Feminism: Hatred as ‘Social Justice’ (or Why @MostlyPregnant Won’t Apologize)

Posted on | May 31, 2016 | 23 Comments

“How do I say this sensitively. If you are a cis-het white guy your opinion is not as valuable and you should avoid speaking it or writing it.”
Drew Koshgarian, March 30, 2016

When someone called my attention to that quote, I recognized it as yet another reiteration of feminism as a synonym for “SHUT UP!”

This unseemly desire to silence others, to monopolize public discussion and tell people what to think by controlling what they are allowed to say, is one reason why I keep saying Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It. We can understand (as pure selfishness) Drew Koshgarian’s motive for asserting that, as a female, her opinion is more valuable than any male opinion. Yet she is also white, “cis” (i.e., not transgendered) and heterosexual — married to a white male, in fact — so why her insistence that, for example, a Latina lesbian’s opinion or a Taiwanese transvestite’s opinion is more valuable than her own husband’s opinion? This is all about the hierarchies of “oppression” and “privilege” according to the social justice formula with which young people are indoctrinated in 21st-century academia.

What is the pedagogical purpose of training young people to view the world through the warped lenses of a crypto-Marxist ideology, where all value is determined by the rigid categories of identity politics? Well, we know that university faculty (like the government bureaucrats who run the public school system) are overwhelmingly Democrat, so that there is a partisan payoff to propagating this radical “progressive” worldview. Certainly it is easy to explain why so many young people support the geriatric socialist Bernie Sanders, just as it explains why the bogus “Republican War on Women” narrative helped Barack Obama win re-election in 2012 with the widest “gender gap” ever recorded by Gallup.

The rhetoric of “social justice” becomes hate propaganda, a form of psychological warfare intended to demoralize and intimidate opponents. Theodore Dalrymple observed in a 2005 interview:

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

You see that political correctness means “people are forced to remain silent” — lest they be accused of racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. — while the Left promotes dishonest propaganda as “journalism,” “entertainment” and “education,” as well as politics. Within the progressive cult, people like Drew Koshgarian reflexively repeat the formulaic social-justice jargon of “privilege” vs. “oppression” and never think critically about the validity of their own worldview.

“I avoid speaking in situations where I am more privileged than who I’m with, [because] changing habits to share better takes efforts.”
Drew Koshgarian, May 30, 2016

What does this mean? Koshgarian explained “this is not hatred but an effort at redistribution of airspace and import,” and added: “It’s rare to hear a different viewpoint and they ought to be heard.” We are therefore supposed to imagine that Drew Koshgarian has a habit of mute silence in the presence of transgender people, gay people, Asians, Latinos and black people. However, when she encounters a heterosexual white man, Drew Koshgarian expects him to remain silent in her presence. Heterosexual white men have no human value, according to her social-justice mentality. Nothing can justify the “privileged” existence of heterosexual white men, whose opinions therefore are always wrong.

How is this “not hatred,” as Drew Koshgarian insists? Perhaps she would defend herself with the “diversity” rhetoric by which university administrators justify quotas in admissions and hiring. For decades, American universities have systematically discriminated against males, who are now only 43% of undergraduate enrollment. Women receive more than 70% of bachelor degrees in such fields as psychology, education and public administration, and women also get a majority of doctorate degrees, outnumbering males more than 2-to-1 in doctorates awarded in education and health sciences. No one in academia apologizes for this anti-male discrimination, however, and while universities claim to care about “diversity,” the political views of the faculty are a monolith of left-wing ideology. As Thomas Sowell once quipped: “The next time some academics tell you how important ‘diversity’ is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.” Academia has become so intolerant of dissent that university students organize violent disruptions to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus. In fact, after the president of DePaul University defended the right of College Republicans to invite Yiannopoulos to speak there, a sociology professor announced her resignation from DePaul, claiming that the president’s defense of “so-called free speech . . . is delusional.” The university president showed “a lack of moral courage in the disguise of intellectual objectivity and positional neutrality,” Professor Shu-Ju Ada Cheng declared:

The lack of position is a position, and your chosen position is to reinforce the existing inequalities. Shame on you. I am glad I will no longer be part of this institution and be complicit in the institutional practices that support our racist society.

If this is a common view among the faculty of our nation’s universities, are we surprised that young people like Drew Koshgarian believe the opinions  of white heterosexual males should never be heard in public? No, we are not surprised. Our education system is controlled by left-wing ideologues who indoctrinate youth into The Cult of Social Justice, a belief system that authorizes hatred toward those who can be categorized as “privileged,” who must be silenced in order to grant the “oppressed” hegemonic control of public discourse.

“In the hands of a skillful indoctrinator, the average student not only thinks what the indoctrinator wants him to think . . . but is altogether positive that he has arrived at his position by independent intellectual exertion. This man is outraged by the suggestion that he is the flesh-and-blood tribute to the success of his indoctrinators.”
William F. Buckley Jr., 1959

Do not expect an apology from Drew Koshgarian, because it is impossible for a social justice cult member to understand how she could be wrong.

    Can she be “lightly beaten” by her husband for saying that????

    Only if her husband is less privileged than her.

  • RS

    Someone should point out that there are places which subscribe to similar weighing of statements based upon the identity of the person making same: Sharia courts where women’s testimony are deemed to have less weight than males. Does she really wish to trot down that philosophical road?

  • Joe Joe

    So how do we fight this?

  • Joe Joe

    She is not going to listen to logic. She’s a cult member: she won’t begin to question until something awful happens to her.

    For example: I knew a white female professor with all of these SJW tendencies. She was married to a foreign national “of color” and was vicious in her hatred of white men and American society.

    Then this poor, oppressed, “othered” man of color divorced her. He had already taken care to transfer his considerable wealth to his native country where his well-to-do family were living. He also had taken a second wife in that native country.

    Then, he went to the American court, pleaded poverty, and demanded that a substantial part of his wife’s (part time) income be given to him as “community property.” He also demanded custody of their child, whom he wanted to bring with him to his native country to be raised by the new wife.

    This female professor was thoroughly stunned. Eventually, after some therapy, she began to realize that her ex-husband’s “oppressed” status was so much hooey. I haven’t seen her since, but I imagine she’s moved a few steps away from her extremism.

    Maybe.

    We retaliate with psychological warfare. Remember, the purpose is not to convince them of the virtues of Western civilization, but to make them feel stupid for having thought that anything else was as good. Best part is, we don’t have to lie.

  • Robert What?

    I don’t know what this “white cis male privilege” is supposed to be, but if I have it, they can pry it from my cold dead fingers.

  • RS

    I’ve know a few of those “personal is political” females, as well. They treat their “othered” spouses and friends as pets, not people, or as a possession to be displayed to the “oohs” and “aaahs” of their fellow travelers. Likewise, it’s never worked out well.

    We should applaud these sociology professors quitting in protest. I hope more follow suit.

    This will be the end retaliation. Men would rather live under sharia law than progressivism.

    I tried to view her original, but it appears that I’ve been blocked by someone I didn’t even know existed previously.

  • http://www.journal14.com/ Dana

    P’raps her husband doesn’t know about her twit tweets, and hate f(ornicates) her every night, and this is just her way of rebelling.

    Ever notice how these tweets and tumblrs all come from cute, ‘privileged’ little white girls?

    “cis-het white guy” is today’s N-word. Different slant, same racism & sexism.

  • http://www.journal14.com/ Dana

    Back in the sixties, ‘they’ tried to coin a word for whites that we were s’posed to find as offensive as nigger is to blacks, coming up with the word ‘honkie.’ (Or was that honkey? Or honky?) It didn’t work, of course, because there was no history behind it, and people just made fun of the attempt.

    But, in the spirit of honkiness, I think we ought to help with the terrible, terrible word to which we should be referred. We could try chettie, I guess, derivation obvious, but perhaps some of the other McCainiacs can come up with something better.

    C’mon, guys, I’m anxiously waiting to be offended!

  • Garrett Patterson

    Most likely she beats her husband. And berates him incessantly

  • Fail Burton

    Drew is a retard who seems to have no limits when it comes to racially and sexually humiliating herself at the behest of mentally ill lesbian supremacist doctrine. Worse, she thinks we’re so stupid that we’re going to allow hate speech to define itself as not being hate speech. What a moron. It is Drew who needs to shut up and get a life.

    I like to call people poltroons, scalliwags, and rapscallions, just because they’re too obscure for dumb hippies to know what they are.

  • Mike G.

    Well, whites have been called “Cracker”, but that is usually reserved for “rednecks” and does have some history behind it.
