Reckless women and responsible men

Robert B. Parker’s crime novels are good, but they bug me in certain ways. For instance, there’s the Sunny Randall series.

Sunny Randall is a petite blonde private eye and former cop. Her boyfriend is a cop and her best friend is a huge, tough man. I think Family Honor was the novel I read. One of the criminals in it was a murderous crime boss who employed various pimps and dealers.

Having solved the mystery she’d been hired to solve, Sunny decided, at the end, to satisfy her personal curiosity about something that was going on, so she went to visit the crime boss in his office. Alone. IIRC, he answered whatever her question was and let her leave unmolested because her spunk amused him, or something.

When she emerged from his lair, she discovered that her boyfriend and her best friend were both standing by her car, waiting for her. They had found out about her plan to go hang out with a dangerous criminal and decided to show up so that if she screamed for help, they could run in and attempt to rescue her from the dozens of hardened criminals inside.

I think the author intended for this to be touching. Aren’t these guys sweet, so protective of this feisty little blonde? I think he also intended for us to admire her. Wasn’t she brave, going into a building full of vicious felons, no one of whom she could have hoped to defend herself against, all by herself?

What I felt – and this was long before I turned against feminism or became a misogynist male chauvinist – was disgust. Just to satisfy her curiosity, she put two men she cared about in danger. Maybe that’s why the legends about curiosity causing all of human misery are always about curious women, such as Eve who ate the fruit of knowledge and Pandora who couldn’t resist taking a peek into that box. If harm had befallen Sunny, what could these two guys have done against multiple armed criminals? They’d probably have gotten killed along with her. When women do reckless things like that, they endanger the men who will have to rescue them.

This is why in all past eras, men didn’t allow their wives or daughters to do idiot things like interview felons or go to war-torn Muslim countries. It’s also why they didn’t let women be soldiers or police officers. Real soldiers and policemen – meaning, male ones – have enough to do without having to also defend colleagues who can’t look after themselves.

The Mild Colonial Boy commented on a recent post of mine with a link to this post about Joanie de Rijk. The bit that caught my attention the most was this:

The worst part of it was that she expected the Dutch taxpayers to pay for her exotic trip in the form of ransom. That she was quite disappointed that this did not happen only illustrates the narcissistic feminism that is helping destroy our civilization.

This is what “liberated” women – liberated from the rules of civilized behavior – believe is their due. If they want to go into the hideouts of violent criminals or into Muslim dictatorships, it is the duty of the men of their own countries to risk their lives rescuing them from the consequences of these actions and pay via taxes for the consequences.

Men didn’t confine women to the home because of some sort of sadistic wish to oppress them. They did it to save their own lives.

    Exactly! And the same applies to the Scarlet Letter or the yellow ribbons they used in medieval Germany to mark a whore as such. It would have saved Paul McCartney an awful lot of money and heartache had that unspeakable thang he married printed "I am a hooker" right across her obscene face. Or rather across her tits, because that was presumably where Sir Paul had looked first and foremost. Men are much too straightforward not to be fooled by women in a society that knows no rules.

    Editrix, I have to say, it is an immense relief to hear so much common sense from another woman. Sometimes I utterly despair of my sex.

    I really think you are worse off in America than we are. I find the odd woman here who understands me, and if I say something like that here publicly (i.e. in company I don't know) I may get odd looks, but I'm not being slaughtered.

    Everywhere I look, in my circle of friends and acquaintances, if there is havoc, feminism has wreaked it. As my real name is well known and as it is a small world, I refrain from outlining examples.

    Another case in point: I am living in the former GDR for almost three years now. Funny enough, here is more stability among the people of my generation (between 50 and 60). Why? Because Stalinist Communism had kept women in check. They had to work, the children were looked after in day care, divorce was discouraged, as marriage was encouraged and people married young. Divorce was, although not illegal, simply no option. Now, as part of the "Free West", without the totalitarian pressure that had kept their mothers in check and "sexually liberated", the sluttyness in the younger women is incredible. To me, it seems to be worse than in the West, but that is mere empiricism.

    So while most other "isms" are anti-social, my conclusion is that the real havoc-wreaker is feminism.

    Interesting. In the book >The compleat chauvinist: A survival guide for the bedeviled male, Edgar Berman writes:

    "We're getting a little tired of the female leaders always pointing to their role model, the Soviet and Soviet-satellite woman worker. Few of them have ever been anywhere near Russia or Bulgaria, but on hearsay alone they extoll the virtues of those babushka'd huskies who can administrate a cement mixer or install a clutch in an earthmover. They keep reminding the U.S. housewife, for instance, that seventy percent of all Russian doctors are female. Of course, they don't level and tell their pigeons that those M.D.'s work for a wage that an unemployed U.S. gravedigger wouldn't sniff at (about $135 a month, the same as a Soviet sewer pipe worker)."

    Berman talks for quite a while about the reality of feminism in the USSR. For one thing, in its early years, they tried to practice "free love", but when its products reached adulthood, they were slothful and given to crime. After that, they had to pressure their citizens to get married and stay married. They hated the family, but they had to leave it just functional enough not to destroy their workforce.

    Ex-act-ly! They hated everything that was good and noble. They left the urban villas to decay if they couldn't be used for party- or communal purposes, but they hated the country, the farms and the farmers, with a passion. It is incredible what they did to the countryside and its dwellers, the backbone of our culture.

    The Western liberal rainbow-multicultural whackjobs, open to any dangerously moronic "progressive" cause, have very little, no: nothing, in common with Communist hardliners.

    You said you wanted me to correct your errors, so:

    Another case in point: I am living in the former GDR for almost three years now. Funny enough, here is more stability among the people of my generation (between 50 and 60).

    OK: that should be "I have been living", "Funnily enough", and "there is more stability".
