Feminist arguments are Gordian knots…


Inspired by a comment by The Obvious Suspect aka Tarnished. A poetry comp.  The magic line, or a close facsimile, must appear in each entry. E.g. Feminist arguments are a Gordian knot The theory sounds wonderful but the reality’s snot They say it’s not just for women, but also for men They say the proof’s coming, but we need to know when They say to understand feminism, just look in the diction-ary But there’s nothing to find there but words vague…airy fairy Update Just found a video by Justicar where he analyses Hemione’s UN speech…cool

And there’s more…

    “Feminist arguments are a Gordian knot” ?
    No, Padawan thinks not
    When Spawny with his slasher like Alexander
    Hacked right through the lot
    He found not there what he expected to appear
    But Harry’s adopted child begot

    The theory sounds wonderful but the reality’s snot
    The adopted child complained
    A movie star face Harry has not
    Yet mine is beautifully planed
    “You’ll still inherit his riches, tot”

    Feminist arguments are a Gordian knot
    Tis only for women ’cause men lay forgot
    “It helps you” they cry, ever long and low
    But more of men’s problems do they yet sow

    “Do not hit a woman, you’ll reap naught but trouble!”
    But it’s hilarious when penis meets garbage disposal?
    “Women need more DV shelters, it’s true!”
    And what of the men who are black and blue?

    “Women attempt suicide too, you know!”
    Yet more men commit it the graves do show.
    “Women and children must be kept off the street!”
    And what of all the homeless men that you meet?

    “Women are raped more, especially on dates!”
    Only because ‘raped’ isn’t ‘made to penetrate’.
    “Divorce is a right for all!” they chant.
    Yes, but which sex applies for it at 70 percent?

    Alimony abuse, false rape accusations,
    Failed education, child support incarcerations.
    So many more issues yet plague men today.
    My friends, the answer is to go your own way!

    Live life to it’s fullest, do what you will
    Climb as you wish, and when you crest each hill
    Be happy, be joyful, to thine own self be true…
    But most of all, be aware that you’re doing it for you.

    How’s that? It kinda just poured out…

    I wonder if I should put this on my blog, too? It contains everything I find wrong with feminists who partake in the contrarian phrases I listed before…

    As I’ve told some who had (at the time) had seemed capable of unbiased conversation:

    I don’t actively loathe feminist ideology.
    The idea that women are oppressed by certain aspects of our society is true and the notion these need to be remedied is a good one. I support that.

    But it’s often forgotten that women have privileges that men do not, just as men have privileges women do not. Working for the increased equality of a single sex is all well and good IF YOU ADMIT THAT’S THE GOAL OF YOUR MOVEMENT.

    By stating that men are continuously privileged, you nullify any hope of truly listening when they do have problems.

    By saying men are indirectly helped by feminism, you are putting forth the opinion that they are therefore not in need of a movement of their own, and any movement that DOES purely address men’s issues is taking resources from feminism.

    By saying that everyone should be a feminist, you’re stating that women’s issues deserve the most attention in gender/sex conversations, at all times.

    By saying that all men blindly benefit from their privilege, but refusing to acknowledge that the same can happen to women, you’re creating a double standard that hinders all real communication.

    This is why I’m not a feminist. Not because I am afraid of using the label. Not because I don’t want women to have equal opportunity. Not because I have internalized misogyny. Not because I hate other women or want cis male attention. I’m egalitarian rather than feminist because it’s what I actually stand for.

    [Spawny says Go For It. I edited your comment to make it very clear that I was replying to this comment. I am with your egalitarian aims entirely. That said, I don’t believe honest debate is currently possible with them. Until it is I see the label as toxic. I don’t want slippery debates about dictionary definitions vs real world actions here. But help yourself (especially to your own comment)]

    I also don’t want to get into dictionary vs real life definitions…after all, I’ve been told by the same person that “misandry isn’t a word that any spellchecker or dictionary recognizes” and “when talking about the term sexism, most people know that it’s in reference to actions against women, despite what the dictionary says”. It surely is tiring to keep up with the vocabulary that’s suitable for your ideology to work, eh?

    If I knew Bloom’s email address I’d be inviting her, same goes for just about everybody over there.

    In fact there’s only one guy I wouldn’t.

    Last I crossed comments with him he was advocating guys letting women beat on them…because the women would just tire themselves out beating on the guys and realise that their attacks aren’t fruitful and give up the violence. No mention of what if guys don’t see that as acceptable behaviour from an alleged adult female / what if she’s armed with something? mattered to the old fool…my comment to him to ‘just die’ was deleted. He is the only one of the main characters that I have no interest in ever speaking to again. He’s a total fucking idiot beyond all redemption (just an opinion)

    I suppose I’m not interested in the snarky female commenters either, but they come and go. Of all but that one of the main gang? they’re all welcome to come chill when they want time off from the serious stuff. Or want to talk about the serious stuff while having some fun (ideal).

    Do you not get the feeling that some of the hosts wouldn’t recommend such an arrangement? Not a permanent split, but a ‘do the fun stuff somewhere else, come back when you’re in a serious mood’?

    Maybe it’s only me getting that vibe.*shrug*

    Padawan is a Kiwi and very much male
    But he dallies not with the Kiwi female,
    With testosterone setting his blood on fire
    He boards his boat the Pacific Flier,
    She then leaps forward like an unleashed hound
    And skims the waves with a hissing sound,
    And at cruising speed with the roar left behind
    She’s quiet as the air inside a mine,
    And with stars ashine in the glass of the sea
    She soars through a phantom galaxy,
    He roars out songs to every star
    And lets them take him where the maidens are.

    Hi Bloom, 😉

    better hope we’re disposable, because it seems that men might not even be turning up as much to be disposed of

    be aware that the numbers on the left of the graphs are not percentages! they are ‘in a 1000′, so to get percentages you have to divide by 10. There’re some small numbers there!

    Dalrock has other posts on first marriage rates (as does JFG – early posts by Han and Nem). Last ones I saw showed first marriage stops for women when they hit 35-40.

    As I said when we first conversed regarding you getting a new man…’Get on with it! Time is not on your side’

    All of which was meant to be in your interests, I believe that you understood that. 😉
