What the Sisterhood Talks About
in Closed Sessions
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.
And yes: I BLAME FEMINISM!
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.
