Is Leftism just one big category error? I’m increasingly coming to think so. If you can consistently tell when different things are different, and similar things are similar, you’ll never have your brain parasitized by SJW toxoplasma.
Via The Other McCain, a New York Times soyboy discussing “the implicit brutality of male sexuality:
After weeks of continuously unfolding abuse scandals, men have become, quite literally, unbelievable. What any given man might say about gender politics and how he treats women are separate and unrelated phenomena. Liberal or conservative, feminist or chauvinist, woke or benighted, young or old, found on Fox News or in The New Republic, a man’s stated opinions have next to no relationship to behavior.
Through sheer bulk, the string of revelations about men from Bill Cosby to Roger Ailes to Harvey Weinstein to Louis C.K. to Al Franken and, this week, to Charlie Rose and John Lasseter, have forced men to confront what they hate to think about most: the nature of men in general. This time the accusations aren’t against some freak geography teacher, some frat running amok in a Southern college town. They’re against men of all different varieties, in different industries, with different sensibilities, bound together, solely, by the grotesquerie of their sexuality.
The bold bits are the most fun, if you’ll forgive what sounds like a PUA line from Dickens’s London. No, Champ, they aren’t bound together, solely, by the grotesquerie of their sexuality.
They’re bound together solely by the fact that they’re all prominent media people.
I shouldn’t have to tell anyone that media people are all sexually twisted freaks. Cool Brittania has gone further down the sewer than we in a lot of ways, but they still have the right attitude about their talking heads: Performers are basically carny folk over there; newsreaders and especially journalists are a step below actual prostitutes.
I also shouldn’t have to tell anyone what happens when you give a lifelong loser his first taste of real power. Everyone has worked with a dorky-but-harmless guy who got made Assistant Shift Supervisor and suddenly turned into Heinrich Himmler.
And I really shouldn’t have to point out the strong correlation, which anyone with five minutes’ experience in the real world has noted, between single motherhood and liberalism. You can’t spell “social justice warrior” without D-A-D-D-Y I-S-S-U-E-S.
Give a group of degenerates with crippling daddy issues real power over another group of degenerates with shall we say nuanced notions of sexuality, and what the fuck do you expect will happen? As with the Weinstein affair, I’m not even slightly surprised that Franken, Charlie Rose, John (Pixar) Lasseter, etc. felt the urge to cop a feel — they are, by definition, degenerate freaks. I’m only surprised they felt they had to coerce it….
….well, no, actually I’m not, because again: Daddy Issues. Growing up, the only “men” these sad specimens see are the ones who occasionally buy them a toy on the way out the door after dumping a fuck into Mommy. Then they get to college, where they learn from their Foucault-enstupidated professors that human relations are nothing but domination, submission, and resistance. From this, it’s pretty easy to conclude that sex is power and power is sex.
Hence the Frankengroping. There are undoubtedly lots of ladies in the media who would’ve let Al Franken feel them up. Nina Burleigh, after all, publicly offered to blow Bill Clinton to thank him for his legislative accomplishments; surely the fearless author of the “Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Non-Intercourse Act of 2013” could get to second base with a reporterette from the Minneapolis Red Star Tribune. But getting to second base isn’t the point. The point is stealing second. Sex is power, remember? Or, as Stacy McCain is so fond of reminding us, PIV is always rape, ok?
Say what you will about the PUAs, they don’t succumb to our culture’s most prevalent category errors. Unlike this NYT dork, PUAs aren’t baffled by the fact that a man’s stated opinions have next to no relationship to behavior, because they have vast experience with women’s stated opinions… which are quite obviously often 180 degrees from their behavior, because women are people too.
UPDATE (11/29/2017): And now Matt Lauer, too.Is there a prominent liberal who a) routinely works around cameras, and b) isn’t a rape-o scumbag? It’s starting to seem not.
