From The Times;-
‘This week, as you may have heard, four thin women will be overpaid, oversexed and overbalancing on their expensive shoes on the silver screen. The calorie-free cinematic confection that will be the Sex and the City movie may well go unwatched by me, but I see no harm in it. It is, after all, only a story. What I do squirm at is the idea that these women represent liberated womanhood. I thought that there was a little more to it than that. Is Carrie Bradshaw a feminist? Come to that, am I?’
More confusion from yet another woman who mistakes a piece of fictional entertainment about clothing and promiscuity as a life creed!
Feminism is full of confusing and contradictory messages, such as ‘gender is a social construct’ (zoologists may disagree) , ‘sexual power equals social power’ (which many take as the central message of ‘Sex And The City’) and ‘statistically, men oppress women by..’ (who is conducting the study, and under what conditions?) .
However, one telling fact about feminism is a complete unwillingness to critically examine or allow examination of these ideas.
Surely not because the goal of feminism is demonisation and marginalisation of men at the expense of openness?
Feminism purports to concern itself only with equality – but in reality propagates mistrust, tension and hatred between the sexes.
