Do Feminists Believe In Women?

I’m going to make a point about feminists and in the process Hillary Clinton, and I’m going to use the NFL to do it. How do you like them apples! No laughing.

One of the surest ways to know that something is NOT true about another person is if they feel compelled to tell you that it is true. In other words, the more someone assures you that they really be smart, the more obvious it becomes that they are not. You see this with actresses a lot, most of whom are dumber than dirt. What you will see is that suddenly everyone who knows them goes out of their way to tell you how brilliant this idiot is, e.g. Zoey Deschanel. When you see that, you can rest assured that they are rock stupid.

Other great examples include Robot Al Gore trying to prove to us that he is indeed the world’s greatest lover as he bragged about sex acts he’s never done... and missed his wife’s lips when he tried to publicly kiss her. Brrr. Taylor Swift trying to assure us that she’s not some idiotic slut is cute as well. Then there are the vast number of people you will run into who assure you that they are selfless and that they live their entire lives for their kids and husbands/wives. This used to be a favorite of my white trash clients who live off the largess of their friends and relatives and the federal government as they spend their days gambling or watching Jerry Springer and they make their kids clean their homes. I see a lot of this among the martyr-moms at Starbucks too... all without the slightest sense of the irony they are emitting.

Then you have the people who feel the need to tell you how competent they really are. The more they say it, the less likely it is to be true.

So what does this have to do with feminism? Well, I can’t help but notice that feminists won’t shut the hell up when it comes to assuring us that women are in fact competent and can do anything men can do. History and hu(wo)man nature suggests that the reason they keep saying this is that they don’t actually believe it. Yep.

And let me be clear before I am well hung in effigy, I’m not saying that women can’t do the things men can do, what I’m saying is that feminists apparently don’t believe that to be true. Indeed, this seems particularly true given that feminists start worrying that someone might speak the truth and shatter the facade. Indeed, look at the worry driving feminists now that Hillary’s critics might use a magic word to destroy her reputation for competence. Doesn’t that tell us they think her reputation is a fraud?

In fact, interestingly, you never hear this concern expressed about competent men. Why? Because there isn’t a single word that can undo the public’s view of a competent man’s competence. It is only proof that he isn’t competent that can harm his reputation. Heck, the same is actually true of genuinely competent women. I never see women like my doctor or Maggie Thatcher or that ugly chick who runs Germany worry that someone may call them entitled or secretive or suggest they are riding their husband’s coattails. Why? Because people respect competence and they don’t let opinion undo a well-earned reputation. So why do feminists think this is such a big deal unless they truly are worried about the competence of Hillary... and women?

Anyway, that brings me to the NFL.

Last week, the NFL announced that they had hired the first female referee. The reason for this is obvious. After the Ray Rice elevator experience and the ensuing explosion of bad PR, the NFL wants to be seen as pro-chick, so they hired one to be a referee.

Now, it just so happens that this women is an excellent college referee and has passed all of the NFL’s tests and classes with flying colors. In other words, she really is competent and likely does deserve the job. So imagine my (total lack of) surprise when the liberal/feminist world went nuts. First, they acted like it was a miracle that a woman had been handed such a position, even though there are many women working their way up the ranks already, and they acted like she had gone on some strange adventure. What a way to reinforce the idea that women should avoid fields dominated by men. “Hey little girl, wanna be the only non-peniser in a room full of nerds? Be a scientist!” Yeah, that will make them see that as the field for them.

In any event, more interestingly, the feminists and liberals all went out of their way to assure us that, by Godiva, a non-peniser could do this job just as competently as a peniser. Seriously, was there ever any question?

The job does not require feats of strength or long-distance urination. All you need to do is be able to run around the field (which she can do if she takes off the heels), stand in places where you won’t get hit except on truly rare occasions (admittedly Ray Rice’s girlfriend can’t pass this test but other women can... what? too soon?), drop a handkerchief, and know the NFL rulebook. So as long as you can run, litter, and quote the rulebook then anybody can do this job... except Romanians for obvious reasons.

There simply is no reason to think that women will be any less capable than men at doing this in the slightest: lacking a penis does not make one any less capable of blowing calls, mis-spotting the ball or helping the Patriots win games. In fact, I can’t think of a single thing NFL referees do that males do better than females. So why keep bringing it up like it’s a real question that she can do the job unless you have some doubts?

What’s even worse, once the chicky newsreaders got involved, they started asking this non-peniser questions like, “Will you wear makeup?” Uh... get the Favre out. Why in the world would a chick who wants to prove that women can do anything men can do start by asking questions like that which drive home the point that because she's a woman, the job isn't her primary concern when she does the job? Talk about setting up her reputation for failure!

This is what makes me laugh about feminists. They talk a good game at times: women be the same as men! But then they won’t stop hysterically assuring us that women are capable and competent and smart and all that stuff men are... just don’t use words to wipe out the facade they’ve created... oh, and can you wear a pink tutu on the field?

Good grief, Charlene Brown.

I think I have discovered something. Of all the people who occupy this planet, only feminists seem to think that women are inferior (well, and fundamentalists, but that’s for a different reason). The rest of us seem to think women are, like, you know... people.

Kit, I don't want to be seen as anti-Romanian, but you know how it is. ;-)

"lacking a penis does not make one any less capable of blowing calls, mis-spotting the ball or helping the Patriots win games."

That is true.

AndrewPrice said...

I see that as a truism, but apparently feminists have their doubts.

In all seriousness, it's been amazing watching all these idiots wring their hands about this WOMAN who has joined the ranks of NFL officials and how, by God, she can do anything a man can do!!! (we hope).

To me, this is ridiculous. There's zero reason to worry about her gender and doing so just suggests insecurity.

Andrew....Sort of like female sportswriters. It doesn't take a weightlifter to pick up a pen and write trash about the local (male) athletic club. So now we have a few female sportswriters. Okay.

For fairness sakes, where are the men who write about the WNBA? If there are any, are they allowed in the locker rooms after games to interview the female athletes on their deep thoughts about current events? You know, like the female sportswriters get to hang out in the men's locker room after a game and interview the athletes (Tom Brady) after a big game. It wasn't "fair" to the female writers to be not allowed in the men's locker room, yet we can't have male writers in the female locker room. The poor dears. Why a man might see them showering and changing out of their uniforms! Oh the horror!

I just think common sense has gone out the window when it comes to "feminism" and the howls of protest on what a woman should be "allowed" to do versus men. If a woman can make it through USMC Infantry OCS then go for it. (As they have and continue to try yet still can't make it past the first week)

Once this woman ref gets run over by Ndomukuh Suh you will hear the calls that he did it on purpose because he hates women refs.

If she wants to take that chance, then by all means bring it on.

Whenever a woman makes it a point to identify herself as a feminist, I generally ignore her. People who can't live without labels are pretty boring and annoying. Show me what you are; don't tell me. Then I'll decide, thank you.

Okay, you already have and I totally agree. Let's call it "The View Effect". The tv chat show The View was originally marketed as "hard news [as in REAL journalism] from the women's perspective". I was excited until I watch a few shows...fashion, hair and makeup tips etc. Seriously??

I get so frustrated with "feminists" today because they don't want to compete equally on an equal playing field. Now that there are women being integrated into combat position like the special forces, there is high skepticism and fear that they will lower standards just to appease the feminists (and even more so if Hillary is Pres.)LINK Even women are concerned. Really we don't want women just for the sake of having women in these roles. There ARE women who are just as qualified and can fill these roles. And since they don't accept all men for these positions, they shouldn't do that with women either.

The best example (and why I have a permanent red spot on my forehead) for this was the VMI/Shannon Faulkner fiasco in the early '90's. Dearest Shannon fought in court for years to be admitted to Virginia Military Academy under Title IX as it was a publicly funded state institution. I was excited actually that finally someone was taking this on and I followed it with acute interest.

It was Shannon's dream to go to VMI and she won the opportunity after a lengthy court battle! YEY strike a blow for women everywhere! We won...well kind of. Shannon was kind of the Moses of VMI Title IX. You see, dearest Shannon did not spend all those years training hard and long to qualify for entrance like any young man would have to do. She sat on her fat ass eating Doritos and doing weepy-eyed interviews on the injustice of it all and demanding that she should get in because Title IX should make it so. She lasted 4 hours...yes, that's HOURS. It was the most embarrassing thing I had ever witnessed and spoke volumes to me about the up and coming entitlement generation...that's when I ceased rally for "feminist" causes.

Oh, btw, my grandmother was Romanians, so...;-Pbpbpbpbppb

My best friend who is a tiny former ballerina knows more about sports and statistics that most men I know. Btw, I saw a short interview with this woman who is the first NFL ref and she's tough. And it was insulting that they didn't ask her about her qualifications, just about hair and makeup. I think it's great, but I am sure in the heat of the moment the players will only see black and white stripes as she is putting her hair underneath her cap and will look like all the other referees.

AndrewPrice said...

Ah... I just paid my taxes and mailed them off. What a great feeling to get brutally sodomized so Obama can waste my money on vacations with his pet Klingon. Grrr.

AndrewPrice said...

Bob, I'm all for letting anyone do whatever the are qualified to do. And there are quite a few female refs at the college level who do well, so this is a non-issue to me... but not to feminists.

AndrewPrice said...

Writer X, What I find amazing is that almost no one doubts that women can do pretty much anything anymore... except feminists. And when women do go into new fields, it's interesting to me that the women themselves almost never ask for special accommodations, but the feminists looking to piggy back on them do.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, Sorry to wind you up!

On the ref, she is tough. She seems quite capable to me. And I think I saw the same interview because I was floored when one of the first questions asked by the female reporter was about whether or not she could wear makeup. WTF?! How about asking her for her qualifications or something like that.. something to show how impressive she is!! No. Instead she asks about makeup and then she asks, "There are lots of people who think a woman can't do this job, how do you feel about that?" Really? What an embarrassing interview.

On your friend, I know a lot of women are really into sports and know a lot more than most of the men I know.

I remember Faulkner. That was embarrassing. I had a chance to talk with one of the first women to get through the US Air Force Academy and she was furious about the whole thing. She was furious that the feminists were demanding changes to make it easier on women and she was furious that Faulkner proved to be a bit of a fraud.

I feel like the NFL headline needs "The Onion" treatment: NFL hires first openly female referee

Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States (1861- 1865)

Born: February 12, 1809 Died: April 15, 1865

Succumbed to his wounds- received after being shot at Ford's Theater on evening of April 14- at 7:22:10 A.M... 150 years ago today

"Now, he belongs to the ages."
(-Edwin Stanton, U.S. Secretary of War, 1862- 1868)

May he continue to rest in peace

Rustbelt said...

Also...just found this amazing colorized picture of Lincoln.
The look on his face just recalls the words:

"With malice toward none, with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan — to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations."

-Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, That's great! LOL!

AndrewPrice said...

Rustbelt, So he died on tax day?

Rustbelt said...

Andrew, April 15th is just an all-around evil day for Americans!

BevfromNYC said...

Do you think they did that on purpose setting Tax Day on April 15?

AndrewPrice said...

Rustbelt, Yes it is. Yes it is, my friend.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, It wouldn't surprise me in the least. I'm sure there's some significance to the date!

Rustbelt said...

Well, here's something that should lessen the evil -if only a little bit.
