feminists are puritans 2019-09-06 11:47:34
If you look up Temperance movement (while alcoholics i can see point reducing) but just saying.. much of western feminism have roots from religious fundamentalists. They are puritans at heart while trying to claim something else. Not to mention the more extreme it gets the more misandrist values they practice aswell.
Much of the temperance movement was based on organized religion, which saw women as responsible for edifying their children to be abstaining citizens.:23 Nevertheless, temperance was tied in with both religious renewal and progressive politics, particularly female suffrage. Furthermore, temperance activists were able to promote suffrage more effectively than suffrage activists were, because of their wide-ranging experiences as activists, and because they argued for a concrete desire for safety at home, rather than for an abstract desire for justice as suffragists did.:5–6
A litte history on puritans.. But no wonder Europeans kind of got fed up with those. But this has heavily entered United States since they are very open minded people living there.
