Never try to appease feminists

This current kerfuffle seems to be about some uppity nerd whom Big Feminism has had to deal with. The poor fellow is a feminist-friendly professor at MIT, but that has not saved him from feminist abuse.

Some people have said, and I think they have a point, that the anger directed at this poor fellow is due to the contempt felt by many women, even feminist women, for weak “beta” males; including perhaps especially “male feminists”. If any of their beta minions expresses any kind of reservations about feminism, he has to be punished. I explained what I think is going on here:

“Women policing the hierarchy.”

That post is one of my most popular ever. The basic idea is that women do not want “unworthy” men to understand what women really find attractive. Feminists are no exception. In fact, they may be the worst of all in this regard. Basically, they want to make sure that icky, beta men are kept in their place; even MIT professors.

Anything less than full compliance with feminist demands is unacceptable to feminists. They cannot be appeased. Appeasers give themselves away as weak “beta” males, and that just increases feminist contempt and fury directed at such men.

The only feasible response to feminist demands is NO. It is the only response they respect.

Feminists exist in a zero-sum mental world. They are motivated by a desire for power. They only respect power. They are like most women, only more so, in this regard.

Women are feudal. They want men to be barons to serve OR peasants to look down upon. They want men as superiors or inferiors. Not equals.

This comment I made on a recent post is also relevant.

I was, and am, quite a nerd myself. For some reason I escaped nerd hell. Of course, in my day, we did not speak of “nerds” or “geeks”. The words were not in use; and it seemed to me that there was less of the modern idea that a man with intellectual, especially scientific, interests had to be lacking in normal male attributes. In any case, being born in Australia in the 1950s probably meant that I escaped most of the damaging feminist propaganda, which seems to be designed these days to make young men feel guilty about being young men with normal desires.

This comment from “Pat” at the first link above is very interesting. I was lucky that I did not get the full load of nonsense this bloke did, although it all seems to have ended happily for him. Eventually.

About the silliest thing I was ever told by teachers at my all-boys Catholic school was that “girls talk about polite boys more than about the sporting ones”. Which might have been sort of true, back then. But apart from that, I was brought up to be proud of being a boy and potential man. Thank God.

    Steve Sailer covers the issue at TakiMag:

    Steve seems to have woken up to the Woman Question of late. He has always been more interested in race, until recently.

    This quote from Steve Sailer’s article is especially poignant and I believe accurate:

    “But the more sensitive sort of modern young male assumes women wouldn’t be saying all these horrible things about men if they weren’t true. (I mean, nobody would make up a story about being gang raped on shattered glass, right?) And he finds that terribly discouraging.

    Because they are better at thinking about ideas than about people, nerds are particularly prone to misinterpreting women by taking what they say at face value. Nerds don’t know much about what women like, so they use logic, which fails.”

    I don’t get why so many people always want to appease these filthy harridans. They’re nothing more than an entire group of spoiled brats throwing a tantrum when they don’t get what they want.

    Of course, the mistake beta males make is elementary. They engage with feminists and their “ideas”. Feminists do not have the interests of most men in mind. They certainly don’t want beta males to know the truth.

    As soon as a man enters into a dialogue on these topics with a feminist, he has lost.

      Yup. That’s because a feminist thinks emotions trump logic, reason (i.e., reality) and think only of themselves.

        It is because they want sensitive men to worry rather than act. It is sad to see all those nerdy guys analysing the issue on websites instead of ignoring feminist quibbling and acting decisively.

    Being a male feminist is a ticket to Crazytown.

    Most women seem to prefer that you don’t pander.
