Zombified by the Patriarchy!

Zombies are real!

〰 ⚤ 〰

They’re created by neuroparasites, creepy species which infect and control the minds of other creatures, zombifying their victims.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Neuroparasites rewire the host’s brain, and do horrifying things to it, suppressing its natural behaviour, turning it into the walking dead so that it engages in self-destructive activities which allow the parasite to propagate and spread.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Now think of memes.

A meme is a unit of information (beliefs, concepts, or practices) which houses itself in the human brain and then, like a contagion, is passed from person to person.

〰 ⚤ 〰

The Patriarchy behaves like a creepy neuroparasite, using memes to infect and control the minds of its victims

〰 ⚤ 〰

The Patriarchy rewires the human brain, and does horrifying things to it, suppressing our natural behaviour, turning us into the walking dead so that we engage in self-destructive activities which allow the Patriarchy to propagate and spread.

〰 ⚤ 〰

We are trapped in a terrifying existence with a horrific monster which zombifies its victims, wiring our minds into doing what it wants – infecting the Earth with a pathological system of thought.

〰 ⚤ 〰

The Patriarchy – all trick and no treat

Neuroparasites are masters of mind control, wiring their host’s brain to act in self-destructive ways that benefit the parasite, allowing it propagate and spread.


Hmmmmm, now doesn’t that sound just like what the Patriarchy does to the human mind to allow it to propagate, spread, and take over the world…

If you would like to learn more about neuroparasites and how they zombify their victims, here are two excellent articles (one popular and one academic):

Invasion of the Patriarchy!

The Patriarchy is a hierarchical system in which a small Dominant Male Group (DMG) holds power, while all others are excluded and inferiorized.

Society consists of masters and underlings, who are expected to work for the DMG as cheaply as possible, preferably for free.

〰 ⚤ 〰

The DMG are raised to be “superior”, privileged, the ideal template crafted by God.

They are taught to feel entitled to satisfy their every desire regardless of the damage it inflicts on minds, bodies, or souls – including their own.

They are trained to suppress all emotions except anger and hate; to be violent and warlike; to exploit, use and abuse the ‘weak’, including other males in their group.

〰 ⚤ 〰

The DMG are wired to bully, control, hurt, and betray, and to expect sexual conquest along with emotional detachment.

They are not wired for mutual, respectful, or healthy intimacy with anyone, including their own cohort.

Their wiring is toxic – unnatural and pathological, turning them into narcistic and selfish egomaniacs committed to perpetuating the system which favours them.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Underlings consist of women, BIPOC, and minorities. They are seen as “substandard” beings, the Creator’s afterthought, or a curse sent by the Gods.

They are taught to kowtow to the DMG in its every desire regardless of the damage it inflicts on their minds, bodies or souls.

They are trained to be subordinate – docile, submissive, fawning, smiling, non-questioning, and obedient.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Underlings are wired to be good servants ruled by the DMG, caring for its every need, including raising its offspring.

They are not wired for strength, independent thought or action, or healthy intimacy with anyone, including their own cohort.

Their wiring is toxic – unnatural and pathological, turning them into selfless and humble doormats devoted to perpetuating the system for their masters.

〰 ⚤ 〰

The Patriarchy behaves like an alien invader, turning us into creatures which willingly work against our own interests to assist it to propagate and spread.

Welcome to the horror show: Invasion of the Body Snatchers is real!

The Enemy in Your Head

In the Patriarchy, males control the value-system.

〰 ⚤ 〰

“Men define intelligence, men define usefulness, men tell us what is beautiful. Men even tell us what is womanly …

〰 ⚤ 〰

“It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.”

Values: The Most Powerful Form of Mind-Control

PATRIARCHY

A social structure based on the dogma of men’s, usually divinely dictated, sovereignty over the Earth.

〰 ⚤ 〰

A doctrine of male supremacy over all other creatures, which are defined as inferior objects to be controlled and used.

This belief has especial application to human females, who are bridled through behavioural assumptions and principles embedded in familial, social, cultural, religious, political, and economic institutions.

〰 ⚤ 〰

“Male power is most forceful not as an imposition of will but as a determinant of values.”

– Harriet Blodgett

The Patriarchy Makes You Sick

So … how do YOU feel?

〰 ⚤ 〰

If you’re a woman:
In public, you are frightened to walk the streets alone, subject to the trauma of verbal harassment, attempted assault, assault, and rape. In your home, you too often face physical, mental, and emotional abuse.
You will receive inadequate or insensitive care for these ordeals, probably finding yourself blamed for any attacks upon your body, mind, and soul.

〰 ⚤ 〰

You feel exhausted from carrying a far greater workload than males do.
You feel unsatisfied by low pay; frustrated by lack of opportunities; maddened by subtle (and not so subtle) harassment, sexism, and paternalism in all aspects of your working life. Despite earning less, you pay more for life’s necessities (the “pink tax”).

You fear for the future – you have a greater chance of living in poverty, especially if you are old or a single mom.

〰 ⚤ 〰

If you complain of sickness or pain, you are likely to be told it is “all in your head” and to be ignored until your problem becomes life-threatening or kills you.

Pregnancy, birth, and parenting are physically, mentally, and emotionally overwhelming, but heck, “child stuff” is “natural” for a woman, so you’re expected to cope on your own.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Due to discrimination, stressful life experiences, and continuous trauma, you are 40% more likely than men to develop depression, and you’re twice as likely as a male to develop PTSD after a harrowing event. You are made to feel guilty for your behaviour, for the way you are treated, and for wanting more than the limited sphere allotted you by the Patriarchy.

〰 ⚤ 〰

QUESTION: How sick are you of the Patriarchy?

What You Believe, You Become

Multiple studies show that people who feel their health is poor are more likely to die sooner than those who feel their health is good.

〰 ⚤ 〰

This is true even when the researchers controlled for how sick people were, and was independent of the diagnosed illness, symptoms, or level of disability.

〰 ⚤ 〰

CONCLUSION: People who “feel” ill are.
COROLLARY: People who “feel” inferior are.
So … how do YOU feel?

The Essential Religious Double Standard

The essential religious double standard:

〰 ⚤ 〰

Men who preach the womanly virtues – kindness, love, tolerance, peace, faith, and charity – are honoured as Messiahs, Saviors, and Holy Men.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Women who practice them are adjudged as inferior.

Naturally, a Woman Would be Worse!

A male ruler may be demented, syphilitic, paranoid, blood thirsty, perverted, stupid, mentally ill.

〰 ⚤ 〰

He may destroy his country’s economy, gut its currency, stifle rights and freedoms, disappear his opponents, arbitrarily imprison, torture, maim, and kill those around him, invade his neighbours, and slaughter countless young men in pointless wars.

〰 ⚤ 〰

The Patriarchy insists on this:
One dreads to think how much worse it would have been had a woman been in power.

Roasting a Sexist Chestnut

A celibate priest giving advice on love, sex and marriage is like a dog’s walking on his hinder legs.

〰 ⚤ 〰

It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.

〰 ⚤ 〰

There, Boswell, I fixed it!

James Boswell was a friend and biographer of Samuel Johnson, an English writer from the 18th century, who made “lasting contributions” to English literature according to Wikipedia.

In his biography of Johnson, Boswell recorded Johnson saying, ”Sir, a woman’s preaching is like a dog’s walking on his hinder legs. It’s not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.”

Which Will be Quoted: Sexist Chestnut or Sexual Insight?

How often have I had this sexist chestnut quoted at me:

〰 ⚤ 〰

“A woman’s preaching is like a dog’s walking on his hinder legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.”
– Boswell: Life of Samuel Johnson

〰 ⚤ 〰

Fascinating that this one NEVER gets quoted:

“Men know that women are an over-match for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves.”
– Boswell: Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides
