Modern-day feminism continues to fall on its face time and time again and it will continue to do that until a wiser generation wakes up and finally phases it out. With no exaggeration and no mincing of words, working in concert with several other mechanisms the “new” feminist agenda is slowly destroying our society.
Feminism in its purest intended form is all about gender equality. It used to have a more conspicuous purpose and respectable agenda. However, when put under a magnifying glass as a movement in this day and age, we see something different. Nowadays, the movement has been compromised and is pushing for more inequalities disguised as equality, unfair double standards, and societal androgyny. There are many forms of social engineering at work and many movements are subsidized from high places with ominous intentions. The resurgence of the women’s liberation movement got a little help from high places. Consequently, many people who probably mean well are being co-opted to support movements that will only cause more division and confusion, which is the intention that they are not aware of. Many people are oblivious to the plans that the elite have in store for society. And unbeknownst to many, elite societies secretly bank roll and popularize some of these movements in order to fulfill agendas that are way over most people’s heads.
I refer to today’s feminist movement as “modern-day feminism” because there is a considerable difference between modern-feminism and the feminist movement of old. In the 1800s, feminism had a very understandable directive and obstacles to hurdle. It was positioned to battle the vast inequalities between the genders including the right to vote. In it’s previous form the call for equality resonated with many. Modern feminism however, is quite different, quite confused and is searching for a stronghold. The talking points are beautiful and say one thing, but the results and societal effect say another.
To understand why this is happening, there are many things to consider. First of all, it’s important to understand that times are changing and many people are not interested in a traditional America. Socially things aren’t necessarily evolving, as in getting better, just changing. There are several people in same-sex unions who aren’t interested in the traditional social dynamic and gender roles that most men and women adhere to innately. There are more divisions and subdivisions than there have ever been. More than ever, many people are categorizing themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and social norms are changing. Consequently there is a powerful cultural dichotomy at play. Again, this isn’t social progression, just societal changes. So many people are fighting for gender-bending social identities and expectations. Coming with this is an erosion of traditional family units. So there are people who are more amenable to a traditional social structure clashing with people who feel differently. So this wave of feminism packs quite a status quo changing wallop we haven’t seen decades prior. We’re in a very bad place. What may not be well known is that this rapidly growing confusion and changing of social dynamics was called into effect by the elites a long time ago. Modern feminism is one of many mechanisms serving its intended purpose.
The truth is lots of people are trying to attach themselves to modern-day feminism because idealistically the talking points of feminism seem noble, but feminism was resurrected with bad intentions and it has an agenda. It’s a movement desperately looking for validation and a defining moment. Only that validation does not exist, so there were many attempts to fabricate it. The result is multiple very public fails.
Many of the faces of this modern-day feminist movement have been embarrassing themselves and are being exposed for varying manifestations of deception. A movement that can’t recruit a celebrity, well one that doesn’t eventually go up in flames should tell you something. Let’s take Taylor Swift for example sake. Swift has repeatedly made it known she is a feminist and became a spokeswoman of sorts for the movement many times over. And there were quite a few times where one could see something wasn’t quite right. One time was when Taylor and rapper Nicki Minaj had a quick back and forth. Nicki was taking shots at the MTV VMA nomination process that she feels phases out shapely women of color. Thinking it was all about her, Swift misinterpreted Nikki’s point and tweeted:
“@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..”
This is exactly what happens when you have fake public figures pushing agendas. They look for opportunities to inject their ideologies. This also has historical significance. This wouldn’t be the first time feminism attempted to divert women of color away from the Civil Rights Movement and African American concerns toward women’s rights concerns. Regardless, everyone was confused by Taylor’s response that didn’t quite address or get the issue. But the attempt at diverting the focus toward a “men vs women” dichotomy was loud and clear. Social media echoed the sentiments that Taylor was completely off. Social media also responded loud and clear in a bit of a backlash. Of course this was a flop, but we moved on. Not to worry, she had more failed moments ahead.
Taylor did lots of suspect things, including writing detailed songs about several of the men she dated which was ethically wrong. If a famous man had dished the dirt on all of his female exes, it most surely would be condemned. That’s another subject entirely.
Finally, Taylor Swift attempted to use Kanye West for her female empowerment platform. Almost everyone knows the story already, of how Kanye wrote a song with lines about Taylor, which rap artists can do if they feel like it, but he still called Taylor and told her about the song. In addition to a few other lines, he claimed that he “made that bitch famous”, referring to the infamous moment he grabbed the mic from her and told her that he’d let her finish, then paid homage to Beyonce. Taylor thanked him for contacting her, specifically told him he didn’t have to ask permission and that he could do what he wants, but she appreciated the heads up and gave the song the green light. However, when the song came out, she pretended to not know anything about the song, played the victim role and created a moment. Receiving an “Album of the Year” Grammy for her album 1989, she used the moment to play victim and throw Kanye West under the bus. The fake moment Swift was trying to create oozed with feminist propaganda. In her acceptance speech Swift again repeatedly referred to her gender and to women. Looking at the crowd like a proud heroine she began her speech saying,
“As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammy’s twice, I want to say to all the young women out there—there are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,”
Basically Swift tried to demonize West for her goal of making herself a feminist inspiration to young women. In contrast, her deviousness started a feud and of course, people were initially flocking to Taylor’s side over West. Then Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian had enough and blew Swift’s spot up by posting the recording of Swift and Kanye talking about the song. In the video Taylor was clearly laughing about the song and giving everything a thumbs up. The revelation that Swift is a liar sent social media into a frenzy.
Taylor tried to recover and say she was objecting to the “bitch” line of the song and many clueless fans sat there and drank that Kool aide, but most people with sense knew she just got caught and exposed. She lied and tried to create a moment subtly portraying Kanye as a male bully on the loose attacking this angel, when it was totally the other way around. The sneaky villain was clearly Taylor Swift. Taylor needed to sit down, cool it from overt feminist agendas, refrain from anymore orchestrated grandstanding and perhaps return her efforts to making music.
Lena Dunham has also failed several times making a public ass of herself trying to fuel feminist ideology. Lena Dunham embarrassed herself after NY Giants Wide Receiver Odell Beckham committed the crime of sitting next her at the Met Gala while young, attractive and black and didn’t hit on her or pay attention to her. The humanity. So then she invented a bunch of things Beckham never said and threw it out there hopefully for people to scoff at. It backfired. Speaking with Amy Schumer, Dunham said,
“I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards,” She continued,
“He was like, ‘That’s a marshmallow. That’s a child. That’s a dog.’ It wasn’t mean — he just seemed confused.”
It got worse. She proceeded to sexualize Beckham and put words in his mouth, and yes there was a huge backlash. Rightly so. This may be one of the symptoms of a mind on modern feminism for too long. The initial logic? A man minding his own business sitting next to her must have been doing several unspoken things wrong to devalue her as a woman; 3rd wave feminism at it’s finest. Regardless, Dunham apologized and denounced her statements.
Feminist Issues Pushed Through Media
Just like LGBT groups and several groups that grow in power, you begin to see the ripple effects of their money and lobbying power in several ways. These powerful groups begin to effect our culture in both positive and very negative ways. They become responsible for alleged “backlashes”, real and fake, and issues that are made into issues because these groups with lots of money say so. We began to see the hand of 3rd wave feminism at work as the issues below were peddled through media with origins unbeknownst to most. Some of those issues are as follows.
Through feminism, every so often you’d see more issues pop up seemingly gender specific and somewhat obnoxious. From news segments to subway ads, for a moment a lot of attention was mysteriously given to manspreading, or men sitting with their legs far apart on buses, trains and/or benches across the nation. Yes this made the evening news.
This was perhaps one of the more obvious “issues” that were really reaching. Yes, attention was brought against cat-calling. Talk about a movement in need of issues. There was even a viral video of a shapely girl walking through the city being greeted by men, and this was shown as a pervasive problem. It was also overtly racist and irresponsible featuring only men of color. No commentary needed and no this didn’t last very long.
- Wage inequality
Wage inequality is a fake issue. To the lives of most people who complain about it, it doesn’t exist. If you were to tally up the salaries of teachers, bus drivers and several miscellaneous jobs you’d learn there is no huge disparity between men and women whatsoever. However, there are male dominated industries like construction, carpentry, plumbing and so on, in which males get paid more on average. That’s because again, they are male dominated industries. Male dominated industries are mostly male by organic career choice and preference. And when an industry is dominated by males, then yes, males will earn more on average if you were to tally up the salaries. The disparity is basic common sense. Not because someone is sitting somewhere trying to low ball women. The belief that women get paid less for the same job with the same experience, skill set and ability to do the job at the same degree is a flat out lie.
Many modern feminist causes stand in the way of real issues with fake issues. For example, there is a very real racial wage inequality, in which people of color institutionally get paid less for the same jobs. This is an entirely different discussion with many other social factors to consider to explain this. But no, according to real statics women do not get paid less because they are women. Anyone to insist this is either lying or badly misinformed. Hollywood, for example, does not follow the same gender hiring payout patterns of the MTA. Feminist groups deliberately skewed the numbers, lumped everything together, deliberately left out all the variables that would explain disparities and ran with it to the media.

Men usually dominate most high positions in fortune 500 companies in general because well, quite frankly this used to be an expectation that never used to be an issue. Once upon a time in a distant past hard to remember anymore, women were usually more interested in building families. However, in a world that increasingly hates traditional societies or instinctive behavior, and instead of worrying about they’re own happiness, some adopting this new feminist mindset feel that women in general should be top earners owning or running companies statistically equal in number to men. Only problem with that is, this just may never happen. There are still way too many women, including women from different cultural backgrounds that aren’t trying to compete with men in that respect. Women also tend to put their children and family first in front of career. So the number of male dominated industries might always be higher and to somehow make everything “eve and steven” is an impossible fool’s errand, without decades of cultural social engineering of course. Women who believe there is a wage inequality issue are caught in another propagated delusion created by feminism.
- Domestic Violence
Feminism briefly took on the issue of domestic violence which one would assume is a good thing. Things kicked into high gear after the Ray Rice incident. Consequently they focused on the NFL. However, it quickly turned into a crowd-shaming initiative that didn’t seem like good work. In addition to that, a very unsettling coincidence became uncomfortably conspicuous. Nearly all of the domestic violence cases they chose to highlight to shame the offenders were cases that involved black male athletes and celebrities. When people began to notice this coincidence it started to come undone as people began to ask questions in other directions.
These groups had to explain the growing big fat baby elephant in the room, which was why it was excluding the cases of white male celebrities and yes, women. Soccer player Hope Solo, Liza Minelli and the cases of female abusers were being hidden, ignored and overlooked. One can assume that these feminist groups designing these campaigns had an agenda. And because there was an agenda bringing awareness to domestic violence brought a hornet’s nest of other problems threatening that agenda. Consequently, this led to a concerted effort of burying lots of cases involving women who instigate the violence, or women who are the abusers or women who lie about domestic violence. When they could no longer keep things to the cookie-cutter standard of what they wanted to rally against, which is “cruel man beats innocent and defenseless woman”, it was no longer self-serving to the movement. Soon it slowly receded out of mainstream focus.
This one was just plain stupid. Championed by Amber Rose, famous for being the ex girlfriend of rappers, this was a sign that we are truly in dark satanic times. Off shoots of feminist groups were fighting for their right to be sluts, like sex, or dress trashy and scantily clad without being judged or shamed for it. Anyone could be a floozy if they so choose, but these groups were demanding they somehow be also exempt from judgement and disdain too. The point was also made that men were looked at as cool players for getting a lot of women, but women were looked at negatively for getting around. Rose and others who share this ideology feel that the labeling of promiscuous women as sluts needs to be done away with. There isn’t much more that needs to be said. Society it’s on its way down hard and fast.
The True Origins of Modern Feminism Explained
Moving Forward From Feminism
To many social activists, this modern day feminism or third wave feminism is the furthest thing from a good thing. Deceased Hollywood producer turned activist Aaron Russo, once said that he befriended Nicholas Rockefeller who explained to him the true intentions of feminism. Aaron Russo’s powerful friend explained that feminism and the women’s liberation movement was supported and promoted into society by “the powers that be” because in addition to making it possible to tax all the people in a working society, it helps cause distraction, division and confusion. And distraction, division and confusion keeps the powerful, powerful and unseen in many ways the average joe simply doesn’t understand. Something like this would be read and thought to be interesting food for thought years ago. Nowadays, however, this seems more credible than ever because we can now see the socially engineered results.
The call to modern day, or 3rd wave feminism has many psychological ramifications to it. Everyone wants to live a life of purpose and meaning. People are also drawn to stories of heroism and overcoming oppression. Psychologically this sometimes sends people looking for battles and meaning in life. Sometimes this can lead us into traps. The powers that be know this about us very well and use it to their advantage. Consequently we are spiraling further into a loveless and divided society where everyone is splitting off into teams and is pitted against everyone else. Our family units are being completely demolished and women as individuals are now at war with their own men.
It’s time we as a people stop falling into all the traps laid before us and start living on a higher vibration. We are blinded from the spiritual war we are really in and we easily fall victim to distractions and things that pull humanity off its intended course toward balance and healing. They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. With that said, there are many people who are unhappy with themselves and unhappy with the world, and so gravitate toward things that speak to their emotions.
A healthy society that has more oneness, balance and love, has less subdivisions.The truth is that women are vitally important to any society. In many ways women are more important to societal progression than men. To a community a women’s role, actions and decisions are more significant than most understand. We need to have a culture that supports, respects, appreciates and understands the importance of our women. Our society needs the wisdom, strength and the guidance of our women, but perhaps not siphoned off to think only or primarily on behalf of women, and perhaps not quite like this. In short, women build nations, not more “hyphenations”.
