The message to be a "feminist" is to act and behave like a man in the workplace, home, and sexual conquests without love or commitment, as well as the
breakdown of marriage, family and community connection. Women are being told to suppress natural feminine qualities in order to fit-in with today's
In my opinion, the women attracted to this cult are having a backlash to the feminist message by buying into "new" feminism that they can freely
explore, grow and evolve through Keith Raniere's masculine, paternal (God like) guidance, security, "home" foundation. Keith receives all of them

This is all being stripped away. Women aren't stupid or less capable of achievement, however, more emphasis is put on career success instead of
My mother taught me that a woman may have everything -- just not at the same time, and a man can have everything once he marries. Feminism needs to
If we have tax payer money to support so many causes, including military medical coverage for transgenders, then we need to figure out how women can
be the hands-on caring, involved mother & wife, household CEO, career achievement, caretaker to aging parents, and breadwinner.
