One Russian feminist explains her problem with the feminism

Happy Halloween everyone! Like today is actually the 31s and we reached, finally, the destination.

On this particularly scary, but otherwise, lovely day (it was nice and sunny in the UK), I would like to come back to the term I introduced in my last post on feminism (In response to some latest feminist bullshit)


To try to define it in some kind of academic way, I would probably describe it as a ‘movement which fakes spirituality and feminism in order to make women who still care about the way they look, feel guilty about themselves’.  The word ‘chatte’ comes from French and means pussy, and humbly enough, I do think that it is an appropriate description of what is currently happening within the feminist movement.

In other words, it is feminism turning upon itself. As I explain it in my video I made today (WATCH ME TALKING!), on this beautiful Halloween day, there are currently 3 waves of feminism. I will spare you from the ordeal of going into the details and trying to describe each wave, as it is actually much easier to get a fork, put some spaghetti on it and roll it up.

This is what I was, as a matter of fact, trying to do in my video of today but it didn’t show because of the angle of my camera. And I will make a video as to why I hold my camera in this way (together with my students), because it is fucking a MOBILE PHONE, not a proper camera! So, I hold it the way it is supposed to be held, ok????

But back to feminism. While the researchers are still debating on the precise definition of each wave and what they mean (they, like, quite, obviously, don’t get it themselves), there is already a fourth wave in the making, which is perhaps, like, really, would fit into my anti-chatte definition perfectly well.

So, if I borrow one of the descriptions of this wave from Wikipedia (guilty as charged), it says that the fourth wave is: “Besides online feminism, the fourth wave has been associated with the increased focus on intersectionality, including the repudiation of trans-exclusionary radical feminism and a focus on solidarity with other social justice movements.”

WHAT???? Excuse me, I am an academic myself but when I see texts like that, I kind of get as to what might be wrong within some research in academia today, and why no one reads the treatises of academics apart from academics themselves.

I do get the combination of ‘radical feminism’ though and I just want to scream ‘NO’!!!! Enough of this shit, all right? Why not to go nice and easy back to the first wave and start things anew?

You see, I do still consider myself as a feminist (first wave) but I totally disagree with the latest attempt to take femininity out of women and ask men to slam doors into our faces. Personally, I do want to remain feminine and I think that we should re-introduce some chivalry in men, because otherwise, we will soon all march like robots, without recognising who is a man and who is woman, and then it won’t be just scary Halloween, but some kind of Nightmare from the Battle of Sexes. And I don’t want to end up there.
I rather stay where I am now, on this already scary Halloween day

Why I hate Halloween (and not for obvious reasons)

Happy Halloween everyone

Now, with some good wishes over, I will go straight to the point. Like my letter to the government of the UK I had to compose yesterday evening, and since, well, I don’t know where exactly to address the government on Saturday evening, I simply put it on Facebook. So, here it is, with some corrections and embellishment (thank you my friends on Facebook). THE LETTER:

Dear the UK government and especially, the department of 'education'.
I find it as my personal due to bring your attention to the following (especially that I am kind of, having an 'angry' evening):
Instead of aiming your absolute stupidity (pardon me, for saying the truth) at the 4-5-6 years old and ruining their childhoods, because they have to know the table of multiplication by the age of 6, learn the difference between noun and adjective, and how to structure their sentences at 6!!!!!!!!!, You should probably re-aim your attention at the adult population of THE country.
Like, for instance, starting with history. If I were you, instead of sending the immigrants to that absolutely hilarious test 'Life in the UK' (and I passed it with great honors, just out of curiosity, and now, with some reflection on my part, I realise that I
 rather keep my European  citizenship after the Brexit, and travel to Europe in style, instead of queuing for a visa, which I have done for the majority of my own adult life), you should ask the 'natives' to do that test.
Then, they would know that Halloween doesn't start till the 31s and that it is actually a great pagan celebration, and that Halloween is not the same as the fucking Bonfire night (which I am already dreading), but this year it started even one and half weeks earlier because people, like, quite, obviously, don't have a fucking clue. And I am aware that it is also the great Diwali celebration (starting today), but, being a good neighbour, I know for a fact that two houses in front, and three houses behind my garden don’t have any Indian population living in them. You are welcome to visit to check.
Send them back to school (the ‘native’ British population), that's my opinion (and it would help, under the current circumstances, like following that Brexit debacle, to know what the BONFIRE night stands for).
I am writing all this, because I have a ruined evening. You see, I hoped to put my son to bed at a reasonable time (like 20, 8pm), so that he is rested and ready for the next tortuous period he will face at school, starting next week (learning times 4 or 5, or whatever, but it doesn't matter, because boys at his age, are simply NOT ready), but of course, the morons of neighbours (like, quite a few of them) are celebrating the BONFIRE night, with sending fireworks NON stop for already more than an hour. And as I remember from last year and the year before and so on, it will go on well into the night, for the whole bloody week, and well after, because then, it is fucking CHRISTMAS.
My son is, obviously, scared, he can't sleep, and shouts for some cuddles every two minutes, which is fine, provided that I also have some time off for myself, later. Like drinking some wine and listening to relaxing music to rewind my brain, get some sleep (which, obviously, won't happen now), and be a good mum in the morning, so that I can help him to face the school on Monday. My son goes to an excellent school, I have to admit, and they do what they can to make it nice and cheerful, but it is hard even for them, because you ask the 6 years old to sit for the SATs at the end of this year.
But of course, I won't have this opportunity now (wine, relaxation, and good sleep), because your government's attention is on useless things, while, (that if I were you,) I would start with addressing the problems inside the country (and not outside) and start with educating the British population (the adult part) on what it means to be a good neighbour and why the NHS is facing an increase in mental health disorders.

In response to some latest feminist bullshit

Let me start by saying loud and clear that I am a feminist. I provide for myself, think that women should be treated as equally as men, and try themselves in any jobs they want.
However, as I noticed lately, to my greatest chagrin, I became quite confused about what being a feminist actually means. Sometimes, I even suspect that one needs first to become a total moron, in order to win the right to be called a feminist.
I will try to explain.
Let’s ignore all that menstruation protests (in order to pay less for tampons), campaigns for not shaving the legs, and anti-wax movements, and just present the latest example of the feminist bullshit of lately.
The new song by Pussy Riot, called the Vagina or something like that (you can watch it here Latest Idiotism by Pussy Riot).
In my opinion, this video clip shows quite clearly what has become wrong with feminism and being associated with the movement (and I have to reiterate now, that I do consider myself as a feminist, but apparently I am being stuck somewhere in the 70ies from what I can see).
Pussy Riot (just to update you on their background) is that Russian group which became famous by storming a Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow (some tips on how to become famous can be found here Pussy Riot storming the church). Personally, I don’t mind their opinion on the Russian politics, etc, but I do mind as to how they present women, and since they are, well, Russians, I find it as my personal duty to tell you the following: Russian women don’t go to the toilette like that, don’t dress like that, and I don’t want to know the shop which sells the kind of lingerie they are wearing in their latest video.
Their music clip, however, does reflect a quite disturbing latest trend in the feminist movement. That in case you do shave your legs, take care of your appearance, and (god forbid it) wear some make-up and like clothes and creams, then you are not a feminist.
If you do still want to belong to the movement, you need to wear something like that:

That’s me in the picture, and no, I wouldn’t wear a hat like that, unless I am accompanying my son to a Halloween party.
I do like clothes, creams, shaving my legs, and taking care of my appearance. And don’t tell me, I am not a feminist.
So, in the next post I will try to come up with a new term for this new trend, as I think that we should dissociate, like quite urgently, feminism from anti-femininity, which I decided to name ‘The anti-chatte movement’.  ‘CHATTE’ comes from French and means Pussy.
Watch my latest video where I cut my ponytail and explain what I think of the video by Pussy Riot (MY VIDEO)

‘Party like a Russian’? Let’s have a good look at the Americans

As some of you know Robbie Williams (a British singer- just explaining to those who don’t know who he is) released his single ‘Party like a Russian’ around 3 weeks ago. You can find it here Robbie Williams's video

Personally, I don’t know who parties like that, but Robbie is singing about the OLIGARCHS, and while I don’t know any Oligarch personally myself, I definitely have an opinion on them, the big fucking morons who reaped the nation off, that’s what they are.

I made my own video, explaining my feelings on what Robbie Williams did wrong in his music clip (watch it here My video), going into the details about how to eat a certain product shown in Robbie Williams's song (buckwheat). To cut it short (since I decided to hide the video), you first cook buckwheat, you don't serve it raw (#PR team of Robbie Williams having skipped a lecture on Russia).
But let me tell you rather something new, which is that while everyone is going on about the Russians and oligarchs and how Putin tries to control the whole world, we kind of missed that meanwhile the United States of America became an oligarchy itself, much more fucked up than Russia ever was (and I am not the one who named it as such).

For instance, in the upcoming elections people of the United States of America have a following choice:

1.      Vote for a women’s harasser (Trump), but, otherwise, a very charming man.

2.      Vote for a suspected criminal who supported much more than a women’s harasser (a total hypocrite) and will move him into the White house in case she wins (Clinton).

Which gives us:

But let’s move back to the individual components of the American candidates.

Trump is not that good, for obvious reasons. If he would stop some hate speech he managed to produce, personally I would be all right with that ‘groping’ scandal. Well, kind of, provided that I wouldn’t meet him personally, that’s it. In all honesty, I don’t even get what people are going on about. And don’t throw back at me all that feminist stuff, as I stopped believing in it. Well, in the fourth wave, I am still a feminist, sort of. 
But let's abandon all that feminist talk, and reveal something much more interesting about Clinton. If you ask my humble opinion, she just incorporates everything which shows what has gone wrong with feminism. I am not going to discuss her personally, but her character does prompt me to go the bathroom and puke.

Let’s all remember what she and her husband did to that young intern, Monica Lewinsky. It, of course, started with her husband who was stumbling for quite a while (like fucking ages) to admit that he did have an affair with that poor young woman. I think that we should all remember it, like right now, and put Monica Lewinsky on a stage, applaud her, give her flowers and publicly all apologise for what was done to her and how she was treated. Because I don’t need to be a genius (even if secretly, I might be one…mmm) to conclude that she was a VICTIM in that very unpleasant situation.

Now, if you do try that feminist stuff on me, what I would do, if I were a wife of Bill Clinton, I would throw him out of the house and PUBLICLY condemn.

Hilary Clinton though did nothing of that, just the opposite. She stood up with her husband, gave all kinds of silly excuses for his behaviour, and also made sure that Monica Lewinsky would have a miserable life. It is only recently that Monica started to come out of the shadow, and I do hope that she is happy. She deserves it, the Clintons first need to make a public apology.

So, do you want that couple to move back into the White House?

I DON’T. Because I am a feminist and I didn’t forget what happened to Monica Lewinsky. So, if I were you (an American citizen), I would either not vote, or vote for Trump, even if he does seem slightly confused. 
This post is getting way too long. So, I will just make a small summary as to why Hilary Clinton is a suspected criminal and should never run any country. She messed up with that mails big time, and she doesn't like Russia.
