If you've read the Misandry Bubble you'd know that we're in an age where the normalized vilification of masculinity is of a transient nature. The Futurist predicts that it will be realized by 2020, but I think it may happen even sooner. Adding to the countless examples from 2014, I bring to you an account from Scott Aaronson, a liberal, progressive feminist MIT Professor who has read more feminist literature than most Tumblrinas.
In his blog he publishes an emotional appeal to Feminists, because he cannot reconcile his personal experience with feminist beliefs. The idea that this shy, introverted, liberal mega-nerd was somehow privileged in life smacks him in the face. To wit:
"But I suspect the thought that being a nerdy male might not make me “privileged”—that it might even have put me into one of society’s least privileged classes—is completely alien to your way of seeing things. To have any hope of bridging the gargantuan chasm between us, I’m going to have to reveal something about my life, and it’s going to be embarrassing.
(sigh) Here’s the thing: I spent my formative years—basically, from the age of 12 until my mid-20s—feeling not “entitled,” not “privileged,” but terrified. I was terrified that one of my female classmates would somehow find out that I sexually desired her, and that the instant she did, I would be scorned, laughed at, called a creep and a weirdo, maybe even expelled from school or sent to prison. And furthermore, that the people who did these things to me would somehow be morally right to do them—even if I couldn’t understand how."
Sounds familiar to some of you guys, doesn't it? Here is a guy who is on the vanguard of the Feminist white-knight brigade, but he's experiencing such cognitive dissonance that he needs to try and reach out. His inner knight wants to help women, but can't help but feel vilified. He was so terrified of offending women and using his "privilege" to oppress women that he asked to be prescribed chemical castration drugs. Think about that. That's how much feminist thought fucked up his mind. He wanted to do anything to avoid offending women, but couldn't deny his urges to fuck them.
Then he makes the revelation that for most would lead them on the path to TRP:
All this time, I faced constant reminders that the males who didn’t spend months reading and reflecting about feminism and their own shortcomings—even the ones who went to the opposite extreme, who engaged in what you called “good old-fashioned ass-grabbery”—actually had success that way. The same girls who I was terrified would pepper-spray me and call the police if I looked in their direction, often responded to the crudest advances of the most Neanderthal of men by accepting those advances. Yet it was I, the nerd, and not the Neanderthals, who needed to check his privilege and examine his hidden entitlement!
Huh. Guys who are aggressive, dominant, and don't give a shit about feminism or "checking their privilege" score with women regularly. Even with the self-same feminists decrying that behaviour. How to reconcile these thoughts? What should a good liberal male feminist do? What happens is he ignored some of his inner feminist ideals, and instead chose to pursue his own happiness, in his minor way:
All that happened was that I got older, and after years of hard work, I achieved some success in science, and that success boosted my self-confidence (at least now I had something worth living for), and the newfound confidence, besides making me more attractive, also made me able to (for example) ask a woman out, despite not being totally certain that my doing so would pass muster with a committee of radfems chaired by Andrea Dworkin—a prospect that was previously unthinkable to me. This, to my mind, “defiance” of feminism is the main reason why I was able to enjoy a few years of a normal, active dating life, which then led to meeting the woman who I married.
There it is. While he can't discard his beta indoctrination -- he still identifies as 97% feminist -- he recognizes that the key to his happiness was to ignore what feminists say and take care of himself. He swallowed the smallest of Red Pills, and it allowed him to achieve a modicum of happiness.
If a dyed-in-the-wool liberal feminist professor can find it in him to fight back against Feminist nonsense, who knows what we'll see from the rest of 2015.
Incidentally, if you want to see a response to his post, here a Rawstory article. Are they supportive of their ally, who found happiness while still mostly carrying their banner?
Hah. You guys know better. Feminists loathe beta males. AWALT.
