Dear Mr. Kalb and Fellow Readers,
Feminism is partly to blame for Miss Hollowayâ€™s tragic end. Feminism says men and women are equal and equality trumps everything; therefore, it is illogical and unfair to propose women should behave different from men.
Proposing that women need to avoid being alone with men the women do not know violates this feminist principle. Feminist principles dominate our society. Parents either believe many of such principles or have no way to articulate their uneasiness (as they would if they communed here) or have no practical ability to stop their daughters from acting in accordance with unwise feminist principles.
Mrs. Holloway’s abilities were faced with a solid wall of parents willing to send their daughters off to party in a Third World culture, not that the Third World aspect was necessarily decisive because the same unwise behavior occurs here in America and yields the same results.
We do not have trios of young women luring drunken young men into automobiles and drugging or raping them or both and then murdering them because they will cry rape to the police. Feminists think this fact of life is unfair and is somehow the fault of men as opposed to biology; therefore, they reject any attempt to use it to â€œrepressâ€ women into acting different from men.
I am stating the obvious, but someone needs to do it.
All the Best,
