On Feminism, Part VII

Not only do radical feminists hold a position on abortion that fails to reflect the attitudes of most ordinary women, but they also make statements about men that fly in the face of the ordinary woman’s experience. This is what radical feminists think when they look at your loving husband, your devoted boyfriend, your brother and best friend, or your wonderful, funny son:

  • “To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.” — Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto
  • “Under patriarchy, every woman’s son is her potential betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman.” — Andrea Dworkin
  • “The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race.” — Sally Miller Gearhart, in The Future – If There Is One – Is Female.
  • “And if the professional rapist is to be separated from the average dominant heterosexual (male), it may be mainly a quantitative difference.” — Susan Griffin, Rape: The All-American Crime.
  • “All men are rapists and that’s all they are” — Marilyn French, Authoress; (later, advisoress to Al Gore’s Presidential Campaign.)
  • “All men are good for is f*cking, and running over with a truck.” — statement made by a University of Maine feminist administrator.
  • Okay — I’m sure you’re all feeling overwhelmed, so I shall stop at this point. Women have experienced injustices in the past – and continue to experience injustices in certain corners of the world today – but this level of rage and hatred, I feel, can only be explained by trauma. Clearly, these feminist commentators have been wounded by men at some point in their lives and have not received the appropriate medical and psychological treatment. In a way, I feel sorry for them. But at the same time, I feel it’s my personal duty to fight against their attempts to impose their peculiar psychopathology on the rest of the populace through public policy.

    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with men in the aggregate. For every man who is a genuine rapist, there are hundreds – nay, thousands – of men who would never dream of forcing themselves on women. For every man who beats his partner, there are thousands of men who would never lay so much as a finger on a woman. Yes, men are a little more physically aggressive, but the vast, vast majority of men have sublimated their urges, expressing them in perfectly harmless competitive sports — or in their dangerous yet socially necessary jobs. The world’s colossal skyscrapers and massive bridges were built by men, some of whom did not survive to see such structures finished. Are the lights on in your home? Thank the men who are willing to risk their lives to procure the fossil fuels that still power the majority of our electrical plants. Do you like Alaskan crab? Thank the men who are willing to sail on dangerous seas to get it.

    If you believe a world dominated by women would be more peaceful, then you obviously don’t remember high school. “Oh my god, America! Russia totally slept with your boyfriend!” “That does it – we’re bombing Moscow.” We women may not do so well with hand-to-hand combat, but political intrigue and aggression from afar is certainly within our capabilities. And if you believe a world dominated by women would be more ecologically friendly, think again. Most of us women enjoy our modern creature comforts and will resist attempts to turn back the clock as furiously as would any man.

    The discussion above reveals a very strange contradiction in radical feminist thought: they insist that gender differences are wholly determined by culture, yet they simultaneously argue that women are naturally superior. Such seemingly irrational thinking makes perfect sense, however, as long as you keep in mind that radical feminism’s true goal is the destruction of Western civilization. Their arguments don’t need to be internally consistent as long as their result is the same.


    One thought on “On Feminism, Part VII

    1. “Oh my god, America! Russia totally slept with your boyfriend!” “That does it – we're bombing Moscow.”


      Oh the humanity. 🙂

      This axiom does not apply to every girl or every guy, but this is still largely true statistically.

      Men settle differences of opinion by punching each other in the back alley and then the fight is over. Women settle differences by seeking to completely and utterly DESTROY the offending party and they hold grudges until such time as the offending party is either dead or seriously weakened socially, physically, or emotionally to the point of no longer being a threat.

      If women ran the world, wars would take longer to start, take longer to end, be vastly…vastly more brutal (sorry, Steph…but you know it's true) in terms of psychological gamesmanship and post-conflict consequences, and probably result in just as much total cost and loss of life.

      Whether women of today want to admit it or not, they are unable to separate the emotional and logical parts of their brain as efficiently as men do…meaning that, yes, they are less likely to become serial murderers (because to do that requires cold, calculating compartmentalization of your killings from your normal state of mind), but also that women are more prone to crimes of passion, and to fighting dirty. In the political arena, if you think the mudslinging is bad NOW…if it were all women running for office, I'm quite convinced we would see some of the worst garbage ads ever to be conceived. In terms of military conflict, this tendency toward irrational reactions to opposition (and to fighting dirty) would probably lead to a lot of assassinations and a lot of economic policy decisions that are ultimately very hurtful to the nations that foist them “just to prove a point.”

      Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…that doesn't come from nowhere…it's not some phrase invented by evil men as a way of marginalizing women…it was probably first uttered by a woman.
