Link: The liberal case against identity politics

You wanted it, you got it, toots.

https://www.vox.com/2017/8/15/16089286/identity-politics-liberalism-republicans-democrats-trump-clinton

They’re right in that it’s good for the right and bad for the left, since the left is all about diversity and identity unifies and homogenizes. Nature is conservative and red in tooth and claw.

They cannot think their own policies through to its logical consequences and the unintended ones are farcical.

We’re the same!

Wait, no! We’re different!

We’re somewhat the same but totally equal!

Then there’s all the inequalities!

Hail Science! Unless it’s fake!

Praise the Faith of Liberal Creationism!

It’s totally 100% completely genetic!

Unless there’s engineering tech in the works!

We need immigrants!

We hate robots!

We’re futurists!

We love tests! 

Academia is racist!

The Lord made our enemies ridiculous.

Claudia Boleyn video: “What is it like being a feminist online?”

I get forwarded these by people when she passingly mentions me. Those people are sadists because yes, I find her annoying but she’s a useful study in SJW. This time is quite momentous, don’t blame me for the post frequency it’s right of reply. She’s the more eloquent type of ditz than regular SJWs.

This is mostly direct quotes and you’ll soon see why. You can double check the video itself if you’re a masochist.

…I get misquoted a lot, I get a lot of people, …I get people sending me quotes, apparently quotes that I’ve said, which have never left my mouth or left my fingertips on my keyboard of my laptop ever in my life. Often asking me to explain my opinions on topics that I have no idea what these topics even are, I’ve never heard of these topics before, using words I don’t know the meanings of. So that’s really frustrating.

mean girls regina george that's really interesting sarcasm
Isn’t there a feminist meme? Educate yourself?

There’s a lot of misinformation floating around. …I mean I get enough shit for the things I do actually say so I don’t need the added help. …Sometimes it can be quite amusing.

That’s trolling. If you put out inflammatory content to get a negative reaction. Trolling.

…It can be amusing to see quite how many of these strange little people you are pissing off with your words and that gives me great strength to know that there are people out there that are so obsessed with me

obsessed with me mean girls regina george
~sigh~

that they’re on all my videos threatening to do these things to me. I’m clearly a big part of these people’s lives now, which is strange.

Most feminists limit themselves to the character limit of Twitter, this one is an odd specimen. The format change incurs a difference in response.

…That does make me laugh, so if you’re watching this video to those particular trolls… I hope that one day you manage to break yourself from the cycle of watching my videos if you hate me so much and you are able to resist the urge to send me misogynistic slurs and hate speech.

Your sub count would drop like a rock.

Personally, I find her videos comical. I pour myself a stiff drink. She’s confusing the people who actually threaten her (such as the rape thing, which is inexcusable) with every passive viewer (no direct contact) who disagrees.

…People compliment my eyebrows a lot.

Those people are not your friends. This mean girl behaviour is exactly what they are doing because it reduces your attractiveness as competition (or they have awful taste);

I was going to say something before because it’s so bad but it would’ve sounded mean, now you mentioned: Brow powder and gel to set is your friend, be subtle, it shouldn’t look like you drew them on with marker. While we’re at it, texturizing hair mousse combed through, stop applying blush on your cheekbones (not apples) and spring for highlighter liquid and contour powder and you need a sheer foundation applied by damp sponge because that one is too heavy. Lipstick choice is acceptable if too pink for your rose-toned skin but clearly applied from the bullet, buy a brush for shaping and layering. This is how you can tell I’m female although at one point she insinuates everyone in disagreement is “anti-feminist male.”

…I get asked for a lot of advice by people and this is really strange for me and it’s quite difficult for me because I really want to be able to help people and advise them but I’m no authority on anything… I’m really not the sort of person that people should look up to really, I don’t think, anyway, because I’ve mucked up so many times in my past…

That one single point is the entire reason, the ENTIRE purpose, of writing my initial post on you. To protect other people, vulnerable people and children/teens who might follow it without question. Since then it’s just been replying.

And I’ve had people saying that I’m pretending to be queer online,

Pretending? No. You aren’t straight. You’re definitely something else, I was quibbling over definitions of which terms were appropriate and citing Berkeley. I love how you were heteronormatively biased in assuming I’m normal myself. Identity politics leaves a bad taste, I take things on merit.
Misrepresenting yourself on a variety of different mediums, with proof written by you? Yeah. People are starting to notice when you say contradictory things. We are capable of critical thinking.

I’m pretending to be bisexual, that I’m pretending to be, um, pretending to be half-Indian.

I never said the Indian thing. Must be somebody else. It’s obvious she’s telling the truth there.

… And some of them can get quite obsessive which is quite worrying, because you know, like I said before about people that comment on my videos, these people actually go back through my videos I’ve made in the past when I was younger and stuff

You have a channel. The medium is intended for that specific purpose. Why do you make them and keep them up if they have an expiration date? At least you haven’t ragequit though.

and hunt me down online, like hunt down my various profiles online and try to get stuff on me which is really scary and I think it’s harassment really, it’s like online stalking and I think that’s very disgusting,

Wait, wait, hold up. You put the information up there. You wrote it. You put it there. Stalking involves invasion of privacy. There is no such thing as stalking information a person has chosen to share publicly to garner attention and public discussion on, it’s right to publicity we are helping you exercise, that ‘evil’ action would be called reading/watching. Reading self-uploaded content online isn’t stalking. Harassment? How? Where do you get this stuff? If you quit mentioning me, I’d quit replying to you. Happily. I’m kinda bored of you by now. I refuse to review anything to do with the mess of modern Who.

so I’m very wary of that and I’ve actually had the police involved.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.
Is she trying to get on TV, is that it?
Does she know wasting police time is a crime?

I’m not gonna talk about that too much here

because it would make you look bad, can’t have that
they dropped it too, didn’t they
that’s also why
why did they?
hmmm?

but I have had the police involved with something like that before so yeah, I’m not afraid to report that kind of thing by the way.

she is very trigger happy with power, huh? Has anything actually happened IRL? Doubtful. Online stuff you block or avoid. It’s simple. And what about counter-suits? Have you considered that? Is your casefile that strong, to drag anonymous people (with a stronger right to privacy as non-Youtubers) out and withstand a libel suit for twisting their words or actions? Malicious prosecution suits? Again, I doubt it. Maybe try studying law, a topic you don’t understand, before running off to the police because someone disagreed with you beyond a ‘safe space’ echo chamber. There is no right to be exempt from disagreement, intellectual debate or offense. You cannot censor all criticism of your ideas which are not positive and completely yielding.
As I put it in another post: If you wish to discuss controversial subjects, you will attract controversy.

Just in case you are one of those stalker kind of people, you know, I will just go straight to the police so you know.

Sounds like a threat.
And accusing people of crimes they haven’t committed is slander. As I keep repeating, you are not qualified to decide certain things. Whether a person is a criminal is a judge’s job.
Would you go to the papers about it too? Cash in on an interview? That would be the ultimate test of whether you suffered any ill feeling. You see, if a person is truly stalked (I have been, I speak from experience), the last thing they would do is draw attention to themselves (police guidelines too) and give interviews about it (attentionseeking).

……Misandry’s like a joke that feminists have picked up on just to frighten MRAs and men that are particularly oppressive and full of bullshit.

It isn’t just white men, it’s all men, and it stretches back over a century.
You should know this. That is the history of the movement you support.

..They don’t seem to have the imagination to see outside of that so when they hear about feminism they don’t bother to listen to what we’re saying about society.

Maybe we like data and logic? > emotion, imagination

…They’re not actually misandrists, they just say it to scare those particular men and it is quite amusing. Also women don’t actually have the power for their hate to do damage.

This explains so much about how you operate.

(example of how there is no such thing as racism against white people)

Diverse of you. Inclusive. Tolerant.

Obviously I don’t hate men. If I did hate men, I don’t think it would be that much of a big deal really, to be honest …. I see a lot of male feminists, allies, I don’t know if they should be called feminists or not, that’s a debate…

There’s nothing else of value except for her elevator pitch to become a feminist like her.
The lack of agreement between women should actually be a good thing.

Why is Gamergate succeeding in taking down the pretentious SJWs where others have failed?

Serious question.

The longer you contemplate, the stranger it appears.

I had a brainwave about it. It was a productive brainwave.

What defines the Social Justice Warrior Princesses and their downtrodden White Knights?

Narcissism. A psychological void which arguably makes its holder inferior to the healthy. They are full of angst (perpetual self-hatred machines), they rage against imagined foes (paranoia directed outward) and their inability to deal with the world as it is makes them a force for Thanatos, the destructive impulse. They do not build themselves up, Libidinal, because they cannot. They are chronic children, incapable of adult recovery from the shocks and obstacles of life. They flake and flip-flop because they have no true core self. They seek to make the world angry and make the world feel the pain they are constantly barraged with. The actions – of a troll.

These sorry creatures cannot get anywhere materially unless by permission. Political campaigning and niche activisms seek said permission from those with power, to give it away. For the feels.

What defines the serious, hardcore gamer of internet lore?

...Narcissism. They need to be someone else, someone fictional, to feel like a complete person, because there is a void. The troll section really made it click and they work for the lolz. Their enemies are RPG figments instead of a conservative on Twitter. However, unlike the SJWs, gamers have more than no life filled with rallies and talks and other ‘social justice’ engagements. They have a fictional life. Its goal is simple: WIN, at all costs. They will not stop. They are the Terminators of the internet. This is why no one can beat 4chan.

In short, the feminists are losing because they have taken on their own counterpart, another component of the narcissistic demographic (including many of their fellow Millennials). It wasn’t any specific technique of Gamergate which conferred victory, although I’m sure those helped, it was fighting a campfire with dragonfire.

Parody video up top was referencing this hypocritical BS, if you want to avoid giving Anita any more attention;

Feminist Claudia Boleyn’s 10 common misconceptions about feminism DEBUNKED

This came up when I was re-watching AVFM videos. Specifically this one about feminist shaming tactics, by a real woman.

“There’s no way they could’ve seen the video or read the post” (before disapproving of her or questioning her)
I get the feeling this is gonna be fun.

“I think it’s important to listen to what feminists have to say on feminism.” Deal. If you think it’s important to treat non-feminists as human beings capable of an equally free and justifiable opinion that happens to differ from yours.

She yaps on for ages about her personal blogs. Just plug them and get it over with.

“There are so many comments that think they’re arguing with me but they’re literally agreeing with me in different words.” ~ Claudia Boleyn

“We’re really not a hate group.” Except patriarchy. Already this is worthwhile.

1. Feminists are fat, hairy lesbians?

Stereotype. Without any studies on feminists, we cannot know either way. I would read such studies.
“Some of us are fat, some of us are hairy, some of us are lesbians.” So you’re saying it’s true. A stereotype needn’t apply to the entire group. Then she says she’s queer but not a lesbian.

2. Feminists hate men

Answer this: which sex is patriarchy? Which race? Which class?
“Feminists don’t hate men, feminists hate partriarchy.” So you are a hate group.
She speaks about it like a faceless entity. No, every group is comprised of people. Who are these people you hate?
“Upheld by men over women.” So you do actually hate men. Women cannot be patriarchy, so by hating it you can only hate men, the people behind the label.
She goes on about a “dangerous way of thinking” about traditional gender roles, those are based on women carrying the babies of the species. I will omit her little whines for clarity where they’re not funny.
“Feminists don’t hate men because they are men HOWEVER, feminists do have a hatred and a dislike for men that-” I’m gonna stop you right there. You don’t get to tell men what to do. Who died and made you Pope.
Misuse of Strawman fallacy.
She goes on to say if a man conforms to the behaviours she personally finds socially desirable, she (and feminists) won’t hate him. Oh! So the lucky few will be exempt from your hatred! How sweet of you! How gracious to spare them!
“The problem is that there are unfortunately a lot of men-” Yeah we get it. -“that don’t” We know. You want male slaves bowing to your whim. We know. “And yeah we have a lot of resentment towards them and that’s fair enough.” Would you castrate these men? Take away their symbolic and literal manhood? Serious question. Should male castration be a feminist punishment?
You say stereotype as if that makes it untrue. Stereotypes become so because they are generally true.
She keeps blaming the media. Granted, the MSM lie, but they can’t lie about everything. If a feminist does something wrong, they will reference it. It’s their role in our culture. That isn’t bad, it’s socially responsible in the public interest.

3. Feminists don’t care about men

You hate them by default because everyone in patriarchy is one and as you said a few minutes ago, you hate that. Hating is worse than not caring. “Liberation for women especially.”

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal ~ A fictional pig.

“Gender roles which are harmful to all people.” Then why do trans people have such terrible mental health? They’re the living experiment of what happens if you choose to ignore your biology. It fucks you up. Hey, who cares about studies, that show women are flocking back to the kitchen by choice? Your activism isn’t a finite resource. You are choosing to spend your time on women and exclude men, instead of making your activism equal in its support. “Although it isn’t about men and I really have to stress, it isn’t about men as a focus, it does help men too.” No evidence.
How do you define weak? A lack of testosterone or other key chemicals in the body? In which case, effeminate men are weak, there are differences in body chemistry. Is it feminine behaviour? That is a choice. Make feminine behaviours acceptable to both men and women and that would disappear. Except feminism tries to masculinize women, so you can’t do that.
The stiff upper lip applies to everyone. Crying at your work meeting about your lover chucking you isn’t acceptable behaviour for anyone. Does she have a bingo chart? Here’s a detour on gay men. “Surely having two men in a relationship makes it more manly.” Except studies prove you wrong. They aren’t in relationships, they’re man whores. Lack of ability to be monogamous isn’t effeminate. She talks about being free with emotions. I once read a great joke on tumblr;

“And be free from these horrible boxes.” What about freedom of choice? What if humans naturally gravitate toward greater wellbeing in those roles? Will you deny them? Does this include all value judgements? Freedom from success and failure altogether, the ultimate duality? Cos that’s Communism in a nutshell. “That’s a benefit to everybody” – who would’ve been a life failure and loser under any other regime.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.” ~ William John Henry Boetcker

4. Feminists think all men are rapists

– and never women. False accusations too? You missed those out, huh? I guess you just forgot. “Anybody of any gender can be a rapist, a woman can [bold mine] rape a man… anyone can be a rapist.” True in reality. Legally, only men because it requires penetration. Where’s the picketing to get that law revised? “The vast amount of rape is done by men” – reported. Reported by the usually female victim, processed in the system and taken seriously. You can’t claim a negative is true because the fact is self-report biased. If you count prison (if criminals are human), more men are raped. Truthburn!
“Feminists believe in the humanity of men.” You think men are human? Congratulations, you qualify as…. normal. Does victim blaming happen to men? Does it? You’re skewing this to be gynocentric. I know you won’t reply to this. It’d expose you as a fraud. Saying a man cannot help himself to sex is misandrist, men have free will. “We believe that men are just as intelligent and rational as women.” Science calls your bluff on that. The structure is undeniably different. Don’t think we didn’t notice the way you made it sound as if men were catching up to women, instead of the reality, vice versa. “Men should be held accountable for their actions the same as everyone else.” The same as women, you mean? Except women aren’t. Women have an easier time in the criminal justice system, laxer sentencing. Actually, most of the feminist rhetoric I have seen portrays men as default rapists (teach men not to rape) with no self-control, so they’re completely sexist, yes, I agree.

5. Feminists don’t have a sense of humour

“We just don’t particularly like jokes that make fun of (pause) oppressed groups and that bully them.” So it’s true. You seem to say a lot of things you believe in cognitive dissonance, without realizing that to an observer, you come across in a totally different, contradictory and ignorant way.
Do you make ‘jokes’ about MRAs? PUAs? Cis people? Straight people? White people? In multiple videos? That last: “They all kinda look like their souls have been sucked from them, two of the young women look dead because of poor editing… they appear sort of ethereal and grey [that’s racist] …. that’s the only reason you can have less charisma than the people in this video [bullying, not addressing their points ad hominem] … there isn’t a problem with Islam” [you’re a feminist, they’d have a problem with you] Multiple uses of “fantasy world.” You are not one to judge. “I cannot think of a single instance of racism against white people. … It’s like a weird victim complex going on.” Projection. “They don’t stand for anything really [contradicting self in X uses of racism card] I don’t actually think there’d be anything wrong with a world where there was a majority of people of colour” That’s genocide (UN), the definition includes race replacement and destruction of native culture (see: Native America). So officially, feminist Claudia Boleyn is in favour of genocide as long as it is of white people. On the video, she added a text bubble editing her own spoken, recorded words *a country in which. “It’s so poor it’s hilarious.” Classist. Need I add the term POC is offensive to white people? As if white people have no colour and aren’t people.

Explain why those aren’t bullying…? Again, who died and made you Pope? And hilariously, please do a video on your view of the European election results! Please do. For real. And another on neo-nazi hipsters. It’d be so funny. You’re like a village idiot: “I hate on people because hating on people is evil!” ~ subtext
“Satire points out how ludicrous the system is.” Yes. There are no limits on which system.
“There are a lot of feminist comedians.” And none of them are funny to normal non-feminist people (it’s a choice, not a default setting). Are you one of them? Please tell me all your stuff is a cerebral parody of social justice warrior princess.

all no none joke humour funny

6. Feminists have penis envy.

You do hate men (#2). Men are defined by humans that possess a penis and testes. If p | q.

You change the question. I noticed. Just because self-hating men called themselves feminist (see #2) doesn’t mean other non-penis feminists don’t hate men. You actually said words to that effect, the exemption. Only people without a penis can have penis envy, so changing the question to owners proves it correct. Womb envy is also a feminist theory, sure, miss it out. Sure, I guess you forgot. If womb envy occurs in Feminist Land, so must penis envy because p | q.
Rights are NOT positive claims.
#killallmen

7. Feminists want a matriarchy.

Do you want feminists in charge globally or not? If yes, that is a matriarchy and you want it.
“It would be a step up.” “We want…. there really isn’t anything wrong with that.” You want to take down a global system, which is anarchic, and you think there’s nothing wrong with it? There are no downsides to regime change or mass societal upheaval? No wars? No deaths? No rapes?

Many soldiers turned their guns against their commanding officers rather… than fight against the enemy. The retreat degenerated into chaos as soldiers looted shops and stores, raped peasant girls and murdered Jews. The collapse of the offensive dealt a fatal blow to the Provisional Government and the personal authority of its leaders. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers were killed.source

“I have to admit, it would be quite fun.”

8. Feminists are a hivemind

How else can you speak for all of them? “When they make a generalization-” Like everything you say? “However we do all share the view-” Then you are. You have the same view. Entirely. “We are sort of a collective, in that sense.” The dissonance is strong in this one.

9. Feminists are like the Nazis.

You are a fascist group. You want complete power with no one else allowed a say. You want an upheaval of all society to conform to your views. You want to police language. You want to leave no cultures alone to mind their own business (or businesses) and rip away natural laws with government totalitarian power. Fascism can be left-wing e.g. Stalin. Nazi stands for National Socialism. Socialism is left wing. The socialist tendencies of the Nazis are the ones being referenced e.g. the suppression of dissenting opinion.

“The Nazis oppressed and hurt a lot of people from this group. They killed people from my community.” Factually inaccurate. People in ‘your community’ aren’t old enough, they wouldn’t be talking about it and they wouldn’t be in your community now if they are, in fact, killed [your grammar]. You are not related to them in the slightest. The genetic line is gone, because that’s what murder is. You’ve never even seen a real Nazi and you’re daydreaming about what they’d do to you. The real Nazis wouldn’t have hated you, they had brothels for queer women. You could’ve got paid. To quote this fantastic takedown response video and this illogical gleeful post of yours on tumblr:  “They’d have passed you around like an ashtray.”
“The Nazis were quite patriarchal.” I must’ve misunderstood that sentence because it sounded as if you were saying present society, being patriarchal, is in fact Nazi. …Then why are you here?

10. Feminists are currently plotting to overthrow national governments and instead create a matriarchy (blah blah)…

She uses sarcasm to avoid answering: “That’s not a misconception, that’s totally true. Yeah you got me there.”
See #7. You want that. You admitted it seriously earlier. Question: do you want to destroy the concept of nation states? The communist belief that national divisions and loyal, patriotic unity of an indigenous peoples within a nation is damaging? Seriously, do you want multi-nationalism or nation state erasure to go with your multi-culturalism? Would you like to see us all living under the yoke of the Empire of the Glorious European Union?
“I hope I’ve given you the strength to go out and crush the patriarchy.” Is your father part of it? Grandfather? Great? Great-great?
I would say boyfriend but…. well. Or are you an asexual too, to add to your special trait list? Fish, meet bicycle.
“Loads of love.” I can feel it.

Are personal pronoun pansies control freaks?

The use of the pronoun he to refer to men and women dates back to the 18th century. The Generic He is easier to pronounce and uses less ink.

They already have an alternative: it.

If you tell me you’re neither m/f, I am linguistically accurate in referring to you as an it. You are giving me no other correct option by omitting yourself from the chromosomal (read: real) categories. Even those intersex (“true hermaphrodites“) you love to bring up still fit in the binary, they happen to be both. 1+1 =/= 3

http://www.let.leidenuniv.nl/hsl_shl/Adamson.htm

Languages need no more than three terms: masculine, feminine and neuter or neutral, the Other. These are psychological terms and there can be no logical objection to them. Plenty of European languages (those I’m familiar with) have a specific assignment per word e.g. mela is Italian for apple and it is classed as feminine, hence la mela or the apple. Introducing anything beyond the miscellaneous category of neuter is asking for a squared expansion on already densely packed (here, Romance) languages.

You have enough useless liberal arts graduates in your ranks to calculate the basic impossibility of including your personal pronouns on a linguistic level. They are called personal because you have no right to control the speech of another person. They can tell you that birth sex announced by a doctor is The Sex of a mammal for its entire lifespan (as a scientist or sane, honest person would) or they can respond to your passive-aggressive ‘request’ by telling you to accept their personal pronouns (those they use, because language is for dialogue) or fuck off because you’re incapable of healthy speech with another human being.

While you’re at it, Americans especially, quit appropriating the English language for your subculture.
Normal people do not appreciate grammatically incorrect power-tripping.
You’re not oppressed, you’re unpopular. Grammar-Nazi language policing won’t help that.

Get over yourself and learn something or GTFO loser
