Feminist “debunks” myth that feminists hate men–with photo of feminists hating men

August 25, 2014

Scroll down to #3.

Because nothing says “I love men” so succinctly as a pink poster that reads “Don’t rape.”

This piece, linked on the HuffPo, is titled “The 10 Worst Myths about Feminism, Debunked.”

Some excerpts from the debunking:

1.Feminists hate men.

If anything, the feminist critique of unhealthy masculinity drives this “you just hate men” narrative. Feminists want to put an end to catcalling, harassment and abuse of women. But if the vast majority of abuse of all people, including that of women, is at the hands of men, are you a raging man-hater for pointing that out? Of course not.

2.Feminists aren’t funny.

But while there is certainly a seriousness with which feminists address issues like the abuse and murder of trans women, for example, there are a million examples of feminists who are funny as heck.  

Don’t get me wrong, I love Jon Stewart as much as the next person, but Lizz Winstead, who co-founded The Daily Show (oh, and Air America and activist-minded comedy group Lady Parts Justice) is one of the funniest people in America.

Here’s the Lady Parts Justice link. You’ll explode from laughing.

3.Feminists are hysterical.

***

“Hysterical” is a term historically thrown at women to silence them. It dictates that any analysis or complaint raised is inherently over the top. For example, feminists who argued that rape culture is a problem that needs to be seriously addressed are often dismissed as overly emotional and exaggerating.

Hey, feminists, are you sure you want to continue through the next seven “myths”? As Will Rogers said, “If you find yourself in a hole, quit digging.”

    I suspect proclaiming point #1 — feminists don’t hate men — is the entire point of the post. For a variety of reasons, feminists have discovered they need men to participate in and support feminism’s next wave of hegemony.

    Therefore, as part of feminism’s relentless drive toward totalitarian power, feminists are now waging peace against men. To further this campaign feminists made strategic and tactical adjustments, and are inviting men to join them for discussion inside feminist ideological space. It’s no surprise to find a reference to bell hooks, the originator of a feminist concept of humanist “love” under which feminists and men can join to make common cause on behalf of feminism. Everywhere we look, we see feminist outreach accompanied by superficially conciliatory posturing, repackaging, and a calculated, tongue-biting shift away from 40 years of demonizing and abuse directed at men.

  2. The only problem: Feminist men have to buy into feminist women’s man-hating.

  3. Sorry I just can’t get past the misandry and the hateful things feminists say.
