Sarah R – the feminist who keeps on giving

Earlier this evening I posted a piece inspired by an exchange with a feminist, ‘Sarah R’, who was unwilling to learn about MGM and FGM, despite (or maybe because of) having entrenched – and highly uninformed – opinions on both. I’ve made it clear I won’t publish any more comments from her, and deleted some, but, like every Entitlement Princess, she’s the gift that keeps on giving, so herewith another blog piece based on her witterings.

She’s just posted this on our YouTube channel, perhaps in a desperate bid to win a Gormless Feminist of the Month award:

So I’ve had time to go through your blogs and other articles and it’s given me a clearer picture on your beliefs. One mistake you make is that feminism is a part of every woman and young girls life. [What does she mean by ‘a part of’? I honestly don’t understand what point she’s trying to make. Has she been reading someone else’s blogs and articles, by mistake? She believed William Collins’s article on MGM to have been written by me, after all.]

It would be difficult to find a western woman who disagrees with feminism. [It would not be difficult, it turns out. The Fawcett Society – a radical feminist campaign organization Sarah may have heard of – 12 months ago published research showing only 9% of British women identify as feminists. The proportion of women espousing this evil ideology is declining with each year that passes, happily.]

Also have you thought about moving to Saudi Arabia? I heard that you barely see women let alone hear them. They are locked up in their homes all day. Rape and sexual assault is never reported. Or how about Pakistan? That would be right up your ally (sic). They haven’t even heard of the term fgm there. That could only delight you.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

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.

  • She might want to do some study on Saudi too. I work there and see women everyday.

    Face it Mike, she’s beaten you (I’m laughing as I type). I wonder if she’s acquainted with Feminist_Delusions, the lunatic occasional commentator over at The Conservative Woman.

  • Her mention of Pakistan is illuminating. A few years ago, a campaign started there to wipe out the practice of routine genital mutilation. (I’m kidding, the campaign was only against mutilation of females.) What started as a well-meaning campaign in Pakistan ran into the common troubles seen around the world. The most obvious trouble is that any campaign against mutilating only one sex’s genitals is sexist, discriminatory and in direct contravention of the UNDHR and Pakistan’s constitution. This inevitably leads to feminist take-over and therefore funding being diverted into political objectives and away from actually solving the problem. Then comes the exaggeration of the issue, taking the few worst cases and pretending this is the norm (kind of like quoting that some boys have their penis removed as a result of ‘circumcision’ and stating this is what all MGM is about). National Pakistan TV, for example, states this on its website: “The vaginal opening is stitched and the clitoris is cut off. This makes girls infertile.” Not only is this kind of mutilation very rare and outlawed everywhere I know of — regardless of whether the country has specific laws against FGM — but neither process actually causes infertility. Added to this is a campaign for women to be in control of their own bodies, which includes a demand to chose circumcision (in this case, trimming outer labia), and campaigns to allow ‘tolerance’ of religious beliefs (supported by feminists) which include allowing circumcision. In other words, by turning the issue of genital mutilation into a divisive political matter, little is happening other than wild and unnecessary exaggeration, feminist funding, and a moral stance that is so flexible as to lead to little action. Much like any other country with feminist influence.
