Dear Feminuts: You Asked for This!
Dear Feminuts: You Asked for This!
A feminist writer named Natasha Pearlman recently penned an indignant essay in Britain’s Daily Mail, lamenting the death of common courtesy, thoughtfulness, and consideration. Men have lost sight of what it means to be a decent human being, she claims. Is this the flip side of equality?
The answer, dear Natasha, is: depends on how you define equality.
Equality of opportunity for both men and women is a good thing. Everyone deserves an equal chance to achieve and succeed, regardless of gender. But today’s army of Clitlers wants more and God forbid any man steps out of their irrational, outraged feminist dogma circle!
For years, the muff mafia has been telling us that chivalry is a threat to gender equality. For years feminists have been calling simple gestures such as opening doors for a woman or paying for dinner “benevolent sexism” – the attitude that women should be protected and provided for.
These chivalrous acts are superficially positive, but may entrench gender inequality by positioning women as weaker and less competent, says Pelin Gul at Iowa State University.
So they denigrate acts of kindness and respect toward women – the idea that women are to be cherished and loved – into some kind of clueless misogyny, and then they’re surprised when men simply stop treating them with respect and start acting like they’re one of the guys.
Natasha Pearlman recounts her recent experience with a guy who, in spite of her being quite obviously pregnant and pretty far along, shoved her out of his way, called her a “stupid fucking cow,” because she was holding her cell phone and wasn’t moving quickly enough for his needs.
I began calmly, explaining that it’s really not the ‘done’ thing to shove a pregnant woman and that, however much I might want to walk as fast as him, when you’re eight months pregnant, it’s physically impossible.
Also, I was holding my mobile in order to use it for contactless payment to get me through the Tube barriers.
Did he apologise? No. He shrugged, started up with another insult and, I’m embarrassed to say, I found myself shouting expletives after his rapidly retreating form.
Yes, the guy was a total jerk. Yes, there are a lot of them in the world.
But I’m not sure what feminists expected after years of demeaning men and ridiculing them for exercising basic
It’s called “blowback,” ladies (and I use that term loosely). You denigrate, disparage, and revile men long enough, and they will pretty much tell you to
eat a dick make a sammich. When you start seeing sexism in everyday acts of kindness… when men are too scared to offer you a seat when you’re pregnant because you may take that as a sign of your daily outrage (HE’S CALLING ME FAT!!), men will stop offering you seats, you fuckwitted sows!
Helping a woman carry heavy bags? You’re a sexist, because you’re assuming she’s not strong enough to do so herself.
Holding a door for a woman? That’s demeaning. She doesn’t need your help, according to feminist dogma.
Being polite and allowing a woman to go ahead of you in a turnstile? You’re treating women differently, you sexist, penis-wielding piece of garbage!
Recognizing that men and women are different – not better or worse, but different – that’s a firin’.
Merely mention the fact that the underrepresentation of female scientists at elite universities may stem, in part, from “innate” differences between men and women? Get the hell out of Harvard, you sexist prick! I don’t care how your words were twisted and misinterpreted!
Constant feminist indignation has transformed simple acts of kindness into onerous acts of male superiority.
Letting girls use the bathroom first isn’t a show of respect. It is, rather, the first brick in the super high pedestal that allows men to exalt women out of sight. A true show of respect is paying us equally for the same work, not 77 cents on the dollar, which is the current average. That’s the world I want my son to live in and I seriously doubt it will ever happen as long as women believe men should hold the door open for them.
I’m not even going to go into a separate rant about the feminist myth of the gender pay gap, because I don’t need my blood pressure to skyrocket at the sheer stupidity and malicious obfuscation of that claim! You can read about it here, if you so choose.
But this… Do you really expect men to have any kind of respect for you if you raise your son to be an omega male “feminist” turnip, who thinks chivalry is somehow offensive to women?
No, men aren’t going to offer you a seat if you’re pregnant for fear of being the target of your autistic screeching about fat shaming.
No, men aren’t going to treat you with deference because you happen to be lugging around your fuck trophy in your belly. You chose to spread ’em and get yourself knocked up? You will be treated just like anyone else. You are not special. Get it?
No, they’re not going to ask you out on a date, because they don’t want to be accused of sexual harassment.
No, they won’t pay for your dinner if you agree to go out with them, or hold the door open for you, because they don’t want to have to defend themselves against charges of sexism and misogyny.
They will treat you like they treat any other guy, because no one wants to carefully tread around your delicate Golden Snatch™ instead of having a good time and enjoying a laugh, a few drinks, and some intelligent conversation. No one needs that kind of pressure.
Ultimately, the possible corrosive outcome of your perpetual grumbling and vacuous accusations of sexism is just not worth it.
It may be common courtesy, but you have made it into something noxious and toxic. So what did you expect?
So yes, you perpetually outraged, grievance mongering vag-plugs, you did this. Live with it.
