The Wilting Lilies of Modern Feminism

May 28th, 2013 - 6:50 am

Feminists are waging war on Facebook? I didn’t know, but I’m hardly surprised. Here’s Cathy Young with some of the latest:

Another leader of the initiative, Huffington Post columnist Soraya Chemaly, can be—to put it charitably—overzealous in her vigilance toward allegedly misogynistic expression. In an April column, Chemaly not only cheered a University of Connecticut student who had criticized the school’s revamped Husky Dog logo as too mean-looking and thus “terrifying” to women, but made a bizarre new charge: that UConn’s mascot was based on a “popular rape meme” on the Internet.

Chemaly was referring to “Insanity Wolf,” a series of user-made graphics with texts describing extremely dumb and/or psychopathic acts—from “Wanna know how a flamethrower works? Come closer!” to “Grandpa has fallen and he can’t get up: Finish him”—on a background image of a snarling wolf. A few of these deliberately outrageous jokes are about rape or domestic violence; others mock child abduction, cannibalism, murder of male victims and (male) self-injury, especially genital mutilation. “Insanity Wolf” is not a “rape meme,” and its only resemblance to the UConn Husky logo is that each features a canine head.

People post this pictures on Facebook, therefore Facebook is guilty of… something.

Anyway, we now live in an age where strong women demonstrate their strength by becoming self-proclaimed victims of damn near anything. And where independence means pressuring everything and everybody to move in drab lockstep together.

Is there anything, just one damn issue, where vile progressives don’t engage in the most obvious and spiteful projection?

If feminists stop raging, bury them. Their dead. Their reason for existence has become "oooh. Because... men!"

And that should be they're dead. ARGH. How did I type my least favorite grammar mistake. I might be dead too. I'll go search out coffee.

I think this has less to do with vile progs than asshats are everywhere. In a world where like minded people can found a sexually themed midgets in tap shoes forum, why should it surprise anyone that some dips find common cause in being frightened by scary animal pictures as a theme?

Sooo... a mascot voted in by the students in 1933 is based on an internet meme from 2009?

I find it fascinating that Progressivism went straight from the dashing revolutionary phase to the grey apparatchik phase in one generation, even though they didn't have absolute power at any time during the process. It happened to the extent that they *did* gain power.

I had no idea that the Soviet Man transformation works on a sliding scale.

No. Next question.

No. Because vile progs, by definition, lack the brainpower to even conceive of other minds with different motivations (they generally lack the brainpower to tie their shoes) they are forced to assume that everyone they meet is motivated by the same festering swamp of evil that drives them.
