‘Feminist Dogma’

Posted on | February 19, 2014 | 25 Comments

The claim by radical feminists that heterosexuality is a form of oppression imposed on women by male violence — “PIV is always rape, OK?” — has shocked many people who don’t pay attention to trends among intellectuals in academia. Yet this extreme anti-male view has been “mainstream” among feminists for many years:

The [1998] Houghton Mifflin Reader’s Companion to U.S. Women’s History contains an entry by E. Kay Trimberger on “Heterosexuality,” which . . . summarizes feminist dogma unproblematically:

Sexuality is not private, but is political and related to power. “Compulsive heterosexuality” is part of a power structure benefiting heterosexual males at the expense of women and homosexuals. This inequity is justified by an ideology that sees heterosexuality as natural, universal, and biologically necessary, and homosexuality as the opposite. The system also is reinforced by legal sanctions and violence against women (rape, battering, incest, and murder) and against lesbians, gays and transgendered persons (verbal harassment, physical assault, and murder).

So, “heteronormativity” is imposed by “a power structure” and a “system” whose means of enforcement are rape, assault and murder. Feminism teaches women that the only way they can escape the patriarchy’s violent oppression is to become lesbians.

If you’re not a lesbian feminist, you are pro-rape and pro-murder.

Quod erat demonstrandum.

    How do these people expect to be able to perpetuate the species? How do these people expect to be able to raise up any new feminists even?

    It’s not about perpetuating the species. It’s not even about enjoying the sex.

    It’s about power. Specifically you have to give up your stuff so they can have their stuff. And yes, you have to sacrifice. That’s how they prove themselves.

    Of course if they could earn the power, it wouldn’t cost your freedom.

    What we have heah is a failure to communicate.

    While this is undeniably a “mainstream feminist” view among academics, we must remember that the general public has no clue how radical academia has become, and the “gender studies” crowd in particular. If you speak to any average adult woman outside the ivory towers of the academy and she claims to be “a feminist,” she is most decidedly NOT endorsing the radical views.

    To her, she is calling for equal pay for equal work, equal rights, maybe some liberal social programs like government child care at most. She isn’t anti-male, doesn’t think of herself OR of feminism as anti-male, and certainly doesn’t think of PIV as “rape” at all. In fact, the vast majority of (non-academic or activist) women who call themselves “feminists” either have husbands and children or want to one day.

    Of course, the same holds true for most “environmentalists” and other causes dominated by the left. The hoi polloi have no idea what the ringleaders are up to. They are in the dark intentionally. If the public truly had any idea what the professoriat was plotting, every university would have been burned to the ground decades ago.

    It’s not fair to ascribe the views of the purists and radicals to the average woman who professes feminism, any more that it is fair to tar you with the views of the most extreme radical who calls himself a conservative from Alabama.

    The central “insight” of feminism is a simple reversal of cause and effect:
    – Most people are heterosexual. This fact is then used to justify the primacy of heterosexual behavior/relationships.
    – Feminists start from the political perspective; as if the plan all along was to subjugate other forms of sexuality. This is then used to “justify” heterosexuality.

    The truth is, heterosexuality requires no justification. That’s just the way things are.

    “Sexuality is not private, but is political and related to power.” This is another example of confusing markers for the thing itself. Sexuality is something people care about greatly, and from a demographic perspective is incredibly important to the survival of a society. This makes it ripe for exploitation as a political football, but sexuality was not designed for that purpose.

    Feminists don’t want to help women; they want to help themselves TO women.

    What do the fathers of these women think of their writings?
    What do these women think of their fathers? Are they all nothing but rapists?
    What do these women think of their brothers? Their uncles? Their grandfathers? Nothing but rapists?
    Are there no positive male role models in these women’s lives?

    Haven’t you ever seen the Matrix? Imagine if you will…

    Envision a world where men are raised in pods where they can be safely restrained and controlled while their life giving fluids are harvested on demand.

    Oh sure, they’ll have some man chattel in the outside world in order to clean the rain gutters and hang paintings and such but that’s it. Every other traditional use for men will be either automated or eliminated completely.

    It’s a devious plan that the likes of SPECTRE, SMERSH or even KAOS could never in their most evil minds have dreamt up.

    “This inequity is justified by an ideology that sees heterosexuality as natural, universal, and biologically necessary, and homosexuality as the opposite”
    Heterosexuality is natural. Every form of higher life on Earth, including most plants, has evolved to reproduce by the union of cells from a male entity and cells from a female entity. Most use some form of sex to accomplish this.

    Heterosexuality is universal. This is true by definition. While there are some lifeforms that reproduce asexually, there are none that reproduce homosexually.
    Heterosexuality is biologically necessary. Except for those that no reproduce asexually, there is no lifeform that cannot reproduce without the union of a male-donated and a female-donated cell.
    Homosexuality is natural. There are strong arguments to support this. However homosexuality is by definition deviant (not perverted) behavior and biologically unlikely ever to become the norm.
    Homosexuality is universal. This is clearly false, whether referring to species or individuals. At best it can be argued that it is universal among human populations.
    Homosexuality is biologically necessary. Completely and utterly false. Homosexuality by definition cannot serve any biological purpose.

    As for what these “women” may think of their fathers, Christina Hoff Sommers summarized the attitude that campus feminists inevitably develop about their families and backgrounds:
    “We will help your daughter discover the extent to which she has been in complicity with the patriarchy. We will encourage her to reconstruct herself through dialogue with us. She may become enraged and chronically offended. She will very likely reject the religious and moral codes you raised her with. She may well distance herself from family and friends. She may change her appearance, and even her sexual orientation. She may end up hating you (her father) and pitying you (her mother). After she has completed her reeducation with us, you will certainly be out tens of thousands of dollars and very possibly be out one daughter as well.”
