Feminist Hears Voices in Her Head

Posted on | January 20, 2015 | 78 Comments

Julie Zeilinger (@juliezeilinger) has found a new feminist hero:

[F]eminist vlogger Kat Lazo . . . recently decided to stride confidently around her Queens, New York, neighborhood in the nude, and then post footage of the NSFW stroll online for the masses to see.
“I can say that there hasn’t been a day where I’m not consciously fighting against the voices in my head from the pressures of society’s beauty standards,” Lazo writes in a blog post explaining her decision to film the video. “It’s exhausting to constantly reject the lies that the media and sometimes even your own family feeds you. . . . I wanted to silence all the voices in my head so I could hear my own voice.”

Consulting a few online psychiatric sources, we learn that people who hear voices in their head and run around naked may be suffering from schizophrenia. Haldol or Thorazine are often prescribed to control these symptoms. But the feminist lunatics are running the asylum:

At the end of the day, Lazo . . . wants to “challenge the media, question social norms and encourage young folks, particularly young women, to think critically about the world.”

Sure. Go ahead. “Think critically about the world.” But don’t forget that the world is also thinking critically about you, and we’re pretty sure you need a daily dose of Thorazine.

    If you break ’em they make good mortar, like if you’re a wounded alien Predator thing that just had its arm cut off.

    Yes, because running around naked in public and talking about the voices in their heads is JUST what Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton used to do.

    Seriously: it’s in ALL the history books.

    By the way, is that Zeilinger like, a robot that somebody programs. It seems they all have the same feeds about black woman directors you need to know and god bless Melissa Harris-Perry and “white privilege” oh, that rape thingy and women are really boss dude so check ’em out. They’re like old Teen Beat fans except they like any woman instead of The Monkees. Should I ask a woman for her autograph next time I male gaze her rack?

    And if any male did a catcall because she was wandering around nude, I bet she got pissed off, too.

    Seriously, do these feminists think that most men would have any problem with a moderately attractive woman walking around nude?

    Look at this way. Imagine the fun at the will reading when your heirs are confronted with the limited edition plates commemorating scenes from the French Revolution.

    Son: Daddy Phil really loved these. I think he would’ve wanted you to have them.

    Daughter: No, no. I couldn’t. Salic Law requires them to be passed on to the son–all 72 of them, along with the display case. I think they’d look great in your living room.

    Son’s Wife: **** you. Not in my living room, you trollop.

    You make one point that’s correct. It was wrong for RSM to liken this stunt to schizophrenia, a serious mental illness. I thought he (you, RSM, if you are reading this) was smarter than that. Recently he advised his readers not to take cheap shots at feminists but debate them on the merits. This wasn’t one of them.

    That said, you’re dead wrong on every other count and RSM is right in principle, even if he didn’t argue his case properly.

    She is not a “playfully silly gal” but a seriously misguided young woman who has never been made to abide by legitimate behavioral boundaries. She may not be actually schizophrenic, but I strongly suspect that she has borderline personality disorder due to the manipulative, histrionic, and exhibitionist stunt she pulled.

    The late Albert Ellis once advised self-conscious people to wear the most ridiculous outfit they could think of, and walk around in it. For the most part, people really don’t look at you. They don’t care what you are wearing.

    In this case, a supposedly self-conscious woman walked around in public, inviting the attention she knew she would get. Furthermore, she filmed herself doing so. This is the exact opposite of what Dr. Ellis advised. He was trying to get people to see reality.

    This young woman is deluded – she doesn’t realize that even though we don’t have formal boundaries anymore* we do have them internally. She has publicly shamed herself. She is now in disgrace. Her future is clouded, if not actually ruined. Unless she has a trust fund, at some point she’ll have to get a real job. She may want a real husband. She will find neither. What man would marry a woman who does this?

    And the idiot who runs the feminist website encourages her in doing this. Madness, absolute madness.

    *She could be prosecuted under indecent exposure laws:

    But that won’t happen. We will continue to encourage this insanity until something really bad happens.

    She is a real feminist not a social justice warrior scold.

    “Recently he advised his readers not to take cheap shots at feminists but debate them on the merits.”

    I dunno about that. Feminism has no merits.

    Also, it’s a waste of time debating feminists. No sensible debate can be had with people who believe facts and logic are heteropatriarchal tools of oppression.

    You can only debate people who are prepared to argue in good faith. Feminists’ habitual dishonesty and hysteria about imaginary “rape culture” precludes them from any sort of rational exchange of ideas.

    I am grateful to Mr McCain for his forensic analysis and razor-sharp mockery of feminism.

    We will continue to encourage this insanity until something really bad happens.

    To hear SJW’s tell it, women are constantly in danger of being raped because we men are (apparently) a pack of amoral brutes who are so ruled by our di… um… baser urges, I meant to say… that the mere sight of a woman will cause us to loose our inner rapist, rip her clothes off, toss her into a pile of broken glass, and call up all our pals to get in on the action. Yet, this girl deliberately walks around in public au naturale, heedless of the swarms of elite white fraternity boys potentially lurking nearby. Horatius at the Bridge, Danjou at Camerone Hacienda, Basilone at Guadalcanal… Simply not in it: Kat Lazo is the EPITOME of courage!

    “I dunno about that. Feminism has no merits.”

    Yes, he did, it was recent, look it up.

    And the point wasn’t to convince feminists but to convince honestly confused people who are watching on the sidelines.

    I agree with you about good faith and arguing with crazies. I say the same thing here a lot.

    And, of course, it’s probably safe to assume that, in the usual fashion, this was *NOT* a person one wanted to see walking around the neighborhood naked? Because it would be too much to ask that, just once, the naked person scaring the horses is reasonably inoffensive?

    This “anti-feminist tribe” includes atheists, agnostics, pagans, and who knows what. Your “silly gal” is an attention whore. If we were going to merely jump a shark, we would need a smaller boat.

    The way to convince people on the sidelines is to make them understand this brand of “feminism” has a much to do with “feminism” as does the KKK. Real feminists are interested in law and equal protection. Only supremacist bigots take down millions at a go according to race and sex. Maintaining the Oscars constitutes a white supremacy merely by reason of an innocent demographic majority is no different than saying all of central Africa defaults to racist supremacy. Oh, look. A lot of whites. Patriarchy, racism; case closed.
