If I Hated Women …

Posted on | October 15, 2015 | 45 Comments

. . . I’d write something misogynist like this:

One important thing to remember in life: Do not coddle women. Do not do their work for them. Do not perform uncredited labor for them, including intellectual labor. Do not bend over backwards to help them. Do not tell them they are good at things they are bad at. Do not smile at them when you don’t want to. Do not laugh at their terrible jokes or stroke their egos or let them think they are better than you when odds are good that they are almost definitely not. Do not even deal with women whose presence bothers you when you can get away from them/when you aren’t regularly forced to be near them for things like work. Do not include women in your life who don’t deserve to be in it any time that you can avoid it at all.

Except that’s a feminist blog post, and all I changed was to substitute the word “women” where she wrote “men.”

UPDATE: Here is another Tumblr feminist who supplies a list of “Pseudo-intellectual Pricks,” the basic point of which is that any man who disagrees with a feminist is an arrogant idiot. The purpose of this listing is to encourage women to disregard any criticism offered by any man, period — epistemic closure, whereby everything men say is automatically invalidated.

    If you were to replace the word “men” in her post with “people,” I would pretty much agree if one is in an “every man/woman for himself/herself” work environment. The problems with that, however, are two; First, if males were to behave in the manner she describes, they or their employer would be sued for creating a hostile work environment. Second, current business practices emphasize a team approach. When your continued employment is based upon the success of the team as a whole, smugly watching a teammate–male or female–founder is counterproductive to your long term employment prospects. Imagine being a prospective employer and seeing that post when you do your due diligence social media search. Thanks, but no thanks.

    She says, not seeing the irony of herself being a stereotype.

    She also has a Tumblr post entitled “The Big List of BPD Treatment Resources”.

    That’s Borderline Personality Disorder, yo.

    Oh, dear. Borderline personality disorder is one of those diagnoses that flourish in feminist Tumblr land.

    Naturally, I do open the pickle jars for them, or at least for my wife; I don’t have too many occasions in which my assistance is required with stuck jar lids where other women would be involved. 🙂

    And I get things off the top shelf, too!

    The obvious question being, are such truly borderline, as opposed to being squarely centered in whacko?

    Wait, what is the child of a Marxist doing with an Xbox, much less a game like Grand Theft Auto? Shouldn’t the child be busy bringing about the dictatorship of the proletariat? Shouldn’t he be painting placards or publishing subversive newletters to distribute in homeroom? Slacker!

    Gee. Not very smart to admit to having borderline personality disorder if you want your readers to be receptive to your advice on dealing with people.

    Borderline personality disorder IS squarely centered in whacko. Not sure why they call it “borderline” but there’s nothing “borderline” about it.

    I recently offered to help a vertically-challenged woman in a supermarket reach something on the upper shelf. She practically spat the words, “I can do it myself!” back at me. So I stepped back and watched as she literally climbed up onto the shelf to reach the product she wanted and back down…THAT’s some good people watching material. Now, I could wonder if it was because she didn’t want my black hands touching her cereal (and yes, it is kinda strange for a white guy to walk around a supermarket with black hands, but what I do with my time is between me and my hypnotherapist so stop being Judgy McJudge). I wonder if this woman was short with me because she was short or because she was a feminist…I wonder what the average height of feminist women is…I wonder if feminism is just a Napoleon Complex for women since they seem to be mad with a desire for power…trapped forever on Elba since all of the good stuff is always on the top shelf… I swear that almost some of this actually happened.

    According to data from a subsample of participants in a national survey on mental disorders, about 1.6 percent of adults in the United States have BPD in a given year.

    And they’re all on Tumblr.

    The great thing about these types of feminists is that they know the best places to get men’s Hair Cuts.

    And animal shelters. They know where all the animal shelters are.

    Are these not good things? I’m quite pleased when they adopt a dog or cat which would otherwise be euthanized.

    And actual barbers, as opposed to “stylists,” are a dying breed; ’tis much better that they help support the last practitioners of this skill.

    Whoever wrote that bit about intellectual pricks shows the average I.Q. of our beloved feminists, which is probably about 70.
