You Can’t Fool Everybody — Perhaps Not Anybody


From here,

This paper explores student resistance to feminist course content in social science courses cross-listed with women’s studies as an example of social reproduction at work. Drawing on both interviews and anonymous student course evaluations, student resistance to feminism is examined from the layered perspectives of faculty, teaching assistants and students in these courses. The author argues that a regime of rationality still operates in the academy and is made evident when feminist course content is met with continual dismissal or disavowal.

Basically, the author is stating that people, when exposed to Feminism in the classroom, and comparing it to the real world that they see; decide that Feminism is a bunch of bullshit.  Q.E.D.

 

Addendum by RichardP,
I was raised in a farming community. I went to school with males and females raised on farms (I was not). I was raised around families where those who could do the stuff that needed strength did it. It was never girls who had the strength that was required. It was always the boys. Yet, the girls had to be productive members of the family. So they did what they were able to do. The stuff that did not require brute strength. In-house kinds of things, like cooking ad cleaning.

I never heard the girls wishing that they would be allowed to do the stuff that required brute strength. They knew from experience that they couldn’t do it. They were pleased to do what they could do to contribute to the maintenance of the family.

Short version: I was raised around kids who had roots and a strong sense of being comfortable in their own skin – because they had duties they performed that contributed to the maintenance of the family, based on what they contribute. Those who were strong did the stuff that required strength. Those who weren’t strong did stuff that didn’t require strength. And so – both guys and gals grew up with a foundational understanding of gender roles – because they had lived them and understood why they had developed.

I have recently been thinking about what I wrote above and wondering how many of the movers and shakers of the feminism movement, if any, were raised in an environment similar to what I described above. I’m guessing not many, if any. Being raised in that kind of an environment – where everbody needs to contribute or the family doesn’t thrive, and you contribute based on possesing strength or not, helps one to develop a more realistic understanding of gender roles and why they developed. The article linked to above suggests that kids raised in this kind of an environment have better bullshit detectors than folks raised in an apartment in the city.

    Regarding the towering inferno from hell, Grenfell

    I have it from a good source that the whole story at Grenfell is being suppressed under threat of dismissal. Including: 40 bodies in one flat; source of fire not as reported and expected body count over 200.

    The source of the fire is currently said to be a fridge that exploded. Not even sure if that could have generated enough heat unless there were other factors involved. Ones that might start riots among the ‘communities’ if they came out? We may never know

    From the Glorious Patriarch’s link,

    I would suggest to Mrs May before she starts her EU negotiations that she picks up the sturdy book: Purnell’s History of the Second World War, reads it, takes it to Europe with her and uses it to batter the Germans and French around their heads. This is to remind them of the sacrifices the British people have made so that unelected technocrats can pretend to have their European utopia, a maggot-ridden zombie that’s coughing up blood and will expire, God Willing, within my lifetime.

    The underlying idea of Dunkirk terrifies liberals.

    The idea of the average person standing up when needed and saying
    “Right, we have a job to do.”

    Shames them because they haven’t the stomach to do it themselves.
    Scares them because what if the people stood up for what is needed.
    Worries them because in an emergency who would help.
