Today’s America is being overrun be people who believe in change, people who think that every individual should be brought up with the exact same conditions, no matter what their physical or psychological differences. People who use term “politically correct” whenever they perceive an injustice toward someone because of the orthodox way of life in America that has remained constant for decades. Now, these people, these feminists, want to change everything because they think people (more specifically, woman) have been getting the short-end of the stick for years. Now, these feminists are infiltrating our government, corporations and schools, slowly assimilating individuals into their group. The patriarchs of this society (that is those who believe things should stay as they are) are allowing this to happen because of fear of what the feminists might present against them.
Take for example a feminist female, who is climbing up the corporate ladder at a major corporation. She claims that because she is a woman, she is being held up by men in the corporation from advancing, even though they say that she has an equal opportunity to advance in the ranks of that corporation. She accuses the authoritative figures of acting on their sexism (which is by law illegal) and creates a fear factor among those in authority. She then gets promoted because of this fear, even if she does not deserve it. (Fr. Fischer)
This creates a multitude of problems. First, the company is shortchanged because of an insufficient and unprepared leader. Second, the people who deserve the positions loose hope, and don’t put forth all their effort. And finally, the subordinates under the poor leader do not perform with the best efficiency. It seems that even if the feminists did not coin the term “the squeaky wheel gets the oil” they surly live by it. (Captain Richard Leisenring)
The youth of our society is being brainwashed by the feminists. More specifically, boys are being taught to act like girls, learn like girls and play like girls in our schools. This may not be a conscious act of the schools, but the majority of elementary and middle school teachers are females and cannot help teaching female values to our youth. Whether they like it or not, they teach like a woman, and woman teach everything who they seem it to be easiest to understand. (Fr. Fischer)
However, it is often not the easiest way for the male “hard wiring” to understand.

- Feminism; the belief that women are and should be treated as potential intellectual equals and social equals to men. For centuries both women and men alike have banned together to eradicate and evolve societies sexist views towards females. Beginning as early as the eighteenth century feminist groups have worked to abolish the inequality and social indifferences of the sexes. Women for centuries have defied conforming to society’s unequal views towards them and have fought for basic human rights that are equal to men in their own ways through liberal, radical, ecofeminism, and multicultural and global feminism....

- The “Feminine Mystique” is a highly influential book in the early second wave feminism movement. It is said that it helped shaped the demands of the second wave by insisting for the right to work outside the home, and to be paid equally; the right for reproductive freedom; the demand that women should not be expected to have children and be mothers if they do not want to. Betty Friedan addresses “the problem that has no name” which is the women who are highly educated, suburban housewives that are bored and want something “more” in their life....

- Where did some of modern America's issues originate from. The answer to that is the Progressive Era. The Legislation of that era laid all of the groundwork for today, and much of it is still in public debate today. Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson, three of the presidents from that era, all played roles in the groundwork. These presidents passed acts, tariffs, and amendments that are still with us, and debated today. The Progressive mind was run by the needs for reform. Reform was run mainly by women, who started feminism; a term meaning freedom for full person development.... [tags: American History]

- Throughout the waves of liberal feminism, there is a new characteristic to be associated with the feminist group. In the first waves, it’s white, married, wealthy women who fit the criteria to be a feminist. The first wave begins in 1900 and ends around 1920, during the times of the Suffragettes.

- Identity is often considered to be you sense of self, and who you believe you are. This often pertains to membership to a certain group, and identifying with people of the same or similar identity to yourself. In the feminist movement there has been a mis-match of identities and a lack of a clear collective identity, which has often led to people not fully understanding what feminism truly means (Bickford 112). Feminism as a movement has been strongly focused on identity politics, this has struck some problems though with collective identities and stereotyping.... [tags: Feminism, Feminist theory, Gender]

- The war on drugs began with good intentions, but it is becoming clear that this battle is a failure. Not only do drug laws violate American’s freedoms, but they further complicate the lives of drug users. These laws have inadvertently been responsible for the deaths of thousands through bad drug deals and dirty drugs, which leads one to ask the question, “Is this a war on drugs or a war on drug users?” Body bags and HIV are becoming the most widely known side effects of drug prohibition. Contrary to what many may think, drug use will never be eliminated.... [tags: Drugs]

- Feminism is a rather complex idea since it does not have just one simple definition, but it can be divided into different perspectives and ideas. This essay will explore those diverse strands of feminism, such as liberal feminism, radical and Marxist feminism, and also postmodern feminism. The main focus is to understand the origins of this movement, as well as the links it has with sociology and criminology. As Hannam (2012) states, the word "féminisme" first appeared in political debates in the late 18th century in France with the meaning of women 's emancipation....

- Feminism There has been a great deal of discussion over the Feminist & Gender Studies Program changing its name to Gender & Sexuality. The basis of this debate is over the exclusion of the word "feminist" from the title. It is important to question how this modification will affect the direction of the program and the feminist movement as a whole. The categorization of this area of study must be sensitive to the complex social issues it represents. Bringing the term "gender" to the fore-front, and focusing less on women, is a necessary "part of the attempt by contemporary feminists to stake claim to a certain definitional ground, to insist on the inadequacies of existing bodies of men" (Sco...

The feminists may say that girl does better in middle school because she is smarter than boys are. This is entirely inaccurate. During this time period, females have a higher ratio of estrogen in their body. This hormone promotes good memory. In middle school, most of the learning is memorization, not applying. Therefor, girls do better because the curriculum corresponds to their physical changes. (Fr. Fischer)
In 1895, Brooks Adams wrote a book entitled The Law of Civilization Decay. Even then, scholars such as Adams were aware of this change of the men in America. He saw that there were now two types of men in America: the spiritual man (farmer, warrior, poet and priest) and the economic man (the merchant, bureaucrat and politician). He saw the spiritual man, those who had a vision, and were well connected to their roots, as being the leader and the civilization builder in society. The economic man, those, who knew how to recognize opportunity, emerged; assuming domination after the civilization develops. The economic men strayed from their roots, and became materialistic. (Pierce; par. 10).
Since then, both types of men have lost their aesthetic sense, their warrior spirit, their feeling the divine, and their masculinity. Men have not lost their entire masculinity, but it has become weaker than that of men tow-hundred years ago. Many aristocratic values, the masculine values have been replaced by democratic, “egalitarian” values, the feminine values. Feminism is a very materialistic view of the world; it emphasizes on safety, security, and comfort. This is opposes the masculine view which emphasizes on honor, tradition and its roots. In addition, the materialistic view of the feminists led to a sense of egotism, hedonism, and narcissism. (Pierce; par. 15-17)
Because of feminism, America is loosing an important factor of the traditional American image. It is loosing its image of power, honor, and even freedom. With the fear factor introduced because of the some radical feminists’ abuse of the law, our sense of freedom, which American ideals are based on degenerates, and the American male image becomes weaker and less noble.
