Stephanie Hallet Cares

August 31, 2011

Stephanie Hallett of Ms magazine wants you to believe she cares… about pigs. According to her activist friends, McDonald’s is abusing their pigs. That certainly is noble of her to sign a petition to end pig abuse. After all, those pigs are pretty darn cute. That Stephanie Hallett is a real humanitarian. Somebody should give her a Nobel Peace Prize.

But I wonder if she cares about human beings as much as she cares about pigs. I know she cares a lot about college girls who drink too much. And women who are labeled sluts. But I wonder if that is the extent of her caring.

I wonder how she treats loved ones? I wonder how she treats people who care for her and treat her with respect. Respect that she may or may not deserve. I wonder if she would sign a petition to end emotional abuse by histrionic personalities? Or is the suffering of pigs more relevant?

I wonder how she feels about infidelity? Or backstabbing? Or trash talking? I bet she’s a really really nice person once you get to know her. She seems like the kinda gal you’d want to bring home to mom and dad. The kind of woman you’d want to marry in a hurry. But then again, I’ve been wrong before.

She works really hard to give people the impression that she’s a quality human being. I hope that’s not just an act for the public. I’d like to think that she’s a genuinely good person. I must admit I have known some feminists who were not all that nice. They seemed kind of angry and hateful. They hate men as much as they hate eating pork. Somehow those two things are correlated. Go figure.

I’ve overheard some of these man-haters say that “all men are pigs”. But, don’t they like pigs? Don’t they care? I’m so confused. Or maybe, they’re the ones who are confused.

    Before you mistake Stephanie Hallett for a pacifist, consider that she was the one who started the blog war between Savory Dish and the angry mob at Tigerbeatdown.

    Beware of those who instigate hostility (yes, this includes passive-aggressive hostility) and then turn around to play victim… or pretend to be Mother Theresa. Beware of those who put on a benevolent face for the crowd. Don’t be surprised to find a very different face under the mask.

    Beware of those who would use altruism to compensate for the horrible things they have done in the past and present.

    Being two-faced is the result of ambivalent emotions. It produces contradictions in values and behavior. This kind of person is both a sinner and a saint… troublemaker and peacemaker. This person is very confused… very troubled.

      People like Stephanie Hallett have embraced a Call Out Culture. But don’t particularly care for it when they are the ones being called out. It’s not as fun when someone else gets to play the victim.

      Beware of those who recruit proxies. These are people who look for other people to fight their battles. They play the martyr and then send their minions on false crusades. A very clever way of keeping their hands clean. This is how you know you are dealing with an abusive passive-aggressive, a silent abuser.

        A silent abuser is one who presents a do-gooder image for the public and then acts like a monster in private. But just because their abuse is discreet, doesn’t mean it is any less abusive.

        Studies have shown emotional abuse is just as harmful as physical abuse. Perhaps it is even more harmful because it is more easily hidden.

        It is too easy for manipulative monsters to deny charges of abuse. If the monster is really manipulative they will accuse you of the very crime they are committing.

    So far Stephanie Hallett has waged a very public war with the FBI, the NY Times, Savory Dish, and now McD’s. Is this a holy war? Or is this a woman who is lashing out with blind rage and indignation? Is she trying to tell us how much pain she is in?

    Let she who is free from sin cast the first stone. So can we assume that Stephanie Hallett is free of sin? Because she is very good at casting stones.

    I have told my story. I wish Stephanie Hallett would tell hers.

      Perhaps this is just another case of misdirected anger but I have this nagging suspicion that Stephanie Hallett’s anger can not be soothed with petitions and outrage.

    I have found that people who are obsessed with changing the world are really avoiding personal change. But there are no petitions for personal change. Change.org is not a place where people go to change themselves. But isn’t that where social change begins?

    If Stephanie Hallett took care of herself and treated the people around herself with respect, then maybe the world would finally become a better place.
