Feminist @HannahSmothers_ Confirms the Worst Stereotypes of Feminism

Posted on | March 29, 2017 | 2 Comments

Hannah Smothers writes for Cosmopolitan.

Never take advice from feminists. How many times do I have to explain this? If a young woman’s goal in life is to become a crazy cat lady, she doesn’t need anyone’s advice to accomplish that goal, and if she wants to be anything else . . . Well, feminism can’t help her.

In a tiny Brooklyn apartment, a 2015 University of Texas graduate named Hannah Smothers is well on her way to becoming a crazy cat lady, but meanwhile she’s “Sex & Relationships Editor at” To give you an idea of what an expert Ms. Smothers is about relationships, she got dumped by her boyfriend two weeks before Valentine’s Day, and turned this into a column about being her own Valentine.


“Romantic dinner for one” — whether or not she owns a cat, she’s otherwise making rapid progress toward her career goal, IYKWIMAITYD.

Why did her boyfriend dump her? She doesn’t explain this, but I’ll bet $20 that if you asked her ex-boyfriend, his answer would include the word “crazy.” The symptoms of Ms. Smothers’ insanity are obvious. After all, no psychologically healthy person would leave the great state of Texas and move to a tiny apartment in Brooklyn. Beyond that, however, Ms. Smothers exhibits a morbid obsession with killing babies. She is a bloodthirsty pro-abortion fanatic, for whom maintaining federal funding for Planned Parenthood is a sacred crusade. Advocates of infanticide are not nice people, and the feminist movement’s pro-abortion agenda attracts heartless monsters who consider baby-killing a “right.”

Hannah Smothers last year met her feminist idol, Gloria Steinem.

Hannah Smothers has the three crucial traits of a feminist — the craziness, the cruelty and don’t forget, the dishonesty.

A feminist must always engage in semantic games intended to conceal reality, to hide away evidence that she is the source of her own problems. What’s the difference between (a) feminists claiming that women are oppressed by “patriarchy” and (b) neo-Nazis blaming their problems on Jews? Nothing really. Both are paranoid conspiracy theories that function as explanations of failure. You lost your job because the factory shut down? Blame the greedy Jews! You’re spending Valentine’s Day alone because your boyfriend dumped you? Blame the patriarchy!


Yes, that’s the headline on a Hannah Smothers column: “16 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Ever Gave a Blow Job,” and I’m sure the Pulitzer Prize committee will be impressed with this quality journalism.

Am I the only one who’s noticed the extent to which “feminism” has become merely a pretext for women to write about their sex lives? But you also notice that we never hear the other side of the story, do we?

16 Reasons Why You Should Never Let
Hannah Smothers Give You a Blowjob

by Hannah’s Ex-Boyfriend

The ex-boyfriends of feminists are conspicuously silent. No guy has ever written a tell-all essay, e.g., “I Banged Amanda Marcotte,” because such an admission would permanently damage his reputation.


Yes, that’s the headline on yet another Hannah Smothers column which, for some reason, the Pulitzer Prize committee overlooked last year.

Her journalism professors at the University of Texas must be proud of Ms. Smothers’ career achievement in writing about oral sex and queefing, but what brought her to my attention this week — thanks to Spacebunny on Gab — was this headline:

Why Guys Get Turned on When You Orgasm
— and Why That’s a Bad Thing

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. Ms. Smothers has managed to find, somewhere in her feminist theory, a reason to be anti-orgasm.

Regardless of the specifics that led Ms. Smothers to her conclusion, this was an inevitable destination, inherent in feminist theory. As I said last year in reference to Anita Sarkeesian, a primary goal of feminism is to abolish male happiness. Feminists believe anything that makes men happy must be wrong. Therefore, they must find something that makes men happy, and ruin it — this is what Sarkeesian wants to do to the videogame industry, and it’s what Ms. Smothers wants to do to sex.


Feminism is an essentially negative ideology, destructive in its purposes. Unable to find happiness or success in their own lives, feminists blame men — the patriarchy — for their misery and failure, a rationalization that justifies their vindictive cruelty toward males. As might be expected, her hateful anti-male attitude does not make the feminist popular with men, and this is related to a phenomenon that Vox Day has observed: “SJWs always double down.” Feminism is a fool’s errand, the pursuit of “equality” through the destruction of everything wholesome and decent in society. As such, it does not attract the support of wise and virtuous women. When fools fail at whatever they attempt, their double-down reaction is predictable: The solution is more feminism!

This is why feminists interpret male hostility as evidence of success. The more men hate her, the more she knows she is on the path that leads to the promised utopia of equality. Feminism tells her that any man who disagrees with her is a misogynist — he hates women — and this implies, as its logical obverse, that the feminist can never be wrong about anything because (a) male opinions are always invalid, and (b) any woman who criticizes her is obviously deficient in feminist consciousness.

You see this in what we might call The Strong Woman Fallacy. Nothing is more predictable than that women who embrace an anti-male ideology will have difficulty forming successful romantic relationships with men, and yet their ideology gives feminists a self-justifying explanation: “My boyfriend broke up with me because men are intimidated by a strong woman.” No, ma’am, he broke up with you because you’re a deranged bitch, but you don’t want to deal with the truth, do you?

There is no failure that can’t be blamed on patriarchy. If her columns on queefing and oral sex don’t win her a Pulitzer? Yeah — patriarchy!
