The Birth of Feminism - Steve Brulé

Why did powerful, wealthy, privileged white women of the mid-nineteenth century suddenly claim that they were oppressed by men and launch the feminist movement? Why did women not rise up 2,000 years ago, or 1500 or 500 years ago. It's not as if women had remained silent through history, they certainly had not, and they did not see themselves as oppressed by men until recently. So, why start in 1848? What had changed? 

Let's examine the claims made by feminists since the very beginning of the movement, especially the central feminist claim that women have always been oppressed by men. We'll briefly look at the relationship between men and women in antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the time of the first American settlers from Britain in the early 1600's, all of which set the stage for the creation of the Declaration of Sentiments at the Seneca Falls convention in 1848. 

I will argue that the feminist enterprise is a natural outcome of female intra- and inter- sexual competition in which women use the aggressive strategies of Social Exclusion, Self-Promotion and Derogation described by evolutionary psychologists, on a grand scale, and with great success, in the endless battle for power between the sexes and within the various hierarchies of human societies. We will also see that the motivation for the very first feminist convention at Seneca Falls in 1848 had nothing to do with winning the vote for women, which was added almost as an afterthought. The real reason may surprise you.

The Man-Shaming Project - Janice Fiamengo

Over the past decade, we have been inundated with videos and public service campaigns calling out men for unacceptable behavior and informing them of what they must do and not do: do not accept an invitation for sex from a drunk woman; do not express any approval for a woman’s looks by whistling or complimenting her as she walks by; do not hug a co-worker, touch her on the shoulder, stand too close, or look at her too frequently; and when you’re sitting on the subway, do not get comfortable: be sure to keep your knees pressed close together. Click here to watch the original video "The Fiamengo File Episode 11."

It seems that no matter how men express their heterosexual maleness, there’s a feminist-influenced campaign to tell them it’s wrong.

Let me mention just a few.

Golden Penis Syndrome - Janice Fiamengo

A recent article in the Daily Mail claims that something called “Golden Penis Syndrome” is ruining dating for college women, and we’re all supposed to feel sad for them. Repeatedly telling young men that their penises aren’t golden, the article shows that the opposite is true.

We’ve been told for years that the future is female, that everyone benefits from female leadership and everything improves when women take charge.

Any man who ever objected to the plethora of special university programs and women-only scholarships and pro-woman propaganda was told he had a problem with gender equality. But now it turns out that

The Monstrous Male Gaze - Janice Fiamengo

Stories about the varieties of female violation by men are getting more bizarre by the day. Click Here to watch on YouTube.

If you’re a man, commenting on any aspect of a woman’s physical appearance, speaking in the wrong tone of voice, or brushing against her body all now rank as a potential sexual assault in the wide spectrum of indignities and outrages that women want men punished for. It really is the case, as my friend Observing Libertarian put it in a recent article, that men can’t even look at a woman without it potentially being felt as a sexual assault.
