No, that doesn't make any sense.
You mean my swastika metaphor? No, it has nothing to do with feminism being related to nazism. It was just to show how something's meaning can change for the worse in the perception of the public if it is abused enough. But nice attempt at using your brain, here's another treat. You'll get more if you start using punctuation.It all goes back to relating it to nazism isnt it
You could say the same, but you would be wrong.
But I do know what privilege *is*
It’s something I truly can’t understand and it’s to the point where I honestly don’t believe I could ever be a good boyfriend or husband
and no longer even know how to initiate a relationship because I don’t want to mix romance and sex with any relationship.
My point is that at some point in time, in order for gender equality to persist in the least damaging fashion, an adversarial attitude needs to be replaced with one of cooperation and that is absolutely undeniable.
wanting to raise awareness for men’s issues is perceived as some sort of nascent incel state terrorist bull****.
If feminists can’t acknowledge that and pivot to ensure women as well as men understand that raising a family takes a stable household then the movement is doomed.
Women need fathers too for ****s sake. If there was a worldwide movement focusing solely on toxic femininity and ignoring toxic masculinity I would be livid too. The whole idea is difficult for me to wrap my tiny brain around because if we’re pursuing gender equality shouldn’t it just be toxicity? Am I wrong?
Sometimes I do let out more personal feelings than I should. I don’t mean to lash out but I’m not railing against women, I’m criticizing a movement and talking about my experiences.
Sadly, I believe if feminism had a different name, the movement would’ve been far more successful by now. Making that simple point has for sure attracted a ton of hostility as if I personally were the mentally damaged enemy stopping equality from being a reality and in need of psychological help. But I’m just a person trying my best to do good. How couldn’t I feel frustrated or cynical?
Yes, I am aware that you are **** at reading people other than yourself. You method is practically painting your own flaws on others and attacking them by that without, yes, an open mind and patience. And I don't do baiting; I'm capable of getting convinved that I'm wrong, and it happened a lot before. But you'd need to present proper arguments for that, which you don't do. You only attack the person without any understanding of 'em. Yes, I use personal attacks in my posts too, which I learned here on this very forum along the years. But I try to add actual substance to my arguments. I know I have a certain posting style wwhich makes said arguments get misunderstood or fly over some people's heads, but the attempt to to add substance is there, I promise. Contrary to that, this post of yours only have misinformation about me and calling my argument a bait. That's not real substance.I'm not so sure about that. I'm not quite certain that you're capable of expressing any emotion aside from contempt, and you definitely don't have a solid track record for having an open mind, nor patience, about things you don't understand. In retrospect, your post was pretty obvious bait that I shouldn't have replied to, but here we are.
Out of curiosity, how many groups built around spreading awareness and educating issues handled by the concept feminism are you a member of - be it in your local community, or just at work? And how many lectures have you watched from your local community college or university on the subject. And beyond that, how deeply have you delved into the voluminous literature available on the subject?
And yet the movement has been very successful. The fact people discuss it to any degree on a daily basis demonstrates it's success, no matter how uneducated some parties choose to make themselves on the topic. Policy makers all over the west, both corporate and political, push through and maintain policies all the time (despite attempts for reactionaries to push back said efforts).
So I don’t know, am I an edgy, incel reactionary trying to live out a male dominated fantasy spewing filth to undo the progress of feminism because of my hatred of women and my little pp cowardliness is afraid of giving up a teensy bit of power? I personally don’t think so. More power to the sperm banks I say. It does disturb me to be accused of such things though because that is someone who I never was nor ever will be.
"My advice: Therapy." is a really arrogant and insensitive thing to say, without any regard to what assistance should the actual person need. It really shows your stance on things: "if you don't think and behave like me, you need a doctor." Don't do that, it makes you look like a horrible person.
Your hostile tone and your high horse made it clear from the beginning that you mean "My advice: Therapy" as "You are an idiot". It's pretty obvious, but nice attempt at sugarcoating it. The malice or hostility doesn't disappear just because you claim after that there wasn't any.Suggesting that a person might benefit from seeing a doctor is not an insult.
groups have been actively working to make "feminist" a dirty word
Women habe been on the short end of things for the last centuries.
I think it's bad taste to complain that they want to be treated more equally now.
