Blog #2

12 Nov

After listening to the mountain of garbage opinions in our class, I needed to listen to someone with a rational and funny mind.  Here is blog post written by Male Chavaunist Dick Masterson.  While I disagree with some of his opinions, I do agree that feminism is nothing but a scam started by women in order to further their own undeserved careers.  I’m not against women in the workplace.  If a women is qualified for her job, than she has every right to be working.  I have no problem working for a women as long as she is an adequate employee.  This doesen’t change the fact that a majority of feminists are a bunch of whiners who do nothing but wallow in their own self pity. 

The Handmaid’s Tale is probably one of the most painful and annoying books I have ever read.  The author of that book obviously hates men.  She also stole her ideas from George Orwell’s 1984.  That book proves how weak women can be.  Seriously, Margaret Atwood should stop writing and stick to watching Oprah with all the other mindless sheep in the world.  Feel free to comment.

    John — do you think its possible that Atwood is portraying a situation in which men themselves are perpetuators of a system they cannot control? It doesn’t seem to me that figures like Offred’s commanders really have much of a choice in enforcing the Handmaid system, and that this may be Atwood’s way of showing sympathy and that she does not hate men. She also portrays Luke’s misunderstanding of how she feels having had her livelihood taken away as a simple misunderstanding, rather than sexist. Just my take on it.
