Simone de Beauvoir, Pervert

Posted on | October 6, 2014 | 41 Comments

One of the things they don’t teach in Women’s Studies classes is that pioneering feminist author Simone de Beauvoir was a pervert who was fired from a teaching job for seducing teenage girls:

In 1943, Simone de Beauvoir was fired for behavior leading to the corruption of a minor.
Once again, the apologists of de Beauvoir might rush to say that the 1943 moment was a singular incident . . . But nothing could be further from the truth.
De Beauvoir’s sexual interest for children is a theme spreading throughout her life. She was amongst the first philosophers who tried to unite the genre that had begun in the 1930s (and that lasted until 1980s in Western Europe) of female pedagogical pedophilia. She attempted this unification with her essay “Brigitte Bardot and the Lolita Syndrome,” published for the first time in Esquire magazine in 1959 and then republished multiple times until the mid-1970s. . . .
The 1959 essay was just the beginning. In 1977, de Beauvoir, alongside most of the Marxist French intelligentsia, signed a petition demanding nothing more and nothing less than the legalization of pedophilia and the immediate release of three individuals who were due to serve long jail sentences for sexually exploiting several boys and girls aged 11 to 14. . . .
The 1977 petition triggered an entire discussion at the societal level in France about the laws concerning age of consent, a discussion in which the abolitionist camp (of which de Beauvoir and her lover were part of) united into Front de libération des Pédophiles (FLIP — the Pedophiles Liberation Front) and the intentions of the members of FLIP were explained quite clearly by themselves in the discussion broadcasted on the radio in April 1978 by Radio France Culture. . . .
All these make de Beauvoir not just a pedophile apologist but an active supporter. However, what makes her an abuser is her activity through which she was recruiting pupils, abusing them, and then passing them to Jean-Paul Sartre, sometimes separately, sometimes in an integrated ménage à trois. The Telegraph writes in a review of Carole Seymour-Jones’s book, Simone de Beauvoir? Meet Jean-Paul Sartre, a book meant to analyze de Beauvoir’s relationship with Sartre, the following:

For long periods, the couple became a “trio”, though the arrangement rarely worked out well for the third party: at least two of de Beauvoir’s former pupils found themselves becoming first her lover, then Sartre’s, only for the couple to close ranks against them once the fun wore off. . . .
For Seymour-Jones, de Beauvoir’s affairs with her students were not lesbian but paedophiliac in origin: she was “grooming” them for Sartre, a form of “child abuse”.

For de Beauvoir (as well as for Sartre), age didn’t matter as long as the partners were younger than her and Sartre. The possibility that others might get hurt or sexually exploited wasn’t even remotely on the eminent feminist’s radar, who thought that “grooming” girls in order for Sartre to take their virginity (Sartre’s words, not ours) was in and of itself an act of sexual empowerment for those girls.

 You can read the whole thing at A Voice for Men. It was written by a Romanian writer, Lucian Valsan, who remarks:

A while ago, a group of coffee-shop feminists were trying to convince me that feminism is not as bad as I say it is and that if I just read more about feminism, I would eventually understand. . . . Of course, those feminists were unable to fathom that someone had taken their ideology seriously enough to read its literature and then rationally end up utterly rejecting it. As with any other cult, such a thing is inconceivable for the true believers of the sect.

Indeed. I know exactly what he means. Readers may be interested in Carole Seymour-Jones’ book, A Dangerous Liaison, as well as Bianca Lamblin’s memoir, A Disgraceful Affair:

It is the story of Bianca Bienenfeld, a 17-year-old student who was seduced by her philosophy professor, de Beauvoir, and then passed on to de Beauvoir’s partner/lover Sartre. The three lived in a menage ‘a trois between 1939 and 1940, when the relationship ended and the teenager was abandoned.

Probably won’t find those books in your Women’s Studies syllabus.

    The lesbian attraction to young girls is the symptom of their misdirected need for nurturing children. Whatever …

    Feminism teaches that every common-sense belief we have about women — including the maternal instinct — is a “myth.” But then you start reading the biographies of leading feminists and it makes you go, “Hmmm.”

    One is tempted to relate the “facts on the ground” of Sartre’s and de Beauvoir’s lives to their philosophical musings. Sadly, such an undertaking is beyond the scope of a blog comment. Suffice it to say, their souls were filled with le néant. In 1789, the French sought to remove God from their national essence. They were successful. Sartre and de Beauvoir are the result.

    Wow, it’s almost as if there’s a gigantic fraud being perpetrated against students by withholding this information.
    Anything that would undermine the Feminist narrative of these foundational figures must be suppressed.

    At this rate your forthcoming book will be treated similar to Derek Freeman’s book the fraud perpetrated by Margret Mead, as you said facts are the new “hate speech”.

    Y’know, one could assume this extends to the male homosexual as well as something of an expression of the common aspiration of most men to have a son…

    Surely the homosexuals know their frolicking is never going to produce anything! I should have to think some more to fit the so-called “bisexuals” into this synthesis…

    Have I mentioned before that I consider homosexuality to be in the same spectrum of pathology as paedophilia? I believe I have…

    And feminism, like most liberal ideology, is making enormous strides, conquering the minds of the youth, moving unhindered through news and entertainment media, and shows no signs of stopping.

    In my most pessimistic post ever, I’d like to ask: Has any leftist crackpot ideology EVER been turned away? Have we ever seen one of them NOT eventually become the cultural norm?

    And what does this say about the movement to legalize/normalize pedophilia?

    Seems to me the left patiently gets their way, even if they have to move one inch per decade.

    When they get their wish of legalized pedophilia (and criminalized opposition thereof) then all these pedophile “heroes” who were “forced to live in the shadows” will finally be lauded and celebrated.

    Those two names, de Beauvoir and Sarte are powerfully illustrative of the degree to which this problem infects intellectuals. Unlike the typical names in feminism, those two are considered to be of genuinely “towering” intellect. (It’s not limited to feminism, of course. Chomsky is a similar example over in Linguistics).

    Intellectuals frequently succumb to a form of mental illness. It involves the self-benighted belief that their level of genius mandates that they transfer their scholastic credentials in a narrow discipline (usually ending in “studies”) to the exalted, Masters of the Universe level of thinking.

    This transfer allows them to generate rationale after rationale for their own lack of self control.

    Although leftist thinking is born from this corruption of mind, it’s clearly not a problem limited to the left. Anyone familiar with Ayn Rand’s personal life would have to agree with that.

    So the question arises, “How do we become as intelligent as our biochemistry allows, without succumbing to such evil?” While the Bible and Theologians have nailed this problem quite well (hint for the atheists: it falls under mortal sin), the rest of the intellectual world seems helpless to defend itself from this form of corruption.

    Space and courtesy prevents me from doing the full exposition here, but I submit that the modern University is a major incubator of the deformed mind. Not in all departments or disciplines (thankfully), and where genuine intelligence is favored over gross intellectualism, some students still escape with fully-functioning minds.

    But the “towering” intellects have no excuse. They are the perpetrators of first order. Unfortunately the university closes around them and makes it difficult to know of their crimes until years after their deaths.

    Thanks for continuing to bring this information to our attention, Stacy.

    My brother was good at math. That was it. Good at math.

    Because of that (and the insane amount of praise heaped on him by our parents), he imagined “good at math” to mean “super intelligent in every aspect of existence.”

    He went on to become the most arrogant bastard you’ve ever met: severe woman-hater and neo-Nazi. An incredible creep.

    His life is a shambles as he is on probation for several federal crimes.

    My parents’ explanation? “His problem is that he’s TOO smart.”

    I’ve heard this line “TOO smart” in regards to other people who “can’t fit in.” No. They’re just idiots who IMAGINE that they are too smart.

    Wow. That’s it in a nutshell.

    I tell people I’m a failed genius, working on my second million, because the first just never seemed to materialize. But what I really am is someone who has studied and worked in a rather broad slice of life’s offerings. I protect my mind by working with experts in a new field, who are quick to wonder if I’ll ever be good enough to hold the job.

    But even more importantly, those are typically non-intellectual fields. Carpentry, engineering, accounting, food service, etc.

    Nothing helps you keep your arrogance in check like a supervisor who calls you in, and informs you, the college boy, that you’re screwing up stuff that guys who can’t even read seem to handle swiftly, with skill and precision.

    It also helps to accept dinner invites to the homes of said people who can’t read, and learn some humility. Because they seem to carry on quite well with a simple work ethic and the recognition that you need to take your kids to church.

    Breadth is better than depth, when it comes to the mind and the soul.

    The contempt with which de Beauvoir held Bianca Bienenfeld should be mentioned. Bienenfeld was Jewish and the couple dumped her during the occupation.

    de Beauvoir wrote of her that she smelled ‘fecal’ and she cried “in front of a wailing wall that she builds with her own busy hands… Something of the old Jewish usurer in her.” Writing to Sarte to applaud the breakup, she wrote the girl “She’s prophesying doom like a Cassandra (what’s new?) and hesitating between the concentration camp and suicide.”

    This was about a 19 year old girl, BTW.

    (Incidentally, Cassandra was right. She had the gift to see the future, but the curse that no one would believe her. Calling someone else “Cassandra” is like saying, “She’s right, but I’m too mind-controlled to believe her.”)

    I submit that the modern University is a major incubator of the deformed mind.

    There’s no doubt that your assertion is correct. One could legitimately argue that the University is the only incubator of the condition you identify because it holds the “keys to the kingdom,” as it were. With out its imprimatur, one is nothing. The Ph.D. becomes the cloak of infallibility and those without it unreasonably defer to those with it in all circumstances.

    That said, it is possible not to succumb to the madness. I know this, because my spouse is possessed of a Ph.D. in the Humanities. The difference is, she was grounded in firmly in her Christian beliefs before she entered the academy. Her preferred research interest, (comparative syntax & grammar) was not one which necessitated selling her soul. She remains well-grounded to this day, and many people continue to be surprised when/if they learn she’s a “Doctor,” because she never mentions it.

    She is the exception to the rule in my experience, however, and those few exceptions prove your point.
