Remember when Rand said she wouldn’t want a woman president? Well, in her essay About a Woman President she also stated that she would not want to have a woman to be the commander in chief. The left quickly goes brain-dead upon hearing this without hearing the explanation: It was never about the ability of woman to do her job, “Women are not inferior to men in ability or intelligence”, but it would be hard to imagine a woman not putting her familial duty first before her nation. Rand even described herself as a “male chauvinist” out of spite of the collectivists. But to objectivists, the views on the feminine sex is clear- it’s irrelevant.
Objectivism is a philosophy of the individual, all individuals shall make their own choices and accept the responsibility which comes with their choices. All individuals regardless of gender has the same right to own themselves! Rand supported abortion through logical reasoning (“a potential is not a reality”) rather than the “no uterus, no opinion” sentiment feminists are shrieking. She used strong, independent female characters in her novels such as Dagny Taggart in Atlas Shrugged and Dominique Francon in The Fountainhead. When the push comes to shove, Rand stated that she would still vote for a female president (if she’s an objectivist). If she chooses not to have children (as Rand did) it is her choice, if she wants to work and have children, she may very well do so too. There’s nothing to stop a strong woman to become successful. Sadly, feminism today is a collectivist group of “victim-worship“. It spreads its myth like the Nazi propaganda, like a virus infecting productive individuals and turning them into ill parasites. But never fear! A new group of women are taking control to prove to everyone that they don’t need the victimhood to get ahead in life, they came, they saw and they conquered the traditionally male dominated field- Politics.
