My Brand of Feminism: I Am Not a Victim
My Brand of Feminism: I Am Not a Victim
09/24/2012

Dr. Laura -

A little over a year ago, I wrote a post on my family blog after I had my son. I had spent those first few months adjusting to motherhood, largely in my pj's and sweatpants. I decided my husband had seen enough of me like that, and figured out a 15 minute routine I could do to look a little more like the woman he had dated. I shared this in my post. It was no big deal, I thought - until a group of feminists found my blog…

I was called a chattel, a sex-slave, profoundly stupid. It was suggested to me that even with all my striving to be the perfect wife (with my extensive and time-consuming 15 minute primping routine) my husband still might leave me someday and there will have been nothing I could have done to prevent it!

So, in response to their harsh words and reactions, I took the time to write a blog about what I thought about too many feminists out there - that they actually create oppression where there isn't any! And, that my kind of feminism is one which empowers, one that recognizes we are only truly victims of our own poor choices.

Thanks for all you do to empower women to be the best they can be, for themselves, their men, and their families. I believe the best way to make a difference in the world, is right from within the walls of our own homes. I only wish all those feminists could recognize the great opportunity they so readily seem to pass up.

Sincerely,

Jami
