Traditional Hollywood – that is, the aging stars who made Tinsel Town what it is – has no connection to the looney Left-wing cultural rot that is being embraced and pushed by their younger peers.
William Shatner – who made a name for himself as “Captain James T. Kirk” on the original “Star Trek” series in the 1960s, but who went on to carve out additional roles in television and in movies – is one of those aging stars with little patience for political correctness.
As reported by The Ralph Retort, Shatner recently used his Twitter account to roast a transgendered misandrist (a hater of men) in a way that he’s often done to radical feminists and their exclusionary, self-centered and non-traditional ideology.
Though he’s a class act, even Capt. Kirk gets his fill of the stupid that passes for popular culture these days – and in calling out crazy when he sees it, he sets himself apart from the nine-tenths of the other cowards in Hollywood and elsewhere who think the same things but don’t have the stones to speak out.
Radical feminism is nothing new. In fact, the movement began in earnest in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, beginning mostly as a push for equal rights to property and equality of roles in marriage, child-rearing and voting. But in the 1960s and 1970s the movement in the U.S. shifted – dramatically. Rather than simply pushing for “equality,” a right that had been enshrined in the Constitution and in statutory law, the movement hijacked by radical women who campaigned against men for the sake of railing against men.

In Shatner’s case, this twit who claims to be so enlightened, and more so than many of the rest of us despite the fact that she’s been on this earth far less time and has had far fewer life experiences than Shatner, took our hero to task because he dared to point out an obvious truth she didn’t want to hear:
Feminism is great but terms like toxic masculinity are degrading. It borders on that imaginary concept to feminists: misandry. 😉 https://t.co/capA1J4q44

And the tweet storm began. Shatner was lambasted by scores of people who apparently don’t have the brain power or the willingness – or both – to understand what he was saying. Rather, they do what all radical Leftists do, they resort to knee-jerk condemnations of anyone who disagrees with them, as if they’ve cornered the market on knowledge and experience, while at the same time condemning their prey as being intolerant and objectionable.
To a modern feminist – say, Hillary Clinton – everything bad or unfortunate that happens to them is the fault of men and misogyny, which is an ingrained dislike for and prejudice against women. To her, all Trump voters (even the women) are misogynists deep down. Nothing she did was wrong or improper, in her mind, so she passed off their recent presidential loss (her second) as “just another example of how much too many men hate the thought of a woman president.”
No doubt, misogyny exists. But there is also no doubt that misandry exists. What is a myth, however, is that every instance of a man disagreeing with a woman or a woman disagreeing with a man is not misogyny or misandry, respectively. People can and do have disagreements, and most of the time it has nothing to do with sex or sexual preference (in the modern era of transgenderism).
And yet, there are feminists out there who, predictably, only see misogyny, not misandry. And one found Shatner recently.
The Ralph Retort cited this column at The Mary Sue, which began thusly:
On Twitter yesterday, William Shatner got involved in a discussion about misogyny and its imaginary counterpart, “misandry” (you know, “reverse racism’s” cousin?).
Gee – how can you argue with such intelligence? First of all, if some men can have prejudices against women, some women can sure as the world have prejudices against men. In fact, you could even say that all feminists, by the very nature of their anti-male beliefs, are walking, talking examples of misandrists. (Related: Read Why isn’t the Secret Service kicking down Madonna’s door after her threat against President Trump?)
And secondly, memo to the genius who wrote that above: There is no such thing as “reverse racism,” there’s only racism, and all races are guilty.
As for Shatner, no doubt he would love it if that transporter room technology used on his fictional show actually worked so he could transport himself to a planet with more intelligent life.
