Feminism 101: Beware of Toxic Sludge
Feminism 101: Beware of Toxic Sludge
Men are being told to check their “toxic masculinity” on college campuses.
Articles have since been penned about the insidious force in global politics and Brett Kavanaugh. The “insidious force”? Well, toxic masculinity, of course.
A swaggering machismo. A sense of male entitlement. But the instincts of the supreme court nominee stretch far beyond the partisan battles of Washington.- Jonathan Freedland, The Guardian
I kid you not.
What is “Toxic Masculinity”? Tolerance.org (cough, cough) has this definition on lock (SARC):
Toxic masculinity is a narrow and repressive description of manhood, designating manhood as defined by violence, sex, status and aggression. It’s the cultural ideal of manliness, where strength is everything while emotions are a weakness; where sex and brutality are yardsticks by which men are measured, while supposedly “feminine” traits—which can range from emotional vulnerability to simply not being hypersexual—are the means by which your status as “man” can be taken away.
We are in a dark age as humans. We demoralize men to the point of rompers and skinny jeans, all while we demoralize ourselves as women justifying that it is perfectly okay to snuff out a heartbeat of another individual living inside of us after a night of indiscretion with said “feminist” in skinny jeans. Our kids are seeing this and don’t even think for a minute that they are not paying attention. All of this talk of toxic masculinity but what about toxic feminism?
You know the kind that says it is wrong to say you are “feminine” but it’s okay to dress up as and use your “feminine” parts to promote an agenda? And let’s not talk about love and courtship. The toxic feminists of today will have you believe that it is wrong make yourself attractive to men. It is wrong to be attracted to men for being “manly”. It is wrong to be too thin and wrong to fat-shame yet the editors of such fashion magazines loaded with articles about Anarchy, Michelle Obama and ads from top designers feature nothing but size 0 models. As a result, young girls still starve themselves skinny. It is wrong to let a man hold the door or pick up a check and if he’s unattractive, he had better ask for “consent” before going in for a hug or else a woman may cry “assault”.
Toxic feminism goes beyond denouncing all that is feminine. It goes beyond a self-proclaimed feminist telling a woman that she doesn’t need a man to make her feel good. Toxic feminism stops at nothing. Including ruining the lives of other innocent women in its wake. Wives, mothers, daughters-all while attempting to promote an agenda. It ruins justice for other women who may someday be victims of assault. Toxic feminism kills off other women, it silences them. It discounts real claims, real credibility. It does not bridge the divide but it builds a bigger chasm. Toxic feminism is rude, it’s crude and classless. It has no shame. It is gratuitous politicizing masked as women being in the corner of the underdog. They’re not. For if one woman in their camp falls out-of-line or proves to be useless in the quest for power, she is attacked by the mob or simply cast aside to fend for herself. She is nothing but a means to an end. Toxic femininity is not a sisterhood. It continues to promote cutthroat, catty behavior in our workplace and social circles. Don’t believe me? Ask what being a feminist meant for Hillary Clinton and what she did to women who were assaulted by her very own husband.
We saw toxic feminism unfold itself first-hand last week. And, while I believe Christine Blasey Ford was assaulted, (not by Kavanaugh), it makes me so angry that she got up on the stand and somehow did not remember anything about where she was and when she was there. Her testimony, lacking key details, which I find suspicious coming from a sexual assault victim, was aired for millions to see. Why was I angry? Among those millions were Brett Kavanaugh’s wife and daughters. So, let’s get real. These women do not care about their “sisters” on this earth unless it means advancing their political agenda or more camera time for them. Yep, we see you in the background, Alyssa Milano. Your time in front of the camera is finished. Let it go. It’s over.
These women talk about rising above it all. The sad thing is that most of them do not realize that they are rolling around in the toxic sludge.
