So Which Way Do You Want It?

Sharing Options

Cornelius Van Til argued that unbelieving societies alternate between rationalism and irrationalism, that unbelieving thought displays a rationalist/irrationalist dialectic, which is quite true. But in advanced stages of cultural decay it should be observed that this dialectic turns into an oscillating fan set on high.Feminism Difficult

Examples are plentiful — in fact, it is hard to find things that aren’t examples — but this morning let us consider some of the erratic standards flowing from feminism. Feminism began by insisting that women could do anything a man could do, and has ended by saying that women can’t do anything that their grandmothers used to do routinely. “I am woman, hear me roar” has turned into “I am needy bucket, hear me whine.”

Feminism demands that we tell ourselves hard truths about the relationship between the sexes, and simultaneously demands that no woman ever be told the truth about anything.

Examples range from the comparatively trivial to the very serious. A standing assumption appears to be that if any woman posts a picture of herself online in some godforsaken getup, a minimum of three of her friends will tell her that she is “gorgeous,” “smokin’ hot,” and so on. This is done for two reasons. The first is the same kind of thinking that drives awards ceremonies in Hollywood. If everyone gets called a genius, then it is just a matter of time before it is everybody’s turn to be called a genius. The second reason this happens is that it is expected. Refusal to do so indicates that you must have a deep-seated antipathy toward women generally.

So we have gotten to the point where misogyny could be defined as telling a woman the truth. The other half of this is that we are up against a culture-wide demand that we call the most manifest and obvious lies “the truth.” If anyone actually tells, you know, the actual truth, they will do their level best to destroy you.

But shouldn’t it be possible to think that for women to have a permanent silvery drip hanging from the bottom of their noses is not as fetching as everybody said it would be? And perhaps someone could think this because he has a higher view of what women were called to be than is currently being promoted? A man can hate feminism because of the vandalism it is perpetrating on feminine glory.

I said examples ranged from the trivial to the serious, but the same principle is driving all of it. Because “the truth” is off limits when it comes to speaking to and about women, we have the minor social evil of women in tight jean muffin tops thinking they’re cute. But we also have the rapidly hardening public dogma that women are suitable for combat roles — something Deuteronomy calls appalling (Dt. 22:5).

Someone might think I am being inconsistent here, because wouldn’t I want to defend the older, more chivalric order, when men deferred to women, and would not “speak the truth” to them, restrained by kinds of courtesies? Yes, I would, and it is not inconsistent. The “false” nature of “manners” — opening a door for a woman, as though she were incapable of it herself — was possible and healthy because the culture as a whole understood the truth about men and women. Because sexual roles were well-defined, the artificial nature of manners was no hypocrisy. But now people are demanding that we retain a hyper-inflamed respect for those same manners against the backdrop of an imbecilic understanding of male and female.

You know, if you really want to help bring about the end of feminism and re-establish the natural order of gender relations in the West, you would support Donald Trump, as he is one of very few public figures who exhibits anything resembling true masculinity. It’s possible that our society is on the verge of a “Fight Club moment,” where emasculated white men decide to swing the pendulum too far the other way, embracing hypermasculine and perhaps even violent behavior in order to reclaim what they’ve spent their entire lives having beaten out of them through fatherlessness, the media, schools,… Read more »

All it would take to end feminism, race baiting, and all the other white male shaming tactics employed by the left would be for white males to show the same in-group preferences that every other “protected class” currently does. Why do you think white men are so susceptible to white guilt? It’s because they know, deep down, that they truly do have the “power” to put an end to all this in a heartbeat.

Biblically speaking, men aren’t supposed to show in-group preferences for one another. They’re supposed to lay down their lives and risk their worldly goods for the women and children. Measuring ethics against “what every other protected class currently does” is the road to perdition. You might win the whole world but lose men’s souls.

You misunderstand. I’m not talking about white men engaging in violence or selfish, idolatrous living. I’m talking about them not allowing themselves to be cowed by evil, manipulative weaklings (like the left) in society. White men standing up for white culture would actually be very good for society as a whole, especially the women and children. It would lead to a higher standard of living and a return to moral sanity. Isn’t that what you want?

The problem being there is a contingent of white men who happen to believe the “evil manipulative weaklings” all share the same gender. Enter feminism and who can blame them?

Call me crazy if you like, but most women are going to be rather resistant to the idea of embracing a bunch of white knights who wish to save Western civilization by removing all power from those they perceive to be “evil and weak,” AKA women, minorities, and leftists.

I am puzzled by your associating Trump with true masculinity. All that bluster and rudeness suggest to me a man who is not secure about possessing a genuine masculine identity. I think of traits such as bravery, service to others, gentlemanliness (not ridiculing the handicapped, not making a woman’s cycles the subject of cheap shots), calm competence, sexual self-control, loyalty, fidelity to oaths–I am not seeing any of these in Trump.

Ben

Regarding the traits you mentioned, I believe he only fails to exhibit one, which is sexual self-control, based on his affairs (though I assume he’s not still engaging in that behavior). Certainly his willingness to put his life on the line is a sign of bravery and a service to others, seeing as how there’s no material gain for him to pursue the White House. He didn’t ridicule a handicapped person nor make fun of a woman’s menstrual cycle (“wherever” does not equal “vagina”). When has he broken an oath?
