    “But the weakness of these proposals isn't that they're unworkable, or even that they're 'traditional,' but that they're not traditional enough. For most of history, men and women worked together, in a productive household, and this is the model reactionary feminism should aim to retrieve.”
    Mary Harrington

    Introduction

    Reactionary Feminism, ReactFem for short, is a culturally Reactionary, and otherwise variable ideology which believes that Patriarchy is positive system for women and that women should embrace a certain level of domesticity. Particularly, Reactionary Feminism rejects the ideas of Sexual Liberationism and supports ideals aligned with Maternalism.

    The main unifying beliefs of Reactionary Feminists are that men and women have different physiologies and different goals, and that Patriarchy is the most effective system to fulfill both the goals of men and women. They both believe that Progressivism is harmful to women due to the stress of working life and the objectification of their bodies that comes with Sexual Liberationism.

    Reactionary Feminism says that the state of women should be analyzed materialistically rather than abstractly, meaning that we should look at the literal, physical things that women want rather than simply ideals or concepts. The differences in these conditions and goals and the ones of men show the implications of male and female power. Simply put, women are not interchangeable, and that idea only exists to empower the women at the top.

    Reactionary Feminist Perspective of Women's History

    Pre-Modern

    Before the Industrial Revolution, most households were organized in what experts now call "Productive Households." Aside from the homes of the aristocracy, men, women, and even children would be working—mostly for subsidence, but also for profit. For example, if a family was a farming one, the man may do the harvesting while the woman would do the baking. Both of these activities contribute to the productivity of the household, meaning women have autonomy and importance within the home.

    The organization was possible because the vast majority of work was done in the home, allowing women to form their communities in close proximity to their children, allowing them to partake both in working and in domestic roles. All prior to the Industrial Revolution, women in the lower classes all had the same value and opportunity as the men in the lower classes. Differences in opportunity only became apparent in the upper classes.

    Industrial Revolution

    During the Industrial Revolution, work began being separated from the home. If you wanted to work, you would have to go out to the factory, fundamentally dividing the domestic and market roles that women could formerly participate in both. Due to this, women had to chose—stay home and take care of domestic tasks only, or give up the domestic life entirely and head into the market.

    From this dichotomy, two main groups for female empowerment took hold: the Feminists and the Culture of Domesticity (or Cult of True Womanhood). Feminists would argue that women can and should participate in market roles (which they believe to be the more important ones), even if that challenges the domestic roles. The Culture of Domesticity argues that domestic roles are just as important as market roles and that women should prioritize their roles in families.

    "The Cyborg Revolution"

    Mary Harrington argues that Feminism truly beat the Culture of Domesticity in the 1960s with the invention and legalization of the contraceptive and eventually abortion. This essentially meant the triumph of market roles of domestic ones since the culture around contraception and eventually abortion argues that a woman's "independence" is more important than the dependent (the fetus) of the mother.

    This is called the "Cyborg Revolution" because Mary Harrington views the contraceptive pill as the first Transhumanist invention since it does not solve a medical problem, rather changing healthy biology in order to make life more "convenient" for women. To her, essentially of all modern Feminism is an extension of this Transhumanist philosophy of using technology to flatten the gaps between men and women.

    Reactionary Feminist History

    Reactionary Feminism has arguable existed since the Industrial Revolution in the Culture of Domesticity. However, its modern version, created by Mary Harrington, began in 2021 with her article "Reactionary Feminism," followed by her book "Feminism against Progress," in 2023. Here, she argues that the "atomization" of society caused by individualism seriously harms all women—except for those in the upper-classes since those women can offload the consequences onto other women. Since then, the movement has gained some traction, with a few interviews of Mary Harrington having been done on news articles and YouTube videos.

    Schools of Thought

    Mary Harrington Thought

    Mary Harrington was the one to argue that Liberal Feminism began during the Industrial Revolution. She argues that in the modern day and the coming "Fourth Industrial Revolution" (or Age of the Machine), the progressive values of Feminism harm women disproportionately more than men. Particularly, she says that the materialistic and individualistic tenets of Feminism are incongruous with the desires of most women and that Liberal Feminism only benefits a small portion of women—that is, women that are capable in masculine roles (or are very wealthy)—at the expense of all other women. After all, houses needs to be cleaned, but women are frowned upon if they dedicate their lives to doing it. Thus, she argues that the end result of feminism is a future where a small minority of women sit on top while the rest of women must serve them as maids.

    Mary Harrington is sympathetic to the goals of Feminists as she used to be one herself, but she now finds the movement immature, small-minded, and based on fear and selfishness rather than rationality.[1] This model of Reactionary Feminism does not advocate for strict genders roles, but it does state that women being more domestic would be significantly better for women overall. Generally, Mary Harrington states that the following three points being taken would move us towards a society that is much better for women:

    1. Revalue the institution of marriage
    2. Leave men's spaces alone (stop making everything co-ed)
    3. Abolish abortion and contraception

    Traditionalist Thought

    This is the movement that began during the Enlightenment. It argues that due to the differences in men and women in physiology and evolutionary psychology, Traditionalism is the most empowering system for women. It argues, similarly to Mary Harrington Thought, that the materialism of the modern age is harmful to women. However, it also argues that Sexual Egalitarianism is misguided and that women should strive towards traditionalist roles and virtues, particularly those in Abrahamic Religions. Everything else is believed to be degenerate as it will ultimately lead to the decrease in birth rates and the destruction of humanity.

    Also unlike Mary Harrington Thought, Traditionalist Thought does not necessarily have an economic preference (although it should prefer systems that are close to Reactionaryism). It is also less materialistic and more spiritual, relying moreso on biblical or otherwise religious values.

    Personality

    Reactionary Feminism acts similarly to reactionaryism, heavily opposed to progressivism and degeneracy in any form it takes. Other ideologies, especially Feminists, will often find her confused or contradictory. However, Reactionary Feminism sympathizes with them somewhat as she finds their ideals understandable but ultimately misplaced.

    Frenemies

    • Conservative Feminism - You're on the right track, and you've given much to your husband, but we both know he'll be so much happier if you gave him a bit more! Also, cut it out with that Karen attitude; it's not ladylike.
    • Libertarian Conservative Feminism - Same with you!
    • Matriarchy - Motherhood is truly one of the greatest virtues a women can seek, but we are not fit to rule.
    • Matriarchal Monarchism - See above. Plus, "Queen Consort" sounds so much more natural.
    • Reactionary Modernism - Maybe you should get off the computer and get that family you want so much.
    • Men's Liberation - Sometimes, times need to change, but you still have your roles as I have mine.
    • CMNFism - Taking off women's clothes is NOT traditional. Although, I guess it isn't my place to question it?
