Alt Left: Liberal Feminism: The De Facto Position of Most Women in the West

Most women in the West are de facto liberal feminists or equity feminists, even if they say they are not feminists.
They say that but they are not anti-feminists either because strictly speaking, the anti-feminist position is to roll it all back to the suffragettes if not before. Antifeminists simply do not believe in equal rights for women or don’t believe that the government should mandate them. Many openly state that men are superior and women are inferior.
Almost all modern Western women believe in equal legal rights and equal opportunity for women. This is the “a woman can be anything she wants to be” line. It is in fact a feminist position as compared to the antifeminist one above. Most of these women also do not wish to ban porn, and many of them watch it themselves.
Most support the trans ideology more or less or are dubious but shrug-shoulders accepting of it in a “whatever” fashion. They are definitely not anti-trans.
Many of the ones I know favor some sort of decrim or legalization of prostitution, and some of the ones I have known even worked in the sex industry. A good friend of mine worked as a cam model (stripper). People associate liberal feminism with Third Wave Intersectional Feminism, but actually it long predates that.
Betty Friedan was one of the original libfems. She was even opposed to lesbianism, and she warned about the lure of the “lavender menace” of lesbianism to feminists. In her latest book she sounds even more conservative.
The suffragettes are often thought to be the first libfems.
Before that you can go all the way back to Mary Wollstonecraft and A Plea for the Rights of Women 300 years ago. Wollstonecraft was definitely a libfem. Strictly speaking, libfems are not 2nd or 3rd wavers. They are First Wave Feminists!
It is true that a lot of modern libfems have gone over to more or less 3rd wave stuff, but those positions – pro-porn, pro-prostitution and pro-trans – are quite new. All decent humans should support the humanitarian liberation movement called First Wave liberal feminism.
I’m a First Waver myself. Most feminists hate my guts and act like they want to kill me, but I am actually a mild feminist. This shows how insane modern feminism has become that it attacks even feminist men for the crime of not being feminist enough. They also engage in definition creep, so not feminist enough means you aren’t even a feminist at all, as they keep moving the goalposts of the purity tests one must pass to be a feminist every year.
