Diagnose this Disease

You, being a normal human being, probably don't expose yourself to lunatics too often. I do because, well, we seem to have quite a few in this country and it's good to get a littel heads up on who the Bush Administration will pander to next. Here's one who attempts to explain Why women's rights are wrong

    ..."The lesson, as always: Women ruin everything."...
    Now, at this point, it is customary for women to immediately reject any assertion that women's rights are wrong as the Talibanistic ranting of an embittered man who has been denied ready access to attractive women's bodies. In the interest of dismissing this red herring, I merely note that few men fortunate enough to possess a turbo Porsche and a record contract at 23 have any reason to be bitter about the hand that life has dealt them.
    In fact, I very much like women and wish them well, which is precisely why I consider women's rights to be a disease that should be eradicated.

That's the kind of sick that goes well beyond can't get a date, and well into, "They're evil vessels of contamination who must be purged!". Freud would have turned him down as too much of a stereotype. A cigar may sometimes be a just a cigar, but a turbo Porsche is always a penis substitute. He tries to seem reasonable:

    The women of America would do well to consider whether their much-cherished gains of the right to vote, work, murder and freely fornicate are worth destroying marriage, children, civilized Western society and little girls. They can at least console themselves with the thought that, in the long run, it doesn't matter what they do, because the women's-rights ideology is an evolutionary dead end, and it is increasingly apparent that societies embracing it will not survive.

But it's just not all that hard to see someone who writes this crap with a cop's hand on the back of his head, the cop making sure our little ubermensh doesn't bonk his noggin on the roof of the squad car taking him off to jail after a statewide manhunt. But wait!

    Vox Day is a novelist and Christian libertarian. He is a member of the SFWA, Mensa and the Southern Baptist church, and has been down with Madden since 1992. Visit his Web log, Vox Popoli, for daily commentary and responses to reader email.

With deep apalogies to my friends in SFWA and Mensa, the alignment of his avocations and vocations is just too perfect. He's probably certain that he should be first in line to breed
