Another One Who Appears to GET IT

 I've noticed an accelerating number of women these days who sound like they have at least nibbled on the celebrated Red Pill. Cyanos Pool, the narrator of the featured video, says something verrry interesting. She claims that she hesitates to position herself as a "female MRA" because she does not quite trust the motives of other so-called female MRAs, and wants to distance herself.

Now THAT. . . .is nuance! I don't think I've heard anything quite that perceptive and reflective before.

She speaks of egalitarianism... there's a woman I know who is caught up in the feminist ideology... she also is a sucker for new wave ideologies and alternative fads in general... I just think sometimes, it's like she went shopping for a car, and instead of doing her research, and purchasing a reliable bargain, she went for the most expensive piece of flash on the showroom floor. It's going to require a lot of maintenance and expensive upkeep, break down more anyway, and use more gas on a daily basis. Insurance will cost more. It will get a lot of reaction from others, but much will be superficial praise, and differ from what people say about her in private. Some people may just avoid her and her little vortex of car problems, they're not interested in telling her she bought a flashy lemon, once she's already bought it, they don't want to put her down, and plus it's not worth the hassle. And of course, the payments just keep on coming, you never really stop paying for a car like that, and many people never stop telling themselves how much they like their expensive lemon, they have to keep justifying the costs. It's too bad, she should have gone for a decent condition egalitarian model instead, like the commenter here, and avoided all the problems for her and the people around her. But I guess as long as people keep buying them, they're going to keep making the femons. I mean lemonists. Whatever.

Nope. I would not be so hasty. "Egalitarian" is a concept that just about anybody can buy into, and on the surface you can't fault them for this. Sure, it's a philosophically flawed concept, and one that feminism has ruthlessly exploited. But never mind that -- the important thing is for people understand to that feminism does not seek equality. Once people get that reality in their heads, they have a better-than-even shot at gaining the higher degrees of knowledge.

Herstory revisionist. Feminism was never necessary.

Women have always held jobs, they have always voted. She speaks of feminism's original intention as a fight for equality - bullshit.

Feminism was, has been, and always will be about hating sex, and sexuality. If there is not hatred of it - i.e. "sex-positive feminism", it is simply an exploitation of sex and sexuality - i.e. "prostitutes".

The more revolutionary these people claim to be, the more they uphold the norm.

My old college bud is right on the money.

P.S. I will give er credit (arounf 4:50, for pointing out that it is a portion of women who are b roken and need fixing.

Unlike the traditional feminists who claimed that masculinity was broken - and many MRA's still insist that men are broken and need to be fixed - "think with their dicks", "white knight", "mangina" etc...

All of those things are derived from feminism of days past.

Feminism has screwed up many women - they need to be cured of that poison.

The only thing that resembles nuance is that a woman distrusts women MRAs.

Men MRAs have been skeptical of their motives from the outset.

The only thing that resembles nuance is that a self-proclaimed female MRA distrusts the motives of another female MRA.

Male MRAs have been doubting their motives for as long as I can remember - and actually offering good arguments for their beliefs.

hmm.. re the car thing, I meant, that she should have embraced egalitarianism, or humanism, things I think most people could "buy into", because they are generally for actual fairness, not just fairness for one group. I see it as less appealing, to my friend anyway, because she wants something extreme and exotic, a cause, a fight, enemies, sides, secret aspects that only insiders can understand etc. Humanism/egalitarianism I think would be more boring as a philosophy, but obviously better than feminism. You don't think so?
