A Rarely Voiced Perspective.

It’s not everyday that you read a criticism of feminism at all, let alone from a female.  While the blogger doesn’t directly confront feminist philosophy, or the traditional (religious?) philosophy either, it is implied in her arguments.  

As a male in his thirties I can’t say I couldn’t relate to her commentary, especially the near-non-existence of  positive, competent, virtuous male archetypes in media, as well as the issues she raises about establishing an identity, and how status informs relationships.

I was also very intrigued by her analysis of “reproductive currency”.  That is well worth further investigation, and is probably an essay in itself.  It is definitely an interesting lens to look at a culture through.

Do yourself a favor and read.
