Feminism Requires a Theory of the Moral and Intellectual Inferiority of Males

Posted on | March 31, 2015 | 33 Comments

If women are systematically oppressed by males, as feminist theory insists, the perpetrators and beneficiaries of this oppression — i.e., males — must be selfish and cruel. Quod erat demonstrandum.

After my previously described encounter with a Wellesley graduate, I continued my tour of the online lunatic asylum that is Feminist Tumblr, and came across this 171-word anti-male rant:

Ladies, here is a tip from me to you, some information that is going to set you free: men are never going to take you seriously. Men are conditioned from day one to see you as less than, to think you’re a joke, you’re weak, you’re stupid, you’re irrational, and you’re deficient. Most men never even attempt to unlearn that conditioning, let alone actually manage to do it. The second you stop shaping your life and your choices and your wants and yourself around how best to make men take you seriously is the second you can start actually living. Don’t play their shell-game. Don’t waste your energy or your brain space trying to figure out how to calibrate your actions to get the best reaction out of them. Stop doing everything you can to make your back as flat as possible so they have a smooth trip walking all over you. Demand your space, stop apologizing and accommodating, and let them figure out how the f–k to deal with it.

You might want to bookmark that one. It could come in handy the next time someone tells you that feminism isn’t about hating men.

    Amazing how they spend all their time in houses or offices or universities built by men, typing away on their computers or smartphones (invented by men), using electricity (discovered, harnessed, and produced by men), and the internet (invented by men) about how oppressed they are… by men.

    And that’s when they can tear themselves away from eating food that was planted and harvested and shipped by men. Or driving in their cars – created by men and using fuel extracted and refined by men – to drive to shopping malls built by men to buy consumer goodies designed by men in factories men built. Usually paying with money they were given by their daddy, husband, or boyfriend.

    It sure is tough to be a white American woman in this terrifyingly male dominated world.

    You and your so-called “facts”! HATER!

  • Adobe_Walls

    Why on earth would we want to unlearn our conditioning? It’s just like our demons they’re ours.

  • Alan Alda

    Males are to Feminists as Jews are to Nazis

  • RS

    A Wellesley graduate who is not taken seriously? Really?

    Once again, these people describe a purported reality which I have never experienced in my life. It’s as if these people are using a wormhole to signal us from the past. They’re trapped in an episode of Mad Men.

    “Men are never going to take you seriously.” Any man that takes me seriously is going to have a hard time getting me to take him seriously. Dicipher that truth, and run the risk of realizing what might actually make you happy in this life, females. You have been warned.

    I can never wrap my head around someone that stupid. It reads more like a page ripped from her own diary than any insight into all women in America. That’s another Pfizer customer as sure as I’m sitting here.

  • Fail Burton

    They’re oppressed by the realization of their own failure to rise to unrealistic expectations. You either build bridges and form armies or you don’t. There are no millennial excuse notes from teacher.

  • RS

    Pfizer makes Viagra.

    : )

  • Zohydro

    And Pristiq! For that Feminine Mystique…

    I denounce myself.

    “Men are conditioned from day one to see you as less than… .”

    I’m concerned about this ‘day one’ business. Day one typically involves a female. As does day two… . So, mothers are conditioning their sons to see females as inferior.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Great news, a new feminist lingerie company.

  • Daniel Freeman

    For when you want to feel somewhat pretty, but not enough for anyone to bother objectifying you!

  • Eidolon

    But think how much better all those things would be if men hadn’t stopped women from inventing them through their systematic oppression!

  • Fail Burton

    Neon Mound would be better. Just imagine a glow-in-the-dark lighthouse of love-panties steering you to that spot.

  • Fail Burton

    Well whoever makes prozac and klonopin should thank Andrea Dworkin. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was funded by a pharmaceutical.

  • Steve Skubinna

    That piece reeks of self loathing. And she blames “men” for her twisted pathologies.

  • Critical Eye

    Sadly, you can flip the gender, and get an equally accurate picture of the modern independent woman:

    Men, here is a tip from me to you, some information that is going to set you free: Women are never going to take you seriously. Women are conditioned from day one to see you as less than, to think you’re a joke, you’re weak, you’re stupid, you’re irrational, and you’re deficient.

  • Quartermaster

    3rd Wave Feminism is founded on hatred of the entire male sex, and it pollutes the entire thing through and through.

  • Quartermaster

    Making your back flat will cause pain. Learned that from my physical therapist 20 years ago.
    I never did apologize for being a man, and I’m not about to start now. The feminazis can just figure out things on their own.

  • The original Mr. X

    That’s certainly an accurate description of most feminists.

  • The original Mr. X

    If I have difficulty taking women seriously because all the feminist authors I read are full of crap, whose fault is that?

  • Wraith

    Ladies, here is a tip from me to you, some information that is going to
    set you free: men are never going to take you seriously. Men are
    conditioned from day one to see you as less than, to think you’re a
    joke, you’re weak, you’re stupid, you’re irrational, and you’re
    deficient.

    You say it’s conditioning…I say it’s simple observation of feminists. 😉

  • Daniel Freeman

    You say it’s conditioning…I say it’s simple observation of feminists. 😉

    I get that you’re making a joke, but you’re also making a huge tactical error. Their biggest socio-poltical weapon is to falsely conflate women with feminists, and you just reinforced that.

  • Daniel Freeman

    It isn’t quite enough to just flip the sexes, at least for the first few sentences. Let me try to fix it:

    Men, here is a tip from me to you, some information that is going to set you free: Women want to take you seriously, but only if you’re respectable. Women are conditioned from day one to test whether you’re less than, you’re a joke, you’re weak, you’re stupid, you’re irrational, or you’re deficient. Most women never even attempt to unlearn that conditioning…

    The rest remains unchanged.

  • theoldsargesays

    Makes about as much sense as the Republican ‘War on Women ” don’t it?
    A bunch of conservative men who hate their mothers, sisters, grandmothers, etc…perfectly logical to think that we were conditioned to this by our mothers.

  • theoldsargesays

    Hello!
    How about a trigger warning next time please?

  • theoldsargesays

    THAT.

  • theoldsargesays

    I just scrolled back up page to look at the blog and…..please trigger warning next time?
    (Yes I neglected to click the “hide” button the first time past)

  • theoldsargesays

    Maybe she had two Dad’s?

  • Steve Skubinna

    I’m guessing that she was raised by weasels in the wild.

  • Daniel Freeman

    Oh, hey! I didn’t know you could do that! A nice little collapse button, right there when you moveover, and I never even noticed.
