Feminism has poisoned womanhood and the tragedy is so few women see it because they have exchanged their birthright for the appearance of power so they think they are better off.
I am well aware that in making such a comment many people will dismiss me as a reactionary old bigot. It might also seem an ungallant thing to say, though I would say it is precisely the opposite since it seeks to defend femininity against the contemporary assault on it. But, anyway, I am not condemning women for feminism. There is a case to be made that they are the chief victims of it and, whatever its apparent material benefits for them, it is also spiritually disastrous in that it encourages pride, egotism and the rejection of nature.
The real question, though, is why did feminism arise, and I would point to two principal causes. It is no coincidence that the female rebellion against the male followed the male rebellion against God. When the order of being starts to be overturned from the top then anything goes. If you take away the foundation of truth then truth will crumble. The rest of the building will start to fall down.
The second factor behind the rise of feminism was the irresponsibility of men. If they had honoured and respected women as women, and, while not wanting to dominate, remained true to their masculine role as leader, then women would not have reacted against womanhood.
In making these claims it should not be overlooked that feminism is also, in part, connected to the rise of self-awareness and the (necessary) development in the human being of greater individual agency. From this perspective, it is a good thing and a sign of progress. But it was derailed early on and led away from the direction in which it should have gone to one quite different. Even so the fact that there is an evolutionary good in it (and there is, it's not wholly wrong) should not blind us to the reality that this good has been hijacked and corrupted.
You are born male or female but you have to become a man or a woman. These are archetypal roles which have their lower and higher expressions ranging from biological to spiritual. Neither sex is currently fulfilling that task as it should because neither sex sees itself in the light of God. Consequently, each looks for material and personal self-fulfillment, and that alone. But men and women can only reach their proper potential and manifest their true being when they turn to God. Unfortunately we have first rejected the Creator and then rejected the natural order that he created. Feminism is a betrayal of the true feminine because it seeks to remake one sex according to the template of the other. Like many falsehoods today it justifies itself by the dogma of equality but God did not make men and women equal. He made them men and women, and our task must be to find full and proper expression as a man or woman. If one sex tries to imitate the other, the whole balance of nature is lost.
Satan knows that if he can corrupt women men will follow. He's done this before and he is using the same tactics now. On the first occasion the man was weak and betrayed the trust placed in him by his Maker. Unfortunately, it looks as though that is happening again. The answer is not for the male to assert himself in a domineering or aggressive way but for him to refuse the lie on the one hand and uphold the reality of God on the other. Harmony can only be restored when the foundation of all truth and reality is recognized and given its rightful place.
