Laura Perrins: It takes a father to raise a civilised man


Just who are the Everyday Sexists? Who are these men out there who the feminists claim spend all their time harassing women, cat-calling and sexually assaulting them?

I should not really give the great Everyday Moaning Project the time of day but as always the mainstream media, corrupt to the bones, cannot get enough.

At the Everyday Sexism Project young women can submit anecdotal evidence as to all the sexism they experience, from street harassment to scary advertising, up to and including sexual assault.

It is convenient that it is all anecdotal – and never subject to any kind of scrutiny whatsoever. This also deprives us of any information as to who the perpetrators are. It is just noise and emotion but never facts. Which pretty much sums up the entire feminist movement.

The Everday Moaning Project also gives the perfect opportunity for the feminist whine/brag. The whine/brag goes something like this – ‘I am so sick of men telling me how unbelievably hot I am. I mean it is just so sexist.’ Or, this man yelled out “Hey sexy lady, keep on smiling’ and it is just so awful.

The whine/brag is also often made in relation to men being inappropriate in the workplace. Although often it is not actually in the workplace. Oh, so and so married Mr Y hit on me, someone once informed me. Does this ever happen to you? No, I said. Never.

When did he hit on you, I ask. Oh it was 2am in taxi and we were pretty drunk. Right I said, well I don’t get into cabs at 2 am with drunken married men so that is why they don’t hit on me. You get the picture.

Although I think it is worth pointing out the inherent boasting of the whine/brag, as a social conservative I don’t think any of this behaviour from men is really defensible. So I am not going to say the women should just put up with it. But I am going to blame the feminists for it.

What is described here seems to be either low-level street harassment or out and out criminality ranging from assault to sexual assault. There are two reasons we have street harassment – the first is the death of chivalry, and the second is the death of the Bobby on the Beat.

Chivalry was designed in part to protect women. Generally, a man could not approach or even greet any woman he did not know. If he did know her he could not approach her unless she indicated he could. All the power was hers. But the feminists, as usual, jettisoned chivalry, saying it was sexist clap-trap intended to keep women in a cage. They could have tried to just reform elements of it, but, of course, revolution is more idiotic so they just got rid of it completely.

In modern times it is unlikely we can revive chivalry. However, Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens has written repeatedly about the importance of street patrolling by the local police constable. The police constable could have provided an important buffer against this obnoxious behaviour, but the feminists are not interested in traditional solutions in the real world. They would prefer just to tweet about their awful experiences in the Twitter-sphere.

Anything above this – criminal behaviour such as assaults and sexual assaults –  should be reported to the police – if you can find one. They are probably all swatted up somewhere, being generally useless.

Finally, I ask in all seriousness, if this really is a problem, then why are Millennial Men behaving in such a fashion? Surely, they are the sons of the feminist of 1970s and 1980s but between all the bra-burning and the wot-not, they could not manage to put any manners on their sons.

These sexist and abusive Millennnial Men are the grandsons of the boomers, the sons of hippies, the children of the liberal revolution. And yet the daughters of the revolution are not happy with the result. They should take it up with their mothers. A huge part of this, no doubt, is also that many of this unpleasant behaviour went unchecked in fatherless homes created by feminists in the first place.

This is the feminist legacy of our time: low-level street harassment and more. Like I said last week, it takes a lifetime of careful moral guidance and close supervision to raise a man who respects women. But most of all, it takes a father.
