I spoke to the BBC about #womenagainstfeminism

24 Jul

I think it’s kind of interesting how the feminist had full studio cameras and makeup and editing and the rest of us were on low quality grainy Skype footage.

 

Guess who got the last word?

    Good Job
    You came across well.
    When it says “The suffragettes faced death” Isn’t that nonsense? I was under the impression than no suffragettes were killed, and there was even a very limited amount of violence used against them.

    Even if they did, which they didn’t, who cares? This 2014. What are feminists doing now?

    There’s something about the BBC giving out misinformation that bothers me. Not sure what it is…………

    One suffragette was killed, namely Emily Davison. She stepped out onto a Derby race track and was run over by the King’s horse. It is unclear what she was trying to achieve, but most likely, she didn’t intend to get herself killed.

    Quite the contrary, suffragettes were handled with kid gloves. The earliest snowball of feminism, the anti-saloon movement, had women literally walking into saloons and destroying someone else’s private property in full view of the law, without getting arrested.

    Women are never subject to the levels of force that men are, and it will always be so. Most women fundamentally lack the capacity to understand the power of the state because they are treated like victims in all venues. It’s always very easy for humans to ignore the violence behind the system that provides for you.

    I think it’s time to tear down suffragette city.

    It is indeed nonsense. Suffragettes knew they could get away with things that men couldn’t (nothing changes, does it?) The only death I can think of was of Emily Davison, who was killed after she walked in front of the King’s horse at an Epsom Derby and was struck by it. Evidently she was of the view that she could attach a suffragette poster onto either the horse or rider, with both travelling at 30mph. It was an attempt at propaganda, because it was one of the first horse races to be televised for later viewing by cinema audiences.

    Even the ‘Guardian’ admits Davison didn’t knowingly risk martyrdom for the ’cause’. I have a link to the piece on my blog. It’s known she was looking forward to a holiday a week or two later.

    The jockey was deeply traumatised by the event, and many years later committed suicide by putting his head in a gas oven. Try and find THAT fact in any feminist account of the event. I guess he was acceptable ‘collateral damage’.

    Imagine how different the world would be if media outlets actually showed a full, factual account of events relevant to the issue being discussed.

    Couldn’t be the fact that it’s a state-operated news organization, promising unbiased news reporting, payment for which is mandatory for the subjects of that realm, with non-payment punishable by confiscation of property and eventual imprisonment for non-compliance?

    Couldn’t be, could it?

    Goober, the output of the BBC is HIGHLY biased, trust me, and for many years Brits have complained about its relentlessly left-wing / pro-feminist / anti-male narratives. I made a complaint about one piece on DV – only male perpetrators and female victims shown, as usual – which breached 50+ BBC editorial guidelines. The complaint was rejected at stages #1, #2, and #3. I’m not going to waste time with stage #4. No point. Life’s too short.

    I have loads of criticism for Ayn Rand, but I had to read more about her after seeing all the brooding shadowy videos of her lit just right to make her look like a vampire while criticizing “altruism”. (My take, Ayn Rand was an incurable optimist.)

    I thought you came out fresh and sassy though. Besides, the over-produced video of the Indian feminist (Indian women are good!) had to resort to the word, “real”. That’s an automatic fail in my book. How is the water supply doing in India these days?

    Of course, I grew up with “The Real Thing: Coke” which of course is the most fabulous beverage in the universe even though they’ve changed the recipe several times in order to add more sugar or HFCS–whichever happens to be cheaper depending on the location of the bottling plant. At least they got rid of the cocaine. The irony that may be lost on your generation however is that in those days, cocaine was cut with sugary baby formula. If you wanted the “real” stuff, you had to get it straight from Colombia. Columbian women are good!

    Watch the pretty pictures. Here, drink this…

    Master Beta said that he couldn’t figure out why the BBC’s obvious bias bothered him. I responded.

    I was not attempting to argue that the BBC was unbiased.

    Holy shit, that is the scariest echo chamber of a site I have ever been to. Literally. I honestly think I have to emigrate to antarctica now in a hopeless attempt to escape those “people.” It is literally terrifying that those are self professed educated wymyn. Honestly, everything that is wrong with the world is on view in that article and the comments after. Please don’t link to sites like that anymore without a trigger warning. I have been scarred for life.

    You’re right about getting the last word being one of the best things about this. You’re juxtaposed against the feminist condescendingly demanding that anybody who disagrees with feminism do more research with you anticipating such a juvenile objection and joking, “You need to embrace feminism because if you don’t, you’re dumb!” Point, counter-point. Stripped of the sophistry and the snark, the hollow contents of the Oxford-accent beseechment on base display. Think like us, or you’re dumb.

    Yeah, that’s exactly what I thought. I’ve always considered, somewhat ironically I suppose, that the Suffragette’s movement is all the proof if proof be needed that women have never been oppressed. Or at least they certainly weren’t oppressed at that time. If you can protest against the current political system for change, and not be met with a violent response, and actually have your demands met, you are not oppressed. Not even close.
