It seems to have begun with a lengthy piece at The Nation entitled, “Feminism’s Toxic Twitter Wars,” in which Michelle Goldberg examines the Internet as “a crucial place for feminist organizing.” Not all feminists believe they have an equal place at the virtual table, however. The Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch noted that “the most striking aspect of Michelle Goldberg’s article is the way Twitter is being used to silence those deemed to be not progressive enough.”

“From a right-of-center standpoint,” Bunch observes, “it’s interesting to watch the left grapple with their norm that one need not intend to act as a racist to in fact be a racist…. I’ve always been bemused by the left’s insistence that a failure to intend offense wasn’t a defense against causing offense, so I’m glad to see some of these activists wrestling with the norms they have championed.”

That struggle surfaced Friday in the form of the #WhiteFeministRants hashtag, which landed among Twitter’s trending topics Friday. Which posts are sincere and which are parody we’ll leave for you to decide.

      #1. It’s because of men and women’s individual career choices, is where that false percentage comes from.

      #2. Women get paid less than men because they, on average, work less. What a concept.

        I took a class in college where that second point of yours was a class discussion. They hated admitting it was true, and then they (feminists in the class) started raging. When slapped with facts, they (liberals in general) lash out in frustration.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          It’s solid truth and reality. It’s just a fact that women are the primary caregivers to their children in our society, whether married or a single parent. And because of that (and there’s nothing wrong with that), they are the ones who miss work when a child is sick, have to leave at 5:00 on-the-dot to scoop the kids up from day-care, are the least likely of the two genders to travel for business, etc. It’s a valid point. If you have a man and a woman in equal positions in a company and both are salaried, and the woman takes more time off due to handling family situations, she’s not putting in the same amount of time and in my opinion, doesn’t deserve the same automatic compensation. However, on the flip side of that – if you have a man and a woman in equal positions and the woman takes no more time off than the man because she either doesn’t have children or has a husband who is first at bat in family situations, if she’s making less than her male counterpart (considering she has all the same education and experience), then yes, that is wrong.

          On the other hand, I’ve never cared to keep tabs on what others make in any company I’ve been with. I know my own personal worth, my ethics, my education and experience – I focus on making sure I’m compensated based on what I bring to the table.

          • Kimihiro Watanuki

            Yeap, but my sociology credit ended up being interesting. I picked criminology for my sociology credit. Everyone picked people like Jeffrey Dahmer to write about for their project. I picked Josef Mengele- I was a history major, that had just had 3 classes on Holocaust History. Guess who the only person with a perfect score in that class was.

        • EqualityEd

          I lash out over black crime stats but I’m actually afraid of their being used to target/harm black people in ever more extreme ways.

          Feminists seem to do it because victim = power in their world especially when victim status can be earned without having to suffer injustice as in the pay gap. The fact that married women WITHOUT JOBS! live in households that on average make $20,000 a year more than those of single mothers is for some reason left out the conversation along with the fact 33% of moms stay at home versus 3.5% of dads.

          Of course this must represent the gender oppression of women.

          • Kimihiro Watanuki

            What kills me is how single motherhood wasn’t something to be sought after and proud of. Not so much, it seems, any more. All you see is how single motherhood should be a thing of praise.

          • JP

            I think two stable, loving, married parents is the best case scenario for raising kids. I also know that most single mothers don’t plan to be single mothers. It’s not because they’re man-haters. I sure never planned to be one. I didn’t plan to end up in a violent marriage either. But I was 22 and I thought he really loved me, I never dreamed he was capable of that. My best friend from grade school, a cop’s wife, was widowed at 26. Things happen. Also, I’m pro-life, and these young single women in difficult life circumstances who could easily have an abortion but choose to have their babies and work hard to give them a good life deserve mad props from where I sit.

          • Kimihiro Watanuki

            I’m not trying to put you down at all, and I praise you for NOT having an abortion. My mother got pregnant out of wedlock with me and could have taken some other routs than she did. Fortunately, my wonderful father, that passed away this last July, stepped up and did the right things. I was very fortunate to have that special man in my life, and I miss him with everything in me.

            I just feel like so many people rush into relationships and commitments before the proper time now a days. I didn’t find a spouse until I was 31. I was in a bad relationship at 22 and could have been in dire straits, too. By the grace of God, I was found my way out before something really horrible happened.

            I know horrible things happen in life and you end up, sometimes, without a partner that you need. A lady I know, her husband committed suicide and they had a teen daughter. She’s starting to recover, but it’s not easy. I do know there are situations out there like that.

            I guess what I was saying is that it seems to happen more frequently than it needs too in our day and age. I just wish ever kid out there had a special man in their life like my father.

      the reason these feminist Nazi’s make only 77% of males make is because they are not at work they are out protesting. maybe if they take their jobs more seriously, show up, and stay with a company more than a few months they would make the same. Why should a company invest in an employee if they have no assurance that they will stay longer than a month or two

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Ooooh how I get that! My own mother always had some very choice words about my father (they split when I was 4). To this day (42 years later!) she still holds a serious grudge (how sad for her), BUT what she didn’t do…was go through the rest of her life writing off men as (_)_)holes. And even men she dated over the years (before she remarried when I was 18), she never generalized men as (_)_)holes. She taught me by example that if you have a bad apple in your life (not that my father was one, he wasn’t, but that’s her story) or even a slew of bad apples – you have to take a look at yourself and discover WHY you keep attracting bad apples. The problem isn’t men, it’s you. She taught me the importance of taking a look at MY part in things and to not always place blame (except even if she still does so with my dad *snort* I give her that one card to play since she taught me a much more important life lesson.)

Had to go outside for a couple of minutes to remind myself what the real world looks like. I just can’t imagine what it’s like to live in a world where you sit all by yourself, your only interaction with others being to lash out in unhinged rage against anyone who manages to offend you in the tiniest way, even inadvertently.

      As far as dealing with these creatures goes, I’d double up the number of bars and locks on the cage doors, toss in some fresh red meat every now and then, and just stand back and watch them tear each other into smaller and smaller shreds.

        ” I just can’t imagine what it’s like to live in a world where you sit all by yourself, your only interaction with others being to lash out in unhinged rage against anyone who manages to offend you in the tiniest way, even inadvertently.”

        If given a choice between debating feminists or white supremacists I’m betting the latter would be less hostile towards black men. There is no greater sin than being male in feminism. You aren’t even allowed to speak unless you say things that have been pre-approved by the consensus of non males. White supremacists don’t hold men to that standard which means a black man would have a much easier time debating them.

  • Axelgreaser

    SEEING THAT PHOTO OF Ms. JUDD, I thought back and was wondering how Kentucky males (and females) would have felt about the actress representing them in the Senate after having made statements such as (quote): “..it is “unconscionable to breed” while there are so many starving children in the world. She criticized the tradition of fathers “giving away” their daughters at weddings, calling that practice “a common vestige of male dominion over a woman’s reproductive status.” She has even compared mountaintop removal mining to the Rwandan genocide, and has criticized Christianity as a religion that “legitimizes and seals male power.”–Unquote

    Wow! Only the Girl Scouts of America would have endorsed that! She managed to offend anyone entertaining an idea they might want to ‘breed’, Father’s of Brides, caterer’s everywhere, Christians (of course) and especially coal miners, and in Kentucky, no less! A state she hadn’t been a resident of for decades. That’s called a ‘Hillary’ or a ‘Rham’ residence bambooze. ‘I once breathed air in that state, so I’ll use the influence of celebrity and run for office. It just seems like there is an aberration that runs through the liberal mind that naturally seeks out politics and its willingness to use these people to hold dominion over large masses of people who before they know what has happened, have been ensnared by stifling liberal lunacy.

    • Part138

      And speaking of Fathers of Brides, one thing I don’t like is the “wear beige and stand in the corner.” saying about what a groom’s mother should do. Yes, she and the groom’s father often aren’t paying for the wedding, but still, why can’t she be as public and have as good a time as the bride’s mother? I know often the wedding is held in the bride’s hometown where she doesn’t know and/or is able to invite as many people, but still.
      One thing I really liked about my brother’s wedding in Russia is that my SIL’s mother never made it known what color her dress was to my mother before the wedding, so apparently that’s not as big a deal there than it sometimes is here.
      P.S. And calling dresses “Mother Of The Bride.” dresses. Why can’t they just be called “Mothers” dresses more often? (some companies do call them this) Yes, I know bridal shops will sell to groom’s mothers, but I guess that even though I’m not usually a fan of overly PC language, language that mentions one person and leaves out the other so blatantly annoys me. And sorry for going so long and going off the subject, but that phrase just reminded me of certain stuff all of a sudden (-:

    • Part138

      There are MANY ways to begin a wedding, including the Orthodox Jewish tradition of both the bride and groom being walked down the aisle by their parents, a tradition that many people of other religions have adapted. Also, in Catholic weddings, the bride is never “given away” even when her father walks her down the aisle. The bride and groom are giving each other to each other in the ceremony.

      • EqualityEd

        The funny thing is we’ve tolerated feminists hanging on to their hurts for far too long but only notice it’s a problem when focus is shifted to race. Racial disparities are far larger and more significant than gender disparities. The greater popularity of white women with white men is why women’s activism get’s disproportionate attention. As such it encourages the phony victims who make entire careers out of spreading sensational misinformation relative levels female victimization. This indirectly ends up further marginalizing those already on the margins whose under addressed needs aren’t served by the feminists narrative.

    • Paige Jackson

      There’s that aspect of it, and there’s the odd, nearly-pathological insistence that their congenital victimhood confers upon them some sort of unassailable moral superiority and strength, and deserves respect. You can get respect, OR you can be a perpetual victim, but not both.

    • EqualityEd

      When social justice was focused on the underclass there were far fewer phony victims. White social justice took the phony victim to the next level. Now we literally have people teaching others how to be victims in our universities.

      I might stand up for some suffering dis-empowered people in the world but even as a black male my particular needs don’t merit being a focus of social justice because I see others who are far worse off should come first. I don’t think high profile feminists know how to prioritize because they are used to being in it for themselves.

    I’m still waiting for the OMG OUTRAGE over the actress from Glee, Naya Rivera, saying fiance Big Sean “wears the pants in our relationship” and “will be an amazing husband”.

    How is that any different than what Candace Cameron said?

    Is it because Candace Cameron is white? Religious?

    Where are all the feminist tweets about how Naya Rivera is setting back women a billions years?

    “For now, Rivera is happy being the caretaker in their relationship. “Latinas are really great nurturers who are great to our men; we love hard and we love to cook,”

    “We Latinas are very independent and strong, so it’s even sweeter that I’ve found somebody who can let me out of that role for a minute.”

      Precisely.

      The idea that your virtues are based upon your ethnicity is every bit as racist, as offensive, as asinine and unrealistic, as any racist caricature of a group’s failings. As someone with Cherokee and Scottish ancestry, am I now supposed to assert that a)I’m great at tracking, but that b)I only buy really cheap equipment? The same people who have been yowping for a couple of generations about being whatever they want to be, have switched to insisting that we’re all slaves of genetics and biochemistry. I guess owning your free will makes for some uncomfortable moral accountability.

        “The idea that your virtues are based upon your ethnicity is every bit as racist, as offensive, as asinine and unrealistic, as any racist caricature of a group’s failings.”

        The idea that race and culture bear no relation to one another despite being primarily a product of specific groups sharing a history of living together is unrealistic. Yes it’s racists to presume you know everything about ‘X’ person when you don’t know their personal history but it is possible to speak of racial groups in cultural generalizations.

        “The same people who have been yowping for a couple of generations about being whatever they want to be, have switched to insisting that we’re all slaves of genetics and biochemistry.”

        I’ve heard far more racial existentialist talk from older anti racists (claims of their minority group being some how superior). That stuff has become progressively less popular. The basis for doing so was exploiting racial pride as a source of self esteem for downtrodden people. The ethnocentric pride works for a while but fades with assimilation. Some ethnic groups isolate themselves within the larger culture to keep that.

    • EqualityEd

      I don’t see anything wrong with her comments. Free to choose your own role means just that. Insisting all women live the way you want would be assigning gender roles. The outrage over a women living the way she wants isn’t necessary where as outrage against a social justice movement being exploited by the relatively well off sub group who shift focus to the concerns of a tiny elite is certainly justified. It’s no different than starting a charity for poor children only to find out the cash is being used to buy toys for rich kids.

      • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I didn’t say I had a problem with her comments.

        I have a problem with the double standard.

        Did you see where I mentioned Candace Cameron?

        And where did I insist on ANY woman living any particular way? What post are you even responding to??

  • bgbear_rnh

    I believe my shift from “liberal” to conservative started because it was so difficult to keep to keep in good standing with the lefties.

      Same here. If you are a white, straight male, you are constantly apologizing for existing every time you turn a corner with these people.

    • ked5

      mine was watching my fdr dem grandmother who only ever voted D, and victimhood embracing liberal mother. (who repeated their mantra of do as I say not as I do.). and since my grandmother was a flaming racist, it would have been priceless to watch her melt down over bozo. (but she died. then again, she may still have voted for him.) she about had heart failure because I voted for regean.

      Geez, there is SO much to take issue with in that hashtag, where do you even begin? On one hand, white liberal feminists are overdue to be called out on their obnoxious behavior. Conservative women know exactly the ways in which our white liberal counterparts for years have arrogantly assumed and insisted they are the only authentic voice of women. On the other hand, this thread isn’t even really about feminism. It’s just racism hiding behind the banner of feminism.

    Were any of these serious? Because I can’t tell.

    • EqualityEd

      IMO their inside jokes that mock white feminists for having relatively petty issues that they take far too seriously. For them any discomfort in life is treated as some form of oppression and that wasn’t the intention of social justice when it was in the hands of those who really needed.

  • Part138

    Ashley wouldn’t even BE HERE if it weren’t for a “shotgun wedding!” (when her mother was pregnant with her sister Wynonna, apparently she didn’t really love their father)

    • disqus_CR25ev2Z1s

      It’s actually worse that that. Ashley claims that her mother had gotten pregnant by a random neighborhood guy, and convinced her father that the baby was his even though they technically hadn’t had sex. Ashley spends a lot of time in her autobiography lamenting that her mother didn’t have access to an abortion clinic at that time.

      Despite her claims to be above it all, Ashley does seem to show the same love for family gossip that most Southern women have. Trouble is, we don’t print books about our dirty secrets. I’m surprised Ashley’s family still speaks to her.

    What gender put Obama in the White House twice based on a completely false premise? …Enough said.

      What false premise? The assumption he was going to be a radical leftist who would be unapologetic about pushing a progressive agenda…

      Yeah the left is still upset he’s not really that guy but there’s is always next year.

      • ked5

        cher’s whining (as are other progs) about bozo being a disappointment because he’s not radical ENOUGH for them.

    First it was the Jews, then Asians, then gays and now white women. Blacks from Malcolm X on forward have demonizing each and every group. Compare the violence and hatred spewed by black “civil rights” leaders and compare that to white feminists and ask yourself who needs to be scrutinized more. I have no love for white feminists but it wasn’t them that burned down Korean businesses all over this country, have been harassing Asian kids in Philly schools for 4 decades and counting, provoked the Freddy’s Fashion Mart massacre in which 7 young Hispanics died, and incited the worst hate crimes against Jews in US History (Crown Heights). Who did these and dozens of other similar civil rights violations against other oppressed minorities? Black “civil rights leaders”. Blacks also commit 50% of all hate crimes against women, 40% of all hate crimes against gays, and 80% (yes 80%) of all hate crimes against transgendered people. Yes, but let’s listen to blacks babble about white women. Being that white woman, Asians, whites, Jews, gays and cops make up 90% of the population but less than 3% of all murders of black folks it is obvious that the problem is everyone but black folks and the black “civil rights” lobby who should never get the same scrutiny as blacks dish out. Get it?

  • Danny Wheeler

  • $430485

    Black people are powerless. You know this because while they babble and rant about white women, gays, Asians, and Jews without any backlash the minute the minute anyone dare call out the long history of their KKK-like behavior free speech magically disappears. Pretty good for a race of people who claim to be powerless. The “people of color” vs “white women thing is a smokescreen to reality since it is black men and women who are responsible for most injustices against “people of color” not white women.

    • Derelictus

      Yes but Whitey made them do it, dontcha see? Cuz racism and slavery and stuff. Whitey’s evil hidden hand cause all black pathologies. No personal responsibility by blacks is required! What a convenient ideology, this anti-white ‘anti-racism’ is.
