Don't Be a Feminist: The Montz Interview
Here’s another outstanding Rob Montz production, a wide-ranging interview on feminism, academia, and more.
Granted, the video’s title (“Don’t Let Your Daughter Be a Feminist”) is a bit weird, because no one can actually withhold permission from anyone to believe an idea. To belabor the obvious, whether my daughter becomes a feminist is totally her choice. And while I could withhold permission to discuss the issue (“Not under my roof, you won’t!”), that’s the opposite of how I raise my kids. Instead, I embrace a policy of friendly candor. Even if one of my kids asks a classically disgusting question at dinner, the worst I’ll say is, “Let’s talk about it after we’re done eating.”

I’m forced to unsubscribe from your substack because ,try as I might to see your perspective, all of your writings on the matter of feminism come across as post-hoc rationalizations of your own bias and misogyny. This view diminishes your credibility on other issues. I think you should spend more time reading literature that broadens your perspective on the social and anthropological nature of the feminist question.
Ah yes, more Glibertarian Theater.
