The Sadness of Feminism



For the last hour or so I’ve been reading about the horrific story of Elliot Rodger and his warped views on the world which resulted in him going on a killing spree. I was going to write about that incident today but then I got side tracked by the feminist frenzy it has caused. It appears that Elliot Rodger’s actions and the reasoning behind it has caused a reaction very much similar to when some meat is thrown into the lions. It appears that the damaged mind of one sick individual is now concrete evidence that all men across the globe are masochist’s who show nothing but misogyny towards women. I’ve been reading all the comments and been quite disturbed in some cases, it’s as if some of these women live in a world where women like Joanna Dennehy don’t exist. They seem to forget that women sometimes commit heinous crimes too.

Before we go on I will make it clear and be perfectly honest and say feminists are not my favourite type of people. I often find them to be very narrow minded and sometimes ignorant. To me they often come across as very bitter souls that seem to be very miserable and devoid of love, for what reasons I do not know. But in saying that it doesn’t mean I have a problem with a woman being a feminist. If you want to be hairy, be hairy. If you don’t want to wear a bra then don’t wear one. But don’t have a bee in your bonnet because the world doesn’t bow down to your feet because you do these things. Feminists often accuse men of hating women but it often appears that the boot is on the other foot in that it is these women who actually hate men.


Slut Walk

I found the “SlutWalks” of a couple of years ago to be a particularly confusing and embarrassing women protest. I fully understand the reasoning behind it, what Officer Michael Sanguinetti said was obscene. Nobody should be raped full stop, clothes should not even enter the equation. But to me these protests were self-degrading for women as they went on marches in protest of all us men who are “pigs”. For me it was just another example of the narrow-mindedness of feminists, that men just see women as sexual objects. Do we not live in a world where the standard procedure on hen night is for a stripper to visit? Do women not buy calendars of buff men with no clothes on as a bit of “eye candy”?

You see when it comes to sex and loose morals it works both ways. I could tell you a tale or two about women who are “pigs” too, like a married woman I know who had sex in the toilet of a bar with a man before going home to sleep in her maritial bed with her husband. Like the women I know who told her boyfriend she was going for a week away with her girls but went to Spain with another man. If you do a quick Google search of “Female teacher arrested” you will find that there is a small crisis within our schooling system of female teachers engaging in sexual relationships with their young students. If you read books like My Secret Garden by Nancy Friday you will find that most women are just as sexual as men.


It all boils down to that burning question that is a favourite of feminists, are women sexualised in our society? Without a doubt the answer to this question is yes, but this sexualisation applies to men just as much as it does to women. There is a war on society being waged through our culture, our culture is being destroyed and as a result so are our morals. It is quite ironic that the last post on my blog before any of these events happened was titled Rediscovering Lost Values. It is at this point where I feel most feminists are misguided, they fail to see that culture is manipulated and as such they play a big role in a divide and conquer tactic that is detrimental to human relations. Women want equality and it was only last week I was writing about Emmeline Pankhurst. But the thing with equality is that women have it now, it is no longer the 19th century where women are voiceless in the kitchen. It appears that like some gay rights activists, some feminists are fighting a battle that has already been won. Women now have the same rights as men and are excelling in the world. Now I know what all the hardcore defenders of feminism that read this are going to come back at me with, they are going to say not all women have rights and some are still oppressed in the world. That would be true but it can’t be denied that the majority of women in the Western world are free to do as they please.

I’m not a man that hates women, I love women. Although I’ve got no kids I imagine Will Smith was right when he said that he believes a man and a woman raising a family together is the purest form of happiness we can experience. But of course the family is under attack, women no longer want to be mothers, they would much prefer to climb that career ladder only to find it doesn’t offer the fulfilment they thought it would. I am 24 years old and single and the reason for this is because it is a very difficult to be a young man at this moment in time, Chris Rock was right when he said I feel sorry for the guys that gotta pick a wife out of this bunch. Believe it or not, despite what you constantly see on TV most men don’t want sluts, men want women who are ladies. Men want a woman who is going to be strong and loyal and the problem lies in that the modern young women is not a very nice person. She is self-centred, she is shallow and she is superficial. To find a young woman who you can have an intellectual conversation with that doesn’t revolve around fake TV shows, celebrities or fashion is very hard thing to do today. This no doubt applies to most modern men too and it is this chasm between men and women that is creating people like Elliot Rodger.

Human Needs

The point of today’s post is to try and balance the books because I’ve been getting pretty sick and tired of reading toxic spiel about men being evil monsters that lack respect. Some men are monsters yes, just like some women are. But in most cases mens needs are very basic and they are just the same as a woman’s needs; love, care and attention.

But of course in the modern world these things are seen as soft and weak. Men and women move around with their guard constantly up, nobody wants to expose themselves and become emotionally attached to another person because we live in a world of increasingly loose morals in which there is a high chance that you are going to get hurt. And when a person gets hurt on a deep soul level the pain can last for a very long time, in order to avoid this pain we are often once bitten twice shy. This is why we have a nation of men and women who see each other as the enemy and denounce each other as all being the same when it comes to immoral behaviour. It is this wedge being driven between man and woman that is the source of so many of the personal problems that people face today. My own personal opinion is that women who base their outlook on how men treated women in the 19th century serve no purpose other than causing further fragmentation.

“There are no people of colour problems, no ethnic problems, no women problems, no poverty problems…there are only human problems, and these problems can be solved because these problems have to do with what everyone wants in life.” – Jacque Fresco

If you feel I’ve misunderstood what it means to be a women in the modern world then please feel free to share your thoughts.

The Hypocrisy of The World


“And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say ‘Hey! Don’t worry, don’t be afraid- ever- because this is just a ride’. And we…. kill those people. ‘’Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.’ It’s just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that- ever notice that?- and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter, because…it’s just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy bigger guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defence each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over- not one human being excluded- and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace.” – Bill Hicks

I was reading through the day’s news last night and was recapping on the events in Ukraine when the hypocrisy of the government of the USA and the UK really hit me. I understand that we are all naturally hypocrites to a degree because our views and opinions often change depending on our mood or what stage we are at in our character development. But the level of hypocrisy which currently runs through every aspect of our daily lives is astounding. I asked myself why do we allow this happen and allow its effects to seep into all aspects of our lives?  What do I mean by this? Well our governments are corrupt, our justice system is criminal, our banks are the biggest fraudsters and our “Holy Men” are paedophiles. Michael Ellner takes it one step further:

“Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.”

Why do we take this? Why do we accept that this is the way things should be when a better world is so easily available if we want it? There is a line in the film American Gangster which goes like this, “the most important thing in business is honesty, integrity, hard work, family, never forgetting where we came from.” Change business to life and you have a pretty solid foundation of which you can base your actions on. However the modern world does not respect these qualities, these qualities will hold you back. You want to make it big in the world? Then you had best forget honesty. Our “leaders” are the biggest liars in the world yet they are also the most respected people in society, granted that respect is declining with every day that passes at a rapid rate.

Integrity? The world has forgotten the meaning of the word! There is no integrity in the dog eat dog, jungle society that has been created in our pursuit of the made up illusion we call money. Integrity in the modern world keeps you held down at the bottom. How many people sacrifice who they are and compromise their integrity in order to hold down a job so they can survive? How many people bite their tongues when it comes to speaking out against the countless injustices of this world so they don’t jeopardise their current employment situation? The answer is almost everyone. Look at the celebrities so many people adore. The Kardashian’s, famous from a sex tape. Towie, famous for being as thick as pig shit. Where is the integrity in what these people do and where is the self-respect in worshipping their every move? When you find it do let me know.

Hard work. Yes a fundamental if you want to get anywhere in life. But you had best be prepared for your hard work to go unappreciated and unrewarded. Slaves do work very hard, there can be no doubt about that. Everybody I know works hard yet they are always stuck in a rut, always a paycheque away from oblivion. Why is that? It is because that is how the money masters want it to be:

“People are only mean when they’re threatened and that’s what our culture does. That’s what our economy does. Even people who have jobs in our economy are threatened, because they worry about losing them. And when you get threatened, you start looking out only for yourself. You start making money a god. It is all part of this culture”- Morris Schwartz

Family. The family unit. The what unit? Family does not exist anymore. How many families are still together? I would say 2 out of every 10 people have parents who are still together and the family unit is complete, the country is littered with broken homes. The family has long been under attack ever since mum was made to feel she wasn’t a real woman unless she had a high flying career. Forget children, forget making sure they have enough love, care and education to survive in this world, just make sure you get to the top of that greasy pole known as the career ladder:

“We live in a society where women are demonised for having children in their teens when they are biologically meant to have them but there is no such stigma for women having children via IVF in their 40s. This is because what we see as the defining factor in bringing up a happy child is whether you have money, not whether you are still young enough to engage in play, or have the energy to love them properly. Still, you can use the money to hire some teenage girl. “Tommy! We’ve hired  someone who’s fun, we’ve hired somebody who likes you” and she can play with them while you look on exhaustedly with a mug of tea”- Frankie Boyle

Men come under attack too. So many men throw away their families these days instead of being the protectors and figurehead. I can’t prove this for sure but I would say deep down there are many unhappy people walking this land because their family has been completely and utterly destroyed.

And finally never forgetting where we can from. It seems so many of us can’t wait to forget where we came from. What happens in the rare instances when a person from a working class background does happen to beat the maze and does escape to financial freedom, do they lower the ladders and help the people below them up to their level? Nope they pull the ladder and they turn their backs on their roots to rub shoulders with the rich, the only people worthy of their time now.

I for one have had enough of this hypocritical system. I will tolerate it no longer. In all the recent talk of war people forget we are already in the middle of a huge war, the class war. Well I say they forget, most people aren’t even aware it is happening. They don’t realise this because we are victims of divide and conquer, which is pitting the poor against the poorer.

What does it matter if you are working your whole life away for a pittance to pay off debts and keep the wolves, aka the banks at bay. Or if you rely on a government hand outs from a government that is also heavily in debt to the same banks. What is the real difference? The difference is that the people who work for the pittance like to think they are better than the poor people when in actual fact we are all victims. We are all repressed, you and I do not come into contact with the people who truly benefit from this system, the truly wealthy move in circles that none of us get even close to. Their wealth is created off the back of our suffering and misery. When are we going to change this way of life?
