Off the deep end

Feminism continues to roll towards its inevitable end as farce. It's now actually too insane for NPR and The Nation:
Last year, I found myself listening to an episode of NPR’s “Tell Me More,” where an assembled group of activists and writers discussed whether the Internet was ruining feminism. The discussion was occasioned by an article in The Nation, “Feminism’s Toxic Twitter Wars,” by Michelle Goldberg. Goldberg’s credentials as a left-leaning feminist weren’t previously in dispute, so the article’s thesis was genuinely shocking: With easy anonymity and the near instantaneous ability to whip up social media mobs, the Internet was pushing feminists to insufferable levels of stridency and infighting. When The Nation, a magazine that for most of its storied history has regarded Communism an unalloyed force for good, denigrates the current state of feminism as “Maoist hazing,” we are truly through the looking glass.

As a measure of how insane things have gotten, the NPR panel discussed one of the article’s more telling anecdotes. Actress Martha Plimpton, star of the Fox sitcom “Raising Hope,” fancies herself such a serious feminist, insofar as serious feminist means incorporating a performance of Lennon and Oko’s “Woman is the N–ger of the World” into her one-woman show at the Lincoln Center. Plimpton is also co-founder of an abortion-rights charity, “A Is For,” which had the misfortune of titling a recent fundraiser “A Night of a Thousand Vaginas.”
Forget for a moment the dumbfounding irony of casting aspersions on a ‘reproductive justice’ fundraiser because it’s ‘exclusionary and harmful’ to deny anyone the womanly joys of terminating the life of an unborn child.

For this thoughtcrime, Plimpton immediately came under attack online and boycotts were threatened because the event wasn’t inclusive enough because of “constant genital policing” that offends transsexual men.
This should serve as a warning to all equalitarians. Insist on believing that 2+2=5, and it won't be long before you start rolling your eyes and shrieking about how anyone who denies that the correct answer to 37 divided by 126 is purple and is guilty of microaggressive rape.

You may not see how it does anyone any harm to pretend that everyone is equal when you know they're not, but that's just the first step to madness. And sometimes, all it takes is a single step to go off the deep end and into the depths.

Bonus points: see if you can identify the socio-sexual rank of the author, on the basis of this quote:
"Look, maybe this is me waving my male privilege all over the place, but there’s only one word for a woman who can simultaneously defend feminine virtue, upset the patriarchy, and clean out the Augean stables of third-wave feminism with a single d–k joke: Hawt. (Don’t worry, Flanagan need not worry about my intentions. It turns out I’m already married to a very attractive female journalist with balls bigger than mine. I guess I have a type?)"

You cant be feminine and dominant. It leads to an absurd monstrosity. Womens essence is femininine. They can only dominate through their association with a dominant man, one reason for their latching on to high status men. His accomplishments become hers, and his view must be her lense in order for her behavior to be ordered. Anything else leads to societal destruction and short haircuts.

When did it become acceptable to punctuate a statement with a question mark?

"...with balls bigger than mine."

Let that sink in.

What kind of creature writes such a thing?

Observing the unraveling of feminism via the ascendency of transsexual men reminds me of having watched Pulp Fiction for the very first time. Though the architect of this madness' brilliance far exceeds that of Tarantino.

This is even more disturbing than the rest of the article.

While he does have a point about Crista Flanagan (I assume he is referring to her)......I swear, in a way, even Omegas are superior to Gamma males. When I read about Omegas, I feel pity or compassion. When I encounter Gammas, I want to beat them into submission.

"You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!"

Which is what they want. Be sure to call them names while you do it.

"Having a vagina offends transexual men." Um.... too bad?

This shit is bananas. Our culture is done for.

Earl Thomas said...

I'd give the man the delusional title.

Now what if he instead said this:

'but there’s only one word for a woman who can simultaneously defend feminine virtue, upset the patriarchy, and clean out the Augean stables of third-wave feminism with a single d–k joke: Delusional'

Laguna Beach Fogey said...

Exactly.

Tommy Hass said...

"Don’t worry, Flanagan need not worry about my intentions."

This is actually the most offensive line.

"Flanagan need not worry that I wish to inject my tepid seed in her womb." Well thank God for that. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

"Feminism is Dying" is going to be my new catch phrase with my three daughters. All of them wore skirts today (school's Valentine's Day celebration) and looked great. I look for and use catch phrases because it's an emotional tool, not logical. It's what I see girls react to. I have a boy to be logical with.

AmyJ said...

Scalzi immediately came to mind. "Scalzi" needs to be a rank unto itself, really.

I could identify the socio-sexual rank of the author based just on the question.

Author's comment reminds me of a line from "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Background: It's 1870's Appalachia. Adam is a rough backwoodsman who lives with his six brothers. Adam gets married to Milly, who immediately starts training the younger six to be gentlemen.

During a barn raising competition, the other teams are cheating by "accidentally" assaulting the brothers (dropping things, knocking over ladders, etc) and they won't fight back because of Milly's training. Then Adam sees what's going on and yells some sense into the younger six:

Adam - "He didn't drop that hammer. He threw it. I saw him!"
Little bro #1 - "We don't want no fights."
Little bro #2 - "We promised Milly. We're gonna keep it calm. So don't start anything. Come on. We're way behind now."
Adam - "She's made you into a bunch of mamma's boys. They're out to murder you, and what do you do? Apologize for living. You're a disgrace to the Pontipee name. You're a bunch of lily-livered, chicken-hearted lickspittles. Serves you right. I hope they break your necks."

After this the brothers finally decide to fight back, in very entertaining fashion.

Anyway, I bring it up because of that one short sentence: "Apologize for living". That's exactly what a gamma male does all the time. That pathetic self flagellating quote at the bottom is just him reflexively apologizing for the fact of his wretched existence. Although, with all the irrational anti-male drivel their type reliably produces, I think the rest of us deserve an apology.

It "was" a good article; however, it was ruined after noting his wife has balls. This contradicts his observation that transexual men should not be counted as women with vaginas. Despite how feminism went off in the deep end, political correctness still has a way to go.

@ Sarah's Daughter. "We are all Transgender now"

JCclimber said...

Gamma minus. If his wife is actually attractive, I wonder how many trips around the carousel she had to take before she would resign herself to settle for such a lickspittle.

CarpeOro said...

"Hawt". Perhaps I am getting old and disconnected from pop culture, but last I recall that was only used by girls. But then, since he appears to be married to some transgendered induhvidial, I guess he isn't all there anyway. Maybe they plan on getting sex changes together so they can be a lesbian couple.

Well, Scalzi did boast about how his daughter lifts more than he can. So I'll second YIH: JOHN SCALZI

)......I swear, in a way, even Omegas are superior to Gamma males. When I read about Omegas, I feel pity or compassion. When I encounter Gammas, I want to beat them into submission.
@Tommy Hass
A not uncommon sentiment. Same reason why emos got beat up a lot, when they were in vogue.

"anyone who denies that the correct answer to 37 divided by 126 is purple"

That was hilarious.

@Ron
Actually, Vox's answer was "purple and". Great typo... very Dada.

Gamma minus. If his wife is actually attractive, I wonder how many trips around the carousel she had to take before she would resign herself to settle for such a lickspittle.
@JCclimber
It's not uncommon for a low-value male to call his wife "beautiful" whatever her appearance. I've seen it all my life: a man would keep referring to his wife as "beautiful" or "gorgeous" (along with "darling" and "wonderful", of course), then when I actually saw the wife, I'd think, "Uh, dude, are you f*cking blind?"

Earl Thomas said...

'Gamma minus. If his wife is actually attractive, I wonder how many trips around the carousel she had to take before she would resign herself to settle for such a lickspittle.'

Judge for yourself.

Corv,
I think husbands should be given an allowance for "love goggles." Wives could've been far prettier earlier in life. As they age, husband's don't really notice the decline.

I didn't with my ex. Years removed, I now see her as she really is. Not unattractive, but she looks her age. When we were married, I would tell people that she looks 15 years younger than her real age. I truly believed it.

On Topic:
His cringe-inducing bit aside, he really does illustrate the knots modern feminists tie themselves into and the great spectator sport it can be watching them feast on each other's privilege.

Near my office there's a chubby chick who dresses and styles her hair like a teenage boy. Does that count as trans? Or must she go through with the procedure?

“You may not see how it does anyone any harm to pretend that everyone is equal when you know they're not, but that's just the first step to madness. And sometimes, all it takes is a single step to go off the deep end and into the depths.”

To me, the above is the money quote, because it sums up the fundamental problem of egalitarianism. Men and women aren’t equal and never ever will be, no matter how much some might wish it. There are no egalitarian relationships. And there are most certainly no egalitarian marriages. And there never, ever will be. And trying to create egalitarian relationships results in their advocates twisting themselves into pretzels and ultimately, into the abyss.

slarrow said...

Am I the only one who read the article and thought that Vox's pull quote was tongue-in-cheek? I've read Mark Hemingway (and his wife Mollie) before, and they're not the types to take the idea of patriarchy or male privilege all that seriously. Heck, one of the subheads to Mark's cited article about the feminists' in-fighting is, "You Do Realize You’re All Crazy".

Granted, it's a distressingly good imitation, and their pictures don't show a glamorous power couple, but I think folks here have put the author and his wife in the wrong camp here.

Tim said...

Being being personally acquainted with the Hemingways, the insinuation that they are SJWs (LOL!) did not immediately register. They attend what might be the most conservative Lutheran parish in a 100 mile radius and are outspokenly on our side on every issue you can think of. Yes, the pull quote was tongue-in-cheek. If Mark is a gamma (lol), he certainly scored with Mollie. Watch the friendly fire, please?

Corvinus said...

@Tim

So he's another Churchian Gamma. Makes sense.

Even if we do presume for the sake of argument that he's being sarcastic about "male privilege", sucking up to your wife by figuratively cutting your own nuts off still marks him as having a great big Γ tattoo'd on his forehead.

Tim said...

Nope, there's no "we". And there's no "presumption".

If you can't see the seething contempt throughout the entire article, you probably won't be bothered to verify the character of his wife and thus realize how laughable the idea of him "sucking up to her" is, let alone the idea of him being a gamma.

The tendency to shoot first and ask questions later is a Marxist one, so you ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Tim said...

That quote at the end made me feel ill. This isn't exaggeration for effect or poetic licence.

Here's an article by his wife. Starting at "Porn for the Lonely Women of Today" she actually makes some sense:
