2015 saw many fails for Feminists. This is my list of my favorite top 10 of their fails (some carried over from 2014), and in my opinion, why feminism is fighting a loosing battle.
10. #Manspreading Campaign
This campaign was was designed to “shame” (Hypocrites) men into closing their legs to give room to women who want to sit down on public transportation in NYC. This short lived campaign was started by some over privileged white college student women, who had nothing better to do, than harass men on the subway.
The campaign garnered notoriety and was in the papers. The people who ran the subway system decided to make this a courtesy rule and put up signs in their subway trains. This resulted in the arrest of 2 men after midnight who were on an almost empty train but because their legs were spread got arrested. The cases of course were thrown out of court by a sensible judge, and after that the campaign to attack men for “spreading” their legs to far, was done.
9. Potty Mouth Princess Campaign
Nothing says equality than using little girls to push a political agenda by swearing at their elders, specifically male elders. The FCKH8 campaign was short lived and garnered huge amounts of criticism from everyone, including some prominent feminists. This of course didn’t stop the makers of the campaign, because in their eyes, any publicity is good publicity, so they stepped it up a notch to fight domestic abuse …
Of course when a child is beaten black and blue like the princess above, we call this child abuse, and putting them on posters is called exploitation, but hey, it’s okay because it’s feminism and for a cause. Huge fail.
#8. Anita and that other chick whining to the UN.
Anita whatsherdonkeyface, and the other one decided to go to the UN to fight against online cyber bullying. After they presented their speech, they actually made feminism look even worse and helped turn the tide of women going against feminism.
Their best argument for censorship on the internet was people having a different opinion than theirs, not being allowed to block or report people who have a different opinion than theirs and best of all, anyone who isn’t a feminist to be censored.
The concept of this campaign was to again “shame” people for using the word bossy when it comes to women. Some people are bossy but according to feminists, women are not bossy, just expressing themselves. Cause you know… feminist can’t ever be bossy.
#6 Free The Nipple!
According to feminists, this is a big button issue that needed to be addressed. They wanted to be able to post photos online of their bare breasts but also be able to walk around in public bare chested.
This was one of my favorites because I know a bunch of feminists in my area who thought this was great and supported it. And I pointed out that they can legally go out bare chested, that nothing was stopping them from doing so in Ontario. They’re response was to of course blame men for their insecurities of walking around bare chested. I asked why, they would respond in the typical manner that “I don’t want to be stared at” or “I don’t want to be sexualized”. (Usually from the hideous women who drink Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream for breakfast)… And I pointed out that if they (women), walked around bare chested more often then it would be common place and no one would blink twice at it. And ,… this is when their argument falls flat . Fail.
A scientist successfully landed a rover remotely on a moving comet for the first time in human history. That should have been celebrated by everyone, but feminists with less than half a brain attacked the man due to the fact he was wearing a shirt that they found offensive, due to the fact there was scantily clad on the shirt. It didn’t matter that the shirt was made by a woman friend of the scientist who created the shirt for him as a present and is a feminist herself. Nope. They again pulled out the “shame” tactic and had the poor man in tears on national television apologizing for the shirt, tarnishing his great achievement.
#4. Rape Culture
A movie that came out a few years back called “rape culture” caught the attention of feminists who jumped on the idea that we live in a society that actively promotes rape and protects rape.
This idea however, fails completely when looked at logically and by the stats and as well, as by looking at reality.
Western society doesn’t promote rape, it demonizes it. So much that even the flimsiest accusation can ruin a man’s life.
In fact in western society, we have less than a percent of a percent of rape crime in our society. Men are given long sentences if convicted of rape.
That brings me to …
This one is still going on even though the media controversy started in 2014. Apparently Cosby should be tried for rape on hazy recollections and no proof from almost 40 years ago.
According to feminists, it doesn’t matter, the victim should be treated as if she is telling the truth, regardless of lack of evidence or facts. Ignore the fact the women admitted to drinking and doing hard drugs at the time of their alleged rapes with Cosby.
According to the feminists, a rape victim shouldn’t have to prove the guy raped them, the guy should be proving his innocence.
In other words, let’s take all responsibility off the plaintiff and put it all on the defense.
Thankfully as of last month Cosby has decided to sue the women for defamation of character. Good Luck Mr. Cosby.
#2 Air Conditioners are Sexist!
According to this so called “journalist” for the Guardian Newspaper in the UK, air conditioners are sexist against women. Due to a study that showed that women feel cold more keenly than men. So when the office air conditioner is on, it should be, according to her, turned down to a comfort level for the women in the office and let the men sweat.
This whole thing went world wide and people laughed and thought this was a joke until they realized it was a serious topic and so many people took this as another notch in how feminists make themselves look utterly idiotic.
Yes this is still happening and has been talked about, almost nonstop all year in the gaming community. Feminists constantly and consistently make themselves look like complete morons with this.
In case you don’t know what this is about…
It started as the people in the gaming community, complained on how there was no neutrality in the journalism when it came to games. And they were right. A gamer will get a constant barrage of reviews that praise this game or that game and nary a negative review happens. This is due to the fact the game developers pay these people to write positive reviews. This is called a paid endorsement. Many articles in newspapers and magazines are paid endorsements and you don’t even realize it.
This really didn’t get any controversy until Anita Sarkesian and her chummy “I am a feminist” male writer buddies decided to make this a commentary against women. And so a campaign was launched by her and her reviewer friends to discredit the gamers who complained.
This had nothing to do with sexism in gaming or feminism in reality. It was to protect their cash cow. Can’t have their audience criticizing their sources of income after all.
They hid this under a veil of feminism and sexism in gaming by gamers and the developers, in an effort to divert the attention away from themselves. They realized during this campaign that the developers would bow under pressure of the pen so they would attack anything and anyone in gaming, citing sexism. From the lack of female lead characters, to flimsy female outfits, to violence against women in games.
They did convince a small few at the beginning. The HoneyBadgers for instance had been ejected from Com-icon when a feminist complained about the content of the comics being displayed at the com-icon both by HoneyBadgers. (Women by the way).
Then things heated up when they demanded women superhero characters (even though there are thousands in the comic books), and so companies like Disney (who bought marvel) announced they were making Thor female. (The Norse God of Thunder). And wonder woman got a new outfit that covered her more but still made her look feminine.
This enraged some of the geeks and nerds out there who rightfully complained about the buckling under the pressure from the feminists who until this past year, didn’t complain about this before (These characters have been around for over 50 years).
To this day gamergate is still going but has lost much of it’s momentum because the feminists have been making themselves look bad with every new demand.
Anyway, that is my list. If you think there is a feminist fail that should be on the list feel free to comment below.
