Feminism is the assertion that men are evil and naturally want to harm women, followed by pleas to men to solve all of women’s problems.— Dalrock’s Law of Feminism

This summer Melinda Gates launched a campaign called Equality Can’t Wait.  The goal was to use humor to solve the problem of inequality in STEM.  Quartz at Work explains in Melinda Gates wants comedians to make fun of gender inequality:

…Gates’ campaign has a chance of helping to speed up change, not least because it puts another nail in the coffin of a worn-out stereotype: That women aren’t funny, and that bringing up inequality somehow shows them up as humorless. Female comedians have stormed the US market in the past few years, including Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Nicole Byer, Tina Fey, and Maya Rudolph (some of whom appear in the video.)

The series is even more dismal than I would have imagined. Here is but one example of the campaign, five minutes of male and female feminist scolding dressed up as a comedy routine.

Before you laugh at how pathetic this attempt is (and it is truly pathetic), remember that feminists like Gates don’t need to be clever. Feminists are in such a strong position that no matter how bad their campaign, only the radical fringe will dare to criticize it. Moreover, nagging doesn’t have to be funny, or inspiring, it just has to be persistent.

Culture bound is culture blind

This is from Tim Blair which he puts under the heading, It all makes perfect sense.

The UN recently decided that Israel was the number one violator of women’s rights in the world today. And then the UN appointed the Islamic Republic of Iran to the executive board of the UN’s Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.

I, of course, understand Tim’s point perfectly well. The West set up the United Nations in the 1940s under the assumption it set the standard for the rest of the world. But there were a large number of cultural assumptions built into the creation of that organisation which have been unravelling for quite some time.

Being culture bound is an unfortunate circumstance, although inevitable. The reality is that while we in the West think one way, other people think quite a different way entirely.

At the very minimum we should understand that people from different cultures do not share Western values, nor do they seek to emulate our way of life. They would like the goods and services our economies invent and produce in great abundance, and their political and social elites have more wealth than we can even begin to imagine. But they also have their own values, and these are enduring. Their societies will not become like our societies, not ever.

The Republic of Iran has, without any doubt, strong views on gender equity and the empowerment of women. They just don’t happen to be the same as ours. Why should that difference of opinion exclude their being a member of the Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women in the one-nation-one-vote structure of the ironically named United Nations?
