How many women, if they really understood Feminism, would really support it? Now and throughout history?
There are those that are true believers, ones that to their core have the Feminism DNA. Then there are the would-be exploiters; the ones that understand what Feminism really is, and use it to for their nefarious goals.
Finally, there are the Useful Idiots. Some history,
UsefulIdiot. UsefulIdiots is a pungent phrase usually attributed to Lenin. They are driven by Pathological Altruism, believing that they know how to run our lives better than us and believing the Western Guilt stories. Some qualify as members of the Lunatic Fringe.
Huge swaths of women feminists (and male feminists also) believe all that they are told about feminism. Oddly enough, the reality that they see on the ground does not affect their view. even it it is contradictory toward it. There must be something powerful here to do so, or perhaps it might be explained a just an effective exploitive trick.
Are women especially prone to becoming useful idiots? Perhaps being a fella makes me prejudiced to say yes. Is their herd instinct a factor? Or could it be because they want to fit in socially with the in-group, with Feminism being that in-group? Or maybe I am all wet? What do you think?
