This sub chapter is called "Radical Man"
Since the mind-bending days of the late 60's, the equal rights movement has struggled to
come of age. But it has been a journey beset with complications. Since wom"logic" is
mercurial at best, it was hardly unexpected when the original coalition of like-minded
thinkers splintered off into rival factions, each devoted to their own polemical agendas.
One such sisterhood is the radical feminists, a peculiar and vicious cult of man-haters
who prey on lesbians, the psychologically crippled, and unsuspecting college co-eds as
recruits for their fanatical crusade. In archetypically cultish fashion they insist on a
polarized philosophy: if you're not for us, you're against us. This is the worst kind of
A truly paranoid cabal, they are alienated from any appeal to reason, convinced that some
ill-defined "patriarchy" is conspiring to oppress the female gender, and is solely
responsible for all the horrors ever conceived by the human race, from rape to war to
having sex with men. They have tried and convicted male society in the kangaroo court
of their sadly freakish dogma and have pronounced the entire gender to be scum: in fact,
a man's only hope for salvation is to have his testicles shrivel up into ovaries. "Male", it
seems, is a particularly nasty four-letter word.
Radical feminists indulge themselves in half-truths, skewed statistics, and outright lies.
Hopelessly chauvinistic, they refuse to tolerate any criticism or intellectual scrutiny of
their claims. As with all women, they have quarantined themselves against reality with
seasoned self-deceit. A typically egregious example of their data manipulation is an oftcited
"fact" in feminist literature which mourns that each year at least 150 thousand
women die from symptoms related to anorexia and bulimia (since, wouldn't you know it,
it is men who pressure these poor victims to be thin). The actual number, according to
government statistics, is about 100 (not thousand-just 100). But such alarmist teachings
will be a booby-trap for uncritical minds. The radical feminists are far too narrow-minded
to get it through their heads that women contract neurotic disease because they are
uninhibitedly obsessed with themselves and their appearance; because they are trying to
mimic the willowy models glamorized in check-out counter magazines (published by and
intended for females); and because they are aspiring to such an unrealistic ideal because
they have been brainwashed (by women) that such an appearance is beautiful, and will
therefore attract a wealthy man.
They divide the world into black and white, them and us. Their doctrine sanctifies the
female as the moralizing and ennobling force of the universe, angelic victims of male
treachery and perversion. In contrast, all men are potential abusers, killers, child
molesters, and rapists, a hand's reach from the violation of their precious female bodies
(someone might want to inform them that men don't have sexual thoughts about women
with butch haircuts and figures like packing crates). Men are despots who plot to control
women's bodies by denying them birth control and rights to abortion; they are
domineering opportunists lusting to procure women as sexual playtoys. Marriage is
another trap of the "patriarchy", enslaving women to drudge as housewives "for free"
(they conveniently ignore the actuality that if a housewife were to be paid a fair wage for
labor, out of which was deducted her share of the mortgage, utilities, various insurances,
repairs, car payments, food, clothing, and entertainment, she would have to get a second
job just to pay her husband what she owed). Make-up, presumably another male fiat,
degrades and victimizes women; and men invented high heels to hobble women from
fleeing from sexual advances.
It should be obvious to any rational thinker that such hysterical nonsense is the fruit of a
very perverse solipsism, the equivalent of a lunatic ranting at his own reflection in a
mirror. But it's pernicious nonsense all the same. Like all women, the radical feminists
are masters of self-delusion, and so they have hyperbolized a world of sweeping
generalizations unencumbered by facts. To pronounce that all men are potential rapists is
like saying that all boys can grow up to be President-the possibility may exist, but the
odds are exceptionally low, and depend on many specific sets of circumstances. But by
depersonalizing men into rapists and the "oppressive patriarchy", the feminist bigots can
assuage any sense of guilt when they despise the masculine gender. These women
desperately want to ennoble themselves as martyred revolutionaries, but the truth is that
they are nothing but angry and bitter broads who can't get a date.
If men are "pigs", then these deluded evangelists are sexist sows. If one of them were
suddenly transfigured into a beauty queen, she'd be thrusting her cleavage at men instead
of screaming at them from behind a protest sign. They are too self-indulgent to be proper
whores-it's far less trouble to scorn men than to go on a diet.
Radical feminists are responsible for the majority of negative aspects of the equal rights
movement,, including "sexual harassment" and "date rape", which open a Pandora's box
for false charges and flagrant abuse of men's rights. They warp logic by trying to deny
that hormones define and control female behavior, that emotionalism is biologically
determined. They insist that human beings are born sexually neutral, clean slates on
which society etches prescriptions of gender-specific behavior patterns. Unfortunately for
their unstable theories, science has proven beyond doubt that the male and female brain
differ not only in size (the male brain is bigger), but in functional activity. In many
respects, behavior is hard-wired into the neural structure. What's more, these women
argue for test-tube conception, so that marriage and mating would become redundant.
They promote androgyny in the schools and workplace and attack traditional sex roles.
Their notion of "equality" is really sexist fascism: women should have absolutely no
contact with men. And they are oddly obsessed with feminizing the vocabulary (women
instead of women, ovular instead of seminar), as if a new language can somehow validate
their credo or invent novel ideas. These are women with immense chips on their
shoulders, raging because their bodies are too unattractive to be able to control men.
Radical feminism is a failure because it is a segregationist movement, interested only in
promoting its own poisonous agenda, not in assisting beneficial cultural change. Like a
billboard with meaningless jumbles scrawled across it, the radical feminist message may
evoke curious attention, but in the end signifies nothing.
