SEXISM IS INHERENT: the proof
December 5, 2007
The following is a humble little hypothesis I developed which needs proofing. It proves that sexism is inherent. Feminists are welcome to refute any part of it, and I hope you choose to do so.
Sexism is inherent:
- The desire for sex is inherent, with the degree lying upon a continuum.
- The desire for power/control is inherent, with the degree lying upon a continuum.
The intersection of these two desires is sexism, with the degree lying upon a continuum. It should go without saying (but included for clarification) that because both of those two desires are inherent, the intersection is inherent.
This dictionary was used to establish the meaning and intent of all word used.
I understand that even the existence of this proof is upsetting to people, especially to feminists who need a heavy dose of faith in the goodness of men in order to continue fighting for equality. Countless women have expressed exactly that sentiment to me, and I believe their sincerity when they say it. I understand, and I am sorry for causing you pain, but you need to understand something. You do not fight for women’s rights because you love men. You do not fight for women’s rights because you hate men. You fight for women’s rights because you love women. If you even thought for one second that sexism is inherent, as I do, that would be the impetus to fight all the harder, not less.
The blinders would come off, though, and that is terrifying. To imagine the soul of a monster who is bigger than you, who only pretends to care about you, and yet to know that in the deepest recesses of his heart that he thinks of you as only a fucktoy. That is the real fear, ladies. Look at that fear and laugh as if laughing at shadows, because true knowlege is the ultimate light, illuminating all before it.
That fear is also groundless, which is another reason to laugh. Women have always been intimidated by the threat of physical harm, but men have always been intimidated by the scorn of a rightious woman. Who’s the one who leaps from shadows, now? Men drink women’s love and devotion like water, and piss it out as if it is nothing special. Sojourners, they cannot survive on piss. One of their biggest slight-of-hands is convincing you they can.
While I am deeply sorry to cause distress to the women who are still reading, please keep in mind that the misogynists hate this proof even more than you do. Trust me, they will not gleefully hi-five each other as soon as they notice that I have named their game for what it is. Theirs is a game of misdirection, and that game depends on willful blindness to continue. They would be first in line to denounce this little proof, but because they always attack the person instead of the idea presented, and because they only have one way to deal with uppidity women, at least one of them would hunt me down and rape me to death if they could.
Ask Kathy Sierra if I’m exaggerating. Ask the families of the four women a day who are murdered by their loving partner if I’m exaggerating. Ask Du’a Khalil Aswad if I’m exaggerating. Ask all the women who use gender neutral log-in names to avoid sexual harrassment while they chat about anything if I’m exaggerating. Ask all the women bloggers who routinely suffer DOS attacks and have to retreat into totally hidden, invitation-only private forums if I’m exaggerating.
I do not expect many people to bother attempting to refute this proof; my experience has been that the reaction is limited to expressions of denial. I understand, and I am sorry for causing you pain, but the truth isn’t going away just because it upsets you. Most feminists who read this will immediately want to write long soliloquies on the gentleness of men, and most men will claim to not understand a damn thing except that some internet bitch is having her period.
There was a fascinating thread here, but I think Hearrrt is a little uncomfortable about what direction the coversation was taking, so I think it best to stop talking about it there. If anyone wishes to continue here, or elsewhere, please do so.
 I didn’t link to any bloggers, since they all copied the headline “female names get 25 times the harassment” of neutral names, and I wasn’t sure who discussed the more damning statistic. From the study, female names also received almost 100 times the harassment as MALE names. Plus, nobody probably wants anything to do with this post. 😉
Courage my friends, there is a way out! I wouldn’t be telling you these depressing things just to upset you, if a better way was impossible .
Anthropologists are unanimous in their agreement that during periods of resource contraction, the status of women has always declined.
Admitting a problem exists is only desirable when the goal is solving the problem.
The good done by men does not compensate for the harm done to ALL women.
Trends change, inherency is forever.
