A couple months ago I was in a graduate cinema studies course when a fellow student called me out as a sexist. My only crime was being a fan of Alfred Hitchcockâ€™s films, which she (and other misguided feminists) feel are full of misogynistic male heroes. After telling me she was offended by Jimmy Stewartâ€™s allegedly â€œheroicâ€ character in Vertigo, she ranted about how women are oppressed by showering me with rape statistics.
When I responded to my classmate, telling her that not all male leads are â€œheroesâ€ and some films are instead meant to be a cautionary tale (i.e. Vertigo,) she told me that it was not my place to discredit her. Excuse me?! When someone calls me a sexist because I like one of the most critically acclaimed films of all time I am certainly within my rights to defend myself.
Feminists hate acknowledging criticism because they fear exposure. They only use womenâ€™s rights or equality as a disguise. It is packaged and sold as an advocacy group for the advancement of women. However, the truth is it fights to abolish the “oppressive” notion of gender in America just as communists want to demolish the social class structure. Feminism is nothing but a Marxist school of thought that only brings down the women it claims to help.
On Monday night, Red Eye Host Greg Gutfeld commented:
â€œGender feminists believe that being female is a social construct, internal sex organs be damned.Â And all life amounts to is the struggle between the powerless female against the evil patriarchal man.â€
It may surprise you the number of gender studies programs indoctrinating students with Marxist ideals across the country (Read David Horowitzâ€™s One Party Classroom.)Â Each one is no stranger to controversy.Â At DePaul University, the department of â€œwomenâ€™s and gender studiesâ€ faculty and students are angry because their own Professor Melissa Bradshaw was denied tenure.
Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld responds:
â€œHere we have an awesome collision of two idiotic practices.Â Tenure, which allows professors to pursue ideas that would fail in a world of measurable achievement and gender studies, where earnest types angrily analyze the sexes (usually while wearing panties made from hemp).â€
The Chicago Tribune reports:
â€œBradshaw is one of four faculty members who were rejected — because they are women, they say. Their attorney notes that of seven faculty members turned down for tenure this year out of 33 up for consideration, five were women (her clients plus one other who has chosen not to fight the decision).â€
It appears Bradshawâ€™s only way to justify her dismissal without risking exposure is to play the gender card. Why canâ€™t she acknowledge the credibility of her teachings?Â Itâ€™s simple: she canâ€™t justify her programs of Marxist indoctrination.
The corrupt advocates of this so-called feminism force upon their students that gender (and its oppressive nature) is socially constructed. Therefore, any problems that arise from gender are only fixed by the collapse of the society that built it.Â There is no denying the destructive force driving feminism here. Everyone should be aware of its true motivations:
No matter what spin the “feminists” throw at us, there is no denying the Marxist lens it is taught through in American universities. If only someone enlightened my classmate about the pitfalls of feminism we could have had a great discussion about film (like we were supposed to) instead of being subjected to a feminist rant.
