There was a terrible story from ABC-7 in New York City yesterday about a car crash which claimed the life of 25 year-old Harleen Grewal. Here's what the story had to say:
"A woman's body was found in a car after a fiery crash on the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn on Friday morning. Authorities say that the driver---believed to be the man whom she was dating---hailed a cab in the middle of the highway while she burned to death. The car was found facing eastbound in the westbound lanes between Hamilton Avenue and Prospect Expressway just after 4 A.M. The 2007 Infiniti G35 was fully on fire. When firefighters put out the flames, they found a badly burned woman in the passenger seat. She was pronounced dead at the scene."
A witness to the accident filmed her boyfriend, named only as 'Ahmed', fleeing the scene by flagging down a taxi. Ahmed is the Brooklyn Jail currently, for Leaving the Scene of an Accident, although new charges are piling up as we write.
The story brought to mind several articles that have appeared this year from the Manosphere's Red Pill Cult, sneering at white knights who risk their lives protecting or defending women. We saw them deriding men who made themselves human shields during the Las Vegas Massacre; the three men who were stabbed on the Portland PDX; and various other times. Many of these authors have written about the supposed stupidity of historical cases where men died defending their homes or the 1912 Titanic Disaster where men saved the women instead of themselves.
It's not known whether Ahmed read sites like these and was red-pilled himself; but he behaved exactly as these writers advise men to do. He thought of himself first and acted accordingly.
The Red Pills would snort back that Ahmed was justified since postmodern women also treat men as expendable. They would say that since Feminists despise the idea of a needing a man, that Miss Harleen should have been left to fend for herself. The answer to this objection is that it is obviously morally wrong to sacrifice a human life to prove a point. Besides that, if Ahmed had saved her life he would have proven the Feminists wrong; whereas by running away, he reinforces their 'all men are selfish pigs' attitudes.
Men and women are not 'equal' in the sense that we commonly understand it; nor are gender roles artificial social constructs. They are equal in a complimentary sense that the unique strengths of each gender counterbalances the unique weaknesses of the other. Whether one believes this of Divine Inspiration or Evolutionary Necessity, the results are the same. It is for the same reason that the schemes of sexual anarchists on both political extremes can never work in reality---whether so-called 'gay marriage' or the proliferation of sexbots.
From the other side of the coin, Harleen Grewal clearly made a bad choice in men. This is another issue that Feminists want to pretend doesn't exist; but women's bad choices often have fatal consequences like this. Our education of young girls in American society is radically defective. The loss of fathers' and brothers' influence has taken a heavy toll. But the media perverts and the lesbians in academia won't discuss it although they pretend to be looking out for female interests.
Clearly, though, it doesn't serve anybody's interests to encourage men to behave as Ahmed did. Not even his own selfish interests, because he's liable to be jail for quite some time. A lot of others who do what the Red Pills tell them are in the same spot.
