In A Bind


What is Feminism to do?  In many ways they are the least sympathetic of all of the officially sanctioned victim groups.  Much of this is because many of their members are white; perhaps more so because most everybody sees that they have won supremacy.  Women now have most of the advantages, financial and otherwise.  What to do?

There is always the notion to turn up the rhetoric.  Part of this comes from Selma Envy, where every new push for this or that is likened to the gold standard of campaigns, the 1960s protest for civil rights in Selma, Alabama. Part of it comes from the fact that they just don’t know of anything else to do.  So they blab silly rhetoric about rape culture, unfettered free abortions,  etc.

Of course, every other officially sanctioned victim group is in a similar bind, all of them striving to be loudest with the most grievances.  Even when your group doesn’t air their grievances, they must support the latest cause of the day (currently transgenders in the US Military) for the sake of not being ignored.  With these groups, being ignored is the worst thing possible, is it not?

All of this leads to escalation of rhetoric by all of the groups, for talk is cheap and being noticed is the key.  This is why a normal person can feel that they are surrounded by grievance industry; and when you personally have your own difficulties and grievances, it all starts to fall on deaf ears.  For are all of these officially sanctioned victim groups lots worse than your lot?

Back to Feminism.  As the sanctioned victim group with the fewest grievances visible to average person, how can they compete?  Will the competition between groups lead to a virtue signaling apocalypse? Stay tuned.

 

Addendum case in point

Feminist Jill Filipovic can’t figure out why no one likes feminists anymore. She’s so puzzled, in fact, that she wondered about it out loud via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

    Side windows. No idea what it’s like in a jet that size, but it used to be how you landed most aircraft — rotated, the runway disappears. I think the most remarkable thing was getting it on the centerline; perhaps they used the ILS (radio navigational aid, showing lateral and vertical position) until over the threshold. (If one is running out of gas and the airport is fogged in, you fly the ILS all the way to the ground, and hope.)

    So there’s no runway view landing this plane — just two little triangles in your peripheral vision.

    A former NBC employee claims the network blatantly looked for “good-looking employees” and asked that she submit photos before being allowed to interview.

    Stephanie Belanger has filed a lawsuit against the network, claiming that NBC’s focus on beauty enabled a toxic, discriminatory environment, the New York Post reported Monday.

    In the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Belanger alleges disability discrimination, sexual harassment, and termination after she complained.

    Zoe Katz, 22, a senior, said in a two-page statement her attorney emailed to The Times that Boermeester “has been falsely accused of conduct involving me.” Katz confirmed that the statement was hers. Her attorney, Kerry L. Steigerwalt, said that USC alleged that Boermeester shoved Katz outside her home.

    USC suspended Boermeester in February while the school investigated what it called a “student-conduct issue.”

    Mark Schamel, an attorney representing Boermeester, said Boermeester was not permitted to return to USC following the school’s investigation, in which USC alleged that Boermeester assaulted Katz. Katz has denied this, as did Boermeester, through his attorney.

    In the statement, Katz said she and Boermeester have dated for more than a year. The Title IX investigation began, Steigerwalt said, after a neighbor witnessed Boermeester and Katz roughhousing. The neighbor told his roommate, who told a coach in USC’s athletic department that Boermeester was abusing Katz. The coach then reported the incident to the Title IX office.

    Katz said she was summoned to a mandatory meeting with Title IX officials, where she told investigators that the two were playing around. Katz was subsequently told that she “must be afraid of Matt,” she said. She told officials she was not. Boermeester has not been arrested or charged with a crime.

    Take his quote: Once a month, some women act like men act all the time.

    By the time I read Heinlein, I had been exposed to that “once a month” thing, both by myself and by attending an all-girls school and I thought his view was unwarrantedly rosy. If men were like women are once a month, there would be no civilization. At least, not any civilization that didn’t involve bursting into tears and punching holes in walls.

  18. In 2016 Black Lives Matter halted the Toronto Gay Pride parade, the second largest in the world. They held GP for ransom and won the concesion that uniformed TPD would not be allowed in the parade. Even though getting the cops to be supportive has always been a major goal of the gay community.

    Fast forward. 2017.
    TPD (known as Toronto Regional) wont participate or have their own float as requested.
    Plus off duty cops wont do free security as the past decade. GP has to pay for security.
    Plus Toronto city counsel pulls 50,000 in funding in protest.
    Plus TPD recommends cops not double hat and do paid security. Many agree so to control crowds of 100,000+ we have Paul Blary Mallcops instead of Torontos Finest.
    And the best. Several dozen TPD go to the NY Pride Parade in full dress uniform to show their solidasrity to the cause, just not in their home city.

    On the Heinlein subject, quoted by Farm Boy, the piece’s author Sarah Hoyt, breezily notes:

    Broadly, she is allied with the manosphere, or at least not a stranger to it; she’s the overnight blogger at InstaPundit (run by Helen Smith’s husband, Glenn Reynolds).

    I suppose she’s referencing the intergalactic pain of childbirth, which women undertake, medicated, for about 12 hours a couple of times. But I have no idea what the basis of her comment is.
