i wanted to talk a bit about the recent outing of an infamous reddit perv and the ensuing shitstorm implicating free speech, doxxxing and online anonymity. if anyone has noticed the utter hypocrisy of those condemning the gawker journalist while supporting the infiltrations of radical feminist space by
agent orange privileged white male basement dwelling using their work computer during work hours perving and harassing women online while their wives are at work MRAs, well, you arent alone.
in fact, its pretty difficult to miss this very obvious logic fail, and some are actually coming to the conclusion, albeit grudgingly, that within a “free speech” framework one cannot logically support infiltrating, harassing, surveilling, and dropping docs on radical feminists while simultaneously supporting online pervs “rights” to perv on women and children anonymously, with no real-life consequences. if you support “free speech” in one instance, logically, you must support it in both instances. (for this part, lets assume that all the children involved were legal adults and that the pervs didnt break any laws, even though that assumption is probably false. for our purposes, assuming that the speech of each side is legally protected speech, it is logical to support them both in the same way within a free speech context.)
in reality, it is only when one doesnt frame the issue in terms of “free speech” that it becomes acceptable and logical to differentiate between radical feminists and predditors and to support fucking ones shit up while protecting the rights of the other to continue with their work. so lets go there. how are people framing it, if not in terms of free speech?
welp…those who support dropping docs on radical feminists while simultaneously supporting pervs rights to perv are probably framing the issue thusly: “i support victimizing and lying about girls and women.” since pornographers, rapists, pimps, pervs and predditors are victimizing and lying about girls and women, and radfems arent, logically it is perfectly acceptable to condemn one (the feminists) while supporting the other (the pervs). while obviously a decent-human-being FAIL, this one is at least logically a WIN. its internally consistent.
at the same time, those who are framing the issue thusly: “i support telling the truth, including the truth about men and what they do to girls and women” are perfectly logically supporting radical feminists right to continue with our work unabated, while supporting
penalties alternate outcomes for MRAs and other pervs and misogynists. this is a logic WIN.
additional issues come to light, and need addressing, when (for example) people support predditors right to break the law, with or without also supporting radical feminist speech. in other words, supporting a policy whereby pervs and misogynists get to say literally whatever they want about girls and women, even if its against the law because it incites imminent violence, its child pornography, its obscenity etc. here, the issue is clearly being framed as such: “i support victimizing and harming girls and women across the board, even if it means breaking the law, period, full stop.”
here, the “free speech” framework is a complete obfuscation of the truth, and for that matter, so is attempting to justify that stance with the completely unrelated “but i support radfems free speech rights toooo!!” not so fast. in reality, in this instance, the issue is not free speech at all (because the pervs illegal speech is not protected, but the feminists legal speech actually is) and to say so is to equate apples and oranges. rather, what we have here is a demonstrated policy of unconditional support of misogyny and victimization, including criminal victimization, of girls and women by men. this framework — of unconditional support of the misogynist victimization of girls and women by men — should be recognized wherever anyone is supporting the pervs rights to perv, even when there are children involved, and even where the pervs actions implicate stalking, rape, or other illegal behavior.
and even when the ones supporting it are the so-called good guys who very democratically *also* support radfems rights to tell the truth without breaking any laws. gee, thanks doods. please do not fall for this one mkay. in reality, these “good guys” are lying their fucking asses off. in reality, these so-called “good guys” like kiddie porn, and they hate women.
and if all this sounds really boring, BTW, it is. it really, really is. thats because this is all male-centric issue framing, including breaking down whats “legally protected speech” and whats not. because we all know that there are plenty of perfectly-legal ways to harm girls and women, and that the male-centric legal framework doesnt even come close to addressing or redressing these harms. thats because its not intended to.
its also very boring to address whether its logical or illogical to condemn radical feminists for telling the truth about men, and what they do to us. because men will do this anyway, even when they cannot rationally justify it. (see above, hello!) they simply do not care whether its rational or not, they will do it anyway because radical feminists pose a legitimate threat and therefore must be destroyed. even at the cost of *gasp* their precious logic (and despite their alleged dislike for doc-dropping and ad hominems for that matter).
so before i bore you all to death, let me get to the point. my point really is that if anyone wants to go there — and wax poetic about free-speech and stuff, and things — i can go there too. im smart like that too.
and more importantly, that “free speech” is not even close to being the real issue when talking about doxing, or making parallels between doxing radical feminists versus doxing pervs, predditors and (other) MRAs. it is obvious that a goodly fraction of these men are lying — even the allegedly good, democratic-minded ones are fucking lying — about supporting or caring about free speech at all. they dont. most of them hate women, and like kiddie porn. end of. if they didnt, all of these debates — and indeed, the entire internet — would look very different than they do today. that is all.
