>Okay checked it out. Women still marry up. Her reply in my opinion did not refute the article. Neither did the thread. Tony: what did you think?<Guess what Stally? I didn't even read it. Wendy's prose sounds like a monotone to me. No height, no depth, just a noise in the background that one doesn't even notice after awhile. After one paragraph of Wendy my eyes glaze over and I move on to something more stimulating to the nerve endings.A few thoughts about Wendy, Cathy and Christina:It was a common (mis) conception that, for example, a book like Who Stole Feminism would not and could not have even been published had it been written by a man. If a man had written it would have been ignored, minimized, disregarded and mocked. So up until about 2000 or 2001 women were the only ones given any kind of hearing about gender issues. Today the situation is quite different. There is more mainstream awareness that men have some legitimate gripes too. Now even radfems have to pay lip service to things like women who CHOOSE to drop out of the workforce for their own reasons. It is harder for them than it once was to make their case for discrimination stick in the court of public opinion. Wendy, Cathy and Christina have outlived their usefulness. Men no longer need them as mouthpieces.
I used to lurk around the iFeminist boards too. But then I realised that it wasn't doing my blood pressure any good.Think of it this way:Imagine you are sitting in a car parked on a road on a steep hill. Suddenly, up the hill, the brakes fail on another parked car and it starts to roll down towards you.What do you do?The car is rolling down the hill, by the time it reaches your car it will have picked up enough speed that it will crash into your car with enough force to seriously damage it.What do you do in this circumstance? You can't control the moving car. All you have control over is your car. The answer is that you start to drive up the hill towards the car, and let it hit your car at a low speed before its picked up too much momentum.Now this is EXACTLY the strategy that I beleive the iFeminist style feminists are employing. They can see the men's movement, or at least an anti-feminist backlash, starting to come down the road at them. They can't exactly make it disapear. but if they quickly move up and meet it half-way down the road then they can kill its momentum and stop it moving any further and doing their interests any serious damage.What I'm saying here is that they want to keep their "Feminism" - whatever that means to them - and they don't like the idea that the lies of feminism being exposed mean that their "F word" is under threat.So they are quickly moving a little way in our direction, just to kill our momentum. But a little way is not enough for us.Why should I kiss the feet of these women just because they have graciously deigned to offer me half of my rights as a Human back - on the provisio that I promise to be a good boy, and not ever threaten their interests again?iFeminism is an ornimental garden. An artificial enclosed space that the women pretend is a true representation of the real world. It is a place where they can make-believe that their feminist conceits are really true after all. Where they can pretend things like women don't really desire a man of greater stature than themselves. If you want the Tinkerbell of feminism to survive then clap your hands! Oh yes, say you beleive! If we all say it loud enough then it will be real!The artifice is only maintained due to a very strict editorial policy on their discussion forum where descenting opinions are quickly edited out, stamped on hysterically; where threads are regularly frozen and moved around. And whatever is left is not nature, but an artificial, warped similacrum. Its not a place for discussion, but a masterbatory last ditch effort to prop up a dying philosophical label that deserves to die like the foul creature that is it.Not so much Tinkerbell, but more like Tinkerhell.
Can you please wear a sign that says something like, "Stay away from me if you are female- I am unable to differentiate between individuals." or whatever sentiment would be appropriate so that we women know not to bother trying to get to know you either? Thanks.
