178. Problems With Feminism

I talked with the ladies from Freed From Feminism a few months back and wanted to revisit a few great parts of our conversation. In this conversation, we discussed a wide range of problems with feminism. So, I thought it would be good to revisit our chat and elaborate on some of those ideas. After you listen to this episode, if you’re interested in what they have to say you can check out the full interview here.

“Feminism is doomed to failure because it is based on an attempt to repeal and restructure human nature.”

Phyllis Schlafly

Some of the Problems with Feminism

The thrust of the argument for Theresa and Beth is that feminism is based on an idea that cannot stand. Women and men are inherently unequal. While that doesn’t mean women are more or less than men, it does mean there is difference between the sexes. However, feminism seeks to erase those differences, which inevitably leads to many problems and complications. Below, we’ll take a look at a couple of the problems with feminism that arise from this mistaken idea that men and women ought to be equal in all respects.

Feminism Doesn’t Actually Liberate Women

I think it is crucial to understand the spell that feminism has cast on our society. After that, we can begin to look at the particulars more closely. But, until we look at how feminism goes wrong in its assumptions, we cant dive into instances where this error plays out.

Where are the Fatherly Role Models?

Despite the need for good depictions of dads, we seem to get terrible images of fatherhood from our media. For example, Everybody Loves Raymond and Modern Family seem to do everything they can to portray the dads as blundering idiots. Rather than offering an accurate, yet comedic, look at a father, they feature caricatures of fatherhood.

Mothering is Full-Time Work

As someone who has worked full-time while in school, I can say I know what it means to be busy. But, I don’t know if that compares to the moms I know in my family. For those that work on top of being moms, I can say I don’t know how they do it. While I disagree with Beth and Theresa that all moms should be stay-at-home moms, I recognize it’s the best situation. I do think it could be good in some cases for women to have a job (not a career) and children or find some balance. Especially today when feminism is so ingrained, I think it’s good to take steps in the right direction. Ideally, however, moms would be full-time moms instead of balancing their family and career.

188. Finding Unity and Mending a Divided Nation Conversation of Our Generation

Our country is obviously divided, politically, culturally, and religiously. Despite living in the same country under the same laws, we have two separate nations in our country. In this episode, I'll discuss mending a divided nation and how we find unity amid all the chaos. How We're Divided We have divided ourselves in many ways across this country. We've separated ourselves into religious and secular, conservative and liberal, coastal and heartland, and in numerous other ways. With all of these differences, how can we even say we're one country? Discussions of secession come up on both sides of the political aisle, and many take it as an inevitability. What is dividing us? Mainstream Media, politicians, educational systems and numerous institutions seek to tear us apart instead of bringing us together. "Even if a unity of faith is not possible, a unity of love is." -Hans Urs von Balthasar Methods for Mending a Divided Nation I've spoken previously about what we need to come together, but I'm going to recap some of those thoughts. Basically, I think we need to first see each other as fellow human beings, fellow citizens. Rather than seeing political opponents as evil or vicious, we should see our friend or family member who holds those views in each person. We easily jump to conclusions about people instead of trying to understand them. So, if we are to have a healthy political and cultural life, we need to be able to discuss politics well. This means we have to know our own beliefs and biases, and discuss ideas with knowledge of our own potential pitfalls. We need to learn the lessons of the past and seek to mend and understand each other without wanting to dominate or control each other. — Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
