My cousin shared a rather interesting article with me today. It is from a VERY conservative publication called The Weekly Standard. This article talked about a concept called “Neo-Victorianism on Campus.” In the article, they talk about a contradiction that they see on modern college campuses that plays into their hands. See, I have long made a point about how the Puritan Feminists have been making things worse for women. Now I was given a new perspective. It’s no secret that I am annoyed by the new campaign against what these people see as an epidemic of rape at college campuses. These people are delusional, and what’s more – their delusions are working against them.
The article points out that whole movement for sexual liberation of women in the 60’s. It was a vibrant culture war against the prudishness of the 40’s and 50’s, running on the coattails of the larger culture wars being played out in the 60’s. This war got women to be able to be more sexually expressive. If only the women who fought those battles, who were worthy of the term “feminist” could see things now.
With the Puritan Feminists on college campuses trying to make VERY strict guidelines and making those in positions of authority enforce them, we are seeing the liberation that so many women fought for being gradually taken apart, one rape allegation at a time. And this isn’t just me talking. There was a recent article in Rolling Stone magazine about an alleged gang-rape that took place at UVA. It was a damning article, but as other reporters, who actually care about honesty in reporting, pointed out – there are problems with it. More and more, it looks like this piece was making allegations for which substantial proof did not exist, potentially dragging several people’s names through the mud.
Of course, that’s how it works nowadays. If a woman makes an allegation or rape, the Puritan Feminists and the public at large seem to take it at face value. Why this is is beyond me. The whole idea of “innocent until proven guilty” is gone. The article about UVA is proof of this. It’s now, “innocent until accused, which the social justice echo chamber will validate”. And if you think about it, it’s madness. After all, they say that 1 in 5 women are sexually assaulted or raped. That would mean that 20-25% of women on campus are the victims of sex crimes. As my cousin pointed out, that would make both men and women very afraid of going to college, if this sort of thing was proven to be accurate.
But it hasn’t been. The reality is that the 1 in 5 statistic is marketing. Brilliant, brilliant marketing. Something people forget is that most of the SJW women have degrees in Communication or Marketing or things like that. They know how to sell a product. And the product here is – women are constant victims and men are bad. The worst part about it is that they are using actual rape victims as props in a thinly-veiled misandry campaign. I find that kind of sick, personally.
In the end, though, there is a much darker implication. Think back to the women who fought for sexual liberation. Now, think about the women who are trying to make women constantly afraid of men. I have read posts where women claim that they are scared to go to college because of the men there. As the article at the top pointed out, this is having the desired effect. Not for the Puritan-left, but for the religious-right. For so long, they have been trying to get rid of the effects of sexual liberation. Now, thanks to the Twitter and Tumblrites, people like Rebecca Watson and her ilk have done the heavy lifting for them. They should be proud. After all, with this Puritan dogmatism, they have gotten what they want. Women see men as the enemy and will do whatever they want in order to punish men for whatever the Puritan Feminists say is wrong, based on a crisis that they manufactured wholesale by using real victims as props.
Oh, and these people aren’t loyal to the lackeys that they convince. Remember that girl who was carrying around her mattress around until the guy who raped her was punished? Well, when her and her followers got fined, she walked and left them to deal with it. Real class act there. To them, it’s all just stepping stones. To what, you may ask? Well, to men being in the Puritan Feminist Inquisition, where they can be accused of rape, because they didn’t ask a girl for permission at every single step of the process from kissing to getting their freak on. Yes, it’s a bold new world. The Religious-right should be in awe. I kind of am. In less than 5 years, these people have decided to roll back all the work that women who actually cared about other women worked so hard to do. It amazes me.
What it all boils down to is this – these people are manipulative con-artists who are using real victims as props for their own agenda. Or, in the case of Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkeesian, they will exploit whatever controversy they can find in order to sell their line. Like how Brianna Wu used the death of a woman not remotely connected to GamerGame to sell how in danger she was. A bunch of winners in that lot.
