Skip to comments.My Sister Kate: The Destructive Feminist Legacy of Kate Millett
Posted on 02/13/2018 1:07:50 PM PST by digger48
Feminist icon Kate Millett passed away recently in Paris at the age of 82. Her 1970 book Sexual Politics, called the Bible of Womens Liberation by the New York Times, had a seismic effect on feminist thought and launched Millett as what the Times called a defining architect of second-wave feminism. In a cover story that same year, TIME magazine crowned her the Mao Tse-tung of Womens Liberation. Fellow feminist Andrea Dworkin said that Millett woke up a sleeping world.
Kates sister Mallory, a CFO for several corporations, resides in New York City with her husband of over twenty years.In a riveting article from a few years back bluntly titled, Marxist Feminisms Ruined Lives, Mallory revealed what she saw of the subversive undercurrent of her sisters passionate radicalism.
Asked for her thoughts on Kates legacy, Mallory shared her very personal responses, which follow.
Mark Tapson: Your sister was an icon of female empowerment, but what do you think the reality of feminism has been for generations of women since Kate helped launch the second wave of the movement?
Mallory Millett: How bizarre it is to have to argue the obvious; to have to prove over and over again what is self-evident so let me be as offensive as I possibly can: Men are men and women are women. They are essentially different and designed for a natural division of labor. Period.
I get a kick out of the feminists love affair with the word empowerment. They have clever formulas for ensnaring hapless souls into their deceits. One of their slicker moves is to create a vocabulary designed to get around long-held beliefs, mores, taboos or fears. Pro-choice is their Newspeak euphemism for the casual murder of an human being; Dreamers means illegal immigrants; Progressives denotes a group dragging us back to the cave; Sanctuary City means a place where no actual US citizen is safe. This empowerment thing makes me especially crazy.
And by "mental instability", I mean the woman who forced "Womens Studies" onto the college campus was just plain BAT SH*T CRAY CRAY
Read the whole thing at the link.
jaw-dropping, to say the least
In a cover story that same year, TIME magazine crowned her the Mao Tse-tung of Womens Liberation.
Maybe I’m missing something, but was it supposed to be laudatory, a compliment, to compare her to Chairman Mao????
this is awesome!
There seem to be a lot more people telling it like it is, and getting an audience. I’m thinking Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson, and now this woman, just to name a few.
And if you’ve not seen the documentary, The Red Pill, it is a MUST SEE.
Thanks. Guess I missed it while I was at work that day.
Feminism at its core is an anti fertility cult.
Every word is true and valuable.
“Search” wasn’t at work that day.
For Time magazine? Absolutely meant as a compliment.
How would I know what to search for if I hadn’t seen it somewhere else today?
So you can’t search for a title before you post it?
You know.. the whole title.. searched under “titles”?
It isn’t hard, I obviously did it.
Well, it sure looks like I wasn’t the only one to miss it the other day.
“Why, the facts scream that feminists are two generations of the worst-ever educators of Americas children.”
Just another reason to abandon the word “feminist” in favor of the more accurate “shit goblin.”
Neither missing nor seeing it the other day has anything to do with the search function.
I really never heard of her and I was all in during the 70s.
isn’t it time for your nap?
My nap has nothing to do with your failure or inability to use “search”.
What do you think it’s for? Decoration?
