While monitoring online feminism, I noticed someone had RT’d@FFigureFBust, posting a cartoon with this feminist “joke”:
Man: “You wear too much makeup.”
Woman: “You consume too much oxygen.”
Man: “It’s just my opinion, you’d look better withou–”
Woman: “So would you. Without oxygen.”
Woman: “F–k your opinions.”
This is a variation of the feminist attack on “mansplaining,” made famous by Rebecca Solnit’s book Men Explain Things to Me. Despite all the caveats and disclaimers with which Ms. Solnit qualified her argument, it can be summarized as feminism’s two-word message to men: “SHUT UP!”
Feminism is ultimately about complete contempt for men, per se. If you are a man, nothing you say is of interest to any feminist. Everything men do is bad and everything men say is wrong. This categorical certainty — the absolute moral and intellectual inferiority of males — is so commonly accepted among feminists that none of them ever question it, because they never even notice it, for the same reason fish don’t notice water.
Saturday I published a 4,000-word exploration of this (“The Queering of Feminism and the Silencing of Heterosexual Masculinity”) showing how anti-male attitudes are fundamental to “feminist theory, which condemns heterosexuality as an oppressive ‘institution’ forcibly imposed on women by the social system of male domination known as patriarchy.”
Feminists believe all women collectively suffer from systemic oppression, and that all men participate in and benefit from this oppression, by which men obtain unjust privilege. It is not necessary for a man to say or do anything harmful in order for feminist to hate him. He is male, and therefore he can never deserve anything except hate. “Being constantly insulted by feminists . . . is something men are expected never to notice.”
Feminist rhetoric is a method of psychological warfare, intended to inspire all women to embrace this contemptuous attitude toward men, and also to demoralize and confuse the male enemy. Feminists deliberately insult men, falsely accusing them of complicity in wrongdoing, and if any man dares object to this kind of anti-male hate propaganda, his protest of innocence will be cited as proof of his guilt (a tactic known as “Kafkatrapping”). This is why feminism is actually not about equality, because if feminists believed men were equal, a man might be permitted to say a word in his own defense. Instead, feminist discourse is a constant stream of accusations against men, who have no right to respond to these insults. Like the accused in Stalin’s “show trials”of the 1930s, men are expected to confess their guilt, to denounce themselves for their crimes as vrag naroda, and to testify against others who were complicit in their counterrevolutionary plots.
So here was this cartoon posted by @FFigureFBust, a typical expression of feminist “humor” in which the punchline is “F–k your opinions.” Let the question be asked, “What kind of man would be such a fool as to tell a woman that she is wearing ‘too much makeup’?” Certainly no wise man would ever say this to a woman, not even to his own wife. However, men often do express a general dislike for “too much makeup,” preferring a more “natural” appearance. Of course, as any woman can explain, what some men praise as the “natural look” usually requires quite a bit of work to achieve, and a woman must be highly skilled in the use of makeup to make it seem as though she isn’t wearing makeup at all.
However, this cartoon isn’t really about makeup, is it?
No, this cartoon is about “SHUT UP!”
The cartoon is intended to depict men generally as clueless and idiotic, and to convey the message that no woman should ever care about any man’s opinion. Feminists will often emphasize this disdain in regard to heterosexual male preferences about women’s appearance and behavior. Whatever it is that a heterosexual man may like or dislike about women, in particular or in general, no feminist ever wants him to say it. This has the effect, of course, of granting feminists an absolute monopoly in terms of offering advice to women. No matter how disastrous the result of following feminist advice may be (e.g., a herpes infection), feminists tell women that the patriarchy is to blame for these bad outcomes.
Now, as soon as I push the “publish” button on this, it will be as if I’ve lit the fuse on a hate-bomb. Some readers will say rude things about@FFigureFBust and, as a result, I will be accused of engaging in “harassment” and condoning “misogyny.” However, you see, it doesn’t matter what I say or do. Nothing will prevent feminists from slandering me, because I am a heterosexual male, after all, and what is feminist rhetoric except an endless slander campaign against heterosexual males?
All I can do is point to examples of feminism’s hateful rhetoric, analyze and describe the significance. My purpose is to inform readers who, although they probably understand that there is something profoundly wrong with feminist ideology, do not have the leisure to engage in this kind of in-depth analysis of feminist rhetoric. Without a proper analysis, however, men might make the mistake of arguing with a feminist, which is futile, because feminism is always a lecture, never a debate.
Well, when I called attention to @FFigureFBust’s feminist “joke,” this resulted in a brief colloquy in which I made the point that “feminists constantly lecture the world about their opinions, and permit no man to say a word in reply.” She asked why I had addressed her, but when I went to reply to that question . . . blocked. So here is your answer, Ms. Horne.
Does she understand my answer? Am I attempting to persuade her that she is wrong? No, because no feminist has ever admitted that she was wrong about anything. Merely by calling herself a feminist, she declares to the world her belief in her own omniscience. A feminist believes she knows everything about everything, and no man knows anything at all.
Here, watch her 17-minute video about feminism:
Has she stated her case persuasively? Would anyone care to transcribe her argument, such as it is? I got about 2 minutes in — “women are closer to my heart and are more relate-able to me” — before my eyes began to glaze over from the effort of trying to decode her British accent. She said something about female genital mutilation and girls being married off at age 11, as if anyone not named Omar or Mohammad might be in favor of such practices. This is sort of like environmentalists who declare they’re in favor of clean water, as if they expect someone to argue against clean water. Feminists are always going on about some obvious atrocity and declaring that anyone who disagrees with them is defending these atrocities. This is why feminists make blatantly false claims about the prevalence of rape (e.g., the 1-in-5 myth), in order to provoke their critics to express doubt about these claims, at which point, feminists accuse their critics of being pro-rape. Feminists believe they are entitled to invent any “fact” that will advance their agenda, and then engage in character assassination against anyone who objects to feminist lies.
The all-time classic of feminist dishonesty was the Great Super Bowl Domestic Violence Hoax of 1993, when it was claimed that Super Bowl Sunday was “the biggest day of the year for violence against women.” There was no evidence for this claim, and yet reporters rushed to print as fact that on the day of the NFL championship, domestic abuse hotlines were “flooded with more calls from victims than on any other day of the year,” to quote the Boston Globe. Christina Hoff Sommers exposed this lie and other examples of feminist myth-making in her 1994 book Who Stole Feminism? Yet despite the documented proof that feminists habitually lie, here we are more than 20 years later, still expected to pretend that feminism’s credibility is beyond question!
Never Take Advice From Feminists, unless your goal in life is to become a Crazy Cat Lady, which is one of the few subjects where feminist expertise is useful. “Feminism is a movement of crazy women, by crazy women, forcrazy women,” and you should doubt the mental health of any woman who calls herself a feminist. Therefore, never talk to a feminist:
Guys: Learn to take a hint. Learn to walk away.
If a woman tells you she is a feminist, say nothing and walk away.
No feminist wants to hear what a man has to say, and life is too short to waste your time taking to feminists. Just walk away.
Leave feminists alone, and then they can complain about that.
Every day, feminists prove there is no point in arguing with them, and anyone attempting to argue with @FFigureFBust will be blocked. Because she is a feminist, you may be sure that she will never acknowledge what I’ve written here in reply to her question. Feminist “success” requires them to pretend that there is no valid criticism of their ideology, nor any reason why intelligent people should oppose their agenda. Feminism is a cult which claims a monopoly on truth, and no member of the cult can admit the possibility that anyone outside the feminist cult is qualified to dispute this monopolgy. Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and the silencing of men is necessary to the movement’s triumph. Well, good luck trying to shut me up.
