I often find myself wondering in life just exactly how other people see and perceive the world. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to the minds and perceptions of the Social Justice Warriors. There’s a certain inherent detachment from reality that I find hard to comprehend and I can’t help but wonder if they truly believe the things that they say or if they are simply unwilling, due to some flaw in their makeup, to comprehend the world the way the rest of us do.
In other words you can’t tell if they’re liars or idiots. Wouldn’t it be easier to just say that outright?
Anyways this brings us to feminist “academic” ( a word that I amazed you can use with a straight face) Germaine Greer. Ms. Greer was recently featured in an article in the dailymail where she told the experience of women and the horrors they are subjected to online.
This is going to be one of those days, isn’t it?
“Germaine Greer has claimed that women are worse off than ever because of the proliferation of online pornography and the torrent of abuse they have to endure on social media such as Twitter.”
……………………………..Do you want to handle this?
Sure, why not.
So women are more worse off than ever, you say? You mean they are worse off than in the Middle East? Worse off than in the past where, at least you claim, women were treated as property and rape was considered normal? At a time when women receive much lighter prison sentences, do better in school, have more life options, live longer, almost never die or get injured on the job, etc., women are more worse off than ever? Pray tell, what great evil causes this and endangers all things woman?
Pornography and Twitter.
I really wish I could make this stuff up.
“The Australian academic delivers her damning verdict in a BBC TV documentary – Blurred Lines: The New Battle Of The Sexes – which looks at the threats of rape and violence directed towards women online as well as the ‘objectification’ of women in violent computer games and sexually explicit pop videos.”
Rape and sex. It always has to be about rape and sex.
The obsession is very strange. It’s almost Catholic in how much they obsess over sexual matters.
Yes.Yes she is.
“In 2003, The Beautiful Boy was published, an art history book about the beauty of teenage boys, which is illustrated with 200 photographs of what The Guardian called “succulent teenage male beauty”. Greer described the book as an attempt to address modern women’s apparent indifference to the teenage boy as a sexual object and to “advance women’s reclamation of their capacity for, and right to, visual pleasure” (Greer 2003). The photograph on the cover was of 15-year old Björn Andrésen in his character of Tadzio in the film Death in Venice (1971). The actor has been quoted by journalists as complaining about the picture’s use.”
Soooooo, just to be clear, she wrote a book about women getting off to images of young boys. Put a half-naked fifteen year old on the cover, apparently against his wishes, and is complaining about the sexual objectification of women?
I think I just felt a brain cell die screaming.
Then I probably shouldn’t mention to you about the time when she was on the progam ‘J’accuse’ – youthism’ in 1992 and tried to proposition schoolboys in order to show them an appreciation for older women?
No……no…..no you should not. If you’ll excuse me, I have to go and plunge my skull into anti-matter right now.
Huh,looks like I finally won one.
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, And they’re like It’s better than yours, Damn right it’s better than yours, I can teach you, But I have to charge
“Men are now more aware of women because women keep pushing themselves in.‘Nowadays women expect to share men’s lives, they want to do the same work, they want to play the same games, they want to have the same social life, and I think it’s driving men nuts. And the result would seem to me to be that men are even less tolerant of women than they were before.”
Yes, Ms. Greer, you’re correct. Just not in the way that you think you are. You see, it’s not that women expect to share men’s lives. It’s that feminist women expect women to share men’s lives. If women wanted to do the same work as men they would do it, as some do. If they wanted to play the same games they would do it, as some do. If they wanted to have the same social life they would do it, as some do. However the general majority of them don’t want that. Which is evidenced by the fact that they don’t make those choices. They choose to do different jobs. They choose to play different games. They choose to organize their social lives differently. It is not that men are becoming less tolerant of women. It is that they are becoming less tolerant of women like you. The ones who go to the work spaces, gaming networks, social clubs etc, that men (and again some women) have been utilizing for a long time and then demand that everything be changed to accommodate the needs of some theoretical woman who never before used those spaces, and likely never will.
Women are only pushing in because you and those like you are standing behind them shoving. Which is why you get the backlash you get from both sexes. It’s why there are so many women who refuse to identify themselves as feminists, because they understand what you are trying to do. You are trying to use them to gain more power and influence for yourselves and your group, and in the same instance you are hurting their fathers, their brothers, their children, their husbands, their lovers, with this toxic ideology. For example:
“Now if men have always needed women to be in a subservient, filial, ancillary position, when they [women] stand up and call attention to themselves, it produces reactions which are difficult to manage.”
