Feminism - destroying the family in time and then in eternity

What philosophical movement has brought more tears to our little children in the church than feminism?

Feminism places a wedge between husband and wife by pitting them against each other. It poisons the ties between husband and wife with a layer of animosity toward men in general and specifically toward man's role as the head of the home. It poisons the relation between mother and child by teaching her that they are keeping her down, keeping her from real fulfillment, or alternatively, teaches her own children that they are second to her job, her career, her education, because those are the things that are most fundamental to her fulfillment.

Oh how thoughtlessly feminist women envy their husband and suspect his role of oppression and suspect their own children, and especially their capacity to bear more children, of being bondage.

I think they will find themselves free of such oppression and bondage in the eternities.

D&C 76:32 And they who remain shall also be quickened; nevertheless, they shall return again to their own place, to enjoy that which they are willing to receive, because they were not willing to enjoy that which they might have received.
 33 For what doth it profit a man if a gift is bestowed upon him, and he receive not the gift? Behold, he rejoices not in that which is given unto him, neither rejoices in him who is the giver of the gift.

If we cannot rejoice in the gift of eternal family, do we think it will be forced on us? If the last thing we want is never ending children, do you think the Lord force it on us?

Can we think of a more fitting description of femism than "They rejoice not in the gift of being a wife and mother, nor in Heavenly Father who gave them that gift"? Instead of rejoicing they are troubled and unhappy by the Lord's divine family pattern. Rather than rejoicing in his words, there are parts of it they won't even read aloud, because they hate those parts.

This is not rejoicing in the gift. This is not rejoicing in the giver of the gift. And so, they will return to what they would receive, because they were not willing to enjoy what they might have received.
