Patriachal Empowerment

Feminists like to talk about how feminism has empowered them.

Viewed on a global scale and relative to its competition, the single most powerful society in the history of the world was the British Empire of the 19th century. It controlled 25% of the land and most of the oceans, making it far more powerful even than modern America.

And it was run by?

Queen Victoria.

Who, I should add for the benefit of dumb feminists, was a woman, and no fan of feminism:

"Were woman to 'unsex' themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen and disgusting of beings and would surely perish without male protection"

I think history has proven her correct, don't you?

So, 'patriachal' society empowered Queen Victoria to run most of the world in the most powerful Empire the Earth has ever seen. Now feminism empowers women to be predatory divorce lawyers and third-rate firefighters.

Bit of a come-down, don't you think?
