The real face of domestic terrorism? Radical white feminists. It’s not about equality and they’re not afraid to say it.

6 May

 

Damn.  I am in the middle of editing a very technically complicated 250 page document and it is sucking my time like crazy!

 

papers

 

Not so much that I can’t cruise around and read my favorite retards though, and look what I found!

 

Well ain’t this just a little peach of an article?

 

Here is Louise Pennington, writing for the HuffPo UK version.

 

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/louise-pennington/radical-feminism_b_3169754.html

 

You’re gonna need some brain bleach after this one.

 

I have always been a feminist. It is a label I chose for myself as a teenager, back before girl power was invented and when New Kids on the Block were cool.

 

Louise, Louise, Louise.  You give new meaning to the phrase “start as you mean to go on”.  Honeypie, you CANNOT have “always been a feminist” if it is a label you chose as a teenager, unless your mother had the longest pregnancy in the history of the universe and gestated you for 13 years.

At some point in your sad little existence, you were a human.  Just like the rest of us.  You probably understood that humans are all different from one another, some with talents and abilities that others do not share and that despite these differences, we were all equal.

 

My original feminism was about equality: women were equal to men and all we needed was the laws to force misogynists to stop being misogynists.

 

 

There.  You see?  Equality.

Here’s where you go off the rails, lovey. Women are equal as human beings.  We are not equal to men.  And until your wrap your little mind around that, you will never understand how to “solve” the problem of inequality.

 

An apple is equal to an apple.  It is not equal to an orange, although they are both fruits.  An Austin mini Cooper is equal to an Austin Mini Cooper. It is not equal to a Peterbilt, although they are both vehicles and both can be used to transport apples and oranges from one place to another.

 

peterbilt

 

See how that works?  You are confusing equity with equality.  Equity has to do with fairness, and equality is more about measurement.  Equality is removing gendered sports from the Olympics.  You wanna run? Run bitch.  You won’t win a single race.

 

Equity is about making sure that men and women have equal opportunities to run against competitors of equal skill.

 

starting

 

That’s why there are ladies out there with gold medals.  If the competition was thrown wide open, there would be no women athletes at all.

 

On average, men are stronger than women. They’re faster, smarter, and more willing to take risks. Deal with it.  Screaming that it isn’t true because it violates your sense of equality only means you need to take another look at your world and pick a different word.

 

Also, the earth is not flat and there be no dragons.

 

The older I get, the more I believe that ‘equality’ is nothing more than a smokescreen to prevent the true liberation of women. Equality before the law means nothing when violence is endemic; when women are most likely to live in poverty; when no one bothers to actually enforce the existing equality legislation. I grew up in an area of Canada where misogyny, race and class should have been impossible to miss but I did. We grew up with serious cases of cognitive dissonance; where hyper-masculinity was the norm and feminism didn’t exist. It was a great place to learn that as a middle class white woman my chances of being a victim of sexual violence were a lot lower than Aboriginal women but that was seen as normal, not something to be upset about. I may have labelled myself a feminist but I wasn’t a real feminist.

 

Let’s take these points one by one, shall we?

 

Violence is endemic.  Really?  Did you mean violence against women?  Or just violence in general?

 

You are, of course, aware that men are far more likely to be the victims of violent assault?

 

victim

 

In 2010, males (9.5 victimizations per 1,000 males) experienced violence by strangers at nearly twice the rate of females (4.7 per 1,000).

 

http://bjs.gov/content/pub/press/vvcs9310pr.cfm

 

They are also much more likely to be murdered and when the murderer is a SHE, she is more likely to pick a male victim than a female one.

 

Males are most often the victims and the perpetrators in homicides: males were more than nine times more likely than women to commit murder, and male and female offenders are more likely to target male than female victims.

 

http://bjs.gov/content/pub/press/htius.pr

 

And god help young black men.  They are the most likely to be victimized of all. In 2005, 49% of all the people murdered in the US were black men.  Almost half.

 

http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-201_162-3153497.html

 

But you know what?  This violence that you seem to think is endemic is actually not.  Violent assaults and murders and crime overall has been declining for decades.  The scary world you think you live in?  It doesn’t exist anywhere but in your mind.

 

Violent crime has declined to rates not seen for forty years.

 

http://www.wanttoknow.info/g/violent_crime_rates_reduction

 

Did I mention that the earth is not flat?

 

poverty

 

Let’s look at poverty rates now.  Women are NOT more likely to live in poverty. The poverty rates for men and women are fairly equally distributed.

 

You are likely basing that statement on research like this:

 

In 2010, the gender distribution of people in poverty was

 

45% of people in poverty were male; males accounted for 49% of the total population

55% of the people in poverty were female; females accounted for 51% of the total population

 

The poverty rate by gender were

 

14.0% for males

16.2% for females

 

According to 2010 US Census, the population hit 308,745,538.

 

49% of those people are male: 151,285,314

51% of those people are female: 157, 460, 224

 

So 25,508,556 women and 21,179,943 men live in poverty.

 

Those numbers leave out a few important variables:

 

Women live longer than men

The prisoner population is not included in the count of men who live in poverty

The homeless population is not included in the count of men who live in poverty

 

prisoners

 

Let’s account for those variables.  The male prisoner population in 2010 was  1,499,573.  That brings our count of men living in poverty to 22,679,516.

 

http://bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/p10.pdf

 

homeless

 

The estimated homeless population in 2012 is 633,782, 62% of whom are men.   Add another 392,944 to the count for men, bringing us up to 23,072,460.

 

http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/press/press_releases_media_advisories/2012/HUDNo.12-191

http://homeless.samhsa.gov/ResourceFiles/hrc_factsheet.pdf

 

Life expectancy for men is 76 years and for women it’s 81 years.  So when Think Progress reports that women over 75 are three times more likely to be living in poverty as men it’s because THE MEN ARE DEAD ALREADY.

 

http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/poverty/report/2008/07/30/4690/elderly-poverty-the-challenge-before-us/

 

The gross number of men and women living in poverty is more or less equal (23 million vs 25.5 million), but that doesn’t take into account the fact that women live, on average, five years longer than men.  While there are more numbers of women living in poverty (because there are more women than men), the RISK of ending up in poverty is actually higher for males.

 

Although poverty increased for all race-gender groups (except for nonwhite males in their 60s and nonwhite females in their 20s, 50s, and 60s), the largest increases occurred for white males as a whole and for nonwhite males in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2831356/

 

So this scary world full of poor ladies eating cat food out of a tin?  That world doesn’t exist either.

 

No one bothers to enforce existing equality legislation?  You mean legislation like forcing corporate boards to hire women?

 

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/01/13/us-france-equality-idUSTRE70C5ZA20110113

 

Or legislation eradicating gender from language?

 

http://jezebel.com/sweden-introduces-new-gender-neutral-pronoun-makes-bei-472492079

 

Or legislation  creating human rights and equality tribunals and offices?

 

http://www.redtapechallenge.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/enforcing-the-law/

 

We spend a shit ton of taxpayer money enforcing these kind of stupid laws in the name of equality.  Mostly because someone, at some point, thought a mouthy broad like you had something important to say.

 

Don’t worry.  That oversight will be corrected.  Just give us time.

 

duct tape

 

I was a feminist who lacked any kind of analysis of women as a class. I didn’t understand that feminism was a political theory. I knew I couldn’t have gotten through university as a teenage single mother without the benefit of a, still flawed, welfare system but I didn’t realise just how privileged I was; even with a student loan debt that would make British students cry! It wasn’t until the Canadian federal and provincial governments started slashing these programs that I started thinking about feminism as a political theory. I started self-defining as a socialist-feminist, but I still didn’t think about women in terms of an oppressed class. Instead, I focused on the idea of class, in Marxist terms, as a barrier for ‘some’ women. I assumed that equal access to education and equality before the law would solve all women’s problems.

 

Oh no!  Did you lose all your special privileges?  Well now.  That sucks, doesn’t it?  It took the loss of your heavily subsidized education to get you to think about women as an oppressed class because student loan programs don’t affect men, right?  The welfare system doesn’t have an impact on men, right?  Those entitlements belong only to women, and the loss of them constitutes oppression?

 

I was wrong.

 

You got that right.

 

 

Feminism requires more than equality. It requires liberation. It requires the liberation of ALL women from male violence.

 

What “male violence?”  What the fuck are you talking about?

 

slap

 

Look at this article, just for illustration.  Read the comments.  Seriously.  ALL OF THESE WOMEN are “liberated from male violence” because the men they decided to beat up let them walk away.  I’m guessing that pretty much every man Louise has ever met wanted to punch her in the big fat mouth, but they didn’t.  You’re already liberated, sweetheart.

 

Have You Ever Beat Up A Boyfriend Because Uh We Have

http://jezebel.com/294383/have-you-ever-beat-up-a-boyfriend-cause-uh-we-have

 

Until two years ago, I would have still identified as a socialist-feminist, although my awareness of the structural oppression of women was growing. The unrelenting misogyny and rape apologism on the left made me reconsider my political stance as did the creation of the Feminist/Women’s Rights board on Mumsnet. The more I read on Mumsnet, the more radical my feminism became. I started reading Andrea Dworkin, Natasha Walters, Kate Millett, Susan Faludi, Susan Maushart, Ariel Levy, Gail Dines, Germaine Greer, and Audre Lorde. I learned about cultural femicide and I started reading only fiction books written by women: Isabel Allende, Alice Walker, Maya Angelou, Kate Mosse, Margaret Atwood, Kris Radish, Barbara Kingsolver, and Andrea Levy amongst many others. I started reading about women’s lives and the power of real sisterhood.

 

Really? You’re really going to say that?  I refuse to read any book written by a man BECAUSE it was written by a man.

 

I refuse to read any book written by a Jew. Ew. Jews.

I refuse to read any book written by a black person.  Ew. Black people.

I refuse to read any book written by a gay person.  Ew. Gay people.

I refuse to read any book written by a fat person.  Ew. Fat people.

I refuse to read any book written by a …. man?

 

My feminism, both the definition and activism, has changed dramatically over the past 18 years. Now, I self-define as an anti-capitalist, pro-radical feminist as I believe that the source of women’s oppression is male violence which is perpetuated by the structures of our capitalist economy. The Patriarchy may predate capitalism but we cannot destroy it without destroying capitalism too. I don’t always feel a ‘real feminist’ or a ‘good enough’ feminist. All I know is that I am a feminist who truly believes that women have the power to liberate all women from male violence; that feminism is fundamentally about the power of sisterhood.

 

Oh good.  You don’t want to destroy our culture, but our economy, too.  Excellent plan.  Hope you know how to make a good fire and set a snare because without capitalism, you will be back living in the dark ages before you know it.

My feminist activism involves privileging women’s voices over men’s voices. I now only read books written by women. I try to get my main news from women’s news sites and women journalists like Soraya Chemaly, Samira Ahmed, Bidisha, Helen Lewis, Bim Adewunmi, and Sarah Smith. I follow only women journalists on Twitter and Facebook. I support organisations which are placing women’s experiences at the centre of public debate: Women Under Siege, The Everyday Sexism Project, and The Women’s Room UK.

 

over

 

And there you have it.  Not women equal to men.  Women OVER men.

 

Could it be any more clear?

 

My feminism acknowledges the realities of intersectionality and, whilst I’m not perfect, I am more aware now of how disparate women’s experiences are from one another. I still believe that women, as a political class, have the ability to liberate ourselves from the Capitalist-Patriarchy but I do so with the knowledge that I do not yet fully understand the full impact of the multiple oppressions in women’s lives. My feminism is a journey. The destination is the full liberation of women but we are all on different paths and at different points. My feminism requires I listen to my sisters and support them in the ways they deem best. My feminism is women-centered.

 

Women at the center.  Men at the margins.

 

Feminists have the power to change the world. It requires listening and respect but we have the power to save each other; after all the largest study on global violence against women has conclusively proved that feminists hold the key to positive change for women.

 

Feminism doesn’t care what happens to men and boys.  They are not interested in humanity.  They are not interested in fairness.  They are not interested in justice.  They are not interested in peace.  They are not interested in equality.

 

They want women at the center, women’s voices and experiences privileged over all others and women saving each other.

    Well JB, you just showed how a feminist mind works. First they think equality then they realize they need more because even after attaining said equality, their pathetic insecurities are still not settled. This is why I don’t take feminists seriously unless they in top positions in media, gov’t, business etc and are using their positions of power to force their bullshit on others.

    This brand of Radical Feminism has been part of the movement from the beginning (see: S.C.U.M. Manifesto) but was pretty quickly marginalized in the 70s because most feminists knew that the radicals would scare the ever-loving shit out of most women. Hence the writer’s soft-peddled early feminism, the kind that was just looking for “equality.”

    But the thing to understand is that feminism is indeed a movement, and sort of by definition, movements never end in-and-of-themselves. Movements can never reach–or never admit reaching–their goals. So the goal-posts have to be moved. And the more success a movement has, the greater the need to raise the stakes to keep people interested and the cash and benefits flowing in.

    This writer’s “journey” is emblematic of how the feminist movement has metastasized to it’s natural more radical form while moving closer to its Marxist roots.

    JB, you’re correct to note that the statistics on violent crime have been going down for some time now. Particularly rape statistics. Looking at the data from which the most flogged rape statistics comes from reveals part of the slight-of-hand going on. In a 2011 US DOJ study, the reported incidence of rape/sexual assault (so, not just rape) was 0.7 per 1000 people. But the feminist claim even higher figures by including other forms of assault, such as verbal assault (“I’m going to rape you!”) as actual rape.

    It’s no coincidence that in a era of declining violence in general and against women in particular, the feminist movement has ratcheted up the rhetoric as well as stretching definitions. Domestic violence isn’t just physical violence anymore, but verbal and “emotional” violence. In other words, if you have an argument and her feelings are hurt, that can be criminal domestic violence. It’s also not coincidence that in an era of declining rape (see above) that the rhetoric over “Rape Culture” has been ramped up to the point where society is just oozing rape out of every pore like booze from an alcoholic after a bender.

    The movement can’t stop. The momentum must be maintained. Movements don’t cease on their own until they kill the host society, finally implode under the weight of their own inherent contradictions as they grow more radical, or until they’re stopped from the outside. The first two usually leave a lot of damage and smoking ruins. The third usually involves much more blood.

    But make no mistake: feminism will become more and more radical, pushing more extreme narratives to hold as cudgels over the heads of men, cudgels that will definitely be used.

    Unless they are stopped. Fortunately, the logical absurdities of their own arguments are useful weapons against them that will dissuade more and more women. I fear, though, it might already be too late…

    “There are no feminists in natural disasters.”

    Yes there are.

    In the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake/tsunami global aid agencies were refusing food aid to boys and men. Who knows? Next similar event it might be medical aid too.

    The World Economic Forum’s “Global Gender Gap Report” a couple of years back told us that women, and only women, are disadvantaged in every respect everywhere. Where disadvantage was measurable for men it was balanced against some other factor and negated in every instance. Rather than hide this the report goes to some lengths to justify it in it’s first few pages.

    Several years ago the World Health Organisation released news that women now have longer life expectancies than men in every nation state in the world. Their tone was celebratory.

    As well as being the victims of three quarters of all violence globally boys and men are also three quarters of those subjected to forced labour. As with violence the only time we are allowed to know or care is when it happens to women.

    All the trappings of a quiet gendercide from the highest levels.

    The problem a lot of people seem to have with “equality” is that they want it to mean “sameness” instead of equal in value. No one would say an apple was empirically “better” than an orange or vice versa. Some people might have a preference but we would think someone was just looney if they decided full stop that one of those types of fruit was “superior” empirically and in all ways to the other type of fruit. But people don’t seem to grasp that when talking about human beings.

    If women are not “equal” to men… then they aren’t “as good”. But that’s BS the feminists sold. It’s the feminists who want to be men and… failing that… want to force culture as a whole to pretend it’s so. I happen to LIKE being female and think I’ve got it pretty good AS a female. I would personally never want to trade places and be male. I don’t think women are “better” than men, either. But feminists really have to get over their penis envy. It’s just unhealthy.

    Good stuff, LostSailor. Incidentally this is what worries me about MRA. While I wholeheartedly agree with about 95% of what they stand for and are fighting for… the very issues with having a somewhat gendered ‘movement’ means that if they achieve most of their goals, it will just keep going to more and more extremes.

    And MRA is just as gendered as feminism… the agenda is in the name. “Men’s”, “Fem”… when we should be concerned with HUMAN rights and any place it’s not ethical, we fix it.

    This type of behavior is not just a “female problem”, it’s a human problem. People in movements can’t admit they won and go home… they have to keep pushing because the meaning of their lives became based upon their cause, and without it they are lost.

    Re: too late… probably so. Even though most women do not identify as feminist and refuse to accept that label… we’ve been marinating in so much cultural feminism and man hate that a lot of women have many of these attitudes even though they vocally deny feminism. i.e. listen to almost any group of “normal women” bitch about their husbands/boyfriends like their disrespect is totally “normal”. It’s not normal, but it’s been normalized, and that’s part of the problem.

    Well, men ARE incredibly useful, and I for one, am thankful for that. A part of the genders being actually different is that there are some things you guys can do that we just aren’t very great at. The problem is the disrespect and the treating men like slaves who “owe women things” instead of being grateful and decent and giving something back. i.e. there was a time when a man fixed the dishwasher and his wife made him a nice dinner and kept the house clean. They had different roles and different places they each excelled but each was GIVING something of value to the other. Now women are encouraged to just take and not only to just take without giving anything (since apparently what women have to give is demeaning), but to take without gratitude. IMO that is the problem, not that men are super useful and women get that.

    Well, Z, I’m not an MRA. And while I generally agree with the issues, I don’t agree with the MRA tactics, including blogging tactics. I can appreciate some of what’s post, for example, at AVfM, but I’m not going to join them. Because you’re right, it’s activism based on feminist activism.

    I prefer the Red Pill way of teaching men to act like men. It’s a much better way of changing the playing field on the ground, which is the way that change really happens.

    My “it’s too late” is only slightly tongue-in-cheek. There is a lot of work to do, but there are a lot of women who like the preference, but still want traditional relationships. It’s only too late if those of us who want to be real are real.

    I don’t really support “activism,” I support spreading the Red Pill both underground and above ground. It’s just that a lot of women and men aren’t really ready to hear it.

    Maybe we’ll have a Red Pill enclave with which to rebuild civilization if necessary…

    I didn’t assume you were MRA. I wasn’t sure one way or the other. And I read AVfM sometimes, too. Some of the posts I really agree with, some I think are just going to alienate women who would otherwise be sympathetic and on their side. (Maybe they don’t care, but feminism has been so successful because they were able to get a lot of men on their side. MRA would do well to learn from that.)

    I get that many of them have been hurt and they’re angry, but on the Internet if you are creating a movement and not putting your best foot forward, you’re going to alienate people who would otherwise join you in your fight. So it’s completely counter-productive to let emotions rule. (And by ‘you’ I mean the general third person you here, not you personally.)

    Is red pill male the same as the zeta male concept? Basically opting out of all the games and manipulation meant to control you?

    The biggest issues feminism has caused for the average woman is turning romantic relationships into battlegrounds as if this is “normal”.

    But how do you define women for who they are? And if men love women for specifically feminine traits, how is that not the same thing? Again, I think you’re allowing abusive behavior taint your view of how this is supposed to work when it’s not based on callous using.

    It’s not supposed to be about one gender using the other but about both helping each other in the ways they excel at… complementing each other. Of course I prefer a man who can fix stuff and/or lead. That doesn’t make him a tool like a drill. And a lot of men like women who are feminine and pretty and cook things… it doesn’t mean you want to enslave us. Feminism has turned something that in my opinion started out pretty beautiful into something very ugly. It started with the women being all defensive about everything, and now the men are becoming defensive. And nobody will be happy that way.

    Somebody has to allow themselves to be a little vulnerable. Or intimacy can’t happen. And yeah, I think it should be the women, since in general women (even though it was lead by a small minority), are the ones who broke trust first.

    I was listening to BBC Women’s Hour the other day, because sometimes I’m a little masochistic, and there was an activist on there (always weary when a person has nothing better to self identify as than ‘activist’) who stated quite clearly that there is a “new form of domestic abuse” called “financial abuse”. This is apparently when a man who goes out to work and earns all the money and pays all the bills, forgets to leave his wife cash for groceries, pocket money etc. That’s FORGET, by the way, not refuse.

    Didn’t mean to imply you assumed I was an MRA. But I agree that the hurt and anger tend to make a lot of MRA postings a bit too whiny, which defeats their purpose.

    I’ve only read a little bit about this “zeta male” concept, but don’t really think much of it. It seems an attempt by MRA to re-brand and claim Red Pill theory, which doesn’t need re-branding. Red Pill isn’t about opting out (well, the MGTOW guys aside) as it is understanding the current social dynamics wrought by feminism and the female imperative and using that knowledge to our advantage (which applies to both men and women). It’s about being better men, living our lives for ourselves (and our loved ones) and knowing the rest will follow. It’s not so much being against feminism as it is being wryly amused by feminism.

    When I first took the Red Pill (and there’s been enough written about the process that my reaction seems common) there was a period of anger, not at women but at myself for having swallowed the lies. But part of the process is getting beyond and letting go of anger, which MRA seems to hold on to.

    Righteous anger is good in a man; butt-hurt anger is much less masculine…

    Additionally, rich people create jobs. Given that many people refuse to start their own businesses and think somebody “owes them a job” (if they even want to work at all), it’s curious that they should drive off the few actually pro-active enough to have jobs available to give them.

    MGTOW=”Men Going Their Own Way.” These are guys that have basically said “screw it” and want nothing to do with feminist society or women in general. Sometimes called “going ghost.”

    And no need for apologies, I never take things posted in an anonymous internet forum to heart.

    As for reading up on the Red Pill, I came here via The Private Man blog, but a) that’s a blog focused on dating advice for older men and b) he’s blogging less now because of a new business focus. But the archives can be interesting.

    Most of the Red Pill (Game) manosphere isn’t MRA; there’s some overlap, but the non-MRA part is much more widespread and diverse. There are a number of sub-sets ranging from just pick-up blogs to relationship and marriage blogs to christian blogs.

    For overall perspective, I’d start with Rollo Tomasi at therationalmale.com.

    For a christian perspective, I’d recommend Dalrock (dalrock.wordpress.com) or SunshineMary (http://sunshinemaryandthedragon.wordpress.com/)

    And check out the links in their blogrolls.

    I first came to it years ago via Roissy (now Heartiste), who is more pick-up oriented and a purveyor of scathing prose. This is the hardcore and not for the faint of heart, but the older archives might be worth a visit once you get your feet wet.

    Vox Day’s Alpha Game (http://www.alphagameplan.blogspot.com/) is often worth a look, but again, not necessarily for the faint of heart.

    I mostly agree with you, but think about this: Imagine a loving couple. They both work full-time jobs making relatively equal salary. If the woman quit to stay home with the kids, would the man continue to love and respect her as he had before? If the man quit, would the woman love and respect him as before? In most (not all) cases the woman is very likely to begin to “fall out of love” with her husband.

    Next, imagine one loving couple. Because of depression issues, the man has to quit his full-time job and go on disability. The wife has to work full-time to make up the difference. Now, imagine the same couple, but this time, the woman is depressed. She stops showing any affection to her husband, including sex or hugs or kind words. How much more likely is the woman to divorce the man in the first situation, as compared to the reverse in the second situation.

    I’m going to beg to differ. (And I detest Atlas Shrugged, complete and utter rot.)

    The very wealthy, the so-called 1%, aren’t evil, but they’re not necessarily the deserving, productive people who are rich by the sweat of their brow that they’d like you to believe. The 1% got there on large parts of luck (i.e., they were born there to start), and the kind of old-school networking that keeps them there and the riff-raff out. Sure, many of the 1% work hard and contribute to society while earning their wealth, but many more don’t. Investing in the stock market, hedge funds, derivatives, etc. does actually very little to create jobs or benefit society but does much to create more wealth for the 1% by what is essentially rigged gambling.

    Rich people don’t really create jobs; that’s just propaganda. Middle-class businesses and small to medium corporations create jobs. Sometimes they get help in terms of capital investment, but not always. So what creates jobs? Demand. Consumer demand. Where there’s growing demand for goods and services, there will be growing demand for labor.

    The very rich and the very large corporations they run are doing just fine. Their taxes are low or assets sheltered and are pulling in profits and sitting on piles of cash. By conventional theory, jobs should be booming. But they’re not. High debt loads and stagnating or decreasing income has stifled demand. Hence not many jobs.

    I don’t demonize the wealthy. but I don’t lionize them either…

I know more than a few teachers that are totally freaked out by the fact that the state education budgets (especially pensions) have been cut in states that are going broke.

    What really gets me though are the people I know who are busily getting PhD’s in liberal arts subjects under the assumption that they can be absorbed back into a college system that has no more room to keep hiring teachers. I’ve never seen so many “smart” people shocked by their inability to get a job after wasting so many years on their education.

I agree that the bizarro cultural concept of men and women being ‘at war’ in a relationship (and the notion that it is usually because men need a ‘mommy figure’ or that they are emotionally immature, etc.) is despicable and wildly irritating, but I don’t necessarily agree that one can view it in an ‘it’s all feminism’s fault’ vacuum.

    Well, I didn’t necessarily say that the 1% all earned their money by the sweat of their brow. A lot is inheritance and has been kept in families. When you inherit the family business and the family business is… oh look we’re oil tycoons… that’s hardly doing much. At the same time, a lot of wealthy people DO things… at the very least they create jobs (no not all of them, but a lot of rich people are big business owners and there are a lot of jobs there. Could we really argue that Jeff Bezos hasn’t created jobs? Amazon employs TONS of people). And if you are wealthy but don’t LEARN to do things… some things… you may very well piss away all your wealth by just being plain stupid.

    I agree with you regarding the job creation by the small and mid-sized businesses.

    I have never actually READ Atlas Shrugged because it’s too damn long. I saw the first part of the movie and liked it. I see some of what she was trying to say and agree with some parts of it. Like I agree that we don’t live in a meritocracy because people always want what they didn’t earn to be given to them to keep things “fair”. And government keeps giving in and creating this or that program and higher taxes.

    We do have a system that seems to want to penalize the wealthy out of jealousy and basic lameness. IMO. And yeah, I do think after awhile, those who do produce and work and earn and make something of themselves start looking for an escape hatch.

    I think a lot of his respect boils down to risk. Many wealthy people get that way because they’re willing to invest a lot of money in companies that do employ a lot of people with no guarantee of return. He could explain it much better than I do- but that’s the gist of it from my point of view.

    But most of the people he works for are self made. Inherited wealth, unless vast, tends to whittle away over time. He has some legacy clients that will likely spend themselves into insolvency before they reach retirement age. He does not like those people at all.

I corrected course before I ruined my marriage and now, 11 years into that marriage, we’re both really happy. I love him I respect him. He loves and respects me.

    To a large degree I agree with you. I think, though, that the secret to reversing that is for women to come to understand how deeply men love them. Once you understand how much a man loves you it changes how you see him. At least it did for me. (but maybe I’m not typical) And money arguments don’t really work on me because I make a lot more than Mr. Z. I was scared it was going to affect us, but mostly because so many men seem to be threatened by a wife that makes more (though I’ve got some theories that include other factors so it may not really be “just the money” when it’s a factor for a man). Either way, I don’t love Mr. Z less. We’ve gotten much closer in the past few years, and that’s when I’ve been doing so well. He’s proud of me. I don’t see him as “less”. It’s ludicrous in my kind of field to expect salaries to “match up”.

    But I get that Mr. Z and I are probably not typical in a lot of ways. Maybe we are just generally weird people, lol. I do think you’re right that a lot of women do tend to fall out of love if the husband stays home and stops earning. I think a lot of that is hardwired into DNA, an evolutionary survival thing that isn’t necessarily valid now from a logical standpoint but a lot of people still default to it. It doesn’t make it “right”, but I don’t think most women do this crap out of the evilness of their hearts.

    Typos are a bitch aren’t they?

    I read somewhere that most inherited wealth is spent, on average, in three generations. But I’m not sure that’s true. I have also heard the theory that if you redistributed all the wealth in the world it would eventually find itself back in the same hands it started with. In other words, the people who earned the wealth in the first place are the same ones who would earn it back if they had to start all over again. And the mooches would still be mooches. That rings true to me.

    At the risk of being a total Bobble-head with you, I agree. Just because it sounds right doesn’t mean it is right… but damn it sounds right lol. I’m willing to entertain it’s highly probable.

    I think they have a capacity. I think they are taught that capacity is weak and demeaning and will put them at risk of pain. Women USED to have good qualities. ALL of those qualities have been socially engineered out of women to be replaced by some hideous frankenstein thing.

    When you’re taught to believe that men will hurt you and you have to be on guard all the time, you can never deeply love. Loving someone deeply is about allowing yourself to be vulnerable with them. Feminists have so scared women about the ‘evils of men’ that most women can never be that vulnerable. It’s defensiveness. re: no women saying anything until just recently… I think just recently a lot of us have finally just hit our breaking point. The louder and screechier feminism gets and the more everything becomes a battle of the sexes, the more we’re just fed up.

    I don’t know if I’m just noticing it more or in the US if it was more about the 2012 election cycle but all the gendered crap got REALLY loud and suddenly it was EVERYWHERE on facebook and Twitter, and it continues to be loud. And I’m to the point where I unfriend and unfollow people based on their feminism.

    ERA was only defeated because women realized that if it became law, they’d be encumbered with actual responsibilities as well as rights.

    I don’t believe women are evil, I just believe they have an extreme empathy deficit to men.

    But I disagree that “women need to realize how much men love them.” LOTS of women will gladly choose heartless, rapacious thugs over men who love and take care of them.

    About the only thing any quasi-honest historian can point to is the fact that both men and women in communist societies suffered equally in misery.

    I’ve got you beat on that score.
    A few years back, I met a woman who divorced due to financial abuse. Her husband’s “crime”? Not buying her a fur coat. Adding insult to injury: they were a single-income military family stationed in Florida (yes, he couldn’t afford the expense and the item wasn’t even a necessity for survival.) She received her cash and prizes, bought her precious fur coat, and is now living in poverty in central Florida with a useless lump of fur.

    I think that’s because they confuse alpha/dominant with abusive/asshole. Nobody taught them better. And I agree about the empathy deficit… I just do not believe it is something naturally “inborn” in most women, but something they came to by way of all this toxic bullshit they were fed.

    Oh I disagree. My father-in-law is career military and they are as much a political organization as anything you’ve ever seen. Politics is pushing women onto the front line, not suitability or ability. I’ve heard this from many, many people (not just men) who have first hand experience with this. I married into a military family and my FIL retired at a 2-star General rank. I heard a lot about politics over the years.

    Fascism, Socialism, and Communism are not all that different. Socialism and Communism are clearly left-wing phenomena. In addition, Socialism and Communism are pretty inseparable, as one inevitably leads to the other (hence the oxymoronic nature of “Democratic Socialism”). Fascism, however, is also left wing. It borrows heavily from Socialism (Mussolini was himself a Socialist before WWI). Mussolini based the system off of “the Socialism of the trenches,” in which the nation-state was elevated above all and was used as the collective, rather than some sort of global class-based collective. All three systems belong under the label of Leftism.
