Hat tip – Ozy Franz, who does a quite good job off hacking up this toxic piece of hate. As she and her commenters point out this is a nearly comprehensive list of man-hatred that you really have to wonder why he doesn’t just run off and kill himself in a fit of self-loathing, or failing that, just cut off his manhood like a good priest of Cybele, if he is this submerged in the Mother archetype. Paul Elam nails this when he calls it the “failed manhood of White Knights”.
There is so much going on this hot mess that I hardly know where to start.
“Your male guardian knows he cannot stop you from doing what you’re going to do. He knows this because nobody stopped him, and generally, the girls were into it as much as he was.”
This is sexual bragging about what a testosterated stud he was back in the day. And remember that he is addressing this to his daughter. Creepy much?
Eeew, the sexual possessiveness :
“If things are going well between your guardian and your gentleman caller, your male guardian will dislike your new boyfriend. He’ll play with guns if he has them.”
Then there’s the Men As Beast trope in counterbalance to the Dainty Damsel trope:
“They are all stronger than you. Do not test this. Ever. Even the totally wimpy ones have the benefit of excess testosterone and muscle mass you cannot see. When enraged, they will abandon logic and self-preservation”
Then there is male hyper-agency, part of every pogrom-ready bigot’s SOP, because men drive everything in the world and frail little damsels are responsible for nothing, which if you are historically illiterate the way Iceowl is, you probably think is convincing:
“There is nothing more dangerous than an insecure male. All the world’s worst wars have been started by insecure men who blame their failures on the weather or other people, and feel their minor successes are worthy of Nobel prizes.”
Then alongside the dainty damsel, pure vessel trope there is the flattering imputation of worldly wisdom to this embodiment of the Sacred Feminine, the all-knowing Mae West woman of the world, who deserves better than this kind of incompetence:
“Young men do not understand female sexual response. To put a finer point on it: they have zero concept. Despite the predominance of sexual material in the media today, men are not taught how a woman responds to sexual stimulation in any effective manner. (…as if women are taught or know any more about men’s sexual responses.) He presumes he is being perceptive by theorizing your response is the same as his. (And Daddy knows this how?) Therefore, early attempts at sexual contact with a young male will be horrendously unsatisfactory to you, while entirely mythic in proportion to him. You may enjoy the new power you can exert over him, and how pliable he has become. This wears off quickly, though, and then you’re stuck with in bed with a know-nothing kid. (And although you are equally a know-nothing kid, you, my darling princess deserve better, much better!) (worse, you can get just as pregnant or infected by really crummy sex as with earth-moving sex. why risk it?) (Eeew, again, eeew. This sounds so much like no man can ever measure up to Daddy , whatever it may actually mean, that I need to conquer my retch reflex just now.)
Then Iceowl veers off into genuine psychopathy:
“Make no mistake. Your male guardian will cause grievous physical injury (or death) to anyone who harms you. Every day he prides himself on imagining he will do that. Do not pull that trigger unless you are serious. You have seen the movies. Be careful. Some things cannot be undone.”
Get that, little lady? If I go off and murder someone, it will be all your fault. I won’t be to blame, I have no accountability it this – you manipulated me into this! “See what you made me do!!!!”
And I am going to leave it there and just call the HAZMAT team for clean-up.
Thank God for a feminist like Ozy, for whom feminism is the radical notion that men are human.
Girls with fathers like this should be required by law to wear warning labels on all their clothing, not for anything they have done, but because the boys they are going to encounter deserve the warning.
So if there remains any doubt about how completely unhinged and unacceptable this kind of bigoted hate speech is, let’s flip it to the male side and see how a mother might talk to her son in the same vein (Trigger warning for misogyny as extreme and disturbing as the misandry in Iceowl’s piece of filth. The difference is, I am not depraved enough to think this kind of thing is acceptable; it is simply reflection of Iceowl’s depravity):
“Son, you need to know something about teen-aged girls. They are, every one of them, the same bag of raging hormones that you are, and they want sex so bad the doorknobs aren’t safe from them; but here’s the thing – they all deny it. So they will play all hard to get, to improve their bargaining position, or else they will go ahead and jump your bones but then call it rape afterwards when they feel ashamed, or more likely, when their toxic little friends talk them into feeling ashamed.”
“And if this happens, rest assured I will hang that lying little slut up by her lying tongue with a tuna hook and leave her for the police to find. Momma doesn’t like noisy, smelly guns”
“Something else you need to understand now and later. Girls and women feel entitled to children and they will get them anyway they can – your wishes in the matter mean nothing to them if they conflict with their own. That means she may try to have sex with you when you are drunk, she may try to steal a used condom and impregnate herself, and she will have the full weight of the law to protect and enable her if she does, and there goes your life. What you wnat to do with your life is no concern of hers and the law’s – you’re just fucked.”
Iceowl wrote some sick shit. See how sick?
