BAY MINETTE, Ala. — By most accounts, 19-year-old Brittney Wood was with uncle Donnie Holland the night of May 30, 2012, the last time anyone saw her. Holland — who was under investigation for horrific sex crimes at the time — died from a bullet within days in what was ruled a suicide.
The investigation that followed has publicly unraveled what authorities describe as a dark, twisted tale of perversion in the working-class neighborhoods and piney backwoods of coastal Alabama.
Eight of Woods’ adult relatives and three family friends have been charged with dozens of felonies in two counties as the alleged members of an incestuous ring that authorities say shared children for group sex. Holland was the leader, prosecutors say, of what has been described as the largest sex ring ever uncovered in Alabama. Wood was a victim and likely key witness. . . .
Even without Wood to testify, two of her uncles and an older brother already have pleaded guilty to sex charges, and jurors this month convicted a friend of Holland’s of multiple sex charges in the first trial. Others — including the missing teen’s mother, Chessie Wood, and two aunts — await trial. . . .
The case is so big officials don’t know exactly how many kids inside and outside the family might have been victimized; estimates range from 11 to 16 children who were as young as 3 or 4 when they were first molested or made to watch adult relatives during drug-fueled orgies.

In case you didn’t get the headline reference to the late feminist Andrea Dworkin, here’s a quote from her 1974 book Woman Hating:

The incest taboo does the worst work of the culture: it teaches us the mechanisms of repressing and internalizing erotic feeling . . . The destruction of the incest taboo is essential to the development of cooperative human community based on the free-flow of natural androgynous eroticism. . . .
The incest taboo can be destroyed only by destroying the nuclear family as the primary institution of the culture. The nuclear family is the school of values in a sexist, sexually repressed society.

Most people have no idea of the insane hateful perversity that is feminism’s ideological core. The fundamental theories of feminism constitute a doctrine hostile to men, marriage, motherhood, morality and, ultimately, hostile to heterosexuality, per se.  But this esoteric doctrine is never the topic of discussion when feminists are engaged in public propaganda. The general audience hears only the exoteric discourse, which focuses on specific grievances and is couched in liberal rhetoric about “rights,” “equality” and “progress.”

Feminism’s inherent contradictions create cognitive dissonance, and the feminist is prone to irrationality, becoming unhinged from the stress. And since we’re on the topic of unhinged perverts:

Where to begin with Lena Dunham? First of all, we can’t imagine a world where accusations of the molestation of a younger sibling would be “LOL.” And second, while the most disturbing passage from Dunham’s book, “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s ‘Learned,’” has been covered by conservative outlets like National Review and Truth Revolt, it’s far from a “right wing news story” when those sites simply quote verbatim from Dunham’s book.

Weird things keep happening. Remember the gay men who shared their adopted son with a pedophile ring called the Boy Lovers Network? Remember “My Sister Is Pregnant and We Don’t Know Which of My Brothers is the Father”? Police in Arkansas say a 2-year-old girl died after suffering “severe internal injuries” when she was raped by her uncle. Yet amid this frightening epidemic of wickedness, Lena Dunham thinks she can write a bestselling memoir in which she confesses to doing creepy things with her baby sister and nobody can be allowed to criticize her for it? This freak has an HBO series?

Andrea Dworkin could not be reached for comment, but I get the feeling Lena might be seeing her soon enough, as she seems to be traveling at top speed down a highway that leads to the gates of Hell.

    Hate, no, afraid of heterosexuals.

    The racial origins of the intersectional feminism Dunham supports are about to bite Dunham hard. The REAL voices of intersectionalism like Lauren Chief Elk and Mikki Kendall and the whole crew have turned on Dunham. Dunham is a victim of her own ideology and racialist nonsense about white privilege. In short, Dunham is through. I predict she is through at HBO, and anywhere really. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Anita Sarkeesian and all the doofs in SFF who support the same ideology are only a skin’s thickness from going the same route, especially the “allies” – the men. Have a nice day eating each other in race-gender sandwiches, you morons. Next time try this thing called a “principle.” Y’know – no race, religion, etc.?

    For those people unfortunate enough to watch Dunham’s show, it appears that she had been dropping some hints about this through her semi-fictional, putrid alter ego Hannah Horvath:

    “Hannah’s cousin Rebecca is by far the most interesting new character we meet this week. Grandma Flo might be the most likable, but Rebecca is the most interesting. She’s Hannah’s opposite in every way. She’s going to med school. She’s obsessively studious. She’s rude to Hannah at every turn (trashing writing, implying that she’s annoying her), but then asks her to hang out. She wants to hang out with Hannah, but she also seems to hate her. Then, in a bizarre moment, she kind of accuses Hannah of molesting her as a child, claiming that she made her lay under the covers and masturbate with her. It’s an odd moment. Hannah seems genuinely shocked and offended by the accusation, and the resulting argument (along with Rebecca’s insistence on texting her mother while driving) results in the two of them getting into a non-fatal car accident.”

    Oooh I see a lot of racial politics involved here. Good. This will make the whole ordeal maximally awkward and unpleasant for the Dunham Defenders.

    OK, Could you explain why someone who is gay should be afraid of heterosexuals?

    Oh yes, Seal Press is a goldmine of perversity and nonsense. I hate to send poor Mr. McCain off to wander in that wilderness after his radfem project, but there’s more crazy than you can shake a diseased marital aid at over there, and it’s of a different flavor than all the 70s Dworkin stuff.

    And Salon is now in schizophrenic damage control mode.

    First, they tried to play the “She fires back after right-wing accuses her of sibling ‘sexual abuse'” to make it seem like their blessed diva was just laughing off a minor conservative nuisance.

    Then they start putting “abuse” in quotes as if only they can tell what “abuse” is, but conceding that Dunham’s story was “sketchy.” But it’s not “abuse,” they promise.

    Then they resorted to quoting Dunham’s sister’s “heteronormativity” subterfuge to try to make it blow over.

    Then they let slip that Dunham has threatened to sue TruthRevolt (meaning Dunham does not find this to be such a minor nuisance), but the only point Salon can try to make is that Shapiro’s response to the legal threat was “misguided.”

    Then they try the line that “Her story about her sister could have been a teaching opportunity.” When leftists or progressives try to invoke a “teachable moment,” what that really means is “Yeah, we kinda did something bad, but let’s not focus on that and just delve into some abstract and theoretical discussion so we can be let off the hook.”

    And now they’re back to the “conservative conspiracy” line with their headline “The right’s Lena Dunham nonsense just won’t stop” and saying that this is all a conspiracy to silence “courageous” women. When a person publishes sexual things she did to her one year old sister and shrieks for everyone to buy her book, that is not “courage.” That is “felony stupidity.”

    No, but I also can’t explain why homosexuals would think that heterosexuals are afraid of them.

    Too late for damage control on this one. Dunham is toast, and the people who defended her will not be forgotten. Now you know why so many gender feminists are keeping quiet. They understand their own hypocrisy.

    But if you try and “cure” it you’re a bigoted homophobe. And yet gay feminists spend academic careers trying to “cure” heterosexuality.

    Cue: more madness and hypocrisy.

    It’s odd that in the end every cult like mentality ends in child sexual abuse, and the attempt to normalize it.

    Coming to the rescue of a not helpless female as a chivalrous turd who admits to being an SJW is by definition a white knight.

    The weird thing is that you can tell she knew better from the tortured syntax of, “This was within the spectrum of things I did.”

    He came to condemn her, is far from chivalrous, and is so anti-SJW that he makes you look like a radical feminist by comparison.

    Well, if that was true, maybe he should have condemned her, instead of defending her.

    What bothers me the most is that she is unrepentant about it.

    I very much doubt she thinks she has anything to repent. If her publisher or HBO force her to apologize in order to save her career, it’ll be the same old insincere horseshit so typical of today’s celebrities.

    “Thought or objection”? Likely the traditional publishers SJW’s depend upon for validation were pushing for ever more “edginess” in her writing in every book. Their only objection is that she hasn’t jumped the shark quite high enough.
