Run By Women, The World Would Be Better and More Fun | Psychology Today

"Men define history as a relentless march of progress. I define it as a parade of debauchery and oppression perpetrated by a small group of  bloodthirsty lunatics with penises, interrupted by the very occasional humanitarian achievement.History would have been entirely different, more fun, and lots better, if women had been the dominant sex."

When knowing is losing – gender factors in chess

"Normally knowing your enemy is an advantage. Not so in chess games between the sexes. In a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology Dr Anne Maass (et al.) pitted male and female players against each other via the Internet. Women showed a 50% performance decline when they were aware that they were playing a male opponent."

A word from a new member

Hello!  My name is Ivy -- I am relatively new to LJ and new to Feminazis.  I'd like to take this time to share myself with you.  {Note:  In the past I have gone by 'Dani'}

I am a 20-something college student in mideastern Wisconsin, having just started (Jan 09) my four year /plus journey in Women's Studies and Psychology.  So far I have always lived in Wisconsin, but feel VERY juxtaposed -- I feel like I don't belong here.  I feel so different from people in the Midwest and most Americans I know.  I really don't feel American at all.

In part I consider myself a humanist, in that males by definition aren't completely wrong and flawed -- I don't necessarily believe that males should not exist; however, I hate men. My hate of men and masculinity, and all the injustice that goes with it, is unbearably strong. There is no doubt that masculinity and maleness in this county, probably most of the world, is essentially flawed, wrong, evil, and counter-productive to the goals and good of human life. There is no doubt that male patriarchy and "being a man" is a horribly unjust institution, and I as well hate the way males are -- the way they are "designed." Everyday I think about how grateful and lucky I am to be a woman. I don't think I could live as ONE OF THEM.

I am interested in being a part of communities and groups like Feminazis to take part in the pro-female, anti-men movement. There is no doubt to me that our mission is one of pro-humanity and pro-growth, and that in fact our goal is certainly not to promote discimination and hatred but SEE IT ELIMINATED.

Certainly it would be false to say all men are entirely or mostly evil. But the truth is, being male and being a man is fundamentally about things like objectification and aggression; an overbalance of the ID; and honestly, an often complete abscene of rational thought. That men are "the rational ones" is ludicrous. Consider, for example, who is responsible for wars, violence, sexual abuse...

In many, many ways, females are fundamentally superior; they are far more evolved. For one example: humans are social creatures, and females are by nature far superior in this regard than males.

To qoute Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex",

"Some say that, after Adam, she is evidently a secondary being; others say on the contrary that Adam was only a rough draft and that god succeeded in producing the human being in perfection when He created Eve."

I am amazed that men have had so much power throughout the history of human civilization, when there is nearly infinite evidence showing the superiority of the female sex.  Perhaps it is their 'less-than-human' nature -- their inability to resist the primitive drives of aggression and status -- that keeps them in power.

Sexualisation harms young girls

The media's portrayal of young women as sex objects harms girls' mental and physical health, US experts warn.

Magazines, television, video games and music videos all have a detrimental effect, a task force from the American Psychological Association reported.

Sexualisation can lead to a lack of confidence with their bodies as well as depression and eating disorders.

Such images also have a negative effect on healthy sexual development in girls, the researchers said.

The task force was set up after mounting "public concern" about the sexualisation of young girls.

Research on the content and effects of television, music videos, music lyrics, magazines, films, video games and the internet was analysed.

Recent advertising campaigns and merchandising of products aimed at girls was also scrutinised.

Sexualisation was defined as occurring when a person's value comes only from her or his sexual appeal or behaviour, to the exclusion of other characteristics, and when a person is portrayed purely as a sex object.

feminism and body

So what is it about lesbians that makes them subvert the dominant paradigm and defy mainstream standards of beauty if not for their feminist leanings??? Come on straight feminists why do (some of you) still buy into the shave your body, diet, and wear makeup beauty ideal???

The present study examined associations between lesbian and feminist identity and predictors of female physical attractiveness. Seventy-two nonfeminist heterosexuals, 38 feminist heterosexuals, 75 nonfeminist lesbians, and 33 feminist lesbians were asked to rate according to physical attractiveness a set of images of real women with known body mass indexes (BMIs). The results showed that regardless of sexual orientation and feminist ascription, BMI was a dominant predictor of physical attractiveness. The results also showed that there were significant differences between lesbians and heterosexual women in BMIs of images found to be most attractive, with lesbians preferring images of women with significantly higher BMIs than heterosexual women. Self-identification as a feminist did not appear to be associated with a preference for larger BMIs. The findings are discussed in terms of sociocultural theory, which suggests that different communities may have different ideals of beauty.
