Feminist's have become incredibly out of the loopWatch this thread
An article by Jessica Valenti was titled "Feminism makes women 'victims'? I think you've mistaken us for the sexists".
Oh have they? That's really fascinating information that you've enlightened me with. Never realized that sexists are, urm, sexist.
In the eyes of the average feminist, if you observe what appear to be ironic, paradoxical, or contradictory elements to feminism, then you are backwards, living under a rock, and completely stupid.
Ironically, to anyone who isn't completely out of touch with modern society, they can see that the reverse is true.
I often feel that people are at different "levels" when it comes to their understanding of the status quo. Feminists do not do very well.
For example level one would be understanding that sexism exists and it's bad.
Level two would be the understanding that pretty much everyone understands that sexism exists and it's bad.
Level three would be understanding that everyone understands that everyone understands that sexism exists and it's bad.
Level three would be the understanding that feminism supposedly tackles sexism.
Level four would be the understanding that most people understand that feminism supposedly tackles sexism.
Level five would be the understanding that most people understand that everyone understands that feminism supposedly tackles sexism.
Level six would be the understanding that some people feel that feminism is flawed and contradicts itself often and in fact sometimes helps fuel sexism.
Level seven would be the understanding that some people understand that some people feel that sexism contradicts itself often and in fact sometimes helps fuel sexism.
Most feminists do not even make it to level two. They genuinely feel like feminism is this new thing that not many people understand and know much about. They think that if everyone was educated about feminism, they'd either agree with them or be misogynists, because there's no such thing as subjectivity. They actually believe that most people don't understand that sexism exists.
They believe than when someone highlights a contradiction that seems to exist in feminism, then they mustn't understand feminism and must actually think that feminism is supposed to be sexist. They can't fathom the idea that people actually understand perfectly what feminism is about, but feel that it is flawed and could be accused of some of the very things it seems to be against.
It's like feminists have spent so much time in their little echo chamber that they've completely lost touch of where everyone else is at. They're like a teenager who thinks the reason that no one understands their love for My Chemical Romance is because they don't understand the lyrics, but it's not that. Everyone does understand the lyrics, they just think they're rubbish.
I found it absolutely disgusting how Charlotte Proudman stood beside rape victims, girls of forced marriage, female victims of war and many others to complain about discrimination. Her situation is not even comparable.
Oh I totally agree! It's despicable, a fellow Barrister 'admired' her picture, how very traumatic! It's disgusting, she will never be able to understand what those girls went through! We should be trying to combat serious issues, not introducing flipping all women short lists and doing slut walks. Honestly makes me feel ashamed for how much guys get the blame these days and how everything they say is somehow sexist. Last time I checked Britain wasn't supposed to be a totalitarian state!
I would rather dedicate my time to helping the young girls being barbarically abused by ISIS and other terror groups over in Syria and Iraq, or the girls abducted in Africa than a linkedIn comment or air conditioning in the work place.
