GC Theory - Lecture 10
"It seems sensible, at this stage, to pose the question: why is all this happening? The answer I can offer up, for the purpose of this lecture, is not historical but psychological: it offers explanation through reference to the mental state of feminism's operators. There certainly are historical processes at work, explored elsewhere, but no social movement survives purely for the sake of its history. Nobody is born a feminist. There must be some stimulus, or stimuli, working to remodel formerly non-feminist women and men into activated feminists. But we cannot explain feminist conversion by the agitation of those already existing feminist activists. We can certainly believe that feminist activism plays a role in recruitment, but this is not adequate as an explanation. Why would an individual then commit to feminism, rather than any other particular social movement whose advocates engage in agitation for the purposes of ideological recruitment?"Next, Adam Kostakis goes on to talk about how feminism offers catharsis to man-haters, and a socio-cultural space in which they can congregate, share their hate, and gain communal reinforcement for it. And subsequently to this initial stage, Adam informs us, the man-haters (both male and female) will realize they are in a position to embrace activism and actually damage men -- that is, to swing their hate into practical, real-world action.
Personal confession: I have, from time to time in the course of my varied existence, and especially when I was younger, experienced sharp and often bitter conflict with so-called traditional males and maleness. I reckon that makes me one of those celebrated "sensitive males" which the feminists used to call for.
And guess what?
I despise feminism with every single molecule I've got.
