F is for Fanaticism

One of the best articles that speaks out against the lie that is Feminism I've ever is the absolute rejection of the feminist ideology by a daughter of the famous and influential feminist, Alice Walker.

How my mother's fanatical views tore us apart

by Rebecca Walker

The truth is that I very nearly missed out on becoming a mother - thanks to being brought up by a rabid feminist who thought motherhood was about the worst thing that could happen to a woman.

You see, my mum taught me that children enslave women. I grew up believing that children are millstones around your neck, and the idea that motherhood can make you blissfully happy is a complete fairytale.

Family love? A young Rebecca with her parents

In fact, having a child has been the most rewarding experience of my life. Far from 'enslaving' me, three-and-a-half-year-old Tenzin has opened my world. My only regret is that I discovered the joys of motherhood so late - I have been trying for a second child for two years, but so far with no luck.

I was raised to believe that women need men like a fish needs a bicycle. But I strongly feel children need two parents and the thought of raising Tenzin without my partner, Glen, 52, would be terrifying.

As the child of divorced parents, I know only too well the painful consequences of being brought up in those circumstances. Feminism has much to answer for denigrating men and encouraging women to seek independence whatever the cost to their families.

That's about as damning an indictment you can get...a leading feminist icon, who indoctrinated her daughter from birth in her fanatical ideology, and was ultimately rejected when her daughter saw through the lies and discovered the truth.

Read the whole thing.
