"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Obviously a Satire

Posted on | December 25, 2013 | 37 Comments

When Donald Douglas posted this photo at American Power, I immediately recognized it as an ironic put-down of feminism:

Two key clues to the satirical intention:

  1. A poster in the background showing Austrian economists — Mises, Hayek, Rothbard, et al. — signals a libertarian/individualist orientation, directly contradicting the statist/collectivist radical egalitarian worldview of feminism; and
  2. Her breasts. A young woman with such a splendid rack would have no motive to adopt the victimhood mentality of feminism.

Yes, I suppose the severe gaze — the nerd-girl glasses, the emotionless of her expression — could mislead you into thinking that this young lady is a grim man-hating ideologue, but trust me: This photo is a clever joke, a statement against the casual promiscuity associated with contemporary “pro-sex feminism.”

    If that’s satire, it’s a good one; it’ll instantly shut off the hormone flows of any college age heterosexual male.

  • Bradoplata

    Lol, there is absolutely nothing wrong with her hormone flow wise.

    This isn’t a dig at you Jeff, but a large number of people on the site sure are picky about who they would have had sex with when they were in college.

    Humor is an oppressive construct of the patriarchy. Like Newton’s Laws it’s an integral part of the Rape Culture.

    You are channeling your inner feminist I see!

  • TC_LeatherPenguin

    “… the emotionless of her expression….” I don’t know; she got a little bit of the “Mona Lisa,” wry smile thing going on… and the rack, of course. I find most hard core feminists so endowed tend to strap ‘em down in solidarity with the Patriarchally oppressed, chesticly unenhanced members of the sisterhood.

  • G Joubert

    I find her just fine too.

    Holding up signs that say “I need feminism because…” is apparently a meme now. Here’s a less attractive one:

    This young Austrian economist however — I admire her irony as well as her fine tracts of land. I would like to subscribe to her newsletter.

  • Dana

    The glasses aren’t really nerd-girl specs; give some horn-rims or some BCGs, then maybe.

    She’s not pretty and she’s not but-ugly, but just sort of there.

    Me, I’m hot for Amy Farrah Fowler.

  • Julie Pascal

    She’s not smiling. (which is part of the pretend-to-be-for-feminism part) I bet she’s beautiful when she smiles.

  • RKae

    Pretty sure it’s heteronormative, too.

    Here’s how REAL feminists celebrate Christmas:
    Anything less than this is surrendering to the patriarchy!

  • JeffS

    Well, now, two points:

    1) I made my statement in third person. I did not refer to her, I specified “heterosexual male“. Male she clearly ain’t. But I’ve known wenches like her, and they caused many a set of balls to shrivel up whenever said wenches opened their mouths. So I stand by my statement, as written.

    2) More people than you might think were picky about who they had sex with in college. Just sayin’, is all.

  • ChandlersGhost

    Yum. Amy Farrah Fowler.

    I know. Dammit.

  • Adjoran

    She’s intentionally trying to look dull and humorless. It was probably hard to keep a straight face.

    But, hey, when I was in college, she would definitely have tripped the radar. She is actually a very attractive young woman. You just have to take the glasses off and put a smile on.

    So equality is being able to have empty thoughtless, loveless sex like hollow stupid men.
    And here I thought they were supposed to be better than men.
    As for a badge of horror, stupid is as stupid does.

  • gastorgrab

    I need feminism because ……… ummm …….

    Is there a time limit on this?

  • Finrod Felagund

    Enh, she should have tried that little stunt in a mosque. If she survived the experience she’d learn something.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Women need feminism like a fish needs a bicycle.

  • gastorgrab

    I’m actually impressed that she managed to contract an STD without the help of an “obsolete” male.

    Does ObamaCare cover soap and water under prescriptions drugs?

  • Eric D. Mertz

    Maybe its because I’m a nerd, but I would ask her to keep the glasses on.

  • ndmike12

    The presence of boobs disproves your assertion. :)

  • Steve Skubinna

    If I have an inner feminist how do I get her the hell out?

  • Steve Skubinna

    Yeah, well, duh.

    I was certainly picky about with whom I would have copulated while in college:
    1 – They had to be female (a very large population); and
    2- They had to say yes (a much smaller population).

  • Mike G.

    Dammit!, you beat me to it. I noticed the wry “Mona Lisa” smile, too.

    She is exactly the type of woman I tried to date in my brief college career…smart and sexy. Take her glasses off and she becomes a Tiger.

  • alanhenderson

    Badge of honor? Let’s hear it for dishonorable women. I’ve got friends in low places…

  • ThomasD

    Assuming her dentistry is not British I’ll bet a full smile from her lights up the entire room.

    Awesome locks too.

    I was picky in college too, but never hard to please.

  • richard mcenroe

    Those are ironic boobs.

  • Christy Waters

    Successful satire fools people who aren’t paying attention. I love this! #WarBYWomen

    Hetero is Greek for strange. The term heterosexual is a pejorative against normal people by the Gaystapo. Suggest shun it. Don’t fight on a field of their choosing. They are the Gaystapo. Assholes.
