Quote of the day

November 28, 2016

I’ve never watched the Kelly File, or any of her news shows (though I’ve seen plenty of clips that get passed around), so I can’t say I’m particularly familiar with Megyn Kelly’s thought nor her approach to hosting a news show. She has gotten a lot of attention lately for a variety of reasons during the campaign, Fox News drama, and her new book, and it certainly hasn’t been uniform across either side of the political spectrum, which I’ve found interesting, which is why this profile of her caught my eye. It ends with special attention to her place in the modern women’s movement.

Megyn Kelly is exactly the kind of woman that a legitimate women’s movement would celebrate—which is why the feminist movement never will.

I think of myself as egalitarian more than complementarian, to adopt one polarity often used in discussing women in society, but given the current state of national discussion, I could not identify myself as a feminist:

Most young women would like to find a man who loves them, a man who wants to marry them, a man who is willing and able to provide them with a better life than a woman can have by herself.

No matter how much satisfaction she obtains from career achievement, she needs (and no, “need” is not too strong a word for her profound psychological urge) to have the love and support of a man. She wants babies. She wants to find a strong man, a masculine man who loves her so much that he is willing, for her sake, to shoulder the responsibilities inherent in the titles “husband” and “father.”

Feminism is not the solution to that young woman’s problem. [R. S. McCain, “Feminism’s Big Lie”]
