A Radical Feminist (s) eeeeemmm Speaks!

 

I don’t usually bother reading, much less commenting on the avalanche of written diarrhoea that spews from the keyboards of numerous feminists. Because to be honest, the level of both the writing and the content of such screeds is so abysmally low it is tiresome, a bit like having a fly buzzing about one’s head.

This little gem though came to me via:

End Misandry and Toxic Feminism Now. https://www.facebook.com/groups/394293634027074/

It is the product of this delightful little coven of intellectually challenged feminist(s) (are there any other kind I wonder?) I digress.

http://feministwaves.com/why-women-make-better-leaders-than-men/

Sigh.  To save you the bother of having to click on the link, here it is in its entirety.  It is a short but fairly typical example of the sheer lack of cognitive ability of many feminists.

“Let’s be honest for a moment here. If socially-constructed colonialist gender roles were reversed and women had historically joined the workforce and men stayed at home in the kitchen the world would be a much better place.

 For starters you wouldn’t have bankers pillaging the global economy to benefit their own self-interest – research indicates that women, unlike men who only think about themselves, think about how their actions affect others. No woman would take a multi-million dollar bonus while her fellow citizens were left drowning in poverty.

 Think about it. What is twenty-first century capitalism missing? Why are all these giant corporations exploiting the environment and the weak? It’s because corporate America is still an old boys club. Imagine a corporate world dominated by feminine energy. Imagine a world where corporations had compassion and empathy for their employees, a world where the collective interest is always held in higher regard than self-interest. Imagine a world where female leaders worked together to solve their disputes collaboratively as opposed to resorting to patriarchal expressions of masculine domination like war.

 Many of these age-old problems such as hunger, poverty, war and abuse would disappear, virtually overnight, if women were in charge of the world.

Have you read it? Excellent, shall we continue so?

The essence of this toxic little diatribe is – men suck, women don’t, men bad, women good.

But this is not why I’ve chosen this particular piece of drivel to comment on. It is these two little gems; the first is the blog owners About Us. (note the “Us”)

“Lisa Cox is a 34 year old graduate student in women’s studies at the University of California Berkeley. Miss Cox is an icon in radical feminist circles across the globe – actively promoting the progress of women in societies throughout the world.

 Feminist Waves aims to promote an end to the oppressive male patriarchy that continues to exploit, belittle and domineer women. We will actively fight for the dignity and respect that women deserve as equals in the modern 21st century.”

I admit it, this did make me laugh, it amused me, and was I of a mind to be indulgent of MISS Cox, which I am not, I might have just have taken a microsecond to laugh, move on and never have this inane rabid little person enter my consciousness again.

The “graduate of women’s studies” certainly explains the limited intellectual ability displayed by MISS Cox, though several things stand out, she/they (does MISS Cox suffer from multiple personality syndrome I find myself wondering, as she/they have named this section “About US”) describes herself/themselves as “an icon in radical feminist circles across the globe” seriously? An ICON! In “radical feminist circles” no less.  Pardon me while I go suppress an uncontrollable urge to fall around the place laughing.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand, back.

The use of the word MISS is intriguing, tut tut MISS Cox, Robin Morgan, Gloria Steinem et al would be sooooooooo disappointed in you.

It is in this next section called “What is Feminism?” That bears rancid fruit.

“According to Webster’s dictionary, feminism is defined as the belief that men and women should have equal rights. Powerful women like those pictured above never stopped at simply being “equal,” and neither should any other woman. Feminism is NOT the the desire to be equal, our movement has never been about equality, it transcends that. Our movement is about pushing the limits of equality, past where men stand and onto new frontiers. We women should not have equal rights, but a new set of rights specific to us. This set of rights should clearly possess all of those that men possess, but also more. My version of feminism casts aside the boundaries placed upon us by the patriarchy and asserts itself ahead of the pack, above the cocks who try to control us.

 So what is feminism, then? Feminism is the uncanny and pervasive feeling that the rights of women are never sufficient, no matter the case.”

Above this paragraph MISS Cox has posted some photos of “powerful women” such as, (well the ones I recognise), Oprah Winfrey, Ellen De Generes, Queen Elizabeth II, Michelle Obama, Christine Legarde. I have no idea who the remaining four women are, and nope, didn’t click on the photos to find out.

Before we move onto these “powerful women” let’s just take a closer look at MISS Cox’s “definition” of feminism, we can of course immediately discard the Webster’s dictionary version.

Her/their own unique “definition” is much more revealing, such as for example this:

“……..Feminism is NOT the the desire to be equal, our movement has never been about equality, it transcends that. Our movement is about pushing the limits of equality, past where men stand and onto new frontiers. We women should not have equal rights, but a new set of rights specific to us. This set of rights should clearly possess all of those that men possess, but also more.”

There you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth, or ass, whichever you prefer; feminism is about female supremacy, in fact in black and white, MISS Cox proudly declares that feminism has “never been about equality”

Gotcha!

It is obvious that not only is MISS Cox utterly off her/their trolly, but she/they are so convinced of the rightness of her/their belief that she/they have put it into the public domain.

So, her/their “powerful women” that she/they used as examples? Where shall we being? Well, as MISS Cox’s contention is that if women were in charge, it would be rainbows and lollipops all round, so let us take a closer look at Ms. Christine Legarde, the head of the IMF (International Monetary Fund), in May of this year Ms. Legarde narrowly escaped being charged with fraud and forced to resign as head of the IMF. Oops!

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/imf-managing-director-christine-lagarde-evades-fraud-accusation-8631884.html

Michelle Obama is MARRIED to the most powerful man in the world, or so received wisdom would have it, in and of herself she holds no legitimate ELECTED power, though of course her influence on the President of the United States is unknown. For what it’s worth she appears to be quite fond of him.

Queen Elizabeth II is the hereditary head of state of a parliamentary democracy, her “power” is symbolic and she also wields no statutory or legislative “power”

Oprah Winfrey is just rich, stinking rich to be sure, and she does have enormous influence, but “power”? I’m not really familiar with Ellen De Generes, but isn’t she a talk show host?  Wasn’t she a comedian? What “power” does she wield? Other than an ability to make people laugh, a bit like yourself MISS Cox.

 

Edit: I took a closer look around MISS Cox’s blog and there are two possible conclusions, one she/they are in need of some serious “intervention” and a decade or two of heavy duty therapy, or alternatively she/they are taking the piss. Either way, it is a cesspool of stupidity, inanity and mindless witterings.

      You seem to betray yourself here Lisa, may I cal you Lisa, or would you prefer Miss Cox? If you are just taking this piss, surely you expected a response taking you down, you hysterical anger and the jaded “classic “Just because u have no luck w the womyn.” followed up by the “Anyway I’m sorry u can’t handle a female using her voice to stand up for her beliefs” convenient and short sighted, again typical cop out from standing up for yourself.

      Keep throwing your toys out of your pram for not getting your way.

      To see someone say they are doing one this and in such a short comment clearly show they are not, is impressive, even by feminist standards.

      You just keep having you tantrum and using everyone who says you are wrong to prove you right. You do more to destroy feminism than anyone outside it could. Thank you my dear. I’m of to have sex with one of your family members, can you guess who? oh la la

    LMAO!!!! 🙂

    I don’t usually use “text speak” but, in this instance it is appropriate. I knew MISS Cox would respond, yes my dear, just as you knew I had a rummage around your blog I knew you had popped in here.

    Whatever you were going to say I was going to “approve” and as you can see – voila!

    You are, it must be said, such a delightfully rancid little creature. lol

    Now my dear little viper – listen carefully. I AM FEMALE. Shall I repeat that for you?

    I AM FEMALE. 🙂

    And so, I am going to “step aside” briefly and invite all those who wish to have at you! Free reign.

    Ladies and gentlement, boys and girls, I give you – MISS Lisa Cox.

    Few ground rules: Though I “allow” a little colourful language, I use it myself from time to time, when appropriate, please do not post huge tracts of invective and foul language, make a point, express an opinion, whatever but I WON’T “approve” pointless rants. Ok?

    While I do appreciate the effort, the first poster is not Lisa Cox. I am Lisa, and while I can’t seem to disagree with “Lisa”‘s assertion that you’re an asshole I wouldn’t put it quite in those terms.

    Tell me, what first made you turn on women? Are you so enslaved by the patriarchy that you’re unable to see your own shackles? Please, I’d be more than curious to hear your story of how you fell so far beneath the boot of men that you will soapbox so freely about a woman attempting to escape.

      But my dear girl (s) as is quite clear from the first “Lisa’s” comment, she proudly and in CAPITALS declares herself to be LISA COX. Now, you say, she is an imposter, a fraud, a thief of YOUR identity.

      Good grief! I’m shocked; you must be in a tizzy, random persons posting willy nilly on the internet calling themselves “Lisa Cox”

      Ah, but wait, hmmmmmm, both “Lisa’s” comments as you can see below emanate from the same source, it is indeed a puzzle, a conundrum.

      Lisa [2] Second “Lisa” Poster
      Lisa – lisa@feministwaves.com

      Lisa [1] – First “Lisa” Poster
      Lisacox – Lisa@feministwaves.com

      Perhaps my dear you might need to do a little……….housecleaning, or rather blog cleaning. Though maybe, your use of “About US” really is a case of “multiple personality syndrome”in that case, just call yourself Sybil and be done with it! Problem solved. 🙂

      Alternatively, perhaps you only allow persons called Lisa to sign up to your blog, granted that is very odd, but each to their own. Ho hum.

      With regard to the content of your comment, so boringly predictable, so tediously unoriginal, so……….childish

      Have you heard the expression “curiosity killed the cat”?

      Flattered (ok – I meant amused) as I am by your “curiosity” about my life, in a patently ham fisted way to glean some delicious “quotes” as spoils of war to be carried away and held aloft as evidence of your vanquishing of an “enemy” tut tut – silly girl (s)

      But just for you, because you asked sooooooo nicely. 🙂

      I come from a long line of ancient Celtic Warriors, both male and female who fought side by side in long ago battles against tyranny, injustice and despots.

      By the way, I have planted some tantalising morsels for you, the question for you is this, will you recognise which is bait and which isn’t, and will you bite? 🙂

      And yes, I am just amusing myself and toying with you, though rapidly getting bored with you. 🙂

      lmao….. so Lisa number two comes in to expose Lisa number one…. then comes out with the exact same comment! this is brilliant, both Lisa’s have the same attitude to women critisizing feminist bigots ….. Anja, if she was a man can’t have sex, if a woman is self loathing and so oppressed she can’t see it!

      The “patronizing” tone is a hallmark of feminist propaganda pedlars. Lisa, you wrote an extremely weak, bigoted and hysterical article that is not backed up at all. It is empty twice told rhetoric.

      You don’t even understand how idiotic and simple minded your view of patriarchy is. Just as sending both posts from the same e mail address is!! In fact the later is less moronic than the former.

      It is, as Anja points out, testament to your own sense of self importance that you actually expect us to think you are so important you merit impersonation.

      Also by pointing out you will not disagree with someone being called an asshole, you are calling them an asshole.

      “Alternatively, perhaps you only allow persons called Lisa to sign up to your blog, granted that is very odd, but each to their own. Ho hum.” Nothing is beyond possibility with the lovely Lisa(s), I wonder how many more she has in there? I did always suspect that these feminists must need multiple personalities to function, one to behave like a sane person who functions though. Both Lisas seem dysfunctional…. one uses the other to directly call someone an asshole, the other uses the one before to do it again but trying to appear polite lol and superior really lmao.

      This can usually be boating, but even from a psychological/psychiatric perspective the Lisas do look like the first, documented, example of a person with multiple personality disorder, posting from the same e mail to clarify they are not the same people.

      This specimen, while having the typical feminist rhetoric from both personalities, is interesting, beyond feminism. There may be a third Lisa, oh, I’m like a child waiting for christmas… please …. which Lisa am I talking to now? I wonder do the speak in different voices? does one pee standing up!!!!!?

    Anja, I took the liberty of citing your blog in my last video, it was posted on AVfM.
    http://www.avoiceformen.com/updates/what-is-feminism/

    Lisa, Lisa and Lisa this may be of interest to you too. Notice I’m not passing judgement but using you as an example of modern Feminism to let the public decide for themselves. I believe you will be seeing more traffic on your blog, so think of this as a positive.

    Just a note: I lived in California a good portion of my life including 14 years in the Bay Area, my lovely wife of 25 years worked for PP Shasta Diablo headquartered in Concord. Her mother was and I emphasize “was” a staunch Feminist for many years. Today both agree with me that Feminism has become toxic. My mother in law discovered this when she became the Sr EEO officer for the largest retailer in the world at the time and dealt with the shenanigans. It completely change her perspective on the feminist narrative and to quote her “90% of the complaints were complete BS, 9% interpersonal issues, maybe 1% an actual EEO problem.”

    I share this with you so you can rest assured my critique of Feminism and ladies like you are not directed at women but at Feminist Ideology.

      Why thank you GOM, how very kind of you.

      With regard to Lisa, Lisa and possibly Lisa, I am sure she/they will be overcome by emotion that you were thinking of her/them. 🙂

      WHAT that emotion will be is anybody’s guess!

      Now, don’t anybody panic, but, I DO actually feel a certain (very small) amount of sympathy for poor souls like Lisa, Lisa and Lisa, a bit like Frodo when he rebukes Sam for always “putting Gollum down” when he says.

      “I have to believe he can come back”

      Feminism is poison to the soul, to the intellect, to the heart, but as evidenced by the many who have said “I used to be a feminist then…………..”

      One can only hope 🙂

    Do any women actually feel oppressed?… Do any men see women as lesser beings and make this clear to women? …. what on earth are the minimum requirement to be a feminist “Icon” and how many “are not like that”?

      “….Do any women actually feel oppressed?… Do any men see women as lesser beings and make this clear to women? …. what on earth are the minimum requirement to be a feminist “Icon” and how many “are not like that”?”

      Very “leading” questions there Daniel.

      Let’s just take this notion of “oppression” first. A heavily laden word, it comes with such images of tyranny, of hopelessness, of a life lived in a cage. Of course our raddled feminist (s) are immediately going to shriek – yes, we ARE oppressed – duh!

      Oppressed? Really? Having had the “benefit” of an expensive and it must be said useless “education”? Oppressed you say? Having the freedom to spout such utterly ridiculous poisonous crap, and not find yourself hauled off in the dark of night to disappear forever?

      So “oppressed” that not only can you bitch that the rights you already have are NOT ENOUGH, but demand MORE rights, the kind of rights that millions of men and women in cruel hostile places in this world can only dream of?

      So, perhaps the question is not “are you oppressed?” but what the hell makes you spoilt, pampered, overindulged wretches think you even KNOW what “oppression” is?

      With regard to men in essence “making women feel bad” and that basically is what your second question asks – I have and only ever had one response.

      “Build a bridge, and get over yourself, you whiney, snivelling, pathetic fool”

      How you “feel” is YOUR problem – how you ACT on the basis of those “feeeeeeeeellllings” becomes EVERYBODIES problem!

        Excellent answer as always Anja. They were sort of meant to be rhetorical questions, hence sounding leading : ) It is so amusing when you here femanists talk about the privileged never seeing their own privilege… first time I thought, interestingly insightful from a feminist, but of course they went of to blindly say this was why men couldn’t see their privilege IN A DISCUSSION ABOUT PRIVILEGE! It, as a phrase could apply to both and ask each side to self examine, but not for the feminists. You feel like saying, which gender has NEVER said they were privileged? Only women have been in this position.

        No argument there. I said something similar myself to another feminist re DV. She responded to me asking about the hostile response from feminists to men trying to get female aggressors and male victims(and children) recognised. Her answer was they “feel” it is men’s first step in trying to drown them out.

        Of course how you feel is how you feel, it doesn’t by itself justify any actions, as you say wftwtf13. To exercise this prior restraint so hostly based on how you “feel” someone “might” behave, with no back up or sense of requirement, for baking up your “feeling”, is typical of feminists.

        The fact she openly gave this as justification, represented a serious flaw in feminism. Not to mention the sense of entitlement and indigence at being asked to explain your actions.

        Say how you feel by all means, but don’t act like that is an end, it is a start to a discussion, well for rational people.

    Lisa Cox has an unrealistic ideology. “……..Feminism is NOT the the desire to be equal, our movement has never been about equality, it transcends that. Our movement is about pushing the limits of equality, past where men stand and onto new frontiers. We women should not have equal rights, but a new set of rights specific to us. This set of rights should clearly possess all of those that men possess, but also more.”
    I wonder what caused her to write the above paragraph? is her proposal even possible? How would families operate and function? Female supremacy is not going to work. Hating men just because she is angry is not going to work or solve problems. I believe men and women can work together to make this world a better place. Education and open discussion is what we need as we enter 2014.

    Hi Bitu and welcome

    Thank you for your comment, up to a point I agree with you regarding “men and women can work together” the problem is that an enormous gulf, a chasm of mistrust, hostility, aggression and hatred has been deliberately created by feminism to make that almost impossible.

    Yes, there are groups of men and women who can and do “work together” but it is the context of doing so surrounded by these vile creatures – like this radfem – constantly spewing out their toxic message.

    But, right thinking people, both men and women will prevail – the only possible outcome for those like this lisa cox – in all her “identities” is to be consumed by her own corrosive hatred.
