After a long day, I get home, log on to Facebook and the first thing I read is “27 Attractive Girls Who Became Ugly Freaks Because of Feminism” and already I’m rolling my eyes so far back that I’m pretty sure I saw the Pankhurst sisters deeply exhaling towards the ignorance.
Apparently, according to blog writer Roosh Valizadeh, feminism has supposedly ruined the structures of beauty and for some reason thinks that he holds the almighty power to define what beauty is. Now, I’m not sure if this is one of those I-write-stupid-blogs-to-seem-controversial-and-interesting or it’s genuinely a man with THE most acute way of thinking, either way this man has some serious mama issues.
So as an male feminist, I would do my role to part take in this conversation by redoing his blog in a direction that’s, shall we say, morally correct. I won’t touch on all 27 women, but I’m gonna give a general reply so he and all the other men with easily,tarnished pride can see that no one, and I mean no one, cares about how you want your women. You get what you get and if you have an issue, enjoy the right hand buddy.
New Title: Women Who Stuck it to Patriarchy With Their BS Ideologies of Beauty.
This here is Leigh Alexander. She was one of the women who received harassment during the Gamergate Controversy. Apparently women in the gaming industry didn’t deserve similar respect as the men and in her criticism she saw the controversy as “the terroristic dominance of traditional appetites in what should be a diverse and creative field“. Her roundabout argument was to open gaming up to better represent women and minorities within the gaming industry. Are we really gonna judge her looks when she just dropped the mic like a BAWSS?
For some reason Mr. Roosh has an issue with women with shaved heads. Let’s just say for the record, no one cares about how you grow your beard, or how long your hair is, then why do you think we would care about your opinions on how these women have theirs? Does it make you uncomfortable because you’re confused about your sexuality when you look at them? Did the whole, boys-have-short- hair and girls-have-long-hair just stumped the sexuality out of you? hm? Here’s a little tip, THEIR HAIR! THEIR BUSINESS!!!
He then went on to attack this woman here because:
a) armpit hairs
Then somehow linked it to Sigmund Freud’s Penis Envy theory. Well, someone must have been put on the bottle sooner than he thought. The notion of feminism is for women to be in control of their body, to let themselves be in touch with the naturalness of femininity. I’m sure there was a time where women just grew their business without any criticism. Then as time went on, for some reason men then started imposing this idea that body hair on women are just nasty and for generations we have let our women believe this. Well, it may be something different to what we’re use to, but this is a woman’s natural state, she also bleeds once a month, but hey! Who cares right? Just let her body do it’s thaing; and as for the tattoo, I will say the forehead thing is a bit much, but it’s her decision at the end of the day, so follow my lead Mr.Roosh and just shushh.
Now on to the slut shaming. Don’t be misled by the title, it was obviously chosen to be ironic. The poem itself explores the title set upon women who are sexually active. God forbid a woman sleeps with more than one man by choice but lets all fist bump and high 5 the guy who intimidated a girl into sex. No biggy! Here is where I sprinkle some Lil Kim lyrics to get your mind thinking:
Here’s something I just can’t understand/ If a guy have three girls than he’s the man/ He can even give her some head, then sex her raw/ If a girl do the same than she’s a whore.- Christian Aguilera ft Lil Kim: Can’t Hold Us Down
Now what comes after slut shaming? Oh of course, Body Shaming. *slow claps for the cliché*. Honestly, are we still at that point where we pretend no one has cellulite anymore? To all the women who wanna be thick-thighed, you beautiful girl, same with you girls who have good metabolism. Calvin Harris has made a song confessing his love for all The Girls and their differences; and if it’s coming from someone like him, do we really care for the irrelevant opinion of Mr. Roosh?
I’ll leave my list there. My point is, no man can tell a woman, or anyone for that matter, how they should present themselves. If you a woman who wanna represent the shaved head look, then go for it. If you a man who wanna slay in them heels, DO IT MAMA! No one here should be telling the other how they should be dressing (unless it’s your mother on a Sunday morning), so Mr. Roosh, thanks for the “Ugly Freaks” label, but conventional beauty was so pre-Madonna.
