As promised in the comments section of Gucci Little Piggy.
My wife has reservations about my blog. She thinks it’s just a bunch of preaching to a small and somewhat inconsequential choir, mostly made up of men. She’s mentioned at times when she’s most annoyed at me that as long as nobody is trying to get women interested, any movement is bound to fail. I think she has a point. I haven’t met many female WNs, and it probably is a pretty big problem for the future of a movement.
Hold that thought for a second.
Also, after blogging on WordPress for months, I finally decided to see what the “Freshly Pressed” button was last night while my wife was at work and the kids were in bed. Ten percent–easy–of the “Pressed” blog entries were feminist or militantly “for women by women” blogs. I looked through several of them with an open mind, because my thinking was that self-described feminists are movement-oriented anyway and maybe they can come to see that a future of darkening skin hues won’t be any better for them than the hell they are convinced they live in now. We all know about the statistics on race and rape and anti-woman violence and such.
So I took my time and read some of these blogs, my mind boggling at the stereotypical and consistent vapidity of the content.
I took away some lessons after reading through the following blogs:
http://samanthashelner.wordpress.com/–Women love to post pictures of themselves and friends. They like the focus to be on them. This is a stereotype, yes. But judging from this blog, stereotypes are true.
LESSON: Feminists are attention whores.
http://makemeasammich.org/–I left a comment on this one, as they were having a cliched feminist conversation about how if you go to a party and get passing-out drunk, you have IN NO WAY contributed to your fate if you are raped and you shouldn’t blame yourself.
As someone who has done some work in the tourist information industry in the New Orleans area, I can tell you that that mindset is an excellent way to end up body parts in a canal. Being intoxicated is dangerous for A MAN in strange surroundings. It’s even more dangerous for a woman.
But you know what? If a man gets plastered drunk and, while wobbling home, gets jumped by two assholes and his face gets kicked in, you know what he says if you tell him he was stupid? He says “I know,man. I was a sitting duck.” But not a feminist.
LESSON:Feminists refuse to be realistic or take responsibility for themselves and use alloplastic reasoning.
http://pennygetslucky.wordpress.com/–This one was so full of cliches that I thought she must be some sort of conservative agent provacateuse. (Yes, that’s the female form of the noun.) But it appears she is for real.
On this blog, she writes an angry letter to her devout Christian father bitching at him for not dropping his religious beliefs and celebrating the fact that she is a “bisexual.” Then, later, she doubles down and says that it simply isn’t good enough if her family TOLERATES her SWPL, upper-middle-class, daddy-paid-for-my-gender-studies-major lifestyle choice. No. Tolerance isn’t good enough, you see. She wants ACCEPTANCE.
If my parents were to say, “We don’t understand what it’s like to be queer, because being queer is wrong and those feelings are sent from Satan, and everyone who is queer is disgusting and a bad person,” then not only is that a worldview that conflicts with my own, but is also actively hateful and discriminatory toward me…
If it makes them happy, then I am happy that they have it. I would never tell my parents – or anyone, for that matter – that it’s wrong to have religious views and they have to stop being religious…
But their rights end where mine begin, too. I have a right to live my life in the open. I have a right to make the decisions that are best for me, that make me happiest and bring me fulfillment. I have a right to protect myself from those that do me harm.
Emphasis mine. But that’s a pretty loose definition of “harm.”
I left this comment:
“Mom. Dad. Sometimes I eat pussy. Celebrate this fact with me or I CUT YOU OUT OF MY LIFE.” Is this the best way to go about it? Try stomping and crying.
But she didn’t accept it.
LESSON: Feminists expect people to bend their wills to juvenile whims and express no dissension. And they are obnoxiously hypersensitive.
http://feministssa.com—A bizarre mix of post-Apartheid social theory in pre-total-genocide South Africa. Boring, trite crap about beauty and the media and race.
LESSON: Feminists are hostile to race-related causes.
http://nelizadrew.wordpress.com/–More rape stuff. There’s a uptick in the number of articles and feature stories about “how not to raise rapists.” They were discussing this stuff when I was in college when we had to read Peggy Reeves Sanday’s bullshit about “rape-prone societies.”
This blogger believes that rape is a socially-programmed behavior that The Patriarchy tacitly encourages by BEING The Patriarchy. Part of her blog is a litany of crap like the following, all ostensibly aimed at we men who are too dim to figure out why rape is such a big deal. Duh!:
If you wouldn’t want a gay man/woman you find unattractive/monkey-wielding a pipe to penetrate your orifices (with a penis, a finger, or said pipe) because you did one too many tequila shots, don’t rape a woman who drank too much.
If you wouldn’t want a gay man/woman you find unattractive/monkey-wielding a pipe to penetrate your orifices (with a penis, a finger, or said pipe) because you agreed to go out (even casually or as friends) with said man/woman/monkey, don’t rape a woman who goes out with you.
She wants us rapists-in-training to EMPATHIZE, you see. The reason men rape, in this person’s mind, is because they don’t know they aren’t supposed to.
Well. It seems to me that the very thing that delineates a rapist from a normal man is an inherent lack of empathy on his part and no amount of blog reading is going to fix that. That’s why their dicks get harder when women beg for mercy.
Rapists aren’t ignorant sexists. They’re antisocial sickos. That’s why non-Feminist Patriarchs like me support LYNCHING rapists. Not because a rapist is “damaging another man’s goods,” but because rapists are quite often psychopaths. And even if they aren’t, it’s too much work to sort them out. Let God do it. Get a rope.
LESSON: Feminists are naive liberals who hold normal men in intellectual contempt.
Maybe you’re wondering how all of this ties to Adria Richards. Don’t worry. I didn’t forget.
Well, if you want to know why she did what she did when two idiots were making junior high dick jokes when she could have just “shushed” them, consider again the lessons I learned in 45 minutes of blog browsing:
1. Feminists are attention whores.
2. Feminists refuse to be realistic or take responsibility for themselves and use alloplastic reasoning.
3. Feminists expect people to bend their wills to juvenile whims and express no dissension. And they are obnoxiously hypersensitive.
4. Feminists are naive liberals who hold normal men in intellectual contempt.
So, maybe some women want to be WNs. At this point in the history of Womyn’s History, however, it doesn’t look likely.
