Important Question from the Feminist Movement: Do Real Women Have D--ks?

Recently someone (I forget who) noted that the media -- the chattering classes generally -- are intensely interested in fringe ideas on the right, not to promote those ideas of course, but rather to use them to discredit the right generally.

I will not even bother with the pretense of the rhetorical question as to why the media is not interested in similarly exploring the very weird fringe ideas on the left.

But here's what's going on in "Feminism" right now, allegedly a movement which addresses the concerns of all or most women.

If you want to see why modern feminism is in crisis, look no further than Michelle Goldberg's piece in the latest New Yorker.

She describes how transgender activists are protesting the gatherings of the group "RadFem Responds" with "acts of vandalism -- stealing electrical cables, cutting water pipes, keying cars in the parking lot, and spray-painting a six-foot penis, and the words 'Real Women Have D--ks,' on the side of the main kitchen tent."

Wait. What?

Why do real women carry around ducks?

That's just not right.

The Bible doesn't say anything about carrying around ducks.

Not on my watch, Sister. Not on my watch.

The radical feminists are under attack because they don't accept in their ranks people born as biological men but now convinced they're women. The RadFemmers argue that the transgendered just aren't oppressed enough to gain membership.

Goldberg explains their position: "Anyone born a man retains male privilege in society; even if he chooses to live as a woman -- and accept a correspondingly subordinate social position -- the fact that he has a choice means that he can never understand what being a woman is really like."

Got that?

The writer thinks that nonsense like this might be why the hashtag #WomenAgainstFeminism is so popular.
