The woman-haters who have their knickers in a twist over the new and brilliant book by the leading feminist philosopher of our times Elisabeth Badinter have now come up with a new way of discrediting her. Since they are too stupid and lazy to read her book and too intellectually impotent to argue with the points she makes, they now claim that Badinter is old and why do we need to listen to the opinions of an old woman anyways? Besides, she is rich. A rich old woman, what can she know about feminism?
Don’t believe me? Then see for yourself. One of such ageist freakazoids left a comment on my blog claiming that Badinter is too old to have opinions worth listening to. Ageism always makes me absolutely livid. Useless losers who have achieved nothing in life are the only people who hold their youth as some sort of a major qualification that makes their stupid opinions count more than anybody else’s.
The idea that women lose all value once they are past the age of fertility has been one of the biggest weapons of women-haters anywhere. This is precisely why the woman-hating commenter who dared to promote her vile hateful rantings on my blog claims that since Badinter is too old to have children, she cannot possibly be capable of writing a book of feminist analysis.
I just visited the Amazon’s page of Badinter’s The Conflict and the ratings are very low. There is no doubt in my mind that most of those reviews have been left by brainless idiots who haven’t read the book and who are alarmed by the rumors spread by naturalists who promote women’s enslavement. I think it’s a good sign that the book is provoking so much rage. It means that Badinter is right and that the woman-haters are threatened by her message.
