“I’m not a feminist” : What Kara McCullough taught me to say proudly.

For a working-class girl, who’s studying and working at the same time, let me be honest about something that I always wanted to declare: “I am not a feminist.” That F word has been captured by the intersectional postmodern left, given a complete makeover, and is now heading the realm of an authoritarian and fascistic campaign while proclaiming to be an emancipatory reform movement. This once truly and proudly progressive word helped women win some of the biggest battles, including fairness and free speech, among many others. Now the neo-feminist establishment is tarnishing the work of our foresisters, destroying the foundations of what was being built to create a world that man and woman can live side by side in total fairness, while dividing the movement further in race and completely manufactured gendered terms.

The latest victim to be attacked by this aggressive and mephitic army, just because they simple don’t agree with the extremism and bigotry these people are preaching? Our very intelligent, sexy heroine Miss USA Kara McCullough.

For the uninitiated, McCullough works as an emergency preparedness specialist in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response after earning her Bachelor’s degree in chemistry; at the age of 25 years old she just won Miss USA, and has been inducted in the National Society of Black Engineers and the Golden Key International Honor Society. Not only is she incredibly intelligent, she is also fiercely independent. Standing in front of the world, in one of the biggest competitions of her life, being judged on the kind of person you are, she decided to not sugar coat her opinions on equality and feminism, saying the brave words I started this article with: “I am not a feminist.”

The internet obviously lit up instantly, with sisterhood trolls gathering together to coerce and attack the tenacious scientist. Blasphemy, heresy, stupidity… I read it all on our illustrious Twitter hashtags (we all know how much I adore hashtags) none truly informing us curious audience, as to why not being a “man-hating” feminist is a bad thing.

This isn’t unique. Recently in the West, the postmodern liberal left seems to have some curious ideas as to what constitutes as real problems for women in the real world.

Body Positivity is killing women: A Followup

1My previous post on how Body Positivity is killing women, went viral, thanks to Areo Magazine kindly republishing it.

It also raised some follow up question, and snarky comments, which needs to be followed through.

In the wake of the University of Birmingham’s extensive study, which states that people with a high BMI are at greater risk of developing either coronary heart disease, a stroke, heart failure or peripheral vascular disease (PVD) compared to healthy, normal BMI numbered people, now it’s time to finally admit the obvious, that being obese WILL cause health problems, and it is time to stop sugar coating the truth and start yelling from the roof tops the reality if one actually wants to start saving lives.

Body Positivity is Killing Women

What do the hashtags #IWontCompromise, #EffYourBeautyStandards, #DareToWear, #AndIGetDressed have in common? They are all ultra-intersectional feminist, “body positive” and accumulated over 700,000+ tags and counting on Instagram. Oh, and they are also killing women. Allow me to explain.

No matter how many ludicrous comments saturate pictures of these body positive heroines, obesity is still a massive (no pun) issue within the health system. £25,000 is being spent a minute within the NHS on diabetes alone. In total, an estimated £14 billion pounds is spent a year on treating diabetes and its complications, with the cost of treating complications representing the much higher cost. That number is just scratching the surface, with heart disease, high blood pressure and a copious amount of other obesity related chronic illnesses that is crushing health systems across the western world.

When the inevitable happens, and the obese patient is told that it is now a matter of life and death, the NHS seems to be freely handing out bypass surgeries at the cost of a tidy estimation of £32 million. Yikes. How many nurses would that pay for? How many beds would cater for generally ill people? Imagine how well equipped cancer wards could be with that nice little bonus?

#NoNotAllMen: Most Men Are Not Sexual Assault Proponents Like Trump

This week a video of Donald Trump bragging in 2005 about “grabbing women by the pussy” was released, causing a horde of Republicans to stampede from his sinking ship campaign.

In defense, Trump and his backers have sided with extreme feminists. What Trump said at age 59 about sexually assaulting women and committing adultery is just normal “locker room talk” amongst guys. There’s nothing to see here. All men brag about violating women against their will.

If you are paying attention, you will note that accusing all men of engaging in sexual assault and serial adultery is demeaning to men.

And yet… This is exactly the argument that the supposed opponents of political correctness at Fox News and on the Trump campaign are making.

I have noticed before that Trump isn’t defeating political correctness but rather legitimizing all the claims the PC left makes.

As I wrote at The Federalist:

Social justice warriors paint a dismal picture of American society. They say America is inexcusably racist, sexist, “Islamophobic,” homophobic, and guilty of a laundry list of other -isms and newly named offenses. In July 2015, when feminist blogger Kiran Gandhi ran a marathon without a tampon while on her period to protest “period shaming,” I didn’t even know “period shaming” was a thing. Who, of influence, has ever shamed women for having a natural occurrence take place?, I thought.

I found out a few weeks later, when, after the first Republican debate, the man who would become the presumptive Republican nominee appeared to shame moderator Megyn Kelly for just that. “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever,” Donald Trump said, as he tried to dispute the allegation that he had expressed misogynistic views. Just like that, what once appeared to be a manufactured boogeyman became a real thing, and feminist SJWs had an actual example they could point to of what they oppose.

Also notable is how the right-wing populists make such explicit use of identity politics. As I wrote, “Only Difference Between SJWs And Alt-Righters Is Which Identities They Hate”:

The interesting thing about many of Breitbart’s headlines isn’t just the casual bigotry and insanity but the obsession with identity politics present in such articles as “Straight People Have Ruined Gay Rights,” which argued for straights to be banned from gay spaces. Nothing would need to change for those words to be published nearly verbatim at Salon.

Other articles would look just like Salon if only a few words were changed. “Why Equality and Diversity Departments Should Only Hire Rich, Straight White Men,” would just need to change the identity words to SJW-preferred groups. Another Breitbart writer was outraged about “How Feminist Propaganda is Destroying Men’s Lives,” just the kind of article Salon publishes when the topic is “rape culture” and the lives in question are female.

So Trump is politically correct in his own right-wing way. Beyond that, he’s also wrong that all or even most men are serial adulterers and sexual assaulters.

Was Brock Turner a victim?

Ever since Brock Turner, a then-swimmer at Stanford University, was accused and convicted of the sexual assault and attempted rape of a woman at a Stanford University party and sentenced to six months in prison, the case has been one of the most discussed sexual assault cases in the U.S., inciting debates about rape, feminism, class privilege, and mandatory minimum sentences.

Now that Turner has been released from jail on September 2, after three months, these questions are being debated again. Feminists and black liberal activists think his sentence was too short because of bias in favor of his gender and race. Anti-feminists and MRAs think his sentence was too long. Some even think he was unjustly railroaded. Was Brock Turner a victim of a campus rape hysteria wherein he was accused of rape after having consensual sex?

The argument hinges of Turner’s version of events

#InternationalMensDay activists take up feminist tactics in the name of men

Feminists and anti-feminists seem to have a kind of war going online if you pay attention to Twitter. Feminists say women are being victimized by a patriarchy. Anti-feminists mock feminists for thinking all of their problems are caused by “the patriarchy.” And back and forth and so forth.

But today is #InternationalMensDay, and if you search the hashtag, you can see that not all anti-feminist activists are really so. Indeed, many anti-feminists and MRAs are just feminists in pants. Or, feminists without boobs, to borrow a term from noted video games feminist Anita Sarkeesian.

They are using the same tactics and the same victimization tropes as the kinds of feminists they deplore. They post a social problem and then try to turn it into a gender-related problem. They take a facts and statistics out of context, presenting them in a one-sided way. They apply stereotypes to an entire gender and ignore that many of the problems individual men face are caused by individual factors that can be solved as individuals.
