GENERAL DISCUSSION - (Not related to Poland) » General Archive » Feminism
There is one CDU politikerin (politician) who is against feminism, because she defends
the rights of Housewives, and finds that the Feminists attacked the houswife.
Another women, is a leftwing German journalist and Feminist from the first hour (sixtees or seventees) of the second Feminist wave. The third is a very elegant, beautiful mature Germans actress. who acknowledges the achievements of the feminist movement, but said that she disliked the attacks on men in the seventees, and tradtional women.
Than there is a very handsome young slender German women (with English) roots, who
had a very radical feminist mother, who had six children from six differant men, a man was in her eyes only for reproduction. Her daughter is very Feminist too, but in a modern
way, she hates the sexism of her granddad and men, but is less radical than her mother.
I remember that there was contempt and a certain hatred for men in the radical versions of the Feminist movement in the seventees and early eightees.
Men were seen as Neanderthals, uncivilized monkeys who were rust in their Patriarchal
attitude, abuse of Power and women, by the opression, agression and old fashionate role patterns they maintained. In the Netherlands you had radical Socialist Feminist organisations like the "Man Vrouw Maatschappij" (Man-Woman Society), and Dolle Mina ( a quite funny feminist organisation of young women, who undertook funny actions, like whistle to men, and the "Boss in my own Belly" Free-choise actions).
In the end of the seventees there was a radical version of Feminism which was the Lesbian feminism. Ofcourse the discussion on the ARD has become very tense, the feminist women and the German male scientist (gender researcher) fiercly disagree.
The CDU politician takes the middle road, but has her objections agianst Feminism,
because it's effect on the relation between the sexes.
She says that she blames Feminists that they blamed the children for their problems,
and the Feminists say that the men did not take their responsabilities for rasining the children. It is interesting to follow this as an outsider, bachelor, and somebody who is interested in recent history, and German recent history too.
(I love German television, because of the quality of it's programs [like the BBC]).
