stupidburningThe abject fuckwittery of some people never fails to astonish.  Somewhere in the universe the being in charge of giving clues just died a little on the inside.  I shall deal only with the header from this particular cesspool of a blog.  We’ll just file this under I’ll pull remarkably erroneous shit out of my ass and whinge about it in public ad nauseam.

Feminism – denotes women who want to be men and who act in a totally unfeminine manner, so feminism is the opposite of its definition.

This construction made entirely of straw seems to be the guiding principle of what this clueless individual goes on about. The only thing missing in this particular site is multicolour flashing html tags to really drive home the point.

Challenging rape culture, and ‘reclaiming’ ‘slut’ are two separate, and largely incompatible things, and it’s main achievement seems to have been to create a means for sex industry advocates to propagandise to young, impressionable women who’s idea of feminism doesn’t extend beyond ’empowerment’ and ‘choice’.
