Far right misogynist Christopher Chantrill writes a repulsive column blaming women for Donald Trump’s impeachment. The “logic” is ridiculous. Men, you see, compete in the public square by insulting one another. But women, and “pajama boys,” are just too sensitive and they’re really impeaching Trump because he’s too mean, and thus more manly.
The public square, he argued, had been created by men for men. But with women coming into the public square, they would transform it to suit “a more feminine sensibility.” Ever since then my mind has been pondering what this means.
And then suddenly this week I realized. It is not working, this public square with a more feminine sensibility. What’s more it will never work. And this has to do with the radically different way in which men and women experience “honor.”…
Now, the whole point of today’s public square is to adapt the male honor culture, in which a man knows he must defend his reputation for bravery to the death, to a modern civic culture in which men exchange insults and establish status in what I call an Insult Culture. Thus, if you will, men now prove their bravery by the brilliance of their ideas and their devastating repartee….But women hate it. That is why educated suburban women hate President Trump’s Twitter insults.
Why is that? It is because women do not have a Culture of Insult. They have a Culture of Complaint.
In other words, women don’t confront someone that has insulted them. No. They complain about it to a third person, as in “I can’t believe President Trump tweeted that.” And the complaint ripples through the “hive mind” of the community of women, and sooner or later the culprit is named, shamed, and shunned. Or, as we now say, “impeached.”
Do you see what I am saying? I am saying that the whole cancel culture, from “he’s a racist” to “he hurt my feelings” is a girl thing. It issues from the fact that woman’s honor derives from her reputation for chastity, for being a good little girl, for always doing what teacher says.
Okay. Not just girls, but Pajama Boys too. So don’t call me a sexist, you sexists.
Yeah, he thinks the same thing about sissy boys who act like women, so he’s totally not being sexist. It’s women and men who act like women, so get off his back. You’re the real sexist for calling him sexist. This is just pure, undistilled misogyny. He and Jesse Lee Peterson would get along really well.
