The “third wave” feminist is a bewildered soldier of outrage culture, deeply emboldened by complex and contradictory pseudo-sociology pepper by meaningless terms dressed up as serious fact. According to your average women’s right champion, the most insidious and pressing issues facing women today are not genital mutilation, or underage marriages, nor sexual slavery. They are ‘‘mansplaining’, ‘micro-aggressions’, and the dire, and oh-so critical use of proper pronouns. Splayed across every Twitter feed, Facebook post and trendy T-shirt, and shouted with unwavering authority to crowds of pink vagina hats intent on “Smashing The Patriarchy” (whatever that means), you might almost miss the utter lack of meaningful definition tucked quietly behind the brazen facade, if you’re not paying attention. But despite all the hype, these terms are meaningless drivel cooked up to keep feminists in business as they steadily run out of things to complain about. Now that the well has all but dried up, the sediment that remains are perpetually miserable shrews expending boundless energy in making other women as brutally unhappy as they are. There is no other tangible purpose behind it.
“First Wave” feminism was focused on legal issues, primarily the right to vote.
“Second wave” feminism focused on social issues, like family and the workplace.
“Third wave” feminism focuses on projecting us as completely incapable and unworthy of the above. Nice job, ladies.
I’m a woman, so in saying this in public, I suppose I have just migrated over to the vacuum space where the Patriarchy is supposed to exist. I have yet to stumble across it, but I’ll let you know if it ever pops up.
Well, actually, I guess I already was. Whoops. I used to consider myself a “feminist” of sorts. I have a career, and for bonus points, in a male-dominated industry. I am opinionated, unwavering and flirt so strongly with the lines of polite conversation that it probably would take me out for a drink. I am female, and unapologetically myself. But for a culture that also uses “double standard” in its arsenal of buzzwords, I am vastly less appreciated than I am by my male counterparts. It reads like a bad joke, but the author is the punchline. Imagine if a man used the same language towards me, and threatened to snuff gleefully snuff out my voice. These people claim to want insist they want more female voices in the mainstream… as long as they agree with them. And yet they masquerade around as “Anti Fascist”. The irony. If I’m a traitor to the “movement”, I am a grateful defector. Because feminism is now the enemy of not only all women, but society as a whole. I want no part of it.
Feminists, SJWs and the woke-est of woke; you offer no added value to society. You masterfully eschew self-reflection and logic in favor of an echo chamber of constant outrage and perceived injustice. You are obsessed with picking at the scab of women’s liberation, trying to draw fresh blood, and are often seen lumbering around, finding bigotry at every turn. Yours is an ideology based not on equality, but misplaced victimhood. Instead of celebrating and taking advantage of the hard-won equal footing in the workplace our mothers fought for, you decry the conduct of male coworkers and insist ever accusation must be believed, without question.
Your causes have no credibility, no clear motivation, and no semblance of logic. The idea women in our society are still somehow under the thumb of men is a blatant lie; every opportunity available to men is also available to us. We have laws designed to protect us from rape, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, wage disparity, domestic violence, and other atrocities women in the third world face unfettered. You have no interest in progress or empowerment, perpetuating a fairy tale where “cisgender” white men are the embodiment of evil, and if my views differ from yours, there are somehow degraded to the product of a weak mind manipulated by an overwhelming misogynistic force dominating me. You favor ruminating on every disadvantage history has ever doled out, rejecting the progress it has as well. You need a good therapist, fixation on a past you cannot change is a sign of mental illness. You revel in the role of constant victim, abdicating all power to your sworn enemy at the first whiff of any personal accountability.
Your entire lives exist in a patently absurd loop of contradiction. You operate as if the only way to secure power is to steal it away from some one else. You don’t want equality – your aim is domination.
You want so badly to be visible in society that you pay no mind to what that means. You don’t want women to excel, simple exist, smack dab in the middle of the public lens so that your incessant complaints can no longer be ignored. You don’t want to proven equal, or so much as even competent. You simply want to create a blanket of outraged white noise to hide your terror at being exposed for the frauds you are. You are vapid attention mongers desperate for validation that you are brave, you are unique, you are strong in the face of adversity. You just don’t want to put in the actual work to authentically be so. You are the people who elected in women just to claim ownership for women. The same women who hysterically felt it empowering to hijack the State of the Union address and make it about their outfits.
You didn’t elect them as qualified candidates, or strong leaders. You elected them as vaginas. So self absorbed that the only round of applause an 82 minute long address could elicit is when the words “102 women in congress” were uttered.
This is not progress. This is appalling self-absorption, completely devoid of any substance.
So here’s the naked truth. Any woman who screams of her own ‘oppression’, yet has the means to view the world solely through the prism of gender, needs to take off the pussy-hat, put on a bra, pick up a fucking book, and start checking her own goddamn privilege.
