We were sorry to learn of the death of Phyllis Schlafly, a well known and courageous opponent of Feminism. She was known as the “First Lady of anti-Feminism” in the United States.
She died on Monday 5th September at the age of 92 at her home in Missouri.
She campaigned against the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the USA in the 1970’s and was successful.
We were surprised to discover that she endorsed Donald Trump for President, because he embodies and supports some or many of the moral and societal ills she (rightly) condemned, such as adultery, pornography and the LGBT agenda.
She was wrong endorse such a man (Hillary Clinton is as bad or worse.)
However there is no denying the great contribution Phyllis Schlafly made to the cause of anti-Feminism and we are including some of her famous quotes in our post.
She said (about feminist designation “Ms”)
“Don’t call me “Ms” – it means misery”
On Equal Rights Amendment,
“ERA means abortion funding, means homosexual privilege, means whatever else.” (1999)
On immigrants who don’t speak English,
“You can’t be an American if you don’t speak English. Our public schools should be mandated to teach all children in English.” (1995)
On women being drafted into the military,
“The purpose of our military is to field the finest troops possible to defend our nation and win wars. The goal of feminists, however, is to impose a mindless equality, regardless of how many people it hurts.” (2016)
On transgender agenda,
“Anyone with a child knows that children learn about the world through binary options: up or down, hot or cold, big or little, inside or outside, wet or dry, good or bad, boy or girl, man or woman. But the radical feminists, who staff women’s studies departments at most colleges, have propagated the idea that we have to get rid of the “gender binary” along with the expectation of distinct roles for men and women.” (2016)
On climate change,
“Of course, climate changes. Many change are due to factors over which humans have no control, such as winds, ocean currents and sun activity. But the liberals want us to believe that climate change is also caused by gases expelled when humans burn so-called fossil fuels.” (2011)
On the gender pay gap,
“One reason a woman gets married is to be supported by her husband while caring for her children at home. So long as her husband earns a good income, she doesn’t care about the pay gap between them.” (2015)
On women in combat,
“There’s a reason why no woman has ever won our nation’s highest award for valour. The Medal of Honour recognises a willingness to charge toward danger, to seek out and remove a threat, while everyone else is running away.” (2015)
On the United Nations,
“We certainly don’t need a committee of foreigners who call themselves “experts” to dictate our laws or customs.” (2012) end of quotes.
