"Feminist Tumblr: ‘Broken People’"

"Liberalism is a philosophy of consolation for Western Civilization as it commits suicide." - Jerry Pournelle

I consider all leftists to be mentally ill. They want normal people not only to accept but celebrate their sicknesses, and they believe no one is qualified to judge them...because it hurts their feelings.

This article is from The Other McCain.

She describes herself on Tumblr as an “economics student” and “vegan bi sexworker” who is “neurodivergent,” which may or may not be a synonym for crazy. She lists her diagnoses as GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and MDD (major depressive disaorder), although elsewhere she also lists BPD (borderline personality disorder). She is a one-woman DSM, basically — a living catalog of psychiatric symptoms. Here, let’s consult Wikipedia:

There is a neurodiversity movement, which is an international civil rights movement that has the autism rights movement as its most influential submovement. This movement frames autism, bipolarity and other neurotypes as a natural human variation rather than a pathology or disorder, and its advocates reject the idea that neurological differences need to be (or can be) cured, as they believe them to be authentic forms of human diversity, self-expression, and being.

In other words, these people aren’t crazy, they’re just “diverse,” and it is oppressive — a violation of their civil rights — to expect these kooks to behave like normal people. They are certified Special Snowflakes™ and how dare you judge them? Society must accept these “authentic forms of human diversity,” and if their “self-expression” takes the form of becoming tattoo-covered bisexual prostitutes posting nude selfies all over their Tumblr blog, only a hateful and intolerant bigot would criticize this “neurodivergent” behavior.

Normal (“neurotypical”) people can never criticize the neurodivergent Special Snowflake™ but she is always free to criticize us:

Women Are Doing Something That Isn’t Catered

To My Sexual Arousal and I Am Afraid:

A Tale for the Modern Heterosexual Male

What was she referencing by this? We don’t know. However, notice that she attributes fear to “the Modern Heterosexual Male.” The neurodivergent are qualified to diagnose the shortcomings of others. She has anxiety and depression, and this qualifies her to assert that normal men are afflicted by fear of women. Feminist Tumblr is full of women like this, who proudly list their mental illnesses in their profiles — thus to establish their credibility as victims of society — and who then proceed to identify the various failures of normal people.

“If you want to understand feminism, begin by studying abnormal psychology,” as I explain on page 18 of Sex Trouble: Essays on Radical Feminism and the War Against Human Nature. Feminism is an asylum, and the lunatics are running it. One of the pioneers of feminist theory, Kate Millett, “had serious mental health issues,” according to her sister, and was “a brutal sadist, a violent bully.” Another feminist pioneer, Shulamith Firestone, was a paranoid schizophrenic who spend decades living on public assistance. Crazy women like Jaclyn Friedman, who declares her “right to be wild” and go “down and dirty with strangers,” continue to be celebrated as feminism’s heroic leaders.

Once you recognize the influence of mental illness in shaping feminist ideology, you find yourself nodding in agreement with Professor Glenn Reynolds: “I’m beginning to think that most lefty movements are just about broken people trying to manipulate the rest of us so they can feel good about their broken selves.”

Indeed, the “broken people” are everywhere now, piling up like debris scattered by a storm or a flood. Decades of societal breakdown — accompanied by a cultural decadence that celebrates divorce, bastardy, prostitution and every imaginable perversion as expressions of “diversity” — have produced a generation of young people who lack the ability to form healthy, normal relationships. The “broken people” demand that society be further re-structured to accommodate their depravity and helplessness. School children must be taught how to negotiate sexual consent, because there are no longer any moral customs to regulate sexual behavior, nor are any of these feral youth capable of romantic sentiment, having been raised in a godless carnival of cruelty devoid of anything that might plausibly be called love.

A man found unconscious in a Nevada whorehouse turns out to be a former professional athlete once married to a member of a family of perverted celebrities. The only reason anyone ever heard of Lamar Odom is because he played basketball and married a Kardashian, yet his apparent drug overdose in a brothel is national news.

The only way to prevent yourself and your children from being swept downstream in this flood of wickedness is to avoid any contact with the “broken people,” including the weirdos in Hollywood and the feminist freaks who spew evil madness on the Internet.

Really. It’s important not to take any chances.

"Victim" has become the most coveted status among the American Left. Since they are devoid of any actual accomplishments. The problem with that is eventually some other group with higher "Victim Rankings" comes along and knocks you off your perch.
