The New Dumbest Thing Ever Written:
"Girls At University"
or: Why Stupid, Icky Girls Don't Need No Edjimication
Bishop Richard "All Them Jews Committed Suicide" Williamson
The Vatican's Favorite Holocaust Denier
Yes, possibly the very stupidest thing ever written. Check it out if you don't believe me. [via Metafilter]
Some of my favorite highlights:
"...because of all kinds of natural reasons, almost no girl should go to any university!"All kinds of natural reasons, mind you!
(Warning! Warning! Self parody alert!!!)
"The deep-down reason is the same as for the wrongness of women's trousers: the unwomaning of woman."
"That girls should not be in universities flows from the nature of universities and from the nature of girls: true universities are for ideas, ideas are not for true girls, so true universities are not for true girls."Ah, true universities and true girls...what about, say, true Scotsmen? Where do they fit into all of this?
"Survey the waste on any "university" campus today - feckless unmen and trashy unwomen whose noblest activity is throwing frisbees at one another!"Well, that's bordering on fair actually...
"Such "universities" dedicated to the defiance of God and Nature, make mincemeat of the youngsters' Faith (if they had any), of their morals and of their common sense."He's got a wee point there, too. There does seem to be a certain cynical, negative, "debunking" style to a great deal of university education...
His mind is designed not to be swayed by feelings but on the contrary to control them, so that while his feelings may be inferior to hers, his reason is superior. And reason being meant to rule in rational beings, then he is natured to rule over her (Gen. III, 16), as can be seen for example whenever she needs to resort to him for her feelings not to get out of control.Hear that, girls? Our reason is superior. Yay our reason! You are meant to be ruled by us. We rule! We rule you! Even girls who are smarter than boys are meant to be ruled by boys because boys (or: true boys) are reasonally superior to mere girls (or: true girls). QED.Mr. Williamson's reasoning here should clearly demonstrate to you the vast superiority of male reason to your puny helping of reason given to you by the just and wise reason-giving God who hates you. And if you don't understand that Williamson's arguments, though seemingly cobbled together by some asshat without two neurons to rub together, are actually sound, well, that just shows how pathetic your reason is, now doesn't it?
"Woman's thinking is subjective, inward, intuitive, concrete, small-scale, with a gift for loving details. University thinking needs to be objective, outward, rational, abstract, large-scale, with a drive towards the grand principles. Her thinking follows her heart. University thinking can only follow the head."Actually, this sounds a lot like many contemporary radical feminists and feminist epistemologists. Really. So in a way, Mr. Williamson is on the cutting edge of Po-Mo-y scholarship here. Is there some kind of principle that explains the convergence of craziness?
Well, there's also some awesome stuff about why the Catholic church "alone can create true universities, directing all study ultimately to the glory of God and the salvation of souls." ("true" universities, mind you. Not, y'know, regular ones. Mr. Williamson likes his 'true's.) But we can only take so much awesome nowlidge in one day, right? Especially you girls out there who are probably getting all confused and emotional by this point, wondering "where is my manly husband who can come and explain all this to me, or, rather, calm me down and help to conquer this unwomanly desire to understand?" Well, if you hadn't spent so much time reading Plato and playing frisbee and f*cking, you wouldn't be in this pickle, now would you? So it's not like we can feel sorry for you. If you'd have been having babies like you were supposed to, everything would be fine.
It'd be fun to go through and demolish Mr. Williamson's silly screed line by line, but I've got actual things to do, and I'm trying to waste less of my time refuting patent g*ddamn idiots. So I'm going to stick with this drive-by ridicule and go spend my time on something more important.
Peace out, feckless unmen and trashy unwomen.
Next week: all kinds of natural reasons why true people should not truly believe in the true Holocaust...
