"I am most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of “Women’s Rights,” with all its attendent horrors, on which her poor feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feelings and propriety. Feminists ought to get a good whipping. Were woman to “unsex” themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen and digusting of begins and would surely perish without male protection.I love peace and quiet, I hate politics and turmoil. We women are not made for governing, and if we are good women, we must dislike these masculine occupations."
Personally I agree. I’d rather just be a woman than a feminist. Being a woman doesn’t mean you are dependent on men, weak, or unable to be something great. But feminism strips women of their femininity and the very things that makes us women. We are different, and we should be proud of that. :-)(via yammeringmuse) [Hear! Hear!]
