Feminism Is a Synonym for ‘Shut Up’

Posted on | February 7, 2016 | 67 Comments

Feminists despise all men and never want to hear a man say a word:

“I wish all men would shut the fuck up forever honestly. I never want to hear another unsolicited male opinion in my fucking life, least of all on feminist issues. It seems that all ‘feminist’ men care about is getting nice guy points and sleeping with women, or stroking their own egos and thinking they’re soooo great because they show basic human decency to women.”

This quote from an anonymous young feminist’s Tumblr blog expresses the esoteric reality of feminism — what feminists really think, and say to each other privately — in contrast to the exoteric rhetoric feminists speak in public when trying to recruit new members and attract “mainstream” political support. In public, feminists claim to believe in equality between men and women; privately, feminists seethe with resentment toward men, dismiss men’s accomplishments as “male privilege,” denounce men as entirely useless and — as in the example above — express a wish to silence men. As I have previously explained:

Feminism is always a lecture, never a debate. Feminists have no respect for men. No feminist ever wants to hear anything a man has to say, so what’s the point of saying anything to a feminist except “good-bye”?

Meanwhile, consider this headline:

Gloria Steinem Says Young Women
Only Support Bernie Because Boys Do

The iconic feminist Hillary supporter denounces the socialist Bernie Sanders as a patriarchal conspiracy? It’s too perfect!

America Needs Hillary for President Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle.

    Ivins was 100% correct in her scathing critique of George W Bush.

    In her dreams, perhaps, but no where else. All she had to offer was hatred, and she hated anyone with an ‘R’ behind their name.

    Ever read her book on W?

    Feminists say “fuck” a lot.

    Oh the poor Rs.
    Newt Gingrich was a master manipulator of partisan hate; so stop crying. It’s unbecoming of a Quartermaster.

    Hatred is anything that doesn’t match your loony leftist narrative. Gingrich was a a hater only in your imagination. Hate, OTOH, was Ivins’ stock in trade.

    Bu the by, her book was nothing but her normal hatred of anyone with an ‘R’ behind their name. In this case just aimed almost completely at Dubya. I have no truck with the man, but Ivins made a profession of hatred.

    You speak of modern feminists and feminzais, not traditional feminists.

    “Gingrich was a a hater only in your imagination”
    ROFL. You hateful right wing idiots have no compunction about lying your fool heads off.
    Admit it, you haven’t read Ivins book. I’ll bet you haven’t read a book in decades.

    I have no reason to lie. But you social justice warriors do nothing but lie. It’s part of your way of life. Fact is, it’s all you have.

    You need to take another look at your timeline there cowboy. The leftist bag of venom’s book didn’t come out “decades” ago. Like all you SJWs, she lied all the time. She went to her grave a liar.

    I’m not a “social justice warrior.” I’m a socialist. My politics is about fighting for the benefit of all working people.
    The reign of the rabid right is just about over. Socialism is no longer a dirty word in the USA!

    Whether or not socialism is a dirty word is something that is yet to be determined. You, OTOH, are a social justice warrior. You’ve already shown that by your statements.

    Socialism benefits only a few, the elites. The rest are relegated to stasis or increasing poverty. Every country that is mostly socialist is in decline. It has worked no where it has been tried.

    “Socialism benefits only a few, the elites. The rest are relegated to stasis or increasing poverty.”

    Absolutely false right wing propaganda. Socialism benefits the working class and people with low incomes.

    “Every country that is mostly socialist is in decline. It has worked no where it has been tried.” The US actively subverts any attempts at socialism anywhere, economically, politically and militarily.
    BTW, socialism worked in Libya and it works in Cuba.
    Also, you can call me a social justice warrior till you’re blue in the face. It just shows you to be right wing ideologue and a bit dumb to boot. Do you think your little made up names really matter?

    Sadly, for you, history is available to anyone who wants to read it.
    If you think socialism works in Cuba, then I’ve got a bridge in New York I’d be glad to sell you.
    Last I looked, Cuba was hell hole, The Soviet Union collapsed, and China went full bore fascist leaving behind Communism because it didn’t work. Libya was a hellhole before Qadaffy, and it became a worse hellhole under him.
    SJW is exactly what you are. I could not care less about how much you whine about the label being applied to you. The hall marks are in your posts as well as the body of idiocy you believe.
    Made up names indeed.

    Libya had the highest standard of living in Africa under Kaddafi. Cuba has free medical care and education and a high level of socio-economic equality.
    You substitute your own ignorant prejudice for facts.
    Screw you and your little made up names. What an asshole.

    Libya did not have the highest standard of living Africa under the daffy one. That title belongs to south Africa, in spite of the intentional destruction wrought by the ANC.

    Cuba is almost, if not, the poorest country in the western hemisphere. There is no socio-economic equality in a communist country doofus. It would seem the ignorant prjudice in place of facts is what you perpetrate.

    I didn’t “make up” the SJW term. It is a descriptive term for idiots that are doing exactly what you have done in your posts – spew ignorance and lies in place of facts. If you like the label to apply, I would suggest you grow up and learn how the world actually works instead of acting like an ignorant child.
