Breaking the chains, winning the games, and saving Western Civilization.
Interviewer:"Do you understand why people might find that insulting?"Greer: "I don't care!"The proper response.
Even when feminists disagree in their own camp, there is always one thing they can agree on, and it is that the fault lies with men. I had no idea misogyny was the reason Bruce Jenner is being viewed as a superior woman, hahaha. Though she is right, it is misogyny since we know the biggest haters of women are radical feminists.Pity, Greer strikes me as a feminist who might...and I do hedge here....might have similar reasoning faculties to the lovely though misdirected Camile Paglia. The older feminists were annoying to be sure, but you could have a decent conversation with them. The new cohort of feminists are just bat-shit insane.
99.9% (perhaps higher) of people are XX or XY chromosome in their DNA. That, and only that is the determination of gender. It matters not what one thinks, feels or what surgeries and drugs one takes. You cannot alter your DNA, at least at this point in science. As the Lady said, call yourself whatever you want...fine. But that does not make it so. We live in a world where even the most irrefutable facts don't matter. Fools think they create their own reality. Perhaps they should try it with gravity.
We need to ditch the word and concept of gender. Most of the time, people are talking about a person's sex, not their gender, anyway.
The older feminists were annoying to be sure, but you could have a decent conversation with them. The new cohort of feminists are just bat-shit insane.Here's a theory: the older feminists were mostly mannish women, lesbian or asexual, who were honest in their dislike for or disinterest in men. Having more masculine traits in general than other women, they also had a trace of men's reasoning ability.Modern, sex-positive feminists, in contrast, are just Girls Gone Wild, the real-life version. They want to sleep with lots of men, use their stuff, beat them up, and keep them paying for everything, all at once. Not being mannish like the older ones, they have, if anything, less reasoning ability than normal women.
I'm old enough to remember when lesbians were nice people
This all reminds me of the ways revolutions devolve into competing factions, at odds over what outsiders consider minutia. This is like Bolsheviks vs. Mensheviks 1917, or the Trotsky/Lenin divide. Let them go crazy on each other. They have little to offer mankind.
@DSeidelThere are also rare genetic disorders that might blur the line to some extent. But still, the intersex condition is not transgenderism.
My Feelings! My feelngs! Stop the hurt! Stop the hurt!The batshit goes all the way to the bone!"So you believe in free speech? Really.""No. . ."
I think that is a decent theory Cail, although there were crazies even during their time. They just had a united front. Now that they have won and broken the culture, they fight over the spoils and they don't know where to direct their energy. Your soldiers during war and credible threats are usually made of tougher stuff than those trained during peace and prosperity.
...thus the statement 99.9%. Point being there's no such thing as changing the gender of a person. These are deluded people who can prove themselves by refusing to cooperate with gravity.
"The new cohort of feminists are just bat-shit insane."No, they're just drunk with illegitimate and, for now, unlimited power. The dykes are still in the lead, with the more feminine in thrall to that power, as is their nature.Durandel is right.
Enjoy the freedom to say cats are not elephants while you still legally can.
A new enemy must always be found by those who make the control of others their primary life objective.
I thought we were all on board that Caitlyn Jenner is an amazing beautiful woman who had the exquisite bravery of a beautiful butterfly flying against the wind. And then this shit flies out of people’s mouths!
Heretics are far more violently dispatched than unbelievers are.
Heh. Two of the core tenants of feminism are that women trying to behave like men can compete with men, and that special allowances must be made for such women until prejudices are someday set aside. So it's ironic to hear Ms. Greer argue from her (SJW-perceived) prejudice that a man trying to behave like a woman should not receive recognition above natural-born women. She speaks the truth, but only as a footnote to a life of spreading lies.
I know way too many of the Caitlin types, and they are outraged when the ones like Greer not only don't accept them, they think Jenner et al are creepy. All one can do is grab the popcorn and root for casualties. The thing is, one could sit down with Greer and disagree, politely. Get a couple of drinks in her and she's fun. But the ones like Jenner, geez you just have to stay far, far away.
In case some of you aren't aware there has been, for some years now, a rift in the left between trans folks and the dykes that comprise core fem.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBUNdv2sVzY
This is like a mother who looks at the bad behavior of her children and completely absolves herself of responsibility for their behavior. Feminists truly believe they are God's gift to Jesus.
Mr. Peak, I was once told very recently that a feminist died and became a saint before the Lord. I smiled and said, "here is another drink dear."
Not sure where this desiccated old prune gets the wind to trumpet her self-loathing to the world. Probably all that undigested man meat rotting in her twisted gut. She and her fellow third-wavers were perhaps the most effective conduit for thought policing from the nether world into this one, proving that feminism is one of the most corrosive social pathologies we know. That she would be thrown under the bus and savaged by the neutered spawn of her coven proves it's degenerative. 'The personal is political' is a pox on all the chapter houses.
Did she read your book? It really sounds like she did. We should gift her it.
Unknown, Greer was a second-waver and "the personal is political" was a second-wave slogan.
Violet Black, sifting through horseshit for oats is always a hit and miss affair.
Unknown,Wise words. I don't pretend to understand them in this context. I'm just a feminist trying to help out an mra in the spirit of...mutual understanding? or something.
