Reconciling Feminism & Eurocentrism

Most people who are racially aware and Eurocentric are very much antifeminist, seeing feminism as the weaponizing of women and men against each other, a fundamental threat to the structure of society. Feminists, in turn, tend to be extremely adverse to Eurocentrism, seeing them as racist chauvinist white supremacist bigots, the worst part of the patriarchy. I am both Eurocentric and a radical feminist, so I’d like to briefly explain how I think the subjects are not necessarily antagonistic to each other.

 

To White Feminists

For feminists wondering why the heck anyone would be Eurocentric, I recommend My Awakening by David Duke. The ebook and audiobook are available online.

You know how a lot of feminists are gynocentric, and are concerned only with the welfare of women, because those are “our people”? I’m the same way – I’m concerned with the welfare of my people. But I am concerned with the welfare of my actual people – those who are related to me by blood. That means my immediate family, then my extended family, then my genetic family: the European race. And we are suffering, and we are dying, both in our native Europe and in the diaspora.

If you are European (white/Caucasian/Anglo) and don’t see a problem with Europeans going extinct, I suggest you do some serious personal reflection about whether you have internalized hatred for your own people. Even the most pathologically male-identified woman doesn’t wish to see all women dead.

Many of us have to struggle to accept ourselves as women, because being a woman in this society is often undesirable, when it affects how you feel about yourself, how you can move about in the world, when you are unsafe, and even whether you feel worthy of existing. And yet, we are women, and no amount of male-identifying lets us escape that reality. More than just accepting being women, we have to embrace our identity as women if we are to stand up for ourselves, an identity that people are increasingly attempting to redefine, misappropriate, belittle, and erase. We have to learn we don’t have to apologize for taking up space, having opinions, and defining and defending the interests of the class of people who share our biology, and who are defined by the rest of the world by that biology. We have to learn our own history, because in school we were taught far more about men than we were about women. Women suffer a greatly disproportionate threat of violence. People don’t give us jobs for no other reason than because we’re women. Some people hate us for no other reason than because we’re women. Some men blame women for all the world’s problems, and for all their problems personally. We have to struggle to have and raise children in a society where that is a disadvantage, and to learn we don’t have to apologize for being mothers.  While there are #somegoodmen, as a group men are a disproportionate threat to us, which is why we need safe spaces from them. We are taught to be uncomfortable associating only with other women, and to depend on men. But men cannot be relied on to help us. We have to help ourselves. Men indoctrinated in the patriarchy exploit us for their own benefit, and will continue do so unless we stop them. This is why we as women need to devote major attention to specifically women’s issues, and not feel guilty for refusing to serve men as much as we serve our sisters, and for focusing on fighting for women’s well-being primarily or exclusively.

Many of us have to struggle to accept ourselves as European, because being white in this society is often undesirable, when it affects how you feel about yourself, how you can move about in the world, when you are unsafe, and even whether you feel worthy of existing. And yet, we are European, and no amount of POC-identifying lets us escape that reality. More than just accepting being European, we have to embrace our identity as Europeans if we are to stand up for ourselves, an identity that people are increasingly attempting to redefine, misappropriate, belittle, and erase. We have to learn we don’t have to apologize for taking up space, having opinions, and defining and defending the interests of the class of people who share our biology, and who are defined by the rest of the world by that biology. We have to learn our own history, because in school we were taught about every culture but our own. Europeans suffer a greatly disproportionate threat of violence. People don’t give us jobs for no other reason than because we’re European. Some people hate us for no other reason than because we’re European. Some POCs blame Europeans for all the world’s problems, and for all their problems personally. We have to struggle to have and raise children in a society where that is a disadvantage, and to learn we don’t have to apologize for having children.  While there are #somegoodPOCs, as a group POCs are a disproportionate threat to us, which is why we need safe spaces from them. We are taught to be uncomfortable associating only with other Europeans, and to “need” multiculturalism. But POCs cannot be relied on to help us. We have to help ourselves. POCs exploit us for their own benefit, and will continue to do so unless we stop them. This is why we as Europeans need to devote major attention to specifically European issues, and not feel guilty for refusing to serve POCs as much as we serve our sisters and brothers, and for focusing on fighting for Europeans’ well-being primarily or exclusively.

When I was growing up, I wasn’t aware I was European, except in the most academic sense. I thought of myself as “white,” and had never, ever heard a white person called “European American,” though I had heard the terms “African American,” “Native American,” and “Asian American” hundreds of times. I did not know white people had a culture. I thought everyone else had an ethnicity and rich cultural heritage, except white people. The only things I identified as specifically belonging to me, the only European American child in my classes throughout elementary school, were guilt about slavery, and guilt about immigrating to North America and how the Native Americans were treated.

When I discovered, as an adult, that I am in fact European, as others are Asian or African, and that European culture is my culture, European history is my history, and European heritage is my heritage, it was like arriving at a home I didn’t know I had, and that I’d been mourning the absence of all those years.

White woman, you are European. You are my blood sister. Virtually all classic literature and most modern literature – that is our culture. Art, sculpture, and architecture – that is our culture. All of the languages of Europe – that is our culture. The English language we are using right now is our culture. Classical music, folk music, as well as much modern music, and most musical instruments – that is our culture. Ballroom dancing, ballet, and folk dancing – that is our culture. All of the history of Europe is our culture. Higher mathematics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, biology, paleontology, and the scientific method itself – that is our culture. Modern medicine is our culture, as well as dentistry, herbalism, midwifery, chiropractic, therapeutic massage, and most other forms of healthcare. A distinct lack of plague is our culture. Most domesticated plants and animals are our culture. Virtually every feat of engineering, from castles to skyscrapers – that is our culture. Virtually every invention ever, from the wheel, to plumbing and running water, to the book and the printing press, to electricity, to planes, trains, and automobiles, to the computer and the internet – all of that is our culture. Everything from eyeglasses to pencils to flush toilets is our culture. Putting a man on the moon is our culture. All Western philosophy and ethical thinking, and the concept of virtue – that is our culture.

My sisters, we have to learn to embrace our identity as women, because we are a class of people with our own unique struggles and needs, and we deserve to live and flourish, and we do not have to martyr ourselves for the advancement of men. We have to learn to ignore people who would have us internalize their misogyny. Embrace your identity as European, because we are a class of people with our own unique struggles and needs, and we deserve to live and flourish, and we do not have to martyr ourselves for the advancement of others. Examine your perception of yourself and see if you have internalized hatred for yourself because of your biology. Learn to love yourself, and love our heritage, our people. Be proud of who you are. Then fight for your people. No one else is going to save us. We have to save ourselves.

 

To Racially Aware Europeans

I’d like to talk about Eurocentric people’s objections to feminism. This list sums up the objections I’ve most commonly seen/heard, so I’ll be talking about the points made one by one.

Sex denialism where the existence of many genetically caused sex differences are denied and in particular mental differences. It is a form of genetics denialism with similarities to race denialism, such as the influence of Cultural Marxism and general political correctness.

First of all, just because there are genetic cognitive differences between the races does not automatically mean there are genetic cognitive differences between white men and white women. We are all European, after all, the product of the natural and social environment of Europe. In my opinion the jury is still out about how much, if at all, the differences between men and women are the result of biology, and how much they are the result of gender roles. It’s a difficult question to answer, because gender roles are pervasive, affecting even mothers’ perceptions of the behavior of unborn babies in the womb.

I consider any suggestion that sex differences in non-European races are relevant to us highly questionable, which means cross-cultural comparison is out, and what is primarily left to us to answer the question of nature vs. nurture are modern scientific studies, and our history. For the scientific research on this question, I recommend Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine, which basically concludes that it is extremely difficult to claim that any differences are innate because gender roles are so pervasive. As for history – European beliefs about the natures of men and women have changed tremendously. Reading has until recently been believed to be physically harmful to women, and yet now the stereotype is that women are naturally good at language arts, because women are “verbal” and men are “logical.” Chastity used to be considered a naturally male virtue, like all virtues, whereas now many men view themselves as physically incapable of remaining chaste. As we all read a lot of history, I doubt I have to belabor this point, as many differences between the ancient, medieval, and modern views of men and women are likely springing to mind for anyone Eurocentric.

If it does turn out that there are innate differences between men and women, I will be perfectly fine with that. If it turns out that most people working at Google are men and most pediatricians are women, for example, I would have no problem with that. But gender roles do not help people be who they are and pursue their natural interests. That is why they are roles – they indoctrinate and pressure people into doing and liking what society says is “for men” or “for women,” and punish people who do not conform. I don’t like that. Nor do I think that raising children in very gendered environments is an effective strategy to help them mature into noble European men and women. An environment of virtue, beauty, love, and the richness of our culture and history is what creates virtuous, beautiful, loving, and capable Europeans, not playing with gendered plastic toys and coating everything in pink or blue.

I think this obsession with gender roles is a result of our culture and people being threatened. When we were left more to ourselves, young boys were dressed like this as standard practice, and they of course grew up to be kings and heroes. Many people espouse gender roles that seem to me more a caricature of European men and women, promoted by Hollywood, rather than a natural reflection of what European men and women are truly capable of.

Life becomes a lot easier when you stop believing in this modern concept of “gender” altogether and just acknowledge the reality of biological sex. Then it becomes ridiculous that a piece of cloth without a seam in it could “turn a boy into a girl.” Our ancestors knew this, back when gender was used to describe nothing but grammatical forms in inflected languages.

Demands for not just equal rights (such as voting rights) but for equality generally including equal behaviors and equal presence everywhere in society. It may be argued that this should be enforced through forced measures such as obligatory indoctrination and affirmative action laws. This may possibly cause a wide variety of harmful effects for individuals and societies if females and males due to genetics are different and on average best suited for different behaviors and roles in a society.

I am an anarchist, so I am not in favor of obligatory anything. And without a government, there would certainly be no affirmative action or “equal opportunity” laws. I am perfectly fine with people discriminating against others on the basis of sex in business and in their private lives, as anyone is who is in favor of free association. You have to be in favor of violence and coercion to want people to be forced to associate with people when they don’t want to. I do not want anything forced onto anybody. Part of why I am a feminist is that I also do not want anything forced onto me or other women.

Support for non-family values.

“Family values” is a rather vague term. In my opinion virtue is the foundation of strong European individuals, families, and civilizations, and I do everything I know to do in my life to practice the seven heavenly virtues. However, if what is meant by “family values” is the heterosexual neolocal nuclear conjugal system – then yes, I am not in favor of the conjugal system. This is because, unlike many people who are Eurocentric, I do not want to go back to Christian Europe, or to the Indo-Europeans. I want to go back to Old Europe. My family practices the avuncular system, not the conjugal system. However, I think the avuncular system produces a much better environment to raise children in than the conjugal system does. Creating a society that secures the existence of our people and a future for white children is extremely important to me as well, and I definitely want European families to be able to thrive and be in a position where we feel able to have an abundance of children.

Support for various forms of non-heterosexuality.

I am antisexual. I do not support homosexual, heterosexual, or solo sex. I think that it is not homosexual behavior in and of itself that is a threat to Europeans, but sexual licentiousness, as being against chastity and consequently against virtue, among other problems. Licentiousness is often brought up in criticisms of homosexuality, because same-sex sex is necessarily performed for reasons other than reproduction. But come on. Hetero couples are hardly having sex only for reproduction either. This problem is much bigger than what most Eurocentric people like to focus on.

I also seriously question whether the modern concepts of heterosexuality and homosexuality are accurate ways to describe European sexuality. For more on that, I would recommend Sex Before Sexuality by Kim Phillips and Barry Reay.

Academic ivory tower perspective on issues.

I don’t really know what this means.

Focus on criticizing Whites while in effect often ignoring the much worse situation for women in many non-White groups and countries.

I love my people, and I only want to help us. When I criticize practices, it is in the interest of improving the situation of our people. I am not concerned with what other races do except insofar as it affects my people.

Support for mass immigration to White countries of groups (such as often religious Muslims) with views and goals contrary to those of feminists (such as support for sharia laws). Some immigration problems such [as] over-representation of rapes by immigrants groups from certain areas in particular affects [sic] women.

I am extremely opposed to European governments funding the destruction of their native peoples, by mass immigration, educating children to hate themselves and have no attachment to their culture or people, “multiculturalism” and moral relativism, and other practices. I follow the sufferings of European men and women, both native and diaspora, inflicted by other races with great pain.

Another issue is an argued large Jewish over-representation among influential and more extreme feminists and financial backers.

That is true. There are a ton of Jewish feminists. There are also a ton of European feminists, and I keep all my reading on this subject Eurocentric – meaning I read only books written by, for, and about Europeans. Keep in mind that most racially aware Europeans are National Socialist, and there are tons of Jewish people who are socialist and nationalist. Israel is quite the poster child for a nationalist state.

Another point that was not made on this list but that I often see brought up is that feminists hate men. I certainly do not hate men – that would mean hating half of my family, including my brother. Nor do I think men are naturally monsters or anything like that, as similarly many MRAs, MGTOWs, and Red Pillers seem to hate women and think we’re monsters. I support Men’s Lib as well as radical feminism – I see gender roles as harmful to both men and women, and I think concern for only one or the other gets only half the picture. We are all in this together. The better we can become as individuals, the stronger we will be as a people. I think it is in our best interests for men to be allowed to be nurturing as well as capable, and for women to be allowed to be capable as well as nurturing. Then we can all serve and protect our kith and kin to the best of our abilities.
