Over at Dalrock’s, commenter Anon writes,
In the end it really isn’t all that bad for the narrative either, because for nearly all feminists this isn’t about actually having women perform at the level of men, but about disgracing the institutions that they see as conferring status on men.
This is important, and needs to be stated more often. This is not well-understood even among most red-pill types. Everything from women in the military, to women in tech, to women in Wall Street, stems from this.
Note that when ‘feminists’ want to disgrace institutions that confer status to men, they want to dismantle the pillars that civilization is built on. Hence, ‘feminists’ are precisely opposed to civilization, to a degree no other group is.
This view is indeed not widely considered. Typically feminists have been taken on face value that they want to be Army Rangers, Fighter Pilots, Captains of Industry, etc. because of they are ambitious and because of inequality and stuff. Supposedly they want to be awesome like men, and at least implicitly contribute to society by being as such.
What is the reality on the individual level? If the path is cleared for them (affirmative action, free money, etc.), then they head down that path in a gallop. That is why there are so many women at universities. And of course, there are certain professions where no heavy lifting is required (HR, marketing, etc.). And of course, most everywhere the path upward in management is cleared. In places where the work takes skill, the skill take work to develop, and it is very obvious when one does not have the skill, women tend to shy away. Examples include the Army Rangers, STEM fields, etc. But then who could blame women for avoiding these fields, with the leg up that they have elsewhere. Men typically have no such luxury.
But what about the larger perspective? Are all of these women useful idiots? Are they being driven forward in an attempt to undermine and destroy these institutions? If so, it does appear to be working. Go to the Dalrock post that spawned the quoted commentScan through the comments. Look at how the military is being undermined. A larger question is: why is it being done? Out of spite? Perhaps they want everybody to live as third world types?
