The fact that feminism is based on an overwhelming ignorance of what makes men tick is not terribly surprising. What might seem more surprising is that feminism is based on an equally overwhelming ignorance of what makes women tick.
The fact of the matter is that feminists don’t understand women because they don’t like women. Feminists believe that the only thing worth being is a man. They want to behave like men and they want to think like men, because they despise women. They hate any and every manifestation of femaleness. They hate themselves for being female. That’s bad enough, but they hate other women for wanting to be female.
The entire program of feminism is based on bullying women into behaving and thinking like men.
This is of course disastrous in almost every area of life. It is the reason that feminism has played such a key role in the destruction of the family.
Every thinking person is aware of feminism’s rabid hostility towards family life. What is perhaps not quite so obvious is the catastrophic effect of the feminist agenda on sexual behaviour. When it comes to sex there are two strands of feminist thought. There’s the “all sex is rape” strand and the “girls just want to have fun” strand (for these labels and for many of these ideas I’m indebted to this excellent recent post on the Upon Hope blog).
Both strands of feminist thought are equally hostile to normal female sexual behaviour. The first tries to bully women into giving up heterosexual sex altogether (which is of course very convenient as it provides more opportunities for the lesbian predators who find a happy home in modern feminism). Fortunately most women are uninterested in being coerced into lesbianism. The second strand is perhaps even more destructive. It results in women being pressured into behaving like men when it comes to sex. And that not only just doesn’t work for most women, it can lead to tragic and self-destructive behaviour.
This is where feminist ideology (as so often) comes into conflict with reality. Men want love just as much as women do but men are capable of separating sex from love. A man can not only have sex with a woman he doesn’t love (or doesn’t even know) - he can have great sex in such circumstances. Women, as a general rule, cannot separate sex from love. If they try to do this and if they give in to feminist pressure and try to practise male sexual behaviours they end up feeling not only empty and cheap but degraded as well. And since feminism has taught them that nothing can ever be a woman’s fault and that women never have to accept responsibility for their actions they often react by blaming men.
The effect of feminism on female sexual behaviour is destructive enough but feminism has also played a part in changing male sexual behaviour (a fine example of the good old Law of Unintended Consequences). Feminism has not only convinced women that promiscuity is good and that if they don’t enjoy being promiscuous then they’re either prudes or brainwashed by the patriarchy, it has also encouraged men to consider promiscuity as normal female behaviour. It has encouraged men to assume that women approach sex the same way men do and that therefore they should assume that a woman who accepts a date is naturally going to give them sex.
In other words, insofar as there is any reality to the feminist bogey of “rape culture” that rape culture has been largely created by feminism.
Another example of the delusional nature of feminism when it comes to sex is their strident campaign against “slut-shaming” which is naturally seen as yet another example of patriarchal sexism. In reality there are very good reasons why, for most of human history, most women have not wanted to behave like sluts and have mistrusted the small minority of women who do behave like sluts. Apart from the fact that such women have a tendency to wreck other women’s marriages they also spread sexually transmitted diseases. Today, as a result of the sexual revolution that was fueled to a large degree by feminists western countries are seeing rates of STD infection reaching epidemic proportions (as pointed out in this post on Stuart Schneiderman’s Had Enough Therapy? blog).
Women have had very sound reasons for avoiding sexual promiscuity in the past. Feminism, by bullying women into trying to behave like men, has doomed women to unhappiness. The feminists don’t care about this because they hate women anyway. Feminism is simply organised misogyny.
