We have decided to publish this short email to Lasha Darkmoon as a feature article. It arrived in her inbox this morning. What do you make of it? (JSM)
Dear Dr Darkmoon,
I hate you because you are a woman. If you were a man, I might love you. But because you are a woman I can only regard you with unutterable contempt.
Women are abnormal. Our psychology is abnormal. I myself am abnormal. I am unfit to vote. I am unfit for equality. I hate feminism because, basically, I have a very low opinion of my own sex. I have no idea why God should take a rib out of Adam’s side and make a woman out of it. Big mistake.
I have just finished seeing the movie about the life of the sadistic serial killer Ted Bundy who sometimes had sex with the decomposing corpses of his victims. He is reputed to have killed as many as 100 women.The movie ends with these chilling words in a final caption:
“In the months leading to his execution, Bundy received more than 200 letters a day from women who claimed they loved him.”
This is what I mean by female abnormal psychology.
If you were to argue that not all women are like this, that women who enter into passionate correspondence with serial killers are hardly representative of their sex, I would concede that you had a point. But not a very good point. At best, a superficial one. Why? For the simple reason that you would be unable to find 200 passionate love letters coming every day from men to female serial killers.
Here lies the crucial difference: women in staggeringly large numbers write to serial killers every day, proposing marriage and declaring eternal love, but you don’t get men doing this. Men are on the right side of rationality, it seems to me, more rational than irrational. Women have crossed the red line into Unreason.
That is my point, and why I maintain that any claim by feminists that women are equal to men is a dubious if not bogus claim. I deeply regret having to say this, being a woman myself. But the truth needs to be stated, however unpalatable it may seem.
Women who find serial killers so irresistibly adorable are clearly unfit to vote, yet vote they do. They are not only unfit to vote, they are unfit for public office. They are unfit to assume a superior position to men in the workplace. This is not just a question of unfitness; it’s a question of right and wrong. Women are obviously wrong to oppress and humiliate men in the workplace with irrational orders stemming from their misandry.
In a word, women as a whole are unfit for equality.
Here lies the root of the problem: that women, who erroneously claim to be equal to men, should then go on to usurp superior positions. This is not only a crime against nature, it is a crime against reason—like letting the patients run the asylum. Nefas quia absurdum. It is wrong because it is absurd.
P.S. Feel free to publish this statement as an article, but do not write back to me. I hate you on principle and do not wish to enter into further correspondence with you.
