With the myriad challenges facing our great Dominion today, Justin Trudeau took the time to pen an essay for Marie Claire magazine on why he’s a feminist and why it’s a good idea for families to raise boys as feminists.
“All of us benefit when women and girls have the same opportunities as men and boys – and it’s on all of us to make that a reality. Our sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism.”
But hang on: does this mean our self-described feminist PM was guilty of sexism in 2015 when he purposely appointed a cabinet with an equal number of male and female MPs?
Because such a move says more about virtue signalling and less about being an advocate for true equality.
What if some female MPs are now cabinet ministers solely due to their sex rather than merit, or if there’s an abundance of female talent in the Liberal ranks but he’s limiting them to JUST 50 per cent of cabinet posts?
Our feminist PM has provided yet another example of how feminist ideals can hinder rather than help the cause of women.
