Unfortunately, he seems to misunderstand that White Knighting exists in the context of “enabling women’s bad behavior” not in “traditional gender role politeness.” The hallmark of a White Knight is that no matter how cruel, abusive, stupid, immature, or downright illegal a woman’s behavior might be, he will leap to her rescue, verbally or physically. He will do his very best to uphold left-wing feminist dogma, whatever it happens to be this week, even if that means he’s spouting off PC BS that nobody with a functioning brain actually believes.
How can you tell Rich isn’t a White Knight?
He admits to the fundamental truth that the mean strength of men is higher than the mean strength of women. This is ABSOLUTELY verboten in feminist dogma – I got de-friended on Facebook for pointing that out to a college classmate of mine. (Who, BTW, thinks she deserves to have free birth control, because she chose to get a doctorate and write poetry as a career, and owes $800+ a month in student loan fees. We went to the same college; I stopped at a bachelor’s degree, and only owe $100/mo. She also thinks that any boorish behavior on the part of any individual male is proof of the Patriarchy and Rape Culture. I got tired of this constant insulting of my husband, father, and brother, so I’m not sorry she de-friended me; it was actually rather amusing, as statistics had just come out that de-friending is how liberals deal with Facebook conflict – while conservatives are far more likely to engage in debate. She couldn’t have been more Stereotypically Feminist if she tried – unless she divorces her husband to become a lesbian, of course.)
