She was asked her opinion of Anita Sarkeesian:
This anonymous radical feminist is 25 years old, but provides no information about her education or background. She is a tabula rasa. We know nothing about her except for her all-encompassing hatred of males, who are always wrong about everything:
Male Opinions Are Not Objective Facts
Men are socialized since birth to think their feelings and thoughts are the objective truth. They are taught they are generally right about something, unless contradicted by another male with equal or more authority. men subconciously believe they are firmly right about things so much they won’t even consider alternative perspectives unless it comes from a place of higher authority.
Men are socialized to believe women are inherently wrong, and that is why women are “crazy”, because it is so difficult for men to even consider the possibility that they don’t know shit. This is why men often offer strong opinions on topics they just heard about, especially if they’re contradicting a woman.
This is because people will respect a man’s opinion and give his words weight even if he has zero background in the subject because men are considered credible by default. Women are considered wrong by default and must argue their way to display their truth, no matter how strong their credentials.
Men probably have to tell themselves they’re logical all the time just to keep up the lie that feeds their ego. Thinking is difficult work for a man who is used to instantly being told he is right, while women are constantly being argued against and therefore exploring the topics more deeply and doing more thinking.
A summary translation: “Men know nothing. Everything any man claims to know is an expression of his own arrogant prejudice. No woman should ever trust any man, because all men are fools.”
She got more than 1,800 notes for that denunciation of males, basically a restatement of what Rebecca Solnit argues in her popular feminist book Men Explain Things to Me. Could I make a counter-argument? Perhaps, but why bother? Feminists never listen to anything a man says. We understand why feminism’s First Rule for Men is, “SHUT UP!”
This is why feminism is not about equality. No feminist wants to be “equal” to that despicable subhuman creature, the male. Feminism means males must be silenced, because no male has any truth to speak. Men are stupid and untrustworthy; feminists have a monopoly on truth and virtue. From the feminist perspective, everything about males is invalid, inferior, irrelevant, bad and wrong. Therefore, every woman must gratefully embrace the knowledge imparted to her by feminists. By invoking this crypto-Marxist totalitarian concept — women as a revolutionary class, led by an intellectual vanguard — feminists thereby anoint themselves as Omniscient Arbiters of Truth.
Any 25-year-old feminist with a Tumblr blog can join the pantheon of Olympian Goddesses who dispense immortal wisdom to the Sacred Sisterhood. Oh, did I mention she wants to “Desexualize the Female Body” because “F–k Your Fascist Beauty Standards”?
You see her feminism involves a sort of sour-grapes rationalization. Men do not value her opinion because (a) men are stupid and inferior, and (b) men “think their feelings and thoughts are the objective truth.” She is disappointed that men “sexualize” women, evaluating her in terms of her desirability as a romantic companion. This involves “beauty standards” that are “fascist,” by which she means that beauty is undemocraticbecause it is not equally distributed among all women. Some women are more beautiful than others, and this is wrong because . . .?
Well, it’s just wrong. How dare you ask a feminist to explain herself?
Like all radical egalitarian philosophies, feminism appeals to the ambitious malcontent who, feeling herself somehow disadvantaged by the status quo, dreams of a utopia in which women will be treated according to a “fair” standard, which is to say, a standard that will make her Queen Bee of the hive. A woman who declares that she is “oppressed” by “male supremacy” usually means nothing more than this: Men don’t treat her the way she would like to be treated, and so she wants to destroy civilization as we know it, and institute a gynocracy in which women will be empowered to inflict humiliating punishment on men. Whatever else feminism may be, it is always in large measure a sadistic revenge fantasy whose strongest appeal is to women of unlimited cruelty. If any man doesn’t like her “feminist perspective,” his disagreement proves he’s a “whiny piss baby,” and she will celebrate by drinking your tears.
She hates you. She really, really hates you. You’re probably “a fedora wearing doritos munching mountain dew drinking reddit bro.”
