I will give you two main reasons.
1). Because feminism is not good
2) Because the majority of people who call themselves feminists are NOT really feminists.
I will now turn to item # 2. Note that of the responses that exist when I write my answer, 3 even refuse to know who Julie Bindel is. It's a full 1/3. Or, of the 4 "feminist" answers, 3/4 or 75% of "feminists" have never heard of her.
It is these people who define their own definition of "feminism" and never judge others who also define their own definition and do what they want. Clearly … that's the case. Because none of them calls Julie Bindel here or anywhere else.
The last "feminist" speaker here holds the questioner responsible for even mentioning Julie Bindel rather than making the slightest effort to hold Julie Bindel accountable. Julie is the feminist … will say – HER– to stop acting in accordance with your own ideas about feminism. Why come here to blame us for not defending your * unauthorized ideas of feminism rather than going to the source where the problems all begin?
Now, regarding the importance of Julie: Every movement is defined by its important members. The most prominent members are those who hold positions of power in the traditional feminist movement. These same eminent feminists retain their importance by receiving NO CHALLENGE from other "feminists" for their ideas, statements and actions under the feminist banner. As such, they are able to lead the movement in a way that fits their vision of feminism.
Julie Bindel undoubtedly corresponds to the definition of a leading feminist. Look here are excerpts from Wikipedia:
– "Julie Bindel (born July 20, 1962) is an English writer, radical feminist and co-founder of the law reform group" Justice for Women ""
– "Visiting scholar at the University of Lincoln (2014-2017) and former Deputy Director of the Center for Research on Violence, Abuse and Gender Relations at Leeds Metropolitan University,"
– "Bindel has written or co-authored more than 30 book chapters and four books"
– "She writes regularly for The Guardian, New Statesman, Sunday Telegraph magazine and Standpoint."
To claim that Rommel or Hess or any other important Nazi has never existed simply because we have never heard of it before does not remove the very definition of this movement. Nobody would be so ridiculous to believe it. But with feminism … all the appropriate rules seem to disappear.
