Recently I made a video, Rosie the Riveter – A message for feminists, which calls out the famous feminist icon and hero depicted on the propaganda piece for the false idol she is.
After receiving many positive comments on the video, I received the following comment from a feminist who seemed quite upset with me for having spoken the truth about Rosie.
I found this comment to be quite ridiculous and replied to her with the following:
As I am only allowed so many words in a comment on YouTube, I would like to address this tired feminist claim that there exists a patriarchy which is out to systematically oppress women and create complete subordination to male authority.
If it is true that this feminist theory of patriarchy exists, then there seems to be many inconsistencies in the feminist rhetoric which need to be answered.
The first would be that, if this patriarchy indeed exists, and has existed for years before the present day, then why do women have so many rights, benefits, and privileges?
According to feminist theory, which is not really a theory, feminists believe that the patriarchy is “an unjust social system that is oppressive to women. It is the concept of patriarchy which often includes all the social mechanisms that reproduce and exert male dominance over women.”
If this is indeed true, then it logically follows that feminism is not responsible for giving women any rights, benefits, or privileges. Indeed it would be fair to say that the patriarchy is in fact responsible for instituting those rights, benefits, and privileges which women enjoy and profit from.
Feminism is a movement, not a political power that can force the supposed oppressive patriarchal hand to suddenly embrace women and end their oppression. Feminists have stated that the patriarchy is a “dominant social system whose only goal is the oppression and dominance of women,” so why would such a system then grant women rights, benefits, or privileges? It just does not make any sense does it?
The other question one must ask is that, if this oppressive patriarchy exists, why have women been allowed to infiltrate it?
Today women are welcomed to be part of the ‘dominant social system’ by the patriarchal oppressors. What would be the benefit to these dominant and oppressive males to have women in their clubhouse competing for dominance, and in many instances, achieving dominance over these men? Would it not be to the dominant male’s advantage to refuse a woman’s participation in the dominant social system and to refuse the implementation of any laws, benefits, or privileges for women? Wouldn’t the goal of these oppressive men be to keep all women as obedient and restricted as possible?
The truth is one of two things. Either there is not now, nor ever was, any patriarchy as feminists would have us believe, or there does indeed exist a patriarchy which is nothing like the oppressive and domineering one that feminism has conjured up, and it is not concerned with dominating or oppressing women for some sort of male supremacy or world domination.
In fact, if the patriarchy does indeed exist, it seems that it is more concerned with women and their rights, well-being, and demands than they are with their own gender.
So when feminists claim they are fighting the patriarchy because it is an oppressive system, they are in fact saying that the same system that has given them all the rights, benefits and privileges they have, and continue to get is oppressing them. And it is that factual inconsistency that reveals the truth that feminist theory is completely bullshit, and nothing more than a way for angry, sexually repressed, ignorant women to hate on men.
