Gay men: accomplices to feminism

November 3, 2009

Still too sick to write anything much, so here’s a link to the blog of someone who doesn’t have the flu:

Why straight men rationally dislike gay men

So here’s a perfectly rational motivation that straight men have to make homosexuals knock off their gayness: their interactions with (straight) women represent a form of pollution. Gay men are always there to convince a woman that she doesn’t need to lose any weight, that any guy would be lucky to get with her, that she still has plenty of time before she has to settle down, and that she shouldn’t feel guilty about being a slut —

If Agnostic thinks gay men exert a bad influence over straight women, he should just try dating as a lesbian.

A Hysterical Male Feminist, Fathers’ Rights, Science Links, and a Joke

July 9, 2009

Well, first, it turns out that the feminist who attacked me over at another blog is actually a man. That’s pretty sad; even nowadays, most men present their arguments with facts and logic, feelings only being a sideline, whereas this unmanly guy presented his feelings about my post.

Anyway, apparently he posted another attack on me at his own blog, which you can find linked in the comments on mine, and indicated that he wants a “conversation” with me. What is this, an intervention? I brushed him off and contemplated the sad depths to which too many men today have sunk.

So, having refused his generous offer of enlightenment to the wonders of egalitarian myths – why do they always think it will only take a few nicely worded arguments to overwhelm a lifetime of experience, plus the piles of hard data I post here? – let me move on to other things, because I’ve spent too much time on this already. Sometimes when you hear stupid arguments and realize that grownups are roaming the world believing them, your brain just won’t let it go until you’ve formulated exactly what’s wrong with their claims. I’m sure a lot of you fellow bloggers know what I’m talking about; it’s why we blog. But on to the backlog of links I’ve got to share with you:

I found another Father’s Rights blog: F.R.A.M.E.D. Family Rights And Many Ending Discrimination. Explorer keeps giving me trouble when I try to open it, but Flock does fine.

Sex On The Brain

New evidence on sex differences in people’s brains and behaviors emerges with the publication of results from the British Broadcasting Corporation’s (BBC) Sex ID Internet Survey. Survey questions and tests focused on participants’ sex-linked cognitive abilities, personality traits, interests, sexual attitudes and behavior, as well as physical traits.

Here’s something interesting: Homosexual Men Have Lower Incomes Than Heterosexual Men, But Lesbians Have Higher Income Than Straight Women Support for my contention that lesbians are smarter and have a better work ethic than straight women. Admittedly, to fully support this, we would have to adjust for motherhood. Straight women are, obviously, more likely to be mothers, which means they’re going to spend more time out of the workplace and be more tired and distracted if they do try to work.

I’m always interested in data about the biological basis of homosexuality, not only because I’m gay, but also because it punches holes in the “women are inferior because of societal conditioning” theory. Gay men’s brains work more like women’s, even though they were societally conditioned to be men. And lesbians’ brains work more like men’s. If you look around for scientific studies on homosexuality, you’ll see this again and a again. Here’s a couple of examples: Remember I was griping the other day about the way women insist on asking for directions from random strangers instead of looking at a freaking map? Gay Men Navigate In A Similar Way To Women, Virtual Reality Researchers Find. Does this mean they bitch at their partners to ask for directions?

Also, Symmetry Of Homosexual Brain Resembles That Of Opposite Sex, Swedish Study Finds. This site has a lot of interesting data about sex differences, even though it tries hard to put a feminist spin on it all.

How face and body shape varies with masculinization and feminization.

Male/Female Intelligence Differences This blog post has a couple of good links.

And here’s a humorous article: Feminism: Destroying the Planet

In a flash of insight, it hit me: this must be feminism’s fault, somehow. Those pushy women have tipped the balance of the universal order, and thrown Nature’s intricate equilibrium out of whack. Fortunately, I was handed just the tool I needed to prove this obviously-correct hypothesis by Brad DeLong, in the form of Gapminder World from Google. Check it out, peeps: here is a graph of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, as a function of the ratio of girls to boys attending school in different countries.

Lesbians and Feminism

June 26, 2008

If the measures of feminism could be confined to lesbians, there wouldn’t be a problem. Almost no straight woman really wants to work outside the home, but a lot of lesbians do. Straight women are by definition designed to get men to work for them, which is appropriate in a marriage, but lesbians naturally lack that programming and will actually do their jobs.

Much as I hate to admit it, it was my sort – dykes – who were really responsible for feminism. Most of us genuinely have no comprehension that straight women are fundamentally different from ourselves. Liz Cady Stanton once wrote to her girlfriend and fellow suffragette Susan B. Anthony, “Such pine knots as you and I are no standard for judging ordinary women.”

So a tiny percentage of females, namely lesbians, campaigned to force on all women what is good only for us. Of course a lesbian can’t understand that straight women *want* a husband; we don’t want one, so why should they? Most of us dykes have a large masculine component to our personalities, so naturally we assumed that because we want the same things that men want, like autonomy and a career, of course all women want those things. Never mind that few of them had made the slightest move in that direction, and that nearly all of those who have it now are miserable. The things that make straight women happy and the things that make lesbians happy are completely different.

Artful Dodger, a while back, pointed out another wrinkle that hadn’t occurred to me. Back when open homosexuality was out of the question and women had little choice about getting married, lesbians ended up married to men. A lot of these dykes probably had no idea what their true desires were. What they did know is that they didn’t like heterosexual intercourse and they just didn’t grok the relationship between man and wife. Contrary to what Hollywood tells us, most marriages of yore, including arranged marriages, were happy ones. This is partly because heterosexuals enjoy heterosexual intercourse and committing it is a bonding act. Also, straight women need and enjoy having a man to look after them and guide them; they need male authority in their lives. They might resist it, but that is just to reassure themselves that their husband (or father, or king) is still strong enough to assert himself over her.

(It is also because people did not have excessively romantic expectations of marriage being easy and blissful, and understood that they would have to work to get along with the spouse they were stuck with. They also knew that even if their marriage wasn’t perfect, life had other compensations, such as children, family, religion, etc.)

But a lesbian isn’t wired to respond to male authority, and doesn’t enjoy sex with men. This meant inevitable conflict in the marriage. The husband would wonder why his wife didn’t submit to him as the wives of his friends submitted to them, and why she was always evading sex and showed so little enthusiasm when they actually did it. At best, this would lead to many quarrels; at worst, he might end up beating and raping her. Thus confirming her bad impression of men and marriage.

And by the way, this wouldn’t just have been true of the era of arranged marriages. This could have happened in the first half of the twentieth century too, when women had few career options and societal pressures to marry were enormous, and lesbianism not even presented as an option. Those dykes who didn’t clue in to their own nature would have married for security or in hopes that once they got started, it would work out well; after all, they no doubt knew a lot of women who were happily married.

When it didn’t work out, they concluded that the problem was not that they had unusual needs, which they did, but that all women were as miserable as they were and needed to be “liberated”. Hence, feminism. This is why many of the major feminists have been lesbians.

Genuine lesbians ended up paying a high price for this in the 60’s and 70’s, incidentally. Many of them had been out of the closet in the 50’s, many doing the butch-femme thing, braving the ostracism and harassment they received. Then in the 60’s, some radical feminists decreed that “the only real feminist is a lesbian” and started sleeping with women even though they were straight. (These “lesbian-feminists” always went back to men eventually, often breaking the hearts of their genuine-lesbian girlfriends.) As part of their bullshit political agenda, they all wore hideous clothes, like overalls and construction workers’ boots (women should never, under any circumstances, don the latter), shaving their heads, and all looking as butch as possible. They would inform the genuine lesbians, who’d been out before it was cool, that theirs was the “right way to be a lesbian”. I once read that a lesbian who opened a lesbian bar in the 60’s confided to a rare femme who walked into her place, “I’m glad you’re not a feminist. I hate feminists.” The irony!

Feminism has only benefited two groups: aspiring dictators, who know that women are much easier to manipulate and subdue, and lesbians. One group is evil and will destroy all of the others, the other constitutes maybe 3% of the population. For these two groups, the others have been rendered miserable.
