Not all feminists…

Speaking of the The Other McCain

I’m a semi-regular commenter there. It’s easier than writing my own stand-alone blog entries. When I’m tired or busy, that’s a big thing.

One of Robert Stacy McCain’s big things is
Sex Trouble. He’s written a book on it and he’s revising the book now.

As Mr. McCain explains it, radical feminism has declared war on human nature. That’s fine as far as it goes, but RSM puts ALL feminists in one category and considers them all guilty for the excesses of the RadFems.

On the other hand, the RadFems claim to speak not only for all feminists, but for all women.

But curously they overlook crimes against women if they can’t blame white hetrosexual men.

Now, Mr. McCain has a point, several of them actually. My issue is that… (wait for it)

NOT ALL FEMINISTS ARE LIKE THAT.

Certainly not all
women are like that. What we have is a very small group that wants political power and public validation in the worst way. Yes, it’s another case of Those Who Want To Be Noticed.

The loudest voices are those who are disconnected from life. And those are the ones I don't want to be associated with.


Oddly enough, the RadFems and Mr. McCain are pushing the same idea.
ALL feminists do X, We know it’s not true. Mr. McCain knows it’s not true. The RadFems deny it but they know it’s not true.

It just serves their purpose as if it is.

That’s my principle annoyance with Mr. McCain.

I know women who call themselves feminists who are nothing like that. They’re interested in equality not special privileges. But they aren’t the ones demanding attention.

Which means I’m going to pull my reluctant advocate hat on again. I only do that when one group is unable or unwilling to speak for themselves.

See, much of the Manosphere (and some of McCain’s commenters) would have you believe that the problem is that women have too many rights. I want to only focus on three here.

First of course is a woman’s right to vote. That predated me by a bit, but overall I think it’s a good idea. Just because someone’s perspective is different doesn’t mean it’s wrong. And if someone doesn’t have voting rights, it’s easier to OFFICIALLY® make them less than human. Don’t believe me? Just look at what happens to illegal immigrants in the U.S. today. Or underage kids…

The second is property rights. Yes it can be abused, but the lack of property rights makes abuse of the law much easier.

And finally is the right of association. That includes the right to walk away. Combined with property rights that makes leaving a bad marriage much easier.

Those three rights are cornerstones to our personal identity in the U.S. There is no reason to deny those rights because of gender. Men can’t do that without making ourselves less human and certainly less deserving.

Let Freedom Ring.

Women in combat

All other things being equal, strength and weight are going to win out.

Given the fact that many of the opponents our armed forces will face don't follow the nice rules, any female in combat is prey.

Speaking only for myself, I want the U.S. armed forces to be the toughest, most capable sons of a gun on the face of the planet. Especially the elite units. I want them to make other national leaders nervous, even if they are half way across the globe. I want whispers in the darkest shadows of just what happens when someone dares threaten freedom if an American serviceman can do something about it.

Any female who can fill the physical and mental requirements without any allowances for their sex has my respect. All the more so if they show the warrior virtues. But by all the warrior gods they'd better damn well hold their own and more.

I say that as a man who hasn't served but loves Lady Freedom and all she implies.


Originally these were my comments made on a
thread at The Other McCain.

Then there is this.

Ranger School, which grooms the Army’s most elite special operations fighting force, opened its doors to women for the first time this year. Eight of the 20 women who originally entered the school's first co-ed class were allowed to recycle through the program after they fell out in their first go-round. The Friday announcement confirmed this happened again. Three of the eight were invited to take the course over again in late June.

Let them be forgotten

One thing we know is that the mass killers count on their names becoming infamous to strike fear into people's hearts, even if they weren't involved in the shootings. The shooters want to live in infamy.

So why don't we take that away from them? Forever? Let them be remembered as cowards who only dared attack unarmed victims.
