Profiles in femininity: No. 2 in a new series

Femininity on the dark side:

Harley Quinn:

“She becomes fascinated with the Joker while interning at Arkham and volunteers to analyze him. She falls hopelessly in love with the Joker during their sessions, and she helps him escape from the asylum more than once. When the Joker is returned to Arkham after a battle with Batman, the sight of her badly injured patient drives Harleen insane, leading her to quit her psychiatrist job and don a jester costume to become Harley Quinn, the Joker’s sidekick.”





Inspired by this piece of politically correct stupidity.

  1. Excusing female evil and irresponsibility. A feminist tradition. Women are ‘independent’ but never responsible for their actions. Well, NO— she is responsible.


    • The citation I gave is to an astonishingly silly piece. It makes the usual jump to male abuse of females, although as one commenter at least pointed out, women are plenty abusive in intimate relationships too.

      Also, women are often complicit in so-called “abusive” relationships, and seek out such men. I don’t know enough about the Harley Quinn character, and she is only a comic book villainess, but from what I can see, she made her own moral choices.


      • Yes, she seeks this relationship out, encourages it, benefits from it both explicitly and complicitly, and supports the evil done.

        There are even legal responsibility for supporting a crime, yet here they excuse it. The hypocrisy of SJW’s puts them beneath contempt.

      • I am torn between finding it ridiculous that the article takes comic book characters seriously and wants to draw serious implications from them and – on the other hand – wanting to point out that this female character is behaving exactly like many women behave in real life: namely, following a charismatic man wherever he goes.

        I know very little about the character, but what little I have read and viewed on her backstory suggests that she is at best a “willing victim”.

        What SJWs cannot tolerate is that any woman or even female character could act out of less than “progressive” motivations. It is as if no women went to see the Fifty Shades of Grey movie (which is still on sale to the local housewives here at the supermarket, by the way.)
