Anyone familiar with my blog is fairly familiar with my take on feminism. My assertions are often countered by women proclaiming that feminism isn’t really bad; that the things I relate are only representative of a small, extreme, fringe element, are taken out of context or, the ultimate denial, that they are simply not a part of feminism. I addressed this contention in my post The Truth About Feminism. Despite the plethora of supporting evidence to my position presented in this post, I continue to receive comments from self-proclaimed feminists denying the dark and insidious nature of feminism.
I’m often astounded by how little these women actually know and understand about the movement they support. I can’t imagine choosing to label myself something without an extensive knowledge and understanding of that label, yet, women continue to label themselves feminists while refusing to accept or believe what feminism really is.
There seems to be a perpetual attempt to reinvent and reclaim feminism….something tantamount to trying to reinvent and reclaim Nazism in my eyes. It doesn’t matter how you repackage or try to sell it…it’s never going to be anything more than a hate movement. Anything built upon a foundation of hate and lies will always eventually fall back to the invidious roots that support it.
Feminism was never a peaceful, loving movement interested only in equal treatment and opportunity for all. Even with today’s attempt to package it up to appear more palatable, feminists still fail to make even the merest pretense of caring about the rights or concerns of anyone besides women. When was the last time you saw a feminist say, “Holy crap! Women are falsely accusing men of rape right and left….we need to do something about this!”? How many feminists have you heard express concern for the disproportionate number of men committing suicide or sitting in jail? How many feminists concern themselves with the rights of men to have access to their children?
Feminists go so far as to justify and even celebrate injustices and misfortunes that befall men if they believe those miseries will somehow benefit women. It’s “good” for a man to be raped because then he will have more empathy for the plight of female rape victims. It’s acceptable for innocent men to sit in jail, wrongly accused and convicted, if it means eliminating the odd chance that an actual rapists goes free.
Feminists could care less about men, families, children, society….unless it somehow directly affects or benefits women. They could care less about any injustices suffered by men…because feminism is built on a foundation of hatred and lies; hatred for the natural differences of and the bonds between men and women; lies that women have been perpetually abused and oppressed by men.
Feminists have no concern for men because they believe that men deserve any injustices that befall them. They want men to pay and to suffer for abuses allegedly perpetrated against women. At heart, they are destructively jealous of masculinity and loathing of femininity.
Feminism refuses to acknowledge or recognize the sacrifices of men. Women were not oppressed by men. They were cared for, loved and sheltered by men. Men fought, bled and died for their wives and children. The greatest love of all is to lay down one’s life for another…and this is what feminists have dubbed “oppression”….effectively twisting and vilifying tremendous love and sacrifice.
Feminism is not and never was a movement for the majority of women. It was engendered by a small subset of women, predominantly lesbian, who truly sought and desired for the sexes to be separate. The average woman’s idea of Utopia is in no way parallel to that inspired by feminism. A world where the bonds between men and women have been broken is not a world that most women want. Women have allowed feminists, a group that in no way represents their interests or desires....to represent their interests and desires.
So feminists, please, spare me the rhetoric about the "true nature" of feminism. I know, far better apparently then you do, the true nature of feminism. Feminism is a hate movement. It is only concerned with expanding it's own perverse and fallacious concept of the interests of women....expanding them at the expense of everyone and everything else. I'm not interested in trying to distort the truth in order to make it more palatable. Feminism is the rattle snake on the mountain....I know what it is and I'm not interested in picking it up.
