Men Have it Worse
This talks about data from a recent survey by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).. All in all, it offers a picture of reality that a feminist would not find comforting. It would suggest that in some very important categories, women are less victimized than men. Now, you might intuitively figure that if feminism wants what is good for women, then a feminist would be happy to see that women are not doing quite so badly after all. But such are the paradoxes, that it would actually make a feminist unhappy to see this, because it would suggest that in some very important ways men are more victimized than women. And THAT is a conclusion that would stick in the feminist craw in a very big way.
The average feminist would not find this material comforting, because the existence and raison d'etre of feminism as a whole depends on the continual production of anti-male spin. It is imperative that such production be kept up and periodically refreshed with new outbursts of moral hysteria, else feminism would loose its source of supply and ultimately perish.
The need to portray women perpetually as victims trumps even the man-hating joy that the feminists would derive from male victimization and male suffering. For it is necessary at all costs that women continue to be at least perceived as victims in as many categories as possible. And it matters little whether this perception derives from fraudulent reporting or from actual female victimization; the all-important desideratum is that the perception remain in place so as to exert the pragmatic force of reality in the interest of feminist politics.
So, if fraudulent reporting of female misery is not an option, then feminism's ongoing political interest is better served by actual female misery. Yes, even at the expense of women. Surely that is something to think about, if you are a woman considering feminism. Feminism's driving need is for anti-male spin. Such is the bizarre bottom line to all of this.
