Link: What’s the problem with feminism?

Should say SJWism. Different beasts. One postmodern and actively irrational.

There is one classic distraction tactic: you have X, you should be happy. Don’t bother for Y or Z.

Well, fuck you, that isn’t how humans work. Rape is a bigger problem in Europe now than before, so his statistics are craptacular. It’s about protecting the vulnerable, including children.

Equality of opportunity = literally meritocracy. Everyone is behind that. Everyone.
Feminists used to be people you could respect, they just wanted the same respect for the same work.

Equality of whatever they feel like today that’s nice? BS.

Social justice is one gigantic distraction from class.

Whatever they do, they fuck the poor.

They fuck them over by buying foreign products and inviting policies that keep the lower orders down, beneath them.

They’re preserving their privilege. There is no privilege but class privilege.
The middle-class are claiming to speak for the bulk of society and openly reviling those opinions.

Quick Wisdom, Apply Philosophy: On — Privilege

Apply Kant: If everyone has a privilege, no one does.
Apply Ancient Greece: It comes down to an old philosophical question, is it better to be born (value life in principle) or is life a chaotic valueless entity (nbd).
Apply Popper: In the end, we’re all privileged to be alive, viewed from our own perspective. Beyond is unfalsifiable and alters the question to Knowledge Theory.
Apply Aurelius: It shan’t last. You shall die.
Apply Camus: Nothing else beats it. Life is a gift blah blah inspirational rallying cry over a much-needed morning coffee.
