A self-described feminist contributing writer for Bustle has a list of rules for male feminists that they need to be following.
This one is funny, but it’s important to understand a few things about feminism. First of all, the dictionary definition of feminism because when you ask Leftists what feminism means, you will get a variety of answers that are sometimes conflicting with each other.
1- the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
2- organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests
In the United States, those on the political Left try to maintain political power by breaking the population into segments, and then trying to convince those segments that they are victims. From 2008-2016, we were told that blacks in the United States are being held back, oppressed, and are unable to get ahead in life despite the fact that America had elected its first black president. A black man was literally holding the highest office in the land at the same time that the cronies in his administration were working to try to convince blacks that America is oppressive towards blacks.
Likewise, feminist-Leftists argue that women are oppressed and are paid less than their male counterparts. From Politifact:
“In his 2012 re-election run, an ad for President Barack Obama claimed ‘Women (are) paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men.’ That rated Mostly False.
But Obama retooled his words in his 2014 State of the Union address, saying women ‘still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.’ That rated Mostly True.
The difference in Obama’s two statements is subtle but important. The 77-cent figure derived from a federal government measure does not apply to men and women who do the same job. Instead it refers to the average disparity between what men and women earn, period. All women’s earnings compared to all men’s earnings.”
In other words, the statistics that suggest that women make 77 cents for every dollar that men make does not include factors such as the line of work that each of the two sexes are in or the number of hours that they work. It instead looks, nationwide, at the average salaries of full-time men and full-time women.
It’s why we say Leftists don’t let the facts get in the way of their agendas.
Lauren Holter, a feminist contributor for Bustle, provided five rules that male feminists need to follow.
Rule Number One:
Stop interrupting women.
Okay, this one might be fair, but it really applies to anyone- not just women. It’s just common courtesy and decent behavior, but feminists have now made it about them.
Rule Number Two:
Evaluate Your Language:
Watch those pesky “guys” pronouns when talking to a group of mixed-gender individuals. Don’t say, “Hey, do you guys want to go out for some pizza?” because you could trigger any feminists in the group. Also, avoid words like “emotional, needy, crazy, hysterical, frigid, or bossy” when describing women.
Rule Number Three:
Hold other men accountable.
If you are a male feminist, you should apparently be pushing your feminist agenda on your fellow males. If you see a man refer to a mixed-gender group as “guys” or call a woman “bossy,” you should step in and lecture them, thus making everyone feel a little bit uncomfortable.
Rule Number Four:
Tell female co-workers what you make.
There’s three things that you should probably never bring up with your co-workers if you want to avoid the possibility of a hostile workplace environment: politics, religion, and how much you are making.
Rule Number Five:
Vote for women.
Note that it does not say “vote for capable women” or “vote for accomplished women.” There is no “vote for women who will improve your life” or “vote for women based on their character or values.” There are also not guidelines of women to avoid, such as “don’t vote for women who are under a federal investigation for gross negligence with regard to the handling of classified national secrets” or “don’t vote for women who obstruct justice by destroying 30,000 subpoenaed emails that were sitting on a secret, unsecured server.”
Instead, according to feminist thinker Lauren Holter, vote for a candidate because of their reproductive organs.
If only there were a great thinker in American history who urged that people be judged based on their character rather than their physical characteristics…
