We predict the next pathetic feminist victory: ‘Lose the Lads’ Mags’

Possibly because they’re starting to lose the gender war, and they can’t stop the rising tide of anti-feminist narratives, feminists are utterly obsessed in winning minor battles (of their own making) in a desperate – yet futile – effort to keep their spirits up. They recently crowed about their successful campaign to shame the Bank of England into putting another woman on British banknotes (Jane Austen will appear on £10 notes from 2017). A fine example of that age-old strategy, ‘winning through whining’. A few lines from feminist icon Jane Austen, from Oxford Book of Quotations:

How horrible it is to have so many people killed! And what a blessing that one cares for none of them! (Letter to Cassandra Austen, 31 May 1811, after the Battle of Albuera, 16 May 1811. ‘Jane Austen’s Letters’ – 1952)

Their next pathetic victory will, we predict, be the ‘Lose the Lads’ Mags’ campaign. They make the utterly absurd claim that lads’ mags – Loaded, Nuts, Zoo etc. – encourage sexist attitudes towards women, and in turn violence against them. Predictably, The Everyday Whining Project is whining about this issue. Everyday.

The feminazis have even threatened to mount legal challenges against the retailers of these magazines, saying the images on the front of them assault the ‘sensibilities’ of female shop workers, who are clearly all fragile hothouse orchids. They’re unconcerned, of course, about the ‘sensibilities’ of male shop workers with respect to images of tall/handsome/well-built/rich men on the front covers of romance novels… maybe they should be banned?

A story about the Co-op’s response to the feminazis’ campaign, on the BBC website today:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23486027

The Co-op, along with a number other retailers, is asking the magazines’ publishers to put the magazines in ‘modesty bags’ which hide the front covers – an understandable (if regrettable) response to angry feminazis’ demands. Of particular interest to me, then, was a typical feminazi response to this proposal:

But campaign group Lose the Lads’ Mags said the Co-op was not going far enough.

Spokeswoman Sophie Bennett said: “The so-called ‘modesty bags’ they are demanding from publishers are designed to allow the Co-operative to continue profiting from sexist, harmful lads’ mags – but just a bit more discreetly.”

This campaign – which will be successful, at least with respect to some retailers – has nothing to do with sexist attitudes towards women. It has everything to do with shaming men for finding attractive women, especially attractive young women, attractive (i.e. objectification). Is that their problem? A rhetorical question, of course.

It’s heartening to see feminazis spending their time and energy on these silly little battles. In the meantime, we can devote our time and energy to winning the big battles, and ultimately the war. I assume a few feminazis have the intelligence to realise they’re inevitably going to lose the war, however much they screech, manipulate, lie and whine. And when they do lose the war, it will be a fine day for all men and boys, and the vast majority of women and girls.

The future’s bright. The future’s non-feminist.

    Are they going to put wrestling mags in a modesty bag? After all, these types of mags are promoting gratuitous violence against men in a way that attracts young boys and encourages them to participate in extremely dangerous acts, which effectively could result in serious injury. They also promote male body image in a way that is entirely similar to female body image in other mags – an issue that largely goes unnoticed simply because men are willing to accept it (goodness knows why!)

    I wonder how many girls have been seriously injured as a result of the publication of lads’ mags compared with the number of boys injured as a result of wrestling mags!
