Do you even science, bro?

Every time one of my woke friends says something about how people on the right don’t “believe” in science, I ask them how many genders there are.

I have yet to receive a direct response to this question.

Waves of Feminism

0

For the record:

The “1st” wave was the suffragettes.  Not so much an ideology as a movement.

2nd-wave feminism happened around the seventies.  Started off as a movement, but quickly became infiltrated by cultural Marxists.  Would later be used to rationalize much of the third-wave feminist nonsense.

3rd-wave feminism started off with the riot girl scene — female punk rockers with little to no talent or concept of propriety.  It would eventually make its way to the universities to merge with what second-wave feminism had become (Womyn’s Studies) and the growing push for diversity and multiculturalism.

4th-wave feminism is characterized by intersectionality.  (Because multiculturalism wasn’t “diverse” enough.)  This one originated squarely in the universities with the feminist appropriation of LGBT issues and the advent of modern “Gender Studies”.

(“Gender Studies” actually used to refer to the branch of Womyn’s Studies that dealt with male/female relations.  Back when there were still only TWO genders.)

[DISCORD] Philosophical Struggle

0

You can’t get through to the ones who are that far gone — the ones who don’t simply deny facts, but actually fail to see what’s right under their noses.

The ones we need to get through to are the ones on the fringes.  The ones who aren’t so fully gone that ideology is able to supersede reason.

And there are a lot of people who have remained willfully ignorant, simply because they despise the churlishness that often accompanies political arguments.  We need to reach them too, because they need to realize that what’s ultimately going on here isn’t a political struggle but an philosophical one.

Are we going to let racism and brutality dictate our future?  Are we going to discard science and medicine because we’re afraid of hurting people’s feelings?  Is truth whatever each of us chooses it to be, or do we live in an objective reality?

Politics comes second to all that.

[DISCORD] Reactive & Regressive

0

The Regressive Left is inherently reactive.  That’s what ultimately sets them apart from actual left-wing progressives like Tim Pool, Lucas Lynch, and Sargon.  The left has been sucked dry of independent thought, and they aren’t able to come up with any new ideas now that their progressive handlers have immersed themselves in identity politics and intersectional ideology.

And no, I don’t believe that the Democratic leadership subscribes to an iota of what they preach.  People like Hillary and Obama are tacticians — not NPCs — and labeling them as such isn’t productive in the least.

The Dems are sitting on a powder keg, playing with matches.  The blue checkmarks, the #resisters, the Democratic Socialists — you know, the actual NPCs — they have been so thoroughly indoctrinated that they are just as likely to turn and bite any of their handlers for deviating from the social programming as they are the people they’ve been conditioned to hate.

And that’s what we’re seeing now, whenever these young “Justice Democrats” (AOC, Omar, Tlaib) openly criticize — even threaten — senior Dems.  When popular opposition to Nancy Pelosi reaches the point that her own people have to consider removing her.  When the blue check marks and their followers begin to turn on the Democratic leadership, claiming (even now) that they are either too centrist or not radical enough.

And I think the Dems are finally starting to realize what they’ve unleashed.  Have you seen Nancy Pelosi?  She looks terrible.  I imagine she must be an anxious mess, trying to simultaneously appease the traditional Democratic voter bloc and deal with Trump, all while fully aware that there are people within her own party — and a ravenous horde at its outskirts — that would like nothing more than to tear her to pieces.

It’s almost enough to make me feel sorry for her.

“Feminists”

0

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.

[FACEBOOK] FGM Part II / Feminist Ideology

0

(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.
