Feminists are desperately anxious to prove that women are as strong as capable as men. Clearly they are nagged by a fear that women may NOT be as strong and as capable as men.

Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality.

If our society had no social problems at all, the leftists would have to INVENT problems in order to provide themselves with an excuse for making a fuss.

No. They're woeful strawman arguments built around a generalisation of a small number of ignoramuses in their respective "movements".

I would agree with those statements if you tweaked the terminology around a bit but currently they're far too broad

No, generalised statements about a diverse group are never accurate.
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

I agree with the statements but also agree that they are a bit too broad
Then again I often judge entire groups of people based on just a few people within that group because #YOLO
I have nothing important to say

I can't say all those things are true for all those groups of people. For the loudest mouthed ones though, the real talking cunts, there's some truth in there.

Statement number 3 is a little weak compared to the other two. It can only be answered with speculation. The other two by observation.

1) In the academic world, there is a tendency to attack or dismiss any research that suggests sex differences in some psychological things. Basing feminism on the idea that men and women are indistinguishable is a bad idea (its vulnerable to being falsified)- it has to be uncoupled from the moral claim that people shouldn't be treated unfairly on the basis of their sex which is closer to what feminism should be centered on.


2) People on the left value equality (they define fairness as equality rather than proportionally like the right) and might not have great opinions of things they see as having unfairly dominated other groups of people. Which is sort of true of some of those things listed, but that diminishes the value of things like western civilization, which has been hugely good for the species too. Rationality (the faculty of reason) is a tremendous thing too- but can be used to lay out what's wrong with emotional/moralistically charged arguments from any part of the political spectrum.

3) in general the left is more utopian than the right- society is perfectible. Now, there's nothing wrong with progress that makes less people suffer, but the grain of truth here is that this thinking is subject to mission creep and you can end up with absurdities that dilute the meanings of words: "cultural genocide" "structural violence".

So, there's a wee bit of truth to those statements, even if they are phrased in language aimed to cause fights- many people will tune out after seeing ideas attributed to "the leftists".

All bullshit, but I do agree with the sentiment that there is a small slice of the liberal pie chart that lives to be outraged at whatever they can. There is a culture centered around being offended, we often make fun of it on tumblr.

The second statement is one I find all the time with people in my life. I work with a lot of white religious businessmen, and they often see the current civil rights movement as an agenda to bring the white man down rather than raise the minorities up.

Those are some really broad generalizations there.

i found these while skimming the manifesto of the unabomber. i thought removing them from their original anarcho-primitive context was kinda funny.
