But when she gets things wrong, well, I’d say she also gets them very wrong indeed.
JB is a mens’ rights activist and an atheist, and I think both of these show in her writings (I do not support a mens’ rights movement. I reject the “victim” mentality). She repeatedly refers to circumcision as male genital mutilation. I find this patently absurd, especially since many males are circumcised for completely health related and entirely nonreligious reasons. She’s also very pro-abortion even though she recognizes the fetus as a human being, a position I find rather sickening.
And I think this article on stripping misses the mark badly, because I think it starts from a false premise.
I’ll save you some time and tell you that the article is about parents who are shocked and outraged that their daughter has been stripping for money and lied to her parents about it (Not, by the way, an insignificant factor).
JB posts several pictures of idiot feminists who strip down to support some dumb pet cause of theirs – you know, anti-fur coats and crap like that.
Then she asks why people aren’t outraged by them, but stripping is looked down upon.
Sorry JB, I reject the premise. I look down on idiot feminists flaunting their tits for publicity AND stripping as a profession. Taking your clothes off for money is a way to manipulate men. You’re not even as honest as the prostitute; at least men get what they REALLY want then. You’re a tease. And while we’re at it, I don’t support the prostitute either. They’re another form of slut, and Sunshine Mary and Dalrock in particular, among others, have done a bang up job showing why sluthood is bad for marriage. Plus, on an entirely moral level, it’s repugnant.
JB writes this:
Would Mom and Dad freak the fuck out if their daughter said she was a full-time activist for PETA and regularly posed naked? I doubt it.
I call BS. Why would you assume that? Why are we assuming anti-stripper=pro-feminist? That’s a false dichotomy, and I’m not playing that game.
Instead, she gets on a stage every night and dances to music
So that’s what the kids call it now?
while removing her clothes
Bingo. The dancing just makes it look sexier. It’s not dancing for art’s sake, and the way she framed the sentence is dishonest. A ballerina’s dancing and a stripper’s dancing are not comparable, and she knows it. That’s the equivalent of the gay rights activist saying, “I don’t know why you oppose two people of the same sex loving each other!”. It’s a re-frame, and I’m not playing that game. Let’s refer to it as what it is: Taking your clothes off for money. Not dancing.
to the delight of her customers. Her male customers. Who pay her handsomely for the pleasure of seeing her body.
What she’s doing is acting as if she wants to have sex with these men. And since the men can’t get sex themselves, for one reason or another, they’ll pay for the play-acting.
Sorry. You’re a slut, but you’re scared to go all the way.
Being a stripper doesn’t make you a woman of loose morals.
Yes, it does, since stripping is in and of itself immoral. Showing off your tits to men who aren’t allowed to touch them is immoral, because these men are not your husband, and leading them on in such a brazen way is dishonest and slutty.
It doesn’t make you psychologically damaged. It doesn’t make you a crazy slut in any way, shape, or form.
BS. They may not be getting cock themselves, but you know those men will be jerking off later. Because of them. And they know it. They’re pleasuring men sexually outside of marriage. They’re sluts.
Things You Should Know About Strippers
A third of them are paying tuition with that cash
Most of them just want to dance
10 % of them are married
20% have dated customers
1. Who cares?
2. As the saying goes, if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.
3. Who cares?
4. Who cares?
Daddy needs to take a step back and consider the fact that a woman who is stripping to pay her tuition is, in fact, making a very smart investment. Her sexual appeal is at its peak, paying interest on loans SUCKS, and avoiding debt at all costs is a very smart thing to do, depending on the ROI, of course.
Divorced from morals, sure. And as “Breaking Bad” showed, depending on your level of need and income, dealing meth is also a very smart investment.
JB then goes on a long tirade about why Harvard economists are idiots and why feminists are idiots. I don’t really disagree with any of that, so I’ll skip to the end.
Men pay women for the pleasure of seeing them dance in very little clothing. Who has the power again?
The reality is that young women, especially young fit women, have an enormous power they can exploit for significant gains, and that power makes an older generation of ladies very, very uncomfortable. Firstly, it does not fit with the powerless victim narrative and secondly, it is a power than wanes as times goes on. Sexual appeal follows an economics, and the value of one’s sexual appeal will depend enormously on the investment one puts in to it.
Which makes it impossible to escape the reality that women have quantifiable, tangible sexual value.
And now by stripping in front of them they’re greatly devaluing their marriage potential despite increasing their sexual value. Again, I point people to Dalrock and Sunshine Mary for the stats on this, but it’s pretty demonstrably true. Men don’t like dating sluts, and when you’ve proven that you’re willing to help men jerk off for money that’s not going to help you.
Not only that, notice the admission here: Stripping is about women gaining power over men. This is a really key point that I don’t think can be overemphasized. It’s a fruit of feminism.
Just look at, for a pop culture example, “How I Met Your Mother”. There was a run when resident cad Barney dated and fell in love with a stripper. Despite her never cheating on him or having sex during her job, Barney saw the stripper’s marriage potential drastically decline as the relationship became more serious, because he became uncomfortable that she was ready and willing to help men jerk off. I don’t remember if this broke up the relationship on the show, but it did cause a huge amount of stress. And it was a perfectly natural reaction that I think most men would share. And what’s wrong with that?
JB then goes over some sort of advice columnist’s letter to the stripper’s parents, and says that she did a “pretty good job”, except when she referred to the men as “leering”.
Please. That’s exactly what they were doing.
Sorry Judgy Bitch. You’re great. But I think you’re way off on this one.
