This article isn’t a spoof, apparently:
It’s brought to you by The Everyday Sexism Project, which has over 100,000 followers on Twitter. Women are being taught ever more things to whine about, rather than being expected to deal like rational adults with a sometimes challenging and dangerous world – as men have always had to. The project is nothing less than a 24/7/365 initiative to infantilise women, and it’s achieving that objective. Laura Bates must be thrilled.
It’s all too apparent that the main problem in many (maybe most) of her project’s followers’ lives aren’t men, but mental health issues, including personality disorders. Let’s take this example from the article:
I used to be quite aggressive and bold and now I find myself afraid to look men in the eye or smile because if I do they think it’s an invite to call me sweetheart and beckon me to them. I have anxiety attacks now, I cry for no reason, I’ve fallen behind in work, most of my friends are male and don’t seem to understand. None of the men who have made me feel worthless will be punished for what they did, instead I am punished.
A friendly middle-aged (female) cashier smiled at me this morning – now that’s a rare thing, in Tesco – and called me ‘darling’, although she didn’t ‘beckon’ me to her, thankfully. If such things led to me having anxiety attacks and crying, surely the problem would be mine to resolve? The problem surely wouldn’t be a cashier having called me ‘darling’.
The woman who wrote the extract we’ve taken from the article – and others like her – should be seeking treatment for their mental health problems, rather than fantasising that initiatives such as The Everyday Sexism Project will change the world, because they won’t. All these initiatives do is make women more angry at males collectively – half the humans on the planet – and make women more anxious and more dysfunctional in dealing with the real world.
Who benefits from such initiatives? Professional feminists, including women with Narcissistic Personality Disorder who are basking in the exposure they receive in the mainstream media. Collectively, however, women are paying a terrible price.
