I’m a huge supporter of women. What I’m not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose. Feminism has led women astray. I love the women’s movement especially when I’m walking behind it. – Rush Limbaugh
Isn’t he just charming?
He loves women, just not liberalism. But thinks feminism has “led women astray.” This from a man who’s been married three times, about to get married a fourth time, who continues to call professional women “info babes.”
This line about feminism is continually repeated by the right, which they think is bolstered by the studies that say women are less happy today. Of course, the Phyllis Schlafly crew believe feminism is to blame.
Recently, Marcus Buckingham wrote over at HuffPo on the subject, in conjunction with his books. What’s happening to women’s happiness?
Rush and the right say it’s feminism.
Western American women are for one thing too critical. For another, won’t take responsibility for doing more in their day that actually makes them happy. You also have to choose happiness, which has nothing to do with perfection or achieving everything you want.
But leave it to Rush to opine on something he knows absolutely nothing about.
