For the record:
The “1st” wave was the suffragettes. Not so much an ideology as a movement.
2nd-wave feminism happened around the seventies. Started off as a movement, but quickly became infiltrated by cultural Marxists. Would later be used to rationalize much of the third-wave feminist nonsense.
3rd-wave (“radical”) feminism started off with the riot girl scene — female punk rockers with little to no talent or concept of propriety. It would eventually make its way to the universities to merge with what second-wave feminism had become (Womyn’s Studies) and the growing push for diversity and multiculturalism.
4th-wave feminism is characterized by intersectionality. (Because multiculturalism wasn’t “diverse” enough.) This one originated squarely in the universities with the feminist appropriation of LGBT issues and the advent of modern “Gender Studies”.
(“Gender Studies” actually used to refer to the branch of Womyn’s Studies that dealt with male/female relations. Back when there were still only TWO genders.)
NOTE: Update to follow (eventually, I swear), because there’s a Part II to the genderqueef shit, and it’s seriously one of the craziest things I have ever seen from the Regressive Left. Which is saying quite a damned bit.
October has not been a month for friendship. My friends are dropping like flies — and it’s largely the fault of Lindsey Graham. He has released from within me an utter abhorrence for unethical shams.
About a dozen people have unfriended me on Facebook since the Christine Ford farce, and I’m pretty sure the majority of those who didn’t are no longer following me.
For the most part, I have been silently unfriended. By whom, it’s hard to tell, which suggests no major loss. But here are two cases in which I played an active role in the dissolution of a friendship — for better or for worse.
