Perhaps the most embarrassing thing (for feminists) about the UCLA feminists planned walkout was that it followed my discussion of stereotypes of women as emotionally inferior. I argued that it was dangerous to a) create university speech codes that ban “offensive” speech, b) exempt feminists from the codes, and c) enforce the codes only against men who offend feminists. Specifically, I argued that this exacerbates the following stereotype: Feminist women are emotionally inferior to men.
Just minutes after I finished giving a couple of examples, the feminists stood up and stormed out of the room. Maybe some stereotypes are pretty accurate. And maybe readers should refer to conclusion #16 in my book (that it doesn’t take much intellectual firepower to become a feminist).
Those who read only the first chapter of my book read of a silly feminist who tried to convince a secretary to bring charges against me for jokingly calling her an idiot (as we were both laughing at another joke the secretary made at my expense). This was just a few months after the university passed a new “hostile environment” sexual harassment policy.
It should go without saying that there was nothing sexual at all about what I said to the secretary. One could argue that this silly feminist’s ploy to create a personnel issue actually created a hostile environment for me. But instead of charging the feminist I poked fun of her in my new book. (She did not know I overheard her. Nor did she know that the secretary would rat her out for her childishness).
This feminist – who is over fifty years old – clearly owes me an apology for her unprofessional conduct. But, the other day when I passed her in the hall she returned my warm “hello” with a cold and silent stare. There’s really nothing like a dose of condemnation from a moral relativist.
It just goes to show that if you want to learn about feminism all you need to do is read my book. Or just spend some time around university feminists. They never grow up and they never stop confirming my well-reasoned assertions.
