Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

What sort of person thinks their political/social enemies have small penises?

It's an interesting question.

What sort of deviation of mind would cause someone to create a theory of the other in terms of their inferior penis size?


It's pretty standard thinking in some circles, like cage-fighting culture, perhaps. And wartime propaganda, of course. During WWII there was a lot of stuff about Hitler having one testicle. During WWI there was a lot of stuff about the Kaiser's withered arm. The physical shortcomings of Napoleon, who was not freakishly short except by the standards of the aristocracy (who were typically taller than commoners), were of great interest to the British.

But to be a common turn of mind in supposedly progressive circles suggests some deep rot somewhere.

This is up there with the hilarity of prison rape (for people one doesn't like), and the infamy of gay conduct (when done by men one does not like).

It's like, "I want the fun of thinking like a savage, but with the self-righteousness of the moralist, so I get off on employing the forms of bigotry and oppression directed against only evil people."

Kind of like Dexter. (A TV character who is a ritualistic serial killer while living in a rationalization construct wherein he is one of the good guys.)

2. People with small cars?

It's a standard knee-jerk accusation, like saying "I want some of what they're smoking" or, as you note, wishing prison rape on someone.

But it is true about Hummer drivers.

4. What about women who are in the NRA? Do they have large or small uteruses?

Be kind. What they're trying to say is that NRA people are overcompensating for psychological insecurities. But they have trouble formulating such nuanced analyses of what drives the formulation of such toxic and socially corrosive policy decisions because they have small penises.

Penis envy is a Freudian concept...little girls are envious and wish they had a penis of their own, according to him. Which makes one wonder about Freud's own problems with female anatomy.

We in the military have a huge hard o.. err huge love for the penis. Never in such great numbers will you see so much penis play. Tea-bagging passed out friends, slap ass games. Ive never seen such greatly detailed penis art than in some of the shitters that Ive been in. Im talking, veins, hair, warts and all.

18. I don't think "small penis" should be thrown around as an insult.

People act like that is the worst thing you could say about a man. But that isn't the measure of a man. It has nothing to do with his character, his worth, or even his ability to please a woman sexually.

I don't have a problem with hurling insults at assault weapon owners or Hummer drivers, but let's not throw innocent people under the bus in the process by using one of their unchangeable physical characteristics as the "ultimate" insult.

21. It's a distraction from the actual topics.

It's based on Freud's ideas of compensation. Freud was not wrong about every thing, but he attributed a lot to sex and genitals that didn't weather modern psychoanalysis.

The average penis size is what, 5.5 inches? 6?

I could make a case for males who aren't compensating, but celebrating penis size with guns and cars. It would be complete bullshit because I just made it up.

The only penis I'm interested in is my husbands. (Well I'm a nurse so I've seen literally hundreds of penis's, but that's clinical)

I won't get into the whole phallic symbol thing.

Suffice it to say its a very rude analogy and probably completely inaccurate.

Must be some sort of self-projection unto others. Denigrate your adversaries in an attempt to cope with your own penile (or feminine sexual) dysfunctions/inadequacies. Like the insecure bully on the playground who picks on others because, ultimately, they despise themself.
