Well, I was pleasantly wrong about the other feminist not approving my comment. At any rate, here is another feminist talking about anti-feminism (as she perceives it.)
And my response:
“Antimisandry is all about pushing women down even further so men can feel powerful. Their whole premise is that women are getting too powerful and therefore have a hatred for men. But the people on this site completely ignore the fact that most feminists believe in equality of the sexes, not in dominating men.”
I’m going to turn your own statement back on you Feminism is about pushing men even farther down (men have always been the disadvantaged sex) so that women can feel powerful Their whole premise is that men are getting too powerful and therefore have a hatred for women. But they completely ignore the fact that most anti-feminists believe in equality of the sexes, not in dominating women.
You don’t have any objection to that, do you? There is something you should understand. Anti-feminists do not ignore your claim that feminists want equality. We just don’t believe it. When a feminist was advocating that Father’s Day be replaced with “Castration Day,” she said that it was for “equality.” (She ultimately took the site down because too many of the “wrong people” were seeing it.) Feminists always say that they are pursuing “equality.” It plays well. And it got them a lot of good publicity.
I have never seen a feminist object to the fact that over 90% of workplace deaths are men. Not once. They are always fighting to get women into the prestigious positions and want to bypass the 90 workweeks that men have to go through to get there (and the men usually don’t get there anyway.) Feminists are quite correct when they say that most CEOs are men. But they ignore what these men had to do to get there. And they also ignore all the men who put in the same effort, but didn’t get there. Feminists want women to have a “royal road” to the top positions. either they don’t see the effort men put in, or they don’t care
Feminists also never object to the fact that most homeless are men. There are many programs in place for when a woman is down on her luck. She will be given shelter. But a man? Too bad. There’s no room. The spots are reserved for women. Sewer workers are men, Construction workers are men. Garbage collectors are men — although now that they don’t have to lift the garbage into the truck manually, that may change.. And dirty, disgusting, dangerous, unwanted job will be done by men. And the feminist vision of “equality” keeps it that way. Feminists only see the CEOs.
Women start off privileged as compared to most men. That’s simply a fact of life and it’s not going to change any time soon. And there aren’t many men who want to bring women down to the level of the common man. But feminists have been seeking to push men down even farther. And it has reached a breaking point. That is why you see anti-feminists.
