If there is one thing that seems to unite the most extreme political reactionaries throughout the world, it is their gender. Whether it’s alt-right white supremacists marching in Charlottesville with their tiki torches, misogynist “incels” and men’s rights activists who believe feminism is the root of all their problems, or Islamic extremists who aim to restore the caliphate, one thing is constant: they are overwhelmingly male.
You mean those incels that no-one had heard of until a few weeks ago? The leftie media is almost pathetically grateful that they turned up. Even though their threat level is almost zero. It turns out that Alek Minassian, the Toronto ‘incel’ killer, had special needs, and it looks like he had Asperger syndrome.
Also Conor, I noticed you left out tankies. Or is that because there are female tankies? (But if that’s true wouldn’t it kind of blow your theory?)
The article’s hardly worth bothering with, except to notice that Conor’s academic expert is Dr Michael Kimmel, described by Wikipedia as “a spokesperson of the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS) and a longtime feminist”, and on his own website as
one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinities. He is the SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Stony Brook University… A tireless advocate of engaging men to support gender equality… He has delivered the International Women’s Day annual lecture at the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council of Europe, and has worked with the Ministers for Gender Equality of Norway, Denmark and Sweden in developing programs for boys and men. He consults widely with corporations, NGOs and public sector organizations on gender equity issues. He was recently called “the world’s most prominent male feminist” in The Guardian newspaper in London.
None of this is exactly a surprise, is it? The expert quoted turns out to be an activist, and possibly the world’s biggest cuck.
