Anonymous said: Why do you hate feminest so much??? all I see is you attacking them all the time
I don’t hate feminists at all. Some of my closest “real life” friends are feminists. I support them and I support the equality for which feminism strives.
But what you see on tumblr most of the time isn’t feminism. It’s this bastardized female supremacy bullshit based on marginalizing anyone who disagrees with their agenda. Basically, all the rhetoric devolves to the lowest common denominator of insulting men in an effort to elevate themselves. In a word it is bullying and it tries to legitimatize itself by claiming “feminism”.
Most serious feminists try to separate themselves from these type of people because it damages the cause for equality as a whole and ruins the message. For every old, white ‘man of power’ that is ‘the patriarchy’ all they have to do is point to the radical female supremacist and say, “Do we want that?” It has put the cause of feminism back at least ten years because people think that is what feminism is all about and they want nothing to do with it.
Frankly, the female supremacists are the reason for the whole modern anti-feminism movement with people creating signs and videos stating “I don’t need feminism because…”
It is sad, really… Ultimately, they will fail, of course. But in the meantime you have a whole generation of women growing up trying to sort out real feminism from the faux feminism. The catchy slogans and soundbites are great but I trust the intelligence of most women to sort out the difference.
Anyways… That’s your answer.
