O feminismo contra-natura

por Samuel de Paiva Pires, em 23.07.13

Roger Scruton, Modern Manhood


«But just as surely are the feminists wrong to believe that we are completely liberated from our biological natures and that the traditional sex roles emerged only from a social power struggle in which men were victorious and women enslaved. The traditional roles existed in order to humanize our genes and also to control them. The masculine and feminine were ideals, through which the animal was transfigured into the personal. Sexual morality was an attempt to transform a genetic need into a personal relation. It existed precisely to stop men from scattering their seed through the tribe, and to prevent women from accepting wealth and power, rather than love, as the signal for reproduction. It was the cooperative answer to a deep-seated desire, in both man and woman, for the "helpmeet" who will make life meaningful.

In other words, men and women are not merely biological organisms. They are also moral beings. Biology sets limits to our behavior but does not dictate it. The arena formed by our instincts merely defines the possibilities among which we must choose if we are to gain the respect, acceptance, and love of one another. Men and women have shaped themselves not merely for the purpose of reproduction but in order to bring dignity and kindness to the relations between them. To this end, they have been in the business of creating and re-creating the masculine and the feminine ever since they realized that the relations between the sexes must be established by negotiation and consent, rather than by force. The difference between traditional morality and modern feminism is that the first wishes to enhance and to humanize the difference between the sexes, while the second wishes to discount or even annihilate it. In that sense, feminism really is against nature.»

Caro Samuel:

Obrigado por mais um substancioso naco da marca Scruton, sempre saboroso de um bom senso, tão raro hoje. Mas, permita-me acrescentar que não se trata apenas de "helpmeet": é o misterium conjuntionis para a realização da plenitude do humano - homem-e-mulher -, segundo o revelado no Genesis hebraico-cristão (e apontado  noutras tradições, que falam do andrógino primordial).
