Feminism is a scam, it’s not about uplifting women but tearing women down says US activist, Candace Owens
United States political activist and conservative commentator, Candace Owens said that she discovered too late that feminism is a scam and is not about uplifting women but tearing women down.
Ms.Candace Owens made her opinion known as she kicked off Turning Point USA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit in Texas.
“What the left is really good at doing is hijacking a term that once meant something and pretending that it’s still the same thing when, in fact, it’s not,” Owens said.
“Really, if you want to see something toxic, tell a feminist — who says they support every idea a woman has — tell a feminist that you’re not a feminist and see what happens. See the way that you get treated,” she continued.
“I can’t think of women that are nastier and meaner than the ones who exist under these pussy hats, right?” she added.
She told the crowd about an upsetting comment she read online after having a conversation on the dangers of feminism with Allie Beth Stuckey. According to her, the comment was from a 55-year-old woman who said she fell for the modern day feminist lies, leaving her with no children and forcing her to take medication regularly.
‘I learnt too late that feminism was a scam. Today I’am 55, I am unmarried, I have passed the age I can have children and I have to take medicines to help keep me happy. I am on my medication and that is the scam of feminism.
“If there’s anything I could go back and do, I would’ve warned myself against the scam of feminism,” the woman wrote.
Owens also mentioned a number of far-left feminist icons in Hollywood, including Miley Cyrus, Lena Dunham and Chelsea Handler.
“I believe these voices like Lena Dunham, and Miley Cyrus, and Chelsea Handler are convincing women against themselves, telling women, ‘You don’t need a man. You don’t need anyone. You should want to do everything by yourself. And if you do aspire to that — if you aspire toward nature — then something’s wrong with you,’” Owens said.
