Feminists call for abolition of marriageScandinavian leftists have been working to dismantle the nuclear family for decades. Now, I frequently hear those very same leftists argue that Muslim immigration is good for Europe because "they can teach us family values". Notice that these "Feminists" want a six hour work day, but say nothing about the rapid increase in rape charges that has accompanied immigration:
Feminists call for abolition of marriage
As Sweden's Feminist Initiative meets in Örebro on Friday for its annual general meeting, one of the group's more radical proposals has been revealed: the abolition of marriage. Instead the group, which is expected to become a fully-fledged political party following the meeting, wants a 'cohabitation law' which ignores gender - and allows for more than two people to be included. The proposal is one of the group's 'prioritised political demands' which the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet got hold of before the meeting. FI founder and board member, Tiina Rosenberg, told the paper that the group wants to create "a modern concept which does not favour and promote couples and heterosexual norms". "The history of marriage is not about love and living together, it's about ownership," she added. However, Tiina Rosenberg made it clear that that does not mean that anything goes in FI's Brave New World: "A man who lives with eight women in a patriarchal structure, where the man decides and the women obey - that's not what we're aiming for," said Rosenberg. FI's other demands are no less controversial. The group wants to introduce a six hour work day and completely individualised parental benefits to force men to take off as much time as women to care for their children. The all-female board also says it wants to introduce gender quotas on company boards.
