Emma Watson, Feminist

Emma Watson, Feminist, is asking men to help women achieve equality. This is the best they can do? Asking an actress. What deep, dramatic roles has she played that exemplify the plight of the modern, oppressed woman. Wait, I know one. Super strong feminist here...



I award 10,000 points to the house of Gryffindor!

So if they're actually equal, why do they need men to help them?

We need more Emma West, less Emma Watson.

O.T.newsflash!!!

ok, i thought i'd beat the full-court press on this one,as it's sure to be alt-right topic of choice for the next month or so. I mean, this guy make Omar Thornton look like a featherweight.

But remember: he's an outlier of a black man!!!!!

I try to explain this to people all the time. If all people are equal, than how did one come to dominate the other? 2=2. Two will always equal two. Two will never be greater than two.

This is the opening salutation at occidentalist.com, which is rather obvious but nonetheless routinely overlooked when applied to the assessment of personal morality and the mediated treatment of 'social equality':

"The end logic of equality is the overcoming of all life boundaries, all distinctions, and all separations until Singularity or death"

It's really a case of people being misled at times by following the rhetoric too literally; or 'literally by hte letter,' you might say.
As simple as that could be, i really think that's the operative problem at times; people get on this literal logic trail ----- and then stay on it, even though they sorta know they're being absurd or askew from what's really right and part of their practical sense of mission.

I see evidence of this with people i work with, well-intentioned people who don't know how to reconcile their personal contradictions with their work convictions; usually, these are 20-to-early-30-something folk, usually women, always white.
