So I decided tonight I wanted to see first hand what these “men’s right’s activists” have to say for themselves. I found a forum at standyourground.com and needless to say this is only a small chunk of the absolutely ridiculous, misogynistic, harmful thinking this site has to offer.
First of all, these men have no idea what feminism really is. Feminism is women trying to be equal it’s not a crazy, misandric and oppressive movement designed to eliminate men. Demanding equality is their natural right. Just because girls don’t date you (probably because you’re misogynistic and believe you are superior to women) doesn’t mean that feminism is the source of your “depression and loneliness.” That’s all your fault, man. Sorry to break it to you. Perhaps try treating women as your equals and not as your enemy.
And don’t get me started on the “men’s oppression list” claiming how 99.999% of American casualties in war are men. HMMM I WONDER WHY. Because it wasn’t until recently that women were allowed on the battlefield because men LIKE YOU do not believe they are qualified to be in the military because they’re just going to scream rape the first chance they get.
Because you know, women don’t actually get raped in the military. They just say they do because they’re crazy feminazis trying to take all your glorious power and “equality” away from you.
And you’re right, so right, women have not been oppressed all throughout history. they’ve had the luxury of sitting home, uneducated, used only for sex and domesticity. How lucky are they? Men had to do all the hard work. They had to build everything, they had to take political office, they had sooooo much hard work to do while the girls just sat around and did nothing.
Wait, why did they do nothing? Oh yeah, that’s right, because men wouldn’t fucking let them do anything.
These forums just really annoyed me because these men have absolutely no idea what the word feminism means nor do they know what equality means. They’re angry that they aren’t treated like royalty simply for being a man.
As a man, I am disgusted by other men like this. I cannot even begin to cover everything that they discuss within these forums, and I strongly urge people to actually go on these forums and in a CIVILIZED manner, talk some sense into these people. Educate them on what feminism really means. What equality really means. Offer statistics and sources. Don’t stoop to their level and become “misandric,” because fighting fire with fire is never successful.
I really urge people to be aware of this so called “movement” and keep the word ‘Feminism’ pure and without the negative connotation these people have attached to it.
