Candace Cameron (DJ from Full House!) said she's submissive and let's her husband take charge, cause she wants a happy marriage.
But reading the comments in the article, feminists seem to frown upon a woman taking charge and making her own decisions for herself and her family. Why is this? I thought feminists were all about female empowerment?
"In other words, she lets him boss her around?"
"f that's what works for them then great. Although it just seems to me that she can't make her own decisions, which definitely is not 'bridled strength', it's pathetic."
^These comments were from the UK & Australia so it's not only American women who hold these views.

"Real", original feminism was about equality in CHOICE and equality in RESPECT for women, but Radical Feminists (RadFems) hijacked the movement and taught women that choosing to be submissive, or choosing to be a housewife instead of having a career outside the home was not only NOT a valid choice, but made you a "traitor to your gender" and that only women who acted like men and proved that they could do everything a man could do were moral and right.
And even though they haven't been FULLY successful with these ideas, there are plenty of women who now think that way, ESPECIALLY women in collage or just out of college, because the Women's Studies programs have been completely taken over by RadFems. RadFems make up nearly every Women's Studies professor, and naturally are the biggest student proponents.
Most women who live in the real world figure out that RadFem is crap by their late 20s or early 30s, but women who live in academic or artistic (or just liberal/socialist) bubbles often champion these ideas into their 40s, and they tend to be loud and "in-your-face" about it. Even though RadFem is a very minority opinion, they are so "loud" as a group that they manage to make their views seem a lot more mainstream than they actually are. And younger people, who have less real-world experience, often fall for it, at least until the real world proves those ideas to be false.
Again, REAL feminism is about giving women the CHOiCE to choose their own path. And just as it is perfectly okay for women to CHOOSE a career, it's also perfectly okay to CHOOSE to be a mother and a home-maker. RadFems do not want women to have that option, though.4
