The Fraud of Feminism
The above attitude, with all its inconsistencies, has at its back a strong sex-conscious party, or sex union, as we may term it, among women, and a floating mass of inconsequent, slushy sentiment among men. There is more than one popular prejudice which obscures the meaning and significance of Modern Feminism with many people.
Now this theory, if it ever represented the true state of the case, has long ceased to do so.
The powerful female sex union spoken of, in the present day, exercises such a strong pressure in the formation of public opinion among women, that it is rapidly becoming next to impossible, even in the most flagrant cases, where man is the victim, to get any woman to acknowledge that another woman has committed a wrong. On the other hand it may be noted, that the entire absence of any consciousness of sex antagonism in the attitude of men towards women, combined with an intensification of the old-world chivalry prescribed by tradition towards the so-called weaker sex, exercises, if anything, an increasing sway over male public opinion.
Hence the terrific force Feminism has obtained in the world of the early twentieth century. Feminism, or, as it is sometimes called, the emancipation of woman, as we know it in the present day, may be justifiably indicted as a gigantic fraud — a fraud in its general aim and a fraud alike in its methods of controversy and in its practical tactics.
It is through and through disingenuous and dishonest.

Modern Feminism has always professed to be a movement for political and social equality between the sexes. The claim for this equalising of position and rights in modern society is logically based upon the assumption of an essential equality in natural ability between the sexes. As to this, we have indicated in the preceding pages on broad lines, the grounds for regarding the foregoing assumption as false.
But quite apart from this question, I contend the fraudulent nature of the present movement can readily be seen by showing it to be not merely based on false grounds, but directly and consciously fraudulent in its pretensions. He studied philosophy in Germany.
From the perspective of a barrister and a socialist he denounced the various privileges of women and the feminist movement, which sought to augment these privileges. If you know the book but cannot find it on AbeBooks, we can automatically search for it on your behalf as new inventory is added.
