Feminism as group strategy, Charles Jansen.
So far feminism can be defined by two essential aspects: a philosophy, mostly rooted in Marxism and postmodernism; and a group strategy. Both aspects are intertwined, which makes feminism difficult to explain in a plain, analytic, non-manipulative way. The sentence “feminism is the radical idea that women are human beings” doesn’t explain anything but mostly shocks the hearer and compels him to believe in key assumptions that remain implicit. Feminist philosophy is never explained in a systematic way. When one of its parts is explained, the explanation usually takes for granted the other key assumptions, which means that feminism ultimately rests on a logical circle. However, this logical defect doesn’t prevent it from being extremely efficient at stirring up resentment against men, especially Whites. A regular girl who starts absorbing feminist philosophy starts to perceive many masculine acts as morally wrong, going so far as equating unwanted male attention to rape and battery. By creating perceptions of “oppression” or undeserved “male privilege” or “White privilege,” feminist philosophy creates resentment; by upholding so-called “equality” and “progress”, it gives an aim, a telos, as well as a strong motivation to act against the perceived injustices.
While the feminist worldview may appear silly and forced, particularly since it uses sophistry and groundless accusations to discard evidence-based science, it has grown up with incredible success, to the point of determining–along with other anti-White stuff–what deserves respect or scorn. Asking for “tolerance,” then pretending to care about “justice” and finally shutting up any different voice by calling to “consensus”–i.e. think and talk within our framework or go die while we make history–such is the infamous pattern that leads to our present-day situation.
On one hand, feminism is serious because of its domination in the academics and the mainstream media. It is serious because mastering public respectability implies influence over a huge crowd. As Gamergate has shown, serious feminists organize to steer the media and organize fluxes of money even in fields like gaming that were previously safe. In academia, it will become harder and harder to simply be a White guy. “Affirmative action” policies will get you more and more excluded from public events while your decent teachers will have to kneel to feminist networks. One can recognize a mortal enemy in the person or group who says “change” or “progress” to mean our dispossession. The harder to swallow part is when you evolve within an academic environment: money here is limited, you are depending on the system, and while the cake is shrinking, the larger parts go to influence networks.

Um artigo que contém mimos como este “feminism is about producing self-righteous, entitled, highly emotional sluts who will be better at office politics than anything else.” ou este “many girls recognize the built-in differences between men and women, don’t see themselves as a class of harmless victims, nor do they want a war against men. They admit daydreaming about having children or caring for babies. Femininity is not dead because it is primarily built in. Most of all, they enjoy submitting in bed.” deixa um pouco a desejar, confesso…
Deixa um pouco a desejar citar frases soltas fora do contexto. Ainda assim, as referidas frases continuam a fazer sentido, embora possam escandalizar os leitores mais sensíveis. E particularmente o mimo: “Most of all, they enjoy submitting in bed”. Não é mentira nenhuma. Basta lembrar um recente sucesso nas salas de cinema (que eu nem menciono explicitamente porque não faço publicidade à mediocridade).
Deve ser a minha sensibilidade então. Mas parece-me curioso um debate em que uma das partes é brindada com um adjectivo como “sluts”. Estou a descontextualizar? Também não sei qual o contexto académico do autor, mas devo ter sido um abençoado por nunca ter ficado tempo suficiente em determinado ambiente, para me aperceber deste “take over” generalizado por parte das hordas feministas. Finalmente, também acho curioso que o episódio do Gamergate seja usado como argumento para mostrar o que aparenta ser o ” poder”do movimento, num meio até agora “seguro”? Realmente, estamos a ficar sem portos de abrigo…
Desculpem ser fora do tema, sabem da ameaça de morte ao Balbino Caldeira?
Muito bom, Daniela.
