I am not a licensed psychologist, nor do I play one on TV. but that isn’t going to stop me. Let us first consider feminism. It has lots of contradictions that just go against what makes sense in a rational world. Furthermore, it has truths that push hard against what women really want, stuff that comes from deep inside. Feminism Inc. really drive their propaganda home with a never relenting campaign. In the end, women behave as they are supposed to, leading to less than optimal situations for themselves and everybody around them.
So the above is due to just their prescribed behavior. Is there more? Perhaps there is. In order to maintain their feminist positions in their mind, they have to work hard against the forces of rationality and some of their innate desires. This effort takes its toll. It can lad to frustration, and probably lots of other things that one might classify as nutty behaviors. This is cognitive dissonance at work.
So not only do we have the poor results from following the feminist rules, we have possible nutty behavior on top of it. This just plain isn’t good.
Fast-forward to today and the struggle against the Chinese Virus. Perhaps many of those who are panicking, acting nutty, are those who have had lots of practice in implementing cognitive dissonance. This means you, feminists. I am thinking that the sturdy farmwife of old, like my grandmother who ran a household in the middle of nowhere with not electricity or running water, would not be handling things much better than many today. In short, cognitive dissonance was not a luxury that they could afford.
