Joss Whedon and Jean-Paul Sartre: The Wanker Phallosophers

by allecto

— FROM THE ARCHIVES —

Phallosopher contemplating his meaningless existence, and how deep his meaninglessness is.

Ok, so I’m currently thinking a lot about the episode of Firefly, Objects in Space. This was the last episode of the TV series before production was stopped. And as such it became one of the most important to the fans of the series. Now I did want to talk about the racism of this particular episode. And I will. I will be focusing particularly on the construction of lust, both in this episode, and in the series as a whole. But first I wanted to talk a little about male philosophy as Wank.

Joss Whedon really loves Wank. That is basically the moral of this episode Objects in Space. I will be referring to Joss Whedon as a Phallosopher throughout this entry. I envisage Phallosophers to encompass all the Great Male Phallosophers throughout the ages. From Aristotle to Camus to Sartre to Whedon. Phallosophy is characterised by self-obsession, misogyny, and a disturbing, yet relentless tendency to produce Wank. Phallosophers are generally Bores. Now, what is common to most Phallosophers is their acute susceptibility to Male Artist Syndrome, as theorized very superbly by Dissenter:

On Credibility

by FCM

in the real world, meaning in the world occupied by men, where womens issues are a nonissue really, and we are only talking about trite, privileged bullshit that doesnt matter anyway…credibility matters.  journalists have to disclose any possible conflicts of interest when they are reporting on a story, so that any possible bias on their part is vetted.  and if the politician they are covering turns out to be their third cousin or something, the story might be given to someone else entirely.  you know, to avoid the appearance of impropriety.  to avoid the stench of fish.  or to, most importantly, maintain the value of some rich white mans stock in publicly traded media outlets.

Radish News: Fundraiser Held to Bail Out Male Feminist Activist

by lishra

The following article is satire, not reality. Mostly.

Thursday night in downtown San Francisco, a fundraiser was held to raise bail money for James Hackett, a prominent local feminist activist. Hackett is being held on sexual battery charges, after one of his students alleged he groped her at an event on campus. Hackett faced similar accusations in the 1990s, but the woman did not want to press charges.

Organizing the fundraiser were Hackett’s colleagues, friends, and members of Sluts for Justice, a pro-slut legal group that fights for all things law- and slut-related.

A Holiday Gift Idea From The Boutique of Low Goals

by phonaesthetica

-cover edited for truthfulness-

What would life look like FOR MEN if feminism succeeded? Liberal doods have a brand-new book that purports to reveal the mystery: The Guy’s Guide to Feminism by Michael Kimmel and Michael Kaufman. The Michaels – known for Guyland and the White Ribbon Campaign, respectively – have written “a fun, quick read that makes the case that feminism is as good for men as it is for women.” An excerpt:

FIND OUT IF YOU’VE CAUGHT FEMINISM!

Do you believe that women should have the right to:

Steering the Sluts, Moar: 18-Year Old Male Anarchist Organizes Baltimore Slutwalk

by FCM

so here we are again.  another slutwalk, another sex-positive man organizing it, standing behind women (but not in a creepy way!) and supporting womens god-given right to be sexually penetrated by men.  now thats good faux-feminism!  and it gets even better than that: this particular dood as recently as earlier today went by the internet handle “molester” on internet forum “formspring”.  you know, because sexual assault is funny, and stuff and things.  alas, the women who allowed this dood to “help” them pull off slutwalk baltimore probably shouldve done a background check; or at the very least, followed the links he left on his facebook profile, where they wouldve learned about the “molester” thing.  oh well!  im not blaming the women, really; thats just what happens when you do feminist organizing with men.  you have to be super-extra vigilant, and they werent.

Making Revolution: Our Radical Feminist Future

by allecto

Sheila Jeffreys recently guest posted an excerpt of a speech which she delivered at the alternative conference which my partner, Amazon ManCrusher, and myself organised in response to the bullying, harassing and intimidation that radical feminists were facing from pro-sex industry activists and queer/trans activists. In brief, the Melbourne Feminist Collective formed to organise Feminist Futures which was “a conference that aims to provide a safe, supportive and active space for discussing different strategies to create a feminist future. It is an open environment for anyone interested in imagining and creating feminist futures in our community.” The conference organisers were well-intentioned but politically naive, obviously having no idea of the hot water they would be jumping into, trying to organise a conference in which “participants will have the opportunity to critically engage with issues across a broad range of feminist perspectives and agendas.”

Steering the Sluts: Prof. Hugo Schwyzer Organizes Los Angeles SlutWalk — Update

by FCM

SlutWalk, Los Angeles apparently went off without a hitch yesterday, no thanks to hugo schwyzer who as an “organizer” apparently had to negotiate a last-minute “crisis” which was caused by the organizers not making sure all their permits were in order, and that their venue wasnt double-booked, before getting thousands of women to commit their time and energy to this project…

… What About The Men ? …

by Guest Blogger

 Guest Post by Julie Bindel (UK)

I am not a man hater but this is the very last time I will say it in public or in private.

Over the years I have lost count of the number of times I have worked with men to advance the appeal of feminism and to encourage more of them to support our war efforts. Despite this I have lost count of the number of times I have been accused of hating men. “She is a lesbian and a man hater,” wrote one lovely chap on a Blog earlier this year in response to an article I had written on the abuse within prostitution “which is very apparent to anyone who has seen her on television.”
