Are you wearing your Feminist Lesbian uniform?

We’ve had some discussion lately about what kind of attire and personal adornment is appropriate for today’s discerning and responsible progressive feminist. These topics are a perennial favorite: should feminists shave our legs? Wear lipstick? High heels? Personally, I’ve always felt that we should trust feminists to think about the issues involved and make their own decisions, within the context of their own lives and a shared culture that wants us to do all sorts of ridiculous things. That is, as long as you all make sure to wear your feminist and lesbian uniform at least two or three times a week.

Seriously, this is the best anti-feminist rant I’ve ever read. (Hat tip to sabotabby and pandagon.) The author seems like he’s also working to expose the Rockefellers, international Zionist conspiracies, the New World Order, and probably the Bilderbergers, Freemasons, and our reptoid overlords as well.

Clearly, there are many big problems in the world that need to be addressed on his site, but I’m glad he took time to call out the Rise of Blue Jeans and the evil conspiracy it entails. More quotes after the jump, and I’ll help you understand the depths of this plot against humanity.

“Slovenly” “Drab” Unkempt” “Slatternly” “Blowzy” –many adjectives come to mind to describe most women who wear jeans.

Drab? Drab!? I may be a blowzy, slovenly slattern, but how can you be drab when you’ve used a bedazzler to make rainbows all over your blue jeans? (For the record, this makes them more gay, but possibly less feminist.)

Occasionally they are with men who are also clad in blue denim, emphasizing the unisex character of this proletarian garb.

These “couples” probably have “anti-missionary” sexual intercourse where the woman is sometimes on the top!! Possibly WITHOUT REMOVING the blue jeans, so that they have proletarian-style denim-infused orgasms. Afterwards, the woman does not even make the poor neutered blue-jean man a sandwich.

But usually these women are alone and don’t look happy. Often they look angry and confused. Usually they are talking on a cell phone or listening to their ipod.

This is easy to explain. The blue dye used for denim contains chemicals that MAKE you angry and confused, and probably cause you to swear as well. Just like an oxytocin overdose, blue denim makes it impossible for women to pair-bond meaningfully and monogamously with real men. Wearing blue jeans means women can only have cold, unfeeling, manipulative relationships where they abuse men and then suck all their money out with their blue-stained, vacuum-cleaner hoo-hoos. Then they turn to the cold metallic comfort of their cellphones and iPods. (Amanda raises the possibility that these women look angry and confused because the author of this piece was probably staring at them and their slatternly denim. But a feminist WOULD say something like that — it’s always about making it the man’s fault.)

Men, if you’re tempted by such a woman, her jeans signal that you may have to deal with her “GID” – “gender identity disorder.” Her jeans are saying: “I don’t want to be a woman. I don’t want to look good for men. I fear and distrust men. I want male prerogatives.”

After you buy your tenth pair of blue jeans, you get your free first shot of testosterone, and the right to be stigmatized by most of society, health care providers, the legal system, etc. as a gender outcast. But hey, you will get those male prerogatives, and it’s not like you could ever have those without gender identity disorder. And of course nobody is attracted to women in blue jeans! The 1980 release of these subversive Calvin Klein ads almost caused millions of red-blooded men to vomit as they saw Brooke Shields broadcasting her gender identity disorder, simultaneously fearing, distrusting, and coveting manliness. Can’t you see it in those photos? Instead, the female rump should be hidden by flowing skirts, so as to distinguish humanity from baboons.

Feminism which espoused “women’s rights” actually has driven femininity underground, torn the sexes asunder, and stripped woman of recognition for being wives and mothers, roles essential to their fulfillment, to men, and to children and society.

Young women were told they were rebelling against oppressive patriarchy and inequality and all things bad. They never imagined they were betrayed by feminist teachers and politicians, who are intent on breaking up the family and abandoning us all to State and corporate control.

Blah blah blah textbook stuff yeah yeah, student has demonstrated understanding of the relevant right-wing source material, B+

They never imagined that the “women’s movement” was inspired and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation as part of their ongoing social engineering program.

You think it was CHEAP to develop the blue jean technology described above? We had to get the money from somewhere, even though everyone knows the Rockefellers are a bunch of reptilian-humanoid aliens who plan to suck us all into their pyramid-shaped spacecraft and take us back to Draco to be eaten by Lord Xenu. The thing is, if you make sure to worship them and wear your blue jeans, you will BE EATEN FIRST.

They want to destroy the family because lonely confused people are easier to manipulate. This is the real story behind the “sexual revolution.”

This phenomenon is easily observed at any shopping mall, where lonely, confused blue-jean-wearing zombies stagger in and out of the Gap, Old Navy, H&M, Target, Club Monaco, etc. responding to pre-programmed signals received by those little metal “studs” on their jeans. The messages from their jeans and iPods telling them to buy more jeans, have lots of sex, and point accusingly while screaming hoarsely at any woman who’s not wearing blue jeans.

I imagine women would wear dresses and skirts if there wasn’t a subtle feminist stigma against looking feminine. Thus women can make a statement by wearing a skirt or dress. They can show they aren’t afraid of men, and may actually like them.

Although some skirt-wearing women and men may disagree, skirts are a universally understood signal that means “I’m not a feminist, or a lesbian! I like you, Henry Makow! Please, approach me from behind and insert your manly tool. I cannot run away very fast, because of my flowing unbifurcated leg garment.”

Men should politely voice approval and support of women they see who are dressed in a feminine way.

“I see you’re wearing a dress, as opposed to those blowzy, drab blue jeans. I just want to let you know that I approve and support your femininity. Say, how fast can you move in that?”

I can still remember a young woman I saw five years ago wearing a frock. This is how powerful femininity is.

I really don’t want to know if there was anything besides the frock that made this moment so memorable.

Let’s not let pious highly-paid feminists and lesbians destroy it. It’s time for real women to relegate jeans to garden work.

But not blue jeans — preferably black or green. And only when gardening. OK, and maybe when cleaning behind his toilet too, and clearing out the gutters for him. Oops, sorry, I’ve got to go — my Rockefeller contact is dropping off another shipment of blue jeans and my weekly salary of $250,000. All praise our reptilian overlords, hissssss.

On a more serious note, if you are actually interested in the important intersection of femininity and feminism, I still recommend Whipping Girl by Julia Serano, and if you’re interested in some more analysis and discussion of the book, this recent thread on pandagon.

    Let me be the first skirt-wearin’ feminist to speak up: certain skirts are very comfy. I wear one sometimes on hot days and it doesn’t stop me from riding bikes/crawling under desks/sitting with legs akimbo. I’m an engineer, and if something’s more comfy and takes less thought than jeans (which often want to ride down), then I’m all for it. Mine are just below knee-length and very full, just like the skirts of the guys I know.

    That, of course, should not be taken to imply in any way, shape, or form that the author isn’t suffering from either severe acute or congenital idiocy. I especially love:
    > I imagine women would wear dresses and skirts if there wasn’t a subtle feminist
    > stigma against looking feminine.

    Also, in cool weather I wear blue jeans nearly every day, and in summer I often wear blue jean shorts. So why am I not a highly paid feminist and lesbian yet? Where the hell is my money? I’m gonna call up the Rockefeller Foundation right now and demand my hefty grant check.

    I wish this guy could see me out with my boyfriend on a Friday night–me in jeans, him in one of his many kilts. His head would probably explode at the gender nonconformity.

    And then we wouldn’t be exposed to crap like this anymore.

  10. August 6, 2008 at 11:00 am

    hahaha! What a lunatic.

    Blue jeans are an exceptional item of popular culture precisely because they are capable of bearing a plurality of meanings. Brook Shields’ hot little 14-year old ass in a tight pair, professing “nothing comes between me and my Calvins” (elbow nudge), is loaded with an entirely different semiotics than a shirtless 50 Cent wearing sagging jeans with his boxers hanging out, than a the cowboy in marlbroro ads, than a punk rocker in a tattered pair, than Kate Moss in a $3,000 Versace pair of studded designer jeans, than any number of non-american countries identifying blue jeans with an imagined “american value system”…I could go on.

    Although obviously his hilarious point of view on the role of femininity is tempting to weigh in on, but I’m satisfied that he makes an asshole of himself without any help from our commentary.

    The inability of this person to register the basics of human motivation and experience is evidenced most obviously in his myopic view of blue jeans, which any moron can see are a great great symbol of how meaning production works.

    “Men should politely voice approval and support of women they see who are dressed in a feminine way.”

    oh and also? Don’t do that. yeeeeah, thnx.

    That is quite possibly the dumbest fucking thing I have ever read…. and that’s saying a lot considering I taught middle school for a while. I wonder what this guy would think about a pre-op transwoman at my church who always wears blue jeans and killer high heels. Hell, her very existance would probably give him a heart attack.

    By the way, did anyone else notice all the fucked up stuff that was on that page. These people have clearly lost it… assuming they ever had it to begin with.

    But what about denim skirts? I mean, they’re skirts . . . . but they’re OMG BLUE JEANZ.

    On weekends, I rotate between my favorite casual skirt (long flowy hippie thing that’s not really office-appropriate) and blue jeans. I am actually planning to invest in two Utilikilts at some point because they’ve got a tailored look that will be good for work, but also all the pockets I need to get through the day. Will wearing utilikilts turn me into a highly paid feminist lesbian? Because I could sure use more money.

  21. August 6, 2008 at 11:38 am


    The only reason I don’t have Utilikilts right now is because they retail for like $150, and despite my love of blue jeans I do not seem to be a highly-paid feminist. *sigh*

  26. August 6, 2008 at 11:57 am

    #19. Um, yeah. Today I am wearing a subtly slutty stretch-denim, um, dress. Because it is my birthday, and so I wanted to wear my feminist uniform in rebellion against my (mostly male) law firm dress code…but it’s like 85 degrees out there today, and jeans just did not make it.

    I think I will obviously confuse a man with the jean dress. He won’t know what to do!! Bwaaa hahahahahaha!

  27. August 6, 2008 at 11:57 am

    Okay, okay…I admit it. I’m a frumpy, overweight middle-aged feminist. However, I do wear skirts and dresses, therefore I must not hate men *laughs*.

    I do like loose skirts and dresses. For work, I prefer them over pants because they are more comfortable, and it allows certain areas more air flow so I get fewer yeast infections (if you are prone to them, give up pants and panty hose, I swear it works). I do love my jeans, though. When just running around town on weekends I tend to wear either my jeans or denim leggings.

    I also do not shave my legs (gasp!), style my hair (GASP!) or wear makeup (HORROR!). However, this has more to do with my fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue than my feminism. I just don’t have the energy to deal with such things. It pisses me off, however, that I have to do all of those things if I go on a job interview. If I wear makeup, I get job offers. If I don’t, I don’t even make it to the 2nd interview. It’s wrong, totally wrong, but we have to live with the way it is unfortunately.

    I will admit that, when I have enough money, I keep my nails (and toenails) painted a nice bright red. Unfortunately, I seldom have enough money to maintain it, but I do love my red nails. So does my husband. For that matter, so do my cats. Really weird, they can’t resist nibbling on my red nails.

  28. August 6, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    Cannot. Stop. Laughing.

    I’ve been wearing skirts for days. Why? Because it’s hot as hell in Southern California and skirts allow for excellent ventilation! But I had no idea I was a traitor to the anarcho-oligarchic-marxist-feminist leadership by putting function before fashion. I’ll rectify that immediately. JEANS! JEEEAAAAAAANS!

    Her jeans are saying: “[…] I don’t want to look good for men.

    Mmmm, I think my fiance would disagree that jeans necessarily say that… as, I think, would any heterosexual man who appreciates a nice butt.

    Men should politely voice approval and support of women they see who are dressed in a feminine way.

    Nothing would send me running home to change into jeans faster. I mostly wear skirts and dresses because I like the way I look in them, and because it’s hard for me to find pants that fit properly, but I hate the idea of sexist assholes like this one thinking I’m doing it for their approval.

    Hmmm… his personal website is blocked as “hate speech” under my work’s internet filter.

Will that fabric leach into our bloodstreams and affect our behavior, to the point that we suddenly feel an uncontrollable urge to go to see Sex and the City and moon over [insert name of current hunky heartthrob]? Or something even worse?

    That is one of the fastest way to make me take out my mace and then get the police.

    I don’t know about the rest of you but my only reason for getting dressed in the morning is the approval, support, and appreciation that a man would show me.

  40. August 6, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    I wear jeans daily. Becuase obviously I hate all men and I’m trying to destroy the very fabric of society. It helps that I’m fat, a feminist and definately one of those weirdo leftie liberal types.

    And I’m a Youth Worker. Rockerfeller foundation is paying me gazilllionz to go and ruin the gender identity of young peoples.

    Which of course is why I only own one pair of jeans and two pairs of sweats …. cos ya know I’m sazing my high pay lesbian feminist cheques for the reptoid jeans.

Another is an internal link to one of their archived articles that maintains that Hitler and the Nazis were defending themselves against a “declaration of war” by Jews!

    I’m surprised that Mr. Jeans Hater didn’t manage to throw “Jewess” in with his other insults. Maybe it slipped his mind? (I’d like to tie him down and subject him to that “Jewess Jeans” commercial spoof from the old Saturday Night Live until his head explodes.)

    To add to the anecdata* a sundress is usually what I wear when I have nothing to do that day and plan on sitting in my basement reading blogs, eating Doritos, and knitting. And it’s usually paired beautifully with a pair of ratty old flip-flops and unbrushed hair. I kind of wonder how he’d react to all the internal contradictions there….

    *Though, really, who the hell has never worn a pair of jeans? And when was really the last decade that jeans were considered strictly lower-class? Did the man just pop in from 1890, or has he been in this time period for a while?

    Drab!? I may be a blowzy, slovenly slattern, but how can you be drab when you’ve used a bedazzler to make rainbows all over your blue jeans? (For the record, this makes them more gay, but possibly less feminist.)

    Yes!! I’m giving my daughter GID by allowing her to wear jeans and she’s only 6! I just can’t believe this guy caught onto my plan.

    Henry Makow is so frightening, I kinda hope he’s just a performance artist, but I don’t think he is. Last time I googled him I found a book he had written on how to go to another country and find a sufficiently “feminine” wife who will worship her husband. I think he’s a sick, sick rapist with some sort of severe superiority complex.

  56. August 7, 2008 at 1:39 pm

    Oh God, this man is hilarious. This man is hilarious and I am obviously a Fake Feminist.

    I do not own a pair of trousers of any sort. I have not worn a pair of trousers of any sort since I was twelve or thirteen. I wear skirts and dresses and only skirts and dresses; trousers don’t look good on me and I don’t feel comfortable in them.

    It’s bastards like this that make me sometimes want to do it anyway, just to piss them off…

  57. August 8, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    My 18-month-old daughter is wearing blue jeans today. With big pink hearts on them. They’re so adorable and girly. Except now I realise that they’re “Slovenly, Drab, Unkempt, Slatternly [and] Blowzy”. How foolish of me not to realise that.

    Also, did he just say that women in jeans look like slatterns? Because my mental image of prostitutes does not involve jeans. Still, I imagine he knows better than I…

    I’m reliably informed that Reptoids have tails, and thus skirts or kilts would be far more comfortable in their true form. Surely the logical conclusion is that the international Jewish conspiracy and their feminist allies are defending humanity with their jeans.

    I got a real heated conversation going this week on Skirt Cafe about jeans as the feminist outfit.
    Yes skirts do leave a little to the imagination where pants can show every curve.
    I do think that the right skirt on a women can demand respect from guys.
    But really does the writer want us to go back 300 years in our dress.

    Just a little about me
    Right now I am writing this in my Sarong, has a flame design on it.
    Yesterday I went to Kohl’s had a 15% discount was in a white cord cargo above knee skirt.
    The cashier was the only second glance I saw.

    But, but…he totally forgot cargo shorts! The influence of those multi-pocketed, khaki wonders on gender issues is almost impossible to calculate.

    This is EXACTLY the reason that “lipstick feminism” confuses the hell out of men and women equally. 1st and 2nd wave feminists cry out “See! Our femininity is a tool of power belonging to the elitist majority of the hetersexual etc. etc.”. Men read it and think, those damn dyke lesbians, ruining our five year old memories by wearing frumpy jeans and not frocks.


    I mean, we’re not dumb ladies, we wouldn’t do anything we didn’t want to do, isn’t that what the whole fight was about in the first place. Yes, there are standards, but haven’t we had a hand in creating them. Isn’t removing our agency from that process problematic.

    Maybe if men like this got their heads out of their asses, and the “hard-core radical” feminists started to take “lipstick feminism” serious women would finally be able to be whomever they CHOOSE to be, and be comfortable with it, regardless of their size, shape, or what “brand” of feminism they ascribe to.

    As far as I am concerned, if you are a woman, and you like being a woman, your a feminist. If not, you should see a shrink once or twice a week to work on that.

    Coming to it late, via Ren’s blog–

    For the record, this makes them more gay, but possibly less feminist.

    COMEDY GOLD. Also, my boyfriend thought I looked hot in my too-lose, bleached-to-hell, paint-stained old jeans (before I cut them off in a fit of Chicago humidity–wait, he still thinks they’re hot), but then he wears blue jeans too. I suppose we’re both just confused by the damage our proletarian status has done to our brains.
