It is now a daily event, if not twice a day event, I get an e-mail about the latest antics of feminism and female leftists. It is so common and so bizarre that not only am I no longer shocked, but I come to expect it. I also tire of writing about it because it's as if you're getting bum rushed with a tidal wave of non-stop, never-ending, feminist crazy and hate. Merely pointing it out and citing it as an example of just how evil and damaging these people are seemingly does nothing to stop them, let alone raise the country's awareness to this genuine and real cancer in society.
Because of this I've eschewed highlighting the latest "crazy feminist" and dedicated my time to more productive things. However, as my brain is wont to do, I looked past the crazy and finally figured out what is driving it. And it is the female desire for attention.
Take a look at the latest or more common "antics" of feminism.
There's your standard slut walks.
There's the obsession with creating new genders
There's Lena Dunham's child molestation which feminists have the gall to defend.
And let's not forget the "zaniest" antic yet, menstrual painting.
Any sane person who can remove him/herself from the political horseblinders, step back and look at these things will accurately and truthfully assess these things for what they are - a mental illness.
These are not sane women "expressing their opinion," or "liberating themselves." They are mentally damaged individuals that need (but are perhaps beyond) help. The only reason they get away with it is they hide behind "feminism" and people's fear if they criticize them they'll be accused of (GASP!) sexism. And so society must tolerate this scourge on itself.
However, if we look under the hood we see what's really going on.
Women, feminist or not, are driven primarily by one thing - attention. Attention from society so that it may secure them social acceptance and security within society as well as the resources from a male provider.
Mentally healthy women do this by being good at socializing, perhaps pursuing a career in a legitimate field, but when it comes to finance and romance, they secure a husband by being as pretty as possible, staying in shape, and using their beauty. This take effort and hard work.
Being attentive to her husband
Offering something of value to anybody who would court/marry/interact with her
They know it's an exchange and if they're to succeed in life, they will have to work at it, offering something of value that is in demand.
However, mentally UNHEALTHY women fail to do this. They do not want to put in the effort to be beautiful, attractive, productive or just generally offering something of value to society. They are narcissists believing they are entitled to the same standards of living and success as their mentally healthy, harder-working counterparts. And this goes a long way explaining why:
Feminists tend to be ugly
Feminists tend to be angry
Feminists (despite their claim of independence) invariably demand some form of government support or charity
They are just too damn lazy to work out, work hard, let alone be altruistic enough to think about what other people want.
Now, the problem facing feminists, despite their demands (and relative success in getting) for government money, is that society, especially men just refuse to go along. Yes, the government can tax me, but I don't have to hire you and your worthless Gender Studies Degree. Yes, the government can make me pay for your fatherless child's school lunch, but it can't make me date you. And so while they may receive a government check, that is all they get. The rest of society rejects them.
The problem for feminists is that deep down inside, no matter what they tell themselves and how many mind-warping classes they take, they're still women. And women are genetically programmed to live off of attention. And since society is not giving them any "good attention" (in the form of men being attracted to them, being invited to clubs, getting job offers in real careers, etc.) they have to go and get "bad attention." And thus their insane, mentally-ill antics.
In being so outlandish with their demands, actions, behaviors and antics, they automatically beget attention from society. Of course it's not of a healthy or good variety - it's disgust and revulsion. But at least it's attention. Add to it the fact this attention is critical of their antics, it plays directly into their deluded world of being "oppressed" and "patriarchy," giving credit and agency to their one and only thing they have in life - their religion, feminism. But no matter what elaborate mental acrobatics they execute, let us be clear what all this is - nothing but attention whoring.
This leads me to the final conclusion of my little epiphany:
What if we were to just not pay any attention to the latest disgusting, "cutting-edge" attention-whoring gimmick feminists come up with next? Instead of ROK, and Uncle Bern linking to or talking about some idiot article at XO Jane or Salon we just talked philosophy instead? Instead of me linking to another spoiled, delusional 25 year old Manhattan nepotist daughter feminist writing for NBC, I just threw up some economic charts instead? What if we just took out all the oxygen in the room and deprived these feminists of the attention they so desperately desire?
No doubt this is impossible as in a country of 300 million "menstrual painting" is going to prove too tempting to resist criticizing for 275 million. But my larger point is one of accurately identifying the problem so that we may find an effective solution. Shaming them only fans their flames and allows them to self-rationalize being a "victim." Ignoring them, however, deprives them of the only interaction they get from the rest of the sane, healthy, and happy world. Leaving them with a government check and each other to squander their lives on.
