Dear Feminists and Women,
How are you? It's me, redpillschool. Just checking up on things. Oh myself? I'm not doing so well. Another person just tried to shame me for enjoying my sexuality. I know, it's pretty bad that we live in a society that encourages this. According to you, only stupid women have sex with me. I wonder if you'd say that to their face? I mean, she was just enjoying her sexuality. Something you feminists appear to be in favor for. Why are you being discriminating?
I wanted to talk to you about objectification of women really quickly. It's upsetting because I love women and would hate to see anybody treat one like less than a person. But it seems feminists are doing a great job of this as of late.
Let's address the word object. Objects have no agency. They cannot act for themselves. They can only be acted upon. I pick up a coffee mug and put it in the dishwasher. It is an object and cannot put itself in the dishwasher.
Let's talk about agency, the opposite of being an object. This is important. I have agency. Tomorrow I can decide whether to go swimming, or read a book. It's my choice. I have an active role in my future. Nobody can tell me what I can and cannot do. I am an agent.
Feminists used to be pretty upset at the idea that anybody would objectify women. This was the concept that women have no agency, and instead do only what other people act upon them. If I want a woman in the kitchen cleaning my coffee mug, I put her there and she does it.
Well gosh that sounds terrible.
Feminism agrees! Women aren't objects. They should never be treated as such.
So feminism, I have to ask. Why do you keep acting like women are objects and not agents?
Feminists keep telling me I'm disgusting, that I'm wrong and evil.. because I trick women into sleeping with me.
But feminists- you were the one who told me women are people and make grown up decisions for themselves! Are you saying that women are incapable of saying no?
I just don't get it. I'm trying to understand. Why would you deny women agency?
I have never had sex with somebody who didn't want to have sex with me. I respected their wishes because they are people. They're people with personalities and agency.
But you criticise them saying they are objects- that they have no agency! That they are tricked and manipulated, but have no active role in deciding who to have sex with.
How could that possibly be? If I am handsome and they are attracted, is that a trick? Or do you think I lie and say I'm a doctor? Would that be enough to "trick" somebody into sex? What if I told you I was a millionaire and a doctor, and I help children? Are you "tricked" into sex with me yet?
You're skeptical. You don't think I'm a doctor and millionaire. I'm betting you just decided reading this letter that you don't think you'd have sex with me. But.. if you made that decision.. as an adult person with agency...
...why would you deny other women the right to make the same decision?
Do you think most women are incapable of critical thought? Do you truly believe that if I lie about being a doctor that somehow absolves a woman of her right to choose, and her responsibility to verify? I wouldn't lie about being a doctor, it doesn't even make sense! Women wouldn't have sex with me because I'm rich- they're just not that shallow. I don't understand why you'd assume women are so simple that we can just use some magic cheat code on women and get them in the sack! They're people!
Feminists, I don't get why you objectify women. It just seems wrong. It's the 21st century, and I feel like you're behind the times. An adult woman can make decisions for herself, we don't need some big bad woman-group telling the little woman she can't make decisions. That objectification seems like something we should push against. We should start a group that represents the interest of women.
Because feminism, you objectify women, and they're people. So stop.
