The tragic truth about the search for true equality in our society David Hampson (Working Class Man, Sunday Herald-Sun January 3) is that academic male dogma is not only accepted as fact already, but has been so for centuries.
This dogma dictates that women cannot possibly be as smart, tough, shrewd, aggressive, political and cunning as men. Calling them feminists is just another gambit to allow men to stay poised on their pedestals of power with women destined to keep wearing silk slippers so we don’t rumble their security.
Male power already exercises censorship (I won’t say total) and thought control in our society to ensure the majority of women are kept poor, and therefore powerless and unable to attain equal status with men.
I’d call that fascism – albeit of a sexist nature, without jackboots.
The men don’t need them.
