Recently, I gave a speech at UCLA that was attended by about two dozen feminist students (and a lot more non-feminist students). The behavior of these feminists goes a long way towards explaining why few take modern (or postmodern) feminism seriously. And they provide strong confirmation of some of my recent assertions about feminist intolerance.
Shortly before I began my speech at UCLA, a couple of dozen university women entered the auditorium together. They sat together in silence during the first part of my speech. I told a few jokes and noticed that almost everyone was laughing – except, of course, for the women who came in together and sat together. Their inability to laugh clued me in to the fact that they were feminists. They already have seminars teaching feminists how to have orgasms. Maybe they should be replaced with seminars teaching them how to laugh.
Right after the UCLA feminists confirmed conclusion #4 of my new book (that most feminists do not have a sense of humor) they confirmed conclusion #7 (that feminists generally lack the courage to act as individuals). This occurred when all twenty-something of the twenty-somethings got up and left the room without saying a word.
Most people reading this column have stormed out of a room after hearing something they did not like. But most did so years before learning how to read – probably at the age of two or three. Unfortunately, feminists never learn that storming out of a room makes one look childish. It only lends credence to those critics who would assert that feminism is less of an ideology than a mental disorder.
The decision of the UCLA feminists to storm out of the room was not a direct confirmation of conclusion # 19 from my book (that feminists are the biggest censors on college campuses today). But it does show that their love for the First Amendment is lacking. And they certainly lacked the courage to stick around for the Q and A session. The black students always stick around to discuss race and the dialogue is always informed. The feminists, however, are just too emotionally distressed to stick around and talk it out (please refer back to conclusion #7).
