Blog: The Atheist Indian
Topic: Maybe India Needs Feminism After All
Date: May 7, 2012

My admittedly superficial thoughts on the matter of Feminism for countries that have not yet adopted it, is that basically it will end badly for any society that adopts it without some careful deliberation of what are desirable goals, what are not, and the determination of appropriate checks and balances within that framework.

There is nothing wrong with providing safety valves so that some individuals who wish to express themselves differently can do so, it is quite another to simultaneously coerce women as a whole into acting against their natural inclinations which have traditionally benefited any society, while simultaneously encouraging them towards acting on other aspects of their inclinations, which are destructive to the current social order, and which in the past were vigorously suppressed.

Feminism in the West has given every appearance so far, in not only throwing all of the toys out of the pram, but is also highly engaged with throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

You can I believe, make a successful argument that where Feminism has run aground in the West, is because it has been tightly coupled with aspects of Marxism where among other things, equality of outcome is the focus and the goal instead of equality of opportunity.

Wholesale adoption of Feminism within the current Western Marxist framework, has already had observable and dire social consequences which are still being played out. Examples abound in the UK, USA, and Sweden.

The first question that should be asked is, can your society absorb the costs of Feminism in it’s current format?

I have not given citations for any of my assertions (this is a comment, not an essay).

However, this is the age of the Internet and anyone can do their own research using nothing more than a search engine such as Google, and keywords such as Cultural Marxism, marriage, divorce, “man up” laddish etc. etc. etc. etc. and come to their own conclusions.
