I was tempted at first to just go ahead and post on the Women Only thread abot Feminism and Libertarianism, you see I consider mysef a civil libertarian and I don't particularly like being told what to do, it comes with the turf. I particularly hate the arrogant tone when lefties are the ones doing the limiting of debate, silencing of voices or censorship.
I'm a man so my goodness how can I know the struggle of women? When I was raised by a woman, one who could be tough as nails. She was union organizer, and worked in factory, she was 1970s feminist of the Norma Rae variety meaning that she actually did the heavy lifting while the folks at University on their parents dime talked the talk. She would have never identified as a feminist but she exemplified what a strong independent woman could be like.
I'm also a father of three daughters. Independent thinkers all. I don't think they would like be pegged into a category or being told who they could or could not talk with. Libertarian isn't a dirty word to any of them. They know as I do that being a libertarian does not mean that one must subscribe to free market capitalism.
The funny thing about feminists since the 1980s is that they have often found themselves on the same team as evangelical Christians, as they take up their moral crusades. In the 1980s and 90s they joined the bible banging crowd in campaigns for decency. They have also at times been champions of law and orders measures and most recently groups like E. Fry have come out against the Supreme court Siding with Conservatives on the morality of Prostitution.
Common sense tells me that if I showed up to a rally for any cause, you name it, and the meeting looked a gathering of Campaign Life, I would likely realize that I may on the wrong side of the issue.
If anyone over in the women only thread wants to meet a real feminist I will introduce you to my mom, she's almost 81 now, but as fiesty as when she was in her 30s. Be warned however she had two sons as well as a daughter, and she likely would see through your mumbo jumbo, she heard her share of doublespeak from the bosses in her day, and she is apt to tell you straight up!
