Have you ever been in a situation in which people were expected to make small talk, and you were asked in which historic epoch you would have liked to live in? I think it's an absurd question, but it's one that enjoys some popularity. Especially women seem fond of that kind of daydreaming. However, as soon as people explore this topic, they make one serious mistake: they refer to the elites, the aristocracy.
Don't get me wrong, this kind of comparison is of course perfectly legitimate if you happen to be the Queen of England and ask yourself whether any of your ancestors might have been a happier parasite than you are. However, the vast majority of people aren't quite so lucky. So, the next time a girl asks you a question like that, before blabbering about how fabulous it must have been to have lived in the baroque era, tell her to think about the fate of the common man. Suddenly, this comparison isn't quite so sexy anymore.

But where am I going with this? Well, in my last post I discussed the topic of alleged female power, in short, the hypothesis that women hold all sexual power, and can have sex with whom they want, when they want. As I thought more about this, it struck me that the feminists who came up with this must have made the same mistake as your typical ditzy teenage airhead who wonders what being a courtesan of Louis XIV was like. Likewise, instead of wondering how the average woman might fare in a typical club or bar, feminists, seem to have pictured supermodels and actresses instead --- but in a regular club, so that they'd really stand out. As Fifth Season pointed out in the comment section of my last article, Leonardo DiCaprio got tired of Bar Refaeli, a woman surely plenty of men fantasize about. But if you're Leonardo DiCaprio, you can have plenty of other hot women, which again renders the concept of female sexual power invalid.
Feminist ideology is full of absurd comparisons, ignoring the fate of the average man or woman in typical situations, and instead focusing on extreme outliers, and possibly even in unrealistic situations. Just think of all this talk about the alleged subjugation of women. Men always had it so much better in history and all that.. You know, men were kings, generals, authors, scientists, tycoons and whatnot. But what was the fate of the common man? I once asked a feminist how many women she believed have lost their lives fighting in World War II. She threw a fit and accused me of not taking the plight of women seriously. I don't care what your bullshit feminist theory textbook says. Compared to the risk of dying on the battle field or returning home with a missing limb, it's not so bad to be subjugated. If it isn't a privilege not to have to fight in a war, then I wouldn't know what is. But why bother with those pesky little details when you can focus on the "big picture" instead?
