Fragile Feminism

14 Nov

From the prog rant:

They see a poster of greased up women in a colleague’s office and they know they aren’t respected. They hear comments about “bitches” while out at a bar with fellow science students, and they decide to change majors.

I know we shouldn’t make the mistake of thinking anecdotes are ultimate proof of anything, but I’ve never seen, in the sciences in either academia or in the workplace, pictures of ‘greased up women’. Nor can I recall any bar convos with fellow students or colleagues about ‘bitches’. (Not that a term used to describe specific individuals is an attack on all women the way progs hold it to be, but even so…)

But if all it takes is a bowling shirt, a pin-up, or overhearing a word one finds unpleasant, to prevent one from entering a particular field, or changing majors, then one is probably not only not cut out for that field, but for life itself here on planet Earth where the rest of us live. Suck it up, already! Or go live in a plastic bubble.


Senior Editor and cofounder of The Verge Chris Plante explains the extreme fragility of feminist progress.  One man wearing the wrong shirt can bring the whole system down:

This is the sort of casual misogyny that stops women from entering certain scientific fields. They see a guy like that on TV and they don’t feel welcome.

Hat Tip Vox Day.

    I have read the original in Verge. The way I see it is that now prissy American progs are telling people in Europe what they (we) are allowed to wear in our own freaking countries. To say that I’m mad is an understatement.

    The imperialist impulse, to tell others how they should live, transcends left and right in American politics, alas…

    It is annoying, and infuriating.

    Say, aren’t the sort of comic book heroines depicted ’empowered women’, a la Wonder Woman, according to feminist dogma?

    Then it should be an honour for space agency men to wear such a shirt! 🙂

    I was reading in the Russian news lately how, following the coup in Ukraine, a bunch of LGBT activists flocked into Kiev to hold rallies and denounce the Russian government for its policies. FEMEN was there too. Apparently the Ukrainian people launched some counter-protests until they were shut down by Poroshenko’s goons.

    This is going to end up backfiring on the progs because more and more sentiment in Europe is turning against Anglo-American cultural imperialism. The governments want their handouts, but they soon find there are strings attached and not everyone is happy with it.

    Eric, I know:) Also I read somewhere that when FEMEN tried their antics in France and attacked a bunch of Catholic men, the guys started fighting back and broke the nose of one of the gals. After this, I haven’t heard much about them at all. Europeans, especially of the Southern variety simply don’t share the Anglo-attitude towards women.

    The women in those countries don’t like it either:

    Bitch had it coming.

    Entitlement mentality smack-talking ghetto trash bitch.

    Needs to be smacked around a bit more, maybe then she’ll learn not to run her mouth off.

    Good for nothing, piece of shit excuse for a wench.

    They’re all ex-whores / porn-stars / strippers, anyway.

    Whores are more honest than sluts. At least you know what you are paying for.

    Will & Infowarrior:
    Whenever somebody asks me: “What’s with all the foreign girls? Why don’t you just find a nice American girl and settle down?” I think of BITCHES like the one in the video—hardly an uncommon specimen of American womanhood—and start thinking about the cute waitress in the Chinese restaurant I saw yesterday…

    A friend of mine (who’s since moved) married a girl from Italy. Women in Western Europe are not nearly as feminist as commonly believed over here. Mostly their governments give lip service to the femihags and pass femihag laws to keep US handouts flowing in. If Russia succeeds in breaking up the NATO alliance (which they very well might) feminism is going to fall like dominoes in Western Europe.

    I hear ya, Eric.

    I’d much rather have a sweet foreign gal than a bitchy North American one…

    Note: this applies in North America, not Europe (except to Femen types).

    To be more specific and accurate, it applies in ENGLISH-SPEAKING North America. Mexico is geographically North America, but Mexican women collectively in no way share the feminastiness of the estrogen vessels north of the Rio Grande.

    You got that right. The difference between women in Mexico and Central America and those in the US/Canada is like night and day!

    Eric, yes, that’s what I keep saying. European governments just go along with whatever is the last American progressive fashion, but the population itself is mostly unwilling, unlike in (some) Anglo-countries, where men seem to worship women.

    Latin women are by no means immune

    Man provokes slutwalk by deliberately exposing himself.

    And should remember this incident:

    @ feeriker: Yes, I was using ‘North America’ as shorthand for Canada and the U.S.; even Mexicans refer to us, not themselves, as ‘Norteamericanos’, so I honour that by not thinking of them as North Americans, since they clearly don’t see themselves as such. 🙂

    Of course Latin American women aren’t perfect specimens of female humanity, nor are they without their own examples of shebominations. No demographic clusters of women anywhere in the world are immune to such. However, as one who has spent considerable time in that part of the world, for long periods of time, I will state without reservation that, collectively, Latinas even at their worst make even the most desirable of Norteamerikanas, collectively, seem unappealing by comparison.

  29. Eric

    November 17, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    What those videos don’t show are the millions of Latinas sitting in beauty parlors and cafes laughing themselves sick at femihag stupidity. I’ve seen that first-hand too down there.
