If you are female, expressing hatred for your own body is not just acceptable, it’s practically de rigeur. Failure to indulge in the requisite amount of self-flagellation – my thighs! my skin! my face! – isn’t just negligent, it’s unfeminine. Self-hatred is fundamental to how femininity is constructed, more fundamental than any of the more obvious external symbols (dress, make-up, shoes). What matters is not that you are beautiful, but you know your place in the beauty hierarchy (and since every woman ages, every woman’s place will eventually be somewhere at the bottom).

Young women are encouraged to bond over their dislike of excess body hair, surplus flesh and “uneven” skin. They are meant to do so in a jovial way, egged on by perky adverts informing them what “real women” do: worry about having underarms beautiful enough for a sleeveless top, celebrate curves with apologetic booty shakes and cackle ruefully over miserable Sex-and-the-City-style lunches of Ryvita and Dulcolax. It’s a gendered ritual; men get football and booze, women get control pants and detoxes. We are supposed, of course, to be grateful. Hey, you don’t have to be perfect! Just know you’re not perfect and act accordingly, with the appropriate levels of guilt and shame!

Fairy tale after fairy tale tells us that what matters is being beautiful “on the inside” but what does that really mean? It means submission, obedience and the suppression of one’s own desires. Don’t be haughty and proud. Clean the hearth. Kiss the frog. Love the beast. Suck it up when you’re replaced by a younger model. Sure, you may look fine, but you mustn’t feel fine. You mustn’t be vain. You mustn’t be angry. All fury and pain must be turned back on itself. That way you’ll be a real princess: silent, fragile and never threatening to challenge the status quo.

I don't think Jew hating is on the rise it seems like it because of the Internet. But many many people all Thewout history have hatted Jews. Unless they live in a place where they where a majority. If you think this is bad imagine if you lived in 1930 in eroupe no one even tried to hide it back then.

Here’s a hint: the Shoah should not be used as a “gotcha” against Jews when we’re talking about antisemitism. To say “at least it isn’t a genocide” is disgusting. You are a disgusting anti-semite trying to cloak yourself in rationality. Here’s something: almost equally, Jews report that they think the rash of antisemitic violence comes from people who have right or left wing views. 

  • In the United Kingdom, there was a 400% rise in documented antisemitic incidents in the month of July compared to the year prior.
  • In Germany, molotov cocktails have been thrown at a synagogue that had been destroyed during Kristallnacht.
  • The EU reports that 66% of European Jews feel that antisemitism is on the rise, with 76% agreeing that antisemitic hatred had increased in the last five years. 
  • Annual total of antisemitic acts in France have risen seven times that what they were in the 1990s. This includes the targeted murder of Jewish children in Toulouse while they were attending school.
  • In May, 2014, four people were murdered at a Jewish museum in Brussels.
  • #UnBonJuif (A Good Jew) trended on Twitter in 2012. The majority of comments were along the lines of “A good Jew is a dead Jew”
  • Ultra right wing nationalist parties in Ukraine, the UK, Greece, Hungary are are gaining more and more supporters. European nationalism is historically built on the blood of Jews. 

This rash of antisemitic hatred started during the economic crisis because of the same, boring reasons as always: Jews are foreign parasites in Europe who are drinking the blood of the economy, without them we’d be better off, they’re too powerful.
