Feminist @SuzannahWeiss Hates All Men, So Why Would She Ever Date a Man?

Posted on | August 2, 2016 | 65 Comments


“Never Take Advice From Feminists” is a smart rule. Unless your goal in life is to become a Crazy Cat Lady, there’s not much expertise to be had from feminists, so why would anyone listen to Suzannah Weiss?

12 Signs Your Date Is Sexist —
Because ‘You’re Not Like Most Girls’
Is Not A Compliment

That’s the headline on a column Suzannah Weiss published in April, and it’s full of the “anecdote-as-evidence” method of feminist argument:

Anyone who has been simultaneously feminist and single knows that the struggle is real. It’s hard to spot sexists when you’re dating. . . .
A guy I was dating once . . .
I once met a guy on OKCupid . . .
I once had a date . . .

The problem with this is, how do we know it’s true? Suzannah Weiss is a feminist and all feminists are liars. Who are these guys? Do we have their names? Could we contact them to verify what Suzannah Weiss says about them? Or are they fictional characters like “Haven Monahan”?

Why should we believe that Suzannah Weiss has ever dated men at all? Is there any actual evidence of these alleged dates? Has any man ever stepped forward to admit he dated Suzannah Weiss? Of course not.

Everything Suzannah Weiss tells us about her sex life is unverified — there are no documents, no witnesses, no names or dates we can check — and yet she expects to be regarded as an expert authority on the subject.

All of this supposedly expert advice is coming from a 20-something who only graduated from college two years ago and, I repeat, where is the evidence that she has any experiential basis for offering this advice? Have we seen any affidavits from her ex-boyfriends that would support the idea she knows what she’s talking about? Doesn’t the absolute silence of Suzannah Weiss’s (alleged) sexual partners seem somewhat suspicious? Here she is, constantly talk talk talking about sex sex sex, and not a single guy has ever gone on record to admit having sex with her?

Ah, but she’s got a surefire way to weed out sexists:

If you want to know . . . if your date is a feminist, try bringing up current events that relate to women’s issues (a distaste for Donald Trump is a good sign; a distaste for Planned Parenthood is not) or describing your own feminism and seeing how they react.
Sometimes you’ve got to kiss a few sexist frogs before you find a feminist prince, but they’re out there.


Who is this “feminist prince” that Suzannah Weiss assures us is “out there”? All she would have to do is to name one guy she’s dated, and we could contact him to verify her claims to sexual expertise. Instead, what we have is nothing but her word for this and, considering that she writes for the notorious anti-male hate site Everyday Feminism, I am highly dubious of Suzannah Weiss’s claim that she has ever dated any men at all.

    Congratulations to you, ma’am. Bad break for Ms. Weiss.

  • Steve Skubinna

    Probably. Very few more than once.

  • Jeanette Victoria ?????????

    I just found him I don’t want him.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Then there’s this.

  • Steve Skubinna

    So Weiss gets a second chance then.

    Right, off to eBay or Craigslist you go!

  • Rhino ?

    Honor killings just aren’t that bad an idea.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Nah just a nitwit.

  • Quartermaster

    Hey!!! I was saving that meme for just this time and you went and stole it.

  • Quartermaster

    Saw that too. Some have taken to shaving arm pits, but the “German pit” still seems to be a fact of life.

  • DeadMessenger

    Good one!

  • texlovera

    Holy crap. Bullseye on the first shot.

  • Daniel Freeman

    Damn. My Mulder-esque riff was only half-joking. I thought it would be pretty cool if her date turned out to be both a real feminist and a real man, and therefore a real alien from outer space (or another dimension).

    Normally an active imagination is a good thing, but when you start believing your own fiction, don’t expect a happy ending.
