Johnny Depp/Amber Heard Trial Destroy Me Too Motion

We argued over time that any ideology that’s not primarily based on morality and sensible purpose or in the end Logos will sooner or later be lowered to ashes. For instance, check out Femen. In 2013 Inna Shevchenko, the chief of the Femen motion who occurs to be Ukrainian, was working round actually bare in a lot of Europe and saying issues like, “We will do every part, and so Femen are type of feminist al-Qaida, in order for you. We’re feminist terrorists coming and displaying how it’s.”[1] Shevchenko continued:

“We’re feminism’s shock troops, a spearhead unit of militants, a contemporary incarnation of the phrase fearless. Our nakedness assaults the uncooked nerve of the historic battle between ladies and ‘the system.’

“We’re nothing lower than its most visible and becoming embodiment. Our activists’ our bodies symbolize undisguised hatred for the patriarchal order, and show the brand new aesthetics of a rejuvenated lady’s revolution.”[2]

A few of Femen’s slogans have been “Our mission is protest, our weapons are naked breasts,” “Nudity is liberty,”[3] “My Boobs, My Bombs,” “My Physique, My Gun,”[4] “topless jihad,” “our tits are deadlier than your stones,” “Muslim ladies, let’s get bare,”[5] and so on.

Bare breasts, Shevchenko tells us, are “political devices. Our breasts are speaking; our breasts are screaming” for “a brand new that means. That is my political weapons.” “With our political breasts,” she stated elsewhere, “we’re stunning, irritating, horrifying, inspiring.”[6]

She as soon as once more postulated:

“We imagine that if ladies are left with little greater than satisfying sexual needs as a life objective, then our sexuality should turn into politicised. We aren’t denying our potential to be handled as intercourse objects. Quite the opposite, we’re taking our sexuality into our personal arms, turning it in opposition to our enemy. We’re reworking feminine sexual subordination into aggression, and thereby beginning the true struggle.

Inna Shevchenko

“Make no mistake about it: we’re at struggle. That is an ideological struggle, a struggle of traditionalism in opposition to modernity, oppression in opposition to freedom, dictatorship in opposition to the best to free expression. We’re focusing on the three precept manifestations of patriarchy: faith, the intercourse trade, and dictatorship.”[7]

“We should not fall into the entice of self-censorship and create restrictions for ourselves in order to keep away from ‘offending somebody’s beliefs.’”[8]

Hearken to the logic very rigorously right here: Shevchenko means to inform us all that it’s freedom of speech to get bare in public locations and even to actually and publicly crouch down and urinate on an image of a grimacing Viktor Yanukovich (Ukrainian president) with out getting arrested,[9] however as a result of she was morally and intellectually crippled, she couldn’t see why a predator would try to rape her whereas she is strolling round bare and boasting about her tits.

Anyway, the place is Femen now? Is it actually thriving and flourishing? Or is it a dying ideology?

It’s nearly the identical factor with the MeToo motion. After the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard verdict, the New York Occasions put out an article entitled, “Is the #MeToo Motion Dying?”, during which we discovered this assertion: “…the defamation case between the actors Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, which turned on Heard’s self-description in a 2018 Washington Put up op-ed as a consultant of home abuse, has been learn as a low-water mark for the motion.”[10]

Michelle Goldberg wrote an article entitled, “Amber Heard and the Loss of life of #MeToo.”[11] Goldberg, as a feminist, needed to put the blame on one thing else. She stated: “There appears, nevertheless, to be a broader misogynist frenzy at work, one attribute of the deeply reactionary second we’re residing by way of.”[12] In different phrases, it’s not Amber Heard’s repeated lies and inconsistent testimonies that destroy the MeToo motion. It’s misogyny. Whole nonsense.

Tarana Burke, founding father of the MeToo motion, may have simply made a powerful case if she explicitly disavowed Heard’s repeated lies in court docket. However she got here with pitchforks defending her motion as if to say that fact doesn’t matter:

“You all need to play ping pong and have your manner with the hashtag as a result of it doesn’t imply something to you so that you attempt to kill it each few months. However it means one thing to hundreds of thousands and hundreds of thousands of oldsters. It means freedom. It means group. It means security. It means energy. You’ll be able to’t kill us. We’re past the hashtag. We’re a motion.”[13]

Nicely, Ms. Burke, do you agree with Amber Heard saying that she donated the 7 million {dollars} which he accrued from her divorce case when in reality she by no means did? Do you agree with Amber Heard working with TMZ after which denying the identical factor in court docket? The place does this tissue of lies finish?

Anyway, it needs to be identified by now that the Depp/Heard trial has nearly actually ended the MeToo motion. Everybody can now go dwelling. Social gathering is over.
