Ask a young person today to name an independent powerful woman and 9 times out of 10 they will say Beyonce, not that feminist what's-her-name. In fact, there have been many popular, brave, sexy, powerful women from the 1970s to now, from TV's Wonder Woman to Cher to Madonna to Cindy Crawford to Angelina Jolie to FEMEN to Miley Cyrus. Yet modern intellectual feminists love to take credit for all the freedom women enjoy today. Since Gloria Steinem in the 1960s feminists have fought against the glamour industry and over the last 50 years women have gotten more free in general. But average women have also gotten more sexual & more free to be so. And the glamour industry has grown 10-fold. So one has to wonder, if feminism has failed so badly to destroy glamour, how could they have been the ones responsible for the average woman's new found freedoms? Could feminists really be such failures in one area but so brilliant in another? Feminists tell us sexual abuse of women has also risen dramatically but this begs the question of who has been spreading the idea all this time that sexual women should be kept down? Feminists have. After reason, female beauty is women's greatest power, and since the female intellect has been almost universally dedicated to attacking beauty for the last 50 years (from Gloria Steinem to Naomi Wolfe to NoMorePage3), one can only conclude that the thing that has been moving women forward during that time is female beauty, not feminism, and that the thing that has been making things worse for women, is feminism, not glamour. Feminists will tell you female beauty is responsible. But reason - and 20 seconds of thought - says it isn't.
