I’m not fond of social justice warriors, because they fight for causes that have long been accomplished. Black Lives started Mattering a long time ago when the Republican Party voted against the enslavement of black people. If Black Lives didn’t matter in America, the White House would never have harbored a black president for eight years.
There’s no need to block the traffic with human chains to enforce rights that have already been acknowledged. Woman is the Nigger of the World - sang John Lennon. He was right then - but contemporary feminism is outdated. Its adherents are not to be compared with their predecessors, the true feminists who fought for rights that were factually denied to them. Those women wanted to break free from their second-rate role as cherry pie baking housewives, get a job and vote - and they succeeded! The feminists of today are not feminists, but females who blame men for everything that’s dysfunctional in their lives. If you’re a feminist in Saudi Arabia and fight for your right to leave your house without a male companion, I salute you. If you live in Manhattan, brunch with the girls after an overpriced Bikram yoga class and scapegoat people for having a penis, I urge you to self-reflect. While you cry about imaginary wage gaps, there are women on other continents who get acid thrown in their faces for wearing nail polish. If you really care about women, go stand in front of the Saudi Arabian embassy and protest.
Or go vegan, as veganism is the only true social justice war that needs to be waged in the west today, and the only credible form of feminism. The milk you pour in your kid’s cereal in the morning comes from a female cow who was raped by farmers who forced bull seed into her genitals. She needed to be pregnant and deliver a calve to be able to lactate, so humans could steal their milk. When that calve was taken away from her, she cried for weeks. A female chicken is obliged to stand in her own feces in tiny cages that cut her feet and lay eggs the whole time. Laying eggs is as stressful to her as delivering a baby is to a woman. The smell of ammonia makes her lose her minds, so she attacks other chickens. A farmed female sturgeon is cut open alive for her black eggs and thrown back into the water without sedation, so socialites who call themselves feminists can stuff their mouths with caviar.
True feminism is about compassion for the females that are denied all the rights - the right to life, and the right to the pursuit of happiness. These are not rights we should give them, but birthrights we have taken from them. They are the birthrights of all females. And revolting against that, is what I call true feminism.
Respect all females. Go vegan.
