The Saga of the Chisel-toothed Rodent
Biting Beaver Article @ Encyclopedia Dramatica. . .
Now, the nature of such rodents is that they must be forever chewing on something because their little incisors are forever growing - like fingernails! And if they don't trim their choppers down to size, these will get longer and longer and eventually give the critters a fatal case of lockjaw!
At any rate, anybody who knows how my mind works will straightway suss out what I am thinking: the Biting Beaver is plainly and simply an allegorical personification of feminism as a whole! Yes. Isn't it elegant how the microcosm and the macrocosm mirror each other, model each other, and scale to each other? Like Russian matryushka dolls, yes?
Here is Biting Beaver's official "logo":
As you will remark, it is in the likeness of a beaver gnawing at a wooden phallic sculpture. But what strikes me is, that the sculpture was very clearly whittled out of a log! And I could be mistaken, but it looks uncannily as if the beaver itself is the inspired Michelangelo who CREATED that penile artwork in the first place - all for the purpose of destroying it!
In case it isn't clear, the writing on the log reads: "Exposing the heart of the patriarchy and destroying it". That hints pretty strongly that the beaver did the work of "exposing" the big "woody" that was sequestered inside the wood all along. What remains fuzzy to me is where the wood ends and where "the Wood" begins - or at any rate by what objective, empirical, non-arbitrary criterion the line of division was inscribed.
If you recall that the word "beaver" is slang, then you will see how the phrase "biting beaver" is a pretty good translation for the Latin vagina dentata. That might offer some kind of clue.
Not all sick minds are so easily exposed. Some of them are extremely subtle. "Occulted" is the word I would tend to use. But such is not the case with our gal Biting Beaver. No doubt she is very clever and verbally talented, but she completely lacks the gift to see herself as others see her: in that respect she's denser than a solid oak log!
And thank goodness for that: were she not so bloody thick in this way, she'd have dissimulated her true nature far more effectively, and fooled a lot more people, and risen far higher upon the tree of power in this world, and inflicted damage on a far more massive scale.
Which, I would hasten to add, is what plenty of radical manichaean feminists have in fact done - with consequences that have grown familiar to us over the last forty-odd years! Yes, the ones you never notice are the ones you need to watch.
In the end, there is no arguing with people who mentally sculpt the world in order to see what they wish to see. It is futile; you too are a part of their sculpture, and they will tell you so, and the more you protest the stronger their conviction grows!
Biting Beaver is the perfect feminist - a feminist par excellence! Right alongside of Valerie Solanas and plenty of other odious persons we could name. And such people are not simply "feminists" - they are feminism incarnate!
When the day is done, they leave nothing better than a pile of gnawed woodchips. That appears to be their one true purpose on earth; to accelerate the growth of entropy.
Let us say that the log is civilization, or society, or what-you-will. The beaver is steadily chomping away at the log, and the carved phallos is nothing but a transitory stage in a larger process that destroys so-called "patriarchy" right along with everything else, and in the end generates nothing but a mountain of chipped waste.
