Cream City: Feminism's Catch-22

One of the most curious aspects of the modern feminist movement is how, by seeking to emancipate and advance the “true” cause of women, it does so in a very restrictive, narrow way: within the confined parameters of masculine strengths. What do I mean? Feminism’s success is measured by how it keeps up with masculine standards and roles. Ignoring their own unique gifts and qualities as women, radical feminists assume masculine traits, and chase after positions usually taken up by men, thereby tossing aside their own particular strengths. How is this a victory for women? Ironically, what gets lost in the feminist frenzy is the true feminine genius unique to women. It gets lost because it is scorned by feminists as restrictive and antediluvian.
