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...

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...
