Yesterday I had the weirdest Internet day: Venturing into places where I'm the Antichrist and mostly by accident! Two of the sites had to do with Neo-Hitlerites (my term for racists who kinda like Hitler or think he was just misunderstood and who also hate Jews, blacks and women). I was somewhat surprised by the fact that these guys are not only obsessed with race and the establishment of a White Homeland and all sorts of very, very nasty stuff. They are also utterly into the oppression of women and telling us our proper role!
This makes sense, of course. If you want to create a mega-country with only white people in it you need to get white women to start breeding to the maximum. Women are the cannons and babies are the cannon balls and the soldiers operating the cannons must be these race-separatist men. And cannons don't go to college or steal jobs from men.
One site told me, quite seriously, that feminism is a Jewish plot to make all non-Jews go extinct. Its purpose is the destruction of the family which results in low birth rates, single mothers who cannot cope and so on. The solution, it seems, is for men to man-up, grab women by the next and grind their faces into the dirt. She likes it. She really does, because evolution made woman interested in only two things: pleasing the man and having as many babies as possible. Men, on the other hand, are created Leaders by evolution! All white men, that is. -- Don't you just love the various theories of our evolution people feel free to present, these days?
Anyway, this site told me that women should be at home caring for children because that's what evolution created women for. Because women are so emotional, men should make all decisions except those about children. I find it hilarious when we get a whole story how all unequal arrangements are to benefit the children and then men would leave that most precious cause for existence to be decided over by the terribly emotional women!
While scrubbing my eyes with steel wool in the shower I contemplated the fact that the story that site told about women is identical to the story extreme Islamists tell about women which is identical to the story fundamentalist Christians tell about women. But in some ways this site seems more honest because the writer doesn't even pretend that any of this is for the benefit of women. Cannons.
So after disinfecting myself thoroughly and repeating the mantra "only a few rotten apples", I strayed onto a very similar but smarter site from a YouTube video of this Superbowl ad, because the site sent a commando unit of misogynists to take over the comments thread. They really do hate us! Especially feminists because feminism stands in the way of the Dominant Alpha Wolf Getting His Way. Which is pretty funny, given that alpha wolves don't seem to exist in the wild. They are family guys.
Anyway, these asshats were so nasty and dehumanizing that I wanted to see who their daddy is. He's a Nationalist, he tells us, meaning that he is not racist but just wants all races to have their own countries and besides, Hitler was badly misunderstood. He wants to abolish the Nineteenth Amendment because he believes that women's suffrage destroyed the White Family though he admits that it most likely won't get abolished.
He also wants to ban women from becoming physicians (I was too tired to find out why but suspect it's too high a role for women). And he is opposed to abortion, thinks homosexuality is a disease caused by early childhood homosexual abuse and so on. Interestingly, he seems to have joined the misogynists openly not because he would feel strongly about the perfidy of women as a sex but because his plan for a White Homeland requires taking away women's human rights. Cannons, again.
And no, I'm not linking to either site. And yes, I had to do the steel wool operation again.
There's something very wrong about me because the third piece I read was on the Fox News website, titled "To Be Happy, We Must Admit Women And Men Aren't "Equal."" Suzanne Venker's piece has snippets such as this
- It’s time to say what no one else will: Feminism didn’t result in equality between the sexes – it resulted in mass confusion. Today, men and women have no idea who’s supposed to do what.
- Prior to the 1970s, people viewed gender roles as as equally valuable. Many would argue women had the better end of the deal! It’s hard to claim women were oppressed in a nation in which men were expected to stand up when a lady enters the room or to lay down their lives to spare women life. When the Titanic went down in 1912, its sinking took 1,450 lives. Only 103 were women. One-hundred three.
- Compare that with last year’s wrecked cruise line, the Costa Concordia. It resulted in fewer deaths, but there was another significant difference. “There was no ‘women and children first’ policy. There were big men, crew members, pushing their way past us to get into the lifeboats. It was disgusting,” said passenger Sandra Rogers, 62.
- The captain of the ship agrees. In USA Today, Francesco Schettino was asked about his New Year’s resolution. He responded, “Bone up on the parts about ‘women and children first’ and ‘the captain goes down with his ship.’
