Emma Watson and Author Valerie Hudson Discuss "Sex and World Peace"

Well, well. This vies for the mantle of most cringe interview ever. Strap in for a wild ride.

Teen Vogue, the aptly chosen repository of knowledge. As with Greta Thunberg - appeal to female teen sensibility as the world standard is a cunning and malicious choice. The world could be a wonderful place. If only we abdicated the earth to them.

Emma Watson - EW
Valerie Hudson - VH

VH: When I went to graduate school in international affairs, you could have taken my entire coursework and never known there were women on Earth. It was that woman-less.… The idea that national security could have something to do with women would have seemed ludicrous, absolutely ludicrous.

It is ludicrous. History will not judge the present era kindly.

"the largest risk for poverty in old age is determined by whether or not one has ever given birth to a child."

This book quote is designed to inflame feminist sensibility. Simply, one can horde resources - like Emma Watson - or one can devote them to a child. Nothing burger.

EW: When you hear that if women’s caring labor were valued even at minimum wage, it would account for 40% of world production, it’s hard to hear that and remain unmoved.

It already is valued. By that outmoded thing called marriage. Assets and income are split.

VH: Is capitalism itself predicated on all of the life-giving/caregiving work being completely unpaid, being on the backs of women? And if it is, what does that say about the sustainability of capitalism?

A push for single mother socialism. World peace indeed.

EW: words are rated higher coming from men. It’s likely why Harry Potter is not known to be written by Joanne Rowling.

Yes. J K Rowling chose her own pen name, presumably.

EW: If promoting their own success is a helpful strategy for men, but women highlighting their accomplishments is a turn off, how do we get to a more level playing field?

No matter what social meddling is done, it will remain a turn off.

VH: neuroscience that suggested that women's voices may be processed by men in the same area of the brain that processes background music and noise

I heard something.

VH: We have difficulty even accepting women’s expertise and authority...she may actually be the one with the most expertise in the room, but she’ll be processed by those around her, including women, as having half that.


VH: I challenge my male students. I say, "When a woman is speaking at a table where you are and people are ignoring her, there are things that you can do to bring attention to what she’s saying, and retrain our brains to listen to women."


VH: I think that’s one of the reasons why the #MeToo movement has given me such hope.... Women were not heard when they said these things before, and now there’s a decent chance they will be.

Moron. Equates listening to having to put up with hysterical screeching.

VH: men don’t pay attention until the big guys are taken down

Ahem, its women she is talking about - only caring about the apex.

EW: since #MeToo, a lot of men are telling me that they won’t even take meetings with women on their own, that they have to have somebody else in the room, or that this is going to hurt the women’s movement because men will just be so much less likely to want to work with them.


VH: unless women are content to live by male rules, we won’t treat them like human beings...I think that’s outrageous.

Of course you do, dear. Run along now.

EW: I love that you say "silence is the sturdy ally of gendered microaggression."

Let's talk about every little thing, and then be outraged when men don't listen.

VH: The reason that the #MeToo movement exploded on the world stage was that you had millions of women, tens of millions of women, who had experienced a reality that they literally could not speak about.

I'm really a whore, I tried to keep it a secret, but now I can blame someone else. Yippee.

VH: silence is exactly the carpet under which we shove all of these nasty little things, and there can’t be any change when that happens.

The feminist revolution will not be televised. It will be a microchip implanted in your head, endlessly talking.

EW: I love the word microaggression. I’ve been doing therapy for years and think it’s the best thing ever

Fucking A.

VH: It’s those tiny little moments that each woman knows about and yet there are no words for these things, or at least there haven’t been any words before.

Forget space exploration. This is real pioneering.

EW: There’s so little vocabulary. In Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd, Bathsheba says, "It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language that is made by men to express theirs." You know, I’m trying to express myself in a language that just doesn’t have vocabulary for me.

Could it be that Emma is a gigantic baby?

VH: I often think that one of the most revolutionary things that women could do is to begin to develop words for these feelings that they’ve always had.

Viva la revolucion. These are babies trying to speak.

EW: in the run-up to my 30s, [I felt] this incredible, sudden anxiety and pressure that I had to be married or have a baby or [be] moving into a house. And there was no word for this kind of subliminal messaging and anxiety and pressure that I felt building up but couldn’t really name

We are dealing with imbeciles. 'The Wall'. History is surely replete with countless other names.

EW: I needed to create a definition for something that I didn’t feel there was language for

Kill me now.

EW: we need to reclaim language and space in order to express ourselves, because sometimes it’s really not there.

Feminist geography. Look it up.

EW: I guess there should be no surprise that men created legal systems that generally favored male productive success and interests

Indeed. A gynocentric system will be subsumed and Emma will become a war bride.

EW: the law is language at the end of the day and it can always be interpreted in different ways, so you need someone that has the right intention to apply it in the right way.

Looky here. Language, despite all the dirge above, is secondary. We need stronk, empowered, independent, self-partnered wahmen to 'correctly' interpret it. Lord Emma, you are appointed as grand dictator. Greta can be your 5 star general.

This is a trashfire. My head will explode if I keep reading. Maybe another day...
