Female privilege #41: men aren’t allowed to fight back

I try to avoid anything relating to celebrity ‘culture’ wherever possible, but I couldn’t avoid learning that in the United States there’s been some unpleasantness between Jay Zed, a popular ‘rap artist’ – whatever that term means, I’m more of a Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Led Zeppelin and Bjork fan – and his sister-in-law. Jay Zed’s wife Bea Yonsay is also well-known, it would seem. The unpleasantness took place in a lift, of all places. What dark times we live in.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have considered linking to such a story in a month of Sundays, but one of our favourite Honey Badgers – Janet Bloomfield (‘JudgyBitch’) – has penned a piece on the story, which is (of course) well worth reading. Take it away, JB:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • JB does indeed put her finger on the pulse of misandry. The quote from Voltaire is simply perfect to identify who is actually in charge or at least the modern aristocracy. She is quite accurate in identifying gender feminism as a heresy of Marxism. Having signally failed to do more than mirror fascism, and by any definition the remaining states ruled by a communist party are the very image of corporatist fascism, marrxism took a turn in the fifties and specially the sixties to “cultural” Marxism. Effectively saying that as workers revolution had not ushered in the earthly paradise of classless society then the revolution should be aimed at “reactionary” social structures. Family , marriage, respect for age or learning, equitable justice, moral responsibility and so on being impediments to this new society all had to be undermined. The “Cultural Revolution” and Pol Pot’s “Year Zero” being the most catastrophic examples of this ideology. In the west the very unacceptability of this brand of Marxism to ordinary people quickly displaced activity to legal and social policy to undermine the social bonds and institutions that the ideology sees as an impediment to their classless society. Family bonds, personal moral responsibility, equity, representative democracy , marriage and other “bourgeois” structures all are relentlessly undermined. Of course the irony is that it is the working class that are most likely to aspire to and subscibe to such social norms( even if reality doesn’t reflect the aspiration) and who lose the most in the cultural revolution . And Gender Feminism? Well it’s like the vanguard of this cultural revolution , from behind the deeply held beliefs to protect females it undermines the family and affective structures that are the chief obstacles to the state engineered “year zero” , that will magically transform society to the Marxist “Jerusalem” the Eternal, Classless Society. So yea JB, keep telling it how it is.

  • the more i think about it the more Jay Z should have just slapped her back and defended himself. otherwise the message is still that old old story of men should just stand there while women use them as a punchbag. women would soon stop this disgraceful behaviour if they were truly treated like equals and got a smack back for it like you would if a man attacked you
