Let's take a trip in the wayback machine, way back to the year 2005:
The trouble with all of this, as I see it, is that it makes the personal political. There are potentially many reasons why a given woman might become a man-hater, and none of these reasons are truly rational. Bitter experience with a particular man, or a series of men, could make it happen. Plain old envy could also make it happen. And no, neither of these responses are truly rational. The first at least carries an aspect of moral justification (however flawed), while the second is just plain paltry and shabby. But both of them make the personal political because they disaggregate the common lot of human misery into "male" and "female" halves, because they ignore the male half and throw a spotlight on the female half, and finally because they inflate personal female experience into a political struggle of male against female.
Which is precisely what the Redstockings Manifesto
, the SCUM Manifesto
, and countless other feminist statements (both large and small) have promoted over the years. As you know perfectly well.
Moving right along, the following was framed as being "wit and sarcasm":
"Hello, my name is Mary Man-Hating-Is-Fun," one participant said. "I am 23 years old, and I am what a feminist looks like. Ever since I learned to embrace my feminist nature, I found great joy in threatening men's lives, flicking off frat brothers and plotting the patriarchy's death. I hate men because they are men, because I see them for what they are: misogynistic, sexist, oppressive and absurdly pathetic beings who only serve to pollute and contaminate this world with war, abuse, oppression and rape."
How convenient. Say any rotten thing you like, and if you say it is only wit and sarcasm . . . then it is only wit and sarcasm.
That way, you can publicly call men absurdly pathetic polluters and contaminators, and openly state that you hate them -- and it isn't really hate speech.
I thank Mary Whats-Her-Name for setting us straight on what "feminist nature" really is. I've been trying to make that clear for years. Of course, she is only being witty and sarcastic. Never forget that. So I reckon this means that I, too, am only being witty and sarcastic when I call feminists immoral parasites and narcissistic, sociopathic criminal scum who spread lies like a fly spreads germs. I am simply embracing my non-feminist nature when I say these ugly things about feminism, but that's okay, since I am only being witty and sarcastic. After all, that is what happens when I learn to embrace my non-feminist nature.
Feminism as a whole is fairly bubbling over with wit and sarcasm, like a happy barrel of sparkling champagne. Ever notice that?
"Tiny bubbles. . . in the whine. . etc".
So if you are in the mood for even more sparkling wit, scintillating sarcasm, man-hating, male genocide and so on, then download the Agent Orange files. Do it now.
