How Feminism Has Manipulated The English Language & The Concept of Equality

Sep 3, 2013

In George Orwell’s dystopian (that’s smart-talk for “scary fucking fictional future”) novel Nineteen Eighty-Four he implemented the concept of a language called newspeak. Newspeak was a boiled-down version of the English language. It was used by the totalitarian regime as a tool to limit free-thought; concepts outside of the established verbal construct were considered “thought-crime”. Concepts like freedom, rebellion, individuality, and peace could not be verbally explained within the confines of newspeak: “If thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” ― George Orwell, 1984 However, they didn’t just ban words, they changed them too. For example, the word “free” still existed in newspeak but could only be used in terms of something not being possessed, as in, “the dog is free from lice” or, “this field is free from weeds.” It could not be used in terms of being able to do as one pleases, as in “free choice” or “free will” since these concepts no longer existed. “We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them.” ― George Orwell, 1984 As you have likely realized by now, I’m about to make more outrageous comparisons between Feminism and Socialism. However this time I’m just going to use Nineteen Eighty-Four as a precursory comparison. I won’t force conclusions on you at every turn, I’ll let you do that for yourself with each example. So let’s hit it.   5. Sexism is always misogyny Despite what everyone seems to think, sexism is not inherently bad. Sexism is, by definition: Prejudice or discrimination on the basis of gender. So prejudice is bad, but discrimination? Well it has two meanings: (1) The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things (2) Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another.   If we combine the meaning of sexist and the second meaning of discrimination we have: Recognizing the difference between the sexes. What we can conclude is that discrimination, and therefore sexism, is amoral. For example: I would hook up with a girl but not a guy, not because I’m homophobic, not because I’m misandrist, but because I’m being sexist. I’m discriminating between potential hook-ups on the basis of gender. Or...

Fallacy, Shaming, Control, and Indoctrination… Sure Looks Like a Liberal Agenda to Me

Fallacy, Shaming, Control, and Indoctrination… Sure Looks Like a Liberal Agenda to Me

Aug 2, 2013

“Feminism is for Conservatives too! It shouldn’t be a radical or leftist idea to support equal rights for women.” Here’s my problem with that. It’s a loaded statement. Technically speaking, I support Women’s Rights – technically. I just don’t like the Liberal’s version of it, ergo, Feminism. I don’t support Feminism for two main reasons. 1. Because it shares the same four telltale signs of a Liberal agenda: Fallacy, Shaming, Control, and Indoctrination. Hence the title of this post. 2. We don’t need to fight for Women’s Rights anymore. Honest. The revolution ended decades ago. The only reason it’s still here is because it the Liberal Feminists are refusing to relinquish their victimhood. To do that, would be to accept responsibility. Gasp. You see, female Conservatives/Libertarians don’t need feminism, look at Conservatarian Dana Loesch, she’s married, homeschools two boys, and a voice in the media (oh and she’s an ex-Liberal Feminist). I know what you’re thinking, “My gosh! She should be on the cover of Woman’s Weekly. SUPERMOM! How does she do it all!!??” Honestly I have no freaking idea, but the important thing is – she did it without Feminism. Note: It’s no secret the majority of Manospherians tend to be Right-Wing. In fact, this article seemed to say, there may be an unproportional number of Libertarians in the Manosphere (whether they know it or not). But, I digress. However for the sake of coherence, I’m lumping Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians, and Right-Wingers, as Conservatives; and Progressives, Liberals, Democrats, and Left-Wingers as Liberals. And if you don’t really know what those words mean, here’s a quick crash course in basic Politics: Conservatives want to be your father, Liberals want to be your mother, and Libertarians just want to be treated like fucking adults. So let’s dive into why Feminism looks like Liberal Agenda to me: Logical Fallacies & Shaming Tactics I was inspired to write this article after reading DarlingDoll’s excellent response to and deconstruction of the question, “Dear Anti-Feminists, what do you stand for?”. The feminist goes on to ask (emphasis mine): I’m not against anti-feminists because I understand everyone has their own opinions, but it just makes me wonder, what do they...

Feminism & Personal Freedom

Feminism & Personal Freedom

Jul 26, 2013

If you’re ever in need of a good laugh, I sincerely recommend you throw over to WhoNeedsFeminism.com. If you’re not already aware, Who Needs Feminism is a site where women and (I am ashamed to say) some men write a reason for why they need feminism on a piece of paper of some sort, eg. “I need feminism because sexual girl power traditional social construct empowerment rape culture blah blah vaginal superiority.” Granted, for that level of sarcasm you’d need to go to WhoNeedsFeminism.org. This site is essentially one giant troll to their “dotcom” cousin; and a giant, sarcastic middle finger to feminism (They’re a non for profit organization, they just really want to get the information out there). The reason I’m going into all this is simply because earlier I was surprised at just how many of the posts left me thinking, “And so to fix this… you would do… what exactly?” Let me give you a few examples: Notice the similarity between all of these? If you were to go to each of these girls and ask them what they want done about it, the answers would almost certainly be “They shouldn’t be allowed to say that stuff anymore!” So then the question to ask simply is, what ACTUALLY would you do about it? Ban it? Pass legislation to prohibit people saying anything to offend you or any other delicate flower in the entire country? Label “rape jokes” as “hate speech”? Make it a crime for anyone to openly disagree with the feminist doctrine? Freedom of speech anyone? Oh and in 2012 a radical group of feminists in Europe wanted to ban wolf-whistling and men calling women “darling”. YES. They want to take away men’s whistling rights. Oh but there’s more: Not only do they wish to take away our freedom of speech, but this young girl is after our looking rights! Because somehow, male appreciation of a female’s “feminine attributes” is offensive to her? Forgiving me for jumping to conclusions but I can’t help but feel as though this is eerily… Socialist? Or communist or fascist or whatever trendy word is being tossed around these days. But I know what you’re...

Shame, Shame, Shame

Shame, Shame, Shame

Jul 11, 2013

Well folks, it didn’t take long before the hate train arrived at the station. Here we are on day two after our launch, and boy has it been an interesting two days so far! We have been shamed! This is highly indicative of the very mechanisms we’ve already been observing that feminists and white knights use to try to prop up their cultural vision and narrative. And it’s ironic. Because the shaming was done on a post declaring “you’ve been using too many shame tactics, we no longer care.” I’ll pick out just one or two of my favorites, but you get the idea: “Manchild.” The consistency of these shaming techniques is actually quite intriguing to me. I made yesterday’s post specifically stating that men have been withdrawing from our society- in other words, not providing value to society at large, in part due to shaming – and the shame begins: you’re not real men. Real men don’t complain about this stuff. Real men man-up. Whoops! Didn’t quite read the post? This one made the cut because it’s hilarious. What has been written on this site, in the manosphere, and on TheRedPill is upsetting. It’s counter-cultural and has dire implications about our economy and our futures. It may sound a bit silly to say this, but people don’t like hearing things they don’t like hearing. And when they do, they can either mull it over and really think about it, or they can protect their ego investment by denying any of it could be true, and leave a snarky comment to help ease their mind. Folks, this is all they’re bringing to the table. “What’s that? Withdrawing from society you say? Well we didn’t want you anyway!” No shit.   redpillschoolRedPillSchool is the head moderator of the forum http://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill and and a fantastic saxophone player.More...

Only white knights, women and feminists objectify women

Only white knights, women and feminists objectify women

Jul 9, 2013

Dear Feminists and Women, How are you? It’s me, redpillschool. Just checking up on things. Oh myself? I’m not doing so well. Another person just tried to shame me for enjoying my sexuality. I know, it’s pretty bad that we live in a society that encourages this. According to you, only stupid women have sex with me. I wonder if you’d say that to their face? I mean, she was just enjoying her sexuality. Something you feminists appear to be in favor for. Why are you being discriminating? I wanted to talk to you about objectification of women really quickly. It’s upsetting because I love women and would hate to see anybody treat one like less than a person. But it seems feminists are doing a great job of this as of late. Let’s address the word object. Objects have no agency. They cannot act for themselves. They can only be acted upon. I pick up a coffee mug and put it in the dishwasher. It is an object and cannot put itself in the dishwasher. Let’s talk about agency, the opposite of being an object. This is important. I have agency. Tomorrow I can decide whether to go swimming, or read a book. It’s my choice. I have an active role in my future. Nobody can tell me what I can and cannot do. I am an agent. Feminists used to be pretty upset at the idea that anybody would objectify women. This was the concept that women have no agency, and instead do only what other people act upon them. If I want a woman in the kitchen cleaning my coffee mug, I put her there and she does it. Well gosh that sounds terrible. Feminism agrees! Women aren’t objects. They should never be treated as such. So feminism, I have to ask. Why do you keep acting like women are objects and not agents? Feminists keep telling me I’m disgusting, that I’m wrong and evil.. because I trick women into sleeping with me. But feminists- you were the one who told me women are people and make grown up decisions for themselves! Are you saying that women are incapable of saying no? I just don’t get it. I’m trying to...
