Once upon a time the term ‘feminist’ was used to denote anyone (generally a woman) who advocated equal rights and opportunities for men and women. But Feminism has long since morphed into a full-blown ideology — one that has nothing to do with gender equality.
Calling yourself a feminist because you believe in equal rights between the sexes is like calling yourself a white nationalist because you reject the principles of globalism and happen to be caucasian.
People need to understand this, because when you use their rhetoric, you are effectively licensing their ideas.
I gave kudos to my kid’s grandmother on Facebook for her unwitting participation in a particular movement I needn’t overtly mention.
Stan Lee died, and the Twitter feminazis acted like cunts, as Twitter feminazis (and feminists in general) are wont to do.
Then one of my guys sent me some crazy shit. Talked to an old friend.
Possible action tonight. All in all, an interesting day.
(Part II of this.)
Feminism is an ideology. If someone chooses to identify with an ideology — any ideology — it is reasonable to assume that they do so because they subscribe to that particular belief system.
In practice, people pick and choose which parts of an ideology they hold to. That doesn’t mean the ideology transforms into whatever it is they want it to be.
The gals at Women’s Co were very much representative of feminism. The main differences between then and now were that “diversity” and gender theory were still in the process of being woven in, and the leadership lay with the theorists themselves rather than politicians and celebrity advocates.
Which made for a number of conflicting ideas. And it wasn’t always clear which ones took precedence.
I started to respond to this post early this morning, only then I decided not to derail the conversation. Not on this. But the Stan Lee thing has me sufficiently pissed that I’m posting this on my own wall.
I got mixed up with feminism in college. I gradually figured out what they were really about, but I stuck around anyway for reasons that would only make sense to an 18-year-old.
The final straw came after somebody in Women’s Co gave a presentation on female genital mutilation.
It was accurate and well presented. Everyone made the appropriate noises of indignation, and the talking stick (or whatever the hell it was called) was passed around so we could all take turns virtue signaling our disapproval.
Everything went pretty much as you would have expected. That is, until the stick reached the last girl, who reminded us of our duty to be respectful of other cultures.
One by one, “minds” changed.
I used to compare it to the Wave at a sporting event — the way the same blank expression seemed to slide from one face to the next.
I now realize that the most accurate way of explaining what happened is in terms of the NPC meme. As soon as the command ‘cultural lens’ was initiated, the moral relativity programming clicked in, and even the girl who gave the presentation had little choice but to agree that WE had no right to judge.
That was it for me. I was finished. Feminism is an evil ideology rooted in Marxism and hate and has NOTHING to do with gender equality.

Friendly reminder to anything with a penis:
Without “affirmative consent,” it was rape. If you did “get her yes” only she now regrets having given it, it was rape.
Consent can be revoked if the sex didn’t go according to her expectations, or if she suffers from any form of mental illness (e.g., bipolar disorder) which she later determines to have affected her judgement.
That SHE was the one who put YOUR schroeder in her mouth has no bearing on whether or not you are a rapist.
And you most definitely are.
Facebook was exploding with identity politics earlier from people who supposedly disavow identity politics. It started off as an argument over whether Anti-Zionism necessarily entails Anti-Semitism.
It quickly turned into an argument over who has the authority to decide what Anti-Semitism entails. Most of those who weighed in agreed that it could only be *subjectively* defined by actual Jews. 🙄
Only then they started arguing over who qualified as a legitimate Jew. Picture a Venn diagram with three circles — labeled ‘Religion’, ‘Ethnicity’, and ‘Ancestry’. That’s how many different definitions of ‘Jew’ there were. And anyone who fell outside of a particular category had no right to weigh in on what qualifies as Anti-Semitism.
It was like watching feminists argue over whether ‘TERF’ is a derogatory term.
People are seriously fucking insane. And it’s not just the Regressive Left — their “logic” is bleeding out onto the rest of humanity.
