So that steaming pile of crap named Rush Limbaugh thinks feminism was created to give unattractive women access to mainstream society.
Who knows if he believes it or not? He's not in the truth business - he's in the ratings business. He stopped being relevant a long time ago.
Feminism is pretty simple. I'm surprised that so many people are confused. Feminism is predicated on the idea that women should have equality, with the full rights and responsibilities of other adult humans (also known as men). Easy, right? Why do people make it so hard?
But here are the facts, cats and kittens - I have said it before, and I will say it again: feminism is a proven good. It is proven because wherever women have greater equality, life is better for everyone. People are healthier, wealthier, live longer and have better quality of life. The more equality = better life. Not just for women. For men and children and intersex people, too. Everyone.
It's a direct correlation with very few exceptions (you can try to name some. Get busy). If you want a country to have higher rates of literacy, increase women's equality. If you want them to be more productive, increase women's equality. If you want to end disease, increase women's equality.
It would seem like any dunderhead could figure that holding down half the population would hold the society down in general, but apparently idiots like Rush and his followers can't parse that. Maybe they'd be happier in a country with less equality. Do you think we can get them to head for Afghanistan?
