Misteri di “genere”

Ebbene sì, siamo quasi alla vigilia del “mimosicidio”. Ennesimo giro di boa e sarà ennesimo delirio “di genere”.

“Genere”, una parola un mistero. Sinonimo di “sesso”, uomo o donna, quando fa comodo ovviamente, per parlare della differenza salariale media tra uomini e donne, il “gender gap”. Meno comoda la parola quando si dovrebbe parlare di “education gap”, di morti sul lavoro, di suicidi, di divorzi, di senza-tetto, eccetera eccetera.

Sì, una parola strana, questo “genere”. Una parola che da sinonimo di sesso, può divenire sinonimo di uno specifico sesso, quello maschile, quando si parla di violenza di genere. Che strana parola, davvero. Sinonimo sia del concetto di sesso che di una sua istanza. Come dire che la “tinta” indica il concetto di “colore” ma significa anche il “blu”. Mah!

E la stessa parola, come per magia, può anche perdere completamente significato, quando il significato binario uomo/donna diviene troppo stretto; e sì, perché allora i generi si moltiplicano, 4, 5, 6, 30. Ma i sessi no, loro rimangono in due.

Il genere sinonimo del sesso, di un sesso, o di nessun sesso. Uno e trino.

Mistero.

Perché questo genere, è impalpabile, come l’aria, c’è ma non si vede. Ma l’aria la senti quando tira vento, quando sferza la tramontana, eccome se la senti. E così pure il genere, c’è e non c’è. Dipende. E come l’aria, non lo vedi ma lo respiri. Hai voglia a trattenere il fiato, prima o poi prendi fiato e te fai una bella boccata.

Che poi daje e daje, dà alla testa questo genere. E sì, altrimenti non si spiega…MisteroRookford

Non si spiega cosa, direte voi? Beh, forse è colpa mia, lacune di genere ovviamente, ma io ‘ste donne non le capisco proprio.

Le vedi un giorno sì e l’altro pure, a lamentarsi dell’oziosità degli uomini ad adempiere i compiti domestici, eppure disperate di trovarne uno per tutta la vita.

A sfilare la mattina con le scarpette rosse tirate a lucido per scongiurare la violenza “maschile”, e la sera in discoteca a cercare il carnefice.

A urlare la propria libertà di costumi, e poi inveire contro l’oggettificazione.

A inveire contro gli stereotipi delle favole, e a cercare per una vita il principe azzurrro.

A richiedere una paternità più attiva, e a buttar fuori i padri come fossero immondizia.

A rivendicare la supremazia accademica, e a lamentarsi di non trovare compagni adeguatamente acculturati.

A cercare il buon partito all’ultimo scoccare dell’orologio biologico, e non trovarlo…perché da tempo che è partito.

Misteri.

#GamerGate and the Pandora’s Box

Yes, even if you are not a “gamer”, even if you despise videogames, still the “gamer gate” matters to you.

If you are familiar with GamerGate, you can skip this part and move below to the next section of this post, the “Pandora’s Box”. If not, the “GamerGate”, in short and admittedly with oversimplification, it is about the attempt by some people in the gaming ecosystem, to take over journalistic integrity and to introduce an ideological perspective into the gaming business. These ideologues stem from the belief that the gaming business, currently male “dominated”, perpetuates gender stereotypes, enables misogyny, and makes games hostile to potential female audience and developers. In essence, to them, female game developers are entitled to “free passes” in the gaming business, and games have to be scrutinized and reviewed by a feminist perspective.SONY DSC

When this stuff was first uncovered, many gamers, and even some professionals of the gaming industry, exposed the “conspiracy”, and the hashtag #GamerGate was born. The outrage was not only raised by the undermining of journalistic integrity, there was more. “Gamers” were painted as a sort of distributed group of psychopathic individuals, addicted to misogyny. They were not anymore the main stakeholders of the business, but a sort of social psychology target. Quoting the emblematic words of one of these ideologues: “gamers are over“. A superior ethical playground had to be deployed by Social Justice Warriors (SJW); crusaders waging a war under the flag, as it soon became clear, of radical feminism.

The “grassroots” of GamerGate, the gamergaters, grew exponentially; they exposed the lies, the non-sense and the inherent anti-male bias of the “conspiracy” plan. Some of them, saddly, decided to engage in a personal battle with the most prominent SJWs, and someone decided to address them also with “virtual” threats. A  SJW, unable to grasp the relation between insulting hundreds of millions of people and getting back harsh reactions from a dozen of them, made even more clear her ideological standpoint; the problem was not the game but the dominant demographic behind the game:

We need to seriously address connections between violence, sexism and toxic ideas of manhood before boys and men commit more mass shootings.

and

Not a coincidence it’s always men and boys committing mass shootings. The pattern is connected to ideas of toxic masculinity in our culture.

The mass media, as expected, sided with the SJWs, hiding facts, twisting the real matter of concern of gamers, and giving unilateral “prime time” to Social Justice Warriors instead of hosting fair debates. The bias in media made clear, if ever needed, the intimate and suspicious relation between SJWs and the media.

This is, to make a long story short, the development of the GamerGate during the last two-three months.Pac_Man_Wallpaper

Actually, to be even more accurate, the GamerGate started well before the fall of 2014, long before the hashtag was coined. Three years ago, already, some SJWs launched a campaign to tackle misogyny in multiplayer games; according to them, if a woman gets an occasional stupid or offensive comment in a multiplayer gaming session over the Internet, it is widespread misogyny; female gamers, naturally, deserved special protection rules on top of those already existing in gaming moderation for normal people. And just few months after that, a prominent SJW launched a campaign to tackle stereotypes in video games; games were, in her opinion, demeaning of female empowerment and they encouraged the misogynistic attitude of male population. This representation of “truth” came from a SJW who was neither a gamer or a game developer.

Now, you should have a wider, even if superficial, knowledge of the #GamerGate.

The Pandora’s Box

That being said, why should GamerGate matter to you, even if you are not interested in videogames? Even if you hate videogames? Even if you despise just the idea of a dude wasting time with a console?

Surely, you should worry about media corruption, because it is a thing, but there is much more than this. Gamergate is serious stuff because it opened the “Pandora’s box”; in the box there is much more than games, there is social profiling, social engineering, megalomania, and foremost, misandry.

Radical Feminism has taken over social studies in the academia, especially in the USA, becoming a cult based on the disdain of male identity. With a declared enemy: masculinity. Most of religions are based on a benevolent God; this cult is based on a malevolent one, an Evil, which embodies in male population in the form of “toxic” or “hegemonic” masculinity.

But do not be fooled; the “toxic” masculinity is just a moving target, to divert ingenuous people from the real declared enemy, the male identity. It is as simple as that.sin

Being male is the “original sin” of this cult; it is no wonder, then, to hear the male adepts often apologizing for their “privileged” status of heterosexual male; or even worse, “white heterosexual male”. It is the initiation ritual male adepts play to be recognized by the sisterhood; and it has to be periodically renewed, to confirm their belonging, to exorcise their demon inside.

This is a war on women in gaming waged by a group of sexist monsters. If you are not a horrible being, get out of #gamergate now

It is the reply by a SJW to a gamer. It is a war between monsters, or horrible beings, against humans. It is an ethical battle against the evil, a crusade; “either you are with us or you are the enemy”.  At least to me, it reminds the words of Obama (and Bush before) sanctifying the crusade against ISIS for the sake of “our common humanity”. An epic battle between humans and not humans.

Feminism’s adepts have being operating for decades, unchallenged, in the academia, in the media establishment and even in many national and extra national organizations, such the UN.

As the group identity of feminism developed, masculinity became an enemy far beyond the battlefield of games. The “idealization” process of the “masculine” evil has grown hyperbolically; it is worth to quote a statement form an EU research on Social Science and Humanities dated 2004, a work realized by feminist scholars and financed by the EU commission, titled “The Social Problem of Men“:

The EU can be understood as a project devised to reduce men’s historical tendency to nationalistic conflict and war, and so achieve relative stability in Europe. There is indeed increasing recognition of the central place of men and masculinity in the collective violence of war.

Masculinity is not an enemy, it is THE final enemy.

This crusade is beyond insanity. It is megalomania. It is about a pervasive social conditioning of men and boys. It is about psychic manipulation of infants with the introduction of the “gender ideology” during the early stages of education. It is about manipulating minds and criminalizing natural tendencies, in order to stimulate a self-inhibition. Brainwashing children outside the reach of the family; a family already framed as an adverse institution that poses the risk of replicating gender roles, and facilitating the contagion of the “toxic” masculinity.

At the root of sick forms of social engineering is the natural tendency of people in position of power, to project own personality and experience into others; it is egomania. When these people with high decisional (financial, academic, political) power endorse an ethical doctrine, chances are that their egomania will translate into megalomania.

The megalomaniac process of social engineering follows four stages; it starts with social profiling of adults; then it moves to indoctrinating young people, thus to brainwashing children, and finally to the non-yet born people, with adoption of bio-genetics or selective reproduction.arancia-meccanica-scene-1

It is a path which, ultimately, leads to eugenics.

History repeats itself, cyclically, in different yet similar forms, simply because the engine that moves individuals and groups, at the core, does not change. Eugenics was widely adopted in Europe and USA, less than a century ago (abolished in Sweden in 1974). It was legal because it had both “ethical” and “scientific” support. The road of “ethics” idealizing a society with “better people” crossed the road of science busy in defining relations between “unwelcome social traits” and biological factors; at the crossroad, it was “selection of the species”. Minorities and people affected by hereditary diseases were profiled and brainwashed to lead them on the way of “spontaneous” sterilization; a “compassionate” way of preventing the sufferings of unwelcome new-borns. The “evil” was not intentional; to eugenicists it was all about avoiding the suffering of “inferior” beings in a society designed for others. It was sincere kindness, in sick minds.

If we cannot modify society, maybe we can modify the people; why not? Quoting once again a passage of the EU research mentioned above, “The Social Problem of Men“:

Changing and improving gender relations and reducing gender inequality involves changing men as well as changing the position of women.

A very telling mission statement, aiming to change the position of women and, emblematically, assuming the possibility of changing men; “beings” reduced to disposable matter, to be customized in order to fit a society tailored on a gynocentric order.16328_012eugenicsexhibit

Eugenics is on the horizon.

Most likely you do not see this horizon approaching. We are all good people, we do not do such kind of things, except we already did them and we do them, and always for apparently good reasons, because we are good people.

Let’s go back 20 years ago, and imagine someone making the prediction that in 20 years schools would being teaching little kids that young males are not necessarily “boys” and young females are not necessarily “girls”; and family members opposing to this, threatened with allegations of “hate speech”. Would have you bet on this prediction?

Now let’s fast forward a couple of decades, and let’s imagine that “science” should tell us that the “gene” of violence has been identified and we have enough knowledge and technical means to intervene on that. How many will stand against it?

Scan the horizon.

Does gamergate itself deal with eugenics? No, of course not.

Do the Social Justice Warriors advocate for eugenics? No, of course not.

Do the feminists at the EU parliament, believing that masculinity is correlated to Climate Change, advocate for eugenics? No, of course not.

Do the feminist scholars aiming at “changing men”, advocate for eugenics? No, of course not.

Do the radical feminists dreaming of a reduction of male population, advocate for eugenics? Well, maybe they do.

Psychopaths apart, most of them are just “good people” who want to “manifacture” even better people. Some are stuck at social profiling, others proceeded to the next stages of social engineering; brainwashing and indoctrination. But they all, in good faith, do not realize the misandry of their argumentations. Not even the megalomania implied by their intents.

In a way, they just manifest a radical expression of a wider social trend; our “western” enlightened society is gradually shifting towards a new idolatry, based on the projection of a human kind gifted with “superior” ethical values.

It is the old recurring dream of a life in Eden. Except that the new “all mighty” to be worshipped, to many, has the appearance of a Goddess.

Dear Hermione

it came to my notice that recently you had a speech at the UN, under the flag of UN Women, to call men and boys to support women.

It might be a surprise for you but we, men, already do it, and have done it for a long, long time. Of course, few of us are mighty as Harry Potter, and we can’t fix everything, actually we have issues in fixing our own issues. We are just human, as strange as it may seem to some people.

At first glance, I wondered: “Is she presenting a new movie?” Then I realized you were just appointed as a “goodwill ambassador” by UN. What a great achievement for such a young woman. Did you take the fast lane? However, I understand you are used to red carpets.

Beside you, the comforting presence of Ban Ki Moon, chair of UN, whose profession is to justify the bombings of democracy in countries that, while do not seem to fit our superior values, do seem to comply nicely with our energy and natural resources demands. Welcome in the “real politics”.

The occasion was to launch a new enlightened campaing, in your own words:

Today we are launching a campaign called ‘HeForShe’. I am reaching out to you because I need your help. We want to end gender inequality – and to do that we need everyone to participate. This is the first campaign of its kind at the UN: we want to try and galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for change. And we don’t just want to talk about it, but make sure it is tangible.

“He for she”, it does not sound new to me. You are still young and you may not be completely aware of history, but some of us, many of our fathers, and many, many of our grandfathers, millions of them, have also embraced arms to fulfil crusades and “honourable” missions, sometimes with courage, sometimes to avoid the shame of the “white ribbon” of cowardice.

One century ago, some of them decided to stay “safe” in a sinking ship just to secure that their “women and children” had a chance of surviving. Is Titanic your next coming movie?

There has been already a time of He For She, it has always been like that. The reward for those men? The myths of “toxic masculinity” and “male oppression”. Not a great deal, in retrospective.

The more I have talked to about feminism the more I’ve realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with manhating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop.

Dear Hermione, have you investigated why?

For the record – Feminism by definition is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes”

No, you have not investigated.

image_1

For the record, what do you mean with “this has to stop?” It reminds me the advocacy of censorship by Feminist groups and the lobbying to make “antifeminism” illegal. Yes, really, have you ever heard of it? I mean for real, they did it. Have you ever heard of a primary human right, the right to free opinion and expression? It is also wrtitten in the UN chart, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I started questioning gender-based assumptions a long time ago. When at 8 I was confused at being called ‘bossy’

Really Hermione? How did you survive?

When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings. I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminist.

YOU assume your male counterparts were NOT ABLE to express their feelings? Doesn’t it sound sexist? And bossy? Maybe this lapsus reveals why reasonable people despise feminism. It is just a tip…

I am from Britain and think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts.

I’m from Italy and I believe I’m a better actor than you, can we share our bank accounts?

I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body.

I do, as well. And please take full moral and financial responsibility of the outcome.

I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society despite my needing his presence as a child as much as my mother’s.

That’s not the issue, Hermione. This is how feminists want to see the problem. Men see it from another perspective. We’ve seen millions of men deprived of their children, house and money, and sent in jail, brought to the edge of selfdestrucion. By a family court system that has been built on feminist dogmas and propaganda, and by women that have had no issue in the last four decades in destroying human lives, because not only of absence of ripercussions, but because there was a social incentive to do it. Millions, baybe. For men the problem of dignity is over. Now it is about survival.

I’ve seen a young man suffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make him less of a man – in fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49; eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success.

Oh, oh. nice try Hermione. The toxic masculinity card hidden behind the empathy. Good try.

We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes

No, men are imprisoned too often, full stop.

If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we just are – we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle. So their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so that their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human too – reclaim those parts of themselves they abandoned and in doing so be a more true and complete version of themselves.

Did I get it correctly? Men and boys are not yet human as they are today? Are they incomplete? By the way Hermione, regarding the mantles … well … we got rid of them along with the armours and horses.

You might be thinking who is this Harry Potter girl? And what is she speaking at the UN. It’s a good question and I’ve been asking myself the same thing. I don’t know if I’m the right person to be speaking.

No dear Hermione, do not worry. You are not worse than many others that preceded you. We got the message loud and clear, already. Actually we have being earing it for 50 years.

hermione

Dear Hermione, I could spend pages and pages in explaining how much a better place our society has become thanks to feminism, and how much what we achieved fits the “equality” mission. However, I won’t. It will be sufficient for you, to have a look at the UN initiatives and organizations and verify with your own eyes how much the “equality” agenda is pursued and how humanitarian are their actions when it comes to men and boys.

I’ll leave you now with a gift, with three secrets. No, they are not the Fatima’s secrets, nevertheless, I feel that in the long run they will help you in understanding how you fit in the “gender equality” picture.

First secret. Gender Equality does not exist, and will not exist. It cannot exist because everyone is different. It is not even an unachievable dream, but just a utopian and megalomaniac mission that can only be pursued by mean of oppression and the systematic repression of freedom. Until its inner nature will appear clear: a psychotic nightmare.

Second secret, and this is about you. You are not an ambassador; you are a marketing testimonial used to lable poison as sugar. A puppet playing a plot written by those, at the UN, who 20 years ago launched a global agenda, called Gender Mainstreaming, based on radical feminist beliefs, which aims to the breakdown of family union and to the reduction of men and women to empty shells without identity.

Third Secret, and this is about us, men. The time for He for She is over, now it is time for Us for Us. Together we stand, divided we fall.


post scriptum

I apologize for my lack of proficiency in English. Hermione, the time we will be all equal is not far. That day, we’ll all be speaking the same language, where “bossy” and masculinity will be eventually considered hate speech.

Tautologia matematica

Stavo dando uno sguardo ad un testo di matematica* per Licei, in particolare alle nozioni base della logica, e sono incorso in questo esempio di espressione tautologica:

Un neonato è maschio o femmina

La logica confligge con l’ideologia gender. Forse per questo che qualcuno vuole fare la revisione dei testi scolastici in ottica “di genere”…
