Jordan Peterson on the femininists and Islam

One of the things that I’ve really tried to puzzle out, and it’s not like I believe this. I’m just telling you about the edges of my thinking, of being…is that you have this crazy alliance between the feminists and the radical Islamist that I just do not get. It’s like the feminists, it’s like why aren’t they protesting non-stop about Saudi Arabia? It’s just completely beyond me, like I do not understand it in the least, and I wonder – I just wonder is this what the Freudian means? Is there an attraction, you know, is there an attraction that’s emerging among the female radicals for that totalitarian male dominance that they’ve chased out of the West? That’s a hell of a thing to think, but after all I am psychoanalytically minded, and I do think things like that because like I just can see no rational reason for it. The only other rational reason is that the West needs to fall and so the enemy of my enemy is our, yeah, it’s a guy… Exactly now, what is it I thought that’s wrong with “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Yes, exactly! So elements tend to vote liberal as well, so that that could be the case but I am NOT going to shake my suspicions about this unconscious balancing because as the demand for egalitarianism and the eradication of masculinity accelerates, there’s going to be a longing in the unconscious for the precise opposite for the problem of that. The more you want, the more you scream for equality, the more your unconscious is going to admire dominance. That’s how you think if you’re analytically minded. [Sorry if this isn’t 100% coherent]

In his recent book, 12 Rules…, he says, “When softness and harmlessness become the only consciously acceptable virtues, then hardness and dominance will start to exert an unconscious fascination. Partly what this means for the future is that if men are pushed too hard to feminize, they will become more and more interested in harsh, fascist political ideology.” [p. 199]
