(Modern) Feminists Are Stupid

So there I was, sipping on Nyquil, when it was brought to my attention that the video I made had approximately a bajillion views, which written in numbers looks something like 3,330, give or take a few zeros. So I said to myself, “Self. This might mean a few thousand/million newcomers to your blog!” to which my self responded, “Hey! Brilliant deduction, big guy!” So I figured, goodness, what better way to welcome such lost and frightened individuals then to offend a large group of people! Brilliant! The only question remaining was which group, for there are many, nay a veritable plethora of silly groups that need offending. Feminists or The-World-Is-Overpopulated-Ahhhernites? Thanks to the marvelous freedom of the unpublished publication, the answer is both. So we’ll start with the former, for I am a truly believer in that timeless maxim, “Ladies first.” 

Recently, and on more than one occasion, women paraded topless through city streets, so as to protest a hideously unequal treatment society deals out: that it is sometimes appropriate for a man to be shirtless, but never appropriate for women to follow suit. There is, of course, the glaring fact that a parade of topless women – however wonderfully Amazonian – is not the best method to make a publicly bare-breasted woman appear normal. When you want something widely accepted by the populace – like potatoes, haircuts and polo-shirts – you hardly make a parade out of it. Besides, there are very few parades of topless men, and even fewer that are considered normal by any stretch of the imagination. But while the event failed to impact the world’s unwritten dress-code, it does neatly sum up the whole problem of the feminist movement. That is to say: men took pictures. The leaders of the parades were besides themselves with this strange and offensive discovery; that men, against all odds and hopeful predictions, behave like men; cat-calling, oggling, and all the rest.

My point is this: Feminism is not a victorious bow of Woman Accomplished to the applause of the world, but a bow of defeat, by a minority of women, to the lusts of men. Woman has been historically more moral than man, transcending his primitive nature with her primitive grace, meeting his fantasies of lust with her realities of children, and checking – and checkmating – his passions with her own; control, commitment and humility utterly destroying man’s vague need for a drink – not to undercut man’s delicate ego by too much. On the other hand, the modern feminism effectively exalts men, women pressing their noses to the ground and saying: To your lusts we promote contraception and abortion, that your lusts might increase and our power over them decrease. To your pleasure we lower ourselves to the level of men, to be treated as such. And in the current case I speak of: We admit that our chests are no more attractive then your’s, and will thus no longer bother to cover them. You win.

And unfortunately, there are men who take full advantage of this surrender. Behind every “male feminist” there is the grin of a manipulative jerk. Is it any suprise that the greatest supporters of abortion are not women, but men from 18 to 30 years of age? That contraception is almost entirely the burden of women? This modern feminism is failure, and it is the worst kind that win. But being a guy, I guess I’m not actually allowed to say any of that. Oh well.

That’s all. It’s probably no big deal anymore, modern feminists are dying out, being replaced by real feminists.

    Okay, so it's not even illegal for them to be topless there…so what are they "protesting?" Geeze. Dummies.I was done with modern feminism once I realized that all it is is an attempt to make women into men without penises (sometimes, literally). No thanks. Reading what PJPII had to say about REAL feminism was extremely liberating.

      I don’t want you to support us just because we are male. I feel that we are brainwashing you, and I want you to support feminists because you are female and it is mostly a female movement. You must feel updated to the sense that the feminism of modern society has become perversely biased, but who knows? You might change your mind the next day.

    Thank You! I have no love for the pathetic excuse for feminism today. I believe in equality, equal pay for equal work. I am gratified that I have the right to vote, I believe that men should take part in raising the children (changing diapers and the like.) I enjoy the fact that I can chose to stay home with my children or work, having the same opportunities as my husband in the work place.It is such a pity that "modern feminism" devalues women so much. Women are mer sex objects, and the misinformed woman believes that the best she can have is to sexually satisfy the man she is with at the moment and she mistakenly calls that "sexual freedom". What a pathetic world we as women have.

    Hey I'm one of those new followers in the last week. Great blog. You're a riot! I completely agree with modern feminism. Hey I had my battles with the feminists in college long ago, probably before you were born. I enjoyed the video too. Thanks.

    Marc, paragraph 3 is really good stuff. Some friends and I are doing a panel on Woman's Role in Society and the Church at the local Newman Center this week, and I'm definitely going to have to bring up the example of the ridiculous topless parade. You said this so well. Good work!

    Thank you for sharing the "Genesis" video! Gotta love technology – and pro-life messages that aren't "Pro-Life." I completely agree with your feminist comments. And that topless thing – I *actually* had a nightmare last night that I was in a restaurant with friends and suddenly realized I had no top on. I can't imagine choosing to go topless. Odd to then see this youtube video today. And actually, I've been promoting female modesty on FB lately. Why would anyone want to overexpose themselves, thereby taking away the beauty and mystery meant only for one's spouse? Sorry to ramble…guess I should blog on the topic. :)

    Hi Marc, I enjoyed this post. Feminists tend to run around worrying about floods just as the forest fire gets out of control. However I'm going to argue with you about some of the comments you made in that third paragraph. Just cause I consider myself a feminist ;) http://splatness.blogspot.com/2011/02/friendly-neighborhood-feminist.html

  • Manda

    ok obviously I'm stalking your blog. I don't know if it's because I'm pregnant right now but I loved that video.

  • Kyle

    MFW you said all this just to get some pussy. Nice work.

  • Little Boy Blue

    I clicked on the link to the video and read some of the top comments. A lot of people the “issue” at it’s face value; that it is an “unequal injustice and they should be allowed. Womens’ rights!”
    While what they is noble, I guess or whatever, they miss what you have said here.
    While the human body is a beautiful thing, I dare say that the female figure is even more so, and if this were to become commonplace (and even if men didn’t lust, but that’s a stretch), the appreciation of their beauty would fade away.

  • Joe

    So, if I’m not mistaken (and I probably am) you’re saying that feminism is a tool of the patriarchy.

    • newenglandsun

      I don’t think that’s what he’s saying. I think he’s saying that *modern* feminism is *giving into* the patriarchy.

  • newenglandsun

    *Gasp!* You anti-women misogynist!
    Sorry, too much sarcasm already today.

  • newenglandsun

    This is too sophisticated for the feminists.
