It’s Festivus!

Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was airing my grievances.

Oh, wait . . . it was.

Instead of grievances, how about a list of Feminist Face-Plants from 2014?

Top 10 feminist fiascoes of 2014

The “gang rape” hoax at UVA
. . .
Wendy Davis
. . .
Rotherham
. . .
#Shirtstorm
. . .
Hobby Lobby
. . .
The Nine West shoe ad ragefest: Nothing inflames a feminist more than the idea that women primarily want to be wives and mothers. So when Nine West launched a series of ads for stilettos over the summer with such slogans as “starter husband hunting” and “first day of kindergarten,” feminists clutched their pearls so tightly over the supposed damage to women’s “self-esteem” that they nearly decapitated themselves.

The Great Spider-Woman Sexist Derriere Scandal: Feminist ire detonated after the leaking of Italian graphic artist Milo Manara’s comic-book cover showing Spider-Woman clambering over the top of a skyscraper with her behind stuck up in the air. “A male hero would never be placed in the same physical position,” sniffed one commentator. Then it turned out that a male hero — namely Spider-Man himself — had been placed in the exact same position, with his behind stuck up in the air, on the cover of one of his comic books.

F-Bombs for Feminism: Someone actually thought it would help the cause of women to dress up little girls in princess costumes and video them as they dropped the f-word more times than Leonardo di Caprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” I kept hoping the voices in this video were dubbed by adults who had the sense not to put foul words into the mouths of children — but no chance.

Amanda Marcotte
. . .
“Ban Bossy”
. . .


As you can see, I left out some of the specifics. You gotta go to the link if you want to read them.

The only one I hadn’t heard of was the Nine West thingie. I never posted anything about Spider Woman and I don’t remember if the F-bomb video was front-paged or not, but I’m sure I posted something about it.

That’s a pretty embarrassing list. I’m pretty sure I could add to it without much effort. Lena Dunham and the Democrat War on Women were both major fiascoes. So was Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. #YesAllWomen and Beyonce’s underwear feminism were bad too.

Any others?

    I’m going to bed. Angry feministas tire me out. They keep saying what they don’t want. If they were really that independent, why involve me at all?

    How did I forget this classic?

  5. Lulu says:

    After reading the particulars over the college “rape culture” cases in various universities, I sadly came to the conclusion that it basically is some junior high level emotional IQ girls fighting over caddish boys.There is no corresponding understanding that 18 to 20 year old “men” are frequently spotty, mixed up, under-socialized babies. These girls are going to college thinking “Twilight” and the boys are thinking “Animal House”. When I went to college in the early 1970’s very few girls would date freshmen and sophomore boys because… well, it was obvious why. They were babies and goobers and did not know how to socialize and had to learn how. They were sweet and fun and obnoxious and not dating material. Feminists must stop imposing and projecting their fantasies onto boys and young men. Ignoring biology is dangerous and useless. They cannot do what these idiots want them to do and I’m not sure they would want them if they did.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    The snowflakes are turning on DeBlasio, how dare he ask them to suspend their protests til after the cops’ funerals.

    Hah! That top 10 Feminist fiascos article is great. Started following the columnist, @meancharlotte

    • Lulu says:

      Suggestions of Blue flue, no tickets and going slo mo in response times produces an enormous freak out because it won’t stop there. Other city workers (sanitation, parks, etc) and the trades could do the same thing in sympathy strikes and NYC would be fucked. Cause and effect. As a Vile Prog de Blasio is missing the cause and effect part of his brain. So what does he do? He blames the media for covering his nasty comments. Try shutting your pie hole first de Blasio.

  9. WMCB says:

    So, people are getting more and more pissed at the protesters and at DeBlasio, and all of a sudden “politicizing a tragedy” is a big no no.

    who knew if the price of health care goes up a whole lot so does the GDP

    • Lulu says:

      This is very, very bad. Obamacare is sucking a disturbing amount of disposable income out of the economy. It is not for health CARE but health INSURANCE! that doesn’t get used because of deducs and co-pays and they are counting the amount coming out of disposable income on deducs and co-pays. It will affect housing and auto buying next. Soon everyone will be only able to buy food and health insurance while living in boxes wearing rags. My last sentence already describes a lot of the millennials. This is catastrophic to the economy as a whole.

    sharpton and his mob say NO to stopping protests until after police funerals

    • lyn says:

      Sharpton and his mob are the new Westboro sickos.

    • The Klown says:

      … Rev. Al Sharpton told Reuters late Monday that de Blasio’s request was too “ill-defined” to heed.

      “Is a vigil a protest? Is a rally?” Sharpton asked.

      Another group, The Answer Coalition, said it would go ahead with a long-planned march Tuesday evening, and denounced the mayor for what it called an “outrageous” attempt to chill free speech. The New York Post reported that a few dozen protesters staged a “die-in” at Grand Central Terminal before marching toward Times Square.

      “We will not let recent tragic moments derail this movement,” one protester shouted. “This is the revolution and we will not be repressed.”

      • DandyTIger says:

        “You say you want a revolution
        Well, you know We all want to change the world
        You tell me that it’s evolution
        Well, you know We all want to change the world
        But when you talk about destruction
        Don’t you know that you can count me out…”

  15. The Klown says:

    Whatever that is has a trackball mouse and a 1950’s frame/cabinet with an antenna and some strange wiring.

      Sadly people will only learn this harsh reality after implementation.
      Best paragraph
      “The use of language to distort reality, the fables, and the contorted logic all result from a central fact: the way in which Obama and his cohort wish to fundamentally transform America is not where the majority of Americans wish to end up. Given that fact, Obama must find fantasies to mask reality — and do so by any means necessary.”

    Everyone is equal. There, I settled it. Now instead of whining, get off your ass and do something.

    Apparently my Thanksgiving ham was a real hit. I have been “asked” to bring another one on Christmas day.

    I love Fracking!!! 😆

    • SHV says:

      If oil prices stay, the “tight oil” (fracking) industry in the US will die a quick death. All of the companies are highly leveraged and have massive amounts of debt. It’s unclear what the lower limit of oil price is in order to make a profit but may be about $90/barrel. The pipe line from North Dakota to OK has been cancelled and the number of drilling rigs working are dropping fast. The Saudi’s can pump oil and sell at $20-40/barrel and still make a profit. Interesting times.

  31. Jadzia says:

    You’d better believe I have a fucking Festivus grievance. The “allahu akbar” knife attack in the police station was in my town.

    Now the government is claiming that there is TOTALLY no terrorist connection at all to the guy who yelled the same thing and plowed into 11 people in Dijon, or the guy who rampaged through the Christmas market in Nantes today, or the heavily armed guy arrested shambling through the holiday crowds in Cannes a couple of hours ago. Government is also apparently not releasing the names of the perpetrators.

    Gee, I wonder why that is?

    Welcome to the new country, same as the old country.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on the cheerleading re: the economic upswing. I trust absolutely nothing produced by the NY Times so what you say independent thinkers?

    U.S. Economy Grew 5% in Third Quarter, Its Fastest Rate in More Than a Decade

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/24/business/us-q3-gdp-revised-up-to-5-percent.html?_r=0

    • DandyTIger says:

      There is an upswing via GDP. A lot of that is because of lower oil cost (a lower tax to the middle class if you will), which in turn means more spending. A lot of spending is due to higher Obamacare insurance costs. Problem is GDP isn’t a good indicator of anything. It just says how many transactions have happened or how much money is flowing. It could be transactions and money flow between the same two people and still produce a giant GDP number, so it can be meaningless. You have to dig a little deeper. Things are up in spending, but income is not up, and real joblessness is still horrendous. Oh, and it looks like real estate will be going up again because of the same reasons we had a housing bubble before. So we have that collapse to look forward to again.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Already covered. Only made possible by fracking.

    • Lulu says:

      Disposable income (and and for some people non disposable which is supposed to be used for food, clothing and housing) is going for Obamacare premiums, increased deductibles and co-pays that would have been spent on something else not counted in the stats or even worse would have been saved for retirement, college, rainy day, paying down debt, etc. This is really, really bad. It is a massive “displacement” in the economy for a policy people did not want. It will be worse next year.

    • The Klown says:

      Obama has been in office for over half of that decade.

  38. WMCB says:

    Excellent article on the lack of any real philosophical, historical or logical ground by the Left. They are winging it on feelings, all the time, and it leads to absurdities.

        Used to love watching the types of jurors chosen from the pool by prosecutors at the beginning of a trial. Seasoned folks meant good, strong facts. Youngish folks meant lots of emotion and not much reality.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Good article, and nice use of a G.K. Chesterton quote. The new left is very silly. Identity politics will always end up silly like this, by definition. There are a lot of tradition, mindful, smart liberals still stuck within the new left. Must be a very troubling time for them. They should escape like we did.

      • WMCB says:

        Basically, they keep clinging to the Left because of principles they hold, while never noticing that the Left has long ago jettisoned those principles, and won’t be getting them back. They served their purpose, now moving on to full class/race war and total gov involvement in your entire life.

        I have no party, and roll my eyes at the GOP daily, but I will never be a Lefty again. It’s all practicalities for me now. Philosophically, I’m a sensible semi-traditionalist. Humans behave and interact in predictable ways, and have for millennia, so let’s go with that and not fight it. The best we can do is encourage the very best and restrain the very worst of human nature. It won’t be perfect.

        But ain’t nobody re-shaping mankind.

        • The Klown says:

          One of the bedrock principles of Enlightenment thinking is dealing with the universe the way it really is, not how we wish it to be. Human nature is what it is. That doesn’t mean “anything goes” it means human beings are neither angels nor machines.

  39. foxyladi14 says:

    Sums it up nicely. 😀

  40. WMCB says:

    Christmas itself is horrible and patriarchal, y’all. You know, I really don’t care if these women want to be miserable. Fine, go be miserable. Just stop trying to make the rest of us so.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Doesn’t she know the long hair she wears is patriarchal. It’s so I can drag her into a cave. Doesn’t she know that? Why does she hate women?

    • Underwhelmed says:

      I wonder if they even comprehend that there would be no Christmas without Christ? By all means, call it a Solstice festival and celebrate that if the religious stuff isn’t for you. But for the folk for whom this is in fact a religious event, just fuck off and leave them alone.
