Toxic Femininity

Posted by

The women’s liberation movement has gradually morphed into a man-bashing movement. It has been taken over by lesbians and the transgender folks who hate men. The buzzword is “toxic masculinity”.

Make no mistake. This does not just mean that some men may be excessively aggressive or violent or that masculinity can occasionally turn into annoying or even dangerous aggressiveness. It means that men as a group are inherently more aggressive and more violent than women and therefore a danger to civil society and world peace.

Statistics support this negative view of men. Made physiologically more aggressive than women by high levels of testosterone, men commit most violent crimes, they fight most wars, and they rape and beat women even in a domestic environment. Clearly, men are a menace to humankind and should rightfully be disempowered and maybe even eliminated through genetic engineering.

A 2015 movie “No Men Beyond this Point” shows a world without men. Only females are born. Women fertilize themselves and lesbian sex is much better anyway than binary sex. No crime, no violence, no aggression. World peace is around the corner. A women-only world is the precondition for the survival of humankind because women are genetically peaceful, compassionate, understanding, communicative, and loving. Therefore, once women rule the world, there would be no more violent conflict, no brutality, no crime, no wars.

But is that really so? Are women really significantly less inclined toward aggression, violence, destruction, and brutality than men? Let us look through history and investigate how women behaved as rulers, queens, and heads of state, how they acted when they had the power that was mostly in the hands of men. Let us take a short walk through history.

Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt, 15th century BC

She inherited a very stable empire from her father Thutmose I. She consolidated what she had inherited, and her military activities also aimed at consolidation rather than conquest and expansion. She was also lucky that no major military challengers showed up during her reign. However, much of what she accomplished must probably be credited to her superbly able minister and lover Senenmut. By tradition and religious rule, Pharaohs had to be men. Hatshepsut managed to stay in power by eliminating all potential male competitors. But yes, overall, hers was a reign of peace and prosperity.

Assyrian Queen Shammuramat, 9th century BC

Probably the real “Semiramis”. She is the only known Assyrian queen to have retained her status as queen after the death of her husband and the only known ancient Assyrian woman to have partaken in, and even led, military campaigns. She accompanied her son Adad-nirari on a campaign against Kummuh in Syria and is credited with expanding the borders of the empire mainly through military conquest. This means that she was just as belligerent, aggressive, and violent as male Assyrian rulers.

Isabelle I of Castile, Queen of Spain, 1451 – 1504

She curbed the power of the nobility and was the leading force behind the “Reconquista”, a series of military confrontations that drove the Muslims out of Spain. She established the Inquisition in Andalusia and expelled 170,000 Jews from Spain. Surely, not exactly a peacenik.

Catherine of Medici, Queen of France, 1519-1589

An ambitious and unscrupulous woman, she involved herself in the political intrigues of the court trying to increase royal power and her own influence. Catherine of Medici is blamed for instigating and organizing the horrendous massacre of St. Bartholomew’s night in 1570, during which Catholic mobs and government death squads hunted down thousands of Calvinist Protestants (the Huguenots) killing many of them and causing hundreds of thousands to flee from France to neighboring countries, mainly Germany.

Elizabeth I, Queen of England, 1533 – 1603

Elizabeth’s foreign relations were uneasy. Always pressured to marry to form political alliances, she diplomatically seemed to consider them, but in the end always refused. She greatly increased England’s political reach through many wars and the implementation of imperialism and colonialism. Her greatest success was the defeat of the invading Spanish Armada in 1588 in the waters off England’s west coast. Her greatest failure was the suppression of uprisings in Ireland and the resulting long wars. Yet, her Realpolitik made England into a leading European force.

Victoria, Queen of England, 1819 – 1901

Queen Victoria’s reign was the longest in English history. Called the Victorian age, it was a time when Britain was at the height of its colonial power. Victoria became a symbol of British expansionist foreign policy. She insisted on taking an active part in the decisions of the government, and forcefully backed the ministers she liked. She assumed the title of Empress of India and pressured Prime Minister Disraeli to act against Russia during the Russo-Turkish war. She supported Disraeli’s expansionist foreign policy, which led to several wars, like the Zulu War and the Afghan War. In short, she was as much a power politician as any man in her place could have possibly been.

Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia, 1729-1796

Ambitious and intelligent, Catherine (born Sophie von Anhalt-Zerbst) arrived in Russia from Germany in 1744 to marry the 16-year-old Grand Duke Peter. She orchestrated his death and proclaimed herself sole ruler of Russia. Considering herself a ruler in line with enlightenment, she supported ideas that were considered “progressive” at the time, such as reforms in law, education, and provincial and municipal administration. However, she ruled as a merciless despot who did not tolerate any opposition. She suppressed the Polish nationalists, which led to Poland’s first partition, and she waged war against Turkey, annexing Crimea and parts of the Black Sea coast from Turkey.

Under her leadership, Russia colonized the territories of New Russia along the coasts of the Black and Azov Seas and Russians became the first Europeans to colonize Alaska, establishing Russian America. However, military conscription and the Russian economy depended on serfdom, and the increasing demands of the state and of private landowners for slaves intensified the exploitation of slave labor. This was one of the chief reasons behind numerous rebellions, of Cossacks, of nomads, of peoples of the Volga, and of peasants, which she all subdued brutally.

During her reign, Catherine extended the borders of the Russian Empire by some 520,000 square kilometers (approx. 200,000 sq mi), absorbing New Russia, Crimea, the North Caucasus, right-bank Ukraine, White Russia, Lithuania, and Courland mainly at the expense of the Ottoman Empire and the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Amina, Nigerian Queen, 1560 – 1610

Queen Amina headed the northern Nigerian Hausa city-state of Zaria. She was a tough military leader and brought most of the other Hausa city-states under her rule. She encouraged her cities to surround themselves with huge defensive mud walls. She also opened up trade routes. The main goods of her trade, however, were gold, cola nuts, and black slaves, which she sold to Arab slave markets via the trans-Saharan slave trade.

Mbande Nzinga, Angolan Queen, 1582 – 1663

Queen of the Ndongo kingdom, she pushed back against the Portuguese increasing occupation of what is now known as Angola. Constantly driven east by the Portuguese, Nzinga organized a powerful guerrilla army. She conquered the Matamba, and developed alliances to control the slave routes. She even allied with the Dutch, who helped her stop the Portuguese advancement. Even after having negotiated a peace with the Portuguese, she remained defiant and refused to pay tribute to the Portuguese king.

Tzu-hsi, Empress of China, 1835 – 1908

Although only a low-ranking concubine of the Emperor Hs’en Feng, Tzu-hsi rose in status when she bore him his only son. At Hs’en Feng’s death and her son’s succession, every decree had to be approved by her. Called the Dowager Empress, she exerted herself into state affairs and refused to give up her regency even when her son came of age. In effect, she had all the power of a real ruler. Tzu-hsi’s rule was imperious, corrupt, and tyrannical. She used state funds to build herself a palace and sold posts and promotions. Under her rule, China’s interior structure and military capabilities deteriorated rapidly. In 1890 Japan defeated China and under Tzu-his’s reign the Western powers strongly increased their presence and influence in China.

Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel, 1898 – 1978

In 1969, she was elected Prime Minister, a remarkable accomplishment for an Israeli woman at that time. She was a powerful, tough leader, but her defense policy was criticized after Israel seemed unprepared in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. She was accused of having let her somewhat gullible desire for peace get in the way of a realistic assessment of the situation and of having failed to prepare the Israeli military adequately for a war that seemed both predictable and unavoidable. She retired from active political life when the Labor Party fell from power as a consequence of that war.

Indira Gandhi, Prime Minister of India, 1917 – 1984

When she became Prime Minister of India in 1966, she continued many of her father’s (Jawaharlal Nehru’s) policies, such as pushing for land reform and the nationalization of banks. But India ran into great economic troubles during her watch. There were riots after which she declared Emergency Rule. Political opponents were jailed, and the press was censored. In 1977, she lost her election and even faced charges of corruption. Expelled from Parliament and briefly jailed, she reorganized her party and won re-election as Prime Minister in 1980. In 1984, she met a brutal death at the hands of her own Sikh bodyguards in retaliation for her forceful actions to halt disturbances in a sacred Sikh temple. A violent death after a violent and turbulent life.

Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of England, 1925 – 2013

Thatcher’s first foreign-policy crisis came with the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. She condemned the invasion and gave permission to proceed for Whitehall to approve MI6 and the SAS to undertake disruptive action in Afghanistan, as well as working with the CIA in Operation Cyclone. The SAS also supplied weapons, training, and intelligence to the mujahidin. Having withdrawn formal recognition from the Pol Pot regime in 1979, Thatcher backed the Khmer Rouge allowing them to keep their UN seat after they were ousted from power in Cambodia by the Cambodian–Vietnamese War. Although Thatcher denied it at the time, it was revealed in 1991 that, while not directly training any Khmer Rouge, from 1983 the Special Air Service was sent to secretly train “the armed forces of the Cambodian non-communist resistance” that remained loyal to Prince Norodom Sihanouk and his former prime minister Son Sann in the fight against the Vietnamese-backed puppet regime.

During her first year as prime minister, she supported NATO’s decision to deploy US nuclear cruise and Pershing II missiles in Western Europe. She bought the Trident nuclear missile submarine system from the US to replace the Polaris system, tripling the UK’s nuclear forces. In April 1986, she permitted US F-111s to use Royal Air Force bases for the bombing of Libya in retaliation for the Libyan bombing of a Berlin discothèque. In 1982, the “iron lady” ordered the invasion of the Falkland Islands and won the Falkland war against Argentina. She was the only British Prime Minister to wage a full-fledged war after WWII.

Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, 1954 –

German Chancellor from 2005 – 2021. The “most powerful woman in the world” continued her predecessor Gerhard Schroeder’s policy of making Germany and with it the entire EU, except France, dependent on Russian oil and gas, a policy that would seem to be entirely incompatible with Germany’s continued NATO membership.

She also opened Germany’s borders to Muslim immigrants from Northern Africa. Due to the so-called “Schengen Agreement”, which removes all border controls between its 27 members (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland), North African Muslims, once they had been given access to Germany, were able to freely migrate into all of the other Schengen countries.

Today, non-Muslim women in the Schengen countries have statistically 1/3 (one third) of a child on average, while Muslim women have on average six children. Do the math. The non-Muslim population of Europe is shrinking by about 50-60% with every new generation (approximately every 35 years) while the Muslim population is growing by 200% over the same period.

The net result of Merkel’s policies is that Russia now controls the European economy and that Europe will have a predominantly Muslim population in about 50 years from today. I think it is not exaggerated to state, in the light of these facts, that Frau Merkel was the gravedigger of the European Judeo-Christian civilization.

As these few examples illustrate, women, when given sufficient power, can be just as brutal, violent, destructive, and aggressive as men.

In other words: Femininity can be just as toxic as masculinity.
