Empathy apartheid – Deflections and dismissals

Empathy apartheid takes maintenance. If it isn’t maintained and policed, people’s basic humanity will lead them to show empathy for the people their society has deemed undeserving of it and the system will collapse. So these same people, sadly, use various deflections and dismissals—silencing mechanisms and minimizing tactics to maintain the system.

Feminist gay-bashing

Have you noticed how much hatred feminists direct at MGTOW guys? Is it just because they can’t be bothered to distinguish between PUAs, MRAs, and MGTOW, or is there more to it? I think there is. I think if we look at feminism’s record on gay men, the Ultimate MGTOW, we can see what’s really […]

On women’s natural insight: A misogynist trope

In a prior Genderratic post– Male privilege:Why do women assume they know about men or men’s lives?–we discussed the cultural trope that women understand men better than men understand women, that women know men’s lives, sometimes better than men do, and can comment knowledgeably on them in a way that men cannot comment on women’s lives.

Symantec steps on their wing-wang at last

Well, lookee here. Remember when Symantec—that Internet Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, that over-reaching, intrusive, “who will think of the children!!” Moral Guardian of the Universe—decided either on their own or at the prompting of radfem elements to block access to MRA and other gender blogs as porn sites? Here’s […]

LADIES’ AUXILIARY OF THE PATRIARCHY – Patriarchal feminism

Please discuss, with examples and analysis John Markley on 2014-08-21 at 9:59 pm said: Edit “The average feminist’s entire construct of the concept of “men” is built of a foundation of the very gender stereotypes which they claim to be fighting.” Patriarchal feminism indeed.

DISCUSSION – Gendering Class, Part IV – “Ladylike” and policing femininity

It’s been a while since we have look at the gendering of class. Something that occurred to me recently was how in many stories women had of being gender-policed as girls that policing was framed in terms of “ladylike” behavior. Were you prevented form climbing trees or wearing certain types clothing of clothing because they weren’t […]
