Feminists Hate it When Men Are Happy

Feminists: We are strong, empowered, and capable of doing anything a man can do.
Also Feminists: We are too emotionally fragile to handle jokes about lingerie and demand that men be punished for telling them in our presence.

She said she offered to press the floor buttons for people in the elevator, whom she described as mostly conference attendees and all, except one other woman, white middle-aged men. Instead of saying a floor, Lebow smiled and asked for the women’s lingerie department “and all his buddies laughed,” Sharoni wrote in a complaint, the details of which he disputed, to the association later that day.

“After they walked out, the woman standing next to me turned to me and said, ‘I wonder if we should have told them that it is no longer acceptable to make these jokes!” she said in her complaint.

Sharoni, who wrote in her complaint that she has experienced sexual harassment in academe in the past and was shaken by the incident, said it took her a while to figure out that Lebow thought it was funny “to make a reference to men shopping for lingerie while attending an academic conference. I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that we froze and didn’t confront him,” she wrote.

Seriously, a dude making a joke in an elevator causes an academic controversy. He apologized, of course, but the offended feminist has deemed his apology insufficient. Such is the rotted state of academia in this country.

“For decades, women and other marginalized groups in the academy had to put up with white men who decided what counts as a violation and what is ‘frivolous,’” she wrote in an email. “As someone who has dedicated her life to confronting sexism (and other forms of discrimination and oppression) in academic spaces, I cannot and will not remain silent when misogyny is at play.”

Another hyperprivileged white woman appropriating the historical struggles of marginalized groups to feed her own grievances.

As bad or even worse are the male cuck academics rushing to condemn the teller of the bad joke to ingratiate themselves to their feminist overseers.

Alleged news network CNN tweeted this this weekend.

Patriarchy is a social system that defines men as being inherently violent, dominant and controlling while rewarding them with power for being that way.

How about this: “Patriarchy, a term made up by left-wing incompetents to explain away their failures in life. See also racism, white supremacy, homophobia/”

  1. Alrighty then ….. A meeting of the International Studies Association….. what, pray tell, is “International Studies” and why do they need to “associate?”

    The fuss started when Richard Ned Lebow, a professor of political theory at King’s College London, and Simona Sharoni, a professor of women’s and gender studies at Merrimack College, ended up in the same crowded elevator during a conference at a Hilton in San Francisco last month.

    Too rich.

    And political theory is just what? Nevermind, the political theorist pissed off a women’s and gender studies theorist. OMG !!! And …. they were in San Fransico associating over international studies !!!

    Apparently, she is a female and he is a male. Out of 78 genders, what are the chances?

    I wonder how this is handled in North Korea, Iran, China and Sumatra.

  2. These women make me absolutely livid. They are JUST WORDS. My God. This is so darn petty when people are dealing with so many difficult issues in their lives.

    What sad lives these people live. All they do is walk around finding ways to become victims.

    As a woman who thinks like a man, it really disgusts me that these idiot women take offense at every thing. Life is hard enough without having these petty witches thinking they can control every thought and every word coming out of other people’s mouths.

    GET.A.LIFE. Think about someone else except yourself once in a while.

  3. My impression from reading this description is that the laughter came from the sudden switch of mode of operation from shouting out numbers to using descriptive words. The may have also laughed if she had said “power tools”. They just assume that how they react viscerally corresponds to what was in the men’s minds. I’ve done the same thing, but I’ve tried to control my emotions.

  4. These people could ruin the joy of a toddler playing with a puppy — if only you’d give them an oppression context.

  6. @1

    what, pray tell, is “International Studies” and why do they need to “associate?”

    the disingenuous me cannot help but speculate… follow the “research” grant, maybe?

  7. Richard Ned Lebow is 78 years old!

    Locally, a grown woman was traumatized by a vanity plate, “FUKUS”, on a Ford Focus. “Fukus” is a common slam on the reliability of the Ford Focus. She thought it was for “F**k the USA”. She was further traumatized by the AR-14 decal with the words “Assault Life”. This story ran for 3 days on the Progressive newspaper’s website. 100’s of Progressives posted comments as to triggered and traumatized they were for even reading about the “incident”.

  8. @7 I doubt they could survive a 10 minutes coffee break at 8pm in a private tech company environment … which isn’t Google or Twitter, that is.

  9. Humor would have been so much more effective than a hissy fit’ to teach him a lesson’. I would have turned and said something to the effect of “and you look to be a what, size 52A” or “they don’t carry a teddy in your size”.

    As Charlotte said above, Get Over Yourself People.

  10. Little Johnny returns from school and tells his dad he got an F in arithmetic. “Why?” asks the father.
    “The teacher asked ‘How much is 2 x 3?’ and I said, 6.”
    “But that’s right!”
    “Yeah, but she also asked ‘And how much is 3 x 2?’ ”
    “What’s the b*tching difference?!” asks the father.
    “That’s what I said!”

  13. Are there feminist books?
    I thought it was all screeds, diatribes and polemics.
    …Who knew !

  14. Q: How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    1. Only two, but they have to be very, very tiny.
    2. Fifteen. Twelve to collaborate a peer-reviewed thesis that the bulb is oppressing the socket, two to fantasize about being the bulb, one to fantasize about being the socket.

  15. There can be no patriarchy without an overarching straightriarchy, and it privileges heterosexual women over gay men. Checkmate.

  16. Feminists also hate it when pretty girls are happy.
    Feminists import RAPE CULTURE to attack pretty girls for them.

  17. Our age’s feminists have got to hate respectable women — read: women who have self-respect. I cannot see any other conceivable explanation, here.

  18. I think simona sharoni is very sexist to assume Richard lebow is not a gay man that likes to wear lingerie.

  19. Q. Why do men prefer to marry virgins?
    A. They can’t stand criticism.

    Q. What is the biggest problem for an atheist?
    A. No supernatural one to invoke out loud during orgasm.

  20. ” . . . defines men as being inherently violent, dominant and controlling while rewarding them with power for being that way.”

    Dominant and controlling people (if they’re smart they do it nicely) accrue power. It’s How the World Works (cf. Biology). The Left is blind to the fact that they exhibit the exact same behavior, and why wouldn’t they? They’re people, too. Immature and ignorant, but still people.

  21. I could think of a devastating comeback…. say that you are looking for the women’s underwear department to find sleepwear… and mention you are going to donate the clothes to a women’s shelter. I would say that I know that sometimes a woman needs to LEAVE an abusive relationship with just the clothes on the back. What is she going to sleep in at the shelter?

    I’m a macho gay cowboy type, and I actually do this!

  22. I have had to go on panty raids….. running over to K-mart to buy panties for a domestic violence shelter at midnight. Macho gay man with a cowboy hat buying several 3-packs of women’s panties in different sizes.

    First time, I was embarrassed. But, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. Now, I regularly buy Poise for a shut-in who is a friend of mine.

  23. As far as “international studies” goes, I take it to be a variation of international relations or international affairs (my major). My classes were about half political science, a quarter economics, and a quarter history for the countries of my general focus–the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Typical jobs are foreign service officers in the state department and foreign affairs officers in the military.

    We used to have senses of humor–must be the new society.

  24. And, btw, of course, the elephant in the room elevator:

    I wonder if we should have told them that it is no longer acceptable to make these jokes!

    The lady wonder no more. That’s totally alright to omit it… as there must be something like a dozen millions of webpages and hundreds of thousands of hours on tapes to whamensplain us, miserable men, that, NO, that is not OKAYYY any longer.

    But we are thick skulls, at times.

    The skulls at least!

  25. Q: How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    A: None. They keep b*tching in the dark about the passive oppression of the patriarchy that failed to show up and fix the damn thing.

  28. Since she said she will not stand for open misogyny (paraphrase), I’m surprised she has time for a conference. Doesn’t writing to and otherwise complaining about thug culture and their use of b— as a synonym for female take up all her time?

    Oh, yeah. That doesn’t count. You can tell ‘cos she said the elevator was mostly “white males.” Not just males, but “while males” suggesting it would have been fine if they were not the targeted group.
