Earlier this week, I wrote about misogynists using Alyssa Milano’s proposed #SexStrike as “proof” that women are manipulators at heart, continually using sex — and the withholding of sex — to get what they want from men.
Now Andrew Anglin. head skinhead at the Daily Stormer, is offering a similar if somehow even worse take on the not-very-well-thought-out #SexStrike. As he sees it, the hypothetical strike — which no one is actually participating in, as far as I can tell — is “an admission that women are all prostitutes, fundamentally.”
In Anglin’s mind, Milano is “openly admitting that sex is a commodity that women trade for personal gain.” Women have such “low sexual needs,” Anglin mansplains, that they’re less interested in sex for pleasure — outside of the occasional romp with a convenient Chad — than they are in trading it
for various things they desire. This is literally the only logical thing a woman is capable of working out. And it isn’t really logic, so much as instinct.
Anglin imagines that, in the Good Old Days,
[w]omen would trade sex to men in exchange for marriage, which amounts to a man making a lifetime commitment to care for a woman materially. … The species continued and people were generally happy.
We’ll just have to set aside the fact this this is basically nonsense, because Anglin evidently believes it’s true. And, like all reactionaries, he also believes that society has degenerated from this Golden Age equilibrium. He blames this Fall on the fact that women today have money of their own, and don’t have to throw themselves on the mercy of the first man who proposes to them in order to survive.
Anglin is so extravagantly misogynistic that he thinks this money is basically stolen from men to give to women, paid out either “through welfare [or] by forcing private companies to hire women for jobs they are incapable of performing.”
Yep, in Anglin-world, the jobs that women perform are fake, make-work jobs. The woman who taught you history in college; the woman who drove the bus you rode to work this morning; the woman who drew your blood at the hospital — apparently they’re all just play-acting. If you’re a woman and you think you have a real job, you’re evidently just kidding yourself.
Oh, and apparently you working girls are all using “sex or the unfulfilled promise of sex for the purpose of manipulating men in order to fulfill [your] personal goals in the workplace.” At least until you realize your looks are fading, at which point you all glom onto the nearest beta male who will marry you and “pay for [your] life.”
Hey, I read it in the Daily Stormer; it must be true.
Anyway, after all this, Anglin gets to the crux of his argument, which is that women are basically useless, shitty people who are only good for sex and making babies.
Modern society has created a gigantic illusion that [women] are contributing through various affirmative action and welfare programs, but anyone who steps back for even a minute and surveys the situation will recognize that they are worthless.
Women exist purely for the purposes of sex and reproduction, and for assisting men in menial tasks, such as picking fruit, cooking meat and washing clothing. Modern technology has made most of their functions obsolete. And yet there they are in the workplace, doing nothing, looking confused, getting in men’s way, making outrageous demands.
The only way to fix these (completely imaginary) problems, Anglin suggests, is through his own version of “enforced monogamy,” pushing women off welfare and out of their workplace and forcing them back into traditional marriages with hard-working woman-haters like him.
Alyssa Milano’s protest draws attention to the fact that women’s only real commodity is sex, and the sooner we all admit that her instincts here are correct, the sooner we can get back to a stable society, where families are strong and children are raised in a safe and healthy environment ruled over by a masculine father.
It’s always a little amusing to hear Nazis going on about creating “stable societies.” The Third Reich lasted 12 years. I’ve got underwear that’s lasted longer than that. (Well, t-shirts, at least.)
And, I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least the original Nazis had a slightly more reality-based notion of the contributions of women to society than Anglin, who’s going to have a hard time creating a stable anything with the motley assortment of delusional incels he’s going to draw to his internet Nazi club with posts like these.
