Feminism, just Another Branch of Liberalism I

Feminism, just Another Branch of Liberalism I

Feminism is simply Liberalism as it applies to the lives of women. When Liberalism applies to the lives of men, or the lives of both men and women it’s simply called Liberalism. 

Yes, Feminism is a sexist word. 

But I don’t have that much of a problem with sexist words because I’m not a Liberal and I think there are much more important things to worry about.

 Feminism is to be quite frank remarkable, it is both one of the most successful and at the same time the most controversial aspect of Liberalism. How can it be that something that even many successful business women, women who owe a good portion of their success to Feminism, don’t want to be associated with. How can something that toxic be so successful? 

The answer is that it provided answers within Liberalism that Liberalism didn’t even know it needed answers too. If men are to be autonomist individuals what about women? It’s a perfectly good question, but Liberalism had never asked it, it had toyed with the idea but that’s all. Feminism gave Liberalism the question and the answer all at the same time, women will also be autonomist individuals. Liberalism loved it, there were many who felt that women held men back from achieving autonomy, that they were too traditional. 

Not any more, now women were in the vanguard of Liberalism, for the first time.
