pdf Ø The Privilege of Being a Woman Ä Alice von Hildebrand

The Privilege of Being a Woman Ó Women historically have been denigrated as lower than men or viewed as privileged Dr Alice von Hildebrand characterizes the difference between such views as based on whether man's vision is secularistic o I feel really troubled that this book has received so much high praise and average of 43 on Goodreads? Seriously? and it confirms to me that the only people who pick this up are the ones who are already eager to swallow anything that gets the Vatican's approval no matter how inane it is It is indeed a privilege to be a woman but I wish that Alice von Hildebrand could have made that point without saying so many utterly stupid things She essentially makes an argument that is in line with certain schools of feminism that women should be valued for their feminine traits rather than try to become like men even as she discounts feminism while having absolutely no understanding of its breadth or depth In fact it seems the only feminist she's ever read is Simone de Beauvoir For example“The agenda of feminists while animated by a hatred of men aims at virilizing women so that they can gain control over their bodies their destiny” p 2 3and“Unwittingly the feminists acknowledge the superiority of the male sex by wishing to become like men They foolishly want to alter ineuality rather than to achieve truth or justice” p 10Because somehow fighting ineuality is NOT justice?While acknowledging that generalization is risky p 40 she goes on to make sweeping generalizations with absolutely no evidence to back them up including the following If you lead a group of men and a group of women into a room in which there is a computer and a baby all the women will go to the baby and all the men will go to the computer p 59 60 If all the tears shed by women had been collected since the beginning of the world they would compete with the sea The tears shed by men might fill a pond of modest size p 37 That it is no coincidence that marriages that use artificial contraception break up often p 94 There is absolutely NO citation for this fact which fails to mention that 93% of married couples use contraception INCLUDING Catholics So any conclusions drawn from that remaining 7% seem totally bogus Ever hear of too small sample sizes? What about correlation is not causation? That women who have abortions are plagued with self hatred and become suicidal pg 61 I'm sure some of them do So do some women who have childrenHer logic is totally twisted such as her idea that the fact that the Catholic Church gives women no power is actually a way of honoring them pg 106 And her bizarre ideas about the relationship between men and women aren't even compatible with one another she claims that women are called to be the conscience of man p 29 and also that men are responsible for telling women which of their emotions are valid and which are irrational p 38 After which Ivan asked me the very good uestion of How am I suppose to tell you which of your emotions are valid if I don't have a conscience? to which I would reply Why the would I marry a man who didn't have a conscience?? But then she goes on to say the most holy people embody both masculine and feminine characteristics which goes against her whole thesis of the sacristy of separateness and difference p 76I initially gave this book 2 stars but I had to downgrade it after I reviewed the two pages of batt crazy uotes I took down from it and because to serve as a warning for all this book's average rating on Goodreads REALLY needs to be brought down a few notches While there are a few interesting or even beautiful observations and ideas tucked away in these 108 pages for the most part von Hildebrand's tangential unsupported work mostly just lends credence to her thesis about women's intellectual inferiority pdf Ø The Privilege of Being a Woman Ä Alice von Hildebrand
