How Radical Feminists Recruit
Gullible Females for Victimhood:
Demonize men; Victimize women

The following essay by D.A. Clarke is a stunning example of how radical victim-feminists seek to convince gullible females that they are part of the victim-class. When you have finished reading this, DA*DI suggests that you look at the summary from Dr. Warren Farrell's Myth of Male Power.

PRIVILEGE

Privilege is simple:
going for a pleasant stroll after dark, not checking the back of your car as you get in, sleeping soundly, speaking without interruption, and not remembering dreams of rape, that follow you all day, that woke you crying, and

Privilege is:
not seeing your stripped humiliated body plastered in celebration across every magazine rack,

Privilege is:
going to the movies and not seeing yourself terrorized, defamed, battered, butchered - seeing something else.

Privilege is:
riding your bicycle across town without being whistled at or run off the road, not needing an abortion, taking off your shirt on a hot day, in a crowd, not wishing you could type better just in case, not shaving your legs, having a decent job and expecting to keep it, not feeling the boss's hand up your crotch, dozing off on late-night buses,

Privilege is:
being the hero in the TV show and not the dumb broad, living where your genitals are totemized, not denied, knowing your doctor won't rape you.

Privilege is:
being smiled at all day by nice helpful women; it is the way you pass judgement on their appearance with magisterial authority, the way you face a judge of your own sex in court and are over represented in Congress and are not strip searched for a traffic ticket or used as a dart board by your friendly mechanic,

Privilege is:
seeing your bearded face reflected through the history texts not only of your high school days, but all your life, not being relegated to a paragraph every other chapter, the way you occupy entire volumes of poetry and more than your share of the couch unchallenged, it is your mouthing smug, atrocious insults at women who blink and change the subject--politely.

Privilege is:
how seldom the rapist's name appears in the papers and the way you smirk over your PLAYBOY.

Its simple really,
Privilege means someone else's pain.
You've always had it and that's why it doesn't seem to make you sick at your stomach.
You have it, we pay for it...

Now do you understand?
