We live in the Age of Misandry...and one of the primary features of this epoch is the present reality that most of the denizens are utterly convinced that we actually live in an Age of Misogyny.
Kinda like a President of a country that is engaged in two different wars of foreign occupation winning the Nobel "Peace" prize...but I digress.
Take the latest invasion of commenters over at the Spearhead.
The original article was based on making the observation that the science fiction genre has undergone a feminization process. Pro-Male/Anti-Feminist Tech (hereafter referred to as PMAFT) actually presented several concrete examples of just exactly what he meant by making that claim.
The bevvy of responses have been quite the revelation.
The term misogyny and misogynist are used so readily and easily, it almost makes one wonder if in fact it is really nothing more than a Pavlovian conditioned response. As soon as any observation, fact, or notation is made of a gender dynamic that questions the culturally indoctrinated feminist orthodoxy, the terms "MISOGYNY" and "MISOGYNIST" comes flying out like dog spittle at the sound of a bell.
And the women commenters? Just about all of them took personal offense, and proceeded to resort to the entire catalog of shaming tactics as well as bear their personal testimonials about how they were Science Fiction fans their whole lives...and that women have always been involved in writing science fiction!
You don't say, ladies?
Here's a sampling of these comments:
News to me that science fiction is a “male form of fiction”. Specially as I’m female and have been a fan of science fiction almost as soon as I could read.
Notice the immediate assumptions here. Calling Science Fiction "a male form" is cause for immediate offense!
Never mind that women and girls can be fans of NFL Football almost as soon as they could watch TV, I guess it would be offensive to point out that the NFL is a "male form" of competitive sport.
We women have always been there and fans of science fiction. Even my mom was a fan.
Would someone kindly show me where PMAFT wrote anywhere in his article that women couldn't, shouldn't or have never had anything to do with reading or writing science fiction?
But thanks for letting me, a woman, know that I’m not welcome in the world of sci-fi.
Ahh...so pointing out the change in themes and gender focus in a genre, from a more masculine-centric to a female-centric one is the same as letting women know that they are "not welcome?" I guess pointing out the typical portrayal of incompetent fathers being berated and emasculated by empowered super mom characters that are ubiquitous in today's mainstream TV shows means women are no longer welcome to watch sitcom TV anymore?
You ladies are certainly showing exactly where the stereotype of women letting their emotions override their logic comes from...
Awww, poor baby. Sorry to hear about your dick falling off because women are reading (and writing!) good science fiction. But that’s okay — there’s plenty of Perry Rhodan left out there for you.
Oooh, shaming language! PMAFT will just have to live with the humiliation. Somehow, I think he'll manage...
Thursday weighed in with a good observation:
Not just defective, I would add "offensive."
I agree with the general point of this post that any area of culture that doesn’t go out of its way to be female friendly is automatically deemed to be defective.
Indeed, that is exactly the impetus behind the large number of like-minded responses PMAFT's original article elicited!
The best way to promote real misandry in society is to make everyone think the existence of mythical forms of misogyny is the problem.
UPDATE: I just submitted an article to the Spearhead that was meant to directly address all of the visiting commenters, entitled We Are All Misogynists Now.
Pro-Male/Anti-Feminist Tech’s article about the feminization of Science Fiction television brought to The Spearhead a horde of blue pill-taking, politically correct, indoctrinated and brainwashed commenters only too eager to spit out their Pavlovian-conditioned, pre-programmed responses to any conveyed idea that runs counter to the mainstream, Gyno-centric cultural values of our BraveNewWorldOrder.
