I've been thinking what I should say

I'm in an odd mental place right now. See I've started reading Michael Moore's new book and re-aquainting myself with the logical left while at the same time I've just joined the LJ debate community and encountered exactly the sort of rabid nasty feminists that I spend my school days trying to duck.

Militant overblown feminism gets me really worked up. The things they propose just offend me and the fact that they do so with such righteousness and claim allegiance to the liberal principals I believe in...it's like salt in an open wound.

Abortion is a bad thing. How could anyone propose otherwise? It's not the wrong choice in every situation but it's not good that it has to happen. The idea that abortion is absolutely free of any and all moral claims upsets me. It upsets me further when people claim that partial birth abortion or abortion involving viable fetuses is morally acceptable., Just because it's in your body doesn't mean you have the absolute right to kill it, especially since in most cases you helped put it there. I'm pro-choice but that's pro-CHOICE not pro-abortion. Abortions are sometimes a neccesary evil, that doesn't make them non-evil.

Linked to that agenda is the complete deregulation of sexual activity until humans are no more restrained than boars or dogs in heat, mounting eachother anonymously in the street and then destroying their young if they can't handle them. Wait no, these "girls" would probably prefer the mythical Black Widow spider method of mating. Or the praying mantis style. Men are the neccesary evil in their world. And it extends elsewhere to. The destruction of achievements just because they were achieved by men. The socialization of the work place because women tend to choose lower paying fields. The decimation of the family. The ridicule of women who actually, you know, want to be WOMEN and not just men with unfortunate breasts and uteruses. Female promiscuity is freedom, male promiscuity is rape. Etc etc.

It's this sort of attitude that makes me just want to abandon the female gender entirely and just seal myself up in a nice little bubble away from them. Wrong was done to you so you lash out in return? What kind of behavior is that? And why is it always letting women fall to male standards instead of raising men to female standards that is undertaken? Why is the response to men being irresponsible parents and sexual partners a call for female promiscuity and terrible motherhood rather than a rallying cry for chastity and "He won't buy the cow if he's getting the milk for free" type thinking? Why don't women want to lead by example and just be more forceful rather than less moral?

I'll never understand. All I know is that there are no smart,sweet, nice girls in my generation as far as I can tell. They're all either indoctrinated male dominated simps or just essentially nasty jerk boys who happen to have female genetalia etc. Ugh maybe I should just abandon the community and get back to my quiet LJ existance with a few hand picked people I talk to and nobody out there to upset me or make me want to withdraw. Sounds a little self-limiting but I haven't had any significant view changes in debate and I've been upset. Doesn't seem to be doing me any good.

It's sad though that things are this way because I can't see myself as NOT eventually contributing to the masculine hegemony, which I do believe is wrong, because I know that when I reach a position where I don't have to kiss TOO much ass I am not going to be socializing with the females in the company. I will probably also try to avoid having a female assistant or project partner. There's just too great a danger of bumping into one of these mental hermaphrodites who will try to cram her intellectual psudophallus down my throat. Of course chances are the hegemony will be dismantled by the time I get there, but I boy can dream.

In other news I am sick and I have to study for this stupid test or just go in blind. I can probably survive blind but I might not ace it. Of course my paper grades will be higher this semester so maybe I can eke out an A without two 98s.

Also I'm starting to dislike the Chris isaak album again but I'm addicted to it. It's not cohesive but the individual songs are pretty decent. I don't know, maybe it's just the cold talking. All I know is that Chris is the only thing I have right now keeping me relatively grounded in nice simple masculine reality. Thanks Chris.
