I missed that thread, but as I understand it the main reason for
feminist opposition to PK is the overt statements of the leadership
regarding the status of women in the family--mainly that the men
should take back control (not ask, take). On the other hand, as
noted by several prominent feminists this week, if a membership in PK
results in the man being more attentive and caring and responsible to
his family, then that improves the situation of women, men and their
children, and it's difficult to argue with that.
