Watch out for Reverse Sexism: Tex’s Salute to Anti-feminism

Updated on August 8, 2014
Source

There’s a movement spreading like bras burning all over this nation. Young women who didn’t have to grow up with the Don Drapers of the world are convinced everything is honky dory between the sexes, that women don’t have anything to worry their pretty-little heads over. As a man, I want to salute your wisdom.

Tex knows who butters his bread every morning.

Here’s a patriotic how do you do pretty lady to the women who fight feminism. Feminism is everything these anti-feminist chicks say it is. It is anti-chivalry bitchiness that belittles men.

Feminism is against empowerment because feminism is against women that want to be empowered without feminism. It is abusive to men, and feminism is no longer needed. You see, men and women are equal in all things. Men are just extra equal than girls.

Feminazis want more ladies in the workplace messing things up for us he-men. First, they want more women in Congress. Get real. What else do you want? Next, more of these chicks will want to be doctors, construction workers and sperm donors.

Rape is what comedians call a "comedy killer."

Some ladies got all catty and talked back to the patriotic anti-feminists, saying that it is “an ideology built to assure conservative women that as long as they are doing just fine, other women will make do…” Cathy Young in Time Magazine wrote, “But they also say that modern Western feminism has become a divisive and sometimes hateful force, a movement that dramatically exaggerates female woes while ignoring men’s problems...” Yes, what about us men!

Katy Perry is obviously confused. She had it right the first time when she stated, “I am not feminist, but I do believe in the power of women.” She recently changed her mind and declared she was a feminist because “it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men.” ” Perry turned her back on turning her back on women.

Women got into a cat fight over antifeminism. I can’t decide if that’s feminist or not, but it’s hot! “What do you think feminism IS, ladies? What part of ‘liberation for women’ is not for you? Is it freedom to vote? The right not to be owned by the man you marry? The campaign for equal pay? Did all that good shit GET ON YOUR NERVES? Or were you just DRUNK AT THE TIME OF SURVEY?”

I would like to thank all the drinking ladies out there from the bottom of my soul.

As one liberated anti-feminist explained, “...feminists were all the same. Shouty, elitist and actually a little bit mean. Men haters and blamers, women victimizers and blamers.”

She gets a big pat on her ass for that, right guys?

Feminazism means you have to hate men, and you can’t be loyal to a man. If you are feminist, you can’t be a stay at home mom, and that’s why I hate feminism. Being a feminist and staying at home with family both at the same time hurts my brain. Ouch, quit it! Feminism means you can’t call out men on their sexist and misogynist attitudes and actions because that’s unfair to men. It's reverse sexism.

Here's a long, hearty and groping hug to all these girls for being against feminism. Now be a good girl and get me some coffee, will ya?

Peace,
Tex Shelters

      I sure do.

      I have one daughter and yes i absolutely do. I have taught her she is as good as anyone else and has equal chance to get on in the world as anyone else. That she is no victim and has agency and opportunity to choose what she wants to do or be. That she has to take accountability for her own choices. That her Dad is proud of her and will back her to the hilt. That I will always be there for her.

      So yeah, I think not only defend her rights, but do not try to give her a victim complex. To REALLY empower her. To also allow her to make mistakes and be disappointed with life occasionally.

      I have a son, I offer him the same deal.

      They are great kids and do me proud as a parent.

      I hope the same for your children

      Insults? I was accusing different aspects of what you were saying, to be dishonest. Is that insulting? It should not be. I will tell you why. The way I see it, either you know it was dishonest and meant it to be and it is simply me identifiying your handiwork for what it is, in which case you know, I know, we all know and you should be fine with this.

      OR..You honestly did not know you were writing misrepresentations and lies and dishonesties and needed to have a bit more of the picture to change your opinion and give you more balance to the Feminist Talking point Propaganda. If this is the case, that is OK too. YOu would simply do a "Oh, I did not think of that, I was not meaning to be dishonest, I was simply acting on bad advice". That is no foul. That would not be insulting either.

      As for "Pathetic", What I think is Pathetic, is that Feminists do not allow women to make choices and if women chose jobs which trade off security, reduce risk, less physical wear, proximity to home, best hours and so on, for higher pay and men don't, that Feminist pretend it is some injustice that women on average get paid less that men on average.

      I think it is Pathetic, childish, irresponsible and dishonest.

      So you had a link to show me. Let me see....Oh...Oh dear.

      Tell me Tex? Do you think that if you are discussing Feminist ideology and alluding to men in society getting a better deal and oppressing women and giving systematic gender bias through society (and yes your article was doing this through its inferences and suggestions), then are you going to agree that this is by virtue of the fact, talking about "male privilege and Patriarchy". You may or may not have used those exact phrases but you would have to agree that it is a moot point either way, right? If we are implying it and I identify it by name then saying that you have not used the term, matters what exactly?

      Anti-Feminism is noble. The cracks have appeared in Feminism. I can hardly wait to see it go up in flames like the Roman Empire. It is a poisonous ideology that devalues men and disempowers women. It is a sexist, misandrist ugly little belief system.

      Why all the insults? Is your ego so weak that you can't comment without trying to put me down? That's pathetic.

      There is a gender pay gap:

      http://www.pay-equity.org/

      I ever used the word "patriarchy" in the article, but I am sure you read it into what I wrote. "Females are outmanned nd outgunned and only through whining, ironically, to the system that oppresses them, can they get man's privilege points." So females are whiners and outmanned (read "weak") and outgunned (why guns, why the weapon reference?)

      I was stating that feminism has done some good and that anti-feminism is misguided. I quoted what you wrote and it was clearly patriarchal. You don't see it that way. Fine. I never talked used the phrases "male privilege" or used the word "patriarchy" in my article. Your mind put it there.

      Well, I don't even know where to start.

      It is not an "institution problem" that is just your shorthand of saying that there are not a lot of women in those roles and so therefore it is NOT their choice and they are NOT accountable for their own choices.

      Very empowering for women, I am sure. Victimhood trumps reason.

      "Why are fewer women interested in Congress or certain jobs?".

      People have different reasons for not doing certain jobs and I listed a number of reasons in my previous reply, which you have chosen to ignore. I will not police your choices, though nor, I will reason that you are adult enough to make what choices you want. You should actually extend that respect to women.

      I know EXACTLY what equal pay means and if you truly believe for a minute that for exactly the same job, women are paid less than men you are completely ignorant. Completely.

      The studies have been around for years and have been based NOT on exactly the same job, at all. It was always the average fulltime male earmings vs the average fulltime female earnings. For years it has consistently been between 70-80% and for exactly the reasons I stated. In recently years Feminists have tried to promote this as NOT being the average fulltime male earnings vs the average fulltime female earnings, but had it disproven again and again.

      http://www.consad.com/content/reports/Gender%20Wag...

      It is laughable that they still try to that people like you still trot it out. Consider this, if it were truth that women cost less than men to employ, why would there be ANY expensive men in all these jobs that women are so much cheaper for? Why not just employ the cheaper employee? Why employ women in Human resource roles and Paymaster type roles where it exposes the employer to almost certain class action for wage discrimination?

      "I never said men "owned" women. That came from your mind and interpretation? Why?"

      In answer to that question read this little passage

      "Women got into a cat fight over antifeminism. I can’t decide if that’s feminist or not, but it’s hot! “What do you think feminism IS, ladies? What part of ‘liberation for women’ is not for you? Is it freedom to vote? The right not to be owned by the man you marry? The campaign for equal pay? Did all that good shit GET ON YOUR NERVES? Or were you just DRUNK AT THE TIME OF SURVEY?”"

      Now ask me the same question and tell me again whether it came from my mind or yours and then you tell me "why?"

      Feminism is not about equality and never has been. But you may be able to prove me wrong on this score. Equality, you say? OK, there are PLENTY of areas in Western Society that women have the advantage over men. This is the bit where you tell me and your readers all the areas in the last 60 years that Feminists have sought to address those areas of imbalance. I mean they ARE for equality, right? No? Only equality where women are disadvantaged? (Pssst...that is not equality)

      The facts are....you have your facts wrong. Why?Because you listen to propaganda and treat it as fact.

      Women and men are sexualised. Yup got that. Rape is not a gendered crime? Yup got that. Women have the same rights and obligations and opportunities as men, yup got that.

      Yes, I know you were specifically not saying any of these things because you have your facts wrong.

      "Anti-feminists have no issues with women in the work place. That wasn't the issue."

      Sure, so you did not write this:

      "Feminazis want more ladies in the workplace messing things up for us he-men. First, they want more women in Congress. Get real. What else do you want? Next, more of these chicks will want to be doctors, construction workers and sperm donors."

      OK.

      "Why do you have an issue with female/male equality and protection under the law?"

      "You see, men and women are equal in all things. Men are just extra equal than girls"

      OK, here is where you tell me all the rights that men have that women don't. It better be really something. If you don't then I want you to explain both the above statements, and well.

      ""Females are outmanned nd outgunned and only through whining, ironically, to the system that oppresses them, can they get man's privilege points."

      That line right there shows your approval of the dominance men have over women and demonstrates another reason why I wrote this."

      Hell of a comprehension problem, then, my friend. I may have to break this down a little for you.

      This was actually NOT showing dominance over women. Feminist =/= women...you know this right?

      Feminists whining to the system is NOT whining to men, but the system (AKA Society and the controlling forces behind that)

      Man's Privilege points is no more real that the mythical Patriarchy I referenced. If you thought that I was being serious when I said "The Patriarchy being a mythical destructive force that resides in a male mindmeld. Males are all in on it and get Patriarchy Privilege points that they are loathe to check." then I wonder how you as a man and knowing that none of us get "Male Privilege Points" can actually and in seriousness reference this aspect of my commentary as being understood to be genuine.

      No, I really want you to tell everyone exactly what a male privilege point is, where it is obtained, what it looks like, what it is redeemable for and when you (as a man) first received this. (Or perhaps admit that you actually knew this was not serious and were - in pretending to take it seriously - being dishonest).

      So given that you repeatedly tell you have not said stuff that you clearly have. Being that you have simply parroted the wage gap myth without actually researching the subject matter. Being that you have misrepresented pretty much everything in respect to what Anti-Feminist men and women are about and are not about? Being that you keep banging on about women needing to understand and get rights and equality when they have rights and equality?

      Why are you being dishonest?

      My article was not about empowering, it was about educating those that think they need to be anti-feminist but have not idea what feminism is and entertaining those that are fed up with the ignorant anti-feminist memes. It's a structural and historical issue that makes it harder for women to enter Congress. It's an institutional problem. Why are fewer women interested in Congress or certain jobs? I never said men "owned" women. That came from your mind and interpretation? Why?

      You have no idea what "equal pay" means. It's equal pay for equal work not equal pay for any random job. Women, on average, earn less than men for the same work and same education and experience level. Certainly, some jobs are higher paying. That's not the issue.

      I never said it was about the "patriarchy." The fact is, women get paid less, have fewer opportunities and are sexualized (and raped and the men in charge do nothing about it in the military or on university campuses) and not treated equally in the media nor at many jobs. Feminism is about equality and anti-feminists don't understand that.

      Feminism has educated many women about their rights and I hope it still does. Anti-feminists have no issues with women in the work place. That wasn't the issue. Anti-feminists have no clue about the unequal pay and unequal treatment of women because they are lucky enough to be apart from those realities. It's all going well for them, so they just don't see it.

      Why do you have an issue with female/male equality and protection under the law?

      "Females are outmanned nd outgunned and only through whining, ironically, to the system that oppresses them, can they get man's privilege points."

      That line right there shows your approval of the dominance men have over women and demonstrates another reason why I wrote this.

      I am terribly sorry, but your article did not sell your position at all.

      Now not enough women in Congress. I have two things to say here, do equal amount of women CHOOSE politics as what men do. If you say you do not know or that you suspect that they don't, then do NOT try to be sly and suggest that it is some Patriarchal problem. Being that females are a higher percentage of voters in the country, why are the Female politicians not being voted in?

      Be a little bit honest.

      Women were never OWNED by their man. That is a false narrative. History revisionism that Feminists like. Same as the false narrative of pay gap. The figures that you often see of women getting paid 3/4 of what men get paid is NOT man and woman in same position in company but the man gets a higher pay cheque. That is incorrect. What is correct is that the average of all fulltime women's wages compared to the average fulltime male's wages is 25% lower.

      The reason for this is pretty much the same reason for the 95% of all death or injury in the workplace being males. It comes down to choices. If men are stupid enough to take jobs that are more dangerous, more remote, longer hours, dirtier, more physically strenuous and so on, whereas women choose to do jobs that do not have these undesirable components, then they DO NOT DESERVE the higher pay men get for doing these things. Now moaning that men get higher pay is childish.

      Women's liberation? Liberation from what? What does the Western Women need to be liberated from what? What rights does the Western Woman not have? Another false narrative? No? You just wanted to throw it out there hoping it would stick as a point of contention?

      Anti-feminists have no issue with women in the workplace so why THIS false narrative? There has to be reasons I am sure, I am sure it is not that you want to just be dishonest, right?

      Finally Feminism does NOT empower women. It just doesn't. It teaches that women are in fact disempowered and are working against the system. Swimminhg against the tide so to speak. That they are oppressed and always have been, by the Patriarchy. The Patriarchy being a mythical destructive force that resides in a male mindmeld. Males are all in on it and get Patriarchy Privilege points that they are loathe to check. Females are outmanned nd outgunned and only through whining, ironically, to the system that oppresses them, can they get man's privilege points.

      The fact that they have the same rights and options is by no means equalising because of feelings. You can not quantify how valuable feelings are and if a women "feels" something then the whole of society must bend around her because she has no accountability in this Patriarchal system and need to have her "feels" looked after.

      That is not strength or empowerment. Telling a young woman that she has the same rights as a man and and same opportunity. That life is tough for everyone and that she is accountable for her decisions and choices. She has to bear the cost of her own choices and she can enjoy the fruits of her own efforts and successes. THAT is empowerment.

      Your article did not empower. It did not provide insight, humour, and unfortunately with all of the false narratives, it was completely dishonest.

      Why did you bother making it?

      I think they are afraid of being butch. Silly, you don't have to be. after all, to evolve means to love eve.

      We all can embrace our female side. Being a feminist doesn't mean you stop being feminine!

      Freedom to be who you are, and have equal rights. That's it.
