The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Hate Porn for Feminists

by W.F. Price on December 29, 2011

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, known in Swedish as Män som hatar kvinnor, or “men who hate women,” was recently released in an English language version, starring renowned drag queen and James Bond actor Daniel Craig. So far, despite the success of the original in Sweden, the film has been doing poorly in the US, perhaps because most Americans don’t care much about Sweden.

However, it is possible that the theme has been overplayed in recent years, and people are no longer willing to buy into the conspiratorial premise. A Steve Sailer review in Takimag calls it “The Da Vinci Code of the 2010s, only with more anal rape,” and in describing the heroine suggests the film is a bit dated:

The second is his young research assistant, Lisbeth Salander, who comes equipped with every add-on that turned on geeky former sci-fi fanzine editors such as Larsson in female fantasy figures back in the 1990s.

Think Trinity in The Matrix, but with even more attitude. Lisbeth has genius computer-hacking skills, a black wardrobe and a black motorcycle, hand-to-hand combat techniques that let her deal out cruel vengeance upon men twice her 100 pounds, piercings, a mohawk, and lesbianism (until she’s exposed to the journalist hero’s recessive charm).

But this isn’t the 1990s anymore, so the appeal of such dusty clichés has drifted up the age range.

Due to the hubbub over the movie, I watched the original (Swedish) version to see what it was all about, and found it even worse than I’d anticipated.

Although Swedish professionalism is evident in the execution, the story itself is such pure fantasy that it’s difficult to suspend disbelief, and it quickly degenerates into a Nazi exploitation porn flick, in which monstrous Swedish, Christian, white-supremacist, racist, capitalist, billionaire Nazi misogynists murder and rape with impunity for some seven decades, mainly targeting religious and ethnic minority females.

The book the film is based on was written by Stieg Larsson, a Communist graphic designer with a persecution complex who devoted much of his life to attacking the Swedish right wing, hence the obsession with the postwar left’s usual bogeymen. But Larsson takes it to a new level, reviving the Bolshevik propaganda he thrived on as a young man, when he spent time arming and training African female soldiers (i.e. cannon fodder) for the Marxist-feminist Eritrean People’s Liberation Front.

In Larsson’s fantasy, Sweden is a dangerous place, especially for women. Heroine Lisbeth Salander, a techno-punk type who could have come straight out of The Matrix, is attacked in the beginning of the film by right-wing hooligans in a subway station, and despite being outnumbered and underweight, fights them off. She is then sexually abused by her “guardian” (she is apparently under state supervision for being a head case), who forces her to perform oral sex in return for access to her own money, and then anally rapes her when she comes back for more. In addition to being tough and sexy (and lesbian!), Lisbeth is a genius computer hacker. Her character, as Sailer pointed out, is essentially a cliché of the typical computer geek fantasy girl.

The hero, Mikael Blomqvist, is a left-wing journalist (a stand-in for Stieg Larsson himself) who has been set up by a wealthy capitalist pig and subsequently convicted of libel. Following his conviction, he is hired by Henrik Vanger, a wealthy, elderly man, to solve the 40-year-old murder of his niece. Lisbeth, who was tasked with checking out Blomqvist for Vanger, hacks into his computer. When she sees what he is doing she helps him with the case, and soon the two are both working and sleeping together.

Together, the duo uncover a serial murder spree stretching over decades. The murders are tied together by a Christian theme, which is uncovered by Lisbeth, who has a phenomenal memory and recognizes the Bible verses jotted down by the victim they are investigating. Soon, they learn that the Vanger family has Nazi connections, and that some of the victims were Jewish, and were sacrificed according to Deuteronomy’s codes. The film goes on along these lines until the end, portraying Sweden as a dark, bigoted place, plagued with incest, drunkenness, rape and murder.

Despite the Nazi background, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is above all a feminist work. The original Swedish title – Men who hate women – makes that clear, and the overriding concern is with victimization, penetration, power — all the usual feminist tropes. There is plenty of symbolism, as well as a bit of gender-bending; the sex scene when Lisbeth first sleeps with Blomqvist has her on top, and she is the tough, confident partner in the relationship. Lisbeth also lacks Blomqvist’s compassion, and has little compunction about despatching villainous men. In one scene, which may have inspired Tiger Woods’ ex Elin Nordegren, she smashes the windows of a fleeing villain’s car with a golf club. Her tattoo, from which the English title is derived, is a grotesque, hideous affair that covers her entire back, and her face is festooned with metal hoops and trinkets in the techno savage chic that was popular until some ten years ago. She looks, to put it bluntly, like the kind of dyke junkie one might have found in some basement punk club on the West Coast circa 1997.

One might ask why, given the fact that Sweden may well be under the most feminist regime on the planet, a lefty author would go to such great lengths to depict the place as a hotbed of rape and misogyny. You’d think that since gender equality is the law of the land in Sweden, and women have become the more equal of the two sexes there, there would be little need to frighten people with fairy tales about sadistic Nazi misogynists. But this would be to assume that feminists are rational, reasonable people rather than paranoid, power-hungry zealots. Without a burning hatred for and fear of men, feminism would burn out in short order. The only way to keep the movement alive is to stoke the fires of this hatred, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is meant to do exactly that. With its blend of pornography, vengeance and victimization, it stirs the passions that have long fueled feminism in the West.

This theme is explored brilliantly in the Hollywood interpretation of Epic Beard Man, as examined in this self-flagellating essay :

Sometimes I wish that the author was still alive, and would live long enough to see Sweden REALLY become a rapist’s paradise – entirely due to the influx of muslims that lefties like him enabled and applauded (already at least 85% of the rapes are committed by immigrant muslims, even though they comprise 5% of the population). The resulting cognitive dissonance he would experience would be delicious to behold.

Islam vs. feminism will be one of the great battles of this century.

I hear ya Uncle Elmer!
The un-realistic portrayal of nowadays-non-existent “skinhead” gangs roving inner cities was one of the factors that made the Kevin Bacon film DEATH SENTENCE a farce (and a flop at the box office).

I guess Hollywood is too P.C. to risk portraying modern day villain types even in fiction storylines. One most recent example is the re-make of RED DAWN~ Hollywood liberals decided to recast the invaders as North Korean instead of Red Chinese so as to not offend the communists who hold a trillion in US debt! :(

Thanks for the review. I read Sailer’s last night.

I actually tried to read the book a few months ago, knowing full well what it was about, expecting the tone and content to be blatantly anti-male. I went into it as open and disinterested as I could manage, and couldn’t finish it. It’s not due to the plot line, either. The English translation (I can’t read the Swedish original) is dreadful, boring, tedious crap. The narrative dwells endlessly upon various meaningless details and the storyline is incredibly difficult to follow. An unreadable, unwatchable bit of fluff.

Whilst their fathers are held off at gun-point answering to trumped up charges of imagined violence, niggerized kids continue rapeing, shooting and stabbing at each other or at bystanding victims above ground, below on the subway systems and in the housing projects; …

Whilst their culturally empowered and morbidly embittered mothers jump from bedroom to bedroom riding the cock carousel, their daughters as lesbo-feminist punks and tattooed she-rockkers are glamorously depicted expressing hatred, vengance and violence in B and C rate movies, directed and produced by homoerotic bastards; …

Whilst Rome, London, Paris, Stockholm, Lisbon, Madrid, Athens, Helsinki, Dublin, Athens, Washington, New-York, Paris and Berlin sink under unbearably burdensome debt and moral squalor, a political elite of ever submissive cowards, liars, theives and intimidated manginas in office and authority , continue ever borrowing larger and larger sums with which to flatter and decieve the female constituency; …

… The only certainty in this ongoing socialist hell, this genderist defacement, this femaleist sin against nature and right, this implosive cultural degeneracy, this political befoulment of a peoples bodies and their minds with poison is, that men will be blamed and blamed and blamed and blamed forever; … Whatever and however nasty or depraved the eventual outcome, it is men whom will shoulder the blame for it.

“of course, if we were to imagine that every film, every book, every everything in popular culture were entitled “men who hate women” everything would look differently wouldnt it? everything would start to make sense. and that we simply cannot have.”

@ Craig Himself:

There are about 500,000 muslims in Sweden, which has a total population of 9.4 million (2010 census).

http://majorityrights.com/weblog/comments/muslim_rape_wave_in_sweden/

“According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Brå, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants. In Norway and Denmark, we know that non-Western immigrants, which frequently means Muslims, are grossly overrepresented on rape statistics. In Oslo, Norway, immigrants were involved in two out of three rape charges in 2001. The numbers in Denmark were the same, and even higher in the city of Copenhagen with three out of four rape charges. Sweden has a larger immigrant, including Muslim, population than any other country in northern Europe. The numbers there are likely to be at least as bad as with its Scandinavian neighbors. The actual number is thus probably even higher than what the authorities are reporting now, as it doesn’t include second generation immigrants. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who has investigated violent crimes in Svea high court, found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents.”

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/05/norway-muslim-rapist-tells-victim-that-in-islam-women-have-no-rights.html

“Numerous rapes in Sweden over the past several years have been committed by “non-Western men,” e.g., Muslims. In fact, in the past year, ALL RAPES IN OSLO have been committed by non-Western men. (OK, so that’s Norway, but it’s really close to the Swedish border – meistergedanken)….Meanwhile, all rapes in Norway in the last five years have been committed by…uh…”non-Western immigrants,” the latest euphemism for Muslims.”

@ namae nanka

From reading the post you linked and the goings on at the good puppy project it seems the femi-nazi’s are purging the male feminist, they must be preparing for changes no fair minded or even self hating pussy begging man could handle.

One thing I do agree with is that some things are unforgettable. I don’t know if rape is, some men hear who have been raped might be able to speak to this….

….but the ripping sensation of having your child removed because you lack the politically correct plumbing is something men don’t seem to be able to forget.

You might be right, W.F. – I have neither seen the film nor read the novel – but it would be perhaps a mistake to take these sort of things too literally. Take Sherlock Holmes for instance: all the murders in Holmes take place in London’s West End (the rich part) – whereas we all know that most murders (Jack the Ripper) take place in the poor part; the East End, where Holmes never ventures – one has to only consider Midsomer Murders (a popular T.V. series) where each week in a sleepy Oxfordshire village there are no less than four murders (never suicides). They don’t set murder mysteries in the ghetto!

Larsson, by the way, has recently died, has he not?

I’ve limited for time as the black Suburbans with tinted windows are pulling up in from of my house (see comment in previous thread), but the only movies making any money these days are family animated kid flicks and guy action hero flicks. RomCom chick flicks make money only because they’re so cheap to make to begin with.

The Jujitsu/Karate enabled, computer genius, whip-smart chick fictional character never really caught on, but Hollywood insists on promoting the superior “empowered female” meme in it’s effort to prime the feminist pump in the minds of little girls, regardless of how much money it costs them.

It’s evident our society can’t even imagine female super-heroes in it’s wildest fantasies. Because the actual behavior of real-life females in our everyday lives informs us and perpetually reminds us of the stark realities we face. Women are not excelling and they’re not leading, they’re doing what they’ve always done best, complain about men.

OT -

All those “independent” career women in California need you to pay for their maternity care.

A new law that forces all insurance providers to provide and charge for coverage just went into effect. Previously single men and older women could choose a less expensive plans that did not include maternity coverage.

How’s the New Law Going to Affect Small Business in 2012

SB222 outlines how the health insurers are doing business in California? The law will take effect on July 1, 2012.

The new law requires all Health insurance providers who do business in California to provide maternity coverage, such as prenatal care; maternity services; inpatient hospital maternity care…..

Individuals normally are favor of given the option to choose the maternity coverage or not. The option of non maternity coverage which would keep the premium lower would be ideal to some, especially to those 50+ individuals. Under the new law, Health insurance policy will no longer be offered non maternity coverage plan.

I travel often for my job and therefore read a lot. They’ve been shoving these types of regurgitated books at the airports regularly. I didn’t even bother picking it. Like you said, there’s no chance of finishing it.

Even the books that supposedly have a hero instead of heroine run along the same theme. The girl/woman in the book is always preceded with three paragraphs of positive adjectives before she makes a move. A woman doesn’t just open the door in novel-land, she confidently glides to the door with a self assurance borne of natural grace and a fiercly independent spirit.

The “hero” books these days even seem to end with the woman/girl saving the hero. Out of the last ten novels I’ve picked up at the airport I think I’ve finished one.

I read the book earlier this year and kind of enjoyed it (just a little). The mystery plot was enough to keep me reading and it was an easy read. Even though I scoffed at all the grrrl power cliche’s of Lisabeth Salander and didn’t quite understand how this author could so blatantly lie about WW2 Nazism in Germany, I stuck with it. The climax proved to be a bit disappointing, but I still managed to get my hands on the sequel…that proved to be the most ridiculous piece of literature I’ve ever seen.

It goes even further down a path of misandry disguised as misogyny. The white-male/capitalist pig hating was totally baffling and ignored reality completely. It painted every female character to be this saintly heroine who could do better than any man could at anything, while every male character was either a rapist/capitalist pig or severally emotionally flawed (even the main character, Bloomkvist). I lasted about 150 pages and remember throwing the book at my wall, never to touche it again. The fact that this was written by a man is both astonishing and disappointing.

I viewed that movie, and while it was entertaining, it was offensive at the same time. Each of the four principle male characters were morally flawed in some way, three of them extremely so.

On the one hand, this film is nostalgia for the days that women really believed they were morally better than men. The fact that this movie is doing so poorly is a testament to the dying of that mentality.

I’ve seen the trailers for this feminist piece of trash, but never knew anything more about it. While reading your review, I couldn’t help but think it must be a parody of some sort. Images of MASH came to mind, a show about soldiers that parodied the Vietnam War. I found myself asking whether this could be a book/movie about feminists that is so over the top that it is actually intended to be a criticism of feminism. then I came back to reality. It’s probably just more male-bashing and man hating designed to perpetuate the myth that all men are evil and more ass-kicking feminism is what’s needed. A feminists work is never done.

@NWO Slave,

Dump the modern heroine books. Many modern books are increasingly PC and well simply garbage. Fortunately, there have been a large number of great adventure or other fiction books written throughout history, and many relevant ones written the past 50-200 years.

One of genres I like is SciFi, and I too noticed years ago some good male writers now jumping in with lead female characters. Boring pc stuff usually. There are some very good libertarian sci-fi writers too that are wonderfully free-thinking and non-pc.

These days, even the moden James Bond is a pro-femist drag-queen mangina. I used to love watching old Bond Sean Connery slapping the bad-girl b*tch around.

Ours is a graduated resistance, based upon the ability of the brother to resist.

Ideally, all conscious men would leave for someplace where true equality prevails and these special privileges of having a snatch do not exist.

Those that don’t want to live in a third world shithole (Mexico), or polluted communist sewer (China) like myself, would do well not to have kids or marry.

Those who must have kids (there are some) would do well never to marry.

Staying in US/UK/Canada means you pay some taxes to fund women indirectly, but otherwise are left alone.

Having kids means you will have to pay taxes, and pay child support.

The men who lose most are those men who buy into the “honor” idea and try to “do the right thing” and marry princess. They get stuck with lifetime alimony, in addition to the child support and taxes, and many of them end up living in their cars.

Whatever the system tells you to do, you are best off doing the opposite. The system rewards its outlaws, and punishes honourable men. Just ask Welmer to get a clue, if you don’t believe me.

“One might ask why, given the fact that Sweden may well be under the most feminist regime on the planet, a lefty author would go to such great lengths to depict the place as a hotbed of rape and misogyny.”

The phenomenon where societies exaggerate danger of a particular type seems to occur much more in societies where the danger is lowest. The danger is lowest because that society takes the danger very seriously and has made efforts to lower it. Paradoxically, the increased concern for that danger which precipitated the decline to begin with prevents people from seeing just how safe things have been made.

For example, in the west, children on average have very safe lives. There’s little danger in being kidnapped and murdered or injuring oneself in a playground, but what do we see? We see school playgrounds being torn up and made even safer. We see kids being driven to and from school so that they’re not raped and murdered on the way.

We also see nonsense such as rape culture.

Is it not the case that most readers, particularily of Fiction are women? – yet most bestsellers are written by men – you can easily check this by going to Amazon’s best-seller lists and counting the number of male authors, in the top ten, twenty or hundred – it is usually about eight or nine in the top ten but later on with more books the percentage of women increases. One might conclude therefore that men are giving women what they want to read and as usual are doing it better than women. Was this not also the case with Abba?

All points well yet regrettably received regardless of the glooming tone and starkness. The latter end’s outcome a very likely possibility given the collective contemporary female’s over-reaching obvious main contribution to society – the endless unaccountable carp as an art form.

Yet, the good news is that now men of varying ages around the globe are beginning to communicate with one another toward comparing notes. It’s no co-incidence that it’s nearly the same almost everywhere in the caucasian world.
I intend to work at informing the open minds of our culture of how the other half of the proletariat population have governed themselves over the years and how ‘they’ too have greatly effected the outcome of humanity’s long condition. And this to be accomplished through using feminism as the vehicle. Feminists did demand full ‘equality’ with men, with the female prole chiming in with raised fist, and we are going to give it to them through facts.

As for the movie review. Seen from an extention to the regular mainstream gender ‘awareness’ of the day this was another example of good writing.

It is simply a study in itself to watch how the fantasy genre of motion pictures (TV included) can effect the collective psyches of audiences local and nation-wide. 100 pound gurrrlls exhibiting rare intellectual and physical prowesses with a taste for pussy manages to annihilate groups of men. I guess if the culture is already mired in female led and themed delusion then nothing appearing in a fantasy movie would seem impossible. What else is the hero-ine going to do for excitement – cook dinner or sew her own clothes or mimic actions of the men in her life? (Snaps fingers, “You are now going to wake from your deep sleep”).

As for the author(s) and movie.
Where I live is recognized as having long, dark. cold winters. That gives the inhabitants opportunity to delve in some creative or otherwise venture. Going outdoors can be inhospitable at times so many stay indoors and work on something.
Sweden happens to be in the 60th latitudinal parallel region of the globe. It appears as if the longer, colder, darker winters may contribute an extra degree of imagination to more of the darker artists of that region.

Aside from humanity’s love of stories and story-telling we’re free to turn the page, hoping that the next one will be better. But there’s always that curious element of fantasy believers capable of rendering havoc upon their own thought processing and extending its confusion toward others. To greater or lesser degrees this is feminism.
However, in the realm of the female vengeance SCUM theme (meme) its revivers can can quite easily lead or dupe themselves into their ridiculous favourite fantasy of female emancipation from those ghastly yet all providing male persons by simply watching “The Chick Sporting the Predictably Trendy Henna Tattoo.”
Mass psychosis or government initiated and approved escapism coming to a theatre near you. (Think I’ll sneak in the back door for free to see this one if the interest were ever found).

“Sweden has a larger immigrant, including Muslim, population than any other country in northern Europe.”

And the reason the Swedish government encourages this is…

“I think the feminists gain a lot of ground by appealing to these cultural artifacts”

Some ground true though less and less people have any sense of culture and with the processed food high-fat diet many young women do look like artifacts. Anyways, consider the Medusa face. Feminists resurrected it, made it a logo, and did their usual creative twisting of the original story to depict Medusa as a suffering victim of misogyny or something. blah blah bah. I thought the feminist Medusa face was simply recognition of how ugly the typical feminist is and the multitude of snakes symbolized women’s many forked tongues that speak in lies within lies.

You know it’s just perfect that I watched Aliens last night.

Neither Aliens nor the original Alien would have been the movies they were without Sigourney Weaver as the heroine Ellen Ripley. I’d appreciate your comments on these movies because in some ways they were obviously the start of the bad-ass-female-saves-the-day genre, but in other ways not really.

For example, in Alien (1979, back when Sigourney was 29), Ripley is always running-running-running, and her key moment of triumph is when she saves her own skin by sneaking into a space suit and blasting the alien out of the shuttle/lifeboat’s airlock. Sneaky desperate self-preservation in this case seems a far cry from legitimate bad-assery.

And then in Aliens (1986, when she was 36), even when her reason to keep living (her daughter, which she had had as a single mother and abandoned to go on out the Nostromo in the first place) have been taken away, she still refuses to go back and confront the aliens until she learns that FAMILIES are at risk back on planet LV-426. Evenb once she’s there it’s only with her maternal instincts for little Newt, and weapons training/enabling from the very male Corporal Hicks that she’s able to jump into risk and save somebody (none of the men, mind you, but the girl Newt).

So… hm. I’d appreciate your takes on the films as well, please.

The Jujitsu/Karate enabled, computer genius, whip-smart chick fictional character never really caught on, but Hollywood insists on promoting the superior “empowered female”

That type of women is very popular amongst young men in their teenage or 20′s who are well edowed with technical superiority but unfortunately social awkwardness aka nerds. I should know. *wink*

In my earlier years I once had a big crush on a woman just like that, minus the Jujitsu. She had a rare combination of good looks, straight A’s in engineering college, and good social skills. She was way out of my league. She was smart, real smart, however despite her formidable credentials she was first and foremost a woman. Like every other woman she desired (security and safety) above (opportunity and risk). She got some boring grunt job as a software engineer. A man of equal smarts would of lived a much more exciting life of high adventure maybe becoming a petroleum engineer drilling for oil in Alaska at sub zero temperatures or getting hazard bonus pay drilling in Iraq doing overtime hours or whatever.

Last I heard she became a teacher. A man of equal intelligence to her would probably be making triple what she’s making now, because frankly men are more ambitious. The Hollywood ambitious driven female is pure fantasy. I have never met such a woman IRL. Remember this gentlemen, no matter how smart a female is even if she’s a member of mensa, she is woman, she is a prostitute who would rather sell her pussy to any man who can afford it rather than work long hours, not call in “sick” (notice the quotation marks), risk her money to climb to the top on her own. BTW there’s nothing wrong with this. I mean this is the way God made women, less ambitious. What is wrong is for society to lie to men and try to make us feel guilty.

@Renee,

No MRAs (or anyone else) can be absolutely sure about rape statistics and I don’t know any MRAs who claims to be ‘so sure’ about the minority perps to any specific number. However, feminists do claim to be absolutely sure with claims that only 2.5% of rape claims are false and that 25% of women will be raped on campus and for every reported rape there are 10X not reported. Those typical feminist math numbers have been debunked many times. Feminists seem to be making big headway with their 2.5% acknowledgement since twenty years ago they insisted in an angry stern voice that women ‘never lie about rape’. Sure and women never ever lie about fake orgasms, cheating on men, and how they will never back stab in divorce court any man they might marry, etc.

Back to minority stats: there does seem to be a noticeable trend — using subjective personal observations and non-PC common sense — that as a percentage some minorities including migrants (legal or not) have been busy raping to a higher percentage than their demographic group should warrant all things being equal. I have not personally come across a specific qualified study on minorities and rape.

Go post your question at the False Rape Society site. You might be better able there to get your question answered in an appropriate manner.

Yea, Larsson wrote a book about Swedes raping ethnics;

Must have switched the orders of those two words when drunk; if he does not actually did it on purpose which would make him an rape apolog?st7enabler/encourager by twisting the facts.

@Craig

Few years back, there was this imam in denmark or sweden who gave a preaching (maybe even a fatwa) that raping non muslim girls is ok, not a crime, and a good deed in the name of the book.

I am not sure if he was deported, but me writing this comment borders the crime of hate inc?tement against a group of people.

@ universe/renee

The above should give you something to think about.

Also, the rape statistics that are given about Oslo, Stockholm, Malmo etc usually are about assault/assault gang rapes, where it is a bit harder to fake the bloodied nose or totally destroyed vagina.

That is why the feminazis are railing against date rape, he did not call rape, the condom slipped rape, etc. One, it cannot be proven right or wrong, two, it does dilute the real statistics.

“You guys (and others around the man-o-sphere) are so sure about the rape statistics concerning minority perpetrators. Yet you say that the majority of rape accusations are false. If that’s the case, how can anyone be sure about these statistics unless in everyone of those instances, they were either caught red-handed or the evidence was that obvious.”

I assume that by “you guys” you are referring to my comment. -Sigh.- A couple points:

I have never addressed the issue of false rape allegations (and their prevalence) before, and have never broached the issue of the propensity of minorities to rape before. I am not part of some collective/hive mind, thank you very much. You argue like some Pharisee in the Gospel; the construction of your accusation is misplaced and shoddy. Try not to set up false dichotomies…

I wasn’t talking about “minorities”. I was talking about the fact that, contrary to what the book portrays, NON-christian foreigners – NOT Christian ethnic natives – are responsible for the vast majority of rapes in Sweden (and Scandanavia in general). These non-christians are muslims (I will leave to you to infer whether they are more inclined to rape in general, or merely more inclined to rape women from other cultures that they consider to be degenerate/inferior, etc. – be they western blonde christian swedish maidens or swarthy christian/animist women in south sudan). To paraphrase what has been stated by others many times: diversity+proximity=conflict.

I’ll go one step further down the road to address your concerns for the sake of completeness. OK, let’s say that half of the reported rapes in Oslo in the last year are FALSE. Do you know what that means? It means that 100% of the remainder are STILL commited by muslim immigrants! See, that’s the beauty of percentages…

Dear E:

Great anecdote and article.

BTW there’s nothing wrong with this. I mean this is the way God made women, less ambitious.

Another way to say it (for those of us who are godless) is that men evolved to solve complex problems, and women evolved to crank out babies and take care of them.

I don’t want to generalise. I’m sure there are women who can best me at go, just like I’m sure there are men who qualify as championship homemakers. We’re a versatile and adaptable species. That aside, we do have strengths in different places.

The more one really appreciates such wide differences, the less animosity he has toward women — even kooky feminist ones who waste time slut walking. The vast majority are being led around by their noses and haven’t a clue about the long term consequences. They can’t know. It’s beyond their ken.

I think it was Aharon who pointed out that fascist and totalitarian states throughout history derived much of their popular support from women. I remember those old newsreel clips of crowds of teenage girls screaming as Hitler drove past. The only thing it compares to is how they act for Justin Beiber today. Women are creatures of the present.

@ Boxer,

“Female heroes are a staple of old school mythology. Atalanta, Athena, Boadicea, Judit. I don’t claim to know what it means (oughta read Jung or Joseph Campbell and figure it out) but I think the feminists gain a lot of ground by appealing to these cultural artifacts, in a twisted and perverted way.”

In the Classical sense, goddesses do not count as Heroes. The hero was always a man (sometimes part divine) with the character of a man and mortal. He also almost always had a tragic flaw. This what made his struggles and achievements so appealing, the average man could identify with this semi-divine figure.

Boadicea doesn’t count since she was a historical figure, but for every goddess there was a far greater number of vile women, and even the goddess weren’t that great. The Trojan War was preceded in myth by the Judgment of Paris in which the three goddess fight over the golden apple “To the Fairest” placed by another female God, Strife.

A few years back, the books were incredibly popular. It seemed almost every woman I know was reading one of the trilogy. Maybe it’s fantasy thing for them, I don’t know. It appealed to non-hardcore feminists as well, so I don’t know what they get out of it.

But when I watched the Swedish movie, I was appalled. It is a vile piece of propaganda. As you say, astounding it is written by a man. Must be just about the mangina of the century in terms of the spread of his views. According to wikipedia : By May 2010, 27 million copies have been sold worldwide

It is interesting that the female lead is so masculine. There is absolutely nothing feminine about her at all. The sex scene is just ridiculous. The guy just lies there like a stunned fish. (He’s probably hoping she doesn’t eat her mates afterwards like a spider)

Feminists would probably say this is just a fantasy, nothing serious. But these memes like “all men are bastards” keep getting repeated, over and over. We notice it, but most people don’t realize there is a constant background hum of memes like this.

Yup, that was me.
Some German women played a ruthless game of power control at home. They informed the Nazi Police that their husbands were not loyal and/or dedicated to the party. The husbands were hauled in and interrogated by the police and given warnings before being sent home. Those same WW2 era German women who turned in their Jewish neighbors to the Nazis were also the first in line to bid on their ex-neighbor’s property auctioned off by the Nazis a few days later. After WW2, German women suddenly pretended that it was their men who supported the Nazis and they had no choice being oppressed helpless women sensitive to the suffering of others….

I am beginning to suspect that Western Civilization’s racist and imperialistic foreign colonization, and the over-chivalrous pedestaling of its own women along with their political liberation are the biggest moral mistakes made by the West.

“Was this not also the case with Abba?”

As someone who studies song craft I can say that Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus were genuises. The two chicks were better than average vocalists, especially Anni-Frid (the brunette) who dominates the tracking, (much like Mama Cass did with the Mama’s and the Papas). Both men were hard, really hard core feminists.

“The Hollywood ambitious driven female is pure fantasy.”

That’s the propaganda; to be relentless in your repetition of the message with the expectation that women will slowly absorb and adapt from succumbing to patriarchal constructs. Young girls, “Tweens” start out with all the hopes and ambitions of any boy. Then puberty hits, sexual power over boys is realized and that once precious “you go grrl, break down those gender barriers!” agenda shifts dramatically.

For feminists to ultimately win, eradicating males should not be the goal, but rather to chemically vanquish female sexual interest in males. Psychologically brainwashing girls to view boys with distrust and contempt, only goes so far. Nature always wins.

The marriage strike is going strong. Modern liberalism is very self-destructive.

Moderate to radical feminists, who usually have two to zero kids, will breed themselves out. Thats a great trend. Young couples are also choosing not to move to California because of the high cost of living, state debt, crime, high populations, made traffic, pollution, etc. Hispanics (often read illegal aliens) who have larger families are also moving away from the LA area.

Each man to his own path MGTOW. I like to see men Ghosting and going beyond the marriage strike itself with men turning their backs on supporting women, society, and government. Men have built up and made huge sacrifices for all three groups. What have those three done for us and to us the past forty years? Nothing good.

I’m just back from the pub where by coincidence my two drinking companions had just returned from the cinema having seen this film and so I thought that it might be interesting as to what they said:

One, was complaining that he was sure he had seen the same film but with different actors a couple of years ago, and looking at IMDB he seems to be right. This is the second time this has been filmed recently so clearly this story appeals – but to whom and why?

He said the girl was pretty convincing and Craig was wimpy. There were a lot of British actors so he thought it a British film set in Sweden but backed with American money. He told me the ending: *spolier alert*. The girl finds the man who had raped her and tatooes ‘I am a rapist pig’ on his body. I do not on this thread want to get into a long harangue about rape and its comparative triviality but it seems to me that such an over-reaction might fully justify a response from him in the future. Upping the ante – ‘In fair Verona where we set our scene two houses of Noble birth etc’.

Actually I am fairly pleased, as the second guy who I have not seen in a while, was telling me how the last time we met I had been escaping a woman where I had had my hand (consentially) up her thigh. My street cred was defintely up!

Benny and Bjorn were hard core feminists?? Say it ain’t so! As someone who was a huge ABBA fan growing up (yes because of my mother but I won’t delve into that analysis right now), as I got older and learned more about them it seemed that the two guys were the geniuses and used the women’s voices to their full potential. When the women didn’t feel like playing anymore they moved on to other projects, with less success than ABBA but certainly more successful than the women, who faded into obscurity. Maybe they talked some feminist trash, I don’t know, but they knew where the money was. And hopefully by now it is clear where the credit for the group’s success belongs… I don’t think anyone reasonable credits the women for the success beyond their voices at this point. And I like to think Benny and Bjorn orchestrated that. But that’s just what I like to think.

On to literature… I was highly amused to learn the swedish title of this book especially after (of course) seeing it on my mother’s coffee table (yes I have mentioned her twice and yes she is part of the reason I’m here). To counter, I would like to include a quote from War and Peace, which I have just started reading. I am becoming a huge fan of Russian literature, I read some Solzhenitsyn earlier this year as well and it’s really good.

“Never, never marry, my dear fellow; that’s my advice to you; don’t marry till you have faced the fact that you have done all you’re capable of doing , and till you cease to love the woman you have chosen, till you see her plainly, or else you will make a cruel mistake that can never be set right. Marry when you’re old and good for nothing… Or else everything good and lofty in you will be done for. It will all be frittered away over trifles. Yes, yes, yes! Don’t look at me with such surprise. If you expect anything of yourself in the future you will feel at every step that for you all is over… all is closed up except the drawing-room, where you will stand on the same level with the court lackey and the idiot… And why!”

This was published in, what, 1869? This guy was on to something.

ahamkara,

Thanks for the motivation. I currently have more than 100 books on my reading list. Therefore, I placed War and Peace, and Dr. Zhivago by association in my Netflix que. I know it’s not the same as the book. There are only so many books one can read in one life. That’s another good reason men should avoid marriage. Being married takes a man away from long hours of leisurely time he could have spent reading. A book will never back talk and nag a man, it won’t cheat and give a man STDs, and a book won’t ever sue a man and take away his home that he can relax in and read more books.

ahamkara,

Thanks for the War and Peace quote. Tolstoy indeed had a grasp on women. In fact, he even boasted that he had discovered the secret if women:

“When I have one foot in the grave, I will tell the whole truth about women. I shall tell it, jump into my coffin, pull the lid over me and say, ‘Do what you like now’.” — Leo Tolstoy

The Men’s Tribune also has a short piece (3min) from Tolstoy called Need It Be So? where he complains about the madness of society serving the needs of women to the extent it does.

The film also contains some very graphic sexual violence, as well as numerous scenes which feature extremely intense emotional elements. I think part of the reason it did poorly is simply because the it is for a fairly limited audience by its nature.

I noticed that the warrior woman fad in American pop culture declined after September 11, 2001, when the chicks decided that they should let the men do the fighting for them after all.

An honest Ayn Rand would have said, “Man’s mind is woman’s basic tool of survival,” because in the harsh world that we can just barely keep at bay with civilization, women lack the goods to make it on their own.

As an Alien aficionado I must put down my analysis. The Alien represents the darker aspects of male sexuality in the feminist age. His whole appearance and development is as a violent phallus. For reasons of brevity I will consider only the original trilogy. From my own perspective I could care less about Ripley and find the Alien badass.

Alien- the most introspective. E. Michael Jones in his “Monsters from the Id” postulates that Alien is almost a reaction to the porno-chic of the 70′s which opened with the acceptance of “Deep Throat” (considering that the Alien gestates through oral rape) and the legalization of abortion (the demise of the Alien is reminiscent of an abortion.) The idea is that sex divorced from family and procreation becomes monstrous.

http://www.amazon.com/Monsters-Id-Rise-Horror-Fiction/dp/1890626066

H.R. Giger in his retrospective said that while Aliens is a straight out feminist sci-fi flick (more on this with Aliens and James Cameron), but that Alien is a Freudian nightmare. He also mentions that Dan O’Bannon, the original writer, had an abusive mother (this does seem to tie in with Lambert’s grisly death.)

The Alien is some sort of creature representing sex without love and the war machine in it’s biomechanic nature. Kind of a synthesis of Cartesian philosophy and Freudian sexuality. It is interesting that Ripley is portrayed as a young professional woman who bosses men around and has a cat. Was Alien a prediction that feminism would lead to a world of hard women who have to run from male sexuality with their cats, ending in the feminist sacrifice of abortion? Perhaps, good art can be measured on multiple levels.

Aliens- crap, typical Cameron Mangina/White-Knight parable. In Aliens Cameron takes the Alien creature and sets it up as a counter fecundity against human breeding. The Aliens have a queen and operate as insects in opposition to Ripley’s motherly love (this same paradigm can be seen in Cameron’s Terminator and even Avatar.)

However the hive reproduction mode of the Alien is not what the original story postulated. In a famous deleted scene the Alien captured humans to cocoon and turn into eggs (scene here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dS5MtzrW1vU) note too that in the beginning Ripley ditches the single lady cat. Cameron does this (as well as establishes in a deleted scene that Ripley was a mother, actually a bit unbelievable) to make Ripley into one of his motherly heroines (late seen again in Terminator 2.)

Truth is, though the most popular, Aliens is the one off in the large mythos.

Alien 3- the most maligned but actually an analogue of the first movie. The setting is in a hypermasculine world. The monkish prisoners are figures for the virtues of men and their physical power (double Y chromosomes produce more testosterone and are larger than average.) Into their world of reflection and repentance (another masculine virtue by and large missing in women) falls this Pandora-like figure with her box of ills (the Alien, the Queen, and her sexuality.) Leaving these men left to fight a desperate battle.

The resolution only comes about when she unites with the men and sheds her femininity completely to destroy the monster she brought and the one within her. And thus the story ends. The Alien species wiped out and the evil corporation denied their weapon.

It is unfortunate that Alien 3 was not that popular because we lack any real feed back from the director, but from what I understand David Fincher does imbue his work with a religious ethos and does have a good command of creating tense stories.

All in all the Alien saga is strangely similar to the Ancient Greek myth of the Minotaur (and slightly to Beowulf’s Grendel.) I am not attributing an direct inspiration here, as there is probably none. But the Minotaur was a monstrous creature that inhabited a labyrinth (much like the Alien in the Nostromo,) and was the result of unnatural copulation (Oral rape in Alien and Queen Pasiphaë’s lust of the Cretean bull.) Both creatures represent some sort monster of the subconscious.

I cannot really say anymore, other than the Alien movies probably would have been popular even without the female lead (as a character I never found Ripley that compelling until the last movie.)

Ridley Scott’s new prequel to Alien, Prometheus, will probably show that the Alien is not a natural animal (as Cameron’s Aliens did) but a bio weapon as indicated in the first movie with the derelict.

Did anyone watch the recent Doctor Who Christmas special? it was the first time i had real problems getting to the end. so much man bashing it though me out of the story badly atleast twice.

the first time was when the mother shows up in the forest and the 3 people arrive and tell her to evacuate. while it was funny that the scanner had problems scanning past organic materials, the comedy degraded when the mother started to cry. suddenly the male leader can’t control his people, but you got the other male solider suddenly becoming a massive sissy with “mother issues” that “wont effect him” but does, and the female solider puts her weapon and the ground and convinces the others to do the same cos the mother “cant be a threat can she”. the mother actually had a gun and had manipulated them all with her crying, the female solider became a submissive but loyal member of team woman at that point.

the other part was when the Doctor was saving the day, but the plants didn’t want the Doctor. he wasn’t strong enough, the male child while abit closer wasn’t strong enough either, the female child nearly was, but the mother was the strongest of them all. her strength was because she was a woman and was even better then the Doctor (the hero of the universe).

i was just dumbstruck by all of that. a woman who was manipulative, unable to drive even a modern car of her time without hitting things is suddenly superior to the man who has over 900 years of experience, just because she is a mother.

reading your review i am sure glad i didnt go with the idea that the movie would be good. i suspect i would have gotten ten minutes in and be pulling out the dvd to snap it in half.

That is huge. If small businesses are forced to provide maternity coverage and leave it will cause them to think twice before hiring women.

I would assume that they’ll just force the insurers to cover the men as well like they do in Europe. In the EU they went as far as banning all gender based calculation in private insurance – this is already the case in most public “plans” because men and women pay the same premium but women receive more in benefits due to them living longer and incurring more healthcare expense, also in some EU countries they can retire earlier. This is now extended to private insurance which means the less expensive insurance policies like death and car insurance will be a bit cheaper for men but the expensive ones like pension and healthcare will cost more. I think it’ll probably come out at about 4% more for men depending on which insurances he has. This evens out in married couples of course, making it a tax on single men.

Are abortions covered as well?

@Art

- for decades women in the UK enjoyed lower insurance premiums for driving, because most expensive accidents involved young men drivers. The EU put a stop to this on the grounds of “sexism”. Oh, the kvetching from women who now have to cough up more money!

-for decades women in the UK got to retire at 60, whereas men had to carry on to 65. Partly due to EU “anti-sexist” legislation and also due to the money running out, both men and women will now get their gov’t pension at the same age*. Oh the gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands by women who’re losing out! It got so bad the UK gov’t brought in some kind of tapered relief so that 50 odd year old women won’t have to soldier on until they’re 65 (unlike men of course).

I’m generally against the EU, with it being an undemocratic federal superstate in the making – run by unaccountable apparatchiks, for the vested interests of corporate cronies & banksters – but sometimes, just sometimes it’s good for some things. Heh.

(* I just turned 41 and mine won’t come due until 67 – coincidentally the same age as my life expectancy.)

P.S. Speaking of 50 odd year old women, you can get your ration of schadenfreude for the week from this whiny article by Liz Jones in the Daily Heil** where she bemoans the lot of lonely, ageing women and rails against the feminists she feels cheated them: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2079591/Madonna-Sarah-Ferguson-Women-peak-52-Liz-Jones-thinks-.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

On December 29th, I posted this reply to Tom:

“Tom, you support as justified (in the film) a female character taking out her revenge on a male character who raped her by later beating him up and then tattooing his forehead? How about a male character taking out his revenge on female character who had him convicted and imprisoned many years with a false rape allegation by later beating up the female character and tattooing her forehead? Would you support that as justified?

Feminists (and their misandry) are now mainstream. It is the MRAs who are the rebellious and non-conformist ones”.

I find the whole thing where she rides Blomkvist laughable. A lot of these empowered “yugo grrrls” think they have the stuff to be a penis rider, and enough manginas validate (falsely) her sexual prowess in that position.

The womyn-on-top position, is boring, it is barely erotic and only serves as a resting position for the man. Truthfully unless you are talking about a really slim rocking stripper/dancer type most healthy men will not get off.

I even had one grrrl who was so neurotic that she tried pounding her pelvis against mine. Needless to say I immediately stopped her and switched positions.

@Jean
I watched the Swedish version with my buddy last night and after reading the reviews here I think some of you are seeing what you want to see and to the detriment of our own ends.

I’ve watched all 3 Swedish versions and I think that you and the others (most of whom have not see the films or read the books) are going to have to see the entire trilogy to see how it all fits together.
The man she burned in the Dragon Tattoo (the 1st part) is her father who was a Soviet defector who worked for the KGB. He was t much of a depraved criminal even for them so they were going to kill him until he managed to get into Sweden where he was protected by this shady criminal group with government ties. After she had burned her father (she didn’t know it was her father at the time and he survived) they had to cover this incident since he (Zara) was one of them so they got Lizbeth declared insane and arranged that she be sent to a asylum where the psychiatrist was also one of them. When she was released at a certain age they got a lawyer to be her guardian (he was also part of the group) ad another degenerate.
You asked why she wouldn’t be believed. Well, she was locked up in a mental institution since 12 and she was weird looking so who would be believed? Her or respectable officials.
She only met the reporter by chance when he was hired by Vander to find his niece who he believed was still alive somewhere. Lizbeth had transferred a lot of Vander money(from the bad Vaders not the uncle) to herself in the Caymen Is. at the end of the 1 st part so she was now very rich for part 2 (The Girl Who Played With Fire) which I guess was what helped her evade them. The reporter only found out about the rape tape and other things when he managed to track her to her hideout in a luxury building and looked around while she was out.
The 3 connected stories are not really feminist and I guess the so called “victim” could have been a male but I think that we all know that in films and novels that females (and children) just make more sypathetic victims than men but this really has nothing to do with feminism and has existed for a very long time. Bond could be poisoned or be getting tortured and crippled by Le Chiffre who is playing tennis with Bond’s balls (in the book he used a tennis racket) but I’m sure that Vesper got more sympathy when she drowns in Venice.
I can remember dialogue very well and I didn’t really see much in this trilogy about feminism but there was a reference to socialism when the two reprters was talking about Zara and how he got asylum under the pre socialist government in ’76. I guess the implication was that the pre socialist gov’t was fascist.
And btw, the females whether it was Lizbeth or her girlfriend Wu were not kicking any male arse in this film a la Laura Croft and were in fact getting the arse kicking themselves even though they both were trained fighters.The only time Lizbeth wins is when she catches a man offguard and she has a weapon like a stungun etc

I feel the same about 1913: Progressive Wilson became President and what followed the US Federal Reserve Act and Federal Income Tax Bills being passed and signed into law. Then the US entered WW1 in 1917 which millions of men dies in.

“In the election of 1921 more women than men had the right to vote because women got the right just by turning 18 years old wile men had to undergo military service for the right to vote”.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_suffrage

No wonder the temporary ‘roaring 1920s’ abusing the laws of economics and twisting monetary policy occurred, and what followed was the 1929 Crash and another Progressive Roosevelt coming into power in the 1930s and outlawing physical gold bullion ownership. How interesting; another Progressive was in the White House when the US entered WW2. More American men being slaughtered in combat while the women were safely back home baking cookies for the kids and having sex with the milkman.

Avenger, I have read the books and watched the 3 Swedish movies and want to point out one thing I feel you missed ( I assume most people here will not care about spoilers about this particular topic)

Lisbeth’s father was a criminal and secretly defected from Russia to Sweden, he was under protection by the swedish authorities in exchange for his inside information. Her mother was an eastern European whore who was regularly beaten by her father, but when Lisbeth was 12 he beat her mother very badly (she became a vegetable). Upon witnessing this final beating, lisbeth approached her father in his car, threw petrol upon him and set him alight.

Lisbeth was sibsequently sent to a mental hospital and declaawards tally unfit and a ward of the state as the government didn’t want anyone to know about her prized Russian defector father.

One interesting topic outside the scope of this website I guess is the power that the Swedish state has over persons declared mentally unfit, this is why her 2nd guardian, the evil rapist one, had so much power over Lisbeth as he controlled every cent that was to be handed to her to live on.

@Aharon – yes! Similar to the way the suffragettes got the vote in UK. Contrary to BS fem-propaganda it wasn’t thro’ hunger strikes. Nope.

Emmeline + Christabel Pankhurst’s big suffragette organization collaborated with the ruling UK elite to push WWI’s disgusting white feather campaign of shame, and later conscription for MEN. Nearly one million British men died, (not to mention the maimed + the mad) the majority of whom did NOT have the vote! (there was a property requirement). Post-war, the suffragettes were rewarded for their loyalty to the assholes in charge.

Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of the War dead, died due in part to the “patriotic work” i.e. manipulative power-play – of the suffragettes. Men were slaughtered and maimed, so women could get the vote.

@Paul-you’ve just repeated some what I said and apparently haven’t seen the 3 films either. I mean the originals and not the Hollywood version with Craig which I haven’t seen. And where did you get this idea that her mother was from the East? And the part about being a whore was just something her father said to her after she found him and he was a degenerate who had her shot in the head and buried.

“I guess is the power that the Swedish state has over persons declared mentally unfit, this is why her 2nd guardian, the evil rapist one, had so much power over ”

I can see that you really know next t nothing about these things like most of the ignorant bitter little boys on here because these same laws are in effect in the US and UK where a judge can cmmit a person just based on a hearing where a psychiatrist testifies that you’re a danger to yourself or others.So unless you have money, a lawyer and some doctor to refute this you may find yourself in an asylum for a few months and once you’re there the psychiatrist may say that you’re still ill and hold you after that period. Even a regular doctor can get the cops to bring you to a hospital if he believes you’re incompetent and need immediate treatment(like if your BP is extremely high)and you’ll be treated without your consent. Doctors don’t like having to play cop and would try to coax you to get treatment or give you some drugs at the office but are also afraid that they may be liable if you leave and run people over in your car. Even a priest is bound to go to the cops if he heard something in confession about a future crime (not something you did in the past)
Most people like yourself have a distorted view of what the law really is and you do not have what you believe are your rights in all cases.

@Joe “Men were slaughtered and maimed, so women could get the vote.”

Incidentally – NAWALT – Slyvia Pankhurst was a resolutely anti-war / pro-union pacifist, which at the time = about as pro-men as a woman could get.

Guess which branch of the Pankhurst family reaped the rewards? Clue: it wasn’t the one with principles.

- Lady Hamilton (mistress of Nelson, encouraged killing above and beyond the needs of war)
- Maggie bloody Thatcher.

Gina Carano is an actual MMA fighter and pretty good. I don’t think she can beat up most men but it’s a lot more believable than say Angelina Jolie jumping down an elevator shaft in Salt or Zoe Saldana climbing walls in Colombiana.

I get your point that female bad asses are feminist fantasy and I agree for the most part. Still, Gina is pretty tough–for a girl.

“Just off the top of my head”.

Be careful there Joe. Most feminazis would love to chop off your head — both of them.

One, was complaining that he was sure he had seen the same film but with different actors a couple of years

It was the Swedish version. But there are 2 more films in the trilogy in Swedish. I have no idea why they made the Craig version and will have to see if they like combined things in it.

“There were a lot of British actors so he thought it a British film set in Sweden’

Hard to tell these days when they have to use Hugh Laurie to play a US doctor; or in Boardwalk Empire use Englishmen to play Al Capone and that US soldier who got his face blown off;or Kate Winslet who I thought was American since she plays so many roles as one; not to mention Gary Oldman and about 100 others.

I guess they can’t find Americans anymore who can do American accents lol

@Joe

Most WWI officers were drawn form the upper classes. The casualty rates from elite schools such as Eton or La Sorbornne were actually higher than those from working class trade schools. WWI was probably the only war where social elites were statistically more likely to get killed than men from the working classes.

“She looks, to put it bluntly, like the kind of dyke junkie one might have found in some basement punk club on the West Coast circa 1997. “

Did you mean “East Coast?” I’ve never run into a club in a basement in Los Angeles. Most are ground level and above.

Great article. I won’t see the movie, and I’ll tell friends the movie “sucks” based on reviews I’ve read.

@Rocco:

@namae:

From reading the post you linked and the goings on at the good puppy project it seems the femi-nazi’s are purging the male feminist, they must be preparing for changes no fair minded or even self hating pussy begging man could handle.”
========

Feminists always turn against their men sooner or later. Doesn’t matter if its their husbands or their brothers or their male feminist-in-arms (i.e. mangina traitors).

The moment a male feminist fails to live up to his feminazi goddess(es)’ expectations, he has outlived his usefulness and will be immediately tossed aside like the piece of trash they have always seen him as.

If it wasn’t for the damage these…..vile, LOATHSOME, self-hating men have wrecked upon us all, I would actually feel sorry for them, but I don’t.

Am I too late to join in the Republican circle jerk? “Oh noes! Da wimmenz and gaiz iz takin ova!” ugh. Would you like to whine some more about how white males have become the most ‘opressed’ group in the country? I would laugh at you all, but I’m too depressed knowing that there are people out there who actually think like this. How insecure can you douchebags be? Especially the author of this bullshit ‘review’…..

Stieg was a Joke February 21, 2012 at 07:13

Just read that Stieg Larsson died of a heart attack after climbing seven flights of stairs. This perfectly illustrates the difference between the feminist literary fantasy world that he inhabited and reality.

In his fantasy world, he is a hot-shot investigative journalist who fights against the evil empire of misogynist Neo-Nazis whilst slowly gaining the friendship and love of his dream lesbian feminist girl (or should that be grrrl?) Together, they battle bravely and cunningly against male injustice toward women and smite their enemies with righteous and terrible vengeance!

However…in reality it was not crazed ultranationalists armed with silenced pistols who killed him; it was a broken elevator.
