More Feminist Paranoia

More Feminist Paranoia.

Loathe as I am to include a link to the festering mountain of infantile tripe that is feministing.com, I couldn’t help being struck by this video.

http://feministing.com/2013/12/23/new-indian-ad-turns-the-spotlight-on-leering-men/

The video shows men in public places allegedly “leering” at women. Yes when a man dares to look at a woman he finds attractive, he is leering. The video is tagged with the words “rape culture” and “sexual harassment”. The video is an advertisement for TV in India that I can only assume is designed to shame men for having perfectly normal and natural sexual desires.

But wait. None of the women in this video were sexually harassed, never mind raped. None of the men touched any of the women. So what exactly is the point that this advert is trying to make. Are we now being told that men should not look at us? Are we being told that being looked at is being harassed? Are the makers of this video seriously trying to eliminate all forms of normal sexual expression?

The advert made the point that when the men realized they had been caught looking at the women, they turned away self-consciously. Well of course they did. They instinctively averted their gaze because they did not want to be rude or intimidating. This is also normal human behavior. If men did not “leer” at women then the human species would be long since extinct.

Men should not take this advert as an insult. It is actually a tribute to their good manners and self control. It is further proof if any more is needed, that while most men are attracted to women, most men (not all) do not have any desire to bully, intimidate or harass women in any way.

This is just one more example of the pathetic, whining, victim mentality of feminism. Its message is very simple – I’m a woman, hear me snivel. A man looked at me today. Whaaaaaaa, I’m a victim. Pathetic!

I look forward to the next update of feministing’s bizarre logic. What’s next? A campaign to persuade cats not to chase mice.

  2. Вы так хорошо писать по-английски, и вы делаете очень хорошие моменты.

    You Svetlana have jumped right in.

    • Thanks for another great quote Quoteman. I am saving these you know so I can use them in future:)))

  4. I read they are making one of these adds for UK also. We can expect one in Ireland soon. So stupid. I’m oppressed because a man looked at me. You know well my man Lana. I am pretty glad that the day I first met him, he leered at me. I am very happy for that.

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV8JPZyJiuE – So do you think this is also an offense for men? Occasional gazing is no sin. It becomes threatening when the other one doesn’t look away. But still, it’s just creepy. It’s a warning that the other person might not be completely sane. You can’t put people to jail by that.

  5. I agree with this 100% Lana. I am so tired of feminists, who claim to speak for me, whining because someone looked at them, or said something they didn’t like. When will these people grow up? They make all women look like idiots.

  6. Lol. I got caught out leering at a really cute guy in the mall a few days ago. OMG does that mean I’m part of rape culture and street harassment.

    • SPEAKING OF HOW PEOPLE ARE …. UR FAKE TROLL FROM RUSSIA WHO ALSO HAS A HISTORY OF THREATENING WOMEN BY WAY OF WEAPONS ON EXP PROJ REMEMBER ??LMFFO AHHAHAHAHAAH UR PAST CAUGHT UP WITH U AND UR TROLLING FROM RUSSIA

  7. Hi Lana!!!

    I finally refound your blog thanks to those harpie feminists over on that feminist echo chamber we used to be members of, ha ha ha.

    At any rate, I am thankful every day that I caught my husband “leering” at me moments after the first time we met. He didn’t have the good sense to look away though, he just smiled . . . mmmmmm 🙂

    • Hi Michelle.

      Thanks for checking out my little blog! I hope your husband didn’t leer at you too much over Christmas:))) And I hope you didn’t leer back.

      I forgot to wish you and your people a very happy new year.

  8. Great article, Svetlana. I’m glad I found this blog. It’s always great to hear intelligent women stand up to the lies of feminism.

  9. “Men should not take this advert as an insult. It is actually a tribute to their good manners and self control. It is further proof if any more is needed, that while most men are attracted to women, most men (not all) do not have any desire to bully, intimidate or harass women in any way.”

    That’s a really nice point of view 🙂

    And here is some context for you:
    India is a weird clusterfuck of a truckload of puritanism(if that’s the word) + tons of hypocrisy + a lot of diversity. So here are some crazier observations. I am in my mid 20s and a significant chunk of my female friends still claim that they don’t masturbate/watch porn (and are supposedly all virgins). The worst part is I even kind of believe them. Apparently a significant chunk of the rape cases filed here are “Rape on pretext of marriage”, where consensual sex would be considered as rape if a guy(yes, applies only to guys) fails to keep up his promise of marriage to the girl. Stalking, Voyeurism etc… are crimes only a man can commit against a woman ( more creepiness @ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_Law_(Amendment)_Act%2C_2013 ).

    “Are we now being told that men should not look at us?”

    Start doing that and you’ll be labelled a woman hater/wimp => even more non sense to put up with. There is no winning in all this.

    “Are we being told that being looked at is being harassed?”

    You have no idea how many bimbo/dumbo “friends” (some of them are even guys 😐 ) of mine shared this video on social media and expected me to nod and re-share in agreement /respect/whatever the hell it was.

    “Are the makers of this video seriously trying to eliminate all forms of normal sexual expression?”

    Probably yes? I mean we do have a huge population problem. Some actress had to make a public apology because of death threats she got just because she mentioned in an interview “I don’t see anything wrong with premarital sex”. There are colleges in here banning “interaction between boys and girls” ( http://krishashok.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/rucking-fules.jpg – someguy even got thrown out of the college for wishing a girl Happy Birthday with a handshake ). Its 2014 and our censor board still censors kissing/clevage scenes in movies. Obviously, I m talking only about the extreme cases I’ve observed, but there is a lot of creepiness here.

  10. So… you think Feministing is a stupid website so you spend your time posting about how stupid it is? If you don’t understand why leering is street harassment, maybe you should take a few college courses and educate yourself. What is the point of being against a certain group of activists? Just don’t be a feminist yourself. Creating and upkeeping this blog must take hours… and for what? What exactly are you trying to accomplish anyhow? It sounds like you have unresolved psychiatric issues.

  11. I’m so glad I found your blog. I have exactly the same views as you and am so sick of my feminist friends getting pissed at apparently how I’m not standing up for women. The fight for feminism is supposed to be about equality of genders, but now its lets-call-everything-sexist. Feminist paranoia definitely exists. Keep up with the blog! I really enjoy reading it 🙂
