Belinda Brown: Now the Scouts are to be transformed into a feminist front

 

http://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/belinda-brown-now-the-scouts-are-to-be-transformed-into-a-feminist-front/

The new leader of the Scouting Association is a woman Ann Limb. This would be fine if it was simply a case of the best man or woman for the job. Sadly it looks like an ideologically based choice.

Limb predictably wants to increase the number of girls in the Scouts. This is regardless of the fact that girls have their own organisation, Girlguiding, which makes no room for boys.

This would be fine if girls were in any way vulnerable, voiceless or excluded, as some guiding documents appear to suggest. But we know this is definitely not the case. Boys are disadvantaged all the way through the education system. This is not only about systematic teacher bias, I.e. discrimination, girls also outperform boys  in A levels and GCSEs. At all ages males are more likely to be unemployed particularly among 16-24 year olds. Boys spend less time than girls doing homework and more time trawling the internet and playing video games. They are twice as likely as girls to regard school as a waste of time, and while 1,515 boys of between 15-18 were in custody last time I looked, there were only 28 girls. It is boys, not girls, who constitute our disaffected, disenfranchised, socially excluded youth.

However, instead of setting out to give boys more confidence and responsibility, encouraging self-sufficiency and enhancing self-esteem,Limb seems intent on promoting and perpetuating the current anti-male ideology andextending it to include the youngest groups; “The position of young girls and women is such at the moment that unless young boys understand what its’s like to be a young woman then you won’t get them to change their behaviour”. Please Ms Limb could you tell us what aspect of boys’ behaviour is it that you would like to change? Many girls seem intent on blaming others and portraying themselves as victims. Perhaps you should focus your behaviour-changing programme here.  Our whole society reverberates with messages about what it is like to be a  young woman and many new policies and guidelines  are essentially feminist.  What it feels like to be a young boy or man, this is something we know absolutely nothing about.

In this  country the Guide and Scout movement has become  predominantly female (64 per cent) so it is perplexing why the needs of boys are not Limb’s priority.

However, when  you see what Girlguiding  has come to, it becomes clearer why girls themselves might be keen to colonise the Scouts. From a noble organisation whose central ideal was to “help others at all times” Girlguiding has become another arm of feminist propaganda, teaching young girls to focus on themselves.

“We give girls their own space”, “We give girls a voice”. “Modern guiding believes in empowering girls and young women to make the right choices for themselves and those around them”. This is how Girlguiding is branded today. Getting rid of page 3, promoting schemes such as Athena Swan, promoting women into leadership positions and  getting involved in gay pride. From encouraging girls to think for themselves and develop their own beliefs, promoting politically correct ideology is what Girlguiding is now all about.

Encouraging girls to join the Scouts is a short term way of increasing numbers. In the long term boys will be increasingly unlikely to want to join a feminised movement where they are expected to learn what it is like to be a young woman. Not only the Guides but also the Scouts will become another bastion for feminism.

Feminism infiltrates every corner of our society. There is Sports England  with “This Girl Can”, Athena Swan in academia and  numerous schemes to promote women in business.  There are traditional institutions such as the Scouts and the BBC and the endless  funding of politically correct feminist groups. A list of all the different and practical ways in which feminist ideology shapes our society is something we should perhaps compile.

Baden-Powell, who set up the Scouts and Guides movement, told us that the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. He also advised us to  “Try to leave this world a little better than you found it …”.

In our contemporary society there are many who sit on the fence with regard to feminism. But feminism is deeply damaging to the fabric of society, hurting families and communities and creating hostilities between women and men. In its relentless, covert, all-pervasive  and underhand way feminism is responsible for much unhappiness.

Listen to Baden-Powell and try to make the world a better place. Fence sitters get off your bottoms and jump off that feminism-neutral fence.

Feminist Tumblr: Human Train Wreck Offers Online ‘Support’ to ‘Survivors’

http://theothermccain.com/2015/06/07/feminist-tumblr-human-train-wreck-offers-online-support-to-survivors/

Maybe somebody should start a Tumblr blog called “Getting S**tfaced Drunk at College Parties Is Probably a Bad Idea,” because that’s the kind of advice Lilly at “Survivor Support” needed before she went to college. However, such advice is what we call “common sense,” and Lilly calls herself a feminist, so what’s the use? Feminists hate common sense.

Lilly is taking legal action against Pace University:

Pace University forced the victim of an alleged sexual assault into an investigation, found the alleged rapist not responsible without saying why, and then attempted to require both students to attend a program on alcohol and date rape, a complaint filed with the Education Department claims.
The student who filed the complaint, and who asked to remain anonymous due to the private nature of her experience, received word in July that the department’s Office for Civil Rights would look into her grievance. . . .
The Pace student said she had no intention of reporting the Feb. 14, 2014, incident, but did disclose it to a doctor at the New York university’s health center on Feb. 27 when she went to get tested for sexually transmitted infections. The doctor fetched another colleague, who agreed they needed to inform campus security, who would in turn have to start an investigation, the student said.
“I said I don’t want an investigation, don’t want the police involved at all, don’t want an in-school investigation, but they told me it had to happen,” the student said to The Huffington Post. “I did not want to report my rapist, because it is a very miserable and tedious process in which the victim rarely gets justice.” . . .
After Pace University staff talked to the student in an exam room for two hours — she didn’t feel she could leave — the student agreed to cooperate, figuring that if it had to happen, the investigation might as well be done right, according to the complaint. She submitted a written account of her version of events the following day, and the university issued a no-contact order between the two students involved. . . .
On March 31, Marijo Russell-O’Grady, Pace’s dean of students, told the reported victim and the accused assailant that the school was dropping the charges, according to a copy of the decision letter obtained by HuffPost. The reported victim said she never received an explanation why the school was finding him not responsible. Pace did determine that both students should be required to attend training on alcohol and substance abuse and on date rape.

 

The extra-judicial process for dealing with sexual assault cases involving college and university students is, on the one hand, required as a consequence of federal policy and yet is, on the other hand, a huge part of the problem that feminists have spent months protesting about, i.e., so-called “rape culture” on campus.

DON’T GET S**TFACED DRUNK AT COLLEGE PARTIES

Does that advice need a “Trigger Warning”? Perhaps it is traumatic to college girls who, despite solid GPAs in high school and high SAT scores, are nevertheless too stupid to understand why college guys want to get college girls drunk. Do I need to draw you a diagram, ladies? Whatever else is going on at these parties, sex is certainly near the top of the list of desired outcomes, so if you don’t want to have sex, don’t go to the party. However, if you choose to ignore that advice, and go to the party even though you don’t want to have sex, there are all kinds of common-sense strategies that smart girls use to avoid misfortune. On the other hand, if you’re a feminist, common sense doesn’t matter, and offering smart advice is “blaming the victim.” So . . . Trigger Warning!

Lilly’s Tumblr blog “Survivor Support” may not offer smart advice, but it does give us insight into what kind of hopeless idiots are being admitted to college nowadays. From Lilly’s “About Me” page:

 

 

My name is Lilly and I am 23 years old. I went to college at Susquehanna University for 2 years in nowheresville Pennsylvania. The school was not a good fit for me at all, because I really didn’t like the students or the location. In addition to the school not being a good fit, I was raped three times during my freshman year there.

 

(Raped three times during your freshman year? How does that happen? We’ll get to that part, but for now keep reading.)

 

 

I developed PTSD… and I abused alcohol. My therapist once asked me if I tried to kill myself with alcohol when I told her how much I could drink in a night. I also started self harming. . . .
During my sophomore year, on February 24th, 2012, my older brother died. He had been very ill for about 12 years. He overdosed. He was 26.
I decided to go back to school to finish up the semester after my brother’s death. It was really difficult. My PTSD was through the roof and I was mourning. I was also really suicidal and depressed. . . . I barely did manage to finish the semester. But I did.
Over the summer of 2012, I was hospitalized twice for my depression and suicidal ideation. I was in the hospital for 6 weeks, receiving ECT (shock treatment). I dropped out of college. I took a year off to recover.

 

 

(Shock treatment? Six weeks in a psych ward?)

 

 

I then transferred to a college in NYC called Pace University. I was having a very difficult time making friends and was very depressed the entire time I was there. I was raped again on Valentines Day, 2014. The school forced me into an investigation that I did not want. My anxiety, depression, PTSD was just awful. I wanted to drop out of school and not finish the semester. . . .
I decided to leave Pace after the semester ended. I am now at another small school in NYC. I study photography and sociology.
I am currently suing Pace University for the forced, botched, and very illegal investigation. My rapist graduated.
Pace University tried to silence me, but I refuse to be silenced. . . .
I am also a very outspoken feminist. I am very liberal. And very political.
I currently suffer from major atypical depression, chronic suicidal thoughts, general anxiety disorder, complex PTSD, and complicated grief. . . .
And I fear men. I actually believe that I am more gay than I used to be. I was bi-leaning-straight, but now I’m bi-leaning-gay. At this point in my life, I cannot handle college. I fear college. So I am taking time off once again.
I am a survivor of harassment, abuse, assault, and rape. I created this blog to help create some form of a community. I wanted to prove to you that you are not alone.

 

In other words, “You think your life sucks? Ha!” However crazy you may be, Lilly’s much crazier. So there’s that.

Lilly has a page called “My Stories,” but instead of putting the stories in text form, she has uploaded them as images, and I’ll save you time by summarizing these stories briefly.

  • LILLY’S STORY NUMBER ONE — Her childhood sucked. When she was 8 years old, her brother developed a serious illness, which was very stressful on her family. Her mother and father fought a lot, sometimes violently, and her father had an affair with a former college girlfriend.
  • LILLY’S STORY NUMBER TWO — Her adolescence sucked. She fell in love with Sam in sixth grade, but he rejected her. She contemplated suicide. Beginning in her freshman year of high school, Lilly was “involved with other boys, and girls,” but by senior year, she renewed her romance with Sam. She “almost lost [her] virginity” to Sam, but meanwhile, she found out Sam was “hooking up” with her friend Steven, as well as “seeing other girls.” She “kept asking him if he was gay.” Much drama ensued.
  • LILLY’S STORY NUMBER THREE — Her freshman year at Susquehanna sucked. At the start, she met a guy named Brian. They hung out and “fooled around,” but Brian “had a girlfriend . . . and refused to have sex with me, even though I wanted to lose my virginity to him.” So then she started dating Larry, even though Larry “wasn’t really [her] type.” One Friday night in November, she went to a party: “I wanted to get drunk.” Larry was at the party with another girl. After she “had about 4 drinks,” Lilly started dancing with “a tall skinny black guy” named Jeremiah who “was very drunk.” They started kissing, because Lilly “wanted to make Larry jealous.” She told Jeremiah she “was a virgin” and “did not want to have sex that night.” However, they went to Jeremiah’s place, where he took off her pants and digitally penetrated her. “I was fine with this,” Lilly said, “but then all of a sudden” he inserted his penis into her vagina. Sexual intercourse was very painful. Jeremiah kept trying to contact Lilly afterwards, but she was not interested.
  • LILLY’S STORY NUMBER FOUR — She was drunk at a frat party and danced with a drunk guy who groped her.
  • LILLY’S STORY NUMBER FIVE — At a party, she got “completely wasted” from vodka and “jungle juice” and was dancing with a bunch of guys. She dry-humped a “nice boy” on the couch “in front of everybody.” After the party, Lilly and her friends went “back to the dorms to smoke weed.” She had a very unpleasant sexual experience with a “random guy” named Eric. It was so bad she “actually had to ice my vagina for three days.” Months later, Lilly decided that what happened with Eric was actually rape.
  • LILLY’S STORY NUMBER SIX — This is the Pace University rape story. On the night of Feb. 14, 2014, Lilly drank “the majority of a bottle of rum, roughly about 8 vodka shots, a cosmo on the rocks, and a few cups of white wine.” She was with a guy named Rainer, and they “kissed on and off during the night.” She was “heavily intoxicated” and her memory is “foggy,” but she ended up in the dorm bathroom, where Rainer expected her to perform oral sex on him. She complied, but it wasn’t very good for either of them. At a later point, she blacked out and “the rape happened sometime before 3:30 AM on the 15th.” Lilly woke up with “vaginal pain and a a hickey on [her] right breast.”

What can we say of this tale of endless woe? Are these guys — Jeremiah, Eric and Rainer — all equally guilty of rape?

No, none of them are guilty of anything, because you can’t convict somebody of rape merely on the basis of what a drunk girl said happened while she was “completely wasted” or “heavily intoxicated.” If you asked Jeremiah, Eric and Rainer, each would have his own story of innocence to tell and so, without any other evidence, not guilty. Case dismissed.

When drunk college girls and drunk college boys get together, situations like this inevitably occur. What are you going to do? Do we expect that Eric — who saw Lilly dry-humping a guy on the sofa in front of everybody at a party — is going to treat Lilly with courtesy and respect? Shouldn’t we point out also that (a) college freshmen are underage for drinking and (b) they were also illegally using marijuana? “Hey, let’s completely rearrange the world to make it safe for drunk teenage dopeheads,” said no sane person ever.

Let the feminists call me a slut-shamer and a victim-blamer for asking, but does Lilly bear no responsibility at all?

Think about what Lilly says happened with Jeremiah. She seems to have been rather desperate to lose her virginity. She nearly got her high-school crush Sam to do the honors, but no luck there. Then she went to college and wanted Brian to deflower her, but he turned her down. She was willing to settle for Larry, but he showed up at the party with another girl, so Lilly danced with Jeremiah, then went back to his place where she took off her pants and was willing to have Jeremiah do everything to her exceptvaginal intercourse. Lilly was drunk and naked with a stranger — she had never met Jeremiah before that night — and anybody with ordinary common sense would say that this was a very bad decision.

Ordinary common sense seems to be quite rare on college campuses nowadays, however, and you’ll be called a “rape apologist” if you warn teenage college girls against very bad decisions.

DON’T GET S**TFACED DRUNK AT COLLEGE PARTIES

And since Lilly raises the issue of her sexuality — formerly “bi-leaning-straight, but now . . . bi-leaning-gay” — can we be honest and say she is just lonely, confused and pathetic?

Look, you don’t need a “sexuality.” You need love.

You don’t need an unrealistic crush on a guy who doesn’t reciprocate your feelings. You need to have some sense of your own human dignity. You need to get your act together, and stop being so emotionally needy that you’re willing to do anything just to have a guy (or girl) pay attention to you. In short, you need to grow the hell up and at least attempt to conduct yourself like a responsible adult.

Feminist Tumblr is never going to give you that kind of advice, and that’s a huge problem. It seems that young people believe that the only place to get advice is from their peers, including basket cases like Lilly at “Survivor Support.” Never listen to successful grown-ups! Listen to Feminist Tumblr! Because feminists on Tumblr know everything!

Follow their directions closely, kids. Because the one thing feminists on Tumblr know best is the shortest route to Hell.

UPDATE: A predictable reaction:

‘We Need to Get Him Off the Internet’

Feminism tells them that they are never responsible for anything. Therefore, feminists require a scapegoat to shoulder the blame. And what the heck, why not me? Let them screech all they want at me.

 

 

Men ‘Calling Yourself Feminist Is Invading a Movement That Was Not Made for You’

http://theothermccain.com/2015/06/04/men-calling-yourself-feminist-is-invading-a-movement-that-was-not-made-for-you/

Feminist Tumblr makes explicit the movement’s anti-male ideology:

Feminism as a movement is not about prioritizing the feelings of cis men as above or equal to our own. You are welcome to be an ally for us. But calling yourself feminist is invading a movement that was not made for you and in which your voice is not necessary and often not wanted. It is male privilege to think you are entitled to join and gain a title in any club, group or movement you want. I’ve noticed that cis men who insist on being called “feminists” rather than “feminist allies” put their own feelings and need for legitimacy/validation above the actual goals and priorities of feminism. Feminist can be used as an adjective/descriptive term for men, like “I met a guy who seemed very feminist.” Or “He has some strong feminist beliefs”. A man could say “I believe in feminism”. But to adopt the title of feminist is appropriation of a movement that has been built on and by the suffering of women and other people who experience gender-based oppression. Basically, if a man says he’s a feminist and, when asked by us to call himself a “feminist ally” instead, he refuses, he proves that he doesn’t actually care about women or our needs and feelings, and he has no right to be involved in feminism in any way.

Feminism means: Men have no rights. Period.

“Feminism is a totalitarian doctrine of hatred. It cannot be reformed, nor can it be appeased. Feminism is an ideology that demands war against human nature, and the question is whether we can stop this deadly menace before it destroys our civilization.”
— Robert Stacy McCain, April 13

 

Radical equality requires the negation of liberty, because only the oppressed have rights, and their oppressors have none. The feminist worldview requires that any apparent inequality between males and females must be condemned as injustice. All men are members of the oppressor class, benefiting from and participating in the victimization of women (all women) under a system of male supremacy. To speak of men’s “rights,” according to feminist ideology, is to justify inequality, and to assert that women deserve to be treated as inferior.

This is feminism’s formula for insanity, a totalitarian theory that denies the reality of sexual difference and seeks evidence of patriarchal oppression in every individual decision (because “the personal is political”). Once this principle of Feminist Consciousness is grasped, we see why The First Rule of Feminism is SHUT UP!

“Feminist consciousness is consciousness of victimization . . . to come to see oneself as a victim.”
— Sandra Lee BartkyFemininity and Domination: Studies in the Phenomenology of Oppression (1990)

Feminism means men have nothing to say, because men have no valid knowledge. Whatever a man believes is wrong, whatever a man does is oppressive, and anything a man says is sexist. Therefore, SHUT UP!

It is especially important that feminists should be empowered to insult men, and to ridicule men who resent such insults:

Some feminist on the internet: Haha white boys are gross, it’s funny how they think they can dance or their opinions matter lol
No white guy ever: See this is okay because she has a right to express herself under free speech. Plus if I can’t laugh at myself, who CAN I laugh at? Also I’m sure she was just kidding and doesn’t really believe that, I should give her the benefit of the doubt.

 

You see how her chip-on-the-shoulder resentments are expressed as an ostentatiously “clever” reversal: Feminists are accused of being over-sensitive and humorless, and so therefore — har-de-har-har — the joke is on you, “white guy,” whom she accuses of being too stupid to “get” her cleverness, so that you don’t even know whether she’s “just kidding” or whether she “really believes” the hateful things she says about you.

You know who excels at this kind of manipulation, smokescreening, gaslighting and psychological projection? Narcissistic sociopaths.

“Misandry Mermaid,” as she calls herself, is a warped and sadistic personality who derives perverse pleasure from imagining the humiliation and mental pain she endeavors to inflict on males. Mendeserve this humiliation, the feminist believes, because men are her inferiors and have unjustly refused to recognize her superiority. The man who refuses to kneel before her in worshipful adoration has deprived her of what is rightly hers, and the man who dares speak in his own defense thereby proves himself a misogynist, by justifying his existence, which oppresses her. Any cruelty the feminist inflicts on a man is social justice, and he cannot be permitted to say a word in reply.

“Forever Bathing in Your Male Tears,” you see.

Most people cannot understand Feminist Logic™ because it is so difficult to imagine hating anyone as much as feminists hate men.
