Oh I feel sorry for Dzokhar Tsarnaev, all right. I’m sorry he’s not dead.

3 May

Hanna Roisin, writing over at slate.com has an interesting piece up in which she waxes poetic about the “maternal sympathy” Dzokhar Tsarnaev is eliciting amongst her friends and acquaintances. Hanna doesn’t agree with the sentiments, she is just noting them.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2013/04/29/maternal_sympathy_for_dzhokhar_tsarnaev_what_s_it_about.html

Her condemnation falls a little short, in my estimation, but what really sent my heart rate soaring was her link to a pastebin site in which young women are writing fan fiction AKA erotica about this little piece of worthless human shit.

[Dzhokhar] sounded much more terrified than you could have possibly been. “Are you okay?” You begged him to tell you he was fine, nobody really knew. “I’m hit, in the leg, but I- wait what? You’re asking if I’m okay?” He was surprised, but calmer now. “I know you didn’t do it, and even if you did, I know you aren’t harmful.” He sighed with your words, he felt safe for the first time since he saw his face on the television.

I…

Can’t…

Even….

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

We all know I do not approve of physical violence against children, but holy mother of god would I like the line these girls up and slap the shit out of them.  There’s a fancy word for this kind behavior: Hybristophilia.  It’s technically classified as a mental illness that falls under the category of paraphilias, but to me, that is one giant cop out.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybristophilia

This isn’t mental illness.  It’s straight up evil.  It’s a choice made by people who are so heartless and cruel they scarcely qualify as human.  Schizophrenia, which NO ONE volunteers for, is a mental illness. Creaming your panties over someone who BLEW THE LEGS OFF CHILDREN is pure, unadulterated evil.

And once again, because the perpetrators of this evil are women, and mostly young women, we refuse as a culture to confront it.

Let’s start with the obvious:  why do young women like Dzokhar?  Well, he’s cute!  Look at him!  What a pretty boy.

dzokhar

Of course he’s not so pretty here, smirking and dropping his homemade bomb at the feet of the children he mains and kills.

Funny, but I can’t find a whole lot of fan fiction eroticizing encounters with this man:

adam

But then he’s kind of an ugly fucker, isn’t he?

The mainstream media like to keep up a constant conversation about how women are objectified and treated as mere vessels for the male gaze and how much this harms young women, but in a culture that has room for young women to write sexual fantasies about a mass murderer for no reason other than the fact that he’s physically appealing, exactly who is objectifying whom?

Let’s talk for a second about how the media has responded to Dzokhar and his equally appealing brother Tamerlan.

tamerlan

What irritates me beyond belief is that the action of these two deranged murderers is linked very specifically to masculinity.  Why are terrorists so often men?, wonders Irin Carmon at Salon.

http://www.salon.com/2013/04/25/why_are_terrorists_so_often_men/

I guess she’s just conveniently ignoring the 35 people killed by a female suicide bomber in Moscow then? And these ladies are just outliers, right?

http://www.newser.com/story/110437/35-killed-in-explosion-at-moscows-top-airport.html

female three

female 2

female four

Suicide bombers are not very common to begin with, but it didn’t take a whole lot of effort for me to locate multiple examples of women as terrorists, and those are just the ones pulling the trigger.

bombshell

http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/caj/documents/vol_14/iss_1/caj_vol14.1_17_e.pdf

It looks like Dzokhar’s mother was pretty gung-ho about jihad and introduced her little darlings to the concept at the dinner table quite regularly.  When you include all the women working behind the scenes to promote and support terrorism and terrorist causes, there is precisely ZERO evidence that men are more involved in craziness than women.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/bombing-suspects-mom-talked-jihad-2011-recordings-article-1.1329247

Another example of formal/informal power structures.  When you account for informal power structures, women tend to have the upper hand.  Is it so hard to believe the same is true when it comes to terrorism?

http://judgybitch.com/2013/04/14/there-never-was-a-patriarchy-and-there-isnt-one-now-in-related-news-mr-jb-cant-do-shit-without-running-it-by-me-first/

So what is behind this effort to link terrorists and the Tsarnaevs in particular to the masculine and not the depraved?

“Large public acts of terrorism are very public displays of masculinity, making a statement in the biggest way possible,” says Abby Ferber, a sociologist at the University of Colorado who has studied white supremacist groups and masculinity. In her work, she said, she often encountered a “vulnerability to their sense of masculinity whether it’s their relationship with their father, their culture. And there are a limited number of ways in the culture to show your masculinity.” In the absence of the traditional forms of masculinity — including financial or social power — “you’re more likely to see extreme means. They’re showing that they’re real men, man enough to do something like this.”

Let’s take a close look at what our little sociologist is claiming.  She offers three definitions of masculinity:

  1. Social power
  2. Financial power
  3. Large public acts of terrorism

Then she claims that there are limited numbers of ways to show masculinity in our culture, and goes ahead and blames men’s relationships with their fathers for the resulting “extreme means”.

There’s kind of a sick admission written into that quote, isn’t there?  Men’s social and financial power has been deliberately and strategically limited and the relationship with their fathers fractured and their only response is to blow up innocent people because masculinity.

The heart wrenching truth is that men facing this new world of limited social and financial power do indeed take extreme measures …. against themselves.  Suicide is now outpacing traffic accidents as the leading cause of death for men in America.

http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2012/09/27/suicides-outpace-car-crashes-as-leading-cause-of-deaths-from-injuries/

Two men set off bombs and hundreds of men picked up the pieces and all of this is invisible to Abby and her ilk? Why is that?

http://judgybitch.com/2013/04/17/a-bomb-goes-off-in-boston-and-shows-america-why-we-need-men/

http://judgybitch.com/2013/04/18/boston-part-two-for-all-the-boys-who-werent-in-blue/

You know, I wouldn’t have such a problem with the media claiming masculinity is the root of all violence and evil in our society if they were at least as willing to point to femininity as being equally destructive.  Those girls writing fan fiction for Dzokhar could be understood as simply responding to a perceived alpha male in a characteristically and predictably feminine way:  by offering to suck his dick.

But oh no.  Those girls are simply misguided.  Poor dears need some assistance and time to work through their hybristophilia. Dkokhar and Tamerlan, on the other hand, stand for everything masculinity wants to do to our culture and society.

http://www.policymic.com/articles/36669/dzhokhar-and-tamerlan-tsarnaev-a-new-type-of-all-american-terrorists

Blow it up. Destroy it.  Smash it.  Pulverize it.  Terrorize us and turn us into whimpering children cowering in the corners.  Obviously, we need to contain this threat.  Destroy the masculine before it destroys us.

These women, and it mostly IS women who write so viciously about men and masculinity, appear not to have noticed the entire trajectory of human history.  It’s like they are trapped in a present, unable to see the past and completely unwilling to contemplate the future.

bubble

When has murdering innocent children ever been a hall-mark of manliness?  When has inducing fear and terror and loathing ever been a sign of masculine strength?  What men are these women talking about? What version of humanity are they subscribing to?

Has the world gone mad on occasion, descended into war and chaos and fire and blood?

bomb nuclear

Yes.  It has.  And what force set the world to right again?  Who is it that picked up arms or took on the leadership of nations or wrote and codified laws and rules and then enforced them to ensure peace and security?  Who did all those things?  Who built the fences that keep chaos at bay? Who patrols the edges of our world and secures the perimeter against encroaching wilderness?  Who is it that serves, protects, dies to guarantee our safety?

soldiers

Do I really need to answer that for you?

Evil exists.  It always has and it always will.  Sometimes it comes in the form of two pretty white boys with exotic names and poison in their blood.

boys

And sometimes it will come in the form of young women writing erotic paeans to monsters who would kill them.

writing

When we take only one side of that, and use it to demonize half of humanity, we are adding to the evil. We are helping to create a world where the monsters are not outside the gates, but right here amongst us. Masculinity isn’t the reason for terrorism.  And stomping out men won’t protect us from the monsters.

Just the opposite.  Having sympathy for Dzokhar Tsarnaev is having sympathy for the devil.  It’s a way of admitting that he could be “any man”.  That all men have the capacity to load a pressure cooker with ball bearings and tear the legs off children and leave them to bleed to death in the streets.  If all men are capable of that, then all men are dangerous.

The media WANTS you to feel sorry for Dzokhar. They want you to accept that he could be you.

Don’t believe it.  The only thing you should feel sorry about is that Dzokhar didn’t end up the same as Tamerlan.  I’ll confess this picture gives me satisfaction.  It’s an autopsy photo of Tamerlan.  Obviously graphic.

http://i.imgur.com/0U0ozqt.jpg

“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

― Albert Einstein

Let’s not be those people.  Let Dzokhar have his justice. I won’t be shedding a single tear.

Lots of love,

JB

    “I know you aren’t harmful.” WTF?!

    I’m so glad you wrote this. I was just railing at my husband (poor guy) about the fact that the media really whitewashes the role of women in terrorism. I’ve been reading about Tsarnaev’s mother and she sounds like a nut job who is most likely responsible for the radicalization of these two men. I have also been hearing that they found female DNA on the bomb fragments and the FBI is trying to figure out who it belongs to.

    But this whole fan-fiction bullshit… I don’t even know where to begin with that. Like you said, it’s not just sick, it’s evil.

    Ugh I hate fanfic in general, but here’s just a new reason to hate it.

    And re: masculinity being some great evil… I don’t get this “masculinity is expressed through large acts of terrorism” nonsense. It’s a blatant disregard of what patriarchy actually IS/was. If masculinity was about rampant evil and destruction, our species would not have survived. The whole point was “protect the women and the children” so the species could freaking survive. I swear.

    Also, as a side note, i was reading some interesting, what many would consider very misogynistic things regarding male and female relationships and how strongly women tended to defer to and seek to “obey” their men in relationships. People see stuff like that and they are like “Thank God for Feminism”… but I think it’s more a bit of a secret turn-on than “oppression”. It’s almost like, in a culture that was repressed in a lot of other ways there was almost a kink subtext that flowed through most relationships. But outside of that cultural context we see men as these assholes demanding sandwiches all the time. *eye roll* I think it’s something much more deeply and erotically ingrained.

    I’m confused by your reply. It seems to me not-uncommon for partnerships (sex and gender regardless) to have a dominant/submissive tone, where one party is more likely to take the lead, and the other is more likely to followup/suggest alterations. And, though I’m generalizing without stats, most women seem to agree that they want a man to take the lead on dates, especially first dates, and are turned off if that doesn’t happen. It doesn’t mean “obey unconditionally” but it does mean to put one person in charge generally. I don’t think anyone outside of a muslim household is ever suggesting unconditional obeyance.

    You are basically reacting to this situation like a feminist would react to a rapist who have been abused at a young age. Just doing what you suggested simply shows that the public is no different than the killers. A human being must be either mentally ill or psychologically pushed to extreme for him/her to turn to murder. No human being can pick up a weapon and simply kill someone. It causes shock and immense emotional distress. Its why alot of soldiers are psychologically fucked after a war. The two killers were likely brainwashed by extremist ideology thereby being convinced that what they are doing is righteous (same way radfembots feel that destroying men’s lives is the right thing to do). This is why military commanders care about morale and rulers first paint their enemies as being the devil himself before going on the offensive.

    Also studying the background of these killers will help law enforcement or better yet the general public detect a potential mass murderer before the mass murder occurs. Imagine if the people with whom the boston bombers interacted with (including Tamerlan’s boxing trainer) were equipped with the knowledge of what makes a person into a murderer. They could have stopped this from happening and those two little boys and a whole lot of people would have lived.

    Throwing oranges at them would not have brought back the dead. Neither would it deter other potential mass murderers. In fact seeing the public act like bullies and jackasses would only motivate them more and/or play right into the whatever manipulative extremist ideology a potential mass murderer is being fed.

    Definitely agree with JB on the erotic writing about the killers and those girls need help too (whether it be in form of discipline or not dunno). But regarding how to deal with the killers I disagree. Lock them up isolated in a psych ward and study them. See if their brain functions physically different as well etc etc. And after all the data has been gathered then put them down humanely.

    It’s been my experience that the more you try to stomp out masculine behavior in a boy, the more the fucked up man he becomes. Being masculine is great when you frame in in the context of society, but when you treat it like an evil, then the boy internalizes it and comes to view himself as evil.

    I would love to see a study that compares outcomes of boys raised by mainstream couples vs feminists. I think that may shed some light on the issue.

    Obviously, we need to contain this threat. Destroy the masculine before it destroys us.

    This is a core tenet of the more radical feminist thought. All men by their very nature are inherently violent and could pop off at any second. Therefore, in order to achieve the feminist goal of deconstructing Patriarchy, men and masculinity must be always painted as violent and evil. That way, masculinity, or so the theory goes, can be actually made evil and then rejected completely by society. If you can shame men into denying their masculinity, you are well on the road to turning them into women, the ultimate goal of feminism. (After which it will be all the easier to eliminate most or all of them.)

    This is not an accident, it’s a fundamental goal.

    As for terrorist bomber fanfic, it’s a natural outgrowth of the female desire for the bad boy. Of course, this is taking it to an extreme, but it’s not an unknown extreme. Serial killers and death row inmates get the most letter and marriage proposals from women of all prisoners. And many of them actually marry while in prison.

    http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/No-shortage-of-women-who-dream-of-snaring-a-2689657.php

    The female sympathy isn’t due to some misplaced maternal instinct as Salon would have us believe. And putting a fancy-sounding name on it like Hybristophilia doesn’t change the fact that many of these women are just turned on my powerful, violent men, the “bad boy” writ large.

    Is the porny terrorist fanfic evil? I don’t know. Maybe. But, then, 40% of women admit to having rape fantasies with a median frequency of once a month, and such fantasies are the lifeblood of the very lucrative romance novel industry. So, evil or just a particularly twisted hypergamy? I don’t know.

The masculine urge to build and create is now destroying the environment and somehow done to just control women, women were excluded. Then, after taking the good, creative, loving aspects of masculinity they say that masculinity is just about killing and fighting – because that’s the only part they’ve left.

    That there is just a part of hypergamy. As a teen I used to read all sorts of fanfiction, and I remember there was a lot of bad guy romance being written, even if he killed tons of innocent people (although I was more into reading bullied unloved hero stuff). Usually there is something wrong with his childhood, or he’s sad about something, and the heroine can cure all that. I dunno if I can call it evil, because it’s just a story written for the sexual pleasure of the writer and similar minds. But it probably made men co-evolve all those risk-taking displays of masculinity, including willingness to do violence. Maybe I’ve just been in the manosphere for too long, but this female taste fails to shock, and seems almost normal. Each time some guy kills tons of people, he is sent love letters and stuff. I didn’t believe it until Anders Behring Breivik became attractive to women. But there you go!

    So I wouldn’t link senseless violence to masculinity, and say masculinity if the root of evil. Masculinity is just a tool. It just so happens men have more tools to do direct violence like that, while women more often use indirect tools. Like you observe, men also have the same tool for saving and protecting, which women have less off…
    It’s silly to pretend men are passive risk-avoiding little darlings though, and are less directly violent (mostly to each other).

    To cull is to remove undesirable members of a population so that the remaining members have more resources to split between them.

    It is common in farming and ranching. If you’ve ever wondered why the apples you buy at the store are so much bigger than the ones you grow in your back yard it’s because the farmers selectively cull the apples when they are buds so the apples left grow bigger.

    Likewise ranchers tend to cull their livestock herd prior to winter so they have less to feed over the winter.

    Per definition, a terrorist attack is aimed to create a societal change through fear.

    Given that, it makes no sense to create an elaborate fear inducing plot, and when you got the attention of the world, when you get you chance to get you message out and try to make a societal impact… you deny any involvement.

    I could only watch the first half of that. It took a while for them to spit it out, but from the slow leak I think I followed.

    Apparently we’re supposed to believe that the Tsarnaev brothers were CIA operatives, used as useful stooges while the CIA framed them and bombed our citizens during the Boston marathon. For the purpose of…invasion of Syria. Implication being, apparently, the Russians have been our main interference there, but if we agree to assign the terrorist label to the people…the exact group wasn’t clear in the first half of the video, she just kept saying the Caucasus, guess we’re going to assign the terrorist label to the whole area (that’s a first), so that the Russians would feel free to really lay down the law over there. Because they’ve been awaiting world opinion, that’s how they roll, and really need our okay. For someone who repeatedly waxed poetic about the gross ignorance of the public in international matters this is quite a claim. She should really read up on the history of the area. Actually, it sounded as though the lady was asserting that all terrorists in that area are CIA fed operatives. So I guess we’re responsible for that Beslan massacre at the schoolhouse nine years ago when “our operatives” took a thousand hostages and nearly 200 children died.

    She was right in one respect, we do change our terrorist (and enemy) labels from time to time if prudence dictates it’s a good plan or necessary. It isn’t on a whim, as she implied. We were in bed with the Soviets during the great war. But currently only if and when those groups have agreed to certain terms and made serious concessions. We’ve needed plenty of people that we eventually had to stop working with due to continued bad behavior. We needed that base in Uzbekistan as much for logistical support when we left as we did when we started using it. The MEK she mentioned (though she called it the MKO, another acronym). In this particular case, the MEK in Iraq negotiated an agreement that resulted in the surrender of the MEK’s weapons and munitions caches, after a ceasefire that was effectively a surrender. Their heavy weapons were under control of US forces, and all munitions caches formerly belonging to the MEK were destroyed by 4th ID. The approximately 4,000 MEK members at Camp Ashraf were detained, disarmed and screened for involvement in past terrorist acts. But we did use what remained of the MEK. It would have been stupid to simply ignore a potential source of useful information.

    Okay, that was longwind….and only a modicum of what’s on my mind, but I won’t go further.

    Okay then at least do background checks on them (their history, culture, family, lifestyle, what happened in their lives etc etc). Such studies have been done for common criminals, gangsters and thugs and it was found that these people came from broken households deep in poverty. So the solution to tackling crime became tackling poverty. Less poverty means broken households and thus less crime. Why not apply the same for terrorists?? We already know being surrounded by hateful extremist ideologues (more often than not) can push a person to commit acts of terrorism. And no, unless you have constant exposure to alternative perspectives, even adults will become prey to psychological manipulation.

    One year for Christmas, my brother had a bunch of friends from college come stay with my family for a week. He didn’t tell my mom until they arrived that one of the girls in the group was a muslim. My brother attended a Christian university and the girl’s family wanted her to go to a place that shared the same values even if they didn’t share all the same doctrinal beliefs. (They were obviously not muslim fundamentalists.)

    My brother didn’t tell my mom the girl was a muslim until everybody got there because he knew my mom would freak out and worry and have all kinds of weird ideas in her head. Needless to say, everything was fine. My mother fell in love with that girl and probably would have been fine with my brother marrying her if they’d been more than friends. (They weren’t.) It was a big education for my family on how normal and “like most Christians” most muslims really are. i.e. the terrorists are like the Westboro Baptist Church, not representative of most by a long shot.

    I strongly disagree. Propensity for violence is not ipso facto a display of alpha behavior, nor does it indicate any natural propensity for leadership. Anyone drown a litter of kittens in a bag. It’s called pusillanimous violence. Shooting your mother while she sleeps/bombing people at the end of a marathon/ slaughtering children at school is not a display of dominance. When bucks duel for dominance to win the herd, they don’t duel bambi, they duel other bucks.

    One more thing. Just because something is natural, doesn’t mean it has to show up in every woman’s behavior. For example, some men rape. But most men do not. However, it is a trait that shows up in every culture and every time, which is likely because it’s not learned. Of course, being natural doesn’t automatically make it good.

    And even if we are speaking purely of internet confessions (rather than actions, like visits and letters), I wouldn’t dismiss it so easily. On the internet, anyone can be honest about their true desires without revealing themselves. It is meaningful.

Sure, there’s the overarching “Don’t like it? Don’t read it!” attitude, but these women (although lets be honest, the ones writing this shit are merely girls) are not considered normal. Or sane.

    Not to mention that women observably dig run of the mill assholes and badboys too and the single most prevalent female fantasies are rape fantasies containing varying degrees of violence.
