Came across this interesting article: https://archive.is/O8oDp
Here are some interesting bits:
Several female celebrities, by publicly distancing themselves from feminism, have caused considerable upset in feminist circles.
First there was actress Susan Sarandon, who told the Observer a couple of years ago, ‘I think of myself as a humanist because I think it’s less alienating’. Then, earlier this month, fellow actress Meryl Streep echoed Sarandon’s sentiments: ‘I am a humanist; I am for nice, easy balance.’ And, last week, Marion Cotillard said she does not ‘qualify’ herself as a feminist because ‘in the word feminism there’s too much separation’.
Clearly these actresses are intelligent to make millions of dollars. Not surprising that they are able to see through the bullshit of modern day feminism.
The backlash against these women has been extreme.
Why doesn't that surprise us here in trp?
One article dismissed Sarandon’s statement, saying ‘she didn’t mean it’. And online feminist hub Jezebel published a piece claiming that ‘Queen Meryl’ was ‘talking directly out of her butt’. It seems that it is officially unacceptable to refuse to call yourself a feminist. What these feminists don’t seem to realise is that disallowing dissent is tyrannical.
Seems like someone is up for a rude awakening.
But the most insulting part of the hysterical response to these women expressing their political views is the idea that they were somehow ignorant of what being a feminist entails.
Why doesn't that surprise me again?
Sarandon, Streep and Cotillard have a point about the divisiveness of contemporary feminism. It views the world through the narrow prism of gender and argues that women and men are inherently different. This is evident in the current feminist policing of sex, which rests on the assumption that all men are potential rapists and therefore women are doomed to live as victims. In this way, feminists refuse to believe in the potential for human beings to do good rather than bad, to have healthy sexual lives free of interfering rules and regulations.
Well. Clearly we don't want to identify tits and penis with a specific gender, but rather promote a perpetual victim mentality that oppresses the male gender to the point that would make the other gender free to survive and thrive in the Sexual market. Well.. If that doesn't help you root out feminism out of your mind, this nail in the coffin will:
Finally, contemporary feminists do not believe that women are independent, free-thinking individuals. Feminists promote a cliquey, sisterhood mentality, but not through a collective and positive sharing of ideas. They’re the kind of group you’d encounter at school who would shun you if you weren’t wearing the right kind of hairband. Today’s feminism is opposed to criticism and nuance, refusing to allow women to form their own opinions or challenge preconceived ideas. And feminists call for the state to intervene when they want an opposing view silenced, and launch Twitter wars against dissenting views.
Why doesn't the words like sisterhood mentality or intervention of state surprise us here in trp again? Call in redpill awareness. Now the author, who is a woman actually, goes on to say why many women are trying to be humanists instead of feminists, and delineates the thought process below.
Our humanism is universal. We are not bothered with gender constraints and do not believe in biological determinism. Rather than assuming that all men are inherently programmed to mistreat women, we believe that human interaction should be free from constraint. Private lives are the business of private individuals, not the state.
Where feminists are intolerant in their approach to disagreeable views, calling for the silencing of offensive speech or the banning of unpleasant aspects of life, humanists actively take on opposing political views. As humanists, we believe in unequivocal and uncompromising freedom of speech, and the free exchange of ideas between people, in order to reach a more progressive outcome.
It was refreshing for me to see women waking up. At least the ones who are intelligent enough. Though I don't think that changes any of their biological nature for sexual dynamics.
TLDR:A Woman calling themselves a humanist, instead of feminist is a matter of time. Atleast the ones that are willing to do their own thinking and is in touch with reality.
