Dinesh D’Souza’s backwards future wife on the evils of Women’s Suffrage

Dinesh D’Souza’s future wife?

So good old Dinesh D’Souza — the right-wing culture warrior who hit it big this year with the film 2016: Obama’s America — evidently has a new fiancee. This has caused a big kerfuffle amongst some of D’Souza’s pals on the Christian right, because it turns out that he’s not quite unmarried at the moment, having only just filed for divorce from his current wife of twenty years. Oh, and his new gal pal – 29-year-old Denise Odie Joseph II —  is apparently also married.

Yesterday, D’Souza resigned his lucrative job as president of The King’s College, a small evangelical school in Manhattan (where he was reportedly paid a cool million bucks a year). His explanation for the whole adultery thing?

I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be engaged prior to being divorced, even though in a state of separation and in divorce proceedings.

Yeah, how could a family-values-loving, highly paid president of an evangelical Christian college possibly be expected to know that getting engaged to someone while you’re still married might not go over so well in evangelical circles?

As a result of all the controversy, D’Souza says he and his beloved are “suspending” their engagement.

But enough about Dinesh. Let’s talk about his (possible) future wife. Despite the whole adultery thing, Joseph seems to think of herself as a bit of a crusader for “family  values” against the evil forces of liberalism and feminism.

Indeed, in one blog post earlier this year on Smart Girl Politics, she argued, amongst other things, that women’s suffrage was a terrible mistake. Well, “argued” might be stretching it: the post is a long, barely coherent, free-associational rant laced not only with internalized misogyny but with racism and homophobia to boot. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Beginning with a highly ironic paean to Rick Santorum as the only Republican in the primaries “to acknowledge … that the family unit is the cornerstone of American society,” Joseph then launched into a confusing and confused attack on what she called RINO – that is, Republican In Name Only – men who in her view haven’t been doing enough to keep their wives and daughters in check:

RINO Republicans are analogous to fathers who proudly proclaim their conservativeness at dinner parties or perhaps during early afternoon phone calls to El Rusbo’s show, but let their “independently-minded” wives … pump their teenagers full of birth control and encourage their daughters to live the lives for which their bra-burning foremothers fought so valiantly. …

RINO Dads are those guys who will sheepishly to proudly, fill out Republican ballots on Election Day while their wives openly mark their support for things like, “freedom of choice” and “freedom from poverty.” What most people don’t realize, and indeed what I didn’t realize until I blocked out the “madding crowd,” is that these women and their RINO men are like a vast national living history museum, pictographically illustrating exactly why the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever and in fact, more closely resembles the greatest show on Earth. Think Ringling Bros. …

When our men cannot even remember the principled widespread women’s opposition to women’s suffrage because they never even learned about it in the first place, but can instantly recall which American president freed the slaves without also recalling the importance of his most seminal quote—“A house divided cannot stand,” our society is in trouble.

She quotes anti-suffragette Madeline Dahlgren (1871):

We believe that God has wisely and well adapted each sex to the proper performance of the duties of each. We believe our trusts to be as important and sacred as any that exist.

It is our fathers, brothers, husbands and sons who represent us at the ballot-box. Our fathers and husbands love us. Our sons are what we make them. We are content that they represent us in the corn-field, the battle-field and the ballot-box, and we them in the school-room, at the fireside, and at the cradle; believing our representation, even at the ballot-box, to be thus more full and impartial that it could possibly be were all women allowed to vote.

Evidently, while God doesn’t think women should vote, he has no problem with women writing barely coherent tirades about politics on a blog called Smart Girl Politics.

After a weird digression in which Joseph explains she will no longer shop at J Crew because one of the designers there paints her son’s fingernails pink, Joseph returns to her attack on the RINO dudes. She spices up her argument with some good old fashioned racism:

While RINO dads and men are often heard snickering about feminists around the water cooler, they do not realize that by virtue of being RINOs, they are complying with the same feminist/liberal system of social engineering they sneer at when manifested in more obvious forms like the black single-mother society. Believing themselves to be infinitely superior by virtue of being married and financially supporting their children, they do not realize that they are setting their own sons up to be the “playas” and their daughters up to be the “played.”

If they took a moment to actually listen to the music their children listened to, or a moment to look at the way their children dress, they would realize that they are going the way of black ghetto society. They would realize that by failing to do the job their foremothers cherished, their wives, who don’t even know enough to scoff at Madeline Dahlgren and who should be the proud, moral guardians of their homes, are leading their RINO (and real Republican civilization) to their inevitable demises.

This, for some reason, leads into an extended attack on the singer KeSha and the video for her song “Tik Tok,” after which she returns to the subject of RINO dads.

Apparently though her video father seems capable of amassing enough money to afford his family a comfortable lifestyle and manicured lawn, he is completely powerless against the will of his monstrous teenaged whore child. This video might as well be a Discovery Channel documentary on the behavior of that intriguing species known as the RINO Dad. Thank the Lord no man will ever expect Ke$ha to be the moral guardian of his home, seeing that her father’s generation seems to be the last marrying generation. And who can blame them? With Ke$has or watered-down versions to choose from, what man would want to voluntarily impregnate a woman? …

Perhaps Ke$ha’s father learned along the way that if he beat the hell out of Ke$ha like she deserves and then sent her to a convent, he would become a social pariah and end up in jail.

I guess “beating the hell” out of children is a family value?

After a bit more KeSha-inspired free association, Joseph returns to chronicling the coming apocalypse, and manages to produce this unholy muddle of a sentence:

From extreme vanity sizing to demands that magazine models (anorexic and unattractively thin models notwithstanding) look like the “real” (cuz I guess the rest of us don’t count) size 8 woman, who historically would measure in at a size 16 to 20, modern women of the West are on the apocalyptic “Wild Hunt” for the ideal and are leaving terrific characteristic destruction in its wake.

Then she follows up with this shorter but equally baffling sentence:

 As women spearhead the demise of the ideal, the alternative to hypocrisy, they spearhead the demise of social order as we know it and love it.

Then — perhaps unwisely, in light of her current situation with the still-married Mr. D’Souza — she returns to the importance of traditional family values, once again with a side order of racism:

Henceforth, all of us will be staring down the barrel of life in a hip hop video or government-funded project where no one makes pretenses about “what they be.” Where no one has to succumb to sin because sinning is the status quo and where no one need ridiculously pretend to be faithful because well, we would have wisely outgrown such primitive notions about nuclear families as individual economies. We would have outgrown capitalism itself because government entitlement spending would have to grow ten-fold to accommodate and assist the burgeoning hoards of single-mom children born of the scarred sons of divorce who accidentally inseminated their female sex partners, or couples who themselves participated in that modern American rite of passage we call divorce.

Huh. You mean that “rite of passage” that you and Mr. D’Souza will soon both be intimately familiar with?

After an extended  defense (I guess) of Sarah Palin, she winds up her attack on hypocritical “in name only” Republican dudes:

RINO Dads, the next time you see your daughter bounding (or sauntering) down the stairs in a pair of booty shorts with messages like “juicy” emblazoned on her backside, please stop her, turn her around, and force her to go upstairs and change.  As you march her room-ward, tell her why she can’t dress like this, school her on the consequences of her behavior.  Do it even if you were on your way to your man cave to watch x-rated content featuring teenaged-looking girls dancing around in booty shorts with messages like “juicy” emblazoned on their backsides. Do it for your daughter, yourself, society, the ideal, but most of all, do it because you now remember that hypocrisy has always been our last, best hope.

Apparently so.

I’m merely saying that male sexuality has been, essentially, socially criminalized. It cannot be discussed. It cannot be referred to.

A single blog post on a single website on all the internet is not about men’s boners = socially criminalizing male sexuality.
Seriously, Steele, do you understand the difference between “you shall not acknowledge your sexuality, ever” and “it is not socially appropriate for you to acknowledge your sexuality in public when it is unrelated to the topic of discussion”?

Excuse me – and who might this be? King David “Poofplush” Futrelle? Cliff “Subsidize Women” Pervocracy? Pecunium the Smug?

1. The poster’s name is deniseeliza, so probably not a guy.
2. I demand henceforth that you only refer to me as “Moonzy the Atlantean Vagina”.

However, men who tailor their sexuality toward serving feminists and thus promoting misandry, have lost the right to have said sexuality respected. Feminists often deny Sarah Palin the label – the logic is the same.

Actually it’s not the same – the world is not split into men and feminists. You might say that David/Cliff/Pecunium is not an MRA, and mock him thoroughly if any of them were to identify as such. This would be valid.
Saying “you disagree with my idea of sexuality, therefore yours does not deserve respect” is irrational. A decent reason to say someone’s sexuality does not need respect is if, say, they enjoyed raping children. Which is obviously wrong.

men who tailor their sexuality toward serving feminists and thus promoting misandry, have lost the right to have said sexuality respected.

Nor am I denying a sexuality.

COME ON! YOU’RE NOT EVEN TRYING!

I am saying that the male Boobzers essentially do not have a “male sexuality”, but are men who have adapted a sort of female/feminist sexuality

If someone is a dude, his sexuality falls into the spectrum of male sexuality.

But if used in service of feminist dogma, in practice I would essentially consider it, as said, a synthetic “feminist sexuality” adapted and applied for men and used in service of promoting feminist hatred.

So if two dudes (one feminist, one MRA) like getting pegged, only the non-feminist man’s sexuality counts?

healthy relationships with other females

I would venture to say no.

This thread was supposed to be about my taste in women. Steele totally derailed a promising discussion.

This thread was never about your taste in women. Steele didn’t derail that, he just made us have to repeat it 500 times.
I keep thinking that if I try harder, Steele will, too.

Bodsy, Excuse me? I’m not going to parse hairs upon you, be that as it may. By raising the vile spectre of popcorn, you are merely and obviously engaging in a typical feminist shaming tactic. While I make no judgments regarding the eating or, or not eating of, popcorn, as I have many friends who love popcorn as practiced in terms of actual human activity. I do, however, object to men who use their humanity to align politically with feminists; in the making of popcorn, as a tool, to oppress those who oppose their vile ways. This is what I refer to as a “political mangina” — synthetic, as he incorporates actual food preferences with political ends, to be sure. I demand that David delete every comment on his blog other than those left by me and my new best friend, Otis the Sweaty, who has shown up you churlish feminists and attendant manginas as nothing more than jester’s fools.

Slander and lies and also possibly libel and sedition! The term ‘mangina’ is a male term, as it were, you are politically reparsing it as a feminist tool – a mangina’s mangina, if you will, n-est p’as. Truly vile, if you would be so kind, thank you. However, this is in no sense a meaningless run on sentence, as it were.

No doubt somewhat late, but I saw Steele’s latest evisceration of the English language, and I could not resist:

But if [male sexuality is] used in service of feminist dogma, in practice I would essentially consider it [male sexuality], as [I] said, [to be] a synthetic “feminist sexuality” adapted and applied for [to?] men and used in service of promoting feminist hatred [of men].

FTFY

The additions remove the more obvious errors and infelicities, but the sentence doesn’t make very much sense, even so.

Let us consider it in context!

“Male sexuality” is, in in purified form, I suppose, merely the expression of sexuality by a man.

“Purified” implies there is an impure form.

“Expression of sexuality” actually tiptoes close to a social constuctionist point of view (that gender and sexuality are performed, not essential/innate), but only a [non-feminist] [straight] [cis] [het] man.

But if [male sexuality is] used in service of feminist dogma, in practice I would essentially consider it [male sexuality], as [I] said, [to be] a synthetic “feminist sexuality” adapted and applied for [to?] men and used in service of promoting feminist hatred [of men].

Clause #1: But=contrast; in contrast to the purified expression/form of male sexuality if said male sexuality (pure? impure?) is used in service [pun intentional?] of feminist dogma [to support feminist dogma? which is what?],

Clause #2: in practice I would essentially consider it [male sexuality? pure or impure?]

to be a synthetic “feminist sexuality”

Purified male sexuality is authentic. Presumably there is a feminist sexuality that is authentic, in order for there to be the contrasting synthetic–i.e. manufactured, artificial–feminist sexuality.
This sexuality gets put in quotes, showing Steele’s disdain for the term–his disowning of it. Apparently feminists have made up this fake sexuality for men; I’m not sure if it’s an authentic feminist sexuality that has been adapted (by feminists?) and applied to (badly fitted I’m sure) men–though even that’s unclear with the “for men”). And this sexuality, and the men, presumably are servicing feminist dogma (but not feminists?)? Avoiding pun: these men who are wearing the adapted feminist sexuality in order to serve (prove?) feminist dogma (which is that men are not and need not be patriarchal, controlling, prickholes locked in an eternal struggle for dominance like Khan and Kirk were except now I’m thinking SLASH WOOT!).

So, um, wrenching myself back to the grammatical analysis (*fans self*):

No, I’m not going to respect that manifestation of “male sexuality”.

So impure male sexuality is not really male sexuality (which automatically is respected except by all the feminists who are busy adapting and and applying for to men, no doubt for profit.

So Steele doesn’t respect the sexualities of the men here.

OTOH, I’d hazard a guess that most of the regulars here, on whatever area of the sex and gender spectrum they find themselves, do not respect Steele for many many many reasons.

And, oh, yes, here we are!

You are also a hypocrite. You said Tom Martin was as dead to you; becauese he was a blot on the escutcheon of, “THE MOVEMENT”. That lasted for a couple of weeks, until he said something suitably abusive of women. After that you were snuggling up to him like you wanted to have his babies.

All things being equal, it matters not if I’m a mensch, or a shitbird; in the flesh (becaus this, my dear boy, is real life; it’s just a slice of it with very narrow bandwidth). What I am here, is a member of the community. I happen to be one in fairly decent standing (though there have been moments when I have been in less than pleasant odor).

You, are a moderately amusing diversion. For all your verbiage the most useful contribution you made to this community was Anti-manboobz. That gave some people a chance to be creative.

That, sad to say, is the only real merit I’ve managed to see in you; other people manage to get to be creative mocking you. It’s sad, but that’s what it is. You aren’t as loathesome as some (unlike, Nugganu, for example, you’ve not [to the best of my knowledge, sent wished that Dave be raped; though you have called him, “innocent”, in your whinging that you had every reason to be terrified for your safety; never mind that you weren’t smart enough to proxy your IP, which is how Torvus Butthorn was revealed to be you).

You lack the meanest measure of the courage of your convictions. You are a hollow man, pretending to be tough, while spending your time railing against people who have the audacity to hold to opinions contrary to yours.

This was not in reference to that; I think we’ve all reached an impasse. It was a general response to Pecunium’s general animus, which I have quid pro quo let slide until now.

But to open the can of worms once again – it’s not about “authenticity” per se. It’s about using a potent force, and a natural force (that is, male sexuality) for nefarious purposes. I’ll rephrase – I do respect all male sexuality. However, I am under no obligation to respect all of its possible applications. I do not respect the use of a gun to murder, though I bear no ill will toward the metal instrument itself. Kapiche?

Sorry, Steele, but your argument still doesn’t work.

There’s just no way to tell what’s intrinsic to the person and what’s the product of outside forces when you don’t know them on a personal level at all. Given that, most people err on the side of assuming that what people say about themselves (in this case what they’re saying their sexual preferences are) is true, and truly what they prefer. Assuming that they’re either lying or deluded is disrespecting both them and their sexuality.
