How Boomer Feminism Has Indoctrinated and Harmed Young People
Inebriated by screens and raised by perpetually nostalgic, adolescent-like parents, the Millennials, as a generation, have been given nothing towards
which to rebel. Their Generation X parents had been society’s bad-asses, metalheads, tough kids and rebels, enjoying sex, living fast and narrowly
escaping dying young. After facing the lessons of “the dark side” of life, Generation X grew up to be more compassionate, more conscious and more
connected to nature, spirituality and family than their Baby Boomer parents. Our restless wisdom, intellect and creative innovation has been as
dangerous to a consumeristic global order as was the social justice pioneering of the Boomer youth before us. With the murder of peace icon John
Lennon in 1980, it was made clear to the Boomers that service to human rights was a dead profession. Their sense of hopelessness was quickly
distracted by a growing social order of career focus and material prosperity.
This program of social engineering had roots with the political birth of modern feminism. Contrary to the common belief that feminism was about
“equality” between the sexes, feminism was a means to socially engineer a docile population willing to work, consume, buy and die without
question. Feminism was a movement funded privately, with government ties, to drive a rift through the heart of society’s last stronghold of personal
and collective freedom: The human family. By seducing stay-at- home mothers into the workplace and causing them to grow in contempt for child care,
not only would the government have the ability to tax the other half of the adult population, but children would be willingly handed over to day
cares, preschools, kindergartens and schools. This would have the effect of further weakening family bonds and providing a captive audience of
disconnected and restless children ripe for a social engineering curriculum of obedience, consumerism and consumption.
By the early 80’s, the Boomers turned away from their hippie, peace and unity roots and became seduced by the careers, prosperity, materialism and
the stylish “Yuppie” culture offered to them. Their “latch-key” children paid the price by returning home each day to homes empty of parents
and devoid of connection. They were raised by the TV set and by their equally disconnected peers. Generation X was famous for being angry and
rebellious “without a cause”. As a generation, our Boomer parents had seemed ill-equipped to understand us, connect to us or compassionately
respond to our needs without trying to buy a solution, a therapist or a babysitter.
However, when my generation gave birth to the Millennials, we sought to be there for our children and protect them. Unfortunately, in efforts to prove
ourselves hip to the task of understanding youth angst, Gen X-ers have been vulnerable to nostalgia and therefore have refused to give up our 1980’s
adolescence. Gen X parents were so interested in appearing “cool” that they became suffocating “friends” to the Millenials rather than
connected to the needs of the Millennials. Some of us Gen X parents proudly brought our bad-ass rebellion to the defense of our children by saying no
to public schooling and saying yes to parenting for connection and a return to nature: Homeshooling, unschooling, Attachment Parenting, natural family
living and Paleo eating have been among the results.
However, Gen X parents as a collective became lost in nostalgia and in filling their emptiness through their children’s accomplishments. They
competed with other parents, they pushed achievement above play and they praised product above creativity. They became hysterically fearful of any
situation which they could not control in the lives of their children, turning nature, art, free play, free time, the neighborhood, adventures and
exploration into an enemy that needed to be subdued. Gen X parents
cowered to the pressure for their children to conform: They allowed the Millennials to drown in the pharmaceuticals, media, devices, regimented
activities and oppressive schooling socially engineered by Baby Boomer ideology.
Gen Xers were, as a generation, rejecting of feminism. As a generation of confident, snarky, “we can be anything we want to be” rebels, Gen X
youth didn’t need feminism telling us what to believe or what to do. We Gen X young women loved our Gen X young men: We loved their bodies, their
style, their long hair, their confidence, their attention and yes, sex with them. As a generation, both female and male, we were raised to feel like
competent, strong equals. As a generation, Gen X naturally secured equality between the sexes by the freedom we had in forming alliances, connections
and relationships in the educational, career and personal worlds. As a result, we didn’t see the zombie about to be resurrected.
However, by some savvy political necromancy motivated by renewed social engineering agendas, the bitter corpse of Boomer feminism was resurrected in
the late 90’s to target society’s new grandchildren. This time, the gender programming would be fierce and war-like, with a three-fold agenda:
