If You Apologise, They Will Eat You

Janice Fiamengo on the neurotic malice of feminist outrage junkies:

See also Make Way for the Mao-lings, in which Dr Fiamengo vividly illustrates the tactics and effects of feminist hysteria, and the video here, in which she debates with a feminist professor of philosophy, Alice McLachlan, who insists that she “cares a lot about free speech,” but not for people who might dare to disagree with her. And remember, should you be at all sceptical of identitarian politics and tribal psychology, Your Failure to Agree Will Not Be Tolerated

David, thanks for introducing me to the Fiamengo Files. My daughter is now a fan too.

Happy to oblige. You and she may also like Karen Straughan, aka Girl Writes What. Maybe starting with this long phone interview with a BBC researcher who gets more of an education than I suspect he bargained for.

Fiamengo is awesome!

An apology will be taken as an admission of wrongdoing and used to prosecute you.

No apologies to outrage junkies.

You can’t expect to appease someone whose identity, credibility and in-group status are premised on being outraged and resentful, and whose need to scold, and to be seen scolding, inclines them to find ever more slim and implausible excuses for indignation, and sometimes outright lies. As someone who’s had quite a few exchanges with such people, very often a certain psychological type, I can vouch for this personally. For some, nothing short of deference will do.

I think I like Fiamengo a bit more than Karen Straughan (GirlWritesWhat), who is extremely cogent, but at the same time slightly fanatical

I've followed the Tim Hunt story, and debated some of his attackers - and in doing so have seen all the evasions, goal-post-changing, deliberate obtuseness, and witch-huntery you'd expect.

Luckily Louise Mensch is tormenting them online. A common response is of course that she is "silencing women".

This post and subsequent thread on the Larry Summers saga (and my long exchange with leftist blogger Dr Dawg) may be of interest.

Along with many, many others I have embellished my FB profile picture with a tricoleur.

According to one SJW of my acquaintance that makes me a racist, because in doing so I am ignoring the plight of, amongst others, the victims of a similar atrocity in the Lebanon. This from someone who gets himself all in a tizzy championing Hamas...

Demolishing feminism brick by brick. BBC temporarily stunned, forced to reconsider pop wisdom on women, mind, and Yanks.

Great example of those "evasions, goal-post-changing, deliberate obtuseness" etc. :-)

Well, it did get a bit… wriggly. There seemed to be an awful lot of indignation piled precariously on the tiniest justification. Like a well-fed heifer trying to balance on a golf ball. And the disregard for whether what Summers said is true, or even something one might think about, is quite interesting.

Well, in this modern age, we cannot allow for any thing as trivial as biology, talent, and, especially, free will interfere with the Grand Agenda.

"No woman should be authorized to stay at home to raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one."

"...have seen all the evasions, goal-post-changing, deliberate obtuseness, and witch-huntery you'd expect."

That sounds curiously like what's going on with the Catastrophic Climate Change Cult Crowd.

Er... What capitalism? We have a sort of quasi capitalism with massive taxation of comparative advantage (i.e. wages, not land titles, patents and copyrights as Adam Smith would tax) that is allowed to exist to fund the marxists and thus ensures a rich establishment.

They really are into sado-domination aren't they?

Because "christian extremism" is always carried out in the name of all that is holy. Or something.
