Reflections on Feminism, Atheism, and Skepticism

Jeremy Bentham the famous utilitarian and skeptic said the “Natural rights are nonsense on stilts.”

Skepticism is skepticism against rape.
Skepticism is skepticism about womens’ experiences.
Skepticism is skepticism against womens’ rights.

Skepticism is a form of reductionism and feminists have a more systemic and embodied view of truth.
Skepticism undermines subjectivity.
Skepticism undermines intuition.
Skepticism in its most virulent forms
Skepticism undermines science and everything else.

There is no intrinsic value to a framework that undermines everything. That kills all knowledge and rolls back the clock on all progress.

How do you check that? How can skepticism be more balanced?
