Cassie Jaye’s transformation from self-identifying as a feminist to a girl who no longer likes to call herself one is as honest a metamorphosis as I’ve ever seen. And here was I thinking millennials have an aversion to thought.

Jaye shot to fame after making her groundbreaking documentary The Red Pill, where she documents her own journey out of feminism and into a young woman sympathetic to men’s rights activist (MRA) groups such as “Men Going their Own Way” and “A Voice for Men.” This became a journey that Jaye now terms ‘the rabbit hole’.

Jaye started to research MRAs, groups she perceived to be women haters, to try to understand how they had managed to garner so many followers. She believed they were the most aggressively misogynistic men on the planet; men who were regressive in their views and wanted women to be chained back to a 1950s ideal of existing barefoot, pregnant and acquiescent to the male patriarchy (though I would argue that women in the 50s never were quite this way).

Over the course of making the film Jaye found that the facts showed men and boys in feminist cultures are now in crisis. While pouting women like to point out nearly every other day that they are seen as sex objects, men are seen as success objects and they just have to suck it up. That may be one reason why, according to statistics, men on average die a full five years earlier than women do.

Every successful society trains its boys to be disposable – disposable in war as warriors, disposable on oil rigs as workers, as firefighters, as miners and therefore indirectly disposable as husbands and fathers. The power that men have in their different gender role is not the kind of power that feminists like to spin it as. In one year, out of the 4,584 odd people killed on the job, 93% of them are male. Feminism may identify accurately that the world sees male work as more valuable, but it also sees male life as less valuable than female life. Nobody cares that highly dangerous work is nearly always within the purview only of men while women take a free pass, yet women still equally enjoy the products and benefits to civilisation that such dangerous work brings. Jaye’s film references a related observation about the jet airliner expertly piloted by Chesley Sullenberger (Sully) into an emergency landing on the Hudson River: the women and children were rescued off the submerging plane first – this is common emergency practice (the eeevul patriarchy still retains a chivalrous streak it seems).

Then Jaye starts to hear about the legal bias in family courts that heavily favours mothers over fathers, turning the fathers into little more than weekly pay cheques without even visitation rights in many cases – if ever objectification existed, it’s right here.

One man shares his story of a wife with whom he refused to have children because she had a rampant anger problem, which he figured would become a major issue in their relationship if they became parents. He told her he wouldn’t have children with her until she underwent successful counselling. When she tricked him into conceiving a child without his consent, her narrative then became, “You can see your son so long as you stay in a relationship with me.” He opted for separation and entered a custodial battle that went on for fourteen years. She used the child as a weapon of control right down to intentionally keeping their son obese so that he felt he would identify more with her side of the family – who were fatties – rather than with his father’s side. It was also a weapon of control so that he would ‘like’ his mother more than his father, since Dad enforced discipline around eating and outside exercise. Even the son’s physician expressed concern about the boy’s weight, but a judge’s decision was made that Dad was forbidden to weigh his son while the boy was in his care. After too many years of battling for custody with these despicably manipulative tactics in play, Dad got physically sick and gave up the fight, but of course not the alimony payments.

Jaye discovers in her film that tragic family court abuses of fathers like this one are just the very tip of a jagged and mountainous iceberg.

The idea that women and girls are oppressed in our societies by a bogeyman patriarchy is just a dirty lie designed to vilify men. While Western culture indulges in this askew obsession by constantly wailing about perceived inequalities where women are the eternal victims, The Red Pill heroically goes some distance toward setting the story a little straighter.

Hoover on Engineering

In response to the comment that "Feminism Kills":

The great liability of the engineer compared to men of other professions is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. His acts, step by step, are in hard substance. He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave like the doctors. He cannot argue them into thin air or blame the judge like the lawyers. He cannot, like the architects, cover his failures with trees and vines. He cannot, like the politicians, screen his shortcomings by blaming his opponents and hope the people will forget. The engineer simply cannot deny he did it. If his works do not work, he is damned.

As a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) myself, I can tell you that the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) will not be very kind to anyone in the responsible firm regardless of gender or ethnicity:

I want to caution readers not to leap to conclusions since the root cause may have been due to other factors unrelated to engineering design, e.g. contractor fraud using faulty materials, etc.

Back in its heyday, before it became The Atlas Society, David Kelley's organization published an excellent cover story in its hard copy magazine about engineering ethics and how reality can never be evaded.

I work with women engineers who have competent technical skills, so I reject the idea that women have no place in construction.

no wonder all Matriarchal societies went extinct.
This is terrible! What a horrible cost to pay for "diversity."

Feminism Kills

Ugly Wimmin built that bridge:

“It’s very important for me as a woman and an engineer to be able to promote that to my daughter because I think women have a different perspective. We’re able to put in an artistic touch and we’re able to build too.”

The Red Pill is a MUST WATCH

Not only will you learn things you may not have known, but your $10 is a moral reinforcement for this brave young woman. Then watch her talk with Stefan. Here's a woman who has realized she has been miseducated all her life, and now she is seeking out the other side. That's not to say she necessarily agrees with Stefan, but that she is now open to ideas outside of the orthodoxy of public opinion.

The Philosophies of Feminism and Egalitarianism

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Great essay, Olivia! Smiling Feminism and egalitarianism are two philosophies which seem to be really killing the world. In my judgment, we need far more individualism, meritocracy, truth-seeking, and merciless truth-telling.

I think feminism is the open enemy of men, but the secret enemy of women. Feminism argues that men are scum generally, and the enemies of women particularly. Males are inherently far inferior, if not biological cripples, they say.

But the truth is men and women have differing strengths and tastes which naturally compliment each other. They generally work well together -- in a trading and mostly-equal relationship -- and they can make each other hugely happy in ways which two of the same gender can't. The key seems to be learning about, and catering to, the divergent nature of the other.

In my view, feminism is mostly a form of sexism and bigotry, which doesn't enlighten or empower women, but instead makes them confused, frustrated, angry, lonely, and sad.

ain't that the truth! The narrative today always speculates that the 50's woman was a little backward mouse. That would've been news to Ava Gardner or Katharine Hepburn... let alone Zsa Zsa! Smiling Their feminine confidence was incredible compared to today's movie stars who all have to screw Weinstein for a role!

Yes Bede...

It seems we have to keep making the same points every 20 years or so - for the sake of the new generation.
Groan. Smiling

"(though I would argue that women in the 50s never were quite this way)."

All the old movies firmly attest to that.
