Modern feminism has mostly become a joke, at least in terms of its adherents. Feminism used to be about tackling real issues in society and empowering women, reminding them that they are people and can really accomplish anything if they put their minds to it. But now it just seems like feminism has become a movement which only encourages immaturity among women. Where is the great feminist role model of the present time? The old feminist icons were actually intelligent, educated women who accomplished things and made a change in society, but now it seems like all of the new feminist role models are just baby-mama's and poor single mothers, and, I have nothing against these types of women since my mother was one of them, but why exactly are they role models? It seems like the feminists are only trying to make their behavior seem acceptable and make women seem inferior by promoting this type of behavior rather than educating women on responsibility and their true potential. I would say the same thing about the New Black Panthers party; I used to support the old Black Panthers party because they were actually reaching out to minorities and the ghetto community, educating and feeding children, fighting for social justice, educating each other and having good, educated role models like Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, but now that has all changed. The New Black Panthers party is no longer about educating young minorities and teaching us the way to a better lifestyle, but about justifying and making our lifestyle seem acceptable and only promoting it. Once again, where is the great new Black Panthers icon who was actually educated, made a difference and is truly a good role model? There is none. Their new icons are just hood gangsters and people in jail who have really done nothing to help the cause, and rather than educating and reaching out to these people, they are only justifying their behavior, which, in the long run is just going to harm them even more because it will promote them to continue living in the same ghetto lifestyle rather than to educate themselves and change the world.
