The gender feminists still don’t get it… Ever since Philip Wylie wrote his angry text on American “Momism” back in the thirties, various astute commentators, …have been saying that American children, and especially boys, need more patriarchy-in the best sense of that term-and not more “empowered” matriarchs. These children particularly need fathers who are…tough without being macho brutes, stern without being petty tyrants, and yes, affectionate-but on the whole, less nurturing than their wives.
I can write these heresies without fear of reprisal from the politically correct: I resigned long ago from the American Psychological Association, and at my age I no longer worry about building a career…
Thus, as we consider the new uniparental or bi-maternal parenting (for example: “Murphy Brown”/single mother households or lesbian couples) we have to evaluate not only the well-being, freedom, and rights of [the adults], but also the developmental requirements of the children that they presume to raise.
What is good for General Motors is not necessarily good for the country; and what feels good to new-style or homosexual mothers is not on that account necessarily good for their kids. Mother Nature may be female, but she is not … a feminist. She does not accredit parenting arrangements that flout her laws, even if they are promoted-in thunder-by a self-anointed Sisterhood.
