Of course, plank Is an educated woman, educated beyond her hat size apparently
Why are so many female journalists like Margaret Wente using their voice to reify rape culture, instead of criticizing it?
Well, who is this cray-cray person?
Viral Content & Social Justice Editor at PolicyMic. Masters degree from the London School of Economics. Behavioral science consultant by training and feminist crusader by passion.
Uh, “Social Justice Editor”? Social justice is a mirage, as Friedrich Hayek observed, and we might therefore assume that Liz Plank‘s job is to advocate for unworkable schemes of utopian impossibility.
Nice work, if you can get it.
Liz Plank is “buttmad” about something that was published 12 days ago by Emily Yoffe at Slate, pointing out the role that alcohol plays in the date-rape phenomenon plaguing colleges and universities. Yoffe said that, for sexually predatory men, “the rise of female binge drinking has made campuses a prey-rich environment.”
This would seem to be merely a common-sense observation, which Yoffe elaborates by reference to research on the phenomenon, but feminists went nuts, screeching that Yoffe was engaged in misogynistic victim-blaming and slut-shaming and enabling “rape culture.”
Just when you thought the resulting screech-fest had played itself out — see my two cents, “The Drunk Sluts Rights Movement” — Plank responds by complaining that telling women not to get drunk “would be sensible advice if it didn’t reinforce the very structures that make sexual assault not only possible, but probable.”
You see that word “structures”? That’s jargon.
Jargon is a method of avoiding plain truth, and the minute people start talking that way, I figure them to be pretentious idiots who arrogantly assume they can baffle us with fancy bullshit.
Oh those Feminuts, stricken with Eternal Bitterness Syndrome one the many Liberal Maladies I have diagnosed over the years
But, I ought to note that Elizabeth seems to break one rule about Feminists, she is very attractive, and if she would shirk the chains of “Social Justice” and perpetual victim hood, she might even be a fun person. Note, I did not say anything overtly sexist there, you know, like suggesting Liz make me a sandwich, and boy would a nice cold beer be nice with that or what?
