options. At this point, with unrestrained hypergamy, which I also blame on them for liberating, it is beginning to look like the best women will find are short term relationships with men out of their league. So much for family formation as an option for women.
If women start seeing feminism as a negative to their advancement, they will have no compunction about dropping it like a hot potato. Feminism is weak on this point.
We may be at a crossroads. We really don’t know feminism’s intentions, although we can guess. While we are certain that they hate men, they may have no affection for women either.
