Oh What a Friend We Have in Feminism!
Some earnest feminist, out yonder, will watch this video and earnestly demand to know what this has got to do with feminism, and then earnestly make us understand how she deplores what happened to this ill-fated man and does not condone his suffering in any way.
All right. Fair enough. I will credit the earnest feminist for her good faith. And furthermore, I can allow that the evil "girlfiend" in this story might not think of herself as a feminist, or know much about academic feminist theory and suchlike.
So, how DOES all of this pertain to feminism?
Let me answer for the zillionth time, because I'm sure that somebody reading this right now has only recently arrived in these parts and cannot be expected to know it all.
Episodes like this are happening a lot more nowadays because feminist social innovation has generated a culture that naturally gives rise to such things. Feminism has empowered women to act the way this woman has acted, and to get away with it.
So that even if this woman is not personally a "feminist", she is a disease vector of feminist influence in society, helping to spread the consequences of feminist innovation by inflicting harm upon a man. Note how the police department "always took her side, even when they had no evidence to back up her story." That is exactly how the feminists want it to be, because feminist patriarchy theory and feminist anti-male law has taught police officers and criminal justice people to view MEN, sight unseen, as "primary aggressors".
Well it looks like the wheels of justice eventually turned in this particular man's favor, but that only proves that Perfect Feminism is not YET in effect. But they're working on it. Rest assured, they're working on it.
And so, earnest feminist, now you know what this has got to do with feminism. So my question to you is: why do you insist on calling yourself a feminist?
Really, what is your excuse?
For when you stick the word "feminist" to yourself, you are linking your good name to such injustice as this, and to a long list of other things which are very, very nasty indeed!
Your best plan is to stop calling yourself a feminist. Non-feminist people won't cut you any slack; they will not have the patience to hear your mewling lectures about "what feminism really means". Nor should they be required to do so. They can see perfectly well what feminism is, so kindly don't insult their intelligence. YOU are the one who doesn't know what feminism is, and THEY are the ones who will set you straight. Boy, will they ever set you straight!
So do yourself a favor, and do us all a favor.
STOP CALLING YOURSELF A FEMINIST.
