The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 115 In Simone de Beauvoir's famous work The Second Sex (, she wrote one of the most famous lines in feminist thought: "One is not born but becomes woman." This statement, and her articulation of what it means, outlines the modern-turned-postmodern Gnostic cult we know as feminism. Her point is that women, meaning people who are female, have two choices in how they "become woman." They can follow the social expectations laid upon them by patriarchal society, in effect becoming Woman-for-Man, or they can throw off the entire sex binary, patriarchal control, and all societal expectations and, in effect, become Woman-in-Herself, the gnostically liberated Woman as she can only be outside of the influence of the demiurgic power of patriarchal society. In this groundbreaking episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay unveils this basic truth about feminism, at least since Beauvoir, relates it back to the entire construction of Modern and Postmodern Gnosticism, and discusses its many implications. Join him to understand feminism and feminist activism in a way like never before, including why it continues to fail to push back effectively against Queer Theory and Trans Rights Activism.
