What the Sisterhood Talks About
in Closed Sessions

Here I go again, sending you away for offshore reading. The following is (in the author's words) "a hypothetical commentary that contains real facts", meaning it was not actually written by a feminist, but is rather a summary (or distillation) of MRA conclusions based on years of study. However, it employs the postulated voice of a feminist as a literary vehicle to convey its message. So please understand: this is emphatically NOT an opus in the "Elders of Zion" tradition—heaven help us, it is far more truthful than that!

But now, the customary dangling snippet, for bait:
"The goal of feminism is to obtain power and control over the things which we are able to be dependent on men for while creating the options and choices that allow us to depend on men when we want to without explicitly needing them and thus “independence”. This, combined with our sexual barganing power will allow us to dominate and control men in their public lives i.e. on a societal level and in their personal lives and relationships. If we can gain such control men will have no choice but to continue to do what they have always done for us anyway, namely provide resources to us and sacrifice for us and this includes their very lives. Women will have more choices than ever before and less reciprocal obligation or liabilities to men at the same time... We will be liberated. We now have choices and men do not."
Very well, you will want to read all of this. Warning: it is long. But. . you will want to read it all! I mean that seriously, and you know me—I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true:

This is strong stuff; in fact, stronger than I myself would publish! It is a grim tableau of the future which the author sets before us; grim not only for its predictions, but for what it says about the growing alienation among men toward women. I monitor these things pretty closely, and if you are a newcomer to all of this—especially a non-feminist woman wishing to help in some way—then I can hardly overstate the case: this is all very, very REAL, and is growing steadily worse.

More and more men all the time are drifting toward a settled conviction that women are evil, mercenary animals who cannot be trusted. And you can hardly blame these men for feeling that way, when so much in our present-day culture conspires to lend weight and bear witness (if falsely?) to the possible veracity of such dark conclusions.


For many years, the feminist endeavor has been to drive a wedge between men and women—to infect the atmosphere between them, to poison the water between them, to render normal, natural productive relations impossible between them. And the present deteriorating state of social existence will testify to the considerable success of feminist efforts.

Make no mistake: feminists are aggressive, driven, worldly-minded, "alpha" people—full of vanity and craving! They are not mellow. They are not laid-back. They are not philosophers. They do not have "the gift to be simple."

Feminism has quite willfully and skillfully set men and women at odds with each other, almost at each other's throats, by undermining their sense of shared interest and mutual obligation. Moral constraints upon women's behavior have been largely redefined as forms of "oppression" or "controlling" - as if anybody could hope to go through life with no occasional sense of "heaviness" and absolved from even self-control?

The feminists love to toss around the word "misogyny" as a kind of pan-womanistic moral atom-bomb device, a way to stampede ALL women into a state of cooperative moral panic—even women who wouldn't normally give feminism the time of day! It is a way to sell feminism by high-pressure sales tactics, since misogyny is a kind of ambient poison that would (in theory anyway) strike women universally and irrespectively.

And yet, the growth of "misogyny" is positively guaranteed to happen under the septic conditions which feminist innovation has introduced into the world. There is no conceivable way it couldn't happen! For years, feminism has been like a busy farmer, growing misogyny like a crop: mulching, manuring, disking, harrowing, plowing, sowing, constantly bringing new acreage under cultivation—and reaping progressively bigger harvests!

So, the present state of social existence pushes men and women both down an escalating spiral of bad behavior and mutual recrimination, and the worst of it is that the average man OR woman doesn't know what is really going on, and accordingly takes appearances at face value, falling into the same trap time and time again at every iteration of the cycle.

And feminism grants women a free license to do their worst at every stage. . . while men are held fully accountable for every misstep or misdeed, and for every cross word about women that might roll off their tongues for any reason whatsoever!

At any rate, one thing is certain: if present trends continue, then "misogyny" will grow and grow. And the feminists will never stop blaming men for this—for if they did, they would, ipso facto, no longer be feminist. But if non-feminist women in appreciable numbers don't ultimately wake up, hoist their colors, and raise their voices militantly against feminism and feminists, then men shall be entitled to draw the worst conclusion about women that might ultimately seem right to them. That day, of course, is not yet. However, it is not looming smaller on the horizon.

I thank the anonymous commenter who shared the first-linked item above. That same commenter kindly shared some other links, and I pass them along with recommendation:

I read that article yesterday. It is an excellent piece of wry satire, but that doesn't mean it's not true. I smiled all the way through it. The author did an excellent job of exposing the hateful side of feminism, which I consider to be an ideology of hate. Your commentary is right on.

Your post has made me realise the enormous boon that the protests of non-feminist women against feminism are to men who have not yet woken up.

Those poor fools who have bought into feminism's man-bad, woman-good version of the universe are faced not with men telling them that woman are being bad (easily dismisable as misogyny), but with women telling them that women are being bad.

With the feminists talking in one ear, the nonfeminists talking in the other. What choice do they have but to finally think for themselves?

The hardest part about talking to a feminist, their lack of ability to think with objectivity, and without the automatic and predisposed belief in feminism, applies to anti-feminist women as much as it would apply to men. Nearly every anti-feminist woman I've come in contact with who has attempted to explain, persuade, reason, etc. with feminists have come up against a brick wall of ignorance and mis-education riddled with lots of drama and emotional b.s. I'm not saying anti-feminist women should give up and just let misogyny takeover, after all, I cannot not have hope for our world, but it sure as hell will be one tough row to hoe.

"I'm not saying anti-feminist women should give up and just let misogyny takeover. . ."

I think the important thing to understand here is that anti-feminist women are not mainly talking in order to "persuade" the feminists (who are beyond hope) but in order to raise their voices so that men will hear them.

"Sending a message" to men, in other words.

Remember that, ugly as it sounds, we are in a WAR! The other side is composed of moral idiots, and I am afraid that fear, shame, public ridicule and the like are the only forms of behavior modification that will work with these people.

They way to keep misogyny from growing, is for anti-feminist women to make their voices heard by men. . . and the more loudly, the better.

Otherwise, men will more and more decide that women (and not just feminists) are the Enemy. :(

BTW, I thank you for the 'manifesto' that you composed recently, and I was going to share some thoughts about it, but. . . there is much to reflect upon wrt the points you have raised, and I need to process very, very thoroughly. But. . soon!

Are feminists still in keeping with both; The SCUM Manifesto and " The Red Stockings Manifesto?cy

If you query feminists as individuals, you'll get a range of answers.

But feminISM, as a movement, is still shaping the world along the lines suggested by both of those documents. .

Yes it is. This why we; the counter-feminist agents of change must continue our mission.

Theoretically, it sounds good. Part of the problem with that though seems to be that many aren't able to see past the woman part, their sensitivity alerts are set so high, anything which comes out of a woman's mouth is automatically discounted, simply b/c she is a woman. In which case, is it not possible that a simultaneous growth in woman-hatred and the insistent voice of anti-feminist women in an arena where many believe women should be excluded, could cause greater strife rather than more? I've often thought how much nicer it would be if I had never let on that I was female (at the Spearhead) b/c it really seems to distract from whatever the issue at hand may be.

;) I kind of (and understandably so given its direction) thought you might have received it with many an eye-roll. Take your time, but I'm still interested on your opinion of it, although to be honest, it was written while impassioned and perhaps was not as thought out as it should have been.
