What This Election Means for Feminism

This presidential election marks the beginning of the end of modern feminism.  That is true regardless of whether Hillary or Trump wins.

Feminism is a fraud.  Women have never been "victims" in American life the way blacks were as slaves and in the Jim Crow South. 

Consider the evidence.  Women have more wealth in America per capita than men, and women spend much more of the national wealth than men.  Women live longer than men.  Women have never been drafted into grim combat in overseas wars.  Women are a much smaller percentage of the prison population and are much less likely to be victims of violence. 

Whatever the dubious merits of affirmative action for blacks, affirmative action for women was always a moral obscenity and a mockery of justice.  Affluent women like Hillary got favored treatment in admission to colleges and advancement in employment and almost everything else while poor white boys from blue-collar homes were sent to the back of the line. 

Donald Trump is, in many ways, the champion of those despised (or "deplored") men who do much of the hard and dirty work in our society and who receive for their efforts nothing but contempt and scorn.  When Trump utterly ignores political correctness demanded by feminism, he draws a line in the sand of American life, rejecting the self-pitying phony victimhood of feminists and giving them the same tough treatment he gives everyone else.

What that means if that if Trump wins the presidential election, the argument of feminists and other nabobs of political correctness will have been voted down by the American people.  The elitists who sternly warn of societal damnation if someone as blunt as Trump becomes president will be left sputtering and confused.

But what if Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton becomes president?  Is this feminist fraud she wears like a worn out coat then vindicated?  Not really.  She is as sure to fail at president as anyone in American history.  No one trusts her.  No one likes her.  No one really listens to her.  Her presidency would be as doomed as the Hindenburg or the Titanic

That would be bad for America, but it would be worse for feminism which, is already discredited in the eyes of most men and many women.  Hillary, a "one-trick pony" if there ever was one, will have no refuge from public scorn and contempt except to whine that if she were a man, she would not be treated so badly.  Hillary as a failed and wildly unpopular president would be final proof that feminism itself is a vile concoction whose sole purpose is to give miserable women an excuse to be miserable.

Obama, in a way, has done the same thing to those addicted to the dreary and endless gripe of black grievance.  Clearly America is not the racist nightmare that black civil rights hawkers have been telling us for the last fifty years.  Obama, after all, won election and re-election.  A large proportion of his cabinet and his advisers are black.  If the problems of black America were caused by the disempowerment of blacks, then the problems of black America should have been solved during the last eight years.

America is not "sexist" any more than it is "racist."  Feminism was always a dirty rhetorical trick used to make men feel guilty who had no real cause to feel that way.  Racism was real enough in America once, but half a century after civil rights legislation and affirmative action and indoctrination, blacks in America are in better shape in America and the West generally than blacks anywhere else on Earth.  The cries today of feminists and civil rights leaders sound to the ears of any parent like spoiled brats who inevitably fall back to the juvenile "That's not fair!" singsong whenever life demands of them the same difficulties that life demands of any grownup in our land. 

Feminists who do not give a damn about the horrific treatment of women in Islam or the women raped and assaulted by Hillary's husband are like the civil rights leaders content to let young blacks live lives of ghastly self-destruction.  It is high time that Americans give those who exploit imagined wrongs for their own personal the disdain that they so richly deserve.  This election will be a giant step in that direction.
