Feminist “Strawmen?” I’m TRIGGERED!

It’s “Straw PERSONS,” you CIS-normal SCUM!

In Nip and Tuck, I have introduced a modern feminist character— Estelle the Shrew. Once again, I am being accused by the usual crowd of flapping mouths of using “strawmen.”

Let’s examine that.

First off, “strawmen” is not short hand for “unflattering portrayal.” It has a specific meaning: “An INACCURATE portrayal of the opposition or its stances, set up for the speaker to easily knock down.”

Of course. Strawman.

Because NOBODY
raging feminist 1

Could be like ESTELLE in real life.

yep, there she is

Oh dear. Well, These are just the EXTREMISTS, it’s not as if there are entire ARMIES of them proudly proclaiming themselves sluts

Screaming for the right to murder their own children

displaying their amoral sociopolitical idiocy for all to see
queers in palestine?
feminist idiot

And attacking those who disagree with them–

…. oh my.

Well, that’s just the masses of the great unwashed. I’m SURE the leaders and the great thinkers of the movement are much more civilized.
For example, here are some quotes from famous feminists.

“I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honourable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.” – Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor

“To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.” -– Valerie Solanas

“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.” — Andrea Dworkin

“Rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear” — Susan Brownmiller

“The more famous and powerful I get the more power I have to hurt men.” — Sharon Stone

“In a patriarchal society, all heterosexual intercourse is rape because women, as a group, are not strong enough to give meaningful consent.” — Catherine MacKinnon

“The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race.” — Sally Miller Gearhart

“Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience.” – Catherine Comins

“All men are rapists and that’s all they are” — Marilyn French

“Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release.” — Germaine Greer.

“As long as some men use physical force to subjugate females, all men need not. The knowledge that some men do suffices to threaten all women. He can beat or kill the woman he claims to love; he can rape women…he can sexually molest his daughters… THE VAST MAJORITY OF MEN IN THE WORLD DO ONE OR MORE OF THE ABOVE.”
Marilyn French (her emphasis)

‘My feelings about men are the result of my experience. I have little sympathy for them. Like a Jew just released from Dachau, I watch the handsome young Nazi soldier fall writhing to the ground with a bullet in his stomach and I look briefly and walk on. I don’t even need to shrug. I simply don’t care. What he was, as a person, I mean, what his shames and yearnings were, simply don’t matter.”
Marilyn French; The Woman’s Room.

“All patriarchists exalt the home and family as sacred, demanding it remain inviolate from prying eyes. Men want privacy for their violations of women… All women learn in childhood that women as a sex are men’s prey.”
Marilyn French

“All men are rapists and that’s all they are.”
Marilyn French, Author; (later, advisor to Al Gore’s Presidential Campaign.)

“We live, I am trying to say, in an epidemic of male violence against women.”
Katha Pollitt.

“All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman.”
Catherine MacKinnon

“I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He’s just incapable of it.”
Former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.

“The traditional flowers of courtship are the traditional flowers of the grave, delivered to the victim before the kill. The cadaver is dressed up and made up and laid down and ritually violated and consecrated to an eternity of being used.”
Andrea Dworkin

“The media treat male assaults on women like rape, beating, and murder of wives and female lovers, or male incest with children, as individual aberrations…obscuring the fact that all male violence toward women is part of a concerted campaign.”
Marilyn French

“Probably the only place where a man can feel really secure is in a maximum security prison, except for the imminent threat of release.”
Germaine Greer.

“Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience.”
Catherine Comin, Vassar College. Assistant Dean of Students.

“Men renounce whatever they have in common with women so as to experience no commonality with women; and what is left…is one piece of flesh a few inches long, the penis. The penis is the man; the man is human; the penis signifies humanity.”
Andrea Dworkin

“You grow up with your father holding you down and covering your mouth so another man can make a horrible searing pain between your legs.”
Catherine MacKinnon (Prominent legal feminist scholar; University of Michigan, & Yale.)

“Man-hating is everywhere, but everywhere it is twisted and transformed, disguised, tranquilized, and qualified. It coexists, never peacefully, with the love, desire, respect, and need women also feel for men. Always man-hating is shadowed by its milder, more diplomatic and doubtful twin, ambivalence.”
Judith Levine

“Men’s sexuality is mean and violent, and men so powerful that they can ‘reach WITHIN women to fuck/construct us from the inside out.’ Satan-like, men possess women, making their wicked fantasies and desires women’s own. A woman who has sex with a man, therefore, does so against her will, ‘even if she does not feel forced.’
Judith Levine, (explicating comment profiling prevailing misandry.)

‘To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he’s a machine, a walking dildo.”
Scum Manifesto. (Valerie Solanas)

((Delaney Nickerson, of the American Coalition for ABUSE AWARENESS, refers to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation as “The Fucking Molesters Society”. (Miami Herald, April 3, 1995) The ACAA is a lobbying group, which includes Ellen Bass (co-author of THE COURAGE TO HEAL), and Rene Frederickson, leading feminist psychotherapist and strong proponent of repressed memory theory.))

((At the STONE ANGELS satanic ritual abuse conference in Thunder Bay in February, 1995, the following was contained in the handouts at a conference supported financially by the Ontario Government: FMS stands for: FULL OF MOSTLY SHIT; FOR MORE SADISM; FELONS, MURDERERS, SCUMBALLS; FREQUENT MOLESTERS SOCIETY.))

“The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness…can be trained to do most things.”
Jilly Cooper, SCUM (Society For Cutting Up Men.)

“Women have their faults / men have only two: / everything they say / everything they do.”
Popular Feminist Graffiti

“I feel what they feel: man-hating, that volatile admixture of pity, contempt, disgust, envy, alienation, fear, and rage at men. It is hatred not only for the anonymous man who makes sucking noises on the street, not only for the rapist or the judge who acquits him, but for what the Greeks called philo-aphilos, ‘hate in love,’ for the men women share their lives with–husbands, lovers, friends, fathers, brothers, sons, coworkers.”
Judith Levine, My Enemy, My love

“There are no boundaries between affectionate sex and slavery in (the male) world. Distinctions between pleasure and danger are academic; the dirty-laundrylist of ‘sex acts’…includes rape, foot binding, fellatio, intercourse, auto eroticism, incest, anal intercourse, use and production of pornography, cunnilingus, sexual harassment, and murder.”
J. Levine; summarizing comment on the WAS document, (A southern Women’s Writing Collective: Women Against Sex.)

“All men are good for is fucking, and running over with a truck”.
Statement made by A University of Maine Feminist Administrator, quoted by Richard Dinsmore, who brought a successful civil suit against the University in the amount of $600,000. Richard had protested the quote; was dismissed thereafter on the grounds of harassment; and responded by bringing suit against the University. 1995 settlement.

“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.”
Andrea Dworkin; from her book Ice and Fire .

“Men are rapists, batterers, plunderers, killers; these same men are religious prophets, poets, heroes, figures of romance, adventure, accomplishment, figures ennobled by tragedy and defeat. Men have claimed the earth, called it “Her”. Men ruin Her. Men have airplanes, guns, bombs, poisonous gases, weapons so perverse and deadly that they defy any authentically human imagination.
Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women

“On the Left, on the Right, in the Middle; Authors, statesmen, thieves; so-called humanists and self-declared fascists; the adventurous and the contemplative, in every realm of male expression and action, violence is experienced and articulated as love and freedom.”
Andrea Dworkin, Pornography: Men Possessing Women.

“I was, in reality, bred by my parents as my father’s concubine… What we take for granted as the stability of family life may well depend on the sexual slavery of our children. What’s more, this is a cynical arrangement our institutions have colluded to conceal.”.
Journalist Sylvia Fraser

“We are taught, encouraged, moulded by and lulled into accepting a range of false notions about the family. As a source of some of our most profound experiences, it continues to be such an integral part of our emotional lives that it appears beyond criticism. Yet hiding from the truth of family life leaves women and children vulnerable.”
Canadian Panel on Violence Against Women.

Catharine MacKinnon ( ) maintains that “the private is a sphere of battery, marital rape and women’s exploited labor.” In this way, privacy and family are reduced to nothing more than aspects of the master plan, which is male domination. Democratic freedoms and the need to keep the state’s nose out of our personal affairs are rendered meaningless. The real reason our society cherishes privacy is because men have invented it as an excuse to conceal their criminality. If people still insist that the traditional family is about love and mutual aid–ideals which, admittedly, are sometimes betrayed–they’re “hiding from the truth.” The family isn’t a place where battery and marital rape sometimes happen but where little else apparently does. Sick men don’t simply molest their daughters, they operate in league with their wives to “breed” them for that purpose.
Donna Laframboise; The Princess at the Window; (in a critical explication of the Catharine MacKinnon, Gloria Steinhem et al tenets of misandric belief.)

“I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.”
Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.

“I claim that rape exists any time sexual intercourse occurs when it has not been initiated by the woman, out of her own genuine affection and desire.”
Robin Morgan

“And let’s put one lie to rest for all time: the lie that men are oppressed, too, by sexism–the lie that there can be such a thing as ‘men’s liberation groups.’ Oppression is something that one group of people commits against another group, specifically because of a ‘threatening’ characteristic shared by the latter group–skin, color, sex or age, etc. The oppressors are indeed FUCKED UP by being masters, but those masters are not OPPRESSED. Any master has the alternative of divesting himself of sexism or racism–the oppressed have no alternative–for they have no power but to fight. In the long run, Women’s Liberation will of course free men–but in the short run it’s going to cost men a lot of privilege, which no one gives up willingly or easily. Sexism is NOT the fault of women–kill your fathers, not your mothers”.
Robin Morgan.

“Heterosexual intercourse is the pure, formalized expression of contempt for women’s bodies.”
Andrea Dworkin

“In a patriarchal society, all heterosexual intercourse is rape because women, as a group, are not strong enough to give meaningful consent.”
Catharine MacKinnon, quoted in Professing Feminism: Cautionary Tales from the Strange World of Women’s Studies.

“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.

“The institution of sexual intercourse is anti-feminist”.
Ti-Grace Atkinson, Amazon Odyssey (p. 86).

“(Rape) is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear”.
Susan Brownmiller, Against Our Will p.6.

“When a woman reaches orgasm with a man she is only collaborating with the patriarchal system, eroticizing her own oppression…”
Sheila Jeffrys.

From ‘A feminist Dictionary; ed. Kramarae and Triechler, Pandora Press, 1985:

MALE:…represents a variant of or deviation from the category of female. The first males were mutants…the male sex represents a degeneration and deformity of the female.

MAN:…an obsolete life form… an ordinary creature who needs to be watched…a contradictory baby-man…

Letter to editor: “Women’s Turn to Dominate”. “……Clearly you are not yet a free-thinking feminist but rather one of those women who bounce off the male-dominated, male-controlled social structures. Who cares how men feel or what they do or whether they suffer? They have had over 2000 years to dominate and made a complete hash of it. Now it is our turn. My only comment to men is: if you don’t like it, bad luck–and if you get in my way I’ll run you down.”
Signed: Liberated Women, Boronia Herald-Sun, Melbourne, Australia. 9 Feb., 1996.

“If the classroom situation is very heteropatriarchal–a large beginning class of 50 to 60 students, say, with few feminist students–I am likely to define my task as largely one of recruitment…of persuading students that women are oppressed,” said Professor Joyce Trebilcot of Washington University, as quoted in Who Stole Feminism: How Women Have Betrayed Women.

“Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation, and destroy the male sex.”
Valerie Solana, SCUM Manifesto (Society for Cutting Up Men.)

“Men, as a group, tend to be abusive, either verbally, sexually or emotionally. There are always the exceptions, but they are few and far between (I am married to one of them). There are different levels of violence and abuse and individual men buy into this system by varying degrees. But the male power structure always remains intact.”
Message on FEMISA, responding to a request for arguments that men are unnecessary for a child to grow into mature adulthood.


Another posting on FEMISA: “Considering the nature and pervasiveness of men’s violence, I would say that without question, children are better off being raised without the presence of men. Assaults on women and children are mostly perpetrated by men whom they are supposed to love and trust: fathers, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, step-fathers.”
Both quotes taken from Daphne Patai’s excellent critical work,

“At Brandies I discovered Feminism. And I instantly became a convert… writing brilliant papers in my Myths of Patriarchy class, in which I likened my fate as a woman to other victims throughout the ages.”
Heather Hart 7

“Ninety-five percent of women’s experiences are about being a victim. Or about being an underdog, or having to survive… women didn’t go to Vietnam and blow things up. They are not Rambo.”
Jodie Foster in The New York Times Magazine.

My, My, My.

But… you know what, you’re right, Anonymous Commenter #14490 With A Pseudo-Clever Nom De Plume. Strawmen all the way, here.

Feminism is nothing more than a two-step agenda for whiny females: find something to complain about, then blame it on men. No matter how many times they rewrite the definition of it in Wikipedia, It never was, and never could be, about equality.

Feminist “Strawmen?” I’m TRIGGERED! — 19 Comments

  1. “strawmen” is not short hand for “unflattering portrayal.”

    If you ask me that’s the beginning, middle, and end of the problem you’re having with people bandying about that word right there, and conceivably you could have stopped the post there and caught at least the majority of those saying that–not that your mountain of examples isn’t helpful to the point, it is. Too many people just take “strawman” to think “easy target related to an issue” which is most often tantamount with an unflattering portrayal. Those with that attitude neglect that there are some easy targets that still need to actually be targeted, and frankly anyone behaving as insane as the people in those photographs falls firmly under that category imo.

  2. You’ve got some duplicate comments in there, as well as some slightly inconsistent bios you should probably clean up. No reason to give anyone a bad excuse to dismiss this.

    • … they’d find a reason, even if the information had been flawlessly compiled. “Oh, on July 17, 2007 you used a comma improperly! DISMISS!”

      At some point you just stop caring to throw your pearls before swine.

    • oh yes, a couple of repeats, I know. I just cut and pasted from the first two lists I found… of several dozen.

      Even now the reality-impaired are aligning their mighty intellects to retort “they’re not all like that!” So… just the spokespersons,the leaders, the organized groups, the NON organized groups, the celebrities, the politicians, the thousands of protesters out therein the street, and tumblr, then?

      But never mind the numbers: when one leads, who follows? We have the likes of Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, known gender issue agitators and frauds and poster children for the feminist movement, getting facetime at the United Nations. Go ahead, feminists, tell me again how hags like this don’t represent your movement even as they rake in your money, lavish in your praise, and speak on your behalf before the nations of the world.

      • I think the difference is, these people *shouldn’t* represent the movement. To put it in perspective, in the TotQ series, who represents the majority of religion in the world at large? By all accounts, the Universal Church. However, wouldn’t the Church of the Sojourner be better suited as an accurate representation? And, worse off, can they even do anything to change things, with the Universal in control of most regions of the world?

        On a different note, I’m seeing replies elsewhere on here that are quoting statements that disagree with you, only the source comments for those quotes aren’t anywhere to be seen. Is this simply an error with the website system, or are we covering up voices we don’t want to hear?

        • Your comparison is disingenuous. When the Universalists behave abominably, you do not see Sojourners out in the street whining that “not ALL Universalists are like that!” — because the Sojourners emphatically disassociate themselves from the Universalists. They do not carry the Universalist standard, they do not wear their robes, they do not march under their banner.

          Feminism— as opposed to suffrage— has not been a movement about equality in decades, if it ever was. The lie is spelled out in its very name. FEMINISM, an “ism” about FEMALE issues, FEMALE complaints, FEMALE agendas— right or wrong. It is, DE FACTO, the assumption that men are oppressors and women are victims, that whatever problems a woman might have in life spring from MEN. Yes, even the “nice” feminists. If they were about equality they would be calling themselves egalitarians, and they wouldn’t be forever apologizing for a movement that behaves like rabid animals.

          • Reposting as best possible due to vanish, and adding an extra quote with comment:

            It’s worth noting that while there are extremist voices within feminism (as within any movement – after all, even the Civil Rights movement had Malcolm X in addition to MLK), there are also well-known modern feminists who are more inclusive.

            “I’ve seen young men suffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less “macho”—in fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49 years of age; eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality either.
            We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.
            If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled.
            Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong… It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.”
            Emma Watson, speech to the UN, 9/20/14

            “I do not even hate the Talib who shot me. Even if there is a gun in my hand and he stands in front of me. I would not shoot him. This is the compassion that I have learnt from Muhammad-the prophet of mercy, Jesus christ and Lord Buddha. This is the legacy of change that I have inherited from Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali Jinnah. This is the philosophy of non-violence that I have learnt from Gandhi Jee, Bacha Khan and Mother Teresa. And this is the forgiveness that I have learnt from my mother and father. This is what my soul is telling me, be peaceful and love everyone.”
            Malala Yousafzai, speech to the UN, 7/12/13

            As to why they choose to identify as “feminists” rather than “egalitarians,” that’s likely because it’s been the name of the movement for so long – they recognize that a group that changes terms every time it needs to dissociate from some extremist voices is never going to be cohesive, since there will always be extremists no matter what the camp. Hence, Malala’s comment from her interview with Watson:

            “Interestingly, this word feminism, it has been a very tricky word, and when I heard it the first time I heard some negative responses. I hesitated in saying, ‘Am I a feminist or not,’ and then after hearing your speech when you said, ‘If not now, when? If not me, who?’ I decided that … there’s nothing wrong with calling yourself a feminist.”

          • Halfwit Genius summed it up quite nicely. The simple truth of the matter is that feminism–proper feminism–is in actuality egalitarian. The name simply came about in a time when equality meant more rights for women, and it hasn’t changed since. Arguing that it’s “in the name” is about as silly as saying that you, Ralph, are the counsel of wolves, from the Norse origin of Raðulfr. It may be in the name, but there’s a reason the term “in name only” exists.

  3. ” I couldn’t see ANY feminist, even the most extreme, snarling “Get away, MALE” when approached by someone being friendly in a non-threatening environment.”

    “In reality, if someone reacted like that, I would assume that this person had suffered some very extreme trauma and leave them alone.”

    I’m sure RH is very sorry for not filtering every part of every joke he makes for accuracy and political correctness even though it’s just a freaking webcomic, and not even one of his more major ones at that. OH WAIT, I’m certain that he’s not sorry at all and that you’re taking every little thing in his comic way too freaking seriously. Just because someone is giving an opinion on a hot button issue does not give everyone who wants to see that opinion cast down the right to assume that either the presentation of said opinion will be defended in ironclad logical fashion or they’re wrong and an idiot.

    And again: Strawman /= shorthand easy, probably exaggerated target related to an issue. Exaggerating like RH in a fictitious medium to make a point isn’t strawmanning, it’s called SATIRE–a perfectly valid if usually crude (as admittedly it is in this case) method of stating one’s opinion.

    • There’s a difference between a joke and mockery. One is funny. The other is an attempt to belittle. From the examples trotted out in this post, it looks a lot like Estelle is meant to be a representative not just of the *worst* of radical feminists, but of the feminist movement in general.

      • Oddly enough, I always figured Hortense to be a good depiction of what RH thinks of the “rank and file” feminists. Go dig through the archives to see his treatment of a “feminist character” rather than some magenta-haired cutout who doesn’t even have character development yet, who’s been seen in like two strips.

        • tomyironmane – I actually found the portrayal of Hortense a little hurtful too, though I don’t think I mentioned anything about it at the time due to three factors: A) There are a substantial number of feminists – of any movement – out there like Hortense, using the name and the cultural identifiers of the movement without really understanding what their goal is, B) there are several facets to Hortense, in that you see her not only as feminist and argumentative, but also as a friend, and at times a pretty loyal one, to Thelma, and C) my objections to the character had more to do with me having some diametrically opposite experiences in life.

          The keystone, as I understood it, of Hortense’s part of the story was that she was feminist primarily to lash out against feeling left out of “normal” female culture and because she was just following what media was telling her to think. I grew up in a very conservative Southern Baptist household, up to and including my parents being very active in a local right-to-life organization. For the first, substantial portion of my life, I toed the line. I was feminine, quiet when others were speaking, let myself be drowned out of a conversation when a man or boy spoke – even when I was right (and let me tell you, my husband thanks me for growing out of that particular habit), and viewed my future as being a helpmeet to someone else’s ambitions. That was what I was told God’s plan for a woman was.
          It wasn’t until college – and a very different church – that I started to question that. You would not believe the relief I felt getting the concept through my head that being outspoken, confident, and (worse) competent did not make me unfeminine.

      • ” From the examples trotted out in this post, it looks a lot like Estelle is meant to be a representative not just of the *worst* of radical feminists, but of the feminist movement in general.”
        Here’s the thing: how radical are the extremists when the extremists are the ones leading the movement in terms of intellectual and philosophical advancement?

        We get it: the bumper sticker meme about equality has been a staple since forever, but ultimately the very semantics of the movement belie their ultimate radicalism for the concepts of privilege and rape culture ultimately reveal the fundamentally extreme transformative nature of the movement.

  4. They went hunting for monsters. Is it that surprising that they became monsters themselves?

    Searching for faults in others, will surely make obvious, your own faults, to every one.

    There is no right way to respond to people who are self righteous.
    Yet, in not responding they will see you as weak.

  5. This kind of thing is really a no win situation. Especially if you happen to be a male human being. It doesn’t matter if you’re right. When a rabid female is screaming that you are a depraved individual, the male is automatically seen as the villain.

    This is no longer about women’s rights. This has become “The women are always in the right”, and it is just as oppressive, and Fascist as they say “We Males” are. The right of a man to defend himself is effectively nonexistent when it comes to women.

    And that is extreme feminist movement in a nut’s shell.

  6. I don’t think the stated meaning of a strawman is correct…and no the “unflattering portrayal” is less correct, it is simply an argument made to be lost, the second part of the stated definition. It does not have to be inaccurate, but it being a fallacy it certainly can be, there are no other stipulations, just that it’s made to be the losing side. Rather then being inaccurate it could merely be that the person they got to take the side (or character representing the side) could be abhorrent, purposefully unconvincing, or just about anything.

  7. Side note: I do get that you’re making fun of all the people who misuse the term on media like Tumblr, but please don’t contribute to the problem by misusing and/or mocking trigger warnings/notifications. People who get panic attacks need trigger warnings to remain legitimate where possible.

  8. Do you believe there are, in fact, some Feminists who have valid points? Who aren’t, essentially, walking strawmen? I think that would help with the point.

    I’ve known feminists, and even “Social Justice Warriors” who are actually extremely nice people.

    • If they have valid points, that is to say if they are rational entities, then they would not be feminists.

      Feminism is the ongoing premise that if you are a woman, your life is “unfair” and that all your problems are the fault of some man, somewhere— never you.
      That all the problems that women suffer and by extension all the problems in the world, are solely the fault of men
      That women in Western Civ in particular are an oppressed class… in a society that literally panders to their every whim.
      That in order to be “fair,” men are obligated to grant WOMEN access to institutions MEN built to which women have contributed nothing, and which were never created for them in the first place , lower the bar so that they can compete there, ignore it when they fail anyway and, keep repeating that a women can do everything a man does, even when they can’t.

      Remember gamergate? One of the fallout issues of that was that a group of programmers– the Fine Young Capitalists— answered the accusation that women were “shut out” of the “sexist” gaming industry: they ran a contest offering any woman that entered a simple deal: the winner would get to pitch a game. The FYC would do the programming, the promoting, the artwork, everything– all according to her design. And she would get credit as the game designer as well as a percentage of the profits from all game sales.

      The SJW’s, led by Sarkeesian, attacked it as “sexist” and “exploiting women.” Even at one point hacking their fundraiser page, forcing the FYC to sit down with gofundme.com and rebuild the fundraising campaign from scratch.

      Feminism is shit.
