First off I would like to point out the feminism manifests itself in ways that are opposite to how the female brain in hardwired to interact with the world. For example, in relationships it is said the women have to become unattainable, a prize to be won if you will. When they do this they try to be ambitious and create a life for themselves without men, and when a decent man comes along, they refuse to relinquish their power over to him. While women may feel empowered by behaving this way they will naturally try to keep chasing the high of wanting more power, but at what expesnse? Happiness. They will chase their materialistic desires to no end, but will not be able to feel feminine in the process, driving them to end their relationships, marriages, and instead crave attention and nothing more. What does this have to do with the family? Everything! The foundation of the family is the mother and the father. If their relationship is in turmoil the family will be utterly ruined, and as the children grow older they will be filled with insecurity and a constant need to find validation from others that otherwise may have been fulfilled by their parents at a younger age. If a woman cannot relinquish her power in a relationship she will move into her "mommy mode" or maternal instinct mode. In other words, she will treat her husband as if she is his mother. The other downside to feminism is that it installs the idea of "male guilt" into the minds of men, so as to soften their tendencies for assertiveness, a dominant masculine quality in exchange for more feminine wiles such as: seeking validation, giving flowers and gifts in exchange for affection, chasing women, and feeling that certain women are off limits or have intrinsic high value then himself. It is these things that also allow men to potentially become abusive, needy, controlling, servile and stalkerish, argumentative. Then, if you mix this complicated dynamic together and you will have an environment that is not suitable for children to be raised in. As these children grow older they will only perpetuate the warped views of gender roles and further decay the family, and like a malignant cancer these ideas will spread to generations and eventually the family will be in ruins. BUT if we push back against this movement and reform society, then the family will rise again.
Feminism teaches the false belief that women are "oppressed" today and this leads them to dislike males, which is a big reason why you have wives and women who criticize you 24/7. Also even if women were oppressed in the past, this doesn't mean that women are allowed to punish men for it who weren't even born in those times were women were oppressed.
Feminism has rendered men redundant and created a society of narcistic, egotistical women educated to believe they are right about everything and men are just a bunch of Homer Simpson like clowns there to serve them and for them to use in every way available. Male values of structure and discipline have vanished leaving broken nations of single mothers and depressed fathers with out of control children. Women abuse their positions just as much as men and court the attentions of bad boys and the biggest thugs going, to whom they always seem so attracted, to clime every ladder they can find. Boys are taught to believe they have nothing to contribute to the family, a view reinforced by poisonous politicians like Harriet Harman who believe things like enforcing laws requiring fathers' names to be entered on birth cirtificates, "May tar children with bad fathers." Statements like this are so hyocritical and prejudiced as for it to be unreal. Feminism rejects concepts of natural order and instinct in favour of ideas about how blokes socially engineered society to oppress women. In doing this they project onto the male sex the solidarity which exists between women where in fact this doesn't exist because most blokes are so sexually entranced by their girlfriends as to be blinded into thinking she's as fabulous as she thinks she is. Fortunately feminism will eventually fail because as more men grow up surrounded by women, who have rejected their men as being surplus to their needs and abit of an anchor, they will become disentranced with them and learn solidarity between males. Men will entirely reject the sexual allure of women and increasingly ignore them, both sexually and personally, feminism will intensify as a result and the cycle will continue until the whole situation becomes so utterly unsatisfactory that some entirely new force will take over. I think that force is already among us.
The vast majority of men want equal rights for women and in my opinion they have them. It is now just a case of women trying to get one up on men and trying to use the fact they are women to get places easier and quicker than a man can. It's like every household now has a running battle between the sexes. What is wrong with a women making dinner for her family, what is wrong with a women looking after the home why the husband works. You think working all the time is fun, you think men really want to be away from there family most of the day and then come home to get it in the ear about doing the housework. Why would a wife and a mother not want to do that for her family?
When the family don't have time to sit on the table made by their mother where they can compliment her on the food she done. When a child is raised by a nanny. When the family does not see each other more often. When the mother is paid more than the father. When the father is jobless. After all this, all I can say is good bye family.
Too often people don't understand feminism as what it truly is; this threatens families greatly. Many women believe that by refusing to take care of children in the house they are more powerful and that to ask them to do so denies them to fulfill their rights. In the past feminism has done much good for women in society of today but so called feminists must be well informed of the ideals. I believe feminism is unnecessary in today's society and since misunderstood, it threatens the health of families.
I don't know of many people who disagree with feminism IN THEORY. In theory, feminism is about equality for everyone, from the female perspective. The reality, however, is far from the sales pitch. Feminists demonize all men for the actions of a few and EVERYTHING is offensive to them. Feminists hate men and they hate women who do not hate men. This is what I call a hate movement.
The feminist triumph of kicking fathers to the proverbial curbside left that role to be filled by big govt and big business OT1H, while leaving the kids to grow up in single-mother families OTOH. In that environment, the boys learn that nothing will be expected from them except to go out and nail some chick; while the girls learn the exact opposite lesson.
The predictable results have been men underachieving and becoming incompetent and disruptive; and overachieving superwomen embracing a malignant ideology. Those women, of course, don't make women like me more equal to anyone else. The ascent of feminism has paralelled the ascent of corporate dictatorship in virtual lockstep, and this is no accident.
Feminism convinced women to work, pay taxes, divorce, have babies out of wedlock, have sex with as many men as possible, and spend as much money as possible. Feminism convinced women that these things were good for them. Where feminism is powerful, the family has been destroyed, marriage is on the decline, birth rates are plummeting and mass immigration is being used to prop up replacement rates. Where feminism is powerful, there are calls for the gendercide of men. Feminism is fascism.
Feminists are liars, and cheats, and have no compunction for bending the truth. For their lies, half truths, intrigue, and innuendo, they should be exposed as the criminals and con-persons they are; arrested on-sight, and thrown in jail or shot outright for the generations of ruined relationships, failed marriages, ruined lives, and the huge fortunes of no-accountability child support payments they have forced people, (Mostly men) to pay.
Many people believe feminism is a movement against men and that it discredits their capabilities, When you think about it this way, it may have a potential to destroy certain families. Nevertheless, feminism is far from this notion. The movement was created to support women in society, to fight for the rights that were so long denied. By treating people fairly, feminism, when well understood and employed, should in fact promote family by helping wives and moms live a happier life.
This question suggests that family has to follow a specific structure. Therefore a change in that structure means that the family has been "destroyed". I disagree. I think this is another case of ego by the male or perhaps social/media influence of "the right kind of family". However way a child is raised, if the main points of morality get through then that family has been successful. It doesn't matter if it is a Patriarchal or Matriarchal family structure or even if the woman is the only one in the family raising the children.
The way we view family, and living situations have changed from culture to culture and century to century. Feminism has helped redefine the family of today, but it hasn't destroyed it. Women deserve the right to work, and do all the same things as men. However, children must be looked after. More stay at home dads are emerging, and that's not a bad thing. Families get to choose what works best for them. They also get to choose what the idea of family means to them. Family is not a one-size-fits-all cookie cutter!
Feminism has expanded what a family does, it hasn't destroyed it. Households don't fall apart because mom has a job. Sure, some roles aren't what they traditionally used to be, but so what? It's changed things, that isn't the same as saying it's ruined them. Feminism has made gender roles adjust a little, not a bad thing.
