Emma Watson, UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador and feminist trash

Emphasis in text mine.

I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man …. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are.


She almost has a moment of clarity here, but goes off the rails about how men get "insecure" about male success.


If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled.


More blabber that demands men mobilize to free women, and blames women's natural instincts on men.


The more I spoke about feminism, the more I realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain is that this has to stop.


She demands that feminism stop being associated with man-hating, but leaves it up in the air as to how this is going to magically happen. Perhaps she can pull some Harry Potter shit.


My life is a sheer privilege


You're damn right it is.


Edmund Burke said all that is need for the forces of evil to triumph is for good men and women to do nothing

My Burke is a bit hazy, but I think the quote only had 'men' in it, but nice editing of history.


I feel like I've been seeing more and more of this shit in the news lately. I'm worried there's going to be another big push for "equal rights" that'll finally get me to leave this country for greener (less feminized) pastures, but I'm hopeful that there's been enough of an awakening of males regarding this nonsense that there'll be some pushback.

Pretty soon, the moon landing quote will be changed to ... "That's one small step for man (and woman), one giant leap for mankind (and womankind)."

They've already done far worse than that! They've changed the intro to the Star Trek movies to say "to boldly go where no ONE has gone before".

I'll give you a dollar if you guess what the intro used to say, instead of "no one". Swear.

She's just playing the game while trying to go big time.

They probably wrote up some lines for her to say and she gets to meet some serious connections.

I think you guys are being too hard on her.

Clearly her experience pretending she attended a school about dragons, fairies and magic makes her an expert on male-female relations.

^ Welcome to the reality of an Educated Woman: constantly status-whoring by letting all and sundry know They're Educated.

The Educated SWPL Women on my Farcebook are diddling themselves to a collective orgasm over this Emma Watson's speech. They're sharing it all over their male friends' walls hoping we'd say something.

The response is radio silence from most guys other than the usual manginas.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one among the guys I know who thought "TL;DR;WB"

What Watson said seems pretty anodyne to me, not enough to call her "trash."

UNWomen is an international organization. Most of what they do is in countries where women really do have problems, like real rapes, honor killings and genital mutilation.

They're not in the business of validating western girls with borderline personality disorder.

WTF?

My granpa always told me: don't believe in magic and those who claim to be magicians. He was right. Here is the proof.

There was a red alert though. Remember her cutting her hair short? Watson was long damaged before she made this speech.

If anyone knows about a parody film titled Harry Poundher (or something alike) I'd gladly rent that DVD.

I am surprised and disappointed at how many guys on social media lap this stuff up. The number of guys posting about how disgusting it is that women have to deal with cat-calling in the streets etc. Like this is a worse problem now than it ever has been in history. In reality, it's probably less. It's just a bunch of not-so-attractive attention-seeking uggos fake-complaining. I never see an attractive woman complain "oh, I hate how construction workers smile at me and whistle at me in the street".

I have my share of the chardonnay-socialist SWPL brigade as Facebook friends who wasted no time in trotting this landmark moment on my newsfeed, replete with such captions as "100 points for Gryffindor" and "Emma Watson is a goddess. One of them is an editor of mamamia.com.au (basically an Australian Jezebel). All but one of those shares were by chicks.

Was it a lack of courage that stopped me from commenting on how did acting in a spate of films revolving around magic spells and growing up qualified one to champion the cause of women's issues?

That her speech is fast on the way to being enshrined up there with Churchill's "Iron Curtain" speech or Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" address smacks of white privilege in a time where women in white society couldn't have it any better.

The best case scenario in this appointment is a focus on women's issues in those parts of the world where it really matters, those regions where women are not legally allowed to drive a car, or go to school, or would be disowned for sleeping with a boy from a different tribe.

...you know, societies where women face far more pressing threats than being catcalled in the street or having an arse groped in a club.

As opposed to it being heralded as a foothold in the battle for women's recognition in the Western world, mental masturbation for the cause of first-world women's problems indeed.

I got rid of Facebook and social media. I don't miss being bombarded by that stuff at all.

I defriended a guy who, of his own accord, posts white-knight nonsense. It's bad enough when they respond to some chicks fake-complaining with "That's jus' turrible...that you have to, ya know...ENDURE that!" But to lead with your OWN post about how "I'm sick about all the a-hole guys who approach women on the street...women I care about have to endure this...blah blah blah". ANd I think to myself, "grow. a. dick!"

BTW, I call it "fake complaining" because the reality is, women LOVE being cat-called on the street...they LOVE male attention, live for it, and would shrivel up and die without it. That's why I think its the uggo's who don't get male attention who want to deprive other girls of it, thereby lessening their own competitive disadvantage. THat's why so many feminists want women to be judged on their education, careers, etc - it's the only thing they can even remotely compete on!
