TERF War – Why Feminism is cannibalising itself

If I can take away one thing from the Women’s March 2018, it was how much more ridiculous Feminism has become with the idea of Intersectional Feminism.

Feminism on it’s own is a complicated affair; though, as a white, cis-gendered man, I’ve no doubt that this is how it will seem to me. Because of my “privileged and masculine” outlook on such things, I’ve always pretty-much assumed that all Feminists think along the same lines; men are bad, women are good etc..

Not so much apparently.

Do me a favour?

Type “White Feminism” into the search bar on Twitter, and you’ll be greeted by a slew of Feminist in-fighting and outright hatred of the idea that white women have their own version of Feminism that excludes and delegitimises minorities.

As much as the organisers of the Women’s March told us that the event was all about women across the world standing up against misogyny and creating a voice for ALL women, it turned out to be nothing more than an anti-Trump protest, and a huge act of self-cannibalisation, eating it’s way to the very heart of Feminism.

It also showed just how radical today’s Feminism has truly become, and how far removed from any semblance of sanity it really is. It’s no longer about the rights of women as a whole; uniting all women equally under one banner in order to fight the Patriarchy. Now, it has become all about finding the most oppressed group of women possible; the ultimate “Sacred Cow” if you will, with which to spearhead the entire movement. That group is currently the Trans community, particularly Trans-women.

And some Feminists aren’t too pleased about it.

This was taken from the Vancouver Women’s March and shared via the Twitter account of Lauren Southern (check out her YouTube channel here https://t.co/4IPrESDJO9)

Known as TERFs or Trans-exclusionary radical feminists, this particular brand of Feminism stems mainly from the “Second Wave” and is the based on the belief that only women born with a vagina and XX chromosomes are “real” women.

Hardly a ground-breaking thought process, right?

Having thoughts like this are obviously going to get you into a lot of trouble with the Identity Politics Brigade. Activists of the “old guard” of Second Wave Feminism, such as Germaine Greer and Julie Bindel, who both hold the view that Trans-women are NOT real women, have both been no-platformed by Student Unions and cast aside as TERFs by today’s Feminists.

Regarding Transgenderism, Bindel wrote in 2004:

“I don’t have a problem with men disposing of their genitals, but it does not make them women, in the same way that shoving a bit of vacuum hose down your 501s does not make you a man.”

Quotes like this are more than enough to earn you “banishment from the ranks” by today’s “call-out Queens”, and it will only get worse; as long as identity and one-upmanship play a part in an ever-changing, ever-devolving movement like Feminism.

Munroe Bergdorf; a Trans-woman, and one of the louder critics of “old-fashioned Feminism”, has recently spoken out on Twitter asking women to attend the Women’s March in London, and adding:

“I also want to stress that if you do attend, it is CRUCIAL that you do with an INTERSECTIONAL mind-set. Centering reproductive systems at the heart of these demonstrations is reductive and exclusionary.

Not all women have reproductive systems, not all women have a vagina, not all women’s vagina’s are pink. Think about your message, use your voice for ALL women. Not just yourself.

TIME IS ALSO UP on white feminism, TERF’s and any other branch of feminism that seeks power for some rather than equality for all. Tick-tock.” 

Inclusive indeed.

To say that Feminism is beginning to implode is a complete understatement if you ask me. I’m certainly no Feminist (not by a long-shot), yet I have a certain amount of respect for the Germaine Greers and the Julie Bindels of this world, even if I disagree with practically all of their arguments. At least they have the BALLS to fight for women’s rights without the need to rely on identity politics and race-shaming; balls that this new generation, for want of a better phrase, has castrated itself of.

White women need not speak.

Women with vaginas need not speak.

Women with reproductive systems need not speak.

Women who question the validity of Trans people need not speak.

Unless you are near the top tier of the victim-hood pyramid, you might as well throw away your pussy hat, sit still, be a good girl, and listen.

Shush now!

The REAL women are talking.

Roman Polanski won’t be charged with molesting a ten year old

This is a rallying call to Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey and all of the #MeToo and #Timesup movements!

Get out your black dresses, dust off your “Time’s up” badges and drag out a victim of abuse to attach to your hip like a designer handbag (to show how much you REALLY care)

It’s time to go to WAR!

anigif_enhanced-buzz-13393-1424662115-34

According to The Guardian (see link here) the Hollywood Elite’s favourite degenerate Director won’t be charged with allegedly assaulting a 10 year old girl in 1975 during a photoshoot in which he made the girl pose nude, after which he (again, allegedly) abused her.

Normally, when someone is said to have “allegedly” assaulted another person, I immediately call for due-process in order for guilt, or a lack of, to be found in a fair and just way.

That is still true with Mr. Polanski in this case.

However…

In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. He subsequently pled guilty to the charge of statutory rape. He was released from prison after serving 42 days, and as part of an apparent plea bargain, was to be put on probation. When he learned that the judge had changed his mind and planned to reject the plea bargain, he fled to Paris before sentencing.

Quoted from Wikipedia

He admitted, plead guilty, was charged, and was put in prison for drugging and raping another girl; this time a 13-year-old.

He then fled.

Sorry Roman, but you’re looking pretty guilty to me son.

Certainly a lot more than some of the celebrities who have been taken down by the #MeToo movement, and for a lot less than the child-molesting exploits of Polanski.

So, Ladies, this is your chance!

After years of:

giving standing ovations,

signing petitions demanding he be released from detention in Zurich

and singing the praises of an “alleged” Kiddie-fiddler for decades

(all while knowing of Polanski’s guilt), it’s time to disavow. March down to the offices of the Los Angeles DA (obviously stopping along the way for photo opportunities) and demand that they ignore the statute of limitations and lock his ass up!

#Timesup Roman.

Surely now, after so many victims have come forward in Hollywood. After all of the rhetoric. After the #MeToo and the #Timesup movements standing up and demanding an end to the abuse of women; surely NOW is the time to finally stop looking the other way and forgiving Polanski for his crimes. NOW is the time to treat him exactly like you’ve treat the rest of the sexual abusers in Hollywood.

#Timesup Hollywood.

Isn’t it?

Feminism – The Gulf between Persia and the West

Although the majority of major news networks are barely covering it, (apparently there’s a big white truck blocking CNNs view) there is an uprising happening in Iran. Women are beginning to take off their hijabs and protest the Islamic dictatorship that is choking the very freedom from it’s people; particularly its women.

You look at what is happening in Iran; from Honour Killings to the fact that women’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s, and you quickly come to realise that women are in desperate need of support to enable them to break free from the oppressive Government. The very things that modern Feminists in the West claim to stand for are being trampled on by Iran’s leaders, causing untold suffering to it’s women.

Yet, as the brave protestors in Iran are rising up and fighting back, the proud and strong Feminists of the West who have been fighting their own “oppression” and “torment” are silent. In fact, the only people I hear in support of these women are the very people Feminists claim to be Sexist, misogynistic, homophobic….you know the drill.

As soon as I learnt of the Uprising, I immediately knew that the Western Feminists would clam up. And here’s why:

THERE’S NOT A DAMN THING THE WOMEN OF IRAN CAN LEARN FROM THEM

The “problems” that Women in the West face are little more than a joke when you compare them with women in Iran or any country that even entertains Sharia for that matter.

Women in the West don’t have to do what a man tells them.

Women in the West don’t have to cover their heads or dress modestly.

Women in the West don’t have half the testimony of that of a man.

Women in the West are free to leave the Country without a man’s permission.

Women in the West can do anything they bloody-well please, whenever they please.

 

Western Feminists want “equality between the sexes”; the ability to be on a level playing-field with men.

Listen up Western ladies – you already have it.

It’s the rest of the world who don’t.

“But muh wage-gap!” I hear you cry.

It’s been debunked more times than the Flat-Earth Society.

So I’m going to ask all Feminists to stand with me and send your support to the Women of Iran and the rest of the Sharia-led world who are facing the kind of torment and suffering that you claim to suffer from.

Linda Sarsour. I will expect you to be at the front of the line with your hijab burning at your feet, ready to take on the oppressors of women. Lena Dunham. Anita Sarkeesian. Chelsea Handler. Samantha Bee. Hilary Clinton. Justin Trudeau. Barack Obama and all of you proud Feminists who call yourselves “Champions of Women”.

Your time has come.

Your chance is here.

Grab your Pussy Hats and form a march! March to Tehran and demand change!

This is the REAL fight you have been waiting for, and myself and the rest of the “Misogynists” are here with you.

AS EQUALS.
