What Does Feminism Look Like on YouTube?

by W.F. Price on December 11, 2012

If you search for “feminism” on YouTube, the results are quite encouraging. All but a couple of the videos are clearly hostile to the ideology. Even more encouraging is the fact that every year, fewer and fewer young people watch TV. Feminism appears strong on TV shows and in major newspapers, but these forms of media have come to be associated with senior citizens and the aging, white progressive demographic that dominates our childless cities.

Young people don’t flick on the TV for their entertainment any longer, instead choosing to spend time online, where there is far less progressive control and influence. And when you look online, it’s pretty clear that people don’t like feminism. This is why those who are looking to appeal to young people are avoiding the f-word like the plague.

Young people hate feminism, and I can only see this revulsion growing stronger as it begins to cough out its death rattle.

I don’t know for sure what feminists could do to improve their image, but perhaps I could offer a little advice. If they really want to get young people on board, I think Futrelle should start posting YouTube videos of himself talking about how he’s a sex-positive male feminist.

Yeah, that ought to do it.

I am not a young man. In my view, feminism is indeed strong and getting stronger every day.

The problem is we are all products of our cultures, something I well learned when I moved to rural Mexico.

In the US, feminism is so entrenched in the culture that women don’t think of hatred for men as feminism, just normal and of no consequence.

Median voter age is pushing 50. Politics always lag popular trends by quite a while, too. Usually a decade or more.

Median voter age is pushing 50. Politics always lag popular trends by quite a while, too. Usually a decade or more.

I’m going to have to disagree with you here Price.

On interesting tidbit about the youth vote is that while it has been getting more socialist in recent years, the drift towards to left mirrors the demographic changes within the youth vote.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That’s the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic — white women under 30 — slightly favored Romney.

Reagan got just 43 percent of young voters in 1980 — and that was when whites were 88 percent of the electorate. Only 58 percent of today’s under-30 vote is white and it’s shrinking daily.

AMERICA NEARS EL TIPPING POINTO

So while the young white vote got more Conservative since 1980, the change was entirely swamped by the altered racial component of that demographic.

This shows both good and bad news.

While whites (including a majority of young white women) are more right-leaning and presumably less feminist than a generation ago, the growth of the minorities, particularly hispanic women, is fuel for the single-mother, matriarchal underclass.

Hispanic women have illegitimacy rates exceeding 60% despite claims from their defenders that they are “family values Catholics.”

The explosive growth of this fatherless demographic is very bad news for the nation’s future.

Your first paragraph is quite interesting. Most YouTube vids are anti-feminazi, although TV strongly supports fembot politics.

TV is an organ of mass indoctrination and propaganda, whereas YT is the voice of the people.

The past forty plus years of political momentum will carry feminist influence in politics, society, and among the cultural institutions on for some time. Hillary might run and win the presidency, SCJ Ginsburg has not yet keeled over, and the most powerful person in the world Obama still has his school-boy view of society.

Young people might largely hate feminism, the the “educated” female demographic certainly does not. These women are conditioned and inculcated in college to extol the virtues of feminism.

They are convinced on one hand that it exists to achieve equality, and at the same time, feel entitled to receive social preferences due to past wrongs. If anything, these women absolutely love feminism!

Feminism lowers the social tone forever. It is a contaminating, a defiling and a degrading ideology to all.

Just about every person and institution it touches, it damages, it demeans and it poisons irredeemably. Because it over-emphasizes the material and the sensual, both of which are decidedly carnal.

Feminist gender-ism instigates all of the above decay and then so much more unseen and hidden necrosis to the social fabric, because at its heart is a falsely and mal-inductively constructed ideal: That is, that female sex, because it is to be held above all else really more important to it, is pledge-able, com-modifiable, exchangeable and trade-able for everything.

Feminized nations will always have their men sully and malign themselves and their own sex, by a trading off of their natural nobility and prestige for a tainted ideal. That is, a tainted ideal that reduces men, children and State to worthless pimps/products/mercenaries.

Yeah, this is what I’ve been suggesting all along — the “gender war” will evaporate when it all starts to boil down to ethnic politics. In the last election, the biggest gender gap was between Hispanic men and women. Probably because the Mexicanas are rejecting Catholic values with mucho gusto now that they’ve made it past the Rio Grande. Mexican women (in the US) are going to be the future of radical feminism — if it has a future.

The coming divide in the US will be ethnic, and it wouldn’t surprise me if we end up with a nation within a nation of Spanish speakers who vote en bloc. Blacks are going to be politically marginalized (like they are in ALL Latin American polities, such as Los Angeles) when the Hispanics start flexing their muscle. I really have no idea how exactly it will play out, but it could go in all sorts of weird directions. Hell, blacks may even rejoin the Republican Party, or maybe they’ll all start speaking Spanish and submit to their new Latino overlords (most of whom will be white Hispanics leading the peasant masses — just like in Mexico). Politics are going to be really weird in a decade’s time or soon thereafter. With all these new variables, we can’t make too many predictions, but one I’m fairly certain of is that feminists (the white Anglo ones, i.e. 95% of them) will be shoved firmly aside in favor of people with names like Carlos and Vicente. Or else they’ll marry them. Something like that, anyway. Suffice it to say that patronage won’t favor them so much when Los Hombres come rolling in.

The future of the US will be more like Texas than Alta California. Why? Because Tejanos have kids; Californios not so much.

Hey, great website. Greetings from Austria. We have the same problems with women here, but as far as I can tell America is still worse(no offense). Anyway I am 23 and since there are no nice girls anywhere around; (nice girl means submissive, cooks, cleans, cares for me, tries everything to make me happy, because I am her king). I am soon finishing University (hopefully before more gender courses are introduced) and well I had the usual dream, find a job, find a girl, get married. THEN I realized this is not the 50s, this is a world of nightmares for any man. I haven’t decided yet what I will do with my life, but I won’t be a slave to a system I didn’t create or approve. Maybe I try to change the world, maybe I will travel, or try to find God.
Anyway keep up the good work, the world needs people like you.
And to write at least one line related to the topic, I stopped watching television 3 years ago, too much feminist brainwash their.

Back when I was in college the Internet was in it’s infancy. I had a roommate who was proud to call himself a progressive Liberal. He declared that the Internet will break the power of the conservative establishment by giving everybody a voice. No longer can a small group of wealthy elites who control TV and movies be in charge of distributing 90% of everything society gets to see and thus indoctrinating society.

In all fairness at least my roommate was half right.

1. Female Supremacism is THE dominant ideology of the US. It’s more powerful than any religion or political ideology. Even if Feminism’s Left wing is exposed and shunned, women and their advocacy groups will simply pivot slightly to the Right, who will be more than happy to accomodate. Most strong “anti-feminist” conservatives are still female supremacist.

2. Feminists are going to have trouble turning latinos into feminists. But I agree latinos are going to become a Leftist voting blog, by and large. Feminists and latinos will simply agree to disagree, and focus on vilifying and fleecing white males.

I watch Stossel (John Stossel) on Fox every so often. He’s a large “L” libertarian (His book “No They Can’t” is a great read), and he has a live studio audience of about 100 that are a mix of males and females, almost all white all young students from some local university, perhaps Columbia, maybe NYU. There’s something very unique about these young people. I’m thinking they’re familiar with Ayn Rand’s work.

Now that the Anti-Establishment of the 1960′s IS the new Establishment, the social movement of their grandparents generation, and Conservatives remain transfixed on social issues and God – a whole new hip/cool counter-culture movement is burgeoning with youthful energy. The failure of “low tax, spend and keep borrowing” will have to be self-evident through more state and city defaults. A sea change is about to transpire. Watch out for Rand Paul in 2016.

Gosh, so that’s why women are abandoning the term feminism.

Western society is already feminised, they got what they wanted, they won. So the women begin to abandon their war machine and carry on as normal now. I was so myopic to have not seen that earlier.

Our task should be to dismantle their war machine so that they can never use is again if we ever manage to steer this society in a healthy direction again.

The problem is that Feminism, the ideology, survives even as it takes other names. I’ve run into plenty of feminist friendly spaces and ideologues on Youtube that, for instance, have far more views and sway than GirlWritesWhat.

If Whatsherface ever gets around to actually making her video game video critiques, you can bet they will have far more views than probably any single anti-feminist Youtuber.

The ideology is everywhere, to the extent that I’ve heard quite a few feminists say they don’t care about how their “brand” is looking, when uncritical acceptance of the ideology is everywhere.

Heck, we are only at the point where overtly hateful and violent feminists caught on video are starting to get any pushback. This celebration that the term (which really hasn’t been adapted by young women for the past 10 to 15 years at least) is looking more and more to be a liability seems to me to merely be fiddling while Rome burns.

Its my observation that latina are far less interested in the kind of bra-burning, career girl brand of feminism.

Rather they are taking the parasitical sponge approach for all its worth.

The white feminist who ends up as a childless spinster is far less dangerous as she eliminates herself from the gene pool and is more likely to support herself with her career.

The parasitical single mother brand of feminism as practiced by latina is the kind that truly destroys civilization. The effect of her behavior is felt long after she dies as her barbarian children wreak havoc on civil society.

I agree, but again, that is less a product of feminism and more a product of female nature. We have seen the same thing in the black community and among lower-class white women. For these women, feminism simply provided the social safety net and removal of restriction to let female nature run wild. And to be honest, traditionalism also deserves plenty of blame for insisting that women continue to be cared for no matter what.

If I may attempt to sum up what the commentators here appear to believe. They appear to believe that while certain perspectives of feminism have changed and continue to change, the damage has been done and damage will continue to be done because of the way that feminism has become so institutionalized and ingrained into so many of us. Whether or not people identify with the most obnoxious feminists being of little relevance.

@Paul Murray- Worth noting that Irish slaves outnumbered black slaves by nearly ten to one. Yet you do not hear, today, of ‘Irish Slums’, “Irish Gangbangers’ or ‘Irish gangster subculture’.

The problem is not one of race, Racism is itself the problem. The sort of racism that demands that ‘minorities’ be catered to and flushed with ‘aid’ instead of standing on their own feet. The sort of Racism that tries to apologize for unspecified sins against people that have been dead for a hundred years.

Apologist Racism and sexist feminism have the same root, and have resulted in the same problem: An entire, and HUGE, class of people that have become addicted to subsidies, addicted to victimhood, addicted to being worshipped and apologized to for crimes none of us have ever committed to.

Everywhere you go you see it. Native reservations losing their cultural heritage due to their dependence on subsidies. Inner-city blacks, Women, hispanics, trailer park whites.
Everywhere subsidies and public assistance become commonplace, soon the people learn to lose their self-reliance, their pride, their work ethic, and their honor.

It is simply par for the course. What happens when you tame a wild animal? it becomes utterly dependent upon you and loses all of it’s ability to survive without your care. The same thing happens with people.

Subsidies are so fucking STUPID!

Doesn’t seem to matter much. They’re still a protected class which gets preferential hiring treatment. No business or govt agency would be complete without a “proportional representation” of hispanics. They also have La Raza (The Race), which is getting to be a very influential grievance org.

Remember the vicious and greedy Conquistadors slaughtered millions of Mexicans for their gold. Oh and then the evil imperialist US govt stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and southern Texas from all the kind innocent Mexicans in the 19th century. Then there’s all the abuse of migrant workers. Now we have racist sherrifs in Arizona targeting them for arrest and deportation. We won’t allow them to come here illegally to work anymore. We round them up and treat them like animals

Lemme tell ya, Hispanics are a VERY oppressed people…according to hispanics and bleeding heart liberals. It’s payback time for the Gringo for stealing what was once Northern Mexico. Esa es nuestra tierra!

“The Catalyst” is at it again with yet another new study. A plausible explanation for the lack of growth in women’s representation on “boards” is that the 16.6% of which you speak is the self-emergent limit of the female population willing or able to serve as corporate executives. Artificial efforts to surpass nature’s “glass ceiling” are likely to end up badly, because it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.

elmer enjoys the payoff from writing a Spearhead essay :

It’s important to take steps to alter the culture of sexism, as the Air Force is doing right now in their sweep of all workspaces to find “smut” and “items that objectify women”. I detail this campaign in my recent Spearhead essay “Air Force to Scrap the Strawberry Bitch?”.

“michael” comments :

Remember, rapists aren’t always students from the university community.

elmer concurs :

They are usually residents of the neighborhoods that surround urban universities. And that is a subject taboo amongst white feminists, who think excoriating the well-behaved male college students will have any impact on actual assaults. The college women are damn well better served by self-defense and crime prevention training to teach them how it is, rather than how it ought to be.

Thanks in large part to some really horrid TV programming (16 and Pregnant, Secret Life of the American Teenager), there have been studies showing a decline in sexual activity among high-schoolers, a shift upwards in the average age of losing one’s virginity, and (a result) much fewer teen pregnancies.

It would seem all the publicity of girls who used protection (sex ed ftw) and still ended up pregnant really altered the landscape more than feminists did.

Another trend – these feminists as they get older keep writing about looking back and their regrets. I doubt the youth are that ambivalent that they wouldn’t have seen this. So, “you can have it all” is not reaching the kids, either. Go figure.

But last, and certainly not least – these kids were raised by them. They were “raised” by mothers who spent more time on their high-powered, high-paying jobs than home with their family. These kids would rather spend time at their friends’ houses whose moms are home, making food for them to stuff their faces with and have decent conversations with. (This assertion is largely anecdotal based on parenting board discussions and own personal experience.)

If there’s a shift, its really because feminists didn’t nurture a younger generation. They didn’t protect a younger generation. They murdered in utero, sold lies on sexual freedom, and abandoned them to nannies and other kids’ moms.

Its not that surprising to me that younger people are less enamoured with feminism.
