Do You Want to Be a ‘Male Feminist’?

http://theothermccain.com/2015/03/30/do-you-want-to-be-a-male-feminist/

“Feminism is organized insanity. Why be merely crazy, when you can turn your mental illness into a political movement?”
Robert Stacy McCain, Jan. 29

If there is anything feminists hate more than Christianity, heterosexuality, America and capitalism, it’s a “male feminist.”

The quotation marks are required because “male feminist” is an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms. Feminism is a women’s movement, organized for women and led by women, and there is nothing any man can do that will qualify him for membership in the movement.

However, this self-evident truth does not prevent “progressive” males from trying to leverage feminism to their own advantage. The “male feminist” denounces his fellow men — you know, those hateful misogynists over there in the patriarchy — in an effort to persuade feminists that he is an exception to the rule. He is not a sexist oppressor.He does not view women as sex objects. He just wants equality (and a “liberated” girlfriend who doesn’t demand monogamy or a long-term commitment or any of that other bourgeois “responsibility” stuff).

The prototypical “male feminist” was Hugo Schwyzer, a deranged professor who routinely slept with his community college students, nearly killed a woman and had a psychotic meltdown after he was called out for his gross misconduct.

Feminism is based on the belief that all men (collectively) oppress allwomen (collectively), so that humanity is divided into two groups, male oppressors and female victims. As members of the oppressor group, males are by definition part of the problem (variously termed “patriarchy,” “male supremacy” or “misogyny”) and only women, as members of the victim group, can be permitted to have any voice or influence in defining the solution to this problem. Karen Ingala Smith has explained that anything a man says about feminism contributes to the “silencing of women in the public sphere,” which means that “women’s subordination is reinforced.” Men only seek to be recognized as “feminists” so they can play a role of “leadership and power”:

Those who have power and benefit from it in varying degrees generally do not cede it and share it — they protect and reinforce it. . . .
[Women] are entitled to demand our rights without apology, without reference to how this affects men, without sorting out all the men’s problems too. . . .
That is not to say there is no role for men, just not the role they are used to of leadership and power. Men are very welcome to say that they support us and to consult with us to see in what way they can be most useful to the cause and we will tell them.

In other words, guys: “The First Rule of Feminism Is Shut Up.”

Nevertheless, “progressive” males continue begging for scraps from the feminist table and feminists sometimes give them answers:

Question: Do you believe that there is anything men can do to aid feminism despite not being able to be feminists themselves?
Answer:  Oh, there’s plenty men can do! Unfortunately (for men), none of that gets you the hero status and women fawning over you that most men seem to be after when they decide to engage in feminist causes. Some things that men can do to help are:
– Confront other men in male-dominated spaces when they display sexist behavior (even if there’s no woman looking).
– Do not watch porn or participate in the sex industry in any way. Tell your male friends to do the same.
– Donate money to institutions dedicated to helping women.
– Listen to women and believe them without questioning or playing devil’s advocate when they talk about their experiences.
– Use your privileged voice to create opportunities for women. For example, you can recommend a female coworker for a promotion to your boss, or make sure he pays attention to her work. Women are often invisible or ignored.
– Understand the importance of female-only spaces and protect those spaces. Do not try to invade them and do not let other men do the same.
– Do not let the women in your life do more than their share of housework. Clean your stuff, wash your dishes, change your kid’s diapers, cook your food, and do all of that without being asked to or expecting special praise.
– Respect women’s boundaries and spaces. Do not take more than your share of a seat on a bus or a train, for example, and do not push women around verbally. Women are socialized to be accomodating and will often not enforce their own boundaries for fear of male violence, even if they’re terribly uncomfortable, so you have to recognize this discomfort and back off.
– Do not judge a woman for her appearance. Avoid commenting on it, and never compare her to another woman. If you want to praise a woman, prefer to focus on her intelligence or skills.
– Work to dismantle male supremacy from the inside. Combat your own male socialization, your own entitlement and your own tendency to violence and aggression. Question everything that’s gendered. And do not become defensive or try to justify yourself when a woman calls you out on your male-dominant behavior. Do not use tired cliches like “not all men are like that!” or “but I’m a nice guy!”. Instead, examine your behavior and try to understand why you’re being called out.
– And more important of all, do all of the above without expecting any special reward! Your reward is to be participating in creating a better world that’s fair for everybody. You don’t get to be a “special” man, you don’t get free passes for anything, you don’t get to stand out for being decent. If you feel you deserve anything extra for being a decent human being, that’s your male entitlement at work. Afterall, if you’re helping women to make yourself look good, you are not helping at all.
Hope the info’s useful!

Quite useful, indeed! This was written by a young blogger who describes herself as “The Angry Hairy Lesbian Feminist they’ve warned you about,”and her point is exactly correct: No man can ever expect praise from a feminist, because nothing any man does can ever qualify him for the admiration, trust or respect of a feminist. Because he is male (and therefore, by feminist definition, an oppressor) he is undeserving of love from any female (who is, by definition, his victim).

Someone should write a book to explain this to you guys . . .

1.) She tried to extort him for 7 Million

Quote:According to the letter — obtained by TMZ Sports — the alleged victim’s lawyer, Patricia Carroll, demanded $7 MIL to settle her client’s claims against FSU and Winston, telling Cornwell, “If we settle, you will never hear from my client or me again — in the press or anywhere.”

2.) She claimed she never slept with, or would sleep with, a black guy. When her boyfriend was black

Quote:Cornwell also says Carroll claimed her client’s sexual encounter had to be rape, because she would never sleep with a “black boy.” Fact is … the alleged victim’s boyfriend at the time was black

Link

3.) She had multiple semen on her.

Quote:Meggs said there was a 2ND MAN’S DNA discovered … insinuating the accuser slept with another person around the time she had sex with Jameis. Meggs said the 2nd man’s DNA belonged to an unidentified person.

Meggs says Jameis’ DNA was on the accuser’s underwear … and the 2nd person’s DNA was on her shorts. He also said there were no outward signs of trauma.

4.) She stated she was very drunk. She lied about that

Quote:Meggs said the accuser’s blood alcohol level was .04 at the time it was taken … which Meggs described as “not very high.”

Take this into fact that this is on the weekend that reminds us that Former USC coach Pete Caroll, who is in the superbowl, was going to sign Bryan Banks before he was falsely accused of rape and served time at the prime of his life and lost out in untold millions not included the freedom he lost in a barbaric environment.

 

Rotman School pulls MBA class assignment after femiwhiners complain about it

The Rotman School of Management has pulled a controversial class assignment from a first-year MBA course after concerns were raised about its portrayal of women.

The assignment, issued last week for a class on capital markets, features a fictional female business student who is offered a public relations job with her “favourite company of all time,” jeweller Tiffany and Co. She is struggling to decide which compensation package she should accept.

Several students in the University of Toronto’s graduate business school were openly dismayed by the assignment, saying there is “just so much wrong” with its portrayal of “Elle Forest,” a ditzy female who requires the assistance of her Yale-educated boyfriend to figure out which compensation package she should accept.

The assignment, which the Star has viewed, notes Forest “really didn’t want any of those investment banking or consulting jobs,” and was “already dreaming of more little turquoise boxes on her bookshelf, where she already had quite a nice collection.”

“Just after her upcoming graduation, Elle would be getting married in the Hamptons and moving to New York to a gorgeous apartment on the Upper East Side,” the assignment adds.

Forest, who is described as being “confused about the subtleties of the offer,” enlists the help of her Yale-educated fiancé, Chip.

“I have been offered an annual salary of $85,000, but that really just isn’t enough to pay the rent,” she tells her partner. “The HR lady also said that I could choose between an additional $20,000 signing bonus in cash or company stock options that expire and vest after 2 years and after 4 years, respectively. I just don’t know what to do.”

Chip advises Forest to refer to her Finance class notes, a suggestion she enthusiastically embraces as she is a “super-organized” student with binders that are “colour-coded and organized by term.”

GAME DEVELOPERS’ ASSOCIATION CALLS 10,000 TWEETERS ‘HARASSERS’–INCLUDING KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN

In a sign of how frenzied, panicky and intolerant the games industry establishment has become over the legitimate concerns of ordinary gamers, the International Game Developers’ Association brandedsome 10,425 Twitter accounts, including those of journalists, as harassment “offenders” in a humiliatingly ill-conceived attempt to provide a “blocking tool” to its members.

The blocking tool, which has been widely mocked online for its lack of sophistication and “blanket ban” approach, was assembled by Randi Harper, a persistent online agitator. The tool prevents users from seeing not only the tweets of users Harper has decided are implicated in harassment, but also many accounts who simply follow those users, by blocking a list of thousands of users with the use of an automated “bot.”

So indiscriminately has the block list been compiled that the IGDA’s own staff appear on it. Roberto Rosario, chair of the IGDA in Puerto Rico, is named on the list. In an acutely embarrassing moment for the Association, Rosario, who is not a GamerGate supporter, publicly threatened to resign unless his name was removed or the bot was disavowed.

He later told Breitbart: “It’s ridiculous, an insult, its anti-ethical, probably criminal and just plain false. I’ve been fighting for freedom, openness, anti-censorship and equality. A simple Google search of my name will reveal all the projects I’ve headed or collaborated on. The facts are there, clear as day.” As we went to press, Rosario had received no communication from the IGDA.

Dozens of innocent developers, journalists and even some feminist critics have been caught in the tool’s exceptionally wide net, thanks to whom they follow on Twitter. Prominent internet personality and YouTuber Total Biscuit noted this weekend the absurdity of an international trade body accepting unfit-for-purpose software and capricious, arbitrary “harassment” clarifications by an independent developer who is hardly non-partisan in the ongoing GamerGate controversy.

He also criticised the “echo chamber” mentality that is leading to such heavy-handed and absurd attempts to stifle debate. This is the third or perhaps fourth time a block list or block bot has been assembled by opponents of the GamerGate movement, which seeks better ethical standards in game journalism and rejects feminist critiques of video gamessuch as those of video-blogger Anita Sarkeesian.

Randi Harper herself is no paragon of civic virtue. She has been incarcerated on multiple occasions for what she claims were traffic offences but around which much more salacious rumours swirl, say games industry insiders. Harper denied on Saturday night that there was any more to her arrests, or the time she has spent behind bars, than her driving violations.

In the best traditions of far-Left feminist activists, Harper has also spuriously accusedGamerGate supporters such as lawyer Mike Cernovich of “rape threats.”

As with developer and prominent anti-GamerGate activist Brianna Wu, who became notorious for her sock-puppeting and trolling on message boards and social media, there is more than a whiff of hypocrisy around the woman now earnestly claiming to be a brave warrior in the war against online bullying.

The International Game Developers’ Association included a link and endorsement for Harper’s block list on its website in a new “harassment resource” section. But critics say linking to the bot, together with poorly-judged wording, has only served to spark more unkind words on social media, the exact opposite effect the calming and supportive tone on the IGDA’s website evidently wishes to elicit.

Associations ostensibly set up to support developers are now actively driving a wedge between different sections of the community, as this latest episode demonstrates. Several industry insiders have told Breitbart that the proportion of professional developers who support GamerGate may be as high as 50 per cent.

Brad Wardell, chief executive of games developer Stardock, put the figure even higher in an October interview with The Escapist: “If you were to take an actual survey of game developers who are following this issue… the overwhelming percentage of them (>75%) are sympathetic with the #GamerGate people.”

Suggestions that GamerGate supporters are exclusively white heterosexual men, as feminist campaigners have claimed in order to brand it a misogynistic hate group, were blown out of the water ten days ago when writer Oliver Campbell released a video showing the sexual, ethnic and gender diversity of the movement.

These developers, many of whom are independent and self-employed, and who support ethical reforms in game journalism and denounce harassment, now feel they are not being represented by the trade body.

One contracted female developer, who spoke anonymously to protect her job at a mid-sized American design studio, told Breitbart: “The harassment of women narrative seems to have won in the media. But that has never been what GamerGate was about. And now the IGDA is siding with people who are in it for attention and not trustworthy, tarring thousands of us with the same brush.”

And a male video game enthusiast, who asked not to be identified, wrote: “I’m 28, male, white, and a survivor of child sexual abuse and torture. I have never harassed anyone online, and the fact that I have been placed on this blocklist simply because I fall in line with the GG ideas of ethics in gaming journalism is infuriating to say the least.”

“Now I have to worry about people picking my name off that list as a way of deciding that because someone labeled me a scumbag for nothing, I get to be harassed,” he explained. “If that happens I am going to be called a lot of nasty things, and frankly just the possibility of the kind of memories and emotions that could dredge up for me is terrifying.”

He continued: “I’m just some random guy on the internet that wants ethics to be intrinsic to any kind of news media. Gaming is a hobby of mine that has helped me cope with a lot of the things that happened to me in my youth and has helped me move beyond flinching when I look at my own scars. The two together are why I personally back gamergate, but the fears of being labelled the kind of person that did those things to me have prevented me from being very outspoken about it. Now that fear has be redoubled by this whole debacle.”

The block list endorsed by the IGDA contains a number of eyebrow-raising inclusions. Alex Wilhelm, a reporter at TechCrunch, the UK Twitter account for publisher Penguin,Guardian journalists, actor Taye Diggs, feminist critics and your present correspondent are all present on the list.

But perhaps the most absurd Twitter account on the list is the official account of KFC. That’s right: Kentucky Fried Chicken was, at least for a while, according to a prominent international video games industry body and thanks to the hysteria of so-called social justice warriors such as Randi Harper, one of the worst harassers of women on the internet.

In one final, finger-lickin’ irony, the IGDA’s executive director, Kate Edwards, was reportedly unable to see messages of thanks posted to her on Saturday night when she admitted the block had been a bad idea and removed it from the IGDA’s website, because she had herself already used the now widely discredited, and ideologically repugnant, bot.
