In response to Laura Perrins: The Handmaid’s Tale, Britain 2018, Peter Evans wrote:
‘Torture porn’ – priceless, Laura, and a term that goes right to the core of that peculiarly malevolent psychopathology we insipidly call ‘feminism’. It’s a supremacist hate movement.
During one of his many interviews last year, Professor Jordan Peterson was asked by a somewhat perplexed young man what he thought feminists really wanted, since they seemed to get even more dementedly angry each and every time they get everything they demand. The good Doctor paused pensively for a moment before quietly replying, ‘Brutal male domination.’
Atwood’s repulsive misery porn novel isn’t a literary X-ray of the murderous, rapacious misogyny that she believed pulsated and throbbed beneath a phoney veneer of Christian virtue. If it’s an X-ray of anything, it’s of the feminist psyche. They’re surrounded by gentle, tolerant, good hearted, protective males in the Christian West, yet all they can see is rape, hate and murder. They mistake their hallucinations for reality, which is what Peterson was getting at. And their silence over a truly brutal, misogynistic woman-enslaving ideology which pretends to be a ‘religion of peace’ suggests that he was absolutely spot-on in his diagnosis.
Malevolence isn’t caused by unjust social conditions in a free, open society founded on liberty under the rule of law. It’s projected on to that society, or rather the male members of that society, from its true source: the feminist psyche. These women are seriously disturbed, infantile personalities. That the vast majority of Western women reject their poisonous male-scapegoating creed speaks volumes.
