The Apocalypse of the Other Jim: How Lorde and Lena Dunham are destroying Western Civilization, allegedly

Lorde: Harbinger of doom?

Lorde: Harbinger of doom?

So over on The Spearhead, the fellas are discussing pop star and self-professed feminist Lorde — no, really — and, well, I have some bad news for you all. Apparently we’re about to be taken over by Barbarian tribes. No, really — again. Blame Lorde, Lena Dunham, Lady Gaga, and of course Sex & the City. Among others.

According to a comment-cum-manifesto from The Other Jim, which won itself a couple of dozen upvotes from The Spearhead’s highly civilized readers, Lorde’s feminism

is merely symptomatic of the fact that we live in what can only be called, ‘The Fem-Centric Reality” … Where the culture of the West caters to female desires. Thus, it’s why we see movies, tv, books, music, etc. targeting women(with the govt. legally and economically empowering women eg Title IX, Lilly Ledbetter, etc.), but more importantly appealing to their innermost desires.

It’s why we’ve seen the popularity of such things like ‘Sex & the City’, ’50 Shades of Grey’, ‘Rom-Com’ movies and shows, ‘Girls’, ‘Dancing With the Stars’, ‘The Bachelor/ette’, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, ‘Grrll-Power’ Heroines like Jennifer Lawrence in the ‘Hunger Games’, ABC News, the ‘War on Women’, etc. All of it catering to the fleeting whims and desires of women. Thus, we all live in ‘Chick-World’. *

So, the ‘Fem-Centric Reality’ is the dominant cultural force in the West right now. Of course, it won’t last, nothing ever does, but the price it will exact from Western Civilization will likely help in usher in a cultural, if not civilizational collapse as the Barbarian tribes surrounding the West see the weakness the Fem-Centric Reality engenders and are patiently waiting to take over a weaker civilization.

So there’s that.

Jim ends with this, well, intriguing theory about trans women:

* It’s also why we’re seeing more MTF transsexuals in the public eye, IMO due to a form of Stockholm Syndrome whereby some men aren’t merely sympathizing with the hostage takers(women & the FemCentric Reality), they’re trying to become the hostage takers(women) and be at the center of the FemCentric Reality where the benefits are quite generous.

Fellas: just make sure to get your transition in before the barbarians take over, if you want to enjoy the lady benefits while you still can!

  1. I always remember “What caused the fall of Rome?” to be a trick question. The long answer of which has implications for the modern US and very little to do with barbarians.

    “Collapsed under its own imperialist weight” usually does fine for me.

  2. I’m hearing “What caused the fall of Rome?” in John Cleese’s voice.

    Can’t imagine why.

  3. And, of course, the creation of the latifundia (huge landed estates), owned by patricians and worked by slaves. The sturdy Italic peasantry that had formed the bulk of the legions since the days of the Republic were driven off the land and became an underemployed urban proletariat. Hence the need for bread and circuses, as well as staffing the legions with imperfectly Romanized barbarians. Then came Christianity to complete the vitiation of the Roman virtues (defined by Will Cuppy as pietas, gravitas, and adultery).

    Or we can say it was the queers. Right?

  4. NOOOOOOOO you’ll have LBT posting stuff about the g0ys and how Anal Sex Destroyed Rome!

    Anyone heard from LBT, btw? It’s a few days since they posted.

  5. Kitteh — he just moved to Ohio, I can poke him if you want, but I’m assuming I’d have heard if things were shitty, even if it was just Sneak saying they’d be back eventually.

    Pietas, gravitas and adultery, love it!

  6. I knew he’d moved, and came down with the flu very nastily just after that. Hope this is just a rest time after all that!

  7. Argenti:

    Do you know what part of Ohio? I personally grew up in the Southwestern part of Ohio. Not a bad place if you ask me. Everyone else always complained about it being too boring. I didn’t mind it being a quiet place.

  8. @AIT: BTW, if you’re from Southwest OH, have you ever had Cincinnati-style chili? I’ve been wanting to try some for a while…..=)
