MetaFeminist lives as a man for 18 Months and makes some profound conclusions... (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by gjs628

This may be old news for some of you, but I've recently discovered a piece ABC did about a Lesbian feminist becoming a man for 18 months and what she learned in the process.

What this woman says at the end of the 18 months is mostly mind-blowingly accurate, and is something I wish every single feminist on the planet could hear. The line that sums it all up - "Being a woman is a privilege, and I would rather have female privilege than male privilege."

She talks about how difficult it is for men to approach women; how hostile women become when a certain type of man tries to talk to them. She gains an understanding of male sexuality and explains it as, "For women, sex is up here, in the mind. For men, it's below the waist and is an essential bodily function." She explains how the drive is so intense that it's impossible to ignore, and without having testosterone in their bodies, is something women will never understand.

This really is a fascinating look into what happens when a woman opens her mind for once.

I'm going to try and find the book she wrote about her experiences, simply because she articulates herself incredibly well and has a way of explaining things about men's lives that I don't even think men are fully aware of themselves. I'm not saying she's a saint by any stretch of the imagination, just that it's nice to see a woman who isn't dogmatically opposed to men the way traditional feminists usually are.

EDIT: I realise now that this has been posted before, but hopefully this will be helpful for some newer members who may not have seen the previous postings.

As he noted below, u/DirtyProject0r had previously written an excellent summary some time ago from a previous account, which is worth a read as well.

As for the Female Privilege being "better" than Male Privilege, it's not that one is intrinsically better than the other, it's that she was pointing out that she would rather live as a woman because women have a lot of things much easier than men. This perception that the Patriarchy is this infallible power the crushes women and lets men get away with anything they want simply isn't true. In general, from a BP perspective at least (which most of the population will see this as), women are the ones that hold the Yes or No decision on sex, relationships, and rejection.

Men spend their lives trying to gather the courage to ask girl after girl out, only to be crushed by a single indignant response - "Go away". Women are worshipped in our society (the attractive/semi-attractive ones at least) and even a 3 can find someone to bang with a lot of makeup, the right clothes, and enough alcohol. A vagina is a vagina. Men need pussy, whereas women only want cock. Any guy under a 5 is usually lucky if they can find a hooker that would agree to fuck them.

Women are used to being chased and complimented. They are always believed; all they have to do is point a finger and make an accusation and everybody is immediately on their side regardless of who is lying. They can live like children in their own little fantasy worlds where everything revolves around them and they never have to face the harsh reality of life because they are so protected from hardship.

I would still choose to be a man any day of the week. The right man who works hard, takes care of himself, and knows what he's doing, will almost always command more respect than a woman in a similar position. It's hard work to get to that level, but once you start and commit to it, it doesn't feel like work at all. It feels like continous reward in exchange for continous dedication.

The problem is that ugly woman see the male privilege, but none of the female privilege, and ugly women have the loudest mouths.

[–]plenty_of_eesh 110 points111 points  (2 children)

I was thinking about this the other day. The hottest of women live in such a completely different world from men and the majority of women.

[–]ErenYeager91 42 points43 points  (1 child)

And still, they all pretend that looks don't matter. Wonder how those female ghouls feel when a hot chick with a ton of makeup on herself say "girls don't need to be pretty, it's all about the inside".

[–]haxurmind 34 points35 points  (0 children)

The same you should feel when a woman says 'just be yourself'.

[–]LuvBeer 54 points55 points  (9 children)

Absolutely. I use the same opener on 100% of my matches on tinder. Most of the time if I get a sarcastic or bitchy response, the woman is unattractive.

    [–]jashleyren2 13 points14 points  (4 children)

    Spot on. Women all feel the need to tell you their things that might make them unattractive. Then pretend that those things shouldn't make a difference. If it made a difference to her to "disclose" all of that info up front, then why expect a difference response? My attitude is that most women truly lack deep-seated confidence. Some have loud mouths, and some come off as arrogant. But, mostly, they are looking for validation. Why? be yourself, women. That will help sort things out for any potential friends or romantic acquantances.

      LOL. funny but that's usually how it happens.

      they somehow, some way, thru no fault of their own... or even your fault, end-up with another dick being as part of the discussion of why the relationship has failed.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Because you weren't accepting, supportive, or non-judgemental enough.

      [–]ForgingFakes 16 points17 points  (0 children)

      Or on the inverse; most women want a top 5% male. If they don't have this, the world is unfair.

      The ones that DO have this, are too content to be feminists.

      [–]Snazzy_Serval 37 points38 points  (5 children)

      The thing about ugly women is that the vast majority of women under 35 are only "ugly" because they're fat.

      If they want to stop being ugly, all they have to do is lose the weight and they get all that privilege.

      Regardless, I still believe that even fat women have it easier than the average man.

      [–]InChargeMan 9 points10 points  (0 children)

      I completely agree. Of course there are plenty of women that are just flat out ugly, but years ago when transitioning from HS to adulthood, most women can defiantly be in the "cute" category just by being in good shape.

      [–]Aarxnw 17 points18 points  (0 children)

      Lol, there are guys that are in to fat girls (or will do anything to get that pussy), there's no girls with a fetish for unattractive men. Fat girls have it easier in that regard.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      Haha yeah. The rest are deformed or very strange-looking.

      [–]Snazzy_Serval 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      And they are very few in number.

      There is only one girl that I can think of who was not fat and still ugly. And no I'm not including people that have Down's.

      [–]Luckyluke23 12 points13 points  (0 children)

      this. Feminism as a WHOLE isn't for attractive women. attractive women (7-10's) already have the world at their feet.

      that's why most femos are land whales with blue hair and resting bitch face. It's there way of getting the world at their feet. they can't use there looks, so they shame shame shame.

      [–]Sworn_to_Ganondorf 8 points9 points  (7 children)

      I always have a greater disgust for ugly AND bitchy/rude women. Like in what world do you think you can be both and enjoy any part of your life.

      [–]AshyBoneVR4 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      I'm so damn glad I'm not the only one that hates this. Not only do I hat ugly AND bitchy women, they confuse the shit outta me. I get that they think they can be a certain level of a bitch because they have a vagina, and they think it comes with some kind of a special power, but still, some uglies are so fucked up, their attitude can't be explained.

      [–]Docbear64 1 point2 points  (5 children)

      I'll raise you ugly , bitchy , and demanding . Reading a dating app and having a woman proclaim :
      1. Men Aren't shit
      2. She is a strong Personality and most " little boys" can't handle her
      3. In order to be graced with her presence you'll have to jump through a ring of fire, bring home 100K a year, andTreat her like the queen she is 24 /7 ( serve me slave).

      Is mind boggling , So you're hard to look at , you sound like a downer or aggravation , and you expect the world on a platter ?
      Yeah sweetie , i'm gonna pass.

        Yeah , But its a pity though , no matter how success she gets , men won't want to fuck her that much as we prefer looks .

          Yep. I knew this girl who was actually a legitimately innocent girl and was pretty attractive. She had a bunch of orbiters and was apparently oblivious to the fact that they all wanted to fuck her. One time she even joked "I think I can't tell when people like me, it seems like guys are always telling me that they have been trying to date me for a long time, I thought we were just friends.".

          Speaking loudly doesn't mean they have a say. Behind everything, this is a men dominated society.

          Hardly. Between the women and their sympathizers, the manginas, they will always have a majority.

          Very good book, surprisingly a real page-turner. I read it in less than half the time it normally takes me to read a book that size.

          Granted this was before I got red-pilled, so it was truly mind-blowing for me. Awoke men won't find as much interesting in it perhaps, because it's a lot of confirmation of what we already know.

            Fair enough - guess my literary standards aren't that high. But again, at the time all this was new to me so it was a real eye opener. Won't say it was the first taste of the red pill I had, but reading this occurred was early on in the process for me

            Women don't realize that there is more to being a man than fucking without being judged and male sports being watched more, and when they discover this fact that being a male is only good for men because only men can handle the responsibility of what it means to be male, they tie their hair back in pigtails and prance around the posies.

            [–]sweeptheleg55 106 points107 points  (10 children)

            I think women pretending to be unaware or being unaware of female privilege is the worst part of all this male priveledge shit. You have to be an asshole to take advantage of any meaningful male priveledge. Every woman on the planet will have the most meaningful experience "love" offered to them constantly and in many under the surface ways. Men have to learn to stuff their feeling in a box and get shot down if they want a chance of meeting a girl. It's all on the male to experience the pain in the opening of an interaction.

            [–]FrostyBlowmanSnowman 64 points65 points  (7 children)

            Honor is exclusively a male abstraction.

            I think deep down, most women know that they have privilege over men in our society. They may not even consciously realize it.

            Even more power can be had by strategically playing the victim card whilst supposedly being "strong and independent." It's admirable what they can get away with. Honor is dictated by what you do when nobody is looking.

            [–]human_bean_ 6 points7 points  (5 children)

            There's nothing admirable with it. Being driven by your base emotion is not something I would call virtuous.

            [–]FrostyBlowmanSnowman 23 points24 points  (4 children)

            It's admirable in the same way that I can respect the military strategy of someone like Hitler or Stalin.

            I can't be mad at the player for outplaying me in the game.

            [–]DatPhatDistribution 14 points15 points  (2 children)

            Just wanted to point out that Hitler was a terrible military strategist. He was an excellent propagandist, terrifyingly good.

            [–]FrostyBlowmanSnowman 7 points8 points  (0 children)

            True. He was arguably a good politician though, at least at the start.

            You get my point.

            [–]king_of_red_alphas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            To belabor the point and somebody whose studied an unhealthy amount about Hitler.

            He actually wasn't all that great of a politician either. He, like many other phenomenons in history, was a product of his time, circumstance and opportunity.

            A good example - if there had been no stock market crash in 1929, Hitler (and the Nazis) limited political success would have ended then and there.

            Once he got into power (through a series of odd political deals) Goebels was primarily the architect of creating the Fuhrer myth and the biggest believer in it was Hitler himself.

            Anyway ...

            [–]Forcetobereckonedwit 28 points29 points  (4 children)

            So accurate and the article/book/video are fascinating.

            We are truly different sides of the human coin. The most frustrating part is that while we as men are aware of the parts each plays, the female side seems completely ignorant of their power, their misandry, their ridiculous privilege, and their default status of "she who shall be upheld under all circumstances" in our society.

            [–]jashleyren2 8 points9 points  (0 children)

            Spot on accurate. And, gents, let us not go without mentioning the "appendage" to all of the girl power: children. There is a reason why the words "women and children...." are littered throughout history. Women have privilege. Let that woman also be a mother, then there is an extra step up in the privilege category. I doubt many of us would disagree that a woman who has given birth CAN earn more privilege. It depends on the circumstances and then what she does with that status. In a world that is caught up in power and privilege, this mother privilege is abused now.

            [–]GuitarHero07 6 points7 points  (1 child)

            This is all by design, my friend. Women are the biggest consumers in society. Even though women earn less than men (due to lower hours spent working etc.), they spend more. Women drive 70-80% of consumer purchases.

            Women also outlive men on average and there are slightly more women than men in most Western electorates. Therefore, it is extremely important for politicians to appeal to them in order to win elections.

            Who are the biggest consumers of useless degrees? Who is more likely to pay $40,000 a year for a bachelors in art history? The educational establishment will of course focus on its most lucrative clients.

            Finally, there is the biological reality that sperm is cheap and eggs are extremely precious. You wipe out 50% of a tribe's females and that tribe is in huge existential danger. You wipe out 50% of the men? You can still crank out the same number of babies.

            [–]Forcetobereckonedwit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Indeed. For years I have been pointing out that at our most basic, we are sperm and eggs. That explains all of it.

            [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Not only women but society as a whole. We do it to ourselves and each other, just as much as them. Realized recently, that despite being consciously aware of how far the tables are really turned - I don't give a fuck about any man other than myself, neither.

            [–]En-Zu 30 points31 points  (18 children)

            She talks about the emotional isolation of tradcon male society. But I still wonder if the experience of that emotional isolation wasn't particularly acute to her because she was a woman. I know men still have emotional needs, but I wonder if hers weren't more acute.

            Also, I think she lacks the perspective of heterosexual females and why they're attracted to men. She keeps comparing male and female sexuality as visceral vs. mental/emotional. She's close to a realization in the anecdote about her gender flipping in the middle of a date and heterosexual women still offering to do sexual things with her when they wouldn't as a man. The insight there is that heterosexual women don't suffer emotionality or expressions of weakness in men and how they, on some level, enjoy being pursued and "consumed" in addition to more romantic and sensitive things (which they still wanted from her as a woman) This bifurcation of desires is not really something she can relate to from her non-heterosexual perspective. It's very commonplace in DDlg or s&m relationships...I kind of postulate that s&m is much less common in lesbian relationships for this reason.

            I'll also say that her as a man looks better than I do and her voice is deeper. I could use that voice therapy she used kek.

                You have a pretty expansive range and I'm surprised you can cycle between the three voices like that. Must be good for impressions ha.

                I will say that it does seem effortful for you to go that low. Do you find that to be the case? Also it would be pretty jarring if you were to forget yourself and go back to your default voice (which I presume is the middle now) from your deep voice like you did.

                Either way, i'd love to know how you got to be able to do that first voice.

                        As for the Female Privilege being "better" than Male Privilege, it's not that one is intrinsically better than the other,

                        I mean the entire civilized world is built around putting women on a pedestal. Its pretty significant when your gender is essentially revered.

                        Unless you're ugly.

                        Would you rather be a wild or a domestic animal?

                        Wild animals face likelihood of being killed and eaten, exposure, and frequent starvation. Domestic animals are protected, fed, given medical care and shelter.

                        Wild animals are free to go where they will, leave a bad place, have babies whenever they can, and live out their lives. Domestic animals are surgically altered and medicated into submission, live in filth, then slaughtered and either disposed of or eaten when they reach the end of their useful short lives.

                        Some people would choose either one. But know well, being on a pedestal, a domestic animal, is not all a good thing. Read about what happens to the living goddesses in Nepal.

                        [–]johnchapel 2 points3 points  (4 children)

                        While I can appreciate your philosophical approach to looking at it, we're talking about privilege. and in your analogy, it is unquestionable that domestic animals get the privilege.

                        [–]DatPhatDistribution 0 points1 point  (2 children)

                        Does the domestic animal really get the privilege though? I know he was referring to mainly livestock in his example, but take for example, a wild mountain lion and one in captivity. The one in captivity never has the thrill and satisfaction of stalking and pouncing on a deer. The feeling of victory. The captive never gets to leave a small enclosure, while a wild one can have many miles of territory to roam. The life of the wild one is undoubtedly more difficult, but the freedom is worth the sacrifice. I don't think any mountain lion, given the choice, would chose captivity. If you have a dog, just ask them, do you want to go outside? Their answer is unanimously, fuck yes!

                        My apologies. In my white-cis-het-privileged mind I acquainted dildos with phallus', which I then presumed was the masculine pronoun. I was wrong to do this. I thank you for this learning opportunity to re-examine my inherent guilt, and thus hopefully come closer to decolonizing my racist, sexist, and genderist biases. I'm sorry I was born white and male. It won't happen again.

                        Was more along the lines of identity issues.

                        She had to lie to people she considered friends and twist her life to avoid revealing her gender.

                        Continuously doing this does put undue stress on a person.

                        I think a good chunk of TRP is feminist and either doesn't realize it or won't admit it. Little things like downvoting you for dropping true redpills (redpill is truth, just truth, not a specific set of ideas or philosophies), or saying that marriage is a trap (A true alpha doesn't GET trapped, AND he marries who he wants, when he wants). The most feminist "redpill" I've seen on here is the whole "You don't own her, you're just renting her until the next guy comes along"...Thats CUCK mentality. Alphas are dominant, domineering, intelligent, and lay claim to that which is theirs. The mentality is what's important. Having the mentality of "I'm just another schlub w a dick, she'll find another soon bcuz I'm jus a male heh heh heh" is insidiously feminist.

                        Agreed, marriage is not a trap if your a true alpha and not a beta trying to be alpha. Confidence above all is the true alpha trait. Looks and money and everything else is just icing for women. Why do you think some of these 10s chase guys going nowhere in life?

                        things that i want to see from feminists:

                        1. i want them to REQUIRE that all females register for selective service at 18 yr old like men... bc it's not fair for only men to be drafted into war.

                        2. i want them to demand that men get the same sentencing for crimes as women do. for example, school teachers molesting students: the male teacher gets 25 yrs (& prison raped); the females get 6 months + community service.

                        I read an account by a trans woman going through the steps to "become a man" some years ago. It was much better than this piece on explaining character and essence differences between the sexes because this woman also went through hormone therapy to become masculine. I wish I could remember where or when or who wrote it. She/He described what it felt like becoming male and how interactions with other people in every aspect of life changed completely. Walking down the street changed, bathroom interactions, restaurant, gym, everywhere and everything had been altered completely.

                        Anyone remember this piece?

                        You are not the first to write about it. I wrote an extensive and much-upvoted post on this exact subject about a year ago on my old and since-deleted account, though I was not the first to write about it either.

                        Since it is one of the most upvoted field-reports on this subreddit, it might be a good idea to first search on the subject to see if someone already posted about it.

                        Nevertheless, Vincent's findings cannot be shared enough in my opinion.

                        A lesbian gets some T shots and realizes men behave the way they do because it's their nature. Says she rather be a girl and be treated like what she is (weak and childish). Not a big realization for me but I guess it is for those who haven't realized that it doesn't matter what women say they all know this in one level or the other. Otherwise they wouldn't withdraw sex when it's in their best interest. They wouldn't take advantage of their privileges. They wouldn't use your dick against you during "rape accusations" while their vaginas are golden.

                          When women refer to male privilege they're not talking about the overweight and balding guy who's social awkward and makes 30K per year...they're thinking of the guy with the looks of Brad Pitt and the power/wealth of Donald Trump

                          It gets said a lot but if you're not in the top 20% of all men you might as well be invisible

                          How is it possible that you consider "female privilege" superior to "male privilege"?

                          As a male, I can do whatever the fuck I want, I can be competitive, raise every single skill I can think of with no limits, no prejudice. I can fuck as many women as I want.

                          I am strong, big, respected. I make decisions for my life and potentially others. I can (and am) proud of being smart, not ashamed of being an avid reader (for example).

                          I think you guys, who consider being female a privilege, haven't realized the full potential of what being a male means. Female privilege is getting the basic kit for life without doing anything. Male privilege is to have the possibility of getting all that life can give putting the effort.

                          Would you really rather be a woman?

                          And they never seethe average 18 year old woman and the average 18 year old man next to each other.

                          every guy will fuck the average 18 year old woman.

                          less than half of women will want to fuck the 18 year old man.

                          Tits, ass, and vagina are like OP cheat codes for the game... the only problem is the kit loses it's power the more it is used and the longer they have it.

                          Meanwhile the man's kit has almost infinite improvement slots.

                          I agree with you.

                          I have nothing against (most) women. There are many women who deserve all the respect and love in the world (in my personal case, my mother and my maternal grandmother are at the top of my list), but some abuse it, along with their knights. With that in mind, I can easily say the following, as I've said before here in TRP: women only have the power they have because some of us men let them have it. In more recent years, all these sjw groups are only rampant in the west because we give them the power to get away with it. Men build civilization, and men still hold its power, to a bigger extent than it may seem. All these women and cucks running around trying to ruin our experience remind me of those children who keep doing shit and getting away with it even though they can't do jack if the parents start being assertive.

                          [–]bidric -1 points0 points  (3 children)

                          Because they don't realize what they have, but we do. And we do realize that our "kit" is many times stronger than theirs. As someone above pointed out, the man's kit has almost infinite improvement slots.

                          It's like the male is a very fast car, and the female is a very slow car, but they start way ahead. And you guys are like

                          I don't even want to compete! They're cheating!!

                          I was just making sure you didn't overlook that. I get what you are saying. Men, due to their remarkable potential to transform themselves in a greater image, have always been the superior gender in that regard. Most of what we have today has been made possible by our ancestors. I'm currently reading The Book of Zed The Zen Priest, one I recommend, and this precise topic is nicely talked about in one of the early chapters, titled "The Secret of Life: Shut up and shovel the fuckin' gravel."

                          Understood and a little agreed with sentiment .... but not in regards to "privilege". Not even the point of the article, the book, or the post .... or maybe I am missing the point as well.

                          What I took from it is that you have a woman who is figuring out that there is a female privilege and that it is a much paved easier route than the "male privilege".

                          I do not believe in the options you wrote as privilege and I don't limit this view of unlimited potential to gender. I am a huge believer in the self reliance and work ethic and sense of improvement. everyone should have this and everyone should improve their life possibilities.

                          1) Display an imposing presence as easily as men can.

                          2) Command others easily as men can (loud voice, strong body)

                          3) Be taken seriously as easy as men can.

                          Please let me add some more

                          4) Be able to give no fucks about everything, and not care about what other people think.

                          5) Be free of having to carry a baby for 9 months

                          6) Be free

                          You'll see the light when you realize that being a male is all about enjoying the process of performing effortful tasks. Being a woman (i.e, be able to get some benefits without having to perform effortful tasks) isn't a privilege when you enjoy working your ass off.

                          The low-average male is as weak in socity as an high-average woman. But being a "strong" male is thousands of times bettter than being a "strong" woman.

                          And it's not hard at all to become a "strong man". Just fucking be a man, be competitive, and work your ass off.

                          Lol, someone doesn't understand the difference between "facts" and "opinions", or as we call it around here FEELZ > REELS

                          1) Want to be imposing? buy a gun. Instantly equal in terms of imposing/threatening.

                          2) Women have been using their sexuality to get what they want for most of human history.

                          3) Right, which is why a woman is about to be fucking president, and why just about any female problem is taken more seriously than male ones.

                          4) Who is putting a gun to women's heads and forcing them to care what other people think?

                          5) Again, who is putting a gun to women's heads and forcing them to be pregnant?

                          6) Seriously, "be free"? You are trolling right? There are ALOT more men in prison than women.

                          You're an idiot.

                          1) Imposing != threatening, respect != fear

                          2) Would you use your sexuality to get what you want? No, because that's humilliating. You can get anything you want using your skills/wit/strength. Guess who feels a lot prouder of his/her accomplishments?

                          3) Not really, men just don't take their own problems as seriously, because that's feminine. I don't personally feel like I have about a lot problems, mainly because I deal with shit straight away and never feel depressed in any way doing so.

                          Girl, your boyfriend cheated on you? cry cry cry

                          Boy, your girlfriend cheated on you? No problem, I don't need that girl anyways/have other girls to call

                          Girl, your mom died? cry cry cry

                          Boy, your mom died? Alright, I'm sad. Now let's move on.

                          4) Their psychological anatomy

                          5) Their psychological anatomy

                          6) Are you in prison? Are you in danger of going to prison? Just don't commit crimes if you don't want to go to prison, and please don't bring up the extremely low % of innocent people in prison just because they're males. EDIT: Do you know what % of men are CEOs? Do you know what % of presidents are men? Do you know how much more likely you're to possess an advanced degree than a woman is? Do you what % of people in STEM are men?

                          You're an idiot.

                          Man, I'm so happy writing this. I feel so empowered. Makes me feel so happy to be man, thank you for the feelz.

                          You seem to be saying that there is a lot of things women can't do based off of biology. I thought you were making the claim that women couldn't do things because of social pressure. The two arguments are very different.

                          [–]bidric 0 points1 point  (4 children)

                          Well, your personality (which depends on your biology) determines how you react to social pressure.

                          [–]Endorsed Contributorthelandofdreams 0 points1 point  (3 children)

                          But citing your "personality" as an excuse for your failure exacts zero sympathy for men. Why should it for women?

                          Ok, so women's "personalities" are the reason they have been 0/50 female presidents.

                          You won't get any argument here if that is the track you are taking. I think you need to clarify your stance a little bit when you start posting about how hard women have it.

                          That is like saying "I have it so bad because I lay on the couch all day and do nothing."

                          Well...yeah

                          [–]bidric 0 points1 point  (2 children)

                          I think women have it "hard" as in "I would in no way be satisfied with what a woman gets".

                          [–]Endorsed Contributorthelandofdreams 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                          what a woman gets

                          You mean, what a woman EARNS.

                          I just want to point something out (not disagreeing with the rest, btw):

                          Boy, your mom died? Alright, I'm sad. Now let's move on.

                          I find it seriously hard to believe you're serious. Either you:

                          a) are speaking from no experience at all

                          b) have experience with that but your mom was a bad, bad person who you're detached yourself from

                          c) are completely emotionless

                          Men shouldn't cry often, but when it's for things like a best friend, wife, son/daughter, father, grandfather/grandmother, and especially a mother, then it's normal.

                          [–]bidric 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                          Not emotionless at all, just less prone to get attached to my emotions. I've tried/studied/meditated for a while to try to accept what is, instead of attaching myself to the past/future or my physical emotions.

                          [–]Mike377774774 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                          So I presume that actually happened? If so, I'm sorry, it is hard. If I'm right in saying it happened I'm still in awe of how casual you sound.

                          great podcast on the author - http://loveandradio.org/2015/05/eternity-through-skirts-and-waistcoats/ only partially on this book, but still interesting

                          This is an older story in terms of the internet but still a new story in the sense that newer people may have not seen it and is worthy of a repost.

                          I run r pussypassdenied where this story has been featured numerous times in the sub. The tl;dr is basically 'no shit sherlock' of her work. Take her experience and what she writes with a grain of salt. In fact pour that salt shaker in your mouth with stuff like this.

                          TRP is a toolbox and her work is a single case study.

                          I remember hearing about a similar situation around a year ago. Always good anecdote to show someone when they don't quite see eye to eye with you.

                          Fascinating, but it's not clear that she was/is a feminist.

                          [–]jabberwockysuperfly 3 points4 points  (4 children)

                          An openly lesbian writer living in Manhattan? I'm gonna give better than 50/50 that she's a feminist. Still you are right. It doesn't say it explicitly.

                            My sister is a biological (as opposed to political) lesbian and not a feminist and she grew up in Brooklyn.

                            You shouldn't care or be impressed just because you found a woman is or has become a near unicorn ( in the sense that she has became more self-aware ) .

                            Sadly, feminists will just say the woman is a cis traitor and it's all made up. Feminists ignore facts about biology Creationists ignore facts about biology Nazi' ignore facts about biology

                            Never trust someone who makes up their own 'scientific facts' to suit their narrative.

                            What facts are Nazis ignoring? That's confusing.

                            Fuck this lesbo bitch in the ass.

                            OP think about the bullshit narrative you are accepting and promulgating.

                            Women - Men are bad because we say they're bad.

                            Men - Um, no we're not blah blah blah.

                            Women - Fuck off patriarical Misogynists!

                            Later:

                            Lez woman - men aren't so bad! Things are soooo different for men and they have blah blah blah.

                            Women - OMG Rebecca did you hear about the lesbian? She gave us such insight into the male experience... Maybe men aren't so bad!

                            Fuck these dumb bitches and their solipsistic experiences. By posting this content all you really do is validate their ego and their superficial and myopic view of the world. These bitches are literally incapable of big thought so don't even validate the bullshit that spews from their gossiping mouths.

                            How many women philosophers do we look up to? Yeah. ZERO.

                            If a dumb bitch wants to know what life as a man is like all she has to do is shut her trap, open her eyes and ask.
