Feminists and intellectuals

Feminists and intellectuals were the greatest threat to the church of my youth, or so I was told directly and indirectly in sooo many ways. The LDS message to young women was… Stay stupid but get a degree so we can say you are smart. Accept inferiority but praise and embrace it so we can say it is justified. And whatever you do, deny your individual value independent of marriage to a priesthood holder so that without him, you will feel worthless. This way, we can say that of your own free will, Mormonism completes you.
