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...
