Ayaan Hirsi Ali: American Feminism Focuses on Trivial BS

“We must reclaim and retake feminism from our fellow idiotic women.”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali knows what real feminism is about. As a vocal critic of the treatment of women in Muslim countries, she has risked her life.

According to a new report from Ashe Schow at the Washington Examiner, Hirsi Ali is unimpressed with American feminism:

Hirsi Ali slams feminism’s ‘trivial BS’

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a harsh critic of Islam’s treatment of women, said Wednesday that modern American feminism is focused on “trivial bullshit” and needs to be reclaimed.

Speaking at the Independent Women’s Forum Women of Valor dinner, where she received an award for courage, Hirsi Ali reminded her audience of how far feminism has strayed from its original purpose.

“I want you to remember that once upon a time, feminists fought for the access — basic right — access of girls to education,” she said…

“Feminists in this country and in the West fought against that and won the battle,” she added.

But now, Hirsi Ali said, feminism has taken that victory and squandered it.

“What we are now doing with the victory, and I agree with you if you condemn that and I condemn whole-heartedly the trivial bullshit it is to go after a man who makes a scientific breakthrough and all that we as women — organized women — do is to fret about his shirt?” Hirsi Ali said, referring to the controversy generated by the shirt featuring cartoons of scantily-clad women worn by the scientist who helped land a robot on a comet. “We must reclaim and retake feminism from our fellow idiotic women.”

Hirsi Ali may not be alone in her views.

Feminism Has Gone Too Far

An Oxford University debate was canceled, and certain subjects declared off-limits: why are feminists policing what is said about women and women’s bodies?

Two male journalists, one conservative and one contrarian, were to debate abortion at Oxford University earlier this week. The event was sponsored by a student pro-life group and had all the ingredients to provoke an impassioned campus protest: two men, both right-leaning, debating an issue not often debated in England. And what do they know about terminating a pregnancy anyway?

It’s a fair question, one that could have been put to either journalist in a spirited debate (the very thing we expect to happen within the walls of a university). Or better yet, instead of wasting an evening listening to two men do battle over who controls a woman’s uterus, the aggrieved, pro-choice student could have simply skipped the event altogether.

But for those who were offended that someone with a penis might discuss abortion at all, opting to skip the event wasn’t enough. After the student union Women’s Campaign (WomCam) urged the Oxford Students of Life to cancel the event and demanded an apology for attempting to stage the debate, the university called it off entirely, a move critics slammed as a grave restriction of free speech.

To any American feminists who want to criticize Hirsi Ali:

I dare you to walk a mile in her shoes.

Nevertheless, criticizing her is what they will do. Judging others is how progressives get through life. Helping women who are not spoiled rich brats who attended pricey public universities is out of the question.

She is hated by the Left because she speaks truth and today’s Left is built on lies.

Modern feminists are hurtling towards becoming a complete, if loud and whiny, joke at about 90 mph.

The shirt flap is the latest high-profile gaffe, but the whole Obama-backed campus ‘consent’ rules and kangaroo courts will generate a sufficient backlash to put the ‘movement’ in crisis.

Parents have to decide: if the feminists (and their girly-men sycophants like college administrators and Obama) are telling the truth, they are putting their daughters at severe risk of sexual assault by sending them to college in America – a greater risk than in rural Pakistan or Africa ever have been, if the statistics are correct.

If the feminists are lying, parents should know their sons are at risk of having their lives ruined by a drunken, vengeful slut with the full and enthusiastic cooperation of the institution they are paying $30K+ a year to ‘educate.’

Sooner or later, something’s gotta give. I’m guessing even the squishiest administrators will cut Wymyn’s Studies programs before they allow their schools to go bankrupt because one sex or the other is avoiding them.

Feminists fill the void of their feminism obsessed lives with nothing of import. They loudly demand that the void never be filled.

The brouhaha over Matt Taylor’s shirt is another nail in the coffin of an activism that has become a perverse caricature of itself. Since so much of the low hanging fruit, that speaks to any kind of recognizable reality is gone, the pressure is on to be more bizarre and quirky, aka “sexy” or faux avant garde, even if events have to be manufactured, scripted, contrived, the language twisted, and the data cherry picked. As the public gets inured to the latest allegation, the claims have to be ramped up into ever more outrageous, even silly, propositions to generate public attention and a response. How many stories have we seen where the victim was actually the perpetrator? I am recalling the Univ. of Wyoming student who wrote threatening emails to herself. Unbelievably, she was defended by other feminists even when the fraud was exposed. Lest we forget, it is not just a cult, but it is a money and notoriety stream.

No. 24 of Rusty L’s 35 Undeniable Truths of Life:

Feminism established “to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.”

Show me a modern American feminist extremist who is a hottie and I’ll eat the scientist guy’s cartoon shirt.

What has happened to modern feminism is the same thing that has happened to the NAACP and the black freedom movement. They were relevant once but no longer, we have a black president, so they find new “Grievances” and try to make them matter. It is sad to watch and even sadder to realize how far they have both fallen.

I always liked this woman. She tells it like it is and shows us where the real fight is (where our so-called feminists are way to comfy to go).

I also like Wafa Sultan.

I can with a clear conscience stand with human rights-oriented feminists.

As for human life, it evolves from conception — not birth — to a natural, accidental, or premeditated (e.g. abortion) death. This isn’t controversial. This should be self-evident. That said, when and by whose choice does a human life acquire value? The arbitrary viability standard justifies the abortion of more than half of the human population. Also, there is a popular misconception that evolution following conception is equivalent to evolution approaching death. Perhaps it’s time to sit the children down, review the known facts of life, and the place of religion or morality in a civilized society. No more abortion for money, sex, ego, and convenience; and population control (i.e. reduced problem set).

This woman has more guts and more integrity in the little toe of her left foot than the entire GOP leadership put together.

Imagine the likes of her as Speaker, instead of the a-hole we tolerate — for a THIRD term!

As historians will someday say ask about us GOP voters: “WTF were they thinking?”
