In an interview Henry Cavill did with GQ Australia a few weeks ago, he made the mistake of being a classical sort of man. The kind of man that most women would love to have the attention of, yet the kind of man who is also speared at the hips by feminists in media.
Cavill did a long-form interview with GQ which was eventually turned into a chopped up written piece and we’ll never fully know the context, conversation, or question leading up to the answer, but Cavill was written saying, “There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.”
Because the interviewer and her editors probably didn’t show appreciation for this kind of man, let me take a moment out of this blog to say, yes, Cavill. You’re not the only person who thinks like this and by looking at what sells in the women’s romance sections of movies and books, I’m not the only one that thinks it’s great either. I’m personally a very reserved person and I’ve never been in the dating scene because I’m just sort of shy, but when I go out to look for a man, I want a man who isn’t afraid to be a man. I don’t want to be the only one chasing (and I don’t want to make it a tiresome game either). But women want to know they’re desired in the same way men want to know they’re desired. I think there’s something incredibly charming about a man who will chase and woo a woman.
I go back to this story I heard on the radio of this man who saw this woman he was enamored by at the gym. He asked her to dinner, she said no. Over the next few months, he waited, talked to her, and tried again ten more times before she finally said yes. After they went on the date, they had an incredible time and sometime after that, they became engaged. This wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t continued to pursue after she said no and this is something that so many people nowadays don’t understand — the flirtatious game of chasing and wooing and I have to agree with Cavil that there’s something very attractive about this traditional game of courting.
I’ve gotten into it with coworkers before for saying, “No doesn’t always mean /no/.” Sometimes no means not right now. Sometimes no means try again later. If you have kids that ask you for something, they’re not going to take no and leave it at that forever. They’ll take the first no, wait, and ask again later. The same thing goes for wooing and in many other situations.
Cavill added to the comment by saying, “It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to called a rapist or something.’ So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and just go back to a relationship, which never really worked. I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen? Now? Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No’. It’s like, ‘OK, cool’. But then there’s the ‘Oh why’d you give up?’ and it’s like ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?'”
Of course feminists, with their outrage culture and their victim complex, couldn’t take this for what Cavill was actually saying.
The funniest thing about these people is that they prove exactly what Cavill was saying to be a legitimate fear. He didn’t sympathize with rapists, he didn’t say it was okay, but he said he worried interacting with women because you can be called a rapist for literally anything.
This #MeToo culture has set any man up to be a “rapist” if he’s not rich or hot enough for the woman to accept his compliments. A man can say, “You’re beautiful,” and if the woman isn’t impressed, she can take to social media @ the guy, and call him a sleazy rapist wannabe for hitting on her because she didn’t want it from him. I’d be afraid to approach women if I were a man.
I’m not jealous of men in the dating scene because of this as one of the reasons. Women can be happily in a relationship and the moment they decide they’re done with you or they have enough resources or history to get the judge to side with them, they can claim abuse, and in our gynocentric court system, they can win and destroy a man’s life.
Women have been using “rapist” as a synonym for “regretting sex with someone later.” The whole idea behind “MeToo” is “listen and believe.” No further evidence is necessary and this idea means that you have to pretend women are pure-hearted and would never lie. Some progressives even say women would never lie about this — knowing that women are human and can be selfish and evil creatures too. If they deny women’s ability to lie, then they are deluding themselves in a god complex that circles the vagina.
Sure, anyone can rescind consent to sex at any time before it happens, but you can’t retroactively rescind consent and then claim your partner is a rapist. That’s BS and that’s exactly what Cavill was getting at.
As a successful man, he’s at more risk than an average Joe. A woman like any of them making these tweets could see the opportunity, go for him, and then trap him in a PR nightmare over a lie she made to selfishly become powerful with her vagina.
“I’m helpless,” these women claim. “I’m always the victim,” they snicker as they use their made up victimhood as currency, destroy trust between the sexes, and ruin flirting forever.
Donna Dickens here paints Cavill with a brush of guilt because he stated he doesn’t want to be mistaken as a rapist for courting a woman.
This day and age, women could only be so lucky as to have a man like Cavill wish to woo them. This is where it’s so ridiculous. Women want men to want them so badly — even these women. They make up these rapist/stalker fantasies because it is so hot to even them that a man would want them so much, he would be willing to break the law for them.
What Cavill shouldn’t be taken that he doesn’t know how to date. What’s said here is actually a more disturbing statement on our culture and the state of relationships between men and women.
Our relationships and the dynamics between men and women have been twisted and hurt so badly that Cavill knows he can’t trust one of the most basic interactions with a woman he is interested in.
Basic human relations in society are suffering and feminists are taking this opportunity to do a happy dance. What blows my mind is these people will claim to be the biggest victims out there while also waving around the ‘rapist’ claim like a loaded gun in order to keep men in place. These people literally threaten men with allegations that could ruin their lives. Feminists are social terrorists and they’re destroying something that most of us enjoy; flirtation, courtship, and the relationship between men and women.
People like you, Lainey, and everyone I’ve posted above from Twitter, are exactly telling men to stop flirting. You’re telling men that you hold the gun that can make or break their lives and so they best behave. Women have set the standard for eye-rape. You’ve made any interaction you don’t want sexual harassment and want is determined by how hot the guy and/or how deep his pockets.
You are telling everyone to stop flirting and allow YOU to pick who is ALLOWED the GRACE of talking to you. You treat all men like they’re predators by virtue of being men. Perhaps I should treat all women like conniving harpies out to steal from men and use children as leverage for emotional and financial ruin because you just give off those vibes.
You think you’re a goddess and you’re ruining it for the rest of us.
Feminism is cancer.
And Henry Cavill did nothing wrong.
