This is what happens when mental illness is rationalized as a political philosophy. Anyone who has read the Unabomber manifesto knows what I'm talking about. Intelligence and sanity are not mutually inclusive.
Women are not victims. Women are not oppressed. The equality that pseudo-feminists claim to want has existed in the US for decades now, and men couldn't be happier. The world presented in shows like Mad Men seems like such a bizarre anachronism because it is. The only thing stopping a woman from achieving anything she desires is herself. No man is standing in her way. No men want to stand in her way. Why would we? We're too busy doing our own thing, pursuing our own happiness, and living our own lives. Lives that don't revolve around women.
I'm especially disgusted at her suggestion that self-proclaimed feminists have worked so hard to free women living under islamofascist rule in Muslim nations. They threw those women under the bus long ago. Why? Because they are Gramscian marxists pretending to be advocates for women. They threw American women under the bus to protect Bill Clinton in the 90's and Muslim women under the bus to demonize George W. Bush soon after that. They've lost all credibility with anyone who is paying the least bit of attention. It is one thing to be honest, but wrong. These people are despicable liars.
I'm sick and tired of encountering people who are my equals and having them tell me how oppressed they are when they enjoy all the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities that I do, only they fail to take advantage of them. I have no sympathy.
I do my very best to avoid such people. Crazy people make me very uncomfortable, in no small part because it is difficult to communicate with them. You say one thing and they hear another (or maliciously misinterpret your words to that effect) and you spend all your time just trying to find a way to get a message across without it being garbled by their own delusions and dishonesty. So I just avoid them as there is no point.
One of the posters to the blog above had this to say:
Be more understanding people. This is the closest SkepChick has come to being a victim of anything or anyone in her entire life, a life predicated around her sense of victimhood.
I couldn't agree more.
