the majority of what society and this website defines as “feminism” is borderline or even completely misandry
I’m assuming you didn’t read my “coming from a feminist tag” because I am, in…
Those who support misandry support female domination in place of misogyny. They’re those who don’t believe in equality, they believe in supremacy. My post wasn’t anti-feminist, it was calling out those who take feminism to the extreme and cause people to become very misinformed about what feminism actually is and come up with terms like “feminazi”.
Misandry is on the opposite side of misogyny, gender-wise. It’s just reversed. The majority of what I’ve seen on the feminism tag here on this website and on other websites is actually misandry. I’m not talking about radical feminists or anything, but real women who believe in complete power of the cis female gender in place of men.
Nope, you are wrong. Misogyny is sexism/prejudiced PLUS power. What people perceive as misandry is oppressed people having anger or hatred towards their oppressors. Same way POC can hate white people as a class. Misandry DOES NOT EXIST
But misandry is real.
Those who are misandrists say things like that men are trash or should completely die out “because women can reproduce asexually with bone marrow”. If you haven’t seen things that say that then you must have a really vanilla view on how both sides are at fault, or you just choose to ignore it.
The fact that you’re talking to me like I’m not a feminist, which I’ve stated many times I am and I think it’s quite obvious at this point, really gets on my nerves because it’s as if you don’t think I’m informed. If you don’t think misandry is real then you’re uniformed about the different branches of sexism. It’s not just men against women all the time, there’s women against men, and the fact you choose to ignore that for the sake of keeping up your thought that women are innocent in the feminist movement is showing right now.
No, I’m not defending misogyny and the patriarchy - I try the best I can with my privilege to bring attention to those and fight against them - but I’m not going to completely defend the feminist movement either because NO MOVEMENT IS PERFECT. A movement is only as good as it’s people, and, unfortunate reality check - quite a bit of the people in the movement aren’t perfect.
Which leads me back to the argument that, yes, misandry is real. And the fact that you think it isn’t makes me believe you’re misinformed, uninformed, ignoring the situation, or you’re defending misandrists.
Just because you say you are a feminist does not mean you are. Women are allowed to hate their oppressors, women are allowed to wish the men who have hurt them their entire lives disappeared, women are allowed to want a man free world if they have had to suffer in a man ruled one. If your brand of feminism is more interested in defending men and admonishing women who express their hatred for their abusers, then you are not helping any woman anywhere. I will defend “misandrists” until my dying breath before I defend the hurt feelings of their oppressors. Women hating men have no effect on this man’s world, men hating women gets us fucking killed.
