That isn’t pubic hair. It’s a big ball of spiders.

That wasn't pubic hair. That was the mothership.

Meanwhile, the war against male violence rages, you rapists you.

David

Craig,

Meanwhile, the war against male violence rages, you rapists you.

I see rad-feminist theorising – or rather, bald assertion - is as credible as ever. I can’t wait for the wives and girlfriends of the world to realise that their feelings of love for their male partners, feelings of which presumably they have some intimate first-hand knowledge, are merely a “trauma-bond” or “fear,” a “chemical response to violence and oppression.” Because an unhappy feminist said so.

And I can’t help wondering why someone would devote so much time and effort to pathologising heterosexual coupling – all of it, everywhere - especially in such a dogmatic and clownish way. Though I suppose it’s worth remembering that claims of ‘false consciousness’ in everyone else, of which the above is yet another variation, tend to flatter the speaker. Which I’m sure is entirely coincidental.

Thank you for the pointers on baby-names, David. Just a few days too late, but the effort was appreciated. Regards from little Anton and us here in gray and soggy Norway.

David

Simen,

Just a few days too late, but the effort was appreciated.

Congratulations. Maybe the next boy can be named Trissstyn or Krystougher. And for a girl, there’s always Beautiful Existence.

No?

"Though I suppose it’s worth remembering that claims of ‘false consciousness’ in everyone else, of which the above is yet another variation, tend to flatter the speaker. Which I’m sure is entirely coincidental."

David, what need they of flattery, when they have "women’s super sensory powers"!

David

Craig,

what need they of flattery, when they have “women’s super sensory powers”!

Oh my. See, now I have no idea whether it’s all an incredibly elaborate parody devised by a satirical monomaniac. The earliest posts, from May last year, are simply deranged. What with the “truth” that “all men are criminals (rapists, impregnators, thieves, other)” and the “truth” that “all men… want to destroy all life on Earth.” From there on, it gets a little odd. But then, Margaret Jamison and her gal pals were quite real - and unhinged in a remarkably similar way. Unhinged by the book. Maybe the lady in question really is at the station two stops after Amanda Marcotte and Laurie Penny.

As I’ve said before, identity politics is very bad for probity and analytical thought. Its effect on a person’s thinking is rather like that of crystal meth on teeth. Prolonged exposure leads to dogmatism, unrealism and a kind of competitive callousness. See, for example, the lovely Amanda Marcotte and her friends on the subject of abortion. At some point it becomes impossible to distinguish this urge to be dogmatic, intolerant and indifferent to reality, to say nothing of being vindictive and perpetually aggrieved, from a serious mental health issue.

Witchwind says she and her female ilk, have super sensory powers that men can only approximate after becoming intoxicated on drugs. I don't find that difficult to believe. After two pints every man gains superior knowledge. After three they know exactly what England needs to do to win the next world cup....

Looks different the next morning. Imagine if you never sobered up.

sk60

and the “truth” that “all men… want to destroy all life on Earth.”

She's on to us. Summon the Patriarchy.

The sad rad-feminist ravings also caught the eye of Jeff at Protein Wisdom. As he says, “somewhere there’s an attic missing its madwoman.”

tempdog

"I make friends with women, I introduce them to feminism, I’m full of hope ... but ...because i’m too far ahead.... She won’t share with me the same desperate need to talk about feminism, blame men and value feminist discussions"

Because "she" is "colonised", see. But our narrator is perfectly free from indoctrination and is so far ahead of the rest of us.

dicentra

she and her female ilk have super sensory powers

Huh.

It would appear that when God[dess] was passing out those super-sensory powers, I was getting my third or fourth helping of the compulsion to Pin Things.

Craig Mc - I know it's unkind to mock the afflicted, but thank you for that link, I haven't had such a hearty laugh in ages.

"I know as a matter of fact that some women do have the capacity to communicate with plants and trees and living beings in different ways, they ask the plant what kind of healing powers she has and the plant may reply, if she wants to."

Imagine a cackle of feminists squatting around a rhododendron bush, not needing to commune with the shrubbery via the fibre optic penis-tendrils in James Cameron's laughable heteropatriarchal fantasy "Avatar", but instead using the uncanny power of their super sensory feminist psychic powers - sort of like Peter Parker's Spidey Sense, but with Daddy issues.

"Tell us how to heal ourselves, O leafy hymenanthes! In the name of the Goddess we beseech you!", chant the feminists.

"Gooooo awwwaaaayyyyyyyy....." pleads the perspicacious plant.

Apart from the blethering with bushes I'm concerned there is a slight air of unreality in Ms Witchwind's writings. Here's her thoughts on what would happen if that happy day arrives when all men die off:

"we wouldn’t need to work to survive, nor would we need feminism as a means of survival because men wouldn’t exist, our world would be purely female and gynocentric and naturally female-bonding. We’d BE there, there is no getting to feminism because we’d be it. We would just do we what we enjoy and do it so long as it brings us joy. No activities save those related to eating and shelter would have to be finished because finishing isn’t the point. We can just let time flow and obey to our bodily needs without guilt, too. Sleep when we’re tired, eat when we’re hungry, walk or swim or play when we’re in need for moving."

Now, if you think half the population dying off, including most of the engineers, surgeons, farmers, fishermen, binmen, and so forth might be a bad thing for the survivors from the point of view of quality of life (and quite apart from the trauma of all women losing their sons, husbands, fathers, and so on) don't worry!

"We wouldn’t have to worry about our needs because everything around us would be in abundance, there would be no scarcity."

I see. Perhaps she plans on talking the plants into dropping fruit and vegetables, or something?

"We wouldn’t ever have to depend on technology to communicate, it wouldn’t even cross our minds to use such mean and drug-like communication forms."

Mean and drug-like communication forms like... err... internet blogs. Presumably to be replaced in the 1000 year feminist Reich by psychic super-sensory powers.

"We would live in beautiful houses that we would have built ourselves in ways that fit our natural surroundings and ourselves."

But they wouldn't need to work. And the construction materials for these beautiful houses would just be lying around, in abundance. Along with the JCB's, diesel fuel, and trained builders I suppose.

"We would be in constant contact with the earth, the trees, the skies, wind and water or sea, there wouldn’t be this numbing sensory deprivation we experience every day."

The earth, the trees, the skies, wind, water, and sea are fortunate there's so much numbing sensory deprivation going around.

"But perhaps one shortcut to radical feminism or freedom is just being with women and with the elements and enjoying our connection to each other, where men don’t exist in the past, present or future of this moment or even in the idea of the “after” this moment, absent in every form – especially in thought."

The feminists need lebensraum.

Here's her advice on what men should do (apologies for the vulgarity of her language):


1. Stop sticking your dicks in women. This is rape. This is torture.
2. Stop sticking your dicks in women. NOW. For EVER!!!! Ever ever. Like, don’t ever put your dick in a woman or a girl again.
3. The above is the utmost, absolute MINIMUM men can do to help women. This does not even count men’s infinite every-day torture that surrounds rape and impregnation of women by men that they should stop too. A man who sticks his dick in girls and women is a rapist (and scum). He is not helping women.
4. Give back to women what you, and men in general, have stolen from women:
5. Women need Land. Give land back to women.
6. Women need money. Give money back to women.
7. Women need houses and rooms of our own. Give houses back to women.
8. Women need resources (food, water, equipment of all sorts…). Give resources back to women.
9. Women need time. Clean your own shit.
10. Reminder: stop using your dick against women, stay away from feminism, and refuse any credit for your what you give back to women. For a thief is not to be thanked for handing back what he stole.

Parts 5 through 8 sound a lot like my first divorce.

Here's what women should do in response to the above:

Does he do any of the above, discreetly, without taking any credit for it, and making sure it goes to the right hands? Take it and don’t look back! Don’t feel grateful! It is impossible to steal anything from a man.

At this point you could be forgiven for thinking feminists are a wee bit unpleasant. Unfortunately men are much worse!

No man has any sense of justice, ethics or morality whatsoever. Everything men do is unjust and at the expense of women, girls, animals and the earth.

I was thinking this myself just the other day, while I was listening to Robin Thicke on the radio and eating a sandwich made of live female kittens. Are we the bad guys?

Craig Mc

Nice work there Steve. Rapist.

Patrick Brown

Parts 5 through 8 sound like the traditional male gender role. Bring home the bacon. Go out, acquire resources, and give them to me. The only things that's not Victorian is "don't expect anything in return".

David

We would be in constant contact with the earth, the trees, the skies, wind and water or sea, there wouldn’t be this numbing sensory deprivation we experience every day.

You’ve got to love just how readily some people will assign their own feelings (or pretend feelings) to everyone else. They go from “I feel unhappy and befuddled; I’m an emotional wreck” to “everyone else must therefore be unhappy, befuddled and an emotional wreck.” Why so is never said, for obvious reasons. But the arrogance is breath-taking. It’s megalomaniacal.

Needless to say, this assumption is the basis of quite a few Guardian articles, which announce that “we” are this, that and the other, and it’s all the fault of capitalism or celebrity tattle magazines. One of my favourites was when George Monbiot claimed that “we” should be more like the peasants of Southern Ethiopia, who “smile more often” than we do and whose fields “crackle with laughter.” Yes, these noble, laughing peasants may live in homes constructed from leaves and packing cases, and they may have Stone Age sanitation and alarming child mortality, but at least they’re not being “isolated” by sinful material trappings. Like dentistry, double glazing and TV remote controls. You see, “wealth causes misery” and is therefore bad for “us” – by which of course he means, bad for you. And George, being heroic, wants to do something about it.

Craig,

Many thanks for opening the doors to let the wind of radical Gynocracy blow through my mind, though you'll forgive me if I open a few windows first.

Three things I found particularly startling about the wisdom wafting down from Witchwind (Nobody seeks her there, nobody seeks her here / Nobody seeks here anywhere / Is she in hell – yes.):

[1] While she reviles all men and boys, her especial ire seems to be targeted toward 'liberal' men who she sees as mendacious in contrast to convicted rapists and wife beaters who, in her world, are virtuous by having abandoned their pretenses. In other words, those men who might be expected to have some sympathy with Feminist projects are the real scum.

[2] Browsing through her Blogposts, I felt as if I was listening to the ravings of a terrorist of the Al Qaeda / Red Brigade / Baader Meinhof etc. type. I don't mean that hyperbolically either, I'm actually quite serious. The specific aims (radical Ecofeminism/Islamism/Marxism) may differ, but the general strategy is identical – polarize and vanquish.

That is, provoke a target group (in this case all men and their still-willing female thralls) until they are beyond endurance and then use any hostile backlash coming back toward you as the 'proof' that the designated target group is exactly the kind of Villainous Oppressor the Radical Ecofems / Islamists etc. you always said they were. Keep going until the battle lines are clear enough to be able to start the carnage proper.

I suppose it's a bit like 'Divide and Rule', but irrupting from below rather than imposed from above.

In any event, the aim is to be as vile, preposterous and as intolerant as possible, using whatever means are at your disposal or that you dare to use. But having to make any kind of sense? That's for splitters and losers.

[3] That there is a really terrible sense that [1] and [2] come about from failure (real or perceived) to be accepted by a group you really wanted to be a part of. Or maybe more accurately, failing to become a leader of the group you wanted to be a part of. The fault is never yours. It's always 'out there'.

Nik White

David,

Belated New Year's wishes and (going back to 'The Needs of Artists' thread from the end of last year), many thanks for reacquainting me with Brian Ashbee's wonderful article, 'Art Bollocks'.

I actually had a redacted version of that very same article, which I liked so much that I had it on the wall of my pod at work for almost a year before a passing manager saw it and insisted it had to go – though weirdly, it was not so much the word 'Bollocks' that he felt was inappropriate for a workplace (which would not have been entirely unreasonable, of course) but because, working in the British Council at that time, the content was very much 'off-message'.

Thanks also for the links to Vanessa Engle's 'Lefties', all of which I have now watched.

There is too much comic-horror episodes there to recount them all, but one thing did strike me which I will mention: the fate of Alan Hayling.

I appreciate that this may smack of the politics of envy, but seriously – how on earth did a man whose CV included 8 years working/agitating on a car factory assembly line followed by the squandering of £6,000,000 on a disastrous white elephant even get through the front doors of broadcasting house let alone get actual interview at the BBC? Were there no other applicants that day?

While I personally am in favour of giving people second chances or even just a 'fair go' as the Aussies have it, I am nevertheless incredulous that even with a double-first from Cambridge they deigned to even interview him for whatever his first job there was before he rose to become the one-time Head of Documentaries. They say talent will out, but no doubt I, too, could make good if people felt I was worthy of a second chance after pissing away a fortune of Union fees on a project as preposterous as News on Sunday

Are the BBC regularly in the habit of interviewing and employing people with work experience of absolutely no relevance whatsoever to the job they are going to take on? I'm tempted to apply for a position as documentary maker just to see if my utterly unrelated experiences will open doors for me there too.

David

Nik,

thanks for reacquainting me with Brian Ashbee’s wonderful article, ‘Art Bollocks’.

It’s a great piece and at the time was very widely read, including among art educators and curators. That it seems to have had no impact whatsoever on the outflow of said bollocks tells us something about the people still churning it out.

how on earth did a man whose CV included 8 years working/agitating on a car factory assembly line followed by the squandering of £6,000,000 on a disastrous white elephant even get through the front doors of broadcasting house let alone get an actual interview at the BBC?

It’s the BBC. With a background like that, he’d be an ideal candidate. The right sort of chap.


Franklin,

The rotating light source is surprisingly effective.

The funny dancing monkey is funny . . . until it isn't.

Al-Qaeda was just another bunch of nutty Muslims . . . until they killed 3,000 people in half an hour.
The NSDAP was a bunch of nutty Germans . . . until they plunged the world into war, killing millions.

"Witchwind" is another nutty feminist . . .

I see the Beeb’s leanings as more a function of institutional comfort zones and groupthink. Its editors and journalists tend to be somewhere to the left of the broader population, as do many arts and media graduates. It would therefore be surprising if the Beeb’s output, and that of many other media organisations, didn’t reflect that to some extent.

"Forget The Archers, it’s BBC Radio’s gang of Lefty comedians that betrays its political bias"

While it would be hard, foolish in fact, to try and argue against a left-leaning bias in BBC news and comedy, I'm glad that you mention that the same is equally true of many other media organisations.

For instance, I almost exclusively watch the ITN-produced Channel 4 News (because it strikes me as being generally pretty reliable) but I'm aware that it is probably not far different from BBC's Newsnight in terms of tone. Similarly, does Channel 4's satirical '10 O'Clock' show (the one fronted by Charlie Brooker, David Mitchell, Jimmy Carr and Lauren Laverne) have any less of a left-leaning political bias than most of the BBC's news/comedy output? (In fact, it is probably rather more to the Left).

I agree that there is very likely some truth in the accusation of groupthink but in fairness to BBC (and ITN's C4) journalists I think responsibility for this kind of bias can actually be traced back to the pernicious overrepresentation of Left wing politics in the majority of faculties in Higher Education institutions.

The problem comes when a responsible journalist needs to consult an expert in order to do some fact checking – researchers at think tanks may be problematic in as much as they have explicit political affiliations so the next seemingly reasonable alternative is to consult the universities on the grounds that they will provide an impartial view.

Implausible as this must sound, experts working in Higher Education are still assumed to have a greater commitment to truth and objectivity (or something approaching that ideal) than to any political inclinations they may hold personally. Inexplicably, this aura of impartiality even seems to be extended to Professors of subjects that would not even exist at all if they had not been created out of a demand to fulfill certain political expectations.

This has been most clearly visible to me on the relentless assaults on Conservative Education Secretary Michael Gove every time he opens his mouth (or even sometimes when he doesn't). Slightly ironically, my own view is that Gove is actually deserving of criticism on a number of policies but be that as it may, I have been nevertheless exasperated by the utter inevitability with which a legion of experts in Education have come out to trash anything and everything issued from his ministry. It has been as inevitable, in fact, as the yawn-invoking predictability with which Finland (or any Scandinavian country for that matter) is wheeled out as the sine qua non of a world-beating system of education (the lionization of the Finnish education system and the proposal that the UK should follow its lead is one of my pet hates, but that's another story).

But the Left wing bias in Higher Education also explains the Left wing bias in comedy programming – the conditioning that any non-Left idea is at best ignorant and retrograde and at worst intolerably racist and fascist would make it very hard for anyone aged 15-24 to openly admit to finding certain types of comedy funny. And as people aged 15-24 often make up a large part of the audience for comedy programmes the producers are unlikely to bring someone on who will be off-message.

I would just like to point out that I have a number of sympathies with some Left-leaning ideas and more importantly (like FIRE) would be horrified at the idea of having Left-wing thinkers – even far left ones such as David Graeber and Sheila Jeffries etc. – pushed off campus – that's the very last thing I would want to see happen. But I feel quite strongly that the lack of political balance in Higher Education does students a disservice and, ultimately, harms Higher Education in the long-term itself (i.e. Left wing academics freezing out the 'opposition' is ultimately self-defeating in the long run, so it doesn’t even serve their own best interests let alone anyone else's). As I've suggested above, its negative influence can extend well beyond the academy too.

David

The author of the rad-fem ravings mentioned earlier must be having a traffic spike this weekend. Robert Stacy McCain has also been laughing.

Nik White

But this is all radical feminism actually is, the elaboration of mental illness as a political philosophy.

Eeeeh, Harsh! But as long as we're talking about the witchy winds blowing off the far radical end of the spectrum, I think he may well have a point there.

David

Nik,

I feel quite strongly that the lack of political balance in Higher Education does students a disservice and, ultimately, harms Higher Education…

I’ll be posting something (else) along those lines in the next day or two.

Air-Tight Argument
Posted on February 22, 2007 by notwithoutmyhandbag

From a Pagan forum, by a woman aptly named ‘Lunacie’:

My oldest granddaughter is named Katlin Kay Alexandria B. The Katlin is Irish without being especially traditional in spelling, the Kay is my middle name, and the Alexandria is my daughter’s ‘working’ name.

My youngest granddaughter is named Nove ‘Mber B. Hey, if people can name their girls April, May, June, etc. why not November? She was born the 27th of November…


Humid! Foggy! Dinner Time!
Posted on December 27, 2007 by notwithoutmyhandbag

Years ago, a neighbor of mine had several children with what I considered absurd names (Breezy Spring, Misty Autumn and some other inane name which included Stormy). When I asked the woman where she got the names, she proudly announced that she took them from the weather on the day the child was born. I irreverently called them Wheezy, Breezy and Louise-y, but it gave me hours of free entertainment coming up with names for this woman’s subsequent children. Dismal December, Tsunami Sunshine, Sleety Haze, Rainy Daze, Hoar Frost, Typhoon …

An offshoot of this hypothetical baby-naming was that my children and I would take random syllables and write them on pieces of paper. We would then pull several and string them together to form endlessly amusing stupid
names. Amazingly enough, we have since heard many of these improbable combinations used as actual names!

Other obnoxious names I have encountered:
Ralphann (girl)
Abundance Lee (girl)
Blue Sky (boy)
Hug (boy)
Sammi (boy)
Persephone (girl)

Kids Are Dumb
Posted on April 8, 2006 by notwithoutmyhandbag

I am having this baby boy on Aug 6. Dad and I love Alexander Scott but our last name is Smith. Will the initals be a huge problem? We don’t want him to be teased.

That’s OK. Kids are pretty uncreative when it comes to teasing. They’ll never eventually spot that one.

Ted S., Catskill Mtns., NY, USA

David,

Has Jesse Myerson's Rolling Stone article made it to your side of the Atlantic yet?

bgates

Other obnoxious names I have encountered:

There was a woman of some note in America named Stanley Anne - her father, Stanley, really wanted a boy - and that woman was nonetheless so well-adjusted that she got knocked up by a bigamist foreigner during her freshman year of college, and moved across an ocean with the child where she raised the boy for ten years before sending him back to his grandparents.

The child was given the exotic name of the father of whom he had no memory, and whatever humiliations it brought him, the inherited name (and melanin) were enough for him to be elected President twice.

Pellegri

Nik, I think the harshness is warranted in the case of radfems, especially the "all sex is rape" camp.

Normal garden-variety feminists (of which there are not as many as there claim to be--but Camille Paglia is one) aren't acting out a psychological dysfunction as an equality movement.

David

Ted,

As the mansion-dwelling socialist Billy Bragg once said, “I learned all of my politics from pop music.”

Nik White

Steve,

I can only assume that you are unaware of the seemingly permanent presence of Jeremy Hardy, Mark Steel, Mark Thomas, Sandi Toksvig etc. or you could not possibly have made that 'observation'.

Au contraire I am a regular listener to BBC radio and am well aware of the very prominent place Steel, Hardy, Thomas, Goreman etc. have there. But it doesn't seem to bother me particularly. For example, I quite enjoy listening to Mark Steel's Lectures (such as this one for example) and feel perfectly able to do so without ever being 'suaded to his point of view.

To be fair to Toksvig's run on News Quiz, they have (admittedly only from this year) attempted to balance out the left wing bias on the panel, at least a little. So Fraser Nelson and Bob Mills have started appearing now, alongside stalwarts such as Jeremy Hardy and the completely odious buffoon, Bridget Christie.

When I made that observation (or 'observation') about C4's 10 o'clock show, I had in mind the time Lauren Laverne reported on the threatened cut to the Arts Council's funding, not to mention the now notorious irony of this sketch from Jimmy Carr.

Nik White

Pellegri,

Nik, I think the harshness is warranted in the case of radfems, especially the "all sex is rape" camp.

No disagreement with that here.

Steve

Nik,

The 11 O'Clock nonsense is only on for 1 hour per week and is easily avoided, as I always do. Unfortunately my other half loves Radio 4 and, however many times I turn it off, it just keeps coming back! The worst thing about 11 O C is that Mitchell & Carr are so obviously naturally Conservativebut they are so bloody cowardly or greedy that they are apparently happy to play ball with the lovey consensus -it's really horrible. If you haven't alreaddy, check out Mitchells YouTube rants, they are quite amusing and almost always take a very conservative position (I know he's playing on his Peep Show persona but I find it hard to believe that it is far from who he really is, behind the Beeb friendly mask.)
