Never Argue With a Feminist

Posted on | December 13, 2016 | 2 Comments


Beware of pretty faces that you find.
A pretty face can hide an evil mind . . .
Oh, don’t you let you let the wrong word slip
While kissing persuasive lips.
Odds are you won’t live to see tomorrow.

Johnny Rivers, “Secret Agent Man,” 1966

My blog buddy The Political Hat has taken to posting some of my articles on radical feminism to Reddit’s “Men’s Rights” forum. As I have sometimes remarked, I am not a men’s rights activist (MRA) because, as a conservative, I do not believe in the idea of group “rights.”

We have no more rights than we are willing to die defending. All your rights under the Constitution — including your First Amendment rights to free speech and freedom of religion — are ultimately dependent on your Second Amendment right to defend yourself against anyone who would wrongfully deprive you of your life, liberty or property.

Therefore, to speak of “rights” in terms of identity groups is to incite hostility between these groups, an invitation to the Hobbesian nightmare of anarchy and civil war — bellum omnium contra omnes, the war of all against all — and the destruction of civilization:

Hereby it is manifest that during the time men live without a common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called War; and such a war as is of every man against every man. . . . In such condition there is no place for Industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continual Fear, and danger of violent death; And the life of man solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and the feminist’s destructive purposes make her an enemy of everyone who values the benefits of civil society, especially including what Jefferson called “the pursuit of happiness.” Feminists are as much anti-happiness as they are anti-male, anti-capitalist and anti-Christian.

When you understand what feminism actually is, you understand why I say, never argue with a feminist. Simply quote them, and the evil of their ideology should be self-evident to every intelligent person. Consider the case of lesbian feminist Hannah Rose McShane.

She was voted “Outstanding Student” in the Gender and Sexuality Studies program at Georgia State University. How can one “argue” with her total hatred of heterosexual men (“cishet white boy tears”)? If a lesbian feminist asserts that “men are trash,” what can you say in reply? Hatred is an emotion, and not subject to factual dispute. America is a free country, and Hannah Rose McShane is therefore free to hate men. All I did was to quote her (e.g., “F**k the patriarchy”) in order to demonstrate the anti-male hate propaganda being taught by her professors at Georgia State University, where Ms. Shane was hired as a student assistant. The taxpayers and legislators of Georgia may wish to investigate why a state university is promoting “Lesbian and queer organizing . . . feminist and queer theory,” to quote one of Ms. McShane’s professors, but that’s up to them. My job is merely to research and document the facts.

About 15 hours work went into that carefully researched article, and when it was posted to Reddit by The Political Hat, the first commenter said, “Just another radicalised feminist. It’s not even worth trying to debate these sorts of people with sound reasoning, facts, and logic. All you’ll get back is abuse.” To which another commenter replied: “No do it, debate them, but make sure other people are watching. Drag them into the light.” As I say, however, there is no point debating feminists. You can’t argue with hate, which is what feminism is.

Documenting this hatred requires research. Think how many hours went into documenting what is being taught for $63,550 a year at Swarthmore, which has an entire department devoted to analyzing “the social relations of power” and offering “feminist critiques of biology,” staffed by professors who are experts in “heteropatriarchal language” and “gender non-conformity and sexual dissidence.”

You cannot argue with these people — they are clearly beyond the reach of rational discourse — but you can expose them:

What bothers me is how, when we are engaged in a war of ideas, so many people continue to be deceived by appearances. Whenever I blog about feminism, this attracts comments from men who disparage the looks of women like Andrea Dworkin — “ugly fat man-hating dyke,” etc. — rather than engaging with the monstrous ideology such women promoted. . . .
For more than two years, I’ve been researching radical feminism . . . to demonstrate what feminism really is. People keep laughing, as if no one could possibly believe such things, and yet this anti-male/anti-heterosexual hate propaganda is promoted in “10,000 courses teaching over 90,000 students at 700 colleges and universities across the nation.” What will happen when, in 10 or 15 years, the alumnae of these Women’s Studies are indoctrinating the next generation of young fools? And what will opponents say when the man-hating dykes are not so fat and ugly? . . .

You can read the rest of that at The Patriarch Tree. The problem posed by feminists who put a pretty face on this ugly ideology is that young men are not trained to beware that “a pretty face can hide an evil mind.” This is also why young men so often suffer romantic misfortune.


Ask yourself, what was James Bond’s job? He was an intelligence operative, whose most basic task was gathering information. One must apply one’s self diligently to preparing for the mission:

Luck is the intersection of preparation and opportunity, as they say, and the Boy Scout motto “Be Prepared” is the secret to being lucky in love. . . .
When people tell me how lucky I am to have such a wonderful wife, I smile and say: “Luck? No, it was skill.” The difference between talent and skill is that skill may be improved by practice. Work hard at something — 10,000 hours, as Malcolm Gladwell said — and you are certain to improve your skill. . . .

Read the rest of that, too.
