RUSH: There’s a Tumblr hashtag campaign going on. Yes, a hashtag at Tumblr, and it’s called #womenagainstfeminism, and it is causing a furor on the Web.
“The Tumblr site features women holding handmade signs advertising their reasons for opposing feminism in its current incarnation,” i.e., the feminazis. “The movement explains its position to make clear that members are focused on extreme versions of feminism,” which is what feminazis are, “(and possibly to limit the backlash they receive from women — nearly 40 percent of whom still consider themselves feminists).”
But I think the main reason they’re doing this is men. I think these young women don’t want to be thought of as man haters. (interruption) What are you laughing at in there? You can’t possibly disagree with this. These young Millennial women do not want to be thought of as militant, angry, upset, thinking men are making life miserable for ’em. They want lives with men. They don’t want to be thinking men are the problem. They look at modern feminazi-ism and they’re not seeing it. This is predictable, by the way, generational change.
“I donÂ’t think ‘Anti-Feminism’ is some kind of rigid ideology, creed, religion, or doctrine, even a real ‘ism.’ I think itÂ’s just an umbrella term for people who think there is something seriously wrong with the actions of people acting in the name of ‘feminism.'”
This is a quote from one of the young women. “Based on its overall actions, [feminism] is about socially engineering society to give special privileges to women and special punishments to men.”
This is them speaking, the young women. They don’t want to punish men. They want to live with ’em, at least for a day. They look at modern feminazi-ism as angry, punishing, grievance oriented, and they’re not walking around with grievances. And they think that modern feminazis have defined modern feminism, which they have, and they don’t want any part of it.
So they’ve started this hashtag campaign on Tumblr: #womenagainstfeminism. And they are getting hostile reactions, including hostile reactions from Lena Dunham, who is the star of … what’s the name of that show on HBO, Girls? (interruption) Good. Somebody on my staff knew it. Thank you. Lena Dunham is the star of Girls and she is dismissing these women who refuse to fight against the patriarchy.
I’m telling you, folks, when it comes to these militant leftists, I don’t care whether they’re feminazis or whether it’s the race industry, whether they’re militant immigration, I know them. I know them like the back of my hand, and modern feminazi-ism did come to life in the late sixties, early seventies with a rage and anger at all of society, but predominantly powerful men.
It is why, in my Undeniable Truths of Life, number 24 was written. “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.” It was true in 1987; it’s true today. These women don’t want any part of it. They don’t want any part of anger. They don’t want to be blaming men. They don’t look at men as the patriarchy or as the culture. Why would they? They have been dominating college. There are far more women in college than there are men. Men aren’t holding these women back. Not like the old lion feminazis think they were.
So, anyway, they got pictures of these babes. This at NRO for the people at the website, National Review Online, Celina Durgin is an intern who wrote this piece. It’s a long story. I’m not gonna give you all the quotes, but there are three pictures of these women holding up their signs. “I don’t need feminism. I don’t need feminism. I don’t need feminism.” And each of these signs explains why, and I basically have told you why. It’s great to see. It’s really, really great to see.
