    Great article, Terri.

    I think many women in your age cohort are realizing how much feminism has screwed up their love lives. This is especially true in progressive cities with large gender imbalances: NYC, DC, and SF come to mind. Marriage rates in those towns are low, and fertility rates are abysmal.

    Half a loaf is better than none. I have been waiting for an avowed feminist to admit feminism’s failings for some time and while this article does not go far enough, I suppose I should be thankful that it acknowledges a major failing in that feminism has utterly failed to deal with initmate relationships between the genders. I have always viewed “The Feminine Mystique” as The Feminist Manifesto and this article attacks a core principle of that work that women should focus more on their careers than finding suitable man to marry. I looked at Ms. Trespicio’s website and it is largely focuses on dating and relationships, topics that Ms. Friedan suggested women should focus on less. The pendulum is, I believe, starting to swing away from feminism. Too late for me, but not for my sons, Thank God!

    Feminism didn’t just screw womens’ love lives it screwed up their lives by shifting the earning burden on to them. Case in point see this http://boards.askmen.com/showthread.php?57450-Secret-lives-of-breadwinner-wives

      I give this woman kudos for airing her laundry in front of the world. I give her no respect. I find her attitude just awful.

  5. No sorry, this doesn’t convince me one bit that it will screw up a love life. If a man is so threatened by a woman being a feminist then he’s not worth it

    • I think she was actually saying that it was about how feminism made her view herself…. not about men being threatened by her being a feminist…just saying
