Feminism Fails

Post by Skeeve » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:09 pm

Germany to consider 'educational state-funded feminist pornography' to combat sexist stereotypes
Germany is considering making state-funded feminist porn and broadcasting it to the public to combat sexist stereotypes.

The material, which would include 'fat, skinny, young and old people' will be available on the websites of public broadcasters ARD and ZDF, if the idea goes ahead.

The proposal was voted on by Angela Merkel's social-democratic coalition partners at a general assembly in Berlin.

It's another version of "why can't Disney have a fat princess".

My concern is less about whether they make this porn available but whether the next step is to ban the other kind: the stuff people actually want to watch. This has already been done without government involvement of course. "Feminist porn" exists on the internet (Rule 34) for those who want to find it.

Sweden’s Sexual Assault Crisis Presents a Feminist Paradox
Sweden prides itself on being a beacon of feminism.
...
But while Swedish women rank among the most equal in the world, they increasingly fear for their physical safety on the streets. Reported sex crimes increased by 61 percent between 2007 and 2016. Meanwhile a rise in gang violence among men–the number of victims injured by gunshots increased by 50 percent between 2004 and 2016–indirectly affects the safety of women. Police admit that rape cases are piling up without being investigated because resources are being drained by gang violence and shootings.

In June, a 12-year-old girl in the small town of Stenungsund reported that she had been dragged into a public restroom and raped by an older boy. Six weeks later the girl had still not been questioned by the police. Even though she believed she had identified the perpetrator, the police had yet to pay him a visit.

“We have so many similar cases,” a spokeswoman of the local police told the Swedish public television channel SVT on September 12, “and there are so few of us, that we simply don’t have the time.” She continued: “We have rape victims three years old,” and even their cases await investigation.

How is inadequate investigative resources a failure of feminism?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

It seems to be a question of fails that somehow impact some feminists.

And the first one on the list isn't a fail. Some feminists got public funding for it. 8)

Fat chick porn and grannie porn already exist.

And it's fucking horrible, no scripts and nobody knows how to act. Worst improvisational female acting since Ghostbusters (the new one).

It isn't. Skeeve is trying to facetiously blame it on the 'spokespussy' cited in the quote.

Not that there is anything wrong ... with ... pussy. Think of them as inverted penises... on a mission from Gawd. Or Beelzebub. Just ask Bruce. He knows about these things from unfortunate first hand experience.

Well gnome, the government allocates resources etc etc, right?

From their website, it seem that...

Sweden has the first feminist government in the world.

At least until they get voted out that is...

"Sweden has the first feminist government in the world. This means that gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities – in decision-making and resource allocation. A feminist government ensures that a gender equality perspective is brought into policy-making on a broad front, both nationally and internationally. Women and men must have the same power to shape society and their own lives. "

Even if it means letting the rape of young girls go uninvestigated for 6 or more weeks!

Because Feminismz!

I might be willing to entertain a connection if someone could describe how that doctrine was applied to the priorities in this case.

Otherwise it's a lot of post hoc reasoning.

I consider it a tendency to call out a skip in a chain of reasoning.

Specifically:

1. Sweden's government is run by feminists. (I'll accept that as a given)
2. The government controls how resources are allocated (Again, given)
3. The government made these choices: XXXXX in allocating resources to crime investigation.
4. Resources are inadequate for investigating these reports.

I think it is step 3 that is not fleshed out, and I consider it the most important step.

Well you've asked:
How is inadequate investigative resources a failure of feminism?
Without context I would answer: It's not.

However, since the context here is Sweden the answer is: It's a failure of feminism based on Sweden's own criteria.
Sweden has the first feminist government in the world. This means that gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities – in decision-making and resource allocation.

And I would ask what principles of gender equality affected police resources. I realize that they are responsible for whatever principles they applied. I just want to know what they were.

I thought of a better way to say it--despite its mission statement, the government is not single-natured, neither are its failings.

If we presume that feminism caused trouble in police resources because the government strives to be feminist, we risk looking in the wrong place for solution. The problem may be unrelated. Surely they might have difficulties besides any inherent in feminism.
