Although this is posted anonymously I have very little trouble believing every word of it.

Are all feminists on tumblr stupid? 11 Examples of missing the point by a mile.

There is a list of pure stupidity here that only warrants inspection because I have a vague feeling that most common or garden feminists would see no contradictions in those points.
So we have to spell them out.

1. You have no problem with the gender wage gap. But you hate having to pay for dates.

There ist no gender wage gap. That’s why its unfair that pying is always up to only one gender.

2. You insist that it’s a scientifically proven fact that men are stronger than women. But you complain about society believing that it’s worse for a man to hit a woman than for a woman to hit a man.

I do believe that it is worse to be stabbed with a knife than getting even a strong slap, yes.
And I do believe that there is something a-kilter when society thinks a woman is free to hit a man as much as she likes while a man deserves harshest punishment if he hits a woman.
Which is the case.
How about: Hitting people is bad no matter which gender the perpetrator?

3. You believe that the age of consent is unfair and that there’s nothing wrong with having sex with teenage girls. But when you find out that a teenage girl enjoys sex, you believe she’s the biggest slut in the world.

Do I?

I thought I believed a girl is a slut when she sleeps around and the age doesn’t enter into it.

4. You hate when a woman automatically assumes that a man is a douchebag before getting to know him. But when you like a woman who likes another man, you assume he’s a douchebag just because he’s not you.

Do I?

No I don’t. I do occasionally think that a woman is interested in a douchebag, when – in fact – he is a douchebag.

5. You believe that if women want equality, they should be drafted into the military. But you also believe that the military is not a place for women.

No, I don’t.
I do believe instead, that women’s complaint to have the short of the stick in society is bollocks and the military killing (practically) only men is a good proof of the bollocksness.

6. You hate when women assume that men are like wild animals. But you believe that a woman who doesn’t cover up and make herself invisible to men is just like someone wearing a meat suit around wild animals.

No, I only hate it when women and most especially feminists are too stupid to know the difference between “some”, “very, very few” and “all”.
As in “Very few men have problems controlling their impulses, making them animal-like in that regard, and people (women too) should be aware of this.” versus “All men are animals”.
The latter is nothing but sexist drivel.

7. You hate the fact that men are bullied for not conforming to their male gender roles. But when you find out that a man disagrees with your beliefs about women’s rights, your immediate response is to try to emasculate him by comparing him to a woman as an insult.

Er… No and No.
I have never seen bullying in my school (despite me being an outsider myself at that time) but I do think that bullying is only part of a social dynamic that is too complicated to be reduced to a simple “I hate bullying”.
And I have never called another man a “pussy” or a “girl”. I have been called something along those lines, though, and didn’t have a problem with it.

8. You hate when women assume that there are no nice guys. But you call yourself a nice guy and act like it’s a rare quality that should cause women to be all over you.

Oh dear, oh dear. How stupid are you?

I hate it when a woman claims that All She Wants is a nice guy… but NOT one of all those nice guys that she knows.
I hate it when women tell insecure men that being nice is the way to getting involved with the girl when this is demonstrably as wrong as you can get.
See the difference?
Probably not. 😦

9. You hate when women assume that men just want to get laid. But when you find out that a man is a feminist, you assume that he’s just doing it to get laid.

This is the one valid point. Assuming that a White Knight or a Pink Poodle has no motivation but getting laid is indeed stupid.

10. You hate when women make generalizations about all men. But when a woman calls you out for being sexist, you claim that all men think like you.

Do I?
No I don’t. And I have never heard anyone use this as an argument.
So what is he talking about?

11. You insist that women should be responsible for protecting themselves from being raped. But when they follow the one piece of advice that actually works, which is being aware of red flags, you complain about them assuming that all men are rapists.

No, I complain about them assuming that all men are rapist when they in fact assume that all men are rapists.
If on the other hand you define “being a man” as a red flag, you are full of … er … unprintable stuff.

My challenge: Does anyone know of a feminist page that actually tries to understand and then address MRM points? Instead of being as brain-dead as the straw men they raise?

Stories about relationships with partners who should be in therapy

erzaehlmirnix has a comic out today that shows how prejudices can turn into self-fulfilling prophecies.

This is quite obvious and true.

So why would I feel the need to comment?

Because her example is a borderline woman whose life is getting harder when people know about her borderline disorder.

This is undoubtably true. Any disorder sucks. Borderline is bound to suck big time. And it sucks even more when people treat you differently because they have some expectation as to what borderline means.
This is all understood.

On the other hand…

Go and read some stories of men who didn’t have prejudices against borderline and how their naive “love conquers all” attitude fucked their life up.

If you have to choose between the pre-judgment “I love this woman, she would never harm me.” and the pre-judgment “Borderline Disorder can become really dangerous. I should be on my guard when I have to do with her.” I would recommend the latter every time.

“There is NOTHING holding a woman back to become an Indie-Game developer” or Why feminism works

This is a female indie-game developer giving her 5 cent on Sarkeesian’s “tropes vs women”.

The video shows both: Why feminism sucks and why feminism works and has many followers.
In a nutshell: She – at first – found herself agreeing with Sarkeesian, because she recognized and acknowledged the described symptoms.
It took the ton of negative feedback that was heaped upon Sarkeesian to make her reflect if there was anything about “tropes vs women” that deserved criticism. And she found that practically all of Sarkeesian’s conclusions and accusations were for the trash.

And I think you can generalize that…

Women hear feminists describe situations:
– You have a lower paying job than most males you know
– You have to deal with sexual aggressiveness in a way that males don’t
(or alternatively for the ugly ones:)
– You are not appreciated as much as you’d like because of your looks.
– You have to find a compromise that males don’t in finding a balance between children and career

…and find these are all true.

I agree.

These are all situations that a man won’t be confronted with, at least not in the same way a woman is.

The problem is: Most women won’t do the next step, the step this game developer takes in her video.
“OK, feminism describes the status quo accurately as far as I am concerned. What about their theory how the status quo came to be? Does that hold water? Are their conclusions and accusations valid?”

My guess is that the cognitive process of practically all women who sympathise with feminism stopped at “as far as I am concerned”. (Which says a lot on its own 😉 )

Apparently it takes a “male” mind to question something that started out right.
A “female” mind apparently is satisfied with things that appear to be true. Or that feel true.

The difference between Truth and Truthiness.

Amy Schumer’s take on Beta orbiters

Found this here:

Sad, bitter, ever so slightly funny, very much accurate.

Privilege-Checking in action

If ever I have far too much time I should assemble a dictionary of offensive words. So that the PC-brigade just has to hold their tongue because there is nothing left they are allowed to say.

Refusing gender-roles in action

This should be every feminist’s favourite comic-strip:

I wonder if it is…
