Rebecca Klatch, "Women against Feminism"
"In social conservative eyes, when individuality and freedom of self extend to women as well as to men, marriage, the family, and society itself are threatened....Feminism is a threat, then because, when women pursue self-interest, not only is the family neglected but also ultimately women become like men. Hence, "macho feminism" is destructive because if everyone pursues their own interest, no one is left to look out for the larger good, that is, to be altruistic, to be the nurturer, the caretaker, the mother."
[In social conservative eyes] "the underlying image of men is of creatures with uncontrollable passions and little sense of commitment or loyalty. Only moral and legal authority can restrain the savagery of male nature."
