Feminism Flounders

Dedicated to my muze: @EsthervanFenema

It’s a common misunderstanding that men and women are equal, a myth perpetuated by generations of idealists fed by the declaration of human rights. Lofty as that declaration is, it holds quite a few misconceptions. Next to the misconception that humanity is one big family of entities who strive all for the common good and thereby gain common rights, there is also the misconception about the equality of the male and female of the species.

Biologically, mentally and spiritually they are not equal, they are completely different. They have different bodies, brains, minds, capacities etc. These are biologically predefined. Ages of evolution caused the two genders to be good at some tasks, worse at others but not at the same. Whole neural networks are setup at birth to make that so, environmental feedback only serves to train them.

Along comes feminism. At first for good reason. Women didn’t have the same rights as men, and where treated as second rate humans. Which was a wholly one sided view perpetuated by religious doctrine and completely false. So that got corrected, women got the same rights as men.
Strangely enough nobody thought to attach also the duties which came with privileges leaving the balance somewhat in favor of women. Worse still, to make up for the millennia of female maltreatment even positive discrimination was introduced.

Which left women with a strong feeling of entitlement but overall without the capacity to take part in the acquired rights. Which created a new wave of feminism, the feminism of complaint. Every time women didn’t make the grade this was due to those awful men not giving them their just dues. Fervently the followers of the doctrine of female entitlement battled against the perceived injustice creating a whole new world where us versus them took over.

Men should come down a notch or two so women could more easily take their entitled places. Over the years this resulted in a society where the born with capacities were disconnected from daily life, men had to behave more like women and women started to behave more like men.

The direct result of this are generations of men and women who lost their footing due to the forced roles they had to assume and for which both were not exactly fit. Now none was feeling well in their roles as unisex beings.

Man/women kind should return to what they are good at, instead of desperately trying to deny that nature has reserved different roles for both. Denying your true self can only lead to insecurity, anxiety and various mental issues.

Stop floundering feminists. Start taking yourself seriously as a woman. Accept both genders are unequal, but not thereby more or less worth. Stop bitching about what the world does to you and take control of your own life. Stop trying to level the playing field by forcing men and women into some lowest common denominator, but go and prove yourself by just doing your thing.

The evil that is nuanced thinking

The ‘nuanced thought’ mind is fodder for sociologists and psychologists. Unfortunately, those are generally from the same circles where nuanced thought is the yardstick so that won’t result in much. Nuanced thought is a strange kind of phenomenon. It has a negative impact on social cohesion but in a mobius strip-like manner presents itself it as a positive thing. The biggest problem with nuanced thought is that it is based on the principle that homo sapiens is a rational species, free of the primary instincts other mammals carry.

A delusion that is actually pretty easily corrected . Homo sapiens has the same basic brain structures as all other mammals, which are basic structures for an independent operating brain. That brain has total control over the real-time interaction with the outside world. It controls the hormonal balance, the muscles and actually most of the non-autonomous part. This means that the brain is the primary control over our behavior and a major influence on our perception. Unfortunately, this brain cannot speak, it can only manifest itself through the body so as to influence so that the new, recently developed brain notices it and tries to integrate its interpretation of the stimuli.

 It names that manifestation  ‘feelings’ or ’emotions’ because it realized that it was not itself that it originated from but also can not know where it is coming from. The brains are hardly interconnected by nerves. There are some thin horizontal strands, but in comparison to the nerve that connects the two hemispheres, these are virtually non functional.

 What does this have to do with nuanced thought? Nuanced thought does not account for this predominance of a brain structure that is genetically preprogrammed to (re)act to everyday common issues. Because this structure is so old and finished development, it is not possible to change it. It is “hardwired”. Also because it is so old it is not able to adapt to contemporary society and reacts according to the patterns that once, in prehistoric times, were functional but not anymore. On the contrary.

For that reason, nuanced thought is a rational fiction, an abstract representation of reality. Nuanced thought only works in movies and books.

In every day life, it simply does not. Just can not work. The nuanced thought rationale is that things should be done according to a rational pattern, but the reality is that that never happens. Nuanced thought people are therefor cultists. There’s nothing wrong with that, everyone is free to follow any delusion. But history teaches us that once a a cult gets a certain number of followers there is the danger that their ideas are forced into practice.

And that is what we now see, the cult of nuanced thought has strong negative effects on the functioning of our society in causing for example multi-culturalism. A weird concept which assumes that totally opposing cultures can integrate in a short period of time and become a nice, sprinkled with rose petals, happily coexisting society.

One look at Europe’s big cities shows the deficit of this illusion.
