Hating the Natural Family: Linda Gordon’s Passion for Destruction


Quote: “... No woman should have to deny herself any opportunities because of her special responsibilities to her children. ... Families will be finally destroyed only when a revolutionary social and economic organization permits people’s needs for love and security to be met in ways that do not impose divisions of labor, or any external roles, at all.” — Functions of the Family, Linda Gordon, WOMEN: A Journal of Liberation, Fall, 1969

Linda Gordon later became a history professor at NYU specializing, not surprisingly, in the history of the family, affording her the opportunity to make a significant contribution to creating a tendentious distorted, censored, version of the narrative of the history of the family, a narrative created collectively by a large number of like-minded marxist feminists filtered through ideological tunnel-vision theory of fundamentalist “social constructionism” which  is now mistaken for the definitive and objective account of the topic.
