 P: 285 I think that most modern women would be happier without feminism. They would prefer to stay at home with children than out in an office staring at a computer screen. I am not against women having careers, but I think that it is better if the primary focus is on the family. Feminism is responsible for the transmission of stds such as HIV. Society certainly would be better off without feminism as there would not be such a large problem with the aging population. Feminism leads to women choosing the wrong lovers/ husbands - choosing the bad guy who would make an irresponsible parent rather than a hard working man who would make an excellent parent, and would father a responsible member of society. I believe that this effect will cause the average IQ of the feminist inspired countries to decrease. Women should be the creators of life in a loving family. Instead of the sexual objects to be used by fast talking creeps which many young women have become.

How so?

What problem would that be? I thought you were just arguing that feminism was responsible for HIV transmission. Wouldn't that be effectively reducing the aging population?

In addition to the above objections, I'd like to add this : whaa... ?

How does staying at home provide an environment for intellectual stimulation, as opposed to going to school for a higher education, interacting with people at a workplace, facing the challenges of varied local or global problems, etc ?

How does staying at home provide an environment for intellectual stimulation
Perhaps it does not. In the United States of the 20th century, parental g, combined with ancestral g, has been found to be the single most powerful predictor of offspring g. Experimental variance in intellectual stimulation has so far been inconclusive with respect to variance in g.

 The Milwaukee Project. Aside from Head Start, this is the most highly publicized of all intervention experiments. It was the most intensive and extensive educational intervention ever conducted for which the final results have been published. 55 It was also the most costly single experiment in the history of psychology and education--over $14 million. In terms of the highest peak of IQ gains for the seventeen children in the treatment condition (before the gains began to vanish), the cost was an estimated$23,000 per IQ point per child.... The study sample was divided into fairly equivalent treatment (T) and control (C) groups, each with twenty infants.... The T group, despite having a ten-point higher IQ than the C group, still performed in school very much like the C group. That is, both the T and C groups performed in school much as would be expected for children with an average IQ of eighty. The evident lack of generality, or broad transfer, of the effects of the T group's previous cognitive treatment indicates that the T-C gain in IQ was "hollow" with respect to g.
(Arthur Jensen. The g Factor. pp340-342.)

As far as a home environment possibly providing cognitive stimulation, electric lighting, as it is known to affect the pituitary gland, may affect brain growth:
 The increased hours of exposure to electric lighting and television are also probably responsible for some part of the increased overall rate of maturation, via stimulation of the pineal gland--an effect that has been demonstrated experimentally in animals. 31 31. Modern mass-production poultry farms make use of this phenomenon, by keeping chicks under bright electric lighting twenty-four hours a day, to hasten their rate of growth and the time needed to reach their maximum egg-laying capacity.

I presume the real author of this is Germaine Greer, trying to discredit any dissent against feminist dogma.
