Has feminism jumped the shark?

In the much loved and long-running television series Happy Days, when the Fonz literally jumped a shark that a whole new trope was born. It’s a reminder that even the best social movement, let alone TV show, reaches a critical point where they cross over from social relevance to logical absurdity.

Just take for instance the mother who thinks that the children’s classic Sleeping Beauty contains an “inappropriate sexual message” because the prince did not seek consent for the kiss. Or then there’s the exampleof Natasha Devon, a former government health advisor, who told teachers in the UK, “never walk into a room in an all girl’s school and say girls or ladies” because it’s “patronising”.

    feminism has jumped the shark however the fatal blow to our civilization has been done in destroying marriage and sowing so much hatred between the sexes that breeding and having children is now the oddity not the norm.our birthrate is well below replacement and vote whoring politicians are simply importing the worst possible candidates to swell the numbers as they too feel our civilization must end.what will grow in its place is as far from a functioning democracy as you can get, it may tip to fascism as the far left struggles to control a population unwilling to see their leadership genius and the loving way they take over all decision making.

      It “may” tip to fascism? Jesus H. Christ, it’s already here! I did up-vote you, by the way, for your generally perspicacious post – however, we are at this very moment fighting fascism, and you should be aware of this.

        Fascism by the overprivileged and protected classes is rampant.

    The Sleeping Beauty example is interesting. Does the Prince know the risk of kissing and thus waking the Princess? Will he rue his decision if she’s an SJW nag?

    Would SJWs be angry if the Prince decided to let her sleep forever in order to enjoy his peace and quiet?

      A prince once asked a princess to marry him. She said no and he lived happily ever after.

      In general, nobody who receives CPR has given prior permission for the rescuer to touch them. Thus, the prince who revives sleeping beauty is likewise probably exempt from prosecution on the grounds that he was a ‘Good Samaritan’ attempting to revive the princess. According to the fairy tale, he didn’t even seek to loosen any tight clothing on the victim that is recommended before undertaking CPR.

        The law in Canada is that if they are concious they can give consent or deny it. If they go unconcious then even if they previously refused help, your covered as a good samaritan.

        This came about from a case were a black women was choking and refused help from a fellow patron of the eatery, because he was white and male. After she went unconcious he cleared her airway and performed CPR

        She tried to sue him and while the judge tossed it, the politicos changed the law to cover that situation.

        I remember that from one of my 1st aid classes over the years.

          He should have let her choke away then.

            It was the best form of revenge – forcing someone to realise they’re only alive because of the actions of a person from a racial group they despise.

      What if the prince was a gay half black half Latino short tranny crossdresser?

    I’d say it has jumped the shark and big time. I doubt anyone dreamed what kind of monster it would mutate into, but here we are. I almost swear that it is becoming an eldritch horror, something where its mere existence challenges the very laws of reality and sanity.

      Using the “cultural revolution” in China as an example we are no where near peak crazy.

      All fear Cthulhu and tremble at his approach! See as Cthulhu himself trembles at the insanity of the SJWs and the brain-searing madness that surrounds them!

    Most of this is because we entertain ourselves pointing this silliness out. If truth be told most of these people are desperate for attention and it becomes an arms race of stupid to see who can snatch their tweet of the day.
