Fergie’s ‘M.I.L.F.$’ video: Objectify yourself, little girls! (feminists silent…again)

Fergi Milf Money

One of the constant drumbeats of modern American feminism is that “rape culture” exists and that it is perpetuated by “violent masculinity.” Newspapers like the Guardian, for example, will even write about “gangs of men” who rape women on the streets of London (even thought they never bother to explore if those “gangs of men” share a common denominator with the “gangs of men” who rape women in Germany). What is rarely, if ever, seen in these debates is condemnation of female celebrities whose body of work screams to girls everywhere, “You too can objectify yourself for the sexual gratification of men!”

Fergie’s new ‘M.I.L.F. $’ music video is a perfect example of a clarion call for objectification that masquerades as “female empowerment.”

Entertainment Weekly reported Friday:

Fergie has finally dropped her much-anticipated “M.I.L.F. $” video.

Released Friday, the star-studded visual features celebrity “MILFs” Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, and Ciara as they act as neighbors in “Milfville” while the “milfman” drives around delivering milk. They hang out at a diner with stripper poles, a spa, and a classroom. They also pour milk on themselves and take selfies. “Got MILF?” they ask. …

“Changing the acronym to Moms I’d Like To Follow is about empowering women who do it all,” says Fergie in a statement. “They have a career, a family, and still find the time to take care of themselves and feel sexy. With a wink of course :).”

Yes, little girls will want to “follow” Kim “sex tape” Kardashian, Fergie, and other celebrities because nothing can be more “empowering” than squeezing into skin-tight outfits and slowly pouring milk over your backside.

Fergi Milf M objectification

Here are some lyrics:

“Heard you’re in the mood for a little milkshake. Welcome to the dairy-dutchess love factory. I can whip it up, fix you up, straight away. Coming in the front door, leaving out the back door, rip it, flip it, hey!

We’ve been working at your service to give it to you. Didn’t mean to make you nervous, you mother-f***a.”

If the collective influence these women have over young developing minds wasn’t so profound, then their “art” would be somewhat amusing, albeit in the way people historically gawked at street performers with chimpanzees in the late 1800s.

Kim Kardashian

If one were to agree with the premise that rape culture exists, then what would be most responsible?

  • Option 1: Testosterone levels in adult males.
  • Option 2: A constant bombardment of videos featuring scantily-clad celebrities humping the air to tribal beats and bathing in milk tubs, all while singing different variations of, “heard you’re in the mood for a little milkshake. Welcome to the dairy-dutchess love factory. I can whip it up, fix you up, straight away. Coming in the front door, leaving out the back door, rip it, flip it, hey”?

American feminists have zero moral authority because they consistently ignore the real enemies of empowerment to attack good men who disagree with them on public policy issues. It is the Kim Kardashians and Fergies of the world who do real damage to feminists’ stated cause, and until that is earnestly addressed they will not be taken seriously.

Liz Heron, HuffPo executive editor, shows what’s wrong with modern feminism in one tweet

Liz Heron Twitter

Liz Heron, the executive editor over at HuffPo, did the world a huge favor on Friday — she demonstrated why so many people have a problem with modern feminism.

“Notice anything about this @HuffingtonPost editors meeting” the editor wrote while adding emojis that screamed “girl power!”

The internet responded with predictable snark, but the issue demands more attention than that. What viewers witness in a single tweet is that feminism is a congeries of contradictory rules and regulations, which allow elites to wallow in self-congratulation for behavior that would earn others condemnation.

Ask yourself the following questions about Ms. Heron’s tweet:

  • If women should be judged on their merits, then why is HuffPo essentially asking readers to cheer the amount of estrogen it packed into a room?
  •  Should HuffPo be applauded for its female editors, or scolded for its lack of racial diversity?
  • If feminism is about equal opportunity, then why tweet an image that seems to relish the idea of excluding men?
  • If making an assumption about gender based on physical appearance is frowned upon, then why engage in “you go, girl!” tweets that encourage such behavior?

Personally, I do not care what a room full of editors looks like as long as they produce good content. HuffPo generally reads like it’s run by 25-year-old women, so on some level it’s nice to know my suspicions were correct. If that’s the vibe the website is going for, then great — but those same women should probably zip it when they run across a website that unabashedly celebrates the male minds behind a male-oriented website.

The weird thing about identity politics is that its foot soldiers litter the cultural landscape with social justice mines and then eventually step on their own munitions. Instead of learning a lesson or two after their credibility explodes into a thousands pieces, they go right back to laying mines. Independent voters should keep all of this in mind next time they read a HuffPo political piece that translates: “Vote for Hillary Clinton because she wears a bra.”

Hillary Clinton pairing up with all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ cast … because pandering

Ghostbusters 2016

Imagine a scenario in 2012 where Mitt Romney decided to appear on Jimmy Kimmel with the cast of The Expendables 2. Jimmy then tweeted, “The entire cast of The Expendables is here next week and now @MittRomney is coming, too! Get your Man Cards ready.”

You would probably lose a ton of respect for Mr. Romney for a.) blatantly pandering to a certain demographic of men, and b.) doing so when nothing about him says “cigar chomping, beer-chugging dude.”

Now consider the following tweet from Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday:

“The entire cast of Ghostbusters is here next week and now @HillaryClinton is coming, too! Get your Woman Cards ready.”

Sad, isn’t it? It screams, “Vote for Hillary because she’s a woman. Seriously. I mean it.”

Ellen DeGeneres Hillary Clinton Ghostbusters

The weird thing about Mrs. Clinton’s May 25 appearance with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones is that no one has apparently warned her: Ghostbusters is literally the most reviled movie trailer in YouTube’s history.

The Hollywood Reporter covered the infamous milestone April 30:

Not only does it have the most dislikes for a trailer on the social platform, but it also makes the top 25 most disliked videos overall.

Things are not boding well for director Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters based on the film’s first official trailer on YouTube.

Released March 3, the trailer, viewed 29.2 million times and counting, is the most disliked movie trailer in YouTube history, according to “MyTop100Videos” channel’s “Most Disliked Videos” list that was last updated April 16.

Mrs. Clinton, a pale political imitation of her husband, will link herself with a cast that will likely be a pale imitation of the original Ghostbusters. It’s the kind of pandering that only a desperate candidate would resort to because someone who was confident would want the stage all to herself.

If Hillary Clinton were confident that she represented the majority of women, then there would be no need for “Get your Woman Card ready” tweets by Ellen DeGeneres.

If Hillary Clinton were running a smooth campaign, then the cast of Ghostbusters would appear the next day and talk about her for most of the interview.

If Hillary Clinton had decent political instincts, then she would not appear with any cast that would allow critics a segue into discussions about “ghosts” that haunt the former secretary of state at night.

Again, I would be highly insulted if a male candidate showed up on a talk show with a bunch of “manly men” as guests because … “bros before hoes in the voting booth, bro!” I can only hope that millions of intelligent women feel the same way about the Clinton campaign’s shameless efforts with female voters.

Happy Marriage 101: Don’t raise your voice, yell at your spouse

I was eating lunch with my wife a few days ago when she said that in hindsight she is thankful for a rule I established early on in our relationship. I told her many years ago that I would never raise my voice with her, but that I would expect the same treatment in return. I said I was willing to end the relationship if she could not abide by the rule.

This seems like a common sense condition, but it does not take long to realize that many people do not follow it — even in public. In fact, some people claim that yelling adds “passion” to a relationship. I would argue that screaming at a spouse and calling the ordeal an aphrodisiac is a form of denial; it is dysfunction masquerading as love.

When a person raises his or her voice in an argument, it is a sign of desperation. It indicates a loss of control. The couple immediately enters an emotional realm that is conducive to mental and physical violence, which is why it is exponentially embarrassing if the man is the one who raised his voice first.

Yelling at someone does not add legitimacy to an argument, but for some reason many individuals think increased decibel-levels magically perform such a function.

Raising your voice does denote anger, but a healthier way of conveying that feeling is to simply say, “I am angry.” If you say what you mean and mean what you say with your spouse on a regular basis, then that statement alone will be treated with the seriousness it deserves.

As was already mentioned, a man should never yell at his significant other. The vast majority of men are physically stronger than the women in their life, so ending a disagreement by introducing the specter of violence — even if the man has never physically harmed his wife — is  cowardly, wrong, and ipso facto detrimental to the long-term health of the relationship.

“Anybody can become angry,” Aristotle wrote. “That is easy. But to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the the right purpose, and in the right way — that is not … easy.”

Anger is a natural feeling, and in general there is nothing wrong with feeling anger. The key is to channel that anger in healthy ways. If you struggle with this task, then I suggest checking out the book “Overcoming Sinful Anger,” by Rev. T.G. Morrow. It is a short book, but one filled with advice that will leave you happier and healthier if you take his words to heart.

Feminism, ‘The View’-style: Michelle Collins, Joy Behar mock Fiorina’s face

Carly Fiorina CNBC debate

The great thing about modern “feminists” with a microphone is that they regularly discredit their own brand of feminism. Take the women of “The View,” for instance. They spent Thursday cackling with each other over the face of Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.

Collins: She looked demented! Her mouth did not downturn one time.  **audience claps and laughs**

Behar: I wish it was a Halloween mask. I’d love that.

Let us flashback to Sept. 10, when they got up on a moral pedestal to lecture Donald Trump for doing the same thing.

Behar: “You talked about Carly Fiorina in Rolling Stone magazine, and you said, “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? Are you making fun of her looks, Donald? Because I know you don’t like it…”

Trump: “Not at all, no. I’m talking about the persona, Joy. …”

Behar: “Then why don’t you talk about her brains instead of her face?” **audience claps**

It is interesting how that works: When the (liberal) women of “The View” lecture a man on disparaging a woman’s physical appearance, they are applauded. When the (liberal) women of “The View” say mean and disgusting things about a woman’s physical appearance, they are applauded.

Telling.

Here’s a pop quiz: Do you know who treats women the worst in America?

Answer: Other women.

It is highly ironic watching Joy Behar — caked with 10 pounds of makeup to look her best — say Carly Fiorina’s face looks like a Halloween mask. If you put a mole on Joy’s nose and a broom between her legs, would she look like a witch? You decide.

Joy Behar

Here we have Michelle Collins — after professional makeup artists got her ready for television. What would she look like without makeup? Use your imagination.

Michelle Collins

Finally, we have Whoopi Goldberg of “rape-rape” infamy.

Whoopi Goldberg

These “feminists” do not care about treating women right as much as they care about getting congratulated for whatever they say and do.

When they tear down another woman — they want to cheered. When they chastise a man for tearing down another woman — they wanted to be cheered. They have zero moral authority, and should be relentlessly called out on their hypocrisy every time it rears its ugly head.

‘F-Bombs For Feminism’ succeeds in blowing up last bit of credibility for modern U.S. feminists

FCKH8 2By now most people have heard of the new “F-Bombs for Feminism” video making the rounds. It’s a 2.5-minute commercial for FCKH8, the “for-profit T-shirt company with an activist heart,” which features little children spouting debunked liberal claptrap in between strings of swearing fits.

An excerpt of the video includes:

“What the fuck? I’m not some pretty fucking helpless princess in distress. I’m pretty fucking powerful! […] Here’s some words more fucked up than the word ‘fuck’: ‘Pay inequality.’ Women are paid 23 percent less than men for the exact same fucking work. […] Pay up mother fucker!”

Luckily, viewers who wonder “What kind of adults at FCKH8 are so ironically blinded by hate that they would exploit children for political gain and profit?” get to see two of them. One even wears a “This is what a feminist looks like” t-shirt.

FCKH8 feminism“This is what a feminist looks like.” Indeed. It also happens to be what unadulterated, uncensored modern American liberalism looks like — and it is ugly.

Liberals make fun of the tea party and devoutly-religious Americans (I have already stated that I am not particularly fond of Mike Huckabee), but at least both of those groups have the moral decency to refrain from using children in such a repugnant manner. Would you rather sit down and debate the tea party — a group that came to D.C. for large-scale protests and left the National Mall cleaner than they found it — or members of FCKH8, who see nothing wrong with dressing a little boy up in a princess costume and telling him to deliver expletives on demand?

FCKH8 boyWhile women are being turned into sex slaves in the Middle East for Islamic State head-choppers, American liberal feminists are using their limited time, money and resources to argue that their gender is too stupid to successfully engage in salary negotiations. While Iranian women are executed for killing their alleged rapists, American feminists are busy stopping Ayaan Hirsi Ali — a victim of female genital mutilation — from speaking to college students.

It takes a depraved and disgusting soul to request a script like “F-Bombs For Feminism” and hire children to star in the finished product. Unfortunately, those are the souls trying to shape our culture.

If you lived inside a giant toilet your whole life, then you probably would not truly understand the disgusting nature of your existence. Similarly, FCKH8 and its ideological allies hope to slowly cover the American cultural landscape in intellectual feces in the hopes that, one day, no one will remember a time when they didn’t wallow in filth.

If FCKH8 and its employees want to be the face of modern liberalism, then give it to them. Make sure to tell all your friends about the organization, and then make a reasoned, dignified, and principled case for conservatism. Future generations will thank you.

Feminists attack Spider-Woman covers and gamers while Lopez, Beyonce, and Minaj objectify themselves

Say that you’re a raging feminist and you’re upset about “rape culture, male patriarchy, male privilege,” and a whole host of other issues that your Gender Studies professor talks about on a regular basis. You want to change the cultural landscape, but you have limited resources. Do you go after the male gamers who just want to play Watch Dogs in peace? Do you go after aging male comic book artists who create variant covers that might sell a couple thousand copies? Or do you go after multi-platinum millionaire female entertainers who grace the covers of countless magazines, get significant radio play, and air time on national television shows?

The answer, of course, is to ignore very real singers and entertainers objectifying themselves under the banner of feminism while going after men whose hobbies deal almost exclusively in fantasy. Why? Because they’re easy targets. If you were a feminist, would you rather go after comic book writer Dan Slott, or Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj? The answer is simple.

Take a look at the variant comic book cover for Spider-Woman that ignited a solar burst of feminist anger in August.

Spider Woman variant

Now look at Jennifer Lopez from her new video “Booty,” featuring Iggy Azalea:

Jennifer Lopz Booty video

Now look at Nicki Minaj in her new video “Anaconda”:

Nicki Minaj Anaconda

Now look at Beyonce in her recent video “Partition”:

Beyonce-partition

Now consider the fact that with the ongoing “GamerGate” controversy, feminists have called gamers “terrorists” on par with “Holocaust deniers.” Who is really degrading the culture?

If one were to use the explosive rhetoric of terror, who is more of a cultural terrorist — the video game maker who gets guys excited about playing Final Fantasy XV, or the woman who objectifies herself to get men of all ages to lust over her? Who is more guilty of perpetuating “rape culture” — the guy who just wants to play the latest installment of Metal Gear, or the woman who strips down to almost nothing, bends over, sticks her butt in the air as high as possible, and then invites you to watch her do it again and again and again on her record label’s YouTube channel?

Final Fantasy XV
Here is a screen shot from Final Fantasy XV. Jennifer Lopez wanted to have a marketing tie-in to the game with her “Booty” video, but the male developers didn’t have any images of female characters shaking their butts around seductively.

Modern feminists have almost zero credibility. They almost exclusively go after the easiest possible targets, often times men in industries who just want to commiserate with other men and be left to their own devices. The next time a feminist tries to give you a hard time about the comic books you read or the video games you play, shove Jennifer Lopez’s butt in her face and move on.

Feminist ‘clump of cells’ who works at Burger King forgets that we’re ‘all the same inside’

Created Equal abortion debate

Burger King recently started a limited-market promotion of the Proud Whopper, which included the underlying message “We’re all the same inside.” It was supposed to be a show of support for San Francisco’s gay community, but it could also serve as Burger King’s stealth pro-life campaign. Since Burger King employee Victoria Duran of Columbus, Ohio seems to think that the unborn are just a “clump of cells,” the Proud Burger message can teach her that we’re all just bigger “clumps of cells.”

Ms. Duran is composed of many more cells than an unborn child, but no one is advocating that we kill her. It seems odd that she would a.) discriminate against someone with less cells than she, and b.) resort to assault and battery on the streets of Columbus because other clumps of cells are exercising their First Amendment rights.

Abortion debate created equal

 

Created Equal films captured it all on tape.

As Hotair’s Ed Morrisey observes, “It’s amusing in one respect to see someone so passionately engaged in exposing her ignorance of human biology while attempting to lecture someone else about it, as well as her ignorance on basic American civics.”

As humorous as it is, it’s also rather frightening. While Ms. Duran ultimately has little power to strip social conservatives of their rights, there are plenty of “Durans” out there who would love to see that happen. Sometimes they expose themselves (literally) in places like Argentina when they assault Catholic men, or sometimes such bigotry rears its head when guys like Marvel Comics writer Dan Slott tells Hobby Lobby and its Christian supporters they should go to “Christ-land.”

Let us revisit Ms. Duran’s actual speech. While it is hardly eloquent, the intellectual DNA is similar among “clumps of cells” who categorize themselves as liberal.

“This is absolute lying there, fucking dipship. That is not what a fetus looks like, okay? It’s a clump of cells at twelve weeks. It does not look like that. It’s a clump of mother fucking cells. No hands are shown at that time. You so white privilege racist fucking male that doesn’t stand for women’s rights. Get the fuck out of her, fucking dipshit. And get that camera out of my face, either. Fuckwit! … Fuck you. Fuckwit. You are fucking white male privilege assholes. What you are is a racist motherfucker as well. How dare you fucking do this kind of shit, asshole. … You fucking sexist misogynist motherfuckers. That is all you are! You don’t give a shit about women! You don’t give a shit about life! All you are is a bunch of assholes. All you are a bunch … No uterus, no right to talk about it! Understand me, motherfucker? … Your signs deserve to get fucked up!

The thought police are out in full force. Race? Class? Gender? It’s all there. “Privileged…white…males” only have free speech until that speech upsets women like Ms. Duran. Then it’s gone. Regardless, it seems odd that Ms. Duran would accuse a young man from Created Equal of being racist, when it is women like Ms. Duran that have arguably cheered on black genocide via abortion for decades.

What if science told us that certain DNA sequences are likely to result in a gay or lesbian child? Would Ms. Duran support abortion then? Does she support forced abortions in China? Burger King’s motto used to be “Your way, right away,” but in Ms. Duran’s world it’s “My way, right away. Understand me, punk?”

We used to live by the old saying: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Today, a bunch of totalitarian thug wannabes don’t even give the phrase lip service — they just get in your face, destroy your property and threaten you with violence.

At the end of the day, it is not the Victoria Durans of the world who are the most dangerous to society as a whole. Instead, we must primarily concern ourselves with influential individuals sowing seeds of hate into the fertile minds of the young. Her consciousness is filled with weeds, but it is the farmer who planted them there that we should be concerned about.

And with that, I will leave you with this: Even The Burger King Kids Club was once just a “clump of cartoon cells.”

P680/0112

Update:

Just in case there are any Ms. Durans who want to take part in the comments section, I have some hard science for you.

Five weeks after conception, the embryo first begins to assume features of human appearance. The face is recognizable, with the formation of discernible eyes, nose, and ears. Limbs emerge from protruding buds; digits, cartilage, and muscles develop. The cerebral hemispheres begin to fill the brain area, and the optic stalk becomes apparent. Nerve connections are established between the retina and the brain. The digestive tract rotates from its prior tubular structure, and the liver starts to produce blood cells and bile. Two tubes emerge from the pharynx to become bronchi, and the lungs have lobes and bronchioles. The heart is beating at 5 weeks and is almost completely developed by 8 weeks after conception. The diaphragm begins to divide the heart and lungs from the abdominal cavity. The kidneys approach their final form at this time. The urogenital and rectal passages separate, and germ cells migrate toward the genital ridges for future transformation into ovaries or testes. Differentiation of internal ducts begins, with persistence of either müllerian or wolffian ducts. Virilization of external genitalia occurs in male embryos. The embryo increases from about 6 to 33 mm in length and increases 50 times in weight.

Structurally, the fetus has become straighter, and the tubular neural canal along which the spinal cord develops becomes filled with nerve cells. Ears remain low on the sides of the head. Teeth are forming, and the two bony plates of the palate fuse in the midline. Disruptions during the latter part of the embryonic period lead to various forms of cleft lip and palate. By 10 weeks after the last menstrual period, all major organ systems have become established and integrated,” (Gabbe Obstetrics: Normal and Problem Pregnancies. 6th Ed. Copyright 2012 Saunders/Elsevier. Chapter 8: Drugs and Environmental Agents in Pregnancy and Lactation: Embryology, Tetratology, Epidemiology).

Update II:

It looks like I wasn’t too far off with my observation about the intellectual DNA of Ms. Durnan. From the Tumblr account “Pro-choice or No Voice” comes this gem: “I always look at these ‘pro-choicer assaults pro-lifer’ videos hoping to see some smug little shit get socked in the face…”

You have it first hand from the source, folks. That’s the “tolerance” of Ms. Duran’s worldview.

Feminist ‘looks down’ on married women; man exposes her pseudo-intellectual gobbledygook

Chrissy Stockton

Months ago ‘I Look Down on Young Women with Kids and I’m Not Sorry’ was published. It was written by Chrissy Stockton under the pen name “Amy Glass.” My wife read some of it out loud to me last weekend and asked what I thought. I told her that it required a blog post, even if the original piece was released in January. Besides, sometimes feminist drones get really upset and say things about me like: “I want to boil his nuts in Aunt Trudy’s cast-iron chicken pot and set a match to his wiener until it explodes like a cigar,” which also provides a window into their soul.

Let’s start from the beginning:

Do people really think that a stay at home mom is really on equal footing with a woman who works and takes care of herself? There’s no way those two things are the same. It’s hard for me to believe it’s not just verbally placating these people so they don’t get in trouble with the mommy bloggers.

Having kids and getting married are considered life milestones. We have baby showers and wedding parties as if it’s a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration to be able to get knocked up or find someone to walk down the aisle with. These aren’t accomplishments, they are actually super easy tasks, literally anyone can do them. They are the most common thing, ever, in the history of the world. They are, by definition, average. And here’s the thing, why on earth are we settling for average? …

You will never have the time, energy, freedom or mobility to be exceptional if you have a husband and kids.

Indeed, any two fools can have kids. That is easy. But it is difficult to be a father and a mother. It is hard to shape and mold young hearts and minds and spirits so that little human beings grow up to become productive members of civil society. One could make the argument that being an “exceptional” mother and father is society’s most important task. Ms. Stockton confidently crosses “exceptional” off the list for young married women, even though she’s never even been in love. Sad.

Ms. Stockton writes in ‘Successful Women Do Not Fall in Love’:

Let’s say you want to have a husband and kids and a job that pays enough for you to be comfortable. That’s an achievable dream for most of my peers, the upkeep of a relationship with an easy to moderate job can work for a woman. You can balance. However, there’s people like me who don’t like middle ground, it’s not for everyone. I don’t want to be a latte, I want to be an espresso. I want all of something, or I don’t want it at all.

Ms. Stockton obviously considers herself a “successful” woman, or at least on her way to being a success, so we must deduce from her own statement that she has never fallen in love. How is it that a woman who has never been in a loving relationship — especially a loving marriage — is so sure about what is possible for those couples? If a mother is doing what truly makes her happy, why is her life any less “successful” or “exceptional” than Ms. Stockton’s? Answer: It isn’t. Ms. Stockton just fashions herself an intellectual espresso-in-progress when in reality she’s more like drip-brew coffee.

Let me explain. First, Ms. Stockton writes of her previous pen name:

In the case of Amy Glass, a pen name is justifiable. Amy Glass did not (and cannot) destroy anyone’s life by publishing “I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry.” It can make people feel bad, yes. It can make people rage, yes. But it can also lead to a massive, weeks-long discussion about the merits of the argument, rather than the merits of the person who published it. This distinction—exactly how the pen name is used—is crucial.

Then she says of her core beliefs:

I think of all my opinions as in transit. None of them are destinations: stagnant, immobile things that don’t change. I’m human—I have all sorts of ideas, and not all fall in line with one grand, value-consistent philosophy. Like Whitman, I am large, I contain multitudes.

Ms. Stockton pats herself on the back for not destroying someone’s life, and then brushes off the fact that she says mean and hurtful things that she might not even believe a month, a week, a day or even a few hours after hitting the publish button. Why? Because she “contains multitudes.” I agree: her mind houses the belief that she’s smarter than the young married woman next to her while also possessing deep wells of vapid pseudo-intellectual psychobabble.

Chrissy Stockton Amazon book

If the nonsensical ramblings of this self-absorbed single woman sounds like a philosophy major to you, then give yourself a hand.

Ms. Stockton, OMG-Philosopher extraordinaire, is the author of PhiLOLZophy:

A popular question in philosophy is “How do I know I exist?” That seems really boring though. How about, “How can I use logic to get over my ex?” If you really love wisdom, you love it in all situations—you don’t need to be spoonfed unsolved problems in philosophy, because you’re already analyzing the US Weekly you’re reading or your kinda significant other. Sarah Heuer and Chrissy Stockton are writers living in Minneapolis who are determined to do something more interesting with their philosophy degrees than talk about dead white guys.

The picture is becoming so much clearer now: A female philosophy major who has never been in love — who has convinced herself that she can’t be successful and in love — finds out after graduation that a.) being able to quote Plato’s The Republic is nice but it isn’t particularly a marketable skill, and b.) she may not have the chops to be a “philosopher king.” She soothes her inner frustrations by lashing out at women who are in truly loving relationships before moving on to denigrating “old white men” — intellectual giants — who would “L-O-L” at “PhiLOLZophy.”

I hope that one day Ms. Stockton does fall in love. I hope that she enters into a healthy marriage. When that happens she’ll see ‘I Look Down on Young Women with Kids and I’m Not Sorry’ for what it really is — shallow self-centered tripe. There’s something deliciously ironic about a philosopher who doesn’t see that she’s The Allegory of Cave vivified. I’m confident that one day an older and wiser version of Ms. Stockton will see the light.

 

 

 

Boko Haram thugs scream ‘Allahu Akhbar,’ kidnap girls as U.S. feminists lament ‘micro-aggression’

Boko Haram
American feminism is dead because we now live in a world where Ayaan Hirsi Ali — whose genitals were mutilated by Islamic subhumans — is barred from speaking at Brandeis University, while Suey “only white people can be racist” Park has articles published by Time. Condoleezza Rice must essentially be forced out of a speaking engagement to Rutgers’ 2014 graduating class, but “Snooki” is welcomed with open arms — and $32,000. The same “feminists” who would take a stand against Ms. Rice because she’s a “war criminal” are the same “feminists” who would welcome Hillary (I voted for the Iraq War and gave a thumbs up to Obama’s steroidal drone program) Clinton in a heartbeat.

American feminism is dead because while American feminists fret over the “pressure” to wear Ugg boots, little girls are kidnapped and sold into slavery in Nigeria.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday:

The gunmen commanded the hundreds of students at the Chibok Government Girls Secondary School to gather outside. The men went into a storeroom and removed all the food. Then they set fire to the room.

“They … started shouting, ‘Allahu Akhbar,’ (God is great),” the 16-year-old student said. “And we knew.”

What they knew was chilling: The men were not government soldiers at all. They were members of the ruthless Islamic extremist group called Boko Haram [which means “Western education is sinful”]. They kidnapped the entire group of girls and drove them away in pickup trucks into the dense forest.

Three weeks later, 276 girls are still missing. …

Some of the kidnapped girls have been forced into “marriage” with their Boko Haram abductors, sold for a nominal bride price of $12, according to parents who talked with villagers. Others have been taken across borders to Cameroon and Chad, they said. Their accounts could not be verified, but child marriage is common in northern Nigeria, where it is allowed under Islamic law but not the country’s Western-style constitution.

Wait a second. I was taught by my college professors that “all cultures were equal.” I was told I was supposed to cheer on “diversity.” What’s going on?

Is a culture where large swathes of the population condones burning schools for little girls to the ground — and selling children for $12 into forced marriages — equal to Western Civilization? Am I supposed to offer a seat at the “diversity” table to an organization that literally translates: “Western education is sinful”? How strange is it that modern American liberals have reached a point where they give big wet intellectual kisses to individuals who seek to destroy them?

Mark Steyn and Ace of Spades probably put it best in reference to the revocation of Hirsi Ali’s speaking engagement at Brandeis.

First Steyn:

As for Brandeis president Frederick Lawrence and the others who took this decision, nobody’s asking them to be as brave as Ayaan Hirsi Ali. They will never know what it’s like to have their associates murdered and to be forced into living under armed guard. They will never have to “share the risk” that Ms Hirsi Ali faces every day of her life. All that was required of President Lawrence & Co was that they not be total craven, jelly-spined squishes who fold like a cheap Bedouin tent at the first hint of pressure.

But Lawrence couldn’t even do that. Ayaan Hirsi Ali campaigns against female genital mutilation – that’s to say, the barbarous practice by which Muslim men deny women sexual pleasure by having their clitorises cut off. Lawrence and the other fellows who run Brandeis are in no danger of any equivalent procedure since it seems clear they’ve nothing down there to chop off anyway. The eunuchs of the American academy are the beneficiaries of western liberty, of the spirit of openness and inquiry that is the principal difference between us and the intellectually stagnant Muslim world. But they will not lift a finger to defend that tradition.

And then Ace:

The letter demanding that Hirsi Ali be dis-invited from speaking at Brandeis was, get this, largely signed by women in the Women and Gender Studies program, and more-or-less-explicitly stated that Ali’s focus on genuine repression of women took the focus off the trivial microagressions they prefer to gab about.

[The professors said Hirsi Ali’s views on Islam “obscure(s) such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus.”]

Well, they’re not practicing forced clitorectomies at Brandeis, nor are they practicing forced marriage (which is essentially family-arranged rape for life), so I take their complaint to mean this:

Hirsi Ali’s own story of genuine oppression, and her agitation about important, fundamental rights of, and dignities owed, to women, makes our own neurotic prattlings seem rather silly and fluffy by comparison.

Modern American feminists have just about zero moral authority because, like the NAACP giving a lifetime achievement awards to a racist NBA owner in exchange for cold hard cash, they sold out long ago.

Ideologues with deep pockets are happy to pay women with useless degrees in Gender Studies to hold workshops where they try and convince other impressionable young women that “pressure” to wear certain kinds of clothes in the United States is worth dedicating countless hours of rage and anger. Meanwhile, real outrages take place in the Middle East, Africa and all parts of the globe where friends and allies of the Boko Haram worldview takes root.

The most recent example: Brunei. CNN reported May 1:

Brunei has become the first East Asian country to adopt sharia law, despite widespread condemnation from international human rights groups.

The Islamic criminal law is set to include punishments such as flogging, dismemberment and death by stoning for crimes such as rape, adultery and sodomy. The religious laws will operate alongside the existing civil penal code.

During a ceremony Wednesday morning, the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, announced the commencement of the first phase of the sharia-based penal code, according to the government’s official website.

The oil-rich kingdom, located on the island of Borneo, has a population of just 412,000 people.

The reaction among American feminists? A few press releases here and there that really just say: When are the midterm elections going to heat up so we can pretend like white, straight, and Christian Republican men are more of a threat to world peace than Islamic nutcases with a never-ending mission to chop off female genitalia and hurl rocks at as many women as possible?

The next time an American feminist on your local college campus lectures you on “micro-aggression,” ask her when she’s going to voluntarily offer herself up for female genital mutilation in the name of “diversity,” and then continue about your business.
