Harvard Sluts and the Thought Police

Posted on | February 3, 2015 | 60 Comments

Badger Pundit called my attention to a column in the Harvard University student newspaper by freshman Nian Hu:

I am a feminist. I believe in the equality of the sexes. For me, feminism means freedom: freedom to dress the way I want, freedom to choose whether or not to get pregnant, freedom to say no to unwanted sexual interaction, freedom to have as many sexual partners as I want without being looked down on, freedom to be an engineer or lawyer or nurse or stay-at-home mom — basically, freedom to live my life.

Whoa. Never mind whatever point Miss Hu thought she was making. The “freedom” she demands involves prohibiting others from having their own opinions. If you disapprove of promiscuity — and most people do, whether or not they openly express their disapproval — then you have somehow infringed Miss Hu’s “freedom” to be as slutty as she wants to be. That is to say, Miss Hu believes she is entitled to your approval.

How will this “freedom” she demands be enforced? How can these Harvard sluts be sure that they are not “being looked down on” while they’re putting out for every random guy in Cambridge?

And this won’t stop at Harvard. Next thing you know, those tramps at Princeton and floozies at Cornell will be demanding that everyone also approve of their notoriously rampant fornication. Ivy League girls, with their high SAT scores and low morals, have a basic human right to know that they are not “being looked down on” while they’re hooking up with any dude who is willing to risk a case of chlamydia.

“Boston residents ages 15 through 24 are almost four times
more likely to have Chlamydia than residents overall.
Among that age group, 70% of those diagnosed are female.”

What percentage of them are Harvard girls, huh? These vile hussies are a public health menace, but you’re not allowed to look down on them.

The Thought Police are everywhere now, monitoring our minds to make sure we aren’t harboring forbidden beliefs and impermissible opinions. We must think only what the progressive elites want us to think, or better yet, not even think at all. Thinking is dangerous — although perhaps not as dangerous as having sex with a nasty Harvard slut.

    The reason they want the approval of others is because inside themselves, they don’t approve of their own behavior and it makes them unhappy. They falsely believe that the approval of others will fill the void in their own lives.

    Never happens.

    So you have the freedom to live your life like William S. Burroughs (I was listening to this American Life this weekend). Bully for you. Guess what, you can do that now, but recognize that life style has consequences.

    Mizz Hu is going to make slut shaming a lot easier to do. Why, as a man would you want to have ANYTHING AT ALL to do with a promiscuous slut who will murder your baby, possibly accuse you of “rape” if she sours on the one night stand at any point in the future, AND will sleep with anything that walks on two legs?

    And, yes, sluts SHOULD be shamed. They make horrible partners, are an unwarranted risk for all men. Basically sluts are NOT marriage material.

    She has the freedom to never have to dress in a soldier’s uniform because her giant fib about equality forgets I don’t have that freedom. “Hi, I’m a feminist” is the same as “Hi, I’m a liar.”

    I wonder if having as many sexual partners she wants and being a nurse escalate on over to having sexual relationship with high school girls.
    or go away stampy feet angry because one of her young charges as a teacher tells her that “NO! MEANS NO!”

    To a great extent, I agree with her: people ought to have the right to live their lives as they see fit. However, like RSM, I object to her demand that other people not “look down on her” (“Don’t judge me!” is the battle cry of our society, it seems).

    Can I demand that Miss Hu not look down on me for, say, being against abortion? Or being in favor of chastity before marriage? I’m guessing that the answer is no.

    I also have to wonder what her parents make of her demands. She seems to put more emphasis on her sex life than on her education and career. Sounds a little skewed to me.

    I read through the rest of her article. I also, BTW, saw her pic: she’s rather pretty.

    The principle flaw in her article is the bit about “don’t judge me for being a tramp”, which I have to think is liberal boilerplate that she just put in there because she wants to seem cool and hip and trendy (though why sleeping around is “cool” is a mystery to me).

    The rest of it, however, had some fairly good points:

    Recently on LinkedIn I stumbled upon an article written by a founder of yet another female empowerment movement. The article opened with a description of “strong and successful alpha (masculine) women.” Forget the whole “Ban Bossy” movement that Beyoncé and others made famous. This assertion—made by a woman claiming to empower other women, no less—is claiming that assertive women are not just “bossy,” but also just flat-out masculine. Ouch.

    It seems to me that she is groping towards the realization that “feminists” have sold women a bill of goods. They’ve preached that women have to take on the stereotypical traits of men, from being abrasive and gruff “take charge” people to sleeping around… er… sexually empowering themselves, I meant to say. Hu realizes that this in bunk, that the feminists are putting women into a box just as much as men are alleged to have done. It’s also a box she doesn’t especially like.

    I am willing to keep an open mind about female empowerment movements. For the most part, however, they seem to be more detrimental than helpful, more belittling than uplifting. Female empowerment movements may claim to be empowering women, but what they are really doing is pigeonholing both sexes into predetermined life and career paths, and even personality traits. And that’s not fair to men or women.

    Good. Good, Miss Hu. Now, keep this idea – that people are telling you how you must live your life in order to be “empowered” – and reconsider what you wrote about not being judged for promiscuity. Do you WANT to be promiscuous? Do you think that any sensible person, in this age of Hep-C and HIV, would truly WANT to sleep around? Don’t you think that people who “look down” on women who do that might have a point?

    freedom to be an engineer or lawyer or nurse or stay-at-home mom—basically, freedom to live my life.

    Cling to this, Miss Hu. I realize that Hollywood and pop culture tell you that you are basically a walking sex organ, that what’s between your legs makes you magnificent and powerful*, and all your life decisions should revolve around what you do with it. But it’s what’s between your ears and what beats in your chest that count.

    I hope that we see more people like her writing this sort of thing. It’s not perfect, but it’s a damned sight better than the usual run of feminist garbage that makes out that women who don’t put career first, who aren’t willing to abort their children, who marry and WANT a family, who don’t think of stay-at-home moms as some sort of loathsome weaklings and traitors, are sell-outs, self-hating women who’ve been so beaten down by the patriarchy that they suffer from internalized sexism.


    (*) If you are a woman, of course. If you are a man, what’s between your legs makes you an oppressive brute who will rape women at the drop of a hat.

    It’s hardly a surprise: that’s the default desire of all of the kook groups. Homosexuals demand that they not only have the liberty to copulate with whomever they choose, but that you and society had damned well better approve. Transexuals are the next group demanding approval.

    “…freedom to choose whether or not to get pregnant…”

    Exactly! “whether or not to GET pregnant!” “GET!”

    Once you’ve gotten pregnant, you’ve made your choice. You’re now responsible for a life!

    When I was in high school, I was “looked down on” for wearing comic book superhero shirts (back in that age before the media OK’ed it for the “cool” people).

    When I switched to music, it wasn’t much better. I went in for Alan Parsons, Yes, ELP, and all that “nerd music” when all my “betters” were into AC/DC and Van Halen.

    I took my share of ridicule, but I liked who I was.

    How can anyone be so weak as to DEMAND approval from others?

    It’s really bizarre, as if a person’s junk is 99% of who he is. Even in high school, mine was only 94.3% of who I was.


    Seriously, is this what kids think of themselves? Are they that obsessed with sex? Is this the mark of an “empowered” woman? I gather that Dunham’s show has quite a lot of nudity and sex. I assumed that this was a cynical, prurient grab for ratings, but now I’m not so sure: she may really think that this is how people ARE. Even more scary: she may be right.

    Of course. Promiscuous women undermine the dignity of all woman, creating expectations of easy sexual availability, so that “nice” girls are pressured to compete with the sluts. We used to understand this, back when it was permissible for people to think for themselves without elite approval.

    I know. Badger Pundit wanted me to look at the girl’s criticism of the “empowerment” racket, but that phrase in the first paragraph stopped me. I don’t think she actually meant what she said. I think she just wanted to establish her feminist bona fides and so she wrote that sentence without thinking too hard about the implications of her words. But good God, she’s a HARVARD student! Even if she’s only a freshman, we expect a Harvard student to be able to write logically and coherently, and this idea that feminism is “freedom” that denies other people the right to their own opinions?

    It is pretty fucked up. The good girls find it hard to stay good for long when they are surrounded by sluts that pressure her to become one in a perverse ‘misery loves company’ type of clique. They ride the cock carousel together through high school and college, then conspire together to trap a bunch of hapless beta bux in marriage when they approach 30 and realize their looks are fading and the men they want (read: assholes and douchebags) only see them as pump and dump material. Of course, they don’t stay haaaaappy for long, and once the first girl in the group has an affair, or gets divorced, the others start to get ideas…

    This isn’t always necessarily the case. One girl I hooked up with was a hardcore feminist at the time and still looks good. Another became a feminist after (I sometimes wonder if I had anything to do with that) and has become more attractive than she was when I was first with her. Got to be careful with those though, you know the saying – ‘don’t stick your dick in crazy’ Case in point is yet another feminist I know who has made false sexual harassment/assault allegations more than once. Very beautiful on the outside but I don’t to be anywhere near her.

    Well, yes, actually, it apparently is. We used to be told that what other people do in their bedrooms is none of our business, and I am perfectly fine with that. Then that wasn’t good enough; now the abnormal people have an apparent need to tell us what they do in their bedrooms, and tolerance on our part is not enough, but approval is required.

    When these people define everything about them by their sexuality, it seems to me that they leave little else on which to be actually successful and productive in life.

    A guy that worked under me when I was County Engineer was married and worked in an office with 17 women and one queer. 1 of the women frivorced her husband, and by the end of the year, all the women were frivorced. My employee was the last victim of the group.

    His wife was head of Women’s Ministries at their Church and actually expected to be left in that position. Not only was she removed from the position, the Church disfellowshipped her groundless divorce.

    Would that more Churches would deal with sin in their ranks in the same manner.
