Geez. This has been a cliche and a slander for 200 years.

The truth is that most people consider feminists as deadly dull.  Further, they are viewed as anti-men.  Eliot, hardly a feminist, at least did not belong to the "Keep them barefoot and pregnant" contingent.  That was a joke, by the way, Nancy.  But, I wonder if he wanted children or not.
