Feministiskt initiativ uppmärksammat "over there"

mars 1, 2006

Några kanske minns när CNN rapporterade om Gudrun Schymans förslag om mansskatt under länken ”funny swedish tax”. Jag pluggade just då i USA, och var tillräckligt långt hemifrån för att kunna skratta rått tillsammans med mina kompisar när förslaget kom. Men statsfeminismen är ju tyvärr inte alls lika rolig när man är tillbaks här hemma…

Nåväl, denna gång så är det Townhall som bloggar om FI:

What do you get when you combine the total collapse of traditional marriage with the State-driven growth of gender-neutral and multi-partner ”registered partnerships?
Fanatical Swedish feminists.

Townhall länkar till en artikel i National Review med just rubriken Fanatical Swedish Feminists:

Sweden has obviously begun to slide “down the slope.” Were it not for the supposedly final same-sex partnership initiatives of 1987 and 1994, Sweden would not now be facing calls for the abolition of marriage and the recognition of polyamorous partnerships. And if that man-bashing hadn’t been exposed by a documentary, FI might still be riding high. The remarkable thing is that, well before the man-bashing, when FI was talking about radical ideas like a “man tax” and compulsory paternal leave, the party was considered “moderate,” and looked on with favor by a huge segment of the electorate. Many Swedes remain willing to support radical feminist reforms, and that is why the Left Party has co-opted FI’s relationship plan.

What does it mean when a movement wants simultaneously to formalize gay marriage, equate marriage with mere registered partnerships, equate registered partnerships with mere cohabitation, and then abolish marriage itself? It seems contradictory, but it all makes perfect sense once you realize that Sweden’s social liberals don’t support either gay marriage or registered partnerships out of any affection for marriage itself. On the contrary, Sweden’s social left is simply using gay marriage as a lever to achieve the abolition of marriage itself.
