Errors of Logic and Rhetoric

Posted on | May 9, 2018 | 1 Comment


Robyn Pennacchia condemns “male privilege”:

Women are also rejected. Women also spend their teen years pining after dreamy boys who will never love them back. You don’t see us going around murdering people over it. You don’t see us setting up internet communities for the purpose of talking about how evil and shallow men are for not taking us to pound town. Women don’t go around killing men who don’t like them, because if you’re a woman in this society, a boy not liking you is the least of your problems. It is nowhere near the shittiest thing you’re going to be expected to “just deal with” in your life — one of those things being the fact that we are expected to “just deal with” how men are sometimes going to murder a bunch of people because they felt entitled to romantic attention from women. We are expected to “deal with” that, while never bringing up the terms “male privilege” or “male entitlement” or “toxic masculinity” and why those things so often lead to mass murder, on account of how that might really hurt the feelings of the men who have been gracious enough to not go on killing sprees. . . .

You can read the whole thing. Let me ask the commenters to discuss the flaws in Ms. Pennacchia’s logic and rhetoric. While I could do this at length — her errors are obvious to me — there are other things I’d like to accomplish today, and I get tired of explaining what’s wrong with the feminist rhetoric of “equality.” So have at it, readers, and please remember to check your spelling and grammar. No point bothering to “check your privilege,” feminists hate you no matter what you say or do.
