The First Rule of Feminism

Barb Wire

Feminism is the belief that men are entirely useless, except when men are destructive and evil. If you think any man ever had any skill, knowledge or virtue that entitled him to be treated with courtesy and respect, you are not a feminist. According to feminism, all that is good and worthy in human history — all important accomplishments, every act of courage and kindness — has been done by women. Anyone who believes otherwise has been brainwashed by the patriarchal myth that males have imposed on society as “history” and so-called “science.”

Such are the esoteric doctrines of feminism, the c0re ideology that inspires their endless complaints about inequality and oppression. By proclaiming that they have a monopoly of wisdom and virtue, feminists thereby empower themselves to tell the rest of us what we are allowed to say and what we are permitted to think. If at any time you make any statement that is not consistent with feminist ideology, you will be vilified and insulted, shouted down by the feminist mob that exercises a heckler’s veto over public discourse. Totalitarian movements require totalitarian tactics, and the foremost goal of feminists is to silence those whom they aim to enslave or destroy. See for yourself:


  • Shut up and listen
  • Ask me, don’t tell me
  • Prepare to be wrong
  • Call fellow men out on problematic behaviour
  • Never dismiss the lived experiences of women
  • Do not attempt to take a leadership role

Feminists who say their movement is about “equality” are lying. Feminism is a movement about power — absolute and unlimited power — and therefore the first rule for men in feminist movements is, SHUT UP. (That list of rules has been “liked” or “reblogged” more than 20,000 times on since it was posted in April 2013.)

Trending: Will Oregon Voters Defund Abortions?

The three principles of feminism are selfishness, dishonesty and hate. If feminism had a fourth principle, it would be more hate.

I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding . . . time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness. . . . I don’t want a baby.. . . Nothing will make me want a baby. . . . This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion.
Amanda Marcotte, March 2014

Feminism’s fanatical hatred empowers feminist dishonesty. They usually try to pretend that “choice” isn’t about hating babies, but the question remains: If feminists don’t hate babies, why do they want to kill them?

To which their answer is, SHUT UP.

We cannot be permitted to speak the truth about feminism. Facts and logic are tools of the patriarchy, and ordinary “common sense” — well, that’s just an obsolete male-supremacist myth!

A movement that systematically excludes honest, sane and intelligent people will tend to become a paranoid hive of fools. This brings us to “Ask a Radfem,” a Tumlbr blog that describe its purpose thus:

This blog exists to bridge a gap between people with honest questions about radical feminism, and radical feminists with something to say.

Let’s meet a few of the site’s contributors, shall we?

  • Ash is a fat, creative writer, lesbian radical feminist from Australia who aspires to be a women’s health nurse. She is a gender abolitionist, is anti-kink culture and pro the destruction of the porn and prostitution industries – but supports porn actresses and prostitutes themselves.
  • Cammy is a white-passing American woman from a Puerto Rican household. A bisexual radical feminist in the Southern U.S., she focuses on lesbians, childfreedom, gender and sex industry abolition, religious apostates and the poor. She is an atheist and a survivor of trauma from emotional abuse, molestation and rape dealing with C-PTSD, anxiety and depression. Past experiences include BDSM, polyamory, self-harming, abortion, an abusive marriage, Christianity and Islam.
  • Blossom is an outreach worker from Canada. Her passion lies in harm reduction, outreach, & housing initiatives with people experiencing addiction & homelessness. She is a de-transitioned lesbian who lived “as male” from 2004-2011 and has experienced the process of transition and eventual de-transition with the help of mental health professionals and family. . . . She is also a former webcam girl and behind-the-scenes employee of various adult websites. She focuses on gender abolition, mental health, & lesbian activism.
  • Lauren (Lo) is a 17-year-old white-passing Chicana from Southern California. Her career aspiration is to work against internet crimes against children for either local or federal law enforcement. She identifies as bisexual and is open about her struggle with anxiety disorder.
  • R4df3m is a no-nonsense fat, disabled, bisexual radical feminist from Portland, Oregon who does not mince words. A former sex worker and abuse survivor, she speaks primarily about the harms of the sex industry and the realities of sex based oppression. As a bisexual radical woman in a heterosexual marriage she addresses the unique intersections of straight passing privilege and the abuse inherent to heterosexual relationships.

It’s an all-star lineup of feminist kooks. You could not assemble such a crew of weirdos by accident. The pattern is not random. Crazy movements attract crazy people. Here is one of the more seemingly sane contributors to “Ask a Radfem”:

Alisha M. is a feminist blogger, writer, musician, and poet, from the Southern United States. She is focused on gender abolition, women’s media, health, spirituality and activism for women with mental illness.

Feminism = “activism for women with mental illness.” Thanks for the concise definition, Alisha! Now let’s get to the big question:

Can/how a male promote radical feminism?
Listening. Really listening and being involved. Listening. This is something I’m trying to explain to my male friends who by some stroke of “altruism” really want to help be better allies. Just listen. Listen with empathy and emotions, be human, be vulnerable . . . accept silence on your part and accept sometimes being wrong.

In other words, SHUT UP.

Or applaud the feminist’s courage for killing her baby:

I couldn’t bring another monster into the world. We already have enough enemies as it is.

That’s from an article with the empowering feminist headline, “I Aborted My Baby — Because it was a Boy.”

Feminism is organized insanity. Why be merely crazy, when you can turn your mental illness into a political movement?
