Feminism: Pride or Ultimate Humility?

Yes, I'm being facetious.

In a rather indirect way, I owe this finding to Elusive Wapiti. He is right that when the it truly feels like there's nothing left to hope for, you come across something that just gives you a tiny bit of hope.

Check out this piece.

I can't fathom how a society as narcissitic as ours managed to churn out such a group of self-haters. Check out the following (emphasis mine):
The gist of Les Knight’s argument is this: that the biosphere, for reasons of which we are all only too painfully aware but usually prefer not to dwell on too much, simply cannot sustain human beings in any way, shape or form; the only responsible action is to gracefully admit this and bail out now, through attrition, before we’ve completely obliterated what was once a pretty nice planet. As long as there remains a single breeding pair of humans, Knight avers, the danger of a destructo-human flare-up exists, so the only acceptable number of human inhabitants is zero..

So...what's the point of a "pretty nice planet" if there's no one to enjoy it?

You think the animals have the capacity to gain any aesthetic pleasure out of the planet? Actually, they probably do! After all, animal and plant life is far superior to human life!

Oh...and my ultimate FAVORITE feminist sentiment:
In response to [being a mother is a woman's highest calling], Knight delightfully suggests that holding such a view means you’ve been “beguiled into believing compliance is noble free choice.”

/sigh/ I truly do wonder how some people can be so incredibly WILLFULLY deceived by the master of all lies.

Pretty nice planet. Full of predators and other things that make things not so hospitable for people.

Nature is cruel. It lacks a heart and mercy. And it is rigidly Darwinian in the sense of survival of the strongest/fittest.

Why don't these folks just go off themselves and leave the living to those of us who deserve to be here and multiply just as much as the next species.

"’ve been “beguiled into believing compliance is noble free choice.”"

Bwahahahaha! Compliance!? Compliance with what?? Does anyone out there really think that anyone can force a Western woman to bear a child against her will??? The truth is, and these idiots can't accept it, that nearly all women want to have children, even if they are only aware of this on the unconscious level.
