“Calling Your Daughter A Princess Is Sexist Now”
Whereas, say, preparing her to terminate an unwanted pregnancy — the punishment that no woman should ever have to face, whether or not her complicity in the condition was entirely consensual — is the height of empowerment. Daily Caller:
Have you ever called your daughter “princess” or, if you are a daughter, have you been called “princess” by anyone? If so, you are sexist scum.
Franzoi and Oswald reported their findings in an article called “Experiencing Sexism and Young Women’s Body Esteem.” The obscure 2012 article and underlying research are finally seeing the light of day thanks to a website called Medium.
For their study, the two professors surveyed 86 female freshmen and their parents. They asked the research subjects to evaluate their own views concerning various female attributes and roles. Additionally, they asked the students assess their own personal appearance — weight, physical fitness, sexual attractiveness and the like.
The professors became deeply concerned, according to Medium, when they discovered that the women who held themselves in higher esteem tended to have fathers who practiced “benevolent sexism.”
What is benevolent sexism? It’s hard to define, Franzoi and Oswald say, but they swear they know it when they see it. One example, the professors said, is when a father provides economic support for his daughter “because she is his ‘special little princess.’”
Other problems the professors identify include encouraging daughters to wear cosmetics, chivalrously holding doors open or making little girls feel “special” in any way.
The problem with such treatment, they claim, is that it somehow suggests to females that they cannot provide full financial support for themselves. Females also can’t have high esteem in the absence of such treatment.
Or, to put this obfuscatory academic argot into plain English, “females are too stupid to be able to separate out compliments and the love from a family member from he harsh realities of the real world, which is why these liberal male professors have worked so hard to save the poor dearies.”
A reminder: university “education” costs an absolute boatload, and this is the kind of thing those hired to demagogue at universities routinely teach. Leading to women — who now make up the bulk of university enrollees — taking on enormous student loan debt, which leaves them in need of economic support from family (which typically isn’t just Daddy, but Mommy, too. For which Mommy can be forgiven, as she — by virtue of marriage — is also the victim of sexism and patriarchal control). Which is, of course, sexist.
Therefore: we can conclude that liberal professors, by engaging women in classes that cost way too much and leave these women students in horrific debt, foster the conditions for sexism. Because without the financial burden of this kind of education, Daddy’s li’l princess — not Mommy’s, because that’s just false consciousness — might not need financial help.
Too, women are incapable of establishing any kind of esteem — pride in their own accomplishments — without having first been treated “special” by doting parents. Because, well, they’re very weak-minded, are these dainty little flowers.
Thankfully, though, some liberal male psychology professors have the fix for what ails them — namely, the fact of their being female.
– Which, whew! Crisis averted!
