RS McCain Mass­a­chu­setts Democ­rats for Brown Jan 18th 2010

If you are a reg­u­lar reader of The Other McCain you know that Stacy McCain has been given lately to long essays cri­tiquing fem­i­nism and one of his pri­mary antag­o­nists is Fem­Freq namely Anita Sar­keesian who was instru­men­tal is hav­ing hi banned from Twit­ter for the ulti­mate crime of cri­tiquing her & quot­ing fem­i­nists in context.

This week­end he wrote another essay titled The Queer­ing of Fem­i­nism and the Silenc­ing of Het­ero­sex­ual Masculinity

When I say that Fem­i­nism Is a Total­i­tar­ian Move­ment to Destroy Civ­i­liza­tion as We Know It, some read­ers may sup­pose that this is merely hyper­bole, just as some read­ers may sup­pose that the sources I quote are “extreme” exam­ples of an obscure “fringe” fem­i­nism. Yet any­one who cares to inves­ti­gate fur­ther will dis­cover that, how­ever “rad­i­cal” this anti-​male/​anti-​heterosexual ide­ol­ogy may have been in an ear­lier era, it has now become so main­stream within aca­d­e­mic fem­i­nism that no other per­spec­tive on human sex­ual behav­ior is ever expressed by the fac­ulty in uni­ver­sity depart­ments of Women’s Studies.

and he pro­duces the actual word of the actual “giants” of fem­i­nism to back it up

It was Mary Daly who cel­e­brated the fem­i­nist move­ment as “the Sec­ond Com­ing of female pres­ence not only as Antichrist but also as Antichurch,” as a “ris­ing woman-​consciousness” to destroy the “Chris­to­cen­tric cos­mos.” Mary Daly was an influ­en­tial pro­fes­sor, so if she declared fem­i­nism to be the Antichrist, who am I to disagree?

The Rad­i­cal The­ol­ogy of Fem­i­nism pro­duces such demon-​possessed crea­tures as a men­tally dis­abled Scor­pio occultist les­bian, and the same satanic phi­los­o­phy also pro­duces despi­ca­ble liars like Anita Sarkeesian.

An hon­est enemy is less to be feared than a false friend, which is why I can at least respect Pro­fes­sor Sheila Jef­freys, who has never attempted to con­ceal her all-​encompassing hatred of men, whereas dis­hon­est fem­i­nists like Anita Sar­keesian pre­tend that they are vic­tims of harass­ment, mis­un­der­stood and mis­rep­re­sented by “misogynists.”

These are all excel­lent points and advance his argu­ment in a pow­er­ful way but the ques­tion becomes Why is he able to make such pow­er­ful and effec­tive argu­ment that draw the wrath and fear of Twit­ter Safety coun­cil and Ani­tia Sar­keesan. The answer is con­tained the piece also explains why he is such an effec­tive reporter (empha­sis mine):

OK, do you sup­pose the aver­age guy who spends a lot of time play­ing videogames is going to write a per­sua­sive essay rebut­ting Sar­keesian? It’s absurd to expect such a thing. You don’t learn to write per­sua­sive essays by log­ging end­less hours play­ing League of Leg­ends. Well, do we expect these gamers to do what I’ve done, spend upwards of $1,500 acquir­ing dozens of books of fem­i­nist the­ory and his­tory, then spend hun­dreds of hours read­ing these books in order to develop an informed crit­i­cal analy­sis of fem­i­nist ide­ol­ogy and rhetoric? Of course not.

There is some value to being able to react to an action or a quip, and to pro­duce an effec­tive one liner on twit­ter and in a cul­ture that moves so quickly and has the atten­tion span of a mayfly one might make an impres­sion if said quip man­aged to go viral

But that can’t com­pare to actual knowl­edge acquired at the expense of per­sonal wealth that has to be earned and expend­ing time which can not be reac­quired once spent.

It was he who actu­ally trav­eled to Ken­tucky to inves­ti­gage the Bill Spark­man case while the left was cry­ing “Send the body to Glenn Beck” from afar, It was he who spent a week on the ground fol­low­ing both Scott Brown and Martha Coak­ley at a time when the rest of the nation didn’t see an upset com­ing. It was he who in 2010 while the media was still in denial vis­ited dis­tricts in New York and Penn­syl­va­nia cov­er­ing future mem­bers of con­gress that the MSM had writ­ten off and it was he who in all of those cases was justified

That’s why he has been a tar­get in the past for peo­ple like Rauhauser and Kim­ber­lin and it’s also way peo­ple like the Twit­ter Safety coun­cil and Ani­tia Sar­keesan and their fem­i­nist allies are will­ing to con­tinue to take the hit from his ban­ning, because the is noth­ing more dan­ger­ous to the fem­i­nist meme than a per­son who is actu­ally informed of it with 80K fol­low­ers who might influ­ence others.

And that’s why I spend so much time link­ing and quot­ing him and why you should spend your time read­ing him and lis­ten­ing to the five most impor­tant words in the Eng­lish Language

hit the freakin tip jar!

RS McCain Massachusetts Democrats for Brown Jan 18th 2010

If you are a regular reader of The Other McCain you know that Stacy McCain has been given lately to long essays critiquing feminism and one of his primary antagonists is FemFreq namely Anita Sarkeesian who was instrumental is having hi banned from Twitter for the ultimate crime of critiquing her & quoting feminists in context.

This weekend he wrote another essay titled The Queering of Feminism and the Silencing of Heterosexual Masculinity

When I say that Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, some readers may suppose that this is merely hyperbole, just as some readers may suppose that the sources I quote are “extreme” examples of an obscure “fringe” feminism. Yet anyone who cares to investigate further will discover that, however “radical” this anti-male/anti-heterosexual ideology may have been in an earlier era, it has now become so mainstream within academic feminism that no other perspective on human sexual behavior is ever expressed by the faculty in university departments of Women’s Studies.

and he produces the actual word of the actual “giants” of feminism to back it up

It was Mary Daly who celebrated the feminist movement as “the Second Coming of female presence not only as Antichrist but also as Antichurch,” as a “rising woman-consciousness” to destroy the “Christocentric cosmos.” Mary Daly was an influential professor, so if she declared feminism to be the Antichrist, who am I to disagree?

The Radical Theology of Feminism produces such demon-possessed creatures as a mentally disabled Scorpio occultist lesbian, and the same satanic philosophy also produces despicable liars like Anita Sarkeesian.

An honest enemy is less to be feared than a false friend, which is why I can at least respect Professor Sheila Jeffreys, who has never attempted to conceal her all-encompassing hatred of men, whereas dishonest feminists like Anita Sarkeesian pretend that they are victims of harassment, misunderstood and misrepresented by “misogynists.”

These are all excellent points and advance his argument in a powerful way but the question becomes Why is he able to make such powerful and effective argument that draw the wrath and fear of Twitter Safety council and Anitia Sarkeesan.  The answer is contained the piece also explains why he is such an effective reporter (emphasis mine):

OK, do you suppose the average guy who spends a lot of time playing videogames is going to write a persuasive essay rebutting Sarkeesian? It’s absurd to expect such a thing. You don’t learn to write persuasive essays by logging endless hours playing League of Legends. Well, do we expect these gamers to do what I’ve done, spend upwards of $1,500 acquiring dozens of books of feminist theory and history, then spend hundreds of hours reading these books in order to develop an informed critical analysis of feminist ideology and rhetoric? Of course not.

There is some value to being able to react to an action or a quip, and to produce an effective one liner on twitter and in a culture that moves so quickly and has the attention span of a mayfly one might make an impression if said quip managed to go viral

But that can’t compare to actual knowledge acquired at the expense of personal wealth that has to be earned and expending time which can not be reacquired once spent.

It was he who actually traveled to Kentucky to investigage the Bill Sparkman case while the left was crying “Send the body to Glenn Beck” from afar, It was he who spent a week on the ground following both Scott Brown and Martha Coakley at a time when the rest of the nation didn’t see an upset coming.  It was he who in 2010 while the media was still in denial visited districts in New York and Pennsylvania covering future members of congress that the MSM had written off and it was he who in all of those cases was justified

That’s why he has been a target in the past for people like Rauhauser and Kimberlin and it’s also way people like the Twitter Safety council and Anitia Sarkeesan and their feminist allies are willing to continue to take the hit from his banning, because the is nothing more dangerous to the feminist meme than a person who is actually informed of it with 80K followers who might influence others.

And that’s why I spend so much time linking and quoting him and why you should spend your time reading him and listening to the five most important words in the English Language

hit the freakin tip jar!
