Why Lots of Feminists Are Dumb

SJWs in a nutshell regarding video games.

Yep because the choice to play as a sentient ape and having representation in video games that we enjoy is totally the same thing. No unfortunate implications there.

I don’t get why such a small number of people should have such large control over an entire industry.  And before you spout statistics showing the high percentage of women who play video games, almost every single one of those studies defines video games as computer/console games in addition to mobile games. Just because an astronomical number of females play games like Candy Crush, it doesn’t warrant them being able to control the industry of actual console/computer video games that is almost entirely male.

IF the one-in-four statistic is correct—it is sometimes modified to “one-in-five to one-in-four”—campus rape represents a crime wave of unprecedented proportions. No crime, much less one as serious as rape, has a victimization rate remotely approaching 20 or 25 percent, even over many years. The 2006 violent crime rate in Detroit, one of the most violent cities in America, was 2,400 murders, rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults per 100,000 inhabitants—a rate of 2.4 percent. The one-in-four statistic would mean that every year, millions of young women graduate who have suffered the most terrifying assault, short of murder, that a woman can experience. Such a crime wave would require nothing less than a state of emergency—Take Back the Night rallies and 24-hour hotlines would hardly be adequate to counter this tsunami of sexual violence. Admissions policies letting in tens of thousands of vicious criminals would require a complete revision, perhaps banning boys entirely.

— Heather Mac Donald, "The Campus Rape Myth".

This alleged “statistic” was culled from a survey of 3,000 college women in 1982, conducted by Ms. Magazine.  These women were asked only three questions:

  1. Have you had sexual intercourse when you didn’t want to because a man gave you alcohol or drugs?
  2. Have you had sexual intercourse when you didn’t want to because a man threatened or used some degree of physical force to make you?
  3. Have you had sexual acts when you didn’t want to because a man threatened to use some degree of physical force to make you?

The trouble is, many of the women the survey counted as “victims” did not actually feel that they had been raped, especially not the entire third of the alleged “victims” that continued to have a consensual sexual relationship with their supposed attacker.  Others that had consensual one-night-stands that they later regretted were also counted as “victims”. 

When you have to lie about the prevalence of a crime, you’re not doing women any favors.

Feminism is supposed to be empowering, not to send us cowering.

Rape is not the “epidemic” that people are trying to claim it is.  It has actually decreased dramatically in the past few decades - up to 80% since 1979, despite an increase in the willingness of victims to report them.  This is even further supported by data directly from the U.S. Bureau of Justice.

The only thing that HAS been increasing are FALSE reports of rape, which do a lot more harm to the lives of others than you may want to believe.

Third wave feminism is operating under far too many logical fallacies.  The Big Lie Technique is readily apparent in the use of the very “statistic” above which has time and again been proven to be false.  Overgeneralization continually tries to paint all men as monsters, when science has shown us that there are many psychological and biological factors that come into play to create someone with the potential to commit violence

If you have to spread lies to support your cause, how much of a cause could you possibly have to begin with?  And what are you saying about femininity itself when you want so badly for us to live in constant fear?

How is this supposed to be encouraging women to be strong if all you let us aspire to is to be victims?

How is this encouraging women to be independent if you try to make us believe that we can’t take care of ourselves?

How are you helping women at all if you have to lie to us?

If only feminists were capable of using their brains — they wouldn’t necessitate any research to determine that the “1 in 4 women” statistic is bullshit. Good job with this post!

Anyone who reblogs this with a load of text trying to justify their shitty actions is only further proving my point, so I dare you.

I fixed a painfully obvious spelling mistake. Please reblog this version.

I could not agree more

Not to mention the number of SJWs who are proudly homophobic (its okay for a feminist to be homophobic against gay men) transphobic (again its okay to shit on trans men teehee) transphobic in general (TERFs and the transtrenders who call trans people “truscum” and actually campaign to dislodge them from their own movement)

She’s right. This third wave feminism has become a competition to see who is the most oppressed and who is the most tolerant of everyone else (while simultaneously being intolerant of everyone who doesn’t agree with them). It’s pathetic. Just stop.

Fat activism and body positivity

Sort of unrelated to bashing feminism (but directly related to bashing flawed ideology), but here are my thoughts about “fat activism” and “body positivity” shit on tumblr:

If you’re overweight, that’s fine and if you’re happy with being overweight, that’s also fine. But don’t promote it as a healthy lifestyle. It’s okay to love your body, but it’s still unhealthy.

feminegro asked: Also, I know that there are irrational feminists, because every group of people has a crazy faction. But...feminism is still important. I mean, as long as the goal remains the same (gender equality) and remains reasonable (meaning no blind hatred of all things male or calling everything sexist), I think feminism is still ok. Right? Because not everything is equal, and nothing will ever be completely equal. Things like sexism and racism will always be around, but we can at least work against it.

But the end goal isn’t the same. I see gender equality as men and women sharing the same amount of benefits and the same amount of adversity. Most feminists see gender equality as receiving the same benefits as men but not the same adversity. 

The problem with the feminist movement is that it directly contradicts the definition of equality.
