As A Mother Of A Son, Kellyanne Conway Gets Why Feminism Has Become Toxic

Article here. Excerpt:

'All women in public life have to answer the question, “Are you a feminist?” After becoming the first female campaign manager to win a U.S. presidential campaign, Kellyanne Conway drew that question in an interview with the Washington Post:

`You don’t consider yourself a feminist?

I don’t consider myself a feminist. I think my generation isn’t a big fan of labels. My favorite label is mommy. I feel like the feminist movement has been hijacked by the pro-abortion movement or the anti-male sentiments that you read in some of their propaganda and writings. I’m not anti-male. One does not need to be pro-female and call yourself a feminist, when with it comes that whole anti-male culture where we want young boys to sit down and shut up in the classroom. And we have all of these commercials that show what a feckless boob the man in the house is. That’s not the way I see the men in my life, most especially my 12-year-old son. I consider myself a postfeminist. I consider myself one of those women who is a product of her choices, not a victim of her circumstances.`

Her answer is typical from Gen X women who refuse to call themselves feminists, and I’ll wager a dime that most of those objections will center on women seeing themselves as products of their choices, not victims of their circumstances.
...
Like Conway, I have a son and three daughters. My son is 13 and thus Conway and I have seen what boys endure in today’s society. Feminism as currently practiced lies to us and our daughters, telling us that our worth is tied to our career and our sex life. But it tells our sons they are worthless.

These realizations sneak up on us. When we have our baby sons in our arms, we do not connect that all those horrible things feminists say about men apply to our tiny sweet bundle. The first whispers start in nursery school. The need to have day care mean something more than child minding has sprouted testing for all manner of things, from scissor skills to sight reading. General rambunctiousness or later verbal and fine motor skills common in males mean that the boys fall behind before they even really start school.'

IMO, Kellyanne Conway is a rock star!

Feminists don't want pro-life women in their group. Just recently pro-life women were un-invited to the "woman's march". Abortion is their number one issue. Not just to be okay or neutral with abortion in certain situations, but you need to support it 100% which means "on demand" for any reason, at any duration of the pregnancy and for as many pregnancies that a woman chooses to abort. Any slight ounce of shame or judgement to such a woman is not tolerated in their sick group.

Ditto to Kris

And one other thing: they want taxpayers to pay for abortions.

All I have to say:

In the famous words of Stewie from Family Guy,
"Wow! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!"

Gotta love Kellyanne! She's a victor, not a victim!
