Totally Missing The Irony: Feminist Lectures Men For Failing To Come To The Rescue

Filed under: General — Dana @ 3:52 pm

[guest post by Dana]

Self-described “Godzilla of tech feminists” and co-founder of Giant Spacekat, game designer Briana Wu beautifully illustrates why feminists are not, and should not be taken seriously:


On one hand, Wu and her ilk demand everyone acknowledge men and women are equal in every way, but at the same time, lectures that men are obligated to come to her rescue. And why? Because they’re better at it. She patronizingly accuses men of failing their obligation, while acknowledging they have a strength that women don’t. No wonder men are confused. If women don’t even know the rules of the game, how on earth are men supposed to know?

I am woman hear me roar… no, don’t hear me roar, save my ass instead (but don’t look at it while you’re saving me!)… but while you’re saving me, understand that I am seriously roaring in my heart…

Low hanging fruit.

  8. There is never a man around when you need one.
    (this seems familiar, did this type of a totally unselfaware posting happen last summer?)

    for something nice, though I suspect Wu wouldn’t think so since it is so white,

    Twitter link fixed.

  11. Why didn’t Wu just temporarily identify as male, address the situation, and then go back to female?

  12. White girl problems

    Well, nk, I have a post to go about Hillary having been “schlonged”, but I guess that’s yet another white girl problem, eh? :)

  13. I am woman, hear me whine
    And you may laugh, but that’s a sign
    Of your patriarchal, heteronormative bias

  16. The context of Trump’s remark was her shocking loss to Obama in the 2007 Democrat primary elections. She was the presumptive nominee, inevitable in fact, yet an obscure 1st term Senator knocked her out in very short order.

    Trump said she got schlonged. Well, if she did it was Barack Obama who did the schlonging.

  17. The way I learned it, it loses its impact when said about a lady. It’s not the same extreme degree of humiliation as when a guy gets schlonged by a shvartze.

    nk (dbc370)

  18. She patronizingly accuses men…

    Brianna Wu is a mutilated man. Conservatives complain about the insane velocity of the cultural revolution, but you facilitate it when you let progressives dictate your language.

  19. When trouble comes You are alone. There is no “someone.”

    Why did this happen ? Aside from the foolishness of British tourists going to a country where there was another attack recently. A previous attack killed 19 in March.

    One commenter wondered what Someone was doing while this ‘tragedy’ occurred. “How come there was an alarm raised, carrying that machine gun, it was obvious to the onlookers in the picture. Somebody could have prevented another tragedy in the name of this perverse and ancient religion.”

    Yes, where was that Someone ?

    The West is filled with millions of people like Alex, all of them waiting for Someone.

    Alex, a 23-year-old Sunday school teacher and babysitter, was trembling with excitement the day she told her Twitter followers that she had converted to Islam.

    For months, she had been growing closer to a new group of friends online — the most attentive she had ever had — who were teaching her what it meant to be a Muslim. Increasingly, they were telling her about the Islamic State and how the group was building a homeland in Syria and Iraq where the holy could live according to God’s law.They are the product of a multi-decade campaign to deliberately empty people of their culture; to actually make them ashamed of it. They were purposely drained of God, country, family like chickens so they could be stuffed with the latest narrative of the progressive meme machine. The Gramscian idea was to produce a blank slate upon which the Marxist narrative could be written.

    She is looking for Someone.

    It isn’t just feminists but they are the worst examples.

  20. She’s a plain-Jane, socially inept, computer nerd,
    living in a fantasy Tumblerina world.
    Not a bad girl, just lost outside her bubble.

  21. According to Paula Jones, Clinton was getting sh-sh-sh-shortie’d for years by Slick Willie, if she was getting any at all.

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  22. Can’t wait to see Trump get schlonged, hopefully by Cruz at the convention and not Hillary in November.

    nk (dbc370)

  23. Schlonged by a Hispanic. Venganza! Might get Cruz some Hispanic turnout, too.

    nk (dbc370)

  24. Cruz has plenty of establishment republicans to fight along the way. In Ma. the airwaves are saturated with booosh ads. As well as rubio and now the jersey pumpkin is shelling out his govna bucks to continue his oafish campaign. Plenty of establishment hacks to screw things up for Cruz, nk.

  25. Bob Dylan already dealt with the likes of Ms Wu:

    …You say you’re lookin’ for someone
    Who’s never weak but always strong
    To protect you an’ defend you
    Whether you are right or wrong
    Someone to open each and every door
    But it ain’t me, babe
    No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe
    It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe.

  26. Hold yer mud, lady!!!

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  27. re #19… i’m not sure this is a reiable source, but it IS entertaining…

    redc1c4 (60d4a6)

  28. In Ma. the airwaves are saturated with booosh ads.

    Campaigns saturating airwaves in support of their own candidates, not Cruz? Perish the thought!

    As well as rubio and now the jersey pumpkin is shelling out his govna bucks to continue his oafish campaign. Plenty of establishment hacks to screw things up for Cruz, nk.

    Don’t you just hate it when people who run for president try to win instead of campaigning for someone else? You don’t suppose that’s happened in other election cycles, do you?

  29. Run a search about Wu on Breitbart sometime. Wu is an attention-seeking nitwit. The described incident may not have even happened. Even if it did happen, why should anyone (man or woman) that’s not a law enforcement official be expected to deal with a screaming guy? We’re not talking about an actual attacker or something like those beta males on the subway who stood by while a poor guy got stabbed to death; just a screaming guy. I’m pretty sure that if a civilian interfered and things got out of hand, said civilian would face legal ramifications.

    Memo to everyone who follows Wu on Twitter: you can de-escalate the insane rantings by ignoring that attention-starved nitwit Wu. It’s no skin off my back, but I figure the dopes who follow Wu probably don’t like the idea of Wu making feminists look stupid.

    tops116 (d094f8)

  30. Well, if Brianna is a tranny and not just a two-bagger, it won’t be the first time I’ve been fooled. When I was young and single, I met a gorgeous woman in a bar who invited me back to her apartment. She drove. When we got there, there was no parking in front of her building but there was an empty spot across the street. She made a perfect u-turn and backed into the parking spot perfectly. One turn of the wheel for the u-turn, two to park, smooth as silk. That’s when I woke up to the fact that this could not possibly be a woman. I got out of the car and ran away as fast as I could.

  35. “Missy Wu” by Deely Stan

    Missy tried
    We was halfway crucified
    We was on the other side
    Of no tomorrow
    She walked in
    And the man began to scream again
    Just when I gave the last sh*t
    I could borrow
    All night long
    He would scream that stupid song
    And every word he screamed
    I knew was true
    Are you whining Missy Wu
    Are you really just a shadow
    Of the Nazi I once knew
    Are you crazy are you baked
    Was your man-hate all just faked
    Have you whined until you’re blue
    Are you with me Missy
    Did you throw a hissy

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  36. It’s Brianna Wu so I’m guessing that this event never happened based on her track record of inventing events like this for attention and Patreon money.

    bskb (79fc86)

  37. Dear. This is what you do. Go over to the screaming crazy guy and ask him for a dollar. Be sure and include a tid bit about you being stuck on the wrong side of town.

    That’ll dry him out.

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  38. We’ve allowed this UPTEEEEEEN STANDARD. We as a society have allowed every way, shape, and form of FREAK, to redefine how WE are supposed to behave. OUR NORMALCY is defined as ABNORMAL, wrong, patriachal etc etc etc etc. The real problem is, WE ARE NOT DEBATING the FREAKS. We are SURRENDERING to lying, dysfunctional, cisnormative, ridiculous, illogical and psychologicall DEFORMED losers. We, and I mean AMERICAN SOCIETY, are surrendering to the lowest common demoninator. WE, are afraid to be branded BIGOT. JUDEN as it were.

  39. I wonder what Miss Wu feels about women in combat.

    Robert C. J. Parry (7f3a34)

  40. Yeah right, women have been getting away with being completely illogical just about forever. I have found that in their world view; 1 + 1 will always equal 5,986! And do expect them to put their work down on the test paper either.

    Mike Giles (3dc5b9)

  41. Uh “do” equal “don’t”.

  42. It’s funny to listen to these harridans- They piss and moan when they want to benefit from chivalry, but they’re the ones trying to eradicate it from society.

    Wyowanderer (10a759)

  43. Since Briana Wu IS a dude, why doesn’t he just step up himself? Pretending to be a chick and then demanding that MEN need to step in where he isn’t willing to do himself? He just wants female entitlement privilege.

  45. No wonder men are confused. If women don’t even know the rules of the game, how on earth are men supposed to know?

    Ah, but you do know The Rules — and we have had an uber-secret copy of The Rules since the late Seventies. It has been more closely guarded than Ultra until now…

    The Rules (by Her)

    1. The Female always makes THE RULES.
    2. THE RULES are subject to change without notice.
    3. No Male can possible know all THE RULES.
    4. If the Female suspects the Male knows all THE RULES, she must immediately change some of THE RULES.
    5. The Female is never wrong.
    6. If it appears the Female is wrong, it is because of a flagrant misunderstanding caused by something the Male did or said wrong.
    7. If Rule #6 applies, the Male must apologize immediately for causing the misunderstanding.
    8. The Female can change her mind at any time.
    9. The Male must never change his mind without the express, written consent of The Female.
    10. The Female has every right to be angry or upset at any time.
    11. The Male must remain calm at all times, unless the Female wants him to be angry or upset.
    12. The Female must, under no circumstances, let the Male know whether she wants him to be angry or upset.
    13. The Male is expected to read the mind of the Female at all times.
    14. At all times, what is important is what the Female meant, not what she said.
    15. If the Male doesn’t abide by THE RULES, it is because he can’t take the heat, lacks backbone, and is a wimp.
    16. If the Female has PMS, all THE RULES are null and void and the Male must cater to her every whim.
    17. Any attempt to document THE RULES could result in bodily harm.
    18. If the Male, at any time, believes he is right, he must refer to Rule #5.

    Any questions? [/sarc]

    J.P. (78aaf7)

  46. 19. All the foregoing rules are null and void if the man has money and the woman does not have a certificate of marriage with him.

    nk (dbc370)

  47. You’re right, nk. Money and power make everything else moot.

  48. I have received some serious insults for holding doors open for a few women. I still do it, but I have finally worked out several appropriate responses.

    I might have stood nearby and watched things unfold and possibly dialed 911 but, since I probably wouldn’t know all the details, it would be difficult to intervene without opening up a can of legal worms.

    Were I certain someone faced imminent serious bodily injury, I would probably feel compelled to intervene but I have never found myself in that situation (except when I was assaulted) and I don’t know that Ms. Wu faced that threat. She was afraid but that is not the same thing. Sometimes it is best to leave and let lunatics rant.

    But, I wouldn’t want to be part of the hetero-normative patriarchy oppressing Ms. Wu so I would need to be judicious in deciding to intervene in such an instance.

    We ought to print stickers for people to wear. It might read something like, “I am a feminist in my ‘safe space’ but when the real sh*t starts to go down I want a big strong male to rescue me.” Or, “I am an anti-second amendment idiot until terrorists start shooting up the place and then I want a responsibly armed citizen to protect me.”

    Conversely, I’d like these lunatics to self-identify their positions which might save me a lot of trouble if they wore a sticker like, “I oppose the 2nd amendment so please DON’T use your legal firearm to protect me from any crazy terrorists with illegal firearms!”

    Maybe someone could print t-shirts because the stickers would be hard to read. Or maybe we could do color-coded stickers?

    It all gets so complicated….

  49. Isn’t she a trans-woman as well? Or was that Zoe Quinn?

    MrScience_ (cd3d49)

  50. @50 : “Wu” (their actual last name is Flynt) is indeed M->F.

    Hikaru (0e6466)

  51. While the point being made is valid,
    if the event actually did happen,
    the person’s psychology would explain/fit.

    Wu didn’t identify as a man, so needs a man around to “man up”.
    Not said as an insult, but as a sadness.

    MD in Philly (not in Philly at the moment) (deca84)

  52. It is very charitable to describe Wu as a “game designer” the person has made one crappy game and spent the rest of the time playing victim at every given moment.

    Mr. Saturn (8ec845)

  53. save my ass instead (but don’t look at it while you’re saving me!
