Robert Stacy McCain asks the obvious question

You know we hear a lot about the world war 2 gen­er­a­tion, the gen­er­a­tion of my Father & Mother as the “great­est gen­er­a­tion”. Although this is a des­ig­na­tion that they would not accept (they would likely point to their par­ents) there is one thing about said des­ig­na­tion that begs a ques­tion, a ques­tion so obvi­ous that many in our uni­ver­si­ties where stu­dent pay tens of thou­sands of dol­lars annu­ally for the edu­ca­tion my par­ents could only dream of, never seem to ask. But Stacy McCain asks it

Did your father exploit your mother as a “breeder”? Was your grand­fa­ther the agent of your grandmother’s oppres­sion? Was your great-grandmother’s human­ity denied because your great-​grandfather kept her in an infe­rior posi­tion as a “sex object”? This is what fem­i­nist the­ory teaches, that human his­tory has been noth­ing but a gigan­tic patri­ar­chal con­spir­acy through which men (all men) have oppressed women (all women), and the over­throw of this col­lec­tive oppres­sion requires a rev­o­lu­tion:

Think about it. We live in an age were our elites con­sider them­selves the epit­ome of all the proper ways per­son should think and believe on all sub­jects on like Gay Mar­riage our grand­par­ents must all be sex­ists but big­ots too and not just our par­tic­u­lar grandfathers

I’m 45 years old and I’ve always been a news junkie. I must have been the only kid in town to watch the impeach­ment hear­ings of Nixon in awe. I don’t recall any of our lib­eral stal­warts dur­ing the 70’s or the 80’s and VERY few in the 90’s (and then only in the late 90’s) argue for gay marriage.

Appar­ently by Mr. Cohen stan­dards all of the peo­ple who lived in those days were cow­ards and big­ots. Jimmy Carter must have been a cow­ard and a bigot, Rea­gan, Clin­ton, John­son. FDR and yes even JFK and RFK must have been the worst kind of big­ots. JFK junior must have been one, Sam Ray­burn, Bar­bara Jor­dan, Earl War­ren and Mar­tin Luther King big­ots all.

How is it that our grand­par­ents could save the world and be such narrow-​minded, church going big­ots who couldn’t even tell the dif­fer­ence between sex and gender?

Aren’t we lucky to be liv­ing in a time full of peo­ple so much wiser than any who ever lived.

At least in their own minds anyways.

You know we hear a lot about the world war 2 generation, the generation of my Father & Mother as the “greatest generation”.  Although this is a designation that they would not accept (they would likely point to their parents) there is one thing about said designation that begs a question, a question so obvious that many in our universities where student pay tens of thousands of dollars annually for the education my parents could only dream of, never seem to ask.  But Stacy McCain asks it

Did your father exploit your mother as a “breeder”? Was your grandfather the agent of your grandmother’s oppression? Was your great-grandmother’s humanity denied because your great-grandfather kept her in an inferior position as a “sex object”? This is what feminist theory teaches, that human history has been nothing but a gigantic patriarchal conspiracy through which men (all men) have oppressed women (all women), and the overthrow of this collective oppression requires a revolution:

Think about it.  We live in an age were our elites consider themselves the epitome of all the proper ways person should think and believe on all subjects on like Gay Marriage our grandparents must all be sexists but bigots too and not just our particular grandfathers

I’m 45 years old and I’ve always been a news junkie. I must have been the only kid in town to watch the impeachment hearings of Nixon in awe. I don’t recall any of our liberal stalwarts during the 70’s or the 80’s and VERY few in the 90’s (and then only in the late 90’s) argue for gay marriage.

Apparently by Mr. Cohen standards all of the people who lived in those days were cowards and bigots. Jimmy Carter must have been a coward and a bigot, Reagan, Clinton, Johnson. FDR and yes even JFK and RFK must have been the worst kind of bigots. JFK junior must have been one, Sam Rayburn, Barbara Jordan, Earl Warren and Martin Luther King bigots all.

How is it that our grandparents could save the world and be such narrow-minded, church going bigots who couldn’t even tell the difference between sex and gender?
