When Feminism Looks Like Fundamentalism

Good point about culture. Different fundamentalists would obsess on very different “eye traps” in the name of suppressing women’s sexuality, whether it was skin, posture or visible hair. Postmodern feminism isn’t just dogmatic like fundamentalism. It’s also full of similar kinds of self contradiction, hypocrisy and the shouting down of critical reason and logic. It seems to resemble religion to the extent of actually becoming one with its rote learnt mantras and moralism. It’s an open question as to whether it identifies a deity, but it certainly has a devil figure in the idea of “patriarchy,” a sort of lumping together of all evil in an ill-defined idea.
