The projected 900,000 attendance at tomorrow’s inauguration of the Avatar of Kek, the Great Wall-Builder, the Master of the Deal, the Slayer of Clinton the Terrible, Donald J. Trump, has the Feminist ignorati a little nervous.
While Feminists are, as they have taken great pains to inform us, “Strong and Independent and Don’t Need No Man,” they still feel the need to send out Eunuchs to try and drum up male support for their pity party, I mean, Women’s March.
Enter Zach Stafford.
As the Women’s March on Washington, D.C. now looks to have participation in the hundreds of thousands, eyes have begun to shift from the inauguration of the president-elect, who has struggled to secure A-list talent, and onto this massive, grassroots-led response to his unpopular election. And it should surprise no one that this overwhelming response is coming from women.
Oh noez! Trump can’t secure A-list talent for the inauguration! What a tragedy!
I am sincerely glad. This is the United States. We have a President, duly elected to a term of office. He is inaugurated into the office, not coronated as king.
This past election cycle was rough on all of us, but for many women even more so. From never-ending news cycles that gave archaic thoughts on women’s reproductive rights and in turn gave fresh hope to the Right to the never-ending allegations of sexual assault surrounding reality-TV star Donald Trump to even how we treated Hillary Clinton as a woman, it was an 18-month attack on women’s bodies – a successful one that in the end got a man elected.
Now, after we’ve enjoyed a moment of feminist hyperbole (NEVERENDING ALLEGATIONS), let’s look at some facts.
Thousands of people (and a few women) are transported annually through the area of the Clintons’ last “humanitarian war,” Kosovo.
Compare and contrast with a dozen accusations, none of which has been adjudicated, one of whom, Summer Zervos, has enough balls to sue Trump for DENYING her accusation, seemingly oblivious to the fact that falsely accusing someone of a felony is defamation per se.
But we’re getting lost in the trees here.
The fact is that Hillary Clinton has a history of warmongering; Trump is not.
Hillary Clinton has a history of lying under oath; Trump does not.
Hillary Clinton has a history of abusing the power of public office; Trump does not.
Hillary Clinton has a history of bribe-taking; Trump does not.
If Hillary Clinton is the best “Women’s candidate” you can bring to the election, if that’s the Feminists’ best shot, then I will happily never, ever vote for a woman for President.
While women walking shoulder to shoulder and yelling truths they’ve always known this Saturday does seem like the correct response to this very unfortunate chain of events, it is not, however, going to be enough to create the systematic change needed to redirect us out of the Twilight Zone we enter on January 20th. And as we now work to figure out what that ‘enough’ is as we enter this new presidency, where that work begins for men is standing with women on Saturday and beginning to own the fact that we’ve become far too great at taking women’s rights away and not great enough at fighting for them.
What rights do I, as an American citizen, possess that a woman, also an American citizen, does not?
I’ll go ahead and answer that: NONE.
But Feminists aren’t concerned with “rights,” as that term is conventionally understood. Their concerned with privileges and licenses, namely their “privilege” to live at the expense of many men through taxes and subsidies, as opposed to the privilege to live at the expense of one man (marriage).
The reluctance of so many men to get behind an event that doesn’t mention them is striking proof of that fact.
Ever since ideas around a march began to percolate after the November election, there was immediately an obvious lack of men signing up on Facebook groups and other organizing pages. The reason many have come to admit is because organizers have been unapologetic in the ways in which they marketed: “This is a movement that is led by women, but it is not just for women. It’s for all people,” Linda Sarsour, one of the march’s lead organizers, recently told the Washington Post. “You have to be okay with being led by women.”
I’ll repeat my earlier response here and add to it:
I’m okay with being led by a competent leader, man, woman, or Dalek. But because Feminism is a female-supremacist movement, its members are expected to submit only to female leadership, but never male leadership.
As for the addition, I find it interesting that Feminists are quick to offer advice to those outside of their group that they would never accept if given to them.
Hypothetically, let’s say a political group, a hypothetical Democrat Party one day came together and issued a statement containing the following:
“This is a PARTY that is led by men, but it is not just for men. It’s for all people. You have to be okay with being led by men.”
Don’t like that one? Try this one out:
“This is a CORPORATION that is led by men, but it is not just for men. It’s for all people. You have to be okay with being led by men.”
Let’s go with one more:
“This is a COLLEGE that is led by men, but it is not just for men. It’s for all people. You have to be okay with being led by men.”
Now, does anyone believe Feminists sit still for that? Of course not. They would shit enough bricks build Trump a new hotel. But this is the hypocrisy of the people who are supposedly in favor of “equality.” They don’t favor equality; they favor female supremacy.
Due to the justified centering of women and their bodies in what could be the largest singular political protest we’ve ever seen in the U.S., many men critiqued the movement with worries around this tactic. Men like New York magazine writer Johnathan Chait who tweeted out worries about the branding of the event and stated many have concluded “it’s a march for women, not for all Trump critics.”
I have to confess, I get a little wood when Progressives/Socialists/Feminists/SJWs start slitting each other’s throats in the name of ideological purity.
And while he is right that these reasons may contribute to men not wanting to participate, it is these reasons like “branding” that, at the end of the day, are the same misogyny that got a reality television star elected. So it’s here where men can and should work to create radical change by moving past their feelings of being left out that somehow always arise even though the entire history of the world has always been more focused on their bodies over women’s.
Here again, Feminists offer men “advice” that they would never accept themselves.
“Men need to move past their feelings”?
Translation: “Fuck your feelings.”
This is just another example of Feminist hypocrisy run amok. Feminist cry out that men don’t express their own feelings enough or in a manner women deem “appropriate” (by binge eating and crying, I suppose). But when men do articulate their feelings of being dismissed or left out, Feminists say “Man Up,” “Move Past Your Feelings,” or “Fuck Your Feelings.”
Feminists demand better treatment from you than they are ever willing to give to you.
As we’ve come to learn through the power of social media over years: #masculinitysofragile, and many men must feel explicitly included in anything in order to participate or take part. This habit even trickles down to having close relationships with other men (bro-mance) or even the toiletries they use in the shower. It’s a habit that exists due to us living in a patriarchal society that values men over women, even though women bear our children and participate in more free labor that keeps us all alive, while facing rates of higher discrimination in every way across the board.
And its maintenance is not because there is a true difference in the sexes that justifies men being paid more on the dollar than woman, for instance, but because men don’t want to let go of the privilege they’ve taken unjustly. The strength of this stubbornness in male privilege is clear through the fact that the potentially largest demonstration in U.S. history pulled together against a demagogue is led by women and is ignored by men even as democracy begins to sway.
Men do, and have done more, to preserve the lives and comfort of women, than women have ever done for men.
Waste management? 81.4% men.
Sewage treatement? 88.9% men.
Water and irrigation systems? 79.6% men.
Agriculture across the board? 75.4% men.
Construction? 90.7% men.
Mineral, oil, and gas extraction? 86.9% men.
Want “society” to be less “Patriarchal”? Try putting 50% of the “privilege of carrying civilization on your backs. Feeding babies and wiping asses doesn’t keep the lights on, the shelves stocked, or the water running.
But I forget myself. Feminists are so narcissistic and delusional and so blind to the existence of most men, that they believe the only “equality” that matters is among men who hold financial, political, or social power.
Taking part in the Women’s March this weekend would not just be powerful in regards to the optics of droves of men coming out and supporting half the population of the world in efforts that are connected to their lives, but in what men will learn while there. Things like how to take part in change and not think a man has to be the hero for once; things like being in a space with women and not talking over them; things like learning how to stand with women and not stand in front of them; things like acknowledging that women are powerful beyond measure and are punished for that daily.
Every man is the hero of his own life, if he chooses to be.
Sorry, buddy, but I have better things to do than hang around Feminists and be a prop for their public agitation.
Because it is these things that all men must learn if we want to not just stop Trump from creating the damage many fear, but also ensure we never elect another version of him again. And this is possible — I saw a version of this done the day after Donald Trump was elected president and I was at the Chicago rally outside of his tower. It was one of the numerous that erupted out of the pain of his win. As activists and citizens who had never been to a protest before sat on the street and chanted, a well-known women’s protest call-and-repeat began that left me almost in tears.
I don’t give a fuck about your tears or your pain or fears.
Because I am offering you the same advice you offered men not a few paragraphs ago:
“Move past your feelings.”
No, let me go ahead and hit the quote I like.
“Fuck Your Feelings.”
While women yelled at the tower “Our bodies, our choice” the men stayed quiet and once the women finished they responded “Their bodies, their choice”, and this went on for some time. And it was in that moment that I knew that we, men, had it in us to allow women to lead.
I agree. Your body, your choice.
But my money should stay safely away from your body and not finance any of those your choices.
As long as we show up in support and get out of their way.
Oh, I play to stay out of their way. Far out of their way. About as far out of their way as time and geography reasonably permit.
As for support, you can just pretend I do. Feminists are delusional in all other respects. Might as well add one more delusion to the pile.
