Feminism: A Disaster for Men, Women, and Society as a Whole

I've written a lot about feminism on this blog. Just enter "feminism" in "Search this blog" over there on the top right and you can fmd a lot. I won't reprise any of it here, except for a couple of points. First, there are a lot of definitions of feminism, and the word's meaning, or at least emphasis, has changed a lot over the last century or so. Some take it to mean advocacy of legal equality of men and women in areas where actual sexual differences don't have an impact. That is, women of course can own property and vote, and do other things that might have been controversial in 1916 here and there, but which are now accepted as self-evident good ideas. But it also means that treatment of men and women can differ where actual sexual differences do have an impact. Men can be drafted, and women can't, etc. Most of us don't consider that variety of "feminism" to be feminism at all any more. But from there, the spectrum extends all the way from those who do want women eligible for the draft, to n-wave feminism, whatever it is right now, calling for either complete legal indifference to the male/female distinction, or, paradoxically, the legal elevation of female over male as a principle. And then, of course, you have paradoxist-feminism (I think I just coined a new word), which insists that women are so tough that they can be front-line cops, firemen firepersons, and infantry, but at the same time must be protected from microaggressions and given trigger warnings, lest the delicate creatures pass out from the vapors when some well-meaning poor schlub tells a woman she looks nice.

Also, as the quibcag points out, feminism is not exactly a phenomenon that does good things for women at the expense of men. Rather, it's a phenomenon that does horrible things to both sexes and to civilization in particular for the benefit of those who hate civilization or just see advantages for themselves in the havok it wreaks. It pretends to be pro-woman in much the same way that communism pretends to be pro-worker. You see, you're not really being kind to a girl when you sneer at her natural inclination to marry and become a mother, and bully her into trying to be a flamethrower-operator in the 82nd Airborne instead. (Disclaimer: I got out of the Army 45 years ago. For all I know, they don't even have flamethrower operators any more.) And you're also not doing her any favors when you teach her that she should put men down all the time and therefore end up either without a husband, or married to a useless wuss who likes to be put down all the time.

And beyond individual men and women, feminism, along with all the other idiotic -isms that are constantly lurching out at us, also has a crippling effect on the whole society, breaking down the people and institutions that make it function.  Over at [link], the Irish Savant has given this a lot of thought, and here is the result:

Feminising society: The cost

My coruscating wit, encyclopedic knowledge and mastery of facts are normally sufficient to inflict a humiliating defeat on my debate opponent(s). However, in a disconcerting departure from the norm I recently found myself hesitant and unconvincing when discussing the feminisation of society. I suppose I had just assumed the  negative effects to be so obvious that mentally constructing a case was subconsciously deemed unnecessary.  But now, having marshalled my thoughts I offer the following to you for consideration.

(1) Psychological damage to boys. Boys learn from an early age that maleness is a pathology requiring remedial action. Boys' natural competitive instincts get ruthlessly suppressed, they're forced to play cooperative games that they hate. Should they rebel they will probably get arrested and drugged into quiescence. As the Roman writer Juvenal observed 'drive nature out with a pitchfork and it returns with ever greater force'. *
Suppressed natural instincts will find an outlet one way or the other, and unfortunately in all kinds of unpredictable and unpleasant forms.

(2) Traditional family undermined: The evidence is all before us, the traditional family model - the mainstay of our civilisation - comes apart at the seams. The feminised society has swung the marriage partnership so much against men (via skewed welfare inducements and biased courts) that a recent Pew Research study in the USA found the level of men intending to marry at its lowest level since records began.  And why should they marry? The deck is stacked against them.  Add in the bogus theory that women can juggle career and family without familial consequences and we see the result: The proliferation of stressed out single mothers whose children are dumped into the care of strangers for most of their formative years.

(3) Productivity impaired: Replacing White males in the workplace with women, blacks and other assorted minorities - shoehorned into their positions purely on the basis of their minority status - undermines efficiency, quality and productivity, ultimately resulting in a lower standard of living generally.  The pathologising of maleness has also stunted men's natural competitiveness and drive, the qualities that built whole civilisations. As for the health & safety racket, an exemplar par excellence of workplace feminisation.....don't get me started. Other than to say that you won't find a more worthless collection of parasites this side of the HR department.

(4) Immigration: It's been said that men invade, women invite and the truth of this aphorism can be seen in a picture of any "Immigrants Welcome" reception committee. But it goes deeper. The feminisation of society dissipates in-group cohesion which, when allied to the overall feminist-driven emasculation of the White male, prostrates our societies before the swaggering black and Muslim armies now swarming all over our precious White lands

(5) Personal accountability:  What's that, you might ask. Because nobody's responsible or accountable for anything any more. Every fucking thing is a 'human right', free this, free that.  We even have the right not to be offended. A brutal murderer is excused because of a 'difficult childhood' and if you trip over your feet while drunk you can bank on financial compensation in settlement. The corrosive impact on broader society is severe.

Dysgenics: All of the previous characteristics combine to ensure that those least fit to procreate end up doing most of the procreating. If you're a stupid worthless lazy parasite the system works to ensure that the more you spawn the more you get courtesy of the productive class. Said class, having to pay for their houses, children's education, medical expenses etc. are driven to have small families in whom they invest heavily. Society thus becomes progressively more degraded, debased and impoverished, with a rapidly growing orc population facing off against their ever diminishing eloi prey.

A serious indictment I'm sure you'll agree. and there's little to offset it on the other side of the ledger. The growing absence of masculine virtues will rot the people's vigour and relentlessly undermine social cohesion. And this is surely the plan, to socially engineer the White male out of existence. Or at least to the point where they become, as per Bertrand Russel's warning, incapable of rebellion. "Gradually the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organised insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton."

Will White men fight back? Actually, will White women fight back? Because ultimately they're going to be the biggest losers. Andincreasing numbers of them are realising this. Many more suspect intuitively that the go grrrrlll dream they were sold might be turning into a nightmare.

In any event I believe we're close to the tipping point.
*I wanted to put the quote in the original Latin, so I Googled, but al I found was "Naturam expellas furca, tamen usque recurret.", attributed to Horace, not Juvenal. And English translations vary, from "You may drive out nature with a pitchfork, but it will return with even greater force," to "You may drive out Nature with a pitchfork, yet she still will hurry back." Now, all I know about ancient Rome and her philosophers I learned from watching I, Claudius, but I'm still pretty sure that Horace and Juvenal were two different people, so Irish Savant probably was quoting from memory what he learned in school, and mixed the writers up, I say that because I understand that Brits actually learn stuff like that in school, and learn to quote Caesar and such folks when we Americans are memorizing Martin Luther King speeches instead.
Quibcag: The first has an illustration by KukuruyoArt. The second quibcag's illustration is actually the Hetalia: Axis Powers (Axis Powers ヘタリア). version of Ukraine, who is usually pictured this way, as a farm girl with a pitchfork.
