You know what we rational people have been observing about feminism for years, don’t you?
It’s simple, really: Feminism claims to be all about equality, but, it’s really been relentlessly trying to make the claim that women are superior to men, and that feminism is actually about establishing a caste society in which women are on the top.
You and I hear it all the time. All the snide remarks, the off-color jokes that men supposedly used to direct at women, are strictly verboten now, but those very same comments when directed at men are just fine and, in fact, uproariously funny.
I spent a comical day several months back in a roughly half-and-half mixed-sex group of a dozen of so people, working on a wiring harness for a piece of equipment. One of the women spent the entire six hours making comments like, “Oh, that doesn’t work? A man must have made it.” And, “This is all messed up. You can tell a man did it.” Or, “This is really stupid. Must have been designed by a man.”
Over the six hours, she made many, many dozens of such comments. And at each one, everyone in the room, man and woman, laughed. The men laughed somewhat uncomfortably, because they knew full well that to make the exact same remarks, only about women, would be an HR incident, with probable firing as a consequence.
The whole thing was a remarkable display of the extent to which people soak up the dominant zeitgeist and, knowingly or not — generally not — incorporate it into their daily lives.
The current zeitgeist has nothing to do with women’s equality, and everything to do with an imagined superiority of women.(1)
Where is all this leading? Simple: the Sexual Weirdism Grievance Industry is ascending. It’ll possibly eclipse feminism, at least for a short time, and its goal is not “tolerance,” or “respect.” No, its goal is a zeitgeist in which sexual weirdists — you know, the “LGBTQIAPK community”(2) — are actually superior to the sexually normal.
You can pick a reason: either it’ll be that all the long-time oppression they imagine they’ve undergone has made saintly creatures out of them. Or, it’ll be that their inner pain and struggle have led to greater emotional and intellectual depth , or some other whack-a-doodle tommyrot.
Mark my words, though: as surely as feminism was always about women’s superiority, the Sexual Weirdism Grievance Industry (The SWGI) is all about bending the zeitgeist to incorporate the notion that the sexual weirdists are actually superior to the sexually normal.
(1) I said, “imagined,” because to try to make an argument either way — that one sex is superior or inferior to the other — is ridiculous. There are too many apples-to-oranges comparisons in the exercise to make it valid.
(2) Here’s an interesting snippet from someone who actually believes that the “LGBTQIAPK community” is a legitimate thing:
This is my official petition to add the letters “P” and “K” to the more widely accepted LGBTQIA acronym, and to emphasize other “A” and “G” identities. This would make room not only for myself, but for all those who already identify as genderqueer, androgynous, asexual, pansexual, polyamorous, and those who are part of the kink community. Perhaps seeing those additional letters will help some of the folks out there who haven’t been exposed to these identities understand themselves a bit better and feel they too have a place in the queer community.
The blithering nitwit who wrote that gobbledygook really thinks it should be: “the LGGBTQQIAAPPK comunity!”
Someone (really: a whole bunch of someones) has way too much time on her hands, and needs to find a real job. If you read the feature under the above link you find out that the author, one Lyla Cicero (cool name!):
Lyla Cicero has a doctorate in clinical psychology, and focuses on relationships, sexual minorities, and sex therapy. Lyla is a feminist, LGBTQIAPK-affirmative, sex-positive blogger at UnderCoverintheSuburbs.com, where she writes about expanding cultural notions of identity, especially those surrounding gender, sexual orientation, motherhood, and sexuality. Follow her on Twitter @UndrCvrNSuburbs.
In other words, she’s never wanted to work for a living.
You read it here: She’s an “LGBTQIAPK-affirmative, sex-positive blogger” and “writes about expanding cultural notions of identity, especially those surrounding gender, sexual orientation, motherhood, and sexuality”
And I used to think I could throw the bull!!!
