I’d like to think I have a strong stomach. I’m not freaked out by dead bodies, blood or disembodiment –in fact, “Blood Sucking Freaks” and “The Exorcist,” two horror films people tend to find too gory to keep their lunch down, are among my top favorite films. Sure, the occasional demobilizing slice of the Achilles tendon does make me cringe but, overall, I’m not entirely put off by what others think is gross. So when I came across the blog, Boycott American Women, which is dedicated to listing all the reasons why “American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women),” I put my assertion about my stomach to the ultimate test.
It seems there’s no identity attached to the site, which made Feministe’s Next Top Troll Season 7: the But, Wait, Have You Thought About The Men? roundyesterday, but whoever it is has a clear mission–one insanely strewn with sexism and hate:
I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?
American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.
This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
Unfortunately, Boycott American Women isn’t the only site of its kind (a quick Google search of “American women vs foregin women” will show you that) but it is misogyny at its absolute worse. All of the 21 BAW posts, which only go back to December 2010, are authored by different American men (and I use that term loosely) who find “fault” with their female counterparts. Often, it seems these faults are based on archaic and oppressive ideas of how women shouldact, should feel, and should look like. In fact, there’s a clear outline of the three reasons “American women are no damn good anymore”: BBW farm animal obesity; credit card blowout green; and Feminist anger and psychosis. The viewpoints of American and foreign women are atrocious, repulsive, and despotic. It’s wholly disheartening to know there are men who are beholden to the beliefs we have fought against for decades, and who are opponents of progress. How do they treat their mothers and daughters? What are they teaching them? What is the purpose of all this?
Like I said, I don’t know who is behind this “enlightened” blog but whoever he is, he needs to time warp into 2010.
