A British feminist says men who dislike 'woke' women are destroying the world

British actor Laurence Fox became a target when he refused to accept allegations about overarching white racism and toxic masculinity in Britain.  He recently earned additional ire from the left when he announced in a Sunday Times article that he does not "date woke women."

Woke woman Vicky Spratt was outraged.  In an article at Refinery29 entitled "The Dangerous Rise of Men Who Won't Date 'Woke' Women,"* she wrote:

Laurence Fox — who you perhaps only knew as Billie Piper's ex-husband because you've never seen Lewis (what?) — does not date "woke" women who he believes are being taught that they are "victims", irrespective of whether they are right or not.

Not wanting to date "woke" women, far from being laughable, is actually one of the more insidious aspects of it. Spend an afternoon on any major dating app and you'll come across (generally white) men saying openly sexist and misogynistic things. They might say "no psychos" or that they "f------ hate big eyebrows" in their bios. And, by and large, they also tend to hold extremely right-wing views and see themselves as victims of liberal thinking.

To Spratt, men who won't date "woke" women are far-right wackos who like Jordan Peterson even though he denies white privilege and urges Millennials to stop being social justice warriors.  Worse, aside from the "incels" (heterosexual men who want a relationship with a woman but can't get one), Spratt says evil anti–woke woman men are becoming right-wing!

The reactionary influence of these ideas doesn't stop at dating, though. As the campaign group Hope Not Hate reported last year, a hostility towards feminism is feeding directly into far-right movements online. They found that a third of young British people today believe that feminism is marginalising or demonising men and warned that these beliefs were a "slip road" to other far-right ideas.

This isn't just speculation. We know that the number of far-right referrals to the British government's deradicalisation scheme Prevent has dramatically increased recently. In the year from 2017/18 they jumped by 36%, while referrals for Islamism actually decreased by 14%.

The sad reality is that many woke women, especially young women, are awful.  Worse, for young men interested in dating, they're scary.  Fail to approach them, and you're a toxic sexist pig.  Approach them the wrong way, and you're a rapist or sexual harasser.  These are women, after all, who have been weaned on the books that Andrew Doyle so exquisitely mines for his satire alter ego, the ultra-woke Titania McGrath:

I'm only in Belfast for a few days, which is just as well because Titania McGrath is writing a new book and the deadline is imminent. There has been a rash of woke children's literature over the past few years, including such classics as Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, C is for Consent and The Little Girl Who Gave Zero F----. Never one to miss out on the latest trend, Titania has decided to write My First Little Book of Intersectional Activism. Younger readers might struggle with some of the jargon, but this doesn't concern Titania. After all, her first words as a baby were 'seize the means of production'.

When women are so scary, men have two options: they can retreat, as Fox says he will, or they can succumb to the harridans' demands and become simpering milquetoasts.  (Think: Prince Harry.)  In a very crude, disturbing, extremely NSFW video, Paul Joseph Watson exposes the second type of men:

One doesn't have to read John Gray's classic Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus: The Classic Guide to Understanding the Opposite Sex to understand that men and women have different needs in normal relationships.  In happy couples, the best dynamic is on in which the woman loves and respects the man and the man adores and respects the woman.  If women are man-hating termagants who make it impossible for men to adore them (even as they respect them) and if men are servile wimps who make any respect impossible, the likelihood of successful relationships in a woke society is slim, indeed.

If feminists really want men to respect women, they might try respecting men first.
