How feminists with poor mental health are taught to demand intellectual immunity
Using twitter to criticize feminists and compare them to creationists has been successful so far, in less than a week after opening the account, they had already developed intense emotions unrelated to love for me (I even got “blockboted” or mass blacklisted on the fourth day). They certainly make noise but that was intended from the beginning, radical religions always try to censor dissent. For them, it is heresy to think & disagree.
See, their reactions are not new to atheists, due to my line of business, for the last 10 years I have been walking the same beaten path, having conversations with radical religious people both in person and online. After a few years I started writing down things many of them seemed to coincide saying, a shared memorized almost verbatim script of sorts. Things like the problems and motivations Islamic, Creationists, Mormons and many other interviewed religions shared. With the most fervent, most radicalized ones nearly always displaying a partial disclosure/indication of past of sexual abuse, substance abuse or high impulsiveness. The more intense their mental illness were, the more radical the person had become. Some cases were sad, such as the recovering alcoholic that had to close his eyes and pray intensely in mid-stride when he accidentally saw an ad related to alcohol that triggered his intense fear-looking compulsion, almost like a sunken ship survivor holding on to the last floating piece of debris. Other cases were just frustrating because the person was clearly depressed or had expressed suicidal thoughts and/or behavior, their religion alone was not making the cut modern medicine could have done if combined with their faith as emotional support. Many of the people I spoke to gave me the impression they stayed with religion because it gave them an emotional support base, a community of sorts but not because they had a choice, for many of them religion was their last straw before self destruction. The desperate need for emotional support seemed to drive them to join their respective cult then it became an addiction. When I talk to feminists online and in person I see a similar broken emotional landscape, the more intense their mental illnesses, the more likely they are to have become a radicalized feminist with a higher addiction to false emotional support through feminism. And once again, this came with the same frustrating impression of feminism being used as an imaginary panacea, a “catch all” to heal all of their very real mental illnesses.
Case in point, I recently came across Sarah Moglia, a twitter user whose T-shirt joke backfired then was storified.
She (predictably) did not control her emotions, got very upset/offended and continuously defended Rebecca Watson & her cash cow site Skepchick.
Sarah defended Watson almost too fiercely and, as expected, there was a connection, a conflict of interest. See, Sarah Moglia is a columnist for Skepchick. After screening her articles for emotional tone & level of radicalism, I came across her self-confession-therapy-like piece.
In this essay Sarah talks about her past, depression, references to non consensual sex, rape references, loneliness and attempts to motivate herself. As with religious people with unresolved mental illnesses, Sarah seems to have put all her faith in a movement to help her cope with her real problems with imaginary solutions.
Predictably, I saw this young woman as vulnerable. That guilt trap of advertised vulnerability almost worked and this article was almost never written. The words “guilt trap” or rather “guilt tripping” were the deciding factor to write this piece.
See, the fact of her having suffered from her mental illness does not mean she is exempt from criticism. She cannot be mentally ill and a healed person at the same time. She cannot put both her good and flawed thoughts as an adult woman out on the Internet and expect no accountability. That is the guilt trap of feminism, they blatantly advertise vulnerability then guilt trip you to avoid intellectual honesty & accountability. Sarah is an adult woman with the same number of responsibilities and rights any adult male or female should have but feminism has trained her to mine her own self-pity in exchange for intellectual immunity. In other words, feminists with mental illnesses are perfect “untouchables” or “lepers” to go out and spread their religion. If they encounter resistance, they guilt trip you until you pity enough to avoid them or until they brainwash you.
But if the guilt fails, they accuse you of being a misogynist. (picture packs of blind Jehovah’s witnesses high on acid knocking on doors with hammers & anybody that does not open is gently hammered to a pulp as a “satanist” )
They bet on guilt and pity so that an adult is treated with the distortion field of toddlerhood. Sarah herself is a human shield used by feminists. (yes, If you were truly mentally ill, you would not be allowed to be online to begin with dear hypocrite Sarah)
Religious people also try to guilt trip you when they want to get away with their scams & delusions, alcoholic or not, depressed or not, feminists or not, criminal or not, they are nearly always adults playing the victim. Similar to the classic priest that incessantly guilt trips you with “he died for your sins!” until you tithe handsomely, because, well…they guilt trip you until you end up believing you owe them one Jesus and since they don’t make them anymore…you tithe.
Guilt tripping does not work that well online for Sarah, if she expected me not to point out her flawed thinking just because she have suffered from one/several mental illness, she is mistaken. Sarah is not a child anymore, she is an adult woman putting her ideas online. Contrary to feminist dogma her ideas do not grant her (or anybody) intellectual immunity because nobody is exempt from criticism, especially online. Sarah does not understand our time as vulnerable ignorant children has long passed.
We all suffer in life Sarah, plenty of people have it worse than you, you are not a child with terminal cancer or a child war survivor, you are just a woman that refuses to be an adult because of your addiction to self-pity.
The reality of life is that we all fall in order to learn how to pick ourselves up.
Feminism falsely teaches women like Sarah to fall & stay on the floor begging for someone’s pity to pick them up. If she did not believe pity empowered her, she would not have written her past suffering with the Internet as her hostage+therapist.
Here are 3 lies the religion of feminism teaches human shields like Sarah on a daily basis
“I deserve everything because I suffered!”
Not true. Plenty of people suffer much more than Sarah, Rebecca & whole Skeptchick staff.
Unlike countless women, Sarah & Rebecca grew up in a first world country, in a fully urbanized city, with paid education, overnourished and a roof over their heads. Compare this to little girls in Afghanistan who are born into bronze-age equivalent villages, without any hope of education, malnourished and often enslaved and sold shortly after birth. Sure, no one has it worse than those pudgy Bostonian princesses.
Sarah and Rebecca know these contrasting facts about their lives versus the lives of women of the 3rd world are not convenient for Skepchick members and for western feminists in general. They have to lie to achieve their quotas. They have to lie to their readers by spreading propaganda conveying the message “women in Boston suffer just as much as women in Afghanistan, be afraid, very afraid” then, they ask for donations. Their tactics constitute the manipulation of the very real suffering of a collective group of women abroad for western personal gain. However, the second lie is the deepest most blatant one. Why? Because Sarah & many western feminists lie to themselves daily without even noticing.
How? Well, they have to lie by telling themselves daily their narcissism is compassion.
When they write pieces like Sarah’s about themselves & what their future selves would tell their past selves with the excuse of “helping others who may relate” it still is pure narcissism with hints of sci-fi. Sarah’s piece in simple English reads pretty much like this;
“I suffered, I suffered, I suffered, people were mean! & I suffered, I’d like to grow up & be strong but I suffered so much. Did I tell you I suffered?”
If feminism & Sarah were a foreign movie, we would hear an incomprehensible foreign loud language but the subtitles would repeatedly say “I suffered”
Sarah does not realize that in order to help others heal we must first heal ourselves. Suffering is not a badge, suffering is a part of life, of learning and of healing. Sarah’s problem is that she does not compare her suffering with the greater suffering of others, she is the only one that counts. Sarah & her sisters fervently believe their narcissism is not their fault. Sarah is a good example the current state of feminism, they have a widespread mental health problem retooled as “the female right to be pitied”.
Sarah has not healed her PTSD & depression, she instead found a cult (feminism) the cult tells her nothing is her fault, the cult then presents to her the supreme catch-all escape goat (The Patriarchy) then Sarah’s state becomes one of permanent victimhood as the patriarchy takes all accountability and agency from her life. Every interaction with other women may include hints at their shared oppression and together they stand in front of the mirror of their own compassion. Unlike feminism, the purpose of real therapy sessions is to become less dependent on the sessions themselves as the medications and a healthier life style help the patient. But just like religion, feminism is too eager to proclaim itself the “be-all solution” through the pontification of perpetual victimhood. Feminists like Sarah are praised for displaying the deformed casts of their plastered broken emotions while wearing perpetual crutches made of rape memories. Unlike a fractured limb, their fractured emotions and their crutches are seen as “badges of honor”. Their mantra reads “It is very OK to be a perpetual victim”
The reality is that it is not “OK” to be a perpetual victim. The longer you pity yourself the longer you will remain blind to someone else’s greater suffering. If you are the only victim that counts you will fail to see there are people with chronic or terminal diseases with conditions much worse than Sarah’s depression.
The problem is that feminism is quite happy to keep women in this infant-like intellectual limbo, they never resolve their past trauma, they loiter in the swamps of self pity perpetually staring at their narcissistic mirrors, just like Sarah. Their cult of women is always dedicated to telling each other how “oppressed” they are while patting each other on the back & saying how great a job they are doing going nowhere. The religion of feminism uses you, swamped narcissistic women, as cannon fodder for donations. They take your mental health problems and put them on display on a corner to guilt trip people into paying, like an addicted prostitute never allowed to heal and try another occupation with feminism as a pimp.
“I am right because I suffered!”
After feminism effectively pimps women’s past suffering & hooks them to the opium of their own compassion, they remain enslaved to this group-think of female toddlerhood. The behavior they show online and offline is that of a person that firmly believes they have been given a really “bad hand of cards in life”. That someone is “always out get them”. Let that sink in, someone is “always out get them” which is, in and of itself the kind of idea that would normally prevent you from even getting a job (during the initial screening of job applicants to weed out the psychos). Life is not “cards”, if anything, life has been magnanimous with those of us who can type on a computer. Life and the world does not owe any of us anything. The world does not even owe any of us an apology for what happened to any of us in the past. Believing the world owes you anything is a tacit admission of narcissism. But when you are a feminist like Sarah or Rebecca Watson, the delusion of narcissism is encouraged and when you add the second mental disorder of sociopathy to the mix, you effectively have an often young hateful woman that religiously believes the world owes her an apology and the same world is always against her.
These young priestesses of the narcissistic cult of victimhood have to be kept permanently fearful for them to be marketed effectively as a bargaining chip for donations. It suffices to look at Skepchick’s traffic and its several branches to see this. But most importantly, we should look at the pervasive victimhood in the vast majority of Skeptchick articles. Their articles are a narcissistic victim’s opium. Guess what? Rebecca Watson is laughing her way to the bank daily selling ideological opium. (my guess is that Sarah’s bank account pales when compared with Rebecca’s as Sarah is just a mildly useful pawn).
The worst thing is that this is a self perpetuating addiction, the feminist victims stay victims because they are incompetent at anything else. For someone whose sole competence is to play the victim, they become even more addicted as they get older.
Suffering does not warrant us anything if we do not learn from it. Western feminists leader like Watson are too comfortable lying to their followers because they use them as cattle, as bargaining chips, as human shields for pity, to ask for donations.
But if we look closely at the backgrounds of the writers of Skepchick we find they are usually western, brought up in affluent neighborhoods with education and housing paid by their families. These westerners, often white privileged women turn a blind eye at their 3rd world, darker skinned often in abject poverty counterparts only to point their western fingers to “privileged white men”
Hypocrisy takes many shapes and when feminists get offended by pointing at these facts we can see we are on the right track.
And adult demanding to be “empowered” solely because he/she suffered does not help anyone. If suffering was a currency, the third world would be paved in gold.
“I am right because I am offended”
Feminism claims intellectual immunity on the imaginary grounds of being “offended” just like religions. Throughout my interactions with Creationists radicals, Muslim radicals, and Feminist radicals I have noticed 3 points theirs & many other religions share in common
1) Their religion is the only valid one
2) They consider all the other religions invalid
3) If you tell them all the other religions use 1 and 2 identically. They “Get offended” & end the discussion.
“Getting offended” has no intellectual value and should no longer be used, that rule applies to me, to you, all feminists and everyone else because “Getting offended” is the quickest way to claim you won an argument by lying.
Anybody can misuse the words “Getting offended” to either stop the other party from asking questions or just to flee reasoning.
It is so burned and misused that it no longer means anything because it never did to begin with, anybody that claims to be offended by an idea may as well be lying. When you tell religious radicals “Getting offended” is not a point or an argument but just a word to stop the dialogue, that they have become addicted to those meaningless words, then, an incredible paradox takes place in their solipsistic heads.
The greatest irony is that when confronted with their addiction to get offended, religious people get offended…again.
Just like their religious counterparts on twitter, Sarah & Rebecca attempt to silence the other party by wasting their 140 characters with references to being offended. When you start giving “offended” people a free pass, what they really get is a very costly exploit, a loophole in the system; they get intellectual immunity.
I do not have such immunity neither does anybody else. I want to be debated, criticized & I welcome personal attacks because I have no right to get offended, same applies to everyone else. But spouting nonsense without any accountability is what feminism and radical religions blatantly encourage. It is dishonest, manipulative and has no intellectual value. Just like feminism itself.
Sarah Rebecca and all the Skepchick members of the feminist victimhood, please understand this feminist dogma cannot heal your addiction to self-pity, self compassion, your PTSD & depression because feminism is not a cure for any mental health problems, it is a perpetual continuation of them. We adults should care about preventing the suffering of children & future generations. You are not children anymore.
Important Note for Sarah, Rebecca, FTB, A+, Skepchicks & all feminists:
Please note I do not care about your suffering because you are not children anymore.
Don’t come to the internet for therapy, it is as useful as fixing a hangnail with a chainsaw
