#WhiteWomanPrivilege meets Festivus: The airing of bitter intra-feminist racial grievances

#WhiteWomanPrivilege meets Festivus: The airing of bitter intra-feminist racial grievances

Saturday Night Card Game

We have noted before the tensions between white liberal feminists and non-white liberal feminists.

Sometimes it breaks out into a Twitter War, as it did when #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen hashtag unleashed bitter intra-feminist racial grievances.

Or when Joan Walsh of Salon.com got into a twitter war with some ladies who did not like Walsh’s condescending “professional left” attitude towards women of color, Dem Base Fractures Into Twitter War And Charges Of Racism Against Professional Left.

This past week, for reasons unknown to me, the eruption used the hashtag #WhiteWomanPrivilege.

It was like Festivus, the airing of grievances:

There was not enough popcorn growing in the States of Iowa and Nebraska combined to cover this outbreak of intra-feminist racial greivances.

Here are some of my favorites, but by all means scroll through the hashtag — but don’t get any butter on the couch please:

Of course, when these wars break out, some conservative trolls just can’t help themselves:

And of course, someone has to drag Elizabeth Warren into it:

I did the experiment: I typed “beautiful women” into Google image search. I came up with shots that include Beyonce and Aishwarya Rai, an Bollywood star heralded as one of the great beauties of our age. Hey Africa – India is home to a lot of hot women, too! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aishwarya_Rai_Bachchan

Why do I get the feeling somebody got caught looking at beautiful women on the internet and claimed, “No, honey, this, uh, this is for a blog post I’m working on! Honest, snookums!”

White liberal feminists being taken to the woodshed?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I guess they thought they had a “liberal privilege card” to shield them from all criticism.

Did anyone bring the popcorn?

This should be fun to watch but keep your distance, people!

Spread out, keep your interval, people!

I hope the Democrats know what they are doing.

So, how long before our society rips itself to shreds?

Stupid should hurt.

You just can’t beat #WhiteWomanPrivilege for tearing at the heartstrings of the left, but those heartstrings fall apart anyway since they are only there for show to promote policy objectives.

Lately there has also been another bit of genderiffic trouble in liberal paradise as it becomes evident that a substantial percentage of “cis lesbians” (born as females) resent “transgendered” (males living as women, either cosmetically or who have had the surgery and hormone treatments) and won’t consider “dating” them. This of course leads to feelings of extreme emotional oppression in the “trans” community, and tension between the two. Which sometimes gets pretty vicious.

What is the percentage of “feminist” who are actually “anti-male”?

Kinda, sorta, bigoted, huh?

I would say that these outraged feministas, whether white or non-white – have all become BASE if Miley Cyrus is a feminist icon and they voted for BO again.

    It’s hard to keep up with modern feminism. I thought a woman being treated as a sex object was anathema to fembots.

    What else is Miley Cyrus, but a sex object?

      I think of her as a ridicule object.

      Not according to Jincey Lumpkin…..come on man…is that even close to a real name? I would almost expect that article to be satire. Possible what I would have read in the old National Lampoon from the 70’s with a name like that.

I hate to have to admit this, but I think the “women of color” have a point.

I’ve started to notice a lot of ads on TV showing mixed race couple. But they are ALWAYS black men with white women. (Go ahead and check this yourself. Pay REALLY close attention to how often you see a couple depicted with these races reversed: NEVER.) Occasionally the mixed couples include people of Asian ancestry, and there is mixing of genders (e.g. white male, Asian female, or Asian male, white female). But NEVER black female with a male of any other race.

So, the message here is “men of all races prefer white women or Asian women over black women”.

Talk about racism.

And the funny thing is, no Democrats or other Leftists have EVER commented on this obvious racist message coming from Madison avenue (a Leftist bastion) EVERY DAY.

    Some that may also be because of the attitude that a black woman is only “authentically” black if she is with a black man. Look at the abuse Tamera Mowry is dealing with because she is married to a white man. Could it be that no black women want to be shown as part of a couple with a non-black man so they don’t have to worry about being called “white man’s whore” and worse? Or because they believe that themselves?

    The antagonism usually starts in the workplace. In some fields dominated by white women managers, black and non-white women discover that “women’s solidarity” doesn’t actually exist. Or if it does, it’s reserved for other white women.

    Minority women have been schooled on the hype of feminism, but what the real world yields leaves quite a few of them enraged. What they learn through experience is that sometimes white males – for non-white women – are the best bosses. He’s much more likely to be competent, sympathetic, polite, gives credit for your ideas / projects and non-condescending.

      Well then instead of discussing feminism issues at work, you could always just try to concentrate on actually getting your work done?

      Very rad concept, yeah I know.

    It is called jungle fever baby.

    There really is one. The commercial with the baby saying, “Isn’t anyone bothered by the fact that the mime is talking?” features a black woman, an Asian male and a biracisl baby.

    But, let’s tell the unvarnished truth: in our society, black women in general are simply not seen as being as attractive as white women. The few black women who are seen as beautiful tend to be like Beyonce or Halle Berry, with a whole lot of white mixed in and, most importantly, not traditionally Negroid facial features. We see the same thing happening with Indian women, such as Aarti Mann and Reshma Shetty, fairly dark complected by with Anglophile features. There are a couple of exceptions, such as Naomi Campbell, but exceptions are exactly what they are.

    Black women who have more African features are not normally presented as attractive in our advertising and our media, and these things influence cultural choices.

    Black men, on the other hand, have seen some promotion as being attractive in the mainstream media without the seemingly rigid restriction of having more European features.

    We can call that racism if you wish, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

This reminds me of something Thomas Sowell said, something to the effect, that, in all of America’s 400-year history, he couldn’t think of a single injustice or indignity visited upon black people that would justify preferential treatment for white women.

White Privilege exists only in the minds of a few.

They need WP to justify their own shortcomings; that’s a lot easier than admitting them.
So, WP is just the product of low self esteem.

“#WhiteWomanPrivilege is trying on hijab for a day & taking it off then being praised for how *~*open minded & accepting*~* you are. — Ainee Fatima (@Faineemae) January 15, 2014”

I’d like to see a Muslim woman wear a Star of David for a day.

Radicals originate as outsiders, railing against those in power. When they attain power, they must keep attacking – it’s all they know. Inevitably, they attack each other, like a snake chomping its own tail.

“Radicals originate as outsiders, railing against those in power.”
And yet so many of them are insiders, the children of the wealthy or upper middle class.

They are neglecting the first rule of holes. When you are in one, STOP DIGGING.
