In case you haven’t watch the news (I don’t blame you) there was a shooting in california a few days ago by some rich kid (automatically assuming it’s a guy? Because only guys are evil right?) anyway, it was some guy, early 20s who shot up some people then killed himself. What is notable about this, is the feminist bent the whole thing has taken.
By his own admission in videos he had girl trouble and that girls should have liked him. To be blunt, he was kind of a freak, and the media piles on him for this, but this is where I diverge strongly. There was a multitude of psychologists (all girls, like some sort of shaman/priestess class – they alone can read the stones!) talking about this guy, and I shit you not, this was an exact quote ‘if he had a girl friend this never would have happened’ other quotes along the lines of ‘girls present a modulating influence on young males’ etc.
The blatant-ness of these comments struck me hard in my post-pill awareness. Essentially what they are saying, is that guys – all guys- are one step away from murder rampages, BECAUSE they can’t get a girl, because only girls can ‘calm them down’.
It’s an interesting chicken/egg syndrome, because if the guy is a loser, like him, how exactly are you supposed to achieve the holy grail of a girl friend? It’s an implicit assumption that does not hold up to scrutiny in the slightest. That EVERY guy out there needs a girl to control him (and that every girl would pair with every guy instead of the best getting the lions share) to ‘modulate’ his behavior.
Do you see what this has subtly done? It has shifted the burden of control to women, that men can’t really control themselves, they are just beasts at heart, it takes an independent woman to control that man. Of course with control comes responsibility, but they expertly dodge that, doing some strange circular reasoning that it was his fault; girls can control you but when you snap its not their fault.
Its pretty disturbing, because quite obviously men are violent, but the narrative we are sold is that it is uncontrollable, that women truly are the ‘modulating’ influence on society that without them it would devolve into Road Warrior rampages. It passes off the subtle (and sometimes blatant) truth that women are inherently superior because they control the weaker member of the sexes from dragging the rest of society down. Forgetting men built it in the first place.
Edit: Just tonight (5-27) on ‘world news’ they covered this story, which included the following (paraphrased, I can’t find the link yet) ‘he was part of a small group on the internet that is cycnical and hate filled about women, so called ‘pick up artists’ ‘
It goes on to bash PUAs as, ironically, the belief that ‘being a nice guy entitles you to women’. The errors in this are pretty profound, namely, that ANY pua would espouse being a ‘nice guy’ as a way to get women, namely the exact opposite. But it doesnt really matter, all it really shows it that media will distory everything to fit their narrow narrative.
Such as this extremly stupid ‘yes all women’ twitter trend with such gems such as “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them” or “I shouldn’t have to hold my car keys in hand like a weapon & check over my shoulder every few seconds when I walk at night” (right, because that would be the smart thing to do, nothing to do with ‘misogny’) or “Because I shouldn’t have had to send my daughters to college with pepper spray and a rape whistle” (after all, 1/3 girls are ‘raped’ in college)
Whats sad, is the nightly news segement ended with some girl saying ‘everyone I know has been a victim of unwanted sexual abuse or advances, including myself’ then cut to some ugly fat 40 year old claiming the same thing. Its the same tired narrative of ‘men = evil’ and ‘women = can do no wrong’
Edit: I found the link to the audio of abc world news, here it is http://castroller.com/podcasts/AbcWorldNews2/4081194?start=0 skip to 6:00, where we hear about that “a hidden subculture of resentment, cynicism and anger against women where one disturbed man took refgue”, the irony of course is pua/mgtow preaches SNAP THE FUCK OUT OF IT! If you want women, improve your life! Then we hear that ‘every women i know has experianced some form of sexual harassment’ then some ugly bitch ‘every singl women i know has a story about a man who feels entitled to access to her body’
