Feminist: We Must Protect The Concept of Feminism From "Conservative Appropriation"

Sure why not.


According to the New York Times' Jessica Valenti, conservative women cannot use the term "feminist" because their beliefs do no match up with hers nor in her mind help women. In today's edition of NYT, Valenti says:


"Now, we have a different task: protecting the movement against conservative appropriation. We’ve come too far to allow the right to water down a well-defined movement for its own cynical gains. Because if feminism means applauding 'anything a woman does' -- even hurting other women -- then it means nothing."

Valenti basically says that feminists wrongly led others to believe in a version of feminism that was separate from the truth. It does not simply mean equal treatment under the law or in the work place. Instead it means believing in ideals that ascertain only to the left. Because, according to Valenti, those ideals are what truly help women.

This is due to the leftwing feminists' dishonest use of the "Motte and Bailey" tactic in propaganda.

The Motte and Bailey tactic uses as its central metaphor a medieval castle. There are two main areas of it: the bailey, the useful but poorly defended area around the castle that must be defended, and the motte, the tower fortification itself, small but designed to resist assault.

The idea is that dishonest propagandists, such as feminists, will define "feminism" in two different versions: the Motte version, and the Bailey version.

The Motte version is the most defensible definition of feminism: that women are social and legal equals to men and should suffer no man-made impediments to their own pursuits of happiness.

Hard to argue against that -- that's why it's the Motte. The peasantry retreats to the well-defended Motte when the area is under attack.

But feminists also deploy a Bailey definition of feminism: That feminism means that we must have abortion on demand and that there may be no dissent about this, that the Wage Gap which doesn't exist must be eradicated by government action, that rape does not need to be proved by evidence, that some people with penises are actually women if they say they are, and so on.

Now, this terrain is harder to defend. This is the outlying area around the Motte -- the Bailey. Feminists really intend feminism to mean this series of dubious and fringe ideas, but when you call them on it, they retreat to the Motte and say, "But Feminism only means that women should be social and legal equals; how can you disagree with that, YOU HATER?!!!"

When this tactic has the effect desired-- that you back down and apologize -- they flow back out of the Motte into the surrounding Bailey and again begin making claims that any woman who doesn't believe in the left's bizarre list of Sex War agenda items is not really a woman, etc.

And then when you push against that again, they rush back into the Motte and insist again that feminism only means that women shouldn't be raped, etc.

And so on, and so on, lying forever.

If Jessica Valenti is concerned that many conservative women believe they're "feminists," that's because she and her dishonest allies are always playing this game of changing the definition of what "feminism" means according to whether they're on the rhetorical defense or rhetorical attack.

Maybe they should stick to one definition -- the crazed one they all obviously really believe in -- and push that as what "Feminism" really is, and let people if decide if they are feminists by that single definition.

But they won't. They'll keep playing Motte and Bailey games and then getting mad when conservative women say they're "feminists," according to the highly defensible "Motte definition" of feminism, selectively choosing when feminism requires the full Sex War litany of cultural demands and fringe obsessions.

24 It isn't about women and hasn't been for a long time. Feminism is a lot like environmentalism. It is about communism (or post-modernism or whatever West-hating anti-Enlightenment group with which they identify this week).

The strongest thing we can do is appropriate as many of these things as possible. I'll see your feminism and raise you equal opportunity and not an inch more. I'll see your environmentalism and raise you early 20th-century conservationism and not an inch more.

Plug in what you like, but appropriate like crazy. It is, unironically, for the children (among other things).

They can't, because too many women say they are not feminists, because - get this! - the term feminist has negative qualities to it.

SO they take the Bailey position to say "All women should be proud feminists because it's all about equality! How dare men and conservative make it a polarizing label!!"

I watched and mocked the Harry/Meghan Lifetime movie with friends last week, MST3K style. Good times.

Throughout the flick, the Meghan character kept saying in various ways that she wanted to be independent and not defined by a man.

My friends would shout out loud, "Honey, you are MARRYING A PRINCE." The character didn't want the fairytale and yet did at the same time. Which, while a very human trait, does not exactly make you miss feminism either.

This is true generally, and Hoft's headlines oversell.

But here, this is Joe DiGenova saying "So Grassley wants to see the notes of these people and he wants to interview the one [Flynn interview] agent who was there who was very, very, very serious about how Flynn did not deceive. That agent that he wants to interview is the agent who went to the Inspector General and complained about the conduct of Strzok and McCabe."

It indicates they are for one side, and not some "egalitarian" society, where (perhaps) there can be different roles that certain social networks may choose (stay at home moms?) ... but women and men have an equal opportunity to freely choose.

Of course "divide and conquer" is the real Orwellian game, with "equal rights" mean preferred treatment of every "minority" and every foreign ideology, quotas for thee but not for me.

I don't honestly know who Tomi Lahren is, just like I absolutely do not know who Scott Weinberg is but I'm sure his definition of hate is disagreeing with him.
Any how I guess honest debate is impossible with the left.

215 Valenti basically says that feminists wrongly led others to believe in a version of feminism that was separate from the truth. It does not simply mean equal treatment under the law or in the work place. Instead it means believing in ideals that ascertain only to the left. Because, according to Valenti, those ideals are what truly help women.

I think the translation of this is that women are incapable of succeeding on their own, so that they'll always need to be finding ways for the government to force them to get favorable treatment and hobble men accordingly. Any woman who claims that she doesn't need government interference and can be judged by the same standards of merit as men is a threat to that system.

The motte sounds like the point at which leftists should relent and say "good enough, our task is done". The bailey sounds like the leftist need to always keep pushing the overton window, even when it makes no sense, simply as a power grab. All of them have this need, not just feminists.

216 historically conservatives have been happy for the left to own the moniker "feminist". The same way they loved to wrap the name "liberal" around them. The left got away from liberal because they knew it was a loser. So why are conservative women using the word "feminist". Did the left win that battle? I say turn it around, back to the origin, and keep it a left wing radical term.

I always thought conservatives value the individual, men and women as individuals. Let the left divide us and rank us by grievance groups.

So when the magic trick method is revealed, it is no longer effective to use in the magic show. Once the fraud of the leftist magic is exposed, their "we stand for all women" BS loses its magic appeal, and they are exposed as angry fascists/leftists, who actually do saw the woman in half.

Hence, the othering of Conservative women while moving the goalposts of feminism away from femininity and more toward leftist idealogy.

If the leftist feminists are barking this out, it means conservative women's fight is working. It sounds as if the left is being pushed farther and farther back into a corner, or into a smaller box, to finagle the definition further.

It kind of means they are losing and needed a new strategy. I see women like Tami Bruce (spelling) say she is a feminist, but she's also conservative. Other like her saying they were a different type of feminist, so it is pissing off the left.

It's the left that are being forced to react to this. That's probably a good thing to hear.

Better that conservative women describe themselves as feminine rather than feminist, because even when I hear a Trump girl label herself as a feminist, what I really hear is "Team Vagina, rah rah rah I hate men, kill all the men!"

They're liberals, but they hold very similar views of feminism to "conservative" feminism, and frequently defend the rights of men and boys.

And they're - you know - actually accomplished, unlike Jessica "The Scrunt" Valenti.

Someone should ask The Scrunt what she thinks of them. Are they "appropriators," too?

299 That feminism means equal rights between men and women is utter horseshit now. It hasn't meant anything remotely like that in forever.

Better that conservative women describe themselves as feminine rather than feminist, because even when I hear a Trump girl label herself as a feminist, what I really hear is "Team Vagina, rah rah rah I hate men, kill all the men!"

Women like Gina Haspel and Suzanne Scott have certainly benefited from the movement; without feminism, they very likely wouldn't have the jobs they have now.

Now, what also seems to happen is that, when the victim or a supporter of this mob tries to counter, a new and separate group comes out attacking. Usually of a "How Dare You!" bent, claiming the high road while still attacking the victim.

Not a single exemplar of Reagan's three legged stool would follow any of those guys. No business con, no foreign policy con, no social con, and for that matter, not libertarian-con. Those names mean nothing to me and no one is going to follow them.

380 Another thing is that even if she toured doesn't mean she was singing it. Meatloaf toured more as a "performance" and I think a lot of times the female "singing" partner on stage with him was just lip syncing.

could be but I think I remember a video of the touring show and it sounded pretty crappy ergo I think they were doing a legit performance, at least for that show.
======
Never saw the Loaf live. I have seen youtube videos and on many of them it sure doesn't sound like a recording.

Posted by: simplemind at May 23, 2018 01:26 PM (1VJ59)

381 Okay, so the original Public Defender on Night Court sang on the record, but was replaced for the tour (and does not appear in the video performance used to market the song):

"The woman's voice on the record is Ellen Foley, but she was replaced on tour with Karla DeVito. Their performances were sexually charged, but it was an act, as Meat Loaf was happily married. Foley has been in various movies, including Fatal Attraction, Married To The Mob, and Cocktail. She was also on the TV show Night Court until she was replaced by Markie Post."

382 This sort of rhetorical trick applies to many,many,many arguments coming from the left. (we do it too but not often and when it does happen, we often call it out and call a spade a spade)

Definitely wrong. You may be mistaking the tour singer Karla DeVito with Kiki Dee

384 Over at Oregon Muse's linked post, there's this statement that represents even further retreat into the castle:

"Feminism is the radical proposition that women are people, too."

Posted by: m at May 23, 2018 01:29 PM (0bRDi)

385 The important thing is to try to avoid that ourselves when we are arguing or thinking through things. Its easy to do, and its fairly effective against a moderate or uncritical thinker.

Gun control, do we use this? Maybe. The motte would be "self defense is a constitutional right" but the bailey could be "suppressors, bump stocks, automatic weapons, open carry."

Remember, the Bailey isn't necessarily false positions, only positions that are not shared by many people. So suppressors and open carry aren't bad things, just things most people aren't willing to sign on for when they consider self defense.

So if someone says "that's crazy, nobody needs a bump stock" into the motte you go with "SECOND AMENDMENT!"

394 Feminism's biggest problem is the same one that almost all of the left faces: they succeeded in accomplishing their sane, proper goals.

Once you do this, once you get the general public to stop treating women like children, or minorities like sub humans you don't want around, etc, you have a choice: declare victory and move on..

...or find more to complain about in order to maintain your power, position, and the money given you to fight with.

They almost NEVER take that first more honorable and honest option.

When I read Ace's post, I was thinking the gun control argument the whole time. That is really a Motte and Bailey maneuver. First they say "we are not after your guns", but when they think the ground is fertile, they send a trial balloon of "yes we ARE after your guns".

399 I'm a second amendment absolutist "The right of the people to keep an bear arms shall not be infringed" simple really. I'm not a nut about it. I can agree to the limits on "weapons of mass destruction" and long range offensive (over the horizon) weapons but short of that you better have a good argument. No double standards there just a reasonable reading of our enumerated rights. (natural and god given and codified by our founders)

406 Logically, if the bailey (core) idea of feminism is the equality of men and women, then toxic masculinity has a parallel toxic femininity.
It seems to me that this very nasty idea actually came first, with a denial of the importance of women's work, e.g., raising children, caring for ones family and feminine values such as sex as an expression of love, not just momentary lust.

411 So the counter strategy should be?

Posted by: ahzoo at May 23, 2018 03:14 PM (wK745)

412 Motte and Bailey is a variation of "dual objectives" strategy. Always have two objectives, when the enemy defends one, go for the other. If they enemy defends bots they split their forces.

Posted by: ahzoo at May 23, 2018 03:16 PM (wK745)

413 Similar to Motte and Bailey is to attack and retreat to a conquered position, for example when gay marriage rights is the reinforced conquered position, LBGTQMZPLT + bathroom rights is the new terrain.

Posted by: ahzoo at May 23, 2018 03:22 PM (wK745)
