How do I know that feminism is evil? First, I was a feminist, until I awoke one day after having heard God’s voice and realized my error. Being somewhat younger than the original feminists of the 1960’s, I didn’t actually burn my bra, but my zeal for feminism was no less. I believed that God had given us feminism to straighten out the male psyche.
I competed with men wherever I could, to show them that women are their equals, or better. I’m a US Army veteran (clearly, soldiering is the domain of men) and an ordained Priest (not Priestess) of a religious group that accepts females as equals to males. Whatever a man could do, I could do better – and more! I could give birth and men could not. Therefore, I just knew that it must be true that God sanctioned feminism. I believed the lie!
But, the repeated and increasingly bad news headlines over the years made me begin to wonder how the world got into the shape it’s in. Haven’t you seen headlines like these?

These are just a few of the kinds of headlines we see or read daily. Feminism promised to fix these things. These were all problems that we had when feminism began. Yet, since the beginning of Women’s Liberation, these problems have gotten worse and have opened the doors for new problems to come in.
